About Carsten Cumbrowski


View Carsten Cumbrowski's profile on (OpenBC) View Carsten Cumbrowski's profile on LinkedIn

Hello. My name is Carsten Cumbrowski. I was born and raised in Berlin, Germany. I moved to the United States - more precisely, the beautiful San Joaquin Valley of California - in May 2000 and currently reside and work in Fresno, California.

Today I work with multiple companies, sharing my expertise on the Internet, Web and Database Development (Programming) and Internet Marketing - including Affiliate Marketing, Search Engine Marketing and Search Engine Optimization.

My experience extends over two decades. I have been working for more than five years in the relatively new Affiliate Marketing Industry and know both sides of the business (affiliate and affiliate manager). I have more than seven years experience in web development and almost 20 years in programming and computers in general. I have worked in SAP consulting in Germany and Switzerland for the SAP Modules FI (finance) and CO (controlling) and ABAP/4 Development for almost every SAP Module.

I do affiliate marketing as an affiliate and also have my own company and do some consulting work for people who need help with defining their internet marketing strategy. See my professional work page for details about my current and past professional activities.

Award Nominations

2008 Pinnacle Awards Nominee 2008 SEMMY Nominee


RelevantlySpeaking Blog Carsten Cumbrowski, Platinum Author

I am a blogger at, a well respected news source in the Internet marketing industry and winner of the Marketing Sherpa "Best Blog" Award in 2006. Wayne Porter, one of the co-founders of, personally invited to me to blog with ReveNews. Wayne's invitation was a great honor for me. Visit my Blog at and join the discussions.

I am also an Editor at Search Engine Journal a Blog about Search Engine Marketing and Optimization reporting about current News and Development in the Industry.

I was nominated for the Affiliate Summit 2008 Pinnacle Award in the category for "Best Blogger" because of my blogging at the mentioned blogs. The awards ceremony was held at the Affiliate Summit West 2008 conference and expo, which took place on February 24-26, 2008 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. I did not win the award, but it was a honor to be nominated together with two other famous bloggers in the industry.

Three of my posts that I made for are nominated for the 2008 SEMMYS (The Search Marketing "Emmys"), in the categories: SEO, blogs/blogging and social media. None of my posts were nominated, but it was an honor to have not only one, but multiple posts nominated, especially if you consider the number and quality of competition I was up against.

You can read all my recent posts made at and here at my Website at the Carsten Cumbrowski's Blogs and News page. Feel free to subscribe to them via RSS feed, Email and several other options.

I also write occasionally so-called "free to republish" articles that you can use for your own website, eZine, newsletter or print publication. Those articles are distributed via article directories, such as where I have the status of "Platinum Member". Additional articles that are not available for free republishing can be found in the article section of my site.

Some of my content is being published by, a blog operated by MediaTrust. I have contacts at Revenue Magazine, who sometimes ask for my opinion to industry related issues and are mentioned and cited in issues of the print edition of the magazine from time to time as well.

My Mediakit can be downloaded in PDF format here.

Internet Marketing and Development Resources Collections

Make sure to check my newand very comprehensive Resources Sections. I have gathered tons of useful resources and tools related to Web Development, Blogging, RSS, API, Webservices, Datafeeds, SQL Server and MySQL Database Development, Internet Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, Contextual Marketing, Keyword Targeting, Outsourced Program Management, Search Engine Ranking, Keyword Research, Competitor Analysis, Search Engine Marketing (SEM), Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Search Engines, Legal Issues (Trademarks, DMCA, Business Basics), Online Shopping, Copy Writing, Email Marketing, Display Advertising, Co-Registration / Lead Generation, Web Analytics, Web Hosting, Domain Registration, Outsourceing and a lot more over the past decade and I want to share all of these valuable resources with you.

The Purpose of This Site

My goal is to provide the most comprehensive collection of tools and resources related to Internet marketing. "Most comprehensive" does not mean biggest. I focus on quality rather than quantity. Being active in this industry for years helps me with the task of filtering out the "noise" from the vast amount of available resources on the Internet, but it does not make me "foolproof" nor a "know-it and seen-it all."

Why Am I Doing This?

To learn more about the project and my motivations, see my Editorial Note, which provides a much greater deal of details and should be able to answer most of your questions.

Feedback Is Wanted (Good and Bad)

Personal book recommendations
Personal Organization and Time Management are important, especially for Internet Marketers like us where 24 hours per day seem to be not enough to do what we want and need to do. I can recommend the following two books which did help me to tame the "beast" called "Overload". I believed that to be an impossible feat prior reading the books. Thank you Shawn Collins for recommending it to me and "it was my pleasure" to everybody who bought any of them and tamed his "beast" because of my recommendation.
