Wow! Just heard the news that you can manage Google AdWords on your phone now. The AdWords platform can be a bit cumbersome on my browser on a powerful PC. I’m curious to see how it does on the iphone, palm pre, and android. Watch the video below to see more on this. I’ll post a followup post after we’ve had time to test out on the different platforms.

Wow! Just saw GoDaddy deal for $15 per month for unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth, and unlimited domains. You could host hundreds of sites for $15 a month. I’ve seen some pretty good deals out there but this takes the cake. Oh wait, Host Gator is also one I’ve used and they have a similar plan for $8. I’ve been very happy with Host Gator, from reliability to support they’ve been great! Their plan comes with your own toll free number which includes 100 free minutes! Both the GoDaddy and Host Gator plan comes with a free SSL cert in case you need to have a certificate for ecommerce or other secure transactions. For a control panel I’d recommend cpanel which Host Gator provides. It’s much easier to use. The Go Daddy panel can be difficult and limited in what you can do. Both come loaded with plenty of software so you should be good to go. My favorite of course being WordPress, a great blogging platform! Both plans also come with a credit to Google Adwords in case you’d like to market your new site through pay per click advertising.  Host Gator seems to be a step ahead with this one as well by offering $50 while GoDaddy offers a $25 credit. GoDaddy makes up for this though with a $25 credit to facebook (sorry facebook! wordpress wouldn’t allow me for some reason to link to you). Host Gator offers a 45 day money back guarantee while GoDaddy does not, but both are cheap and you can go month to month. Drum roll please….. dndndndndnd And the winner for the affordable web hosting award goes to HOST GATOR!! Good job Host Gator!! They also provide green web hosting that are powered and cooled by wind power in the state of Texas!! They also have a fall special so signup before Nov 1st to receive 20% off your order. And I have no affiliation with them I swear! Just a happy web hoster!host gator green web hosting

I was just updating my profile on myspace and came across this banner. Wow! I wonder if it has a good click through rate (CTR). All I wanted to do was leave the page. It also looks like it was put together by someone with no graphic design experience. It looks like it actually might be done through Google AdWords since there’s a “sponsored” area at the top. Now that I think about this a little more it’s definately an ad that grabs your eye. It’s not sexy like you’d expect to see where a model is showing her flat stomach so maybe that’s what they were going for. I’d love to hear your comments if you stumble across this post.
