Everyone that placed a bet on when I would cave in and post before the New Year, you win! Go collect your winnings.

Well, after going slightly bonkers in the brain for the last 4 months all in an effort to make a ton of cash for Christmas, WE DID IT!

4 months of solid hard work of backlinking like mad fools on some kind of backlink inducing wonder drug paid off. We are now winding down today for a nice rest from work until the new year where it will happen all over again.

Don’t forget that if you have been working hard then a break is very important. Get back to spending time with family and friends and get some fresh air. Lift the head up and look away from the computer screen and begin to realize just what a wondeful world it is that we live in. Get out to the countryside and appreciate the simple things in life. Money can never give you that.

If your goal is to give up the day job and make money online then make it happen in 2011. You know what to do. Keyword rich content and backlinks, all the rest is just filler.

If you have not put in the work and the results have been less than exciting then we know who is to blame. This is a lonely game and it is down to our work how well we do.

New rules for money making fools.

1% of your time writing content for your sites. 99% of your time creating backlinks.

Give it a few months and see how much more money you make. I can’t tell you how well it has worked for me and my lovely Wife who I cherish more every day.

Money won’t bring you happiness but it helps you be a little less miserable.

I have some KICK ASS posts lined up for the new year (in my head), so subscribe to that feed if you have not already done so. Making sure you get some great tips by signing up to the comments feed too.

Lots of love and

Happy Christmas

Dave

  1. OK, first of all I don’t even remember how I found your site…. anyway, I found your posts very inspiring nonetheless. I’m also working on a site and now starting to see some traffic and some $$ 😉 as well (very little actually but you have to start somewhere. 😀 ) . I did read some of your amazon affiliate tips and ranking experiences, etc so just wanted to say thank you. Oh and a happy new year too…………….

    @Kim,

    We were talking last night about Amazon. I looked at the earnings for all sites on Amazon yesterday. It was an eye opener. Sites that I never see daily sales for in the niche still made god money. Ones I thought were losers and have not been touched had still made $500 in a few weeks. Bottom line. Make a shit load of Amazon sites, rank em, and even if they don’t make any money all year they will give you a few hundred each at Christmas.

    Have a lovely Christmas.

  9. Merry Christmas to you and your lovely wife as well.. I found your blog a couple of months ago, started putting into practice everything you preach and have been working 8 hours a day on affiliate marketing and in my 2nd month made over $500 from CJ and Amazon. Just out of curiousity how long did it take you to go to a full time income say $3000 a month, that is what I need to replace my income and quit my job, once I get off maternity leave… Thanks again for all your teachings.

    Those are results to be very proud of, well done. It took me well over a year to get to the full time earning stage, if not a fair bit more. I wasted 7 or 8 months doing stuff all wrong. You can prob get there in 3 months if you carry on like you are.

    Happy Chrimbo

    Have a lovely break and think of us poor English folk suffering with the stupid snow and ice. That just reminded me, I saw a guy slip over on the ice today. I think he really hurt himself but I couldn’t help but chuckle because instead of using both his hand to break his fall, he was determined to hold on to his cigarette!!!!! Crazy fool. He ended up being dragged off to the nearest pub by his two mates. He was in real pain – but hey, at least his ciggie was still in tact!!!!

    @Jenny,

    Hi Jenny – It’s not a secret road map or anything like that. Dave’s blog IS the road map. Dave’s mantra is to write “Keyword rich content and backlinks”. This is all that is required. But not at the rate of two or three articles a day. We are talking at least 3,000 words a day for five days a week. And as Dave has said before, this is considered part-time.

    Dave basically motivated me to start doing the work and now I am beginning to see the rewards. The more you write, the more money you will make.

    The only service you need to join is The Keyword Academy. $33/month. While some of us use other things like Build My Rank, it is not necessary.

    Pick a product that you own and is sold on Amazon and base your website on that.

    Not sure what your history in Internet Marketing is but if you could spend a week reading Dave’s blog. Not browsing, but reading. From start to finish. During this time, think about product websites you could create.

    Just follow Dave’s advice and use The Keyword Academy’s Postrunner system for backlinks and get to work.

    That, to me, is Dave’s road map, which he gave me for free and is the reason I use his affiliate links, for the services I use, on the side bar.

  13. Merry Christmas to you both – Dave & Wifey,

    And to you & everyone who reads your blog, I’m wishing a prosperous 2011.

  17. I’m on the same page with you Dave. Keyword rich content and backlinks. I’d add keyword rich, “quality” content also. I think that’s what people and Google really want.

    As of Jan I will focus fully on 2 sites, backlinking the s*** out of them :p
    One of them is aged and makes 100 EUR/month and one is 2 months old, but started to pick-up some long tail traffic….I hope that if I work them hard as you preach I will be able to get somewhere in 3 months and to be on my way to quit in 6 months.

    Merry Christmas Dude. Sounds like a man with a plan. Just ease in to the backlinks slowly. Give it a month or so where you do a few a day and increase slowly so you get no sandbox effect, especially for the newer site.

    Then ramp it up until the site can handle as many links as you have the time to get done. Should see earnings skyrocket by the end of the year and you will have your freedom.

    I wish you a merry christmas at the end of this week!

    As for me… I’ve started outsourcing. I’m paying a highly motivated philly girl for pumping out a vast quantity of articles on a daily basis. She started with 40 per day, but she’s willing to do more in the future!

    I could never write that amount of articles for the little bit of money that she requires for monthly upkeep. It’s a win-win situation!

    Why do it all yourself, when you can outsource? It’s not like you’ll ever be able to do it cheaper and more scalable when you’d do it all by yourself!

    I’m setting up a few more Amazon sites, all of which will sell products that are much higher priced than the ones I’ve got now.

    I’m sure I will turn this into a full time income in 2011!

    I have been looking at the bestjobs.ph and onlinejobs.ph and hearing a lot about John Jonas and his membership but I really do not want to pay $97 just to join a membership site in order to find someone to employ.

    @Raj,

    Compared to adsense getting affiliate commissions is a breeze, at least for me. Good luck with it Dude.

    We put in 4 months of solid work of at least 8 hrs a day each. We only slacked off in the last week where we were totally burned out. Here is how I see it and hopefully it will inspire you and everyone else.

    If you know how to make money on the Internet (which is no mean feat), and you have the time to do it then make the most of it.

    As far as I am concerned it could all end tomorrow or at any time. Who knows when you may have to totally start over and take a totally different approach. While you can make money from what you do then go all out to make as much as you can.

    Your bestselling product could get slated in the news, Amazon may decide not to allow affiliates, adsense may close its doors. Google may totally slap every site you own.

    The Interweb might break, sites with over 1000 pages may be the only thing on page 1, etc etc.

    Get up in the morning and work like it is the last few days of the Internet. We little group of dudes here are in a very privileged position. Most people would only dream of doing what we do to earn money. Don’t waste the opportunity. We have saved enough now just from earnings this year to live for 4 or 5 years. It is something to fall back on if it all went up in smoke.

    A few years of hard work could see you buying a brand new house for cash, a boat, a shiny new sports car, giving up the day job if you hate it, caring for your family, traveling the world in style, or if you are a sad case like me then a small new tv.

    This shit is amazing, I feel totally blessed that 2 years since I turned on my laptop and tried to see how the hell to make money online I now have odd days where I earn more than the amount I ever earned in a month of shitty jobs.

    Now get writing some backlinks 😉

    Merry Christmas Raj.

    Now that should motivate you. We are all very lucky to even have a slight inkling of how to make money on the Internet, we should make the most of it.

    It’s all about perspective, and while I find myself and so many others worrying about the “what if’s” that I actually become paralyzed and sometimes forget how truly privileged we really are.

    There really is nothing like IM/SEO out there and it can create a lifestyle that others would kill for. It’s not even about the raw amounts of money that can be made, it’s about TIME and mobility that can be created and enjoyed as a result of this work.

    Thank you sir for an excellent post and motivation. You are right on the money here.

    I guess many of us know that it is all about hard work but still lack the discipline needed to make it big.

    But what you mentioned about everything going up in smoke the next day is true and can happen. Making the most of every single day is the key.

    Regarding you point on adsense, yes I am realizing this now more then ever. The daily fluctuation in earnings is like unbelievable plus you need to work equally hard as any other affiliate site. It is time to change the gear to Amazon as all the other things related to Seo remains the same.

    Dude keep up the good work and please do not think of pulling a plug on this site… I am sure you are aware that you are helping a large number of people in this group. If you believe in doing good and helping others (good karma), you really have done that job really well.

    Have a good one.

    I am actually itching to go now, a break has been just what the Doctor ordered. Although I am sifting through applicants who will write 30 build my ranks a day at the mo so that combined with our other outsourcing means no more backlink making for me!!!!!!!!!

    Woo hoo!!!!!!

    @Dave,

    I can’t say I feel the same.

    A year ago when I started I thought I would be making a lot of money right now. If I had known how much work this would be I wouldn’t have even tried…

    Anyways, knowing what I know now I am sure I can be making a lot by this time next year.

    @Josh,

    Gotta stay motivated man. If you work hard then this time next year life could be changed forever. And that work and its effects will last for years to come

    How do you find profitable products or programs on commission junction to promote?

    @Jack,

    Stick a pin in the computer 😉

    You just have to pick a niche that has a program there and give it a go. But if they sell it on Amazon then you should use them instead, they convert better.

  36. Dave, how the hell do you get away with so many links in your hubpage artices? Your (or your missus’ ) one about a SNIP SNIP SNIP has 3 amazon links, 2 to the US, one to the UK, plus you also have plenty of links to your own sites to.

    I’m intrigued 🙂

    Thanks,
    John.

    @John,

    Why do you think it is one of ours?

    But to answer the question. Hubpages allows you 2 links to a URL, and if you write a good Hub then usually you can get away with 2 aff links to 1 URL and 1 to another one, plus your own backlinks. It seems to be about the length and quality of the Hub.

    Of course, all our content ROCKS 😉

  37. Ah cool thanks for your response. Well, it was just a guess/little bit of spying that it might be yours.
