Its a Friday here in Singapore and I'm Going Fishing!

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Well not fishing exactly, gonna hop over to Universal Studios (Singapore) and check out the rides, maybe pop into the Marina Sands Casino along the way. Quick unwind after a week of slugging out there with Google and finally sit down to some needed R&R.

Random thoughts before I shut the computer down.

While Adwords can be mean (and they've been pretty mean to pretty much everyone recently), and almost everybody is jumping ship to making money with plentyoffish, myads, trafficvance, mediatraffic, leadimpact, adbrite etc, and all different types of advertising networks.

My advice is to stay with Adwords and go against the current because only shooting stars break the mould.

That means, if you're doing CPA with the networks such as C2M, or Azoogle, or MaxBounty, or Copeac… step back and source for new affiliate programs to market.

Google Adwords Will Ban The Following Type Of Sites

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Google will suspend AdWords accounts include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • data collection sites that offer free items and the like in order to collect private information
  • arbitrage sites without relevant and original content that are designed for the purpose of showing ads
  • affiliate sites without relevant and original content that are designed to drive traffic to another site with a different domain
  • "get-rich quick" sites
  • malware sites that install software on a visitor's computer
  • poor comparison shopping or travel sites whose primary purpose is to send users to other shopping or travel comparison sites, rather than to provide useful content or additional search functionality

These are guidelines, but they will ban more as Adwords deem non- beneficial to the public. If someone writes into Adwords and a manual reviewer reviews your site, deciding it is indeed non compliant, or if enough complaints can be found on "rip off" complaints sites, then the account and all related accounts, domains will get banned too.

The AdWords system visits and evaluates advertiser landing pages on a regular basis to ensure this compliance.

When suspending accounts,  Adwords determines whether an AdWords account is "related" based on various factors including subscriber data, account content, and other information.

If you're a six figure ex adwords advertiser and want to get back into the Adwords game, with new accounts and all, contact me here for "Google Slap" support.

Google Slap And How To Get Around It

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

These days, everyone is suffering from the Google Slap.

Adwords Ban is very common now. Google Adwords reviewers have the authority to ban any site they perceive as "poor" user experience.

We all love to market info products. However, the days of marketing information products using Google Adwords are 99.9% over.

Most newbies start out trying to market CLICKBANK products.  Understand now that if its just a simple sales page, or a site that is of low quality which has received complaints by users writing in to "rip of sites", telling of their negative experience, that domain will receive a low Quality Score, which means expensive $1.50 bids, or you might receive an outright ban.

But is this going to impede us from earning $1000++ a day?

Of course not! 🙂

Back From China!

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

Its been an interesting 2 months in China! Where the weather food and shopping are great..

Now i'm back in Singapore and its time to share. The number of rich in China are just going to get more and why not lets be one of them…

One of the reasons I went there is to source for products that are currently selling hot right now in the West. If marketed right and the products tested before sale, you're looking at a margin of x3 what you pay for it in China.

Another reason are the recent google slaps that make it harder for one to market the common products that are common to most new comers. Google now bans accounts instead of just giving warnings. Physical products are very less likely to get banned because they are marketed much less as compared to info products.

Hence if you're able to go the extra mile to get into untapped markets, then there's alot more money to go around.

What kind of products?

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

A way to make money online is to go into product marketing. We're looking at ebay, alibaba, places where you can source for products then sell. Most of these products are manufactured in China, where the overhead and cost is low. Many good brands like the apple iphone are made in china also.
