Okay! Okay! Okay! I'm Addicted!

I can't quit! IM still consumes my mind! I've decided to start working on IM again! I've been using One Week Marketing and it is incredible! I'm learning so much and all of it is starting to come together now. I got so focused on PPC that I could'nt see any other possiblility. Well, this is definitly for me!

I wrote 3 Ezine Articles and linked them to my Learn How To Play The Guitar Online website. So far one of them is approved and is ranking #2 on Google organic search with my keyword! :oO This is huge for me! I now can see how this will work withoug having to pay for traffic! I'm so excited.

I also wrote 3 blog posts to 3 free ad blogs mentioned in One Week Marketing with my out going links to my Learn How To Play The Guitar Online website.

Tomorrow I will do a few more check's like stated in One Week Marketing. Come Monday I'm starting a new campaign! Yeay! :O)

Until Next post............ God Bless

My Wife is taking over!

Well, I've decided to take a break away from IM for now. My wife Arina is becoming very good and learning a lot. Plus, I have a full time job that could be getting neglected with how much my mind is on IM.

Anyway, Arina has been taking the One Week Marketing course by Pot Pie Girl and is thrilled! She never thought she would enjoy article marketing so much! She said that it has become very easy for her and would probably do this for fun even if she wasn't making any money. She's find the tools that Pot Pie Girl provides really helps to understand this whole IM thing!

I'll be updating my blog regularly to tell you how she's doing.....

Until next post..... God Bless!

Fed up with PPC & Google!

Well, I've had it! I'm sorry folks... But, GOOGLE just plain sucks! if it's not one thing? It's another. I was getting great CTR (7%) and was paying more than a $1/click. I was just trying to get my quality score up so that I wasn't paying so much or not on the first page in Google search. Well, it worked! My quality score went from 4/10 to 7/10. So, I decided to lower my bid. Yes! Google accepted me! Well, then my ad positioning went way down and my CTR began to fall to 2%! So, you guess what happens next? Yup, my quality score goes down and they want more $/click. To make matters worse..... I have not sold one thing on Google! All my sales came from Yahoo! But, Yahoo doesn't have the same payment plan. When Yahoo feels you don't have enough money in your account to sustain 3 days worth of clicks.... They take money right out of your account. At times it has even been a couple times a day. I would rather my ads stop showing than to have money automatically taken out of my account! That's why I tried Google.

Well, I'm done with PPC (pay/click) for now. I just find myself obsessing over it anyway just over analyzing and just being unproductive. I've decided to go back to free methods like y One Week Marketing by PotPieGirl. I don't know why I stopped in the first place. Her advice is incredible and the steps she takes you through is so easy to follow. You are never wondering where I go next. I guess I was just looking for an easy way out? Anyways, it's off to One Week Marketing!

Until Next Post..... God Bless
