I'm quite new to this whole internet marketing thing, or whatever you want to call it. Basically I write articles about an already internet stuffed niche. I only have 20 articles so far and receive around 100 hits from google per day. Though I spend alot of time perfecting these articles, and I feel that getting anywhere near the income I'm after would require a whole lot of time, years maybe. While just writing articles and submiting my main page to directories and whatnot. So basically what I'm looking to learn is what BHW does to make money asap. I already have Adsense and get a few clicks every now and then for these articles on this site I have. But the traffic is just not enough for the time I put into it. In my opinion my hard work isnt paying off enough. I've heard of scrapeboxes, different methods of keyword research, software that might help me finding these "golden niches" but I have no idea how they work, where to get them and if some are worth paying for. To sum it up, im looking to: *Find the best way to pick a profitable niche for a website *Find the best & safest way to SEO it up asap without spending hours upon hours submiting to directories, paid or free. *Find the best ways to SEO optimize on-page *Find the best missing pieces of the puzzle which I feel there are plenty of. Note: When I say "best" I mean the most commonly used, trusted efficient & highest rated "versions" or techniques. I couldnt find a dedicated "newbie" section on this forum and I hope this topic is not misplaced. Perhaps a step by step guide is available somewhere even? Please be gentle, I just want money.
