Cligs: TinyURL Plus Analytics

Labels: ,

I was twittering two days ago, following the followed, and I found this URL shortening service along the way. It's called Cligs. According to its website, its name happen to came from the word clicks with a g (as in go) pronounced at the end. I see it as a creative term actually, and it really caught my attention because of its similarity to tinyURL but with one BIG difference - free analytics.

Cligs is a very useful tool in converting your long URLs into short ones - very much needed when space is a hot resource! It's best to use in your twitter link updates, email and blog links, and even hiding your affiliate links. On top of these, Cligs can give you a detailed traffic analysis and information about your created short URLs like

  • Total number of hits
  • Referral statistics
  • Recent mentions of the clig itself on twitter
  • Recent links (mentions) of the clig on blogs
  • Recent web links to the clig
  • Recent mentions of the destination URL on twitter
  • Recent blog links to the destination
  • Recent blog links to the destination
  • Recent web links to the destination
  • Delicious bookmarks of the destination
  • Total number of links to the destination

I created an account and started to create my own cligs, and its giving me a birds-eye view of my links everyday, something I have been looking for. You can also sign-up at the website for FREE and start making your own cligs and see how useful it will work to you. Or you can read more about the The Blog of Cligs for more information on how it works.

My First dNeero Payment

Labels: ,

I'm expecting this payment from dNeero today. This morning, I got $19.94 in my account - product of four months of being a dNeero-ite. I only need just a few more cents until I reach the payout.

And fortunately, I have one discussion waiting to get approved for its fifth day of getting impressions in my blog. It's not a problem because my blog already got a decent number of visitors everyday. I will earn $0.35 with this one today!

About 5PM, as I finish my work for today, my email client pops a message and it says dNeero Cash Award for Me. I have been awarded cash for joining the conversation Your Eyes, Your Mind ... Primetime TV - Fall 2008. I checked my dNeero account and its confirmed I got an additional $0.35 making a total of $20.29. I reached the payout.

I was still skeptical that time if I 'll have the money today. But about an hour ago, my email client pops again, and what do you know... It came from Paypal. dNeero really proved their word, We will pay your Paypal account whenever you accrue $20. No questions ask. No waiting for the calendar quarters.

The image below is the snapshot of the email I received from Paypal. I just want to share with you guys and you might want to consider doing what I did.

If you want to join dNeero I'll be happy to refer and help you along the way. Just click the dNeero logo below.

Here are some other dNeero conversations this week.

To Free Rice! Anyone?


What if just knowing what a word meant could help feed hungry people around the world? - Washington Post

Just one question. Can you think of any game which can improve your vocabulary and help in feeding hungry people around the world?

Any answers? Well I have one!

Say hello to Freerice.com. They host a simple game - a game to improve your vocabulary. For each word you get right, they will donate 20 grains of rice through the UN World Food Program to help end hunger.

Freerice.com Vocabulary Game
Here is how it works. When you play the game, sponsor banners appear on the bottom of your screen. The money generated by these banners is then used to buy the rice. So by playing, you generate the money that pays for the rice and learn new words as well.

I tried the game for a while now and I have donated a little over 1000 grains of rice! I don't know if that amount can feed a hungry child (because I don't count the rice I'm eating... lol). But consider if this game is played by thousands of people, that could make a BIG difference.

So, are you feeling guilty about wasting time on your computer's solitaire? Join the growing guilt-free multitude at FreeRice.com, an online game with redeeming social value.

WARNING: This game may make you smarter. It may improve your speaking, writing, thinking, grades and job performance!

Homepages Friends:Get Paid to Search Yahoo!

Labels: ,

Homepages Friends - This site is one lovely little earner. You can make a little extra cash just by doing what you already do - searching the internet.

How does this work?

"Get paid to search."

Homepages Friends is a get-paid-to-search site with Yahoo! Search behind as the search provider. They split the advertising revenue generated on bona fide searches with their members 50/50.

What do you do?
"You search and you earn."

In order to use it, you need to have either Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer 7 installed. You can download them from a link on their site.

When you sign up in the site, you will be asked to add to your browsers search box a search plug-in of their own. When you use the search box, it will return results from Yahoo! and you will earn a few cents in return.

How much can you earn?
"If you thought you will get rich from this, please get real!"

You will get 1 pence (~$0.02) per search which is not bad. I average about 20 - 30 searches everyday from my work, blogging, hobbies, etc. You can do more because there's no limit on the number of searches you can do.

25 searches x $0.02 cents = $0.50 per day

In theory, you will earn $15.0 a month just by yourself. You can earn more by referring friends to the site.

If you’re a student, blogger or a researcher, this is definitely worth considering. At least try it out for a while and if it doesn't work for you, what have you lost?

Sign up for Homepages Friends and earn money while you search.
