* Catch Up

Hi All,
Talk about Gasping…
I’m gasping for breath with how much I’ve been involved with this last week or so!

Actually – I’m playing with words a little – because the first freebie plugin below is called G.A.S.P.

But before I go there – here’s a quick run through of my time since the Jury Break!
Feel free to skim to anything more of interest  ;)

I’ve naturally been in the forum at IMA making sure members questions are answered, and (along with Craig) adding more tools and content! (More on that below… AND more coming this next week!!)
But as well as doing my own chores etc. – I’ve been talking to a lot of friends about various up coming launches and products!
Plus I’ve been ranting at them about some of the promos I’ve been seeing!

I said a while back that we would see more and more people promoting WSO’s now that you can make commissions for pitching them!
And sure enough… I’ve had loads!
All seem to say they are just letting us know cos they’re great….

Yeah Right!
Like one today extolling the virtues of ranking number 1 with a video…. and proof that they did!
But not mentioning that if you go to the video you see it’s had a massive 47 views! (And how many of those would have been people like me who bothered to check if it was worth ranking for??)

Anyway – I digress. The point being – to be careful on what you THINK will help you, and make sure it actually will before you invest you’re hard earned dollar!

That said – I do have a heap of good links in todays email ;)
But seriously… LOOK at them all by all means – BUT ONLY invest in those that WILL help you move forward with what YOU are doing!… Never mind if it helped others doing different things to you!

Anyway – I suppose I best get on with it, as I still have some videos to make and copy to write before the day is over :)

OH and re: the weekend,
I can remember watching Dr.Who, and sleeping in on Sunday… But the rest seems to be a blurr – and not from socialising! I think I spent most of it just catching up with everyone and arranging a couple of meet ups and events.

That said – I do love the way the weather has been lately, and I know I went for a meal with one of my grandsons and my daughter – so I guess I must just ‘meld’ from work to social without realising….haha

On with the good stuff ;)

Chat soon

* Free Plugin To Stop Spam

A big shout out to Sally @ for this freebie plugin!
She has saved me ten minutes a day and a lot of frustration telling me about G.A.S.P.
It’s a plugin that stops 99% of the spambot posts we geton our blogs, and I was up to around 400 a day!!

Here’s a quick video I made showing how easy it is to find and install this plugin:

I hope you find it useful if you don’t have it already



* Free Paypal Button Creator Plugin

If you rememeber me mentioning this plugin before – it’s cos I did!
But as I grabbed it with PLR, I decided to give it free to my readers in case it’s useful ::

It’s the one that creates paypal buttons on your blog, that you can set up easily – with no techy bits involved ;)
You can download it without optin etc. from here:

You’ll need to create your own graphics etc. if you want to use it as a gift to build your own lists – or you might just want to install it to use yourself?

Either way I hope it’s useful


* Free Link Cloaker if you missed it

This isn’t for members (Who get this free in their membership anyway!)
But if you’re not a member and missed the post where I gave away the link cloaking and tracking software we had developed.
Then here is another chance to grab it free here:

You will need to optin, and we are testing an offer after optin.
But hey – no strings in terms of buying anything you don’t want ;)
And you can unsub anytime!



* NOT for IMA members – The AmazingCashFormula

And for those who already have the Link Cloaker, (Once again – NOT for IMA members – you already have access to this offer too!) ;)

Just for those who are interested to see one of the courses we added to IMA……
Many of our subscribers have asked what if we had to start again from scratch, where would we start…
Well this is it!… Although we’ll be closing this down very soon once all the spots are filled:
I would seriously recommend picking this up while you still can.
You’re gonna absolutely love it!
(NOT for IMA members – you already have it ;))


* Out Today – Niche Reaper is Great

I Hate Keyword Research !
What about you..?

Let’s face it, good Keywords are the foundation of your online business, especially when it comes to getting traffic.
The big downside is that doing thorough keyword research is tedious, long-winded and down right BORING!

PLUS – I kow from chats with friends like Terry (who has hundreds plus adsense sites), and Bev, (who is our SEO go to girl), that to do a really thorough job, you need thousands of dollars worth of software!!
Well as of now there is a simpler way!

You know what I mean, it’s mind numbing to have to go through the whole process of: –

~ brainstorming a potential market where there are enough searches to make it worth targeting

~ checking the level of competition to decide whether it’s “doable”

~ try and take the competition on, without knowing for sure the real “value” or profitability of the market, or whether it will make you any money…

sometimes it feels more like blindly “taking a chance”, rather than making a solid, informed business decision!

(Side Note – when Bex and Terry explain the mnore advanced stuff they do and the high cost of the software they use… it’s enough to put you off completely (or just pay them to do it))
In a nutshell – when Terry was at mine last Saturday and saw this — He got ‘super excited’!
He actually told me there and then it would be something he would grab because it will save him “Thousands” of dollars….
AND – around 5 hours of time for every site he builds!

That was enough to convince me to tell you about it!
So how would it feel to have access to a system that took away all of the tedium, guess work and pain of getting it wrong..?

A system that works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long, scouring through tens of thousands of potential niche markets for you every single day…and then serves up just those that are worth your time and effort!….  those niches that will really make you money! ….. your wait is over!….. that system is here: –

WARNING! Places are severely limited and will fill up quickly, so you need to act right now!!!


* Coming 18th – Getting FREE Traffic Videos

Free traffic is always nice ;)
And this is a comprehensive video course on getting it

There are 3 free videos for opting in to see the main salespage

I’ve seen the course – and it is very detailed.
However – I would check the freebies and then decide whether you fancy the investment once you’ve seen the free stuff ;)

And even then – see if there is an exit pop
(You know me – if I can save you a few dollars I will) ;)


* Coming Soon NicheMarketPLR

Are you still reading ?
Well do STOP and take note of this one!

This is one I’ve been working on with Terry Dollard. Basically – he does the techy stuff, then I keep adding more bits I think would make life easier for the rest of us…haha
Well after 3 years or running I’ve had a good number of people ask if I can get some PLR for Niches outside of the IM niche.

The answer was always yes – but I never got around to building a site for them! NOT until Terry showed me what he could do that was!!
You can get on the early bird list for NicheMarket PLR at:

The BIG difference between this and any other membership site offering PLR in the popular niches outside of IM is this:

With NicheMarketPLR – You will be able to click a few buttons (HEY MAGIC…
Seriously – Terry is working some products into a theme that you will be able to use to get a site online in less than 5 minutes – ready to take money for you!
We have around a month – so I’ll let you know more soon.

Meanwhile – we will be limiting membership so as not to over saturate and ensure members get a great deal. So do get on the early bird list to guarantee a look around ;)

Even I’m excited by this site…hehe
I love it when I ask for simple solutions and actually get them!

  1. RandySmith@InternetMarketingRambles, 17 May, 2011

    What was really funny – was that after telling about the plugin to stop the spam… Sally ended up in my spam folder yesterday!
    That said – I spotted her easily, as I only got 2 again today thanks to the plugin!!



  2. Eamon, 17 May, 2011

    Hey Randy.

    Wow…you give so much free stuff here mate.

    I loved the video on the plug-in GASP, I get the same amount of spam hitting me on a daily basis too.

    With you discovering this one Randy, it should help tidy things up a bit on my blog ;). Good luck with your IMA, I’m hearing good things about it from other sites I have visited that have joined up with you guys.

    Best of luck Eamon.

  3. mandy@LearnToBlog, 17 May, 2011

    Hi Randy, I like the sound of GASP, I must look into that when I post this comment, thanks for sharing. And I loved your comment! That is really funny.

    Enjoy the journey.


  4. Shivam Garg, 17 May, 2011

    Hey Randy,
    You have go great stuff.I liked them all.One pick of the list is the paypal button creator.Its a really nice plugin and will surely save a lot of time.

  5. RandySmith, 17 May, 2011

    Hi Guys,

    I just wished I’d known about it years ago (or when ever it was written) …lol

    I’m really thrilled at not having those 30-400 daily spam comments now :)

    P.S. – There’ll be another post soon – We’ve just added a graphics creator tool for IMA members!… It’s really cool, and super simple to use!

  6. Dee, 17 May, 2011

    Hi Randy
    I am confused (not unusual for me) is this for a blog or email account please?

  7. zora, 18 May, 2011

    Sound great 400 down to 2 what a difference, that’s amazing. Before you got this I bet you could not even go thru all 400. Top Notch Video .Thanks for the tools I’m going to try them out but what if I use the link clocker and can find my link. If this happens will you give us a link finder? he he

    Do you know some place to get plr PayPal button graphic we can add to the plug-in you gave us.

    Thanks for all your hard work

  8. RandySmith@InternetMarketingRambles, 18 May, 2011

    @ Shiv – Glad you liked the free paypal button creator… it should save a lot of time and effort :)

    @ Dee – this is for your blog… see my tick box before you post – Confirm You’re Not A Spammer etc.

    @ Zora – GASP is so cool .. just 5 spam today and two weren’t – previously they would have been deleted as I wouldn’t have gone through the 400 as you mentioned!
    re Grpahics – John Chadwick is worth shouting at – he is currently building a graphic site, so he has some great deals on really cheap! (OR – try fiverr for something quick and cheap)

    P.S. We’ve now added yet another free tool for IMA members .. a free graphic creator! – Check my youtube account for videos I spent all day filming…lol search for RandolfSmith :)

  9. John Chadwick, 18 May, 2011

    Hi Randy, thanks for the mench! My main blog is down for maintenance at the moment but people can still place orders through my contact form at I am currently running a BOGOF at the moment (Buy One Get One Free) on any sort of graphic and of course there is the usual discount for IMA members ;-)

    Later mate

    John Chad

  10. RandySmith@InternetMarketingRambles, 18 May, 2011

    Cheers for stopping by John… But hey – don’t be getting too busy so you don’t have time to help me out….LOL


  11. barney, 19 May, 2011


    You’re getting as bad as some of those you decry . While I’m certain the G.A.S.P. plugin is worthwhile, I don’t have the time to sit and watch a video to see a demo or get the link. Nothing wrong with video, per se, as long as there’s a transcript available – most of us can read faster than we can watch a video. In fact, many of us can read faster than you can talk (audio/podcast, as opposed to video). Given that, and given the enormous amount of material we all have to cover on any given day, watching video is a time luxury a lot of us simply cannot afford. Hence, a transcript and a product link would be well received. Just a thought. – just cause it’s cool is not necessarily a reason to do it .

  12. RandySmith@InternetMarketingRambles, 19 May, 2011

    Hi Barney,
    I DO understand where you’re coming from…. However – for the 5 minutes watching the video – the 30 minutes a day saved – I would consider to be a worthwhile investment of time!
    That said – if you already know how to install plugins – just search plugins for G.A.S.P. :)

    On the other side of the coin, me showing it all on a video takes 5 mins to film and the rendering can happen while I do other things… hence the time investment I would need to make to then transcribe and create a pdf – would not be a good investment of my time, as I’m sure you can appreciate.

    Hope that clarifys why I did a quick video, and not a transcription. Incidentially – I once did a pdf with screen shots for a video I had done… and it took me 12 hours due to my lack of tech ability. Where the video only took 10 minutes. So maybe I should get more techy??… but quite honestly, – My skills are in other areas and I douibt they’ll ever be in the tech side of things ;)


  13. Matt Black, 19 May, 2011

    That’s really cool to know that you managed to ‘exterminate’ this evil thing called spam, I will definitely try it, I’m so tired of the one-size-fits all types of comment coming from people who can barely speak or even type proper English!

  14. RandySmith@InternetMarketingRambles, 20 May, 2011

    I’ve not completely exterminated the spam matt – but today only saw 5 instead of 400!
    Your post was in pending and was approved because it was on topic – so enjoy your backlink ;)

    The 5 spam were trying the same – but not on topic…hence they aren’t showing…hehe

    P.S. Last chance to get NicheReaper today – The price goes up at noon est, and I reckon they’ll be sold out by tonight!

  15. grace @ wedding favors, 20 May, 2011

    Hey Randy! Free stuff and a lot of tips. The Paypal button realle appealed to me and your tips about it is a great help. Thanks for that! ;)

  16. Barry Wells, 22 May, 2011

    Hi Randy, I’m hearing loads of people mentioning your next meet up. You may need to put a tent up for the overspill :lol: Unfortunatley I’m still not in a position to come yet, but one day……..

    Thanks for the video Randy, easy to follow and straight to the point. I’ve installed it and am now passing the word around ;)

    I’m back to the hospital this week Randy but will catch you up when I get back.

    Respect and Regards, Barry

  17. RandySmith@InternetMarketingRambles, 22 May, 2011

    Cheers guys :)

    @ Grace – Glad you liked the paypal button creator :)

    @ Barry – Glad to help – my spam today was ZERO :) yay… Shame you can’t make the meet up, But I do understand!


  18. trance, 22 May, 2011

    I must say your blog is quite unique. i don’t know why but maybe because of the format? But anyway i still like it! I also like to try that free plug in to stop spam. there’s a lot of spam spreading in facebook. I have even one on my wall i don’t know how did that happen some of my friends might have clicked the wrong button. Nice post by the way and thank you for sharing this one. More power to you!

  19. RandySmith@InternetMarketingRambles, 23 May, 2011

    Hi Trance,
    Yes the plugin is doing it’s job… hence you got spotted in the spam folder, as as you are on topic – you’re now posted :)

    Hope you like my latest post with the free graphics software.


  20. Ian Ieba, 23 May, 2011

    Hi Randy

    Came here via Barry’s blog!

    Thanks for sharing this Randy … video was so easy to follow and I know this plugin will save me time scanning my spam folder. I dont know why but just recently the spam has gone through the roof!

    Guess I need to check out “Niche Reaper” now?

    Thanks again Randy



  21. RandySmith@InternetMarketingRambles, 23 May, 2011

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for stopping by :)
    I know GASP will sort most of yourspam issue out!… It’s done wonders for me ;)

    Do pop back often… I already have another post since this one with a cool freebie and videos showing it ;)


  22. Andrew Walker, 24 May, 2011

    Hey Randy. You give lots of free stuffs here. I like the video on the plug-in GASP. With your stuffs, my blog is free from the spam, and help tidy it up. Nice, man. And good luck with your IMA.

  23. Lynda, 25 May, 2011


    Lots of great freebies here. Niche reaper will be one I will for sure be checking out. Anything to make the hunt for profitable keywords less tedious you can count me in. I’ll be returning to watch your posts. Thank you :)

  24. waterpearls, 27 May, 2011

    Hi Randy,
    Nice post.I like your tips and free paypal button creator plugin.This plugin is really very inspiring.The video is very easy to understand.Thanks for sharing.

  25. Julie, 30 May, 2011

    Hi Randy,

    Ian Ieba gave me the link to your youtube video for the GASP plug-in. I just love screen-shot instuctions, got it installed with no problems. Thank you.

    Take Care

  26. RandySmith@InternetMarketingRambles, 30 May, 2011

    Hi Julie,

    Glad you like the plugin, and I’m thrilled Ian sent you over :)

    Here’s hoping we see you again soon ;)


  27. Highlighter: Comments and Sharing |, 30 May, 2011

    […] with having, it will stop 99% of spambot posts.  Another great video demonstration, this time by Randy Smith, he'll explain how to install […]

  28. Lynn Sanders@Become Medical Assistant, 25 August, 2011

    Hi Randy,

    The Niche Reaper link doesn’t work anymore, is the program closed? I was really excited about it.

  29. Audrey@Best Baby Swing, 11 November, 2011

    I’m trying to check the link including the niche reaper but seems like the link isn’t working right? Anyway, I’m pretty more interested with the plugins, the paypal button and the spam prevention plugin. The latter is really great especially that most people who want to increase their visibility online will simply just use automated tools to increase the # of their links leaving no value comments in the discussion.
