This alone means that, if your keyword has a high search volume, but with low competition, and HAS NOT YET BEEN TAKEN ON INFOBARREL, you can LOCK it in and be the exclusive user of that keyword, as is Squidoo!

I have about 10 keyword rich article titles just in draft status on infobarrel, as I gather all the information I need to write those articles.

This is indeed a plus for Infobarrel!
Thank you SO MUCH for pointing that out, Rain!

I do realize that this WSO, and product, are...um....rather "complex"....I don't meant that in a bad way (of course)....there is just SO MUCH for someone viewing this thread to digest and synthesize....

Jason and I did feel a very strong moral obligation, like I had said before, to identify major areas of offerings and functionality that Info Barrel, as an emerging platform, has over their competition....and their tremendous growth is a clear reflection of everything from how the website is managed, to how writer's (and content) are treated....

I could talk forever about this. I do encourage readers of this thread to read my previous responses.....they are really quite detailed and further reinforce why this is such a huge opportunity. At it's current rate, this site is on par to be the next HubPages or Squidoo....

....the funny thing is, I see that alot of Warriors have been joining it as of late (Could we very possibly be trend-setters? lol)

Rain, would you ever be interested IF I can get one, or both, of the owners/founders of Info Barrel to stop in and post on this thread?.....I do speak to Ryan quite frequently, and he was fully aware of my intent to develop this course....he has been a full supporter of it throughout its development....

These gentlemen have a very clear and distinct vision for this site and it WILL become a powerhouse in this industry shortly.

errrr....one other question, if you don't mind, Rain....

Do you feel that the detailed contents of these 6 books (and bonuses), while written specifically for Info Barrel, actually aid you in ANY online writing and article submission/production endeavor you have faced? (Whether you submit content to Squidoo, HubPages, EZA, or even your own blog)

....If so, do you find this course to be "valuable"?

Thanks you so much for all your feedback, Rain!

I don't think the word VALUABLE does justice to your content... and I note you're only selling it for a paltry $10 by the way... that's about as good as a Mickie D's super size meal right?!
You're probably doing more harm by selling this wso at a giveaway price than you think!

Back to the Valuable part... valuable to me sounds like the type of advice a bartender would give to you, you know, don't text when driving etc.

Your WSO however, it's a Compendium dude... it's a reference bible you can refer to over and over to gain competitive advantage over others who're just there to fill space!

I'm being brutally honest here...
When I first started with Squidoo... it was all about writing as many lenses as possible, and hoping to make it to the LOTD.
This was through trial and error, and there was no strategy to maximize on VIEWERSHIPS and traffic.

The same could be said about hubpages...

In essence, I learned the hard way till I found some really good ebooks on how to make money with those web2.0 properties, but by then, it was already too late, and look where squidoo is today!

So, getting your material so early in the game, well, all I can say is, I have ALL my infobarrel articles on the 1ST PAGE of the MIGHTY G!

Does that do it fer yeu Soldier?!

Great WSO, crappy pricing...should be out of reach of IM wannabes who'll mess it all up for everyone...IMHO!

Well, um..(ahem), you could I guess, but I'd hate to disappoint you by not revealing my content as I use multiple personas across the Internet... I could've written my articles on infobarrel as a Drag Queen for all you know, and I'd hate to let Lady Dada out of the Louis Vuitton Bag, so to speak, so early in the game!

I can't thank you enough for stopping by this thread, on occasion, Rainmak3r.

While we truly believe this is a very unique product embroiled in alot of complexity, unfortunately, conveying the benefits of the site (and the product) have been the trickiest thing for us to do. Believe it or not, you have managed to articulate some things that we had simply forgotten about....there are really several avenues to this website and product, and, sometimes I'm really convinced that only a select few "get it".

Many are so conditioned by all the threads and posts that taught HubPages or Squidoo or EZA, but doesn't being in IM mean staying on the cutting edge of things....especially as the internet continues to evolve?

Unfortunately, this course hasn't gained the attention we had hoped it would. It could be simply because people just "aren't ready" for it yet....if that makes any sense....

Many are very infatuated with other sites, but, I truly believe we caught on to a serious trend here....and, in our sales copy, we did try to convey where Info Barrel is heading in the future, and how that compares to the current business models, offerings, and functionality of similar websites.

.....The reason for the low price is because, well, many just aren't seeing the value of this course. It could be because of the sales copy (we've been hammered VERY hard over on the copywrite forum, however, I do value their honest feedback....)....I've had many tell us that our sales copy needs to essentially be completely gutted and re-worked, even beyond the point of just making a few revisions.

So, essentially, we are left with an amazing product....but, we are absolutely baffled when it comes to how to 'sell' and 'market' it.

A product like this, although great, doesn't make alot of bizarre income claims (YET...we'll be smashing some big numbers shortly)....and, for that reason, is definitely having trouble picking up any real traction in the WSO forum.

If you look at different categories of Info Barrel's "Top-100" lists, you can clearly see that both my partner and I (I have the cartoon soldier avatar, and he has the black background with the white question mark) are at the top (or near the top), in every category.

Top Memebers - Info Barrel

We've written upwards of 600+ articles combined (like the sales copy says), and, comparing the search engine authority of Info Barrel, to other higher ranked websites, we are absolutely smashing the monthly income of some of their highest earners with our methods and strategies. They are VERY VERY significant and valuable.

And, one of the most valuable aspects of this course....and, the one that will push a $97+ price point someday, is the fact that it can be used just about anywhere anyone writes or submits content to online, even beyond Info Barrel. (Have your own blog/website? How about Squidoo or HubPages or EZA? All these people can use this course)

Well, thank you very much, derek! It's an honor that your first post was on THIS thread....

I've posted this in this thread before, but, we caught onto an incredible trend that is going to make ALOT of people alot of money......even if they don't purchase our course, InfoBarrel is already beginning to assume near viral growth, as of late.....

The articles published to this platform are going to be an absolute goldmine. Analyze similar website platforms and you will find that they are among some of the highest ranked websites (in the WORLD).

FWIW....

I joined Info Barrel around July/August....
My partner and I began writing this course in August....

This is the GROWTH that Info Barrel has realized since we joined and began writing.

As Info Barrel continues to grow, so also will writer's earnings potential.

As much as we would love to see you write for Info Barrel, this course can be applied anywhere you choose to write online. As others have mentioned in this thread, you can also feel free to outsource it's strategies and principles, if need be, as well.

Hello Everyone....

Just drop by to say I purchased this WSO yesterday.... it's a HUGE package, I just started to read the main guide which is 130 pages. So I can't comment on the content yet.

But, I am certain that Howie & Jason are the real deal... you can feel it when you communicate with them through forum or email... they are the guys that really want to help you to succeed. Just read through this thread if you have time and you will immediately feel that these guys are for real.

Ok, I need to get back to work now... will read the Info Barrel guide after work instead of watching TV tonight...

Wow, I have to say that this book is filled with a TON of info. I read through here and had a few “Duh” moments. I couldn’t believe how simple some of the ideas/principles are, yet I never thought to use or implement them.

This course, e-book set, whatever you want to call it is very comprehensive. I think it’s good the way you guys set it up.

In the beginning you deal with all of the basics. I skipped around a little because I have a little background, but that’s perfect. For anyone that doesn’t have any background at all. It’s covered. You don’t have to worry about jumping in and not knowing what to do. It’s almost like a handheld course.

Then the next books go into some of the nitty gritty. That’s what I was looking for. Some of the SEO tricks, etc. I was also impressed that you kept it all clean to. No dirty tricks.

Thanks again and I think your book will fill a lot of gaps for people starting out on the web as well as people that already have a background.

Nice WSO here, and it's the first one I've bought!

I suspect a lot of it is stuff I already know, but then I'm already at the $10 a day from adsense stage (which ain't easy!), but I need to get to the $100 a day stage!

I can't fault value for money though, there is a *lot* here! Actually that's wrong - there is a *vast* amount here for the money!

I am now going to rewrite all my hub pages!

It's really an honor that you decided to 'pull the trigger' for your first WSO purchase being our WSO, DrGUID!....and, I hope our product gives you great value (it appears like it has), and serves to help you look highly upon all WSOs.

Both my partner and I aren't earning $100 a day, but, one must fully understand the current rank and search engine authority of Info Barrel in order to understand why. We are doing with a PR4 website what many have difficulty doing with well-established PR7 or PR8 websites....At this time, my partner, Jason, who wrote essentially the more 'technical' aspects of LSI and SEO books, is pushing over $30 consistently each and every day (that puts him near $1,000/month, JUST from the revenue share aspect of Info Barrel alone)

....had he taken advantage of affiliate links, his earnings would be much much higher, as he catapults his articles off the inherent search engine authority that Info Barrel offers.

Here is a VERY interesting post that you may want to consider reading, DrGUID....or anyone....

13 Alternatives to Writing and Making Money on eHow | The Smart Passive Income Blog

If you don't mind me asking, DrGUID....what was it about our product/sales copy/etc. that caused you to purchase? and, are you happy with your purchase, thusfar? We have had many comment on how the pricing should be more in the $150+ range....

Thanks and enjoy!

Thanks x3xsolxdierx3x!

I don't know why I bought your WSO, I am the world's most reluctant customer and I am astonishingly hard to convince to buy stuff.

But something struck a cord earlier today, so I bought. You're very lucky! The price was good though - it was a couple of week's adsense revenue for me so it felt about right.

But, seriously, I am interested in trying to find out how I can massively increase my success at article writing. I actually started writing a lot of adsense targetted webpages back in '04, but in those days Adsense didn't have the tools to show you which pages were making you money, so I failed to spot the rather interesting fact that I was making a better hourly wage writing web pages for my website than doing my day job.

My best hubpage makes a steady $3 a month - if all my hubs did that I'd be jubilant. My hubs make an average of $0.40 a month.

My problem is that 50% of my hubs are $0.00 income flops. The other problem is predicting which are going to be good hubs is difficult, although I think I've seen a few clues in your WSO. Google Analytics is helping me as well. One thing I have noticed is that the first hub I write in a new niche I haven't written about before is usually an epic win. The difficulty with this is that it's tough finding enough niches in which I can write the definitive article about.

I am convinced a lot of my fellow hubbers are lying about their income though, or they are counting affiliate income in with the mix. I have analysed their hubs and I just don't buy their stories about massive Google checks. Clickbank products convert well but finding good, original products outside of the forex/weightloss/total junk niches is not easy.

If I get time I'll write my own WSO. I feel I am on the verge of a major breakthrough so I want to tell the whole world! Anyway, here's my top "think outside the box" tip for free - a hub about "hubs" will do very well indeed on hubpages! No doubt an infobarrel about "barrels" or a lens about Squids will also do immensely well. I'd like to thank "The Answer" for allowing my subconcious to come up with an ingenious idea like that.

As to your product, I've only skimmed through 3 of the documents. Some stuff I already know, but it's nice to go back and tinker with existing pages. I find this business is extraordinarily leveraged. Small tweaks result in big bucks. Since I found out about YieldBuild and Ad placement I redesigned 2 of my sites and increased ad revenue 6x. If I'd have done that 20 minute job in 2004 I'd now have an extra $5000 in my bank account. Ouch!

After all I've read and the incredible testimonials, I'm ready to pull the trigger, as well.

But first, I had a couple questions:


  1. Approximately how many hours per day would I need to commit to daily to get this infoBarrel articles deal up and running, and to make some decent passive income down the road, ballpark?
  2. Also, if I publish an article on eZineArticles & other directories, as well as sell rights to it on Constant Content, can I publish that identical article on IB? (Forgive me if I missed this answer from a previous question; I just scanned the forum).

Default Re: Generous Fast-Growing Website Forges HUGE Competition for Elites: Squidoo, EZA, HubPages, eHow!!

created4success,

I'm going to diverge from the norm and tell you a few things that aren't necessarily intended to sell our course, but, rather, to give you a better idea of how you can leverage authority sites in an industry that is clearly evolving with each day.

In fact, some things I tell you may keep you from purchasing, at least for the time being.

Right now, Info Barrel is a PR4 website. When a website has less search engine authority, that means it will be more difficult for the articles you write to be found in the search engines. Info Barrel is a PR4 among many PR7 and 8 websites that, by virtue of having simply been around longer, have many more registered users, and article databases that are very mature.

This may get a bit confusing....but.....we caught onto a SERIOUS trend that few people realize until a website becomes situated like HubPages or eHow or Squidoo.

If one begins to use and apply our course now, to Info Barrel (it can actually be used for ANY website), they can make a killing now....but, the truth is, while Info Barrel is a PR4 website, it WILL take a bit more time and effort. On the inverse, with around 300 articles now, my partner is pushing $1,000/month.....BUT, they were all written in accordance to what we have laid out in our course.

If people choose to apply our course to Info Barrel, they will HAVE to consider current growth trends in order to form realistic expectations. The thing we have been trying to convey is that, as this website grows, the articles published now will be PURE GOLD.

Noone HAS to purchase our WSO, however, one of the reasons why it is so unique, and stands out from the crowd, is because we did MONTHS of research in order to ensure that this website was the real deal....our course's value has been intentionally tied into the search engine authority of this site. I do frequently speak to the owners, and I am 110% confident that this site will become one of the leading websites online, especially considering everything that has occurred with eHow, as of recent.

As per Pat Flynn's post comparing 13 other alternatives to eHow, I picked our 4 of Info Barrel's nearest competitors in order to give a bit of a visual as to how their growth has compared. Bear in mind, you are not seeing the Squidoos and HubPages and eHow's of the world, that, like I said, have simply been around much longer.

On Info Barrel, just from it's revenue share alone, you can earn up to 90% of your Adsense, Chitika, and Amazon revenue share, and 100% of your affiliate links, as compared to HubPages 60% revenue share, or Squidoo's tiered payment, or eHow's secret algorithm.

13 Alternatives to Writing and Making Money on eHow | The Smart Passive Income Blog
How to Determine the BEST Revenue Sharing Website to Write For | The Smart Passive Income Blog

I would HIGHLY recommend that you read these posts, as well as my comments (I use the same avatar there as here), in order to fully grasp the flaws and deficiencies of similar platforms, that make Info Barrel a prime candidate to become a Top-500 (at least) web property. It is inevitable.

The internet is evolving, and our product is on the cutting edge of it. With our current earnings now, even while Info Barrel is a PR4 website, we fully anticipate earning in excess of $5,000/month on our current articles (even if we do nothing else from today onward) when this is a PR7 or 8 website.

On a side note, created4success, you don't have to just use our course for Info Barrel (as much as we would LOVE to see you write there)....in fact, many have reported that they have used the information in our problem article troubleshooting guide to help address deficiencies (and hindrances to earning) in the HubPages' Hubs and Squidoo Lenses, as well....master this information, and you can use it anywhere....

We do hope that you (and others) can see what we are seeing as far as growth and potential. Info Barrel's platform, in itself, has been growing so drastically, as of late, because they simply address many of the flaws and deficiencies of even the most Elite, top-ranked, websites.

I apologize for not answering your questions directly, in my last post...I went off on a bit of a tangent....

  1. Approximately how many hours per day would I need to commit to daily to get this infoBarrel articles deal up and running, and to make some decent passive income down the road, ballpark?
I can't give an exact number here....I may regret saying this because I'm so passionate about Info Barrel and it's emergence as a top ranked website, however, I had mentioned before, it is a PR4 website with only a fraction of the search engine authority as a site like, say, Squidoo or HubPages. If you apply our course to HubPages, or Squidoo, by virtue of their inherent search engine authority, you can get your articles ranking faster, more quickly....and, thus have to invest less time. On the other hand, if you do this, I would recommend at least submitting a few articles to Info Barrel......akin to putting some money at the basement level of a killer stock....I would make sure you have SOME articles submitted there....they will be pure gold when Info Barrel is a PR7 or 8 website. They will be...just watch.

2. Also, if I publish an article on eZineArticles & other directories, as well as sell rights to it on Constant Content, can I publish that identical article on IB? (Forgive me if I missed this answer from a previous question; I just scanned the forum).

You can't publish the identical article on IB, for a variety of reasons, that I have spoken to the owners about because I have had a few questions about that. You'd be surprised though....alot of online directories, nowadays, are erring AGAINST duplicate content....wanting their databases to be only purely unique and original content.

You can see what I am talking about HERE, under the "Duplicate Content" column:

http://crunchydata.com/content-sites.htm

ALso, HERE is another chart, of the Traffic rank of Info Barrel. With more search engine authority, people's articles will be found more quickly and they'll stand to earn ALOT more:

As Info Barrel continues to grow exponentially, I'll continue to update this thread with new graphs....Even if you don't prefer to write for Info Barrel, this course is still extremely valuable and has even gained the attention of a few top bloggers who swear by it.

I can also add to this the fact that you need to spot these revenue sharing sites when they're young. The top hubpages users were largely those who got on board in 2006. I am catching up, but god only knows how people managed to get 700+ fans!

It's especially important on infobarrel where they're really fussy about what you write and the best topics are filling up fast.

I think you need to write 4 articles a day to have any chance of doing this full time. But 1 decent article a day would be worth doing.

I don't yet know if infobarrel is the real deal (to be fair I only signed up yesterday!), but the WSO has plenty of tips you can use on other sites.

Very good point, DrGUID! One of the reasons why our WSO is so unique is because we did exactly that: we caught onto a tremendous trend, and recent growth only validates that.

"...and the best topics are filling up fast."

This is exactly correct! Even as I speak (type), I have a separate screen open, as I work on securing some VERY good article titles. As I have mentioned before, those titles will be pure gold as Info Barrel continually chips away at the traffic of websites like eHow, Squidoo, and HubPages.

"I think you need to write 4 articles a day to have any chance of doing this full time. But 1 decent article a day would be worth doing."

Readers must understand why our earnings on Info Barrel are so significant. Even as a PR4 website, the things we are teaching here, have been so effective that we are producing results comparable to what some of the top earners on HubPages, Squidoo, and eHow earn. We did this PURELY from revenue share.....

In fact, during the 6 months that we were writing for and mastering this website, I dabbled with affiliate links on a small handful of my articles, however, my partner (Jason), now earns upwards of $1,000/month from PURELY revenue share....he didn't add a single affiliate link to any of his articles during the research and writing of this WSO.

This isn't something that was hatched overnight.

We caught onto these growth trends early, and you can see us (our Avatars) at the TOP in a few categories on their Top-100 list currently.

Top Memebers - Info Barrel

We know what we are talking about....and, we are 100% confident that we will be earning in excess of $3,000-$5,000 from purely revenue share when this site has the search engine authority that the HubPages and Squidoos of the world have.

Learn these techniques and strategies now, and you can apply them WHEREVER you write online (as much as we would love to see you write for Info Barrel)

If the testimonials/reviews here weren't enough, I have decided to continuously update this thread with growth trends/traffic rank/reach/etc, of Info Barrel....

Yesterday, Info Barrel broke into the Top-4,000 websites in the U.S., for traffic rank.....

I'll say it again...and again...and again...if you aren't using this website, already, you are leaving a TON of money on the table.

I browsed through some of your articles in infobarrel and was surprised to discover that the adsense ads had absolutely nothing to do with your content in half a dozen or so that I checked.

Are you aware of this, and if so, is this common for infobarrel?

Also, is there a reason why you dont create backlinks for your submitted articles? Wouldnt that help you with your rankings? I only checked a few aritcles to make this assumption.

btw, I have not yet bought your WSO.

Arttse,

As Info Barrel continually grows, and becomes more popular, you'll find that ads will become more and more relevant....there are many issues at play, concurrently, that we have addressed in our course, in detail.

....also....you checked 6 (1/2 a dozen) of my 230+ articles, and found that the ads were not relevant? I really try my best.....I have quite a few articles to manage, and some that really don't lend to targetted advertisement (that I really didn't write for money)...

I know that sounds a bit strange, but I have written many articles, since August 2009, about Info Barrel itself, as a platform, just to genuinly help the community out. Those articles were written moreso to develop myself as an authority there, and, someone who is willing to help (With over 1,000+ forum posts there, I believe I have)....

FWIW...

Some very big bloggers are catching on to Info Barrel recently:
The Next Best Revenue Sharing Site to Write For Is… | The Smart Passive Income Blog

I have left MANY very lengthy comments there that may be of interest to you.....

Arttse,

Current growth trends indicate that Info Barrel will becoming a Top-500 web property. I truly believe that it has the management and functionality (and community) to become a Top-100 website.

Since I began this WSO, Info Barrel's growth has been nothing short of explosive. I caught onto this trend early, and, the reason why so many copies of our course have sold, I believe, is because people are gradually becoming attuned to this trend.

When bloggers like Pat Flynn, who earns in excess of $10,000-$15,000 each month consistently, take notice of a site like Info Barrel, in order to dedicate an entire post to it, it may be time to pay attention to it....

Just finished reading the course - it's a cradle to grave system that takes beginners on a ride to the more advanced methods of article promotion. I learned a few SEO tricks that I had never seen before as well - which was well worth the read. Highly recommended!

The Info Barrel Success ebook motivated me to get started writing for Info Barrel the day I began reading it. Using the book's advice, I was able to quickly navigate Info Barrel's writer platform and submit an article with ease. Best of all, the very day it got published, I got my first ad click for $1.09!

I highly recommend that everyone - whether you're an affiliate marketer, stay-at-home mom, single parent, college kid, retired senior citizen, or just someone who wants to make a little money on the side - should invest time in reading the Info Barrel Success ebook. Not only is it intuitive and easy to understand, it takes readers on a step by step journey from beginning to end with no room for doubt in between.

But read it soon, and don't procrastinate! Info Barrel is a burgeoning platform, which means that more writers are signing up in droves and will compete with you for readers. The sooner you read this book, the sooner you can embark on your road to success through writing at Info Barrel.

Definitely the next best crowd sourcing website revenue sharing site. I got a chance to read the infobarrel success ebook and learned so much from it. My income has grown since and I really liked to thank Howie and Jason for writing such in detail ebooks.

I don't think you'll find another ebook that packs all this information together. You won't have to even get another product after you're done with this.

I know that what I am saying sounds like I'm review the book for them, but honestly I am just excited because there's a lot of people that promise you million and what not online but don't really offer value.

These guys are truly about value. The biggest lesson I got from this was:

Importance of keywords research, LSI, and quality of content, and much more. Those three things really did it for me though.

Thank you so much for your comments, Wilson! Prior to spending the 5+ months writing this product, we spent hundreds of dollars purchasing other products that were similar, and for other platforms (like eHow). The interesting thing about this course....and, the reason it stands out like it does....is because we intentionally tied it's success into the success of the site. With Info Barrel's generous revenue share offerings, transparency, management, etc, it's exponential growth is indicating that it will be flirting with the big boys in the revenue share Web 2.0 industry shortly.

Another interesting thing about this product is that it has been purchased, by marketing firms and marketing directors, for well in excess of the price that we are selling it for here.

One person who read and reviewed our course actually WON'T affiliate with it because we are offering it for so low of a price, compared to the incredible value we offer over 6 books.

To anyone who reads this thread, I would like to HIGHLY encourage you to read this thread that I have been contributing to, over on the Info Barrel forum. The trends we caught onto, with Info Barrel, are trends that few SEO specialists/experts even realize....at least not yet.

Those who begin using this site NOW, will have the added benefited of being able to secure hot titles NOW, and allow their articles to mature while Info Barrel continues to grow exponentially.

An Info Barrel Graph Worth Sharing (Bounce Rate %) - InfoBarrel Forum

Here is another thread, that was begun by an individual at a $97 price point:

SEO finally made easy, comprehensible - InfoBarrel Forum

You don't find opportunities like this very often. Info Barrel is on the basement floor, but it has the management, offerings, and functionality that will develop it into a Top-200 (at least) Alexa website property.

Just watch.

If you've ever wondered how you can use keyword tools to amp up your article views, look no further. Howie Roman and Jason Mayer lay down everything a beginner needs to know about optimizing their Info Barrel articles for search engine friendliness.

As someone who's had nearly four years of experience dabbling in article writing and Internet marketing, with a focus on article marketing and PPC, I already had some SEO knowledge under my belt. But I guess I didn't know what I didn't know, and that's where Howie and Jason's book came in very handy.

Not only do I now have a much better grasp of how the free Wordtracker tool gets its keyword information, I now know how to use Wordtracker results alongside the Google AdWords Keyword Tool results to pick the best keywords for my articles with as little competition as possible.

I highly recommend "SEO Strategies for Info Barrel" to anyone interested in making money on Info Barrel or optimizing their articles for article marketing.

Precious,

Awesome! Be sure to stop by the community forum some time...it's booming....

".....never heard of it before."

Alot of people, especially IM'ers, haven't. We caught the trend VERY early.

This site has the business model, functionality, and offerings to become a Top ranked Alexa property. Growth has been nothing short of staggering.

If people aren't using this site NOW, and allowing their articles to mature while snagging up the HOT titles, they are seriously missing the boat on something truly amazing.

I just wanted to drop by and say how awesome this package is. This is the most thorough guide I have either bought or gotten free from the WF. I lucked out and got it for $77.

I cannot tell you that I am rolling in dough because of this yet, because I am not going to implement the strategies until October. But when I do, I will try to remember to come back and post earnings info, as I am certain they will be spectacular.

If you are on the fence about getting this, do it. Even if you do not use infobarrel at all in the future, there is some great information in here that can be used for all types of article marketing (I especially liked the section on LSI).

Thank you Howie!

Thank you very much for this review, Casey, and we certainly wish you the best when you do begin to implement all the information. When you really decide to hit Info Barrel hard with writing, because of the highly technical nature of our course, I really encourage you to contact Jason and/or I if you need any help...any help...whatsoever. We really value the support we've been giving, yet few people take advantage of it.

One thing we intentionally did, in order to inject a significant amount of value into this course, was that we aligned it with a massively growing PR4 website. Few seem to understand the value of getting in on the "ground floor" of a site like this. The funny thing is that I just responded to a thread, on the main forum, that details how people are getting tired of using Ezine Articles because of the plethora of adverts that they display on each article, yet they share absolutely none of that revenue with writers.

There is clearly a bit of a trend and paradigm shift where "Info Barrel" is beginning to continually spring up in conversations in IM circles. While I would never conclude that any one site is absolutely perfect, Info Barrel's business model is superior to just about every other Web 2.0 platform online.

Because Squidoo has always been a major player in this online space, I wrote a few articles that I think some here may find very interesting and compelling:

I have not purchased or reviewed the product here, but a friend of mine and I who were mad dog writers on eHow (and continue to profit from it, depite it's effective demise with Demand Media) have experimented with InfoBarrel (among many other upstart/established Web 2.0/Content sites) and have not had good results - and we are using the same optimization techniques, and sometimes even the same broad/phrase topics.

I would chalk it up to just missing on the keywords, but we are not experiencing this same issue on the established properties - in particular Squidoo and HubPages. Not enough earnings to buy a cup of coffee a month, page 4 and beyond rankings for certain keywords that have front page rankings for other articles sites.

I am glad you have had success and can share it - I just have not seen any results from this site, and I do see results from the others.

Default Re: Generous Fast-Growing Website Forges HUGE Competition for Elites: Squidoo, EZA, HubPages, eHow!!

ckatheman,

Thank you for your comment. There are many who have mixed feelings with regards to eHow, and past occurences there. At one point, I was wildly outspoken about some things, however, the effort required began to seriously drain me.....

Some rather influential bloggers did begin to catch on to what many perceived as seriously moral and ethical questionable behavior:
http://www.conversationmarketing.com...l-bull****.htm

They have their company/website, and, as such, can run it however they like. Because of their monumental pre-established search engine authority, some writers do continue to earn a significant amount there, even long after the closure of their WCP.

I'm sorry that you haven't had similar results on Info Barrel, however, there are a few things to consider here. At this time, while it's growing quite well, it has only a fraction of the search engine authority that a more established site, like eHow, has. Plainly spoken, this essentially means that it can be a bit more difficult to earn on Info Barrel.

One of the reasons why we believe our course is so valuable, however, is because Jason and I have managed to do on a PR4 site (with significantly less authority), what many could only hope to do on PR6/7/8 websites. Not only is this a testament to Info Barrel's very generous revenue share, but, we believe, is also a testament to all the content/tips/strategies that we have aggregated into this course.

It really was a 'labor of love' for 5+ months....a planned course that took that long to write before we even decided to launch it as a WSO. As we aligned the course with the platform, we HAD to make sure that this platform was truly the next best Web 2.0 revenue sharing website. We felt we would be doing customers a great injustice if we proceeded to sell a course, about a platform, that acted in any moral or ethically comprised manner. On top of that, we felt we couldn't sell this course unless we made a VERY compelling case for this platform, amongst the plethora of other websites vying for attention.

You can hold this site's revenue share arrangement, business model, functionality, and offerings, next to some of the 'elite' websites in this industry, and you can see why we truly believe that this will be a top ranked Alexa property in the world.

....as far as earnings, for as much as I would love to see you write for Info Barrel, I encourage you to go/stay where you feel you reap the best reward for your time invested. Just a few days ago, Jason did have his first $44 day, on Info Barrel, from STRICTLY adsense revenue share:

These earnings are particularly significant because:

1) He managed to do this without emplacing a single affiliate (clickbank, linkshare, cj, etc) link. Few will believe us when we say this, be we did ALOT of things intentionally, throughout the development of our course, in order to prove the true potential of this course, and the platform. One thing that we did, in particular, was refrain wholey and completely from emplacing affiliate links. We had wanted an absolutely pure reflection of the Adsense revenue share. Had Jason emplaced affiliate links his earnings would have been exponentially greater.

2) We have managed to do this on a site with significantly less search engine authority than HubPages, eHow or Squidoo. When this site is ranked more evenly with those sites, we fully anticipate earning in excess of at least $100/day. With our current content, had we done nothing else, as our articles mature and Info Barrel grows, we believe that will be a conservative estimate of our earnings.

3) I don't want to get into 'fights' with people, however, for all the SEO experts out there, noone will take us up on our challenge to replicate our results. While some people have done challenges with HubPages and Squidoo, no guru will attempt to do the same on a much lower ranked/authority website. They can do as they please, but, I would be VERY convinced of the power of their methods if they attempted to replicate what we have on a much lower authority site.

None of these gurus will even try, and while some shy away from using Info Barrel completely (because it's a PR4 site), I'm churning out content like its no tomorrow. I didn't get a piece of Google stock when it was young, but can you imagine where those people are now....who got in on the basement floor? This is what Info Barrel is akin to....and, I've dedicated a tremendous amount of this thread to make a case for this site. I've given all the forwarning that I can give.

People don't have to buy the product, but their growth has been nothing short of amazing since I first began telling people to write there in August 2009.

I would chalk it up to just missing on the keywords, but we are not experiencing this same issue on the established properties - in particular Squidoo and HubPages. Not enough earnings to buy a cup of coffee a month, page 4 and beyond rankings for certain keywords that have front page rankings for other articles sites.

I am glad you have had success and can share it - I just have not seen any results from this site, and I do see results from the others.

Although I signed onto InfoBarrel when I first heard about it in 2008, I didn't actually even write my first article for them until Monday of this week. After doing some in-depth research and trying to find a new article directory that would be a leader in the future, I found InfoBarrel. I actually created a challenge for myself on InfoBarrel to test the waters, and wrote about that here at the WF, where I ran into Howie. And let me tell you, Howie seriously KNOWS HIS STUFF!

I had the pleasure to read through this WSO, and let me be the first to say this was unlike ANY other WSO I've seen. This is what this WSO isn't:

- This isn't a typical "here's how to make $X,XXX in 60 seconds while spinning upside down on your head" type of product

- It's not a pamphlet with the latest "fad" method

- It's not a product with rehashed information spread across 200 pages is size 72 font

- And, it's NOT something of low value - not even close

Howie and Jason put their work into this guide. When they say it's all about months and months of research, the proof is in the pudding here. These guys break InfoBarrel down to almost an exact science, and it's clear that their research suggests that InfoBarrel is well on its way to becoming the next Squidoo, the next Hubpages, the next eHow and the next (whatever other high authority, profitable web 2.0 site here).

The actual guide in this package is well over 130+ pages, giving you all the beef you need to know about InfoBarrel and how to succeed there as a writer. Then, there are the various guides to supplement what you learn in the main guide. The two most important guides I read through were on SEO and LSI/LSA. Reading those two guides ALONE could benefit you not just at InfoBarrel, but on ANY article directory you're working on. These guys break down LSI/LSA and SEO in newbie friendly ways so ANYONE can understand how to do it effectively. And like they mention in both guides - Once you actually DO the stuff they show, it'll become second nature.

These guys really dig into every detail aspect of InfoBarrel, even getting into the specifics of HTML, how to use images to increase CTR of Adsense ads and other techniques to increase CTR on your ads. Plus, InfoBarrel not only gives you 75% to 90% of revenue for any ads clicked on, but you also can use their signature box to promote your websites. To me, it's a win-win.

Being new to InfoBarrel (but not new to IM or article marketing), this product help me not only grasp InfoBarrel so I now know how to approach it with a profitable mindset, but it also made me realize that by taking a chance and getting in on this site while it's relatively young could earn me quite a strong passive income down the road. With Howie's and Jason's research on the growth trends of InfoBarrel, it's easy to see this is a gold mine.

This product (and all of its components) far outweigh any other WSO's in the price range. In fact, I think for the WSO price, these guys clearly over-deliver. I've bought products for the same price and received nothing more than a simple 25 page PDF with a method that soon was ineffective. And, the value that's in here (especially if you get in with InfoBarrel now before it takes off) is truly priceless.

Typically most internet marketing products are a gamble. You spend $50 and hope to learn a thing or two, but chances are, you either don't use it or the methods become outdated and you earn nothing (even lose some). This product is an investment.

You don't want to be the one who people look at and say "I told you so" when InfoBarrel takes off, so I'd suggest getting this product now while the "gettin's still good"!

Wow, Bryan, we REALLY appreciate the time you took to write that. Not only that, I think you really conveyed alot of the things we have been trying to convey on this thread for months.

In it's earliest days, we approached some of the serious SEO/IM gurus about Info Barrel (before we even decided to devout 5+ months to writing this course). I mean, these are the guys who have gone on to sell tens of thousands of books, and others who have paid monthly subscription based membership sites that earn thousands a month.

Yet, we've been given the cold shoulder so many times....and, we kept persevering. Let's just say, Info Barrel only currently has a fraction of the search engine authority of the HubPages and Squidoos of the world, yet we are both doing what others, on those more established sites, could only dream about. Ask anyone on those sites if they are doing $40+ a day, from STRICTLY Adsense revenue share.

Our earnings don't even take into consideration other monetization methods that we INTENTIONALLY neglected in order to provide the most pure earning's potential outlook as it relates strictly to Google Adsense. This site is poised to be a top ranked authority website, and over 5,000+ people have viewed this thread, and many have completely ignored it.

I won't say that this will be the size of Google or Facebook, but, for IM'ers and freelance writers, the position of the Author's signature box alone (like Bryan had mentioned) makes this site fully worthy of usage. I didn't get in on the ground floor of Google, but can you imagine how those that did, then, feel now? (I'm sure some of the earliest investors may have even been laughed at....)....people have called me crazy, yet, per Info Barrel's blog, I think THESE numbers speak for themselves...

1 Year:

Alexa ranking: Roughly 60K (global)
Published Articles: 4341
Articles per day average: 56.61
Writers: 2497

2 Years:

Alexa ranking: 7342 (global)
Published Articles: 35,200+
Articles per day average: 130+
Writers: 19775+

Where other, more "elite" websites are failing to effectively control for quality, Info Barrel has emerged with a superior business model and platform incentivization that is beginning to make some serious waves in this industry.

Thanks again, Bryan!

oh....and, Bryan....are you familiar with websites that obtain a Premium Google Adsense account? Info Barrel writer's earnings will go up exponentially once they achieve one (when, not "if"....)....

Not a problem Howie - Like I mentioned, everything I said in my review is as honest as it gets. Other people need to see the value, or they're going to regret it while we're bringing in a solid passive income down the road!

Check your PM when you have a chance. Had a couple more quick questions.

Thanks,
Bryan

@x3xsolxdierx3x I understand that you haven't mentioned a money back guarantee in this WSO, but I would like to get a refund for your product (I sent email to howie [@] tacticalcashflow.com and explained all reasons yesterday, but haven't got answer from you). Thank you in advance.

Interesting reason, however, none was expected. Your refund has been given.

Bear in mind that your purchase price was greatly discounted from the many copies that have been sold at $97+. Likewise, we can no longer provide you with the in depth support included in the package (by the sound of your email, and your expertise, it does not sound like you need it anyway). We don't say that to be jerks, however, we do spend hours upon hours providing direct email support, and simply cannot do that now.

While no reason will be asked for, since a refund request was made publicly, I do find it necessary to convey to future potential customers that this is the 2nd refund made for our product of several hundred copies sold (the first refund request was made roughly 3 minutes after our 300+ pages of product was successfully delivered and secured). This gentleman has many years of SEO/article writing experience, and did mention that he would still be willing to purchase future products.

I do appreciate your approach and tactfulness in your email. Even though you did not find any new material, in accordance with your own personal experience, an entirely new Info Barrel website will be launched shortly....and, it will greatly increase and enhance user earnings. I would still encourage you to contribute content there if you can. With your extensive background, I am 100% sure that you do realize the potential of this website when I say it will be a top ranked website in the world shortly.

Default Re: Generous Fast-Growing Website Forges HUGE Competition for Elites: Squidoo, EZA, HubPages, eHow!!

Just a few general points:

1) Info Barrel, by its nature, is a very dynamic and complex platform. As any viable Web 2.0 model should do, it's ownership have been continually testing, and adjusting functionality on the site as it relates to writer earnings (and their own bottom line). Within a few weeks (Today is October 26th, 2010), an entirely new platform (different logo, etc) will be released....which will substantially increase writers potential to earn. From what I hear, elements of Squidoo's functionality will be integrated, making 'modules' of sorts for writers to monetize and share in revenue. Like other revenue sharing websites, however, the use of your own affiliate links will incur you 100% revenue share.

While some aspects of the site will change, in order to best optimize ad layout/writer's earnings, the fundamentals will not change.

2) Most of Jason and my earnings come from the up to 90% revenue share offered by Info Barrel. While I have begun testing different affiliations/links, much of our earnings come from Adsense. Our course does cover basic HTML....which will show writers how to integrate Amazon, Clickbank, Linkshare, Commission Junction, etc, affiliate links, on their own. Yes, this is very fundamental, however, we must cover it because questions are still being asked about these things to this very day. We fully understand that the OP may very well be very knowledgable in these fundamentals, however, we would be doing many new online writers an injustice if we did not cover the basics. I sincerely hope that this is understandable....

3) The support we provide, as included in this package, is very thorough and time consuming. We love our customers, but we simply cannot continue to provide detailed support to those who request refunds. Many of my emails have taken no less than 30 min-1 hour to craft. Because of the dynacism of the Info Barrel platform, it is absolutely necessary that we provide as thorough of support as possible. Our hourly rate, working as a team, is over $100/hour for individual clients. Those who purchase at the current WSO price are receiving a huge discount. While very humble, we are also very skilled, and simply cannot undervalue our time. We are fully dedicated to those who have the desire to succeed....and, our skill set goes way beyond application to Info Barrel. Once again, in all humility, I can confidently say that our earnings absolutely smash the earnings of others on comparable, much higher ranked/authority, website platforms. For us to be doing, what we are doing, on a PR4 site...is unheard of...it really is.

4) There are 'SEO' experts and specialists who won't even touch this platform. Yet, even as a PR4 site (currently), Jason is consistently earning over $50/day in entirely passive income a day, already. These earnings come STRICTLY from 90% Google Adsense revenue share. Throughout the months of production of this course, not a shred of his earnings came from a single integrated affiliate link. As mentioned earlier in this thread, we had intentionally done this in order to give pure insight into strictly the Adsense revenue share potential of this platform. Earnings would have been significantly higher had we integrated affiliate links. In the platform's current configuration, at the time of this writing, Amazon affiliations can be integrated either as part of the site's internal structure, or as integrated by a writer themselves.

We have approached some of the 'best' SEO'ers in the business, and have been ignored. Bear in mind, this WSO was begun almost a year ago (at the time of this writing), and, as you can see with growth trends, we were dead on in our prediction that this would be a top-ranked website in the world. You do not have to purchase our course, however, if you are not yet writing for Info Barrel, you are leaving a significant amount of money on the table.

It is important to realize that, on Web 2.0 rev sharing websites, it is in the owner's inherent best interest to do everything they can to maximize earnings....when they work in your best interest, they work in their best interest, and vice versa. Info Barrel ownership is doing that.....Both Jason and I fully expect to be earning in excess of $100/day, in entirely passive income, shortly. We will update this thread with earnings results.....

I highly recommend this course for anyone who's not already an expert in SEO and LSI and epecially for those writing for InfoBarrel. This book starts nice and easy for the beginners but quickly gets into the "meat" of everything you need to know to begin writing for profit.

I was already writing and had published around 25 articles before I read this manual. I thought I had done a pretty good job until I read this and figured out all of the tips and tricks that I had been missing out on! It's well-written and has a great flow unlike so many manuals concerning online writing and SEO. This article was written with actual people in mind so it's not overly filled with hard to understand technical jargon.

If you truly want to make money by writing online, I not only suggest you head over to InfoBarrel, but I definitely recommend that you get a copy of InfoBarrel Sucess! If you tried to pick this information up, bit by bit, from varied sources as you go, you are going to be wasting valuable time that you could be spending writing articles that will make you money!

I was able to put this guide to use withing moments of finishing it! I can't wait for the earnings to start increasing, which I know they will! I went from not being able to even find my articles on Google to the FIRST PAGE!! This is a really great book that you'll want to keep close by so that you can go back to it again and again.

This book is a must-have resource for anyone writing online. Whether you're writing for profit or you just want people to be able to find your articles, grab up a copy of InfoBarrel Sucess!!! Thank you guys for the excellent resource!

Hello all,
I just thought I would share my opinions and experience.

I am not new to InfoBarrel or other online revenue sharing websites. In fact, I have been writing for over a year and have about 1500 articles out there in the web (not including ones that I wrote as a ghost writer). All in all, I have done better than many, but not particularly good. No one gets excited and starts quoting my earnings which are around $300 a month. Yes, $300 a month could be nice, but for three years of work and 1500 articles, not so much. To be honest though, I look at the early articles and laugh. They are pretty bad and often on topics that are completely useless for making money. Anyway...I am losing focus here. I am not new and I credit myself with quite a bit of knowledge learned through trial and error.

I even knew what my problems were, just not really how to fix them. I didn't do any search engine optimization, I have never done a keyword search in my life, and don't promote my work (hope someone finds those articles some day!).

InfoBarrel Success addressed all of these things and lots more. It does so in a way that makes it easy for everyone whether you have never published an article online or you have 170 published at InfoBarrel (hmmm...who would that be) and won a contest jcmayer777 was trying to win. While geared specifically for InfoBarrel these ideas will help you in all content production online and will help you earn more from your articles, your blogs, and your websites.

I have come to believe whole heartedly in it (though I was a skeptic and afraid to spend money on it. I even wanted to make sure that I could get a refund if it was bad, to which I was told "definitely"). If you want to read more about my thoughts and to keep up with how it effects my earnings then check out my review.

Thanks for a moment of your time,

Default Re: InfoBarrel: Generous Website Forges HUGE Competition for Elites: Squidoo, EZA, HubPages, eHow!!!

I have been writing online for a little over a year now, and I have always been fascinated with SEO. I think it is cool how we can use SEO techniques to give articles a catapult up the SERPs and increase views and potential earnings. To me, it's kind of like a game.

Over the last year I have spent countless hours researching SEO techniques, from white-hat to black-hat. I have ran several of my own tests and experiments on a variety of article-submission sites such as eHow, Bukisa. Then I found InfoBarrel at the beginning of 2010 and was drawn in by the very generous rev-share and the easy-to-use platform that allowed for multiple formats and writing styles.

My first 30 articles or so were just transfers from Bukisa and eHow, as I was still soaking up as much knowledge as possible about SEO techniques. I started paying close attention to JCmayer777's success on InfoBarrel and trying to figure out what he was doing different than everyone else. I noticed some comments he made about SEO and LSI specifically, which really got me curious.

At this time, the eBook was still being written and hadn't been released, so I spent a great deal of time trying to figure out what LSI and LSA were from various websites. I got the jist of it, but never fully understood it. I started writing articles using tips I learned from JCmayer777's comments on InfoBarrel, as well as what I learned from the info I gathered from other online sources. This was the single-most important decision I ever made, because I instantly began seeing my earnings increase.

Over the next few months I pumped out a good 100-200 articles on InfoBarrel (and other sites like HubPages) using the LSI and keyword density tips I learned from JCMayer.

It was not until finally reading the eBook a month or two ago that I actually fully understood what LSI/LSA is and how it works. Jason explained this aspect better than anything/anyone else I have ever read. I mean I spent a good 7 months trying to fully comprehend it all by reading other free information, but the way Jason explains it just makes everything click and come together.

I know for an absolute fact, from real experience, that the keyword density and LSI techniques laid out in the eBook truly work. Seriously, all anyone has to do to make money with their articles is to use these tips. It's not even that difficult, either. As long as you write your article a certain way, chances are it will get a good ranking right off the bat and it seems like it speeds up the maturity process because it give the Google spiders a little help figuring out what your content is about.

I personally make about $20 a day on InfoBarrel with less than 200 articles. My earnings have virtually doubled every month since using the LSI/keyword density techniques, and they continue to grow each month. I have used these techniques on other rev-sharing sites like HubPages and Snipsly and have seen similar success, but obviously since InfoBarrel has a great rev share model, I earn more with them on average. The information in this eBook can help anyone. If you like to write, then you'll like using the techniques given because it makes writing more like a game, it gives it a whole new aspect, and it's fun because when you do it right, you earn money!

I want to thank Howie and Jason for being kind enough to not only write this eBook, but also let me read it at no charge. Admittedly, I was reluctant to purchase it because I was afraid that I already knew everything in it. While I did know about keyword density, and had a decent understanding of LSI, the eBook just kind of made the LSI a lot easier to understand. Also, I am not big on social media, so I cannot comment on those eBooks (yet).

To sum it up, if you are an article-writer and don't feel like you're making enough money for your work, the techniques in the eBook are probably all that you're missing. Even if you only employ one of the techniques, whether it's keyword density, LSI, or social media promotion, you are going to give your monthly earnings a significant kick. I highly recommend the InfoBarrel Success eBook for anyone trying to make money online with articles.

Hey All,

Howie gave me a copy of his Info Barrel Success course for me to review. I am amazed.

I have been writing for several years and have had nothing I have used compare to this course. Howie and Jason have literally taken time to handhold people through the success hoops of Info Barrel. There's no way you cannot make money there unless you just don't do the work.

The main ebook covers absolutely everything you need to know and in great detail. I was blown away by the tremendous amount of work that appears to have gone into this masterpiece. They leave nothing out and nothing to the imagination. Everything is covered from using html to how to use social media to help you make money. I particularly liked the methods they went through on how to promote your articles and earn money.

The SEO guide is one of the most thorough I have ever seen. When you use this guide, if you do not get high search engine visibility, you did not follow the instructions well. They make it almost fool-proof. One of the sections I liked extremely well was on keyword density. Many people have tried to explain this in various ways. These folks put it together in a very understandable language. Absolutely great for a beginner.

I was always confused with LSI and LSA, but not any more. I agree with them when they say that these and SEO will be your bread and butter when using articles for revenue.

They have included a trouble shooting guide for articles that is second to none. This guide will give you guidance on any aspect of your articles that appear to be giving you trouble. I found this guide particularly useful for some of my older articles that were not getting very much traffic and actually needed to be rewritten.

And if that weren't enough, they go through and the steps needed to remove writer's block. I found this very useful when looking for new ideas to write articles on.

All-in-all this is probably the most power packed course I have seen for article marketing on any site. The ground is all covered systematically and thoroughly. I really do believe nothing has been left out.

Outstanding!!



I highly recommend this course, both to new people just starting out and seasoned vets who may need to work their business over with some methods that have been explained in great detail.

Jason and I can't thank you enough for your honest review, CC! It's great to see you so active on Info Barrel....writing articles and posting on the forum. I've followed your work closely, and have been really impressed by the quality of your writing. This past week, it was VERY impressive to see your article about breast feeding rake in well over 200 views in 2 days.

You can see that the potential of the internet, and Info Barrel in general, is VERY huge.

Judging by what I've seen so far, as Info Barrel continues to grow and gain search engine authority, I really bet that (with a 90% revenue share) that you can easily push over $1,000+/month.....

The early adopters of Info Barrel will stand to gain the most! Just watch...

I was already writing and had published around 25 articles before I read this manual. I thought I had done a pretty good job until I read this and figured out all of the tips and tricks that I had been missing out on! It's well-written and has a great flow unlike so many manuals concerning online writing and SEO. This article was written with actual people in mind so it's not overly filled with hard to understand technical jargon.

If you truly want to make money by writing online, I not only suggest you head over to InfoBarrel, but I definitely recommend that you get a copy of InfoBarrel Sucess! If you tried to pick this information up, bit by bit, from varied sources as you go, you are going to be wasting valuable time that you could be spending writing articles that will make you money!

I was able to put this guide to use withing moments of finishing it! I can't wait for the earnings to start increasing, which I know they will! I went from not being able to even find my articles on Google to the FIRST PAGE!! This is a really great book that you'll want to keep close by so that you can go back to it again and again.

This book is a must-have resource for anyone writing online. Whether you're writing for profit or you just want people to be able to find your articles, grab up a copy of InfoBarrel Sucess!!! Thank you guys for the excellent resource!

Hi,

I reviewed the books and here's what I have to say...

I’m amazed at all the information contained in these books. The writers went out of their way to explain in detail every detail. They leave nothing out and share the important aspects of making the most out of Info Barrel... down to the last pixel in what size photos work best.

Often you will buy reports or ebooks and you are left wondering what to do afterwards. There will be none of that here; it is clear what you need to do. It is one of the most comprehensive “how to books” I have ever read and I have bought many. If you are unable to succeed on Info Barrel after reading this information, it is not because you did not know how.

The book also looks at other revenue sharing sites and you just might learn some surprising information. I plan to recommend this site to a few of my friends that need some extra money, and to my son who loves to write.

Writers block
Loved it, it was full of good information and creative ways to search for ideas to write articles on. It gave me some ideas from a person’s view not an internet marketer writing based on keyword counts for search phrases, though that can spark a person to write as well.

Bad articles
Again, excellent information it never occurred to me to use the Google site for checking why some of my own articles were bringing up certain ads. I was told to use “section targeting” (blocking off bits of text through HTML so the ads would be more relevant). You will find the information in this book helpful if you use adsense to earn extra money. Just to let you know a while back I spent 25 bucks on a forum membership to get this question answered and never received one.

LSI
This book covers what is LSI and how it will help you in the search engines if you apply the methods to your writing. While the meaning of the word in technical terms might leave you saying “huh” the doing of it is not. If your articles do not have much exposure currently in the search engines, this might be the reason why. Learn to use synonyms and related keywords correctly to boost the oomph of your article and get more readers.

SEO
If writing for profit is what you do then you must feast your eyes on this. This book explains the three major keys that will determine how well you rank in the search engines. After all, if no one reads your article you will never make any money. The book goes into detail on how to improve your chances of getting your articles indexed high by the search engines.


Trouble shooting
Ditto...

Here's my review folks -

I like what Howard and Jason have done with their Infobarrel guide - I like what the guide features, and I also like what the guide does *not* feature!
It does *not* feature a general overview of rehashed material leading up to an upsell to another product, which seems to be the frustrating way a lot of guides go these days!

No, what they have written is a full and detailed guide on how to use the InfoBarrel site to generate profit which can come in for years to come.
As users of the site themselves, they can give personal and real examples, and there are plenty of them.

The guide also covers the areas of keyword research, how to pick subjects to write about, and how to set up your articles for best effect.

If you want 'magic push button' profits with no effort, this is not for you, but if you are prepared to make the effort, this guide will certainly give you a full plan to follow.

I purchased this WSO yesterday and just finished it off.

Here is my review:

Overall, it's an OK program (5/10). While there are a few nuggets of wisdom in there, you have to read through pages (upon pages) of repetitive and poorly written filler content.

For example, they cite no less than 5 times in the first 10 pages that the customer service for Infobarrel is great. That's nice...but who really cares?

Also, the program doesn't have ANY step by step structure at all. The "blueprint" is merely a reading list of materials to look over.

This program is so dense and poorly written that it's nearly unusable. I emailed the customer service for a refund and my message was completely ignored. I sent a dispute to paypal to get my money back.

Save your money folks!

Thank you for your honest review.

I have gutted out 3 of my email accounts and have not found a single email from you. Those who have purchased this course know that we really strive to respond to each and every email in a fast and efficient manner. Rather than contact me on Warrior Forum, or any of the many places that we make available in our course, I didn't hear about your inability to contact me until a dispute was filed with Paypal.

"For example, they cite no less than 5 times in the first 10 pages that the customer service for Infobarrel is great. That's nice...but who really cares?"


Yes, we did speak very highly of the platform in terms of customer service, however, the way in which you worded this is a bit unfair. If we were to expect people to follow our guidance and research, we felt VERY strongly that we had to go on to make a very compelling case for Info Barrel, the platform. We didn't JUST highlight their customer service, but, rather, addressed many elements of their offerings and functionality and how they compare to much higher ranked websites in the Web 2.0 industry. This extra effort, we felt, was entirely necessary if we were to expect others to invest a significant amount of time in Info Barrel.

To you, this information may be worthless, and I completely understand. We did feel a VERY strong obligation to our customers to provide this detailed background information, long before we even got into specific strategies. Yes, at 120+ pages alone, our main book is a bit intimidating and does contain alot of WORDS, however, it is just one of 6 books (9 total files).

We have written thousands upon thousands of words both in our course, and on this thread. It is clear that we are going to great lengths to do right by our customers. If suggestions for improvements have been made, we have quickly implemented them in order to help evolve this course into an even greater product.

You are entitled to review the course in whatever manner you deem fit, however, since this was written on our thread, I do feel the need to address these issues. Unfortunately, we are left with a variety of criticisms with very little recommendations or suggestions to improve the product to better meet the needs of our customers.

I just wanted to reply to this as I felt the review was unfairly harsh. I truly see tons of benefit in this e-course and I have personally had great success implementing the strategies I found in it. If there is any repetition in the book it is only mean to stress the importance of the valuable content provided for the reader and serves as a reminder during the reading of the course!

I think that it's great that the authors tout the customer service at InfoBarrel and there are a lot of people who care... it IS calle InfoBarrel Success! I know that it does not apply to every reader that purchases this e-course, but they address that issue in the introduction to the course. I, for one, appreciate the fact that they found a great place to write content and they want to share that success with the rest of the world by showing everyone what a great place IB is to write!

I read the book when I was just starting out as an online writer and I didn't have any clue what SEO and keyword research meant and I found this course to be an awesome tool to help me in that process. It not only told me what I needed to do but also how to go about it and I felt like it detailed the information in the correct order. As far as being a "step-by-step" manual, I guess that's subjective, but I felt it was reader-friendly and easy to follow along.

As far as this goes:
"This program is so dense and poorly written that it's nearly unusable. I emailed the customer service for a refund and my message was completely ignored. I sent a dispute to paypal to get my money back.

Save your money folks!"
That was just unfair! I certainly don't think that it was poorly written! I've come accross so much stuff on the internet that was written in such dry and technical form that I couldn't even understand it, nor did it hold my attention for more than 2 minutes. The way this e-course was written makes it an extremely easy read, I was so excited to implement it's strategies that I read it straight through, cover-to-cover! Saying that it's unusable is just preposterous! I wasn't getting any clicks or making any money at all when I first began writing and after putting to use the info I found in IB success, I'm starting to see a real difference! As for the customer service, I emailed them with a question about the product as I was having some problems and they got back to me right away! I'm sure that your issues with the customer service was not because they were ignoring you - they are really quite helpful people!

To anyone out there looking to purchase an e-book to help them understand the semantics behind SEO, keyword research and LSA/LSI, you really need to check out this product! Info Barrel Success is a very good product and worth every penny and much more!!!! The authors of this course use their own experinces to illustrate how their tools work and you can check them out for yourself!

Wow...

Cyberchica,

It is really quite an honor that you thought so highly of our course that you decided to write this. As a WSO, we knew that we walked a thin line between the 'technical nature' of this course, and the actual needs of Info Barrel writers. Where one writer may be extremely advanced in their SEO/LSI/article troubleshooting skills, my goal with writing this course was to write it at a level that "even my grandmother could understand".

I don't mean that as an insult, however, I did feel it necessary to write alot about everything regarding the background and business model of Info Barrel to basic fundamental HTML. Even as a beginner level task, it is absolutely important that new Info Barrel writers know how to do these things in order to best realize "Info Barrel" success.

The first book, I admit, is pretty basic. We did this intentionally. Fortunately, we really spent 5-6 months writing an additional 5 books that are meant to supplement and expand upon concepts founded in the first book. Altogether, before we cut out text, and changed formatting from double space to single space, we had a course that was in excess of 600 pages among all 6 books.

Based on feedback in this WSO thread, we have also expanded the course with several other documents.

I really appreciate the time you took to write that, cyberchica. I thoroughly enjoy your writing on Info Barrel, and I strongly encourage you to write me if you have any questions, or would just like to talk about the potential of your articles and how they can best be monetized.

Take care,
Howie

Here's my "good, bad, and ugly" review of this product, which I got as a review copy several weeks ago.

The good: Huge amount of really good information, and it's information almost nobody else is providing.

The bad: That information is buried in an extended conversational and often-rambling style that can make it hard to find.

The ugly: Combining these two things makes the product so unbelievably huge that you will probably never read through the whole thing.

This product honestly needs to be streamlined. Like, a lot. It's difficult to read through it all, and it takes a lot of time and effort to absorb the information in it.

But it is an absolute no-brainer for the price. Honestly, I like to read, and the style actually makes me feel like I know the author. The worst thing about this product - and really, this is the worst criticism I can make of it - is that I'll forget the details of some fantastic thing I read earlier, and then not be able to find it.

That's right. The worst thing I can say about this product is that there's too much awesome stuff in it to remember everything.

I have been trying to get through the whole thing before posting my review, but honestly, it's freakin' huge. Thus, my "ugly" comment... I kept trying to finish it so I could post the review, but there's just way too much here.

Again, it's definitely worth the money, and it's full of great information. It's one of the top three WSOs this year, in my opinion.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review this product for us, Caliban! It means alot to have an IM'er of your caliber stop by and give a review: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

In our attempt to cover EVERYTHING, we really felt it our obligation to over-deliver, rather than underdeliver. Unfortunately, some may naturally get lost in the 'wordiness', especially in the first book. With 5 more books, however, with more tangible and effective strategies that approach being very 'technical' in nature, we really believe we made up for that in, say, our Search Engine Optimization and Latent Semantic Indexing guide.

Even though we tried to cover everything, those who have emailed us, we have gone to great lengths to provide the best customer service possible. We've spent countless hours responding to emails, however, we find that few that buy actually take us up on the opportunity to tap our brains.

"Again, it's definitely worth the money, and it's full of great information. It's one of the top three WSOs this year, in my opinion"

I wish....I really really wish....that people could see what we are seeing in this Web 2.0 property. It is a very young website, however, it is growing exponentially under a very generous and transparent revenue sharing arrangement. The time couldn't be more perfect to begin writing for this website.
