What is it all about ?

Whenever you do a search in Google or Yahoo, you will see a list of sites which are all related to the keyword terms you entered in the search box. Some of the pages listed will be relevant to your query, others irrelevant.

How making money on the internet really works:

Thousands of people are currently competing against each other to be at the top of those search engine listings, also called Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs).

Why ?

You were not the only person in the world who entered that particular query (keyword) in the search box.
Depending on the nature of the keyword, there could be millions of people searching for the same keyword any given day. If your query is commercial in nature, the competition becomes more fierce. By competing for the top results in the results pages, website owners are vying for those millions of potential visitors. Once you click on one of the listings, you are now a visitor to that website and if the topic is a commercial one, you are now a potential customer.

Selling to the visitor

The website you have clicked on will probably have content relating to your query as well as links to products which might interest you. The product could be owned by the website owner, but it is also possible that the website owner does not own the product but has rights to advertise it on his site as an affiliate marketer.The purchase

If you buy the product through the affiliate link or directly from the supplier, money has been made and the circle starts again.

How ?

Is it difficult to become part of this circle and start making money on the internet yourself ?

Not at all. You don’t even need to be very techno-literate to set up your own website.

11-year olds are doing it.

All you need is access to a computer, an internet connection and a little education:

The small business owner’s dilemma

The small business owner’s dilemma 0

Many small business owners have faced this problem: They know online marketing is the future, that most transactions are made online, that the majority of their customers are online and they know that if they are going to be a profitable business long term, they have to be visible here. But it is tough. Essentially the survival and health of your business, ( and family) depends on something you know NOTHING about. It is obviously something of much stress.

Go the PPC route?

So the 1st route is pay through your ar*se for Adwords (bad idea) Some companies can make it work, some. But generally the PPC advertising route is a slow death or the long road to meagre profits for any small business. It is no surprise that Google is one of the richest corporations on the planet, far richer than many 3rd world countries with over 300 billion in revenues EVERY year. You can be damn sure that they want to keep this system in place, this means making any other method of online marketing as difficult as possible. ( cough cough SEO ).

Find a ‘respectable agency’?

The 2nd route is to to go for some kind of white label agency. Again, there are very few agencies that have a clue what they are doing when it comes to SEO in 2015. You will be told ‘ SEO is a long term thing’ 8 months into a campaign with no results. It doesn’t matter if they say they worked at Google. Do they actually have any ranking proof?

Get a Freelancer ?

Better than the 1st 2 options in some respects, yet not without its difficulties. There are many freelancers who look great and promise ‘100% white hat SEO’ yet will end up getting your web page in a Google penalty. There are many people from all around the world who are willing to work for you for very competitive rates.
Look at Freelancer.com
So ask, do they really know Google’s Terms of Service.
