Flipping Websites Is The Newest SEM Craze

OK so Ive been making a living on the Internet full time for many years now. Ive seen almost everything so I thought.
As someone who has built many websites I understand how a crappy looking site does online. Not good!
Man I remember when BANS first came out. I built some of the worst looking websites with that script. Don't get me wrong I love Build A Niche Store. The developers taught me more than you could know. Probably the best thing I ever did.
But anyway back to this new craze on the web Site Flipping. I have tried to flip sites in the past, but had a hard time finding places to sell then with ease. You know moving the file, domain name, changing the WHOIS listing on Site Point and so on.
I know people who have been doing this website flipping thing for years. They make a ton of money selling sites. The only thing is they are experts in many web fields like Wed Design, HTML, Graphics and so much more. You know the kind of people who code wordpress plugins and the like.
Well the other day I came across this new e learning system made just for this new craze called Site Flipping.
Actually the Home learning course hasn't even been released yet. The Launch is at the end of June. As I was reading some of the pre launch documentation that was released early it looks very promising for me.
What is it? It's a learn How to Flip Websites Code E Learning System. The two guy's developing the e learning course have been around for some time just like me and I have used products they have developed in the past.
What I think I'm going to do is flip my own websites with this e learning for The Site flipping Code
I have so many websites just sitting not making any money what do I have to lose?
The developers are starting to give out free e learning books and videos leading up to the launch day. From what Ive seen just using the free e books and reports will make me better off than I was before.
I guess I'm jumping on the bandwagon early. I suggest anyone else interested in making some cash off of flipping sites to give it a try. Why not most of the materials are free.

Release Of Search and Sitemap Study Is A Gold Mine

In the world of niche marketing we are always looking for information to help understand how search engines work. I always say go strait to the source. Google and sometimes Yahoo. Most webmasters would agree Google is king.
Google has provided one of the most important papers or study we have see in sometime. Its called, Sitemaps: Above and Beyond the Crawl of Duty by Uri Shonfeld. Uri presented his summer internship work studying Sitemaps from a coverage and freshness perspective. He presented the study at at the WWW'09 conference in Madrid Spain.
This study clearly shows how search engines follow site maps and other links on a site. It is so in depth every Web Master will learn something.
Search Engines are looking for certain things within a website and Niche Store Builders need to give it to them. Keeping websites fresh is a important part of this.
Search Engines need more than just being feed keywords these days. SE's are looking for fresh relevant content that is constantly changing and being updated.
If we look at the trends we all see social networking taking over. For example MySpace, Twitter and Facebook. These site are showing up in my stats more and more as backlinks. This tells us SE's are putting priority on these sites that update with fresh content constantly.
By setting up sitemaps and robot.txt files properly we can increase traffic and conversion should increase aswell.
After you read Uri's work you will have new perspective of how search engines work and how sitemaps influence them.

eBay To Close Unsed Accounts With No Activity

In a announcement on the ePN Blog this week it was said that EBay Partner Network will close inactive accounts. ePN is looking for accounts that haven't had activity and will close them. A email will be sent to the users giving a 3 day notice.
ePN has cracked down on black hat marketers and those in violation of TOS. Though ePN said this is not a expiration it is clear they are cleaning house. Many folks start Internet Marketing sites and just give up after learning that it's real work. Sorry to say their is no such thing as a automatic money making program. SEM and SEO is work. You must update your sites and add content regularly in order to generate traffic. Hence their are lots of dormant ePN accounts.
It's sad that folks would let a ePN account go inactive seeing how hard it is to get a account these days. ePN is one of the best affiliates you can have.
If you are considering applying to ePN make sure your site is established and has relevant content before submitting a application. The vetting process ePN uses is more difficult than the one Obama's appointees go through IMO. Have your sites prepared for some heavy duty scrutiny

EBay Category Numbers Changing Again

Any affiliates using ePN should check the category numbers because they are changing once again.
In the past these Category changes have created havoc for some affiliates, but this update only seam to be updates, not a huge reconstruction of categories. I highly suggest you bookmark the page ePN announces category changes and check it every month. EBay is in constant transition and we need to be too. Be prepared and updates like this don't create huge issues as they did in the past

Tax Time Is Coming Affiliate Marketers

Lots of people jump into affiliate marketing without thinking first. Remember making money on the Internet is a business and the government will want their cut.
Even knowing we have 3 months plus to file now is the time to gather your information. I always gather my income first. Many affiliate programs only go back one year in their reports sections. Be sure to download all your income from each and every program you have used over the last year. At the very least print the reports from your affiliates.
Gather your expenses. Remember you are a business like it or not. One good thing about being a money making business is that you can write off just about everything you have purchased over the last year. Just some examples would be computers, back up hard drives, scripts, hosting accounts and even pens and pencils. Any service you use to run your business online can be written off.
Hopefully you have saved all your invoices and email receipts from online purchases. Don't just leave them on your CPU, Print each and everyone of them.
One thing about the IRS is you must at least file by 4/15 each year. Even if you send a incomplete form you must atleast declare your income by then.
Now don't quote me on this, but if you are disabled and on disability Making Money Online as a hobby can be considered residual income which you don't need to report to SS, but you must claim it with the IRS for income tax. Thats how SS explained it to me, but call them yourself. You can't be a LLC or incorporated but you can earn money online. From what I was told is the rules about making money kick in when FICA starts. Thats when you get a job at a business and they start the process of deducting money from your pay check. SS told me if I found a Rolex Watch in the trash everyday and sold it online that would not affect a disability status, but it dose need to be reported as income with the IRS. Again if your making Money Online due to being disabled call Social Security and ask for yourself.
Try to remember the basics. Money comes in and money go's out. The money's that go out can be deducted from the money that comes in which is your income. The total income is what you use to determine the amount you pay tax on.
Start now and save yourself a huge headache in March or April
