Is This Guy An Internet Millionaire?

My shouts could probably be heard two streets away.

My wife, Linda, had dragged herself away from her favorite TV program, to see what all the fuss was about.

"I've just earned £0.96 on the internet" I said, unable to contain my excitement.

"£0.96" Oh My God! From the noise you were making - I thought you had become an internet millionaire!!" - she rolled her eyes and went back to the TV.

But this was the first money I had ever earned on the internet, and it made me 'feel' like a millionaire, and from that day I was hooked!


That was back in 2006 and the income was from Google Adsense.

Today my business is Sitegap.com - building and selling ready made WordPress websites, which I run part time. The business has done reasonably well over the last few years, but never well enough for me to replace my full time job as a kitchen designer.

I have now decided I would like to take my business to the next level, and after much research, have decided that WA and its community are the team to help me get there.

I also look forward to getting involved, and hopefully offer some of my knowledge to help others achieve their goals.

On a personal note, I am a husband, dad, guitar player, tea drinker, and sadly, remember cassette tapes, Space Invaders and Back to The Future. I also speak fluent lorem ipsum.

Looking forward to being part of the community!

Hello Paul,
Thanks for the follow. Kitchen design, I did some of that in a distant past life (installed some also). Can be great work but sometimes very trying. For me machine design was much better. I remember cassette tapes, 8-track and Quadraphonic Sound Systems (OOooooooo) also. Pac Man and Intellivision and Commodore 64 and more. I am getting old, sigh.
Thanks,

Ed
I better start making some money before I fall into dust and blow away in the wind!

I think the saying goes, 'Your only as old as you feel'

A friend of mine, said that was wrong, it should be ' Your only as old as the woman you feel'

Then I realized that Linda is older than me - huh

But I guess I can say I am a toy boy!!

Hi Paul, thanks for the info. Like you I have been around websites for years, with little success, apart from this one: http://www.yourhomestore.eu/ and success was through throwing money at adwords. I also have this wordpress site: http://bluesky-leisure.com/ which a couple of thieves made for me, at least I had the front door for wordpress. I am very impressed with your sitegap website, pity I did not find you last year. Why are you giving them away at $37. The green living website is very interesting, because that is my W A website interest http://environmentnewsarticles.org/ and your site could be good with it.Looking forward to collaboration with you.

Hello John
Thank your for connecting with me.

I have just had a look at your sites, and I think that 'store' type affiliate sites will struggle in the search engines unless they are backed by a lot of useful content.

I was suffering with the same problem, as I did not have a lot of content, and lost ranking for my major keyword, which is still on page two of Google.(I was at no 2 behind Flippa 12 months ago!)

I still have around 10 keywords on page one of G, and do not want to lose these so its content content content for this day forward.

That was the main reason for me joining WA, as I struggle to motivate myself to write

So I certainly wish you well here John, and would advise following all of the lessons, as like myself, you probably have picked up some 'Old School' methods that no longer work in todays SEO world.

Keep at it, and I look forward to watching your progress

Regards

Paul

Hats off to you Eric, you have done a great job, and thank you for recommending my post - it really is appreciated - thank you

Hi Paul, looks like you can bring a lot of experience to the community here. Good to see more 'husband, dad, guitar-playing tea-drinkers' here, maybe we should start an exclusive club? Craig
Reply
PaulOsborne Premium
Hello Craig.
Thanks for posting here, and yes, I am loving it here at WA, and if I can help others with my knowledge, that will just add to the experience.

There was a slight typo in my BIO, it should have read BAD guitar player, husband Dad and Guitar Player!

I am actually a Bass player, professional once, playing the holiday camps, and corporate circuit in a 9 piece classic soul band.

I must admit I do not know to much about Christian music, but I am going to shortly head over to your site to check it out.

I think that exclusive club that your thinking of setting up should have our rehearsals in the Spanish sunshine, though - bt I would probably swap the tea for a Sangria.

Thanks for connecting Craig, and wish you massive success with your sites

Regards

Paul
