Search Query Sunday, 16th Edition

June 8th, 2008

search-engine-logo.jpgOnce again it is time to review the search query stats and select the next batch of questions to answer. Although the topics of rejection letters, ants, and gasoline/crude oil are still the leading pages for attracting search queries, my little tutorial articles on How to Uninstall Yahoo Toolbar from Firefox and How to Remove Yahoo Toolbar from Internet Explorer have managed to rank fairly well in Yahoo and are now picking up some traffic. Meanwhile, my little blog commenting campaign from last week is still producing favorable results from MSN, with 68 hits coming from Live Search during the past 24 hours, plus a few more queries that are fully displayed in FireStats.

does amazon accept alertpay — According to their site, apparently not. Amazon does not accept PayPal either, although they do accept many other types of payment methods. Here is the official word on this from Amazon’s Help page:

Payment Methods We Accept

Amazon.com accepts American Express, Diners Club, Discover, JCB, MasterCard, Eurocard, Visa, Visa Check Cards, payment from your bank account, Amazon.com gift cards, Amazon Store Card, Webcertificates, and checks, money orders, traveler’s checks, or cashier’s checks denominated in U.S. dollars and drawn on a U.S. bank.

We do not currently accept international wire transfers, PayPal, or Smart Cards. For grocery purchases, we are unable to apply manufacturer’s coupons, food stamps, or any other payment method not listed above.

easyhits4u is it scam — No, EasyHits4U is just a regular manual traffic exchange. You do not have to pay anything to join, surf, or receive traffic from them, although they do offer the option of purchasing blocks of traffic or upgrades. You can read my latest post on EasyHits4U here.

how does USAA atm fee reimburse work — Any ATM fees incurred are reimbursed all at once at the end of each month. However, before the end of the month these fees are still counted as debits, so you may need to keep track of them for a while if your account balance is low. Note that USAA has a reimbursement limit of 10 withdrawals or $15 in total fees per month, whichever occurs first. The reimbursement payment will show up as a deposit on your monthly bank statement.

general tso’s sauce recipe — I have a pretty good formula for a General Tso sauce here, along with the full recipe for the chicken and batter.

pro and con of paying taxes on internet — I have been receiving several of these types of searches lately (a related one is “pros and cons of the current tax system”), but they are difficult to answer because I cannot think of any pros to Internet taxes or the current tax code, except perhaps in the case of very specific special interests or politicians who have some sort of sadistic desire to take away more of our economic freedom. Overall, the tax system is in need of a major overhaul in terms of both fairness and simplification.

“selling articles” writing — If you’re a writer, you can sell your articles at Constant Content and even make a pretty good income with it after you get a significant number of articles approved. I have recently received two payments from them for previous article sales; eventually I will put together the relevant information on this and write up an official payment report.

speed up process of drying phone
— There are a few different methods for this, including hair dryers, putting the phone in dry rice, or even putting it in the refrigerator. You can read more about how to dry out your cell phone after it has gotten wet here.

there their they’re where were lesson
— Although I have not yet dealt with where vs. were, I have a fairly comprehensive article on the correct use of their, there and they’re here.
