    that's such a bitch. I have sent emails with typoed links, some with http://http:// (double...DOH!) such a pain in the ass!! So now I just do a quick copy/paste of the link and make sure I didn't have a 'special' moment. I feel for ya man. Hopefully you didn't send too many out like that.

    Sleep deprivation is my mortal enemy. I am constantly either fading out, or even worse, if I'm in a comfortable chair, falling completely asleep at my laptop. No lie, one time I was doing manual email replies and I fell asleep while I was actually typing. I woke up and looked at the screen to see "blah blah blah CPA offer...I GOT ME A BIG OLE BUCK KNIFE"

    I was like WTF!?!?! I had been talking to my son about a knife earlier that day... The funniest thing is, I don't talk like that. I actually use proper grammar and don't typically use phrases like "I got me a..." LOL

    But the good point is if someone still makes it to your site, they must be desperate for your product since they have put some effort and manually fixed your link :)

    You don't need http:// to a web address.

    For example... copy and paste both of these in your address bar:

    Code:
    www.BlackHatWorld.com  (No http://)
    Code:
    BlackHatWorld.com  (No http:// or www. or http://www. at all...)
    So you see, if your server and domain are set up correctly most internet browsers (IE and Firefox included) automatically recognize http protocol being that they are already HTTP 1.1 compliant . www. is just a subdomain technically, for if you look in your root directory of your webserver, there is public_html and www folders. They are both identical, or should be.

    The use of such subdomain names is not required by any technical or policy standard and many web sites exist without a www subdomain prefix.

    The exception is if you are directing them to a SSL enhanced page, which then would require https:// or if you are directing them to a www2. or www3 page.

    That's not the point, he's e-mailing it. It won't be a live link if there is no http://

    Thanks RTJ for your idiotic comment. We all know that you can go to google.com or http://www.google.com but it's obviously worse if you forget the http:// in mailing or else he wouldn't make this thread.

    A part of the day??? :confused:

    Sometimes I work for hours and days ... get thousands of UV each day,
    and my profits = $5 or sometimes $0 ..

    As an IMer, don't stop. This is the rules, profits and losses, In money, time, efforts ... etc.:)

    put it down to a tough learning experience - if you dont learn from your mistakes give up now!

    trust me at least 5hrs minimum sleep should be scheduled into your working day! LOL the world wont stop and if you really feel that you must be working all day and night your not outsourcing enough...

    ive been there and done that and learnt the hard way too...

    hth

    thanks
