A new Justin Bieber fansite has arrived!
I haven’t blogged in a while. I’ve been busy with my other websites. I just want to do a quick shameless plug about my new Justin Bieber fansite.
My Bieber World – Justin Bieber Fansite :: http://www.mybieberworld.com
It used to be a chat room only site but I decided to make use of it and turn it into a fansite. I know, wtf right? I used to dislike him, not hate, but dislike him.. and I did think that he looked so gay. But DAMNIT. That haircut! The moment he cut his hair and having the hairstyle that he has now.. BAM he turned from gay to hottie. He’s all grown up now and his latest album ‘Believe‘ isn’t as bad. The song ‘Boyfriend‘ and the music video is what turned me from a Bieber Hater to a Belieber.
Nah, I’m not as crazy as other Beliebers though. I’m actually having fun updating the fansite.
I hope Beliebers can support me there. It also has a facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/My.JustinBieber.World
Lately I’ve been getting a lot of messages from ‘visitors’ leaving their ‘mark’ in my cbox tagboard. At first, it was awesome, because visitors actually took time to leave a message and usually when people leave a message in my tagboard, I’d exchange a click back to their site. If they have a nice blog, I’d bookmark and come back again.
But then I’ve noticed a strange pattern. More and more messages in my tagboard but they didn’t sound ‘real’.. their message sound so constructed and sometimes funny and irrelevant to my blog. They started to sound FAKE. Then I realized another thing.. the growing number of tagboard messages have one thing in common – URL. Like I said, I do click the links to give them a traffic back to their site but I noticed that post after post that they all have SHORTCUT URL in them.
Now why is that?
If you’re a genuine visitor, blogwalking and leaving a tagboard message is a good SEO for your site. You get traffic back, and some new visitors. If your content is good, then you’ll have your own followers and if your blog is popular, Google would love to rank your blog high. But why a short url? Like bit.ly/2idyf type of URL. Why would they hide their real URL?
Then I made some research.
I found out that there’s a thing called ‘AUTO BLOGWALKING‘ software/tool that lets you create a message and let the tool SPAM tagboards without you actually visiting the site. WTF. Now blasting your REAL URL to thousands and thousands of tagboards would lead to suspected banning hence why the need to use short URL instead of your website URL. THAT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING.
And the makers of this blogwalking softwares? Malaysians. That explains why some messages were in malay, which was why I thought they were genuine.
I also found out the tools aren’t free either… they’re expensive!
I hate when people SPAM. So now I don’t ever click links that have short URL again. I know now that they didn’t even visit me – they just used a bot to do all the dirty work for them. Well.. for one thing, as a struggling affiliate & internet marketer, there’s something in me that says wow, this is a good opportunity to blast my URL to thousands of websites while I sit back and enjoy the traffic coming in and the income rolling. But as a blog owner, it devalues my credibility and quality of this site that I own. I have been blogging in this domain since 2006 – that’s roughly 6 1/2 years ago. For a good 6 years, I’ve kept this blog low profile. Sort of. Only this year when I’ve decided to become a full time internet marketer that I’ve decided to try some experiments to gain traffic to this site and I’ve been happy with the results.
But when people use automated softwares to do their job with hopes of getting EASY MONEY and EASY TRAFFIC while you sit back and enjoy the show, I despise them. Because there’s no such thing as easy money. And my blog and my tagboard is NOT a place for advertisement so I have enabled CAPTCHA to avoid more spammers. If you genuinely want to advertise your website, or receive a return click from me from doing a genuine blowalking to my site, feel free to post it.

I hate this dreaded error message!
Internal Server Error

I had this error yesterday and if you visited this site yesterday evening, you probably saw the error message too. That was the 2nd time it happened. You know how it happened? Failed update attempt for wordpress plugins. I don’t know why the same thing happened again. I was just updating the plugins from the wordpress update panel, all seemed okay. So after that, I clicked to go back to plugins page and it gave the 404 page not found. So I clicked back, and redid the updating and this time, when I clicked to go back to plugins page then BAM, the stupid error comes up.
I had to contact dreamhost support because last time they fixed it for me. Said something about my database being almost entirely wiped out. So later that night, I got a response from dreamhost explaining my problem.
Turns out the problem was caused by 2 bad lines in my .htaccess file. There were 2 lines that say “Deny from” but there is nothing after that statement to deny so this is causing a syntax error in my .htaccess and Apache is stopping after that error. So they fixed it and all is fine again!
Thank you Dreamhost, my hosting company. I have been with them since my birthday in 2005.. so that’s over 7 years.. and of course there has been some downtime here and there but their service has been top notch and efficient. I love Dreamhost.
Don’t you just hate working? I’ve been trying to work nonstop and staring at the screen is really migraine inducing activity.
I’ve set up a new website!
>> MyMoneyMission.net <<
It’s a new blog where I would blog about my journey to make money online. I know it’s possible. I’ve seen people do it. My marketing ‘idol’ earned $60k last January and $50k last month! That’s $110k in just two months.. wtf. If I could earn that much in just two months I’ll be… speechless. I could already buy a car or condo in cash… Well this means nothing is impossible. It’s a lot of hard work I know but if you commit to it, nothing is impossible.
Need spring pins?
I have 3 new websites. Well actually they’re old – it’s been over one year already since I had them but I never got around to finish the whole site. They were meant to be fansites but now I’m turning them into chat rooms and I’ll slowly work on making them a small fansite soon. But right now, I have no time to do so, so it’ll be just a chat room.
So if you like to chat, don’t hesitate to use the chat room. If you just wanna use the chat room for anything, like just to chat with your friends or whatever, feel free to do so.
