    Took a lot of advice from fellow ABW members, put it into my site and I recieved a Linkshare check today for $133.32, entirely earned through SEO! First one I ever earned from SEO alone, thanks guys, hopefully this is the begining of something great!

    Well done Dak! I have a copy of the first cheque I ever received doing this kind of work framed on the wall next to my 'puter as inspiration. The cheques come a bit more regularly now but it's still nice to look back to the beginning. And the best thing about that cheque is that it came from something that I alone created and made work. It's a great feeling.

    Again, well done and I'm sure you'll do a lot more in the future.

    I did not pay for any traffic to my sites. It all came for free from the search engines.

    Paying for Traffic = Invest to make MORE money.

    Paying for Traffic = Insulation from search engine algorhythm changes.

    Also Paying for referred sales (affiliates ) = Paying for Traffic

    If it wasn't worth doing, nobody would do it.

    Welcome to the scrap yard, Dak. Get the free traffic set up right and you'll be a member of the long black sedan club in no time.

    My first three checks (all deposited on the same day--not sure which one came first) totalled about $135. Keep up the good work!

    Dak:

    The long black sedan club is not really a club.

    Just a euphamism for the top group of SEO /Affilates that can afford to do things like travel to meet up.

    Friends of ABW in Vegas 5/1/04 was an example.

    webmastersinthesun.com would be another example.
