    I've been taking SEO/IM a little more seriously over the last few months... Doing it constantly has opened my eyes to a lot of shit so I though rather than spend this even posting abouthttp://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/this-hotel-gave-me-some-crappy-images-for-their-website-what-do-i-do.885701/#post-9371580 or making love to animals like I normally do I'd do something semi constructive...

    How to be less shit at this.

    Why the fuck are we in 2016 and we are still making shit affiliate sites? We live in an age where web development is cheap as fuck, yet all of you mongs are constantly still producing http://bestelectrictoothbrush2016.com/ or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omWX4xUvcsc videos.

    Why is it every time I find an affiliate site I get that fucking annoyed I deliberately do not click your links? When was the last time you saw an affiliate site and thought "fuck thats awesome..."? It does not happen and in my eyes that's just fucking retarded.

    It's time we open our eyes and do less bullshit. The internet is a beautiful invention, so why are we polluting it with crap? That's just not cool man, and you should stop.

    North Face XPS
    Who thought that a web page designed to https://www.thenorthface.com/xps for you would be cool enough to make you say "oh fuck..." like it did to me?

    [​IMG]

    By answering simple questions which are generated on the fly with real answers this app will point out the perfect product from the entire North Face range. I want you to go and play with this app for a few minutes see the power of it, it will blow your mind (and if it doesn't you don't have a clue about anything and you're a hopeless idiot).

    Doesn't it kind of make you want to share the website with others? Don't you feel more connection with something like this than a typical ecommerce store? Aren't you more likely to buy after something like this? I felt all those things after playing with it and again, if you didn't you're hopeless.



    Now this site was built with IBM's Watson, and it's unlikely this would be cheap or easy, but if you can afford an Indian for a few days you can build something similar.

    You are going to need a database on your products, for this example lets look at drones.

    You are now going to need a list of product attributes which can be used to filter down your product list, for drones we could use:
    • radio range
    • will it fly outdoors?
    • FPV camera
    • flying style (racing, photography, general flying...)
    • size
    • pre built or bind and fly
    Next we need a set of questions that get us the answers we need to select a suitable product, for some of these you could serve radio buttons or select boxes, for others you could easily allow text entry like North Face. To create something truly like the North Face experience I would write multiple questions for each attribute and then you can simply feed in random questions designed to extract the same answers, even randomising the order of these should not be an issue in most cases.

    From these questions any decent developer would be able to create an SQL query designed to pick up the products which suit their needs, feed in your amazon/affiliate links and serve your already written product reviews and you're away.

    You could easily get something built that is like this for less than $500. Development is cheap, and when you compare something like North Face XPS against a standard shitty review blog it's easy to see that this is cooler, better and will probably make you more fucking money.

    CamelCamelCamel...
    Wouldn't it be cool if a website existed that told you when products you were interested in were cheap or on sale? wouldn't it be cool if these things emailed you links directly when products hit certain prices or when prices dropped under the average price?

    Well, look at http://camelcamelcamel.com/

    Wouldn't something like this be far more popular with users and real ready waiting buyers than your shit "best anal dildos 2016" blog?

    [​IMG]

    Who doesn't want cheap shit, and who wouldn't want alerts sent to them when shit they can't afford now got cheap? This is that good that I think this should be a feature of amazon, not a fucking affiliate website.

    Building this would not be simple, cheap or easy... but don't you think you will drive far more conversions with this than a crappy table comparing electric shavers?

    And think about it, once you know one product the user wants and once you collect an email or they create an account... why not push more shit to them. They want an iphone 7? next year send them alerts for iphone 8... They want outdoor jackets, they probably are the type of person who buy outdoor trousers or walking boots... Sort your life out, are you able to do this with blogs/tables/review sites. No.

    If you were a real company would you go and build internet properties like this, or spam filled blogs with content written by non-engish speaking mongs?

    Isn't it insane that people are building genuinely helpful/cool websites like this and you and your mates and working out ways on how to spam YouTube with crap reviews you ripped off another channel or building shite blogs about things you don't give a fuck about?

    You are all doing it wrong, and that makes you retarded.

    That would need to involve brain for an idea that most people simply lack. Most self proclaimed IM's are just ripping off someone elses method/idea to make a few bucks and go crazy when it's more than $10 in a month - what do you expect from them?

    I have polluted the internet with about 5 shitty websites that brings in $$$$ per month and that helps me to live the life I always wanted to live. It is good to think outside the box... But cursing all through the post? Well, some are privilege to curse all BHW members, and others, if you try it, or joke with it. You get infraction or even a banned!

    Do you not think that sites like these probably do at least 1 digit better than $$$$ a month?........

    Haha, I love the concept of SEO and building interesting and unique websites.. It could land you millions of dollars with the right idea. I think the reason a lot of people (including me) jump into CPA and that crap is because it's somewhat easy and requires almost no knowledge.

    Anyways, thank you for the motivation, I have an Amazon website (not as shit as the toothbrush one.. How the hell did you find it? :D ) and haven't worked on it for a while, but I'll start with it again within 10 minutes :)

    Hahaha...I mean, after you get past the comedian abuse delivery, he has a good point. Though telling the BHW boards that they should produce database query interfaces similar to an IBM Watson/NorthFace collaboration, is a little out there in expectations. You have a good point, the internet user now adays has learned enough from being sent into the depths on the internet, that a well designed website with a unique user experience is a significantly more trust worth site. So putting time and effort into a site in worth the effort. NOW, if you take the expectations of building something of similar quality to IBM Watson and focus on your comment about building a database with similar filter style input area with validation you have a personalized or guided website user interface. I appreciate the post, and the outlook on where the IM world is going, even though I feel like I got verbally beat haha... .

    I believe they do better. But it is going to take a lot of 'thinking outside the normal box' to build something like that, or something much better.

    Well ofc it's gonna be cheap and spammy looking sites when it's cheaper to build them in ten minutes rather then paying a indian for a couple days work or spend a couple a days working on it.

    But I loved the idea of that page, might make something similar.

    Btw I love the new profile pic you have ste, but couldn't you crop out the fat bastard in it?

    Ste, raises a good point, this is not 2012 any more. Things are significantly harder and if you really want to kill it in IM and SEO then you have to think differently.
    If you are still churning out the same sites that were making money years ago but aren't reaching the same income levels then that is a good sign to reassess your plans/business.

    What kind of post is this? You compare a wordpress based affiliate site, that only costs domainreg+hosting vs a AI, bought! by a multi-million dollar company. You're polluting the forum, that's it.
