The Last Post

The end came sooner than I thought. SHE found out that I had changed web hosts and it had cost me £36 for the year. SHE had a fit and the bottomline is Adsense or Me and the Kids.

You don't know how tempting that was. But you have to do what's right so I had to choose the kids. It's not their fault. According to HER I'll never get rich online, it's all a big con. To be fair I have tried for months to get Adsense up and running but the traffic thing is always a problem. The earnings are less than impressive so I can't really argue. To make things worse SHE received a cheque from one of the survey companies. My nose was nicely rubbed in it.

So it's time to go, along with the hopes and dreams for the future. I'll end up getting a job, working round the clock until I die. I hope I don't make it to retirement.

Crap Web Hosting

I have spent hours watching videos and reading ebooks to work out how to put a wordpress blog onto all my adsense sites. Theory is done and so onto the practical. Would you believe it - my web hosting package does not support MySQL......

I queried this with my hosts who told me that their 'expert plan' does not include MySQL. However for another large amount of money I can upgrade to have 6 SQL databases on my account. So using my best Queens English I told them where to go.

Now I'm in the market for a new web host. I have found a few but no descision has yet to be made. if anybody has any suggestions or ideas please let me know.

I spoke to one company who told me that my domain name was locked to the other company. What a bloody cheek. I paid for that domain and the buggers have locked it so I'm going to have to go back and get them to release it.

The funny thing is, that this company that is causing me so much trouble heads the top ten list of Web Hosts. Calls itself IX Web Hosting. No recommendation from me.

Adsense back on track

Just today I received an email telling me that my Magic Ad Tool account had been set up. This is supposed to add rotating clickbank advertising to my website pages. We'll have to see if it happens that way.

Hope to get a few more sites up over the weekend. It has been very tought over the past week or so to actually get anything done. Fingers crossed.

A New Website @last

At long last I have managed to set up another 'proper' Adsense website. Okay I know there are a few minor details to be taken care ofbut the main thing is that it is up.

If you want to take a look you will find it at

Please take a look and let me know what you think. Be honest - I can take it! Any suggestions for improvements would be much appreciated.

It's taken much longer than I had hoped but now it's up I'm feeling rather pleased with myself. I might even try another later. Who knows, I might even get the hang of it.

Beta Blogger

I have just upgraded to the new Beta Blogger. It makes customising the blog a bit easier for somebody like me who doesn't have a clue. Okay so the Adsense box doesn't look quiet right yet but I'm working on it. I guess I'll end up choosing a new template in the end but it was fun trying things out.

More Information Overload

More Ideas. More Ebooks. More .pdf files. More time reading and doing sod all else.

I have been considering the best ways and subjects with which to increase content through visitor participation. The most obvious idea that I have read about is the forum method. If I am able to creat such a good site visitors might just be willing to post on a forum. A well used forum would be massive content generation, and hopefully more than a few backlinks if people bookmark it. However at this stage I have my doubts on being able to create anything close to the quality and quantity of some of the sites I have seen. I know you are supposed to start small but it still seems like an over whelming prospect.

The other idea is something like a review site. Each posted review would be an additional page provided self generating fresh content. But having ideas and putting them into practice is two totally different things. There never seems enough time to sit down and put the effort in without somebody looking over your shoulder and criticising me for wasting time on something that does not work.

I know that this will work. I've tried to pick apart the whole concept but it all boils down to the same thing. If I follow the instructions and do the best I can - IT WILL WORK !

Adsense - Really Great Ideas

Amoungst all the ebooks that I have read, I have found some really great ideas. Ideas which I feel would make great adsense sites. I might be wrong of course but I guess I won't know until I've tried. This is where the problem sets in. I am finding it unbelieveably difficult to get even once half decent site up at the moment. It is very frustrating. In amoungst the contents of Joel Comm's Adsense templates is something called HyperVRE. It's brilliant but only if you upgrade to Gold Membership. If you don't, your content is restricted to whatever the software can find on the open net and all the affilliate links belong to somebody else. Damn good marketing ploy but it costs 97 dollars. So trying to save up through the small change to get it.

Bloody hard though.
