Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week. This week, I stumbled upon a site called “Gentlemint“, supposedly, as many having been saying, that it is a “male” version of Pinterest. Right now, I can’t say much about it as I have not yet had the pleasure of being invited (yep, it is also by invite only). If any of you is already using it, I would love to hear your opinion about the site. On my side, I will certainly be keeping a close on how things develop over there ;-).
On a side note, and if you are a Google AdSense publisher, you should know that Google has finally created a whole new Ad Traffic Quality Resource Center, where you can get informed about how to avoid being banned from their program as well as having a better understanding of invalid clicks and click frauds, among other things.
Finally, instead of the usual Matt Cutts video, I am making way for Duane Forrester, Matt’s counterpart from Bing, which exemplifies in a very simple way, how to become an authority, by building quality content (sites) and sharing it properly. Its short, so I recommend you watching it. This is not for Bing only.
