    Hello BHW World Members.

    I've been here for a while and I just started posting but I have questions and I'm willing to pay $25.00 for an hour of questions. I was a systems engineer and I manage the servers in data centers until my team was laid off. On the side I have my own small business fixing servers and laptops in the little free time I have and its feast or famine. Mostly famine now.

    I think having the knowledge of hardware integration might come in handy in here some how.

    1. I'm looking for someone that has been doing this for a few years (someone with a good track record) the do's and serious don't do this ever. Here is where I had some success and this is a total money pit. I'm not looking for the jedi secrets. I'm looking for a roadmap so that I can create my own path.

    2. You must have paypal (as this is the only way I can pay you)

    3. We can either do skype or I can call you or you can call me.

    4. Why do this? I've always paid for consultation about things I don't know about. Sure you can read about this but we are not making a cake here its a lot more complex than that and a lot more steps.

    Thanks, Cel

    I think its against the rules to do a coaching sort of thing here unless a mod approves the coach.

    That being said I would say dive in, read a lot, and search and then ask specific questions when they come up.

    Thanks, I didn't read that in the FAQ's and if it broke this rule I won't do it again. I'll send you a PM if it isn't too much of an issue.

    Good Morning, its 6:30 am

    Yep agree with wowhaxor. It is against rules to offer coaching and because of that it will be hard to find someone.

    Secondly experienced guys would not be willing to exchange an hour for $25. In this hour they could make 10x more then that.

    I have done some consulting in past (not here) and have charged $$$ per hour.

    The guys who would be willing to do it for $25 is because they need that , which means they dont make much, therefore probably not the kind of guys whose expertise you need.

    If it is ok with you, just ask your questions here in a thread and we will do our best to answer you :)

    Yeah coaching is not allowed unless approved, and it is better this way, so when you do buy coaching you know you are going to get the good stuff, Like Enrikole said just ask in here, there are some decent people who will answer them for you.

    Best of Luck

    Your approach is solid.

    At least you didn't start out with the typical noob question, asking to be spoon fed or taken by the hand for free as though you somehow deserve it.

    If you ask a specific question, you will get a ton of answers, just weed out the bad, and most likely you'll get an agreeable corilation of the right answer.

    Shoot away, just don't ask "how do I make $2000 by this weekend", which I'm pretty sure your not.

    I would have paid $50.00 but thank you, in return I'll give back into the community any way I can in the future.

    1. What is the principle behind link cloaking? I've read a lot about it but I'm missing the foundation for this. What I believe it is, listing a link on your page which is not a direct link to either your adsense, landing page or affiliate but then it does route to it. Correct? I'm guessing because because adsense only allows on account per website?

    2. Acquiring proxies and vpn's/vm/vps? being a hardware guy I have lots of experience in vm/vps and building out a large frames to host many vm/vps. The community would be better servered if a group pooled money together and leased one large frame a month standing vms at the end of the month they dissolve and then clone.

    3. And I've asked some of the SEO people here in Phoenix and asked them about purchasing adwords or adsense? Why would one do this? Perhaps this is the top of the total noob question but I'm a technical person and very detailed and miss the big picture from time to time.

    I know I'll make money I just need to understand what I'm looking at and use the best tools and talent for the position I want to be in 8 months from now.

    Thank you, THE BIG FNG GUY!

    Ok I can try an answer this one for you, adsense and adwords is 2 different things if you would say, adsense is something you would use on your site as advertising for google and a way to make a small income with the potential if done right to make more, where adwords is were you are paying for advertising, you pay for everytime someone clicks the adverts, you use then when you have something you want to advertise and/or if you are an affiliate to something and you want to advertise the product to help get the traffic to your site to promote the product you can use this. I think this is right if there is anything missing someone feel free to add.

    Thanks

    I would save adwords for after you have some basics down. Like market research and keyword research. Most people migrate their campaigns to adwords after they have had some success in a market and understand the keywords that trigger sales.

    You don't wanna waste a bunch of money experimenting with adwords, unless you got money to burn. Adwords is used for top placement in searches for certain keywords with no guarantee of sale, while still being charged for click, anywhere from $.01 - $20.00 or more depending on market, and it can quickly add up, especially if your keyword target is still kicking the tires.

    Although some people start out great with adwords, but they most likely understand the market their dealing with and their buyers triggers, have a passion and can relate to the market.

    Adsense is usually a bonus income now a days to your niche main income, unless your doing autoblogs specifically for adsense income, whcih will be a whole different model in itself and still very rewarding, just alot stricter than it used to be.

    Cloaking? There are so many different reasons, and or models for cloaking, why you are considering cloaking will determine what tools or tactics you will use. Are you hiding traffic, affiliate links, landing pages, hiding from google etc., etc.

    Hope that helps some.

    You will find all your answers here at BHW, just do some digging and keep the coffee coming.
