Thanks in advance
High quality writer looking for some work. English born and raised, all work will be of a high quality.
I understand how frustrating finding a good writer can be. A few years back when setting up...
Hey, enjoy your time here at NB
Hi, welcome to NetBuilders :)
Welcome to NB!
It's probably a good idea to learn programming. I was considering that a while back but did not end up going very far with it. Instead a kept focusing on content/informative websites.
Nice looking website. I will probably end up eventually adding pictures.
Hey, just looking for some feedback on my most recent website:
Convertible Coffee Table
Thanks in advance,
Hey guys, I'm back after getting rid of everything (sites, domains etc) and having 12 months off.
I'm looking to get back into it and you will probably see me around more often here.
Looking for information based websites, will consider any topic.
Thanks in advance,
Only brought it last month so its nearly new.
Selling for $165
Definitely wordpress. I refused to use nothing but HTML for a long time but it eventually reaches a point where you switch to WP and don't look back. Not to mention its so much work switching all the...
There's a domain that I want and its expiring early next year. Is there some service that will register this domain for me automatically if it is not renewed?
Thanks in advance.
I recently sold a project that I had been working on for 2-3 years and I was a bit reluctant/sad to see it go. However, since then I have started some new sites that are already way more popular than...
10,000 threads and 100,000 posts are just around the corner too. I can't believe how fast this is growing. Great promotion by Will :D
Depending on your niche you could try making some link bait (i.e. content that will naturally attract links) and promote it via social media.
I have no problem with acknowledging where the image came from. Just like if you quote a statistic in an article, you should say where the statistic came from.
I get my images of flickr (search...
Hi, nice design.
I highly recommend reading Seth Godin's book "The Dip".
All of us webmasters are highly enthusiastic about projects when we start them and gradually loose interest. Making...
Freshmag looks more related to tourism than the other design.
I dont really think this change will have much impact. Paid members only have access to a couple more sections but otherwise, most of the forum is still free.
From past experience, changing the design/theme of your site wont have that much of an effect on SERPS if you keep the URL's, content, titles etc the same as they were previously.
I would say registration fee, however you can make it however much you want it to be worth by putting some hard work into developing the site.
Thanks Will, just registered plantpowered.net, shinsplintrecovery.com and marathonsoc.com. Saved myself $2.64 :D
I need 4 125x125 graphics designed for my site.
Must look professional etc.

I want to implement twitter to my website so people can easily retweet etc and I was possibly thinking of replacing the comment feature with one that runs of twitter. Any tips, suggestions, comments,...
I tried that once and created content that I thought would be useful to people. Out of approx 25 articles, got something like 2-3 visits per day from google. If proper research is done, 2-3...
Build a kickass website with awesome content and the links will come automatically.
More work than spamming links everywhere possible? Yes, but the long term results are much more favorable.
Its not often that something like this comes up on NB. I have never planned to sell this website (having owned it for 2-3 years) but have shifted my focus to other projects of mine.
I'm selling a...
Usually if you build a quality website and allow natural link growth to follow, the number of good quality links will outweigh bad quality links so in my view it's nothing to worry about. Even if...

I am looking for a review of everything (i.e. the site in general)- design, layout, colors, writing style,...
Three tools is all I need: Google Search Keyword Tool, Google Analytics and Backlink Watch (although I hardly use Backlink watch anymore :D)
Thanks heaps, sent both of them a PM.
I made a thread over at DP (shown below), anyone have any recommendations?
I currently don;t have a favorite. I really nedd to get some good domains.
Screw adsense, if you have enough traffic sell advertising space directly. Also try out affiliate links.
Lol, those googly eyes are definately not healthy :rofl:
Here is the link: http://dogs.petbetter.com/ - specifically tell me what you think about the cartoon dogs in the header image and how it blends/adds to the site as a whole.
Thanks for your help.
Yeah, your probably right. Instead of going to the hassle of finding VC (i.e. time and opportunity cost), I should probably keep persevering with my site. I am aiming to get it to 10K revenue as...
So you have finished your uni course right?
If this is the case I don't think they would look back over past exams/assignments etc. They do it once when they mark the assignment, find no results...
I am wondering if anyone from NB has experience with obtaining venture capital?
Previously, I have not wanted/believed my project does not require VC, but have come to the conclusion I need to...
I love SEO :D
Cool domain, nice design, a lot of content for 1 day old. Just one thing, should you be careful with duplicate content showing on the numbered pages (1-24) and then in their individual pages?
My websites deserve to be number one. I always make my sites #1 for humans and #2 for SEO. If there is something SEO wise that would increase rankings but be bad for humans I would not do it. Similar...
Its interesting how some sites that are not necessarily crap, but do nothing extraordinary, and end up ranking high in google and making a lot of money.
For example, wiseGEEK: clear answers for...
Many webmasters want to exchange links and very few like to give one way links.
I was thinking about making a subdomain: reviews.example.com.
Therefore, when requesting a link, their link page...
That is an awesome tool. The results from the google column look as if they come from the adwords tool.
Funny tag line too: "Dumb name....Awesome tool"
Unique content is content that can be found no where else on the internet except for your site. There are two ways to create unique content:
1) Doing it yourself
2) Paying someone else to do...
The winner should get their website to PR10 :D
Got 2x PR1's, serps is all that matters to me :D When I start my intensive link building campaign I am sure my results will improve
People that will not bother listening 99.0% :D
My business model is currently 100% advertising.
However, I am thinking of (in the future) to write a few ebooks related to my topic, advertise them through my site and see how the sales go.
Google is always changing the algorithm. Just create a completely "white hat"/innocent/usefull website and the algorithm changes won't affect your site badly or not at all.
Can I take a review copy (not >500 posts by pretty close)
Thanks for the informative post.
In regards to this point:

My portfolio went from around $12,500 to $54,420 overnight. I'm going for the win. Totally awesome game :D
The netbuilders group is not off to a good start :( :D
There is a similar site predicting the traffic of wikipedia articles: wikipredict.com
Thanks for joining the group. Hope to see some more NB's over there :)
Sounds awesome, I would take it.
Although I would rather a job that travels with me (e.g. webmaster). Allowing you to work anywhere in the world.
For those of you who don't know, it is like share trading (with fake money) but it goes by websites alexa ranks.
I used to play it a fair bit but have only just got into it...
My vista is working ok again. Hopefully I won't have any troubles for another few months.
I only spell american now from writing content on my websites :(
Welcome to NB Chris :D
I think this is an important one we must keep in mind as webmasters:
"Selling to people who actually want to hear from you is more effective than interrupting strangers who don't."
lol, thats the most important thing forum needs and we all did not mention it: members :D
I am thinking about uploading an article I just wrote.
they are quite easy to make on paint also :D;)
It's best to do nothing at all. Let google find your site naturally.
90% of my traffic comes from SE's and out of that, 95% comes from google.
Welcome to NB :D
“May the Force be with you.”
Thanks, I figured out the problem, it was something to do with my usb wireless device. I done a system restore and it seemed to fix the problem :)
I have learned over the years that you should never admit to yourself that your goal is to make money.
It takes a little time and patience but once you convince yourself that you are building a...
If you create a good quality website that is google-friendly and SEO has always been easy.
It is only hard for those individuals who are using all the tricky methods that will not be applicable in...
I think it would encourage people to read more/explore the site in more detail/decrease bounce rate (and a lot of other positive stuff) if you moved the article list so it is visible without...
Selling sig link is very different from what it used to be. If they are all in the same niche then you could market it like that and it would probably increase the value.
Otherwise I would...
Was a very productive day today.
- Wrote 4 articles
- Added to a previous article
- Total writing around 4500-5000 words
- Fixed some site linking issues
- Added a sharing and bookmarking...
Thanks, the only programs I need for my websites will be FF and notepad (or equivalent).
I am thinking I have a new favorite song :D
triple j Unearthed - Artist (Play the song streamers- top right player)
Nice template, I really like the circles in the background :)
Will definitely look better once the actual site is published in there.
Could you provide more details about the website and the project in general, this will aid my towards answering your question properly :)
I found the problem, it was the usb wireless thing I was using. Every time I plug in in it BSOD's.
Even without this problem I have to reinstall vista every 2-3 months because the boot files...
I might try Ubuntu if Mac is not possible to install.
My computer is stuffed and have no clue how to fix it :mad:
Made a post here: Vista Error - Vista Forums
Does anyone know how to fix this issue? (thought I may as well ask)
A moderator must feel no remorse. Deleting posts when necessary, banning members when necessary and warning people about their behavior when necessary.

Yeah, I was thinking that too. You need to squint to make out the cat atm :D
I don't like CMS's so I will be using .shtml files, a few html includes and notepad :)
I thinking about how boring uni is :(
Is this the domain? NB IT IS .COM
Net Builders Internet Technology Information Site could be a potential use :D
Hi and welcome to the forum. Consider posting your website in the review section. By learning and engaging with fellow NB's, your site will be earning :money: in no time :)
We should have a netbuilders-coordinated spam session to test this theory out on DP :punk: :D
With the current logo (on all sites) there is the outline of a cat in the image. I was thinking removing the lettering and having a different outline for each (e.g. a dog in dogs, bird in birds etc.)...
My adsense earning have been very stable for the last 4 years. Consistently $0 :D
When they sell their service, promoting it as 100% uptime, they should stay true to their word.
Even 99% uptime is bad to some extent. This means that your website will be down for 3-4 days per...
Going by what I pay for internet (per Mbit), it would cost me around $4000 to get that speed :eek:.
"Nothing interferes with my concentration. You could put on an orgy in my office and I wouldn't look up. Well, maybe once."
If we do the opposite of everything DP does we can't go wrong :D
Impressive, 167 followers in 1 day :eek:
Yes, it could be positive for the forum, however we don't want a bunch of people signing up here, making as many spam posts as possible just to earn a few dollars.
Let us know how it goes. Never really had to use this for myself but I consider myself lucky.
Today was not a very productive day for me :(
No articles written
Did not develop any of the 10 new domains I have
Although I did run 10k after not eating properly all day (was messed up by the...
I attached my linking structure below.
- 3 levels- home, categories, articles
- home links to 10 newest articles + each of the category pages
- categories link to articles
Your right. I have a large sum on money being transferred to namecheap as we speak. I will register as much as possible and try to make them based around my own interests so I am motivated to work on...
The main resource you need is time.
If you don't have time to post at least 25 posts per day on top of your usual website activities then you should not start a forum.
In the first few months...
I'm not a fan on CMS's so I just use normal html and edit my pages with notepad.
With a few includes on the page, it allows me to change the site pages simultaneously.
Who else prefers pure...
lol, my bad. iTrader is when there is a buyer and seller. Not really any of the two in this thread.
Searching for the actual domain would be minimal.
But if it was turned into a decent website, it would be a kick-ass domain and easy to remember (only 3 characters after main keyword).
1) Try to contact them being nice (to the websites email address)
2) Look up whois and try to contact them using that info (yes, even calling)
3) If no response after 48 hours send them a DMCA...
Do you mean a contest for the people who get the most itrader? Could lead to some spam in the marketplace but if everyone plays by the rules then this contest might be good.
Thought this article was cool:
A Twitter first: NASA astronaut sends first tweet from space
You are able to back up the data so it is just as secure (have not heard of this happening to anyone)
And with the FF toolbar it is just the same as having bookmarks in FF (there is a delicious...
That's what drove me away from DP and similarly what drove me away from WTF. That is why NB is so awesome (from my pov).
That idea could work.
Another idea would be to leave it as it is, but...
Seems to be back up and working now :)
You could sign up a new account and use a proxy. This way they will not detect you. Even after I got my account back after being banned I chose only to use it for BST- I did not go back because of...
I use namecheap only (used godaddy once and hated it).
I am thinking how productive my day was today and the 10km run I am doing at 5AM tomorrow morning :D
Unlucky, how long does the ban last for? We will keep you company over here at NB until you work things out :)
Some good info there even though its from 2006. Some of the points are irrelevant now but most of them are still relevant.
Check out Will Reynolds- I like his stuff much better than Matt Cutts.
Cool, Lucky you :D
I am a member there but it never really grabbed my attention. I've heard that it's pretty much dead now anyway.
Thanks Will, I have no more reason to post in this thread because I believe you will make the right decision to fix this issue :D
It was a long time ago, was it just in the games section.
It did not worry me loosing those posts anyway, otherwise i would not have suggested the idea.
Really :confused: Did you not post once in GC the whole time you were there?
We're not fighting. I just thanked homebiz in my last post and suggested we keep it as a 'constructive discussion' (you might not have seen my post before I posted it) :)
Yeah my post count went from around 1500 --> 700 (everyone lost a lot of posts) I knew that was going to happen when I suggested the idea to Colleen. I must admit I posted A LOT in those crappy game...
I have 7-10 which I intend to develop into high quality sites(it is in my niche) the rest I would probably develop something ordinary on them and sit on it for a few years and maybe sell some/keep...

I think that someone selling a website with 0 iTrader and 1 post should be avoided. I don't want to...
I agree, I try to use the strong tag in my articles to enhance the friendliness to the user. However I do not think bolded hyperlinks will give you a boost.
Yes, you are correct. However, it is also out of the members interest to make NB the best webmaster forum on the net. Obviously, some members here dislike general chat because it seems spammy/useless...
When you find a really good keyword, should you go ahead and register all possible/good domains?
e.g. running(keyword).com, webmaster(keyword).com, internet(keyword).com, dog(keyword).com.
:o I have posts than you and I have only been here a short while- not that it means anything. It just means I spend more time here than you (im at uni what can you expect?) but I actually prefer...
That's why I like delicious. It is actually something useful. You can be as sociable as you want or take the other extreme and just use it as a bookmarking tool.
Option 2 would be really bad for the forum and would definitely discourage a lot of users, especially newbies. From their point of view it would be a giant mess with posts everywhere. They would not...
Do It! It's Awesome. :thumbsup:
I am having a productive day today. It is only 2PM and I have already:

- Completed two articles, another on the way
- Made $70 (selling product)
- Registered two domains (one long...
Will should participate in the next SEO contest and we should make the 1st prize netbuilders.org :D That would be interesting.
Great Post, I agree with what you are saying here.
I think we should try option 1 first and if nothing changes in 2-3 months then we should use option 2 as a backup.
Congrats :D I am about to reach 300.
That's a nice site. I think now you have to work on adding more reviews. You could have a section for coupons/discounts too.
Good luck with your site :)
I think we should stop creating new forums for general chat :D
We already have general chat and NB lounge which are very similar :)
I think they look equally awesome :)
It's hard to tell how good the blue one is without seeing the rest of the design.
Great idea, as long it is not in any of my niches :D
An idea would be to pick a 2 worded keyword and to register your domain has to be (keyword1)(keyword2)(number).com. For example, "webmaster...
There will be no more 10-posters now that the referral content has finished.
Maybe offer a lower price or ask if you could negotiate a price that all parties will be happy with.
Just wondering if there will be another SEO contest after the current one.
I would love to be able to participate (not going to join current one because it's already half over)

I had no idea there were two types but the one I am looking it is a human readable one. I might hold off for a while as I believe my websites are well-designed.
Ok, I have never done this in the past but someone put it to me like this: (from the perspective of developing website architecture i.e. flow of PR etc.)
So how do I go about creating one?
I have always considered this an issue for my websites and have only just found a solution to the answer. It is extremely easy and FREE!
It is so simple that I can tell you how to do it in a...

Good advice for newbies :)
Well I'm not theoretically delicious but I have just signed up for delicious.com :D
I have installed the FF plugin and everything and I only have one thing to say, it is AWESOME :woot:
Good decision Will :D
Congratulations to all prize winners.
Just requested to join the group. Hopefully it is as awesome and the rest of the forum :D
:eek: My backups are not even compressed :D
I have seen your thread at DP requesting to buy sites and would definitely want to be at that stage eventually :)

Recently when I was doing a backup of one of my sites, I took the effort to see how big the file was. It was only 778kb.
I thought to myself: All this work and only 778kb, that can be downloaded...
“Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.”
I think it has great usability and is an attractive site. The usability is much better than scrolling through lots of entries at DP. I would use it if spending in excess of $100 for a logo.
That is a really nice design, everything is simple and there is no crap on the page.
I like how the proxies are displayed in the table thing and it allows you to scroll down.
Will look forward...
I never search with quotes. Does that make me unwebmasterish? :(
Thanks, not many people search for this term (even without quotes :p) so I will use the one without "a".
I'm targeting everyone :D because that = more :money: (lol, I'll never get anywhere with that attitude :doh:)
I have decided to mainly target "Aquarium" for now. I will target the other term at...

I will take one of your 500 packages. Please send payment details.
This is an interesting tool but you need to be getting a lot of traffic to be able to compare your site with others. NB doesn't even come up :(
New coupon is: FLORESCENCE
Price goes from $9.69 to $8.81.
That is an interesting idea, but I still believe a lot of the content would overlap.
