Two Visit Domains About to Drop

Posted on August 28th, 2010 by AndrewHazenCom  |  No Comments »

I just saw that VisitOrlando.info and VisitBoston.info are about to become available….I know, I know they are .info but that doesn’t mean they cannot rank well and achieve organic search rankings….

With these sites, you can setup a decent directory and monetize with local advertisers and affiliates; I strongly suggest having salespeople on the street who you pay high commissions to….we are starting to do the same with VisitDisneyland.com and PalmBeach.us

Good luck and let me know if you grab any of these domains….

Golfer Jim Furyk Gets Disqualified from Pro-Am Because of Oversleeping

Posted on August 27th, 2010 by AndrewHazenCom  |  No Comments »

There’s no question that the PGA Tour is one of the most idolized golf tournaments in existence. Some golfers would give their left arm just for a chance to play at the PGA Tour. Others, like Jim Furyk, would prefer to sleep in.

Jim Furyk’s cell phone alarm did not go off Wed. morning making him late for his pro-am tee time at the Barclays, the first of four FedEx playoff events. According to the PGA Tour rules, if you don’t participate in the pro-am you are automatically disqualified from the PGA Tour. Here are the sequence of events that took place during Jim’s hectic morning (via Yahoo.com):

  • Furyk woke up at 7:23 AM, 7 minutes before his official tee time.
  • Jim threw on whatever clothers were lying around and arrived 12 minutes later.
  • There was a shotgun start at 7:30 AM and Jim was starting at the 11th hole making it nearly impossible for him to make it on time (and he didn’t).

Fortunately for Furyk, he sits at #3 in the current standings and is expected not to fall too far below the standings because of today. Still, you bet that for round #2, Jim will be hiring every wake up call service in America.

Obviously, Jim did not get his mattress from Sleepy’s nor 1800Mattress.com as this would never have happened with a great night’s sleep!!

Now see who else has Been Caught Sleeping

Facebook is Going Places with Check-In Offering

Posted on August 19th, 2010 by AndrewHazenCom  |  No Comments »

Facebook launched a feature Wednesday evening allowing members to share real-life locations with online friends, as expected. The feature, Places, along with an iPhone app, rolls out in the U.S. first, but the plan is to launch the app in other countries and on other smartphones.

The feature requires using the new iPhone application or logging into the touch.facebook.com smartphone site on a phone that supports GPS auto-location. The product has been in a test phase for the past several months.

From Facebook’s headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO and founder, explained how Places helps members share their location, allows them to see who’s around them, and provides a discovery tool for new businesses nearby.

This should play out very interesting once you start “bumping into” ex-lovers, bosses, etc.; especially when you are with your spouse and family!! Of course the Check-In offering is optional….be careful!
