You can still make money online in 2012 using the same tips and techniques, certainly. However, you can apply new strategy to be able to earn more online money in 2012 if you want to. For me, I still use the same way with Google AdSense and affiliate programs. Many successful webmasters sell their methods to other newbie people. There are others who just provide their strategies on the Internet for free. Generally speaking, the more you work online is the more knowledge you gain. No one can follow the exact same way as others do. I don’t.
I personally get rid of outdated techniques like submitting to web directories or linking with reciprocal links exchange. They are two of the best ways I used to do five years ago to get indexed on Google, Yahoo, MSN and other search engines. In 2012, I still used the old method of writing fresh content on my sites and blogs, then post them to social bookmarking sites. For this reason, every new page that I created will be indexed faster. Again, content is the king. The more traffic you get is the more money you make in 2012.
You can read and learn new tips from other gurus on the Internet. Every guru has different way to make money in 2012. Applying their techniques with yours will make you become a new guru in the future. There are some honest webmasters out there that will post their “secrets” of business practices to help new people. So, what you need is to learn from them. You can pay buy these new books. For me, I never pay for it.
One of the most important tip I can give you is the effort you put in it. Trust me. You should always work harder and try to find ways to work smarter. People can work online to earn money online in 2012, including me, why can’t you?
