New AdSense gambling ad category

Everyone get this email? I wonder if they’ll make a difference

We’re constantly reviewing the categories of ads available to our AdSense publishers in order to provide access to a wide range of possible advertisers. Towards this goal, beginning on September 27, we’re expanding the inventory of Google ads eligible to show on the AdSense network to include gambling-related ads from trusted advertisers.

Please note that the AdSense program policies will continue to prohibit the placement of ads on sites that accept money or allow users to place bets in exchange for an opportunity to earn cash or other prizes, directly from the site. In addition, these new ads will only be shown to users in regions where gambling is legal, which is determined by the location of the end-user. A full list of these locations can be found at the following link: . Finally, publishers may not opt in to receiving ads from this new category if their sites are intended for individuals under 18 years of age.

Domain forwarding, SEO, Google search results…did I do this right?

I bought a domain name that I am going to use to forward to a particular page on my website.

Example

I bought through GoDaddy

And set it up to forward permanately to

My objective was to lure in people searching for the key words

Question #1: Did I do this right? Or should I have the domain name point to an existing page that then re-directs to my site or contains a simple link to my site?

Question #2: With it setup the way it is. How will it appear in a Google search? Will it show the url and site description of the page I forwarded it to?

Anyone ever had a domain name get jacked (not expired)?

Some asshole convinced the registrar that he is the owner of a domain name via a photoshopped passport (with no picture ). they gave him access to the account, and he transferred out the domain name. Didnt change DNS or anything for a few weeks, so I didnt notice.

I needed to make some changes, log in…. no domain name. Been on/off the phone with my/new registrars. They froze the account for like a day, but then the guy said we sold him the domain, so they unfroze it, and he changed DNS.

How much would you charge

for a personal injury law firm website
similar to these.
1)
2)
3)
4)

Plus SEO for the site, they want to be in the top 3 search results for florida/south florida for personal injury

The sites are not complex, but I don’t want to undercharge, plus its a old friend from highschool, and they are going to compare with some other webdesign people in the area.

Never make any specific guarantees when it comes to SEO rankings. Personal injury lawyers are one of the most fiercely competitive areas, even locally.

Mass Text Messaging

looking to find a way to send mass text messages for free. I might do the carrier phone number email address, but if I could find another way, I’d like to. Ideally id like to have someone send a text to a specific number then it forwards it to about 20-30 other phones. I might see if I can do this with google voice, but if not, id love to have other options. Any ideas? Thanks a lot

check out twilio.com – it’s not free but it’s damn near cheap.

hmmm, this might be exactly what i’m looking for. I’ll look in to it!

Swedish client says he "can’t handle PayPal" and needs my IBAN and SWIFT

Does this sound like some weird scam? I thought everyone could handle PayPal. PayPal even lets you do bank transfers.

Should I pass on this guy?

I’ve never heard of any Swedish scams… it’s not like he’s in Nigeria or something.

It’s a potentially pretty big purchase. Am I in any danger from an international bank transfer? Does this sound like a scam setup?

It may be perfectly fine. I just don’t know anything about this stuff.
