Little Feature Added to LinkPost
We’ve added a new feature to our LinkPost and LinkPost Jobs that many will find extremely beneficial. It’s called “Pre-Written Content” and in a nutshell, Advertisers create the content for the LinkPost they purchase and Partners use this content to create a new post on their blog.
One of the most complained about items when it comes to LinkPost and LinkPost Jobs, is the actual content produced in the post. While there are many that do a wonderful job at writing original content, there are also many that just don’t quite meet the Advertiser’s standard.
Due to this reason and suggestions from clients, we have implemented a new feature called “Pre-Written Content”. Think of a LinkBB and a LinkPost combination; the Advertiser creates the content and the Partner publishes it. The Advertiser gets a perfect post they are 100% satisfied with and the Partner gets a guest blogger making a new post on their blog and being paid for it. It’s “VERY” easy money for the Partner.
For Advertisers, we’ve added a new radio option as shown below that asks if the new outline will have pre-written content or not. If you select “Yes”, a new pre-written content text field will appear where you will put the content in. <HTML TAGS ARE ALLOWED!> The best recommendation would be to either format your post with some sort of editor that allows you to insert the html tags, then copy the content with tags over to the pre-written content field. You can also submit the content without tags if you choose to not use them. All paragraphs and line breaks will be recognized and carried over.
After you have completed the fields for the Outline and submitted, your outline will be saved and queued for review. Once your outline is approved, everything else will operate the same as before.
We definitely recommend making each pre-written LinkPost unique. The most effective practice would be to select the blogs you want to publish your LinkPost on. Learn the blog and how they speak to their audience. Then do your best to make your pre-written LinkPost blend in well with the bloggers other posts. You’ll need to create a new outline for each pre-written post.
Another recommendation is to go ahead and put the links in the content where you want it. This takes all of the work out of the Partner’s hands and you’re 99% certain it will be published exactly how you want it to be published.
LinkPost just became really easy for Partners when pre-written content is provided! The worst part, for most, is thinking of what to say about said site/product or keywords. Quite often, the content falls short of what the Advertisers are hoping to see, so this option helps both sides.
Partners will know when a pending LinkPost or a LinkPost job has pre-written content included. As you can see in the image below, you’ll see the yellow highlighted part that says “Use pre-written content as the blog post”. You’ll also see the content on the right side column.
Once you click “Approve”, it will direct you to the next screen that gives the publishing instructions.
On the Publish Instructions, you will see all of the usual items, but now if it includes the pre-written content, you’ll see it in the right-side column. All of the pre-written content will be inside the textarea box that will highlight with a single click, and then you can copy to your clipboard with a CTRL C (or right-click and choose Copy). Then go to your new blog post page and paste the content with a CTRL V (or right-click and choose Paste).
Note: when using copy/paste that has html tags in WordPress, you will need to switch your wordpress editor to the HTML version. Otherwise the special formatting will be lost. This is an illustration of the two editors offered.
If you would like to go over pre-written content before publishing, click the “Preview” link under the textarea box and it will open a new window showing the page formatted properly.
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…

Also make sure your minimum payout amount is what you wish. In the next section below it, you’ll need to add your Moneybookers email address.

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.
We’re in the process of pushing a really big update to our system and we’re currently experiencing some database issues. The issues are limiting our inventory to just a few pages of results.
We are working on resolving it and expect things to be corrected shortly. Apologies for any inconvenience this might be causing.
SES New York City 2010
It’s a new year and we have quite a few conferences lined up for 2010. Of course, there are the usual staples of each year, like PubCon in Vegas, but we’re switching things up a little this year. New places and maybe a few new shows we’ve never done. It’s not all set in stone, but I can tell you we will be attending SES NYC (Search Engine Strategies in New York City) on March 22-26. The expo hall will be the 23rd and 24th.
If you are in the area or want to attend this show, we have a discount coupon you can download and use for purchase online or at the show. If paying at the show, print it and take it with you. It’s a 20% discount off of a Conference Passport or 20% off of a 1 day pass. Incisive Media, who puts the show on, doesn’t give discounts on passes, other than early bird registration, so this is a pretty hip thing they do for their exhibitors, which we get to pass on to you.
If buying your pass, or passes online, the code you need is 20LINK. This will make all of your wildest dreams come true…if those dreams consist of getting a discounted pass to SES NYC 2010! Or you can click the PDF icon above to download the actual coupon to print or save and if you have any troubles with the format use this pdf converter.
We hope to see you in wonderful New York City.
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 online? 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. If a lucrative, non-time sucking side hustle is what you are seeking, then you need to look no further than fx trading at VT markets.
Unlike other custodians, the equity trusts company offers an online marketplace where you can easily identify investment alternatives that meet your needs.
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! And if you want to make a little money sharing online courses, WordPress and its various Learning Management Systems, make it easy. There’s an article on collectiveray that explains how you can build an eLearning website on WordPress LMS and spread your knowledge to a wider audience.
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.
