Thanks for the kind words. Glad if it can help!
I think its from Twitart.
Good job dude. ;)
Thank you. Always great to see that people appreciate your work.
By the way, the guide isn't done, more parts are on the way. ;)

This kind of football.
At the moment, 2. One is still missing some content.
@Farrhad: Nice new under construction page. ;)
It's a nice strategy, they try to get people interested in it for their design. Maybe it will work, maybe not.
And btw, the site without the background image kind of sucks. :P
Yes, getting indexed is a thing that most people don't even have to care about. And it's quite easy to rank well for your site's name, but most people won't search for that.

Hey, welcome to WebmasterPeers. Hope you stick around. ;)
I think I would buy the.org before the .info and .biz extensions (if I had to...).
Actually, I am saving for it since a couple of weeks now. I want it, badly! :P
:P I'm doing my best.
Is there a risk for plugins compatibility?
Again, it's not just about contests here, and I believe that Simon has a good point : the design and postion of your feed button accounts for many suscriptions (or not!)
Nice, but are you the maker of all the themes you posted so far or are they just great finds?
And welcome to WMP. ;)
BTW, http://whois.domaintools.com/ is perfect for that purpose. (And you can check if a particular domain name is already registered)
Yes, this is a very normal phenomeon. Google needs time to determine the revelancy of your page (and all the other factors) and it usually takes may months, if not a year to 'stabilize'. And, most...

You di an excellent job Adrian! I especially love the footer, it looks great.
Glad you liked it man. ;)
As I said, a lot stuff in it is already known by most people, but it still has plenty of helpful content too.
But you, as a woman, don't you feel offended?
Yes I know, but some time ago, online marketing was still clean from such methods. :|

Doesn't work for me, it gives me a normal search result page. ?
I feel like I said it many times before, but what makes an article unique is the way you write it! Actually, almost anything you write and that you seriously care about will be unique.
I would have been too. But how can he get frustrated for a little bug in the site's script???
Those are the same reasons why I also prefer to write in the evening. In fact, it would be better if I'd get to sleep during the day and to be 'active' when everyone else is sleeping! :P
That's the problem here, auto-DMs aren't personnal at all! If at least they were written differently for some of the followers, that would be better.
I reckon that both Marcell and Sneakyheathen are right. 125x125ads usually are much more stylish than Google Ads anyway... so there isn't much a problem if you add them on your blog early.
Great post Corey.
This is a good idea as long as you keep your posts related to a certain niche (I'm assuming that you are not going to write on any topic; you've got to devellop some...
I runned a small search and fount out that those 404 pages were very inspirationnal:
Now that's a good idea.
At the moment, you can't use .tel for sites otherthan telecommunications-related ones.
It's true! I didn't noticed it before. Very interesting concept for that part http://www.bing.com/images/search?

0_o This program looks pretty interesting, it might just make me switch back to Firefox if it's worth it.
Did anyone tried it yet?
Both gloson and Josh already listed them, but my favorites sites for inspiration are hongkiat.com and Smashingmagazine.com
I did some reserach and those appears to be free services for selling your domains.
You got an entire wall for this purpose? You should take a picture so we see how it looks like. :P
Err... that looks so discusting!
Well, it's the intent of the picture. ;)
Personally, I see no problem in buying an anual plan if you know that the host is reliable. Plus you save, so where's the harm in it?
Sorry, I don't know much about domains, what's the difference between a premiuim and a normal domain?
Most wikis and non lucrative organisation (Red-Cross, Amnisty International, Greenpeace, etc.)
How many good sites do you see running on .tel extension?
Yes, But there are limits too. Some people tend to add too much 'personnal' info; and in situations like these, too much is often worse than not enough.
You think that .tel domains are more innovative that .org? And .info? .tv, .biz, etc.
(In fact, anything but .tel!)
Hi G, welcome to WMP! You'll love this place. ;)
Your link doesn't give an entry in Wikipedia. Is that what rou are speaking of? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098084/ ;)
... Yeah, right.
To tell the truth, I do not give much of a damn about your article titles. Do as you want. ;)
(And please don't write PMs to tell me that I look pissed.:sarcastic: )
That is not what I meant. (I've read both of your posts... I know it's about Internet Vickings).
I fully understand the intent of your book and it is normal to add original titles in it, but:
Indeed. I've been using it alot since I bought it a month ago, it as been of a great help. And also, it is strategically positioned behind my restroom's door, so I always see it. :P
Probably. :P (Just so you know, you already said that we had to find the domain on our own in the first post.)
I think Kaith doesn't shareyour point of view.
I get your point, yah maybe it would be boring, but don't you want to look as much professional as possible?
For me, an about page is a thing you should spend some tim on it to make it best as possible. Often, this is the one of the first page I visit on almost any website.
It should be as much, if not...
You might want to avoid GoDaddy for hosting your blog, expecially since their prices are hich for what they offer and that their support isn't one of the most appreciated on earth. That is why you...
What do I think of it? Another flopp fom Micro$oft. :|
The Search Engine race is already over; how can they invets milion of dollars in a new website when they know they'll be crushed by Google?
Here's the link to MailChimp.
It's free when you have under 100 suscribers, after that the pricing similar with Aweber.
Mostly Retro games, and sometime the Red Square Game.
I prefer to play games on my console.
As many said before, quality baclinks is the key.
And sory to ask again, but your blog doesn't show as a PR1 to me yet.
Harry Potter, that movie scared the crap out of me.
One name: Frank Kern. :P
Well, you've got to be ready to make the big jump... and to cover the initial expenses first. But then, cha-ching!
It's a good start! However, maybe you'll want to make your titles a bit simplier for the next chapters... ;)
True. I guess servers aren't as much mobile than a laptop. :P
As Josh said, watch the video.
And as from anything from Google, I don't think Wave will disappoint its users, at least not as much than Cuil did (well, that's what Farrhad said :P).
As I said before, I'm using a whiteboard.
Well, if that was your goal, you've reach it all right. :P
Other thing, the search bar is a bit hard to find...
Indeed, I reckon it could be useful to test our own sites at a fixed interval of time.
By the way, I just got 4.5 seconds for WMP.:D
That might interest you. ;)
You'll want to advertise it directly on your site as John Chow does, but I suggest you to offer a freebie before so that people can have an idea of what they're buying. ;)
Nah it has nothing to do with Gmail.
Think of it as a Facebook/Gmail/Google Maps/IM mixed together. ;)
That's exactly what I meant. In fact if you mispell something, before you correct it other people will probably see your mistake before you, and you'll be leaving a bad impression.
That is not a service supported by Twitter, TweetLater is an independant company.
Same here. And since I don't use Twitter that much, I don't feel the use of an application right now. :P
Yes, but aren't they be moderated afterward all the same? Personally, when I make a comment, I don't care very much if it doesn't show up immediately.
Nope not at all, actually, I don't use my whiteboard only for that purpose, I really write ANYTHING that crosses my mind on it; only there's an area for my online 'life' on it. :P
Well it is not THAT bad, it's just that the main colors of your theme are green and gray, so the orange box looks a bit lost. Honestly, I don't know what you can do to make it bette, so I guess...
Hey I was just 'sharing my thoughts on this'. Aweber also let its users choose from a great amount of template for the emails. Also it has support and you are sure that your message is going to get...
Indeed, but surely there must be a way to block all DMs?! I can't believe they aren't doing anything about this (I mean, the Twitter HQ).
And I did not know that TwitterLater was responsible for...
Okay I understand.
And just to reiterate my first post, if everyoby's using a host in particular, I think it's success is likely to remain the same for the years to come. That's why there isn't...
Everything. The home page, the wall... nothing was left untouched. :|
No. What kind of drug is that?
Do you like sarcasm?
No≤. I hate them and I don't send any.
Gloson, your link only works for Tweet Later suscribers, how do we know if the people DMing us are using this bot?
True, but sometime, even though the post is short, you just want it to 'fit' with the rest of the posts on your homepage (let's say that all of the other articles only show the first 100 words of the...
Isn't that what you said in your first post? :S
Because, once again, that implies complex manoeuvres, and not everyone is comfortable with it. Beside, I reckon that you can do much more things with Aweber than a script.
And if you want a free...
Well, if I had joined FB in the last month or so, I would have met great difficulties understanding the complex thing it has become today. Luckily, I joined before everything was all screwed up; so I...
In which way is it harder to manage a server once it is properly set-up? I mean, aside for keeping sure it's plugged, I don't know what can be tough to handle once everything is well installed.
Ouch, that sucks.
In the end, did he pay you for the design or (since he prefered using a free one) not?
And what is "graphic wizardry" anyway?!
If I had the techniqual knowledge, I would love setting up my own servers (I could have complete power over my site). Unfortunately, I don't so I guess I'll go with number 2. :P
Oh and btw, I...
Well, usually, the host everyone's using is considered as reliable you know, :P but I would go with the cheapest option I guess (doesn't mean I'm ready to register with any given host though).
For me it's Facebook. It's only my favorite because except for Twitter, it's the only social site I am on. And today, FB is worse than it used to be.
Nice, me too. ;)
That's what I understood, no problem. ;)
Also I just noticed that the main content 'box' (if we can call it this way) isn't aligned with the header of your blog. is this wanted?
Lol, please don't take over his thread.
If you want to advertise your services, it would be much more appropriate to start your own thread about it. :P
Hey Enk! Long time no see... welcome back. ;)
Yes, that may be true for Google, but I know as a matter of fact that both Yahoo and mostly MSN still relly on meta tags.
Great post on your blog...
As I said in the other thread, I think it is great and I love the way your articles are displayed on your homepage, especially with the images on the right. (Do you make them yourself?:P)
Exact same thing here. Once, I bought two domains, one linked to a wordpress blog and the other to a Joomla established site. The 2nd one was a pain and didn't last long. :P
Yeah, it's called Paint. Ever heard of it? :P
He's speaking of the 'read more' link itself below an article on the homepage of almost any blog. That's why I find it ridiculous when he says it affects your ranking.
Gaya'S site is great, you know about him but he deserves a mention I believe.
You could have tried my link though.
Lol, I confounded with the one you made with Alex! I remembered finding Michael's blog shortly after yours. My bad. :embarrassed: :P
Most of the time yes. But again it depends on how targeted your site is (Brandon said his was) and what you offer to your visitors, even if they are a few. With a little work, you can successfully...
Yes I noticed that when I went to his site after I read your interview with him on Teenius. It's very clever, so much indeed that many people copied his idea (or did he himself from someone else?).
It is. I've read the ebook and it even offers us to share p0rn (aside from illegally downloaded albums and movies). Talk about something ethic.
However the method described in there might work if...
Probably a way to make more threads.
Nah, seriously, I get the feeling that akira is saying that the 'read more' link afffects your site's appearence to a Search Engine's eyes... and I...
Simon is right, actually I didn't tought of it before, but you can add much more articles on your homepage if your theme is able to show two on the same line (like Simon's).
And it's very neat. :P
Interesting way of keeping tack of your ideas!;)
Personally I have a white board and I write everything that crosses my mind on it. Just as good in my opinion.
Well obviously you don't have any experience about Paid To Review websites. I never seen one who wasn't asking for your traffic details.
Try reading the FAQ of those sites next time.
Yes, probably. But even Chrome had (and still has) a lot of bugs, so I expect the same from Wave.
And when you say 'from scratch', are you making logos and banners too?
Do you have examples of your previous work?
As Sneakyheathen said, even if it is about something I like, I am not interested in receiving stuff in my inbox that I did not ask for. Besides, most of the time, it's crap... that's why it's called...
It isn't. Simon's theme is custom made from http://kolakube.com .
In my opinions, that all depends on the product itself, how ell it sells and what's the demand for it. A 75% commission on a 5$ item isn't alot, especially in a niche were there are few buyers.
Congrats on the new design Simon. ;)
The least we can say is that it's very 'fresh'! :P
The orange suscribtion section doesn't fit very much with the theme when it comes to color, but apart from...

Well, based on my experience as a receiver of email like that, I never open them and they go straight in the trash can. I hate spamming and I don't kno why people waste their time doing so.

Most of what Josh said is true and I share his opinion.
Although, I think it's a ggod thing to elaborate and devellop ideas with people we can trust, even if they already are successful online....

This might not work with every one,...

That would fall under the 'spam' category. Have you got any success with this?

I think that bloggers should wait a little before trying to monetize their new site.

I don't know how they come up with that number.

Nah seriously, I doubt that programs such as DreamWeaver (and Frontpage) will ever cause hand coding's doom. Mostly because they aren't that much accurate yet...
I guess link love combined with a comment (or more) is enough. Plus, you'll probably get the favor back.
2 new ones that are really great,
I have to agree with this one.
I tried using Adsense for 2 months on one of my websites (the site doesn't exist anymore) and generated only 4$ from it. So I decided that Google's Ads weren't worth...
To make the most profit out of your domains, I would avoid forums such as DP and Warrior and use premium domain listing sites instead.
For me , that would be .museum
I don't know what you don't understand. All he says is that you will get the same content that tere already is on the website, so it won't be unique from the moment of his first sale.
'I opinion' that I never heard of that before (Google's hate toward read more links). Do you mind sharing your source?
It's scary to see how stubborned you are.
Are you some kind of God? Then who are you to say stuff like that...
Lol, (Just had a mental picture of you writing an e-mail to Google...

It's not because you are 'Online' you don't have to know how and speak (and type) well... you will have to go through some 'relations' all the same, and if you can't convince your client that you...
Auctions (do I really need to write Ebay as an example?)
Sorry, but even if this thread is not about monetizing a website, shouldn't it go in the Monetizing section?
Too less and it will look as if you don't have nothing to say.
Too much and you get something like this: http://www.bluehatseo.com/
So I would say 4 or 5.
True, but I don't have the power to do that in here. You should have noticed Farrhad, not me (Don't worry, I'll handle it).
You better be kidding.
1) The sandbox is a term used the represent Google's dumpster.
2)In fact, no one knows if it exists. It just the fact that some site which were banned from Google's search...

Funny your asking this because they had a review of some platforms for Twitter in my journal. I found the article back and, aside from twhirl, there was:
Don't you feel like you just broke the atmosphere here? No offence but please make your posts more detailed, or they might 'magically' disappear.

No. And if you site normallys gets 1 or 2 backlinks per week and then mysteriously get a thousand within a few hours, your site WILL get banned.
I know, you'll argue back saying it's a good method...

Wow, this software looks great, at least better than the option built-in in Live Messenger. You may thank Sundar on my behalf. ;)
Lol, you've gotta be kidding me right? As if I don't know that...
Thanks! Glad you like them. And as I can see, they're already online. ;)
I sent you the download details in a OM. There's a png and psd version of each file. I haven't watermarked anything because I did not feel the necessity to do so (I guess I can trust you. ;)).
A short domain is harder to get than it used to be. I think it might just be as good to find a longer but more original domain.
And if you manage to add keywords in it, it's perfect.
