Internet Marketing for the Blind – A Rant!
Yes, Ive divided into the deep end of Internet marketing. Well I think I have!
It makes me angry to see all the cr * p websites out there trying to sell you hens teeth.
I had the notification one day that I would try and promote a site, any site … Get it up on the web and see where it would go …
Well its getting there .. Im trying not to spend any money (apart from hosting) and possibly, maybe sometimes and possibly, I might make some $$$ at it.
Ive signed up for Google AdSense and any number of "FREE" Search Engine Submission sites ..
Im learning all at PR (not the 90's idea of PR obviously …. Yaw! Mawn!) And how many websites get higher in Googles Rank, and how some people would kill their own pet Labrador to get up higher and all about SEO and Scraper Sites and Links and Link and Links and more links ….. And then some more Links ….
Ive setup a site called Sparks Flying .. [http://www.sparksflying.com] and I want people to "Catch that Spark while it flys" …. (Its all I could think of …!)
Im trying to see if I can drive some people (I might hire a big bus and get people there ..) to the site using various methods …
Thinking that paying $ 10 for 10,000 visitors of traffic a few weeks ago was the best thing since sliced bread has since left a tang of disdain in my mouth … I mean HELLO? What was I thinking .. Ive found lots of sites that let you sign up and run a web page in the background .. but really .. its not doing you any favors ..
In fact I found out through distance learning (me reclined back in my chair in shock) that Google AdSense makes some form of calculation for CPC (cost per click i believe? – correct me if im wrong please!). Lets do it like at school:
If I have 1 visitor and 1 Click – Good
If I have 10 visitors and 5 clicks – Better
If I have 100 visitors and 2 clicks – worse
If I have 10,000 visitors over 3 weeks and clicks like tumbleweed rolling around a western ..
Trés Mal! (Im not french, im just trying to get across how bad it is ..)
So these sites offering traffic (unless they can prove they have someone interested in your site and not sitting there with lots of browsers open caring less) are actually quite useless (without you can convince me otherwise!)
Right, Im off to see if Ive made my first million, I'll be in touch ..
