Conroy to ban Second Life in Australia

Australia to ban Second Life? This is been reported today under Conroy’s new Censorship Rules http://tinyurl.com/lz8f8x

The Australian Minister for Censorship has today confirmed what has been reported for nearly two years: online adult games including Second Life will be banned in Australia.

A spokesman for Censorship Minister Stephen “Goebbels” Conroy confirmed to Fairfax newspapers that “under the filtering plan, it will be extended to downloadable games, flash-based web games and sites which sell physical copies of games that do not meet the MA15+ standard.” In Australia, the MA15+ rating means that the content is restricted to those aged 15 and above. Australia does not have a R 18+ or similar rating for computer games, with all adult games automatically being classified as RC (Refused Classification.)

Alpha Inventions Traffic Disappears

As part of testing the responsiveness to blog updates, we added a specific paragraph to the Stories My Nana Tells blog regarding AlphaInventions; put in their website as a link and “submitted” the blog through their own site to their readers.

On each occasion, we got the message that there was no link to Alpha Inventions on the Stories My Nana Tell blog (which was incorrect) and only nine impressions in seven days have come to the blog from AlphaInventions.com, even though the site “validated” the address of the blog, from a total of four hundred and ten visitors.

Of the four hundred and ninety two visitors to Stories My Nana Tells, (from 7th to 23nd June 2009 – three weeks) only ten have been directed there by AlphaInventions -which is way below the kind of results in the past and nine of those came after the site had been submitted – which is quite the reversal of earlier experience.

So, what has happened there? The change to being a subscriber site seems to have diverted its ‘spiders’ away from other blogs that are not paying to be members.

Word of Mouth Works Best

One of my friends on LinkedIn – Andrew Spriegel – has given me a great press release on his blog A Born Entrepreneur and “Retired” Financial Planner Launches Yet Another Business announcing both my retirement and the launch of Stories My Nana Tells. Stories My Nana Tells

When a new business is being launched, nothing – but nothing – is more vauable than the support and promotion of friends. Andrew is also a great supporter of Kiva.org and you may already know that No Tall Poppies has a group there, doing micro loans.

Please take the time to read Andrew’s blog and visit him on LinkedIn Andrew Spriegel

Of course, there is an additional spin off from this: the three other businesses mentioned in the press release ( Guildford Landing Function Centre; Sarre Photography and Bob Litchfield (one of Australia’s most highly awarded commercial photographers) are now all enjoying much wider promotion around the world. Word of mouth referrals are priceless!
