    Whatever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it, they will want to come back and see you do it again and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do.~ Walt Disney.

    You need to select a niche that is related to your interest or you can write about it regularly. Get a domain name related to that topic,buy web hosting and install wordpress and start posting. Now when you start getting traffic you can apply for adsense and put ads on your blog . To rank your blog you need to build backlinks,if you are focussing on a few websites then do it yourself otherwise outsource it.

    This is a simple plan on what you have to do.

    MrKads, welcome. I'd suggest that you spend a while reading here. Focus on a niche, outside IM, and apply what you learn here. Its easy to get sucked it to the IM niche reading here; learn and apply elsewhere. Thats my No 1 advice.

    Secondly, get a coach. Choose carefully though.

    Thirdly, join the War room; a huge amount of quality info in there.

      It'll take some time (getting good enough with SEO to be considered an expert), and by no means do I consider myself an expert but do have enough experience to tell you that it does take some time to create a system that works well for you as there can be many variables. Keyword analysis, competition etc., etc., and it's not just all about building backlinks as you will need your sites optimized appropriately too. This is known as on-page SEO. Best way to start would be to start searching, do lots of reading, take notes, test and also beware as there are a ton of guides for sale out there that will tell you they are the latest and greatest, so don't be fooled by the hype.

    hehehe...oh, this thread.

    Read, man. Spend the first year or two reading everything you can. Try a few strategies, try selling a few things, get good at it. Then, after you get a few thousand posts in a few different forums, you'll have built up a good enough ( hopefully ) reputation to warrant you being called a guru

    Well, we know why you're not a guru.

    My answer: don't ever try to be a guru. With the exception of HowToGurus above me here, I think of the word "guru" as a negative word and I'd never want to be called that. My goal is just to be helpful and let karma take care of me.

    But that's what makes you a guru

    I always figured that being a guru was something that others bestowed upon you--just like you cant give yourself your own nickname

    When you think about your title and how great you can be, which in turn, means that you can tell that you want to make lots of money, then you're already on the wrong track.

    The most important thing to remember is your reader and what you can do to help them. You can join the ranks of a lot of internet marketers and scam people, but you will be forever trying to get new traffic either online through the search engines, or with social media...which that will fizzle out after a while if you have sold a bunch of crap products to people that remember who you are.

    The best thing is to create a site that has integrity. Don't sell crap. And treat your readers and site visitors with respect. Don't think about the money. That will come later. Just be consistent with it and you will succeed.

    I don't care what anyone in here says. You don't need a coach. You can figure it out on your own, but it will take longer to do. Whoever says that you can't start internet marketing without knowing anything about it is wrong.

    I did, and now make a great living doing it too.

    Good Luck with your education in the internet business!!!!!! Only failure and time can teach you what you need to know! there is a secret though!!!! the law of attraction, you have to know what you are doing and hold that belief... To be an expert will take wisdom and dedication... But the only real tool there is on the internet is the knowledge that you have, we are in the information age!!!!!!!!!!

    First, don't try to become a guru, because most of them are fake and suck!

    Second...if I'm reading correctly, it sounds like you want to create websites and rank them high in the search engines to make money.

    Great, so spend time reading here on the forum and purhcase some trainings on how to build websites, create valuable content, and get sites ranked high in the search results for your target keywords.

    You then need to figure out how you want to monetize these websites. Will you be promoting affiliate products, such as Amazon? Will you monetize with adsense? cost per action offers?

    Choose a monetization method, learn how to do it...and take it from there.

    Mrkads, I can't promise you that you'll become a guru with my answer but I may be able to point you to the right direction.

    My this simple asking, you've already started your baby steps to becoming a guru in your chosen field. IMHO, it works best for me when I ask question and try to answer my own question right before others bring the answer(s) in front of me. That's what I call self-sufficiency. It's not about 'ego' or 'pride' that you don't want to be taught of. It's just that you want to feel that sense of self-satisfaction when you learn things on your own. The retention of knowledge stays much longer.

      Someone cant just teach you how to become an internet marketing GURU, you have to learn by studying the niche you want to be in, study your competitors, and take action.

    To become an internet marketing expert/guru takes time. Nobody is an expert over night. There's a research that says you need to practice a total of 10,000 hrs in order to be an expert in something. So take your time and learn what you can.

    If you want to be an internet marketing expert in the quickest way possible the best wya is to get under the wings of a mentor that give's you a lot of training
    Please do not use affiliate links again.

          I want to seo expert and rank a list of websites very high,
          That has absolutely nothing to do with being an IM Guru IMO.

          You want to be an SEO expert? or a marketing guru?

          2 completely different animals.

          You can be an SEO expert and not have a clue about marketing.

          You can be an internet marketing guru and never personally implement a lick of SEO.

    Besides what has already been stated, a very important element that most Gurus hold is that they have many deep rooted connections within their business and network. They have helped others out by the way of being an affiliate and when the time comes others have to go to bat for you also. Being a cool guy or gal and getting along with others and building relationships is what has skyrocketed many in any business. No one is going to welcome you into the club with open arms specially if they don't know you from a hole in a wall, that's why it takes time, but if you build a solid honest business and you become part of the community before expecting others to follow you then people will see how much value you bring in.

    Let's not kid ourselves, others want people that bring value into their lives. So the question you have to ask yourself is... what value can I bring to others, whether they are just starting out or deep in the game?

    Go into a small niche, conquer the niche, get customers... ask your customers if they want to know how to make money online.

    Get the customers who say "yes", then put them into your "make money" sales funnel. Get them to buy (easy), and sell more similar products to them...

    ...10 months later, offer your very first $1,000 seminar.

    These folks will at you like you're Moses.

    Effective keyword research is vital. Create quality content that targets quality keywords. Backlink content using a variety of sources including link building sites, press releases, social media, etc. Consistent effort is a must. Seek advice from a coach and mentor in your niche.
