Frustrated and Can't Make Money

9 replies
Hey Guys Im 16 years Old. And I want to Earn money like The rest of you guys. But you guys are already earning. In affiliate marketing they say i need backlinks to my site. Well this is what I don't understand.

How come sometimes in google first result it's a site that has like 50 backlinks and the second result has like 1000 backlinks? doesn't it supposed to go by number of backlinks? I don't think 50 quality backlinks can make a big difference to 800.

I want to earn money, but i don't have nobody to guide me. I created some articles on ezine and I only get like 3-6 visitors to make site that's it. Before in January i wrote like 57 articles and i got like 30 visitors to my site in total but no $$. and then like a week later by site has not even one random visitor.

I even tried twitter I have like 600 followers and often tweet about it but NO SALES.

Anyone who knows about affiliate marketing and have earn something tell me what can i do please, i really need it.

    Backlinks are not created equal, it is a case of quality over quantity. Which site is providing the backlink and how much authority (and PR) that site has. Also backlinks is not the only factor that google considers when ranking sites, even more so after the panda update. Among the known factors are:

    - domain age
    - domain name
    - content
    - internal link structure
    - bounce rate

    If you have been working on these 2 methods since January and they are not working, you need to tweak the method or try something else. Post here, your exact method you are currently using and there will be people here that will offer suggestions for tweaks or methods they use to make money.

    Its about the exact match domain names. when a site which has exact match for that domain, it can rank for that keyword even with no backlinks(sometimes), provided the competition is low. This is what happens in micro niche sites.

      i may not say that i feel your pain, but some how i understand the frustration you are going through.you think you have not been able to earn money from all your hard work, but you have gain a lot of experiences which sometimes is more valuable than some coins. concentrate more now on how to translate all that experiences to money, i think this forum will be of great help to you.

    Then think again.

    SEO is NOT primarily about "numbers of backlinks".

    It's about quality and relevance (just like most things in internet marketing).

    The link-juice your site can get from one backlink from a relevant authority site is worth about the same as the link-juice from 50,000 - 100,000 article directory backlinks, for example.

    I hear your frustration and disappointment. It isn't easy, getting started. But at least you've done some stuff, which is useful in itself, even though it didn't produce money yet. It's experience, and you can learn why it didn't work ...

    Don't rush - take your time and have a read around the forum. There's an enormous amount of information here, and some of it's very helpful.

    Meanwhile, today's lesson: SEO is about quality and relevance, not about numbers of backlinks ... you'll often see lower-page-rank pages with fewer backlinks outranking higher-page-rank pages with more backlinks. That's because of differences in quality and relevance.

    If you haven't made any money, then you are making money like most of the guys

    There are more traffic avenues than just the search engines. Get around and spread your knowledge. Help people out in forums, participate in discussions, etc...
    Give stuff away, such as an ebook to help build a list to market to.
    Create some videos and post them on youtube.
    Write "quality" articles and guides and post them in the article directories for other webmasters to use on their websites. Offer solutions in your articles. Test out different titles, etc... Research what people are looking for in articles.
    Purchase some ad space on FB.
    Swap ads with others.
    Ensure that your pages are optimized for the searches.
    There is no end to ways to generate the traffic. Make a plan and go at it.

    Good luck!
    Ken

    Vannaylove, I just wanted to jump in here and let you know just how far ahead of the game you really are. It seems like you maybe feel sort of behind since you're not exactly sure how backlinks affect SEO and since you don't have sales yet...but the truth is that for you to only be 16 years old and even know what a backlink is, much less to doing article marketing, tracking, etc. is really awesome. Hang in there! You're doing great! You're going to be so far ahead of everyone it'll be ridiculous!

    I was going to leave a long drawn out explanation...but I am going to leave a link instead...

    seomoz.org/beginners-guide-to-seo

    It is the SEO Moz Beginners Guide to SEO

    It takes you by the hand and leads you step by step on how to begin SEO....

    Use that knowledge, search for more knowledge, and sell your skills in your local area, or online. Since you like writing you can now create Ebooks, etc....

    You will also have learned a useful skill, and when your 20 you can say you have 4 or 5 years experience in SEO and become an SEO manager at some company and make 60-80k starting. (Although most companies like to see a college degree)

      Hi,

      You are only 16 year old? Really? This is a great age to start. Don't rush anything. You have to be patient in this industry. Everything is hard to learn.

      Do you any topic that you know very well? Why don't you share it in a ebook for example.

    I would say, you've done most of the negativity & background work. Now it's time to move in. Give your time to read few ebooks, be active on forums and learn few things.
