Quote of the Week: Like Riding a Bicycle

Posted by Melanie Phung on Monday, December 15, 2008 at 12:59 am

Quadzilla draws an apt analogy when confronted with the question of how to succeed in search or the MMO niche, one that precisely sums up my own thinking on the matter:

ā€?How do I ride a bicycle?ā€¯

Thatā€™s what I hear when people ask me how to make money on the web or to rank in Google. The best way to learn is to get on the bike and start peddling. Youā€™ll fall at first, but eventually you should get it. I can describe the basics and warn of some pitfalls, but in the end you gotta just try it to learn how.

Don’t get me wrong — you can read, read, read everything there is about the subject, talk to the experts, take courses, read reviews of products that are supposed to help, watch videos of people diagramming the mechanics … but until you’re actually doing it, it’s all just theoretical. You don’t ride a bicycle by talking (or blogging) about it.
