    Before anyone gets riled up, first consider me a investor/computer scientists visiting old friends (whom I never go to know).

    Ok, so. The unofficial online marketing make money fast is just a big pyramid scheme. It's a scam, a fraud a terrible trick. Why? Well who buys the products you advertise? What's most successful? Generally it's either software and ebooks designed to tell people how to make money online or it's getting websites views and advertising.
    So what is the role of a noob? To buy and learn and buy and buy and buy. Just keep spending money, and "learning" into you find what works and there you go! Cash! 90% of the time these people are just gonna' spend a bunch of money and quit. 10% of the time they're gonna rise through the bottom of the pyramid and start scheming the poor guys googling "make money online".

    Now, I'm not here to just make some rant. I'm here to challenge you. And it's simple. Post the links of your most successful website or products and most successful keywords that goes with them. I know some of you will get paranoid and be like "But you're just trying to get me to tell you my SECRETS!" Trust me, everyone has the same secrets. The reason for this is I'm going to Google your keywords and tell you your website isn't showing up, or if it is. In fact I predict the only ones that WILL show up are the ones advertising how to make money online. Ultimately leading people to forums like this one.

    Of course, other types of proof and challenges are welcome. Prove me wrong! I doubt you will!

    Honestly, I would be SHOCKED if 20% of the members here make a majority of their IM money on items/services directly related to making money on the internet. I know that some do - our BST section has several that provide services - but my opinion is that the vast majority do not - simply because to try and make money in anything that has to do with making money online is HIGHLY competitive and certainly not where I would like to compete for people's eyes nor dollars. I play in much less competitive pools. Of course, I'm not making that much money overall yet either... but expect to be doing progressively better with that.

    I don't know what to think of a post like this. Either laugh or feel sorry for the OP. For whatever reason you have decided that most on this forum make money by writing ebooks and owning make money online websites. That's a bit lame.

    It is you who wants to make money online quickly. Not us. Some of us use what we learn here to run real businesses. But hold on here's my domain name........

    PS. The people here are NOT idiots so noone is going to post their most successful sites along with their keywords. To even ask that shows that you know viritually nothing about BHW or smart IM in general. Noone with more than 2 brain cells is going to list any site that is making decent money here. It just invites people to cut into their market by duplication.

    It's not paranoya, it's common IM sense.

    On a certain level you have a point....warrior forums and the endless WSO's to show you how to make $6000 in 48 hours are part of a pyramid scam..But this is BHW we are bit more savvy around here.

    Whats wrong with selling IM stuff? Im making $50k to $70k per month. Some of the reasons for that is that I was able to read good books, courses on how to make money.

    Alright...since everyone's locked in on the e-book on how to make money thing please note that's NOT the only thing I mentioned go back through and read every word of the post. It's incredibly short I don't know how anyone would've missed so much. And then try and provide proof that it ISN'T and pyramid scheme in your own way or mine. I don't care which.
    I INVITE you to pick it a part and get technical.

    I'm with this guy, I don't think I have seen any one on the site (Been here for a few months) who has got a site that sells a 'how to get rich book' the most profitable people on this forum that I have seen has started up 'info' sites, sites that have information/reviews and there site has ads, they start them of with nothing build them up, rank them then repeat the same thing over until they flip the sites or sit with the income stream. Knowledge is all free here, I have spent like 30 quid in my sites all together and I'm hoping to rank them to the top of the google by not spending much, not even 500$

    How's this for lip service - Neg Rep

    If you wonder why, it's because I can't stand disrespect to BHW members - especially by some punk child that's been a member here for all of 10 minutes and thinks he's got it all figured out.

    Rather than continue in your 'pyramid scheme' crap, I would suggest one of two things:

    1) Read the many threads on how to make money, figure out ways to twist them and profit over time
    or
    2) GTFO

    Just my opinion of course.
