Can I Win a Macbook Air?

Shoemoney Contest

ShoeMoney has started another contest.  This time there is a chance to win a Macbook Air.  You can enter just by commenting.

Each day a random commentator is selected and given a free T-Shirt.  Then at the end of the month, one of the daily winners is selected to win the Macbook Air!

This time I chose a t-shirt for my girlfriend.  I figure a hot chick in a ShoeMoney t-shirt is pretty good linkbait!

Google Forces You to Use Yahoo

If you search using too many words or too many flags (ie: intitle, inurl, etc…) Google won’t give you the results.

We’re sorry…

… but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can’t process your request right now.

We’ll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we’ll see you again on Google.

Yahoo does not do such things.  More and more SEO’s are using Yahoo over Google to do keyword research.

.Me Refunds

I just got back 1 refund from Godaddy.  However I need another.  I tried registering the following

You.Me (still not refunded)
Just.Me
Tickle.Me

Just.Me was going to be a dating site.

Tickle.Me was going to be a fetish site that linked to Adult Friend Finder.

You.Me was going to be a dating site as well.

 

It would be nice through a big twist of fate if I ended up with You.Me.  I refuse to register anything on the .Me world unless it is a single-word.me.

More .Me Domains

I’ve gotten 2 more .Me domain names.  I’m not telling you what they are for now.

You.me seems to be in error.  It consistently keeps showing up as available and has yet to show up in my domain manager.

At $40 a pop ($20/year with a 2 year minimum) these domains are very pricey indeed.

The 2 .Me domains mentioned above get over 300,000 monthly searches in the form of “word1 word2″ in Google so keep your fingers crossed for me.

Just Registered You.Me

I just registered http://you.me

Edit: I think there will be major refunds on this, I am willing to bet that I don’t get this.  It is still showing up as available on GoDaddy.  I won’t get my hopes up though.

What to do with it.  Hmmm…

Well, I have 3 main options.  Sell it, build it or lease it.  I have no idea what it’s worth just yet.  If you’re interested in buying it, contact me through this blog.

I would like to throw a shout out to ShoeMoney.com for reminding me of the “.me” registration opening up today.
