YouTube Idea

Image representing YouTube as depicted in Crun...

I’ve decided to make this more of a personal blog – kind of a window into my life. Not too specific, there’s still a lot I don’t want to reveal. More of a “working journal” to keep me on track, patterned a bit after the success of Pat Flynn here.

Today for the Crookham project I worked on the Treater/Bagging line part. I decided that it would be best to have 2 fields for each of the numeric values in the MERGEDATA file – one for the numeric value, one for the decimal value. It’s easiest to build the character representation of the numeric now rather than worrying about it later when the tags are created using Barcode400.

Next I have to tackle the actual merge process. I was thinking about linking the BC400 formats with the HHBATPF table so tag types will automatically match the tag formats.

Don was also there today. Kent seemed to be in a better mood about the servers. Looks like Cisco and Don may be figuring out whatever the server issue is.

I had a great idea inspired by the concept in this Source-Wave post about using existing YouTube videos to promote affiliate links. Becker has some great points about 1) how ineffective banner ads and contextual links are in a post, and 2) how video improves a web page’s ranking. I figured on dog-gonnit.com I could promote the ClickBank dog grooming book using YouTube videos. Video about, affiliate link right below it.

Then, the thought came to me – what about WP Robot? It posts videos, and I can modify the template to include the affiliate link.

I then went to Micro Niche Finder and found several search phrases that involved dog grooming.

In WP Robot I set up the following (after some trial and error) template:

<div style=”text-align:center”>
{youtube}
<br>
<a rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank” href=”http://f5175j10omhk4q09vaxdvd1p6z.hop.clickbank.net“><h4><u>Click Here to Learn How Easy it is to Groom Your Dog at Home!</u></h4></a>
</div>
<br>
{amazonlist:3}

[random:25]{ebay}[/random]
<br>
Click <a rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank” href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_grooming“> here</a> for more dog grooming info.

and created a campaign using the keyword phrases. The keyword phrase is always the title, and the Socrates theme will surround it with H1 tags. That, along with the video and the Wikipedia link, should suffice to get the page ranked (or, at least, that’s the theory).

I checked eBay today. $418 as of the 11th. That’s nearly $1100 if the trend continues. Amazon not so great at $4 for 4 products from HelpUsFind.com. Hopefully that improves with the fixes I made to Curation Club

    How To Convert A Numeric Value To Amount In Words? I want a formula to convert a numeric value to amount in words in microsoft excel.

    View Comment
    • If I understand your question correctly, you want to convert a number you have in an Excel sheet into the equivalent in word,e g. if you have 123 you want excel to convert it into “one hundred twenty-three”.
      Unfortunately Excel does not have such a function so you’ll have to convert all numbers manually.

    WHAT IS A NUMERIC VALUE?

    View Comment
    • Umerical value = absolute value = a number’s distance from zero on the number line.
      For example, |3| = 3, and | -3| = 3. So we can say that -3 and 3 are 3 units from zero.

    How To Extract The Numeric Value From The Eighth Character From A Cell In Excel? Please help me
    give me a formula which extract the numeric value from the eighth character from a cell in excel

    View Comment
    • If the original value is in cell A1…

      =MID(A1,8,1)

      Granted, this will simply return the value of the 8th character. If you want something more complex, you will need to write a VBA function

    Have Heart Break Up…..Breaking Edge? So for those of you who may know, Have Heart broke up this past weekend. I was there….I was just wondering if anybody knew why they broke up? Some guy told me it was cause Pat Flynn broke edge, and I’m having a hard time believing this cause Pat seems like a really solid guy and I’d hope he’d tell us if he did. I mean, he’s a great influence on me as a straight edge person, and while I’m edge for myself, it would definetly sadden me if I learned that he did….So does anyone know the real story? What happened here?

    • I only know what I read on their myspace…which was something aIong the lines of “we can’t do this band the way we would prefer to anymore”….but I haven’t heard anything about Pat breaking edge. I’d STRONGLY doubt it happened too, considering they played their last show on the 1st ever “National Edge Day”. Sucks they broke up, but I’m stoked I got a chance to see them out here in Australia before they did.

    Link??????? I have a website that has free online novels on it. But they are links. And recently I found out some of the pages I link to have ads/links that link to the sites that have a listing of their page. They do this to thank sites that list their novels. I just want to know how to create those ad/link box things that people put on.

    http://amateurnovelist.blogspot.com/ Here is an example of one of the novels I list, scroll down to where it says “thanks” and see those ad boxes. A site that creates them would be helpful.

    Who Will Be Benched First Matt Cassel Or Russell Wilson? I say Russell Wilson as much as I like the guy as a football player, Flynn is just getting paid too much to sit on the bench. Matt Cassel may have left his teammates with no faith in him but seriously who else are they going to play Brady Quinn? I have a feeling the seahawks will loose to the panthers next week and then he’ll get benched. Wilson can be a great quarterback just give him some years.

    When Flynn is healed from his injuries I think they should start him and see how he does.

    • Matt Cassell. He is the epitome of a system Qb just like your Brady. Sorry friend :( LOL. Cassell only thrived in the NE system because I mean come on buddy what Quaterback wouldn’t? If Peyton was in the Pats he would have 5 rings hahaha. I know you secretly like Peyton :) I’m going to make you a Peyton fan just watch!
