it's official: I am a whore

See the "Sponsored Ads" over on the sidebar? Go click those links and buy something, because I'm gonna get PAID for those ads. Make my sponsor filthy rich and maybe some of the loot will trickle down to ME. Have your credit card ready in your left hand while you click with your right--- or vice-versa if you're left-handed.

Do it For The Children.

Thanks to the lovely and talented chablis for turning me out on the street in my high heels and hot pants.


Rob, how do you get money from these sites? They just look like link aggregators. Most of their links can be found just by searching yourself on any search engine.

Basically they pay him for the use of subdomains, that would be the biggie, and then for linking to pages in those subdomains. By being under, they get a jump start in Google page rank. New page would be 0, but they are on the coattails of a 6, which is also what ours is at AV, thus their wanting to pay us to link to Rob's subdomain pages.

Add to that paying people to link those pages and you get way up in the rankings. People who pay for links on those pages get their money's worth from the traffic from searches. Google Ads on those pages get more eyeballs and generate more. It's almost a science. Having some informational, unpaid links on the pages too lends them legitimacy.

Hmm. Those ads are pretty nondescript. They don't shout "AD!!!!" at you like the adverts on most blogs. Low key - kinda like a callgirl with an unlisted number.

What ads? My browser must be blocking them.

Do you get paid if we just click on them? Or do we have to buy something?

And Chablis is wonderful isn't she?

Now I'd pay for a pic of you in high heels and hot pants!

Good on ya, Rob. I hope you end up with sacks of quarters, and don't get anything y'all can't wash off.
