PR Update Highlights

Yesterday I mentioned that Google was doing a public PR updated and I thought it would be interesting to see how everyone fared. Here are some highlights for sites that I am involved with:

Business Logs, Fine Fools and I Like Cameras all moved up to PR 7, which makes me think that 7s are easier […]

PageRank Update Underway

A new PR update is underway by Google (via Darren). What does this mean? Well not much anymore, but it does give you an indication of how important your site is in search rankings. Remember though that Google’s internal PR is updated a month or two before the public one so you should always see […]

Diversifying Your Revenue

There has been so much talk lately (lately meaning all of 2005) on how to maximize your Adsense positioning for higher revenue and not enough talk on other ways to maximize the revenue of your sites. Too often do we find a subject for our blogs only to give up on it because the Adsense […]

Competition and Fear

I recently wrote two entries that I believe should be apply to anything you start, be it a blog, a normal website, a business or even just a book. Using Your Competition As A Means To Growth and Fear Is A Good Thing describes many of the principles and philosophy that I am starting to […]

When 85 Equals 31

My friend Scott Kidder has posted an analysis of WIN which points out a fact that I was well aware of a long time ago. WIN’s claim to having 85 blogs (or whatever number they were screaming out) is a complete fallacy. Many of those blogs sit dormant and others just have “Best of WIN” […]

Instablogs and Why I Hate Hype

I promised not talk about blog networks for some time, but again I am disappointed in some people’s reaction to what happened today and no I am not talking about WIN getting their souls sucked dry by AOL. Yesterday was supposed to be the day that the great juggernaut known as Instablogs launched. It didn’t. […]

The Quantity Experiment

When I wrote about Blog Network Revenue Models I spoke of the ability of Engadget and Gizmodo to produce over 40 entries a day. This is clearly something that distinguishes them from every other gadget site on the Web. Not only does 40 entries produce 40 potential pageviews per user it also produces 40 new […]

Memberships and Blogs

John Gruber is looking for people to become members of his site during his 2005 Membership drive along with having current members renew their memberships. If you recall, Kottke has the same model, but doesn’t have any ads on his site. The question to ask is how effective is this approach to generating revenue?

My Problem With Darren Rowse And The Holiday Season

I have a problem with Mr. Goodie Goodie Two Shoes Darren Rowse. I had on my todo list an article about preparing your site for the holiday season to followup on what I wrote about it last year, only to find out that he “saved” me the trouble of doing so by writing a killer […]

My Problem With Webby Media

Now the title might sound a little aggressive, but I am trying to look at the new Webby Media Blog Network from a non-network owner’s perspective and think that I might be able to help them out a bit by asking some questions.
