Lets do this.. again!

I lost touch with my sites for some time as I moved to another city leaving Bhopal. I need to get things working again.

Bad thing that happened is that I failed to update my site at time in this period.

Good thing that happened is one of my site started getting three times traffic. I failed to figure out the reason but I guess its because of the latest Google algorithm update.

My wish

I want to build something nobody has imagined. Just like apple.

New Coupon Script for Coupon India

I was using couponpress wordpress theme for my coupon site but it became very difficult to manage expired coupons and also to do SEO for coupon pages for specific stores. I tried to figure out a way but later considered using some other coupon script rather than wasting my time.
I purchased this Coupon script and made a new site on a sub-domain. Now I will make both the scripts work together to more benfits.

Small Change

Very small changes can have a very big impact on the future.

On times you may think that your life is totally fucked up but what is all required is make a very tiny change to your life and you will get back on track pretty fast.

Screwed big time by Google Penguin update

Google recently updated their search ranking algorithm. They name this update “penguin”. This update totally screwed me.

I have this coupon website CouponIndia.in and I was growing in traffic with every post and working even harder to get things even better.  And now this update cut the traffic to less than half.

Now I have this decision to make whether to keep on posting the coupons in the same way or to read Google webmaster guidelines again and work according to it.

If I work according to Google it is going to take double work and more important thing will be it is going to be annoying for the users as I will be posting more about the offer or store or something stupid lines that users are not concerned about. They come to my site to see coupon and they see only that. So following google’s guidelines is going to give bad experience to users Winking smile

I know it is not possible for Google to get see every site with different way so I will need to update myself.

Lets see how it goes.

A long back I was watching a cricket match and the commentator said a very insightful thing,

Good batsman do basics right.

I seriously think this is what you need to do in anything you do if you want to be good.

Most of the people think of doing great things but they stress on doing accessory things more than the basics. Sometimes they become/seem good for a short time but later they fail miserably.

Now the main thing. I know this and writing about it but I need to do this to become good.

Right Time, Right Place, Right Offer

This is the concept of all the business and marketing. For example, If you have a great offer it may not see the response it deserves if the time and place is wrong and same is true with other conditions too.

You need to have all the three things correct to get the correct response.

But this should not be used as an excuse for not doing things. You have to find the correct combination by doing things. It may be wrong but you will learn to do things right more frequently. You will earn more later even if this offer fails.

Stay away from Cloudflare

Some time back I became a little obsessive about increasing my site’s speed and I did a lot of thing and managed to get my page loading time come down to half than earlier.

1 thing I did was to use cloudflare to get a free CDN for my site. It did some better things by getting the response time down but the thing that made me ditch cloudflare is the captcha they place on the incoming traffic. You might have seen that page.

As they say they place this captcha page to screen the malicious attacker but what got my attention is that they place this Google AdSense ads on those page. If the page is for attacker then why are they placing that page. Some may argue that they are giving free service so they have to cover the cost somehow. May be. But isn’t its against the AdSense policy to get ads clicked by robots.

Ok I ask you. If you know some page is going to get hit by robots regularly and you may lose your AdSense account then will you place your ads on those pages? I won’t.

I removed the cloudflare after using it for some time because it was showing me that captcha page every time I visited my own website (may be I am a attacker on my own site, at least they consider I am). Its quite annoying seeing that page even though I was getting benefit of it. Think about the visitors who are not getting anything from cloudflare, how annoying it is for them.

After I removed my traffic jumped a bit. I don’t mind my site being slow if the traffic goes up. I don’t think you will mind either.

Flight Promo Codes

I told you about the travel affiliate marketing I am trying to get into in my blog post earlier. I have been successful with it on couponindia.in but until now I am not been doing good with the new site flightdiscountcoupons.com.

It becomes really annoying when things doesn’t go according to the plans.

The site was instantly on the search result for my primary keyword but later it sank to page 3/4. I need to get this site come back into the rankings. But the biggest headache is that now I have 2 sites to get rankings in the search results.

Wonder will I be successful or not.

If you need to book a flight in India or outside India you can do it at

This is interesting

It has all came down to nil.

I was making some nice commission from my new website for a month or so and since day before yesterday the commissions has came down to interestingly negligible level. Until now I am unable to find a reason. The traffic level is same if not rising as it was previously, click rate is even higher but don’t know why it is not converting at all.

I am only getting 1-2 sales per day now where I was getting some 6-10 per day.

Is it a sign to not to depend on this site or something else.

I should find a way round. May be PPC may prove to be a good idea.

Late Night Ideas Rocks

Sometime I get these interesting ideas when I am unable to sleep at night. Most of those ideas I forget until morning but there are few which don’t let me sleep, I have to leave my bed at those wee hours to do something with those ideas.

I started one such sites way back and that site grew like something I never expected that too solely on pure on site SEO. It became base of my online growth.

Something similar happened again but this time this site is earning me much more in much lesser time.

About 4 months ago I got this idea of starting a website and started working on it the very minute. For this site for the first time I purchased a premium wordpress theme as I believed on the idea. I thought I will at least make this website able to cover cost of the theme. This site has now earned more than that from each of the 3 affiliate network I am using on this website in this month alone.

Its showing a great growth potential if I keep working on it. The site gets high quality visitors who are ready to spend money. The site crossed 200 visitors per day mark today and its rising in google like crazy.

I hope it keeps on growing and I will be able to learn some important lessons from this site too.

Learning from movies

I don’t watch movies too often but I have noticed that whenever I watch one I get so much motivated by it that I work good for at least some hours if not days.

Good thing about me learning from movies is that I absorb god things from it like working harder, loving better, helping others and something like that.

I enjoy movies which motivates more than how much they make me enjoy.

Ping me by comment below about what you feel like after watching a movie.

Flight Discount Coupons

I started this coupon site couponindia.in for Indian online stores a while back.

Few days ago I was going through the statistics of the site, I noticed that most of the earnings have come through online air/flight booking sites. Although I have thought that mobile phones and electronics should have earned me more.

Lets analyse it now. What are the reasons.

1. Flight booking sites gives more commissions as compared to electronics  and gadget sites as they make more from every customer. Look at my favourite site flipkart, they pay 1% commission on mobile phones, 0.5% on computer accessories.

2. Flights are booked by people who have real need and not just hobbyist. These people don’t think about spending money rather they need the facility. If they can save some money that is good but not primary idea.

3. People who book flight/air tickets are earning people or rather say spending people so they can bring you more commissions.

There may be more reasons but I am convinced by these.

Finally, I decided to start a dedicated flight discount  coupon site. I looked for domain that can bring some traffic from Google. I always like to have all my primary keywords in the domain name and I searched for Flightdiscountcoupons.com and to my surprise that was available. Now this domain belongs to me and a site is in building process at this domain. Have a look Smile

Cheap Nokia Lumia 800

Ever since android released I have been a fan of it and purchased Samsung galaxy android phone at the time when none on my friends have even heard of the name of it.
Before android I had Nokia n72 Symbian phone. Knowing my techy nature my friends always asked which phone will I buy next and I used to say, "a windows phone" (those primitive ones). Later android became my first choice as it was a better choice, obviously.
When Microsoft launched windows 7 mobile OS it failed to lure me. But since Nokia launched windows phone I have been eyeing Nokia Lumia 800 smartphone because I have been a fan of Nokia's hardware capabilities. It used to cost close to Rs. 30K and I believe that phone is not worth it. I kept an eye on the phone's price on flipkart and today when I looked at the price it has came down to Rs. 23,590. I think the price is better now if anyone think of buying this phone.
I have recently purchase HTC Flyer tablet so will wait for sometime before buying another gadget.
But if you are thinking of buying this phone then this is the time. Flipkart link is here:
Nokia Lumia 800

Update: It looks like price is fluctuating. Flipkart has updated price to Rs 24,000 today.

Which book Barack Obama wrote

Someone asked me this question and I knew about only one book written by him "The Audacity of Hope". So I quickly opened my favorite online book store and searched for the books written by him and here I got this long list of books.
He has written many books as co-author and few solely. But no matter if he is co author these books are worth reading you are searching for success in life.
Have a look at these books:

When it came to making a online wishlist where else I could go other than my favorite flipkart. So here is the link if you want to buy me something or you want to buy yourself something.

Get free Domain

I wrote about this previously about me not sticking to one thing and jumping around at lots of stuff. Regardless of how much I try I am not able to control this habit. Hopefully I may stick to something someday.
For now I have decided I will not try too much to stop myself , rather I will try to stick to few thing for a limited time of the day and do my jumping stuff ;) as usual for the rest.
I have decided to stick with 2 projects at the moment. First is Get free Domain and second is Coupon India. I think these 2 projects have lot more potential then the other projects.
With Get free Domain I am trying to help fellow webmasters and bloggers who are trying to make their mark in this online world but are bit tight at budget.
I have gone through same situation where I was not able to buy a domain name and premium web hosting and tried to make few website with some free web hosting and sub domains provided by them. I worked hard on those websites and it all wasted because people do not consider website on sub domains reliable. So I had to shut them down.
I wan't to help people with same situation in getting premium top level domains like .com , .net , .org for free. Now actually free but they won't have to spend money from their own pocket to get these domains.
My second project Coupon India says all in its name. This website is about sharing discount, promo, coupon codes for all the major online stores in India.
I hope both of these project will grow with time.

Buy Harry Potter Books in India

Like me if you are big fan of Harry Potter series then you can buy these books in India from flipkart.
I remember I read all the 7 volumes of Harry Potter on my mobile phone. I somehow got hold of these books on internet and converted them into prc format and read first 6 books on my Nokia Ngage QD mobile phone with the help of mobipocket reader. Last book I read on my Nokia N72 mobile phone with same setup. Screens on those phones were really small, especially when I compare them with my HTC flyer tablet screen. Reading on tablet is really a bliss now.
Lets get back to the Harry Potter book stuff. I have read all the books but still I ordered them from Flipkart to keep them in my collection. I don't know whether I will ever read them again or not but still I want to keep them.
I strongly recommend buying these books as they are going to remind you of these magical days in upcoming boring future. Have a look at the link below.
And here is the Amazon link if you are not from IndiaHarry Potter Paperback Box Set (Books 1-7)

What! I am selling!

I got this great surprise today while checking the stats on different sites. I am selling products from Flipkart as well as linkshare. I wrote some posts here and there and placed my affiliate links in them and forgot about them. Now these posts are somehow started ranking in the search engines and getting some nice traffic. The traffic coming is also good and is converting. I believe I need to start writing these kind of posts with affiliate link in then. Some may get traffic and I may start making more money. I won't mind that :)
