    One of the biggest mistakes are... to buy an Domain and add after buying in the fresh domain more than 10 external links...

    I disagree.
    Most of the newbies don't have money so they don't buy ebooks.

    They have lack of knowledge of SEO so even if they make a site, most of them leave it very fast as their isn't any earnings as no SEO has been done.

    So, the biggest mistake is lack of knowledge and patience too.

    This is true so when they are looking to learn they buy bad products that has little info and is one of those magic bullet products which sounds like it will help.

    The common mistakes is they're not focusing to run one model of business and easy to give up. Internet marketing is like a forest, you can lost direction because there are so many information which can cause you overload information.

    This is very true and when you master that "skill" of knowing what and how to do it(focus only on right things), you will start to earn big, no more spending, just money coming in.

    I personally advice newbie to join up to one internet business course which already proven and stick to the method, at least for 6 month. If there is no result after 6 month, they can leave it and try another business. But if that's work, just continue it.

    This is to save their time to doing trial and error.

    Its kinda tough for me, I am trying to be an IM as well as an SEO as well as other general marketing things all in one. I basically can only focus on a certain aspect of IM at a time, and it gets really hard to find other ways to market a product. But I am patient. I think a lot of newcomers to IM want results yesterday, money three weeks before, and they believe that they can do it without reading and studying the rules, just reading about how IM works, they best ways to promote, I mean that's why we have these forums in the first place. to learn. I guess most newbies don't believe in learning from the hardened wise IM's.

    My English hasn't improved it seems.... I need to make time for more coffee methinks its true though, you really do learn a lot from forums. I owe more than half my current knowledge to forums. There are so many sites online that focus on trying to teach people IM but they forget that everyone has their own personal styles and trying to shove one specific method down someone's throat isn't going to help them either. Maybe, in some way, its not just the newbies out there trying to learn, but the people trying to teach that need to realize that focusing on one specific part of IM isn't going to help anyone. What happens if someone teaches you something and you try it, thinking it will work for you, and in the end it doesn't work out? If it's the only thing you've been taught to do you're going to end up resenting it and trying to find other ways of getting the job done.
