Google Arbitrage/MFA, Devcon, & Tips For Startup Sites – Net Income 6-19-2007

by Jeremy Schoemaker on June 20, 2007 · 30 comments

On last nights episodes of net income I was

=( But no fear I made it work (I think).

I talked a bit about all the latest hype with Google supposed banning of people doing Arbitrage and MFA’s then went into a eBay devcon wrapup talking about my SEO presentation and ending with giving some Tips For Startup Websites.

I am going to Las Vegas with my wife until Monday. Its the time away from my house that was not business or family related in about 3 years so I am pretty excited. Sorry about the short show recap.

Yo dude… I’ll be in LV for 5-6 days. Hit me up on my cell I’ll be playing at the wsop.

stop worrying about the money , while you’re there go and have a blast , you can worry about the money when you come back

The Net Income RSS feed that’s in the ITMS appears to be broken. It appears to be this feed:

Is this the correct feed?

Even though you were “all by yourself” you definitely made it work–great job. You should do more solo ‘gigs’ more often. Have fun in Vegas, baby!

5 Paul Bradish

Have fun in Vegas. What happens there, stays there.

6 Travel Notebook

Gonna hit up the WSOP while your in Vegas? Its a circus in LV right now. Not sure if that is what your looking for or not.

7 Travel Notebook

Make sure you hit the buffet at the Rio

8 nate

hmm why isnt the episode on the webmasterradio podcast feed or site yet? the link that shows up in my google reader doesnt work.

9 Ryan J. Parker

Going to Vegas tomorrow until Monday myself. Enjoy. ;)

10 Chris Kameir

Are you saying Google is NOT cracking down on arbitrage?

11 Joeychgo

Have a great time in Vegas —

Make sure you take her Downtown at night!

12 ShoeMoney

i dunno =( I never messed with feeds for the show

13 ShoeMoney

yes been saying that for a long time… did you not listen to the podcast?

14 Scot Smith


I’m curious to what you think about Carl Ocab, a 13 year old ranking higher than ProBlogger and thousands of others for “Make Money Online”.

15 Scot Smith

or should I say millions :) and do you really think this person is 13, or is it a gimmick?

16 eTown Landlord

I was thinking the same thing. He writes like he is much older and has some experience. Does anyone have any info on this guy?

17 Travel Notebook

Wait, so your saying that they are *not* cracking down on it?

I enjoyed the solo show actually; you did an awesome job interviewing yourself, Shoe, very well done!

19 website copywriter

…but you can always share your stories with us. Don’t worry, we won’t tell. ;) You and your wife have a safe trip now.

20 website copywriter

Isn’t that the World Series of Poker you’re referring to? They will be at the Rio All Suites in Vegas all month, if I’m not mistaken. You must have meant “circuit” rather than “circus” then.

21 website copywriter

All I know is he’s Filipino…and probably loving every second of fame he’s getting right now.

22 Dave

I have arbitrage sites with plr articles on them. Good ctr on almost all of them and well optimized for their keyword phrase. My cost per click has gone up to .20 to .30 cents a click. On what use to be my best site I added privacy policy, contact, about , disclaimer, and took all ads off of the index page. Do you have any ideas what I can do about this? Thanks, Dave

23 joe

in your audio, is ranking #50-60 on “make money online” Google serp, not #1. Google algo is correct.

Shoemoney 24 jamesB

heh shoe mentions it then magically he gets bumped… the power of a blog that gets read by Google people

25 Paul.

You sure get out to vegas a lot. I’ve never been.

26 CPA Affiliates

sweet man will download it now and give a listen on my flight back home.

27 Joeychgo

Arbitrage was something I never really got into. But many of the skills needed transfer into other philosophies that can make you successful such as choosing proper keywords.

Good stuff! I’ll listen again…..

29 printnpost

I was trying some of this..but didnt have much success. Does they really take off when you levagre your page with googles api so you can target higher payout words or am i just not doing something right here?

30 Trevor McNotDonald

I think its good that Google is finally managing to sort out the Arbitrage problem. I’ve banned quite a few dodgy URL’s from advertising at my site for fear of them performing arbs.
