Almost a year ago I joined BHW not knowing what it even meant. I was directed here by a friend who told me he found some knowledge here. I didn't post much because I was barely understanding the stuff being posted here. I made this forum my Home Page and basically absorbed all of the information I could find. This forum has literally changed my life. I was a kid who was always into hustling things in high school, but BHW allowed for me to see that money is waiting on the internet, and it's legal. I am a university student who had a line of credit, and had depression because life was hard. Thanks to Google External Keyword tool, SEO Spyglass and SEO, I was able to find a niche that had thousands of monthly searches and started building my site on WordPress. WordPress can be a pain in the ass sometimes. I had it installed with Fantastico De Luxe and it would give me nasty errors. I reinstalled it and it seems to work fine now when I install plugins. Remember to have them in .zip and to delete unnecessary folders. Just make sure there is only one folder with the plugin name with the contents inside, and have that zipped. Themes are still giving me trouble so I upload them on my host's File Manager in .zip format and extract them there. Remember to delete the .zip after in order to not use too much disk space. DO NOT MAKE YOUR SITE SOUND LIKE A SALES PAGE. IF YOU ARE "REVIEWING" A PRODUCT, MAKE IT SOUNDS REAL, AND CREATE A STORY TO GO ALONG WITH IT. THAT HELPS THE READER KNOW THAT IT IS AN AVERAGE JOE LIKE HIM WRITING IT. Absolutely necessary plugins in my arsenal: 1. All in One SEO Pack - Pro Version virus total: 2. Google XML Sitemaps 3. SEO Friendly Images 4. SEO Booster Pro (You may have to tweak it to calm down a bit) 5. MaxBlogPress ***** Affiliate (Hides my affiliate links) 6. Theme Authenticity Checker (Notifies me if there's hidden code in my themes) 7. WP Widget Cache 8. Simple Press (It's a forum for WordPress. Only install if you have a large community on your website) As for SEO. I didn't bother with useless blasts. Don't waste your money on that. You should invest in High PR backlinks and High Authority pages. Those PR0 pages are just a waste of time and focus. Manual submissions have allowed for my backlinks to stick, and my forum posts are legit, while my signature's picture contains my link. Automating can make your life easier, but for me the costs outweigh the positives. I cannot afford to pay so much money for initial costs and monthly charges for products like Senuke X and XRumer even though they are fantastic. With Google's new update, manual submissions and quality services on BHW have allowed me to do just fine without spending a lot of money. ScrapeBox is awesome because it's only $57 and can do a lot. Here is a website with fresh proxies every day: Pay attention to your competition. I have found some quality backlinks through SEO Spyglass just by copying my competitor's. Always try to stay a step ahead. That Facebook account has go to go. Temporarily disable it if you want to keep it. So many people are close to success, but stop because they feel that the effort isn't worth it. Believe me, don't waste time on doubting yourself when everyone can make it happened. I think smoking marijuana helps too It calms me down and gives me a better outlook and allows me to come up with more untapped markets. Don't do drugs It's all about positive energy and the laws of attraction. The world doesn't care if you're upset or that you're lazy. Make the most out of your life and earn money that can help you. An extra tip for university/college students to make money: Sell your essays on AcaDemon. It doesn't hurt to make a bit of cash that way. That's how I started.
