Help you reduce ads cost and sell more using retargeting, so you'll retarget people clicking your shortened links

October 13, 2021 Implement a link rotator in Pixela

A link rotator is a type of shortener that routes visitors to different destinations.

It can be used for A/B testing, sharing traffic with different partners, or showing visitors different messages when they click on the same link more than once.

I'm extending Pixela to support link rotation.

I'm implementing the following rotation rules:

  • Sequential. Redirect to the next destination page
  • Weighted. Allocate a percentage to each destination page
  • Random. Redirect casually to destination pages
  • Smart. Redirect to different pages based on specific conditions such as:
    • device
    • platform
    • operating system
August 6, 2021 Optimizing www/blog websites for SEO

I'm optimizing pixela.io for SEO using schema markup.
I've been researching. It seems that schema markup is one of the most powerful forms of SEO.

I hope that schema markup can boost pixela.io visibility in the search engine result pages. At least, get pixela.io indexed as rich snippets.

June 29, 2020 Got my first customer

How do you get your initial users?
The idea is to start talking about your product even if it's not 100% ready. We need to have a feedback loop and validation for the things that we are building.

So, after I finished with MVP, I started out the marketing tasks.
I defined my marketing persona and started to target the audience that matches that persona.
I visited several forums, Facebook groups to leave comments and start talking about Pixela.
I also submitted Pixels to Hacker News.
Meanwhile, I was tweeting about the new features, design, and everything that I was doing for Pixela.

Fortunately, I got my first custom to reconfirm my assumption and improve Pixela.
