ES Chart

I am looking into getting into ANTI-social media by revamping my website at
Anyone interested?

2011 changes everything.

my Elliott wave analysis (looking at a 3 year DJIA chart) is showing me that a final wave v high is imminent. DJIA just above 12,000 (around 12,200) should mark the top. When the DJIA tops it should also mark a great shorting opportunity in gold and silver.

"DMD is highly dependent on search optimization and will quickly modify what it needs to to stay ahead of Google." what happens when Google downgrades any website that hasn't been in service for more than a year or two with on-topic content? I would place my bet on Google and short Demand Media.

Their business model will work great if you stay "below the radar" but by going public, they are about to move onto Google's radar screen in a big way. I suspect they're giggling over at Google waiting for this one to hit the market...


jeff, so far the Google response seems tepid: an opt in where readers have to say they feel spammed. How many will comply? Almost all will just click away ... Round One to DMD.


I notice Demand Media owns eHow and I find these kinds of sites deliver nothing of value. They clutter up search results with poor quality information, yet they always seem to show up near the top. I always got the impression the site was basically a bunch of ads with some poor quality copy attached - now I know why.

Compare to, or - if you know anything about hiking / climbing / mountaineering you will understand immediately how inferior is.

A similar test you might like to try is to look up something in which you have some expertise on eHow. You very quickly realise how poor quality the material is and never bother going back - how sustainable is that business model?

Still, given the popularity of pointless products that serve no purpose that I can see (iPad, 3D movies) I have to say I am a terrible judge of what will be successful and what will not.

What I would like Google to do, is allow me to simply filter out those sites.



"DMD is a next generation style content site, which mass-produces sites based on hot keywords."

So their prime objective is to make a search function inefficient?

Hopefully they are just a flash in the pan.


Event, a lot of folk think of DMD and related synthetic web site creators as second generation of prior domain squattors, and dislike them both.

Just another day when the thought "EWI is an excellent contrary indicator" comes to mind.

After extending the Bush Tax cuts, lowering the Estate Tax, lowering the payroll tax rate from 6.2 down to 4.2% - - - Obama now wants to cut the Corporate Tax rate! And here I thought he was a liberal, socialist, communist!

BHO is a politician and is working on 2012 now. He has to move to the center in order for him to have any shot at getting re-elected.

The guy posting these comments about Obama is a superfically-minded dumbass who probably couldn't play chess to save his life. Expecting him to understand something as complex as politics is like expecting a pig to sing opera.

As the saying goes, I only wish stupidity were painful.

the DMD question is whether they will be the hood ornament or the headstone for the "useless content bubble" that has plagued the internet for decades. Google wants and needs relevant content, even if it is bad and nearly useless. Now they need it even more since the public has come down with "ad blindness" on its search page results. "Ad blindness" is a contagion ,,,, seriously. It's alot like the underwhelming reaction to Oblahblah's sotu ,,,, as America and the rest of the world is turning a deaf ear to his politics of "all speech and no cattle(action)".

DMD is not going to get slapped by Google because of the traffic they generate. They get it about Google. Mediocrity of content is okay with Google, as long as they can keep it coming. In fact, DMD is doing exactly what Google wants, creating content that gets eyeballs. The Google content network is seemingly huge but is actually relatively small in the ad networks biz. And, Google has created this situation for themselves and they are seen as thriving on their dominance in search.

Google is the problem without a 'solution bot' ,,,, yet. They are dominating their corner but they've painted themselves into it, and the paint ain't drying.

You remember when I asked about click-throughs and income generated from your prechter affilate ads. Good times vs. bad times ,,,, that's the very thing that Arianna, "slope" and "alpha" are doing with their aggregating of bloggers for ,,,, ad revenue from eyeballs ,,,, even if nobody clicks on an ad. I'm pretty sure Arianna doesn't pay any of their bloggers. The aggregators all still make money with impression counts and adsense.

You have seen it too, I'm sure, with posts that get backlinks on a temporarily "hot search topic".

The DMD game is a quant's game of SEO combined with speed of indexing for short and long tail keywords that generate clicks with text, images, and video. And, people thought Google was loony for buying YouTube! Ha! DMD knows how to optimize that.

DMD would not want your content, Yel. You're too slow and too rich for their standards! :)) Your content sucks for lack of optimized keywords of hot topics, outside of the narrow sliver of the financially-weighted niches and range of topics you are interested in.

But if you wanted to write about dog training or viagra or self-help or even Oprah ,,,, well, I'm sure DMD might want your 300 words and be glad to pay you $30 pieces of silver. :)

Don't get me wrong, e-commerce of all sorts is still a nascent industry (like the stone age for the internet) that most businesses or industries have yet to really master or understand. But, you know that.

I'm guessing DMD is a hood ornament but never venerable as an institution, but eventually memorialized as a failed model ,,,, unless they adapt to Google slaps and future advanced bots. Or, human bots ,,,, like the thousands employed by goog in India.

that's my 2 cents on DMD.

btw, counselor ,,,, if there are squattors, are there squatees? :)


wave, good commentary. wonder how you reviewed 8-track when it first appeared?

This Top 10 franchises for 2011 list is different from most in that I looked at how much money a franchise owner could make as a first priority. Most lists are compiled based on how many franchises a company has opened and while that’s important I don’t think you can pay to send your son or daughter to college with that statistic.
