Pete realized Google is an incredibly important part of your reputation, but unless you know how Search Engine Optimization (SEO) works — which most people don’t — or have thousands of dollars to spend on a reputation company, there is nothing you can do. gives you easy steps to follow to help add “good” links to your Google search, which drives down “bad” links on your search.

Purex Introduces Cookie Scented Detergent

I’ll admit I’m not the most frequent launderer in the family, but when Purex announced a special sneak peak at its latest product, Cookie Scented Purex Laundry Detergent, I volunteered my FatHeadDog nose to help review it. And I must say, with my Purex-laundered clothes, I’d never been hungrier. I caught myself mid-nibble chomping on my sleeve. Not good. If you can resist the urge to gnaw your clothes, then find more information about Purex’s newest offering, visit the Purex Facebook page.

Penny Auctions are Like Penny Slots…

Penny auctions are like penny slots. Don’t go in expecting to win thousands of dollars, or an iPad, and you’ll do fine. Penny slots are an appropriate analogy because the auctions really are like gambling for entertainment. (Yay!) What penny auctions are great for are winning smaller items like jewelry, toys and especially gift cards.

quibidsTwo auction sites I’ve been playing with are and BidRack gives away FREE bids every day with a spin-the-wheel game, which I love. QuiBids doesn’t give away free bids but has tons and tons of gift cards for auction, which improves your chances of winning.

If you’re leery of penny auctions, I don’t blame you. I was too. But just a little math and common sense can help you feel more confident about the process.


Example at BidRack: Bid packages start at $27 for 40 bids, but best values are with larger bid packages. I purchased 100 bids for $60, which made each bid worth 6 cents. With 2 to 20 free bids you receive every day, you can bank a nice number of bids in your account. I’ve won one auction there, a $25 Target Gift Card for $3.28. But I spent alot of bids to win that, so I really paid $20 for the $25 gift card–still a 20% discount for a gift card that I’ll definitely use.
