The Power Play Interviews: Markus Frind- $ 3 million
in 6 months
This is the first of a series of Internet success stories that you will begin to see
on the Power Play blog. I hope you like them!
Markus Frind, the creator of Plentyoffish.com, is a noteworthy success story, as he managed
to conquer a niche previously ruled by giant companies and gave him his own brand
of marketing expert.
A case of David versus Goliath, in which the little boy comes out on top of the end.
Markus is the leading publisher of “individual” advertising in terms of page views.
Let’s find out what his secrets are while he shares some tips with our readers.
Feel free to comment!
Markus, what is your experience in computer programming and how did you prepare yourself to become a webmaster?
Average page views per day are around 14 million for the last week. I receive about 80 million page views a day from users who poll the site to see if they have new messages. Wise really intense bandwidth!
When I go to your website, I notice that the ads are directed to my region, and yet I have not even registered, can you explain to our readers how this is done?
I’m just using ip2location.com- Basically I take your IP, I look at it in the database and tells me what your city is. Then I make a list of users appear in your city, nothing magical about it.
Do most of your visitors come mainly from search engines (SERPS) or are you discovering that they come from other roads? Do you actively advertise in the media?
Search engines represent something like 2% of my traffic. Most of my traffic, like any other site with over 5 million page views a day, comes from word of mouth and repeats visitors.
The services on your site seem to be offered free to registrants. Is there any advantage over your competitors that allows you to do this?
I have developed new algorithms that allow me to create a mega site for the next at no cost. Several years ago I created an algorithm that was thousands of times faster than the algorithm used in the 90s to find a string of 22 prime numbers. At the time a professor used several super computers and hundreds of regular computers over several years to find a record. I did the same thing on 1 computer in 2 weeks.
Charming! Are there any other sites you currently manage, or is the abundance site the only one?
It is the only site at the moment. I have some other sites that I have registered for friends so they can learn how to do marketing / affiliation stuff. At this point I think 1 site is enough.
