    I'm back, baby!
    After a 5 years absence from internet marketing, and ABW, I've decided to come back and do something I liked: online business.
    For many unspecified health (and motivational) reasons I left IM in 2006 and barely ever looked back. 5 years later I regret it a lot.

    And so last month I started planning a site, opened it last week and worked diligently on it since then. It's not quite ready to show to the world (even if I started some "small" ads campaigns to promote it) but it will be soon.

    Looking at the state of Internet Marketing, it doesn't seem like a whole lot has changed in 5 years, except for a lot of people who seem to want to buy the traffic instead of build it. Is that the norm now? Or is there still a place for good 'ole link building, aggressive ads campaigns and the likes?

    Also, don't worry if you don't remember me, I probably don't remember you either ;p
    The only people I seem to recall with clarity on ABW are Haiko and Geno.

    Well, hope to see y'all around!

    P.S: Fun fact, I had 387,939 unread posts when I logged back in yesterday

    Hey Fred, Welcome Back!

    I specifically remember your pic and username - always reminded my of a gargoyle on top of building looking down and protecting. Good to see you back and ready to master the universe once again.

    Traffic is the same game - SERPs first.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Thanks for the welcome back wishes, Haiko

    I'm glad to see the game hasn't changed too much, it's gonna be much easier to pickup where I left off that way. And master the universe faster, of course.

    It's amusing that you remember my username like that because I wanted to know if there was a possibility to change it without having to make another account. I'm hesitant now but, out of curiosity, if I wanted to change it, could I?

    Thanks again for the welcome and I hope to be able to contribute something eventually

    Thanks Chuck. And thanks for the link to the tax laws thing. There doesn't seem to be anything for Canada but it might come in handy anyway
