15 Powerful Ways CBmall Makes You Money
Lesson Fifteen – Behind the Scenes
Well, it's Lesson Fifteen.
Your head must be spinning with all this CBmall stuff.
I'm going to twirl it a bit more today. Then try to make sense of the big picture.
A Peek Behind The Scenes
This is the technical stuff. I'll be quick about it, but it is important to understand
because it plays a factor in your CBmall's ultimate profitability.
First, CBmall runs on a dedicated server controlled solely by me. Besides a
couple of other small web sites I own, CBmall shares resources with no other
Most web sites reside on shared servers, where hundreds or even thousands of
sites share the resources of one computer. That means they often run
Not CBmall. It now has its own dedicated server tied into a gigabit fiber optic
connection to the backbone. This speed means pages load faster, which
improves the shopping experience for everyone. And you gotta love that.
CBmall uses php and a mySQL database. The database gives CBmall its power
and the flexibility to run all the php code so quickly. CBmall is massively
scaleable, able to handle thousands of simultaneous visitors.
Affiliate Link Security
There are unscrupulous people out there who try to steal affiliate commissions. If
you are in any affiliate program or have had anything to do with ClickBank,
you've heard of this problem.
Frankly, I think it's exaggerated. Nonetheless, I figured that since I was rewriting
CBmall, I would put an end to link theft.
All affiliate links within CBmall are now undecipherable. You can't read them. You
can't make sense of them. And nobody can cut and paste them into their browser
to try to take what is yours.
Even if someone views the source code, they will not find a hoplink. That's
because the links are all generated by the database back-end. They don't even
exist in the source code.
