Not all your website traffic is created equally. Some kinds of traffic are of much higher quality than others. High quality traffic buys things off your site and is what makes you money. Low quality traffic leaves after only a few seconds.
I just love this article because they talk about how bloggers are making SO much more money now than they ever did before.
If you run your own blog then this is GREAT news for you.
Basically big companies are realizing that Bloggers have a great relationship with their readers. Compared to other advertising we are dirt cheap too.
If you like Fashion then you are in luck. those seem to be the ones really cashing in.
Check out the article here:
NOT too many years ago, blogging was almost a dirty word. A place where myriad voices uploaded their unedited opinions to the chagrin of established writers.
But fast forward to today and blogging is booming, it’s big business and no more so than in the world of fashion.
Successful bloggers are garnering hundreds of thousands of followers and commanding huge readership – and respect – all while becoming celebrities in their own right.
While making money as a blogger has always been a challenge, it’s certainly getting easier.
And agencies such as The Ministry of Talent and Chic Blogger Management are popping up wholly and solely to manage relationships between brands and bloggers.
Maximillian Arasin who runs Chic Blogger Management – an agency that connects brands with his blogging clients – says brands are increasingly wanting to work with bloggers because of their close relationship with viewers and followers.
“This audience (blogging audience) is more valuable than for example pedestrians passing by a billboard advertisement,” Arasin told news.com.au.
“Collaborating with a blogger is an investment in ‘word of mouth recommendation’ for brands. They are looking for bloggers that match their understanding of aesthetics and deliver a message to a target audience. The brand wants to make a noise and incorporate commercial content into non commercial settings.”

Google glass is an amazing product. One that I think will change computing forever. Just like the iPhone did.
Google just released an etiquette guide on how to use their new product.
The big takeaway I got from it was to not be a GlassHole (just kidding). But they are pretty insightful.
Look. Google glass is a new technology. We will all have to adjust to the do’s and dont’s of using them.
I just can’t wait to get my first pair.
Here is where you can learn more about the new Google Glass etiquette:
There are a lot of potentially creepy aspects of Google Glass. Someone who’s wearing it can be taking photos or videos at any time and could be stalking you on Facebook while you’re talking to them. But Google wants Glass to have a positive image, so the company has released an etiquette guide with some “collective wisdom” from some early Explorers. And apparently common sense is not common sense to Glass-wearers.
Google suggests that users take off their Glass before doing “high-impact sports” like “cage fighting.” This seems like something people should be able to reason out on their own, but it’s kind of important to bring up because America’s Funniest Home Videos taught us long before the Internet that people will take recording devices into really dangerous situations for no particular reason.
But Google also points out that you shouldn’t wear Glass unless you want to deal with people freaking out about the fact that you’re wearing Glass. This heads-up seems a bit odd, because half of the appeal of Glass at the moment is being an early adopter of a radically new technology. As Google readily admits in this guide, Glass is “at the start of a long journey,” meaning it’s not that great yet in terms of performance. The whole point is to work out the kinks while enjoying a little bit of celebrity status.
