Hey Jack,

I'm in Melbourne. I run a Bitcoin-accepting store ( http://www.shopjoy.com.au/buy-with-bitcoin ). I'm looking for a Bitcoin-literate Australian to do some some Bitcoin-related work: research, writing, marketing, etc. I can pay you in Bitcoin, of course.

Would you be interested?

PS: Sent you $5 worth of BTC. Have some Bitcoin to play with Smiley

Blatchcorn just completed a job for me. It was a pleasure to deal with him and his response was always timely. 10/10 would hire again Smiley

Hi sqyl,

Advertising on those sites, just doesn't affect the ranking. Because google gives the value of backlink by its page rank, so if you are looking to rank top 10 in google using seo,

The only way is building high pr backlinks. So you will get more weight on the site and it ranks you top for your keyword.

Thanks minto.

I'm not ready yet for a full-blown SEO campaign. I just want to gather some Bitcoin backlinks, just so search engines know associate my store with Bitcoin shopping. In the meantime I'm working on what I want from a proper SEO campaign.

I'll give you some off the top of my head for free.

Bitcorati
Spendbitcoins.com
Bitpay directory (if you use them for payment processing)

Bitcoin.it - Trade, other relevant sections
Bitcointalk.org thread


Thanks for that. That's the sort of list that I was thinking about Smiley

blatchcorn, I will send a PM soon.

Hi,

I recently upgraded my little online store (Australian) to accept Bitcoin and I'm seeking someone to help out with SEO.


What is the job?

* Compile a list of reputable and/or legitimate Bitcoin sites (e.g. directories, wikis, etc) where you will submit my store.
* The sites that I'm looking for must be considered "good neighbourhood", i.e don't have links/ads to pornographic or gambling sites (or relatively few).
* I will inspect the site list and cross out any that I see as risky.
* You will then go ahead and submit to my approved sites.


How will you get paid?

* We will break down the job into small enough milestones
* I will pay you in BTC at the end of each milestone
* I'm happy to pay a small amount of BTC upfront as down payment


Who am I looking for?

* NOT A SCAMMER (mandatory)
* Familiar with the Bitcoin world. You already know many suitables sites for this job.
* Knowledgable in SEO


What to do if you're interested?

* Please PM me so we can work out details and negotiate your rate


Thanks so much for taking the time to read this Smiley

Ideal trust no one. But Theymos has been involved in more than one scam and has abused his power. No one will but n00bs will trust this/him.

I'm new here. May I ask what he's done?

By the way, I've seen a member who has 'untrustworthy' as his rank. What does it mean? I've checked this page https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=86580.0 but it doesn't mention it.

I believe he didnt repaid all his debts or not in timely fashion. So expect some problems when trading with him  Smiley

Found the explanation: he made a bet and reneged on it. Here's the thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=101751.0

Welcome to the forums! Watch out for scammers!

Excellent advice. A must read thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=199658.0;topicseen

Also don't click on any ones links in here, could be phishing and you might get a virus! Hovering over a link to see the url displayed at the bottom of your screen is helpful if you are considering clicking on the one I posted, or just search for 'rules to avoid being scammed'.

Thanks for the advice. Though new to bitcoin I've done quite a bit of online trading so I'm not the naive type (I hope so anyway).

Hi!

Been lurking here a bit, finally decided to sign up. There's some gap in my understanding of how bitoins work. I hope it's OK to ask here. Here it is:

1) In the real world, if I own $100 cash, I have one piece of paper with $100 written on it that proves this fact. In the bitcoin world, I don't have a piece of file that proves my ownership of some BTC, but rather there's a peer-to-peer network that traces all bitcoin transactions and tallying some of these transactions proves how much BTC I own. Is my understanding correct?

2) If I'm correct above, then would it take longer and longer to compute who owns how much BTC as more and more transactions have taken place?

Apologies if the above questions sound stupid. I've spent hours reading and even watching videos on how bitcoin works but alas I'm not a crypto or maths expert.


welcome  Smiley

1) in online wallets for example your current holdings are displayed like money that is on your online banking account. same with bitcoins you have on your exchange account. (please do not keep significant amounts of bitcoins on online wallets or exchanges, and always use 2f authentification)

2) all transactions are stored forever and publicly in the blockchain. this blockchain is indeed growing with every transaction. if you download a bitcoin client software like bitcoin-qt it indeed takes longer now to download all past transactions than it did a year ago. but it does not matter when you move/send your bitcoins to another bitcoin adress: the computing of the this transaction is not done by your computer but instead by bitcoin miners (which are getting rewarded for doing this)

a very nice analogy is the piggy bank analogy:

Thanks for the explanation. It's clearer now Smiley
