    clarification

    There are some sites like google junctions to earn through internet.
    some institutions are there teaching how to earn using internet and also they
    are asking to pay for that.
    my question is that those institutions are genuine or not?

    Usually your payment for their product is how they earn their money online, then they tell you to go and do the same thing to somebody else.

    There, I just saved you $20 on an ebook

    Yes. There's plenty of decent free information all over the net anyway. I very much doubt you'll find any million-dollar-making secrets in those guides.

    Too bad all of that "pie in the sky" isn't just $20.00. I've found several that were priced well over $100.00.

    Luckily I was smart enough to keep my credit card in my wallet!

    1. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
    2. Get rich quick Internet schemes died when the dot.com bubble burst(Thank God!)

    3. With a name like "Google Junction" I'm surprised that they're still in biz.

    Most of those ebooks are poorly written with horroble grammar, style etc. and look like they were written by kids in grammar school. I've gotten a few for free, and so far I have not been impressed by 99% of the ebooks available. They are usually written by one person, with no editors or publishers to ensure the quality of work.

    They often contain basic information that anyone with half a brain would know - or information that is readily found on dozens of sites on the Internet (including this one).

    Linda said it in one phrase - if it looks too good to be true, IT IS!

    People are always looking for that next article or book to help them make millions. Sure, knowledge is useful but eventually you have to actually apply it. How many times have you read an article and thought, "That's got some great advice!" and then never put that advice to work for you? I've done it.

    It's not the book or the article that's going to make you successful. It's your own dedication, proactivity, principles and work ethic.

    I'm on the wrong side of the business apparently!

    Nah Vinnie.... you are definitely on the right side of the business. I bet you can sleep at night ... snug as a bug in a rug.
