Is the Google Sandbox Real, or is it a Myth?

 

If you’ve been involved in internet marketing, especially affiliate marketing, you’ll likely have heard someone talking or posting about the Google Sandbox.

What is Google’s Sandbox?

I’m so glad you asked!Google's sandbox, is it a myth?

When you build a new website, one of your main objectives will be to get your site ranked in the SERPs.

(SERP is an acronym for Search Engine Results Page, and refers to the results shown when you do an internet search)

Everyone knows that a new website will not show up in these results for some time. How long it really takes will depend on a whole heap of things, from the amount of competition in your particular niche to the quality and information value of your articles and loads more.

Now if there’s one thing I’ve learnt from my time as an affiliate marketer and blogger, it’s summed up in one sentence. Believe Nothing, Trust No-one, Check Everything! (Actually, that’s three things, but you’ll get my drift) In fact, I even have a sign on the wall near my desk with the letters BTC in large, bold text.

Here’s the sign, I just snapped it with my iPad.

Having never heard of bUnited before, and being the skeptical soul I am, I assumed it was some sort of scam. Nevertheless, I thought I’d check it out.

BuilderAll Review.

What is BuilderAll?

what is builderall review is builderall a scam

Is BuilderAll worth the money, or is it just another scam?

 

Okay, let’s cut to the chase. BuilderAll is NOT a scam. BuilderAll is a product/system designed to help anyone with setting up an online business.

Legendary Marketer Club, Scam or Legit?

Legendary Marketer Review: Is This Legit, or Just Another High-Priced Scam?

duplicate dave the legendary marketer

Chances are that you’ve recently heard about the Legendary Marketer Club and you’re wanting to know whether Legendary Marketer is a genuine opportunity to make money online or another rip-off scam.

If this is the case, I don’t blame you for being a tad sceptical. I’ve looked into heaps of online money-making schemes and yes, it’s true, a huge number of them are nothing but scams designed to separate you from your hard-earned money. Some aim to do this as quickly as possible. Others will attempt to hook you into a slow drip, like the proverbial frog in hot water, until you feel you have invested so much already, you just have to keep going.

In this Legendary Marketer review, I’ll be attempting to cut through the hype and tell it like it is so you can make an informed decision about investing in David Sharpe’s newest offering. Read more

Is Hempworx a Scam, or is it a Legit MLM?

Can you Make Money Selling CBD With HempWorx?

 

I have several websites, and on one of them I promote the many benefits of Medicinal Cannabis. my daily choice hempworx - hempworx com

In particular, the main therapeutic ingredient; CBD.

I was recently contacted by another online CBD affiliate and invited to join the HempWorx program.

In this article, I’ll be sharing with you exactly what I learned, and what my take is on the HempWorx Affiliate Program.

 

So What is the HempWorx Program?

and

Can I Make Money with HempWorx?

(There’s another post here, where I discuss how you can promote CBD products as an affiliate marketer)

My Internet Journey

learn how to make a retirement income from home

I first discovered the ‘net way back in 1994. In those days, it was all dial-up connections and pages that took up to several minutes to load. Boy, we were a patient lot back then!

I guess I always knew the internet was going to become big for business, but no-one, I’m sure, could forecast the internet as we see it today. I, and most people I know, never dreamed that it would become so easy (and, some say, so hard in many ways) for ordinary folk like you and me to become online entrepreneurs and be running our own internet businesses.

Digital Altitude – Scam or Legit?

Digital Altitude; Is This a Scam or a Legit Opportunity?

This post was written on Dec 14, 2016

 

Digital Aspire Promo

 

A friend of mine was thinking of investing in Digital Altitude, and asked for my opinion. I hadn’t heard of it, so I decided to do some research.

Now, I have to be honest and say from the start, that the fact that this is a Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) scheme acted like a red flag for me, but nevertheless I agreed to review the scheme with an open mind.

I signed up for the $1.00 “free trial” so I could access the program and be able to make some informed comments. Read more

The Best Affiliate Training

What’s the Best Way to Learn Affiliate Marketing?

and Join the Digital Nomads?

In another post, I’ve written a detailed review of the Wealthy Affiliate group.

(There’s a link to that review here.)

.

Back in November 2016, I’d recently retired from my business in the transport industry, and was at a bit of a loose end. Not being the type of bloke to spend my days playing bowls or going fishing every day, (not that there’s anything wrong with that, if it’s what suits you) I decided to look into online marketing. I’ve been a writer of sorts for many years, although I’d never really taken it seriously. It was, along with music, my main creative outlet. Stories, articles, poems – I’ve been published once or twice, but never really set the world on fire. Let’s face it – I’m no Hemingway.

Make money scams are everywhere

Anyway, I researched ways to make money online, signed up for a few schemes, and got ripped off more than once! It seemed that everywhere I looked, someone was trying to separate me from my hard-earned money. Mostly promising huge returns for little effort (but at a cost, of course) while delivering very little genuine advice or guidance.

Eventually, I decided to try Affiliate Marketing, also sometimes referred to as Blog Marketing.

Domain Abuse Scam. Do Not Click This Link.

Domain Abuse Admin Scam; Don’t Get Caught!

A new (to me, at least) scam just caught my attention.

A colleague of mine recently encountered this one. Luckily he was alert enough to perform the necessary due diligence before following any instructions.

This is how it works.

Supposedly from someone called “Domain Abuse Admin”, and possibly from a domain using the name DomainCop.com (or .org, .net, etc etc), an email arrives informing the website owner that their site has been blacklisted for spamming and spreading malware.

Scams to Avoid

Internet Scams come in Many Forms.

How to earn money online without getting scammed
The Busy Bee


The first, and arguably most important, thing to stress here is the old adage: “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.” I’d elaborate on that and say almost certainly is.

Some internet scams will offer you unbelievable financial success for minimal effort. Some will attempt to trick you into downloading malicious software. Some will simply appear to be legitimate online transactions where the goods you ordered never arrive, and possibly never existed in the first place.

Don't fall for a Money Trap
Money Traps are Everywhere

 

Believe me when I say you would not be the first, nor will you be the last, to fall for a clever trick. I’ve fallen victim to a few myself over the years and I’m always on my guard whenever dealing with someone I don’t know.

I have a motto: Believe Nothing, Trust No-one, Check Everything.

Below is a list of some common scams.
