Although I’m not surprised that it has been sold, I’ve had some speculations that it was sold way back when it was still on blogspot because when it transferred to its own domain, everything changed, the design, the feel of the site and even the writer’s voice.
Still it’s a good sell for an 11 month old blog.
Pagerank, it plagued all blogs, forums and websites. But is it that important? My friend Dean Hunt explains the BIG confusion:
Here is how I see the Pagerank confusion… if a car is your website, and your speed is your success, then the Pagerank is the speedometer. It shows you how fast you are going, and gives an overview of how powerful the car is etc…
However, the webmaster industry see it like this:
The speedometer is what makes the car move.
Not the engine, the wheels etc… it is all about the speedometer.
According to their theories, if you remove the speedometer, then the car will stop. Whereas the reality is that the car will continue to run perfectly, but it won’t be as easy to measure its speed.
Take a look at my recent viral experiment, our iPod Giveaway. It had over 240 entrants, and over 50 bloggers took the time to write about it on their sites. On the graph of RSS subscribers below, can you tell where our contest began?:
As you can clearly see, after the launch of our contest in September, the curve of our RSS count looks a little exponential (and by my definition viral). This is just one simple example of how easy it can be to have something go viral. Take a look at your own site or business and try and find something that works for you.
Can’t decide what widget to use on your blog? Schoe made a great post reporting how much traffic he gained on widgets – specifically BlogRush, MyBlogLog, BumpZee, Sphinn & Scratchback.
Guess who wins?

I know it’s another review of my blog, but this one is pretty unique and got my point. Here’s my favorite part:
You know…I don’t even have to type this section here because you can clearly see what the inspirational message is, but…………..I’m going to continue this and review why I reviewed Carl Ocab. At the age of 14, bringing in a revenue of around $800-1000+, why wouldn’t you want to be like him? I can probably say that people probably think that because of his age, he receives more attention, but that has been proven wrong. His tips and strategies help all of us make money online. There are many that still have doubts that Carl is actually the man behind the blog, but just take a look at it and prove yourself wrong.
There’s nothing like a good pat in the back – most importantly by one of the big daddies in the internet. I want to give Jack Humphrey (Author of the Authority Black Book) a heads up for featuring me on his blog.
