All this and more on the Late Night Internet Marketing Podcast…. You can probably hear from my voice, I am not exactly all okay yet. This has really been slowing me down. I started having a cough right around Christmastime. Then right around the New Year I came down with the flu, the real for sure Influenza A that I got a flu shot for. Apparently Influenza A has mutated here in the United States and the flu shot has limited effectiveness. I had that for five or six days, plus two or three days of still being really tired. Now I still have this annoying cough. Luckily, I have technology. I have a cough button in my set up. It actually sits on the floor and if I feel like I’m going to cough I can just hit the button, cough, and you’ll never know the difference. At least I hope that’s the case. Things are going okay here. I’m making content, I’m back on the mic, everything is cool with my 2015 goals. I’m a little behind because of all this flu, but that’s okay, I know where I’m headed. I hope you’re headed in a good direction, too. We’re going to talk about some stuff that might help you today. Before we do that, let’s get into a little affiliate marketing news. Russian Spam Bot Attacks The first thing I want to talk to you about is some of this stuff that you may have been hearing about on the internet, Russian spam. The so called Darodar referrer spam. This is kind of interesting for affiliate marketing because this spam is not harmful to your website,
