  1. Arindam, you are the least boring of all the nuttie gurus I subscribe to. ;) Your information is as comprehensive as possible for a post format, which makes it a great starting point for newbies and a nice refresher course for the more experienced. Thanks for your dedication to your readers.

  2. That's a nice article. Important point is I did not get bored and I know nobody will get. Whatever you are saying about EzineArticles is absolutely right. Long back I submitted on article, but yet its pending for approval.But I like wordpress blog.

    Thanks Arindam for sharing your knowledge!!

  3. Thanks for the great article, you tell it like it is, which is great, I'm having trouble in this area myself, so thanks again.

  4. Thanks for great article. Since building a profitable site is hard to me, I use Review Site trying to make little money from some niche clickbank site. I need your honest think about this method. Thanks again

  5. Hi Arindam:

    I find the search for a profitable niche quite difficult. They say that there is always a new learning every day and I find your article very interesting and illustrative, no matter the size. You wrote details I didn't know at all. I think I am going to print it out and read it several times. Some great conclusion I'll try to get from it.
    Thanks.

  6. Mr. Nuttie Guru, actually you know what, you are probably the best blogger for newbies because your writing is to the point and not confusing at all...Thank you.

  7. Arindam this was easily one of the best and well explained articles I have read for some time. Its probably because this is the first time for me to read your Blog. I believe after reading your post the only thing I was doing 100% correctly was reading your post. We are always told to find a niche and advertise in it and while I find a great Niche I would always be getting poor results. Any wonder! I was eating from the middle out attacking the main position instead of from the side in a sub niche. Spend a lot of time writing articles posting them everywhere Heck I even use Word Press..lol. It sounds so obvious when it is pointed out to you the reason you keep choking is because your trying to swallow the whole cow with one gulp instead of a bite at a time. I will certainly be making some big changes after reading this. Thank you

    True Ray. For centuries, writers have been using tools like allegory, symbolism and figurative speech in order to get their ideas across their readers! ;)

  9. Wow! I've just bought and started implementing Article Bully. Which led me to Angela's Packets. Which led me to you.

    And you've just destoyed some of my cherished beliefs - article marketing is good; ezinearticles is better (I'm classed as an "expert" writer, whatever that means) and WP is good for niche sites as well (says Dr. Andy Williams).

    What is a poor newbie to do?

  10. Hi Bruce,

    Thanks for your comment. I have not "destroyed" anything here (goodness, I wish I could, lol), merely added my opinion. And I DO NOT teach from theory; I teach from experience. So yeah if the truth hurts it is nothing weird .. ;)

    Speaking about beliefs, a true internet marketer does not follow "beliefs", he actually rips apart those beliefs and tests them for themselves. Have you:

    1. Tested ezinearticles for yourself?

    2. Tested WordPress for yourself?

    Do they bring great results for you? If yes, you are luckier than me and can continue to do what you have been doing BUT....

    A true internet marketer also keeps up with the changes in the internet marketing circle and always tries to increase his earnings with constant testing and innovation. If u keep doing the same things you would keep getting the same results and be earning the same amount of money-no better than a day job as I see it :)

    Also, newbies are not "poor". Nothing makes you poorer than your "poor" mindset; you need to change that a bit! ;)

    Remember once upon a time I was also a "poor newbie" like you. I learnt to build HTML sites, writing articles, and now building links, mostly by myself, and also with help from some free tutorials available on the web already!

    Good luck!

  11. Hi Arindam,

    Good response, as always.

    Ezinearticles does work for me, but pretty much a trickle; maybe I don't submit enough.

    I'm going to do exactly what you suggest - experiment more.

    Changing some non-performing XsitePro sites to WP to see if anything happens; concentrating on link building for the next few months; and writing and link-promoting articles to see if that helps.

    Cheers

    Don't get hung up on your implementation vehicle and content management system.
    Just be sure you can maintain your site easily.

    What really counts is whether you can get (targetted) traffic to your site and then convert those visitors to money.

    Just do whatever it takes to get visitors (build links mainly). And then do it some more.

    You will know how your traffic is developing because you will include Google Analytics tracker code in every page you build. It's free and the reporting is great.

    I strongly endorse Arindam's advice on traffic building. Some real pearls in there.

    Keyword research is vital in SEO - but don't believe everything you read. Study your Analytics reports to see what keywords people actually used to find you. You are in for a surprise - so be prepared to think outside the box.

    Yes, you can also score useful links with "gray hat" methods such as 3-way link exchange and from blog farms - but those cost plenty of time or money and are probably better avoided by the inexperienced.

    Only when you have a decent traffic flow is it worth spending time optimising your site for conversion.

    Stay positive, set goals, focus, and ACT.
    Doesn't much matter if you get things wrong at first - you'll get better at it quickly enough.

    Steve
