Fingers Crossed for some traffic, Dog Adoption Guide, or all of these are my sites and ideas. I updated the sales page on to market my Dog Adoption Guide. Included in the site is a place for people to register for a e-newsletter I will be sending out to people who are interested in dogs.

I put new ads on Google, in hopes of doing some split testing. For all of you non Internet Marketer people, that means I run two different ads to see which one pulls in the most traffic. The winning ad will get changed slightly and the winning original ad and the new ad will run. I will do this until my click thru rate is something over 5%. Again for all of you non Internet Market readers, click thru rate is the number of times your ad shows (when people search for a specific word or phrase in Google) divided by the number of times your ad is clicked on.

Internet Market standard is around 2% to 5%. Depending on the keyword I use, my rate is as high as %25, however, this is for very few searchs on a keyword.

Even Internet Marketers Need to Eat

Like the headline reads, even in Internet marketing we get hungry. Sitting in front of the computer all day, writing and analyzing, really can build an appetite.

A friend of mine calls me a "food nerd". I know it is meant as a compliment because I prefer the great food, not just good food. Finding great food is harder than it sounds.

The first ingredient in great food is freshness, where I live that is nearly impossible to find even at $8 a pound. An example would be fresh ginger. Many of you reading are thinking fresh ginger when will I ever use that?

The second ingredient in great food is sharing. Great food always tastes better to have someone to share it with. Think about your favorite foods, do you enjoy them more by yourself or when you have someone to share them with?

The last ingredient in great food is a great recipe. Growing up my mom didn't use a recipe, she would open a box and add meat. As my experience with food grew, I learned there was a better and healthier way to prepare your food. Since I wasn't taught to cook, just to warm food up, I find using a recipe helps me to be successful in the kitchen. Most chefs don't use a recipe, however I prefer to use them, and am quite successful when I do.

This recipe is for my sister Heather. She also enjoys great food and I hope that she enjoys this recipe as much as I have. Here is the copykat recipe for PF Chang's Mongolian Beef I use.

Recipe Zaar receives decent traffic as purported by If this recipe is any indication of the quality of their recipes, you may want to download several of them just.

Enjoy your day, and enjoy every meal!
