  • Did some more research for Hypercam screen recording software, split tested its different compression tools, but still the file size is extremely high (700Mb for 4 minutes of video is extremely high as compared to Jing which takes around 12-13 MBs for a 5 minute video)
  • I also researched some conversion tools so that you can compress those large files to a reasonable size. Final results were good, but it took more time than the actual video to compress. (I compressed a 3 minute video and it took more than 5 minutes to convert that file into a SWF file. So keeping in view the importance of your time I assume that this is not worth it.
  • I have researched another free screen recording software, which worked pretty well. I have included my research to the actual word file. Please see Dropbox for Screen recording softwares.docs

Stock Photos TOS Research:
  • I have researched stock photos usage information for all stock photo companies we are using/used. Their terms of service varies, but in general they don't force for a credit line for a standard/RF license, however most of them recommends to do so but still its not necessary. If your usage falls under an editorial license then its advised to use credit line information.
  • I have also created a word file and recorded all researched data there so that we can double check everything before using a particular photo.

Google Adsense Administrative Support:
  • Removed adsense ads from the following pages:
    • /i-lost-my-bikini-for-a-dare.html
    • /sexy-dares-1.html
    • /naked-dare-in-front-of-boyfriend.html
    • /teen-girls-doing-adult-dares-on-video.html
    • /strip-poker-stories.html
    • /licking-dares-with-your-boyfriend-exciting-and-hot-dare-stories.html
  • Also I have recorded all such pages to an Excelsheet so that we can monetize them in future. (Removed-adsense.xlsx)
Ideal-Helper Administrative Support:
  • About another video where you discussed about Tim Ferris' personal productivity tips and how to link it from its T2 page, the page is already in drafts (http://www.ideal-helper.com/tim-ferriss.html), but some days ago in another video you told me to use "Tim Ferriss Personal Productivity Tips" as the focused keyword for this page. So please have a review of the document again and let me know, I will implement changes to this page.
  • Optimized Personal Productivity Tips, please have a review and let me know if you want any changes. Didn't removed 'nofollow' 'noindex' at the moment.
  • Transcribed and submitted your comment to SBI Forum, Please have a review here. 
  • Replaced Aweber HTML codes for both newly created split tests.
Party Games Website Update:
  • Built 'how to get girls to play truth or dare' as BB2. I think this page does not have any call to action. I mean there is only one link (are you Interested?) which is linked to the selling page, still its not clear. I think a prominent call to action sales statement or a 'download' or 'buy' button will definitely help to divert traffic towards the selling page. I also propose to link the selling page to the top ebook cover page. 
  • If we can get some user reviews (testimonials) about the ebook, I think it can also help to improve the sales of this ebook. 
  • Also converted the selling page to BB2
  • Added 'how to get girls by playing truth or dare' cover page with a link to this page on the following pages.
    • /truth-or-dare-stories.html
    • /naked-dare.html
    • /sexy-dares-1.html
    • /naked-dare-in-front-of-boyfriend.html
    • /teen-girls-doing-adult-dares-on-video.html
  • Will find more pages and place the same photo with link to those pages as well.
  • Rotated more DUYP pages via RSS
Photo Research Task:
  • About the time I spent on Kathrin's photo research task:  It did not take more than 30 minutes for this whole task, I just sent her some image link URLs, I have added 30 minutes offline time.Thanks to this task I also found some more free credits to different photo banks
