Update: Andrew Flint is the winner. Prize has been emailed. Enjoy! 🙂
I received a 1.5 EUR coupon for G2A. I’m not into gaming, I don’t need it, so I’m giving it away. Comment here if you’re interested. If there are more participants, I will use random.org to pick the winner.
I will announce the winner and deliver the code by email on Sunday, March 12, at 10:30pm GMT+2.
Background: I’m currently involved in a fairly large project about removing spammy links to some domains. Those links were created by some individuals who hacked thousands of websites (!) across the Internet and injected pages with links to a few websites that have the top ranks in an extremely popular niche, for topnotch keywords. Over the last month I contacted 2k+ of these websites and asked them to remove the links. Some of them did, most of them didn’t bother.
The reason why I’m writing this article is that I stumbled into this post from Matthew Woodward. His tutorial is full of insightful tips, and definitely recommended for anyone who is going through hell and back in an attempt to clear this kind of mess. I have some recommendations regarding how to contact webmasters.
It’s so nice when you run into a community of like-minded people. I just stumbled across TBN, and must say it was quite a nice surprise. The community is built around developing bots and automating marketing tasks. I found some nice gems in the Freebies section. TBN is definitely worth checking out.
If you’re starting out to sell on Fiverr, you’re likely to have a hard time getting your first customers. Given the plethora of scammers and clueless kids, seasoned buyers are likely to go with established providers. After all, this is why Fiverr introduced the Level 2 sellers badge.
However, there’s a (blackhat) workaround. You can exchange ratings with fellow marketers who, just like you, are having a hard time getting their first sales. Granted, it costs you $2.00 per rating, but this investment can turn into a goldmine over the long run.
This is a quick tool to check for the occurrence of multiple keywords on multiple websites. No installation needed – just upload the PHP file on your webhost and point your browser to it. Enjoy!

We’ve been recently looking for a self-hosted CRM solution that would, at a bare minimum, provide these features:
A few days ago I created an email address for a new project I’m working on. It is used for a domain I just registered for a client. I logged on this evening to confirm an account registration and saw some emails in the spam folder. I was like whoa, there must be a false positive, no one knows this address, therefore no one will spam me. Guess again, there stood a shiny new email from a company I’ve never heard of, offering me a ‘hand made’ WordPress site.
I keep bumping into questions from newbies about which hosting company they should choose. I mean, these guys have never owned a website in their lives, want to start one (usually a blog), have (barely) no clue about what they’re going to write, and yet they are fretting about which hosting provider to choose.
Webmasters, publishers, SEOers, freelancers, everybody needs to network. Whether you’re looking for a JV partner, a coder to fix a bug on the WordPress theme for that site you’re supposed to launch tomorrow, insight on Google’s latest Penguin escaping their zoo, or just to have some laughs with like-minded geeks, a forum is likely to do the trick. Here’s my insight on some of the big forums out there. I’ve been active in some of these over the years, and for others I’ll present you with some educated hearsay.
