Terrorist Blown Up By Own RPG

OK…this is obviously very graphic so the proper warning is given but I really had to share this as it goes to show you that when cleaning your weapon you better know what the hell you are doing.

 

This is a glimpse inside the world of what a terrorist does and how they think. You can hear them praising their god just before pulling the trigger. The results were not typical and you may either cheer or boo at the final scenes..

Our soldiers overseas faced these very kinds of people on a regular basis. I hope folks who support our troops have a cheer and know somebody gets his virgins…LOL.

Is Google Evil Banning Adsense Publishers?

If you have ever used the adsense publisher platform for making some extra cash like me, then you most likely have heard of horror stories about people getting banned right at the moment when they were due to be paid. I have seen this myself and know personally two people that lost their accounts right when the earnings were ramping up.

Here is one story that seems to shed some light on the dark side of Google:

http://elitedaily.com/news/technology/shocking-allegations-google-stealing-customers-using-adsense-service/

I have seen clicks evaporate, stats for my adsense back office not jive with my multiple reporting methods. It was suspicious at best and I always wondered if I was being skimmed. I still earn daily with adsense but it has been a rocky ride. Makes a person wonder about all those stories and complaints in the Google forums. A lot of people game the system, but there are folks who do make some good cash with it like I have. If you take time to read the story it may alleviate your worst fears, or at least confirm that you were not crazy or just a conspiracy theorist.

I also have a post from another person that is fairly long but well worth reading.

Josh Bachynski wrote this very long article about a meeting he had with Matt Cutts…

http://themoralconcept.net/

It has been confirmed by Matt himself that this meeting did take place. I relate Matt with the white house press secretary, both being able to stand up in front of the world and tell fibs as a front man for a very large corporate interest or government. To me,they seem to have only self interest in mind when they spew the cover stories to protect their own.

Google has purposefully set out to hurt individuals while reaping the harvest for their own bottom line. Collateral damage is just part of the scenery it seems, you got hurt while they destroy the spammers. Do they really care your life’s work in a blog got dropped down the index 40 pages? I think not, they really only care about targeting the competition. More money for them and to hell with you. And they wonder why Black Hat SEO still works and people are tired of trying the white hat crap.

Go Social They Said

If you remember Google Friend Select and had built this up over time then you know what I am talking about. They had this going and people used it, then they dropped the program without a replacement. I still wonder why we even bother sometimes trying to do what they ask. It is only one SEO signal but I had real people not fake following my blog, not any more from that program at least.

You can see why so many people over the past couple years have inundated the forum with complaints while the Google fanboys and rats laugh and ridicule. They have rats in all parts of life, but it seems in the second linked story you can see a reference of people ratting to Matt about a certain website and crying like little babies to get a cookie from Matt and be seen in good favor.

That is my soapbox for today, you can see that these stories just solidified my suspicions about a once well liked funny named search engine called Google. Most folks have a very negative view on this search engine now, and they deserve all the vitriol as they created it.

 

Give Thanks For Your Health-Some Folks Tonight Have None

Today you should give thanks and maybe say a prayer for the folks who lost their lives in this latest tornado outbreak. I for one am thankful as I had driven I-40 today and passed right by where these hit in Arkansas and wiped out a lot of homes and a few lives. Tornados hit several states and took lives as they tore up homes and made a general mess of things.

Aweber Service Went Downhill

I for one have had my Aweber account for some time now and really did not have that many problems until some updates just last fall. Others have had issues that stemmed from supposed upgrades but for the most part all was going fairly well. I went into my account the other day and tried to do some normal tasks and even backup my lists, none of the buttons worked. I think for me that was the deciding factor as I have worked through the changes and was doing my best to not get all worked up over the fact that delivery rates seemed to drop. Not all of this was Aweber’s fault, I will point directly at Google for the tabs changes in Gmail.

This latest of issues was the last straw as we keep plodding along and doing our best, then the service just slaps you right upside your head and makes you pay attention to the amount of issues and take stock of how the service is working to make your business easier. I found that with these recent problems that if I were to place a score on this service and make a decision on whether or not it was helping me or hurting, I decided that it had fallen into the realm of harm. Harm in time spent and that was above all else.

I used to get %34 average open rates and higher on my emails and people liked what I had to say. My emails were to the point and I did my best to provide value and free training and tips when possible. I will be sending out an email to my combined lists and sharing my decision to close my Aweber account and I wanted to say why so you understood.

This is not the end of my career, far from it. I will be making inroads elsewhere and I will also be moving my lists to a place where I am able to reach more of you.

I test a lot of software, I usually get it as a JV copy and run it until it breaks or I find that it works as advertised. I will continue to do this as long as folks want my unbiased opinion on what works. If you see a launch of software but didn’t hear from me that is really no indication that it may be bad, far from it. I only test software that fits with my business plan. If I see it does work and it will fit into your business, then you will most likely have an email from me in the inbox. Problem is that in recent times I hit promotions tab no matter the value of what I had to say. That is why I am going to re-frame my business now and change focus on how my message gets to you fine reader.

I do hope you will follow along as I continue to provide the inside look into what software and services are out there and how they will help you.

 

Video Vantage Gives You The YouTube Advantage

Software is a time saver, we get that. If you spend all your spare time building and ranking videos on YouTube then you realize what kind of time we are talking about here.

Currently there are ways to rank videos and do it the old way, like spamming the crap out of links and doing things you cannot do to your blog or website. Nope, if you spam you get hammered by some Google animal or something. Seems they punish people for that. Well, we know this also and still need traffic so what do you do? Ghost busters does not enter into anything so you do the next best thing and that is video.

Trying your best to do all this by hand and still have a life can be a wish that may never come true. Using a software tool to assist with some of the mundane chores has always been a solution for you, trouble is which software does the job you want it to without a lot of hassles?

The way I have found is just by testing to see what works best. It can be a bit expensive, especially when there are so many solutions out there to look at. Let’s look at some of the ways to save time.

Problem one: Upload a video easily

Solution: One click uploading

Problem Two: Build Backlinks to your video

Solution: The software builds high pr links and wiki links for you

I could go on and on but you get the idea here. Time saved is money in your pocket. I also see where this software works for both Mac and Windows so you do not have to worry a bit about running extra applications to get something to work with Mac. This is all done for you.

Have a look at Video Vantage and see what I am talking about. There is a lot more there on the page than what I can describe here. I have an idea that you will be happy with it.
