    Would this work? I don't know much about SEO, haven't really earned anything other than flipping a site, so I was just wondering... If I were to pick an affiliate product/cpa product, get some keyword research done, go over to the buy/sell services section, get a landing page done, and finally order an SEO package from one of the crazy awesome SEO masters who can do it all, will I see the cash? It probably sounds stupid but worth asking anyway.

    It's not stupid at all... I outsource 90% of the things I need done for my sites now.

    I can get a lot more done and there are a lot of people out there with skill sets that I can only dream about.

    Surely it's not as simple as what I wrote right? What did I miss out?

    Pretty darn close... you have to manage your outsource people and it will take you some time to find the ones that are a good fit for you but yes, that's pretty much the program.

    SEO has a big rule in Internet marketing they help internet marketers in many ways like building link (inbound or outbound links), do stuff that IM doesn't know you or you can just give a tutorial to them an they will just do the rest. They help you in promoting your website. That's what I do as an SEO.

    I outsource most of my needs now. When I have the time or if I want to make sure I keep my skills (definitely my nunchuk skills) current, I load up the software.

    Good luck.

    You can order a $10,000 "SEO Package" but it doesn't mean jack if you don't get the proper rankings for a keyword that actually gets real visitors who are looking to spend money. Mostly, 1 order from an seo or backlinks service will not put you where you want to be. It will help, but you need to spend money to make money if you dont have the knowledge to do it yourself.

    Know what you are actually buying. Ask the seller to guarantee their work. Make them promise you results for a minimum ranking on your keyword. If they can't deliver that ranking, then they have to refund you. If they are unwilling to tell you EXACTLY what you can probably expect, they don't know what they are doing.

    Many people will advertise "Rank 1st page of Google now!" and when you approach them with a keyword like "Make Money" they say "No Problem" and take your money happily. Then when you dont see any increased rankings or traffic, they tell you to order the "premium package" for better results. Ask the service provider what, if anything, you can expect to achieve from your order. The answer should be either "I guarantee you first page or your money back" or "I don't know, every keyword is different with google."

    Would only a landing page be good enough to match the SEO? Wasn't there something about google hating 1-page sites?

    Maybe not hating, but they definitely don't love it. Google understands that a 1 page website can't provide a LOT of quality content to a user. They know that a 1 page website may be good for a very obscure niche with very little competition, but if there is any decent competition, they would rather send a user to a site with many pages full of content so that the user can have all their questions and searches answered by that 1 website.

    What about competitive niches but keywords with little competition? So, if it's difficult to get a 1 landing page site to the front page of google, that "plan" of mine wouldn't work as well as I thought.
