    Thanks to blackhat world I made my first money ever online. For those of you out there that havn't made sh*t, there is hope guys. Just keep trying and eventually it will happen. I started off a few months ago knowing absolutely nothing. After reading everything I could here on the forums. I made about 3 grand over a period of a few weeks off of a movie site. I still consider myself a noob and have a lot to learn but this is a good first step. My secret? Nothing elegant. Bought a domain with my keywords and set up a quick site. Waited exactly 4 months then spammed the hell out of it with scrapebox and article marketing robot and some senuke blasts. Mostly scrapebox though. After a while i was ranked number 1 for several of my longtails i was targeting. The movie came out (harry potter and the deathly hallows if you must know) and the traffic starting pouring in. I monenized it with Leadbolt.com and affiliatebuzz.com. I still make 20-30 off of it a day, weeks after the movie is out. Now I intend to scale up and to try some new methods other then movie sites. Just a little encouragement to those of you not making anything yet. One of these days you will find something that works, just keep reading and trying new things. Peace.

    Always great to see people succeeding and to read their post about it. Best yet, it sounds like you know where to go next.

    That's always something to keep in mind - make a goal, and once you hit that goal, start looking towards your next one.

    Anyway, good work man!

    Great work man, congrats! Question - do you really have to wait for 4 months before spamming with backlinks? You did it to avoid sandbox?

    thx
