A week or so ago, I introduced you to the Facebook Graph API using PHP.
Although the Facebook Graph API can be used to retrieve a trove of wide-ranging data, I specifically showed you step-by-step how to retrieve the total count for a unique URL’s likes, shares, and comments.
A week or so ago, I was scanning my Twitter profile feed in search of another tweet when I saw a slew of posts with the title “Check out this link” followed by a Facebook link.
Each tweet had the same title but different link associations. At first I thought my account had maybe been hacked.
Not wanting to click the link that followed “Check out this link”, I created a controlled virtual environment to view the link from to control it should it be a virus, malware or ransomware.
Even though it was posted on Twitter, one can’t take chances with blindly clicking links.
Nevertheless, I clicked the link only to be taken to one of my daily expired auction pages. Then, I had an aha moment. Continue reading
A few weeks ago, one of my many websites crossed the thousand like club for Facebook likes.
It was a time to celebrate! Why?
Well, this particular website is a local and somewhat a hyper micro-niche. To be honest, I’m surprised and elated this website has 1000+ likes.
Nevertheless, crossing the 1000+ Facebook like club renders the like button differently.
Instead of being able to now see that there are 1,024 likes, the Facebook like button for this specific website now only shows “1K”.
And because I don’t have a Facebook Fan, Business, or Profile page associated with this website, this adds yet another degree of difficulty in attempting to understand exactly how many likes, shares, and comments exist for website URL, also known as website domain name. Continue reading
Amidst big brands such as Amazon, Walmart, and the list goes on, small businesses account for quite a bit of market share.
Google estimates that there are approximately 115 million small businesses in the world while the United States of Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy estimates that there are 28.8 million businesses in the US alone.
Of course, there’s much discussion to be had pertaining to what specific attributes must be realized to qualify as a small business. But I’m not writing to debate those finer points.
With both numbers on the rise annually, one has to wonder how small businesses are able to affordably differentiate themselves, especially when considering small businesses with a strict local or hyper-local presence.
How many oil change, dog grooming, nail salon and other local-centric business services do you pass daily going to and fro?
If you’re like me, then you’re likely surrounded by a growing number of small businesses, varying in name, peddling similar services in hopes that a potential customer remembers their business when the need arises.
Hoping that customers remember your business in a sea of competitive small businesses offerings is not a sound plan for existing or growing local market share.
But here’s something to ponder. Would you be interested in uniquely differentiating your business from the competition using an emoji domain? Continue reading
When new to domaining, there can often be a tendency to emotionally bid and buy expired domain names.
You peruse the list and spot a desirable expired domain name that looks too good to be true.
You question yourself. How did this domain manage to slip through the cracks and off the radar of daily domain bidders in expired auction without a single bid?
The stars must have aligned for this expired domain and I to be united sings the voices in your head.
You buy the expired domain name thinking of the massive returns you’ll soon realize by developing or flipping.
Truth be told, we all have likely been down the path only to drop and not renew those domain gems we thought to have made us a fortune.
Don’t lose hope though. Today, I’m sharing with you a bit of insight to help you spot trending expiring domains that are undervalued. Continue reading
It’s been a minute since I tackled automating blog posts to social networks.

Instagram is a whole different beast of a social network in comparison to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networks. And here’s why I think so… Continue reading
You’re likely a bit perplexed by the title, right?
