Anthony Robbins new video about Internet marketing

I have been following anthony robbins for the last 12 years. I'm a huge fan of his and make it a priority to check out any new information, interviews or products he has. He just recently released this month a new video in which he interviews internet marketing gurus john reese and frank kern. This video is a little long around 40mins but well worth your time. You can get it for free with no opt-ins or hoops to jump through at the anthony robbins site.

Have a great weekend

A Privacy rights warning to all bloggers

Model Liskula Cohen sues Google over blogger's 'skank' comment

Tuesday, January 6th 2009, 1:29 AM

A Vogue cover girl is suing Google in an attempt to unmask the blogger who trashed her as a "skank" and an "old hag."

Liskula Cohen, a blond beauty who has modeled for Giorgio Armani and Versace, made headlines last year when a doorman at a Manhattan hot spot was jailed after smashing her in the face with a vodka bottle.

Now she wants to force Google to reveal who slammed her online as the "#1 skanky superstar" on a blog hosted by the search engine's subsidiary.

"It's petty, it's stupid and it's pathetic," Cohen said of the sniping. "And when I do find out who did this, at least I'll know who my enemies are."

The defamation suit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, seeks a court order compelling Google and its service to identify whoever led the vicious Internet assault against Cohen.

Her lawyer Steven Wagner conceded it's not easy to identify bloggers who lob insults anonymously, as New York courts have generally declined to force them into the light.

"We think we have a case," he said. "This is libelous, it's defamatory and you shouldn't just get away with this."

On the site, Cohen is ridiculed as a desperate "fortysomething" who "may have been hot 10 years ago."

The Canadian cutie is actually 36, according to records.

"Desperation seeps from her soul, if she even has one," the site spews.

The stinging posts have been met on the blog with fiery comments in Cohen's defense from someone identified only as "liveandlove."

"Are you one of those little dumpy girls who hang off her every word?" liveandlove wrote. "Or do you wait three hours in line at a club, when she breezes right in?" Cohen's mystery defender also theorized that the mean posts were the work of a "silly, silly fat girl."

"Tell me, are you easier to walk over or around?" liveandlove wrote. Cohen tearfully said she's disgusted by the site.

"I'm tall, I'm blond, I've been modeling for many years, and people get jealous," she said. "If I had to deal with everyone who is jealous, I wouldn't have time to do anything else."

Google declined to discuss specifics in Cohen's complaint.

The best Traffic Exchanges: Do they really work?

About 3 months ago i started an experiment using the one of the best traffic exchange sites: TRAFFIC SWARM. Its a manual traffic exchange were you click on other peoples ads to gain credits which in return you use to promote your ads. You have to be logged on to the persons site for at least 20 seconds before you can click on another ad to gain more credits.

For this experiment i decided to test out squeeze pages, opt-in pages, blogs, and affiliate program landing pages. The majority of these pages were geared towards Internet marketers.

With traffic swarm you can have a maximum of 10 ads at once per account(for the free account). So i opened 4 accounts and ran 10 ads for each of the 4 categories described above.

I tried using large and small boxes for the ads as well.

So after getting 300 page views for each of the 40 pages(12000 total) how did my experiment fair?

I got 3 opt ins out of 6000 page views(blogs & opt-in pages). and zero sales in total(from affiliate links and squeeze pages). I did however receive 4 additional back links and out of the page views.

In the beginning i didn't expect much to happen. I knew it would be full of other Internet marketers by myself. The majority of my pages were getting opt in rates around 15-25% and i generally get sales in the 1-3% range.

What these results told me is that its a big waste of time unless you can get alot of credits, put it on autopilot and forget about it.But sitting there day and day out click click click is a waste of time. If you preferred to buy credits it ,may work out favorably for you. In order for that to be worth your while you will need to calculate the CPA(cost per acquisition of a customer). You calculate this by dividing the total amount spent on advertising and dividing it by the # of people that either purchased something from you or or opted-in.

So in conclusion it is a waste of time to click to earn credits but may be worth your while to buy the credits and put it on autopilot. From my understanding pretty much all manual traffic exchanges work the same way so i don't think this strategy will work on another traffic exchange other than traffic swarm. If you still want to try yourself i'd recommend since your account with them accesses over 55+ traffic exchanges. Its like killing 55 birds with one stone.

Let me know in the comment section if you have found a way to make traffic exchanges work for you. In the future i will be posting more of my money making experiments.
