    I thank you very much, webmaster, for this great blog. I really appreciate your posts.

  12. Mike says:

    This is a great post. I have never used google ads because I don’t want to irritate my users. The simple fact that I can enable them only for search engine traffic is amazing. For the first time I am going to try google ads on my site. Hopefully this will help me bring in some income through the blog.

  13. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    I think the best is doing thing is to give a try first and assess the result afterwards as it is impossible to know the outcome without giving a try first.

    It would be great if you can share the result Mike. There must be a lot of readers are interested in knowing about it.

  14. Mike says:

    Sure thing, I’ll get some ads up maybe next week and if I can remember I’ll come back after about thirty days and post the results here. I’m most interested in seeing how the ads perform on the posts that I wrote using the google keyword tool that we discussed on the other post since those are the pages that are giving me the most search engine traffic and the information in your post says search engine visitors click ads the most.

  15. Kushal Chap says:

    I didn’t know much about hotlinking before thanks for the info.

  16. Mike says:

    So if my hosting plan has unlimited bandwith do I need to worry about hotlinking?

  17. ariff says:

    Nope. U dont have to worry about that.

  18. Mike says:

    oh ok thanks. I probably dont get enough traffic right now for it anyway. I dont see why someone would hotlink anyway. Its too easy to download the file and upload it to photobucket.

  19. ariff says:

    People sometimes can be very lazy. It’s as simple as Right click, copy and paste the image url. Done!

  20. Mike says:

    yeah that is pretty lazy and I can see why someone would do that. It just seems like a bad strategy. If someone deletes a pic from their site then your blog would look crazy with a bunch of empty images.

  21. ariff says:

    Well dont have to delete the images, just put the hotlinking protection would teach them a good lesson
