Strangest Body Augmentation Ever

Insane Body Augmentation
This guy has spikes, and silicone implants in his head, but that's not the end of it. Apart from the tattoos, he has one tattoo of a naked woman, and he actually got surgery to make her appear to have real, tiny breasts!

There are a lot freakier types of cosmetic surgery that people do on themselves, but I've never heard of a guy getting tiny breast implants for his arm before. That's why I'm calling this the strangest body augmentation ever. 

Eyes Popping Out of Your Head

Eye Popping Madness
I'm sure you are familiar with the expression, "your eyes are popping out of your head!" Well here's some people who really do have their eyes popping out of their head. 

It's a short video, so there's not all that much you can say about it. I wonder if they get paid well for doing that.

The Biggest Mouth in the World

Is This the Biggest Mouth in the World?
This guy has a mouth so big, he can fit a whole soda can right in his mouth without even trying. I have no idea why. 

It's quite incredible seeing just how much he can fit in there, and a little scary. It's a good thing he doesn't have sharp teeth. 

The Longest Tongue in the World

Does This Guy Have the Longest Tongue in the World?
I'm not sure if there have been any definitive studies done on who has the longest tongue in the world, but if this guy isn't it, then he would have to be close. 

He does some crazy tricks with his unusually long tongue, and it's a bit gross, but I had to share it with people anyway.  

Opera Singing Parrot

This Parrot Sings Like an Opera Singer!
Listen to this parrot sing like Pavarotti! Here, he does a rendition of The Magic Flute by Mozart. In terms of parrots who can sing, I'm sure he's right up there with the best of them. 

Thank you celinhafink for this amazing video of your opera singing parrot, It's too bad he's no longer with us, but his amazing voice will live on in the hearts of millions. 

The Biggest Bodybuilders in the World

Check out the Muscles on These Guys!
This is a compilation video of the biggest bodybuilders in the world, and as you can see, they are absolutely enormous. 

One guy had biceps so big, they exploded, so look at it as a public service announcement about the dangers of taking steroids, and share it with your friends. 

Bodybuilding is a sport, but once it reaches a certain point, it's more like a circus sideshow act. Don't take performance enhancing drugs! Drugs are bad, OK?

Ridiculously Large Muscles

Take a Look at These Ridiculously Large Muscles!
It's absolutely unbelievable what some people do themselves in the name of body building. These guys have muscles so big, they look like they're going to explode, and in fact one guy's bicep did explode. 

These are the dangers of steroids, and you kids should not attempt this at home. Please share this video with your friends as a public service announcement on the dangers of ridiculously large muscles. 

Animals Going Crazy

These Animals are Going Absolutely Crazy!
This is a compilation of some of the craziest animal footage ever shot. There's cats and dogs, and even lions, polar bears and monkeys, doing the most insane things. 

Everyone loves animals, doing funny and crazy things, so take a look. This You Tube video compilation by MalamuteKid is set to the music of Ozzie Ozbourne's Hellraiser. 

Lions and tigers and bears oh my! You won't believe some of the weird stuff in this video. Please share it with your friends if you think they would laugh. 

Amazing Talking Parrot

Check out this Amazing Talking Parrot!
You have to take a look at this amazing video of a talking parrot. It makes sounds, and says words as though it really understood what the woman was saying. 

She asks it to make about a hundred different sounds like a dog barking, a chimpanzee, a rooster, and many more, and it does the most funny impression. 

I don't know how she trained the parrot to do it, but it's the most amazing talking parrot I've ever seen. If you agree that other people need to see this, please share it with your friends. 

The Sounds a Lyre Bird Makes

The Sounds of the Lyre Bird

Take a listen to the amazing sounds that a lyre bird can make, it can mimic almost any sound, whether human, animal, or machine. 

The lyre bird mimics the sounds of other birds usually, although it can mimic almost anything. Nobody really knows why it developed this talent, but if you have a lyre bird as a pet, you can play it your favorite music, and have it sung back to you without the need for electricity. 

There are two species of lyre bird, the superb lyre bird, and the albert's lyre bird, both found only in the Australian rainforest.

Robot That Can Play The Violin

New Robot by Toyota can Play the Violin

This amazing new robot from Toyota can play the violin, and do many other things such as dance, talk, and even learn. 

The technology is getting to the point where soon we will not just have a robot that can play the violin, but a whole team of robots playing in a band on real instruments, faster and better than a regular band could play. 

I'm not saying that musicians are going to be replaced by robots any time soon, or that a robot band will be bigger than the Beatles, but one day, the descendants of this robot that can play the violin will surely take over the world.

How Much Potential Does Twitter Have for Marketing and Promotion?

The Potential of Twitter for Marketing and Promotion

Twitter is probably the fastest growing site in the world in terms of traffic and new sign-ups, and it looks to be giving Google and Facebook a run for their money in terms of marketing and promotion within a few years, and it doesn't even show advertising on the site. 

In 2011, the site has over two hundred million regular visitors, rising from twenty million in 2009, according to Alexa traffic statistics. 

Facebook and Google have almost a billion regular visitors each, and there are other sites that get more traffic than Twitter, but none of them are growing so quickly. 

In terms of marketing and promotion, it's possible to get a thousand Twitter followers a day or more, and you can do it for free by clicking a button, or even pay for followers on a site like Twiends

Marketing and Promotion on Twitter

There are many ways to do marketing and promotion on Twitter, but I'll tell you how I do it. I write a whole bunch of articles, (they could perhaps all be pointing back to the one site), and I tweet the links out with enticing messages to my multiple Twitter accounts using a service like Splitweet, which lets you tweet to multiple Twitter accounts at once.

I also use Twaitter to schedule links all through the day, and perhaps manage which followers I want to follow back, or unfollow using Tweeter Karma.

I just keep writing more articles, getting more followers, and figuring out which pages make me the most money, and get the most views, and tweet them more often. 

You have a limit of the amount of times you can tweet one link in a day, and it takes a couple of hours before you can do the same one again, but you can tweet different sub-domain URLs from the same domain one after the other.

Personally, my problem is that I haven't found the perfect way to make money yet. I don't have my own domain name, I haven't found my niche, and I lost my Google Adsense account. 

I am looking to get work writing, link building, and doing social promotion for other people, so if you are interested, you can contact me at, or take a look at my gigs on Fiverr.

For more Twitter marketing and promotion tips, by one of these great value books from Amazon.

What is the Best Way to Sell Affiliate Products Online?

The Best Way to Sell Affiliate Products

I'm just starting out in the world of affiliate marketing, and I have no formal training, and I'm trying to work out the answer to this question myself. 

From what I've seen, there is a lot of competition for every method of selling affiliate products, and every profitable niche seems to have been filled by professionals in the game. That doesn't mean you can't find a way around them.

The most profitable way seems to be building a website with good SEO, in a specific niche which doesn't have as much competition as the more expensive affiliate products. 

Then, you use link building to get it on the first page of a Google search for the title, and in multiple related searches, and you also use pay per click advertising, social promotion, and perhaps email marketing to drive more traffic to the site.  

So What is the Best Method of Affiliate Marketing?

There isn't one specific way to do affiliate marketing, it's more about finding what you can do that makes money, and doing that. 

Personally, I'm mainly selling products through Amazon Associates on my blog because I lost my Google Adsense account. I have sold a few books, but nothing big yet. 

I write titles that are specific, so they get on the first page of that exact Google search and stay there, (hopefully). I get a thousand Twitter followers a day through Twiends, and tweet out links to all my good pages. 

It's slow going, and I'm sure there are faster ways, such as paying for advertising, or having a well-optimized website, but I don't feel like risking money, until I have a better idea of what it is I want to sell.

For SEO, you can do some keyword research by typing in a keyword phrase in the Google Adwords keyword tool, and seeing the search volume globally and locally, then you do a Google search, and check the page rank of the first page results. Type the keyword phrase in quotation marks to see the exact match results. 

Write articles, and use social bookmarking sites to make back links, which improves your Google rating, and make sure you pick a title that hasn't got too much competition. 

As I said, I'm just learning about all this stuff, and there aren't any magic solutions to earning $10,000 a day from an hour's work as some scam sites would claim, cause if they could do that, why would they bother telling you so you could compete with them? 

I would recommend reading these cheap books from Amazon though, as I'm sure you would learn something helpful.

How do you Continue to Work When you Cant Walk?

Continue to Work Even Though you Can't Walk

It's never easy to deal with a permanent injury, particularly one that is so serious that you can no longer walk, but it is very possible to continue to work, perhaps even in the same industry you were in before. 

There are many people in wheelchairs who drive themselves to work each day, and sit at a computer, or answer phones, but if you would rather not have to stay quite so active, you can work for yourself at home on a lap top, sitting in bed, doing pretty much what I'm doing now.  

Continue to Work Online

You might ask what I'm talking about, and I'm not talking about one specific opportunity, but you can set up a free blog like this one, and put ads on the page from Google Adsense, Amazon, Clickbank, or any number of different companies. 

You write fairly specific titles, make sure you don't stuff too many keywords in, make a few back links, and you should get found in a Google search. I talk more about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) methods in another article. 

The other way I get traffic to my pages is through SMO (Social Media Optimization). Every day, I add about a thousand Twitter followers on Twiends, which I can do by clicking a button on my iPad in bed, and I tweet out to my followers the links of my articles and blog posts, and get an ever-increasing amount of traffic, which converts to real money from clicks on the ads.

An iPad has some limitations, so if you are planning to work on the computer in bed, I would suggest using a light lap top computer, and my favorite type of computer is a Mac. 

You can get a Macbook for almost half the price (buying it online through Amazon), as you would be able to get it for in a store.

Is There any Way for me to Work From bed?

 Is there a Way for me to Work From Bed?

Is there any good way to work at home in bed, and make a decent living? Well, I'm in bed right now, writing this blog post on my iPad.

It is probably better to use a lap top for increased functionality, but I like the iPad cause it's small and doesn't weigh much.

I do a lot of stuff in bed, such as get Twitter followers by pressing a button on Twiends, writing blog posts and drafts, and maybe filling out surveys.

I don't make a great deal of money right now, but the way blogging works is you build up a residual income as people find your blog posts in a Google search or other places, and perhaps even become return visitors.

The visitors click on the ads every now and then, and you can set up your blog or website to show ads from Google Adsense, Amazon, or any other type of advertising company.

I don't do all my work in bed, as I need to use my normal computer to do stuff I can't do on the iPad like add photos and links, and in hindsight, I probably should have bought a laptop.

I only just started blogging here, I usually write articles on Factoidz, where you can make up to $20 straight away for doing a 300 word product review, or up to $3 for a regular article, plus residuals from views on the page.

How Much can you Make Working From Bed?

To tell you the truth, I'm only just learning how to make money online, or work from bed, but I'm getting about a thousand Twitter followers a day by clicking a button while watching TV, and by tweeting links to the pages I write, I make about ten cents extra a day for each thousand.

To make that clear, I have about twenty thousand Twitter followers, and by tweeting different page links at different times of the day, I can get over a thousand views, depending on whether the titles have widespread appeal.

A thousand views could be worth anything from fifty cents to twenty dollars or more, depending on the value of the keywords of the ads, and whether people click on them.

I haven't been doing this long, but if I keep doing what I'm doing, by my calculations, I should have a million Twitter followers within five years, and be getting around fifty thousand page views a day, mostly from Twitter and Google, which would make me as much as a regular job, and the income would continue to grow, and perhaps double a few years after that.

I think I am on the right track, I'm learning new things every day, and I think it's very possible to work from bed and make a good living if you stick at it and don't give up. Take a look at my other posts for more tips.

Now, if you don't already have a good lap top, I would recommend you buy the latest Macbook from Amazon, which is a lot cheaper to buy online than it would be in a department store.

I Cant Seem to Make any Money Online

I can't seem to make any money online. How about you?

It's not that I haven't made any money online, and I understand the idea of building a residual income, as opposed to a day's pay for a day's work, but after trying for a year and a half to make some decent money by writing articles and doing odd jobs here and there, I feel that I may be doing something wrong. 

I have made a couple of thousand dollars, and built a residual income of a few dollars a day, which fluctuates as the views on my pages go up and down, and sometimes a site I write on will change it's payment plan, which affects how much I make as well. 

I sometimes fill out surveys, do SEO and social promotion for other people on Fiverr, but so far I haven't quite grasped how to make enough money online to live comfortably for the rest of my life. 

One of the major hurdles that stands in my way is I lost both my Google Adsense and Google Adwords accounts. 

When writing on my own blog here, I have to use Amazon ads, or ad codes from Adzly. My main plan at the moment is to simply build up enough Twitter followers that I can make a decent living by tweeting my articles on Factoidz and Triond, and then maybe I can use the same Twitter followers to get paid for promoting websites for other people.

Still, that's not such a bad plan, because I am getting a thousand Twitter followers a day, and tweeting to 20,000 can produce a dollar just from my article views, so perhaps tweeting to a million will give me an income of fifty dollars a day. 

It's not out of the realms of possibility that I will be on a decent income, if not a multi-millionaire within the next ten years, if I just keep at it, learning and changing. I think a lot of people would identify with the statement of "I can't seem to make any money online", because at least 99% of all people who try to make money online will fail, or rather give up.

I got a Stiff Neck From Sitting at the Computer all day

Do you have a stiff neck from sitting at the computer all day?

I would assume that if you found this page, you were doing a Google search on something related to having a stiff neck, perhaps from sitting at the computer all day. 

What can I do to help you? Well, I could recommend that you get a massage, take a pill, or drink yourself silly, but preventing a stiff neck may come down to having a chair with better ergonomic design, or not sitting at the computer all day in the same position. 

I do a lot of the work I would usually do sitting in a chair in front of my computer in bed on an iPad 2, and perhaps this is the solution for you. 

You can type, surf the net, make artwork, send emails, or click on buttons, while listening to your favorite music through headphones. It really is the perfect solution to prevent having a stiff neck from sitting at the computer all day. 

Making Pages With Good SEO

Making Pages With Good Search Engine Optimization

The number one most important thing in SEO is making pages with a title that people will search for, but don't have too much competition. 

When I first made this blog, I called it SEO Articles, and I couldn't have picked a worse title to try to compete for. 

I'm not sure that Article Invention is much better, but I'm gonna try that one out for a while, and see if it works well enough to bother getting a custom domain name here on Blogger. 

People think that SEO is hard, but all it really comes down to is picking the right title, and making a nice, long, high quality page with a few keywords scattered through it, (about 3%), some photos, subheadings, and a few back links to it. 

You could build hundreds of back links to a site, and try to compete for a keyword phrase with a high search volume, but it may not work, so the best way is to pick a title that most people wouldn't think of, and then do that a thousand times. 

For example, the title of this blog post is making pages with good SEO, and while that may be a phrase used a lot by SEO experts, there are probably not any website home pages that have that exact title. 

I'm pretty sure I can compete for that title, at least on the first page of a Google search locally, and therefore I will pick up a small amount of traffic each year. 

It's when you do that over and over again that it really adds up. Why bother spending all of your time trying to build up the home page of your website, when you could send them there from thousands of different articles and blog posts with specific titles? 

How do I Know About Making Pages With Good SEO?

I learned everything I know about SEO from writing on article writing sites like Factoidz, and that's pretty much it. If I was going to try to sell something, like an iPad, I wouldn't try to compete for any keyword phrase that had iPad in it, I would think of something the iPad can do that solves a problem that people have, try to think of the phrase they might enter if they had that problem, and then make a page with that title. 

For example, I might write an article or blog post entitled: I got a stiff neck from sitting at the computer all day. Then I show them the iPad 2, which they can use to do most of the same things in bed.

Is SEO Easier Than it Seems?

 Is SEO Easier Than it Seems?

For many years people have been told that SEO is all about making thousands of back links, from pages that are keyword relevant, and have a high page rank, from relevant link text, and that have authority or expert status, etc, etc, but from what I know, SEO can be a lot easier than that.

This page is a test, to see if I can get this blog post on my free blog on the first page of a Google search simply by choosing a fairly specific title, and making a few back links from sites like Digg, Delicious, Bebo, Google Buzz, Linked In and Twitter.

I have a feeling that SEO is easier than it seems, and all I have to do is write a fairly long page with fairly relevant keywords in it, mix up the words a little, like I could say that it seems to be easier to do SEO these days since the latest Google algorithm updates, and that's about it.

Subtitles Make for Good SEO

It's a good idea to include subtitles that have some of the keywords in your title, as they split the page up, and make it easier to read. 

What you also have to remember is that the bounce rate is very important these days, so you are not writing for a Google bot, you are writing for people, so they stay on the page long enough to perhaps click on an ad. 

Google will like your page even more if people tend to click on a Google Adsense ad every now and then, but be careful not to do that yourself, or you won't have a Google Adsense account.

Generally these days, it's more about quality than it is about SEO, and the only back links that really count are from sites with a huge amount of authority like a government or university site. 

That's not to say that all of the SEO techniques that have existed for years are not still valid, they are just less important these days, and probably the most important thing you can focus on is title choice, and quality content.

How do you Make Money as an Affiliate Marketer Online?

Make Money as an Affiliate Marketer Online

How do you make money as an affiliate marketer online? It's not all that easy to get into the world of affiliate marketing, because there is a lot of competition from people trying to sell products from companies like Amazon and Clickbank, but really, it's the same sort of thing as having Google Adsense on your page, except you only get paid when someone actually buys the product. 

I am no expert in affiliate marketing, and this blog post is more of a question than an answer to how you make money as an online affiliate marketer, but from what I've learned so far, there are basically two or three main methods. 

You can pay for advertising, make pages with good SEO, or use social marketing to try to get a lot of traffic to your affiliate links, and hope that there are enough people that some of them will buy something. Some say that email lists are the way to go. 

Why do Most Affiliate Marketers Fail?

When you compare the amount of people who would actually buy a product to the number of people who would click on a Google ad, you realize that there is a massive difference in the numbers per thousand views. 

To get paid well for affiliate marketing, or better than you would for an ordinary ad, you need extremely targeted traffic to your website, article or blog post, and you need to pick an affiliate product that pays you well enough for it to be worth your while. 

This is why 99% of affiliate marketers fail. The products that pay the most, and can offer ongoing residual payments have so much stiff competition, you would be lucky to ever get an article or even an ad to compete for those keywords. 

Therefore, you can't get extremely targeted traffic to your pages promoting your high competition affiliate links, and probably the best you could hope for is to use social marketing on Twitter, or spam marketing using questionable methods to get less targeted traffic. 

I talked with this guy who spams emails to people whose email address he pulled off the net using illegal software, and he has to spam 500,000 people to get one sale.

Still, the affiliate marketing business is a billion dollar industry, and if I can't teach you how to do it, maybe you can get some tips from these books from Amazon.

Earn Money by Clicking a Button in bed.

It sounds too good to be true doesn't it, earning money by clicking a button in bed, but that's pretty much what I do all day. Let me start by explaining what I did to get that to happen.

First, I make pages that make me money from either Google Adsense, Amazon Associates, or some other referral link.

I schedule recurring tweets on my different Twitter accounts for these pages at different times of the day using Twaitter, and then I sit in bed and click the Facebook like button on Twiends, using different Facebook, Twitter, and Twiends accounts, which gets me over a thousand new Twitter followers every day.

I explain more clearly exactly how I manage my Twitter followers on my Factoidz article: Social Marketing Methods, but what it comes down to, is I can write a blog post, or make a page that has a good chance of making me money, and then I schedule the tweets, and earn money by clicking a button in bed all day on the touch screen of my iPad, while watching TV.

You can buy an iPad at a much cheaper price online through Amazon, so check out the prices, and order one now, to earn money by clicking a button in bed.

What's the Difference Between Blogging and Article Writing?

The Difference Between Blogging and Article Writing

The difference between a blog and an article is a subtle thing, but it is fairly important. A blog is a site where all of your most recent posts appear on the home page, one after the other, while an article is a stand-alone page, which only has links made to it on the home page or profile page. 
A blog can be better for SEO purposes in making back links to another site or article if the home page of the blog has a good page rank, otherwise, it doesn't really help at all. 

This blog for example, doesn't even have a page rank of 0, and I've been building back links to it for a long time, and posting regularly. 

Obviously I'm doing something wrong, and I think the reason is that I lost my Google Adsense account, and as Google owns Blogger, they rank my blog here lower, because it's only showing Amazon ads. 

Still, I have sold a few Amazon products through this blog, with the most successful being the books on SEO, but I'm still not gettting my blog posts on the first page of a popular Google search, and that's why this blog post is only being made as a back link to the real article on Factoidz. 

Take a look at the real article, where I discuss the SEO benefits of blogging and article writing, and whether you need to buy your own domain name, or whether you can find a free site to blog on or write articles which pays just as well.

How do you Remove the Blog Title From Your Post Title on Blogger?

It is quite simple to remove the blog title from your post title in your Blogger blog by changing the template html. 

As you can see, the title of this post does not have SEO Articles in front of it. I grew quite sick of having to type in SEO Articles: How do you Remove the Blog Title From Your Post Title on Blogger? in order to find my post.

This whole blog does not do very well in a Google search even after I removed the blog title from the front of the post title, and I have more luck with my free Typepad blog, where it is easy to remove the blog title from the post title, and to make an individual description for each post.

Anyway, to get the code that you will need to change the html of your template on Blogger so it no longer has the blog title in the post title, you will need to go to the linked page above, and find out how to do it in the original article, as I only use this free blog to make back links.

While you're here though, you may want to take a look at the new iPad 2, it's the latest and greatest thing in tablet computers, and it's selling like hotcakes. You can blog in bed, make cool pictures like the one above, and watch free movies and TV shows on your iPad 2 wherever you go.

Article Writing Versus Blogging

Blogging and Article Writing

This article talks about the difference between blogging and article writing, the SEO benefits of each, and whether you need to buy a domain name and have a hosted blog or website or not.

I talk about how you set up your own hosted blog on Wordpress or some other template building site, get hosting, and whether you should go for the blog format, or the article writing format on your site.

I compare the amount of money you can make from paying to get your own domain with writing articles and blogs for free on other people's websites, and whether it's worth all the hassle.

Personally, I'm quite happy writing articles on Factoidz, and doing my free blogs here and on Typepad. I've just started making money from Amazon ads, and I make about a hundred a month on Factoidz, and more from other sites.

It's rising fairly quickly too, because I've only been writing there for three months, and I have continually made more each month, so I am predicting that in a year or so, I should be making enough to pay all of my bills, when you add up all of the money I make from all of the article writing sites and blogging sites I write on.

Take a look at the article, and if you are a blogger yourself, you might enjoy blogging in bed on an iPad 2, which I am doing now.
