Linking Quest! Chinese blogs and Comments!

Posted on by Donald in SEO Leave a comment

I find my self and late hours of the night, surfing Chinese websites only to submit spam my link to their blogs. Actually I was doing this five minutes ago trying to increase my google awareness for my websites. I thought it was funny!

Here I am… searching through google back links, translating pages and looking for the comments section of a webpage! It’s my pot of gold, and the funny thing about it, most of my competitors are doing the same thing. Well the ones that wants to move forward at least.

The sad thing about it is… I have to guess how all these different comment forms work… and it’s like a game. Come on… come on… YES! Another link!

Things don’t always go great though and I get the error pop ups that are in Chinese…

Its fun… just thought I post something real quick! Cheers!

 


Mustang Troubles, Speeding Ticket and no Dyno.

Posted on by Donald in Cars Leave a comment

submain_interest_image.jpgWell today I was supposed to take my mustang to have it dynoed for a good price. The problem was I didn�t make it. It’s about 20 miles from my house; I had map quest directions… and I couldn�t find it. The worst part about this trip… I got a speeding ticket on my way there. Bloody Hell!

I swear to god, the only time I sped the entire trip, and this was to pass a vehicle, was when the cop saw me. He was actually behind me in a black unmarked car. I had my radar detector going, and he wasn�t scanning anyone for speeding… until I tried to pass the car ahead of me. The second I started to go, my radar started screaming at me, I even put on my breaks trying to stop, but it was too late. That fucker… sorry… pig bastard, turned on his lights.

Of course I had to find a spot where it was difficult for him to get out of his car, I stopped on an overpass. I saw him wait for traffic to ease up a little so he could get out, and run over to me.

Anyways, I got a $190 ticket and couldn�t find the place to have my car dynoed. What a waste…

87mustangsmall.gifAlso I’m pissed off because my truck is making funny noises since the incident with the deer; Red Mccombs used aftermarket parts when fixing it. I�m thinking about taking it back to them and telling them to fix it. When I got it back the first time, the hood had chips in it. They said they didn�t do it and I was basically screwed.

My Mustang is also starting to make funny noises, it makes a rattling sound when in 4th gear, and the transmission is gets really hot and pushing hot air through the shifter into the cabin.

So today is basically a bad day for me. That’s my post.

 


School is starting! Website’s being designed! And War!

Posted on by Donald in Life 2 Comments

lifeschool.gifA lot of stuff is happening in my life right now. I have a lot to do and think about. Yet I find my self very much taking my time, and having more fun then I should; I guess because I’m about to start school again, and these last few weeks are all I have left of the summer.

But I’ve done a lot during this summer! I went to California and spent four to five grand the month I was there. I lived in an apartment for free too! I had my first major car crash! I took a train, and flew first class air fair for the first time. I went to Las Vegas! I fixed my Mustang, and now it’s a beast! I’m learning to play guitar! I’ve done a lot. I have so much more going on though.

SEO-Share.gifI’m currently working on a new website, based on World of Warcraft free guides and other content. I have someone designing that for me at the moment. Soon after it’s done I’ll be swamped with tons of work. I plan to create by hand thousands of pages of content for this site. I already have the content, I just have to upload it with the templates and SEO each page. I should be able to create 25-50 pages a day if I try hard.

Now that I think about it… I don’t really have a lot to do besides to finish creating my new site, maintain my existing ones, update this blog every once in awhile, and go to school.

Ah Yeah… My mom and brother and friends want me to help them with their sites… “You’re the expert!” BS! That’s okay; they’ll take a couple days each to create… I gotta teach them how to maintain it, and I’m good.

war bomb.jpgToday, Israel threatens to invade Lebanon, Iraq war seems to be coming to an end. Ethiopia is invading Somali, gas prices are still climbing, the US economy is weak, Bush is still president and it’s raining out side. The power of religion and money are evident.

(Lighting strikes) I’m turning off my computer before it gets fried.


Fucked up Cruse at Cielo Vista

Posted on by Donald in Adventure Leave a comment

Every Saturday night in San Antonio a group of us meet at the ‘Old Albertsons’ on Babcock and Prue road. On average there are 10-20 people there with all sorts of vehicles like a 350z Nissan, Honda Civics, Accords, Ford Mustangs, Mazda RX7s and other nice vehicles. We are just a group of people who love cars and like to meet like minded people to talk about cars. During these meets we sometimes go on cruises to different locations and like to push our vehicles to their full potential. One spot would be the Cielo Vista road down I10 highway. Cielo Vista is about a mile long road with a lot of twist and turns some almost 90 degrees; the road has a dead end turn around. In our group we have some hardcore drifters, some who just want to watch and others that are just starting out. We’re a mixed group of good people.

 

On this particular night Fu (drifter car) and Robert lead the group up the road; Brian and Zach (350z) went 2nd. I (POS Oldsmobile because my mustang is in the shop J ) and Sam followed in 3rd. We usually all head up the hill together but there was a problem with another car behind me which left the rest of the group behind.

 

As usual Fu and Brian left me behind as they sped up the road going 50-60 MPH on the sharp turns. It was the first time driving my Oldsmobile this way and I must say it held up pretty well. Powered with a V6 3.0 engine, every turn was answered by my passenger Sam with words as, ‘SLOW DOWN!’, There’s a Sharp Turn Ahead!, Ahhh! and other frantic statements.

 

Once we reached the top of the hill we turned and waited for the rest of the group. About 5 minutes later we saw a strange vehicle coming towards us. The vehicle which looked like a truck had its high beams set on us as it proceeded to block our exit. The driver then jumped out of his vehicle with a laser pointed M16 Assault Rifle! He placed an ammunition clip in the rifle and started to walk towards us!

 

At this time I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I have only once been a situation like this but that’s another story. I just couldn’t believe that there was a guy 10 feet away from me pointing an assault weapon at us. It didn’t register until the guy acting like Rambo locked and loaded his weapon making a metal on metal sound. Was this guy going to rob us? Did he want to steal Brian’s 350z Nissan? Or even kill us?

 

Once locked and loaded the guy pointed his rifle towards us and said he wanted our driver’s licenses. As Brian reached for his wallet you could see the laser pointed on his forearm. We were all stunned and afraid for our lives. Who is this hillbilly pointing an assault rifle at us? Zach the youngest of us was shaken. Sam and Fu didn’t say a word. Robert my brother was mad. He asked the guy several irrelevant questions and proceeded to curse at the stranger. Brian handed his ID to the stranger as well as the rest of us. The stranger took our ids and said he was placing us on “citizen’s arrest” for tearing up the road and doing donut holes. We simple drove up the road, parked our cars and waited for the rest of our friends. We did nothing wrong. Brian called the cops.

 

Parked on top of a hill away from the world we were hostages by a crazed man with an M16 Assault Rifle. After 5 minutes the guy backed up towards his vehicle, still pointing his weapon towards us and stood there waiting I assume for the cops. We stood helplessly in his headlights like deer.

 

Zach said something funny to cheer us up. Brian and my brother continued to provoke the stranger while waiting for the cops. One statement I remember my brother saying is, Fuck you! towards the stranger. We called our friends waiting on the bottom of the hill to tell them not to come and let them know that we were being held hostage by a crazed man. Zach farted a few times, claiming it was stress related. He later peed on the side of the road. Sam and Fu were surprisingly calm. Brian was very angry. He called his mother which I believe he said she is a lawyer and asked her for advice. Twenty minutes into the wait the guy with the assault rifle turned his car around and started to take off. Robert asked where he was going. The guy said the cops knew where he lived and knew where we were. I believe the guy went back to his house, which is on that street, to store his assault rifle. Brian wanted to give chase because the guy had our ID’s. We decided to wait for the cops.

 

Ten minutes later SAPD shows up and said, ‘Everyone raise your hands, who has the assault rifle!?’ Brian came to the rescue here and explained the situation. Brian also informed the cops his father is a Captain in SAPD and surprisingly the cops knew him. They told us to put our hands down and asked us a few more questions.

 

The sheriff arrives! The sheriff who we’re sure is a friend of the crazed man with the assault rifle blames everything on us. We were wrong to be there. The man pointing the weapon at us on a public road did nothing wrong. He had the right to kill you, which I’m sure was bullshit he said to scare us. He had nothing on us. We were parked on the road with no signs of donut holes being done. The sheriff gave our ids back and told us to leave and to never come back. This was fine for us!

 

We took off to HEB where the rest of our fiends were parked waiting. We hurriedly told them to leave, ‘the cops are behind us, take off!’.

 

Brian later said he was thinking about jumping the guy with the assault rifle as he handed his ID over, but didn’t want to take the chance. He wasn’t sure if we would jump in to help him. I told him I would help and I know my brother would help. I’m pretty sure the rest of the people with us would have helped but I’m glad he didn’t take that chance. As Brian said, ‘the man with the gun makes the rules.’

 

Tonight could have been a very bad but it wasnt. No one was hurt or went to jail. We all came home safe and now have a story to tell or write. One thing I have learned is that its good to know people high up in the chain of command and I for one will never go up Cielo Vista again! Its a sweet drifting road but its not worth getting shot by a Crazy Rambo Wanna be Motherfucker! I recommend if you do go down Cielo Vista road, do not stop for anyone! Turn your happy self around once you reach the top and keep going! If you see a large white vehicle approaching you!! FLOOR IT!!


Ebay Suspension / Suspended Accounts

Posted on by Donald in eBay 85 Comments

Please note this guide is a couple years old and has been outdated with time. If  you’re looking for a solid updated guide to setting up a new eBay account after a suspension I recommend you read eBay Stealth – eBay Suspension Guide. It is written by me and kept up to date. Good luck everyone! – Aspkin

Ebay for most people is great for getting rid of unwanted items or to make extra bucks on items lying around the house — but for some people it means finical stability and freedom from the corporate world. There are people out there that depend on eBay for a large part of their business.

Hardcore eBay-ers can do thousands and thousands of dollars a day in sales and the next day have their account suspended and unable to create a new account, I would know I was one of them. Fortunately after tons of trial and error, I’m able to create new accounts even after being suspended and continue with my online businesses.

What happens when eBay suspends your account?

  • You may never use the same credit card number to register a new eBay account.
  • Your email and eBay login trigger cookies with eBay, that list you as a suspended user, and ban any eBay accounts on your network or accounts you have ever logged into.
  • EBay places cookies on your computer with all your information on it. If you try to create, or log into another eBay account. EBay will link the accounts and suspend them also.
  • Your name, address, phone number among many other personal identifying information is logged and used against you with any new accounts you create.

Way’s to get around this and to create a new account safely.

  1. Clean your computer. Delete any software from eBay that might be forwarded information to eBay aka turbo lister. Delete all cookies and logged information from your internet browser.
  2. Change your IP address, keep a log of IP address, and do not use the same one from a previous eBay account. Command prompt > type ipconfig or visit http://www.geobytes.com/IpLocator.htm?GetLocation to check your current IP address.
  3. Register a new eBay account with a different email address. Preferability a Yahoo or Gmail account. I have found, if you use your own domain to register an account, example [email protected], eBay will be able to ban your account faster as most likely only you will use this domain and eBay is not dumb.
  4. Register with a pre paid credit card that can be throw away and acquired easily.
  5. Try not to use the same information twice when registering. Example, name and address.
  6. When asked for a bank account and routing number. Change a few numbers with the account number. Just remember choose payments to be made by your credit card.
  7. There are a couple more important factors to know but I do not want to give all the secrets out. Through trial and error you’ll be able to thwart eBay and continue with your business. Just remember never use the same information twice, especially your IP address and always remember to delete your cookies and never log into old banned accounts.

On a side note… the reasons I have been suspended were mostly stupid. My auctions would either be all images; sorry I like them to look nice. Or have a link to one of my websites, which is also bad. These are horrible reason to kill someone’s business. The good thing about it is, every time eBay bans one of my accounts. They lose out on hundreds of dollars in revenue. Why pay after they ban you?

Want to learn how to get back on eBay and stay on? I wrote a complete step by step guide called ‘eBay Stealth‘ that will show you how to safely and easily get back on eBay and PayPal and stay on! If you have been suspended by eBay and you don’t know what to do, then you need to read my guide.

Good luck!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest Half Ass Movie Review

Posted on by Donald in Movie Reviews 1 Comment

pirates2_b.jpgThe first Pirates of the Caribbean is great! We had action, drama, comedy, adventure and an ending! This time around, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest is only part one of two with no ending?! What we have is a movie that is 30 minutes too long with too much going in circles and not knowing when to stop. There was actually a point in the movie where I could point out and say, Ok this becoming ridiculously too long.

 

pirates.jpgThe movie opens with Will Turner and the sexy Elizabeth Swann about to get married. When they are cut short with arrest warrants and are sentenced to death for helping, Captain Jack Sparrow.

 

I’m trying to think of the rest of the movie, but I’m having trouble guess that shows how much this movie stank. I mean, ok Will goes out to meet Jack Sparrow who’s on an island avoiding some sea monster’ acting as a God for some random tribe on this island.

 

Of course this tribe aims to eat Jack and his crew, and Will find his self in the middle of all this.

 

They eventually escape the island and head out back to sea where they meet Davy Jones – captain of the ghost ship the Flying Dutchman.

 

Actually Will meets Davy Jones first out on some wreckage where he finds his father is part of Davy�s crew!

 

La La La

 

Jack is watching this happen from ehh 1000 feet away and Davy notices and somehow transports his self to Jack’s boat to claim Jack’s life.

 

_11331373320.jpgDavy tells Jack his time is up, and his blood debt is due. Something like that, but Jack some how buys him 3 days to come up with 100 souls to replace his own etc etc.

 

I grow tired of this review..

 

Jack finds Davys heart hmmm I forgot.. this movie doesn’t have an ending son of a bitch!

 

styPIRATESforlifestyle.jpgOverall I give this movie a C+ because it’s funny, very deep, and decent action and drama.

 

I just wish it would end like a regular movie

 

I have a headache arg.

California Trip Just Started – $3000 Already Spent!

Posted on by Donald in Adventure Leave a comment

Considering I live and eat for free where I’m staying… $3000 spent is ridiculous.

The list:

  • $500 insurance deductible to fix my truck
  • $600 to buy train tickets to California.
  • $300 for a new phone (I jumped in a pool with my old one.)
  • $50 Swimwear
  • $200 hotel room for one night
  • $200 loss at a Indian Casino
  • $200 odds and ends
  • $600 first class plane ticket home
  • $150 I pay for dinner night.

Equals $2800 in 10 days! SOB!

cali3.jpgI know I’m forgetting a few things, so add another $200 and we have $3000! WOW! This is not even counting the stuff I have to pay for, car payments, insurance, house, two phone payments, cable, internet and more. I estimate to spend another $1000 the last two weeks I’m here. ARG!

Was it worth it?

cali81.jpgI’ve rode a train for the first time. I’m getting ready to fly first-class airfare for the first time. I’ve seen the famous California La Brea Tar Pits, and million year old dinosaurs being prepared for display. I ran my business away from home for the first time with success. I loss and won decent amounts of money at a Indian Casino. I’ve seen such beautiful sceneries while here. I drove on the edge of the Pacific Ocean with a crazy half asleep simi-drunk person going up to 90mph while trying to watch the dolphins jump out the ocean and survived. I’ve watched a nothing fight from a five story balcony in the middle of the night. I’ve got so drunk I puked all over my self and not care. I’m getting a tan from going swimming often. I’ve made an angry cat like me. I visited a small Danish town and ate some free chocolate. I’ve learned so much about the world outside Texas.

cali4.jpgI can go on and on, but the point is money comes and goes. Living in a beautiful place rent free and with good friends is Priceless. At least that’s what my Visa card tells me.


Increase the Doorways to Your Website!

Posted on by Donald in SEO Leave a comment

Most webmasters know that the more content you have equals the more money you will make, in any business! If you sell calendars for a living, and you write an original article everyday for a month, it’s like creating 30 new doorways to your website which expands your chances for your website to be found.

MAY - SEO Pie Chart.jpgI’ve noticed that only original content with static pages are 100% guaranteed to get indexed by Google. Don’t waste your time using free content unless you really change it, or add to it. Hundreds of people before you are most likely using that content on their websites already, and Google won�t take the time to index any new pages with the same content.

The best thing to do is use untapped sources of content, here a few tips:

 

  • Outsourcing $3-$5 per page of original content.
  • Royalty free content
  • Writing your own content using DragonSpeak

And again, static pages have a better chance of being indexed then dynamic generated pages.

Page rank is another concern you must have when creating a website. Page rank is a system of ranking websites based on their popularity. The more high quality links you have back to your website, the higher rank you will have. Your page rank is one of many factors that determine your placement in search engines. If your page rank is 5 and a competitor of yours is 3, you will most likely rank higher in search engines for the same keywords.

Image_ChartArrow.jpgOf course there are many factors in search engine placement. Search Engine Optimization is a process of optimizing your website for search engines. The better your website is optimized, the easier it is for search engines to place your website based on the keywords you optimize for.

When you combine theses three things, original content, high page ranking and search engine optimization, and multiply this by say a hundred. You will increase your sales with higher traffic which is targeted for your business! Easy!


Can’t Drive… Taking a Train

Posted on by Donald in Adventure Leave a comment

Since I hit a deer a few day’s ago, my truck is now in a body shop and I was forced to take a train for my trip to California. The train ride took a long time! Almost two whole days! Luckily I had an entertaining friend who rode along with me, who her self was stranded. She was riding with me in my truck to California when I hit the deer, I blame her for it. Lol Just kidding. 🙂

AMTRAK_009.sized.jpgThe train ride was boring, we slept most of the way and the food and service stank. I know next time to take a plane which would take only a couple hours, instead of a couple of days wasted on a train. We stayed in a small room, with a bunk bed, and a pull out bed. The person I was taking the trip with, didn’t like heights, and she like to sleep a lot… so I was basically forced to sleep too, which sucked.

The AC was out most of the trip. We stopped it seems every 30 minutes. When I did finally go to sleep, the beds were horrible! I had a back ache either way I slept!

We did have a power source though, so I got to play games on my laptop. Space Rangers 2 is a blast! It takes some time getting used to, but it’s very addicting.

Well, we finally made it to California this morning. I just took a shower, and I’m ready to start my vacation with my friends.
