Same thing happened with Namecheap last night.
I was getting some domain names and they went down for nearly an hour right after 12am.
You'd think a company that sells hosting would make sure their own servers are up to the task of handling Black Friday traffic.
Great example, Wade.
I struggle with that a lot too. Sometimes I put off doing things altogether because in my mind, the plan isn't "perfect" enough.
Truth is, it probably never will be. Just gotta take action and figure it out along the way.
Here's a serious answer.
It's kinda hard for the "universe" (aka, other people around the world who have money; the market) to drop $100k on your lap when you appear to have zero intentions of providing anything of value to them.
Me, me, me.. I want, I want, I want....
Reality check: The...
Hey man, sorry to hear about what happened.
But like you already seem to have figured out, there's no use feeling sorry for yourself.
Actually, you should be thankful it was only a DUI and you didn't hit or (even worse) hurt someone else while driving under the influence.

I've personally had better results disabling the content network and sticking with search only.

Thanks @Coalission, you bring up some very valid points.
I think there's definitely ways to leverage being an affiliate while still building your own brand. Like you just stated, Kayak, TripAdvisor and RetailMeNot are all perfect examples of that. As affiliates, our business is driving traffic...
I'll give you an example to illustrate my point.
Let's say you're promoting an auto insurance offer and your goal is for someone to fill out a 2 page form.
Chances are you're going to have a much higher conversion rate running search ads for related keywords like "online auto insurance quotes"...
You're absolutely right, Vig.
I currently have some close family members that live in Cuba, and a "good" salary there is roughly $20 a month. Doctors were actually just bumped up to around $60 a month not too long ago. Can you imagine? It's unbelievable how such extreme poverty can exist right...
Regardless of why college is frowned upon (or looked up to), that should not matter to you.
What should matter is what you want to do. You're going to have to understand that there will always be people who will not agree with your choices and look down on them, especially when you opt to take...
