    I have recently figured out about IM. So the last week or so i have been researching as much as i can about it. i have been trying to figure out all i can. Reading stickes, reading other threads, and lots of google searching. But i still cant figure everything out 100%. Can someone please help me a bit. I read the stickes and unnderstand some things but i dont understand alot. there are certain terms and things people say that i dont understand.

    so here is pretty much what i understand. and questions.

    make a website.
    get google adsense and put ads on it.
    wait for people to click the adds.
    get money.

    heres the questions:

    -where can i make a website, and what all do i need o be able to have adds on it?
    -how do i get Google adsense? can anyone get it or do you have to apply?
    -how do it get my site high ranked in google?
    -anything else im missing? any advice is appreciated.

    Buy a domain. Preferably with the niche in the name(highest searches a month) howtoremoveblackheadsdotcom --- Get it from Namecheap - Don't go daddy.

    Get hosting. Start small until you have problems handling all the traffic. I use hostwinds. I paid 16 bucks for 3 months. Hostwind customer service are AWESOME! First time using it, I used the chat(live 24hours a day) and Daniel helped me out, even fixed a few problems I had created . He helped me get everything on 2 sites running in no time.

    Create a wordpress site. Wordpress is free. You can find wordpress templates in the download section of this website.

    Your set!

    There are two Wordpresses. There's Wordpress.com and Wordpress.org

    Wordpress.com is a web 2.0 site much like blogspot.com
    You want .org

    Luckily though, website hosting companies have made it easy to upload the Wordpress.org files to your server space instead of you having to download them from Wordpress.org and upload them yourself. Hostgator.com is one such host. It's under "Fantastico" in your Cpanel. Here's a video tutorial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuolWmyCeYw

    After you have those files installed, you have a website. It's in blog format, but with the endless themes available, you can have almost any kind of website you want.

    You can do this, don't be intimidated it's easy once you get the hang of it.

    EDIT: Get your domain name from Namecheap.com then point it to Hostgator DNS. Here's a video tutorial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYzZbyXSYFE

    To recap:
    1) Buy domain from namecheap.com
    2) Buy baby hosting plan from hostgator.com
    3) Point Namecheap domain to Hostgator DNS
    4) Install wordpress via Fantastico

    Go through the downloads section (don't go crazy and download everything) and look for adsense or website related guides. That would help you a lot! :)

    Okay, I would advise to get your own hosting, if you want your own domain name without the wordpress.name.org

    Purchase a 2 years hosting cost that is $147, you can re-coup this money back by charging $10 a month for promoting signature links. (Now you have free hosting) Do it again on digital point, warrior forum and other forum sites.

    Okay, then install wordpress, click on the 1 click install script, continue and it`ll download and upload on your hosting.

    1st stage: purchase domain & hosting

    2nd stage: Installing templates or dl free ones, (up to you)

    3rd stage: Setup a logo contest, and pay $25 bucks for the winner and update a better logo once you gain more traffic.

    I think thats about it, outside from learning SEO and building traffic.

    Plenty of great advice here for you to get started. To be successful on-line keep learning and implementing what you learn. Particularly areas you must be an expert in are keyword research, domains/hosting, web design/wordpress and on page and off-page SEO. There is an abundance of info here on the forum so you shouldn't need to go far to find the answers/guides.

    For adsense you should have a site with around 5-6+ pages, preferably 6 months old and that doesn't have questionable content. Head over to adsense and check out the TOS for more info. You should have a website before you apply but you can also use Blogger or Hubpages formats to monetize with adsense.

    Good luck on your IM journey!
