My name is and until very recently I was guilty of blindly following the advice of so-called professionals who seemed to know how to make the big money that I was missing out on.
I read all of their books and I even spent good money attending some of their seminars. I didn't see it at first, but after I began to realize that I was bleeding so much red ink thanks to bad advertising advice that didn't work as promised, I saw what was really happening...
... many of these so-called "Gurus" actually were making all of the money that they claimed, but they weren't making it selling products.
They were getting rich by convincing everyday people like you and me to click on their affiliate links and waste our money buying advertising that we really didn't need.
They were getting fat off of our money and, honestly, there weren't too many who really cared if what they recommended worked or not. They only cared about their mega affiliate income.
So the day came that I decided I was going to stop making other people rich and start investing in myself. I went to Google and typed in the phrase "free Internet marketing advice" and I hit the jackpot!
I found hundreds of articles about Internet marketing tips, trick and tactics and it didn't cost me a penny to buy any one of them. They were FREE. And that's what got me thinking..
"Why in the world would so many people spend so much time writing free articles and getting them distributed all over the Internet?"
I began to examine the articles more closely as I read them and a few interesting patterns emerged. Of course, the first pattern I noticed was that I had found all of these articles by simply searching for a specific key phrase in Google.
So I went back to Google and tried other key phrases.
