    LOL Well I really am frustrated but not quite as bad as the heading may seem. I have been working my butt off Pimp Slapping the internet with Baby Powder just trying to make a buck, WOW. I mean don't get me wrong I have made some money and decent money at that. It is just the highs and lows between the money that is killing me. And even at that I mean if I were to say making $200.00 a hit every so often SOMEONE here is going to laugh and say that isnt money. Well however true that may be for you, I was excited because it as if money came out of thin air. BUT the question remains, how do I make this a steady thing? I mean I belong to a bunch of reputable affiliate programs, I am promoting the best I can, I manage a PTC site, and a Relationship Blog. I am far from the star student here but I mean I am trying and I am NOT GIVING UP. I am just kinda confused as to what I am doing wrong?

    Main thing I guess I would need to ask is how do I generate REAL TRAFFIC? Not the garbage PTC traffic where one out of 1000 or even 10000 people are really interested in what you have to say? And a 1000 may be a bit optimistic at that. As far as I can see the real money lies in the Traffic Theory...The more people you throw you Items in front of the more likely you are to get a sale. Right? I also know that it has to be the right crowd but targeting a crowd seems like a needle in a haystack on the web man. I have gone all through the internet and this GREAT FORUM of resources and read about backlinking and what not but then I come across articles that says backlinking is DEAD because of newer protocol By the BIG Giggle and the fact that they are preventing it from happening in the traditional meta tag sense.

    All in all the real thing here is, I am NEW, I can read and I do own a mouse that functions quite well btw especially on the BIG G search, I have TESTED it believe me. But what is it that I am doing wrong? Is the spiratic money jumps just a means to an end Showing a flicker of hope that if I hang on the bite is there? Or are these just trickles of a chance that come my way? Any helpful advice outside of being cussed out and told to search the internet more would be great LOL I mean my eyes are about to bleed from two months of 28 hour days behind a computer(yes I can do math and am aware that doesnt add up) BUT still I have been working like mad and getting glimmers of hope so I WILL NOT QUIT, just kinda would help if I had a real pro or two, to not really give up the major secrets BUT perhaps point a legitimate HARD WORKING 'tryer" in the right direction. Im not asking for the gold here just a little guidance. I understand we all need to put in our time to make it here. Otherwise everyone would be doing it and making it. SO I will leave it at that...THANK YOU BlackHat Brothers and Sisters I love this place.

    The best way to make it steady is to affiliate for anything which is rev share, and not just pay per sale.

    Wrong! You can show a product to 100.000 people without making a single sale if you are targeting a generic keyword, while you could make 5 sales out of 150 visits if you ranks the right keywords. What are you promoting ?

    Hell I am promoting anything I can get my hands on right now. And yes I see what you are saying about the traffic thing I just used low numbers because that is what I picked. BUT I agree with you.... Now how the heck do I get around it. I am far from a Html/php junkie and have been trying to learn it for a bit now but I HATE these automated wordpress things and then jumping back to my straight script. It screws with my head.

    Main stuff I am pushing is Relationship and self help stuff because the market is killer.

    Often you just need some patience... building up an audience takes quite some time.

    Hey TheHound, I don't really have advice because I don't know the details of your projects. But I just wanted to tell you to not give up! You can do this, just keep going my friend. Threads like this are a good start, maybe somebody can give you solid advice. Good luck.

    If one technique isn't working for you, try another one.

    The best steady method that I read of on this great forum, was the ORM Method posted by one of the mods, but can't remember the name..

    Noone's gonna tell you how to do it specifically, because every case is different. What works for you may not work for my product. A LOT of A/B testing goes into making $$$ online, changing things until they work. Keep trying and eventually you will hit the right spot.

    "Anything you can get your hands right now" is not a great approach... You should focus on one thing, optimize it, monetize it, set up a maintenance plan and move to the next subject. Add me to skype (click on the link under my name) so you can show me what you have done and I'll help you...

    My advise would be creating your own product. Say if you where to create your own wp plugin that solves a problem in that website development/marketing niche. You'd make steady income from that product for years.

    Being an affiliate should only be a means for start-up capital. Just set your goals a little higher..

I will go through and do your skype info and everything else I read here in a bit. I am working on the computers at the moment. Again I am THankful I found this place and wish I hadnt lost my other account info otherwise I may not look so new LOL. THANKS GUYS!!!!
