SEO Affiliate Domination – The blogging course I earned my first $300 with in 90 days. This is my bread and butter because it showed me how to generate FREE traffic.

Wealthy Affiliate – Minor leagues of authority blogging, but solid fundamentals and a very cheap starting point nonetheless. I took this course right after SEO AD and saw the difference in tactics and it helped me understand the industry. Aside from that, this course is designed for newbies and the community isn't nearly as advanced.
