A Life Less Ordinary

Um, sorry for the title, it has very little bearing on the subject of this post. I just thought it sounded pretty cool. It’s the name a music album or song, but can’t for the life of me remember who the artist is. Where’s Google when you need it.

Where would I be without Google? For a start, this advert box on the right side of my blog would look rather lonely sitting there all empty :~)

Today was a bit of a boring day. I meant to do so much, but achieved so little. It was one of those days where time just wasted away by doing what seems to be nothing.

I meant to do some more link exchange promoting for, but never got round to it. I also wanted to get two new niche dirctory sites created, but again, never got round to it.

Sometimes, that’s the way it goes when you work from home, you just end up losing a bit of focus for a day.

On a brighter note, my fitness instructor at the gym today was hot! I will have to go there more often…

The Launch Day

Today I launched abcHYIP over on the HYIP Scripts website. It’s a bit of a quiet launch because I don’t have any templates for the buyers yet 😑 My programmers keep promising templates, but none have turned up so far. They absolutely 100% assure me that they are going to be ready by Monday.

So to sweeten the deal, I’ve reduced the price down from $197 to $147 πŸ™‚ That’s to make up for the inconvenience of not having a good selection of templates to choose from. I fully expect that I will be selling 50 or more scripts per month.

I have also launched the new PTR Script script site called abcPTR. I will be blogging the progress of this script over the next several months while it is being developed.

I can’t wait to get the PTR script out – even more so than the abcHYIP script! I will be using all the profits from abcHYIP to fund the PTR script.

Today is a sad day :-(

Today is a sad day. It’s the first day of the rest of my life without a big beer belly.

You see, years of self abuse down at the pub (pints, for those of you wondering otherwise) has taken it’s toll, and no longer can I sit idly by as my waist line continues to expand to accomodate, for the want of a better word, my pure liquid grain storage system (beer belly for any techies out there).

No longer, at the grand old age of 23, can I blame the hamster cheeks and love handles on youthful puppy fat.

Yes my friends (and you too, mother), it is time to take action. Let it be said that on this day, 12th May 2006, I, Peter Claridge set forth on a journey of great peril (and, for some reason, a gold ring), accompanied by fellowship of dwarfs, wizards and the true heir to the thrown of Gond….

…oh, wait, wrong journey. That happens next week, my mistake.

So yes, I’ve joined the local gym and swimming centre for a mere (imagine!) ΓƒΖ’Γ†β€™Γƒβ€ Γ’β‚¬β„’ΓƒΖ’Γ‚Β’ΓƒΒ’Γ’β‚¬Ε‘Γ‚Β¬Γƒβ€¦Γ‚Β‘ΓƒΖ’Γ†β€™ΓƒΒ’Γ’β€šΒ¬Γ…Β‘ΓƒΖ’Γ’β‚¬Ε‘Γƒβ€šΓ‚Β£45 a month for unlimited gyming and swimming. Great deeds are often done in the darkest hour, and a dark day it is when I can no longer get into 32″ (or was it 34″?) jeans!

A plan has been laid, action will be taken. Youthful exuberance (thank you google for teaching me how to spell) will return and marathons I will run.

Hmm, well. We’ll see.

(OOOooo, link at all the pretty weight loss ads Google has decided to give >>>)

HYIP Junction

Pretty soon, the biggest event to hit the HYIP arena (and given the collosal demise of some of the biggest HYIP’s in history, that’s bloody big statement for me to make) is about to happen.

For the past three months, half a dozen programmers have been working day and night on a project known as HYIP Junction…and today I got to see the culmination of all their work.

You see, HYIP Junction is not going to become YAHRS (Yet Another HYIP Rating Site), HYIP Junction is going to be THE HYIP rating site for every HYIP investor in the industry. I know it sounds like a pie in the sky statement, but this going to be massive.

For a start, it’s going to allow all HYIP investors to do something that no other HYIP rating site or forum lets their members do: have a share of the profits. If HYIP101 has shown me anything, it’s that people can make a great income within the HYIP arena without actually investing, but just earning referral commission from HYIP101.

HYIP Junction is going to be taking that to the next level. There is going to be such an incentive for every member, every HYIP investor to promote HYIP Junction over any other HYIP forum or rating site, that there might as well no longer be a TalkGold, MoneyMakerGroup or HYIP Discussion or GoldPoll. Infact, we’ll probably find these sites promoting HYIP Junction because it will make great financial sense for them to do so.

But of course, HYIP Junction is not just going to be about empowering the members, and giving them a real earning potential. It’s going to be the focal point, the hub of everything HYIP. Any news, any program, any update will be routed through HYIP Junction.

Quite soon I will be calling on a team of beta testers to come over and put the site through it’s paces before it launches. I’m also tidying up a lot of cosmetics to make the script look beautiful and putting in a few last minute changes that were overlooked when we laid down the specifications.

HYIPJunction will be ready by the end of May or the first week of June. Be amazed :~D

My Best Month Ever

I have just successfully completed my best ever month in terms of online earnings. This is in no small way thanks to the efforts of my business partner who has selflessly been surfing half a dozen autosurf accounts for the past couple of months. Sure, he might be slack when it comes to trivial things such as running the business, getting back to his business partner (me) on various issues, answering emails, doing his share of the work etc – but when it comes to autosurfs, no other man is more dedicated than he πŸ™‚

Another reason why I’ve just had my best month ever is because I’ve sold resell rights to my brand new HYIP script that isn’t even launched yet. They have bought full source code access which they can modify or manipulate any way that they wish. The five figure fee I charged them recovers a lot of my outlay for the script.

Some people that know about the deal have asked if I was crazy because I was selling source code to a script that I hadn’t even sold to a customer yet. My take on the situation is that if I can recover a very high percentage of my costs in one single hit then I would prefer to do that over dealing with the 100 odd customers it would take to do otherwise. I also have the advantage of having a brand name ( is quite well known), the chance of having Brian from TalkGold on board as a super affiliate (free advertising), dozens of new features that I can now afford, slicker customer service, and over 4 years knowledge of the HYIP arena.

Yes, it definitely made sense to sell source code and resell rights to the script. The people that make the real money online are those that can think up unique products, have the necessary capital to develop the product and then sell it. If you are trying to succeed selling other people’s products, you won’t make as much money than if you sold your own products.

I am actually going to be using some of the capital to put towards a new PTR (paid to read) script. The reasons for making this decision are pretty simple. The PTR arena is much bigger than the HYIP arena and there are more PTR sites than HYIP sites. PTR doesn’t have the same level of cut-throat scammers that HYIP has (though it does have it’s fair share). The current script market leader has sold over 5000 copies of the script in the last 5 years (5000 x $97 = $$$) and there are currently over 1600 active websites using the script. That’s one hell of a market. I’m also in a great position because the script of the market leader is clunky, very user-unfriendly and extremely labour intensive. I have designed my script to be as automated as possible – infact if it wasn’t for support, the script could run itself.

I’ve also just opened a new forex trading account, but more news on that another time πŸ™‚

Lots of work has been done

Ah, welcome back to my blog. Did you miss me? It’s been over a month and a half since my last entry…so what’s been going on since then? Surely I should be the rich businessman I deserve to be by now, since Mega Toolkit should have been launched and a 100% success.

Hmm…theory is a great thing. However, reality is totally different (and much more accurate).

Mega Toolkit hasn’t been launched due to several reasons…

Firstly, Paul and I jetted off to America on the 27th April for a couple of weeks. Mega Toolkit was due to be launched while we was out there for the convention. Unfortunately the hotel we were staying at did not have an internet connection and the proclaimed business center consisted of two clapped out Dells (and in a hotel of some 500 guests, guess how often those computers were free?).

So instead of being a preperation week in Florida, it turned into a proper vacation and we went about doing all the things tourists do in Florida.

SIDEBAR: Incidently, we are thinking of writing an ebook guide called how to do the theme parks in four hours as this was the average amount of time we did each theme park in πŸ™‚

We also had the chance to meet a top marketer while down in Florida called Gary Ambrose (notice he doesn’t update his blog either!). We told Gary our concept for Mega Toolkit and Monthly Toolkit and he just looked at Paul and said, “Dude, what are you doing? Launch Monthly Toolkit first, then Mega Toolkit.”

It was like an epiphany for Paul (I liken it to the scene in Toy Story when all those little green aliens look up to Buzz and in one voice go “oooooooo”).

So now…we are doing Monthly Toolkit first. This is fine and great (from my project managers point of view), but the Mega Toolkit site was 100% finished and ready to go….Monthly Toolkit was still a shell of a website with no products. Aragh!

So the vacation in Florida finished and we caught the plane up to Atlanta for the convention.

SIDEBAR: Travellers top tip; never ever stay in a Hilton Hotel. They are expensive beyond belief and you can get the same standards by staying at a Holiday Inn, Days Inn or Embassy Suites! Hilton is just daylight robbery.

When we got to the Hilton, we were expecting free wi-fi access (at $220 a night there are somethings that you expect!), since all the cheap motel/hotels had it as standard. Imagine the horror when we found out it was going to be $10 per 24 hours per laptop! So if Paul and I had ordered it for the duration of our stay, we’d have paid $80 for access to the internet.

Now at this point, Paul decided that he was going to become extremely ill. If anyone knows Paul, they know that he has the immune system of a new born baby and will catch any virus that is passing by. So unlucky for him, he was unable to attend the Seminar (and boy, you don’t want to know how much those tickets cost).

The Seminar was absolutely fantastic for me. It didn’t talk 100% about marketing online, but also essential things such as how to run your business, what you should be outsourcing, prioritizing your tasks, delegating tasks etc. And for someone with no office experience or proper business experience (I went from Uni to being self employed, my only ‘real’ jobs have been in retail), the information was invaluable.

Of course, there was some of the rah rah motivational speakers that made you get up and declare your goals and ambitions to complete strangers and make you do declarations with your hand on your hearts…but I largely ignored all that – us Brits have a stiff upper lip to maintain don’tcherknow.

The main point of Paul going to the Seminar was to network and JV (gaw, Joint Ventures for those of you that don’t know), but since the business had a man down, the role was passed over to me…lol and I loved it! Getting to speak to people that actually have a clue what you are talking about and understand exactly what you business is about is a very liberating experience and you end up chatting for hours. I found you could go up to any person in the seminar (yay, even the hot chicks!) and introduce yourself and always have something to talk about.

Umm, so if you are in any form of online business at all, or thinking about it, I highly recommend the Seminar.

So…Paul now wishes he’d never sent me to the Seminar because I came back with all these ideas and suggestions and things we should be implementing and doing now now now!

I was so hyped up about what I’d learnt from Big Seminar that in the first week I’d got back (we got back on the 8th April)…

– I switched all support over to the help desk on (and now support requests are virtually zero)

– I had written a full 7 email autoresponder series for all new HYIP101 members,

– I had completely revised the HYIP101 ebook with dozens of new articles,

– I had added the newsletter registration form in the members area for people to sign up to,

– I had created articles for people to promote their HYIP101 links,

– I created a ‘preview’ HYIP101 ebook that members could brand with their affiliate links and give away,

– I created a splash page for HYIPAdvertiser (this will rock once it takes off),

– I created a basic salesletter for Monthly Toolkit,

– I compiled the HYIP101 affiliate payouts list and HYIP101 competition winners for Paul to payout

– I created a full to do list of things for Paul to do so that I could move forward.

So all that was done in the first week we got back – if anyone here is reading this from HYIP101 (and you’ve managed to get down to this part without falling asleep – do you have nothing better to do with your life?!) and wondering why you haven’t seen all these changes yet…Hmm, let’s just say it’s someones job to check and ‘approve’ everything first before sending it live πŸ™‚

Now, since my wonderful business partner didn’t get back to me (he was still ill and moved back in with his ex-gf while his house was being redecorated), I had plenty of time to sort out my own personal business.

This mainly consisted of bug testing the latest version of abcHYIP (which still isn’t out, aragh!) and getting the changes done. I’ve had a small nightmare with it recently because I can’t find a host that will support the script :-/ which isn’t helpful. I’m also relying on to provide the templates for the script, which haven’t materialized yet. All these little things keep pushing the launch dates back and back. It was supposed to be ready on Monday – but you know how it is.

Keeping on the HYIP theme, I’ve also decided that it’s time to get, my HYIP Rating site re-launched. Basically I will be listing some of the best programs (IMO) that launch each day (and in the HYIP arena, that’s pretty tough!). I won’t be monitoring them myself, but placing monitoring buttons from other hyip montiors on the site so people can see if it’s paying or not. Mostly I just want it to rank well in the search engines and have people clicking on the google ads. Selfish, I know.

I’m going to be creating a vast network of niche sites based on blogs with a girl from Houston. We will be using automation software to submit PLR articles to the blogs on a set frequency. The regularly updated content along with my SEO skills should ensure that the blogs can get to #1 spots pretty easily. The articles are coming from my new membership with this site, but it is now closed to new members. We intend to use the traffic to sell products and build an email list.

The next thing I am working on is a PTR script, or Paid To Read (email) that will automate a lot of features and make it very simple for the admin to control their advertisers, members and affiliate payouts. More information on this at a later date.

And finally, I’ve entered into an agreement with my programming company to work 50/50 on a new project called that will be a Web 2.0 (I hate that phrase!) software that allows people to sell their digital goods in one online digital market place. The concept is a little bit like Amazon, but all the products (ebooks, audio, software, games, templates, graphics, web scripts) will come from users who can create a merchant account and upload their product(s) to the appropriate categories. There are some similar digital download stores on the internet, but none that take the concept to a community/user to user level – which if you didn’t know, is where the internet is heading.

Umm, wow, you managed to read all the way down to here?! You must have a boring job, or really love reading about me and my business.

I hope it kept you entertained enough πŸ™‚

Ain’t No Stopping Us Now! Woot!

I realize that I haven’t been updating this journal quite as much as I should have, but then again, according the the web log stats, it’s only me and my mum that’s reading this (Hi Mum!), so is there any point? Well, it helps me put things down on paper and organize my thoughts to see where I am, so it helps me, even if it bores any readers to death!

I know I should be writing about funny, human interest things, like which lady I’m seeing, or what stupid thing my housemate has just done or what crisis I’m having (I’m a guy, we don’t do crisisesesese(sp?!)).

Well, sorry, but you’re not going to get any of that on here, it’s a business blog about business things. Maybe you’ll pick up some tips along the way and see that working from home isn’t as carefree as you might think.

1. HYIP Junction
Work has started on this mega portal. It is expected to take 3-4 months, and at $30,000 it is our most ambitious project to date. My involvement in this project has been to create the programme requirements document (PRD) which is a word doc that describes to the programmers everything that we need. I have created a full HTML mock up of the site with everything, the rating stats, the members area, the forum, the new advertising system, the admin area everything.

SIDENOTE: If you are ever going to get something created by programmers, if possible always create a HTML mockup of exactly what you want. If you want a content management system, create a HTML site of exactly how the admin area should look. Not only does this cut down on development time (HYIPJunction went from a 6 month project to a 3-4 month project due to the mockup), it also ensures you get exactly what you want.

HYIPJunction contains so many brand new, never seen before features that I just can’t wait to see it launched. The advertising system is revolutionary, I’ve never even seen this method on any other website, I should patent it! The members features and site features just means that it becomes a no brainer for every HYIP member. So watch out TalkGold and GoldPoll! We’re moving into your territory now!

2. MegaToolKit
ARAGH! I know I keep mentioning this one all the time, and I know it should have been launched in January (*side long scowl at Paul*), but it really really is very nearly ready to go.

We’ve decided to use the membership site script from Mike Filisaime’s new package, but we still haven’t received it! Our hands are completely 100% tied until we get this software.

In the meantime we’ve been working hard to add more and more content and value to the package to make it a truely no brainer. We’ve spent over $1000 on brand new graphics for ebooks and software covers, headers, footers, backgrounds, membership cards and so on. We’ve (I) also spent dozens of hours customizing various private label ebooks and software to become part of the JuicySolutions products range. We’ll be giving all this away as part of the MegaToolKit package.

The next feature we’ve been working on is a brand new monthly membership site that will cost ordinary members $30-$40 monthly, but MegaToolKit members will get a lifetime membership as part of the package.

Why is this new monthly membership site going to be a truely no brainer for anyone looking to make money? Consider the following features:

– 150 Brand New Private Label Articles Every Month
– 3 Brand New Private Label Ebooks Every Month
– 3 Salesletters For The Ebooks Every Month
– 3 Complete Set Of Graphics For The Ebooks Every Month
– 5 Brand New Private Label AdSense Sites Every Month
– 5 Brand New Graphics For Any PLR Product On The Market
– Free Unlimited Domain Hosting
– 5 Brand New Mystery Private Label Products Every Month

Each month you will be getting well over $5,000 worth of products, graphics and services for from just $30. You can upload all of the sites and start making money straight away. Within a few months you will have dozens of money pulling, adsense clickin’ websites.

Not a bad package for the price, eh? This makes it truely a no-brainer for anyone buying the MegaToolKit package because they get a lifetime membership to the monthly membership site (we can’t tell you the name of it just yet).

3. abcHYIP
This is my site, the software is currently in beta testing stage, unfortunately I can’t tell you who’s testing it just yet because they are still developing their websites. Hopefully after a couple more weeks of beta testing I can start selling for real (yay!).

4. AdSense Sites
My adsense dreams of world domination have fallen by the way side recently due to constantly being down in Brighton giving Paul a kick up the arse to do some work (the guy would do anything to get out of what he should be doing!). As such I haven’t had a chance to work on any more sites or develop existing ones.

However, I’ve just had my best month ever in AdSense (yay!), but well short of my goal of $100 a day. One site has been doing pretty well for me, because its ranked really well in the search engines. I also have a list of absolutely fantastic keywords and niche markets. I have had a small script created for $200 that will help me exploit this niche market no end. I just need to find the time to create the sites and start promoting them.

5. HYIP101
This has just had another storming month. Not quite as big as January’s but twice as good as all previous months nevertheless. We have quite a few plans for this site in the near future, including a big update for the ebook.

6. HYIPAdvertiser
This is a HYIP Advertising Forum where everyone is free to register and post their ads in the appropriate sections. It still needs a few modifications before it’s ready, such as limiting the post count to two posts per day (so people can’t spam the board) and not allowing any replies to posts (it’s just a classified ads forum and we don’t want any flame wars to start), and installing a mod_rewrite mod that creates search engine friendly URL’s.

This site has the potential to be massive based on the popularity of another free classified ads forum which has over 112,000 members!

There’s a few other projects going on in my world, but those that I have mentioned above are the big things. Over the coming months I should be seeing some big results from all of them πŸ™‚

Like a Steam Train

Things are moving along nicely now, like a steam train that’s built up enough boiler pressure to start turning the wheels, once it’s started, there’s no stopping!

Last week I spent the week down in Brighton with Paul (to give him a bloody good kick up the arse, the lazy git). During last week Paul sent an email to Ewan Chia (Ewan Chia) with whom he had a good friendship with a few years ago. Where Paul went off and found the holy grail of making money (HYIPs), Ewan went on to become one of the most successful marketers online.

So, what does this have to do with us? What with the development of, we need some big names on board to help us promote our product, and they don’t come much bigger than Ewan Chia! This also creates a snowball effect because as Paul approaches other marketers, the fact that he can say that he has got Ewan on board would carry an awful lot of weight. Naturally, if Euen is promoting it, then everyone else will want to promote it too. This is very good for me because it means more money πŸ™‚

Next, we launched HYIPJunction to our HYIP101 members and we managed to raise $50,000 capital that is going towards the development and marketing of the site. HYIPJunction is like nothing ever seen before in the HYIP arena, it literally blows everything out of the water, every HYIP investor will *need* to have an account with us. At a conservative guesstimate, we predict that the site will be earning $20,000 or more a month within 6-12 months of launching from the advertising revenue. That’s a nice little income πŸ™‚

This week we should be receiving the membership script from (incredible marketing package) which can apparently do just about anything. I will be spending my time installing the script and converting the current MTK design into this new membership script. I also plan to use this script to create a brand new members site where for a monthly subscription fee you get access to 250 private lable articles and 2 brand new private label ebooks. Articles and private label ebooks are big business right now and anyone who knows anything about internet marketing should know that this is an amazing offer.

There are many more things that are being done in the background too. The redesign and relaunch of and the new look newsletter called ‘Freshly Squeezed’, a new support site for all our products (no more customer support emails, yay!) and a new articles site.

Lots and lots to do, only 24 hours a day to do them in!

How Was Your Day?

These four words irritate the hell out of me whenever someone asks me about how my working day has been.

You see, working at home is totally different to having your usual 9-5 job. For one thing it can be a lot more stressful because if you don’t put the work in, you don’t get the money! Also, there are no fixed hours of work, so when people are knocking off at 5 o clock in the evening, there’s a good chance that I’m still working. So coming in to my office and asking ‘how my day was’ is a surefire way to get a short and curt answer. If you did ask how the day was, you probably wouldn’t understand the answer anyway!

The other thing you’ll find is that people are obssessed about how much money you’ve made. When things are going great and you’re pulling in thousands a day, I’m sure this is not a big issue, but when sales are slow and all you have to show for your day is $15 in your adsense account, asking someone who works from home ‘make much money today?’ is a direct route in to that persons enemies list.

The way I see it, if I’ve had a good day I’ll tell you that I’ve had a good day, if I’ve made lots of money, I’ll tell you I’ve made lots of money. If I’m not talking about my work, assume that I really really don’t want to talk about my work so don’t ask!

While I’m on my soapbox, I may as well continue with some pet hates…

‘So what is it that you do on this interweb spider thing?’

If you can’t understand the internet, don’t even ask! If you use the internet to check your email on hotmail, and you use your email to forward stupid emails to your mates, you use Google to do all your searches and amazon to do all your shopping, then I’m afraid you’ll never ever understand what it is us internet entrepreneurs do. You might think that you are ‘taking an interest’ by asking questions and trying to understand, but you are just being plain annoying and irritating. Trust me πŸ™‚

(SIDENOTE: one friend of mine somehow thought I did ‘templating’ on the internet and told their friends that I was a ‘templater’. They came to this conclusion because I showed them which is where I buy a lot of my website designs from and they picked up on the word ‘templates’)

So if anyone is reading this that I know personally, here’s the top 3 questions not to ask. Ever.

1. How was your day? (“Fucking awful, my servers been ddos’ed, my websites have been hacked, my software is being sold by some bastard for 10% of the price, adsense clicks are down 50%, an e-currency has just taken $5000 from my account, webdev costs are spiralling and I’ve just had my major website delisted from Google. Happy now? Oh, you don’t understand any of that”)

2. Made much money today? (“No, and reminding me about such things reeeaaalllyyy doesn’t make you my friend”)

3. What is it you actually do on the internet? (“I look at porn all day along with developing websites, coming up with new website ideas, creating project requirement documents, invest in high yield investments, manage the customer service across a dozen or so websites, teach myself new programming languages, research new business opportunities” – hey, at least people will actually understand the first answer)

Ahhh, that’s my rant over. It feels good to get it off your chest and into the world wide web πŸ™‚

A New Website

Actually, it’s three new websites, I’m just putting the finishing touches to them all.

The first one is a Finnish website for a client from Finland (fancy that?). She runs her own natural/alternative therapy business and needed her own website to show to prospective clients. She was referred to me by another client on the basis that I was really good. It just goes to show that word of mouth is a powerful business tool.

I remember working at a supermarket when I was 16 and we were watching a corporate video and they reckoned that if someone had a bad experience with a company, they’d tell 10 of their friends about it, however if they had a good experience they’d tell just 1 person. So obviously the message was give good customer service to everyone so that they all tell just one person.

I was really pleased with the way the website turned out, it’s actually quite a challenge creating a website in a language that you don’t understand, you have to keep asking for translations of text and link names. Finnish is also possibly one of the hardest languages ever, no word is less than 600 characters in length! You can check out the website here: Of course, I’m always available for small projects like this so drop me a line if your looking for a new website (blatant plug, but hey, it’s my blog!).

The next website I was working on it the new ‘hub’ site for mine and Paul’s business. I recently discovered a fantastic CMS called Xoops so decided to use it on this new hub site.

Although it’s not finished yet, there’s a lot of text and information to add, you can check it out here: I think it’s going to look absolutely fabulous when it’s finished and a great showcase for our projects, websites and products.

The final site I’ve been working on is a little pet project of mine. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do ever since I ran a site called back in 2000. This time the site is called and like it’s powered with the Xoops CMS.

I believe that with the right SEO and article marketing I can make absolutely huge, everything is in place, articles, reviews, forum, directory, scripts, it just needs some visitors πŸ™‚

One great way of ensuring that people don’t click the back button is to hire a forum poster that will flood the forum with tonnes of posts every day for 1 or 2 months in an attempt to generate replies and responses. If people see an empty forum it’s like having a big sign saying “go away! no one wants you here!”, but if there are hundreds of posts for people to read through, hopefully at least one will catch their attention enough to take the time to register and post a reply. Well…we’ll see shall we?!

End of the week

So, it’s the end of the week, and what have I achieved?

I have finished off the back end members area for (and we’re *still* waiting for Paul to finish the sales page, can anyone say fixmyebooks? (private joke)).

We have programmers working on megatoolkit because the mod_rewrite function wasn’t working correctly and people couldn’t see the sales page (which was not too much of a problem because Paul hasn’t done it yet!). Also we had to stop letting people sign up with out paying (not good when you have over $15,000 worth of downloads in the members area!).

I have set up a new travel website and will be adding content to it over the weekend and promoting it via SEO Elite.

I have also spent some time promoting abcHYIP doing lots of off page optimization so that I can be ranked number 1 for ‘hyip scripts’. I found out that MSN already ranks me as number 1 for HYIP scripts here:

HYIP Scripts

Which is nice!

I also discovered that MSN ranks another one of my websites, is ranked number 4 for it’s primary keyword ‘Paypal merchants’ here:

paypal merchants

Yahoo also gives similar results, but there is no love from Google πŸ™

Next week will be another busy week. I pray to the webmaster gods that Paul will have finally finished the sales letter for

Less Boring Day

Today was a much less boring day than yesterday. I managed to get through all my jobs on Business side of things and was able to spend some quality time on my own personal websites. At the moment I’m creating a new firesale on where I’ll quite literally be giving away source code access to over 10 different HYIP related software. I’m hoping it will recover the cost of the new script that I’ve had developed.

Since I’m also a bit of an SEO freak, I love optimizing websites and getting them to the top of Google, MSN and Yahoo for various keywords. I’ve bought some software called SEO Elite which costs $167 and it’s worth every penny!

Just an example of how well the software is working on my sites:

1. Core Exercises
This site ranks #5 (out of 23m results) on Google for primary keyword ‘core exercises’ see Here. It’s also ranked #6 for ‘core workouts’.

2. VOIP 101
This site ranks #3 (out of 7m results) on Google for primary keyword ‘voip 101’ see Here. It’s also ranked #6 for ‘core workouts’.

3. HYIP Guide
This site ranks #10 (out of 500k results) on Google for primary keyword ‘hyip guide’ see Here. It’s also ranked #1 for ‘hyip 101’.

4. Free Online Flash Games
This site ranks #3 (out of 4m results) on MSN for primary keyword ‘free online flash games’ see Here. It’s also ranked #5 for ‘online flash shooters’.

I have many more sites that are highly ranked, at one point I was top ranked for ‘hyip script’ on google, but I lost that when I stopped working on abchyip. But I should get that top position back again soon πŸ™‚

My #1 tip for improving your rankings (besides buying SEO Elite) is to get as many good link backs as possible. However, don’t go out and buy 5000 guaranteed link backs, that’s just guaranteed to get your site banned in Google.
