Is john chow game over Why John Got Sent To The Penalty Box

    If you’ve done a Google search lately for ‘make money online’, you know that John Chow is no longer ranked #1.   

     I think it’s a good wake up call for everyone. We should all be building links as naturally as we can. John’s being sent to the penalty box was likely due to one of the following theories:

       His overly-aggressive link baiting. While his link baiting is masterful, it isn’t a natural way to get links. It’s one of those things that a lot of people could get away with, but John got caught since he got too big. I guess when you’re that big it’s only a matter of time until the wrong person sees how you’re getting all those links.

He’s linking to a ton of unrelated sites that add little or no value to his ‘make money online’ subject material. He’s got 15 site-wide, sponsored links and has done 87 batches with his ‘review for a link back’ promotion. That’s a lot of out-bound links that are pointing to sites. It is a definite possibility that his continued linking to such sites passed over some kind of Google boundary, triggering a filter. His 15 sponsored links are especially dangerous since he has over 3000 pages in Google’s index – that’s 45,000 outbound links that aren’t related to his subject material.

        I think his anchor link strategy was wrong. Making “Make Money Online” his only anchor link made the game very obviousIf Google had changed their algorithm to discount John’s linking scheme, I’d say you’d have something to worry about. Since they’re just penalizing his site across the board, I don’t think we have anything to worry about yet.

Comment and Functionality of Apple iphone

        In the pass few days I was reading review from the net about the positive and negative news of the apple iphone from I have read it has more negative news than positive, about the functionality of this Iphone.  

     

       Wouldn’t it be great if the iPhones were given out for review based upon qualification of the reviewer, rather than how big the name was in the media? If that were the case, you would already be reading the review by News and other articles  

       As it is, the consensus is that the iPhone may be the first integrated handheld that combines phone, media player, and Internet capabilities while managing to get it right.

      Below are some of the review from the net.

        However, there are caveats, which include: Call quality seems to be average. Although this could be attributed as a fault of AT&T, AT&T is contractually synonymous with the iPhone for the time being, at least in the US.

         AT&T’s EDGE network can be slow… very slow for web browsing. “You almost ache for a dial-up modem,” according to David Pogue.

The predictive texting and a virtual keyboard takes getting used to. Some people may not be able to do so. Again, David Pogue, when speaking with a product manager, was told to “use the Force.” That, of course, meaning that he should concentrate less on each letter and more on overall text.

  • No Java, no Flash, native application support limited to Apple, except through non-SDK AJAX in Safari.

  • Some headphone jacks may not fit without adapters.

  • The camera can’t record video.

  • The positives were to be expected, with possibly a few surprises.

  • The interface worked exceedingly well, not surprising considering how clunky the competition to date has been and that this is Apple we are talking about.

  • The iPhone does exceptionally well at web browsing and e-mail. “E-mail looks more like you’re working on a computer than a clunky phone,” said Steven Levy of Newsweek.

  • Battery life apparently is a surprise, at least in comparison to some of the predictions. Walt Mossberg got seven hours of talk time with the WiFi on. David Pogue got five hours playing video and 23 hours playing audio with WiFi enabled.

  • The scratch-resistant surface is glass and really can resist scratches. Both David Pogue and Walt Mossberg kept the device in their pants—is that an iPhone in your pocket, or are you just sterilizing yourself with RF?—and neither reported issues. While the surface does smudge, it cleans easily. Edward Baig of USA TODAY said the screen was “visible even in direct sun.”

 

                                                    There were a couple of other interesting points that deserve notice, or possibly derision.

 

Walt Mossberg said the iPhone would only work in Europe using AT&T’s roaming plan. Sure. Engadget is now reporting that Vodafone is currently the frontrunner for the iPhone in Europe and also speculates that will mean 3G support. As long as I am picking on Mossberg, I should also point out this comment.

“It can also handle corporate e-mail using Microsoft’s Exchange system, if your IT department cooperates by enabling a setting on the server.”

This sounds like a description of IMAP from an AOLperson, though there is a rumor to the effect that the iPhone will support Exchange. Finally, in a conversation with Steve Jobs over an iPhone, Steven Levy asked about the prediction of 10 million iPhones sold in 2008. “I think we’re going to blow away the expectations,” Jobs said.

It looks like Apple has another hit on its hands. One can only wonder what iPhone V2.0 will bring.

How to get tons of free traffic to your web site free.

                  

     Welcome, everybody, to the exciting new hi-tech world of internet-based blogging! Did you know that today, over 25 million peoples world wide are writing their own blogs — and nearly 15 million people are actually reading them? With mind-boggling numbers like that, no wonder you are thinking about “taking a high dive” into the red-hot blogosphere jacuzzi. But as a multi-month veteran of the “scene,” I have too often witnessed the same tragic story — a naive rookie sets up a blog, posts a few articles, gets stymied by the lack of site hits, and quits in frustration to spend more time with his family.

       Alvin phang the man behind these atomic blogging program is the answer to it.

       Everyday, I hear the same frustrated questions, from where can we get traffic for free . We all know the few basic places we can get free traffic.1) Post at forum.2) article submission.3) social book marking.4) blogging.      These are the few suggestion from most Gurus will tell you. But do you know to post to all these site and forum it need a lots of time and is not very productive. If your want your sites to be know by 10 or 20 social book marking it may take hour. Will there be any better and easiest way with minimums cost.  It’s kind of confusing, but for your blog to be know to other you will need “software,” which is a “hi-tech” term for a thing inside the computer that keeps your blog from accidentally exploding and ruining all the wires. The key is to select the proper blogging software for your budget and level of stupidity. Many beginning bloggers use “Blogger,” which is free, but do not let the name confuse you — it will not automatically write your blog for you. Sophisticated users sometimes use hi-powered software like Movable Type and a hosting service. For Iowahawk I selected TypePad, which is somewhere in between, but does not have the full strobe seizure capabilities of Movable Type. Ultra-high-end users such as Andrew Sullivan sometime select secret atomic blogging systems that reportedly cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per month. If you choose this route, make sure you budget enough blog time for pledge drives. 

      How to get ton of traffic to your web site or blog  To help you through all that techno-drudgery, keep your mind focused on the most important goal of any blogger – watching that sweet, sweet money roll in. But let’s face it, it’s not just going to happen automatically. You first have to “bust a hump” and get the word out, and build your personal herd of cash cows. Your best chance at success is getting linked by million-hits-per-week bloggers .

          Atomic blogging should be the solution for the missing link TRAFFIC and is TON of Traffic.

A New Way to Pay – Google Expands Pay-Per-Action for Google AdWords

       Google announced today the worldwide expansion of its pay-per-action advertising beta. Pay-per-action is a new pricing model that allows advertisers to pay only when a pre-defined action is completed on their site, such as when a user makes a purchase, signs up for a newsletter, or completes any other clearly defined action. Since the initial launch of the pay-per-action advertising beta in March 2007, many advertisers who have used the new pricing model are pleased with the opportunity to have more ways to promote their products and services online.

    “Pay-per-action advertising helped our company make the most of our marketing budget,” said Alexandre Douzet, Executive Vice President and General Manager, TheLadders.com, the leading $100k+ job search web site and an early adopter of Google’s pay-per-action advertising model. “At TheLadders.com, we are big proponents of marketing efficiency, so the ability to supplement our existing cost-per-click campaigns with a model that rewards qualified leads makes a lot of sense to us.”

     Starting today, advertisers in the beta will see an alert in their AdWords account informing them that they can now create pay-per-action campaigns. Going forward, advertisers who have enabled AdWords conversion tracking and received more than 500 conversions from their CPC and CPM-based campaigns in the past 30 days will be automatically added to the beta on a rolling basis.

      Pay-per-action ads are only shown on publisher sites in the Google content network, also known as Google AdSense™ for content sites. Publishers in the Google content network who want greater control over the ads shown on their sites may select between individual ads, a shopping cart of ads, or a specific keyword that is relevant to their site’s content. These publisher-selected ad units contain only pay-per-action ads, and therefore, they do not compete in the auction against CPC or CPM-based ads, which are served in separate AdSense for content ad units.

      With this new pricing model, both advertisers and publishers gain more precision and control over their efforts to effectively spend advertising budgets and deliver relevant ads to related website content. Pay-per-action advertising is now available to qualifying advertisers worldwide.
