    Chargeback protection on eCommerce (VIP Lounge)
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8867
    - An interesting discussion on how online merchants can protect themselves from the dreaded chargeback. Not only do you lose the revenue from the sale, but you're out the goods as well. If you have any tips to share, feel free to join in.

    Why do people communicate via FaceBook
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8821
    - A discussion as to the evolving means used to communicate on the Internet. Is email dead? What happens if you're not using the various social networks? Are you missing on potentially important messages? What means of communication do you use?

    Who do you use for drop catching domains?
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8868
    - Drop catching, recommended for acquiring expiring domains, not recommended with sharp knives. Do you have any recommendations or suggestions about how to maximise the chances of getting a domain if it drops? Stick them in here.

    Penguin recovery: An example that proves it seems to be possible...
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8872
    - What would the SEO forum be without a little drama? Join the debate about how to recover from the Penguin update (personally I tried leaving bits of tuna all over my websites but it didn't help, with my luck the Google penguin is vegan).

    Decay rate of sites post auction
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8839
    - A discussion about a third party post on some past Flippa auctions and whether sold listings are still being maintained. A third of all sales in Flippa end up visibly abandoned by the buyer i.e. they parked their domains or failed to renew the reg. Read the original post and add your two cents in the thread.

    NEW: You can now sell your domain, template or established website at our forum.
    Now Open with No listing fee, No success fee, and No shortage of buyers.
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8969
    - You can List Today, or File this important knowledge away for your future. As a member of EP, you now have access to a venue that is respected, which offers you a listing option whenever you have something to sell. It's yours! Make more money.

    Has AdSense shot themselves in the foot?
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8901
    - We all know that small website owners everywhere are hopping mad over AdSense's changes over the last 18 months. But have those changes crippled Google in the long term too? Or will the damage be more akin to a small dog nipping at their ankles?

    Improve your visitor retention
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8977
    - Now that search engine traffic is no longer top dog, how do you get your website's visitors to keep coming back for more? This topic discusses some of the juicy morsels you can use to get them sitting up and begging.

    Pinterest and "nopin" meta tag (rant!)
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8895
    - Pinteresque. [pause] Are they "The Caretaker" enabling "The Collection" and the easy "Remembrance of Things Past"? Or are they the "Betrayal" of copyright holders everywhere, leading to "A Slight Ache" as they see their images end up in a free-for-all "No Man's Land"? You'll find plenty of heated debate in this topic, but thankfully no menacing silences.

    It ain't safer to buy from Flippa "employees"
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8911
    - Fake Flippa fun. This post warns that some serial site sellers are pretending to be Flippa employees. It's a serious message but seasoned with lots of humour as a flurry of EP members apply for a job at Flippa.

    Few Farewell Questions
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8953
    - A trial member is flabbergasted by EP's bleak picture of the website buying business. Is it really so hard for complete novices to break into this murky market? Some Experienced People discuss whether it's worth persevering, and what strategies can help you pick out a path through the gloom.

    Stack Overflow Q&A site clones? Anyone develop one?
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/8879
    - There are more questions than answers, or so the song goes. So why not build a place for people to do their asking? One EP member asks about possible platforms and gets a whole bundle of answers. (Moral: don't look to song lyrics for reliable philosophy.)

    From the Flipping Planet archive of great threads.
    - Please note that archived threads may not have been posted to recently. It's all good stuff so why not breathe some new life into them?

    Domain Auctions.... where to begin?!
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/7156
    - OK, it's not exactly Sotheby's or Christies, but there's still plenty of excitement to be had in buying and selling domains. But is there money too? And if there is, how does a newcomer tap into it? There's a lot (sorry) of useful information here for the newbie domain flipper.

What tips and tricks can you make available to those who still want to engage in this sort of manipulation for both fun and profit?

    How to tell a site's real FB fans from the bought ones?
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/9200
    - Very often sellers boast a huge social following whether in Twitter, FB or elsewhere. Often when you go look at their page you find that the 10K "likes"/fans/followers they've got aren't translating into engagement. How does one determine whether the fans are bought or not, and does it even matter? Have your say in the thread.

    Google to use the number of copyright removal notices in their ranking algorithm
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/9207

    Changes related to the threads and members imported from FlippingPlanet
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/9264
    - Message from Clinton: Ex-FP members please note: As of next week you'll fall under all EP rules. Concessions have expired. Those of you who haven't posted should find that you still have active accounts and your accounts haven't been made dormant as is the normal practice here. That will change. When an account goes dormant you lose several privileges including PMs, signature rights etc. We had other concessions such as allowing you into the VIP Lounge with post counts of just 40. That will change as well. Most ex-FP members aren't visiting or posting, but I thought it only fair to announce this publicly before implementing the changes as those accounts will go dormant unless they start posting.

    Is blogging dying or what makes a great blogger?
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/9217
    - Blogging is dead! Long live blogging! What does it take to be a successful blogger? Successful being defined by some as more than your mom and your cat making up 80% of your site visitors.

This thread discusses all that and more so come join in.
