    Well, I have decided to let adsense do their work in their own way. I would better carry my learning campaign to the next step and learn whatever I need to learn to become successful as an affiliate and writer. To date I have been an exciting hubber who wanted to earn and learn but now I want to be a professional who knows what exactly he is doing and I think it's the right way to go. I don't want to search for jobs after my graduation and I have 3 years to prepare myself to be self employed. I don't know exactly from where to start and what to read. Till now I have read hubs by misha, sunforged, mark Knowles, Susan S, Alison Graham, TerryGl, shazwellyn, Marisa Wright, Edweirdo, Peter Hoggan, skyfire, darkside, Rebeca E and many more. I am going back to all the hubs I have read again to brush up my current knowledge first. But then what?

    I need your guideline and step by step instructions. What to learn after what? So, please give me a learning list and help me to learn suggesting reliable resources. I would love to have you as a teacher. And remember I am a quick learner and a very hard worker when demanded. I need free resources as I can't pay now. If I need any institutional courses please mention that. Mail me or post here.

    Thank You.

    Note: I am a new internet user and don't have knowledge of programming and things like these but I surely would love to learn. I only have the basic understanding of SEO.

      Read the 4-Hour Work Week By Tim Ferriss.

      ProBlogger is also helpful.

      Man, U gotta plenty of time. It's perfectly possible to build an automatic income stream in three years.

      You'll be earning thousands by the time you leave college. You sound like you are determined to achieve your goal.

      Keep us posted and good luck!

    If you want to create your own sites to do affiliate marketing, I would suggest that you become familiar with Shareasale.com, Linkshare.com, and CommissionJunction.com. These are the major networks that support most of the affiliate programs. Amazon is just one of thousands. Don't bother with the Google Affiliate Network, because that requres membership in Adsense. There are programs at ShareaSale that autoapprove everyone. So you might want to start there.

    Then learn how to use datafeeds. The free and easy way to do this is with Golden Can. Find out which merchants participate and then try to get into their programs.

    You'll need your own website to show most of these merchants, so that's a must. But know what's available and then create a site for affiliates. Don't create the site and then try to find an affiliate program. Just take one step at a time. It will feel a bit overwhelming, but that's normal. Good Luck!

    I know it sounds tired, but the best thing you can do is research.
    The Hubbers you mentioned are excellent and I have learned a lot for them myself, but there is no substitute for you own research and trial and error.
    There is a lot of SEO info out there outside Hub Pages on Google, even from Google itself.

    Don't limit yourself and read everything.
    And keep an open mind, just not so open your brain falls out...LOL

    Most information is recycled on the net. The best way of getting ahead is reading the information that nobody else is reading! For that, you need to read books and magazines in addition to what you learn on the web. smile

      I feel that's just the best way. There are so many ways to promote products in a niche and the best way to become good at it is to have a lot of experience under your belt.

      If I knew what I was doing, I would be doing it differently but until then I'll just do something.

    I think you are already on the right road, you are putting a lot of research and effort in to this, and it will pay off.  The problem with Google Adsense is a set back, but nothing more, keep buildign up that netword, maybe start a blogger blog on a niche, build your own website, and continue working hard at Hubpages.  As you grow your online presense you will improve in a million ways you never eve knew existed.

    In the future I am pretty sure Adsense will accept you, simply because you are trying to do things the right way.

    Until thrn, just keep writing, research how to write, as well as how to SEO, that way you can engage readers even more.  It will also mean you will hopefully have not only pre-existing content, but also pre existing traffic when you are finally able to put those adsense ads up.

    In the meantime you might want to explore other affiliate networks so that you can make the most of your Hubs.

    Step by Step instruction ? I'll give it a try.

    1. Select Niche/product which you feel comfortable to promote.
    2. Register domain name and get hosting from hostgator or other cheap hosts as per your budget.
    3. Install Wordpress and learn how to post and work with plugins.
    4. Install amazon product in post plugin and then use it when you promote amazon products.
    5. Use Goldencan to promote product from multiple affiliate networks.
    6. Write on article directories like hubpages to promote your other sites and also to boost your adsense.
    7. If you are focusing on Adsense then try taking few month's lessons on Thekeywordacademy to improve your adsense income.
    8. Keep writing, reading and implementing stuff from SEO and affiliate marketing.
    9. Done already ? Go to step 6 and keep working.
    10. I like number 10 but there is no step 10.

      Great job on the summary.

      I think that the OP has to accept that he might never get an adsense account. So learning to make money without it, is a great strategy.

      There is so much beyond adsense and Amazon.

    saleheensblogposted 5 years ago

    Thanks Oli and skyfire. I think I am on track. I am working hard and I hope in near future I will get adsense if I don't I will wait and try other ways you have suggested. I am currently researching for a good niche to start my blog. I am trying to increase my presence in the internet too.

    Being busy for my exams I am not writing anything now. But I am building a keyword list for further work and learning SEO related stuffs.

    I am going to start my blog on blogger.

    I have a lots of confusion like

    ~I already have a blogger account. The account was created to post the links of my hubs using "blog this" option under the share section of each hub.
    The blog url is ht tp://saleheensblog.blogspot.com/ So, my sub-domain is saleheensblog?
    ~ Can I create multiple blogs with one profile? saleheensblog is good for nothing.
    ~I can use amazon widget in blogger, right? Is it possible to monetize Blogger blogs with other affiliate networks?
    ~Will I need to update my blogs all the time? If I create 50 posts and don't update anymore what will happen?

  11. sunforged profile image69
    sunforgedposted 5 years ago

    1. yes
    2.yes you can create dozens of blogs (sub-domains) under one google account (profile)
    3.You can use amazon widgets , blogspot actually has one click amazon integration during publishing
    4. Updates - pretty yes for search purposes, a stagnant blog tends to sink in serps unless it was targeted just perfect but Not for any blogspot/google TOS rules

    ~I have started a blog on Learning and teaching English as a second language and published 3 blogs posts [each with over 400 words].
    ~I have tried to create a layout so that the blog looks like a complete website.
    ~Signed in for Chitika and inserted their ads in the blog.
    ~Applied for another affliate network [Learn a language in 10 days] from ShareASale and waiting for approval.

    Need to know:
    ~How to backlink for the blog? Will I backlink for each post or for the total blog.

      For a keyword query google rank pages based on the no of backlinks to the individual pages. So my advice is backlink to individual pages are more important than the blog.

    That's a very good reading list.  I'm not sure I can add much to what the others have said.  EXCEPT that I think you are AMAZING - you have a great goal - AND I wish you every success salenheen!

    Don't make too many blogs on the same blogger account - limit yourself to around 5 blogs - if you want more blogger blogs create a new account with a new email address

      I have three blogger accounts in use and each one hosts around 20 - 30 blogs.

      1. saleheensblog profile image61
        saleheensblogposted 5 years ago in reply to this


        how do you backlink so many blogs? I think unlike hubs blogs need lots of backlinks to rank well. Am I right?

        1. Singular Investor profile image79
          Singular Investorposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Saleheen - yes it's a nuisance getting backlinks to lots of blogs - there are services available that will do it for you (read Misha's hubs) - but if you do it yourself it requires quite  a lot of time, but hopefully your blogs will continue to make money for many years to come (that is the plan anyway)

      2. Singular Investor profile image79
        Singular Investorposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        That's just what I've been told by other bloggers - it's best not to have all your blogs related in too obvious a way especially if you are using Adsense on them all - if you have 20 or 30 on each acccount with no problem maybe I have been given the wrong advice

  15. thisisoli profile image72
    thisisoliposted 5 years ago

    You will only get blogger accounts removed if their content is spun, poor quality, or obvious spam as far as I am aware.

    For me personally, the best source of knowledge on SEO, linkbuilding, internet marketing, etc. - warriorforum.com

    tritrainposted 5 years ago

    Hub Pages is an excellent place to start learning and testing what you've learned, especially about keyword research, finding a niche, on-page SEO, and getting helpful tips.

    Warrior Forum, NamePro.com, and a few other forums are excellent resources for information on Internet and Affiliate Marketing, SEO, domains, etc.
