I don’t often blog about [analytics](http://www.pronetadvertising.com/articles/web-analytics-an-introduction.html) but as some of you may know I am deeply involved in the space because I am one of the owners of [Crazy Egg](http://www.crazyegg.com). In the past I [blogged](http://www.pronetadvertising.com/articles/crazy-egg-officially-launches.html) about it and why it is useful for website owners and today we just launched a feature called [confetti](https://crazyegg.com/overview#confetti) that gives website owners a better understanding of how visitors interact with their website.
You probably have a 9 to 5 job that sucks and doesn’t pay well. There is nothing wrong with doing what you love, but if you are trying to make money I recommend doing affiliate marketing through [Azoogle](http://www.azoogle.com). In the past I [posted](http://www.pronetadvertising.com/articles/what-i-learned-at-shoemoney-university.html) about making thousands of dollars from affiliate marketing and it seemed that many of you wanted to know the secret… so here it is
This week on Rush Hour Cameron and Cshel talked about Facebook, Digg, [SMX](http://searchmarketingexpo.com/smx_advanced07/register.shtml) and [Bar Camp San Diego](http://barcamp.org/BarCampSanDiego).
If you ever release a video on [YouTube](http://www.youtube.com) your main goal is probably to get millions of views. In most cases great videos get thousands of views, but if you actually create a mediocre video that others want to respond to you can get millions of views.
Today on Pronet I added a social stock prediction widget to the sidebar. I usually like to keep the design clean, but for roughly 2 weeks there will be a widget on the site that allows you to predict stock prices for Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Interactive Corp, and News Corp. Whoever has the highest score at the end of 2 weeks will be given a free video iPod from Jambaz (the creators of the widget).
This week on Rush Hour [Cshel](http://www.cshel.com), [Cameron](http://www.cameronolthuis.com) and I discuss the [acquisition of Feedburner](http://www.techcrunch.com/2007/05/23/100-million-payday-for-feedburner-this-deal-is-confirmed/), [Technorati redesign](http://www.pronetadvertising.com/articles/technorati-redesigned-get-realigned-here21138.html), Digg tips and making money online through MySpace.
Lately, many companies who have requested my marketing services for their new product or web application feel that I can work my magic and make it so their sub-par product does really well. In reality, this is impossible. Marketing can only be successful when you have a genuinely compelling product. Sites like [YouTube](http://www.youtube.com), [Skype](http://www.skype.com), and [Flickr](http://www.flickr.com) all did well because of all the programming and product development that went into building great services which enabled great marketing to do its trick.
This week on Rush Hour [Cameron](http://www.cameronolthuis.com), [Cshel](http://www.cshel.com) and [I](http://www.quicksprout.com/about) talk to [Chris Winfield](http://www.10e20.com/authors/) from [10e20](http://www.10e20.com/) and a mystery caller who claims to be [Kevin Rose](http://www.digg.com/about/kevin) from Digg. Throughout the show we discussed all the latest happenings with Digg, Guy Kawasaki’s new social site called [Truemors](http://www.truemors.com), and if it really was Kevin Rose or not on the show.
We all know that the main reason why stories don’t hit the Digg homepage is because they get buried. Some say the buries are caused by specific Digg users who have it out for us while others just blame it on the content saying it wasn’t Digg worthy. Well last week we did a test on Pronet Advertising that shows Digg might be burying stories internally.
We talk about measuring success all the time and it seems that there is no one perfect way to measure success. Return on investment is usually the way I measure success but another great way to see if you were successful is to see if anyone copied you. If someone is willing to copy what you just did then you are probably doing something right.
