Thanks for the follow Deborah, Please don't give up on this. I know you can do it because I'm not exactly the smartest guy in the world and it took me failing a bunch of times before I figured it out. I know you can do it if you stick with it. If I can help you out in any way let me know.

I'm slowly understanding. When God wired my brain He decided it wound pick up new information slowly but retain it. Once I understand I don't forget but I understand slowly. I hope you're coming along well!

mamalama, this is in response to your comment in Rebbak's blog.

I know and understand your distraction. Believing you're in the right place is good. My concern is about your feeling of not knowing how to move forward. In internet marketing once your start you are always moving forward, there is no stopping, unless you quit. There is content to add, articles to write, keywords to research...and the list goes on in whatever category you have chosen.

Have you taken the Certification Course recommended by Carson? It's the best place to start, but there may be things you don't fully understand that are holding you back.

Solution: ask for help. Compose a blog post and ask the question. There are those who have the answer and are glad to respond. Remember in school, "the only dumb question is the one you don't ask"?

If you want to keep it private, send a private message to Kyle, Carson, or any veteran member. (Just click on "Messages" in the top task bar.) We are all here to help in any way we can.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I was doing the cert courses and became discouraged and confused at the end of level 2 when I was instructed to write an article for SA including a backlink to a site with little content. The site has as much content as the lessons have instructed to add. I've sent messages to Kyle and he hasn't responded but I haven't tried to contact Carson. As far as the community goes, I've reached out to a lot of people but It seems I find more opinion than fact or direction. I didn't expect to "get rich quick" but I also didn't expect to have to wait a year, paying monthly fees I cant afford to begin to see results. My landlord and utility company don't care that I'm trying to establish myself in an online business. I need to figure this out.

Okay, regarding cert course, level 2 SA and link. Prior to this spot in the course you chose a niche and built a website. One of the purposes of publishing an article, in this case Street Articles, is to give a backlink to your website.

Therefore, your article should be related to your niche, and in the last portion of your article you can include a link to your website. This should be done in the last 25% of your article. So in a 400 word article put it within the last 100 words.

At this point it doesn't matter how much content is in your website, just so there is enough to be informative to someone who clicks on your article link.

So let's say your niche and site is about "dog leashes". In the last of your article about secure dog leashes you may have the follow sentence:

"Above all it is important to know that the leash you chose is a strong and secure leash."

Then in the article you highlight the words "secure leash" and link it back to your site by entering the site url (www.mamalimasdogleashes.siterubix.com, for instance). or if you have a specific page for secure dog leashes the url might be www.mamalimasdogleashes.siterubix.com/best-secure-leashes.

Hope this helps...let me know

I'm not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. Its the power of God to salvation! I'm glad Jesus never called us to Bible thumping though. It creates a lot of confusion about who we really are and what we're really doing.

Hi there. It's great to know you and thanks for the warm welcome. And yes, the spill was a fluke. A reply button showed up at the bottom of this post, but this is the first post where that happened. Do you know if I can only reply to certain comments?
