The Lazy Pig Ebook Review

Don't buy an ebook called The Lazy Pig. It's about 40 pages long, and the content is almost all available from reading almost any forum about affiliate marketing, Google Adsense, or any web marketing forum. And some of the advice in the ebook is just plain bad.

The Lazy Pig is also full of recommendations for products to help you get started with your "turn $1 into $85" business venture. These are almost always affiliate links which earn the author commission, which makes the recommedations suspect to begin with. And I've used some of the PPC engines recommended in The Lazy Pig, and I can honestly say I wouldn't recommend them to any webmaster I'd like to remain friends with or retain any credibility with.

I was not impressed with The Rich Jerk, but it was a better ebook than The Lazy Pig. But if you're really interested in reading an ebook or two that will help you make some money online, I'll recommend three:
  • James Martell's Affiliate Marketers Handbook
  • Aaron Wall's SEO Book
  • Planet Ocean's Unfair Advantage to Winning the Search Engine Wars

And if you want to learn how to make money using Adsense, you can find plenty of good information on any decent Adsense forum or blog. Jensense is a particularly good blog about Google Adsense.

I agree. Too late, I bought it. I tried the techniques explained in the book, which at first sight seem sensible. However of my two 10,000 click Trafficbridge campaigns which cost me about $32 in total, I have made about $0.10 back!!! And thats after experimenting with 3 different types of popular Adsense topics. I have wasted a lot of time, and money in buying the e-book, setting up the pages and campaigns, and purchasing the traffic. Very disappointing.
