Are you Ready to Win some Cash? The enternetusers Giveaway continues!

Birthday Prize Giveaway, enternetusers Site News 742 comments

enternetusers-birthday-bash.jpgMuch like the opportunity to win the iPods the other day, this giveaway requires you to do only one very simple thing, and you can do it right here in the comments section of this post. But first…

The Prizes:

All are listed in US Dollars unless otherwise mentioned.

How To Enter:

In the comments section of this post (and you’re welcome to post your entry on your blog if you wish, but it’s not required as long as you’ve posted it here) finish this statement: “If I had a million dollars…”

Sure, we don’t have a million, but we’ve got quite a bit here to give away! $3,364.33 just in cash and Amazon Gift Certificates (and another couple bucks in non-American money with a bonus NFL Pro Bowl Ballot that we have no idea the monetary value of) to be exact!

So there you have it. Be funny, silly, serious, it doesn’t matter! Just finish that statement in the comments section of this post and you’re entered to win one of the above prizes.

Rules: One entry per person. If you have already won something from one of our other giveaways, you are not eligible to win. Winning one of the prizes listed above will prevent you from being able to win any other prizes for the duration of the giveaway.

Winners are chosen at random using a random number generator. You may not “pick” the prize you want, we will award them in the order that we receive the random winners.

This contest begins at 9am on Friday, October 5, EST (New York, USA) and ends on Saturday, October 6 at 9am EST (Again, New York, USA). We will close comments at that time.

PS: We are about to turn the enternetusers Birthday Bash into OVERDRIVE! Up til this point we’ve been giving prizes away every 24 hours - but in a few hours we’re going to accelerate the pace a little and the giveaways will start coming every 8 hours (with a few more 24 hour ones thrown in) until the end of the weekend!

Make sure you’re subscribed to our feed now or you’ll miss out!

Update

This one’s closed, and winners have all been notified by email.Check out our newest 24 hour giveaway, or see what’s going on in the 8 hour collections!

How Old Are You? POLL

Featured Posts, Reader Questions 105 comments

Time for this week’s poll. This week I’m asking a pretty basic demographic question:

How Old Are You?

I’m asking this because I’ve heard a number of people recently speak about blogging as a young person’s thing - however in talking to many enternetusers readers I’ve found that the age range is quite broad.

How spread are the ages of enternetusers readers? We’ll soon find out.

If you’re reading this in RSS you’ll need to come on over and vote here.

How Old are You?

Looking forward to seeing the results on this one!

How to Know When A Post from Your Blog is Submitted to Digg

Social Media 17 comments

Amit has a great tip to help you keep on top of whether a post from your blog might have been submitted by one of your readers on Digg.

It basically entails searching for your URL on Digg and then subscribing to the RSS feed of that search. Sometimes it’s the simplest tips that are the best ones.

Why would you want to know if your post has been submitted? Well for starters it’s interesting to know what your readers think is Diggable - but it can also help you to give the Digging a little extra help by adding a digg button or link to the Digg page in question so that your readers can give it a kick along.

Another 24 hour giveaway - Where are the poets?

Birthday Prize Giveaway, enternetusers Site News 465 comments

enternetusers-birthday-bash.jpgCalling all wannabe (or professional) poets!!

This one closes out at noon (EST - New York, USA) on Friday, October 5.

Prizes at stake:

How to Enter:

It’s “Ode to enternetusers” time! All you have to do to have a qualifying entry to win one of the above 5 prizes is to leave a comment below with a poem about enternetusers. It doesn’t have to be a “love poem” or written in any particular style (though yes, rhyming would be nice). You don’t have to link to anything or write anything on your own blog - you simply have to write a poem about enternetusers the website or Darren, the man behind the site, right there in the comments section (of course if you really want to share your Ode with your readers you can post it on your blog - but we’d also ask you to share it here in comments so we’ve got them all in the one place).

Please include the word enternetusers or Darren in your Ode to help us catch all of these comments in Akismet.

There will be no judging, so please feel free to write BAD poetry!

The random number generator will choose 5 winners who will be notified by email.

Here comes the rub: If you have already won something, we’re sorry but you’re not eligible. If you win one of the iPods, you will then not be eligible to win anything else. Entering is not a guarantee of winning anything, and this whole thing is just for fun so if you think you’re a bad poet, write something anyway that somewhat resembles poetry. We seriously don’t care if it’s good or not!

Check out the full prize list (now updated to show which prizes have already been awarded or are in progress!) and if you’re not subscribed to the RSS feed by now, you’ve likely missed your chances to win a whole bunch of cool stuff already!

PS: If you’re looking for a little ‘inspiration’ - here’s an Ode that ProPoet Robert Bruce did for enternetusers a while back:

Sorry, had to remove the video because it was acting all wonky… if you like, you can view it here.

Update

This giveaway is closed, and all winners have been selected and notified. Thanks for all the really fantastic stuff (yes, even the “bad” stuff) - You all amazed both Darren and myself with your creativity!

Make a Donation to Lit Liberation

enternetusers Site News 7 comments

Here’s a quick shout out for a charity project that I’ve been supporting lately. Along with a number of other bloggers we’re trying to raise money for public education projects via LitLiberation.

It’s also a bit of a competition between those participating - we’re up against the communities of other blogs - but already the enternetusers reader community has donated over $1000 and impacted the lives of over 60 students.

To donate head over to the DonorsChoose.org: enternetusers page - we need another $8796 in donations to reach our $10,000 goal!

Picture 1-23

Ultimately I don’t care if you do it via the enternetusers page or another blogs - I just hope that as bloggers we’re able to give a little something back and make a difference.

WidgetBucks Update on Reporting Delays

Advertising 32 comments

Earlier in the week the WidgetBucks launched (read our first impression review here) with a fair bit of fanfare around the blogosphere.

Since it was announced I’ve had a number of readers ask me why they are not seeing any income in their reports despite there being clicks on the ads (it is a pay per click ad system). I shot WidgetBucks an email on this and the response was as I’d expected - they have an auditing process in place that means there is a 48-72 hour delay in seeing the actual income figure reported.

Why does it take so long? - The reason given is that it takes time to get reports back from their advertisers.

This is the same problem that most similar advertising programs have in one way or another. Chitika only updates all figures once every 24 hours and then audits them at the end of a month (reducing the earnings), AuctionAds have a delayed system too (where you see clicks on ads immediately but it can be days to see what you’ve earned on a given day as a result of it being based upon Auctions that happen over time).

As a blogger I find this frustrating. We’ve become used to systems like AdSense which show us not only impressions and clicks very quickly after they happen - but also the income earned. Of course AdSense is run by Google who have some serious resources to throw at the problem.

As someone who has talked with a lot of these advertising networks personally I also understand the challenge that they have. They need to balance the needs with publishers and the relationships that they have with advertisers (and the systems that the advertisers need to work with). After all - if the advertisers don’t get looked after then the whole system falls down.

I’m not sure what the solution is - but hopefully WidgetBucks can shorten the waiting time in conjunction with their advertising partners - or develop a predictive system that gives publishers an indication of how much they’ve earned to speed up the process. Otherwise I suspect that some publishers will become frustrated with it and give up.

How is WidgetBucks Performing?

I’ve been testing WidgetBucks on one of my blogs and while I’m yet to see any earnings reports I’m pleased to see that their CTR is very similar than other ads in the same position. I’ve rotated it through a split test with Chitika and AdSense in the same position and see both Chitika and WidgetBucks outperforming AdSense on a CTR basis in that position. The real test will be to compare earnings figures. I suspect these results will vary considerably from blog to blog and even based upon ad positioning.

Google’s Speedy Indexing of Blogs

Search Engine Optimization 57 comments

Just minutes after my post about WidgetBucks went live it was indexed by Google. Readers reported seeing it ranked #1 for ‘widgetbucks’ just a few minutes after the post went up. I checked after 20 minutes and saw this - note the time reference ‘23 minutes ago’.

Picture 1-22

Lara noticed the same thing during the first prize giveaway yesterday on enternetusers. That post ranked highly in Google within minutes of being posted.

I’m not sure how wide spread it is, but I’ve tested it with 10 or so other well known blogs and see the same thing and have heard a few bloggers reporting similar things in the past few days.

It looks like Google could be using Google Blog Search results in their main search queries to give Google users a more up to date search result - something that puts bloggers at a distinct advantage over other kinds of more static sites.

24 hour giveaway - Blogging tips get 24 prizes!

Birthday Prize Giveaway, enternetusers Site News 129 comments

enternetusers-birthday-bash.jpgThis giveaway will run from noon Wednesday to noon Thursday (EST - New York, USA).

We’ve got a really great list of business/blogging related stuff to give away, and since we just love really great “blogging tips”, we thought it would be great to combine the two into one related giveaway!

First, the prizes up for grabs:

Yes, you counted right - there are 24 great prizes available for this giveaway! All of which are suited toward entrepreneurs, professional bloggers, and anyone who has a website of some kind!

How to enter:

All you need to do in order to win one of the great prizes above is to write a brand new (sorry, no archives allowed) post on your site that gives blogging tips. You may feel free to adapt it to the topic and style of your blog in any way you see fit, as long as it’s some kind of “tip” about “blogging”.

Some examples:

Are you a “mommy blogger”? Write a post tip about how to Actively blog and deal with the bubblegum in your child’s hair at the same time.

Are you a “travel blogger”? Write a post tip about what someone traveling abroad might need to bring with them in order to”keep up the flow” of their writing/posting while away.

Are you a “foodie blogger”? Write a post tip about the best snacks to have at your desk for maximum food-to-brain flavor and power.

See? You don’t have to have a blog about blogging in order to enter! ;)

When you’re done, put the link to your entry in the comments below. Feel free to suggest what prize you’d most be interested in, and if the random generator chooses you, we’ll do our best to get you either that prize or one of the ones close to it. There’s no guarantee you’ll get the one you ask for - but we will do our best.

If you want your readers to know that you’re participating in this then please do feel free to link up so they can participate too - but it is NOT a requirement to link back to enternetusers in any way.

Remember, this activity closes at noon on Thursday (EST) so get writing!

Notes: One entry per person (NOT per blog), and if you are chosen to win one of the above prizes, you will not be chosen to win anything else for the duration of the giveaway week.

These prizes not your cup of tea? Check out the other great prizes up for grabs during the giveaway!
Make sure you subscribe to the RSS feed to keep up to date on what’s going on!

Update!

All winners and sponsors have been notified by email! Go check your inboxes for an email titled “enternetusers Winner!” (Make sure you check your spam boxes too, just in case.)

If you haven’t heard from me, please feel free to continue entering the giveaways!

Win two 20″ LG USB monitors from DisplayLink in the Birthday Bash Giveaway!

Birthday Prize Giveaway, enternetusers Site News 342 comments

enternetusers-birthday-bash.jpgThis one’s going to be open until 8am (EST) Friday, so you have PLENTY of time to enter, and it’s easy!

Prize Description:

Be one of the FIRST consumers to own not one, but TWO 20-inch FlatronWide L206WU USB-based monitors provided by DisplayLink!

displaylink-logo.jpgThese LG monitors are one of the first USB monitors out in the market powered by DisplayLink technology. DisplayLink believes professional bloggers and web users would really appreciate the ease and convenience of lots of screen real estate so you can spread yourself out and accomplish more and enjoy more. Because these LG monitors use USB, you simply plug the monitors into your laptop or desktop, and start blogging away!

DisplayLink Technology: FlatronWide L206WU USB-based monitors

How To Enter:

This one’s super simple… Spread the word about our little birthday celebration and just write up a post about the enternetusers Birthday Bash and link to it. Then, come back to THIS post, and leave a comment below with the link to your blog post about the Birthday Bash, and after that link, the word “DisplayLink” (yes, it’s case sensitive, and once again is to help us choose qualifying entries as well as to help us get the valid comments out of Akismet easier).

Example comment:

http://www.yoursite.com/archives/the-post-you-wrote/
DisplayLink

And for those of you who have already linked to the competition, simply place the link where you did it in comments below THIS post like outlined above and you still qualify!

Hopefully this competition will generate a little buzz and add a little value to our sponsors by bringing attention to the competition. Don’t worry - it’s the only giveaway that we’ll ask for a link back to enternetusers - the rest will be different.

We will once again close off comments and choose one winner at random on Friday at 8am (EST). Winner will be notified by email, and will receive their monitors in 4-6 weeks.

Please note: If you enter for this prize and are chosen as the winner, you will not be eligible to enter for any future giveaways throughout the end of the Birthday Bash (with the exception of the final giveaway on Monday that everyone will be eligible for), so please make sure that you’re either willing to risk missing out on something else or that this was “the big one” you’ve been waiting for (keep in mind that over 700 people entered the first giveaway - so you’re not guaranteed of winning anything - it might be best to enter everything you have some interest in winning). You can always enter on the other posts between now and Friday morning, however if you are chosen for one, you will not be chosen for this one or any others.

Check out the full prize list and our previous giveaways thus far, here, here, and here.

And remember to subscribe to the RSS feed if you haven’t already! Coming this Friday will be several posts that are very time sensitive!

Update

We’ve closed off new entries and the winner of the monitors is Vincent Sparreboom!
