PubCon is a major annual digital marketing conference held in Las Vegas each year. And this year, a significant announcement came during the keynote speech given by Gary Illyes of Google (think of him as the new Matt Cutts).
That announcement is that Google are going to divide their search engine index between mobile and desktop sites within a few months…and the Primary Index will be the Mobile one, not Desktop. That means the Desktop index won’t be as fresh as the Mobile one.
Google will still have a desktop index, it just won’t be as fresh as the mobile index. #pubcon

I’ve been thinking about all the affiliate and internet marketing courses I’ve bought and learned from over the years. And how many just languish on my digital shelves now and how many I actually used and still use.
Many had short lifetimes because they exploited a loophole or trick to achieve their aim and, once that was plugged, whatever the course taught didn’t work any more.
Then there’s the simple reality that the internet is an incredibly dynamic entity.
Google changes the rules on a what – daily, weekly, monthly basis? We get to hear about the big changes like Panda and Penguin algorithm updates but the knock-on effect of these changes …
UPDATE: Flipping Paradise and Flipping Maverick Are No Longer Available
My current recommended domain flipping courses are DomainFlipping and Flipp Me.
Most of my income is derived from revenue from my websites. That’s a mix of Adsense and other passive income streams like Infolinks, Chitika, Viglink, Skimlinks and some others, along with sales of products through the sites. I also sell my own software products for additional income.
Something I’ve come across several times over the years is the idea of selling on websites ot other people (domain/website flipping). Websites are simply virtual real estate and, like their physical counterparts, have value and that means someone else might …
Information is power, right? Well, in this day and age some information feels like it is powerful, but most feels totally irrelevant. But if you use WordPress, there are ways to collect valuable information related to your visitors. Everything from their IP address to the search terms that brought them to your site. Now, if you have only had minimal experience with a blog or website, you may be saying “So what?”. Believe it or not, this information when properly used, can give you a distinctive edge and help guide your content creation by focusing on who your viewers are and what they want…or what they are actually looking for.
It’s now been 6 weeks since Andrew Hansen launched his Forever Affiliate affiliate marketing blueprint, so I thought it was time to provide a progress report on how I’ve been doing with it.
Andrew Hansen’s Forever Affiliate Course Members Area
The first couple of weeks I spent just going through the course materials, familiarizing myself with Hansen’s approach to product research, site structure and layout, competition analysis and promotional techniques. There are quite a few videos in the course (about 60) so it takes time to go through them.
If you’ve been reading my recent posts you’ll know that I was humming and hawing about whether to sign up …
I got a few email queries about what I thought of Andrew Hansen’s new Forever Affiliate course. As I mentioned in my previous post, I didn’t know anything about it apart from the fact that he’d just released a new course.
The course I consistently rely on is Mike Johnson’s Profit Marketer as it’s detailed, gets updated constantly and provides members with pre-configured blogs, top-notch plugins and themes and great support (there’s more on it here). I still dip back into the Bring The Fresh course as it takes a different approach to building blogs (it too is a comprehensive course) but Profit Marketer fits my needs better. …
