Thank you for the advice, SurfSmarter.

To be honest, I am very lazy person when it comes to domains and I usually forget about the renewal until the very last day, or the day after. That is why I didn't know the coupon codes for renewal even exist  :laugh:

There is no universal marketing strategy that will do the magic and make sales go wild. It mostly depends on the offered product/service and the auditorium you are trying to reach, but I think that in any case the best marketing strategy includes a bit of everything.

*off topic alert*  :laugh:

That's just shocking!  Most spammers aren't so subtle.  ;)

Oh, you have no idea how subtle they can be! One of the community sites I'm running is struggling with quite a lot of spammers. By quite a lot I mean - 30-50 new ones per day. The moderation team is awesome so we're dealing with spam pretty well, but lately we are getting a lot of smart and subtle spammers. The other day one registered to the site and posted in his profile something like 'I'm greateful to the site owner who invited me to this lovely place and made me stay with all you wonderful people...' I thought the other admin or one of the mods invited him. Every mod thought admins invited him. Other admin thought I've invited him. And he was successfully spamming the place for a whole week before we figured him out   8)shh

Hi Mark,

Oh, yes - I so understand you. I have one huge project I'm working on for a last two years. The end is near and hopefully everything will be set up till the end of summer, but I have the very same questions as you on my mind.

The only advice I have is - you can't know if you don't start. And vacation is just a perfect place to clear your mind and get ready for turbulent period.

..If he wants to post more ads in his home city or adds in another city, it requires some organization and stealth. In either case, he'll need a completely different account with a different IP, different email and different confirmation email. For another town - in addition to all the rest, he'll need a local phone number in that area to confirm the account (could be a fried, a cheap burner phone with an LA number, whatever.)

Thank you very much for this! I just couldn't find out why some of my ads are constantly getting deleted, but this gave me a perfect explanation.

Hello all,

I visited more than 10 different sites and forums to know about SEO method. But now I am totally confused and frustrated about this topic. I don't know how many method still there in SEO. I know anly few names like White Hat, Black Hat, Brown Hat but could you please make a easy description all of them and except white hat which one is the best and effective for my website and for my online marketing? Any answer would be highly appreciated.  Thanks in advance. Have a nice day !!!

Hi there :)

I am not sure that Brown Hat exists as a real SEO technique. Maybe you were referring to the Gray Hat technique?

The easiest way to explain White/Gray/Black SEO Techniques is to say that White Hat is a technique where you make pages for human users, Black Hat is where you create pages for search engines, and Gray one is somewhere in the middle. So, if you're using a White Hat technique, you will create content relevant to your domain name and keywords used on the page, your backlinks will also be real, the content will be useful for the visitors  and your site will be generally user friendly. If you are using the Black Hat technique, you will have plenty of hidden keywords, white texts on white background, misleading menus and content, and your backlinks will be all over the internet no matter of the content on your page. White Hat technique requires quite a lot of work while Black ones don't. Still, Black Hat techniques are illegal (not in front of the law but in front of the search engines) and your page will most likely be blacklisted and banned from search engines listings. This is why Gray Hat exist - it is actually a fine balancing between hard work and illegal techniques so you can eventually end up high on search engines listings and not banned from them.
This would be a short practical explanation of White/Gray/Black Hat (there are way more parameters and methods included in each, but that is the topic for the book and not one post).

Here comes the fun part  :laugh:

However, those SEO techniques were 'invented' a long time ago and many things have changed. You can just forget everything you know about the White/Gray/Black Hat and start learning SEO from the scratch. Search engines are smarter than ever and Black Hat is practically dead - you'll get blacklisted and banned from search engines as soon as your page is indexed. Also, SEO trends are changing fast and at this moment everything is about the user friendly websites with high quality (preferably long) content and quality (and if possible social media) backlinks.

Actually I think this is the wrong place to ask that question...

While "we" might not like, or even hate, so many pop-ups, we are not exactly the norm, we've been around, we've all probably been through the good, bad and ugly of sales funnels. As annoying as they can be to us, they still might work on the majority, and makes the pop-up pushers money.

And as we know, some marketers test and track their funnels, so they might actually be working well for them.

There sure is something in this. If they weren't doing the job, they'd be gone till now and no one would use them. Personally, I can survive one or two if I really like the content, but more that that will just make me leave for good.

Dumb question time again - what does 'UX' stand for? I think I get it - but just in case...

I'm not gonefishing, but I believe I can answer this one. It stands for User Experience. It's always all about the users when talking about Google.

But at first make sure you're not banned by Google for spammy post or back link your URL onto spammy sites. Then you may suffer a lot :(

I would just like to add - just as looking for bad backlinks and spammy posts, it is really important not to have duplicate content as that will lead to the removing the site from the Google listings.

Wow! This sounds like a great plan that could work. I'm curious to hear how things are going so far?

Thank you for the great tip, Karen :)

So, if I understood correctly, the main difference between GoDaddy and NameCheap is in the renewal charge? I guess renewal coupons are not the same as those for fresh domains?

I have to say, this is the first time I've heard someone's page was suspended because of one spam comment and I think it's too bad to remove all the comments and commenting option because of that, but I understand you don't want to go through that awful experience ever again.

I'm glad everything's ok now :)

Unless you are 100% positive that your potential client sees you as an awesome designer who is brought to the Earth by some strange force to make the world all beautiful, or is someone you know, it is never a good idea to tell them their current website is ugly. Sure they will hear you, but will most likely be too offended to let you do the job.

Before starting the conversation I make sure to know all the weaknesses of the current website. Low traffic, bad coding, non-optimized images, bad Google ranking, lack of features, etc. Once I have that, I start the conversation saying that I think their website is lovely, but a bit outdated and that I have an idea how to make it better. New features, mobile version, Google, SEO and Facebook are great keywords to make clients interested. Once they're hooked up it's quite easy to tell them you'd like to tweak the appearance a bit too.

I'm usually skipping the mock-up part until I'm sure we're on the same page.

Hope this helps :)

Hi everyone!

I'm not really good in virtual introductions, but will try..
I am a full time web developer, specialized in social media and communities. I found this forum searching for some internet marketing tools and after few hours of reading decided to stay for a while.
(if you don't mind, I will skip the part about my hobbies and free time for now, as I doubt you'd be interested in reading books about animals and artsy things  :laugh:)

I'm hoping to learn something new here, and if there's anything I can do for you, just let me know  :smiley:
