Will You See The Google’s Green Comet?
For those of you keeping track of the Google indexing fun, you might be aware of the rumblings related to a big update the past couple of days. The green streak that flashes across our browser is set to make another appearance any day now and although seostronomers predict it happens every 3 months now, no one has been able to spot the little green devil to say for sure. It’s obvious something is happening out in the star filled cyberspace because the typically stable results have been bouncing all over the place causing storms of black holes sucking websites into deep, deep cyberspace where no one will ever be able to find them.
For one to really understand the math behind the madness of predicting the green comet and the realigning of the stars, you must be able to track it’s history with precise measurements and details, or better yet, know of a seostronomer that provides it for you. There are only a few known, but the one referenced is really all you need to track this amazing phenomenon.
If and when this green streak passes through your browser and lands on your website, the amount of green that does not get burned up while entering your browsersphere will determine how famous you will become over the next few months. If the green comet makes it through your browsersphere and your websitosphere with very little damage, you are said to have great luck and wealth for the next three months, or at least until the next sitting of this beast. For those who see the green flash of light burn up through their two sphere’s to end up nothing but white or grey matter, or just a tad bit of it’s tail left, you are said to have tough luck and struggle the next few months, or until the next sitting where your luck could turn around quickly.
What will your next few months be like?
To PageRank or not to PageRank
For those familiar with the latest craze brought on by the Google gods, you know that PageRank is something every webmaster feels he or she must have. Some stand strong by the necessity of it while others feel it’s nothing but a visual eye candy on the Google Toolbar. So what is the truth to this madness? What are the benefits to having a high PageRank? What, if any, are the disadvantages of having a great PageRank? Well, hopefully I can help explain and/or make some sense of it’s existence.
When Google first began using their fancy ranking system of a particular webpage, webmasters began to take notice of it and the importance of having a high ranking. Initially, having a high ranking meant having a high listing in the search results. So word spread rapidly and the madness began with everyone trying to figure out how to get their listing ranked higher than their competitors. People began to notice high ranked sites that link to other sites seemed to pass ranking down through simple text links. This led to link swapping and link buying. Matter of fact, there are several link brokers whose sole purpose is to sell you high PageRank links. If you are doing this, please continue to read.
This has been a topic with many advertisers and I always pose this suggestion:
“Give me any key phrase and I will show you at least 10 listings that have a lower PageRank and appear higher in the results than at least 10 listings that have an extremely high PageRank.”
PageRank is merely an indication of how often your site will be checked for new material. It most certainly factors into the search results, but having a high PageRank is no guarantee you will be listed in the top. So spending hundreds of dollars a month on high PR sites is a complete waste of money in my opinion. Not to mention it is not something the Googleoids like to see.
The Benefits of Having a High PageRank?
Benefits do exist with a high PR, but in the world of business, it shouldn’t be a concern for most webmasters. There may be other benefits not listed, but these are the most obvious:
1. When Google Toolbar users visit your site, they see lots of green in your PR rank. This can offer some assurance to customers that your website/service is worthy of a high ranking.
2. It assures you that the Googlebot will constantly be checking your site for new or changed content. If you add new information on a daily basis, this will help the new information be available in searches much faster. News sites would greatly benefit.
3. It can also make your website real estate value increase quite a bit. In other words, those who have a high PR can easily begin selling text links on their website and make a nice monthly income from it. As I said earlier, the majority of webmasters buy strictly on the PageRank because they still believe it will help their results listing.
As you can see, there are a few advantages to having a high PR, but not too many. If you are selling a good or service, PageRank should be the least of your worries, bringing new customers should top your priority list.
Disadvantages of Having a High PageRank
While there are not really any disadvantages, you could consider the fact of many webmasters bugging you for a link to their site. With the new software programs that sniff out high PR sites, it has created a whirlwind of webmasters emailing the owners of these sites begging for a link swap. These requests can get pretty annoying at times.
To summarize the purpose of this entry, the point to take from it is PageRank is not something you should waste your money on, unless one of the few things listed above apply to you. Just let your PageRank come naturally and buy text links from partner listings based on their content and other natural stats. Make your website popular for all search engines.
The New LinkWorth Toolbar

The goal was to create a simple tool that you can install with no hidden program installs or no hidden spyware or adware like most other toolbar creators tend to push on everyone.

Credit options for a Mortgage
Checking your credit score will help you determine your financing options; lenders use it to set your loan pricing and see if you’re able to repay your mortgage. Also, when you’re eligible for an auto loan, credit scoring models will look at your credit report to determine whether you’re an excellent risk for credit damage, and a lender may refuse to extend you the loan if they find out that you’re a credit risk. Also, if you want to apply for car finance in Perth, you need to click here and get more details on the same.
Some banks, including Ally, Nela, SunTrust, SunTrust, Nationwide, PNC and Wells Fargo use the FICO Credit Score for their credit applications. Some state offices also use the FICO credit score, although not all states have the same model.
When you apply for a mortgage, a lender will also look at your credit report. Many lenders will use the FICO Credit Score in conjunction with the historical payment history from your credit report to calculate your risk score, which can help them decide whether you are a good risk for credit damage.
In order for your credit score to rise, you need to make steady, qualified, and timely payments to your mortgage lender and you can get more data on how this work in sites . Your Mortgage consultants WA will set up a process for this and other requirements (see below for the details).
When will my credit score change?
The most accurate, current, and trustworthy information is contained in your credit report. The first time a lender looks at your credit report, they will not see your information but will be looking at your account history. If they see that you’re having trouble paying your mortgage payments, or are trying to access more credit, that should raise red flags. If you’re having trouble making payments on your mortgage and are having trouble paying your other bills as well, you should get more detailed information about your credit situation and address these issues as soon as possible.
Is my credit report accurate and up-to-date?
Everyone’s credit report will be accurate and up-to-date, but you may not know about any major mistakes or errors until its too late and the damage is already done.
You don’t have to worry that your credit report will be accurate and up-to-date at all, because the information in it is protected. The Experian Credit Report Guarantee ensures that no agency can take your credit report (or information contained in it) and use it to issue credit, or offer credit to you. Experian Credit Report Guarantee details on how to file a dispute about your Experian Credit Report.
Should I keep my credit report updated?
A credit score is calculated based on your credit reports, which include any information that has not been filed. That’s why you should keep your credit reports up-to-date in the normal course of business.
How often should I check my credit score?
The first time a lender checks your credit report, you don’t need to worry. They do not run a credit check, just check your report for inaccuracies and record that information for future reference. If they find you to be an excellent risk for credit damage and refuse to loan you the mortgage, they wont run a credit check. The decision to run a credit check is up to them.
The LinkWorth Affiliate Program
To become an affiliate for LinkWorth, one should create a new partner account. Once the account is created, you instantly receive a unique affiliate id. If you choose to be an affiliate and do not wish to sell links on your site, you can simply take your listing offline once your account is a approved.
Our affiliate program is one that we felt should be rewarding enough to keep people interested. Paying someone for an advertiser referral with just a one time small fee wasn’t enough. So putting myself into the shoes of an affiliate, I felt the thing that would make me most happy was to earn money not only on the referral, but to earn money on the money spent by the referral. If an affiliate refers a client that spends twenty five thousand per month, I would love to earn a commission on that money. After all, I did send the customer.
All affiliates who send a new “ADVERTISER” referral, will earn $10 just for the advertiser signing up. Then, for the life of the customer’s account, the affiliate will earn 5% of all renewal transactions. The only thing we do not pay for is the first time a link is purchased and the reason for this is because some links are purchased with one day left in the month, so the price may be less than one dollar. We felt earning a commission on the renewals would pay the affiliate much better in the long run and as time goes on and an affiliate refers more and more advertisers, the monthly renewal portions paid will be a great steady payout.
At this particular time, we do not pay for partner referrals. This is something many of you have asked about and our reply to all of you has been we are looking for the best possible solution and want to reward for partner referrals. While the majority of people in this world are good people, there are the few that find ways to beat the system, so we have to ensure our protection against anything like this. We have too many scenarios that leave us wide open for this, so we are discussing many options to try and find the best solution. So hang in there, we WILL find a solution, and soon.
Affiliate payments are included each month with regular partner payouts. The amount is indicated on the invoice you can print from within your account. Affiliate stats, which show all earnings, are available in your account affiliate section.
Ways to promote LinkWorth are endless. We have provided a few tools/images/text you can use that contain your unique affiliate id. One of the more popular methods of referring new advertisers is by using our STATS LINK TOOL, or also known as the BUY DIRECT TOOL. This is a small text box which can be placed anywhere on the affiliate’s website offering to sell links on their site. It links potential link buyers directly to a LinkWorth page which shows all of the stats for that affiliates website. This helps convert a potential advertiser to purchase a link on your site. They can click the buy a link button and instantly purchase a link from you.
Partner Payouts – “Where is my money?”
The single most asked question here at LinkWorth, which is a great question…”Where is my money?”. Any partner account that has text links placed on their site wants to make sure they receive their money each month. Well, hopefully we will do a good job of providing the answers to everyone’s question about partner payouts so this question will not come up as much. Of course there may be issues that arise, and we definitely do not mind answering the question, but it might save the partners the time to ask us the question. Or even get upset because they did not understand our policies. So here is the nuts and bolts of partner payouts, which can also be found here:
Terms of all deals are set as month to month commencing on the 1st day of each month. The initial creation of any deal will be for the remainder of the current month created, then the deal will renew automatically on the 1st of the next calendar month. Terms can never be changed or altered.
Payments are made on the 5th day of each month, or the first business day thereafter if the 5th falls on a holiday or weekend. All money paid is for transactions that occurred prior to the current month you are being paid on. So if the payment is made on January 5th, it will be for all money earned before January 1. Payments are made how you request them to be paid. To find optional methods of being paid, login to your account and visit the ACCT INFO >> PAYMENTS section for more information.
Renewals happen on the 1st of each month. All deals automatically renew each and every month unless the advertiser or partner cancels. Renewals that happen on the 1st of January will not be paid to the partner until the 1st of February. All payments are held until the term being paid is over. This gives advertisers the insurance their link remains for the time paid. Renewals are always for your full price agreed to upon the deal creation. Renewals can never be changed in price.
Amounts can always vary when a deal is initially created. As stated in the terms section, when a deal is first created, it is for the remainder of the current month, which will provide a prorated dollar amount for the first month. If a price is set for $100 per month, an advertiser buys a link from your site on the 15th of the month, the deal is for the remaining 15 days of the current month and the total amount paid initially would be $50.00. This will cover the remaining 15 days of the month and the deal will auto-renew for the full $100 on the 1st of the next month. In this situation, partners will be paid the prorated amount on the next month’s payout, as long as the minimum payout has been met.
Amounts of payouts will consist of all transactions accumulated prior to the current month being paid, less 30% retained by LinkWorth for use of our system. It will also consist of any affiliate referral payments and affiliate recurring commissions from referrals. If you have used any of your unpaid money to become a featured partner listing, this will be deducted from your payout and noted on your invoice. If you have a combo account and converted any of your unpaid money into advertising dollars, this will also be deducted from your payout amount. So the shortened equation of your payout amount is:
Links Sold (-) 30% (+) Affiliates (+) Affiliate Recurring (-) Featured Listing (-) Converted Ad Dollars
(=) TOTAL PAYOUT
Minimum payout refers to the dollar amount a partner must meet before payment is made. The default, and lowest possible minimum payout is $25.00 USD. When invoices are created, if the amount owed has not met the minimum payout, it will remain unpaid money in that partner’s account until the next payout of the following month. Minimum payouts can be set up to $250 if desired.
Invoices will be created if payment is made each month. The invoices are available in your account by browsing to ACCT INFO >> PAYOUTS. These invoices and payout listings will detail what each refers to. Each invoice with a link to view can be easily printed for your records if needed. No paper invoices will be sent with payments any longer since this information can be attained easily from within your account.
Now that you have your payments, the first thing you can think of is that you are going to spend it, right? Better try to save a little and take out life insurance. There are even providers that give you a life insurance with free gift, consult and you can see it clearly. protect your family from any fatality that may happen to you.
Link Price Quote Tool
We are happy to annouce our newest tool built for partners. The biggest reason for a new website listing to be declined is pricing. If the price set is not competitive, as stated in the partner guidelines, we are not going to approve it. We want to help you sell links and in order for this to happen, your pricing is one of the most important factors. Since this is a common problem, we have built a pricing tool will generate an average price range for any website.
To use the tool it is very easy. Login to your Partner account, click on the TOOLS menu option, then click on the sub menu option LINK PRICE. On this page, enter your domain as www.yoursite.com, then press the “GET QUOTE” button. It will display the stats gathered and used to determine the price and it will give a price range for each link location.
This tool is currently in beta mode. We are still testing the mathematical equations involved, but for the most part, it’s pretty accurate. The prices given are based on fair market prices within LinkWorth. We are still working to ensure it is as accurate as possible, but as it stands now, we strongly suggest partners to use this tool when determining their prices.
Here is an example print out of the tool:
|Home Page Price:
|$ 80.00 To $ 100.00
|Sub Page Price:
|$ 50.00 To $ 60.00
|Entire SiteRun Price:
|$ 125.00 To $ 150.00

What is the point of LinkWorth?
One thing we have discovered in seeking new advertisers is almost everyone has been burned one time or another by “SEO” companies that promise the world and never deliver. Sure there are some great SEO companies out there, however, it seems like anyone that can build a website seems to think they can also be an SEO expert. Read a couple SEO related website forums and “whammo”, they are experts. Then throw in the fact most online advertisers do not know too much about this field and you have an easy target. The so-called SEO expert throws some technical terms out the advertiser has never heard and they take the bait. So due to this common occurrence, most visitors are very reluctant to give LinkWorth a shot. Hopefully this will give some trust in the services offered here at LinkWorth.
When marketing your website, the obvious tasks are to bring potential customers to your website, then make the sale. While it sounds fairly simple, the bringing new customers to your site can be a difficult task. There are many different forms of advertising online, but many are very expensive and turn up zero conversions, so LinkWorth is a very affordable method that ultimately brings free traffic to your website.
Search engines rank a website by many factors, onsite and offsite. The two most important are:
LinkWorth tackles these two factors with an emphasis on the Link Popularity. To build your link popularity, you must create partnerships with other similar, or relevant websites and have a text link advertisement on their website, linking to your website. The more you accumulate, the higher your popularity becomes. The 1-2 punch is attracting similar visitors from their site to your site and building your popularity which helps to push your listing north in the search engines.
In order to accomplish this, advertisers need webmasters that wish to participate and sell space on their website. The LinkWorth system is a grand meeting ground for webmasters that want to advertise and webmasters that offer advertising. It simplifies the entire process and also allows both sides to have a neutral party involved. Our system monitors all ads on a daily basis so advertisers no longer have to.
So the “point of LinkWorth” is very simple. It offers a solution for both types of webmasters. If you have a website, then LinkWorth is for you. If you want to promote your site, our system helps build your link popularity and push your listing to the top. If you want to earn money by selling ads on your site, our system sends the advertisers to you. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
