Big Update to LinkWorth System

rawrLast night we made a pretty sizable update to our system that is significant enough to let you guys know about. Up until last night, we’ve considered listings as “sites” or “blogs”. Blogs were setup more for LinkPost where the rest of our products were geared towards a regular “site”. With the majority of sites being a blog these days, it was more of a headache than anything else, so I say with great pleasure, it’s all one listing now!

You no longer have to submit your blog as an entirely separate listing! (insert crowd raawr!) If you had a blog listing previously, no worries, we’ve merged everything over to the “site” side of things and this is how you list everything now. There’s no more managing your blogs or anything else that used to come with the blog listings, it’s all been merged with your normal site listing.

As we’re testing and really getting a good live run-through today, we’re on the hunt for any bugs or problems that we might have missed during testing, so if you see something, PLEASE click the “FEEDBACK” icon in your lower right-hand corner and let us know. Include errors or pages, as much detail as possible so we can quickly jump into action.

This is one small part of several big improvements we have on the list. Soon, our control center will be as simple as pie…something we’ve “ALL” wished for, for a long time.

We Have Power – Woohoo

Apparently the cause of our entire office building being down yesterday was due to a pesky rat! It evidently chewed through a main power cable and not only ended its life, but ended the power for an entire work day for us.

The good thing is, they fixed the problem yesterday afternoon and everyone is back to work today. We apologize for any inconvenience us not being in the office might have caused. LinkWorth.com was not affected by this outage, thankfully.

Power Outage Update

The LinkWorth corporate offices are currently without power. I’ve been told we may be down all day, but that has yet to be confirmed by the electric company. We will update you when we get more information and we appreciate your patience.

Fun At The LinkWorth Office

Office Pranks are usually our fun around the LinkWorth office. Whether it’s sounding our large air horn to startle people when they least expect it, filling up cubicles with whatever we can find, or one of our favorites…scaring Jeffrey Marek, aka “Operation Scarek”.

We’ve tried about every place we can find to hide and scare Marek, until today, when I realized we haven’t tried a certain spot. After talking to Matt, he chose to execute Operation Scarek and I decided to record it. Here’s a little peek into the LinkWorth fun at the office…

Advertisers – Let Us Do The Work

If you’re a current LinkWorth advertiser, or a potential advertising client, why would you want to spend all of your time managing your campaigns? Let LinkWorth Account Managers manage your campaigns for you!

You might have already noticed the new feature that’s now available in all Advertiser accounts. It’s the new “Account Manager” tab located on the top right side of your Control Center, as illustrated below:

Once you click this menu option, it will take you to the new page that allows you to convert your Advertiser account to a “managed” account:

You’ll also have access to your Account Manager’s contact information:

There are also additional tools that will be available to help you communicate with your Account Manager, request proposals and other features.

Advertisers will now always have an Account Manager at their fingertips when they need them. Once you convert your account, a message is sent to them and they will get in touch with you as soon as possible. Our staff is here to help however you see fit and we look forward to helping.

Update Complete – Issues Resolved

We’ve completed the update that was causing our database issues and it appears everything is working as usual now.

If you spot something out of the ordinary, please let us know.

Happy New Year!!

While this is a few days behind, we wanted to make sure and wish everyone a very happy New Year and we look forward to a very prosperous 2010.

2009 was another record breaking year for us, along with the amount of money we paid out to you guys, so we’re going to keep working hard to keep the awesome ride going.

Make Money With WordPress MU

Do you have a WordPress MU setup and you’re looking how to make money network wide? The LinkWorth WordPress plugin makes the process super easy. Offer the entire suite of LinkWorth products through your MU network and manage it all from one location.

Our WordPress plugin was recently updated to work for MU installations of WordPress. Running a MU network can get extremely pricey if your number of users grow and why not have a plugin that helps you monetize your network? No one will want to pay for a MU blog, so that leaves you with figuring out how to make money with your free blogs. LinkWorth is the answer!

If you are currently a customer and have used our plugin, it’s the same plugin you would use for MU. The same plugin works for regular installations and MU installations. If your network is really large with thousands of existing users, we can help you get it setup and rolling. Just contact us: admin at linkworth, mention you want to get help setting up the plugin for MU and we’ll take it from there.
