Latest nofollow stir

After it was announced that nofollow no longer blocks page rank lot's of people made a lot of mess about it. My advice is simple: if its not broken, don't fix it.

Kontera vs Infolinks vs Vibrant Media

I decided to give these networks a shot on some of the sites. They complement adsense very well.

So far Vibrant and Infolinks seem to give highest income at around 35% adsense income level. Kontera is far back with only 15% compared to adsense.

If you want to easilly rise the income on your sites I recommend experimenting with these sites.

More on images in posts

As outlined in previous article, the images are real burried gold, when it comes to search engine traffic.

My latest find is this: alt text doesn't matter that much at all.

What does?


Make sure the filename is made out of your keywords, separated with dashes.

There you go ;)

Images in Posts - The Unrevealed Treasure

Recently I created a site for test where my goal was to include an image in each post. I made 50 posts and got the site indexed. Site started getting some search engine traffic then after 3 weeks explosion happened.

Site suddenly started getting around 1000 visitors per day from Google Images alone.

I've put some Adsense on it to see if that will convert - result is $15 a day :)

Amazing considering the whole site cost around $150 to make.

Bought two sites in foreign language

I have just bought two Turkish sites. I do not speak Turkish so you must be asking why have I bought these sites.

Well first of all they get about 3,00o unique both, 99% being search engine traffic! That's not too bad.

They also rank first page for their keywords. And there are 160million Turks out there. That's a lot of potential.

I am either going to keep them for long term potential or flip them for profit soon. If you have ideas on how to monetize them, shoot :)

Oh and then sites are Komik Sözler and Aşk Sözleri !

Outsource, Outsource and Outsource

Let's face it. A busy netvestor will have a dozen of sites under his belt, and managing them all can be really hard. From reading analytics data, managing adsense and adwords to SEO and marketing, you will be done pretty much for the whole day.

That's where outsourcing comes into play.

You can find very cheap services offered at DigitalPoint and to some extent SitePoint Forums from article writing, link building, web design, site installation etc. The latest deal I got was to install a WordPress blog and write 50 articles about a niche for $200. Those 5o articles will give you unique content for almost two months. And if you did your keyword research well, you can be sure that you traffic will start to climb slowly but steadily. At very least if you are not satisfied with the site you can sell it at the same forums to get you investment back. To sell a site for $200 it will need to make around $0.50 a dey on adsense in average.

Outsourcing prolongs your day from 24h to 48h. Start using it now.
