Power Play Interviews: Markus Frind- 3 million dollars in 6 months


This is the first in a series of internet success stories you'll start seeing on the Power Play Blog. I hope you enjoy them!


Markus Frind, the creator of Plentyoffish.com, is a noteworthy success story, as he managed to take a niche previously ruled by giant corporations and give it his own brand of marketing prowess. A case of David vs. Goliath, where the little guy eventually comes out on top. Markus is the #1 "individual" ad publisher in terms of page views. Let's find out what some of his secrets are by sharing some tips with our readers. Feel free to comment!


Markus, what is your background in computer programming and how did it prepare you to become a webmaster?


The average number of page views per day is about 14 million in the last week. I'm getting another 80 million pageviews per day from users searching the site to see if there are any new posts. Really intense bandwidth!


When I go to your site, I notice that the ads are targeted to my region, but I haven't registered yet - can you explain to our readers how you accomplish this feat?


I'm just using ip2location.com- Basically, I take your IP, look it up in the database and it tells me what your city is. Then I bring in a list of users from your city, nothing magical.


Do most of your visitors come primarily from search engines (SERPS), or do you find that they come from other avenues? Do you actively advertise in social media?


Search engines account for something like 2% of my traffic. The vast majority of my traffic, like any other site with over 5 million page views per day, comes from word of mouth and repeat visitors.



The services on your site seem to be offered at no cost to members. Is there an advantage you have over your competitors that allows you to do this?


I have developed new algorithms that allow me to create a mega site at almost no cost. Several years ago, I created an algorithm that was thousands of times faster than the algorithm used in the 1990s to find a sequence of 22 prime numbers. At the time, a professor used several super computers and hundreds of regular computers for several years to find a record. I did the same thing on 1 computer in 2 weeks.


Fascinating!!! Are there any other sites you currently maintain, or is plentyoffish.com the only one?


It is the only site at the moment. I have a few other sites that I have registered for friends so they can learn about marketing/affiliation. Right now, I think 1 site is enough.


Any advice for someone looking to create a profitable internet business?


If anyone thinks what you're doing is a great idea, I'd say it's not .... Find something that no one else thinks is important and build a website with high traffic in that area. Also keep in mind that sites that have little monetization today but have traffic could be the gold mines of tomorrow. In the internet world, everything will be monetized at some point and traffic is king.


Traffic is king - very sage advice, Markus. One last question: how do you find the time to maintain such a great internet product? Surely you have other interests in life besides programming and monitoring websites?


On average it takes only one hour a day, but your job is very tiring. I spend the other two hours reading and watching what's going on.
