The blog traffic died about 50% in the last 10 days… Checking with others they are seeing the same. Glad to see lots of people were offline.
First of all welcome back, hope you had a great holiday vacation! Here is a quick recap on the 10 days at ShoeMoney.com
Raising 10k for Charity:
I raised 10,000.00 for charity by auctioning off my chest for Affiliate Summit West. Train Signal one the bid for 5200 but wanted to do 10k
Hydra Affiliate Network / Google Money Tree Legal Issues:
Someone promoting the google money tree system through the hydra affiliate network illegally using my images. We received tons of complaints from people disappointed we would endorse such a scam as the google money tree system which says it is giving you a free setup for only shipping fees the proceeds to bill you until you cancel.
To date Hydra has been completely uncooperative insisting instead to protect the person they have control of, and are profiting from, who has caused a lot of damage to our brand. We plan to file suit this week and I will post more information as we go through the discovery process (as my legal council permits).
I would like to thank all of the people who have provided us with all the evidence we need to move forward. All of your logs and screenshots are vital to bringing these people to justice.
New Computer From Intel and a Chance For You To Win It:
Intel sent me an amazing computer for christmas but after thinking about it and checking with Intel I decided ot give it away to a shoemoney.com reader! There is still a few days left to enter to win this BEAST!
Believe it or not I am soooo excited that the holidays are behind us. I had 4 christmases and lots of travel with kids. It was fun but I am glad its behind us 😉
