    Just want to point out something to people who are posting 'how to questions". I see a lot of useless advise given by people who never made any money in Google.

    I made over 7 digits on the web and still making it... I experienced what its like to drive Maseratti, travel the world and live very nice life, all from making money on the web. In 2009 I quit my "cushy" programming job, making $140K a year and never looked back. With about $6,000 budget I made over $4M in sales within first 2 years. If you don't believe me, get to know me... I can't advertise my services here, so I am just going to give you real advise, not some "garbage" you being "fed" by 99.9% of offers.

    money.jpg

    In my opinion, if you are not in top 10 for "money" keywords, you are done.... There is no way you can outgun monopolized top 10 sites for any given "money" keywords in Google. It's no longer a possibility moving forward. With all the Google updates, you stand no chance to compete for "money" keywords with the web sites that are holding their strong positions and do everything they can to "feed" Google with fresh and new content. As you probably know, most of the "buy" traffic in Google organic will never click on page 2, well, only about 1% goes to 2nd page and usually is because their credit card did not go through with someone who showed up higher... Do not waste your money on spam. Google is not created by dummies. They know sites that are selling links and simply ignoring these sites. Do not trust all these fancy DA, PA this and that, you will be cheated out of your money and nothing else. You will not be able to see what exactly gave you ranking as Google never implements changes instantly. To see effect of link from some site, you need to wait 6-8 weeks and even at that time, it is not clear what exactly worked. So there no proven concept on how effective your link building campaigns are.... So stop believing these "cool" sales images and focus on what's more important.

    Here are some pointers:

    LEARN THE GAME... HUSTLE.. IF YOU ARE NOT IN TECHNOLOGY - QUIT NOW

    1. If terminology is not invented by Google - it is not effective. Does term "SEO" ever came up from Google? Do you hear Google talking about "sandbox". Do you hear Google say - "your DA and PA".. I don't think so... The only working concept is complex math invented by Larry Page called Page Rank. Yes, Google removed the API for PR, but concept is still there and always will be.

    2. I find that Youtube videos with CCs create some link backs, some sites share your CCs text. Auto CC by Youtube sucks. Submit your transcript and when you talk about your site in the transcript, include http://www - fully qualified URL. Try to make viral videos. I use screen o matic and crop episodes from car crashes, airplane disasters etc... re position them, make my own background music, put my logo in the bottom and I never experienced copyright issues. These videos give me a lot of exposure and many people share it, many sites post text from CCs, which includes my URLs.... In return I get my links... Natural and good links...

    3. Depending on what you are doing, you must offer wordpress plugins. Most of the sites on the web are wordpress. For example, one of my sites is related to transaction security. I offer a plugin for wordpress, nothing special, just geo location and nice image with the risk score. It takes 1 day to make plugin like that. Boy I got downloads and installs..... About 20K. So part of the plugin is an option, link back to my site. Not only that, my link is requesting from my server, so I can serve as many links as I want.... Now everyone who installs this plugin is giving me links... Nice....

    4. FORUM FORUM FORUM FORUM - some forums take half a page for any given long tail keywords. Long tail keywords are so easy to optimize for. Believe it or not, 50% of long tails are not even targeted by anybody. Some huge percentage of web traffic, over 50% comes from long tails these days. If you have following on your forum, many people post natural and theme related content for you. In result, you are showing up for these long tails... Just go to Google and type for example "black hat forum coupon"... You will see that under main URL, there many other URLs from black hat forum showing up with links to the same site. That's the power of having forum on your site...
    For those who are in this business and want to make real money, install Vbulletin or Xenforo on your sub directory (not sub domain, sub domains are not good) and sign up for one of the "unattended content delivery" services where many professional forum posters generate a lot of content by chatting on your theme related threads in your forum. Only "unattended content delivery" services will be able to help rank your site higher for many long tails and get traffic these days. Without such services, your forum will be "dead"... I prefer Vbulletin 5 Connect and the best hosting provider is URLjet... Tell them to take care of you. They are the experts in installs and maintenance.

    5. Silo... Without a silo you are not making it anywhere... trust me on that.

    6. You need to convert your content site into static HTML and host it through cloud fare or sucuri on S3 file hosting. No server no problems. Speed etc... Fix all W3 errors and make sure you don't have any javascript issues. When you in scuri or cloud fare, remove traffic from anon proxies and contries where you have no meaning to do business. A lot of hacking comes from China and I have no business in China, so I just block the entire country in my firewall. You need to do the same.

    7. Follow Google and forget about lies invented by everybody to cheat you out of money. Recently Google released 100 some pages document about expectations and what to do. This is your "bible"... Here is the link - http://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.google.com/en//insidesearch/howsearchworks/assets/searchqualityevaluatorguidelines.pdf

    8. Matt Cutts wants you to "beg" your competitors for "natural" links - I find it the most ridiculous pointer. Basically Google wants you to get in touch with your competitors, convince them about "perfect" world, where everybody must share the "juice" with one another and say "thanks, now I will rank higher".... Nice one Matt!!!

    9. Your site cannot be a "dead end". You must have "exit" URLs to other sites. Create hrefs with do-follow links to big sites or .gov, .edu domains. Do not link from your home page to nobody other than your inner pages.

    If you don't believe me - listen to someone else, eventually you will give up....

    If you follow my advise and forget about "shortcuts", you will make it... Trust me on that.

    At first I thought this was a cry rant because of the giant font but after reading I have to admit it's actually pretty spot on. Some nice tips specially the plugins and forum ones.

    What would you suggest to create plugins with no coding history? Is it possible?

    Oh boy... I am going through the same struggle. My programming skills are in C# and SQL Server and when it comes to php, I am lost. I normally hire people on Freelancer, mostly from India. It's irritating because they can't read your mind. You will need to draw everything in pictures, how you want to see it. When you hire someone on Freelancer, look only at the companies that are passed technical tests. If they passed plugin development, wordpress and bunch of other tests, these are the ones to discuss further. The rest - garbage, not worth your time. Plugins do not have to be complex. I spend around $400 at most. Another problem is they take their time to develop. So I recommend going over everything before they start work.

    You know there also plugin developers who are selling it as package, tweaking the code here and there. If you find those, you can even get away with like $100....

    Yea I figured thats the only option, you say that google wants you to beg competitiors for links so I assume you say it in a bad way. How else do you build links and stuff? Are you saying to build links with PBN's and web 2.0's and stuff?

    I mean if you read "between the lines", Google wants you to get links from relevant sites. To me, relevant sites are competing sites. These sites are after same category of customers. I don't think anybody in their right state of mind will give you a link where potentially you will be taking their "bread" away....

    To be honest, PBN's and Web 2.0 concept used to work back in the days, until about 2014 or so. Now it's not working. I used to spun content, create links from web 2.0s and PBNs get massive links to these 2nd tier sites with GSA, Xrumer and bunch of other crap. I am talking about 10 servers doing millions of links all at the same time. My freaking captcha guessing bill used to be insane. I've done all that... I don't think its going to help these days.

    You know this Google's "Disavov" tool is not designed to help you in "avoiding" bad links. Crappy links are getting ignored by Google anyway. It is used by Google as "free labor" to identify new sites that are not as bad, kind of "grey". Now they don't have to pay to identify list of URLs to ignore. Web Masters doing the work for Google "identifying" bad sites. In reality it is all done to trick web masters to do the work Google cannot do. Google's position to web masters is ridiculous, I've heard "we don't owe you anything" from Google people thousands of times.... Hell if you don't owe me anything why you want me to "follow" your rules - so Google makes money or something.... What do I get out of it now? Why do I need to do quality work that will never get me anything in return? Google is playing with "fire" and their point of view on web masters. I find it border line insulting and if I will have different platform to optimize for, guess what - screw Google.

    By the way another point - be independent from Google as much as you can. Google is having issues with revenue. PPC money is declining due to social sites taking over. Google lost in many platforms, especially biggest mess was with losing marketplace to Amazon. Whoever was in charge of Google market place was or still is total loser. Having to dominate everything and ended up losing to Amazon.... That's retarded!!!! Google social is garbage as well. Feed Burner - Bye Bye 100 millions they spent on buying it out. Not buying Skype was stupid on Google's part. Now Yahoo is for sale, if Google does not acquire Yahoo... Anyway, to me removing keywords and PR signals is another way to blind web masters and investors... This is whole new topic, another "can of warms"....


    White hat is what I would focus on now. I'd learn "tricks" if I were you and get people to give you links one way or another... Wizi wuzzy crap. Photograph your food and Instagram it. If you travel the world, video every step you make with camera embedded in your hat. I always like to do hidden camera in Amsterdam Red Light district, having fun, drinking beer, different restaurants, getting lost in this old hotel Amrath in Amsterdam I mean it was like catacombs - got lots of views from that... Put up a facebook page... I like thug life videos - whoever it is, making killer traffic just copying videos, editing and putting it up on youtube, sharing on Facebook. I would try to learn from others, what they do and "roll up my sleeves" and do something similar. One of my videos got picked up by every channel in the world, it was on 1st page on Reddit, Yahoo, MSN and I am still getting royalties from renting it out, it's been 3 years... Part of the deal was URL in the video to my site, I got PR5 almost instantly.... I would show this video, but I am afraid of getting banned from this forum....

    Nice point of views but I am asking you this: if you say using web 2.0's is useless right now, how can you rank a corporate website? You need links thats for sure. Using whitehat it's not that easy with this type of website.

    Don't get me wrong, I am 100% with you. This is a legitimate question. What do you suggest?

    I find that corporate websites its easy to get links from, bloggers almost always link to some company or the other. What's tough is building white hat links for niche sites... that's when they know that it's direct competition.

    Thanks for asking.

    I don't do anything out of ordinary lately... Afraid of going under algorithmic penalty. Google is making these stupid updates every day... My goal is to create natural environment for links. On one of my sites that's in unattended content delivery business, I pay people to say things about me everywhere else. Since these people are all writers, they all running some kind of blogs or social accounts. For a few dollars, I am asking them to drop the word about me here and there. As of now I got 200 writers following me. As far as something of automated linking, I don't think that GSA, Xrumer and similar work any more. These programs leave foot prints and I believe Google got smart and going that route can only get you in trouble. PBNs are also dead. Last year I used link emperor for web 2.0s and it worked really well for me, but they charged enormous amount of money for their services. My bill was $900 per month with emperor, but I believe it got me some coin in return. Some people say link emperor is bad and I agree, but I used them for web 2.0 and got some good "juice"... If it works or not, I can't tell. I was paying social signifyer about $500 per month at the same time. Overall, doing both got me where I needed to be with the site and I got $1K in my weight loss sales a day... So whatever I was doing was worth it. Now I am starting this new site with social signifyer. Just dropped few hundreds with them yesterday. Let's see how well they do.

    Another good way of getting yourself some traffic is to generate new terminology. For example, back in 2012, I was among about 3 other competitors selling "phentermine" like supplements. Some people call it knock offs, I don't... Anyway, I generated the term "phentermine alternative" when I was doing it and started building links to my site with anchors like "phentermine alternative", "phentermine substitute" etc... Before I know it, everybody started picking up same terminology as me and Google recognized it as a keyword. I was #1 for these keywords. Now it's a big money keyword and it shows up in Google suggestion box everywhere, PPC and such. So I just generated that term... Anybody can do the same and I think this is the best way to get yourself recognized in Google.


    Also I always recommend everyone to do this. Before you pay someone for links, ask them if they are willing to offer you money back guarantee if your positions for specified keywords do not improve within four weeks. I bet you money that none of these will ever offer money back. They will come up with thousands reasons not to give you your money back in case if you don't see improvement. Why - because they know it that whatever they are offering is basically garbage, waste of money for you. There no real value in these links. Google sees that they are selling these links and their entire chain goes under algorithmic penalty right away.... What they do, they buy cheap and abandoned domains on register compass, slap some content they get from in best case way back machine, worst case auto generated by Kontent machine or similar software and done deal. Now it's time to rip somebody off with fancy web 2.0s words and almost guaranteed traffic increase as early as next day.... I always laugh when I see these things. In reality you are paying some dude in Pakistan or India who is sitting there and praying on idiots from America, UK or whatever.... Once they done with you, they are having a good laugh and talk about how dumb Americans are and how clever they are and how they got another idiot to trust them... Reminding you of that "help me transfer millions from Africa" scam? Same thing. It's just technology is the method of cheating in India and Pakistan. They can feed entire family for a month on $100 budget.... Think about that.... What kind of "services" they can provide you with.... LOL

    Really learning lots with all this information. You came in with perfect timing since I too was going to buy some scam product not knowing any better. Could you recommend the type of site I should be building? like micro niche or authority? Low competition keywords? I've been just looking around this site for about a year now and finally decided to take action. My goal is to create passive supplemental income until I can do this full time (Can't stop paying the bills).Thanks, in advance!

    In any method content is very much important.So,make your content unique and fresh.
    You can use long-tail keywords because many visitors are using that type of keyword to find their solution.
    Concentrate on your article sizes it may contains 1,500 words.
    User experience is must so put some effort on it.
    You can use unique images to attract more visitors to your site.

    What I would do in your case is this. I know a lot of companies making good income from product reviews. Create a domain. For example my latest one was mydomain.reviews (there actually .reviews extensions). Sign up for CJ.com and ask them, what are the new products added within the past 30 days. Try to find new brands that are not been around long and create pages with reviews for these products. Obviously do not pick on broad names like "jeans", but something like "abcxyz jeans" would be ideal, because it is unique brand and newer it is better for you to get higher positions in Google. Set up a home page, better to just do this in HTML and put a forum software on sub directory (vbuletin), get one of the unattended content delivery services and get people to chat about these brands, giving likes, reviews etc... It will be 2 years before you start making real money, but if you constantly grow your site and add new content, you will be making it good money in 2 years.

    Noobs please don't listen to OP, he gives bad advice and talks utter rubbish.
    He is just here to hire people for his form posting jobs or trying to sell his forum posting service.

    His latest advice was that you can't rank a site unless it has a forum. Classic
