Most Reviews that seem somewhat legit on yelp are negative. Most of the long wordy reviews bashing the company are simply used to try to extort money from the company. I don't know why Yelp allows this unless they are in on the scam or another scam.... actually I am pretty sure YELP is not unbiased when it comes to advertisers and non-advertisers. Negative reviews probably get them clients much like the sites rip off report and others. I know a company has to make money but it it seems pretty

Shown below is an email I just received. With the number of websites I have built over the years and managed, it is a wonder that I don't get a lot more of them. I used to respond to people like this just see what they would come back, but with all the spam I get... a response would most likely open me up to even more junk email.For those that are just starting out with a new website, you need to watch out for these type emails. If you are doing a website for a client, be sure to let them know

I just realized that I haven't blogged at WA in over a year. I should be more active here and I am sure I have written something similar to this post before. I am still a member here and have no plans to ever leave. It would cost me money to leave at this point. Thanks Kyle and Carson for that payment every month. I still get excited on the 1st of every month.There are a lot of ways to make money with the Internet and the training here at Wealthy Affiliate is invaluable. I need to take some tim
Facebook changed the layout of pages yesterday, Wednesday August 3rd.At least, I think it was yesterday. I am okay with the layout changes, some things are improved. I think it was done to force more advertising since the promotion block is even more prominent on the pages you admin. Also, be very careful with political posts... like it or not, FB is censoring posts and shares. It has been reported by a lot of sources and I have seen firsthand what they are doing to friends and associates of mi
The Pokemon Go app was released on July 6th, 2016 to the US. On that day, it has been reported that there were 200,000 downloads.The download count is in the tens of millions now and Nintendo's stock has soared. They are making a lot of money with in store app purchasers from players trying to catch more characters to businesses that are trying to lure players. I wonder how many $99 packs of PokeCoins have been purchased in the last 12 days. Bloggers everywhere are rushing to get articles writt
I just an article about a court offering an opinion on the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). It is generating a ton of buzz about sharing passwords for the purpose of accessing information that you are not allowed to access. It says sharing your passwords to netflix or hbogo could result in prosecution.This application seems to be pretty petty, but it does make you think and may make some of us worry. Would it apply to people that live in the same household? What about your kids at colle

There is a lot of differing opinions about using facebook for your business. There have been a lot of social media sites come and go, but I am pretty sure facebook is here to stay. You can choose to build a business without it or choose to use it to enhance your marketing efforts.The co-founder of this site has a lot of great advice about getting bogged down with facebook and I completely agree. For most people, facebook can be a HUGE Time suck that does not get you any closer to your goal. Wit

This is response to a question submitted on my website. It may be kind of basic for many of the existing members that have read my profile and blog posts here at WA in the past.Updated : August 2019Why would I want to host my website with WA?Wealthy Affiliate (WA) provides wordpress website hosting to those that sign up for membership. With an upgrade to premium, you can host several websites on your personally owned domains. If you don't own a domain, you also have access to domain registratio
In December of 2014, I reported on a website that was making me money 2 years after I last posted on it. Back then, it was making on average 27 cents a day without me touching it. I know that is not really impressive, but it shows a little success. I reviewed my ad sense account and saw that earnings had fallen to less than 9 cents a day on that website. That is right $31 for the entire year. With the domain cost of about $10, the webs
