Adsense relevancy will easily increase your CTR, and can give you a huge boost in earnings. I’m relatively new to blogging, and websites in general. I don’t know a lot of the fancy terms, and I don’t know all of the best SEO/money making strategies. However, I’ve been with Adsense for a few months now, and just learned a neat trick. You can tell Adsense which words to spider while it’s looking for words to use in the advertisements. By using some HTML comments tags,... (more...)

divShare Adds Embedded Audio Feature

Posted by Alex Bailey On January - 29 - 2007

Back in December I blogged about divShare, and how it has the potential to be a strong rapid share competitor. Today they’ve introduced a feature to embed audio in your website, making it a very unique file sharing website. A week ago or so, they announced you could upload MP3 files and stream them from their server. In that post they announced the ability to embed the songs is in the near future, but today it’s a reality. The player is very sleek, and uses Macromedia’s flash... (more...)

Posted by Alex Bailey On January - 27 - 2007

I’ve been an Adsense publisher for a few months now, and overall it’s been an enjoyable experience. I’ve had little problems using it, and there are a lot of nice features. However this month while working on my theme, I accidentally clicked my own ad. That’s obviously against Google’s ToS, and could get you banned. I quickly emailed Adsense, and all was well. This got me thinking. How can I make it so I can’t click my own ads? Well Greasemonkey to the rescue! To... (more...)

Launchy: Launch Apps And Search Your PC In Real Time

Posted by Alex Bailey On January - 26 - 2007

After test driving Vista for a few months, there is one feature I miss most; the ability to type part of a word in the run box, bringing up results in real time. From there you can simply hit enter to execute the program in question. If you’re on a Windows XP box, all hope is not lost. Launchy is an Open Source application to mimic the Vista function.
