EntreCard explained: Earn money - get traffic - Part III-

ng cards gives you not only traffic for your blog, but also each time ECs, the virtual currency from Entrecard which can be converted in real $$.

The details for you!

How do i earn money with dropping cards on other members?

Every card which you drop on another member gives yourself 1 EC and the owner of the widget gets 1 EC. When they drop back on your widget, you get 1 EC, too.

That means always encourage yourself and the other members to drop back:
  • by using the Inbox
  • by commenting on the other members blog
  • by link exchange with the other members blog
In the beginning the drop back ratio might be below 50%, the more regular you drop on the members, the higher the possibility will be that they drop back regularly on you, too!

I achieve up to 80% drop backs in the last few weeks since i drop regularly around 300 cards daily for all my four blog.

After you clicked on a maximum of 300 blogs daily, your job would be done for that day.
Usually the members who are the most popular give you a drop-back within 24 hours, some even after some minutes!

Other income sources in Entrecard are
  • writing one blog article per day (25 ECs, sometimes not for every day!)
  • approving advertisements on your EntreCard-Widget (earnings depending on the price the advertiser pays). It starts with 2 EC and can be doubled daily if someone else advertises each day on your widget.
    Advertising will be explained in more detail in one of the next parts!

In the next parts we will learn
  • how to use the Statistics and the Top droppers for more traffic to your page
  • how to get popular within a few days/weeks (and earn more)
  • which blogs you should choose for advertising your own blog
  • and many more things to earn and get more traffic to your blog!
Stay tuned and keep on dropping daily on our blogs.
Don't forget the THREE TOP DROPPERS on this blog will get 500, 300 or 200 EC and the TOP 25 Droppers get link love for the next Page Rank update!!!

Banned from Adsense - Answer these questions!

As soon as you get banned from Google's Adsense Publisher Program, you want to try to reinstate your account. But it is not that easy like you will think. Google has prepared a very long list of questions, some of them are tricky and i guess if you answer something wrong it will end badly for you, your account and a future without Adsense is predictable.

Here are the questions which you have to answer when Google think your Adsense account was used / abused by invalid click activities:

  1. Example URLs where you've placed your ads
  2. Date your account was disabled
  3. Have you appealed the disabling of this account in the past?
  4. Do you have any other active Adsense accounts?

  5. Who are the intended users of your site?
  6. From what parts of the world do your user view your site?
  7. How are your users accessing the web? (e.g. Internet cafes, home DSL lines, mobile devices, university / office intranets)
  8. Does your site content include content copied from other sites of the web (not including RSS feeds)?
  9. What is the source of your site's content?
  10. How many people are involved with the administration of the site?
  11. How often do you update your site?
  12. Have you ever purchased traffic for your site(s)?
  13. Have you ever signed up for services that give users incentives to visit your site/ads? (e.g. auto-surf, pay-to-read, pay-to-click)
  14. How do users get to your site? How do you promote your site?
  15. Why do you believe the traffic to your Google ads is valuable to advertisers?
  16. Would visitors to your site have any reasons to increase your Adsense earnings? If so, why? (e.g. do they know you personally, are they part of an online community, or do they support a particular cause)
  17. Have you or your site ever violated the Adsense program policies or Terms & Conditions? If so, how?
  18. Any relevant information that you believe may explain the invalid click activity we detected
  19. Any data in your site traffic logs or reports that indicate suspicious IP adresses, referrers or requests
Some of the questions are very strange like Nr. 6, 7, 14 and 15.

If Google thinks itself that my web site offers no values for the advertisers, why should Google accept my subscription to Adsense from the beginning on?
Why does Google not approve each website before you copy the code into it?
Can't Google watch itself in the Google Analytics account to check the referred websites?

How does Google detect the invalid click activity?
I guess they have a better Google Analytics account for their Adsense ads to track persons who click too often or who are always the same persons who click...

EntreCard explained: Getting Traffic and Money - Part II-

EntreCardIn the second and third part of EntreCard explained we look into the category of getting traffic to our blog with the help of the Dropping System.

The Dropping System needs two persons of EntreCard. Both members should have put the widget code on their blogs. If you haven't put this code on your blog yet, login to EntreCard and click on the "Get code"-Button. There you can choose three different types of widget with different sizes.

Stop! Before you start dropping cards - use these tools to save much time!

  1. Using the EntreCard Toolbar for FireFox is very helpful, not only because you can browse faster through the categories and have the full menu available with just two clicks, you can also see the actual advertising price of this blog and favorite him.

  2. Use this Pop-Up tool (for FireFox) from Dustin from Blogfiction.org which puts the EntreCard-Widget always in the upper left corner - no need for searching the whole page where the owner has hidden it.
OK, when you have installed these two tools the life will be more relaxed!

Looking for blogs with the EntreCard widget

Once it's on your blog, we have to find the second member who has also the widget on the blog. Simply click on the "Campaign"-Button. Now you can see the different categories which EntreCard has to offer.

At the beginning you should start with your niche, it's the easiest to get some members to drop back frequently (or wouldn't you like to know what the competitors/friends are writing on their blogs?). For me, it is the Finance and Investing category which has more than 1000 blogs.

How to choose which blog you should visit?

There are a few ways to choose blogs:

  1. Watch in your Inbox, usually there are a few members who dropped already their card on your widget.

  2. Click on the Tab "Popular" and you will get the list of the most popular blogs within EntreCard (which should be one of your goals if you want to get much traffic which equals in the end in more money in your pockets ;-) ). Choose from the drop down list your category and click on the first three rows. After that you have visited already 15 blogs. Then continue by clicking on "Next" for the next 15 blogs (or you can choose more rows - up to 24 = 120 blogs)

  3. After you clicked on one of these blogs (Inbox or from the Campaign category), you can do chain-clicking. That means you click on the Ads which are displayed on/ the beside the drop-button. By this way you can reach more blogs from other categories, too.

  4. There are lists available from Entrecard members which you can click daily. You can have a look at a list of these lists on The One Minute Guide - How to drop Entrecards faster
In the next parts we will learn
  • how to earn money with the Entrecard drops
  • how to use the Statistics and the Top droppers for more traffic to your page
  • how to get popular within a few days/weeks (and earn more)
  • which blogs you should choose for advertising your own blog
  • and many more things to earn and get more traffic to your blog!
Stay tuned and keep on dropping daily on our blogs.
Don't forget the THREE TOP DROPPERS on this blog will get 500, 300 or 200 EC !

Increase your Twitter followers rapidly!

Twitter - social network and micro-blogMany users of Twitter struggle with the amount of followers they can get. Usually in the beginning it will be the friends and relatives, later the Online friends join the group of Twitter followers.

After these persons are added as your followers, there might have been a long time period when your Followers increase only slightly or even stayed at the same level.

In case you want to promote products, affiliate links or just increase the exposure of your blog articles, you need weekly or daily new followers.

To track your success in the past and for the future, you should use Twittercounter.

On Twittercounter you can see your own statistics about your growing followers and you can watch the statistics from other members, e.g. the TOP 10 with the most followers.

If you are looking for new or more followers who follow you back to increase your exposure, you can have a look at these websites (like I did last week, see picture above).

They are free of charge and you can get at the moment more than 700 followers. This section will be updated with new Twitter-"follower"-services in the coming weeks!

  1. Twitterfollower.com (A free service from John Chow, world famous Internet marketer)
    After the registration a nofollow button is available for the persons who don't follow the rules of adding you!

  2. Get more Twitter followers, just refer 5 followers and you can get up to 19.530 followers

  3. Twitter List Builder

Be aware of TwitterTrain. In their terms -which you usually just check the box- is written that they are allowed to use your Twitter account for promoting their own service(s).

If you refer 5 people and they all refer 5 people each your number of followers could increase like this:

Level Number of followers
You 5
Level 1 25
Level 2 125
Level 3 625
Level 4 3,125
Level 5 15,625
Grand total: 19,530

All you did in the above example was referring 5 people!

The only disadvantage with these systems is that you have no control if the followers are interested in the topic or products that you are promoting.

Therefore you should use the "old-fashioned" recruiting method - Keyword search in twitter and then adding these Twitter members!
