Stuff The Gurus, Do It Yourself Instead!

Thursday, October 25th, 2007

I am all for outsourcing jobs to save time. Times the one thing you’ll never have enough off, so making the best use of it is always a good idea.  Web site development and coding is an obvious area where its possible to get someone else to do the donkey work. However in my opinion before […]

How To Trash Your Blog – The Value Of Backups

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

Just upgraded to WordPress 2.3 and managed to pretty much trash the entire blog. Not sure what I did but Wordpress didnt like it. Just had to delete wordpress entirely from the server and reinstall it. Good job I have the themes and posts backed up else I’d be starting from scratch! Always, always backup….you do backup dont […]

BlogRush. Hit or Miss?

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

I notice John Reeses BlogRush is undergoing a few changes. They have removed over 10,000 low quality (spammy?) blogs from the system for starters. Every marketing blog I visit these days seems to have the BlogRush widget up on their site. Its obviously been a massive success in terms of getting known and used but […]

Time To Give Google The Finger?

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

Time to give Google the finger? Err probably not, at least if you’ve seen the latest search engine rankings (small pun there) from a survey over on the BBC news site. TOP SEARCH SITES – AUGUST Google sites 37 billion searches Yahoo sites – 8.5 billion Baidu 3.2 billion Microsoft sites 2.1 billion NHN 2 billion eBay […]

Burn the Midnight Oil – reap the rewards or start a fire….

Monday, October 15th, 2007

The BlueHatSeo site is giving me sleepless nights. I stayed up far too late last night printing stuff off from the site. You really need to print this stuff off and read and re-read it about six times before you get that ah-ha moment (either that or you just hit your head on the desk […]

Ethically Challenged Marketing – The follow up.

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Following on from my last post there is an interesting interview with Eli from BlueHatSeo over on the SEOBook.com. Worth a read just for his insight into the way the search engines are heading.

Internet Marketing For The Ethically Challenged…..

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

Thinking outside the box is a much over used expression these days. Having said that I’ve been immersed in the posts over at Blue Hat SEO for the last day or so. The statement definitely applies here. Elis blog is not for the faint hearted, lets just say you may find some of the techniques […]

We come over all Web 2.0….

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

If youre a frequent visitor here (and I hope you are!) youll have noticed that  Affiliate Monkeys has just undergone a major WordPress theme change. Yes weve gone all Web2.0 on you.. to be honest much as I loved the old site theme, after two years I felt it was looking a little tired. I […]

More recommended Internet Marketing blogs and sites…

Sunday, October 7th, 2007

Tracking the behaviour of visitors to your websites and landing pages can make all the difference between being profitable or not. One new site I’ve come across promises to “visualize” your visitors! Go take a look at CrazyEgg for more details! Another place I’ve found an interesting read of late is Uberaffiliate. Blogs about affiliate […]

Are You Shovelling Cash Down Googles Profit Funnel?

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

I read recently that the average length of time someone tries to make money from internet marketing is less than 12 months. Having said that there does seem to be an inexhaustible supply of newbies throwing themselves in at the deep end and drowning. Just look at the number of Google Adwords ads for any […]
