The Formula for Launching Products That Changed the Internet

I only give good advise :-)  Follow me on this one.

A couple of years ago I had a guest on the show who had launched some of the biggest products on the Internet. He’d had great success, so I researched it a little more and signed up for his course. It described, in detail, how to launch a product online. I ended up signing up for the
course, paying my $$ and found absolutely fantastic value. It was a soup-to-nuts course by the world’s leading Product Launch guy, Jeff

He’s released a set of absolutely free value-packed, no-registration required videos. They aren’t the typical hard-sell videos, in fact he
only mentions where you can find more at the end. These are value-packed, no-registration-required videos.

Jeff just took down the “firewall” that was hiding three super high-value full-length training videos… they’re all on one page, and you don’t
need to opt-in to see them. You can watch them here:

Take care,


P.S. If you think these videos are awesome (and they are)… then you should definitely check out Jeff’s full-blown training:

Remember When the First Website Went Online?

Symbolic representation of the Arpanet as of S...

I remember when ARPANET turned into the Internet and the very first web site went online.  Ok, there’s no clear delineation where one stopped and the other one started, but I’ve been using whatever-it-was-called since 1981.

About a month ago, the organization who put the world’s very first web site online dug up a copy of the old site and put it back online. It was a very simple, text-only site and used the brand-new HTT Protocol to serve up pages. The source code for the browser and the server were both readily available and I grabbed them and built them on the UNIX machine I had in the basement. Very cool.

According to the statement on CERN‘s website, the URL they resurrected is the earliest copy of the 1992 link they could find.

“With few people having access to browsers — or to web servers so that they could in turn publish their own content — it must have taken a visionary leap of faith at the time to see why it was so exciting,” reads CERN’s statement.

More than 20 years later, the World Wide Web has become an incredible tool for communication and information. Wow. What will the next two decades hold for us?

Bing’s Search Results Include Five Times As Much Malware as Google

Google Search Coupon: 1 FREE Google Search

Searches on Bing returned five times more links to malicious websites than Google searches, according to an 18-month study from German independent testing lab AV-Test.

The study concluded that while all the search engines the lab evaluated delivered malware, Google delivered the least. It was followed by Bing, which returned five times as many malware sites than Google. Yandex, the Russian website, delivered 10 times as many malicious sites.

To move their malware-ridden spawn to the top of Google’s search results, the bad guys are using tried and true search engine optimization tactics—the very same used by corporations and bloggers.  According to AV-Test, the attackers use a very simple trick, “they first create a multitude of small websites and blogs before selecting the most frequently used search terms from top news stories and using backlinks to optimise these terms for search engines.”

The study went on to say that users “are the least suspicious” when they see a search result attached to a hot news story. More troublingly, AV-Test reports that sites with Trojans or other malware are returned as “top” results.

Amazon Cloud Outage Finally Explained

Turns out major web sites were knocked off-the-air by an upgrade Amazon was performing to its EC2/EBS service. Last Thursday’s outage caused sites including Foursquare, Reddit and Quora to go offline, some for days.  Thousands of smaller web sites were off-line for much longer.

A statement on Amazon’s website said: “We know how critical our services are to our customers’ businesses and we will do everything we can to learn from this event and use it to drive improvement across our services.”

Amazon promised to “spend many hours over the coming days and weeks improving our understanding of the details of the various parts of this event and determining how to make changes to improve our services and processes”.

Amazon has released a technical explanation of the problem and their current fixes that are in place.
