How I Learned How To Make Money On The Internet
I first began writing articles on the web as a content producer at Associated Content in 2008.
Eventually, I discovered another online writing opportunity at eHow, and it was then that I began to learn how to make money on the Internet.
Today, both of the online article opportunities that I mentioned above have experienced massive changes.
Associated Content has been bought out by Yahoo, and re-branded as the Yahoo Contributor's Network (YCN). Their writing opportunity still exists.
eHow has ended their writers compensation program, so that opportunity no longer exists. However, those of us who were successful at eHow can certainly attest to the large amounts of money we earned therein. It was truly a life changing experience.
Today I am 100% confident that earning money on the Internet is an excellent way to build wealth for the future.
I can say that because I have experienced the awesome power of passive income firsthand, and I am hooked.
In order to make money on the Internet, either here on Hubpages or with your own website, blog, or anywhere else on the web, there are many concepts you need to understand.
On this hub, I will share with you all of the free ebooks, videos and tutorial that are offered from people who are leaders when it comes to making money online.
A Word About Internet Gurus
Some of the web's biggest entrepreneurs have grown to become Internet Gurus, and I have learned a lot about how to make money on the Internet from them.
These people offer free advice because they realize that IF and when you do decide to spend money on something that may be necessary in the future, you will return to them and purchase the item, product or service through their affiliate link.
*If you do not know what an affiliate is, please watch the video to the above ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑
These people have made very lucrative professions out of affiliate marketing and reselling products and services.
However, you never have to purchase anything in order to learn, you can simply benefit from the massive amounts of valuable, free advice they dispense.
You will not learn everything in one day, simply bookmark their sites and come back to enrich your mind at your leisure. However, I do suggest that you thoroughly read all of the ebooks on the list in one sitting.
The secret to their success is they actually want you to succeed because they know that you will spread the word about them if their advice helps you to earn more. . . just as I am doing right now.

Internet Gurus to Avoid
Just as in the real world, the web is full of unscrupulous people who could really care less about whether or not you succeed. These people are solely in business to get your money.
If you come across someone who is hocking a "How to Make Money on the Internet" course or class or ebook, and they want to charge you for the advice - - without offering any real proof of their own success, you need to beware.
Now having said that, I know that many of the trusted Internet gurus offer paid products as well, but the difference is you do not have to purchase their products to still gain tons of valuable information.
Although the following video details an incident where a lady got scammed on Youtube, the same principles apply to the Internet overall.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the main concept you will have to learn if you are serious about learning how to make money on the Internet.
Google is the undisputed #1 search engine on the planet, and they offer an SEO guide for people who are just starting out.
Although much of the guide is geared toward people who have their own website or blog, most of the methods are relevant for writing good web content across the board.
The Google Search Engine Optimization Guide tells you exactly what they want you to do in order to rank well on their search engine - and this is how you will make money on the Internet.
However, the Google SEO Guide is written in a manner that assumes you already have some knowledge of the subject. So, you might still have lots of questions . . .
To get those questions answered, you should check out some of the shorter, more straight-forward hubs about SEO. You can find some of the really good ones in the Important Hub Links below.
This way, you will get the big picture layout from Google first, and then you will have access to clearly explained SEO guides from successful Hubbers.

My Ultimate Passive Income Plan

The SBI product and affiliate marketing program simply works for anyone who is interested in earning money online the good old-fashioned way (through hard work - there are no gimmicks, schemes, systems or tricks involved).
The aspect that impressed me most was the fact that even if you do not join the SBI 5 Pillar Program, or purchase the Site Build It product, you can still learn how to really make money on the Internet by reading the 100% free ebooks "Netwriting Masters Course," "Make Your Content PreSell," and "Make Your Words Sell".
