Okay I'll start off by attaching a screenshot for some folks who have trouble in believing other people.
I thought that since I have about a few hours free I would share some of my success here so that someone who still hasn't made a penny online could get (?)inspired.
I have made 36 sales in the May of 2011 and today is the 25th of May.
So I have earned $118.65 so far but when the rest 4 items get delivered it should be at least $140.
Okay I agree guys, $140 is not that much, there's not really much you can do with this small amount of money but the good thing about Amazon is that once it starts on-going, it's just passive income. I just need to scale this and make it $10k instead of $140, lol.
Anyways I'm not going into details on how to create the website etc, but I'm going to tell you that my traffic is from my Google rankings. And guess how I rank my sites? Yup, you guessed it right, the answer is Sick Submitter, lol.
I barely use any of the rss, pinger, articles etc modules. The only module that I use is the profile submitter module, and yes that's 99% of what I use Sick for.
Because profiles are the easiest do-follow backlinks you can create and that's why I like the profile module.
On my sites I promote both the homepage and about 3-4 inner pages.
Each page has it's target keywords.
Believe me or not, if you build backlinks consistently at about 30-40 per day to each page, you will see your sites rankings going up, and I'm talking from experience here.
But really do not take that "consistently" lightly because that is the key. If you stop backlinking you might even see your site dropping off the radar.
Sometimes the Google dance comes but if you are keeping with the "consistently" then you will be seeing your site come back soon enough.
Consistency is far more important than quantity in my experience, so better to go 10 per day rather than 1000 a day than nothing for a month.
Another tip that I want to share with you is that the domain PR has its own weight. What I mean is, you see all these crappy forums you get the profile backlinks from, their main domain is PR 0, these kind of links do much less for your rankings than a profile backlink from a forum that has a pr 5 on the root domain.
So to re-cap in simple words, try to get as many as high PR forums backlinks, and as consistently as possible you can to your site, possibly daily, and you will be making money, may that be that you are doing Amazon sites like me, or may that be you are doing Clickbank product sites etc... The key is to get high rankings on Google to get the traffic, and Sick can help you do that.
Now there are other software out there in the market that do the same thing as Sick, but do you know why recently I started loving Sick even more?
Well usually these days it's hard to find a good PR domain forum that has not got an anti-bot question. People now know that captchas can be broken easily now with services like decaptcher, and that's why the webmasters started to putting anti-bot questions in their registration pages.
And as far as I know, there aren't many softwares out there who can break anti-bot questions, but recently an add-on came out for Sick, which is IdiotQuery by Mission (looks like he's a well known coder here).
And this IQ system basically has tons of tons questions and answers in their database already, and is adding hundreds of new data each day.
So basically with this IdiotQuery system we have access to so many high PR forums that other software owners can't use.
Plus IQ gives you templates that work much better than the standard templates for most of the popular platforms.
So if you are a Sick user then you really really want to have IQ to taste the fullness of Sick Submitter.
You can check more on the IQ system here.
The reason why many newbies fail to even make a penny online is because even when they have the knowledge they don't put it into action.
What other proofs do you need?
Sick works if you keep to it.
Actually everything in life works if you keep your calm and keep doing it.
If you are haven't bought Sick yet but you are planning to make money online, then you should buy it immediately.
Besides, it's only $19.99/month, it's just an hamburger you have to eat less every month to get a chance at making some cash online.
So if you don't own Sick yet, you can buy it here.
Best of luck to your IM journeys.
