This is epic, I can’t embed it though since it’s from College Humor :/

Didn’t get as much work done today…just put up 15 of my outsourced posts and spoke to some of my outsourcers…going to look into hiring more people for re-writes to get things moving faster money-wise..

Earnings For Today:

  • CB = $0
  • Adsense = $56.94

    Mike,
    would it be worth changing your html sites to wordpress?
    I am thinking of doing this, as its easy to customise WP and their are lots of plugins, google seems to like WP also..your CB sites are WP, so why not your adsense sites??

    WordPress versus “HTML Sites” has no bearing on a site’s success. There is no advantage to having WP instead of a well designed HTML template, and static sites can be a lot quicker to churn out.

    At Mike’s level – having 300 sites or so where you have to not only update the themes (WP 3.0 just rolled out), but you have to go back and update all the plugins…nightmarish.

    surely there is a system out there that deals with plugin & wp updates? my number of WP sites is steadily growing and i’m not looking forward to future updates! ;->

    @Matt

    In addition to what Ken and James said, I prefer my html sites as with my WordPress sites I’ve had to deal with annoyances like disabling plugins as my hosting company told me my sites were hogging too many system resources, and dealing with people hacking into my blogs.

    HTML sites also can’t be hacked like wordpress sites, or so I am told.

    I’m working on my first site that isn’t hosted by blogger right now and making this wordpress blog look the way I want to is nightmarish. Does anyone know a good way to make your own theme(maybe even modify themes)? Or where do you go looking for themes?

    Or do you know of a theme that is wide, has a thin header, has the navigation bar on the left, and is primarily white and dark purple?(a lot to ask I know haha).

    @Josh that isn’t too hard, and i’m no css guy. You can basically change everything in a wordpress template using the firefly plugin for Firefox. It basically show’s you what goes where. If you have header you made that is 401px wide, but the template css says 301px in firefly, you simply change that line to 401 save and boom. Colors the same way. Try it with a simple one like the default template. WordPress is annoying as hell, sadly I depend on it for my EBay sites.

    The plugin is actually called fireBUG, so very useful for any CSS hackery

    Haha, I was starting to wonder….

    Josh –

    You can find an easy theme to modify called “flexibility” – it upgrades to a pretty cool theme altogether, “flexsqueeze,” but flexibility is easy to use itself.

    A premium theme to consider (cheap, all told) is Socrates by Joel Comm, though right now I’m getting by with ClickBump’s 12-pack of themes just fine, along w/flexibility.

    The Kubrick theme (standard) makes a great site, too, especially if you have Firebug and can modify it by taking out the sidebar and using it for a one-page sales or squeeze page. Not sure what you’re using it for, but these are some preliminary thoughts.

    One last thought: you can always use go to the admin panel and go to Appearance ==> Themes ==> and I think it’s called “get new themes” or “browse themes” or what not…just look for “SEO” or something like that and you’ll find a lot of themes. (Or look for whatever!)

    That’s where you can find a plethora of themes to use and modify. You can always change themes mid-swing, too. If you want to see a theme before uploading or installing it, you can try the “Theme Test Drive” plugin (free), upload a theme and test it out. Only the admin can see it, so you can change your theme a hundred times before picking one you like.

    To make my life easier, I always go for the “widgetized” themes, you can mess with the widgets easily by dragging and dropping…

    Man. I actually just stopped by here to check Mike’s stats.

    Hey Mike! Nicer stats, hopefully those new pages will kick in and make your Adsense jump a notch or three.

    @James YO BUD. So you use clickbump great. Got a question. I’m assuming for your MNS you make 5 page kw or at least more then 1 page kw right? So are you using the same image for all your inner pages? Because i figure when u want to add a keyword you just add a new post right? But then the image on the homepage relays to all the inner pages. Do you think that’s fine?

  13. June 22nd, 2010 at 23:01 | #13

    @Jon
    It all depends on what you mean by “do I think that’s fine,” for an XFactor type site – all my sites are that way, and none of them seem to be affected by Mayday and all that…So if it’s ranking you’re asking about, it’s not a biggie.

    Actually, I have some images on my site, they’re linked to affiliate products. So that is a difference on my sites, actually.

    If you want to go XFactor style, that system works fine the way it is, but I wanted some sales coming in. To that end, I made money by focusing on one particular product and using pics from the sales page, did a review, made sure the All in One SEO was meta-tagged with certain KW’s relating to the product line (and UAW runs with the product as anchor text to the inner page where my sales page/review is)…voila.

    I added the images using the normal WP editor, the main images at the top are the same throughout the site. Hope that was clear and answered your question, Jon.

    man. I think I used the word “actually” one too many times. actually.

    Ya, I think it will kick in once the backlinking get rolling on a large scale…
