I obviously spend too much time on the 'net
Anyone know what this is supposed to be:
They sell words? I think - not sure, but it was too weird to ignore.
[It would only make sense if the word you selected was hyperlinked to the site you're promoting.
like yoga linked to http://yogini.shopinblog.com
I clicked on the word cufflinks on the page and it took me to a store.
As I recall a college student sold one million pixels on a page for one dollar a pixel. Needless to say he made one million dollars.
This is the same concept. The idea being you buy the link from his website and it's counted as a one way link, hence increase your sites search engine position.
Trouble with this site is it carries no page rank so the paid link would be next to useless, at this stage, until it gets pr.
Million dollar pixel also, as I recall, received a very high page rank and being a new concept created a lot of interest, hence a lot of incoming links.
It looks to me like you buy the use of a word on their site, e.g. dog and link that word to your site e.g. dogtraining.com (made the site up).
Then if someone looks up the word dog they get a link to your website.
It looks like it's in it's infancy.
That's probably Sajacs website from one of those stupid gameshows ...I can't remember the name of the show...I just thought of it Wheel of fortune.
I'd like to buy a vowel at the low low cost of... Where on earth did you find that retarded site Mark? Soon the internet will try to sell our thoughtwaves too. Greetings Zsuzsy
LOL - The guy who's site that is left a comment on one of my blogs. I usually pay a visit and return the compliment, but I couldn't work out what this one was all about and thought you all might like a laugh or enlighten me.
Buying words is about as dumb as buying free water....
hey wait a second...
That's what I was wondering. This is the strangest idea I have come across if what About-the-home is right. i.e. that they are selling words that will link to your site.
I played with it and the "parent" site for a while, and it seems you are just buying the link. Each word links to the website that owns the word. Very strange.
The "parent" site has sold a lot more words.
Well, for what it's worth, it doesn't even have a google page ranking yet. Probably not a good source if one is looking for incoming links that add value on google.
LOL - It's most odd. Far as I can tell, google has an aversion to paid links anyway, so I guess they are banking on all those people who have been reading "Internet marketing gurus" advice to go out and buy links.
My mouth was wide open when I saw this. Still doesn't make sense to me. LOL!
LOL - I still don't get it either, although I think Peter has the right idea - $5 a word anyone ?
Why buy a word, when you can buy a country?
Yeah, it's bad enough that people would consider buying a word, but buying a country? Purchasing the U.S. was (at time I checked) "only" $500! In other words, you're paying $500 for a single, one way link and not much more. You're probably better of just buying the phrase "United States" (or maybe the word "America") for a couple bucks!
LOL - Love it. They have only sold 4 countries in 2 years, so I guess that one didn't fly quite the way they had hoped for.
Personally, I never click on anything that has the word virus, viral or any possible conjugate of said embedded within. Hope you guys all have good anti-virus software.
I have a mac. And am feeling extremely superior LOL
Which of course, means the first major mac viruses are on the way.
But, in my little blogging world, viral is a good thing.
Looks to me like you are better off keeping away from the whole thing LOL
I just found this thread and opened the site up. The only thing I need to buy now is a set of new eyes! Anyone got a set of baby blues on the market? LOL BLINDING!

Regarding niche sites, at the moment, all we really know from looking on the My Account page is if a hub is featured or not. It would be useful to know *where* the hub is featured (Soapboxie, Owlcation, HubPages, PairedLife etc.). At the moment there is no way of knowing without...

Was looking for new sources of backlinks (as you do), and decided to explore Excerptz this evening. Only to find a sad blog post from Ryan saying that his site took a hit:http://excerptz.com/2011/06/18/excerptz … sandboxed/He thinks he's been sandboxed - but look at the date of his post -...

Due to a massive decline in Adsense revenues at my main business site and a healthy uptick of HPads revenue here at Hubpages, it looks like December may very well be a historical first for me: HP revenue just might surpass that other site.The first six days are no contest: a few pennies...
