I am reading: Get Rich Click: The Ultimate Guide To Making Money On The Internet!

I will go through each chapter and compile the most useful tips for you to read.
Make Money Online!
Chapter One: The Get Rich Click Mindset
Have a specific purpose and be original. People will not want to come to your website if they can read the same thing on several other websites.
Define your target audience. Are they older or younger, richer or poorer, etc.? Try to think like your customer. Who would be interested in your website? Write for your audience.
Become an expert at what you write. Find a niche and learn as much as you can about it. Once you start writing, people will look to you as the expert. They would rather buy from an expert than from someone who 'just has a website'.
Look at what other successful people do and try to follow their winning strategies.
Make your website as interactive as possible. People will want to come back if they feel like they are part of a group at your site.
Everything you need to know to make money online!
Chapter Two: E-Commerce and Reverse E-Commerce: Sell It, But It
Get the most specific and shortest domain name you can that defines your products or services.
Find other sites like yours or forums and write relevant replies with a link to your website to create high-quality links. High quality links to your website create higher rankings, which in turn create more traffic.
Master "niche marketing". Don't try to sell everything. Be the best with your own product or category.
Chapter Three: SEARCHing For The Gold
Buy domain names that are comparable to your domain name and redirect them all to your main domain website. This way, even if someone types in something similar to your website name, they will still be redirected to your website.
Use strong keywords to help the search engines find your site. Mostly use those strong keywords at the beginning of your page or article. The search engines will find them more easily.
Chapter Four: Advertising & Pay-Per-Action
Understand the difference between Pay-Per-Click and Pay-Per-Lead. Pay-Per-Clicks pay less, but you get paid for each click, whether or not they become a lead. Pay-Per-Leads only get paid if the reader becomes a lead.
Study Google Adsense and Google Adwords to find the words with the highest monthly views, highest payout and lowest competition and add those words to your website.
Think of words that relate to your website, then plug those words into Google Adwords Keyword Tool. Once you have done that, find words that are similar, but rank higher and add those to your website.
Type those keywords into your search engine and see what websites pop up. What are they doing that is successful? Try to replicate their winning strategies, but not their content.
Improve Traffic To Your Website

- Create a website for the product
- Create new information for your site about your product
- build links to and from relevant sites
- Keep your content fresh. Write regularly.
Affiliate marketers either pay-per-sale, pay-per-click or pay-per-lead. Pay-per-click will pay the least per action, but it will be the easiest to get an action from.
You can sign up for one time or lifetime commissions. If a person could renew a subscription for that product, you will earn income each time they renew. That is a lifetime commission.
Become a ClickBank affiliate. It is one of the easiest ways to make money online.

People will skip over longer domain names (or website addresses) if they see a similar one that is shorter.
Keep Your Content Fresh!
Chapter Nine: Content Is King!
Make something once, sell it a thousand times! Ebooks are great continual-income streams. You could either make your own, buy someone else's or have someone write an e-book for you. Once you have an Ebook, advertise it on your website and across the internet to get income over and over again.
Sign up for ClickBank as a seller and advertise your ebook through them. Your advertisement will show up on relevant websites and you will only have to pay when someone clicks on your advertisement.
Chapter Ten: Social Networks: The Power Of Community
Sign up with Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest and link your website to all of your social networking sites. Every time you post to your website, the post will automatically be sent to your social networking sites. More people will be able to find your website and articles through social media sites!
