This is the first article I got a cease and desist order for writing. I actually named Internet Gurus that are ripping people off in it originally. I had to remove their names, but the rest of the content is intact.
This might be the most important article you ever read, so I’ll jump right to the point. Stop giving your money to Internet Guru’s!!!
Every day I hear about how people have gotten ripped off by these supposed experts. So, today I’ll show you how successful they really are. On top of that I’ll show you exactly what they teach you, when you hand over a couple grand. Except I’ll teach you it for free and you won’t have to give me your email address.
Do They Really Make Money on Their Sites?
There are a bunch of ways to measure how much traffic a website gets and why, but I’ll focus on 2. Alexa.com is considered the number one way of measuring traffic online. Websitegrader.com is one of the best ways to analyze why a site is getting its traffic.
My site currently ranks in the top .4% of all sites on Earth. That is point 4 %. I’m not bragging. I’m definitely not happy with that rank and that is why I work so hard to improve the content on this site everyday. I’m just supplying you with that number for comparison reasons. I get about 1,000 hits per day. Some times more and sometimes less.
The point I’m making is if I’m not making a ton of money. And, if these guys are getting less traffic than me, they are also not getting rich from their traffic.
I am as of this article ranked as getting more traffic than every website except the top 145,032. I’m running stats on a random number of supposed experts. They actually have the major advantage of spending money for Google Ads, which I do not!
Here is How Much Traffic They Get
|Web Site Address||Alexa Traffic Rank|
Note: I was forced to remove the above names, but these are some of the people that claim they are the experts
What if They Have a High Alexa Rank?
That doesn’t guarantee they got it honestly. There are ways to trick Google. However these tricks only work temporarily. And, once Google discovers those sites that try to trick them, they are soon blacklisted.
If your site is blacklisted, it is almost impossible to ever rank well again. So, don’t try these tricks with your site!
There are many more, but the most common trick is to share links through Link Farms. These are just worthless sites that have to soul purpose of creating incoming links. Google hates Link Farms and you should never participate in them.
What Do the Gurus Teach You?
The majority of them take your money and maybe put you on a link farm, from what I’ve seen. Many others have systems that are legitimate, but only generate half decent levels of traffic. These automated websites normally are sold for thousands of dollars and generate only a few hundred per year.
Here is a video in which I teach you how to set them up for free, just like the guru’s.
If you insist on spending money for an automated system check out AutoBlogged. It is just $60 and as high quality as the $5,000 packages.
Free Advice on Making Money on the Internet
I wrote extensively on how I drive traffic to my website in the article Internet Promotion. In that article I explain what works for me after having tested pretty much every trick out there. Here is a video on driving traffic to your site as well, if you’d rather watch a video.
What if They Show Me Proof
It is very easy in this day in age to create forged bank statements. It is also very easy to fake Google Analytics charts. Don’t believe it.
Other Ways SEO Experts Scam People
Remember when I described how these guys sometimes drive traffic by tricking Google with link farms? Well, many then take those sites and sell them on website auction sites. Then an unsuspecting customer pays thousands for a high traffic site that is then blacklisted by Google!
Please Don’t Believe the Hype
I have talked to many successful people on the internet and they all agree that there is no quick way to succeed online. You need good content and need to make it easy for search engines to find you. That is basically it. There are other ways to draw additional interest to your site (as described above), but without good content your site will never make you money.
