Hello from Southern California
My name is Randy Kao. I live in Monterey Park, which is a city not very far from Los Angeles CA, USA.
I joined Affilorama in April of 2009. Before I had a chance to introduce myself in the Affilorama forum, I became tempted to try other courses online. So I left Affilorama and even though I did come back a few times to study certain lessons, I focused most of my energy on the other courses. While I was away from Affilorama, I was involved in the money-making niche, which, as I later discovered, is so saturated and competitive that it would take ages for an average guy like me to rank high in the search engine and start making money. I then quit that and went into micro niches putting out Adsense ads. Unfortunately, with the Google Mayday that occurred, many adsense marketers' search engine rankings plummeted significantly. That left me extremely discouraged and hopeless.
Then one night, while I was taking a leisurely stroll around 2 am near my apartment doing a thorough introspection as to what I have done wrong that caused me to be so hopeless and pessimistic, it suddenly dawned on me that there is still Affilorama providing me with hope by waiting for me to return. It made me realize that there is no short cut to success in internet marketing, especially with the ever-increasing competition among internet marketers and Google's strict rules and it's constant change of algorithm. I will hold off on being involved in the money niche.
I am glad to be back in Affilorama. I feel that this is one of the last few genuine places to be. There is so much high quality, legitimate information that one can immediately put to use to build a solid source of income.
I am glad to be a member of Affilorama and I look forward to chatting and discussing topics in the forum.
