Tracking different advertising campaigns » Post #2

Sat Aug 04, 2012 08:15 in General Talk

Here is the explanation of the "Campaign" feature.

Let's say you want to promote your ClixSense affiliate link on two different sites. Instead of using your regular referral link, you can set up two different campaign links to each of them. In this way, you will be able to see which site produces better results for you.

E.g. You want to promote your ClixSense affiliate link on ABC.com and XYZ.com

Then instead of your regular affiliate link which is : clixsense.com/?xxxxxx
you could do this.

Link for advertising on ABC.com : clixsense.com/?xxxxxx&ABC

Link for advertising on XYZ.com : clixsense.com/?xxxxxx&XYZ

Then use each link on the sites you want to promote.
Both clicks and leads (sign-ups) will be counted for you and thus you will be able to judge which advertising campaign was better.

Kathyl, the timer automatically starts 10 seconds after you solve the cat captcha irrespective of whether the site has finished loading or not.
If the page loads completely before those 10 seconds, then the timer starts immediately.

I think this is a fair system as you need to see this from the advertiser's perspective also. You need to give atleast some time for the ad to load else most of the ads we will be clicking would be blank pages.

Anyone downloaded Mountain Lion? » Post #31

Adium...yes now I remember that green bird. I had Adium installed for a long time but I never used it so I removed it.

You can't put applications in there because Growl does that automatically if it supports it.
Here are the list of applications which are supported by Growl - Growl - Applications

As for the display preview, it should show up when you click the Preview button. Try disabling it, restarting your computer and enabling it back to see if it works.
If not then you might have to uninstall and then re-install it again.

Whats the green bird? Hearing it for the first time :roll:

Click the Paw icon on the top menu bar and click "open Growl Preferences". Or go to System Preferences and click on Growl.
Then you will see a screen like this.



Make sure "Hide all notificiations" is unchecked.



In the next tab which says "Applications" , you can choose which applications you want to receive notifications from. If you don't want notifications from any application, simply uncheck it.

In the next tab which says "Display Options" you can customize how you want to notifications to appear - the look, the time for which it should display, etc.
There is a preview button so adjust and customize it to whichever one you find good to look at.




The "Network" tab is for forwarding notifications to another computer and I don't need it. Never used it so can't help you out on that.

All set and done. Now sit and back and get notifications from programs running in the background without them intruding your work.

I was so satisfied with v1.2 that I purchased v1.3 from the AppStore for $1.99
But, v1.3 had all sorts of problems and didn't work with Opera which I use extensively. So I uninstalled it and reinstalled v1.2

So you see, its really easy to setup Growl :D

No, don't download the paid version. I think its v1.3
The paid one is totally crap. The free one (v1.2) is much better.
Just do a Google search for "Growl v1.2" and you'll find that MacUpdate or Cnet has the 1.2 version for download.

Growl is basically a notification center. It gives pop-ups when ever one of your background applications has some updates, finishes some work.

Examples :
There is an update for Firefox.
A download has been completed on Opera.
An add-on extension has an update or has been updated.
You have received an email.
CleanMyMac has finished cleaning your Mac.

If you are not interested in such notifications, then simply uninstall Growl.

Sorry for my absence Valerie.
I had sent my MacBook to the service center to get that internal mic fixed. Took them 5 days as they don't have a single part in stock. Worst part is that they kept my laptop for those 5 days while the part was shipped. :x

Yes, check out Growl and let me know if you need help.

Glad that Mountain Lion seems to have solved a few problems for you. But, I don't see anything worth in it to shell out $20 for an upgrade. Lion was much better for me.

As for that three lines on the top right hand corner, its the Notification Center. Just go to the System Preferences to customize it. Again its pretty much useless for me.

Growl is one of my favorite apps. Its great to get notifications from other programs without intruding my work.
Try and see if you like it.
If still you don't like it, then you can uninstall it. Here is the guide : Growl - Removing Growl

And I just realized another cool feature Apple removed. On Mountain Lion the menu bar only shows the battery percentage remaining. On Lion it used to show both - time and % remaining.
And I read that its not coming back :twisted:
>> Mountain Lion is coming, what should you know that you don’t yet know?

All in all Mountain Lion is a big let down for me.

I have to agree Valerie. Its just a cover up from Apple. Nothing much has changed and its feels like I have been ripped off $20.
Apart from Notes, I am not going to use any of the new stuff they added.

Also I had high expectations from the Notification Center and thought that it would be a replacement to Growl. But, what do I see here.... Only alerts from Calendar, Facetime, Game Center, Mail, Messages, Reminder and Safari will be shown in the Notification Center :|

The only useful stuff added is Dictation which resembles Siri. But, I still have to test it if it recognizes my voice else it too will be useless.

Here is another issue. Parallels 7 is not working anymore. But, there is a solution on their website. Just download the latest version and install it and it will work : KB Parallels

I see Software Update has been merged into the MacApp store which is pretty cool. Makes things easier.

For those who love to backups here is something important for you.
Download Mountain Lion but don't install it immediately. Go to the Application folder and find the Install Mac OS X Mountain Lion.app icon. Right click it and click "Show Package Contents".
Then click on the folder named "SharedSupport". Inside that you will find 2 files - InstallESD.dmg and OSInstall.mpkg

Copy InstallESD.dmg and save it to your hard drive for future use so that you don't have to download the entire 4.34 GB file in case you need to re-install the OS in future.
If you want you can burn it to a Disc too. Mountain Lion won't install on a single-layer DVD so you need a dual-layer DVD.

Here is a step-by-step method how to burn it to a disc or prepare a bootable external USB drive capable of installing OS X 10.8 : Egg Freckles | Installing Mountain Lion Clean


Let me give you a little hint in case you have multiple Macs but don't want to purchase the OS several times.
My sister too has a MacBook and she had around $65 iTunes credit while I had a mere $0.06
She too wanted to purchase Mountain Lion so she downloaded it through her Apple ID. And once it was finished, I copied the InstallESD.dmg to my Mac and installed it.
So we got Mountain Lions on each of our Macs but paid for just one :)
And before anyone says anything, let me tell you that it is legal. I am not sure but you can install Mac apps on I think 3 computers (or maybe 5).
As far as iOS apps go, you can install the app you have paid for on 5 different devices.

Seems like a bad co-incidence then. I purchased an extended warranty on July 10th so I don't have to pay anything for the repairs :)

I haven't checked out everything but on the whole it doesn't look much interesting to me. Mostly I see is that they've iOSified OSX.

I am still searching for Facebook integrated on Mountain Lion. Can't find it.


Edit : Did a Google search and found that Facebook integration will be available in the next update in Fall.

@Valerie and Tuberlance84,

I just installed Mountain Lion a few minutes back and I went ahead to try the Dictation feature. And all of a sudden, my internal mic is not working :(
Tried insterting an external mic which works. Looks like I need to take my MacBook Pro to a service center.
The mic was working perfectly on Lion but not on Mountain Lion.

Just want to know if its just me or are you two also having this issue?

It's pretty expensive for a cheese and pepperoni pizza - Do you have Pizza Hut chains in India ? :)

$10 for a 'large' pizza is pretty cheap compared to a similar one if you buy it in USA.
Yes, we do have Pizza Hut chains in India too.

Are Traffic Exchange sites viable ways to get refs » Post #5

Sat Jul 21, 2012 21:40 in General Talk

I have got a few referrals from Traffic Exchanges mainly EH4U.
The idea behind it is to geo-target your ad instead of showing it worldwide. You won't get tons of referrals but you should get a few.
And remember that its an 8-level affiliate program, so you never know if you one of those ref. machines are in your downline.

Much more is possible if you are completing Tasks and Offers.

$1.18 earned in the first week as a free member with 0 referrals is a great start to your ClixSense career.
Keep it up :clap:

I'll list it in a very simple way.

1. Login daily and click all the available ads. Install the toolbar to catch the ads throughout the day.
2. Upgrade your account to Premium.
3. Complete Tasks and Offers.
4. Refer people and earn commissions from their clicks and completed tasks and offers.

Also ClixSense is not a get-rich program and you will not make thousands of dollars every month.

I remember getting this same exact thing in a chain email years ago. In fact, I still have it in my inbox.

Here's another one about LIFE BEFORE COMPUTERS.

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
And a keyboard was on a piano!

Memory was something that you lost with age
And a CD was a bank account
And if you had a corrupted disk
It would hurt when you found out!


Compress was what you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You'd be in jail for a while!


Cutting, you did with a pocket knife,
Pasting, you did with glue.
The Web was where a spider lived
And a virus was the flu!
