Hello BlackHat World... I have a few questions and looking for a place to start. There is SO much information on this site it is almost overwhelming. Ok i lied it is overwhelming. I have a strong working knowledge of computers / HTML / and the basics of SEO. I have bin trying to start making some money off these sites for over a year or two. I used eBay partner network on all my sites and I make a solid $100.00 a month off of it. I don't know how to get more money; I must be doing something wrong. Here is a quick overview of steps i take when creating a new WP (eBay partner network) site (after i research my key word). buy domain load wordpress + SEO tools create 5 to 20 1000 word posts all original content and with tags let site sit for 1 month (was told if you load ads to quickly google will not index your site) load ads based on key words run bookmarking demon i have bot accounts hit all the social media sites but i don't think this is doing anything. i have to be doing something wrong or is it just rare to make $500 a month or more? So what steps am i missing? I am not looking for a quick fix here I am more than willing to put the time /work into my sites but it seems there has to be an easier way. Any links to some good read would be more than helpful. Tools I should be using also would be great. I am not looking to spend any money just yet seeing that I am really not making anything to invest back in. thank you all for your help. I know what i will be doing over the next few weeks at work... crawling this site!
