A few months ago I wrote about my dependency to Google and how they could totally shut down my business in no time. Maybe someone at Google read me and wanted to prove me right. After a year of using Adwords (and over $22,000 later), Google decided I wasn’t good enough for its online advertising service and disabled my account. Forever. (more…)
A friend of mine sent me an email and asked me the following question about content creation.
Instead of replying to him, I thought that would be a good case study about duplicate content and how to create good content for your site.
If you have questions you’d like me to answer, feel free to contact me.
Last month an incident happened that made me realize how dependent I am to Google. It all started when I did my daily check of my largest ClickBank account. It appeared that I had made only 2 sales the prior day, something that rarely (if ever) happens. (more…)
Ever wanted to check out your ClickBank accounts on the go? If so, you probably know what a pain in the ass it is, especially if you try to access multiple accounts. There is a new iPhone app available in the App Store called CB Stats that will allow you to check multiple ClickBank accounts in no time. It’s good, it’s fast, and it does exactly what it’s supposed to. But there’s still a few features missing. (more…)
Something that freaks me out more than anything online is seeing some of my websites or pages disappearing from Google’s index from time to time. There is generally a good reason for that to happen and troubleshooting the issue quickly and thoroughly can help you save tons of “leaking traffic”. I had a similar problem over the weekend. Let me tell you what happened and how I fixed it. (more…)
A few months ago, I finally took the the plunge by quitting my full time job in order to focus 100% on my internet business, and so far, I have to admit it is the best decision I ever made: I don’t have anyone to report to anymore; I don’t have a schedule; I do what I want; and I can work from anywhere in the world. The best is, I make about as much (maybe more) than I did in my full time job. Looks great on the paper, doesn’t it? But is it as great as it seems to be? (more…)
If you use Google Analytics to track your websites stats, you have probably realized that Google doesn’t let you see the full URL of the sites referring traffic to you. That’s a basic feature that somehow is not included in GA but fortunately for us, there is a simple trick you can implement to display the full URL of the referring site. (more…)
