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,

Way behind the plans !

Hi There,

Long time no see ;)

No I wasn’t that busy not to be able to update the blog, I just recovered from illness, some kind of weird ones that caused me spend most of my time sleeping (LOL ) but believe me, I am not joking !

For me, 6-8 hours sleeping a day is too much and was considered as waste of valuable time but since weeks ago, I slept 12 hours a day as average and it took me way behind my plans. (8 hours at work, so just 4 hours home)

I have just 15 days to hit my first target at $500 a month with Just Online business and I even lost what I’ve gained so far.

Anyway I will try my best to do it.

Currently there are some good news for myself:

Casinonewbies is getting out of google Sandbox (age factor) and is getting nice amount of traffic for highly competitive keywords.(i.e. “online casino”)

After a big drop in LiveProxies traffic (because it got blocked in several filtering systems), now it’s backing up again gaining good positions at Serps specially Google and MSN resulting in getting 60% Organic traffic, 30% referrals and 10% Direct.

Google Analytics shows that SudokuDay is doing GREAT ! Getting all it’s traffic from Google and Technorati and it’s beyond my expectations as it doesn’t have much content and just updates itself with new puzzles once a day.

SmileyGen‘s analytics was like a shocking news in the past week as I found it standing in the first position in Yahoo for a very good related search term without any attempt for optimization.

I don’t know if I have ever mentioned about BulgariaHiTech or not but if I didn’t it is a Pagerank 5 domain I purchased a while ago, started a technology blog on it and because of its high Pagerank, it keeps getting unbelievable ranks in Google for most of the new postings I made. Still I am not using all it’s potentials but it definitely can be a big asset to hit my target.

And there is one more business I started recently. some of you may have been noticed from the list on the right side of Scriptbloggers; AlliedNetworkInc.

AlliedNetworkInc requires its own post as I have a lot to say about it.

In the remaining time (around 15 days) I will try to update this blog daily so keep in touch.

Cheers,

Soroush

College or NOT to succeed online

I’m interested in hearing peoples opinions on whether you think college’s such as Collins Art School can play a major role in a web developers success. I for one have been to University for three years, infact i’ve just finished and at the moment i feel that i could of done just aswell without it in the online business – that doesn’t mean i didn’t need to go to college to do what i want ‘offline’.

Why do i think College is not necessary to succeed online? – Firstly information about blogging, marketing of websites ect.. is very rarely discussed in college unless it’s a very specific type of course, perhaps a subsection of a module would skim the surface lightly. Today to succeed in the online business of affiliate’s and PPC you need knowledge and this can be obtained from one place. Yes the internet!

This is just a small introductory post to a new blogseries here at scriptbloggers which discusses various Educational aspects of blogging.

Design simple but effective

After scouring the web in the search of inspiration for my own blog design i came across the leisuretime promotions this type of design is a perfect example of simple but effective webdesign in action. The colours used are very eyecatching but do not put you off and the ‘tearing’ effects add something special. This is the type of design im going to try and recreate for my blog – using my own styles ect.. but looking to create something unique and eye catching. Let’s hope i can achieve it!

This type of design looks great on an activity website such as lesiure sites and i have had so many theme changes to my blog i think it’s time i tried to create my own.

What’s coming soon? – we take a look at the ITpays results and updates on the Ebay affiliate project so stay tuned for that!

Blog back online

Well it’s been a while since scriptbloggers was taken offline due to the fact that i had so much on i thought it would be best to close it down for a while and start back up with a new design and some fresh content. I’ll be adding some old content to the site that i think will benefit some readers.

Welcome back to any readers that previously took an active roll in the scriptbloggers blog and i hope you enjoy the new site as i will be updating the website everyday with some great content.
