Newbie wants to know something

by 7 comments
Hey guys, I am a newbie here.

I have been reading some great information here at warriorforum and thought maybe I should approach a little close to actual working of it.

For fore-mentioned reason, as to start I’d like to ask some questions in regards to earning money with niche site or SEM marketing in general.

To start off, I’ll need to study generally, I always do keyword based studies. Means if I want to learn about bears, I put bears in the search field. But it’s always hard to know what keywords I have to put and start studying. Therefore, I would really love if you could possibly help me with these keywords for studying. Such as “Adwords, Adchoice, Adsense, Cpanel and etc”


I know many people earn money by uploading Adsense on their niche sites. I thought that building sites always cost you money no matter how simple the site is, then why not just do the same stuff on free blog sites? I know niche sites but I really do not understand the fundamental concept of why not blogs but sites?

These two are all the questions I have.

I am very hardworking guy I always have faith in what I do and always do till the end.

    Already off to a bad start dude. If that is your way of thinking then I see a "I got screwed by squiddo or some free blog" thread in your future

    You can't control what you do not own, so don't get mad if these free blogs take your sites and earnings offline without notice, just because you want to save a few bucks

    If you are aiming for the Adsense road, you should take a few things into consideration.

    Would you like to build a big authority site, or would you rather aim for small niche sites?

    Many would say hey! I build a few hundred sites and cash in - yeah, perhaps and for how long. It is getting harder to rank these days, and Google are not very keen on sites build only for Adsense.

    You can try to do some research for author rank. Google is very interested in sites that create value to the users - in other words. You have to build authority.

    And with 100 sites in different niches, it might be a tough nut to crack! :-)

    Building an authority takes time, and same goes for SEO if you are in a competitive niche, but if you are able to establish yourself as an expert for sure you can make a revenue.

    Both examples require work, and is not done "over night" - decent work takes time.

    If you are able to start it as a hobby and use like 10 hours a week for a week for 6-12 months, and you create unique content and do some back linking, yes you would make money. However, if it is enough to make you, a full time income is hard to say.

    Video ranking on YouTube is a bit easier, and can be a profitable way if you master it. Good luck ahead :-)

    I agree with this, theres really no reason not to just buy a domain off namecheap or some other site for like 10 bucks a year and some cheap hosting then just use wordpress... wouldn't want to waste all your time on a free blog just to see it get deleted,

    Good luck with whatever you choose though

    I agree. Hosting, domain name and wordpress is the best foundation for this one!

    I used Midphase when I started out as they threw in a free 1st domain name so it was nice and cheap to get going!

    Go with a hosted WordPress site. Search for "Website Hosting" on your favorite search engine and choose one of the top Hosting Providers. They all have easy WordPress installation scripts and videos on how to install.

    Good Luck!

    Raxux -

    The fundamental question is one of TRAFFIC. You can't do anything on the internet without some kind of traffic.

    Free sites vs. your own blog: DO NOT setup shop solely on a free site like squidoo or wordpress. Do as the folks above suggest and buy your own real estate ( domain and hosting ) then put your content there.

    BUT use the free sites, youtube, squidoo, wordpress etc. to FEED your site. If one of them gets shutdown or drop in rankings etc. then you are still getting traffic from other areas. You can use paid advertising to send traffic to your own site as well.

    On your own site, it's not a bad idea to put up a lead capture form and get those visitors to on to your list to repeatedly communicate with them. Provide good solid content of course.

    The fundamentals are the fundamentals. Own your own stuff, provide good content, get traffic, market to your traffic, rinse-repeat.

    There are no shortcuts to a good solid internet business.

    Good Luck!

    this question has been answered, and I agree that the main reason is all your hard work and earnings can go down the tubes in the blink of an eye, third party's controlling your destiny is always a no no ... take control of it yourself with a domain and hosting that YOU own

    I know niche sites but I really do not understand the fundamental concept of why not blogs but sites?

    and blogs can be self hosted and a blog is a site ... a web log

    they used to be main for keeping "logs" when they first came out, but today you can do so much with wordpress self hosted sites, they can be sales pages, squeeze pages, full member ship sites etc. not just for the old fashioned blog
