You've opened this post in the hope of discovering "The Secret Sauce" that everyone is looking for. That one magic bullet that'll overnight make you shed loads of money and riches beyond your wildest imaginings. Well I believe you've come to the right place only the problem is the "Secret Sauce" is coded and it's buried in sometimes obscure posts all over this site. How do I know? Because I've found a couple of gems that have really helped me out and they have improved my bottom line. What are they? I'm sorry I'm not going to tell you Am I mean holding on to the information for myself (and others who are already using the techniques) maybe. For example by reading this BB I've found a method of getting my tier 2 / 3 backlinks indexed almost immediately and I've built a bot in Excel (strange choice but I know VB and it works) to automate the process. The snag is if I reveal the method here 10,000+ people will jump all over it and spam it to death. Before long the method won't work as well as it did before and eventually won't work at all. So why am I telling you this? Simple the real "Secret Sauces" (although they aren't really secret if you look hard enough) are buried right under your noses right here. People have left clues a map if you will on how to find them but you have to look really hard to find them and THINK about the technique these smart people have used. Not what they're actually doing but the technique they're using. Can the same technique be used elsewhere with a few modifications? What is the thinking behind the technique? In some ways it's quite smart because the lazy and want to get rich quick people want it spoon fed and the new people don't see it until they get more experience. Once they have the experience they probably have the sense to use the techniques wisely and for the long term. As I've posted before I think new people to IM should focus on the basics first anyway. The basics of SEO and getting traffic isn't rocket science all it takes is a little research, experience and damn hard work. Then after a firm foundation is built and a little money is coming in they can look at fine tuning the system they already have by adding "Secret Sauces". A sauce is put on something to enhance its flavour to make it better most people don't just eat it on it's own and IM is no different. Is it possible to make loads of money without a firm foundation. Yes it is the snag is once the golden goose stops laying it's eggs if you don't have a replicatable system you'll never repeat your success. Bottom line: When reading this BB read between the lines and look for the clues / techniques you could use. Test them (another thread) and bend them to help you make more money. Don't expect someone to just hand you the Secret LOOK for them. PS Someone will no doubt comment that this isn't BH well I think it is. For "Secret Sauce" think BH techniques as has been pointed out before BH isn't doing things that are illegal but thinking outside the box and using loopholes in the system to help you earn more money.
