in Affiliate/Indonesia/Internet by

Today is a historic day on my ClickBank Affiliate Program. My very first cheque from ClickBank finally arrived in the mail. Great!

Even it’s not a big money on the cheque, but it’s can be a proven that I can join to Clickbank affiliate program.

Just want to share with that making money online is indeed real and possible. Its a real business dealing with real person and earning real US dollars.

ClickBank Cheque

Internet Marketing is indeed tough. Requires a lot of commitment and determination to be able to succeed. It’s not one night rich or easy money 😉

Hopefully, I can make more money in Clickbank affiliate program.

I have a dream of being able to earn money without being restricted by my geographical location and Internet Marketing is by far the most powerful method of fulfilling my dream. Hopefully my dream will come true. Amen!

Wish you and me luck…

Google had announced that they have expanded Western Union payment to the following five countries, Bulgaria, Egypt, Lithuania, Morocco, and Taiwan.

Western Union payments are also currently available in other countries, including Argentina, Chile, China (Mainland), Colombia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines and Romania.

If you’re located in one of these countries, you’ll be able to pick up your AdSense payments in cash at your local Western Union agent. This payment method is free, and you’ll no longer need to wait for checks to arrive in the mail or to clear at the bank.

Please keep in mind that in order to pick up your payment, you’ll need to present a government-issued ID that matches your AdSense payee name. If you need to update or correct the payee name listed in your account, please fill out our online form. In addition, we’d like to note that payments by Western Union Quick Cash are only available to individual payee names, but not to businesses.

Well, there are a lot of Western Union agent in Indonesia. But unfortunately, Western Union payment is still not available for us, Indonesian. Hopefully next expansion, Indonesia will be include to the countries that can use Western Union for Adsense payment =)

FeedBurner AdSense for feeds

in Blogging/Google/Internet by

FeedBurner has confirmed that Google Adsense advertising is being integrated in Feedburner feeds and that should increase the income generated from feed advertising.

FeedBurner intersperses ads in blog feeds between every few posts. Integrating with AdSense will allow for publishers to tap into contextual ads for their feeds, in addition to the ads that FeedBurner already sells.

Feedburner also lets you place Feedburner Network Ads on your website, and you can fall back upon Adsense ads in case of lack of ad fill. Now a complete integration of Feedburner and Adsense in feeds will let anyone place Google Adsense ads in their feeds and also let advertisers directly target your feed.

Any publisher who has a Google AdSense account may now run AdSense ads on their site if they already participate in the FeedBurner Ad Network (FAN) or use our FeedFlare service to display interactive links below content on their sites. AdSense ads in 300×250 or 468×60 format will display below the first post on each page of your site that has our script code installed.

To activate the service:

  1. Sign in to your FeedBurner account.
  2. Click your feed’s title on My Feeds.
  3. Visit the Monetize tab, where you can connect this service to your AdSense account (if you already have one), or create a new AdSense account (if you don’t).

Have a great day!
