Day 312 – Late Update

March 13th, 2010

I can’t embed this, but you’ll want to check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyFHKVql7Ng

Thought I’d continue along with the daily updates for the time being…I spent the last 2 days trying to get my site fully moved, but will be getting back to building my business now that it’s out of the way..

I noticed that since I did those 20 Ezine Article submissions the other day, my income the last 2 days has been hovering around $110 as opposed to $100 so looks like that helped.

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $26.38
  • Hops = 122
  • Adsense = $114.34
  • UAW = $26.80 (tnx :>)
  • Total = $167.52

    Yo Mike!

    Your Ezine articles you submitted the other day already got accepted and indexed that quick? That’s impressive!

    BTW you’re welcome =] (UAW) look out for a BMD too =P

  2. March 13th, 2010 at 20:16 | #2

    It happens when you’re platinum in EZA – I get accepted same day sometimes, depends on their work load. Which goes to show that good writing/content really is key.

    @ MikeMan –

    Wow. Darn video. Made me cry. Really.

    The thing is, India reminds me so much of my upbringing in the Philippines – we lived on the Air Base, mind you, but visiting my cousins, mom’s family, etc – very much like India.

    I have this against you, though – you should have put a “grab Kleenex” warning on the link. not fair.

    BTW, recently on my comment about mobile devices and increasing bottom line, this from the Xsite Pro2 site (thru ur aff link) –

    With just a few clicks of your mouse, you can have a second version of your site that is specially designed for people using mobile browsers on their phone.

    No matter how much you are willing to pay – you wonโ€™t find a tool that makes publishing existing sites in a mobile format so incredible easy – it simply doesnโ€™t exist.

    This incredible feature is unique to XSitePro 2 and is something that can give you the edge when it comes to succeeding with your web sites.

    I imagine with as many sites as you and others have, using the Xsite Pro2 software just made an income jump that much easier! Still saving up for it. Cannot wait!

    Have you done the big UAW run you had planned?

    On a side-note, you can’t quit mate, you’re my other coffee in the morning ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Don’t go, Mike.
    You’re our hero.
    We love you.

    Hello Mike,
    I may have missed it… but were those 20 ezine submissions for one site or several and how many sites were they spread out for?

    Mike I’ve just come across your site just by coincidence and can’t simply stop reading your posts (3am over here). Thanks a lot for all this valuable content.

    Hey Mikeman!

    I read that you are using Reseller account from Hostgators for your site. Does the Reseller account provide a unique IP address for each site you make?

    I’m currently under the Shared Hosting (Hatchling) with Hostgator, is it best to switch over to a Reseller account?

    Ya, my Ezines get accepted within 24 hours usually, I have a Platinum acct..

    And thanks man :>

    @JamestheJust on Elance

    haha, ya, was a nice story for sure..

    and never knew that about the mobile phones..but that’s not something I’m going to bother with.


    No, not yet, I’ll start submitting UAW articles probably tomorrow though.

    and lol at my site being coffee


    haha, well thanks Bill


    Each Ezine backlinks 2 sites, so 40 sites in total.


    *pats your head*


    Nice… Glad you’re enjoying it :>


    I’ve never checked how many IP’s you get, but I think it’s around 5..someone else might know the exact #.

    Having a reseller account is good if you’re planning on building up an empire of sites..it’s a lot easier to manage 300 websites through 1 reseller account for instance..even 100 sites.

    So if you’re serious about making a living out of this, ya, you should get a reseller account now and start off on the right foot to begin with.

    Thanks for the reply Mike!

    I’ll have to see the benefits of both type of account, because currently my Shared account (hatchling) I’m able to add-on unlimited about of sites but they are all on one IP.

    Need to figure out how a Reseller account differ…and YES my plan is make a living out of this, if you can do it, I probably got a chance too =]

  13. March 14th, 2010 at 08:20 | #13

    Mikeman –

    I’m also unclear – along with DC here – of the benefits to a reseller account vs. an “add-on” domain or sub-domain situation. Can you elaborate?

    @JamestheJust on Elance

    All the cool people and gurus are getting them…

    it’s easier to manage your sites, easier to sell them if you chose to do that..

    Also if you’re planning on building 100+ sites, despite them saying you have infinite space/bandwidth on shared, it really isn’t and there are stories out there of ppl with too many sites on 1 shared host and them getting into issues with the hosting company because they’re hogging too many resources..

    For all that, just better to get a reseller. Listen to me, and you’ll be happy when you have 100+ sites..don’t listen to me and you’ll be kicking yourself in your own butt down the road.

    im still unclear what exactly a reseller account is…i think i have a reseller account? i go thru seohosting[dot]com which uses WHM accelerated and you can add IPs to your account, i got them down to $5 an IP address and I have 20 of them. this gives me huge flexibility as i can assign domains to 20 different IPs. so really its like having 20 different hosting accounts (cpanels) but can all be managed through one panel. when i call to add more IPs they auto assume i have a reseller account and i have to tell them i have seo hosting account for them to find my info…what exactly does a reseller account do?

    To all:
    and yeah Mikeman is right on about upgrading your hosting. i used to use godaddy shared hosting account…you know the cheap one, its like $6 a month or something, in any case, your sites are being shared among thousands of other people, so if someone is creating a “bad neighbourhood” and YOU are on that same IP then there is a good chance you can be affected as well. i dont have anything to confirm this but ive heard horror stories. and if your serious about IM then a good hosting plan is very critical to your success. just my personal experience.

    @Mike Yea I’ve experienced that with hostgator a few weeks ago on my shared hosting account, I was hosting WPMU site and apparently the database got too big so my cpanel database interface got disabled (I don’t know if it was intentional or not but I couldn’t use the interface). Anyway I just moved the site to a different plan it all got sorted out. I’m not saying any of these against hostgotor or anything as i swear by their service but come on how much do we expect to put on a hosting account for only a couple bucks a month.

    Mike, one other thing (And I’m sure you’ve answered this in some of your posts yet I couldn’t find it). And again I apologize if it’s something that you’ve answered a million times before but what template are you using for your site. Is it something home made. I think you switched to HTML sites from wordpress sites right? Correct me if I am wrong.

    And again keep it up man and I wish you well for more success and fortune ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mike, just to clarify regarding the Reseller account, every time you add a new site/domain it gets it’s own cPanel?

    With Hostgator you are allowed 250,000 inodes or files per cpanel. Every file (a webpage, image, email, php file, directory, etc.) counts towards your limit. With a reseller account all your sites will have their own c-panel so you probably won’t have to worry about going over the limit. http://support.hostgator.com/articles/pre-sales-questions/inode-usage-limits

    With Bluehost it’s 50,000 inodes (files) per cpanel, go over that number and they will threaten to suspend your account and will stop making backups of your sites.

  22. March 14th, 2010 at 18:56 | #22

    Thank you, that makes it clear. (along with what MikeMan said) Much appreciated.

    @Kasey Langton

    With a Reseller account you don’t have add-on domains…

    You create each new domain via WHM and access it through it’s own seperate CPanel. Actually, you can access all the sites through the one main domain too, you can just use a drop down list to see all the sites and by selecting one, you will enter that site’s cpanel.

    I don’t know about SEOHosting, but if you have add-on domains, then it’s not a reseller account.


    Thanks man.. For my adsense sites I’m using the black/green template you find talked about in XFactor’s book..I created a variation of it in XSite Pro 2.


    Yup, every site get’s it’s own CPanel which you can access via the master site by a drop down menu.

    You go into WHM, go to create a new account, type in the domain name, username, password, select a package which allots bandwidth/diskspace restrictions, then create…

    After that, login to the Cpanel, setup the email..

    @ Mikeman,
    thats pretty cool actually, but your still on the same IP right, the sites just are not connected to each other via “add on”…seo hosting is a lil different. each IP gets its own cpanel and you add on domains so its better to have more IPs to keep each niche seperate. i guess they both have their advantages it seems like.

  25. March 15th, 2010 at 21:18 | #25

    I was just checking out Hostgator’s options and I can’t see how many IPs are included in a reseller account. I am assuming it is just one IP (your own, not shared outside your account), so I don’t see the advantage other than if you were flipping domains. I must be missing something.

    SeoHosting looks better as you can have separate IPs. You may still need to put multiple domains on one IP, but at least there is some variety.

  26. Kasey Langton
    March 15th, 2010 at 23:18 | #26

    yes it depends on your preferences. i personally like seohosting because of multiple IPs but you “add-on” domains to those IP’s but its nice because you can keep your sites diverse and similar sites on different IPs. and with a reseller account, you have your own cpanel per site so there is no “adding on” but your still on the same IP…so i dont know which is better to be honest, i guess its your personal preference

  27. Mikeman
    March 15th, 2010 at 23:19 | #27


    OK, I went through the trouble (just for you Carrie) of finding out how many IP’s are on my reseller.. I went through several pages of domains on 2 of my reseller accounts and counted 6 different IP’s on each, however out of that there were 3 differen’t class C IP’s.

    AA.BB.CC.XX (Different class C IP’s are where the numbers following the 2nd decimal are different). & = same class C IP & = different class C IP

    I can’t comment on the SEO Hosting plans as I don’t use them..but comparing prices, $25/month gets 3 class C IP’s with a reseller while $35/month gets 5 class C IP’s with SEO Hosting(which is owned by Hostgator BTW).

  28. March 16th, 2010 at 00:52 | #28

    Dude. analyst. shouldn’t you be putting up another sniper?


    Seriously appreciate you, Mike, you always make the time.
