So I ended up buying a domain and hosting and I also fed deeply into the guru get rich over night BS. Spent hundreds of dollars in one night on software that I thought at the time would get me rich in one night. so without really having knowledge other then little things I picked up on about marketing and SEO from various websites and here of course. obviously this was a huge failure and disappointment. so I stopped for a couple years just because I realized that I didn't know anything and I was wasting my time. I really lost hope and motivation. well a couple weeks ago I got the Business bug due to mine and my fiancés work situation. Only this time instead of wasting money on guru software I put it towards literature of all things that I need and want to know before I get started again.
This time I really want my fiancé to jump on board cause obviously two heads are better then one. she's very, very motivated at everything she puts her mind to so it just seems right. the only thing is that she's a little scared to invest her time into studying because she seen me fail at this before, which is completely understandable, but I explained to her that I didn't know what I was doing and I'm studying this time so we can do it right. My plans aren't to become a millionaire. the goal is to live comfortably on our terms and not someone else. So. last week like I said I bought literature and started studying. but in the meantime I cracked open an old website of mine and optimized it to the best of my knowledge. I started back-linking and have gotten feedback from actual people and not spam or bots. I haven't sold anything but seeing real people is already a better step for me then before. And I want to show Laura that owning your own business on line has no limits to your success. you get out what you put into it and the internet is forever. I also opened the site to help out my niece and start her a little college fund, since I don't have kids of my own and my niece is my life.
So I have a couple questions and comments
1. How often and how much should I backlink in a week?
2. Is it ok to go after high PR links as well as low ones at the same time?
3. How soon after starting back-linking will Google take notice?
4. Do any of the guru software actually work? Not that I'm taking that route again but m just curious.
5. If you don't know HTML, CCS, Etc..... Is it ok to use a site builder. They never turn out looking as good as if you knew how to.
Any feedback whether it be answering my questions or not is more then welcome. I really want this to work this time so please anything that will help is wanted. Thanks, Steve
