KMRock reacted to themdno in YouTube Opens Partner Program to Everyone
I think this is great, and I'm having a lot of fun producing all kinds of new content to be monetized. I've already gotten some good results, but there is so much room for improvement. I love making videos, so to get paid for it, is a huge bonus. I could make videos for free, and still be having a great time.
KMRock reacted to bigbigfan in Is Apple buying Twitter?
I sincerely hope Apple buys Twitter, it would be a great match. I don't think the ownership of Twitter will accept any offer that is even remotely reasonable, they will hold on until a price that is 10x too big is offered and that will be the deal breaker, imo. Current management at Twitter is extremely greedy according to many, even if they don't make very much from Twitter.
The value in Twitter is it's heavy use by celebrities, only Facebook and Twitter get tons of free advertising on every website and only Twitter can be bought so yes, Apple, get it done!
KMRock reacted to johnthomas1433 in Making money from forums?
Its not just the traffic, but rather the quality of the traffic, and your niche. I used to make more than $500 a month from a blog with less than 100 unique visits every day. It mostly depends on your niche. The better your niche and keywords, higher the pay rate per ad.
KMRock reacted to bigbigfan in Link building
I have a sneaky suspicion that browser bookmarks are a solid ranking tool once again, especially if bookmarked in Chrome. When someone cares enough about your site to bookmark it they essentially are telling Google they like it and as with all data available Google will be gathering this information. It wouldn't make sense to ignore it, especially since most SEO's don't spend any time actively collecting bookmarks.

Great post, Nathan, it makes me want to launch yet another site
I look at websites in a different light today than I did when starting out over a decade ago. Back then I thought if I built it people would come, and they did but not nearly as much as I'd hoped and certainly not enough for the time I put in. Today I look at websites as if they were tools, tools to help me get my message out wether it be for money or not.
If you own a site that sells a product it's so much easier to get traffic to that site if you can leverage your other websites and so those other sites become tools. If you have a forum for example you can leverage that to let visitors know about your other site. If you own a link directory you can prominently feature your other site in the directory. Toplist, other related sites, newsletters, social profiles... all of these are potential tools to help promote your website.
If you can't improve your website any further then improve the tools you use to promote it and keep moving forward.
KMRock reacted to Victor Leigh in Best free web hosts...? Are there?
If you are in this game for the long term, you should not be looking at free hosts at all. You should get your own vps, set up your own control panel and create little sites for testing purposes. We are not talking about hundreds of dollars per month. Just 20usd per month is good enough to get a reasonably-sized vps. Myself, I pay about 20usd per month for a cloud server and I get 2Gb ram and 80Gb space with 8Tb bandwidth. Fair price?
KMRock got a reaction from DarkGizmo in How often and how much do you post on your own forum?
The admin/owner must be active on smaller forums especially, but I think admin activity is crucial to keeping the forum activity going. The more the admin posts the more activity there will be.
KMRock reacted to bigbigfan in Backlink Variation
Right. The bottom line in protecting your site is to never allow a link to be made by someone else that doesn't carry nofollow. Google has stated time and time again that they don't want to see user generated links because these tend to be spammy and reflect badly upon both sites.
I set my forums up to automatically apply nofollow to any extrenal link and then I can later review links and whitelist those I feel are quality sites. It's worked so far. I also try to find alternate ways of promoting member interests, sometimes without them even knowing I've done it.

KMRock reacted to Jessi in How much content before a web site is not considered thin?
What do ads have to do with it?
With or without ads, a site can be filled with content...or no content at all. Most people aren't talking about ad placement when they're asking about whether a site is thin or not.
KMRock reacted to machtm in Is Apple buying Twitter?
You are definitely right about major corporations being innovative - the problem I find when a company is purchased by a much larger one is support.... Support processes and procedures usually become lengthy and it's just difficult to get through to them. right now if you are advertising in twitter, you are spending a decent amount of money and they love talking to ya!
KMRock reacted to bigbigfan in How much content before a web site is not considered thin?
I find that something starts to happen within Google when you reach the 300 article mark, I've noticed this a few times now. If your pages are well interlinked it may be a result of your pages getting a good number of internal links to be deemed important? Only Google really knows, 500 words and 300 pages seems to be a minimum for me before Google finally sends more than the typical 100 visitors a day cap.

Looks like there's only one real way to find out. Buy the book, I suppose. Looking at the offer price of 5usd, I think it may be a worth a try. After all I know I have spent more than that amount just to get to know a girl whom I know nothing about. There's a very good chance that this book will be more interesting than many girls I have met.
