So being in the blogger industry, you can’t help but scope out other blogs in your niche and see what they’re all about. Well, most of them in the affiliate marketing area suck, and here’s why.
Shoemoney A.K.A. Baldmoney
Shoemoney is marveled as one of the greatest MMO dudes/bloggers out there, and his blog has over 20,000 subscribers. Go to Shoemoney if you want to learn absolutely nothing about affiliate marketing but learn all about Jeremy’s top picks for the next UFC site. It’s also cool if you want to waste 2 minutes every Retarded T-Shirt Friday to look at Shoemoney’s ugly self wearing a t-shirt. The ultimate clan leader for all noobs, all hail Shoemoney.
John Chow A.K.A. John Chicken Chow Mein
Chow is another massive blogger and proclaimed “super affiliate”, and is another real winner if you want affiliate marketing tips. About 90% of his posts are crappy product/service reviews that are pretty much useless, and then another 8% are posts with pictures off all the egg fu young he’s eaten this past week. The remaining 2% are posts that won’t help you, making Chow’s blog virtually useless.
SuperAffiliate Mindset A.K.A. SuperAffiliate Look At Me I’m Considered a Sultan In India!
Furreal bra, nobody cares that $500 can buy you the royal suite in India, and truly nobody cares that Google sent you a mini fridge for Christmas because you were a good boy and spent $10k with them.
Go to SuperAffiliate Mindset if you want the mindset to do nothing but brag about the money you make. Wahoo you’re an affiliate marketer that has a little money, so are a lot of us but we don’t make it a point to tell everybody EVERYTHING we have and EXACTLY how much it costs. I suggest reading Amit’s blog if you really feel like just having the urge to punch somebody who is overly pompous.
Zac Johnson A.K.A Little Johnson
ZJ is the perfect example of somebody who made a little money back in the day and uses that as his platform into making all of his income via a blog. His big post was how he was a genius for making $800k profit on Myspace with Yahoo Publisher Network 3 years ago. It makes no sense to me how that qualifies him to write a “Super Affiliates Guide to PPC” when he openly admitted at Affiliate Summit earlier in the year that he really doesn’t do PPC. So basically the big secret is making some money with YPN back in the day, starting a blog, and then doing nothing but promote affiliate network referral links and make $5k a month from your blog.
NickyCakes A.K.A. My Name Is Super Gay?
The e-rivalry between Nicky and Uber is so great that it is sometimes said that they’re actually really good friends outside of their blogs. Not. Nicky and Uber should definitely just fistfight but it’d probably be hard because all of the Wickedfire sheeple that worship Nicky would revolt and come at Uber with pitchforks. Uber thinks that’s really funny and he really likes affiliate marketing. Uber also likes long walks on the beach and promoting green tea.
Notice how gay talking in the third person is? Welcome to the blog of NickyCakes, talking in the third person, bashing people, promoting Advaliant for their green tea offers and playing CoD4 seems to be Nicky’s life. My guess is that he’s on high dosages of medication and when he forgets to take them, he blogs.
UberAffiliate A.K.A. GooberAffiliate
Uber is your textbook “hasbeen” in the realm of affiliate marketing and affiliate marketing blogs. He goes with the classic “fake it til you make it” method of posting some 300k screenshots of his Azoogle account to gain subscribers, make a few good blog posts to keep them there, and then try and make his living by pitching GooberCamp to newbies. He doesn’t post as much anymore and has basically ran out of tips to post because he’s extremely outdated. “I’m totally unsubscribing” is the most common comment.
Click Consultants A.K.A. Click to be Scammed!
Click Consultants has a blog like every other one out there trying to teach affiliate marketing to newbies. He even charges for private consulting and a paid forum! Well it’s a shame he made a post with his “earnings” that was legitly proven to be fake. He never made any post in his defense and has openly admitted to another person I know of faking it. If you go through the blog, you’ll notice that every single post is common sense stuff, rendering you confused as to if he really knows anything about affiliate marketing in the first place?
Jonathan Volk A.K.A. Jokeathan Volk
Wow, another affiliate marketing blog! By the time you get to Volk, you just get completely bored. It’s information every single one of us has seen probably five thousand times, making us learn absolutely nothing from visiting his blog. He had his little earnings graph up but it looks like he took it down, I guess he finally came to his moral self and got tired of lying to everybody. I have nothing to say about Volk except ZZzzZZzzzzzzz…
Tyler Cruz A.K.A. Tyler Cruz to the Top Blogging Instead of AM!
It amazing me how many people subscribe, comment, and waste their time with blogs like these. At least the guy is honest with the fact that he doesn’t make squat with affiliate marketing, but it seems like the flood of newbies doesn’t really understand that. Cruz is one of the blogs that I never ever really have looked at, but looking over it for 5 minutes you can tell that he’s very similar to Zac Johnson, and will continue to make a few pennies repping MarketLeverage and blogging about crap that won’t make any of us any more money.
If you weren’t on here, congrats! Your blog is either so awful I’ve never even seen it, it wasn’t worth bashing, or I got too lazy and tired of writing to continue. Moral of the story, don’t waste your time with blogs people, just get out there and do it. Three cheers for linkbait!
