    So the last couple weeks I've been thinking about how I haven't been split-testing any different ads, methods, or sources for any of my projects. I've also been thinking about how I suck at problem solving. And when the smallest thing in my method changes, I just decide to quit IM entirely instead of adapting to the change. If something has changed, then there's just no way to ever do that method with any success whatsoever after that, right?

    I've been thinking about my lack of understanding and research into my method and exactly how it works. I mean, there's no reason to understand EVERYTHING about the method, just the little stuff like what niche to pick and what services to use.

    You see, rather than understanding it for myself I'd really rather just follow the guide. I mean, the people who wrote the guide put in all the hard work, so now all I have to do to start my IM career is follow their 5 step process.

    They really are nice people. As long as I use the exact services they use in the exact way that they use them with no creativity, then I'm set! Most of the time when I try those methods it doesn't work though, and instead of figuring out why it doesn't work and gaining experience in a particular field of IM, I'd rather just reinvest my time into a completely different area that I'm going to have to re-learn. Why? Because this method is the real deal this time. I want fast, easy money without effort, and obviously that other method didn't work because it didn't give fast, easy money.

    But I mean, everything is just so saturated these days anyway. People USED to make good money in IM, but the glory days are gone and it's just not viable anymore. Even though billions of people use Google and social media every day, a true internet marketer stays away from those because other people are profiting from them, so they're very very saturated in every single aspect. Because other people are doing the same thing I'm doing, doesn't this mean I've lost 100% of my ability to profit?

    With "Big G" deindexing my money site because it found my poorly-configured, low quality PBN that I either bought from a half-baked service or created without a responsible understanding of fingerprinting, I just can't see how people could ever do REAL black hat SEO in today's day. Because I don't understand it, I'd rather just call other people liars, honestly. The idea that somebody else can know something that I don't is below me, because I've learned from the best IM guru's ever.

    Google has tightened everything up so much that black hat SEO is just dead. I mean, you can't beat an algorithm right? I even used GSA to give my money site 68k backlinks from obscure, Chinese TLD's but there's still no results. That may have been a thing in Mission Impossible, but not in real life.

    And CPA? Social media? Don't even get me started on those. Did you know that YouTube automatically blocks copyrighted videos that are uploaded without proper modifications? There's just no way around that. And when I try to boost my videos by giving them a disproportionate amount of likes per view, they just get removed. So there's really no good way to gain any traffic whatsoever on YouTube.

    And Facebook will OUTRIGHT ban you if you post the exact same link in 400 groups. I mean, how is that fair? I thought there were legitimate websites that go from 0 shares to 400 shares in one day. And the fact that Facebook doesn't let me use TextPlus to verify my accounts just stops me in my tracks. How am I supposed to verify my accounts now that this method that is free, easy, and found in a highly viewed guide doesn't work anymore?

    And Instagram is even worse. When I use Instagram, I try to follow 2-3k people per day, but I keep getting temp-banned. I figured it must be my proxies, so I bought proxies from another supplier that resells the same exact proxies in the same exact subnets, and they also didn't work. And what is this business with banning my domain when I only use it for 1 account? Just because my ".xyz" site was registered three days ago, has never been shared on social media before, has no OG tags, and only consists of links to CPA offers doesn't mean it has an astronomically high probability of being spammy, right?

    Also, I can't understand why my Twitter is getting ghosted and insta-banned when I purchase 1 year old accounts from sellers that have no positive reputation, log in on a corporate IP address halfway across the country from the original login location with no session cookies, phone verify it with a Chinese number, and repost pictures that I scraped off Google Images. It just doesn't make sense. It's done, IM is over.

    See guys, the point is that Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have just become too smart. There's no tricking or exploiting these robots programmed by fallible human minds with limited computational power. The "good old days" of making money on the internet are gone forever.

    Instead of hanging around a bunch of people that don't know how to adapt, I'm going to go get a REAL job where I can patronizingly talk down to people in real life because it's more satisfying.

    don't get down on yourself man or have the negative outlook that it's not possible to make money in this industry.....lots of people are doing it with great success. Just realize that a lot of the things we were doing that were working 5 years ago are no longer relevant. Adapt/change/rank/bank/sip fruity drinks on the beach in tropical paradise. Plenty of money to be made in internet marketing, PLENTY!!!!

    Google's algorithms are only going to be as complicated as what it takes to catch the majority of the spammers doing BH SEO. You can't just get a ton of links at once or even with a fast drip feed anymore. You need to do a slower but progressing in speed drip feed.

    What type of sites would your links appear on naturally if it were to naturally appear?
    What are the connections between various sites that you posted backlinks to? Would a single backlink on 1 site naturally appear on the next site you posted or one that you posted on before.

    Im detecting hints of sarcasm but also there is alot of truth to your post. Websites will always be cracking down. Heck I remember the good old facebook app + CPAlead days where people made tons of money but eventually facebook banned the method. However, people have continued to monetize facebook since then, just coming up with innovative methods.

    I will say this, starting out in 2016 it might be harder than it was if you got in this game early. That is true for any business. That doesn't mean you cant make money. It might take more whitehat long term methods, but the people who have clever ideas (not me at the moment) can still figure out ways around websites security features.

    My goals are focused around not abusing these sources, and trying to use them for more legit methods. I will say that yes spamming instagram, facebook and youtube is not so easy as we might all hope it is, but that doesnt mean it cant work.

    I'm disappointed @BassTrackerBoats , as sharp as you are I didn't think in a million years that the sarcasm would slip by you. :)

    Thank god, lol.

    Omfg, people actually believed that you were serious... Look at those suddenly mass likes....

    Edit: to be honest is kinda hard to distinguish sarcasm from real, unless you have some likes...

    Double edit: Yeah, I've just re-read your post with different eyes, and honestly I couldn't detect your sarcasm this time...

    It is not that hard actlually..He gave too much hints imo..read these lines...

    there's no reason to understand EVERYTHING about the method, just the little stuff like what niche to pick and what services to use.

    that they use them with no creativity, then I'm set!

    low quality PBN that I either bought from a half-baked service or created without a responsible understanding of fingerprinting

    I even used GSA to give my money site 68k backlinks from obscure, Chinese TLD's but there's still no results.

    without proper modifications? There's just no way around that.

    if you post the exact same link in 400 groups. I mean, how is that fair?

    I try to follow 2-3k people per day, but I keep getting temp-banned.
