Isn't it too bad . . . we're BLACKED OUT on UVerse, and unable to see the debate.  Don't get Fox News Channel.

#326 : Fools Gold - web advertising

Do you sell ads on your web site? As you know, web advertising is everywhere and everyone has become immune to it. We almost never hear any complaints about ads on web sites these days. But if you sit back and watch what's happening, you might think different. Do you think you're getting rich by selling web ads?

Once upon a time, the advertising industry wanted so badly to get rich on the Internet they would do anything to make a dime. Since business and industry were really skeptical about buying ads online, the advertising industry became prostitutes in order to lure advertisers. They got desperate. Some idiot said, "You don't have to pay anything unless someone actually clicks and buys something!" When met with more resistance, complete idiots said "... and you don't even have to pay a lot, just pennies!" Of course the advertiser loved that. The web became a consignment flea market. That spelled the end of the publisher's advertising market.

So you think you're getting rich with web affiliate schemes, and Google? You're giving away your web space in exchange for a percentage of a sale? From where I'm standing it looks like a huge rip-off to the benefit of the advertiser. If you're paying attention to what's happening, you might think different.

QUESTIONS ???   Is the media lying to us?   Is there something we're missing in all the hype surrounding Caitlyn Jenner? I've been trying to get some facts, but of all the media coverage there are no facts????  Only tens-of-thousands-of-words pouring out from a wound that will not heal.    Seriously, is anyone else getting as sick of hearing about  Caitlyn Jenner as I am?

Lots of world news in the Safenetting site this week, and the hacker/malware problem is no longer our problem it's now the world's problem as the axis of evil discovers how stupid people are when it comes to digital security. The biggest surprise is the 800 lb. gorilla, who refuses security and ...

What if you enlist the talents of world-class graphic designers with the Hellman-Hammett program for aiding writers to address some of the toughest human rights issues around the world in a magazine? HUMAN is the publication, and this issue is designed by Milton Glaser and Walter Bernard!

Watch OUT . . . I went to the organization tracking Cecil that Jimmy mentioned -- was going to make a contribution in Cecil's honor... but the site appears to be down.  Too many people going there.     I won't mention the URL. You'll have to watch the video.

Always liked this video of Gabby Haze . . . but then Apple came along and screwed up iMovie . . . so I don't make movies much any more.  :-(

Pretty amazing we've now posted more than 90 Facebook updates! Now they're saying that Facebook is rivaling Google's reach into people's lives and pockets, and everyone's delighted about it. I heard people bitching about NSA, but then Facebook made 43 BILLION from YOUR personal info?

Don't know if anyone saw this, but over the years I've been asked hundreds of times:  "How much should I charge"  . . . so is it better to repost here, or just put in the link?  https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-much-should-i-charge-fred-showker?trk=hp-feed-article-title
Over nearly 40 years in the graphic design business, and close to 15 of those years teaching design seminars around the country, I must have gotten that question a hundred times.  "How much should I charge?"And the online scene, in Google, LinkedIN, Facebook, Yahoo, and a thousand other "design" forums and articles there is a mountain of misinformation being spewed by amateurs, newbies and others.  In one Linkedin group I could not believe I was ...

If you found this place looking for campgrounds then you've been fooled. I've been trying to find RV overnight accommodations around this area, and they are the TOP of the list uner "RV Camping" . . . they do not have overnight... they're a DEALER.

If you found this place in a search for "RV Camping" or "RV Overnight" then it's search engine seeding, they have nothing to do with accommodations for RVs.
