My plans for racing in the Raid de Himalaya 2010 didn't quite work out due to a very non-avoidable reason: My only brother in law, decided to tie the knot on Oct 10th, which was the same day as the Raid was flagged off from Pinjore Garden, in India. I couldn't have chosen to go for the raid and miss my brother in law's wedding, but since both the events were not too far from each other, I was able to go and meet all old rally friends, and spectate the first stage of the Raid. It was very exciting.

Ok, so Affiliate Summit West 2013 is being organized in Las Vegas from January 13 - January 15 at Caesars Place. I am heading out with Mark Roth and the team. I will mostly be supporting our booth so you can find me at Offer Vault.
If you are at Vegas for ASW2013, make sure you stop by and say hi.
I have been a little slow in posting on this site in the past few months, but now you'll see me being more active. So currently besides building some new applications and writing cool scripts I am also venturing into 2 different spaces. Primarily working with Drupal 7 for a super great client which I will mention later, and second building and testing a project management system that allows me to hire workers around the world and get my projects done in reasonable deadlines and affordable prices.

All of those who know me well, know that I keep an eye open to find problem areas in internet marketing where I could possibly build either a solution, or simply find answers to such problems and share with my lists.
When marketing on Facebook, there were a few "I wish I had" tools or solutions that I know would have helped me, my clients, and my employers make the most of their social marketing efforts.
When Google+ was announced, I wasn't really surprised (obviously, I am sure this applies to majority of the people out there). Despite the fact that services like Google Wave and Google buzz, didn't really make it to the top of the social lists, we all were, in one way or the other, waiting for Google to launch their social network.
My previous months were totally action filled including a lot of travel including Calgary, Toronto, San Francisco, Washington, Las Vegas ;), and India.
A lot of these travels included a lot of learning experiences that would surely help me as I move forward and hopefully I will be able to share some valuable information with you all as well.
Currently I am working in New York City on a very interesting project.
While using my newest version of Long Tail Magic I discovered that more than 40% of traffic coming to my sites (including Raakesh.com) are cell phone users. My Browser Report on Long Tail Magic showed me that people using Androids, IPhone, Ipad, Blackberry, and Palm PCs are visiting my sites. Here's a raw snapshot:

So the first thing I did was to grab my Android G1, and point my Dolphin Browser to raakesh.com and I was disappointed to see the results.
An internet forum is a good place to get answers to your questions, at the same time get ideas of what other's in your niche are talking about. A forum is a two way communication between you, and so many other people who share similar or different opinions as you.
For all Internet Marketing and Affiliate Marketing I usually visit Warrior Forum (www.warriorforum.com).
