Refer users to new products to generate more revenue

I adopted the following article from the Google Adsense Help Center in order to help myself and others get some info on how to generate more revenue from referral Google referral products.Hopefully we can gain some useful tips and input from it.

Referrals is a feature of AdSense that allows you to increase your revenue while increasing your users' awareness of useful products and services. By adding a referral button to your site, you can direct users to products like AdSense, AdWords, and Firefox with Google Toolbar. When your referral connects a user to one of our referral products, you can generate more earnings while helping new web publishers improve their internet experience.

Our step-by-step instructions make it easy to add a referral to your site in minutes. Note that the referral products available to you may vary depending on your location or language - you can find a full list of the referral products available for you by visiting the AdSense Setup tab and choosing Referrals as the product.

Tips for successful referrals:

  1. Actively endorse the products you refer. Unlike with AdSense for content ads, we encourage you to endorse referral products by calling attention to the button or text link. If you believe in the quality of the product that you're referring, feel free to let your users know! Of course, in line with our policies, you may not click your own ads nor encourage conversions for deceitful reasons.
  2. Treat referral units as site content rather than traditional ad space. By integrating text links or buttons into related content on your page, you can improve the experience users have on your site, enabling them to easily find the referral buttons you discuss in your content.
  3. Experiment. Try various text links and button designs to see which performs best on your site. Our policies allow you to place one referral unit per product, for up to four products total, on any given page.
  4. Customize your text links. Our policies allow publishers to alter the font and size of the text link using standard HTML "font" tags around the link. However, the font size changes must be reasonably necessary to match the theme of the site. Unreasonable or abusive changes will constitute a violation of our program policies.
  5. Choose relevant products to refer. For example, if you have a site about blogging or web hosting, an AdSense referral unit may work best on your site. The referral product that is most relevant to the content of your site will always perform best.
  6. Rotate referral units when you rotate content. Always check to see that the relevance of your referral unit is not diminished by your change in content.

Apple - iPhone

I just cannot resist to have the Apple - iPhone inside my blog. And for that I just include the latest and newest gadget toy handphone from Apple here. I wonder when can I own one of it. Perhaps after receiving my bonus!!!


Last November, I went to MAHA EXPO 2006 (Malaysia Agriculture Holticulture Agrotourism) which was located in MARDI (Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute), Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia. Well, I went there not for official business, but rather gathering some information and adding up some new and fresh knowledge inside my brain cell about the agro-bio industry. There were thousands of people pouring into the exhibition which is the largest in Asia. It was very difficult for me to walk my way through the exhibition booth. I learn some new technology on growing some crops, got myself some info about the available loans and supports for interested parties who want to developt the agricultural business, and lots of more informations. It's basically a growing exciting sector to venture. On overall, i can say that MOHA 2006 is a very brilliant event conducted by the Malaysia's Ministry of Agriculture (MOA), but it definitely need to improve few things such as handling such a huge
gigantic visitors and directions etc.

Apple iPhone

This is a very interesting new cool toy. In Malaysia, rumours said thst it will be around RM 2046 before tax, for 8GB version. The 4GB version is at a slightly lower price. I can't wait to own one.

Macworld 2007 Apple announced the long-awaited iPhone - a widescreen iPod, a mobile phone, a mobile Internet terminal, a digital camera and a portable PIM organizer all-in-one. Some of the most exciting features of the iPhone include the OS X it runs on and touchscreen control with multi-finger gestures with no need for a stylus whatsoever.

Apple iPhone

Equipped with 4 or 8GB of integrated memory, the Apple iPhone has got more than the needed storage space to bring your photos, videos and music to life straight into your palm. It's much like iPod in that respect and features a large 3.5" touchscreen TFT display with a resolution of 320x480 pixels. But unlike an iPod it can take pictures with the integrated 2 megapixel camera. It even has an accellerometer which allows it to tell whether you are holding the device in landscape or portrait mode so that it can turn the display orientation correspondingly. And all that mobile virtuosity comes at the meager thickness of 11.6 mm.

A quad-band GSM/EDGE mobile (sorry, no 3G/HSDPA support), the iPhone is a truly amazing smartphone that can not only make and receive calls, but can also store your contacts, tasks, notes, calendar events, etc., as well as synchronize them seamlessly with the PC. If that's not enough the device also has Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) and Bluetooth 2.0 support. Some sweet highlights of the device are the Proximity sensor, which turns the display off when you lift the iPhone to your ear, as well as the Ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the display's brightness.

The other strengths of this multimedia device are more or less Internet-oriented, since the iPhone offers exceptional web browsing capabilities thanks to the Safari web browser with integrated Google search plus the Google Maps application that can take you all over the world - unfortunately without a GPS receiver. The user experience can be further enhanced through the use of various widgets, well-known and loved by all users of the Mac OS X.

Apple would be offering the iPhone to end customers in USA through the Cingular networks. Unfortunately, the device is expected to become commercially available in June 2007 only after it's approved by the FCC. Market availability in Europe is expected no sooner than Q4 2007, and as late as early 2008 in Asia. Initial pricing in Cingular networks will be 499$ for the 4GB model and 599$ for the 8GB one - both with a two-year contract.

Good Blog Not Easy to Create

It's not going to be easy for me to create a successful blog that have many loyal readers. I have to keep faith and confidence that I can do it. I'm learning a lot of stuff inside the cyber world. I do not mind exploring the internet and learn some SEO stuff as well as some interesting gadgets. But the problem is I cannot stand looking at the monitor for so long. It really irritate my eyes. I need to do something to release the tension in my eyes.

I have seen some other blogs using the blogger platform which is really catchy, interesting amd neat as well. Blogging Secret is one kind of blog that attracts my attention because of two reasons: One is because it has three column, platform looks like wordpress, while the second one is because of it has a lot of subsriber/reader within a short period of time. It has really good content and I'm trying my best to adsorb his content.

Two days ago, I also joint mybloglog. It is a bloggers community in the virtual world. I registered myself and set Chemical Engineering World as my official blog inside mybloglog. I know that maybe I'm considered quite late in joining mybloglog. But, it really does not matter as long as I found that I get some traffic to my blog. I hope more bloggers will join my community and find my sites interesting. Well, I hope so. It's really my journey to be a successful part time blogger.

My Tibia & Fibula Condition

It’s already four days, since the accident occurred (I wrote this post inside my word on Saturday doc because i don't have the internet line temporarily). After the wound dressing last Thursday, the stitches are now exposed. The wound and stitches need to be dried and oxidized but precaution still need to be taken. However, on Friday morning, my left foot became swelling. And I found it a little bit difficult and uncomfortable to walk compared from previous days. No wonder the doctor gave me additional 5 days MC for me. When the doctor initially mentioned “5 days”, I was surprised. However, now I know that the 5 days are really required for me to heal completely. I hope I can have a speedy recovery. I cannot see my ankle!!! because of swelling.

Blog Motivation

I’m so excited to read blog. I really think he is a great and successful blogger. He has a very interesting, informative and casual blog. I cannot deny that I envy his blog. I want to have similar achievement like he has in the blogging world. His blog and his effort motivates me to be a better blogger. That shall be part of my 2007 New Year resolution. I hope everybody following my blog will benefit from it. I would also welcome any comments and suggestion to improve my blog. Good luck Zaki…

Rest and Heal

Due to the injury that I had yesterday, I decided not to go to work. The doctor gave me 3 days MC. Therefore, I shall continue work on Friday. It’s difficult for me to take my bath because the bandage on my left foot should not be wet. I must keep it clean & dry before my next visit to Hospital Penawar on Friday. I informed what happened yesterday to my senior colleague and my bos. My colleague understood the situation and asked me to rest. However, I was surprised because my bos asked me whether I can drive or not. He wants me to go to work!!! I don’t know what he was thinking. I have two deep cut in my left leg tibia. The bottom has 3 stitches, while the upper one has 6 internal stitches and 7 external stitches. So, now, I’m at home, resting with my kids, consuming some antibiotics and some pain killer pills. I hope the wound can be better as soon as possible.

Life & Death

Today, I met an accident in my work place. it hurt me really bed. I have 2 serious wounds on my left leg. Went to the hospital and get some medical attention. While I was waiting to be stitch by the doctor in the emergency ward, a car suddenly park outside the emergency ward and sounded the horn vigorously. A 15 year old boy was unconsious and immedietly brougth inside the emergency ward. His relative/friends, i did not know, rush in and asked the doctor to help. I was pushed a side for a while. The doctor and his medical staff check the boy. I watch and heard everything. And then, the moment that we fear most happened. The boy was declared death after 2-3 minutes. It happen before my eyes. His relative/friends shouted and cried loudly finding hard to accept the death of the boy. I kept quite. The doctor told me that, most of the time, the person that die is the one who is normally healthy. They'll die from accident. In this case the boy health is ok but a very fierce asthma suddenly attacked him. And it's too late for treatment.

What a night I experience....
