If you want to make money from affiliate and pay-per-click programs and networks without spending any money of your own (that is, with no overhead), then you need to use a reliable free host and a free domain name. Do not use the free host's subdomains for your web site, because when the free host vanishes, all the links you created, the ones pointing at your web site, will be useless. Yes, you will be able to move your site to a new host (if you kept a backup), but your site's address (the URL) will change.

Over the years, I have often read that thousands (probably millions) of webmasters swear that BLUEHOST is their favorite web host.

Forums are most often a waste of time for affiliate marketers. You not only have to muck your way through hoards of useless replies (moderators let users post a lot of stupid one liners), many or most forums do not allow affiliate links (except, sometimes, in your signature). I hate it when forum posts/replies get top rankings in search results; I do not go to forums for trustworthy or authoritative information. I think most forums spam the search engines, in one way or another.

I have been helping a friend with Internet video streaming. Here is what I said. I am sure that you will get all kinds of questions about why the video won't play fast, etc. You will have to tell your audience to 1) Try a different computer or 2) Get a faster Internet connection or 3) Download and/or upgrade their Windows Media Player or 4) Download and/or upgrade the media player PLUGIN for their browser or 5) Try using a different browser, e.g., switch from Firefox to Internet Explorer or 6) All of the above.

I added a Pownce module to this blog so that AffiliateBin will post entries to my pownce.com/affiliatebin/ page. This is the test entry. Also, I had to use one of the older versions of the Pownce module, since the lastest version (April 2008) caused a fatal error in OAuth.php.

You will probably receive more traffic from search engines when you submit sitemaps, that is, xml files that contain lists of your sites' pages. In fact you can add sitemap creation modules to both the Wordpress blogging platform and the Drupal community platform (the modules will create your sitemaps for you).

PayPal is a necessity on the Internet. You can add/link credit cards to your PayPal account. When a PayPal account balance drops to near zero, PayPal uses the linked credit card. That way the merchant or service you are paying only sees your PayPal account, not your credit card. Your credit card is protected. The payees don't see your credit card information.

For years I used to write entries about my daily activities in an offline (paper) log so that I could go back and see how my time was spent. Then I forgot about it. Now I can keep a log online with twitter.com and update it via my Google Talk instant messenger. I do not even have to sign in to Twitter. Here is the log I started yesterday: twitter.com/affiliatebin Twitter can kind of give you an alibi, because you will know where you have been.
