Sometimes things go completely wrong and as always there is no one but myself to blame.
I have been an internet marketer for more than 10 years now. My second website was Businesshout.com. Google has always favored older sites and domains that are registered for several years. That was the reason I bought the domain for 10 years. By the way… it is still good advice to buy domains for more than 1 year. You can get some favor in your rankings.
The problem was that I used a yahoo email address when I bought the domain and I registered the domain with GWO which I left many years ago. I have used Namecheap now for several years and they are good.
The other problem was simply that I was completely sure that I had bought the domain in December 10 years ago.
I was wrong. The domain expired and the registrar wanted $100 to get it back to me. During the 10 years I have used the domain for a lot of different things and I don’t think it was really popular in Google’s eyes anymore.
So I decided not to pay the fee to GWO and start the ErikAstrand.com site instead. That has been in my mind for several years but as long as I had Businesshout I didn’t want another site to update.
What is the purpose of this site then?
I have studied and learned a lot under my 10+ internet years and I want to share that information with you. I believe in giving and my plan is to help as many as possible to make a living with the help of internet.
There will be affiliate links in my emails and on the site and I think you understand that they are a part of supporting this site and the time I set aside to help you and other marketers to succeed.
If you buy from my links I am here to help you when you need and you can also get additional tips about how to use the program or software you have bought.
Who knows…maybe the stupid mistake can develop to something much better and in that case it isn’t stupid anymore. J
