What is Media Buying anyway?

Well it all depends on what industry you are in (for example in the porn industry, media buying can be buying movies and/or picture sets from producers of the content); however as a general rule media buying is display advertising like banners, and text ads you see on sites everywhere.

Buying traffic direct vs relying on Google’s organic search results is a must for any business.

Take it from me, I was big time into SEO and ranking websites, but ever since January 4th, 2013 google has come out with a new algo update every 2 weeks or so making it harder than ever to grow a company based on search engine traffic alone.

Are You Hungry?

Typical sarcastic comment made by Canadians/Americans and other English native speakers when they ask, where are you from and you answer – Hungary. Right away, they say are you Hungry? HA HA HA, funny!!! …not.

What about the poor Turks then? “Where are you from?….TURKEY” … hahahaha are you a TURKEY? … gotta love these things

Internet Balloons By Google, Now Internet.Org by Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook)??? GIVE ME A BREAK

Internet Balloons By Google, Now Internet.Org by Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook)??? GIVE ME A BREAK

It has hit news stands, Mark Zuckerberg wants to connect the 2/3rd of the world population who presently has no access to internet ONLINE. WOW! He’s late though, a few months ago Google Announced Balloons all over Africa to bring internet to the masses…. Microsoft boss, Bill Gates criticized it — why? Because he says big companies should worry about helping hungry people, rather than giving them internet first.

Google, Facebook, and all other Public ally traded money hungry SOBs of corporations have no other obligations, than to report an increase in profits every 3 months! BUT, wait — they are running out of people to show ads to; average joe’s and jane’s to milk for every last dying cent — so what engenius plan do they come up with?? GET EVERYONE IN THE WORLD CONNECTED, BRING FREE INTERNET TO THE MASSES!!

Yea it all sounds nice, and all that — but if you look deep enough, they aren’t doing this because of their kind warmheartedness, rather because they have to REPORT PROFIT EARNINGS INCREASES every 3 months OR ELSE!! and the only way to do that is to have more visitors, more people using their product(s).

Genius plan, nicely packaged, but the real meaning behind it is dark, inconsiderate and SELFISH.

UPDATE 8/23/2013Read This – the covers are off, my hunch was right, now they wrote a story about it. “You could be generous and call this enlightened self-interest, but more likely, Internet.org is a canny business move dressed up to sound like charity.

How to update SmartCJ to latest version via SSH

run following commands in SSH

cd /path_to_scj/admin
env HTTP_HOST=yourdomain.com php update.php

Multidomain Update
You can create a file with all your domains

cd /path_to_domain/scj/admin; env HTTP_HOST=yourdomain.com php update.php
cd /path_to_domain2/scj/admin; env HTTP_HOST=yourdomain2.com php update.php

and so on and run it in SSH

sh update.sh
This way you can update all domains at once.

Note: update script doesn’t overwrite index.php or any other files at the root of your domain. So you have to copy index.php (if you use it). If you don’t want to do it each time you have 2 options:

add to update.sh something like “cp ../cgi/index.php ../../index.php ”
or create a symlink to original scj/cgi/index.php

Update rollback
There’s no built-in update rollback. The only chance is if you have created backup. Note, if you just restored mysql db – it won’t help caz you still have the same files.
