Wordpress Posts and Pages Disappeared

When posts and pages in your self-hosted wordpress blog are disappeared, it's all due to the crash in the MySQL database. Read on to fix it.

Suddenly, five thousands more posts/articles and all static pages disappeared in one of my self-hosted wordpress blog. Don't panic! I say to myself. That's not the work of a hacker. The first thing I do is to email Hostgator, the webhosting service where I hosted the blog. While awaiting the respond from them, I made a quick search on similar occurrences. And it turns out this things did occur quite few times in self-hosted wordpress blog. Not so clear which to blame: wordpress or the host. The important is you should fix it quickly.

The best thing to fix it is by asking your hosting provider to fix it for you.

Just in case they don't want to do it, you can do it yourself by this simple steps:

Login to your CPanel which located at yoursite.com/cpanel
Go to MySQL Databases
Select Wordpress Database
Click Repair. Done.

Hope it works.

Update: The problem has been fixed by my host provider. They said, my website has experienced crash in MySQL database. And it's been repaired.

How to Make Money Online Sucessfully

Have a vision!, says Daniel Scocco of Dailyblogtips.

If you want to have success, whether it is online or offline, you need to have a crystal clear vision about what you want to accomplish. You need to believe in that vision, and work hard to achieve it no matter what obstacles are going to appear along the way.

The opposite of having a vision in making a living online is by doing opportunistically without any clear direction which will lead you to total failure

What is the opposite of having and strong vision and working to achieve it? Acting opportunistically, and that is a problem that I see with many people trying to make a living online.

When you act opportunistically, you will jump from project to project, from business model to business model, trying to make money in whatever ways you manage to discover. Sometimes you will also put principles and ethics aside to catch those “opportunities.”

How to be Accepted as Clicksor Publisher

I tried my luck to be Clicksor publisher using a Bahasa Indonesia website/blog. As expected, the submission is rejected.

Some important points from the Clicksor's rejection response can be used as the key to get accepted as Clicksor publisher:

A blog / website should have more than 5,000 pageviews.
From that amount of pageviews, a blog / website should have at least 50 % traffic from Canada, United States and United Kingdom.
Should be a self-hosted website / blog. NOT free one.

The good news is you still can join Clicksor's affiliate program from which you may earn 10% from someone you refered. Register here if interested.

AdBrite PPC and In-text Ads


Adbrite is one of the oldest ads services besides AdSense which offers all publishers, big and small websites and from any languages, to earn additional income from their site now known as monetization.

I used to get checks twice from Adbrite for earning I got. Check?! Yes, Adbrite will pay you via check and check only! No paypal. No western union (like Adsense). And that's the exact reason I quit Adbrite couple of years back. And when I just checked Adbrite a moment ago if there's a change on payment method it uses it turns out a big no no. From Adbrite help center:

At this time, AdBrite offers payment by check only. The check will be mailed to the address listed on the account and issued in US dollars. When registering your account, we recommend setting your minimum check amount accordingly, as foreign banks often have fees associated with depositing checks issued in US currency. We are constantly evaluating options and services to better the marketplace experience. Any introduction of alternative payment options will be announced as we would like all AdBrite users to participate

Having said that, if you insist to try Adbrite, you may register here. I recommend you to set the payment limit at least $100 or $150 because check below $100 cannot be cleared in Indonesia.

If you have an Indonesian website or blogs Adbrite have several advantages:

It accepts a non-English speaking websites / blogs
It accepts a website with 'lonely' traffics.
It has two type of ads: (1) Text and banner ads like Adsense and (2) In-text ads or inline ads*, as Adbrite call it, like infolinks.com (see live demo in this blog) or Kontera. I intend to try this one for my non-English blogs as infolinks does not accept a non-English blog for now.

Sign-up or register adbrite here (aff).

* Inline ads or in-text ads definition according to Adbrite:

Inline ads are text ads that appear only when your user hovers over selected keywords that are double-underlined on your site. No HTML formatting is necessary to start showing inline ads on your zone(s), just pop in our code and you're done.

A maximum of 8 words per page and no more than 1.6% of eligible text will be highlighted.

Other Ads Services from AdBrite

It's called Full page ads: means a full-page ad shown in-between the pages of your site. In another word, It's also called pop-up or pop-under ads. The CPM pricing of this program is good. Some say around $4 CPM (per-thousand pageviews). However, be careful to implement this ads on your personal website. This kind of ads is considered obstrusive and distract readers. Use with your own risk.

Ad.ly Making Money via Twitter

If you have a twitter account with many followers or just a few, you still can make money through a Twitter advertising company called Ad.ly.

You set the price and once an advertiser is interested to put an ad in your tweet, you'll earn money. For how much? It depends on how much price you have set. John Chow said once that he got USD 2,000 (yes, two thousand US dollar for one tweet ads!)

Etology Advertising: PPC and Ads Netrworks

Etology PPC Ads Netrworks

If you don't feel like using AdBrite as an alternate to your AdSense ads, Etology could be your other choice to earn more money when Adsense ads is not available. Or you can even put Etology side by side with AdSense without worrying it would be against AdSense TOS (Term of Service). Since the system is different. While Adsense sells contextaul ads, Etology sells targeted ads which oftentimes uncontextual. As far as I am concerned, Etology pays better than AdBrite. Better even, Etology pays you using Paypal, unlike Adbrite which still stick to pays you with check.

Here are some brief FAQs about Etology for publishers like you:

How do I get started?

The first thing you want to do as a seller/publisher is to register your website by first signing up for our free membership. After creating an account, you can register your website under the “Publisher Dashboard” after logging in the first time. Click on “Add A New Website.” Fill in the required information and our site review team will review your website to make sure it complies with our guidelines. *Note: For site description, it is recommended for sellers/publishers to write as detailed a description of their site as possible. This will provide a quick summary of what your site is about and will allow advertisers to see if your site would be a good fit for them.

How much will I get paid for my traffic?
This depends on the origin of the traffic. At Etology, we currently have a 3 Tiered pricing model, with Tier 1 traffic as the highest paying. The pricing varies per tier depending on demand for viewers from a particular region.

The traffic origin is what counts so if you have users originating from our Tier 1 / Tier 2 / Tier 3 network, publishers will be paid 70% of the price set for the region.The Tiered network pricing is a variable rate and changes as Etology continues to grow and new advertisers participate in our program.

Tier 1 Countries United States, North America, & United Kingdom

Tier 2 Countries European Countries: Germany, France, Italy

Tier 3 Countries Vietnam, Turkey, India

When do I get paid and what are my payment options?
Our minimum payout is set at USD$50 dollars. All publishers are eligible to be paid by check, PayPal, and Epassporte. We also offer Bank Wire as a payment option with a USD$500 dollar minimum payout and an additional service fee of $30. Etology payments are typically sent on the 25th of the month schedule; this means that payments are sent twenty-five (25) days after the last day of the month when you have reached the minimum payout amount.

For your initial payment, a confirmation email will be sent to you once you have exceeded your minimum payout regarding your upcoming payment. US publishers will receive payments by check unless they specify Etology Credit. International publishers are required to respond to that email informing us of their preferred method of payment before payment is sent out.

Once you have received your first payment, you will receive payment on the scheduled pay period according to the payment method listed in your “My Account” page.

We do not have the option to choose payment method using the Etology system at the moment.

What happens if my Banner Ad Space is unsold?
If banner ad spaces do not have a direct ad campaign running, network banner ads will be cycled through the banner space. Network ad clicks will be CPC based on legitimately registered clicks. CPC pricing varies depending on location of the user as well as the ad cycled through the banner space.

Yahoo Ads Publisher Network (YPN) program has opened its beta version. It'll be competing with many other pay per click (PPC) programs partiularly Google AdSense.

Apart from that, YPN seems to have similarity in terms of quality content a publisher should and should not have to be eligible as Yahoo Ads publishers:
