Hello warriors

Haven't followed WF for quite a bit... Was wondering who are the people I should follow? There are so many so-called "gurus" who claim to know everything and then come up with something:

"make blog comments"
"make web2.0's"

and so on...

    No one. Follow your own intuition and common sense. The Warrior Forum has a lot of info - but most of it is agenda-driven.

    There is no such thing as an IM guru. Why? Because things change too fast. IM is more about constant learning, experimenting, and testing than it is about blindly following idiots who prescribe 'cake recipe' solutions for marketing online.

    Exactly what performance man says, what works today might not work tomorrow so don't start to copy people's advices blindly but read it and think about if it makes sense or not, and also keep the long term in mind when doing so.

      I do agree with you Nik0. Here are some big-heads who are trying to show off them as the king of universe and make others like fool, but they forgot that Today's Fool is Tomorrow's clever guy

    Well in terms of popularity/contributions I would say there is a few members that stand out. Here's a list of marketers you may learn from or their just popular:

    Mike Anthony-SEO/Blog network sepcialist
    Yukon-Adsense specialist/SEO/general information
    Paulgl-General information/Squidoo specialist
    Mike Friedman-SEO
    Godmode52-SEO
    Niko-SEO
    Wolfmii- Amazon review site


    I suppose those are some of the most known figures here, I mean I know more than all of them put together so I didn't feel right putting myself on the list. Yukon and Mike Anthony just won't stop pming me asking me for advice, finally I had to start charging, so if you need a mentor it will be 99 hr, 125 for each additional hour.

      Now that is a motley crew - imagine THAT in a photo.

      Anyway - just cause someone has lived on the Warrior forum posting all day and night for 10 years, doesn't make them gurus or experts. Some of them are just sad and lonely geeks with really greasy hair, BO, and barely make enough to make the payments on their single-wide trailers and sofas.

        True dat while some other forum members have their faces painted black and white should just be more honest and paint them green to represent the envy.

        If you see sales pitches in their signature you have to consider the source for sure.
        Thats right you go it - for sure - because considering their rep you know they are making money and making money on an internet marketing board is a sure sign that they DO KNOW what they are doing as opposed to those just angry cause they aren't.

      Personally, this isn't a rule by any means, but I feel that anyone who doesn't pimp their signature and services - i.e. they are just being helpful and aren't looking for anything in return - is the more valuable contributor.

      I've got to second Mike Friedman, as he's never failed to answer a PM, even if my questions were stupid, and got me on the right track with SEO.

      This is probably going to piss a few people off but...

      Mike Anthony- Knows all about building a network safely

      Yukon- Can't go wrong with his advice, especially regarding SILO structure

      Paulgl- Knows his stuff but seems to have a bit of a superiority complex

      Mike Friedman- See above

      Godmode52- Don't know a lot about him, tbh

      Niko- A bit too promotional for my liking

      Wolfmii- Meh, much prefer Erica Stone's stuff

      Best thing is to read what others have to say and then test it yourself.

      If I've pissed anyone off, feel free to have a go at me.

      I would go along with that list (except I'm not very familiar with Godmode52), and add yourself (nest28) and definitely backlinko.

      I don't agree with everything any one of those people say, but then who agrees with any one person all the time, about any topic? And often (usually?), those people don't agree with each other on a topic. But if you read each post with an open mind, you will often get tidbits of good information that you wouldn't have thought of yourself.

      In the end, though, you need to follow threads and figure out your own list. And no matter who you follow, of course listen to 2nd and 3rd opinions about a topic, and toss in your own experiences and common sense.

      We all need a role model sometimes, someone that sets the standard. Like if their was no Michael Jordan there may not be a Lebron James. Other times we need the advice from those that came before us so we don't make the same mistakes they did.


      It's not a bad thing to look for people to learn from, you get 5 or 10 trusted sources of information and you have yourself a 'NETWORK OF INTELLIGENCE", whatever you don't know someone in your network will.

    Follow the users that help you. That take the time to answer your questions in a helpful way.
    The forum is not really about buying WSOs. If you find a few people that give you answers and help to your own individual problems, they can be much more valuable then any WSO or guru advice.

    As for those warriors that create good info products, software or plugins, take a little time to identify the ones that have a business model similar to the one you have or want to create (Example: If you want to make money as an Amazon Affiliate, follow the ones that have successful WSO related to Amazon)

    There is too much information on this forum, not all is really quality. But if you know your own path in IM you will be able to identify the information/people/products that will actually help you.

    Many of the big "gurus" are just trolling their signature to sell their services and products. You can see them all come out of the wood work screaming blue murder if you ever mention that their services are obsolete.

    And for every "guru", there is usually one or two dishrags who follow them around cupping their genitals in hopes they can also come across like a "guru" - very entertaining.

    If you see sales pitches in their signature you have to consider the source for sure.

      Selling at an IM forums is the worse you can do indeed. :rolleyes:

      But I know where you're coming from, there are way too many wso's being sold on how to make money by people who are not able to make money besides selling their golden technique to noobs.

      People with a tiny bit of common sense would know that if a method worked that great the seller would be exploiting it hugely their selves instead of sharing it for 7 bucks.

      A good sign for me to stay away from such wso's is when they say that it can't be saturated as that's the biggest bullshit thing that exists. Everything can be saturated.

      Another thing are those coachings that come with guarantees of $5k+/month. To guarantee things you have to give away the whole concept as you get too many stupid people buying it, and if you have to give away a concept that makes $5k+month for a few hundred dollars then your insane stupid yourself.

      Would you like coaching from someone who is that stupid?

        On a more serious note. I always smile and shake my head when I see some newbie or person angry at the amount of posts "the gurus" (their title not ours) make. If they have a whole lot of posts without thanks then they are probably spammy but if they have the thanks as well theres no point . They clearly are creating value

        DO I post in part to promote my sig? LOL OF course. Its a marketing board and you think you are dissing people for marketing? :rolleyes:

        DO I waste my time posting nearly 7,000 posts over three years? Nope. I get paid very well for it (pennies?? lol...You have no idea) and its not something I can outsource to a VA like almost every thing else.

        So does Mike Anthony post with the knowledge that he will get some traffic through sigs. YESSSSSSSS. GUILTY AS CHARGED. Think what it might mean if I posted on this board a lot without a sig. Heres some possibilities (And I m not indicting anyone just talking for myself)

        1) My priorities would be messed up since of all the charities in the world I could have spent my time helping including those that help starving children, abused kids, homeless people, cancer patients, orphans, vets with disabilities, poverty in third world countries I instead chose to help as my great work of charity -

        Internet Marketers

        To me that would be a pretty messed up choice. People who want to be helped to make money online and require that the people helping them make no money are the LEAST deserving of help in my book. I'm more inclined to help them by directing them to a job at McDonald's (and with that mentality they will probably make more money working there).

        2) I would be posting for just social reasons including personal validation and possible not have a social life outside of WF along with some self esteem issues.

        So me personally on WF? I'm more suspicious of people posting a lot without a sig. I in fact always do look at people without a sig and wonder can a marketer who spends alot of time talking about marketing without using the space to market be somebody I would want to trust about it? I'd rather learn form someone engaged on the boards whose motivation is marketing related than perhaps some one just desperate for a pat on the back online. Something is off to me there on an IM board but thats just another perspective. Plus really without a sig or link to something somewhere where they are marketing something how do I even know they have any real experience and are not just blowing smoke (And alot of kids are on here doing just that)

        So yeah I make money through my sig here on WF. How dare a marketer practice what he preaches.

          Only people in the IM niche sell to IMers. There's more to making money online than the IM niche.

          I don't need any irrelevant forum backlinks so I don't have a forum sig. link to any of my sites, that & I don't need 20 people scraping my sites.

          Looking at all the IM niche habitual refund rates on this forum, makes me wonder why anyone would even consider selling a product to IMers. To me, it looks like IM product sellers are busy supplying BH forums free content/products.

          I'll stick with the non-IM evergreen traffic/niches.

            Only people with crap products deal with habitual refunds imo.

            Selling ebooks is just terrible imo, information should be shared for free and not sold as an ebook so kudos for the people sharing it on BH forums.

            Unless it's a plugin or a WP theme or some other piece of software then I understand it's a hassle for people that it gets shared but for the rest, I never read a decent wso ebook in my whole life.

            In fact when I started with SEO I had to start learning it all over as all that I learned from the ebooks was wrong in every way.

              Lol, I seriously doubt black hat forums care about the quality of a product before they steal the content/product. They wouldn't know about the content/product quality until after the content/product was stolen.

              Those folks aren't too picky who they steal from. It's sort of like the megaupload ewhores.

              I don't agree that information should always be free, If that was the case, I would be wearing Warren Buffett's shoes. I know some folks just slap crap together & call it an ebook, but I've found a few WSOs (I swear it's true, lol) that had very good info. inside the ebook. One good WSO ebook is an old WSO about public domain content, I liked the ebook & thought it was worth more money than I payed for the product, it was full of useful info that would have taken me a very long time to find online & I probably wouldn't have found all the exact info. in the ebook by searching Google for free.

              The usual tip off for an ebook scam is when they brag about money. I don't look at anything that suggest a person can/will/did make X amount of dollars.

                True, there are always some exceptions, I just talk about the majority that is being sold on the IM forums.

              AS Yukon suggested they do exist. I myself actually did read one once but goodness the ratio of bad/poor to good is just too high to be bothered with looking for another one.

              I disagree with this... I sold several WSOs in the past that were high quality software products... products that I made hundreds if not thousands of dollars with myself. I priced them very affordably, between $5-$15 and I still dealt w/ a fairly large group of refunds.

              Unfortunately the habit of buying and refunding is how many people afford their IM addiction. The majority of the people buying IM products are doing so because they have never made any money. Once you start making money you usually re-invest in whatever it is that is making you money and block everything else out. You stop looking for the next best thing.

              The people buying and refunding are bottom feeders. Desperate to find something that works and after the least bit of effort (the same amount of effort they give to everything else that has failed them) they will turn around and refund. They still stay on your list, they still open your emails, and they still buy the stuff you recommend (only to refund it).

            Well my point was not to specify you yuke but to express a logical alternate view to the usual brainless comments that somehow someone with a sig is to be discounted because they have a sig or that people who don't have one are to be more believed. This IS an IM board.So its a positively stupid set of conclusions to draw in a forum in the IM niche.

            I am not going to lie about it though - Yes if I did not have any financial payoff in participating here I would seriously question the time I spend here if I had thousands of posts and since I would have doubts about my choice to do so I would have doubts about someone else as well.

            As I said choosing to help IMers make money for free would not to me be a very sensible charitable activity to choose given all the other things in the world that need the charity more.

            Plus I stand by what I said - regardless of who objects. At the bare minimum I know that someone with a sig is capable of putting up a website,selling a product and making money online. I know absolutely nothing about the person without a sig but what they claim for themselves.

            Looking at all the IM niche habitual refund rates on this forum, makes me wonder why anyone would even consider selling a product to IMers. To me, it looks like IM product sellers are busy supplying BH forums free content/products.
            You are attempting to conflate the entire IM niche to ebooks, PDF sellers and info products touting making thousands of dollars a day with ALL Of IM. Plus goodness trying to use Google search to make a point regarding average refund rates even in that IM niche is just weak.

            My refund rate is at about 1-1.5% in my niche (SEO)and that includes idiots from time to time buying your product which you can't help. Plus as stated if my niche were different then again I would ask myself why the junk am I not pouring my time on another board more suited to the niche I AM in.

              Same here, previously I was very active at other boards and although there was no financial reason based on sales to be there it was all about learning something very specific.

              Just hanging around on forums to hang around, I don't think so. Sometimes I get bored from the forums and often I force myself to start posting just to maintain the visibility. Once people start asking questions like: do you still sell SEO, then it's time to pick up the keyboard again.

              I am not going to lie about it though - Yes if I did not have any financial payoff in participating here I would seriously question the time I spend here if I had thousands of posts and since I would have doubts about my choice to do so I would have doubts about someone else as well.

              As I said choosing to help IMers make money for free would not to me be a very sensible charitable activity to choose given all the other things in the world that need the charity more.
              Not sure what's going on with the charity talk.

              I'm on this forum because I want to be here, I learn new things (I also learn what not to do), it's not just offering up my opinions. Besides I don't mind helping others, but I'll never expose my own sites niche with an irrelevant sig. link that serves no purpose for me. I'm not a fan of self inflicted shots in the foot.

              Just because you see someone with an IM link in a sig. doesn't mean that person is making a penny online, that's just silly.

              My refund rate is at about 1-1.5% in my niche (SEO)and that includes idiots from time to time buying your product which you can't help. Plus as stated if my niche were different then again I would ask myself why the junk am I not pouring my time on another board more suited to the niche I AM in.
              I was replying to nik0 about information being free, doesn't matter If it's an ebook or a hard back book. Information comes in all shapes & forms & there's nothing wrong with turning a profit as long as a person has a right to use that info., example outside the IM niche Dover Publications is a multi-million dollar business they're in just about every major offline bookstore selling public domain content, content that is literally free If a person knows where to look. My point is, that business sells convenience, not just the content in the books (nothing wrong with that).

              Myself, I have thousands of same niche forum post, trust me, I'm active in my own niche. I'm well established on the largest same niche forum/s & have been for years. That's the joy of self promotion on same niche forums, it last for years & usually has other forum members bumping threads (auto-pilot direct traffic).

              I don't have a problem with people dropping relevant IM links on WF, heck I preach doing that same thing on same niche forums, but there's a difference between dropping a link on a useful post & spamming links (just saying).

                Only silly not to learn how to read.. or consult a dictionary if you do not know what the word "capable" means. You know full well I don't think that. My point is obvious - any site to look at beats none at all NOT that having site proves you make money online.

          DO I post in part to promote my sig? LOL OF course. Its a marketing board and you think you are dissing people for marketing? :rolleyes:

          DO I waste my time posting nearly 7,000 posts over three years? Nope. I get paid very well for it (pennies?? lol...You have no idea) and its not something I can outsource to a VA like almost every thing else.

          So does Mike Anthony post with the knowledge that he will get some traffic through sigs. YESSSSSSSS. GUILTY AS CHARGED. Think what it might mean if I posted on this board a lot without a sig. Heres some possibilities (And I m not indicting anyone just talking for myself)

          1) My priorities would be messed up since of all the charities in the world I could have spent my time helping including those that help starving children, abused kids, homeless people, cancer patients, orphans, vets with disabilities, poverty in third world countries I instead chose to help as my great work of charity -

          Internet Marketers

          To me that would be a pretty messed up choice. People who want to be helped to make money online and require that the people helping them make no money are the LEAST deserving of help in my book. I'm more inclined to help them by directing them to a job at McDonald's (and with that mentality they will probably make more money working there).

          2) I would be posting for just social reasons including personal validation and possible not have a social life outside of WF along with some self esteem issues.

          So me personally on WF? I'm more suspicious of people posting a lot without a sig. I in fact always do look at people without a sig and wonder can a marketer who spends alot of time talking about marketing without using the space to market be somebody I would want to trust about it? I'd rather learn form someone engaged on the boards whose motivation is marketing related than perhaps some one just desperate for a pat on the back online. Something is off to me there on an IM board but thats just another perspective. Plus really without a sig or link to something somewhere where they are marketing something how do I even know they have any real experience and are not just blowing smoke (And alot of kids are on here doing just that)

          So yeah I make money through my sig here on WF. How dare a marketer practice what he preaches.
          Lot's of talk there, but can you post some income screenshots resulting from your postings on the Warrior Forum. Seems I really got under your skin there Mikey.

          Love how you pathetically try and claim that someone who doesn't have advertising links in their signature must be "suspect". You don't really think anyone who reads that is buying that bullshit - do you?

          And PS - yes....I do get angry with some of the con-artists and BS artists here on the WF, because I wasted years listening to all their useless and misleading information. Leading rubes down the path with some linking scheme or software (not you am speaking of here) that ends up destroying their hard work and DREAMS.

          So yeah, I come on here for one reason and one reason only - let beginners KNOW that they can succeed, and succeed for the LONG run without a single piece of software, a manufactured link, and begged link, a bought link. They don't need anything but a good CMS, some decent plugins, and some good content. No tricks required. You don't have to be "special" and you don't have to do circle jerks with jerks to make it.

          You can make it all on your own.

          1. get hosting and domain
          2. get wordpress
          3. get writing

          You know I luv ya Mike

    Dont take me wrong guys, but to me none that i have already saw here its a GURU. At least about the threads i was reading since i am a member.
    A GURU its a person that has a deep know-how of a subject, a business, a technology, etc

    As a good rule, a GURU has at least 20 years of experience on the field, he know to answer to any of your questions related to his scope of experience, and wont fluffing around like many do around here.
    GURUs are a quite rare on nowadays but many people like to entitle almost everybody of it.
    For last but not least a GURU normally are not sharing knowledge for free... knowledge has a price, and the higher is the knowledge the higher is the price... in SEO there a few worldwide that are considered Gurus by the community, normally they are not on forums teaching newbies... what we normally watch in this forums as many others are Scammers that scam many people that only can see $$$$$$$$ , so to me they deserve to be scammed

    So a GURU wont charge you less then 5-10k / hour coaching you, and besides the money he will check your profile to se if you fit on it.

    It a bit like Harvard, you can have Cash to join... but if your curriculum its not good enough you wont be accepted.

        Okay, just clicked who GodMode52 is. Yeah, I'd put him on my list to follow. Very short and direct comments, but they're typically spot on and I have no problem with people who are straight to the point (at least there's no confusion as to where they stand on a topic).

      Thing is no one on that list claims to be a guru so you are full of hot air. I do know that some people look at my "Quan of SEO" tag line and think I am saying I am the master of SEO. Some others use Ninja and fun stuff like that but I can think of only one person who used that that actually said he had the best SEO service in the world. Besides that its not laclear that anybody even thinks that here. I ahd a post about a month back where I even admitted I had to rehaul my service infrastructure because I was not getting the results accustomed to.

      I've thought of changing the tag line rather than having to post the video from Jerry Macguire where the word Quan comes from but in the end I realized if they were so ignorant to draw conclusions based on words they don't know the meaning of then theres no reason for me to change it to suit them. Ignorant people will just find something else to ignorant about.

    If you have a signature link that means you sale to internet marketers.

    If you don't have a signature that means you make money in a different way.

    Either way as long as you give good info that provides value it really doesn't matter whether you have a sig link or not.




    As far as the haters who have not contributed at all, why the hell are you posting. Why are you worried about if someone has a high post count or if they spend a great deal of time here, that's their business. If they add value to the forum what's the problem?

    If you haven't helped people, provided at least a few helpful threads, you have no right to come here hating.

    Ex:


    http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...right-way.html

    BTW, this thread is getting way off topic, all we were suppose to do is give kudos to those that provide value to the forum, nobody said anything about Yukon,Mike A & F, or the rest of the members being guru's. I said they were known for helping other members, in my book they are the top contributors and that's what the op asked for, is it not ?

    Motivation in necessary for success but you can have all the motivation in the world but if you do not have the skills you need you are probably not going to make it. So you may be motivated here by many Senior members but that is not all!
