Most affiliates start out struggling with SEO, but the GPWA's raphnix started his affiliate business because he had a background in SEO. In this wide-ranging interview, he tells us who he listens to when he's going to "pimp" his websites and reveals that he's pretty hard to impress. But we just want to go to dinner with him, Abraham Lincoln and Jessica Alba.

New MessageGoogle redirecting all traffic to https

Has anyone else noticed that Google has started to redirect traffic to an https? From what I could tell, they first rolled this out as a test in chrome browsers in some markets. Also originally, they only did this for logged in accounts and provided the opportunity and method for changing this. As of today I noticed it was happening to me logged in or otherwise in IE. I have read a few scattered posts that it appears to have been rolled out completely and they removed the method of opting out of this "feature". I know many may say this is good, but so is choice. read more
