Not sure if Google's new policies regarding original content and page rank have anything to do with it, but I finally have a Google Page Rank! Awesome. Not bragging or anything, but I got so excited this morning to see my little number 1! Google Page Rank can really open lines of revenue for you as far as sponsored posts and advertisers are concerned.

For those of you who do not know what Google Page Rank is:

  • a link analysis algorithm
  • measures your importance on the Internet
  • helps you make money
  • determines worth to advertisers and sometimes readers

eHow Closing Writer’s Compensation Program (WCP)

Demand Media Takeover...

I think it is so sad about the Demand Media takeover and now the closing of the eHow Writer’s Compensation Program (WCP). If you are anything like me, eHow was one of the ways that you began making money online. It seems sad to me that a site that had its roots in revenue sharing has now closed that program and essentially shut off the faucet to the writers that helped to make them who they are in the first place. At the same time I am grateful to the company that showed me a great deal about how internet marketing works. I suppose no line of online revenue really lasts forever, but I had gotten used to the income stream...

Demand Media has taken over. You can still make money with them, but the requirements are much more demanding. Most of the original articles are being removed, and new ones are subject to editing and rejection that mean a huge decrease in writer profits because the articles take so much longer to complete. Please comment if you have had positive experiences with Demand Media, or if you like the change.

Getting some inspiration for our green game room

Author esantra Category

Guest post written by Brian Larson

We decided that rather than just give our whole home a green makeover, we would adjust our habits and focus on two of the rooms that we waste the most energy in, our game room and our kitchen. We just use so much energy in both of those rooms, so we thought that would make a huge green difference in our home.

Right now we're working on finding some easy changes to make in our game room. While I was online the other day trying to get some ideas for that, I happened across some energy rates information in New York and read through it. After we looked through it together as a family, we decided to switch over our energy plan as a green step in the right direction. That will help not only in our game room and kitchen, but all over our home!

One of my favorite game room ideas was to switch out some of our gaming equipment with some that's made out of recycled materials. We found a really good dartboard that was made out of recycled cork. It's also just really cool and modern looking too.
