Internet Marketing News form all over the world, what I’m doing right now, and what’s happening at my sites. Keep track of my portable empire.
Ah, well. Last month I tried out a new blog theme, based on a so called framework.
Within 1 month my Google traffic went down 40%.
I could have changed some things on the new theme, but unfortunately the framework is badly documented. Only blatant, side wide changes are easy to implement. The moment you [...]
There have been a few services offering RSS feeds from your Google plus stream. One by one, they seem to go out of service.
Another one just vanished, leaving my g+ site bar widget empty.
I'm looking forward to the g+ API becoming good enough to pull the stream without external services!
For now, my [...]
I'm releasing two new tools for everyone to use. They have been online for some time, but only for my team, and not officially linked on my blog.
The Line Break Remover
The name says it all. Enter any text, press the button, and you'll get your text back with line breaks removed.
Today I'm switching to a new theme. It might be bumpy for a while, I have to recreate some custom programming. If you run into problems, especially with the online tools, please let me know.

You may think this is a joke, but it is not. German privacy protectors asked web sites owners to remove Facebook like buttons from their sites, and threaten to fine € 50,000. They claim Facebook Like buttons and Fan [...]
UPDATE MARCH 2012: I've changed my internet business blog to a new WordPress theme, and the Disqus comments didn't look nice. So, for now, I'm disabling disqus. Maybe I'll come back to adjust the comments CSS, so that disqus will look ok, after everything else is working fine. At first, other theme changes have priority.
With Google+ continuously rising to popularity, people just have to wonder what kind of people are behind this ever-growing company. So, what kind of personalities, habits, and responsibilities do you think the men behind Google have?
Danny Sullivan, the editor-in-chief of Search Engine Land, helps us discover the answer by holding an interview session with [...]
Birthdays are important as they signify life and a great beginning. That is especially true when we are talking about the birth of the internet, of the World Wide Web.
Some think that the internet and the World Wide Web are the same thing; people use these two terms interchangeably, in fact. However, they are [...]
On August 1, Adobe Systems publicly added a new product to their line of web design and animation programs. It’s still in beta, and it’s named Adobe Edge.

Google launches another part of the Page Speed family today—Page Speed Service—a service that assists web masters and developers in optimizing and loading their sites faster.
As we already know, Internet users can be a very, very irritable and impatient bunch. That is exactly the reason why webmasters like us aim to optimize our site’s [...]
“Against our privacy.” “Unprofitable.” “Leaves us with little choice.”
These seem to be the issues that pushed Google administrators to change Google Places’s content and formatting and present a revamped Google Places last Thursday afternoon.
If you visited Google Places on July 22, you have probably already noticed the difference—third-party reviews are completely removed. This means that [...]
What are you going to do if something you invested time and effort on starts controlling you instead? Of course, you will surely start looking for alternatives that give you freedom and privacy! That is exactly the driving force of people who have left Facebook and started broadening their networks through Google+.
Facebook has, for [...]

Okay, so we know people are spamming the web with crappy content. Content that is scraped from other sites, badly spun, or at worst even translated to a different language and then translated back to English.
Now one those web masters was “smart” enough to complain about his site not being indexed in the Google [...]

When you login for the free downloads it seems that the login is not working and you can't get the download.
Actually it is working, but you have [...]
The reality is that changes are coming… They must come. You must share in bringing them. ~John Hersey~
You’ve probably made that mistake yourself.
Excited by unlimited opportunities you take on dozens or (in my case) hundreds of projects…and in the end there’s little chance of creating anything of excellence.
Simply because you’re diverting [...]

So why did my friends warn me?
Because in April the Thai people celebrate the New Year. They call it “Songkran” and funnily it’s not celebrated on the same day in the whole country, but the party moves through the country [...]
