  1. Hannity...

    I have to disagree with your disagreement. The majority of the fact-checking sites out there find that she lies quite a bit. And when she doesn't lie, she exaggerates right to the edge of it. Did you catch her episode where they had gotten Trump's tax returns and teased it for like 45 minutes? Turned out they had the front page of a single year's tax returns, which tells you almost nothing about a person's finances, especially a business owner.
  2. Star Trek: Discovery | Official Trailer [HD] | Netflix

    I thought the first 2 episodes were pretty shitty. The show might get better, but there is no way in hell I'm going to pay for access to find out.
  3. Why do people fail?

    It has been said in this thread quite a bit, but I do think expectations and attitude are the big reasons people fail. They think the work is going to be easy and the minute they realize otherwise, their effort actually decreases instead of increasing. It sounds crazy, but I have seen it happen over and over. Or they just give up. Most don't give up, although they should. They instead continue to limp along not making any money for months or even years. They hang out on forums like this and think that talking about working online counts as actually doing work. Or worse, they hangout on really shitty forums like Warrior Forum (sorry, but that place is nowhere near what it once was) and actually have the nerve to offer advice to people on how to make money online.
  4. Like Claude said, it depends on what you are making them uncomfortable about. If I'm a roofer and at a home where the roof is on the verge of collapse, yeah, I'd make the homeowner uncomfortable about not doing something about it. At the same time, I'm not going to say things like, "I have never replaced a roof like yours. I think I can probably figure it out though." Now they are uncomfortable about their roof situation, but also uncomfortable that I am the right person to remedy it.
  5. How can you make $100 a day?

    I have a couple of pretty responsive email lists in a few different niches. They are not huge lists, but sizable. I would look around at products and services I have been using recently but have never promoted to one or more of those lists (and of course makes sense for the niche). Then I'd write up a "why you need this" or "features and benefits" type of article for one or more of those products and post them on the appropriate website of mine. Next a teaser email would be sent out to the appropriate lists. If one of those services happens to be a recurring service where I can collect a commission month after month, even better.
  6. Auto-playing videos in SERPs

    I am glad they are muted, but.... It would be kind of fun if they weren't. There could be some interesting combinations with search terms and videos that might be entertaining to match in a Google bomb campaign.
  7. Pretty interesting. Someone could start one of those mastermind groups really easily with this feature. Could also sell membership into a special club or training. Hmmm....
  8. Clubs

    That is an awesome feature. I hope a few people put it to good use. If done right, I could see it really help the forum grow.
  9. I'm not sure how many people in here use AdSense, or if anyone does. If anyone does utilize AdSense, have you seen a drop-off in CPC? I'm not talking a small variation. I mean a drop of like 50% or more. Looks like it started between the 5th and 6th of this month. I don't do a lot with AdSense, but I have never seen a drop like this. It is just the earnings per click. Traffic and clicks are pretty steady. Not sure if Google made some change to how much advertisers pay or if something changed with the ads displaying on my sites. I find it hard to believe it has anything to do with the ads. I'm seeing the same drop across 4 websites that are in completely unrelated niches.
  10. Free Thank's Smiley

    Yeah, I've seen your posts in there. Basically just more off topic junk. Thanks, but no thanks. (pun was not intended)
  11. Content Length

    I understand that from a writer's perspective, but my question was about how search engines may perceive it, and more to the point, why people seem to insist that search engines care about how long an article is. @Wunderkind did a great job answering what I was looking for.
  12. Content Length

    You clearly read nothing in this thread. But hey, you got that signature link, so good job.
  13. This is what I would do. I doubt there are many membership site owner specific communities out there.
  14. Content Length

    Thank you both. Exactly the kind of discussion/debate I was looking for. I never thought about the connection between Google going to (not provided) in Google Analytics and the rise of this content length matters thing, but @Wunderkind you are right about the timing of them. And now that you mention it, you are right about most of them talking about their traffic increasing versus rankings for their target keyword(s). @BIG Mike yes, when writers are charging per word, I can see why some of them would want people to believe that Google likes longer content. I wonder how many of them who routinely do work for SEOs and people that think they know SEO have seen their average article word count go up on orders over the past few years? I also wonder how many of them try to use this myth with customers to upsell them to larger orders? Not trying to bash writers, btw. I know most are great, but there are unscrupulous members in every industry.
  15. Edit to Reputation System

    Makes sense. I PM'd Mike about this a month ago, so if anyone is ticked about the change, you can blame me.
