    Years ago, super affiliates were the guys who never posted on forums, never sold any ebooks or products, never really spoke to anyone outside of their inner circles, never had a blog, never let anyone know who they were either. Suddenly, in the last year or less, there are like a million of them popping out and coming out of the woodwork claiming to be a super affiliate, or selling some piece of crap ebook to gullible webmasters on how to learn how to be one for $97, or just bragging about giant checks. Where the hell did these people come from, and since when are they really super affiliates?!
    One cannot LEARN how to be a super affiliate from an ebook or a forum or even a blog. It’s not something you can read in a book or learn from by watching TV or even attending an expensive seminar. It’s something that you can only become by doing a shitload of trial and error, over and over and over again. It’s like comparing this to being a hedge fund manager or some hot shot lawyer. Do you think they learned it from a few sources? Nope! They may have learned some stuff, but the reason they are at the level they are at right now is because it came from this one magical word, with no shortcuts or quick secret routes to, called…. EXPERIENCE. It’s not something you can learn in school, seminars, books, videos, or from friends. You can only gain it by actually trying it, and being successful, but also failing and learning from your mistakes! So why the hell are people still buying these scam artist ebooks?! I guess the greed, naive, and just plain lazy factors are things that they can’t get over.
    So a year ago, there were a very few bunch of people that were called super affiliates. But now there are tons of them. My theory behind this is pretty simple. Times change. That’s all there is to it. A year ago, is about the time when the ringtone boom started. So now you have alllllll of these guys spamming the crap out of social networks, using PPC, SEO, adware, whatever they can to make bank. And by the old and outdated standards, yes, they are considered super affiliates. The old standard was if you make at least $25k a month in affiliate revenues, then you’re considered a super affiliate. I don’t think that’s true at all anymore. Because we are an internet industry, things change and move pretty damn fast, and so should the minimum requirements or earning platforms for affiliates.
