It is just 20 days to now until the start of the .asia landrush. I have pre-registered a few different domains and if I get any of them I think I could make some money from them down the track. I was a little confused as to exactly how the process works because on the […]

I am totally against people who scrape RSS feeds and publish it on to their own blog, but I had an idea for a niche video blog and I couldn’t be bothered actually finding content and posting it. People have no trouble reposting your YouTube videos as it only increases their page views, so I […]

It is pretty rare to read about internet and affiliate marketing in the Australian media and even rarer to hear about domains. The Sydney Morning Herald has an article on legendary domainer, Rick Schwartz. Yet Schwartz rakes in millions of dollars in annual income from his 6000-odd properties and recently sold one for $US750,000 after […]

I bought a couple of .mobi domains during the domain landrush period. The names aren’t too bad and after seeing this travel site for sale on sitepoint it has given me some motivation to do something with them. I never liked using a mobile phone to browse the internet, but I know it can be […]

Taking advantage of topical news

Creating a site that goes viral is not an easy task. One way is to piggy-back off a topical news story. I have seen this happen a few times recently with some success. Some of you may have heard of Corey Delaney. He is a 16 year old Australian kid who held a party at […]

Last year I wrote about the “page” feature in Facebook. I hadn’t looked at the page since and I now have 92 so called “fans”. I haven’t done anything to promote the page. Perhaps now I might look into it more. The Olympics is 6 months away so it would be nice to get at […]

Taking time off work for the Beijing Olympics

This article in caterersearch.com says that employers should support their employees if they want to take time off for the Olympic games so they can become a volunteer in Beijing. Caterersearch is a UK based website so the view is not surprising with the London games in 2012. “It isn’t just the international chains,” he […]

I don’t read webmaster forums as much as I use to, but I occasionally go back and take a peak at what people are talking about. I had a look at the affiliate marketing section of Webmasterworld the other day and not surprisingly people were bagging CJ. I have never had much luck with Commission […]
