Don't be fooled by threads that say I make xx,xxx a month with amazon/adsense

After looking at this thread http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...nse-sites.html I can see there are some truly gullible people in this world. I mean even after dozens of members said that this thread was a obvious scam there were still members posting statements like congrats , or what's the name of the company and not in a joking sarcastic way either.


Here's another thread based on lies, and once again even when there was proof people just kept on saying congrats man. http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...r-adsense.html

Nobody even noticed that when the truth came out the op disappeared. Wolf took over and that's when the thread started to be informative.

There are more but I'll stop here, now either these people leaving these comments don't read the entire thread or they are fools.


Threads that say I make thousands a month draw in the most desperate IMer's on the wf. The op can say anything and there are people that will believe it, and these same people can be found on every single thread that say I make xx,xxx a month.

Whenever I stop by one of these I make xx,xxx a month threads I see the same members asking the same questions. There is nothing new, build sites in low competition niches, what part of that don't you understand.


All the I make money from adsense/amazon threads all have the same thing in common, making a bunch of crappy niche sites that get at least 1,000 searches a month.

Formula:
low competition keyword/at least 1,000 searches a month
Amazon review template/wordpress
Adsense ctr theme/wordpress
emd
various wordpress plug-ins

There's nothing new in these type of threads, and another thing I notice every single person who has made a thread like that always vanishes. So far I haven't seen anyone make a thread stating they make a full time income online with amazon/adsense and they stick around months later.


Edit: Now you see this thread right here, yo this thread right here http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...even-more.html is where you want to gain knowledge on how to earn money, from somebody who letting you know how he's doing it from the very start. Also the op has been around for while and I can see him making a full time income and sticking around to help other months down the line.

He doesn't make any kind of crazy statements like I make 18,000, he just said I'm wake up early and work harder because he made a few sales and he wants to turn those few sales into hundreds sales.

    First let me state I agree with you, kind of funny when I read that 18k thread I shared it with my wife and the first thing she said was.. he makes 18k doing this and works?

    Keep in mind I do not make full time income, in reality I have only been doing IM since February but.. I do not do anything you listed above, I use joomla and my domain name is so far from the keywords I rank in it almost seems like a joke.

    But I can state this...
    1. I read it should take me 6 months to get my first adsense check when starting, it did take exactly 6 months.
    2. The second check may be this month, I am already over 100 but the end of month invalid click can put the payout under.. who knows it will be close but either way a second check in 2 months at worst.

    One of the things I love about IM is I am finding there is no 1 way to do things, you find what works for you and how you want to build things. I do agree completely that these overblown income threads do more damage then good because if people "think" it is that easy they are in for a rude awakening.

      You got that right. Your doing well, it took me a yr to get my first adsense check. When I first started doing IM, I made a blogger blog and put adsense on it, that's all I did for 2 months lol.

      I don't even remember how I found the warrior forum, but when I did, that's when I knew just how far off I was. I didn't know wth was anchor text,backlinks,h1 tags,meta description etc.

      Finally I hit a breakthrough with my ultrasound site and just mad 14 more like it resulting in a couple grand a month. While making that income I didn't use h1 because I still didn't know what they were, no internal linking or I might have had much better rankings, and I use crappy links.

        The only reason it didn't take me a year is I am retired so had nothing better to do with my time. I currently only know how to work with Adsense but as my traffic improves over the next few months I plan on trying to leverage that with learning CPA.

    How's your latest project going nest?

    And yea I agree - don't trust income claims (or any other type of claim for that matter) if anything at all looks suspicious. The fact that some people start a thread and then disappear doesn't really mean anything (life happens right?) - it's more to do with what's being claimed in those threads.

    I don't understand why income claims matter at all to be honest. I'd just ignore them. Say I make tons of money, like $10k a month or more... So what? That doesn't change your life in any way. I don't get it. Even copying exactly what someone else (successful) is doing doesn't guarantee success. Not even close.

    I make 90k a month. I do it by doing 10 jumping jacks, 10 squats and then I throw a penny in the air. For some reason, by the time I do my 4th set, that penny turns into 9 million pennies.

      I got to say I was skeptical at first. I didn't see how this could work but GGpaul always offers the best stuff so I jumped in.

      I'm not one to rave about products but Let me tell you that technique WORKS!. You are insane if you don't jump in on this offer. This is worth gold. GG could sell it for ten times what he is now and it would still be worth it. Get it before he wises up and raises the price. If you have been looking for the real deal people THIS IS IT. So glad I jumped in before the price went up. Buy it and you will not be sorry

      GGpaul thanks from the bottom of my heart. I haven't even tried the 12 squat technique yet but I KNOW it will be golden. I'm already killing it just with the ten squat technique (just have to make sure you didn't have a big lunch a few hours before if you know what I mean - or do it alone) . Talk about over delivering. Can't wait for your next offer. Bravo!!!

        Hey man no problem. I'm actually going to make an WSO too. I'd like you to be one of my testimonials.

        It's got several different packages. I don't know, but I did 10 push ups and somehow, Google caught that and made my website into a PR 9. Purely amazing.

      How much are you selling your product for? Do you have a hop link? I will go and purchase this right away. By the way, do you have any personal one-on-one coaching for this course? I'll purchase the upsell as well if you have it!

        Send me a PM. I have an affiliate link that will give you 20% off rather than going direct to GG plus I include a "cartwheel to Pagerank 7 - limited edition" bonus guide and my "Spin Articles with Your Body" three part video series if you use my link.

              Haha, a very funny thread with a serious message! Funny thing about that 'I make $705 per day on Amazon" thread is that the way he describes his build method is the 'traditional way' of making Amazon sites aka Jan Roos style. So the info he was giving out made sense, he didn't have to lie about his income though (jury is still out on that). Nes, glad you mentioned the Paulgg thread, I also found it very inspirational and have started on Wolfmmii's build method as well. I'm a relative newb but over the past 4 months I have built my adsense business upto $500 per month, i'll keep on growing that in the background whilst I get some Amazon sites up.

              Great thread and Great message.

              ps Mike Anthony I loved your testimonial. I can swear to God somebody actually did give that testimonial somewhere here on WF.

            Lol, what you don't know is, he marked up the price 50% just so you could get the 20% discount.

            If you want the 30% discount, just double the original price.

            The best part of the deal was the Cartwheels to Pagerank 7 guide and the Spin Articles with Your Body Video Series but does this typical Imer care about that ? No he only cares about the discount. So what if you have to have an xbox Kinect to use the body article spinning technique?

      Don't even need that, 2 seconds in photoshop and I can show you I make 10k a month + the check from google proving it.

      Though I have to admit, the $128 check coming has me far more excited

            Can't say I agree 100% Nest, but the gist of your arguments are
            spot on.

            The WF as of late is filled with crappy OP's, started by people with
            sig links and tons of WSO's. They seem to be looking for ways to
            spam without spamming. Or they look for old, dead threads related
            to their product. And I use the term "product" loosely.

            People are gullible. And even the ones who reply and don't buy,
            are just cargoing on with pat-on-the-back replies that make
            no sense if they actually read the post.

            Why would anyone share a bogus thread with their wife?
            Seriously.

              I've taken a laid back approach to IM, well actually a very lazy approach. I haven't been working as much as I should due to this incredible toothache I've had for last couple weeks. Before that I just kinda stop doing IM, in the course of the next 3 months I plan on making a big come back though. I'm able to find product based keywords with low competition and good monthly search volume easily, it only take me 5 minutes to find a keyword with 8,100 searches and no competition. I have 3 sites, going to make 2 more in next couple days and start with that.

                You bnet, Yukon and only a handful others get my humor Nest but you know what? there is not a single line (besides the squat thing) that was not inspired by a real life WSO review of some crappy IM product.

                Thats the depressing part. You don't have to just watch for the scam products and posts but the reviews have to be watched too.

                  Half the reviews are by members with less than 20 posts, aka the WSO seller themselves.The number 1 rule for most newbies should be to never buy anything online, all the info is out there for free, or on black hat world, money makers discussion . I have read plenty of WSO and never paid for one .

                  To top it off the sig. spammers will jump into the conversation & only agree with the OP (not this thread) just for the sake of getting the backlink, which adds to the confusion for unsuspecting readers.

The first couple times I saw Paulgl posts I was like I'm stay the hell away from that guy, but than I saw more post and was like this guy is cool, than he back me up in a few threads , now all I know is if somebody gotta problem with him they can take up with me now, same goes for all the senior members aka experience members aka the IM version of the expendables , that last one was directed at Mike Anthony hehe.

    Whats worse is when product creators post income from the make money online product and not income by using methods taught.

    I challenge everyone to use their brain a little bit more in these type of threads. The desperate fall for these traps and they put themselves in a bigger financial hole. Sad to see because I care but my efforts never do any good so I stopped trying to be captain save a ho.

    Good post. The worst things are those little pesky screenshots of earnings (Some of which don't even add up) - Screenshots are easy to edit and should not hold any value

    yeah dude right on for your honest and realistic thoughts on other programs out there on adsense claiming to make tons of money fast. There is so much hype out there especially on adsense income.

    People don't read on this forum which defeats the purpose of being a member, they just read the op and skip to the end. You guys better smarten up.
    That's why you have to read the entire thread, a user by the name of lady boss said this:

    'I saw that but on april 4th he posted that he was only making 700 a month from adsense and amazon then 2 weeks later he posted a screenshot from april 24th showing just under 400 a day, just seemed like a huge jump all of a sudden in 20 days to me, that's all..."

    Than she left a link showing him making a statement about his earnings just a short time prior to him making that thread, showing he was not making 700 a day but rather 700 a month.

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post6219950


    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5996320

    Now these are his own words, contradicting the I make 700 a day thread. I want on a rant where I said everything that I'm saying now and people still just kept on congratulating him.

    Why would I pay for garbage. Most of the WSOs I've read were bs. Don't buy any of them.

        I don't know, all I know is I was pissed that I stayed up until 3am reading that crap, it wasn't until page 5 or 6 when I learned it was all a lie. The unbelievable part is when people took up for him, and just kept asking how he did, what plug-ins he uses etc.

        I left a giant article in the form a post telling how mad I was and still they congratulated him, so I said what the hell, they wanna follow a liar that's on them.

        What he hoped to gain is still a mystery, maybe he planned on coming out with a WSO.

            I know me and ggpaul was talking on fb, and I told him how the op got mad once you took over the thread. You wasn't even the one who put him on blast, people asked you questions and you answered.

                That's what happens when nobody backs you up, I had steered clear of his thread because he came onto my thread about long tail post titles and told me my business model was off and that I was spending to much money on each site.

                After that i decided not to like him lol, once I finally read that thread and I saw what was going on I felt like I was in twilight zone. It's like everybody that was interest in that thread had been brain washed, you could't tell them he wasn't lying.

                If I had gotten there sooner I would have been backed you up.

      No problem, look at this. http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...adsense-2.html

      This is what he had the nerve to say to me.
      Ashera:
      A $400 investment hoping to make $2000 in a year if you're lucky? How many hours do you spend creating these 100 page sites - got to be at least 30 hours I assume, at the minimum? I value my time at a minimum of $30 per hour so to me that would only leave me with a $700 profit in a year, while taking a rather large risk.

      I mean keep doing whatever works for you, but personally I don't build a site unless I think it will make me at least $5000 profit in 6 months time.


      Can you believe that, than after I got lil angry he had the nerve to say this :


      Nest, you need to take it easy. You are so defensive against anyone who even questions your "method". I wasn't attacking you and didn't mean any harm - like I said keep doing whatever works for you. This is not "your thread". Unless you pay for a WSO or Warriors For Hire thread my opinion is still valid everywhere I choose to post it as long as I follow the rules of this forum.

      Enjoy the rest of your day.

      See how he said it's not my thread because it's not a WSO, yet he got mad at wolf for posting on his thread lol.

    Slightly off topic but if you've been reading the comments in the lance Armstrong news, you will see that he has a lot of defenders. I mean, give me a break. A guy who survives cancer does better than before cancer and beats out a field of dopers?

    If its too good to be true, it usually is. With that said, those income claims aren't impossible but very fishy. Even if it was real and he respects the forum, he should go out of his way to prove it. Not because he has to but because he respects the forum and understandable why we are skeptical.

    It constantly disappoints me how so many people seem to associate IM with get rich schemes. I don't expect to make any serious money quickly, I do expect it over time, but not overnight.

    Even those who legitimately make big money for a few months - there are no guarantees they will keep making that money. This is especially true for those who strike it lucky first.

    It seems the guys who are having the best continual success have been slowly but surely hammering away at IM for years - through many ups and downs I'm sure.

    The harder you work, the luckier you get!

    There are plenty of people who make $10k+/month with IM, well not boat loads but yeah plenty there are, however none of them would start bragging about it.

    What I also always find kind of funny are income reports. Yeah we made $20k this month but there is nothing mentioned about costs, about multiple people that it get's shared with, about tax. Reduce 5k costs for example, split it between 2 people, and how much is left? $7500,- we pay tax and we have $4000-5000/ left, still not a bad income but far from the initial 20k

    Making 5 figures/month revenue is not impossible, now lift it to 5 figures/month PROFIT, hey that's a whole different ballgame! If it was only to double the effort it would be easy but often things don't work that way.

    "Don't be fooled by threads that say I make xx,xxx a month with amazon/adsense"
    "If you see something that is too good to be true, chances are they are"
    "Delete all the email that you received and focus on one thing"

    Compare the above and below, which is more interesting?

    "I made $24,875,23 in a week without lifting a finder"
    "I got to know a Ukrainian underground hacker....."
    "The "untouchable" having secret meeting......"
    "I woke up the next morning and I can't believe my eyes my clickbank account......"

    Honestly, I spent thousands on IM products a year and a half back and all of them are junks! Sorry let me rephrase that, I'd say ALL that claim making x amount of money on their title are scams. Well, I got to respect those that come out with the scams as they are very convincing especially to the newbies.

    I only realized that when I basically has got no more money and have to sell my property to go on living. I can't remember how I end up in WF but investing $47 in WF is the single most wisest decision I've ever made in my IM career.

    Through WF I've managed to rank a few extremely competitive keyword to #1 and flip them off with good profit.

    I did not make a lot of post because I'm the quite type. The post that I made are all from purchases. Today, I think I should say something and give thanks to a few people in WF as I find that when I read their thread and their strategy, I'm very encourage during my hardest moment and the strategy did work very well.

    I read Nest28 thread on something like "long tail....." I tested it and was very successful.

    I read Yukon thread on "silo" and testing it. A few days back, I find that I'm ranking without doing a single external backlinking. Of course not the with the highly competitive keyword but with the combination of nest's "long tail" strategy and yukon's silo method even though there are a lot of tweaking to be done to improve the "pure" silo as I'm using Wordpress. Thanks you, Nest and Yukon for being so generous and willing to share your successful blueprint without any BS.

    Now, I'm trying to build more than 80 categories (which I'm building halfway now targeting thousands of keywords) on a single brandable website using Yukon's "silo" + Nest's "long tail" + my own SEO for Strategy for the highly competitive KW to achieve a so called Authority Website. Wish me luck!

    Now, What I'm trying to say here is, DO NOT fall for the "easy money" scam. There is no such thing as easy money. Be honest with yourself, if you found a way to make $700 in a day without the hardwork, will you want to show others your blue print? Do you think by lying on the beach $700 will drop from the sky? Think and you will be wiser. Don't learn the hard way like I do.
