Adsense Disabled my Account! New Ads!

I was contacted by Google yesterday about my AdSense account. I guess our ads were “a risk to Adsense’s publishers” (more here), when really I think the issue was that we were getting close to our first payout.

Even Google is listed as harmful (see left)! Someone must have screwed something up, or Google was hacked!

Domainr – Unique Domain Finder

Here’s another great web tool that helps you find top level and second level domain names. Its different from other domain registration sites because it gives you different formats of domain names and uses folders and domain suffixes to create a unique domain name. For example, if you search for “Technology”, it will give you a format like “tec.hn/ology” or “t.ec/hnology”.
There’s tons of combinations to try out, so if your stuck with a domain search problem, just check out Domainr.
Here’s the Domainr Site: http://domai.nr/

SkreemR Music Search

SkreemR Music Search helps you find the music you want to hear and gives you the option to download the song, and if you like it enough, it gives you a link to buy the song. Skreemr has also developed a technology similiar to Google’s Pagerank System, called AudioRank, which grabs the most likely search results and puts them at the top so you don’ t have to keep scrolling down to find the song you were actually searching for.
Definitely one you should have bookmarked or if you are real …
