  1. Warren’s one of the absolute best examples of the greatness that can be achieved by focusing on just a couple of your top domains and pouring your heart into growing them each day.

  2. very nice website and its clean looking.. he is doing a great job.

    does anyone know what kind of software he is running on things..??

    not a heavily searched term from wordtracker..never knew bobble heads was that big of a business…tons of advertisers on google.

  3. I use a CMS, it’s the only way I can run all my various sites without having to rely on a tech support team. Most people use Joomla or something like that, but I’m a Windows guy so I use DotNetNuke (open source) which is designed for the Windows platform.
