    I live in the netherlands, and I want to make money online but I'm a complete noob in ICT. I looked at some companies selling these courses, but they only teach a specifit area, and not as a whole and their program lasts for months, even years. Where should I look for someone who can teach me website creation, seo, etc in a short period of time?

    What have you been doing since December 2009? I think that 90% of the people on this forum learned the hard way, by just reading, reading, and reading some more, look on google, research it, read all the big SEO blogs out there.

    As for website creation, start with learning the title, h1, and other formatting tags, you can practice in notepad. Then move onto CSS or try messing around with a free wordpress blog.

    I would second that. Linger and lurk on Black Hat. Accept the generous freebies when you see them. Read everything. Ask people questions. Participate. Experiment. Take a few risks. Fail. Get back on the horse. Cry. Smile. Make your first dollar. Raise your goals. Learn the hard way. Don't expect short cuts. Give thanks where it's deserved. Try some JV's. Check out other web forums. Refine your skills. Find a niche that fits you. Realise SEO is for the long haul.

    buying into the wrong service can lead to wasted time and effort especially with any product that has the words "make money online" involved . If your hurting that bad i'll share my knowledge... for a price ;-)

    Read Read Read Read.......... and dont believe everything you read! You will soon start to find common ground between articles and understand how it all works.

    Ask Questions - There is only 1 Stupid Question and that is the Question you dont ask!! As you would be stupid for not asking it!

    Find Free hosting and Web 2.0 properties and Experiment! Play about with different things and see what happens. Goto the downloads section and Read somemore ebooks, then ask someone questions!

    You dont need someone to teach you, if you are interested and committed you will learn alot more at your own pace.

    I am 100% self taught through my own interest and drive. and today I sit here making more than Mr 9to5 only actually working a couple of hours aday... some times dont bother working at all.

    Good luck with your online adventures

    you wont find anyone, why coz no one other than google himself knows the real seo.
    But yes trail and error is your master here, the best way to learn.

    I do seo for my clients: but i still yet to find out what is seo :)

    You have two options:
    1.) Pay someone to teach you
    2.) Read

    If you choose (2) go to my blog thenewdegree and start reading from the first post. Do not read any random post, start from the first one. [By first I mean the oldest post, its titled "15 Day Seo Course"]

    SEO is just simple but you need to patient, need more effort and time. Start on basic things, you must have knowledge first on ******** and PR rankings. There are lot of process you can do on SEO.

    As MKelly noted, I've been browsing BHW without actually doing anything. For a while, I'd lost interest in this whole internet thing, but I recently watched "The Social network" and it really motivated me and made me see that the future is online. And my school requires us to do 100 hours of some extracurricular activity (paid), so I thought I might as well learn a few things about this. I think I'll just start on my own then.
