At least Google is doing more than laying the smack-down on “innocent” bloggers. Slashdot reports that they’ve recently removed over 40,000 malware sites that had gamed the system to achieve top results for thousands of random terms. I wonder how much money these black-hatters made before Google found out about the problem. Fortunately for […]
You’ve probably heard the saying, “set yourself up as an expert” or something along those lines when reading about how to run a successful blog. It’s true, being viewed as an expert in your field is going to help you… presuming you know what you’re talking about.
Otherwise, you’ll only be able to keep the facade […]
With my recent foray into online publishing, it’s become increasingly obvious that with new products, it’s a real challenge to convince buyers to actually click on the “buy now” button without having testimonials on the site.
When you think about this, don’t assume the product is complete BS, but think of a well thought out product […]
So, the results are in, and as I predicted (though I think Jay had a sneaking suspicion that this would happen): Jamie beat out Charles Trippy. Viral Video Fever made $39,000 in the first week, while Jamie’s book made $79,000. Technically, that means that I was right in my predictions… but let’s cut through the […]
This post is going to sound incredibly geeky, however… it’s true. Last Thursday I purchased Mass Effect for the Xbox 360, and ever since picking it up, I’ve played it pretty much non-stop until Monday morning - when I finally beat it with 20 hours played.
What is so amazing about this game is the emotional […]
Jay has led the charge in changing the shift of the blog a little bit, and has started talking about gaming somewhat frequently. Since gaming is a fairly big part of our lives (and Faith’s too), I thought I’d chime in with my thoughts about a game we’re playing through right now.
Faith and I have […]
Writing “make money online” content is hard, especially when there are so many other blogs out there doing it that practically anything you write has been covered before (think: a million monkeys typing on a keyboard coming up with Shakespeare, only Jay is the hairy one). So I thought I’d take a little break […]
One of the most disappointing aspects of online work is: for the most part, you’re not going to earn $1,000,000.00 in 30 days or less.
It’s ok… Take a minute for the shock of that statement to pass.
I recently purchased Affiliate Elite, and part of their “bonuses” was a 30 minute consultation phone call with an […]
A few months ago, I launched a new website for my company, and in that time I’ve been focusing on targeting local search terms in my small area - mainly “Cityname Web Design” or “Cityname Provice Web Design” and variations on that. My main domain has a lot of trust in the search engines already, […]
This week has sure opened with a bang for my online business… To start things off, I accepted the latest offer on my first digital product, and while I did sign a NDA (non-disclosure agreement) I can tell you it was a very fair offer that will go a long way towards my dream basement […]
