I would like to announce that I have created a new website called http://www.fairadsnetwork.com, you can give it a peek if you’d like.
That will be the official prelaunch page. As mentioned in my forum, I have many attempts to contact Google and make sure that I can even have their name in my domain name.
I posted a thread in Mike Filsaime’s BFM forum, he was also concerned about the trade mark, but he was definitely with me on starting this site. I’ve tried calling – no live support. I’ve emailed, still waiting for response. I faxed a permission request and told them what’s going on, so I’ll be waiting for a response from that as well. I’ve searched the web and looked through their trade mark guidelines and didn’t see anywhere saying I can’t use “google” in a domain name.
In fact, I found a lot of websites having “google” in their domain, so I know it shouldn’t be a problem. I’ll still continue trying to contact them. I know some of you may not support me on this and say AdSense is growing strong and alive, that’s fine, I am not telling you to convert, just think of it as an alternative and secondary source. Think of the publicity it will get when you later see “Ads NOT by Google” instead of “Ads by Goooogle.” This will give people a good laugh and want to join in.You’re THE first to know and in the front lines of a turning curve. If you’ve missed out all the other curves or you were never in front, this is your chance.
Ben Mack has graciously accepted my offer to be my partner. Thanks, Ben.
Also, Joel Comm sent out a report on how AdSense Is Alive to argue with Scott Boulch. Read more about it here:
On to other things. I saw my official Alexa ranking back down to 105k from the 95k yesterday. However, my daily ranking is at 13k. This just comes to show, I’ve been away WAY too long and need to continue my promotions to bring up the Alexa ranking and bringing in more quality traffic. Seems like what I’m doing is a good start though.
