GeoCities is Closing – I Told You to Stay Away From Free Hosting!

Yahoo has made a huge announcement that they’re no longer accepting new Geocities customers and later this year they’ll be closing all accounts and deleting all Geocities websites.

Now, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…you should never rely on free website hosting.

If you have any Geocities sites that send you traffic or revenue you’d better hustle and get all of the content moved to a paid host.  Obviously Yahoo is hoping you’ll migrate all of your sites onto their own paid service (which will create quite a revenue spike for them), but there are many other options when it comes to web hosting.

I’m Looking For Guest Writers – Do You Have What It Takes?

You’ve probably noticed that the number of posts I’ve been making on this blog has dropped a lot lately.  Its not that I’ve run out of things to say but rather I lack the time to say them. 

I have a couple of other projects going on right now and I’ve also had a lot going on in my personal life…so when its all said and done I’ve got more going on than I can handle right now. 

Since I really want to keep this blog fresh I’m currently looking for a few guest writers so I can mix in some guest posts with my own writing. 

You up for the challenge?  :)


Here’s the deal…send me an original, high-quality post about any of the topics I discuss here (internet marketing, link building, blogging, article marketing, etc.) and if it fits my needs I’ll post it here at  You can include a link back to one of your own sites so you’ll get a free, permanent link from this blog. 

When you send me the article you give me permission to republish it here as I see fit.  I’ll generally leave them as is but I will correct any minor spelling and grammer errors.  Please make sure they’re completely original.  I won’t publish anything that is PLR crap, poorly written, or doesn’t fit in the context of this blog.

I’ll publish articles on an “as I need them” basis so I can’t schedule them too far in advance.  I’d like to keep a few in reserve for times where I can’t get a new post done regulary. 

Sound good? 

To submit a guest post just shoot me an email at imiseasy @ gmail.  Attach the post as a simple text file and please make the Subject line “IMISEASY Guest Post” so I don’t accidentally delete it. 

Now get writing!

Internet Marketing Tips – Don’t Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

There’s one mistake made by one would-be internet marketing genius after another. They spend months or years learning the ropes of online business and then they finally hit upon a method that works for them. having found their own little formula for success, they start repeating the process over and over again.

Before they know it they have a whole network of sites plugging away earning them steady money day after day. They figure as long as they continue building new sites their income will continue to grow.

Its really a good plan and you would do well to follow it. But, they’re missing out on one key concept that could wipe out their entire business overnight.


Relying too much on any given method or third party site is a recipe for disaster. You need to diversify your streams of income to protect your business from the unexpected. Just think about what would happen if:

You built hundreds of AdSense sites and blogs only to have your AdSense account terminated.

You submitted hundreds of articles to EzineArticles and a virus attack wiped out their databases and all your articles were deleted.

You’re earning big commissions promoting a popular affiliate program that suddenly goes under.

Your highly profitable Pay Per Click campaign nosedives after Google raises the minimum bid for your keywords from 15 cents to ten dollars.

If this article teaches you nothing else, please understand that you need to diversify yourself so if one revenue stream dries up the others will keep you afloat. If you put all of your eggs in one basket you may just end up with a basket of broken eggs.
