    Hi all,

    I'll go straight to the point:

    I'm giving away 1 PR3 lens, and at least 2 Scribd.com documents already indexed by Google, Yahoo and MSN. They're all on the same product and right now they're receiving about 50+ uv a day among the three ( the lens has the more traffic by far ). They're all optimized for buying KWs for the product, so conversions are pretty good. In fact, the lens has been on the first page of Google for the last 6 months for KWs as " buy widget ". The lens alone was making me around $300/month till November and about $700 in december.

    I may be adding a few extra documents with the Scribd account, but I don't know yet. I understand lenses can be transfered from one person to another.


    What's the catch?

    I was using Shoppingads links for on page monetization and was recently told by management EPN is not allowing it ( they're not allowing links on lenses, as they don't allow them on CL ). Believe it or not, I didn't know ( got paid anyway ). Anyways, you'll have to find an alternative way to monetize it ( not necessarily change SA, but you can't send people directly from the lens to Ebay unless you use ebay banners provided by Squidoo or sth ).

    The Pros

    This is an electronic gadget that's been updated a few days ago, so traffic is on the rise. You may want to further optimize these pages for the new version of the gadget ( I most certainly would ), but it's all very simple stuff.

    Requirements

    - Applicants should NOT be Jr VIPs or above.

    - Should have over 30 quality posts as of today

    - Must have been part of the forum for at least a month

    - Thanks are irrelevant. I will take a look at applicants' posts myself.

    - I can't tell you what to do with your pages, but I'll give preference to those who at least have an interest in White Hat. I know it's pretty difficult to prove, but that's partly what your posts are for.

    - I'll give preference to people who have taken action in the past. Again, that's what your posts are for. Also, I've been a member of BHW for a while.

    - I'll give preference to those who REALLY need it.

    All those who are interested in this, please post on this thread saying so and asking anything you consider pertinent.

    Mods: Don't really know what rules apply for this sort of thread. If you're interested, I can PM you the URLs for these pages.

    I will be picking one person some time tomorrow.

    Hope to hear from many of you.

    The best to all.

    I'd be very interested. I'm currently engaged in about 70% BH, 30% WH. I run a lot of CPA offers, as well as EPN for my BH work, but on the WH side I'm working on getting a few sites naturally listed through various methods, but my WH abilities are far fewer than my BH ones. As you can see, I'm not a Jr. VIP or anyone special, but I'm very dedicated, I try to help out in areas that I have knowledge on, and I'd be grateful to have this extra boost to my WH work.

    Thank you for the opportunity!

    Thank you for your interest, omnipotentq.

    Two more things:

    1- Just sent the URLs for these pages to Profecker so that he can check them out.

    2- One more Requirement, sorry:

    You should be willing to start a thread at some point describing at least some of your experiences with these page, what you did ,what your results were, etc. It's not necessary that you give away everything, just make a useful post based on your experience.

    I'll take your word on this one. I believe it's time we slowly start expecting the best from each other here in BHW.

    omnipotentq: Please, tell me if you're still interested with this new requirement. You can PM on this if you want.

    Thanks

    IMATA, I know I already PMed you about this, but I just wanted to publicly state that I'm more than happy to share my experience and what I've done with the sites if you decide upon me.

    Thanks again!

    Nope.

    I was thinking about doing sth. IM related not long ago, but not anymore. I'm currently focusing on sth completely different. I'm trying to shift what I do online into sth I find meaningful. Knows it may sound like crap, but it's true.

    Right now, I'm only keeping enough of my assets to make a living ( I already have other incomes as well ) and giving away the rest to people who need it. Just trying to do it in a way that helps and motivates people to take action and work on their own, too.

    Thanks for your post.

    Well I need something to kick me for making the first step into this IM thing :) Not sure what that kick is yet,I'm still at studying SEO books.

    OK, can't say I REALLY need it. Because atm I'm not sure what I'm getting from this, BUT reading many of your posts IMATA, especially the ones in r00t's autobloging experience, those and the other WH posts of yours made me to think you know what your business is, so I applied for your upcoming WH "coaching" place too, you know the 10bucks one, BTW what happened with that anyways?

    So I'm not sure, but if comes from a clever guy, I'm up for it. Put me on the list if you care too.

    @Thomas First, thanks for your interest and your kind words.

    If you have been reading r00t's post, you can probably make good use of this, as this was the first product I went for using "article marketing", so to speak ! I started working with this product about a year ago with only 1 video ( the one appearing on the lens ) and then it became sort of my "experiment lab". Every time I wanted to check sth new, I tried it there first. So, it's not the best example of what I do, but it's very good to study part of the process if you feel like it.

    Here's the link to r00t's thread, for those who don't know what we're talking about:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e/50802-1-article-online-5-hours-90-made.html

    Regarding the coaching site, I can't really get into that as the thread was deleted by mods ( rightfully so, according to the rules ). I hated leaving you guys hanging, though. I'll take this oportunity to say sorry to all of you. I'll try to help as much as I can from within BHW, as right now I've decided to focus on a completely different project.

    @Flash: Ok buddy. You're in.

    Thanks both for your interest.

    You're in, mate.

    Just read again the part where it says you should be changing the way it's monetized somehow to keep it strictly White Hat.

    I'll be making my decision shortly.

    I think you've helped me enough on my article marketer "career", and so I guess it may be a long shot, but I'm always interested in working in different niches to add a new stream of revenue. I do primarly Whitehat marketing, around 99.5% maybe =p

    Even if you don't choose me, I'll have to thank you for this opportunity. Not many would be willing to giveaway their work, even if they move to different ventures!

    Good luck on them IMATA, you deserve it :)

    Ya I've read through that part already - I just mean that it'll be interesting to see how someone else has been monetizing a squidoo lens so well, all whitehat too.

    @r00t: You're always welcome.:) Thanks for your kind words.

    @hydroflame7: Great. Just don't want anyone to feel cheated.

    You're both in.

    Hi,

    I need it and sincerely will use it.

    I am more into grey hat, and mostly SEO optimizing. Don't do much else as I test a lot, make sites and test how links are affecting the results.

    If you want, I can PM you about some white hat sites I have, you can search their whois, as they are mine.

    I would also use the income generated by the lens very well, as where I live (eastern europe) an income like that would let me concentrate on other things.

    To be honest, I would definitely use it, but I am not in an emergency, so if you look for somebody who desperately needs the money, then do not choose me. I make little income nowadays (used to make a lot more), but I still have savings and I do not need too much $$ to live.

    All in all, a great gesture, and I read your sig, and I think that I will contact you after you choose a winner anyway with some ideas.
