Finding the right adsense niche

The subject of Adsense has been my main focus lately. I’ve spent most of my spare time researching and reading about the subject. One of the most important thing with Adsense is finding the right niche, getting this right can make a huge make a difference in your adsense earnings.

Most people use adword research tool to find high paying keywords and then they build a site based on that. This concept used to work, that is before Google Smart Pricing was introduced. But now days even if you have a site based around the high paying keywords the chance of you getting below advertisers’ minimum CPC for those keywords is very high, at least in the very beginning. This can change if you have high traffic and/or high quality contents on your site. But if you want to start earning quickly you need to change your “tactic” slightly, instead of going after the high paying niches you want to go after the ones have between $1-$3 CPC and have high number of clicks per day, an good example would be Lacrosse. It has around 5000 clicks per day according to the adword research tool. Now all you have to do is get traffic to your site. There’s hundreds or thousands of niche like that out there, it’s extremely important to spend some time (maybe a day or two) researching the niche before doing any designs or codes.

Autobiography Book Partnership


The author of this book is asking for XXXX amount of money in return for 20% lifetime ownership of this book. I’ve never read any books in this genre before, after reading the sample chapter I was surprised that I actually found it to be a quite interesting read. One thing I know for sure is that he’s a good writer! So now, the business talk, the question I need to ask is that will this book sell? what’s the ratio of demand and quantity for this type of book at the moment? also, more importantly what’s the maximum I should fork out for that 20%? I think the way I can find out the answer to those questions is go and do some market research….

I don’t know why but I seem to have a good feeling about this book.

Invest In 3 Characters Domain Names

According to this guide 3 Letter .com and .net domain names pricing are going up by about 25% every month! What surprised me is that$6700) is now worth more than$6400), wish I bought 10 of them back in 1997…

It’s almost impossible to find any or today, even if you can find them they’ll be on the 10k mark. So instead of going after the “hot” cakes right now I thought I’d go find the ones that not so hot right now but will be “hot” in a few years from now.

I started looking at ones mixed with letters and numbers, for example – Depending on the combination they’re around $200 for .com and $40 for .net, which is a reasonable amount for investments like this. 4 lettter domains are also worth invest in, if it’s pronounceable it’s almost certain that it will worth more in the future.

The two places I normally go to find high value domains are forums like digitalpoint, NamePros and eBay.

What I think of 9 Till 5 Jobs


The reason that most people prefer having a 9 till 5 job is because of the “steady and secure income”, they don’t like taking risk; that’s human nature, we always seek for security and ease, we want to do things the easy/common way,why? because it’s “comfortable”.

There’s nothing wrong with getting a 9 till 5 job, but don’t do it just for the money, do it for the knowledge that you would gain from it or do it for certain benefits you want get after, that way the time you invested on this job will be worth much more than the x amount per hour.

One thing I discovered is that most people “thinks” getting a job is the ONLY way to make money. It might be the most common way but certainly not the only way, nor it’s the best way to make money. We got this mis-believe from people around us – school teachers, parents, friends.. etc We’ve always been taught that way, ever since we stepped into the place called school – work hard, get good education so you can get a good job when you older. I used to think like that myself because no one, I mean not one person (from what I can remember) has told me another way of playing this game called life. I’m not going to get into new “blueprint” I discovered because I will have another post just on that.

I have some bad news for the people who thinks a 9 till 5 job is more secure than business owners: –

  • Risk 1 – You would lose your job if the company is not making enough money to cover your wages
  • Risk 2 – You could lose your job if the boss can find someone else that can do a better job than you.
  • Risk 3 – You would most likely lose your job if you made a tiny mistake that resulted a huge lost in profit
  • Risk 4 – You could lose your job if your boss sold the company to someone else and that person has different way of doing things. (depending on how adaptive you are)
  • Risk 5 – Your circumstances, the condition of your health and other unexpected events can easily result losing your job.

I’m sure there’s more but you get the idea (if you think of one please let me know). I think the REAL disadvantage of doing the 9 till 5 job, for me at least, is the fact that you’re “limited” by the hours you can work in a day, and also your growth is (and will always be) depending on the company you work for. The sad thing is that you, as a employee, will have no control over these two things, which means the quality of your life, your family and your next generation are on the hands of someone else. Ok.. maybe I’ve exaggerated a bit, hope I’ve made my point here. The truth is that knowing I’m in control of my life is important to me, because that way even I failed I have no one else to blame but me. =]

Instant Startup Guide, A Supplement to Entrepreneur Magazine

book: Instant Startup Guide, A Supplement to Entrepreneur Magazine

Description: What’s the Big Idea? Getting an idea for your business: It’s not as hard as you think.

MANY PEOPLE think it’s “oh so mysterious” to start a business. As the editorial director of Entrepreneur magazine, I often hear “I can’t do it” or “I have no idea what to do.” Nonsense!

Most people are overwhelmed by the belief they have to start from scratch. They think “What can I do that no one has ever done before?” In other words, they think they have to reinvent the wheel.

But unless you are a technological genius, trying to reinvent the wheel is a big waste of time. If you are another Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, then this is the way to go. But for most people starting a business, they simply need to answer the question: “How can I do something better?” or “How can I do it differently from the other guy doing it over there?”

The Importance of Staying Hydrated at Work and in Life

At your job, you are always looking for ways to perform better and more efficiently while you work. But did you know there are some people who may not be performing at their best because they are mildly dehydrated? For these people to avoid dehydration it can be as simple as knowing their proper hydration level and paying attention to their thirst.

The scientific evidence between cognitive performance and dehydration, although limited, is strong, and continues to grow. A recent survey conducted by GfK Roper on behalf of The Coca-Cola Company, indicated that employed Americans are informed about the merits of staying hydrated, yet many are not putting this knowledge into practice.

About three in four, or 73 percent of those surveyed, said that drinking sufficient fluids throughout the day to maintain proper hydration is essential to being able to concentrate during the day — as many as who said getting a good night’s sleep is essential. Yet surprisingly, 31 percent of those surveyed, especially those who work outdoors, also admitted to deliberately drinking less than they would like while at work to avoid having to take bathroom breaks, therefore overriding thirst signals.

“In a world where many people are consistently trying to juggle a hectic work schedule, people may sometimes override thirst signals and, thus, become mildly dehydrated, which can affect a person’s ability to perform at his or her best,” says Maxime Buyckx, M.D, director of nutrition and health sciences for The Coca-Cola Beverage Institute for Health and Wellness.

Dr. Buyckx notes that such common things as feeling fatigued, lack of focus or concentration, headaches, sleepiness and infrequent bathroom breaks could be signs of mild dehydration, but may be overlooked or attributed to other daily factors in a person’s life. It is unknown what percentage of people in the workplace in fact become dehydrated to this extent, but people who have a pronounced feeling of thirst are likely to be mildly dehydrated. “It’s easy to ignore these signs or attribute them to a busy working environment or personal life. But if people paid just a little bit more attention to these signals their bodies are giving them and made sure to maintain proper hydration, it may help them to be at their best during the day.”

“Your body is constantly losing water through simple acts such as breathing, perspiration and going to the bathroom,” adds Dr. Buyckx. “More is lost through daily activities, especially strenuous exercise or working in high temperatures. So it’s important that it be replaced.”

Many types of liquids help keep the body hydrated. The myth that caffeine causes dehydration is just that, a myth. According to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, all beverages, including those with caffeine, contribute to hydration needs. One example is the popular soda Diet Coke, which is made of 99 percent water.

By visiting, you can learn more about hydration and tips that will help you stay healthy. Consider these ideas:

* Determine your daily hydration needs. Consider factors like age, gender, weight, environmental conditions and activities. On the site there is a Hydration Calculator to help you determine how much you need to drink each day to feel and perform at your best.

* Choose beverages that you enjoy. Several studies show that adults consume about 45 to 50 percent more liquid when it’s flavored. Be sure to incorporate no- and low-calorie options to control calorie intake.

* Eat more fruits and vegetables. They tend to have a high water content, which makes them a great option for helping to meet individual hydration needs.

* Don’t exclusively rely on thirst. By the time you are thirsty, chances are mild dehydration has already set in. Hydrate throughout the day. Try keeping a water bottle or beverage in your vehicle, at your desk, in a cooler or wherever you will be reminded to drink. Take regularly scheduled beverage breaks; ideally at least one break per hour.

* If your job involves traveling, pay special attention to fluid intake on the airplane. High altitudes tend to have low humidity, which increases water loss through the skin and decreases the sensation of thirst.

Proper hydration can help you be at your best throughout the day. Make sure to select the right beverages for your dietary needs and lifestyle.
