    Free website content: Wikiquote
       July 12th, 2006

    I have recently written about public domain resources as a way to get free and legal content to your website (but remember of duplicate content issues).

    In this post I would like to talk of one more resource that might be helpful with quality content for your website – Wikiquote It is a part of but the latter deserves a separate talk as it is a great source of good information and a place where you should try to get a link from (but not by spamming it – anyway it will be removed).

    What is Wikiquote? Wikiquote is a selection of quotes from famous people. There are a few language versions of Wikiquote. English version at the moment counts over 7,500 pages.

    Four basic Wikiquote principles – accurate and comprehensive collection of notable quotations.

    You can edit Wikiquote by adding/ modifying the entries, but at this time we are more interested in using it as a source of content for our own websites. You can browse quotations by categories or by search. Once you found a few quotations that might be a good fit for your website – you just copy/ paste them and your web pages get some extra charm.

    Summary: quotations are a good way to attract readers’ attention. You just need to find the ones that are a perfect fit for your website and place them prominently.

    You can also use quotations in a few different ways. For example, use a quotation in your forum signature. It is a sort of magnet – people tend to read it and check the website of that person. Wikiquote offers a great selection and covers multiple areas.

    Forums as a web site backbone
       July 10th, 2006

    You may not know much of the forum functioning principles if you run a website with no forum, but it is a fact that websites that support a forum are less dependent on search engine changes and traffic – they help your website to function independently to some extent. Many affiliate marketers see online communities as the sole way to keep your website running smoothly and profitably in the future – with every Google update the artificial manipulations (SEO) with the top search engine get harder and harder, I would put it – next to impossible.

    So, the above introductory paragraph sounds convincing and you decide to add a forum to your website. I will not discuss popular forum software (vBulletin and phpBB (free) are most popular) and mods (forum additions and plug-ins) that make your forum more advanced and attractive to the users – it is a topic for a separate talk.

    I would like to focus on the basics – what you should do correct to attract and keep the users on your forum. I know one excellent place for forum owners and administrators – The Admin Zone – where they professionally discuss all issues related to forums – starting and running, monetization and traffic, software and staff.

    The one thing I have found particularly useful for myself is their community review algorithm. You have two ways to go – you can register with the forum and ask professional forum reviewers to critique your new forum (it is a free service). Or you can do the review on your own, but using their process. It helps you to spot most weak points in your young community. And it is of great value if you are new to forums operation.

    OK, here is a list of things you should pay attention to while running your forum. Your target is to make it look professional and attract as many members as possible:


    Guest’s Outlook: your community aims become clear within a few moments a new visitor arrived to your forum.

    Logos and Banners: use this for branding.

    Quantity of Forums: always start small and add new forums as you grow.

    Advertisements: blend, try not to annoy your visitors. The best solution is to drop any adv while you actively recruit first few hundreds of members.

    Color scheme: need to show your web designer taste.

    Themes and Styles: there are a lot of free skins in the Internet – find 10-15 minutes to select the one that matches your general website design.

    Rules, FAQ, and Privacy Policy: it is best to design your own (not the ones that come with forum software package.

    Forum Staff/Contact Points: who does what here?

    Points of Registration: make it as easy as possible. In the future when you will be faced with forum spammers you will introduce a few more extra steps to register.

    Page and Image Sizes: keep it under control.

    Favicon, Buttons, and Other Graphics: custom favicon and graphics are a plus for any forum.


    Sense of Community: it is your target to create the group of regular members who will make the place worthy browsing.

    Post count and Quality: many web browsers check this before they register – it is a sign if the community is active. Post actively yourself to increase the numbers.

    Participation Overview: one thread posts mean no discussions most forums are created for the purpose to discuss and argue.

    Quantity and Activity of Staff: be helpful and online as much as you can – later the forum will get moderators that will take over this task.

    Contests, Games, and Diversions: advisable

    Overall Impressions

    Summary of Recommended Changes

    Summary: the above steps will help you to avoid general pitfalls typical of new forum owners. Unfortunately, it does not guarantee success of your community – nowadays it takes much more. You need top website and forum content and discussions, you need to attract and keep great knowledgeable members, you need ideas to innovate all the time, you need keep with the development of your industry, you need… many other things. But the above list is a good starting point.

    Extra income stream for bloggers… and one way link source
       July 5th, 2006

    Extra income stream for bloggers... and one way link sourceNew (a couple of months old) and actively advertised service aimed to help bloggers to earn some extra cash and marketers to promote their products and services via blogs.

    Well as a blogger, I am interested how it works for publishers. I should meet some requirements: Tax ID or EIN, must be 18 or older, write in English, run at least a 3 month old blog, unique content.

    Once you create an account you can browse their marketplace: blogging opportunities. Select topics you like, make a post in accordance with the guidelines, get approved and get paid by PayPal. Weaknesses as I see them: you can write posts that will not be approved and you will not get paid for your work. Even every second disapproved post makes your time efforts double. I do not have any experience of working with this service, but the first thing I would ask the support: what is the percent of disapproved posts?

    I have browsed their blogging opportunities: at the moment there are 21 topics, money paid – $5-10.00 per post.

    On the other hand, the service is a good way for website owners and bloggers to get some traffic and a one way link for $5-10.00. So, this service is valuable to me as an advertiser as well. I wish I could set certain requirements to a posting blog from SEO point (PR, static URL, permanent link, anchor text, link surrounding text, etc.)

    The service has recently introduced international support for advertisers – looking for the ways to attract more publishers and make their blogging opportunities pool larger.

    Summary: It is too early to say if this service will attract enough advertisers to make the project a success. No doubt it will attract crowds of bloggers (or have it already attracted?). But the service provides a cheap way to advertise your website: get some traffic, visibility and one way link for 10.00 dollars. Sounds like a bargain. This fact should drive thousands of website owners to become advertisers. And make the project a hit? Definitely worth trying.
