Sunday, October 28, 2007 Sold!

Talkgold the Online Money Making community is officially sold according to the statement released at Talkgold's blog.

As some of you may have heard, has recently been sold. I’m writing this blog entry, not to say goodbye, or mention the changes that will happen at Talkgold, but rather to ensure everyone that Talkgold will not change too much, I will still be around writing blog entries with the other authors, and managing the forum’s administrative duties like usual. The moderator and administrative team will remain, and if it wasn’t for me writing this post I doubt anyone would ever even know the site was changing hands.

Over the 4 and a half years I ran Talkgold I’ve met a lot of interesting people both online and off. Also I met some crazy lunatics as well, but I prefer to only speak about the positives. Everyone has to move on at some point business wise, but like I said I will not be going anywhere in a personal sense. This will free up time, and money for me to continue working on projects I have been working on for years offline, while also giving me the opportunity to help Brad and the gang bring before us what I feel will be a major step in the right direction for the entire online earning community,, which will be integrated within Talkgold itself.

The terms of the deal will not be presented publicly as there really is no need to do so. The Party which the site was sold too will remain hands off from a members point of view, and may or may not decide to post at the forum. Like I said, the most important part of the sale was not, believe it or not, the price it was sold for, but rather the people who it was being sold to. As everyone knows there are a lot of thieves, criminals, liars and cheats out there, and if I were to let talkgold fall into the wrong hands, perhaps someone out to exploit the community, it would have been a nightmare. The future of Talkgold is bright. There will be changes with the addition of TeamEarners, and some othe minor things as well, but the overall way things work will remain just as they have been since January 2003 when we opened the doors.

You may be astonished over the news but rumours have been flying around before and now It's true! What about the price of the forum? For an established forum, I believe It is worth....I dont know maybe 100 million or even half a billion? Just look at their advertising slots..and how much they could generate per month even the top spot 728x90 pixels which costs 9,999 usd per month is always taken.

The staffs will remain, of course they do as It's troublesome to look for new staffs to handle things.

Ways to Improve your Alexa ranking!

This is taken from DoshDosh

1. Install the Alexa toolbar or Firefox’s SearchStatus extension and set your blog as your homepage. This is the most basic step.

2. Put up an Alexa rank widget on your website. I did this a few days ago and receive a fair amount of clicks every day. According to some, each click counts as a visit even if the toolbar is not used by the visitor.

3. Encourage others to use the Alexa toolbar. This includes friends, fellow webmasters as well as site visitors/blog readers. Be sure to link to Alexa’s full explanation of their toolbar and tracking system so your readers know what installing the toolbar or extension entails.

4. Work in an Office or own a company? Get the Alexa toolbar or SS Firefox extension installed on all computers and set your website as the homepage for all browsers. Perhaps it will be useful to note that this may work only when dynamic or different IPs are used.

5. Get friends to review and rate your Alexa website profile. Not entirely sure of its impact on rankings but it might help in some way.

6. Write or Blog about Alexa. Webmaster and bloggers love to hear about ways to increase their Alexa rank. They’ll link to you and send you targeted traffic (i.e. visitors with the toolbar already installed). This gradually has effects on your Alexa ranking.

7. Flaunt your URL in webmaster forums. Webmasters usually have the toolbar installed. You’ll get webmasters to visit your website and offer useful feedback. It’s also a good way to give back to the community if you have useful articles to share with others.

8. Write content that is related to webmasters. This can fall in the category of domaining and SEO, two fields in which most webmasters will have the Alexa toolbar installed. Promote your content on social networking websites and webmaster forums.

9. Use Alexa redirects on your website URL. Try this: . Replace with the URL for your website. Leave this redirected URL in blog comments as well as forum signatures. This redirect will count a unique IP address once a day so clicking it multiple times won’t help. There is no official proof that redirects positively benefit your Alexa Rank, so use with caution.

10. Post in Asian social networking websites or forums. Some webmasters have suggested that East Asian web users are big Alexa toolbar fans, judging by the presence of several Asia-based websites in the Alexa Top 500. I suggest trying this only if you have the time or capacity to do so.

11. Create a webmaster tools section on your website. This is a magnet for webmasters who will often revisit your website to gain access to the tools. Aaron Wall’s webpage on SEOTools is a very good example.

12. Get Dugg or Stumbled. This usually brings massive numbers of visitors to your website and the sheer amount will have a positive impact on your Alexa Rank. Naturally, you’ll need to develop link worthy material.

13. Use PayperClick Campaigns. Buying advertisements on search engines such as Google or Exact Seek will help bring in Traffic. Doubly useful when your ad is highly relevant to webmasters.

14. Create an Alexa category on your blog and use it to include any articles or news about Alexa. This acts as an easily accessible resource for webmasters or casual search visitors while helping you rank in the search engines.

15. Optimize your popular posts. Got a popular post that consistently receives traffic from the search engines? Include a widget/graph at the bottom of the post, link to your Alexa post or use Alexa redirection on your internal URLs.

16. Buy banners and links for traffic from webmaster forums and websites. A prominent and well displayed ad will drive lots of webmaster traffic to your website, which can significantly boost your rank.

17. Hire forum posters to pimp your website. Either buy signatures in webmaster forums or promote specific articles or material in your website on a regular basis. You can easily find posters for hire in Digital Point and other webmaster forums.

18. Pay Cybercafe owners to install the Alexa toolbar and set your website as the homepage for all their computers. This might be difficult to arrange and isn’t really a viable solution for most. I’m keeping this one in because some have suggested that it does work.

19. Use Myspace. This is a little shady so I don’t recommended it unless you’re really interested in artificially inflating your Alexa Rank. Use visually attractive pictures or banners and link them to your redirected Alexa URL. This will be most effective if your website has content that is actually relevant to the MySpace Crowd.

20. Try Alexa auto-surfs. Do they work? Maybe for brand new sites. I think they are mostly suitable for new websites with a very poor Alexa rank. Note that there be problems when you try to use auto surfs alongside contextual ads like Adsense. They aren’t also long term solutions to improving your Alexa Rank so I suggest using with caution.

Good news for Malaysian Paypal Users!

It has been a problem for Malaysians to withdraw their Paypal funds since there has been no withdrawal option besides selling them to money exchangers.

From now onwards, Malaysian users can withdraw to their debit and credit cards(haven't tried it though)but only cards with VISA LOGO has the access to that and mastercard has yet to be accepted but I believe It wouldn't be too far from now on. A total of 26 countries were added to that functionality.

Each withdrawal fee costs $5 usd and the minimum withdrawal amount if $10 USD. Don't bother to withdraw $10 USD LOL because the fee you have to bear with is already 50% of it :P.

The maximum withdrawal is 500 USD and processing time takes about 5 - 7 business days.

Here's a link where u can check if there's any changes on PayPal for your country.

Blogrush Update!

Email update from Blogrush:

TO: All BlogRush Members

FROM: John Reese, Founder of BlogRush

ARE YOU READY? Because *everything* is about to change. Forget everything else up until now


BlogRush CANT EXIST if were not sending you a lot of ongoing, targeted traffic. We fully recognize this and thats why this is our ONLY FOCUS.

The BlogRush team has been hard at work making major improvements for you and we wont rest until BlogRush is running 100% smoothly and sending you tons of targeted traffic! This is OUR MISSION. Please know that our entire team is working around-the-clock to make improvements and fix any problems AS FAST AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE.

(We sincerely appreciate your patience.)

Weve encountered some problems since our historic launch just over a week ago, and we fully recognize that weve made some real goofs with the system for our Public Beta release

For example, our data center provider (one of the largest in the world) had a short, temporary outage (they had to replace a network switch) two days after our launch. We had no control over this outage but want to SINCERELY APOLOGIZE to those that saw this message on their blogs (where the widget should have been):

We are currently experiencing some technical issues and the site will be back online shortly. Please come back in a few minutes.

We were completely *EMBARRASSED* when we realized this happened. That simple message was part of our application code and was meant to appear only on *OUR* WEB SITE PAGES if we ever experienced an outage. This was accidentally marked to be a global error message for ANY outage including if our widget ever had a problem loading. This was a major GOOF and were willing to admit it. Our code was planned so that in the case of a problem with our widget, NOTHING WOULD LOAD in its place. So a visitor to your blog doesnt see an error or anything wrong should the widget ever have any technical issues.

This was quickly corrected and is now working properly. Should the widget ever have any problem loading in the future, your blog will be served a transparent space (which will show whatever background your blog design has) and your blog readers wont really notice anything.

Again, our sincere apologies for our major goof. It was quite embarrassing.


We also realize that we completely underestimated the number of unethical people that would sign up and proceed to CHEAT and try to game the BlogRush system. These cheaters ruined the click-rates of many of our members (and burned through a lot of their credits using automated exploit methods) and hurt BlogRushs ability to send maximum traffic to our honest members blogs.


In the next several days to come, were going to be rolling out MAJOR changes to BlogRush. BIG changes. And these changes (again) have just ONE primary purpose to drive more ongoing, targeted traffic to your blog.

Weve listened to your valued feedback and constructive criticism and we have been working in TURBO MODE to make the changes you want ASAP



Our team is going to be manually reviewing every single new blog that registers to participate in the BlogRush Network.

Well be applying some quality guidelines and criteria to our decision-making process. (Well be publishing these guidelines very soon.) If a blog does not meet our guidelines and criteria, THEY WILL BE REJECTED from the network and not allowed to join i.e. they wont be able to serve our widget, refer other users, or have their blog posts distributed across our network. They will have no access to any BlogRush services.

Our members, like YOU, made it LOUD AND CLEAR to us BlogRush needs to only have members that have quality blog content not blogs filled primarily with ads and other spammy looking JUNK.

The only accurate way were going to keep these junk blogs out of our network is to REVIEW EVERY SINGLE ONE BY HAND. And were willing to do it to protect the integrity of our network. I dont care what it costs us to hire more people (if we need them) to review 100% of any blog trying to join our network. We will be reviewing ALL OF THEM from here on out.

* We realize that several non-English language blogs blatantly ignored our ENGLISH BLOGS ONLY warning on our Registration page. Rest assured, though, theyll all be PURGED from the network when we do our QUALITY CONTROL AUDIT over the next several days (youll read about it in a moment).

As Ive said several times before, BlogRush isnt some passing fad or short-term service. Were dedicated to building an incredibly valuable resources for bloggers FOR MANY YEARS TO COME.

Well also be doing a QUALITY CONTROL AUDIT of all of our existing member blogs. Well be reviewing every single blog thats currently in our network (or that registers before the Manual Review Process becomes active.) And well be completely *REMOVING* any blogs in our network that dont meet our quality guidelines and criteria.

As you can probably tell by now, were not messing around. We have put a lot of hard work into the development of this service and we will continue to bust our butts to make it one of the best Internet services in the world. COUNT ON IT.

Were also deploying several new Anti-Cheat measures to SHUTDOWN AND WIPEOUT the cheaters and unethical users that have abused our network. Sorry, crooks, but THE FREE RIDE IS OVER.

Well be dedicating an entire department to stay on top of any abusive behavior in our network. We believe that our new measures are going to instantly eliminate most, if not all, of our system abuse. Its going to take us a few more days to roll-out all of these measures (and to complete our entire QUALITY CONTROL AUDIT) but rest assured, BlogRush is about to go through a major TRANSFORMATION.

And a quick word to any cheats that might be reading this letter its very possible that you may come up with something extremely creative that temporarily gets by us, but you should know something ITS NOT GOING TO BE WORTH YOUR TIME. And Im not just talking about the tiny amount of traffic that youll receive before we shut you off.

You see, we have other plans in the works

If you attempt to cheat or abuse our network in anyway, shape, or form, we will not hesitate to come after you. Our company is well funded and has plenty of resources. And we WILL use them to punish you to the fullest extent of the law (and civil court process). Oh, you think you can just hide behind some anonymous proxy IPs? Sorry, its not that easy. ANY reason youd have to try and cheat the BlogRush network for traffic and any attempt you make to monetize that traffic will lead directly to your front door whether its AdSense, any affiliate program in the world, any online pharmacy, porn site, casino ANYTHING. We will follow the trail and it WILL eventually lead to you.

Our hard-working company provides the income for MANY families. As the CEO of our company, I take this very seriously. I HAVE TO. People that attempt to abuse or cheat BlogRush are affecting the livelihood of all my employees and their families. And I will do everything in my power to protect them its MY DUTY.

So for all you cheaters that joined BlogRush and had your fun trying to siphon off some traffic, hopefully it was fun. And Ill go ahead and make this statement right now IF you were one of the people that has been cheating our network Im going to give you ONE opportunity quit now and well pretend it never happened. I think thats more than fair.

BUT if you continue after this point, all bets are off. We WILL eventually discover what youre doing, where youre trying to send traffic, and we will prosecute you. I GUARANTEE IT. Sorry, but WE HAVE NO CHOICE NOW.

* If youre one of our valued, HONEST users, Im very sorry you even have to read stuff like that. I know its a waste of your time. Unfortunately, there are unethical people in this world that attempt to abuse and take advantage of others.




You asked for it, and youre getting it!

Were going to be greatly expanding our directory of categories to increase the relevancy of post links appearing in the widget on your blog this will also increase click-rates (and traffic) for all members.

* Stay tuned over the next several days for more news about the addition of new categories.



The current Dashboard stats are being under-reported for all users right now. This is the reason that users show discrepancies when looking at Google Analytics data (or other stats packages). Were currently sending more traffic to our users than were reporting in the Dashboard because we are giving all users bonus credits everyday. Well soon be reporting all bonus credit activity so all the numbers will be accurate.

SPECIAL NOTE TO ALL LOW-TRAFFIC MEMBERS: In the near future well be giving our low-traffic members (those that need more traffic the most) the BULK of our bonus credit allocations. Youll get a ton more bonus credits than high-traffic members because you really need it. Its only FAIR!

* Also we apologize to anyone that has seen a negative credit balance for their account. This is a minor bug that were taking care of. It doesnt mean anything and you can just ignore it for now. We apologize for any confusion.


A few of our users have noticed that theyre building up credits faster than the system is using them. This will eventually balance itself out as the network continues to adjust to the growth levels and traffic patterns of each category because our network provides syndication distribution based on daily average cycles and then adjusts moving into the future; so its able to accurately predict how fast to use a certain users credits, etc. as compared to just using them all as fast as possible.



You can go login to your account, click the Settings tab and then select Flavors.

You can choose from (13) different widget colors. You no longer have to only use our original black widget design that many users thought was ugly! (Hey, just dont let our lead designer hear that he thought his black design was really cool.)

Now you can select a color that more closely matches the look of your blog. Our users have been asking for this since we launched our Public Beta, and weve taken action to offer these new options.

* We have future plans for further widget customization but were working on one stage of improvement at a time! Please bare with us. Were fully aware of the request for a more narrow widget as our current one doesnt fit on some blogs. Were trying to produce a solution and should have some news soon.


You dont have to copy and paste new code to your blog. Just go to that Flavors section for your account, select the flavor you want, then hit the APPLY FLAVOR button. Thats it! Reload your blog in another browser window and take a look.

And if you want to see what a different flavor might look like, just pick another one, hit the APPLY FLAVOR button and reload your blog. PRESTO!



Under the Settings tab youll also find a new option called, My Post Control. Heres what this awesome new feature does

You can create POST FILTERS for your blog posts

For example, you can add a keyword or phrase and create a new post filter. If you ever create a post on your blog (while you have that filter active and you can add/delete them at anytime) that contains one of those keywords in the TITLE of your blog post, that post

WILL *NOT* BE SHOWN ACROSS THE NETWORK. And you wont use any of your syndication credits!

All bloggers post off-topic stuff from time to time, or short posts that dont have a ton of great content. Well, now you can easily keep any of those types of posts from using your valuable syndication credits and from being shown across the network!

This is GREAT for you because now you can control exactly which posts of yours will be syndicated. This can help you maximize your CLICK-RATES and, ultimately, the traffic you receive from the BlogRush network. AND it can help retain NEW READERS for your blog (your ultimate goal that can grow your blogs traffic on a day-to-day basis.)

Heres Why

By selecting which posts get syndicated (by simply adding filters right BEFORE you publish a post on your blog that you dont want to be used; or having setup one well in advance) you can make sure that youre only syndicating your BEST POSTS. The ones with top-quality content. Your posts that a new visitor to your blog will enjoy and be much more likely to make a YES! decision to become a regular reader for you!


This is only the very beginning for BlogRush. We have so much great stuff in store for you! As I said at the beginning of this letter we will continue to work VERY HARD to make improvements and add-ons with ONE PRIMARY FOCUS

To drive more ongoing targeted traffic to your blog.

I want to personally THANK YOU on behalf of our entire company for your interest in BlogRush. Weve received a lot of criticism from many bloggers on the Internet, and well be the first to admit were not perfect and a lot of it was WELL-DESERVED.

But please know, were busy working around the clock FOR YOU. You have our word on it.

Now go login to your account and try out some of the new Flavors for your blog! And also start setting up some Post Control Filters so you can start maximizing your content syndication.

Ill be in touch when I have more news to share. Thanks for reading this long letter. I had a lot to tell you about.

Best Regards,

John Reese, Founder of BlogRush

Blogrush...a free source of traffic?

Blogrush requires you to install their widget which show someone else's blog/website entry...

As the picture above, there are topics are shown in the widget whereby when your blog receives a page view,you gain a free credit and with the free credit, your blog post will then show up to another blogrush member related to your category.

Remember to choose the category relevant to u because your ads will only be displayed on the same category website/blog :)

I won't tell much about it yet...but no harm trying a free product rite?
