What Happened to Click for Nick?

February 10th, 2011

I haven’t updated this blog in over 1 year, for good reason.  Click for Nick started out as a project to learn more about making money online, to share the experience.  However in the last year I’ve gone on to bigger and better things.  I started out making a lowly $500 a month. Now I make $12,000 a month using adsense and affiliate marketing.

I have a range of about 30 blogs, some full automated generating up to $30 a day, others written by employees which I also consider to be fully automated. Basically I realized that its not hard to take yourself out of having to do any work at all. Find a successful blog topic, hire a writer, then move on to the next topic.

Now most of my time is spent on research, research, and more research.  Once I’ve discovered a successful niche, I’ll move on to a new topic. This was the best way for me to grow my income into the $400 a day it is now.

Mahalo, The Ultimate Seo Mashup Setup?

February 5th, 2010

One site I’ve been paying more attention to lately is Mahalo which seems to be the ultimate SEO machine. Mahalo does well as a mashup that I had to wonder if having a mashup would be the best layout for a blog? Does pulling up related Google searches, Google images, videos, etc help give your blog better rankings? Mahalo seems to think so, taking their posts to the extreme, having automatic content automatically posted from across the web.

In fact if you look at Mahalo’s feed, they are having topics to get indexed by google that have no original content. They just mashup the information using scripts that automatically grab related content. Did they find a loophole that lets them get indexed very well with stealing content in a legitimate way? They only take the amount of description that Google has and in fact the only have thumbnails of the images. No legal issues have been raised yet that I know of. So maybe Mahalo really does have one of the best seo tools?

Review of Vibrant Media, Total ECPM

February 3rd, 2010

Vibrant Media is one new ad agency I’ve started using so I thought a review was necessary. Vibrant media offers in text advertising for websites that get 500k users. Does the ECPM live up to the hype? Currently their ecpm is good, and it does pay pretty good per ad click. However, most of their ads only show up in the USA and Canada so you’ll need to use another ad agency for foreign traffic.

Currently I’ve been using a combination of Vibrant Media and Infolinks to get the most out of my text links. So far the combination has paid off, giving me a higher total earnings than using either ad company alone.

If your website does qualify for their stringent requirements, leave me a comment below and I can personally recommend you too their ad agency.

Infolinks Increasing ECPM Lately?

January 31st, 2010

It looks like infolinks has once again increased its ECPM, making it a valuable service to run once again. I emailed infolinks customer support which wrote that they aren’t experience a decrease in advertisers, and that in fact I should see an increase in revenue. So far, I have seen an increase in ecpm, which looks like a good sign.

Infolinks still seems to pay higher than kontera.
