Best Of The Week – Money Blogs

I had been neglecting this part of the blog for awhile now but I thought I would get back into the swing of things as I had more time this past week to make some daily rounds and catch what people are writing about.

First off my congrats to Jonathan Volk for hitting his first $3,000 day. If you will remember, Jonathan is the author/owner of Affiliate Unleashed from whom I got a tshirt from. Jonathan has become a daily blog that provides kickass content mostly aimed at Affiliate Marketing. Jonathan recently did a guest post on John Chow providing helpful tips on Evading The Google Adwords Slap – Guide To A Great Quality Score.

Zac Johnson recently added another category titled CPA Spotlight to his blog. Zac is reviewing affiliate programs and offers to give people the heads up on what could be hot to promote. So far I have caught posts over offers and programs such as Boca Java, eHarmony, and Forex Currency Trading. Zac is also the author of the infamous free Super Affiliates Guide To PPC Marketing. It goes without saying that Zac’s blog is a daily read.

Maki over at Dosh Dosh blogged about reaching 10,000 RSS Subscribers and why people subscribe to a blog. A very informative post that actually goes against the grain a little bit. Instead of showing what he DID do for the blog, he explains what he DIDNT do. Dosh Dosh is a regular favorite and another daily read for me.

Paul from UberAffiliate goes against the grain a little bit too. Unlike me, Paul does not really reveal too much of exactly what he does. With that said he did open up and do a little Case Study over Diet Pills and how he ran it. Even though it looks like he didnt stick with the campaign he does go in depth explaining everything he did and the revenue he made indicating that the niche could be profitable. UberAffiliate is yet another daily feed that I scan over daily.

Mark over at 45n5 did a pretty cool post over winning your blog’s popularity contest. 45n5 is yet another daily read and Mark seems to come up with good thought provoking and sometimes argumentative posts. 45n5 also sports their version of the Top 100 Make Money Online blogs, which (IMO) needs an overhaul. I believe Mark will be Affiliate Summit West in February.

Just some great content from some great folks I visit daily!

You forgot Shoemoney!

Nice! I see that Jonathan Volk hit his $3,000 using PPC. Man, I’ve got to study this. I wouldn’t mind blowing a couple thousand dollars if I knew I would make $5K or $10K back.

Actually alot of people are actually making $3k a day using PPC. I know one fella who starting doing PPC back in last June and is somehow neting $4k a day now (of courses he’s not fully telling me how :p). The thing is that all of these guys are quite vague on what “exactly” are they doing in regards to PPC. While it’s a bit annoying, I don’t blame them cause I wouldn’t be spilling my secrets and techniques all over either if I was making that much. They all seem to say persistency, testing, patience, and the willing to lose LOTs of money is the key…but I think theres a little bit more going on that I don’t quite know about yet. Plus by the time these guys do reveal their methods, the market is already somewhat saturated and sets in pace for another avalanch of failures by the rest of us jumping to try out from their postings.

There’s also a degree of *who* you know and how much they’re willing to help that can also steer you in profitable directions. Ruck is more clearer in his methods and seemingly more willing to help which is why I like it here better than the others :).

Needless to say, if I can “dig” up better info on how some of these methods are worked, I’ll make an effort to do a better job of being less vague here :).

I can’t believe how many people posted about this. This is the 3rd post that I found about these posts.

Nice roundup.

The blogroll is a great add.
In addition, I create custom pages on my blog to feature content.
It’s nice SE juice too!

Paul of UberAffiliate somewhere mentioned that Jon was a spammer? ;)

I don’t think he is but who cares if he makes that much per day?

It’s a pity that Mark Wielgus from 45n5 discontinued the top 100 money making blog rankings.

There was some good info among the listings.
Maybe someone else will pick up the pieces (eh, Kris?)
