I am new to IM however, I do have some knowledge of it, I have not made any money as of yet and would like to use this thread to help others who are starting out like me.
I am one who appreciates all that is taught to me so as an incentive, I am willing to donate all profits after paying for my hosting fee on host gator. I will pay for any WSO's out of my own pocket as these are tools I will need anyway however, I will donate all other proceeds and I will show whatever proof is required. I have an Amazon Affiliate Store on the site along with three Click Bank affiliate programs on there as well.
So here goes...
Step 1 - I Purchased a Martial Arts Word Press blog from Verena (thank you Verena).
Step 2 - I Set up Hosting on Host Gator.
Step 3 - Added all my affiliate ID's to the MA blog.
Step 4 - I Purchased 'Rank Mover' and I am reading it and applying the techniques I am reading about suggested by a member here.
Step 5 - I purchased Affiliate Tycoon WSO. The owner was nice enough to tell me his Info didn't necessarily apply to my site, I should have asked first - Newbie mistake, he did offer suggestions though so thank you Adam!
My total cost thus far;
Host gator = $7.96 monthyly hosting fee
MA Blog = $25.00
Rank Mover WSO = $16.97
Affiliate Tycoon wso = $9.97
Total spent = $59.90
I know it's all about page rank and getting my site exposed to the search engines with Keywords and what I was told to get back links. I understand the concept of backlinks, however I am still confused about a few things...
1. When someone leaves a comment on my site, should I accept and approve the comment?
As this is really an info site with 3 high selling Click Bank products and an affiliate store from Amazon.
2. Is a backlink someone who allows you to list your url on their site and is it free and when I pay someone for backlinks is there anything I have to do?
4. Are there special Wordpress plugins that will help my rank besides the seo plugin that is already installed.
5. Is writing an artcle and submitting it to online article directories the best way to get free back links?
My site is martial arts quest dot com, together (not enough posts to put link)
As I said, I am learning and would love to help myself and others, and if it all works out we get to donate money to people who need it, pay it forward so to speak.
If I am asking too much I apologize, if I offend anyone by asking for help, I won't apologize as I was always taught to never feel bad for asking someone to help you.
If I am asking for too much and have to pay for coaching, I understand, as I said, I know many people ask the same thing, what do I do next blah, blah, blah.
I am taking action by reading and applying what I read, however, WSO's aren't always the easist techniques to apply if you don't understand them.
I am not asking anyone to do it for me as I can take all action that is suggested and required. I thought this might be a great way to learn, help others learn and donate any profits made to charity, it's called a win, win, win.
Thanks in advance for any and all comments and suggestions.
