Time Flys

When you’re having fun...

So many things to do and so little time.  OK, enough cliches... here is a quick catch up on changes to the HypnoBlog site. 

We are more than happy to set up a HypnoBlog for anyone in the Hypnosis Profession but please dont ask unless you are going to use it.  It is such a waste of time to set it all up and then see it never used.  This is part of the problem with offering any thing for free - people don't really appreciate it and since it is free they don't give it much thought.  Most likely we will switch over to some type of a paying set up, at some point in the future, just to cut down on the non-serious sign-ups.  If and when we do it won't be much money - just something to drive the non-serious people away.  Yes, money talks...   

What's up with Google Adwords these days? 

Has anyone else noticed how they have changed their keywords system so they can drive their prices higher.  Strange new "qualifying" system where they get to do all the qualifying and you don't even know what basis they use to judge the keywords.  A review of their web site just leads you around in circles if you try to find out more details about the process.  I don't know why they just don't say it like it is: They are changing the way they charge for bids on keywords to a more secretive process so they can drive the prices up any time they want.  I much prefer Overture (now called Yahoo Marketing) as they even show you who you are bidding against, what rank your ad will post in the order of the ads and several other things that Google just doesn't offer.  Wouldn't it be great if a lot of people stopped paying for Google ads within their new "secret" service and they had to change the way they are doing it?  Most likely that would be the only way to make them change to a more fair system. 

That is my rant for this month.  I will find someone new to pick on next time or maybe I will just bash them some more... time will tell.

I doubt you will get any argument from the skilled on this board, we have all experienced it. However, in fairness, I have only just noticed the "blog" service, and will still need to learn about how it works as time goes by. I think it terrific to have a place to let off steam regarding some of the idiotic questions we get from persons who claim to be practising, God help their clients.
