Blogs Suck for Internet Marketing and Making Money Online

I know there are a lot of you who think that only blogs make money online or that only blogs rank well in the search engines or that you must be a blogger if you want to be a successful internet marketer. It's not entirely your fault for thinking this since most of the so-called top make money online bloggers do a very good job of feeding you this crap. However, it is absolutely NOT true and I can prove it! The fact is that bloggers suck at internet marketing and search engine optimization... Which is how you make money online!

Want to see what I am talking about? Keep reading...

The other day I was doing some searching on Google for various keyword phrases in the niches that typically fall under the "Internet Marketing" umbrella such as; work at home, make money online, home business, home based business and so on. After a few minutes of searching I started to realize that I wasn't finding very many blogs in the top ten of these popular searches.

So, I started looking a little closer at the search results and found that there really aren't very many blogs that rank in the top 10 on Google for any of the most popular internet marketing related keywords. The only exception was "make money online" (without quotes) but even the first page of search results for that term was only half full of blogs.

The results of my little experiment are below...

* Internet Marketing = 0 blogs in the top 10
* Make Money Online = 5 blogs in the top 10
* Home Business = 1 blog in the top 10
* Work at Home = 0 blogs in the top 10
* Home Based Business = 1 blog in the top 10

Total = 7 blogs out of the 50 websites listed at the top of Google for those keyword phrases.

The only one that even had a decent showing of blogs in the top 10 was Make Money Online. Now, you might be thinking that “make money online” is the most searched for keyword phrase of all of these so it's the one that you want to rank highly for with your blog anyway. Think again!

I checked each of the phrases in the Google Adwords keyword tool and the free Wordtracker keyword tool to see how many searches each of them receive. You can see what I found below. The first number is the monthly searches the keyword phrase gets according to the Google keyword tool and the second number is the daily searches it gets according to the free wordtracker tool.

* Internet Marketing = 1,000,000/month, 3412/day
* Make Money Online = 673,000/month, 956/day
* Home Business = 1,830,000/month, 1128/day
* Work at Home = 1,000,000/month, 1184/day
* Home Based Business = 673,000/month, 763/day

Now you can clearly see that of the five top keyword phrases in the internet marketing niche, make money online comes in right around the bottom. It was tied for last with home based business for monthly searches according to the Google tool and it was second to last in daily searches according to the Wordtracker tool. Home business and internet marketing were the top two respectively.

I admit this might not have been the most in-depth scientific experiment in the world but I don't think there's any doubt that it shows you definitely do not need a blog to rank well on Google or to make money online!

What do you need to rank highly in search engines and actually make money online?


You need lots of keyword anchored backlinks. These are also called "inbound links" or "inlinks" depending on who you talk to, but they are all the same thing. Getting backlinks is the most important thing for ranking highly on the search engines and making money online.

Now hopefully you know that you don't need a blog that you update five times per day just for the sake of posting on it because you heard from some A-list blogger that's how to make money online. A very select few bloggers ever make it very far by following that school of thought for making money online, but plenty of website owners do very well with their sites by ranking highly on search engines. Which would you rather be?

Why Do You Suck At Internet Marketing?

I know for a fact that at least 95% of the people who read this post are trying to make money online as an "internet marketer" but are failing miserably. Even if you are making some money, it's not nearly enough to quit your job or buy that dream house you've always wanted.

So, why do you suck at internet marketing?

Do you not have any internet marketing skills? Do you lack the resources to succeed at internet marketing? Have you just not found that perfect opportunity to make money online? Are you just plain stupid?

I will tell you right now that it's NONE of those!

The reason you suck at internet marketing and are not making any money is because you have been lied to. You have believed all the hype. You are listening to the wrong advice.

It's not your fault!

Although some of the blame does fall on you because you let yourself get suckered into thinking that all you had to do was start an MMO blog, or build a website, or sign up for some home business opportunity, or buy some product created by an internet marketing "guru" -- and you would be making money the next day, and filthy rich in a couple months.

Well, as you have obviously figured out... that doesn't happen!

Let me tell you right now that there is no big secret to internet marketing that you don't know about. Stop buying every internet marketing ebook, report, course, and tool that you find! Sure there are some tools, resources and information that are worth buying because they will help you with your internet marketing business but you really don't need every new product that comes out. Most of everything you need to become a successful internet marketer is free (or close to it).

The more stuff you buy that is supposed to be making you money, the less money you will make! All you are doing is spending your money and making some other internet marketer rich by doing this. And that is a pretty sucky way to go about internet marketing!

How do you succeed at internet marketing and make money online?

Simple... You need to find one or two good mentors and follow what they do. Find an internet marketer that really is making money online, knows what they are talking about, and are willing to freely share their strategies and knowledge. But most importantly you need to take action on the information you learn. All the internet marketing knowledge in the world won't do you any good if you don't put it to use.

I know that sounds too easy but that really is how you make money online! In the grand scheme of things internet marketing is not hard. It's actually quite simple. A little knowledge and a LOT of action will take you a long way.

Not sure where to find a good internet marketing mentor?

Here are a few that I recommend (other than myself, of course):

Grizzly Brears
Vic Franqui
Courtney Tuttle

All three of them are ranked in the top ten on Google for either Make Money Online or Internet Marketing, so you can be sure they know what they are talking about. And all of them are willing to share what they know. Take action on the information you learn from them and you will make money online. That's a promise!

Oh and in case you are wondering about me, I am ranked in the top ten of Google for Home Based Business and numerous other related keyword phrases. I will also happily share my knowledge with anyone willing to listen.

There now you have four mentors to follow and a little information about what not to do if you want to succeed at making money online. You should no longer suck at internet marketing!

Honest Income Program Review

Honest Income Program Review A few months ago I bought an ebook called the "Honest Income Program" after seeing all the great reviews people were giving about it on a forum that I moderate. I also happen to know the author of the book, Steven Wagenheim, really well from that same forum. He is a very helpful and honest guy who really does want to help people make money online whether there's anything in it for him or not. Based on those factors I decided to give his honest income program a try.

Since I have the program now I figured I would give my own Honest Income Program Review to help out anyone doing research on this product.

Now I am already a successful internet marketer and have been doing business online for quite a few years. Because of that I figured I already knew it all and that there wouldn't be anything in the honest income program that would really help me. Heck, I even told Steven that I didn't have time for anything else in my business. I let him know that I was only buying his ebook because I had been hearing so much great stuff about it and I wanted to see for myself.

Well I was definitely wrong on both accounts! There was a ton of great information in the program that has helped me make a lot more money than I was before. And I made time for it because it would have just been stupid not to.

Even if you are a complete beginner online you will make money with the honest income program as long as you follow it step-by-step. And it's incredibly easy to follow. Steven does not leave anything out. He tells you exactly what you need to do and how to do it. This is really a very simple way to make money!

No, this is not some sit-back-and-get-rich-scheme to make money. You WILL have to work but it is not necessarily hard work and the honest income program is the closest thing to a guaranteed income that I have ever seen online.

Find it Here: Honest Income Program

There are 3 business programs in this ebook and if you put all of them into practice you can easily be earning $2,000 or more per month fairly quickly.

The three businesses of the Honest Income Program are:

1) Program one is a paying online job. Actually it's a collection of paying online jobs that you can choose from or do them all. The companies will pay you to write articles for them based on hundreds of topics you can choose from. There's no selling or recruiting involved in this program at all. It's just honest work. How much money you make with program one is up to you. The more time you put into writing articles, the more money you will make. Even if you only have a couple hours per day to devote to this program you will still make about $500 per month or more.

2) Program two is an affiliate program promoting health related niche products. The program is free to join and they even help you pay for your marketing. These are in-demand niches with little competition, so sales are easier to make and advertising costs are low. You should be able to make $200 or more per month with this program without doing any work at all. The only time you ever have to spend on this program is a few hours at first getting things set up. Now that is what I call easy money!

3) Program three is a combination of an advertising system and a business opportunity. As far as I am concerned this is the best part of the Honest Income Program. The only reason it is the third program is because Steven wants to be sure you are already making a good income from the first two programs to cover the costs of program three at first and still be in profit.

If you follow the system for program three then you should be able to make over $2000 per month with this business alone by the end of year one. And it will continue to increase each month. Add that to the money you are already making from the first two programs and you will have a full-time income from your online business.

Remember that NONE of this is actually costing you anything because of the amazing system. You will be paying for all expenses out of your existing profits.

Plus, there is now an Honest Income Program Advanced that comes with the original Honest Income Program. It gives you the information and resources to make $5000 or more per month in less than a year. However, it is recommended that you do not get into the advanced version until you have done the basic Honest Income Program (explained above) for at least a year.

And that's not all! You also get some great bonus ebooks with re-branding rights and complete instructions on how to sell them plus the software you'll need to re-brand them.

You get hundreds of pages of real content for a ridiculously low price, and free updates for life!

I truly can't say enough good things about the Honest Income Program and its author Steven Wagenheim. The program is amazing and Steven is the most helpful person I have ever met in online business.

At least 5 times over the past few months I have personally told Steven that he is WAY undercharging for this ebook. I have tried to get him to raise the price for his sake but he won't do it. The Honest Income Program is worth much more than its price but Steven wants everyone to be able to afford it. He is just that good of a guy!

I definitely recommend the Honest Income Program to anyone looking to start making money on the internet or anyone who is already making money online but wants more. It's great for beginners and seasoned veterans alike.

At the very least I encourage you to read the website too see how honest Steven really is. He doesn't make outrageous claims or try to hype you up. He tells you exactly what you are getting. Actually, after going through the program myself, I can see that the income claims on his website are very low... you should easily be able to make quite a bit more than what he says if you truly follow the system.
