My existing projects need attention

I’m usually good at starting a whole new idea doing all the hard parts and then leaving it AS IS in the worst time, when everything is 95% done, and I get busy to start other interesting ideas. I think I can make some automated cash flow doing small modifications on some of the current websites I have.

BulgariaHiTech gets really good rankings on Google for most of my new posts within a day and even in competitive terms, and I think I’m crazy not using its potentials as it can be a perfect source of income through affiliate marketing. This is going to be my first priority in the following week. I will keep here updated.

LiveProxies was a project of mine I started March 23rd 2007 without any commercial thought and just as a coding, wp modification and SEO practice. WordPress did the miracle and a few days later I was facing a reasonable amount of traffic coming from search engines specially MSN so I opened the site for proxy owners to submit their site for free even without link-back since I didn’t care about Google and the Pagerank I may lose. Process of reviewing and approving the site was a little time-consuming but it was ok since I had 2-3 submissions a day that could take a couple of minutes every week so not a big deal. But little by little as the site’s traffic increased, proxy owners found it as a good source of traffic and it is getting ~15 submissions a day as an average.

Two months ago I tried selling sponsored result (top 3 spot) at a fixed monthly/weekly price and it was successful with mostly happy advetisers but it requires me to manually add the advertiser’s link and remove them once their listing expire and re-market the spot for sale and this is the part I’m not good at.

Now that the site has enough visitors and advertisers I’m thinking to implement a PPC system to add/remove/rank advertisers based on their available funds and bid and I think this is the best way for both parties, me and advertisers.

Today I made the first step and added a click counter and soon will add the rest of requirements. Hope it will work.

SudokuDay was another project I started a year ago, did all the difficult part of php programming but again put it aside till May 2007. A little work made it a daily semi-automated Sudoku generator and because of its frequent updates it started getting targeted traffic from search engines but there are some minor but important features missing.

1- A timer as most of Sudoku players prefer to see the time spent to resolve the puzzle.

2- PDF generator as there are people interested to print the daily puzzle and use it offline.

I’m hoping to add these two features early this week.

Keep in touch.Cheers,

Soroush
