I just started making money on Squidoo with a lens I expected to go nowhere.
I also started making reaonable money for a living on Kindle over the last few months,

Wha's your most surprising success when it comes to online earnings?

    Probably when I was bidding on these keywords that were extremely long tail. I had HUNDREDS of them and it took two weeks to spend about $4. But then I made a sell of the product I was promoting and made about $150. Of course, it worked so good I stopped doing it. Genius! But it really was coming in very slowly. That was my first "$100" internet day.

    Hey you said you expected your Squidoo page not to be very productive. But it turns out it started generating some dough. What did you do to it in the first place?

    Did you just submit some quality content one time, or update it with articles over time? How many words did you put on it, was it keyword optimized, etc?

    I'm assuming you're getting traffic from SEO, but I'm curious what you mean by it turned into a nice surprise. What happened and what did you do?

    My most surprising success is that the first website I ever built has actually been my most successful. I followed a certain guide and just did a bunch of work and built it step by step.

    Now, years later, I have tried at least a dozen different methods that have all failed to produce very good results. But my first dinky little website is still sitting online, making me a paycheck every month.

      Sometime when we do things blindly (just follow the guidelines) it will be successful as it should be. Along the way, when we have gain a little experience, we start to be adventurous and failing here and there. But, that's the best teacher. May be the conclusion now is to KISS (keep it simple short sweet). Follow any blue print blindly, till it work and do the time in waiting for it to be fruitful.

      Have you tried duplicating the first method you used? By the way, you're very lucky to get a winner on your first shot! Nice going. I almost did the same, only I was losing more than I was making. Still it was exciting at the time.

    My most surprising moment was when I logged in to my Azoogle account back in 2007 and noticed I had made over $200 in sales in a few hours just by answering people's questions in Yahoo Answers with my site's link in the source box. Good times.

    Well earlier this week, I found an amazing ad image after 3 weeks of testing on an already successful campaign.

    It increased my converts by 3x. Amazing. Helped the campaign crack $100 a day.

    Always be testing.

    I actually have 2 surprising moments. The first was when I finally made money online after 2 years of trying everything under the sun. I made it by writing articles for a client.

    The second was when I logged into my affiliate account and saw that I had made a sale a month ago from a traffic source I thought didn't work. That was a big stepping stone in my career. I had stopped the method because I didn't get sales from it immediately, but well, suffice it to say that I learned my lesson. You need to be patient with internet marketing. Most of the methods work, we just need to keep at it long enough for it to work.
