I've just released CaRP/WP, a free WordPress plugin that makes it easy to add auto-updating content to your WordPress posts, including keyword-based Amazon.com best sellers affiliate links. Update: It can display YouTube video feeds too. See examples of both below.

The plugin uses CaRP, my RSS to HTML converter script (free and commercial versions available),...

The other day, I shot my first YouTube video, a song for Russell Brunson, who I'm "stalking" on my Guru-Stalker.com website (defunct). It's not the first video I've ever made -- just the first for YouTube.

I learned a little something about video in the process. The sound for the video was pretty flat --...

I've just put together a new deal where you can get free copies of Impact Web Audio and List Mailer GT Pro with purchase of "Confessions of a Lazy Super Affiliate".

The offer page is also an example of how to use External Pop and Fast JV for affiliate promotions.

When I say you've got...

I read a post by Jonathan Leger today about the SEO benefits of an affiliate program, in which he recommends that merchants do a permanent redirect from the page their affiliates link to to their sales page (for example, from http://www.geckotribe.com/rss/carp/?assoc=1 to http://www.geckotribe.com/rss/carp/ -- ie., just remove the affiliate ID).

A few months ago, I decided to offer multi-month payment plans for a few of my products. The program seemed to be a success as a few sales came on in the plans. But since then, a few customers have, without a word to me, canceled the remaining payments.

In PayPal's system, the customer is...

I registered Guru-Stalker.com a few days ago, and already (at least temporarily), it owns the numbers one and two spots on Google for "guru stalker" (out of 280,000 results) and "guru stalking" (164,000 results), as well as several less common search terms like "Russell Brunson stalker", "Russell Brunson stalking", "Russell Brunson stalk".
