It's not trying to master ninja techniques to get your page a nice PR. In fact there are a gazillion ways to easily do that. I've spent so many hours researching SEO that I managed to compile a ton of software and sites that can get you a link.
But I realized, that is just half of the task. Fooling around with search engines is the easiest part of IM. It is not the core.
I realized that the core of IM is actually writing good copy. Something that will touch the heart of the reader and will compell them to act. To move!
I've spent so much time with SEO techniques that now that I realized about this fact I feel a bit depressed. I realized that I've been travelling north when I should be going south.
Now I'm here depressed. Wondering if I could still make up the time I've spent. Scared of the repercusion of the choices I've made. You see I'm running on a short thread (financially speaking).
I know it's not warrior like to voice out frustrations, it is better kept unto oneself but then I just want to share this. I've really burned the midnight lamp learning IM, everyday I work more than 18 hours to the point of not sleeping just to learn IM.
Now, I'm on a dead end and a big dog is going to get my a## real soon.
I learned, that I cannot discount, but as I learn I'm realizing that there's still so much more. Now that I know SEO, now that I know HTML, now that I know how to write articles I realize that the road ahead is still quite long. We won't earn just by learning this things. We must become experts in them.
To earn in article marketing we must still learn how to invoke emotional response by using words. Without this we won't be able to sell jack shi#
I've spent a whole month, now with the warrior forum I've spent 3 additional weeks. I can't discount the fact the I learned but man! the prize is too great!
