Remarkable 3 Social Media Sites To Use

In 2008, the buzz keyword is social media and how social media can transfer a site that brings in zero traffic to a five figure viewership in less than a month. By using social media site, you are able to develop your own community and group of friends who are there to support what you have for them, it's like a micro-blog system that allow you to keep in contact with online friends and in the mean time share with them what you have found on other interesting blogs. It come be a story, article, photo or even a video but it all shows the power of social media.

Darren Rowse posted an interesting question and it was asked by his twitter friend philbaumann: if you were permitted only 3 social sites to work with, which ones would you pick?

Personally, I have signed up for almost every new social community that had popped up on the internet but after a full tour through the community, almost three quarter of them just don't feel as good as what they have announced. The rest could be the lack of tacky media release and use of other social media community that are already established to promote their new site. Still with a list of good social sites, i have decided to choose the top three of my choice.

Social Bookmarking: I have received four figure visitors with Stumbleupon, maybe because of the information that i feed into social bookmarks, i do not received more than a thousand visitors with Digg even when i could get that with submitting my post through Stumbleupon. It was also less Tech, Politics bias social bookmarking site.

Social Networking: Call me old fashion, but i personally prefer Friendster over Facebook and mySpace for a good reason because i first started using them and do not fancy application that Facebook offer which are distracting and make me more un-productivity over time.

Social messaging: Surely it would have to be Twitter which makes it as my top Social messaging site and also a place where i can do micro blogging of what i am doing. It's really a place to interact and tell others what you are doing right at that moment.

What would you have chose if it was you? Would it be Digg or even Reddit. Is there another Social messaging site that you know beats Twitter or you disagree with me that Friendster is the best, why not share with me your top 3?

Google Ads Collaborate With The Gay Community

I was confused and amused by Google's way of accepting advertisers into their system for publishers to advertise relevant advertisements for relevant contents and keywords. The reason why i am making this post is to urge Google Adsense Team to stop having ads like this on blogs that are totally irrelevant to what my Celebrity blog is talking about.

google-adsense-gay-site


Firstly, I don't talk about gay knowledge on my celebrity blog and i do not have expertise on that. I am sure those keywords that these advertisers have are somehow related to what i was talking about on my blog which is why it appeared and it's insulting.

Secondly, I am not sure why ads like these are being promoted on blogs and my initial thought was such ads are offensive and should not be accepted by Google. Correct me if i am wrong because that was the reason why i used Adsense in the first place instead of other competitive PPC network.

Anyway if you still see these ads hanging around, I urge you to have them removed from your advertising network because they are offensive on some blogs that do not talk about it. Overall, i am just disappointed with what happened, have such ads ever appeared on your blogs before, what could happen if your kids asked about what "Gay" means?

Alexa Just Threw A Bomb On Every Site!

Alexa seems to have lost it's ability to give us accurate ranking after i notice a drop of more than 100,000 which makes my blog rank at 200,000 plus. This downward trend have been notice when i discovered my blog slowly decline due to my lack of posting over the past 2 months.

Recently I have picked up my traffic again and with my blog bash contest, the traffic i receive does not seem to be lesser than the previous time around. I was puzzled at the drop recently, nothing have been said by the Alexa Team but i will give a random list of blogs that are affected under the screwed-up Alexa Ranking from what i can remember in their previous ranking.

  1. Problogger - 3797 to 12917
  2. Shoemoney - 4937 to 19818
  3. Johnchow - 5679 to 17088
  4. Dailyblogtips - 14478 to 68649
  5. CourtneyTuttle - 21019 to 67687
  6. Yaro Starak - 19581 to 49443
  7. Andy Beard - 23961 to 90210
  8. Vandelay Design - 28119 to 130560
  9. Ian Fernando - 62915 to 146486
  10. Google Lady - 68757 to 107138

Did your blog suffer from the same results that i have given here? What is Alexa Team Doing recently, i guess they have lost their touch and i am very dissappointed, i will be using compete very soon instead of them.

YouTube Videos Are Viral And Wasted My Entire Day

youtube-additiveI was surfing the Youtube practically the whole day, it was rather viral and i have just lost my one day income. Why is there a loss in income? I could have attained maximum profit making with the number of x hours that i used to watch useless videos which i could have used to write at least a hundred pillar articles and have them compiled and sold to many other potential users who are interested in purchasing exclusive article package for a sum of money.

Forget Reel from Reality
I was practically engross with the videos that i was watching, it was all comedy videos that gave me alot of laughter and i always go for something funny even when i watch the movies! Apparently once my search for this particular man started, it did not stop me from watching one after another and only when it turned dark then did i realise i have wasted my x hours at home not doing anything productive at all!

Learning from Youtube
Although it was a waste of time viewing the list of videos that i have gone through which did not make me a single cent but i learned an important lesson which was to have random link which could expose other contents that could interconnect between one another using a particular keyword.

If you are interested in the videos i have watched, please do remember to watch it on my blog which i will add in the links and do not click further because it just gets a little too much and you might end up like me wasting my time on non-productive things.











Of course there were more, but i thought three would be enough to give you a laugh before you get back on your serious work.

Follow-up to referring your users to sign up for AdSense program changes

I am sure Google Adsense Team have gone through a number of bloggers who have shown their dismay and displeasure on the removal of the referral revenue that they could make over time. I was one of those that replied with a bold title saying Google could just retire from the scene. Now again they have reviewed and considered the feedback given by the "People" and modified their plans.

This was the email i receive a couple of days back and this was what they have to say to everyone who are still supporting Google Adsense. It sounded all the same to me like how widgetbucks tried to remove the international publisher entirely but failed, i guess this is how contextual network works for, "profit".

"Hello AdSense publisher,

We are writing to give you an important follow-up to the changes we announced earlier this month to the referrals to AdSense program. Since announcing the changes, we've received a number of responses about the program being dependent on the location of the referring publisher rather than the referred user. After carefully considering this feedback, we have decided to modify our planned changes.

Specifically, you will have the option to add a referral unit for AdSense within your account when you target any referral unit to Japan and/or any countries in North America and Latin America. To ensure payment for valid conversions, we recommend that you check the targeting settings on your current AdSense referral units.

We'd also like to let you know about upcoming changes to the referrals programs for Google Pack and Firefox:

Google Pack: Currently, you can earn up to $2 when a user downloads and runs Google Pack for the first time after being referred through your link or button. Starting the third week of February, each successful Pack referral will earn up to $1. This change will apply to all referrals for Google Pack and is independent of user location or publisher location.

Firefox: We will also be reducing payments for Firefox referrals from China during the third week of February. This specific referral payment change will only affect installations from users in China. As with referrals to AdSense, this is independent of your location as a publisher.

We understand that these changes may decrease revenue for some of you currently participating in these referrals programs. While it is our goal to help publishers earn as much as possible with the AdSense program, like any other referrals advertiser, we are constantly evaluating our campaigns to make them effective and sustainable.

Again, thank you for your feedback and support of the referrals program.


Sincerely,

The Google AdSense Team

Google Inc.
1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View, CA 94043"

Does It Matter Even If Digg Is Sold For 300 Million Dollars?

digg is falling Whether Digg sells for half a million or 300 million dollars, Digg users will still continue using this social news site because it targets a group of users that have long regarded Digg as a bypass channel which generates traffic for their blog and website.

In the last 2 months tons of bloggers sold their blog for a mere $4000-$25,000 with visitors ranging from 10,000-50,000 per month and now a big social news site like Digg with 11.5 million of uniques per month is placing a price tag of 300 million dollars, will you buy it if you are looking for a social site to invest with?

VentureBeat Reports..
“A reliable source just confirmed the company8217s plans, noting the company has hired Allen & Company, a tiny but influential private investment firm, to help broker a deal. The asking price is still $300 million, the source said.
This will come as no surprise. Rumors of a sale have been rampant for months, although until now we hear co-founder Jay Adelson has been trying to muster up interest in a sale. This is the first time Digg has hired a bank to shop the deal, we’re told.”


Now we know that Digg have already found a private investment bank firm to help them sell their site, Techcrunch posted on a short selling rumor history of Digg.

I personally feel that Digg will still continue providing that large amount of traffic to Tech Savvy Blogs & News Website which gives first hand breaking articles. While my blog had never felt the impact of how tens of thousand visitor mobbing my blog but i must thank those who have not sent me low targeted traffic which comes in n average of less than 10 seconds and leave without reading even my first paragraph.

Of course it might also mean that my contents are not that popular on a technology social site like Digg. That is why i recommend those why would like to feel a little jump of traffic submitting to stumbleupon instead. Does it really matter to you whether Digg is Sold, Don’t we still have Stumbleupon,Reddit and other social news site to be contented with?

October Is Over - Look Forward To My Objectives In November 2007

Every month i tell myself i should aim for something higher and let's hope something special comes during November because i felt this month I had one of my biggest returns not in income but ranking and other special stuff. It was just surprises that hit me one after another.


Month of October Goals Met
  • Alexa Ranking - 160,000 to 97,000
  • Technorati Ranking - 39,000 to 27,000
  • Pagerank - 0 to 3
  • Rss Readers & Emails - 154 to 180
  • Earnings were drastically reduced since adsense was remove from the front fold
  • Not in my control but I Won 2 contest of $100 each, Lucky?
  • Releasing my 1st free report (Stumbleupon 14-page report)
slow updates on widget

Month of November Goals to be Met

  • Alexa Ranking Target --> 70,000
  • Technorati Ranking Target --> 20,000
  • Pagerank Target --> 3 (since they update only 3-7 month basis)
  • Rss Reader & Email Target --> 230
  • Sell all my Direct Advertising which i am experimenting, 1 More slot to go!
  • Release my 2nd free report/ebook
  • To Win John and Shoe Rss Competition Prize and something big soon!
What i have to Say
At last i have broke into the 5 digit Alexa ranking so now i have set a goal to reach 70,000. I am also very delighted with the number of increased authorities i received on Technorati though i had some problem with my previous account which is why my backlinks still stays at 200 only, you are more than welcome to drop me an authority by linking to one of my popular post. Do i care about my pagerank at all?

Technorati Experiment
Remember my Technorati 1000 Fans Experiment is still on, i lost almost 100 fans like i said caused by my previous profile being lost, but i am still keeping the fans in my list. If you want to be part of this Technorati 1000 club, add me on Technorati and drop me a note!

Rss Reading is strongly encouraged
It might be because on average i post almost daily so my subscriptions are not doing that well, i hope to see more subscribers on my blog, because you might have missed out an important or vital tip on my blog so i recommend you subscribe through email feed for the latest update daily to your inbox! Will you be one of the 230 that receives fresh inbox tips and tricks daily?

Fresh Tips in your Email Inbox Guaranteed!


Shoemoney & John Chow Prizes
I just thought i deserve to win something from these money makers! I am dying to win something from them. One day it will come and let's hope November is the month!

Releasing of my Second ebook/report
I just thought the release of the first report on stumbleupon did quite well, so i thought why not have another report or ebook release later this month in November? My ebook/report is going to be about make money online, but instead of just dumping affiliate links and the programs purposes. Do you have an idea of how i can create a better and more useful ebook which you want to know personally? Email me or drop me a note, i would like to hear your thoughts of what you want, like make money blogger's case studies etc..

Making Zero Dollars but a Rise in Readers!

With my make money online blog slowly evolving, I am starting to remove ads that is annoying to the readers on my front page. The Usual Google Adsense is nowhere to be noticed on the front portion of my content. Wouldn't that affect your income?

With the poorly positioned ads, i must be honest to say i make cents out of Adsense for now. I intend to remove Adsense for good, because i am focusing on attracting direct advertisers. The reason why i am dropping out every single ads unit on my content is because the content is too cluttered with ads unit for my readers and they are placed aggressively on my top right hand side and 468x60 banner just below my content.

This lost of income will surely affect me, but as a money making blog i must be determine to find the right advertisers that i want on my blog. Removing the ads do improve one thing and that was the number of readers coming back again, i see a 40% rise from my average daily visitors to return back and read my contents again, this is a valuable lesson which i learned, while i don't make any more income from this blog other than my last ad unit placed, i seriously think i will not receive any more fat adsense cheques ever again!

My Rss Feed have been on the rise again, lets hopeful i can hit 200 readers soon, i intend to give something out to my loyal readers, so watch out for my prize, which i will randomly pick from my those who subscribed.

What i am going to do over the next 2 weeks will be sending out emails to potential advertisers to look at my site and analysis whether they would like to advertise on my blog for a special price offered to them.

I am not sure whether it will work 100%, but if i just sit here and wait for someone to contact me for advertising space then it might not even happen. Why not increase the percentage by half contacting them and even if they were to decline, it is worth a try. Let's see who will be my advertisers for the month of November 2007.

If you will like to advertise on my blog, contact me and i am sure we can come to an agreement on the price that you can afford. My aim is to sell all my space by this month, so lets see what's the outcome!

I Won $100 From Shanghai and Won Gospel Goodies From Canada

After i last won a few pens and cap from Super Affiliate Zac Johnson for being July's Top commentor of the month, everything seems to be running dry from the contests i participated. While i did join a couple of those exclusive prize winning contest, i try to avoid them now because the chances are 1 in a million compared to the rest and that is how i won some dollars and gospel goodies!

I won $100 dollars cash from F1Wolf who held a simple contest and it is to guess who is the man behind the wheels on the Ferrari in his header image?

StefanJohansson


You might have guess Michael Schumacher or Gerhard Berger but the car on fire is Stefan Johansson, 1985 Ferrari. With just 10 people getting this correct, my chances were 10% from winning this contest and that is pretty high compared to David Airey's contest which i calculated i had only 0.5% to win anyone of his $4,000 worth of prizes(which i did not win even an USB).

shanghai-babe-in-pit


There is a video which he had done and he got a lady at the pit to draw the 4 winners of the large prints photos and also the $100 cash winner. Sad to say, i could not figure out what happen because the audio was not working and there is no way you can repeat that draw again since the winners are chosen, so it's the final results that was shown that counts on his blog. Surprising i am the winner of the $100 cash!

Not long after I went over to check on Michael Kwan's post, i am also a fan of Michael, he is a very interesting blogger and i love to read on his daily reviews and rumbles. His title "Etienne Teo Wins UGM Swag Without Knowing It" got me thinking, did i win another prize again? I guess i did win, it was a baseball cap and a Nalgene water bottle but did i tell you i was the only contestant?

union-gospel-mission giveaway


I would love to have this item shipped to me directly from his home in Canada, but i gave michael a breather since the shipping fee is gonna cost him more than the $25.90 that i donated to feed 10 more people for UGM which drew in $3,700(with John matching the 44 readers donation at $1,850.39 dollars) for the John Chow Donation Community. I told michael over the mail, that the items i won to be given to the children at UGM and maybe take a photo of that lucky child wearing that cap i gave back.

While i am not a God's Believer, i remember once i went to the church with my friends to experience what it is like to be loved by god, then he told me that in order for god to bless you, you should give what you can and then god will double that amount back to you. Today my $25.90 donation to Union Gospel Mission have certainly given me back more than just double the amount.

If Michael was to send me the baseball cap and the water bottle, i wonder which service would he chose to deliver to me, the Ground service from Canada to Singapore which might take 20 days, or the UPS Worldwide Express in 2 days time to reach me?

Make Instant $25 with Auctionads when you signup!

auctionads affiliatesAfter Auctionads announced their plans to broaden their network, everyone is rushing to get their account with auctionads and I have wrote a dummy guide which should assist you in getting around how you can blend your ads and make them work for you.

Moreover they are going to increase your affiliate earnings from 2% to 5% and for every new publisher that signs up with auctionads, an instant $25 will be banked into your account for a kick start with auctionads.

What happens to those who have not earned a single cent with auctionads?
Of course auction ads are not leaving you guys out! If you have not made a a single cents from them, they are also bumping to your account $25.

New publishers just need to sign up and they will receive a balance of $25.00 automatically. Please note if you signed up with us previously and have never earned a payout we will bump your current balance to $25 too!

Do note that the minimum amount for payout is raised to $50. You still have to work your way to make that extra $25 to cash out. One way or another it seems to have increased the cash out rate by another $5 since the previous minimum was $20, but it's the incentive you are getting $25 which rubs the additional $5 away! Try AuctionAds get your first sweet $25!
