Work Boxers Forum

There are a couple of quality forums on the Web that have a focus on AdSense, affiliate marketing and other means of making money onlnie, but they lack one thing. They don’t have the people who comment here commenting on them. So I decided I would put up a forum to open up the discussion […]

If you ever want to get serious about making money online from your sites, then you will probably need your own hosting. Although you can still go with Blogger, TypePad or the many other hosted alternatives, nothing compares to the power and ability to customize settings as having your own hosting account. I run one […]

Google’s New AdWords Features and Its Effect On Publishers

Web search leader Google Inc. said on Monday advertisers could now choose the Web sites that carry their ads and it was introducing animated graphical advertisements.

This can work out very well for both sides.
What this does is allow for advertisers to select sites on which they want their ads to appear. They can either enter […]

All you have to do is signup (they have a free account and a feature-rich pro […]

What Should I Write About?

I might be spreading myself thin on the blogging scene since I have been working hard on the company and other sites. That means that topics don’t come to mind as easily as they used to with this site. Therefore, I figured if you would like to hear my opinion on a topic then post […]

The Big Money Tips Project Day 14

Well I have achieved my first milestone in the Big Money Tips Project of achieving $1/day. And it definitely wasn’t because of the AdSense. Thanks to affiliate sales I have hit $1.90/day on the site and hopefully I can continue that upward trend.
The site currently is getting 100-400 pageviews a day so I have to […]

Some Advice For Dinner?

Well, Calacanis and company have reached the $1400/day plateau with AdSense so I must congratulate him on that. As any sane businessman would act, he wants to increase that. His next goal is $2000/day from AdSense. Admirable and very plausible. But then he pulls this out of his hat:

Also, we’re going to start doing Amazon… […]

Why I Value Design

I put out a call for a designer over at Whitespace to redesign Forever Geek a couple of days ago. As of this writing the site follows the exact same template that you can see here on Work Boxers (errr, well until I just did some changes about 5 minutes ago). I don’t mind the […]

High Traffic Linkers

Links and the ensuing traffic from sites like Slashdot can be quite a rush, last night they sent me 40,000 visitors in a few hours - however its worth keeping in mind that this kind of traffic doesn’t click on ads in as great a numbers as SE traffic. it has also been known to […]

I find that a big problem that many people who are trying to make money online have is that they assume that everyone else has the same habits and tendencies that they have. This couldn’t be further from the truth. For example, when I am trying to buy a book online I just go straight […]

Blogs and Competition

Not too long ago I talked about competing with Weblogs, Inc. and Gawker (forgot to mention the empire that Corante has built) has setup as well and noted that there is always room for one more blog in any market. Just because there is an Engadget and Gizmodo dominating the gadget blog scene, it doesn’t […]

Search Engine Traffic or Daily Visitors, Which Is Better?

I don’t have that large a “readership.” What I do have is a boatload of “visitors” via google. ;)
I see a big difference there and it dictates how I use my site. My readership is more important to me, but I don’t get much “ROI” from them, if you know what I mean. And that’s […]

Stat Addiction

With the recent improvements to AdSense I find myself checking the stats more and more often, which does take away from my time working on my sites. I also love to check my traffic stats to see if there are any major fluctuations occurring. I am trying my best to only check 3-5 times a […]
