I just Paid $43,000

So I went and paid off all of my credit cards that I have been using to advertise and the last of my debt as well.

$26,000 BAMMO!  GONE!!!

Now to get ready for tax time I opened up an online HSBC Direct savings account.  I just sent them $17,000.  KAPOW!!!!

The good news?  Azoogle Ads has gotten me completely out of debt.  My big earners are gone and I’m searching for some new ones and hopefully Google will fall back in love with me.  I thought paying them nearly $21,000 in one month would have been enough to ensure their love.

 

Google’s like a super expensive girl that won’t give er up!

 

However congratulate me on paying off all my $18,000 in credit card debt and having a whole bunch of fun while doing it.

 

See you at Pub Con!

October Affiliate Earnings

After last month I estimated my earnings for this month to be around $6,000.  That is because a major offer that I was promoting ended.

Here is my previous earnings.

 
Cost
Revenue
Income
July
$1,106.52
$3,423.28
$2,316.76
August
$8,809.45
$20,100.64
$11,291.19
September
$12,576.59
$27,066.74
$14,490.15

 

So how did October break down?

Costs
Google: $20,996.38
Yahoo: $2,142.08
Total: $23,138.46

Revenue
CPA Empire: $814.50
Never Blue Ads: $1441.00
Azoogle: $44,223.76

Total: $46,479.26

So that means I actually earned $23,340.80!

That is way over the $6,000 that I thought I would be making.  Why such the huge difference?  Well, when my #1 offer failed I took the time to look at my other offers.  I examined the statistics and made changes.  My costs are WAY up.  I am still making hundreds a day, but lately my profit has dropped to about 1/3 of whatever I spend.

It’s time to re-examine things yet again and push forward.

Seriously though, next month isn’t going to be like this month UNLESS I change things yet again.

Party Like a Search Engine Rockstar

Here are my reasons why I should win the “Party Like a Search Engine Rockstar” contest.

The Reasons Why I want to go! (skip these boring reasons and go down to the other list)

1. I turn 30 this coming Monday the 29th.  I need this.
2. I’ve recently been able to make some Search Engine Rockstar Money and need to hob-nob with complete search engine rockstars.
3. Last time I was in Vegas I was 13 years old.  I was visiting my super religious family that actually went there to watch the G-Rated entertainment.  Circus-Circus, white tigers etc…  I owe Vegas a really visit.

The Reasons why the other rockstars want me there.

 1.  Human Shield – I am 5’11″ and 230 pounds.  I can curl 135 pounds and am way over due for a beating.  If the Search Engine Paprazzi act up and start swinging I can take a beating better than Homer Simpson.

2. I just turned 30 and have something to prove. 

3. Partying like a rockstar on the weekends and especially on out of town trips is what I live for.  Imagine Frank the Tank out with you.  I can easily ratchet up my normal “Rockstar Partiness” to “Search Engine Rockstar Partiness”.
4. I can beat ShoeMoney in thumb-wrestling.

5. I’ll take the fall if the cops get involved.
6. I have been in beerfest training.  See video below.  I am the last guy to go on the right.  I am wearing the dark green polo.

WARNING: Excessive use of the ‘F’ word, but in a fun way which makes it ok.

Get $5 Pay Pal by Geiger Linking

I am still not the #1 Geiger.  So because of this I am going to give anybody who links to me in a blog post and uses the word “Geiger” $5!  The only catch is that your site needs to have some PR.  PR1 is fine.  I expect you to keep the post up so my Geiger experiment stays valid.

Be part of Geiger history!

Just leave a comment here or use the contact page to let me know you posted about me.

I will spend up to 100 AT LEAST.  So if you have multiple PR blogs here’s your chance.  Hey, starving college kids.  I’m looking in your direction!

I May Hate Dell

Ever since College (and during) I have always had people come to me and ask me to build them a computer.  In the very beginning I actually did this.  It “QUICKLY” became apparent that this was going to be more trouble than it was worth.

For years after I told everybody to “Get a Dell”.  Now I am not so certain.

I recently learned that you can deduct the full expense of a computer from your taxes so I opted to buy a Dell Vostro with a 24 inch monitor.  Well, the monitor came and it didn’t work.  I guess they don’t quality check their stuff.

Now after talking to Dell 4 times and sending 1 email that never got responded to I am “supposed” to be getting a working monitor tomorrow.  This is almost a month after I ordered it.

So consider Lenovo for your next purchase.

Magic Yahoo 4%

Have you tried using Yahoo Search Marketing lately?  I always disliked it in the past.  It never performed very well for me.

Now I may be changing my tune.  It all depends on 4%.  If you have at least a 4% clickthrough rate your quality score will be pretty good.

So keep this in mind when you are writing your ads.  You have to write them to get a high CTR (clickthrough rate) and a high conversion rate.

Free Amazon.com 2 day shipping

Here’s a Amazon.com little trick (and my good deed of the week) to get yourself 2 day shipping for free or overnight shipping for $3.99.

Step 1. Sign up for Amazon Prime using this link. free amazon shipping link
Step 2. Order your stuff.
Step 3. Cancel Amazon Prime in less than a month.

 

Now what’s the catch?  Well, there’s 2 catches.
1. You need to enter your credit card.
2. You need to cancel you Amazon prime in less than 30 days or get charged $79.

Now that seems easy doesn’t it!?  Well, it’s hard to say no to free 2 day shipping for a year while at the same time not paying sales tax for anything you order from them.  A lot of people are also too lazy to cancel.

However, if you’re a starving student trying to get a package/gift/whatever someplace super fast, or if you’re just frugal, this plan is awesome!

 

For the record though, I am keeping Amazon Prime.
