Dot Com Lifestyle Journey Continues
First Published: ADawnJournal.com Published Date : March 1, 2009
Today, I will update you on a few things on my persuasion to live a Dot Com Lifestyle. The following paragraphs may not be related to each other.
Dot Com Lifestyle
A Dawn Journal has been on Google’s number one search results match for “Dot Come Lifestyle” for a while. Right now, it is no longer the number one match, but it’s still staying on the first page as the 3rd or 4th match. Hopefully, it will get back to the top position again shortly. For the “Canada personal finance” key phrase search, ADJ has been in the number one position for awhile.
As an Internet entrepreneur, I run many websites and own a handful of domains. A lot of these websites do not bear my name and as such visitors will not be able to tell who owns these sites when they browse. However, I will always tell you about those sites which have my name stamped on it, such as Canada Personal Finance Blog or Canada Personal Finance Website. I have decided to launch two new websites under my name.
These sites are:
The Green Living Blog – www.thegreenlivingblog.com
Simple Personal Development – www.simplepersonaldevelopment.com
Although these sites are now live, the site design has not been fully completed yet. I will write a post and issue a press release to let you know once they are 100% complete.
ADJ Is Making More Money Gradually
ADJ’s overall monthly income is going up gradually. In its first year ADJ made almost no money, but now I am seeing an increase in income slowly. Internet Entrepreneurship does not make you money overnight. You have to put in lot of research, effort, time, and hard work to become successful.
Trying New Ads
You may have noticed a new eBay ad displaying on ADJ on the right panel. I am trying this new ad to see what kind of money it makes. Also, I have replaced Kontera (www.kontera.com) In-text ad with Infolinks (www.infolinks.com). Since I have done this, my In-text revenue is up five-fold.
eBay and Amazon
What I like about eBay is that they have sophisticated Geo-Targeting technology. For instance, if a visitor from Australia clicks on it, it will take him to eBay Australia; if a visitor clicks from Canada, it will take her to eBay Canada. In this way, I am not missing global visitors. Amazon does not have this technology – I use Amazon Canada for my Canadian sites and Amazon USA for all other sites. This is quite a headache, as I need to create and maintain ads from more than one Amazon account.
I spoke with my programmer regarding Amazon’s Geo-targeting incapability. He mentioned that he might be able to write a PHP Script that would detect visitors’ country and show the appropriate Amazon ad based on its location. If this can be done, it will save me a lot of time and hassle.
That’s all for today. I will keep you updated on my Internet Entrepreneurship and there will be more posts on this shortly.
