How Would You Like To Win An Apple iPad?

You may well remember the post where I gave MyLikes The Thumbs Up, well it seems that it’s time for a followup post because things are stirring in the world of MyLikes. That post explained how easy it was to make money with MyLikes but it seems that I wasn’t using it to it’s full potential. You see, I was only relying on the money that I could earn by tweeting a link, but as we all know the amount of people who see any particular tweet is limited to those of your followers who are online at the time.

Since then I’ve decided to put a small code in my sidebar, one that is adjustable so that it can fit most themes, which will display my latest MyLikes thereby increasing it’s exposure and consequently their earning potential.

I also found that I got paid for my first referral, a whole $4, which proves that they are true to their word. Although other people may have signed up using my link I didn’t get paid because they did not fulfill all the following requirements.

Detailed Rules: We only payout for influencers who satisfy the following conditions:

  • They must be from the United States, Great Britian, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia or Canada.
  • The number of Twitter followers must be more than the number of people they are following.
  • Their Twitter account must be at least 120 days old.
  • They complete the influencer profile on MyLikes.
  • They create at least one Sponsored Like on MyLikes.
  • Referral bonus reversed if the Influencer is found to be spam/fake twitter account.

The last two months they’ve been giving away an Apple iPad to whoever signed up the most influencers, and silly me never tried for it. Truth be told I don’t really have the time, but perhaps one of you have. Why not give it a shot, especially as how it’s absolutely free to join. Let’s not also forget the potential for adding to your income stream which is a nice little bonus.

Just so you know the team behind MyLikes arn’t your normal backyard newbie who don’t know what they’re doing. The dynamic trio consists of Bindu Reddy;

Before starting MyLikes, Bindu was a Google Apps product lead and was in-charge of various Google products including Blogger, Google Docs, Video and Shopping. Previously at Google, Bindu created Google Base and spearheaded the introduction of Quality Score into the AdWords bidding system. Previous to Google, Bindu was the Director of Product Management at Elance. She has a master’s degree from Dartmouth and an B.Tech degree from IIT, Mumbai.

Arvind Sandararajan;

Before starting MyLikes, Arvind was most recently in-charge of Google AdSense engineering. Previously at Google, Arvind led engineering teams for Gmail and Google Base. He was one of the very few people who received not one, but two prestigious Founders awards for his work on AdSense and Gmail. Previous to Google, Arvind held key engineering roles in BEA and Marimba. Arvind has a M.S. in Computer Science from Stanford and an B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Mumbai.

And last but not least, David Scacco;

Before joining MyLikes, David was an active angel investor and startup advisor. He worked at Google From 2000 – 2007 and holds the distinction of being the company’s first advertising sales executive. In his role as Director of the Vertical Markets Group David was responsible for building and managing an all-star team, which provided marketers with industry specific expertise. He and his team built successful advertising partnerships with many of the world’s best known brands and advertising agencies, as well as some of the fastest growing medium-sized companies. He also won a Google Founders award. Previous to Google he was a Director of Business Development at Ziff-Davis Media and Vice President of Marketing at Express Direct. He has a B.S. from Northern Illinois University.

Pretty impressive qualifications if you ask me, and with that sort of background you would expect MyLikes to grow as time goes on and as everybody knows, it’s best to hop on early if you want to get the best ride. If you haven’t joined yet it’s not too late to get in on the action.

Cool Blog Links Top 10 Coolest Blogs

Once upon a time a there was a man with a dream, and that dream was to bring to life a site that would one day link to all the coolest blogs in the blogosphere. That dream, in part came true on December 12th 2008 when Cool Blog Links came to life.  That man just happened to be yours truly and in almost 18 months it’s member base has grown to a whole 19! Yes you have heard right my treasure dream site has 19 members. OK, who the hell is that laughing in that background? Obviously not a member. Could someone please show that person the door, Mitch I reckon you can escort that low life out.

Yes, our member base is low but that doesn’t matter because our members are the best of the best and it’s only a matter of time before we will be beating them back with a stick. :tongue_rolleye_ee:

Seriously folks even with a relatively small member base Cool Blog Links has still obtained a PR3 ranking. As in the past I have decided to reward the top 10 members, that is those members that are currently ranking in the top 10 at the time of writing this post. The first such post was published on March 29th 2009 and the second on November 11th 2009.

As you would expect the top 10 blogs change as time goes by and so without further ado I would like to present the latest top 10 cool blogs.

  1. Tech18.com: Although a relatively new comer this blog has shot to the top.  It’s latest post, HTML5: What? Why? How and When discusses the enhancements to HTML that will may or may not be the bees knees in HTML? See what Sunil Jain has to say about it all.
  2. So, You Want To Be A Banquet Manager: Was the top dog for quite some time but is now running second. This blog is full of entertaining stories about what being a banquet manager is all about. It’s latest post, Hey Sales Chick – Breakfast is Only For An Hour and a Half! is just a sample of the interesting things that can happen when working in the hospitality industry.
  3. I’m Just Sharing: Yep, my good mate Mitch has shot to no.3 overtaking his good mate in the process. His blog covers many topics and is always a great read. It seems that one of his latest posts, My Gripe With WordPress.com Blogs outlays some of their short comings.
  4. Work From Home Business Blog: Peter Lee has been in the top 10 since day one and that’s not at all surprising seeing how he’s always writing great content in his quest to keep his readers up to date such as helping those who Wanna Know What Google Sees In Your Blog’s Home Page?
  5. The Shadows Of My Mind: If my memory serves me Lindsay is a fellow Aussie blogger and his blog also covers a wide range of topics. His post on Final Fantasy VIII – First Impressions also talks about his first encounter with the latest 3D movies.
  6. What A Load Of Bullshit:  Yep this is one of mine and it does really well in the SERPS.
  7. Wassup Blog: Yeah, there’s no need to tell you anything about this blog :drunk_tb:
  8. Scenic Adelaide: Yep another of my blogs. Imagine that, I have three blogs in the top 10. Not happy with that? The why not join and try to knock me off my perch.?
  9. Anne On Life: Anne is the one of two women to make it to the top 10. Way to go Anne. Anne can be hormonal at times as she admits in her post Every Child Needs Love, but then what woman isn’t? Only kidding ladies, you know I loves ya all.
  10. Expressive World:  Another lovely female blogger, Ana, owns this site and her blog is all about expression. She loves to post beautiful photos each one accompanied by something meaningful. I particularly like the Your Beauty In This World.

I’ve decided to make this post sticky for awhile so that those listed in this post will get the most benefit from being on the front page of a PR4 blog. Naturally I am hoping that this post will attract more members and there are advantages other than be listed on future Top 10 updates such as being listed on a PR 3 site, not to mention the added traffic that Cool Blog Links will send your way. I’ve just checked my Google Analytic and I was surprised to find that it is the number one source of traffic to this blog, no.2 being Twitter.

Most people who know me, or have noticed my interaction with the fairer sex, would probably tell you that there’s almost nothing I wouldn’t do to please them! That being the case you’re probably wondering what’s taking me so long in answering a fair maiden’s request that was placed some seven days ago.

That fair maiden was Colleen of Kennewick Real Estate who, in the post about Speeding Up Your Blog in order to keep Google and your readers happy, asked the following;

On an unrelated note Sire, a blog entry from you about the Digiprove you are using might be a good topic. Until now, I’ve never seen it nor heard of it. Just a thought, as I haven’t seen anything written on it, or other ways to protect against content theft. Might be a good topic.

For those of you who don’t know Colleen, she and her husband Joe are in the Real Estate game and have many wonderful properties for sale, including this one at West Pasco Washington which has stunning views.

Anyway Colleen, sorry for the delay but you know what they say, better late than never and I can only hope that it was worth the wait.

It all came about last December when some moron decided to steal a whole heap of my posts which eventuated in my post about stolen content, and then a followup post on the final outcome. I would recommend that post to anyone who would like to know what to do if the same thing ever happened to them because there are some great comments there which helped me and I am sure can help others in return.

Although most people know that they own copyright to all material that they post on their blog it can sometimes be difficult to prove it and the necessity of proof can be required when chasing those fools that pilfer your posts. This lead me in a search of a plugin that would certify to everyone that I am the sole owner of material posted on this blog.

The result of that search resulted in the installation of Digiprove.  As they say on their website:

Digiprove’s online copyright proving service is well-known to creators. Now we’re making it even easier to secure the copyright of your blog posts. The “Copyright Proof” WordPress plugin automatically Digiproves the content of every published blog post (new or edited). This gives you indisputable proof of the content, and the date and time of publication.

Not only that, but for every post that you make:

  • A notice and icon will be displayed at the foot of your blog post referencing the actual Digiprove certificate.
  • You will receive by email the digitally-signed certificate which protects your post
  • If you prefer, the certifying page will have a link-back to your blog site.

So much more effective than simply including a copyright notice.

You will notice an icon at the end of this post that signifies that this post is copyrighted. Clicking on that badge will take you to a numbered certificate that is dated showing me as the copyright owner. There is no way that anyone can argue that fact.

Something to note is that the plugin, though fully functional, is in Beta mode which is why it is currently free of charge. The website does state the following;

Once the first formal release of Copyright Proof is made, we will apply some commerce! However it is our intention to keep the service free-of-charge to personal/hobbyist users and to educational establishments and registered charities.

While it is still completely functional as a free user I no longer have access to certain sections of the website which are reserved for paying members. Cost for personal use is $8 per month or $80 per year but for now I am completely happy as a non paying user.
