    1. Hi, please, but I give to "submit", my blog will no longer break Alphainventions, what have I done wrong to be punished me with this?.

      1. The issue has been fixed. Thanks for hanging in there.

      2. No, it does not work, what's more, now is that, the few times (very few) that my blog can get in, or has no access or have one, which is not exactly convenient.

        This was handy when you stood a link and sometimes you were up to 30 views but now is that, as I have said, often do not get any.

        I need to know, please, if this will continue.

        Also, before I put a comment to that effect and I erased it, I do not understand why.

    2. Not sure what's changed recently, but traffic from Alphainventions has dropped dramatically.. over the past couple days have to continuously submit my bog to gain 'power', which doesn't seem to do much from what I can see.

      Would love to know how this works now.. been using the site for over 4 years now, and have gained a lot of readers/viewers from it and would love to continue to do so.



      1. I've red-designed the site to be more user friendly and it will take some time to gain momentum. Until then you may want to consider subscribing to an AIID# here http://alphainventions.com

        You can also email me at services@alphainventions.com for additional services.

    3. Wow! Thank. I can learn something to use on my site www.checklistmag.com. I have just been getting some benefits from the site by doing it right.

    4. One of the best ways to succeed as online blogger is by connecting and sharing blogging tips with other well known bloggers and site owners on the internet. digital marketing news
