  1. Yesterday
  2. Google seems to do this every year. They release a couple of big updates right before Black Friday. Then usually over the next couple of weeks, they roll 90% of the updates back.
  3. Earlier
  4. Lost about 40% traffic on main site and about 25% on my other. Both separate niches. Ouch. Right before the shopping season to :/
  5. In my opinion, Facebook is just like Google+ on the edge. A little close to collapse
  6. Apparently Blizzard has a big annual convention coming up in a week or two. That is going to be a serious shitstorm. Can't wait.
  7. Having trouble how companies in 2019 are not grasping just how important social media and optics are to their bottom line...
  8. I have a bunch of content like "Best Mouse for World of Warcraft" Mouse and World of Warcraft were just examples, I do not actually have any content targeting that specific keyword. It works really well as long as you actually understand what a gamer would want for the game. Tip: The keyword search volumes are not accurate for trendy keywords like that. Especially if it's a brand new game. The number one result is hXXps://www.armchairempire.com/Reviews/gaming-mouse-reviews/wow SEMRush ~1k reports clicks a month to that page but it's probably more like 20-30k right now due to the release of WOW Classic. With stuff like that, if you know how to bait clicks with the "Click For Price" buttons, you can easily get a 25% CTR with some testing and the EPC (real average earnings per click) is usually like $1. Intitle test reveals there are 13 competing pages directly targeting the keyword. The SEMRush page score is a 56 though, which is quite high. With SEO Quake enabled, I see a DS 12 TF 14 domain in the #7 spot, which is directly targeting the keyword, so it's certainly page-1-able for an individual. The main issue there would be timing and rank transition. It's just too late IMHO, but who knows. I'm sure there's a bunch of sites that will create content for keywords like that since all of Blizzard/Activision games are super popular. I usually go for lesser known games/companies. It would definitely have been worth doing that 4-5 months before the release of WOW Classic. It might be worth it for Bing since you can rank the page instantly by using the Bing Webmaster Tools. Reminder: The intitle test only works if you are on the very last page of the results for that keyword and it doesn't work at all in Bing. If you are not on the last page, Google will display a random number and I have no idea what that indicates. So the keyword: "best mouse for fortnite", there are 58 pages with the keyword in the title, not 158.
  9. Many gaming sites are booming after the recent Core update.
  10. It would be a good time to create pages about how to cancel a Blizzard account or how to cancel a World of Warcraft subscription. Low competition, but right now the searches on those terms and related ones is blowing up. Lol. They fucked up.
  11. I have used both Bitcoin (client request) and PayPal for receiving payments from India. At the time, the way Bitcoin was going up, I was making an extra 30-40% profit on the job. The problem with a lot of merchant services today is they will charge an extra percentage for international payments. Pisses me off. With everything in the financial world so automated and electronic, it really costs them nothing extra to process a payment no matter where it comes from.
  12. I saw a Reddit thread pop up about this a month or so ago, or maybe it was in a Facebook group. They both got flamed pretty hard, deservedly so.
  13. Does anyone have direct experience with accepting payments in India and China? (I'm located in USA). What platform have you used and how user-friendly has it been? Thanks in advance!
  14. I use Dragon Speaking Naturally 13 Premium. That being said, most computers these days have some sort of dictation application that will probably work for your purposes... Open the audio file, the text and dictation, and let the computer talk to itself. You'll need to go back through and edit with most sofware... That's why I like Dragon, it "learns". Also, you can usually find fairly affordable editors for this sort of thing on whatever outsourcing website you like.
  15. I have about 200 hours of audio files that I want to transcribe into text files. Other than sitting for about 2 months listening to them and typing them very badly or getting somebody to do it for me I'm trying to find a program, app. some piece of technical wizardry or a miracle that will enable me to upload an audio file and have it re-purposed as a text file. I thought I'd cracked it with a speech recognition add-on in Google Docs (yes I know I'm a cheapskate) but this no longer seems to exist. Does anybody have any ideas as to how I can find this program or app or miracle? I've tried every sort of search I can manage but have only been able to come up with solutions that are now unavailable, out dated or just plain wrong. I know there will still be a lot of correcting to do with audio to text but it's better than transcribing the whole 200 hours manually.
  16. somehow i stumbled across some 'article' on yahoo that mention patel and herjavec. apparently they are trying to persuade people to be angel investors. something called "angels and entrepreneurs network". anybody else stumble across this? oh man, we have these potentially great investment opportunities and because we already have a ton of money, we are going to let you in on it for a small fee! how awesome are we? instead of taking our own money and investing in these awesome deals and making 1000x, we would rather share with you! arent we sweet? i hope they both die
  17. I am looking to upgrade my website to SSL. I was told that I can do it for free using cPanel. I use GoDaddy for hosting right now, I was wondering if this was possible? I ask because I know that GoDaddy tries to sell SSL pretty hard, so I figured they might stop us from getting it for free if they could.
  18. I'm not really into SEO, but I follow L2inc on YouTube and found this interesting... Can't vouch for their advice but it does sound very 101-ish... And as a consumer, I've definitely clicked on sites that have them specifically because they seem like good sources.
  19. The longer hoomanity persists, the greater our potential to distil retrospect into solootions for problems we ain't even figured exist yet. In my dreams, I would wish to walk out always in a swanky skirt don't get GOBBLED by no super efficient elevator doors. Tellya, you a gal with fashionably allurin' flaps, you don't wanna feel forever at the mercy of no mechanistic PERHAPS. Thing is, we all typin' out on QWERTY keyboards like they the last ansah in dream discourse. But try rollin' back THAT potential mistake in favor of clearly more intooitive solootions, see where you get! We a conflux always of powerful gravitational pulls an' exotically allurin' flights into Forever's beyond. An' less'n we figure the cryogenic Holy Grail scheme of stayin' around longer than our own stoopid teeth, likely we ain't nevah gonna see the troo picture 'bout what works bcs it always troo an' what works bcs it finesses all previously existent exotica to max effect.
  20. Tough to say, but as I get older I'm starting to believe that timing has more to do with success or failure than just about any other single factor. But as pointed out above, FB is pretty entrenched... Usually, real change in dominant corporations has to come not only with sustained negative publicity that users care about, but also powerful attacks on the personal lives of the folks in the C Suite, to keep them off-balance and unable to fight back effectively-- RIM's Blackberry would have stood a much stronger chance against the iPhone if Apple, Google, and Samsung hadn't orchestrated a brilliant (and probably illegal) series of attacks on the personal lives of RIM executives.
  21. Seems to me it was working perfectly.
  22. Problem I have with all this Read Aloud schwango is how it never sounds too zackly like Moi. I tried Dragon Natchrlly Speakin' a while back — an it made evrythin' I said sound like frickin' gibberish. My solootion? Call Granma over. She read so sweet when you were a kid, so why should automation consign her to a lonesum misery existence filled only with tryin' to dig out her teeth from behind the sofa with a spatula? Tellya, fix Granma up with sherry, mebbe a pipe fulla tobacco smells like burned cardigans, an' she will read most anythin' out loud — even porno. "I got plenty empty nests to fill — so for sure I can distinguish my colons from my semicolons!"
  23. So, this is a feature that I've really been looking for in a text editor. It really improves your ability to edit content because if you read it your own writing, you have a tendency to be blind to your own grammar errors. I find that it's a lot easier to fix grammar mistakes, if you listen to the words being spoken back to you. The feature is hidden away under the review ribbon. There are obviously other solutions, but I think it's really nice that it's built right into Microsoft word now.
  24. Look at the categories on Amazon. Those are "niches" of things people are actually buying. Broaden or narrow according to your goals.
  25. If you can publish great content to your networks, you did the right thing. But in my opinion SEO can be very helpful and in many cases useful for your social network.
  26. 1. "Now I promise not to say it was you who told, but who do you know that could use my service? Promise, I will never tell it was you." 2. "A mutual friend, who asked not to be named, referred me to you, said that you need my help also." 3. "No, I won't say who it was, I understand, but would rather lose your business than break my word." After the sale: 4. "No, still can't tell you, but aren't you glad they recommended me? Now, who are you going to recommend, with my same vow of silence?" ....Something like that. Not my original idea, but I've used it with great success for many, many years.... Forgot where I learned it, probably a book or an old Closer... Claude?
  27. I've had GoDaddy do that to me. They're still holding a domain hostage that I forgot to renew. It's been 4 years? That being said, I was wanting to purchase a domain for a client of mine and it was taken. 3 years later, I get an email that the domain is going to become available within a week. They had it listed as 'make an offer'. I looked it up on Who Is and saw that it had expired already. Anyhow, I know some registrars give you like 3 months-ish to get it back at a higher price then it goes back to the normal price. If no one renews it (shows interest) in buying it, they'll usually let go of it. That's what happened with this domain. I bought it at regular price. You can try ICANN, too. I've also used Namecheap with no problems but I'm not sure if they spy and buy, too. Good luck Mike!
