    I'm the noobie, go easy! (review please)

    Hey everybody,

    I have been laid off since March and in my downtime I have tried a few affiliate niches with no success. I recently discovered proxies and after lurking on the forum for a few weeks I finally created a couple with a few domains I had laying around. They have been running for approx 24 hours and now I have a few questions to ask.

    The sites:
    Dubnut.com
    http://www.swvw.net

    The domains I had lying around. I went with TMZ for the hosting; the very bottom proxy plan they offered just to test out because I have never tried anything like this before. Numerous times my cpanel would go down, and I would get weird bugs while using tools inside of cpanel; connection errors too. The sites would be very very slow to respond and sometimes throw weird cURL errors. What's the best way to find out as soon as possible what hardware I need to be stable and as fast as possible. Obviously dedicated of vps of some sort. I have also purchased an SSL from godaddy, but TMZ is taking there time getting to a helpdesk ticket to get my dedicated IP upgraded.

    I have linkshared with all the links in the footer of the site as far as advertising goes, and submitted to search engines. I had 6 domains lying around, but I am only focusing on two. Dubnut with adsense and swvw for adbrite, adbrite also on proxified pages. I have banned most of the bad country IP blocks and only have traffic from about 12 countries including Iran at #2 in most traffic today. In my first 24 hours my stats are:

    Analytics--
    dubnut.net:

    • 322 Visits


    • 273 Absolute Unique Visitors


    • 888 Pageviews




    swvw.net: (i made an error in the css and the site was down for like 6 hours before I noticed)

    • 167 Visits


    • 146 Absolute Unique Visitors


    • 399Pageviews

    Advertising:

    • Adbrite views: 7556 with zero clicks for .030
    • Adsense only on dubnut: 935impressions, 2clicks - $1.10


    Long story short:
    Whats the best way to determine what type of hardware I may need to upgrade too based upon traffic.
    And am I off to a good start in my first 24 hours of launch? Anything else I might want to do before its to late?

    welcome to NB
    Firstly get a new host, TMZ blows, you can find cheaper VPS's

    Here are some things you need to fix:

    What are you using to block the countries? I must inform you HTACCESS doesn't work properly.. Read my Geo IP lite tutorial
    Block Countries with Geoip Lite (Easiest Way)

    whats up with this robots.txt
    User-agent: *Disallow: /awesome.php
    change it to
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /browse.php
    *I notice you have submitted your proxy to several lists but you forgot the most important ones
    and
    Un-mark the remove scripts option from the admin panel because users might forget to un-mark it and they will assume something is wrong with your proxy when they are unable to browse myspace or facebook.

    *If you are familiar to CSS and php I would suggest you to use phproxy in the future
    *The quick links of your template are not working link them to this:

    Myspace:
    http://www.swvw.net/awesome.php?u=Oi8vd3d3Lm15c3BhY2UuY29t&b=13&f=nore fer
    Facebook: (not working)
    youtube:

    Bebo:

    BTW im getting this error when I try to visit facebook and other sites
    The requested resource could not be loaded. libcurl returned the error:
    couldn't connect to host
    Thats why I must repeat:
    Get a new host, Use phproxy

    Appart from that everything is ok but IMHO change that LOVELY template and get a new host because the response time is very slow.

    Good Luck with your proxies

    PS: your adbrite ads aren't showing so don't expect adbrite earnings yet
    and change your title to something like dubnut.com - Free web based proxy

    Hey Ruben,

    Thanks for the detailed feedback, hopefully you agree with some of my tweaks.

    I agree, any good reliable recommendations? Anything on a 100mb connection?

    Here are some things you need to fix:

    What are you using to block the countries? I must inform you HTACCESS doesn't work properly.. Read my Geo IP lite tutorial
    Block Countries with Geoip Lite (Easiest Way)
    I am using Glypes built in IP Filter, seems to work pretty well. Here is my traffic from yesterday according to analytics.
    Country - Visits - Page Views



    whats up with this robots.txt
    In order to remain being detected as little as possible, the word proxy, and proxies were kept to a minimum and browse.php has been renamed to awesome.php to also remain not being detected as a proxy.

    *I notice you have submitted your proxy to several lists but you forgot the most important ones
    I got tech faq, but I hear as far as the traffic from proxy.org is concerned that it can get you banned from adsense.


    Un-mark the remove scripts option from the admin panel because users might forget to un-mark it and they will assume something is wrong with your proxy when they are unable to browse myspace or facebook.
    Excellent point, I will fix this.


    *If you are familiar to CSS and php I would suggest you to use phproxy in the future
    I'll take a look at it, does it have youtube plugins?


    *The quick links of your template are not working link them to this:

    Myspace:

    Facebook: (not working)
    youtube:
    Bebo:

    Orkut:
    They seem to work for me? Is anybody else having issues with this?

    Read Everything!


    BTW im getting this error when I try to visit facebook and other sites
    Yeah - http://www.netbuilders.org/web-proxies/glype-libcurl-error-11203.html

    Thats why I must repeat:
    Get a new host, Use phproxy
    ok

    Appart from that everything is ok but IMHO change that horrible template and get a new host because the response time is very slow.
    Thanks dude! You really think the template is that bad? lol And I agree on the host.


    Good Luck with your proxies
    TY

    PS: your adbrite ads aren't showing so don't expect adbrite earnings yet
    and change your title to something like dubnut.com - Free web based proxy
    Weird... is this true for anybody else? Adbrite reports Ad zone views

    Oh snap I gotta edit my comments about the template
    sorry

    I am using Glypes built in IP Filter, seems to work pretty well. Here is my traffic from yesterday according to analytics.
    Are you aware you are getting visits from iran?
    adsense pays nothing for their clicks, they consume a huge amount of BW and their visits can get you smart-priced, which means google wont see you as a potential site and will pay less for future clicks.

    In order to remain being detected as little as possible, the word proxy, and proxies were kept to a minimum and browse.php has been renamed to awesome.php to also remain not being detected as a proxy.
    Thats not useful your proxy will still get blocked for many other reasons, I would suggest you to use the word proxy to get targeted ads and use the word "browse" instead of "surf" to avoid those stupid surf school ads.

    I got tech faq, but I hear as far as the traffic from proxy.org is concerned that it can get you banned from adsense.
    Nah urban legend, just get listed for free and thats it no magical robots crawling into your site clicking your ads I think thats pure BS.

    I'll take a look at it, does it have youtube plugins?
    You dont need one, I'm not sure but I think youtube compatibility depends on your host, youtube works on all my proxies and I havent installed any fix whatsoever.

    Thanks dude! You really think the template is that bad? lol And I agree on the host.
    You are welcome and naah I think its lovely
