This eBook was originally written by me (“Hubby” of GrownUpGeek.com) “anonymously” and distributed in PDF format. I decided that I would make Rev 4 of the ebook free and available here in the blog as an experiment in traffic-building. I’m not sure if a blog is the best place for an online ebook so I guess we’ll see how it works out..
Throughout the first two revisions of the ebook no mention was made of GrownUpGeek.com, my wife (the other half of the team) or the niche of our website. It was not until Rev 3 that we finally made the name of the site public. My wife is a bit paranoid about her privacy and the closer she gets to being an internet celebrity the further she shrinks into the background. I, on the other hand, don’t really care. I also like to think that I have a better grasp of how tiny our little sliver of internet fame really is.
There is nothing “new” in this ebook, no big secrets, no magic “system”, and no false promises that by reading my ebook you will become rich. Basically what you will find is a simple outline of what I did, the thought processes I went through, why I did the things I did, and why I think they worked – and remember: Just because this combination of ideas worked for me and for our website does not make me an expert. To this day I am still learning and still consider myself very much a beginner.
The intended audience for this ebook is new webmasters wanting to make a profit from their website(s), so there is a lot of emphasis earnings. However, even if your intent is not to make a profit with your website there are still plenty of ideas in the following pages on generating traffic to your website – nobody wants a website without visitors!
Dedication and some “thank you’s”;
I would like to dedicate this eBook to my wife, AKA “The Geek”. Without her ideas, motivation and support, our website and our success would have never happened. I would also like to thank all of our website visitors and members. Without them, their help, ideas, input, and their dedication to “The GuG”, we would not be as successful as we have been.
