EPN – Attempt #2

My previous attempt at using mini sites for EPN worked ok, but it could have been a whole load better. Basically I put up lots of sites with no special info on them, it was just ebay results, I did that thinking google would take a good few weeks to even think about indexing the sites, but it only took a few days! Which was way faster than I could write product information! So this time I’m doing it at a much more sedate pace.

They did this because this site is hosted on shared hosting, so my site was basically sucking up too much CPU power and other peoples sites suffered. That was a good few months ago, and if any of you actually know me, I’m always up for a challenge. So here it is, this is my 3rd big push at being a web developer. My previous push was bigger than my first, so I hope this one is bigger and better than before. I still have the dream. The dream to make enough from my websites to be able tp pay my own...
