Blogging with Desi Baba

Desi Baba had been blogging since July 5, 2006 and has done a good job building traffic to his blog, However, like every other blogs, it could use some more. There isn’t a much better way to inject some juice into your blog than to give it the “John Chow Effect” by ordering a ReviewMe review. And that’s exactly what Desi Baba did.

Who Is Desi Baba

According to the Desi Notes about me page, Desi Baba is the following:

dcn.jpgI’m Desi Baba, an actor who never made it to Hollywood, a singer who sounds like as if a cat got ran over by a car, and also I’m a player on the run from all the girls I proposed to.

I’m a former young executive of Microsoft, but I got kicked out of the company for using an Apple iBook in my office in Microsoft’s headquarters. Also, I pissed off Bill Gates for giving his daughter an Apple iPod for her birthday.

I was also a lyricist for Marshall Mathers, who is also known as the rapper Eminem. Unfortunately, he fired me because I started to write lyrics for him which were the same as his already written lyrics word for word. Go figure, that was a great coincidence.

Now if you believe that, then you probably believe my about me page that says I’m a damn fine person. I give Desi bonus points for coming up with a creative about me page. The Blog

Desi Notes covers blogging, technology, making money, and entertainment. That sounds a lot like what I cover so ordering this review was a smart move. Being almost a year old, Desi Notes has a lot of posts – the blog is averaging nearly two new posts per day. For those interested in making money online, some of the standout postings would include:

Desi does have a humorous side (in case you can’t tell from his About Me page). The post about the Indian guy who got caught cheating on his wife on the radio and the one about Durham University sending a letter to all students saying they can’t masturbate in the shower had me laughing pretty hard. runs on the very clean three-column BloggingPro WordPress theme. Besides my Mistylook theme, I think the BloggingPro theme the second most popular theme on the Web. Desi hasn’t done anything to modify the colors so his blog doesn’t stand out from all the other BloggingPro themed blogs. The one advantage going for Desi is his photo on the upper right. It helps identify his blog immediately.

Desi Note Blog Monetization

Desi Notes is monetized with Google AdSense and Auction Ads. Their integration into the blog is straight from the the text book, with blended background and matching colors. Additional advertising income is made from PayPerPost and ReviewMe. Also, Desi Baba is available for hire. If you need help with a WordPress installation, he can do it for $50.

The only thing I would recommend, if Desi wishes to get a better bang from his ads, would be to try and embed the AdSense ad into his posts. Right now they are under the posts, which is a good location. However, I’ve found the click rate improved even more if you embed them directly into the post itself. Desi should also consider adding more ad networks to the mix (I can’t believe he’s not running Text Link Ads).

Review and Get a Free Linkback

Like hundreds of blogs out there, Desi Notes has copied my review for linkback idea. However, he is doing it with a twist. Instead of just linking back to you, Desi will list the high points of your review. You can see an example of how they look like in the first batch.

I wish Desi good luck with his blog and blog promotions. I’ve been reading it before he ordered this review. Blogging with Desi Baba offers a full feed RSS. I recommend you subscribe to it.

    I was just reading through for the first time earlier today. I like what I’ve read so far and have subscribed to his RSS.

  2. He’s a pretty funny guy.. even emailed me a few times about my blog. he just wants back links

    1. Thanks, and also who wouldn’t love getting linkbacks? :mrgreen:

    2. Wahlau.NET says:

      hehe..i would like to have a linkback too πŸ˜†

  3. Marc says:

    It’s interesting enough.

    As for his skipping the middle man article, by the time you’ve established all of the bases needed, you’ll be earning enough that you can well afford a middle man to help you avoid hassles…

    1. Still, you would earn more if you cut out the middleman, after you use the middleman to find your direct advertisers.

  21. Larry says:

    Hey, nice review. I heard about Desi Baba and his blog, but this kind of summary information is what you don’t get just by visiting the website. And funny story about him, if it is true, what you have quoted πŸ™‚

  22. manga fan says:

    Hm.. good site…
    hope my manga blog can get benefits from the site..

  23. Shypy says:

    Bobs post about this review in his blog was an interesting read too.

    Anyways, way to go Sunny :). Hope you get some real exposure…

  24. David Au says:

    It is not a hindsight. The day when you told me that you are going to commission someone to write
    an review on your blog, my guess that someone is John Chow. It is an expensive review in term of payout per review. It is a very cost effective review if we take into consideration of the reach and penetration of John Chow Effect in the blogsphere.

    I am confident that you will have a big boost in your blog traffic and the Google page ranking in the coming months. Meanwhile I wish you a lot of success in your campaign. I am a great fan of your DesiNOtes. As in my email to you sometime ago I want you to write a review on my blog. You choose the timing for this review. Await to hearing from you.

  25. just check out his site, and is bestofindya his site as well?

    1. No it’s not mine it actually belongs to an affiliate of mine.

  26. How’s your traffic doing so far since the review came out, Desi?

    1. Traffics have burst tremendously!

      1. Lewis Empire says:

        So it was a good investment?

      2. Jhon hebrink says:

        great trafic, good money, right Baba? πŸ’‘

  27. Hector says:

    Good to meet you Desi, I’ve also have been an internet marketer for over 3 years, although this is my first year blogging, I will subscribe to your blog from now

  28. webd360 says:

    I’ve been to this site before and some of his posts are very interesting (and most of them are also very informative).

  29. Ajay says:

    How much did u charge him to write about him??

  30. Free voip says:

    Its $400 mate. Get a review and get the money back.

    John will you give us a gurantee of a money back if we dont make $400 post-review? lol

  31. Thats one of the hilarious About Me I have read so far. Way to go buddy. Enjoyed reading your blog.
