If you are quite active on Facebook and other social networking sites like Twitter, you would realize in last 2 months many people started complaining about banned Adsense account. Initially it was not limited to a certain country, infact I have seen many Indian Adsense publishers got their Adsense account banned in last couple of months and most of them was because of Invalid clicks, placing ads which doesn’t meet Adsense ad placement criteria or due to placing ads on a site which doesn’t meet their quality guidelines. No matter what, in most of the cases such banning could be justified itself by the webmasters and many of them accepted they made a mistake by placing ads on such pages. Anyways, Adsense team went more aggressive this time and they banned many Pakistan based Adsense publishers and as mentioned above violation is one of the reasons I stated above. For example, one of Pakistan Blogger Zee Shan, received the following Email from Adsense team: Hello, After … [Read more...] about Adsense Banned Mass Pakistan Adsense Publishers

I wanted this to be my first post on ShoutMeLoud, but instead wrote another post that served as prelude to this one. One common problem I see with most Bloggers is they fail to grip their audience. Even though they have excellent content, they never succeed in convincing their visitors to interact with them. So far you saw, I started with Controversial Marketing, moved on to bloggers and then about involving users. Wondering, what controversial marketing has to do with bloggers and user involvement ? The answer is Controversial Marketing has to power to: sell, grips users, engages users, give a platform to users, to share what they believe is right/wrong (If you still don’t trust me, go you youtube and see any controversial video, eespecially some of those indo-pak / indo-china ones, you’ll know what I mean). There are different styles to put across your thoughts to your visitors, and adding controversial touch to it is one of the quickest way to spice up things. If you … [Read more...] about [Blogging Tips] Controversial Marketing – Never A Failure ?

I’m trying something new today. Last week saw over 375 new games listed on Steam, and get this: Roughly half of them didn’t even release. Steam has become such a dumping ground for trash that out of nearly 400 titles slated for release between July 28 and August 3, half of the developers never bothered actually putting them out. And the other half? Don’t get me started. Hentai slider puzzles, trashy RPG maker games, a Brian Boitano simulator, and more! It’s enough to make you not want to bother even looking at the release list. And that’s where I come in. I took a gander through the release list so you don’t have to, and pulled out more than a dozen games that look like they may actually be worth playing. Please note that this is solely based off of first impressions of the gameplay videos, reviews, and description of the title itself. I haven’t played the games and thus make no statement on their quality or whether you the reader will enjoy … [Read more...] about [Not Massive] Last Week’s Steam Games You Might Enjoy
