I found an old article from techcrunch where the founder of thewirecutter said and I quote "We didn?t make money for 18 months because it?s a huge moat in terms of Google. They hate lots of black hat affiliate sites that are scum". Even the worst IM'er can make some money in 2-3 months but not wirecutter. This makes me sick, literally. I'm amazed how these big players are doing everything they can to stop you. If a rookie will read this article will say "wtf if they made money after 18 months what about me?". The point of this thread is to be aware that things are not what they seems - I remember a thread about a chick on instagram who make 600k/m - seriously? Yes you can succeed, yes you can live your dream life but don't believe everything you read.
