Make Facebook Your Friend

November 30, 2007

Facebook LogoI’m a pretty consistent user of Facebook, and thought I’d try something out. On Facebook, people have the ability to discuss/donate/support causes, and the discussions made in these causes can be a valuable traffic source for your website.

So recently I’ve started up a new website called Pinkoogle where it’s basically Google but your search results are displayed in a Pink theme. The intention of the website (no real profits yet) is to have all profit made from the Google Ads on the website, go to a breast cancer charity – the site was originally made for Pink October but was only finished on October 28.

On Facebook, I noticed the cause for Support the Campaign for Breast Cancer Research. In the discussion of that cause, I made a very brief post saying “www.pinkoogle.com – Searching for a better cause. It’s Google but for Breast Cancer. The traffic started rolling in and it was for a good cause. See, Facebook can be very helpful!

Below are some of the stats to further explain my point. Keep in mind that the website has only been up for 30 days, and NO PAYED ADVERTISING has been done. (over the jump)

Being AdSense Safe

November 25, 2007

google_adsenseThis is talked about often, as it is a major issue for blog-owners. When I talk about Being AdSense Safe though, I mean being safe with your account. No one wants to be in a position where they lose their AdSense account, and this does happen often, believe it or not.

But how to you protect yourself from being click-bombed (one of the main reasons that accounts are banned)? Well, there’s really only one easy solution. Monitor your account through Google Analytics (or another stat-keeper), and make sure that whenever the click-through-rate (CTR) seems too high, you CONTACT GOOGLE! through their site. This is crucial that you get in contact with them, and not just sit around hoping they won’t notice.

Don’t click on your ads. Don’t ask others to click on ads for you. And Contact Google when in despair. They may not reply, but they sure as hell have your message which is all you need to be safe.

Hello early-viewers. Little overview of Blozanga.

Basically Blozanga’s another (small) about-blogging website, all about making money, quality posts, using blogging platforms, etc. (I use mainly WordPress so there’ll be a lot of info on that too.)

Blozanga will draw a lot of inspiration from sites like Problogger, Bloggingpro.com, and others. It’s just that when I get these ideas whilst blogging, I think “thats useless to me, I may aswell tell people about it”, but normally I can’t. Now I can.

Now that you know what the blog’s about, here’s a little info on me. I’m Bryce, I live in Australia, I run a few websites (itsALLmac.com, gosneaker, SoMuchCrap, and others), and I get lots and lots and lots of ideas – most useless, but ideas nonetheless.

So, that’s done. Enjoy the blog.
