I haven’t written here in a while. It’s Good Friday 2012 and slow in the office, so it’s not a bad day for an update and to practice my typing. See when I write posts directly from my head I can just type, and it allows me to practice typing without looking at the keyboard. I first learned to type this way in 3rd grade, but like most 3rd graders I could care less about typing, so I cheated. Of course now I wish I had taken it more seriously.
So what have I been up to in the internet world. Well I’ve been focusing on SEO, what works, what doesn’t work, what I have time to do, what I can pay other people to do, etc. I’ve found some good deals on Fiverr where I was able to buy Google plus ones for a few sites. I also bought a link wheel for a site, and 8 article submissions for another. Overall I think I spent some money wisely and wasted some money at the same time. I do like having Google likes on my sites, and buying them are so much easier than trying to collect them from friends.
I’m also trying to branch out and try some other creative ways to get links. I submitted a few pages to Reddit which have done rather well. Then I noticed the sportsbook subreddit links to a few external sites like Doc Sports and others. I though “Man I would love one of those links.” Well instead of begging the moderator to add one or several of my sites to the sidebar, I requested that I become the moderator for r/sportsbetting instead. In my opinion this sounds much better than r/sportsbook anyway. I’ve fairly confident that I’ll become the main moderator for this subreddit, and then I can add whatever links I want to the side bar.
I’ll also take moderating that seubreddit very seriously. I love Reddit and to get a chance to build and develop a good subreddit is awesome. Right now I’ll be competing with sportsbook, but it’s not that big a deal. I have 14 subscribers to their 1,000, but I feel like it’s more natural to look for r/sportsbetting, so I imagine that once I start updating links and content, I’ll be getting most of the new subscribers going forward.
Aside from that, I’ve been fucking around with my Super Bowl site and my site about MLS betting mostly, I’ve once again put the idea of writing baby books to the side to focus on building sites. I really wish I had the time for both, and maybe one day I will. But I just don’t right now.
So that’s about all for now. I think this has been a good update. I’ll try to update this site at least once a month. I really love this domain name, and it’s nice to just relax and type without some kind of agenda. So that’s it for now. Time to develop content for another site…
