Blogkits for your blog this Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! I would like to tell you some good news if you haven’t heard of it yet. Recently, on Monday Dec 11, a wonderful thing happened. was launched and it promises to be a great thing for the small blogger whose blog does not have so much traffic.

When you do not have much traffic, you won’t earn much with AdSense but it is said that you can earn much more by putting Blogkits ads which are Cost Per Action (CPA) ads. It’s the latest wonderful thing that is happening in blogosphere. Now there is a trend towards CPA in Internet marketing and this couldn’t come at a more opportune time.

Actually, BlogKits was created by Jim Kukral in early 2005 as a solution to help bloggers find new ways to earn a profit with their blogs.

BlogKits was acquired in 2006 by Forge Corporation, a global affiliate marketing firm, and has been transformed into a world-class affiliate marketing tracking network built for bloggers (affiliates) and advertisers. Bloggers, it will pay you to check it out .

I’ll let Jim Kukral do the talking:

BlogKits... In A Nutshell

Our business model is simple...
Help 99% of 50-70 million low-traffic bloggers make a few extra bucks by giving them easy to implement tools and partnerships that lets them keep blogging, instead of trying to be an expert marketer.

We're an alternative to things like Google Adsense. We believe that low-traffic blogs will never make more than a few pennies per day with Adsense, and argue that those bloggers are better served shooting for a CPA return on investment.

Please view our Google Adsense Blog Earnings Calculator Tool to see what we mean.

The More, Official Explanation...
BlogKits is the first, and only affiliate marketing network built for bloggers. It's an alternative monetization method for millions (99% of all blogs) of low-traffic bloggers who aren't expert marketers.

Why Is BlogKits Different Than Say A Normal Affiliate Network?
BlogKits ends the confusion, makes it simple & provides the best options that benefit the blogger. Here's how.

  1. When a blogger logs into a typical affiliate network, she sees thousands of programs to choose from. Once she selects a progam to promote, she then sees a large assortment of banners and text links. What does she choose? She's not an expert marketer. Which banner should she use? Where should she place it on here blog? Which product sells best?It shouldn't be so hard, BlogKits makes it easier...

  2. When a blogger logs into BlogKits, she has to complete two simple steps. The first is to choose which type/style of advertisement to use. Either a simple text ad, or an understated sidebar banner ad, both built specifically for bloggers.
The second step is for the blogger to decide what type of ads will fit best for her readers. For example: if she has a blog that is read mostly by small businesses, she would simply grab one pre-built piece of tracking code for that category, place it in her blog, and be done.

The BlogKits system will rotate the pre-selected ad units for the blogger. Each time a reader clicks and purchases, the blogger earns a % of that order.

Read the FAQ for more answers.
How can BlogKits help my blog?

  1. By adding an additional, non-competitive, revenue generator on your blog that can earn you more money

  2. By making your blogging efforts even more worthwhile

  3. By giving you an easy to implement method to make money from your blog through trusted merchants and brands

So, there you are. You have a blog and want an honest, easy & effective solution to earn a few bucks. Log in for a 1-minute free signup at and easily put the ad codes on your blog to get started straightaway.

Mistakes and the Internet marketer

As an Internet marketer you should never fear making mistakes in your Internet business, for as George Bernard Shaw said, a life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life doing nothing.

As the year is coming to an end, we should pause a little and scrutinize our mistakes made during the year and learn from them. However, when you make a mistake, don’t look at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.

Also, we must learn from the mistakes of others, for it has been said that wise men profit more from fools than fools from wise men; for the wise men shun the mistakes of fools, but fools do not imitate the successes of the wise.

Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from :-)

There is a wise man in Joel Comm, a top Internet marketer. Here is Joel Comm’s list of BIG mistakes in Internet marketing you should avoid making:

Big Mistake #1--------------NEVER click on your own AdSense ads and don't ever invite anyone to click on your AdSense ads! This is the fastest way to end up without an AdSense account.

Big Mistake #2--------------DON'T become a infoproduct-aholic! There is a lot of fantastic products and services out there to help you with your business, but don't buy so much that you can't usewhat you already have purchased! Stay focused and disciplined, with a plan of action, and you may find that you already have everything you need. Just because I, or another teacher, recommend a product or service doesn't necessarily mean that it is for absolutely everyone.

Big Mistake #3--------------NEVER accept an email list from someone claiming to offer "opt-in" addresses that you can send email to! This is a completely illegitimate way to market and you will officially become a SPAMMER if you use one of these lists to market your site, product or services. I've seen at least one high-profile marketer offering "new opt-in" email lists as bonuses. Avoid these like the PLAGUE unless you want to end your online career early.

Big Mistake #4--------------DON'T invest in products or services for the bonuses offered! There have been some incredibly ridiculous bonuses given away with products recently. Forgive me for saying so, but if you are buying a revenue-generating opportunity because it comes with a scooter or dvd player, you have been totally distracted from the reason you are purchasing the product in the first place and should probably just hang on to your wallet. If a product isn't worth investing in on it's own merits, it probably isn't worth investing in at all.

Big Mistake #5--------------DON'T try to do too many things at once! It is way too easy to spend time learning how to become an HTML expert, graphic designer, copywriters, marketing guru, product creator, and so forth. But none of us are wired to do ALL things. I believe that's why God gave us each other, with each person uniquely wired to do their part. Instead, learn to outsource those things which don't come naturally to you. You'll find that you are far more productive and effective doing the things you ARE good at... and you'll probably enjoy your work more and feel less stressed.

That’s very good advice from Joel Comm, the top AdSense guru. And he’s not top notch for nothing. He’s a prudent, clever and wise man.

However, I will take leave with a parting thought…The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one…

A little bit of poetry

A little bit of poetry

To add a little culture here at my blog, I shall digress a little and indulge in savouring a couple of beautiful poems written by Robert Louise Stevenson for children and those young at heart :-)

See how simple the words he used, the turn of phrase and how effectively and harmoniously he constructed the verses to rhyme. I’m sure you’ll find it a pleasure to read.

Where Go the Boats?

Dark brown is the river,
Golden is the sand.
It flows along for ever,
With trees on either hand.

Green leaves a-floating,
Castles of the foam,
Boats of mine a-boating--
Where will all come home?

On goes the river
And out past the mill,
Away down the valley,
Away down the hill.

Away down the river,
A hundred miles or more,
Other little children
Shall bring my boats ashore.
Robert Louise Stevenson

Bed in Summer

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.

I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people's feet
Still going past me in the street.

And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?
Robert Louis Stevenson

Does AdSense Make Sense?

Does AdSense Make Sense?
For many people, being able to put Google AdSense ads on their websites to earn money is a very welcome thing. But it’s a different matter to some other people. Like with 54-year-old Australian, Graham Hunt, the idea is against his principles.

In his article which appeared in he says AdSense makes no sense to him. It is an interesting point of view and it is worthwhile reading the article which I reproduce as follows:

Adsense Makes No Sense To Me
By Graham Hunt

You won’t find any Adsense ads on my website.

Yes, I’ve read about the apparent “death of Adsense” and my inbox has been stuffed with claims and counter claims about the value of this product or that strategy. But that is not the reason.

You see, I am a writer. I love nothing more than to research and write material on the area of my passion. In fact I have devoted my life to that very thing. Other than a bit of housework and meal preparation in support of my hardworking life- partner, my time is spent online researching and writing my own material. I am very proud of the material I have produced and offer in the form of articles and e-books on my website.

Once I have attracted a visitor to my site, why on earth would I want them to suddenly leave and go who knows where? At least if they clicked on an affiliate link I have something of an advantage for two reasons: (a) I have chosen where the visitor will go when they leave my site and (b) I could receive some income if they purchase the product or service on the site to which I am an affiliate.

With Adsense, the most likely place my hard-earned visitor would end up would be my direct competitor! That’s like owning a Pizza restaurant and advertising the local Chicken Take-Away in my establishment. Yet, that is in effect, the type of thing I would be doing if I displayed Adsense on my site.

Yes, it might make sense to Google to provide contextual advertising. It would probably even make sense to the advertiser (otherwise why would they do it). But it makes no sense to me.

I write because I believe I have something worthwhile to say. I believe, in all honesty, there are a lot of people who would benefit from hearing what I have to say. I also believe that laborers are worthy of their hire, so yes, I offer some of my material for sale.

I put my material before people. If they like what they see, if it fills a need in their life at that particular moment in time, they may buy. If they don’t like what they see, that’s okay. But the last thing I want is for them to rush in and out of my ‘store’ because their attention has been grabbed by my competitor who I allow to stand in the entrance to my place of business for the purpose of diverting my customers across to his ‘store’. Will they come back to me? I don’t really know, but I sure as heck would rather it didn’t happen in the first place.

On the other hand, I recognize that I am something of a crusader. My site is not there specifically for me to make money, although the income is appreciated. If I was only interested in making money (and it seems, if you believe everything you read you either make millions or you make zero when you are in business on the Internet. There is, apparently, no middle ground) then I could provide the mega-store approach and offer you anything and everything your heart desires.

I heard recently of one entrepreneur who has 75,000 websites! Apparently the content on those sites is so unappealing that he makes tens of thousands of dollars each month from Adsense alone.

To that I say “Great. I trust he enjoys his money.” I choose to journey along a road apparently less travelled. What I lose out on in the area of financial gain, I certainly make up for in satisfaction of achieving my life’s goal and a career path that I honestly love. There’s not much more I could ask for.

Summing up of debate on Death of AdSense

Google AdSense publishing on websites to earn money is a popular work at home business which uses Internet marketing and this debate is relevant.

I would like to share with you this short interesting article which aptly sums up the great debate on the Death of AdSense in the Internet marketing scene.

The article appeared recently in and goes like this:

Internet Marketing - What Do You Think of the "Adsense is Dead" Debate?
By Sean Mize

Are you here: This is a hard-ranging debate started by click flippers that are licking their chops over Google Adsense slaps.

Or here: Adsense is alive, and for white hat marketers, Adsense revenue is way up, and will continue to climb. Adsense is only dead for black hat marketers who disrespect Google Adsense
and the financial opportunity provided by Google.

I think everyone that has been able to keep out of the emotional fray recognizes that the Adsense is Dead campaign was strictly created to sell an over priced course on click flipping.

But what is the truth? Google Adsense revenues seem to be up. But bid prices seem to me to be down. Does this mean that a larger number of sites are now hosting Adsense and therefore the average operator revenue is down while Google profits are up?

Can new Adsense templates (like the ones just released by Adsense guru Joel Comm) make up for the stress of the death of Adsense, or is this just another ploy to put money in the pockets of another long-term marketer?

My personal opinion - Google will find a way to ban the new Adsense templates as soon as they become profitable.

My solution to the internet marketer: Stop relying on Google Adsense for revenue, allow bid prices to drop, and use Google Adwords to drive high-profit traffic to solid, sales driven web sites.

My solution involves driving subscriber traffic to my high profit information sites that convert to big dollars for me-- and I don’t give Google, click flippers or Adsense templates my dollar.

Google AdSense may soon be repackaged

Looks like AdSense ads in its present form just might soon be phased out eventually. There is recent news, since end of September 2006, that Google is currently running beta testing of Cost Per Action AdSense ads with a selected small group of people.

The inference is that after beta testing, Google may carry out a full international launch of CPA AdSense ads. This means that clicks on AdSense ads will not be paid. CPA AdSense ads publishers are paid only if an action is carried out by the visitor after the ad is clicked. The action can be a purchase or generating a sales lead. That is, either the visitor buys or he fills his details in a form.

The advertiser will have choice of paying for an outright sale or for getting a sales lead, depending on the nature of the business. He will also decide on how much to pay.

Thus, for the AdSense publisher, not every click will result in getting payment, but the payment would be many, many times more when a sale or a lead is generated after the click. This will be living up the Internet marketing food chain.

It will also solve the problem of click fraud which is presently costing advertisers 10 to 15 percent or more of the payments. Click fraud is an enormous nagging problem to Google.

A pertinent question is how will it affect the AdSense publishers? Will they earn more or less? The guess is that the advertisers will be more aggressive because they know that their budget results directly in sales or leads (which could very likely turn out to be sales). The risks are very much reduced and the advertisers can be expected to be very aggressive in bidding for AdWords. Thus, all in all, the AdSense publisher will stand a good chance of earning more, even with Google there taking a cut as middleman.

This CPA concept is not altogether new, however. So, if you can't wait for the new CPA AdSense to be implemented (if ever), then you can join the many CPA networks which offer a wide variety of goods and services paying very high commissions for sales and leads. Some of the CPA networks are Click Booth, Modern Click, and Azoogle. Thus we make a full circle and come back to the original concept of affiliate marketing.

The Death of AdSense

Over the last week, the Internet marketing community was abuzz over the report of "The Death of AdSense". Scott Boulch, who wrote the report, said in an email, that releasing the report was like hitting a hornets' nest with a baseball bat.

He said he had some interesting emails and seen some wild accusations on blog posts and forums regarding his report. He says the viral nature of the report, and the amazing amount of atttention it's getting is huge.

So was the follow-up report "Life After AdSense". During the promotion of the two reports, and due to the massive amount of traffic they were getting, they "completely fried a new Dell server!" Fortunately the system they were on had redundant back ups, so they didn't lose any data.

In the first 9-1/2 days they created over 27,500 opt-ins, and hit #424 on Alexa's rankings on the highest day! They instantly became the most talked about website in the entire internet marketing community. They just kept growing, and growing, and growing!

Scott said: "We also helped crash Direct Track, the system software that runs Modern Click! In addition my rep from Azoogle called and said they were swamped with applications and have 5 people working all day on approvals!"

Closer to home, he had personally been flooded with positive responses from the release of the second installment "Life After AdSense." He said it would be impossible for him to handle the volume of individual requests he was getting and hoped he will have a process developed shortly to get out more information more efficiently.

Scott says in the coming week he will have two surprises coming our way, and just like the first two reports, you can leave your wallet in your pocket. He will be releasing a recording of an exclusive interview with a former AdSense Guru that has moved on up the food chain and created some amazing results.

Also in the coming week, he will be coming out with a special report filled with "Hard Data" that the "Gurus" will not want you to see. And "The Numbers Don't Lie" says Scott.

Well, I'm sure all of us are eagerly waiting for the two surprises and will thank Scott for them.

AdSense and Traffic Exchanges

Traffic Roundup owner, Stephen Ayer, in his September 5 address to his Traffic Roundup traffic exchange members, made an impassioned plea to them to safeguard their AdSense accounts. It is a fact that many traffic exchange users don’t know it’s against Google’s rules to put a page with AdSense ads on it for rotation in a traffic exchange.

I personally have come across three persons who unwittingly did so and received a warning email from Google about something regarding invalid impressions which they can’t understand or figure out. So they carried on until they read what Stephen Ayer had to say. I reproduce it here for everybody’s benefit:

The Traffic Roundup Cattle Call
By Stephen Ayer
Howdy Pardner - Thanks for moseyin' by!
Adsense Revisited

We have covered this in the past, but we have so many new members since that time, and it is so important, that we want to go over it again.

One of the greatest things to ever happen to netpreneurs is the opportunity to earn a very healthy income by placing Google Adsense ads on their websites. This is so real, so big and so achievable that it would be a disaster for anyone who has an Adsense account to lose it due to violating their terms of service, whether by accident or intentionally.

It seems that anyone who really had a grasp on the long term Adsense income possibilities could not purposely break their TOS, but some do. This is not directed at them. This is meant for those who are rightfully excited about the chance to have fun and make money with Adsense, and may not have taken the time to read their terms, or maybe didn't understand them (sometimes it's very difficult to sort out 'legalese'.)


You can not put your page into rotation on a traffic exchange if it has Adsense on it. It breaks their Terms of Service and you will likely get your account closed and never re-opened.

You can not put your page into rotation on a traffic exchange if it has Adsense on it. It breaks their Terms of Service and you will likely get your account closed and never re-opened.

That's not a typo. It's there twice because you need to understand how serious this is. Read it again. All of us involved in the Adsense program want traffic to our sites, but this is not the way to get it to a site with Adsense on it.

If you want to use a traffic exchange to promote your site that has Adsense on it, build a splash page to attract visitors and make sure there are no Adsense ads on it.

It's not worth it. You probably won't even make the money you think you earned during the time you promoted that site on traffic exchanges because Adsense will likely give the money back to the advertisers and close your account.

We are not going to stop you from adding your site if it has Adsense, but we sure hope that you will heed this warning. Sure, there are other sites similar and you might make a little money from them if you lose your account, but there are few or none as good as Adsense.

When you consider there are a lot of people making around $10,000 a month or more with Adsense, you might want to get very protective of your account. By the way, that dollar amount is not hype like most of the junk you read from other businesses, we personally know and have been in the company of some of these folks. Please don't lose your Adsense account.

So there you are, straight from the heart of Stephen Ayer, a man of integrity who doesn’t want business if it hurts others.

Nevertheless, remember if you have AdSense on your site you can still use the traffic exchanges if you submit one page of your site without AdSense on it but with all the links to your other pages that have AdSense. Or you can build a splash page (with no AdSense on it) to attract visitors to your AdSense-filled site.

Google's Writely set to beat Microsoft Word

Google now has a web-based word processor, in beta testing, called Writely which obviously challenges the extremely popular desktop word processor Microsoft Word. Writely, being web-based and online, allows you to access your documents from anywhere at all without having to be bound to the same computer. This means if you work on a document at home, you can retrieve it on the web in your office computer the next day or whenever.

It can also be used to do collaborative text editing whereby several people can work together on the same document at the same time from different computers. Writely's user interface is a WYSIWYG word processor, much like Microsoft Word, but appears within a web browser.

This online word processor is free. Also, there is no overall storage limit for files. However, individual text files cannot exceed 500KB each and images cannot exceed 2MB each.

Files made in Writely can be saved in MS Word (.doc) format and several other common formats like Postscript, Rich Text Format, and ODF that can be processed in many office suites. Writely's files can also be saved as basic HTML and PDF. However, there is the possibility that PDF could become a premium feature once the program comes out of beta testing.

Another interesting feature is its integration with blogging servers, including Google's own Blogger. After server configuration, users can simply press a button to upload their new post. However, there could be some teething problem at the moment. I tried it and the post went to be saved as draft in Blogger.

Writely is the product and Upstartle, which had four employees at that time, was the company that owned, developed and maintained it. On March 9, 2006, Writely was acquired by Google.

Immediately following the acquisition by Google, Writely stopped accepting new registrations to its services for about five months until the move to Google servers was complete.

When the service re-opened to the public on August 21, 2006 it had been completely relocated to Google's servers but surprisingly not yet integrated into Google's suite of web services and utilities. However, it is expected to figure well in Google's plans and may well overtake Microsoft Word in popularity.

Now for a comprehensive summary of the features of Writely:

Maintainer: Google

Required Operating System: Any web-based application

Use: Online word processor


With Writely, you can:

  • Use the online editor to format documents, spell-check and more.
  • Upload Word documents, OpenOffice, RTF, HTML or text.
  • Download documents to your desktop as Word, PDF and more.
  • View your documents' revision history and roll back to any version.

Plus, since it's online, you can:

  • Invite others to share your documents by e-mail address.
  • Edit documents online with whomever you choose.
  • Publish documents online to the world, or to just who you choose.
  • Post your documents to your blog.

See, for a free program that is a lot to offer. So, if you have not signed up yet, I would urge you to do so soon at for something that is going to be very big in the months to come. Believe me, Writely is very practical and extremely useful. It is sure to become very popular in no time.

With the addition of Writely, Google now has email, calendar, spreadsheet and a web-based word processor, all being essential tools complementing each other.

Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 7 RC1

The First Release Candidate for Internet Explorer 7 or IE7 RC1 has been released by Microsoft, squashing numerous bugs from the Beta 3 version and topping up with several improvements.

According to Microsoft, this release candidate is run mainly to help website developers ensure that their sites are compatible with the coming final release.

I was browsing using IE7 Beta 3 when it crashed and I opted to report that to Microsoft. Then I was directed to download IE7 RC1; that’s how I came to know about it. It is purported to be more stable, so I downloaded it straightaway.

IE7 has been completely rebuilt from IE6 which came out in 2001 and has not been significantly updated. This version 7 gives tabbed browsing to compete with Mozilla Firefox, together with anti-spoofing and anti-phishing protection, a search box with several search engines to choose from, and also support for RSS feeds.

Enhancements include a simpler user interface, customizable search box and an improvement in how favorites are organized.

Another big change is the addition of new Web technologies that have surfaced since five years ago, notably Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) 2.1. Microsoft’s statement announcing the release said that more than 200 behavioral changes have been made to CSS between Beta 3 and RC 1.

Microsoft is offering the Internet Explorer Readiness Toolkit, which provides a developer checklist, testing guidance, and links to resources such as technical articles and helpful blog posts to website developers.

The other offering is the Internet Explorer Compatibility Evaluator, which analyzes the underlying code of various websites and highlights necessary changes to make the site fully compatible with the different versions of Internet Explorer.

With all these done, you can be almost sure of a pleasant and most comfortable experience in the use of Internet Explorer 7.

An excellent way to earn extra money

I came across a short and sweet article showing the way to work at home and make extra money without having to foot out any cash. To share it with you, I have reproduced the informative article here:

Let Me Show You How I Make A Living Online by: Jonathan Schummer

Hello Friend,

After hundreds of hours of searching the internet, I finally found a way to make a steady income from home. And all I do is give my opinion! Now I would like to share this opportunity with you.
First, signing up is completely free and you never have to pay a cent after you sign up. It is completely risk-free!

Let me tell you about my typical day:
I wake up every morning, not when my alarm goes off, but when I am done sleeping. I make myself breakfast, enjoy a cup of coffee, then spend 2-3 hours on the internet filling out surveys and participating in focus groups. Then I spend the rest of the day doing whatever I want to do. That's it!

Since I have started this program,I am making more money than I did at my old job and have more time to spend with my family.

If you would like to quit your hourly job, work when you want, and spend more time with your family, I encourage you to visit the site I use to make money daily. It is totally free to sign up and you never have to pay to take a survey or participate in a focus group.

Here is the website:
Again I encourage you to give this a try. I have had great success and I know you will too. If you put in the time to give it a try, I guarantee you will not be dissapointed.

About The Author
Jonathan Schummer
I am just a regular guy who found a way to make great money on the internet and I would like to share it with the world! Again, here is the website I profit from:

Well, this is indeed a wonderful tip. Thank you, Jonathan.

Internet Explorer Comes of Age

A web browser is one of the most commonly used programs in this day and information age. The most popular browser in the world is Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 that comes with Windows.

However, during the past five years since the advent of IE6, a lot of innovations and improvements have been made by competing browsers like Opera, Mozilla Firefox and Crazy Browser.

Internet Explorer is playing catch-up. It has been five long years between IE6 and the coming IE7, so there is a lot of catch-up to do. Nevertheless, it looks like Microsoft is doing it very well.

Three days ago I downloaded the IE7 beta 3 and found it to be wonderfully and pleasantly different from IE6 which I had been using. (They ask for validation of genuine Windows XP.) The first thing I notice is that IE7 beta 3 has a very streamlined layout and you see more of the webpage being viewed.

Also, significant progress is in the offering of tabbed browsing, an ability to accept RSS feeds and the claimed better security when you do e-shopping.

When IE7 opens, your homepage appears in the first tab window. To view another page you click on New Tab button and load the next page, and so on. Each tab page acts like another browser where you can go forward and backwards. The tab can be closed by clicking the X on the side of the tab.

One convenient feature is the Quick Tabs button which opens up a window showing all the open tab pages in thumbnail images. You can click on a thumbnail image to view the full page or you can click on the X to close the tab page.

I find that tabbed browsing increases efficiency and saves time. It enables one to work faster. You can open multiple web pages (about 8 will still be manageable) in a single browser window and view each of them in turn by clicking on the respective tabs. It is like switching between worksheets in Microsoft Excel.

Tabbed browsing facilitates daily tasks, like checking your affiliate earnings from different websites, or accessing several email accounts to check your mail. These websites can be saved in Favorites in separate groups and each group can be opened with all the component websites with one click.

It is also very useful in situations when you are checking prices on different websites, or comparing opinions and various angles in articles on different websites.

It is particularly useful when you surf traffic exchanges to promote your websites. By saving all your traffic exchange programs in one group, they can all be lined up ready with one click on the group and accessed by simply clicking on the respective tabs. Imagine how much time you can save and how much more credits you can chalk up if you line up say 5 or 6 traffic exchanges at one go.

All in all, I would say well done to Microsoft in coming up with IE7 beta 3 which is the final beta before the IE7 product is released. Tabbed browsing is indeed an exhilarating experience.

What every affiliate has to learn to earn big money

There is a hue and cry about how easy it is to carry out a work at home online business using just a computer and Internet connection working on promoting affiliate programs. However, it is not as easy as it seems because you won’t be getting anything big by just promoting the affiliate links. Some people take one to three years to discover that.

What is essential in affiliate marketing is having an opt-in email list. And that is a big hurdle for newbies to cross. Most people have trouble trying to figure out how to build a list as there are so many components to consider, making it rather confusing.

First, one has to figure out what an autoresponder is and what things it can do. One also has to find out how and where to get an autoresponder, which one to use and how much one has to pay for it.

Also, you have to realize the extreme importance of having a list. You also have to be clear on what an opt-in list is and how many people it usually consists of.

Then you worry about how to get subscribers onto your list, how to get a website and how to get traffic to your website. Another important thing you have to learn is how to actually process orders online.

You also have to learn how to do a legal “unsubscribe link” so that people who are not interested can opt out and you will not be accused of spamming. As to the people who opt in, you may have to figure out how many messages you should send to them and how often. Of course, you will also have to figure out what to write to these people who are your prospective customers.

After getting your list you can email them many times to encourage them to look at your products and buy. Chances of sales will be very much higher then, as studies have shown that people usually buy only after six or seven exposures to the ads.

All these are indeed mind boggling to the newbie affiliate program marketer who has not yet built his first list, or those who have tried and failed. That is the main reason why many affiliates are not earning money. By just overcoming this, the money will start rolling in. You should look at the various components as mentioned above and learn about them one by one.

To learn all these, one has to spend some time to look around the Internet with the help of search engines and read the many free articles and free ebooks. However, for those who can afford it and willing to part with some money, it is recommended that you take a look at .

How To Get Started In Google Adsense

There are more than a dozen ways to earn substantial money on the Internet, the most popular being affiliate marketing. However, affiliate marketing is not as straightforward as simply promoting affiliate links on the Internet as it has to involve opt-in email lists and lots of persistence to succeed in any big way.

At the moment there is an easier way to make money on the Internet, that is by publishing Google AdSense on your website or websites. It is by far one of the easiest ways to make money on the Net.

What you do is just copy and paste some javascript codes given by Google onto your web pages and the contextual ads will appear. (You don’t have to know how to read or write javascript, you just copy and paste.) When website visitors click on the ads, you make money.

And the ads are very likely to be clicked because they are contextual, meaning that the Google crawler has sensed the content and given ads that are relevant to the content of the page. That’s why it is called AdSense and it works very well with content-rich web pages.

There’s no necessity to sell or crack your brains. It’s a no-brainer. Google does all the thinking for you. Apart from its simplicity, Google AdSense is a lucrative gold mine. There are many cases of people earning thousands of dollars a month by simply displaying the ads on their websites.

Of course, one has to drive traffic to the websites by the various means such as search engine optimization, links exchanging, classified ads or traffic exchanges. More visitors to your website means more clicks on the ads, which translates into more money to your account.

However, there are several things which have to be considered if you want to fine-tune your AdSense to gain maximum profit, such as choosing to use high-paying keywords and phrases in your content so that the expensive ads will appear. When the more expensive ads appear and are clicked on, you earn more money.

Other things to consider are making the color of the fonts blend with your web page because it has been found to invite more clicks, and placing the ads in positions that are convenient for people to click.

And you can read up all about the subtler points in free e-books on the Internet regarding Google AdSense secrets written by various gurus. As such, if you haven’t got a Google AdSense account yet, I suggest you get one as soon as possible and start raking in the money. Google paid out a total of one billion dollars to AdSense publishers in 2005.

However, some of you may not have your own website. But not to worry, that’s no problem. You can still join in the fray fast to profit from AdSense.

That is because Google has a blogging service called which is completely free to join at . Here you can start a blog on whatever subject you can think of. After you have posted several paragraphs on the subject to create the blog, you can add a couple of related articles from the free article directories, but make sure you credit the authors and let the links remain live.

Then apply for an AdSense account by following the instructions at After a day or so, you will receive an email from Google telling you that your account has been approved. From then Google AdSense ads will be on your blog and the fun of making money begins.
