I am part of the million dollar experiment

I was over at Steve Pavlina's website, a site I recently came across that is now one of my favorites, and found this post about his million dollar experiment. The goal of the experiment is to generate $1 million in additional income in the lives of each of the participants. This experiment is based on what Steve calls the intention-manifestation model.

I decided to participate in this experiment, not solely for the pursuit of money, but for the pursuit of being a better, more positive and productive person. A personal challenge for this year, i don't call them resolutions, was to improve my personal productivity and this is another step toward that end. There are too many negative people in this world spewing negative words and discouraging others from their dreams, desires and goals. I don't want to be one of those people. Positive people draw positive things to them and the opposite is true as well. Be a positive person.

Another important reason I intend to succeed in this experiment is my intense desire to help others succeed even beyond my own limited successes. I believe that those that have found success to any level have a duty to help others. We don't have a duty to be haughty and proud or to be a braggart. Those that are emptying their hands helping others have room to receive. Those that hold tightly and do not share are closed to receiving new things. I will succeed, and I will help others do the same so that they may in turn help others.

If you wish to share in my endeavors and believe as I do that it really is more blessed to give than to receive please leave a donation.

eCPM - What It Is And How To Use It

I have been asked this question several times and noticed it poste recently so here is a quick explanation of what the eCPM means in adsense. I also calculate this for my other contextual advertising programs as it a very useful tool.

eCPM is "effective cost per thousand." The m is a holdover, I'm assuming, from manufacturing where it is "cost per million." It is basically estimated earnings for every thousand impressions received. Don't be fooled by excessively high numbers at the start because as your sample size, i.e. impressions, increase your eCPM will most likely drop.

eCPM is calculated by dividing your earnings by your impressions in thousands.

earnings
-------------- x 1000 = eCPM
impressions

I use it to compare ad units to help find optimal color, size, left/right placement etc.

example:

ad unit 1 has 500 impressions with earnings of $2.00 giving you an eCPM of $4.00. ad unit 2 received 400 impressions with earnings of 1.75 for an eCPM of $4.38.

This means that if you received 1000 impressions for ad unit 1 you would earn rougly $4.00 and for ad unit 2 roughly $4.38. Assuming your sample size is large enough to give you statistical significance it would be to your advantage to switch to ad unit 2 as they would generate more revenue per thousand.


hope this helps

How I Got Banned From Adsense And How You Can Avoid It

Okay here is the story. I pissed of a person, which I won't name, in a forum, I won't name, and he started making a few threats that he would get my adsense account banned. Honestly I was new to the adsense game and I didnt' think anything of it at the time. I have learned a ton since then.

Then all of a sudden I noticed a huge increase in traffic and clicks. I thought this was suspicious so I investigated. I found that my sites had been placed, without my knowledge or consent, into a bunch of auto/manual surf programs and click exchanges. I immediately contacted the site admins to have my sites removed and also contacted google about the situation. I did this as soon as I noticed the problem. I got no response from google other than a basic form letter restating the google adsense policies to me. Then several days later I got the dreaded email from google saying my adsense account had been shut down.

Is it really this easy for someone to get you banned?? The short answer is yes it is really this easy. If you don't have the traffic, therefore a little clout, google will ban you pretty much no questions asked and no answers or explanations given. Well I went through the appeal process with google trying to get my account reinstated. I sent them copies of the forum posts, links to the posts, site logs, e-mails to and from the autosurf/click exchange, information from my google analytics, one site administrator even gave me the IP and other information of the person putting my sites up so that I could gave that information to google.

Honestly I don't think they even looked at any of it. My account was seemingly not imporatant as at the time I was only getting about 10 clicks a day. I simply got an e-mail back within literally hours of my appeal restating the adsense policies and saying my appeal had been denied. Again no real explanation and they did not even address all of my evidence and information.

Needless to say I submitted a second appeal with even more information. Once again, this time it was about a day, I received a response stating my appeal was denied. So that is it. Case and adsense account closed due to no wrongdoing of my own. So here is my tip to you on how to avoid being a target of a malicious attack like this. I wish I had learned this several months ago.

Install this script on your site.

Put this script directly after first <head> command


<Script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function out_of_frame()
{
if(window != top)
top.location.href = location.href;
}
// -->
</script>


Now replace your <body> with this


<body onLoad="out_of_frame();">

All autosurfs display your site in a iframe. This script will not allow your page to be loaded in a frame.

I hope this has been informative and helpful.

Just in case I'm too late, or if you simply want diversity, check out one of my previous posts on Adsense Alternatives. These are some really great programs with better payout terms than Adsense anyway.

How I Drive Massive Traffic To My Website: Article Writing

I have tried a myriad of ways to drive traffic to my sites. Some worked some didn't. They all cost me lots of time and money, and the worst thing is that I had to keep working the programs over and and over again costing me more time and more money. I always wished there was a way that I could drive tons of traffic to my site without having to do tons of forum posting, myspace bulletins, "stumbling", "digging", and "redding", or spending a small fortune on ppc advertising.

I have used article sites for quite some time as a source of content for some of my blogs but never really thought about writing articles myself. I never really saw myself as someone who could be a good writer. I guess in hindsight all I really had to do was read some of the articles on the article sites I was using and think to myself, "I can do better than that!" Finally, after a suggestion from a friend, the idea of writing articles and submitting them began to germinate in my head full of mush. I started trying to write articles but was never satisfied with the results. Sure I could write posts for my blogs or topics on forums but this was proving to be a different animal altogether. I found that to me writing the articles was a tall task and it took me a long time to write. I found myself struggling to come up with a topic and when I did I would start the article, get tired of trying to write and put it off until later, which usually never came. Then I stumbled across this product. This system helped me cut my writing time down to right around the 30 minutes talked about in the program. I found this to be a true system - no fluff, just a simple step-by-step process I could duplicate and get the results I had been wanting for a long time.




Using the 30 Minute Article Writing System I found myself writing several articles a week that were ready for submission. Now I found another problem. I had all these great articles I had written but I was spending way to much time submitting them to all the article sites out there. Sooo... since I am always looking for ways to increase output/time, that is productivity for those of you in Rio Linde, I started searching for a way to submit my articles to the hundreds of directories out there. I purchased several products that I was not happy with and then I found the Instant Article Submitter. This allowed me to submit my articles to hundreds of directories literally within minutes. I finally had the combination of Article Writing and Article Submission that saved me time and drove massive traffic to my sites.

I encourage you to write articles on the topic related to your website, and include a link to your site in your author bio. Submit your articles to article directories, and allow people to publish your article in their newsletters and websites. Your articles will spread around the web like wildfire. People will read them and visit your website. The best part is that people who read your articles will regard you as an expert, and they will be much more likely to buy from you when they visit your website. How's that
for a free publicity?

How To Make Money With Clickbank

I am going to show you how to make thousands of dollars promoting products listed on ClickBank -- all without spending any money on advertising. That’s right: No advertising costs to eat into your profits. The sad fact is that most people promoting products listed on ClickBank fail, make very little, or spend more money advertising than they receive back in sales.

If you are not familiar with making money online, I will show you the ropes. If you are already a super affiliate I will show you how to make a killing using powerful techniques that even the super affiliates don’t know about, or want you to know about.

Once you use my videos to set yourself up, you will find that everything runs almost on autopilot. Once everything is established, the only time I spend working is checking my sales and page rankings on the major search engines.

Not only will I show you how to become a super affiliate, I am going to show you how to get first-page rankings on the major search engines of over 20 million. That’s right I have the formula to beat out over 20 million other websites to get top positions. I do not pay a cent to get the material ranked on the search engines. Even better, it brings in the sales where I get the credit and money.

Tips On Advertising With Bidvertiser

If you are planning on using BidVertiser to try and increase the number of clicks on your contextual advertisements you probably won't see a very good ROI if any at all. During my campaigns the focus is on funneling traffic to some of my affiliate programs and earning income that way. Using this technique I have not had a single BidVertiser campaign that didn't give me at least 150% ROI.

You will need to develop a plan, before you start, on how you are going to convert the traffic to profit. I believe it starts with making sure the product is relevant to your blog and your readers. Trying to get conversions on say a mp3 download service when your blog is about soccer probably won't get you very far. You will also need to decide whether you are going to link to an affiliate "pitch" page supplied by the affiliate, not my recommendation by the way, or link to your page/post with a great sales pitch designed around the product.The latter is the way I go and have seen very good results. I link to the "permalink" for the particular post for the product i am marketing and not my main blog page. I then use various analytical tools, such as google analytics, to track my conversion goals and to make changes if i see I'm not getting good results. I hope this was helpful to all of you who have been asking about advertising with BidVertiser

Top 10 Sources for Massive Web Site Traffíc

Experienced webmasters know there are special sources or places on the web which will send massive amounts of traffíc to your site. They also know, if harnessed properly, these mega traffïc sites will supply any web site with a steady stream of visitors.

Perhaps the best source of web site traffíc is Google. That's not exactly a Newsflash, but the key to getting massive amounts of traffíc from Google is to go wide and long. With this strategy, instead of targeting highly popular keywords which may be too competitive for your site to win, you create a whole multitude of lesser known long tail keyword phrases to bring in the traffíc.

This traffíc takes longer to build but because very few webmasters bother with these longer phrases, your keywords will be more stable and secure. Develop a whole líst of these traffíc generating keyword phrases and Google will reward you with a whole flood of targeted visitors stemming from these thousands of small dribbles of long tail keyword traffíc.

Turning these dribbles of traffíc into massive amounts is not a difficult task. One very effective way to tap into the entire search engine source of traffíc is to tag everything. Tags are just another name for keywords. As Web 2.0 or Social Bookmarking sites become more and more popular, tagging will become extremely important.

You must be especially careful of how you tag the content on your site or sites. If you're using a blogging system like WordPress, all your categories will be considered tags automatically. If you're creating URLs, be careful to place your keyword phrase in your links.

Another effective way to tap into the whole keyword traffíc system is to include your keyword phrase or variations of it in your articles while promoting your site. Place your anchor text in your links in the resource box at the end of each article.

Over time, as these articles become distributed all over the web, they will create a steady stream of targeted visitors to your site. Simple, effective and very powerful.

You are probably tired of hearing about Web 2.0 and the new Social Bookmarking sites but they are some of the best places for massive traffíc on the web. Any webmaster who has been Slashdotted already knows this fact all too well; if you get a listing on the homepage of Slashdot.com you will immediately start receiving thousands of visitors to your site. It can be somewhat scary.

A similar experience is getting one of your articles published in ezines run by Addme.com, SiteProNews.com, WebProNews.com, as well as others. These ezines go out to hundreds of thousands of readers and can produce massive traffíc back to your site.

However, much of this sudden traffíc is only temporary and most savvy webmasters know it would be wise to try and capture the contact information of these temporary visitors for follow-up targeting. Turn that temporary visitor into a patron of your site by offering a free ecourse or an email newsletter.

The same marketing technique should be applied to traffíc coming from all these social media sites. Don't think of your traffíc as just numbers in your website's stats, but rather as potential customers who will return to your site again and again.

Keep this strategy in mind as you target some of these Top Sources of massive traffíc on the web:

1. Digg.com
2. Netscape.com
3. Ezinearticles.com
4. Del.icio.us
5. StumbleUpon.com
6. Reddit.com
7. Slashdot.org
8. BlinkList.com
9. Furl.net
10. Squidoo.com

You should be actively promoting these social bookmarking sites by allowing your visitors to easily bookmark your content. You should be creating your own content on sites like Squidoo and placing links back to your site.

Of course, there are countless other sources of massive traffíc on the web. Press releases is another effective way of quickly drawing in massive traffíc to your site. Sites like PRWeb can deliver targeted traffíc very quickly and efficiently.

Another very effective and high converting venue you should try is Yahoo! Answers, a simple process where users post a question and other members/experts offer answers. Used correctly this can be a good source of targeted traffíc.

Don't forget other important search engines such as MSN Live. Traffíc from MSN has earned a solid reputation for converting very well. So optimize your web pages for MSN Live Search and you will probably see an íncrease in your salës as well as your traffíc.

Always keep in mind, the underlying key factor running through all these sources of massive traffíc is unique quality content. You must create good original content on your sites as well as in your articles and posts. Your content must be informative, useful or entertaining. For in the end, it is this quality content that will create the interest, the links and the massive traffic to your site.

Don't ignore this factor or your quest for massive web site traffic will be extremely difficult, if not impossible to achieve.

Tips for Successful Niche Blogging

Let me first say welcome and the best of luck in all of your endeavors. Let me give you a few quick tips

1. Make your blog niche, at least your first or main one, something of interest to you personally.

2. Regularly update the site with posts, links to relevant content, and rss feeds relating to the niche. This will give people a reason to return and help create a sustainable traffic level.

3. Visit other blogs related to yours and post comments with links back to your site. Contact the author and let them know you are linking to their site and ask for them to return the favor. Do this early and often as this will help drive traffic to your site and up your standing in the search engines. Post meaningful comments don't SPAM.

4. Add affiliate programs.
Clickbank - Make Money Selling Digital Products
Traffic Payouts - Promote the #1 Converting Work-At-Home Product!!!!
Have a website? Earn money with LinkShare merchants.
PayLoadz : Sell Downloads Online
ROI Rocket - Make Money!


5. Diversify not only your sites but your advertising. Obviously use adsense but also try BidVertiser. it has a really good program. Another one to try would be AdBrite. I also recommend Obeus.com - The Democratic Ads System. With Obeus.com you will need to register with E-Gold as that is the prefered payment system. E-Gold is a great system and i have been using it for years.

6. Market your site via myspace. you will need to join some groups and forums and then post topics and bulletins. find people in these groups and forums and add them as friends. Add as many friends as possible. Once you begin to build a network you can start posting bulletinsand sending messages to market your site. Also post comments on friends' sites with links back to yours.

7. Visit forums related to adsense type programs, blogging, making money, entrepreneurship, small business, etc., and any related to the topic of your niche and post to them. Don't just post crap as this will work against you. Post honest thoughtful comments and information. Register for these forums and put links to your sites in your signature and when appropriate and, if allowed, your posts. Don't SPAM

8. Register with Blog Carnival and post to and if possible host some carnivals.

9. Remain dedicated. It will take a lot of work in the beginning. Set aside a set amount of time each day to devote to your effort.

Alternatives to Adsense

After a while static advertisements become "invisible" to regular readers so diversify not only your sites but your advertising. Obviously use adsense but also try BidVertiser. and ElementAds they are really good programs with lower minimum payouts(10$) and they both use paypal. Another one to try would be AdBrite. I also recommend Obeus.com - The Democratic Ads System. With Obeus.com you will need to register with E-Gold as that is the prefered payment system. E-Gold is a great system and i have been using it for years. Another great site is AuctionAds. They have great ads based on ebay auctions and the commission is very high.
