    I have seen this asked a few times but most don't go into any helpful details. I've mostly seen something like its 5% content creation and 95% getting traffic.
    How does this break down?
    How much time do you spend reading/researching
    How much time posting to various sites, to your own
    where do you spend the time, FaceBook, youtube, twitter, digg?

    I realize you probably don't keep track of the time you spend on each thing, so just try to guess and order from most to least

    Also please indicate where your efforts are paying off.

    100% reading NBA statistics...

    But it should be 20% testing new sources of revenue, 30% maintaining what you have, 30% building new things, 20% research

    i think ideally it would be 33% reading bhw, 33% scaling up existing income streams, 33% creating new income streams.

    in reality tho, i'm probably more like 90% bhw, 10% actual work :p

    I'm looking for more details. Please don't turn this in to another thread of listing 3 categories of things you do.

    What do you do with the content you create? Post on your own site, or on some other site?

    What methods of traffic generation do you spend time on?

    Trolling BHW is a bit more specific of an answer like I was looking for

    What kind of testing?

    What do you conciser maintaining.

    Is time spend building new things coding (what are you codeing), or article writing, artwork or what.

    where do you spend your research time? News? Keywords? Niches? Meathods?

    Does this make sense, or do people not pay attention and just want to post something quick?

    To me you're coming off a little rude because you're not getting exactly what you want which seems to be someone elses total method. I could answer all those questions you posted in your last post and how I make money still would not make any sense at all to you.

    Please don't think I'm being rude. I don't take the time to write in threads just to be an asshole, so I'm trying to help. You seem frustrated. These things are going to VARY WILDLY. Pick a method, do it, see for yourself what works for yourself.

    To stay on topic and being totally honest with you, I spend 99% of my time brainstorming and coming up with new ideas. The other 1% is a mixture of the questions you're asking. Once you learn how to come up with your own original never before done spins on things, work gets a lot easier.

    Same here. I'm trying to get into IM these days, so my schedule is awkward at best.

    Me : 90% time on BHW since its about the ONLY place that some "gurus" around here will give you vaguely a general idea about some kind of idea that will actually generate money yeah you better be familiar with a shitload of alot about IM in order to actually understand and IMPLEMENT that vague idea and if you don't twist it you can kiss it goodbye because its probably dead by the time they share it.

    10% trying to implement this information constipation into actual internet estate.

    THIS IS AN ASSUMPTION MADE BY A NOOB! underline noob with zillion lines I really am a noob and haven't made a dime so don't take my word for it in fact sorry for even posting this but someone might even remotely agree...

    1- As a noob (ME) : We all spend about 99% of our time getting information diarrhea or constipation or what have you and 1% acting upon something and actually maintaining it, HA! funny isn't it? and even after acting probably ain't gonna work and you're going to have to find something else yep. right there failure again even after acting up but don't give up someday you'll get there according to successful people around here ( I didn't get there yet but I'm positive I will).

    2- Guru : Probably thinking of the next eBook title or post to keep you away from his money cow. That's right he ain't NEVER gonna share a money cow

    Basic online-offline-market idea:
    the more information you share = YOUR market-share slimmer = LESS MONEY = you haven't made a dime = you're still a noob = NEXT

    NEVERTHELESS you're going to have to go through this process and read their hype so in time you can pickup what's hype and whats 1% truth around those lines with a touch of twist of YOUR OWN and there you got yourself something working.

    This assumption is inspired by this thread that noobs should really get to read its an eye opener for all beginners and some genuine talking by alot of members.

    EDIT: Removed the thread link I don't know how to share a link in my posts lol. just use the Search Tool and type in " Message to all beginners" you should find the thread and its by a member called Mollah.

    My typical day is spent creating content for web 2.0 properties in order to promote my sites about 65% of the time. I probably spend 10% of the time on research for my sites as well.

    I haven't created any new sites in a month or so as once I do build a site I spend a fair amount of time building backlinks via articles in my link push process.

    The other 25% of the time, I spend reading about what others do to make them successful as that is how I became successful to begin with.
