Progress At Last

Tim Freeman's Blog - A General Blog - No Data
Gangs of War - Mafia Game - 28,384,237
Where Can I Find - Mobile News Blog - 15,774,793
Abandoned PC Games - Abandoned PC Games - No Data
Top Mafia Sites - MMORPG Topsite - No Data

Not the best. I am content though for the moment. Gangs of War has been having the most visitors so far. It is also one of the newer ones of my domains. I am happy that it made it into Alexa though. I had been looking around on various domain worth websites. Trying to gain an insight as to what GoW has as far as SEO. Then it appeared after only around 11 days. Not bad. I have another site that is just a little bit older and for some reason it is in Alexa already.

Gow doesn't seem to have many backlinks according to the domain worth websites. I can't figure out why. I can sometimes find them with them, other times they all show up as none. I know I have some out there. I have went and did some backlink building. Nothing major, but at least around 10 sites or so .

I know I use GoW in my signatures around forums. That helps to gain backlinks. The more I chat in the forum, the stronger that backlink gets. I hope. Seems like right now I am chasing a dream with GoW. I am trying really hard to make it work. So far I keep seeing results so there is no need for me to give up yet.

Today I worked on APCG. I added roughly around 9 new games. I still need to meet my quota I set for myself of having 50 games by the end of the month. To be honest I can do it in the two days I have left. I have a cookout tomorrow to go to, but when I get back from it I could pull off at least 15 new games in an hour and a half or less. Do the same thing again tomorrow and I will surpass my monthly goal. I have not been putting as much effort into APCG as much as I should. This is why.

I added statcounter to APCG so that I can get some demographics of my site. Upon doing that I did get some good info. I noticed that I was already on the front page of Google with this site, for various keywords as well. This came as a shock to me. As there are more reputable sites out there with a .com domain. APCG is #3... I repeat...#3 for the keyword of "abandoned games".

So 2 thumbs up to APCG! Now I just have to finish what I started with this site. If it makes any revenue, I will turn it into a .com. With a better name of course. As well as add some new features. Lets not get ahead of ourselves though. I did the same search using Google Chrome and couldn't even find APCG. Funny huh?

Here is what statcounter is telling me though. I seem to be getting a lot of good spots on these keywords.
So like I said. I am just going to keep posting abandoned games. It is going to work or it is not. I hope it does though.

A Muse Myself - A Ramble

No, I am not talking about amusing myself. I am talking about a muse. The thought of being able to have a lot of ideas, yet not being able to use any for yourself. Everyone has this feature in some sort. Normally people are only good at a few main talents. Yet I always found out I could do just about anything I wanted. I always had ideas to save the world, or an idea for an easy way to fix a situation. It didn't really benefit me when coming up with these nifty ideas. It simple made life better for everyone who it was involved with.

As I said of finding myself talented. I can do anything it seems, Except excel in one said category. I have always been pretty gifted with technology. Yet I can't seem to bust onto the scene doing what I want. I can make a small presence. Yet not make a home run.

Yet not to frown. Keep trying. Keep pushing and try harder to make it all better. That is what it is all about. I keep pushing myself, I have learned many new things over the weeks. Improving in many areas. Is that what life is about when you feel like no matter the task you can complete it?

Once you complete it, it brings joy to you. You have achieved a goal. Now will the same action bring the same joy each time. Or does it lose the value behind working hard to obtain the reward it gives. Life brings upon us funny tricks like this. Some goals can be repeated and it is the same, other fail. Which brings on us a new thirst for a new goal.

A rotating cycle of feeding for knowledge. No wonder the smartest people of the world was sought out to be so crazy. They led a life with a constant thirst. Much like a vampire

Ways to Make Money from Being Online

The best method I can think of is making some sort of digit product to sell. This can be many things such as

1. Multiplayer Online Game. Players can buy in game items, upgrades, or special perks. There are many genres at which to choose from. It seems the biggest thing in the market today is Mafia, Army, Ninjas, and Zombies. If you enjoy playing the game you will get enjoyment out of it yourself. Along with being able to be online for you users of the game for support. The best way to get new members for free is to make listing on topsites and MMORPG sites. The more the better. Have your users vote on it to make it more popular and bring in even more people. Also have a referral system set in place so that your users can invite their friends, earning something for the referral is a plus to get them to do it. Ad some adsense and let it go. The best adsense method I can think of it PPM. You will not get as many CPC adsense revenue with a game like this.

2.  eBooks. Anyone can write them, even you. If you have an eBook that you can sell, you would be surprised at the money people will spend or to be honest about it. Think micro. How many people will spend $5.00 for a digital eBook that is there as soon as they pay. Compared to a $50.00 Book bought in a store, better yet another eBook in the same topic, just selling it for cheap. If you can make 25 micro sales at $5.00, compared to the one sale of $50.00. You would actually be making more money with the micro sales.

3. Web design company . Even if you do not know how to make websites. No problem. There is a simple solution to this. All that is needed for this is some start up capital and a little time and effort on your part. I have read a recent eBook that told of this little venture.
  1. Get simple website that looks professional enough to pass for a good web designing company. Create contact information. All the good stuff that a web designing company would need to have on a website. 
  2. Once you receive your first offer. Charge around $500.00. 
  3. Find a freelance programmer for hire. Offer them $125.00-$200.00 to make the website for you. Remember that there is always someone out there willing to work for as little on the dollar as they can. Some people do not even work for a dollar and hour if they chose not to. Although you want to be careful as to whom you choose. Make sure they person has a reputable status within the community at which you  had found them.
  4. Receive the website from the freelancer
  5. When happy - Make payment
  6. Deliver the website to the customer.
  7. Collect payment.
Cost was in the range of $125-$200 = -X     -X + $500 = $300-$375. That would mean you would make around 300 to 375 Dollars for basically nothing. If you can get a client base and build up to where you do a just a handful of these jobs a month, you can be making some serious money.

PTC services. Paid To Click is an online business model that draws online traffic from people aiming to earn money from home. Find a site that will pay you to view advertisements, or click on things, even complete registrations and surveys. A great site that I use and have been using for some time now is.

Now see what I just did there. I advertised my referral link. If you sign up using my referral I will earn: 20% of what my referrals earn. Each new member that I refer will also earn me 4 points when they complete their first offer over 50¢! Please keep in mind when referring members that they only have offers for US, UK, and CA members. Any members that are referred outside of these countries have no earning abilities, therefore they will earn me no commission. Not a bad deal if I don't say so myself. You can do the same thing I just did. Refer someone to use a site or product. You earn affiliate money from them. As well as being able to make some extra change along the way by completing offers yourself. There are many PTC sites out there, so you should be able to find one that suits you.

Packing A Lot of Information

I was just sitting here thinking about the amount of web design stuff that I have self taught myself.

  • Html
  • PHP
  • Javascript
  • CSS
  • Adobe Fireworks 8
  • Adobe Dreamweaver 8
  • Paint Shop Pro 8
  • SEO
  • Google Page Ranks
  • Backlinks
  • Metadata
  • and much more....
It is kinda crazy once I think about it. I have dedicated so much of my time to learning this stuff. I try to make it all work. Yet it seems like the www already has everything you can think of. If not someone else will make it!

Mafia This Mafia That

As of lately I have been staying pretty busy. I have managed to make another site. Top Mafia Sites - Mafia MMORGP Topsite. I wanted to get into this industry for a few reasons. First. I own a mafia game. So why not make a site that can help promote it as well as driving traffic to my competitors and maybe earning some cash from them as well. It seemed like a good idea to me. Not many top-sites specialize in mafia games.

Update May 7

April and May have been a good month for ole Tim Freeman. I ended up getting a job so it has taken out time on my writing. Not a bad thing, I see it as a good thing. I am making solid money now instead of relying on small pocket change income from my endeavors around the internet. Already got a raise and working on another one because I am in the process of being promoted.

Not bad huh?

LG 900G/GW300 Tips and Tricks

I recently purchased LG's 900g. I got an amazing deal on it at Wal-mart for $29.99. Upon searching around the internet for information on this phone, I found that it was hard to obtain this information. Most sites didn't offer answers to my questions. There was a forum where they listed all the technical information, with users asking questions. Some of them were answered but not some of the important ones.
