Speedlinking – Roll Of The Dice

by derek on May 19, 2008 · 15 comments

In the spirit of being in Las Vegas where you never know what a roll of the dice is going to give you, this edition of Speedlinking includes a variety of interesting information.
1. Andrea, who you may have seen commenting here, has started a brand new blog at According to Andrea. With three posts under her belt so far, things are starting to shape up nicely as she learns the ropes of blogging. Please stop by and share a few comments for Andrea!
2. Leo Babauta recently wrote a letter to his three-year-old son about starting out in life. While this letter may be to Leo’s son, there are quite a few points that are important for everyone to remember.
3. Are you using HitTail on your blog? Being a big fan of HitTail and analyzing the long tail keyword results for my blogs, I thoroughly enjoyed this piece on how to use HitTail suggestions. If you’re not using this service now, I highly recommend you check it out.
4. Michael Kwan, who many of us know is living the Dot Com lifestyle as a freelance writer, recently shared his thoughts on how to make passive income as a freelancer. If you’re embarking on your own freelance writing career, be sure to keep these tips in mind.
5. Now that you have satisfied Google’s requirement for a privacy policy, you might want to do some testing with your AdSense ads. Darren Rowse explains how to split test your AdSense ads to help you understand which ads work the best for your site.
Now, while you take some time to read through these valuable resources, I have another roll of the dice to make here in Las Vegas!

I’m interested in how to make more money as a freelancer. I do lots of online jobs and I want to use my time as efficiently as possible.

Who the hell is this Leo Babauta guy!?
There is only ONE Leo in your life Derek.
Remember that.

Good tips for adsense publishers. Will try them on my other site.


Asia'h Epperson May 31, 2008 at 12:39 am

I read the article. Already putting it to practice since I started adsense. That’s the only way to know which is the ads that visitor will click.
