On my weekend I was just speaking with one of friend regarding some common problems and issues that he faces while doing SEO. While this topic was on, he said, that he has got some 3 websites, 4 to 5 blogs and was worrying that he did not even have money to renew his own website, and I was pretty shocked, when I heard he has paid some $250 via online, where it has asked, to make money fill up the form and pay $250 dollars. He has paid it, and it seems they have sent him a Book which was talking about “how to make money online?” When I heard this I burst out of laughing saying, you should have renewed your website with that $250. His face turned Red, because he was so much fed up because of the ideas given in that book.
