Delicious Is About To Move – Why Is That Important For You?

September 16th, 2011 3 comments

If you have a delicious account, you probably got a notice asking you to log in and consent your approval to allow your account to be moved to a new company called AVOS next week.

So why, you ask, is that important enough to blog about?

Well, AVOS is a new internet company being put together by Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, the creators of YouTube. YouTube has become one of the top websites on the Internet today, and people who have traffic coming to their videos are able to easily profit off of that.

It’s a pretty safe bet that Chad, Steve and their team will work tirelessly to make Delicious just as big.

Social networking is already known as a great traffic source, but can you imagine what it’s going to be like in two or three years if giants like the YouTube founders are pushing at it?

It’s probably going to be huge!

So what’s the point?

The point is that now you have an opportunity to be in the “pre-launch” of the next big thing on the internet. Start using your delicious account now, keep at it, and by the time it’s become even more massive, you’ll have yourself a nice well-aged profile that Google will use to feed traffic to your websites.

Yes, it’s a very long-term investment, but think about where you’d like to be in a few years, and how much traffic you’ll want then.

Do you think I’m wrong? Leave a comment below and let me know.

Conclusion: TrafficSwarm’s Quality is Dropping

September 8th, 2011 8 comments

A month ago I wrote about how excited I was about the silent re-launch of TrafficSwarm, but after a month of upgraded membership, I’ve got to say that I was disappointed with the outcome.  My time-tested banners didn’t convert; my time-tested squeeze pages didn’t work; even copy that rocks on AdWords didn’t perform on-par in TrafficSwarm.

I’m not sure what happened, or if maybe I just had a bad few weeks with them; I honestly wish I was getting the old performance so I could keep paying for their awesome-ness, but it’s not gonna happen based on what I’ve seen the last month.

Such is life, I guess.

On a happier (much happier) note, I’ve recently re-discovered AdSense.  Would you believe that after just one month’s work, starting completely from scratch, I’m already averaging a dollar a day?  That’s with just 2 sites showing up in the top 10 in google for *anything* and as I work on SEO, the rankings are increasing, and so are the daily profits.  Cool!

The next step is to plug in banners for some of my favorite clickbank products.
