    Only have 1. In order to be of any value, your Paypal account needs to be attached to a bank account. You would need multiple bank accounts in order to really use more than one Paypal account.

    Of course, if you are only receiving money into the account and only spending it from the account, you don't need the bank account but that's probably not the case for most of us.

    You could easily have a personal and business account though. That would work.

      I believe your premise may be incorrect.

      I have 3 PayPal accounts. One each attached to 3 different cards. Only 1 is verified.

      I found this out by accident when I was testing my PayPal button links, AWeber links, etc. When I bought my own product with a different card, PayPal created another account.

      Hope this helps.

    I have only one PayPal account, but I have few emails attached with that PP account. Why you need several PP account?

    You are allowed to have one personal and one business.

    I occasionally talk to PayPal to see if they've come up with any way to let people have several business accounts, because after all I own and operate several businesses.

    It's been a few months since I talked to them about that, so I might call them about it again tomorrow.

    It would be nice to be able to have more than one...its difficult for them to see your business name instead of the website name since for me they know me by my site names, not some random business name we have as an umbrella for all my sites. If you make any headway CDarklock, please let us know here!

    I have 3 Paypal accounts. 2 in my name and one in my friends name. I needed to set it up that way to get money from friends accounts to mine and back and forth between my bank account in Kansas City and Wisconsin. Kind of confusing but it creates a good flow of cash and if one shuts down or freezes up I have no worries.

      I have one personal account and two business accounts because one is associated with 2 other partners (corporation). I disclosed everything to Paypal and they helped set up the account knowing full well of all of my business with them.

      There is nothing to own up to, and they were glad to help.

    You can have 1 premier (or business) account and 1 personal account at the same time.

    I personally have two. One is a personal account and the other is a business account. Paypal allows you to have two accounts: one personal and one premier or business account.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?

    Anyone who's read any of my recent posts will know that my focus on the moment is optimising my site and doing all I can to improve my ranking with the search engines. It's something I, mistakenly, didn't put as a priority when I first started and now I'm feeling the effects of that. But we live and learn and I'm happy to say I'm learning pretty darn quickly at the moment! Anyway I've got someone writing a series of blogs for me which are going to help with having regularly updated content, and I've been doing a bit of research on how to boost the ranking if they're just uploaded to my regular Wordpress site. I feel like I've wasted quite a lot of crucial time with this so I'm going hell for leather on it now.
