    Hey guys, first of all I'd like to thank the community on this forum for being so helpful so far, I came here without knowing anything about IM/SEO and now I feel like I can start a SEO blog monetized with affiliate links. I started my first 3 websites and I am excited to see how it'll go.

    But there are still two questions that bother me deeply.

    #1 In the Journey section I see tons of threads about making $100 a day with adsense, and it is implied that making $10-30 a day is very easy; however, when I go to flippa most of the websites on sale have tons of content, but make almost no money. Is this because the bulk of flippa doesn't know what they're doing, or is it because only a very small amount of people can actually make 20-30 dollars a day easily?

    #2 No one ever talks about Link Emperor, I have e-mailed with their customer service a bit and tried their trial, and it looks very legit. I feel like if you put the campaign settings right that you would have the same pro's as a manual link campaign. Why isn't it widely recommended? Too expensive for the amount of links?

    #1 Make no mistake, nothing is easy. It may come easy to some people but in general it is not easy. You have to have a combination of a few things - good kw research, good on-site SEO and off-site SEO, the best way to monetize. A very small % of people actually make good money. However, this is not something to be discouraged about. You try and you may fail, but along the way you learn something very valuable and and put that experience to good use next time you try. This is how people become successful.

    #2 No idea about Link Emperor but I did a Google search and I found the top result to be a review from a reputed blog. Maybe that can nudge you in the right direction.

    #1 I am planning to stick with it and work hard at least for the next 10 months after those 10 months I will need to re-prioritize due to graduating college, so fingers crossed.

    #2 Matthew Woodward is the one who guided me to Link Emperor to begin with yes, but I would like to hear some opinions on 'the street', as reputable Matthew might be, he himself does not use Link Emperor. He only did a free trial and reviewed the interface. Other reviewers I simply do not trust because of affiliate links, or hastily written articles because Link Emperor "was hot"

    Most of the Sites doenst sign up for Adsense so it cannot imply that those websites are not earning anything.. There are many websites which got hundreds of pages and still no adsense. So it doesnt mean that those websites are not popular. There are different types of buyers on flippa, some buy websites of adsense earnings, some may buy huge content websites, some buy high pr websites etc, So its totally different

    About link emperor some points have been raised of getting punished due to the recent panda/penguin while some of them are still very confident of link emperor because of its new module and its new features added after the penalization.

    He guided you to LinkEmperor because of its aff program. Its not recommended here because you can find better services here on BHW.

    It's not aff program, it is a paid review. It costs $1,000 (if I remember correctly ) to have your product reviewed by him

    ^ this, if it would be that easy half of the world would be doing it as in many countries $20-30 would be enough for very good living. Also, if it would be so easy to make $20-30 it would be also easy for many to scale it up for much larger amounts which is not true for most of us.

    This is what made me skeptical, making a $100 a day within 4 months would mean that you will have 3000 to invest every month to scale up. That would make anyone rich real quick.

    That is what I was afraid of concerning Link Emperor. So when you speak of getting better links on BHW, do you mean a complete package with link diversity and drip, similar to Link Emperor, or would I have to "create my own link package" by buying services individually.

    This is why I like forums a lot more than big blogs, not a lot of people here make money for answering questions, so it's more unbiased. Thanks again for the replies guys.
