Few Monday Questions on Tuesday!
Why do so many people call you showmoney?
When a lot of foreign people see me at conferences they say showmoney I think they just pronounce shoe like show. I think then via word of mouth people think show instead of shoe. That or people think I am a showoff. Showmoney Shoemoney Shoemonkey … I have been called worse 😉
I was just wondering if you can point me in the direction of some useful PPC websites/blogs/forums please? Do think Blogs or Forums is better?
First of all for those in rio linda ppc is pay per click and usually used in reference to buying advertising through programs like google adwords, yahoo search marketing or microsoft Adcenter.
Ok lets see…
My friend Dave has a really good one over at cpa affilaites. I think its a must read for anyone doing PPC.
Pepperjamsearch has a pretty good blog going. They post quite a bit off that topic (ppc) but the PPC specific posts are really good. I do not think there is another SEM company that discloses such transparency.
Also I highly recommend you check out BumpZee. Most well respected affiliates roll there.
A lot of people will post on forums because they can be anonymous. This can be good and bad. Good because they will disclose information that can be a really great warning to others about experiences they have had with companies. Bad because you dont really know if they are telling the truth. As far as posts about ppc techniques you will read opinions every which way on forums. They can inspire you to try and test new stuff which is always good. Just be careful.
What forums do I like… I like them all. Maybe some people can suggest the forums they like and why?
Which is better forums or blogs for info?
Well here is my opinion as alluded to earlier. Blogs are good but a lot of times people can be wishywashy because of there relationship with companies. I personally like companies that tell the good and the bad. Pepperjams blog for instance points out stuff like Yahoo Search Marketing giving them a refund of 10,000$ for invalid clicks or how AdBrite sends them shitty traffic. Now if I would have saw this on a forum I would have probably not even given it a second look but since its on the company blog of the worlds largest Search Engine Marketing agency and recently named to the INC 500 Top Fastest Growing Companies… its not like they are going to lie.
Shoe I saw last week your friend daveN announced he is going to have Seo Training conferences around the world. What is your thought on that?
Well… You have David Naylor, Greg Boser, and Jennifer Slegg. SEO wise I can not name 3 other people that have such a vast knowledge of SEO (well besides Aaron Wall but I hear he is already booked 😉 ). From what I understand there target is corporate and I doubt they will ever have trouble filling seats.
I know you are a Lost fan what is your opinion of the second half of this season?
Boy I gotta tell ya I was super pissed when they took those 3 months off or whatever. That was super stupid. I think all of the shows have been great except for the one about desmonds life. That one was kind of boring. This weds episode looks pretty kickass!
Do you think you will ever learn the difference between there and their?
Dillsmack is SOOOOooo cute!! Is he Single?!?
I don’t ask about people I work withs lovelife…. the ShoeMoney™ posse will be in full effect at SES NYC you can ask him yourself 😉
What is the auctionads system you have on the left side of your blog. When I click on the ads by auctionads I get a page that asks for a username and password
I am beta testing a new program. Come back next Monday for more details.
