Here’s the announcement…
Amit Mehta and myself have started out own software company… I wanted you to be the FIRST to know about it.
But instead of me explaining everything…
He explains it ALL and how YOU can partner with us…
Any questions? Let me know!!
To your success,
Fitting subject line is it not? It has been over two years since I last posted on my blog.
I know what you are thinking.. was he abducted?
No not quite.
To be honest I took my life in a new direction. I actually moved to Florida for two years
and put 100% of my time into a new company I started with Amit Mehta.
I am now back in VT (for a short while).
I will be announcing something soon that has some potential opportunities for you.
For now, I just want to say..
Hey it’s been a while but wow I can’t remember when I’ve been this busy! I have several projects going on as well as some PR stuff. I wanted to post a link to a PodCast where I was interviewed by AffiliateWire (RevenueWire) on WebmasterRadio.fm:
I talk about many things I think you’ll find of interest… and yes, the content network was also discussed
Until next time…
How often do you review Google’s site quality guidelines? Honestly, I never used to all that much until recently… now I go through them with a fine tooth comb.
Enjoy the video!
I just wanted to post some thoughts to help you in 2010. These thoughts are mostly about Google of course, and how you can get through the slaps and actually make more money than you were previously.
First, let me say I in NO WAY agree with how Google has handled the recent series of slaps and bans. Over 100,000 people had their AdWords accounts terminated since Sepetember. Some didn’t even get a warning.
No reasons for the most part… just “low quality landing pages”. Some had content sites LOADED with content to the tune of hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of articles. It didn’t matter.
BTW here is an official reason for a ban (ARBITRAGE_AFFILIATE_BRIDGE) from a Google rep who sent this to a person who was actually banned when he asked for more info as to WHY. Affiliate Bridge… hmmmmmm.
My take? I think Google is really taking favor to merchants because they view affiliates as “duplicate content” servers. Think about it. No matter what site people click on, if people are all basically hitting the same merchant sites in the end, then the site is really a duplicate content server.
bestwidgets.com – 100 unique articles, aff links to allwidgets.com
topwidgets.com – 100 unique articles, aff links to allwidgets.com
widgethub.com – 100 unique articles, aff links to allwidgets.com
In the end, these are basically bridge pages to allwidgets.com.
The big question is, what can you do about it. I think the game has changed to where you need to have your own product, whether it be an ebook on widgets, a membership site on widgets, SOMETHING. Just don’t have blatant affiliate links.
Another reason is I believe Google will eventually become the world’s largest super affiliate. They now have their own affiliate network and are looking to draw merchants whom THEY will advertise.
I won’t go in depth, but it’s covered pretty well here.
My point is, if you want to continue on the AdWords gravy train, look to where Google is heading, and join them. That’s all you can do.
I hope 2010 brings you much prosperity, happiness and health and I look forward to continuing to provide you even more insights!
