General Chatter / Pop ups on some browsers for this forum?
« on: July 09, 2013, 01:59:16 PM »
I normally use Chrome as my browser of choice. I had to use someone else's computer a short while ago and decided to browse using Firefox (he doesn't have Chrome available!). When I browsed to my favourite forum  ;D (anonymously because I wan't logged in), I looked down the forum list and the "Internet Marketing" forum had a link enabled that I hadn't seen before. Where it says "Discuss internet marketing in general here", the words "internet Marketing" were linked and when I hovered over the link, it comes up as a pop up for something to do with internet Marketing.

Is that an acceptable way of "using or misusing" someone's forum? I am assuming it is NOT part of Jon's advertising strategy so it appears that FF is "hijacking" (is that the word?) certain phrases on the forum and using them with pop ups to try and divert visitors?

Email Clicker / Not Quite Sure?
« on: May 20, 2013, 09:15:36 PM »
I understand the idea of throw away email addresses: you use them where a site REQUIRES you to enter an email address but you don't want to get any spam back from them, or any other kind of communication? So you definitely don't use them if you want a reply?

For instance, on Keyword Canine, I can get "boosts" for my websites, where KC submits the site or pages that I want to give a "boost" to, to various link-building sites that will give me a link back to the page or site. I have received some verification emails back from these sites and have had to click a link in these to verify the submission of my site. It's ok when you only have a few sites but it could get tedious for lots of sites.

Where I am not quite sure is (1) are there any other reasons I would need a throw away address? (2) whether I develop the lists of names or does your site do this on a random basis and (3) why would I want to generate these for my site users?

Maybe I would need to have a big business going to need these?

iNeedArticles / Article rejected! My dashboard smothered in red!
« on: May 07, 2013, 09:42:20 AM »
OK - a bit dramatic but I had an article rejected by ineedarticles because it referred to the UK. The explanation said that ineedarticles could not cover UK articles at present because most of their writers are in the US and it takes too long to do research for a country they are not familiar with.

OK, I'm fine with that and I understand the message. Now, how do I cancel that article and take the big red swodge off my dashboard please?????????????????????????????

Article Builder / Add ineedarticles to AB?
« on: April 24, 2013, 01:35:50 PM »
I made this suggestion in the thread but possibly some people don't want to read right through that.  ;D

Would it be possible to add articles we have purchased from "ineedarticles" into a "reservoir" in AB, so that these articles could get posted automatically and backlinked just like normal AB articles? It would be great to be able to order articles on an area that is not covered in AB but which is complementary to AB for using as "guest posts" on blogs. I did not suggest this in ineedarticles because that is not a subscription tool but I think it could work well with AB.

It would also be great to be able to post the short ineedarticles blog comments from a reservoir inside AB, if that is possible.

Anyone else interested?

General Chatter / Advice on web sites?
« on: April 15, 2013, 02:30:14 PM »
I have a long standing web site that is doing nothing. It was set up some years ago to sell products but the products are now gone although the web site is still standing and doing nothing. It is based on one of the "old" hosts, and it CANNOT have a word press blog set up on it (I have already asked). The domain name was provided along with the hosting - I know - mistake - but that's where it stands at present. Every page in the web site is indexed, though it's not high in the rankings. I have no problem redoing a web site (I have software that makes it easier) and I was going to keep all the same page names, to keep the indexing going.

I am considering what to do with this old web site and would appreciate any thoughts.

Currently, I am thinking of setting up a new Word press site (on a different host) with a different, though related domain name and using some articles from the new "ineedarticles" service to create the Wordpress site and to refresh the pages on the old site. I could set up some affiliate links from Amazon (or elsewhere) for similar products to what used to be sold and direct traffic from one site to the other.

Should I send traffic from the old web site to the new Word press blog or the other way round? Which direction would be better or should I not bother? I understand that affiliate links from Amazon should not go direct to an amazon page but to a web page? I would quite like to add google adsense to the new Wordpress site but would try to add it to the old web site if that were a better idea.

Anyone any ideas? Or just not bother?
Thanks for any comments.

New Product Ideas / Copying others' web sites SUCKS!
« on: April 08, 2013, 01:17:47 AM »
I belong to a couple of article sites and currently, one of the big topics there is that some writers are having their web page content stolen and republished elsewhere. It's a big topic for these people and it's NOT just a line or two or even "content curation". From the comments there and the work that various people have done, there appears to be some kind of software that looks for published content in various popular topics and copies it entirely, republishing an entire page, often along with pictures, quizzes, etc. These people are online writers, depending on their writing for their income and their page views are dropping because of this type of theft. The thief is even using a google adsense account to get income from these stolen articles. Some people on the article sites have asked for software that stops copying but apparently there is nothing available for stopping professional or software copying. The CSS script that stops the "right-click" copy and paste deters the everyday reader but apparently not the software that does this, as it avoids using Java or similar and scrapes the hub directly from the server.

The writers have posted DMCA notices but apparently this thief changes domain names regularly and just pops up again. They have also complained to adsense, to see if the account can be stopped, however, all this takes considerable time away from writing new articles.

I own TBS and IAW (among others) and use them but I use them to get an article structure and find facts and then rewrite my content, using different sources. I don't want to steal someone else's content and pass it off as my own.

I don't know that there is anything that could be done to stop people copying someone's site and passing it off as their own but is there a piece of software (rather like accurank) where you could insert your new article, maybe get a time-stamp on them and that would keep a constant lookout for copyright thieves? If not, can you create a piece of software that does this (or something else helpful) that would help writers keep track of what they had written (or maybe it would take the url to the article, rather than the content). It could also include a DMCA, provide a link to the thieving site and maybe track down any useful information that can be gathered online, such as clickbank IDs, adsense numbers, amazon affiliate numbers etc?

I certainly think from the comments I am reading at the moment that a number of writers would jump at the opportunity to have access to a piece of software that keeps a guardian eye on their sites / articles and alerts them to any illegal copying, together with information on the url, etc. I know people can use "Google author" to claim authorship but a lot of people don't want to give google more info than necessary.


Can you add the "thank you" button to the ineedarticles and the accurank tracker forums (fora) please?

New Product Ideas / I need pictures
« on: April 03, 2013, 11:19:25 PM »
Now all I need is a similar site that provides pictures to go with the IneedArticles articles. Either copyright free or pictures that my fee for finding them covers the cost. And also includes the correct attribution text for including in an article.  ;D
