Hello people! I felt like writing something here after the rather long silence.
I am still around but I’ve been doing my own stuff. Blogging is just an avenue for me to share my experiences or thoughts about the online marketing scene. So I’ll update the blog when I have something to share.
By the way, I am now getting involved with Android app development, nothing fancy, just getting my feet wet. I might write about it in the future.
I wonder how many subscribers this blog have now. If you still visit this blog, I thank you for your support.
In the mean time, as you can tell, I have not been very active in the blogosphere for a while and might have some catch up to do. I was wondering which marketing blogs are you reading right now to get your fix on SEO, Internet marketing and making money online news. Feel free share them in the comments.

Itâ€™s funny that my last post was written exactly a year ago on 9 April 2009 and here I am again.
I am still alive and kicking, just doing things in the background while I took the time out from blogging. As some of you know, this is what I do for a living, i.e. work online (not so much of a full time blogger by the way) so Iâ€™ll always be around.
For sure there are lots of new developments in the blogosphere for me to catch up to but letâ€™s do this one thing at a time shall we
While I was away, people kept coming to this blog. Nothing changes much in term of number of visitors although itâ€™s not as busy as when I was active writing obviously.Â

If youâ€™ve been trying to learn how to make money online, I am sure youâ€™ve came across claims like making money on the Internet is easy, you can become a millionaire overnight using a â€œfully-automatedâ€ or â€œturn-keyâ€ system. All you have to do is sit back and wait for the money to roll in.
But if itâ€™s that easy why hasnâ€™t everyone become an Internet millionaire by now?
Good for me that I started with no money at all so I couldnâ€™t afford to buy every marketing product that claimed to have the answer to the secrets of Internet riches. I had to and still exercise good judgment and common sense when it comes to spending money on how to make money products.

It has almost been two months since my last post. If you are wondering if I am still around to update Sabahan.com, yes I am very much here, still alive and kicking
For the past few years Iâ€™ve been spreading myself thin working on too many projects at once. I ended up taking more than I could handle and in the end, it became harder to achieve what really matters to me.
One of my business goals for 2009 is of course to continue working on where I left off in 2008. But this year, my plan is not only to work hard but to play harder. Instead of working longer hours, I aim for less than 5 hours a day of quality work. I plan to do a lot more travelling and spend more time on my hobbies as well as exercising more.

I was trying to come up with an attention grabbing headline and thought the headline for the sales copy for Commission Blueprint would do the trick.
Commission Blueprint is a training guide for anyone wanting to make real money from Clickbank or any kind of digital product using AdWords. It consists of a series of instructional videos and written guides in PDF format.
I purchased the guide recently and I have to say that itâ€™s one of the best purchases Iâ€™ve made as far as making money online guide is concern. While I am aware that the topic has been the subject of discussion for countless guides and ebooks out there, this little guide is a bit different.
The main content is presented in a video format and for me, consuming the content is like attending a one on one training session with the author. I just have to sit back, watch and listen as the author unveiled the exact steps he did to make an insane amount of money with Clickbank.

The number of blogs that I subscribe to changes all the time as new ones being added and old ones are removed as I continue to discover better ones that serve my needs better.
Undoubtedly, there are many other excellent blogs that I have not included in my list. That said, Iâ€™m trying to minimize the number of blog that I subscribe to, to the bare minimum. Â IMHO, thereâ€™s no point in subscribing to hundreds and hundreds of blog feeds if the end result is information overload.
Besides, I just donâ€™t have the time to keep up with all of them anyway. While itâ€™s important to read blogs to keep yourself informed of the latest happenings and developments, itâ€™s more important to practice what youâ€™ve read.
Now here are some of the blogs that Iâ€™ve been a subscriber for a while.

I planned to write a series of articles based on a formula that in my humble opinion sums up the â€œsecretâ€ of success for any blog. The formula is
Blog Success = Truckloads of Traffic + Good Monetization Technique + Good User Experience
Now when it comes to blogging, I must say that I am not a full time blogger and admittedly, there are other full timers who might have put the formula into practice, whether intentionally or not, and make tons of money out of it.
JohnChow.com comes to mind when we talk about this, the guy who made USD34,350.93 from his blog in October alone.
Well, it goes to show the sky is the limit when it comes to making money from your blog.
In general, this formula works regardless of whether you are trying to make money from blogging, affiliate programs, AdSense, eBay or whatever.

In October last year I reported about a 30 percent drop in my AdSense income from the previous month.
I figured that might had to do with Google pushing out yet another PageRank update where most websites reported downgrades to their PageRank scores including Sabahan.com.
Interestingly though, the opposite has been true for me this time around where my AdSense income has been higher than the previous months.
The usual suspect for this trend is the increase in advertisers demand which improve the quality of the ad inventory, which in turn affect the cost per click and cost per thousands impressions of the ads that appear on my websites.
This is my AdSense income from 1st to 26th September.
This is my AdSense income so far for the month of October. About $82 higher than the previous month so far.

It happens once in a while, a period when this blog seems to switch into a hibernation mode where updates are like the rain that never comes during a dry spell.
I had received several emails and comments from my readers wondering if Iâ€™m still around to update this blog – the answer is yes I am still alive. Sorry if Iâ€™ve kept you waiting guys.
One of them came up with several guesses as to why the lack of posting and allow me answer those lingering questions
1. Gaman is giving this post high priority, tribute to Gobala (could be Gobala giving him big sum of money :p )
Well it just happens that it was the last post before the blog went temporarily quiet. Good for Gobala for the extra exposure
2. Gaman is testing this page, can give big traffics or income return (iâ€™m no SEO expert)

I imagine anyone who wants to learn about making money on the Internet and wonders if itâ€™s possible to do it for a living would have their interest peaked to find a book addressing this subject.
If you donâ€™t know this already, Gobala Krishnan – one of the most prolific Malaysian Internet marketers â€“ has released his first paperback book with a fascinating title: The New Millionaires: Work From Home Make Money Online Live Like a Millionaire.
The book should be available in book stores near you as you are reading this.
I got a complimentary copy from Gobala a couple of days ago and I initially flipped through it to see if there are new nuggets to pick up. This book is written by someone who has been there and done it, so of course I did expect to find something interesting.
