New brand name for MoneyBookers: Skrill

MoneyBookers.com announced yesterday his re-brand name. The new name is Skrill. For now you can access site on both address.

Also they announced a lot of new services and opportunities:

Our next evolution is to rebrand as Skrill, the first step towards offering you massively enhanced payment facilities to attract and convert even more customers. Skrill is going to better represent what we are and what we will become, as well as differentiate ourselves in a crowded marketplace.

Skrill was an informal term for money. But we – and you – are going to make it more than that. In the same way you ‘google’ something or ‘skype’ your friends, people will soon ‘Skrill’ money.

Skrill means a safe and innovative way for consumers to pay for their online goods. Skrill means choice. Skrill means flexibility. Skrill means reliability and peace of mind. Skrill makes you online safe.

Will wait for this new facilities and hope will be a real concurrent for PayPal.com

IS Page Rank Important?

A lot of people say about the page rank of a website is no longer important. And yes doesn’t affect SERP positions. But if the pagerank measure the importance of your blog, is not important to have a “important” website.

The page rank is not important for guys who make money only from adsense. But if you want to sell advertorials and make money selling banners directly is more easier to go to possible clients and show your page rank and traffic data.

You don’t need to be a maniac and try to have the biggest PR in the word, but have an eye to this, too.

Why You Can’t Make Money from Blogging

Let’s talk a little about an editorial that explains why we can’t make money online blogging, made by Daniel Lyons, known for two years as “Fake Steve Jobs”.

Big traffic, no money

When his identity was revealed in New York Times, more than half-million people visited his site in a single day. For that traffic he got about a hundred dollars with AdSense and entire month he made more than $1.000. Not enough for what he expected and after some time he gave up. So the following quote from Newsweek it’s eloquent for our work in blogging:

I learned the hard way: while blogs can do many wonderful things, making huge amounts of money isn’t one of them.
Fake Steve Jobs

The expert weighs in

Another interesting article was made by Paul Verna, an analyst with eMarketer. He is adopting the following issue: “the lack of a clear business model that can generate substantial revenues.”
If our business model is “ I want to make money on the Internet” you won’t go very far with it. But of course there are few fortunate situations when people made some good money from successful blogs.
So to sum up, like Fake Steve Jobs said, if you don’t have a good business model you won’t make any money.

Blogs are not television

In television, if you want to watch a movie, than you have to watch also his ads. When someone visits your site, if the ad isn’t something that he is looking for he won’t click on it, he won’t even look at it. So if you have huge traffic this doesn’t mean that you will earn huge money.

If you want to make money in the real world, solve real problems

The following quote explains the best what ideas you should have on your blog:
If you don’t offer customers something they dearly want, whether it’s to gain some great pleasure or escape some great pain, you’re not going to make any money.
We, bloggers, we must be as creative as musicians to make something special, else no one will take a look at it.

It’s time for online business to grow up

We all thought that if we made a site, than we will be rich. This kind of “business” worked for a while, but now it doesn’t. Now we must focus on what works, what always worked. Valuable content, solving problems, fix what’s bugging people.
