Merry Christmas

Just wanted to sneak this in before Scrivs, seeing as I live in Australia and technically we have Christmas before anyone else bar a few islands. (You New Zealanders can hush :P)
It’s been a huge year for online business, with blogs by FAR getting the most recognition in terms of the money making success they […]

As a die hard reader of Entrepreneur’s Journey, I was excited to see Yaro purchase smallbusinessbranding.com from Michael Pollock.

Buying traffic? I don’t think so.

Just thought I’d do a quick follow up to my “Buying Traffic” post for those that didn’t read my last comment.
My previous post on this topic talked about how I ventured out and purchased traffic with my measly $1.95. Oh yeah, it felt good at the time. The ability to pay something so small and […]

WIN Does Popunders

Even though I make a living by making money online I wish everyday that I could go through all my favorite sites without even having to bother with ads. I know there are ad blockers, but I figure if I am going to visit the sites it might be good of me to help them […]

Technology making it easier to blog

As this post is being typed, I am currently sitting in the back seat of a car on my way to visit some relatives in a different state. I am in the middle of nowhere (literally) and have 1XRTT connectivity via an Aircard 580 PCMIA card in my laptop.
I’m not sure about the wireless Internet […]

Lots Of Little Links Or A Couple Of Big Ones?

In his entry Designer Sex Sells better than Generic Sex, David Krug makes a case against the type of traffic that Damn I’m Cute is receiving and sees more value in sites like JOAB, Successful Blog and Sexerati. Each of these sites has a higher ranking in Technorati and therefore many more links pointing back […]

Adsense: Beginner’s First Option, Professional’s Last

I don’t have a problem with contextual ad programs like Adsense or Yahoo’s Publisher Network. The problem I have is that too many bloggers are starting to feel that these are their only options. Chitika became a big deal for many because they felt they could be making more with their site than what Adsense […]

Design and Getting Links

If you have read me for any period of time you know the value I place on quality design. I know that in many webmaster forums you will find people saying that it’s the ugly sites that get the best CTR, and this may be true. However, I have always been in the business of […]

When to Introduce Ads

You have an idea for a site that you are certain will make you lots of money so you start it up and plaster it with ads? Is that the right move or should you not start with any ads at all? I wonder how many people ask themselves this question as it is apparent […]

Niche or Sub-Niches

Today I had already planned on talking about whether it was wise to focus on a site that covers a niche or a bunch of sites that cover a lot of sub-niches. Then I happened to come across Tyme’s article yesterday on the Cookie Cutter Effect and saw even more relevance in posting this entry. […]

WordPress and Permalinks

Many of the people I see using WordPress for their blogging engine tend to create permalinks with the date being used. I don’t like this at all because what if I want to change something in the post or update it and push it back to the frontpage? To do this I have to change […]

Buying Traffic

“Buying Traffic” is a fairly new term to me. In fact it wasn’t until I came across the Awio Web services (through Jackofallblogs) that got me thinking. How do they do it? How does one buy traffic?

Chitika: Don’t Blame Them

If you keep up with the web world you should know by now the commotion that has been stirred up for people who use Chitika on their sites and all I have to say is nobody out there should really be mad at them. Why? Well because the warning signs of something shady have been […]
