The purest form of making money is:
PPC and Affiliate Marketing combined.
Why? Because it focuses on the bare essentials:
Buy traffic with ads -> Convert traffic to the affiliate offer -> Profit.
The nice thing about this is that it can be scaled easily when you have a working formula. There are less limitations by buying the traffic you need. Trying to SEO a site means a limited amount of traffic, and much more beholden to the vagaries of the search engines and your competition.
Downside of this business model: It can be easy for other people to copy your ads and landing pages.
Prosper202 does much better on MySQL 5.1. Here’s how to install that:
This is a bit of a hack, so first make sure you install mysql:
# sudo pacman -S mysql
Next, you want ABS (which has all of the package build information so you can compile your own version of an already existing package).
# sudo pacman -S abs
# sudo abs
# cp -R /var/abs/extra/mysql ~/
# cd ~/mysql
# wget http://www.foucist.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/pkgbuild
# mv pkgbuild PKGBUILD
# makepkg -s
# if it fails, rm -rf src/ and pacman -S base-devel and try again
# sudo pacman -Uf mysql-5.1.30-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz (the -f forces it to overwrite the existing mysql files)
# sudo /etc/rc.d/mysqld restart
# mysql –version (should show client version 5.1.30)
# mysql (should show Server version: 5.1.30)
