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.
