This thread http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...r-genuine.html , made earlier today is the inspiration for the op. Does it really matter if he is telling the truth? if you buy a WSO, from someone who actually did make a ton of money online, does that mean you will to.
If I said you can make money by building sites based on long tail searches (which I have btw) and I make a WSO telling how I did it, there is a very big chance you wont be able to make money using the same method for various reasons.
All I'm saying is this, who cares if someone is telling the truth about their earnings, or if their lying, either way it doesn't benefit you, the best thing you can do if develop your own system, not follow somebody else because they said "I made 50,000 last yr with adsense".
In other words don't be a sucka.
Edit: if you didn't catch on, this relates to the title in this sense, if Bruce Lee (assuming he was alive) taught you how to fight, you still wouldn't be able to beat him now would you, so why would you think that if some guru teaches you their method, you'll be able to recreate their success.
Man this is good stuff, I really need my own site lol. Now if you will excuse me, I have to play Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom and left 4 dead, I been in IM overload this past week, time for a vacation, ttyl.
