Where Has All The Spam Gone?

Spam is a blight on blogs. I like to think of spammers as vultures or seagulls hovering above the blogs looking for a tasty morsel that they can descend on and devour. In our case those tasty morsels are dofollow blogs as well as those using CommentLuv and KeyWordLuv. If you're one of those bloggers who are being inundated with spam you should read on because you're going to find this post really interesting. It's because spam has always been a pain is the ass that I'm always on the lookout to find stuff that will help me to control it. Heck, you ask almost any blogger and they'll tell you how monitoring and deleting spam will take up a good portion of their blogging time. In Search Of The Spam Busters Akismet would have to be the first ever plugin I used to combat spamming and it is so good I have it in my spam busting arsenal. Unfortunately as good as it is, it's not quite enough. That's when I installed GASP, to put a stop to all the Robot Spam. And yet it still wasn't enough and it's one of the reasons I put my hand into my cyberspace pocket, i.e. PayPal to purchase CommentLuv Premium which had an updated, more powerful version of GASP installed Enter ComentLuv Premium Spam Buster It's because spammers are always on the lookout to circumvent whatever plugin you're using that we have to thank people like Andy who are keeping track of their…

CommentLuv Premium Adding To Revenue Stream

In my last post I told everyone how you have to be prepared to Be Prepared To Spend Money To Make Money. Most of you would agree that the best way to make money pushing any particular affiliate is if you actually own or have tried the product. This is because people are more likely to believe what you have to say if they see you suing the product. There is no point me trying to sell a MacBook Air to someone if they see me using a PC! If on the other hand they see me using a MacBook Air and I can demonstrate to them all the features it has they are more likely to buy one from me.

The products that I actively promote on this blog are products that I use, such as my theme, Market Samurai as well as other products. The fact that people actually see me using the products that I recommend is their greatest selling point. That is one of the reasons that I have decided to purchase CommentLuv Premium. I don’t think that anyone would argue with me when I say that commentluv is one of the best WordPress plugins out there. Yet as good as it is Andy has added many features that make this a plugin people would be willing to purchase, and as owners the ability to promote it to other bloggers.

What Makes CommentLuv Premium So Great

That’s right, CommentLuv Premium is great and I believe adding it to your plugin arsenal will lead to sales because people will want the features it has to offer. Things like;

  • It has 5 plugins in one: These include KeyWord Name, Andy’s version of KeyWord Luv, Twitter Link, Gasp, DoFollow and of course, commentluv (more…)

More On LA, Las Vegas & Rewarding Your Readers

In my last two posts I wrote about my trip to the US and I thought I would continue the thread because so many interesting things happened there and I have a lot to share with you. Those posts talked about tipping and good service and I tied them into how we could improve our blogging. It would be unreasonable to expect that no matter where you go in the States they would treat you like pure gold. There were a few places where the service was shocking. The first happened to be in the Bank Of America. As there were a few questionable people hanging around the ATM I decided to go into the bank to withdraw some cash. After walking through this weird system, obviously something to do with security, that involved two doors where only one person was allowed to enter at a time. I approached a female bank teller about withdrawing some cash. Man, what a sour puss, I reckon she must have missed out on getting laid that morning. Anyway, she says she needed to see my passport to which I replied I only had my driver's licence on me, which happened to be acceptable everywhere else we went whilst there, Nope that wasn't acceptable but I was welcome to use the ATM outside. I'm sorry but that made no sense to me whatsoever, it's not like the ATM could check my ID. What really cheesed me off was her condescending attitude. Another occasion of bad service…
