Adwords180 Review - Good Or Bad?

After having an opportunity to see first hand what the guide is all about, I decided to write this Adwords180 review detailing what I found. If you’re an affiliate marketer of any skill or experience level, or if you’re looking to break into the lucrative affiliate marketing business, you’ll find this of particular interest. In this short review I’ll go over what you can expect to get out of Adwords180 and give my opinion as to whether or not it is worth the money to purchase.

The first thing that I noticed about Adwords180 is that it is unlike any guide I’ve seen on the market. It doesn’t give you page upon useless page of why affiliate marketing is a viable source of income, how to sign up for an Adwords account, how to sign up for Clickbank or worthless bonuses that have a supposed value of almost $500. Yawn.

Instead, what you can expect to get out of Adwords180 are reasons why Adwords is a losing battle for most people, how you can be lazy and still make money, how you can pay less than once cent per click and how you can crush your competition. The guide even comes with an 8 week guarantee!

In fact, the tools that Adwords180 will give you are so powerful the creator is considering removing it from the market altogether. Adwords180 gives you so many unknown and useful tips and tricks, if too many people use them they may become diluted and stop working as well. By limiting how many people have access to the guide that becomes impossible.

In case you can’t tell, I am an enthusiastic supporter of Adwords180. With a price tag of less than $100, it pays for itself after just a couple of days! I highly recommend Adwords180 to anyone who is tired of wasting money on guides that say the same useless things over and over again.

The articles you post on your web site can explain uses for your products, testimonials, answer questions from customers, or describe products.

Seo - Writing The Seo Tip Sheet

Compilation writing is as simple as gathering facts together, rewording them and putting them in some kind of list. You only need about 250 words to write an ad or a blog. When it comes to the Internet, if you can make a list, you have the talent to write!

This is the type of article that you see that has suggestions such as “Top Ten Ways To Waterproof Your Sun Deck ” or “Three Surefire Ways to Get Your Cat to Swallow a Pill.” All you really need to write this type of article is a bit of know how about what you are writing about or good researching abilities.

The idea is to find tips that are unique or that are genuine answers to questions that people ask on about the topic. The most successful approach is to actually gear the article so that it makes the product you are writing about the answer to your question so people are encouraged to click on that affiliate link and buy it.

It is even better if you can make your top ten lists humorous. Think David Letterman when you think of your own top ten lists. A good example would be something like “The Top Ten Ways to Move in With Your Kids Without Them Noticing.” This is a successful formula and the type of article that is often picked up by some huge websites, especially those catering to family, shopping and entertainment. It just never seems to go out of style and the Top Ten List can also accommodate a range of sense of humor – from the very savage and scatological to the very light and child-like.

Tip sheets don’t often have humor but they are “evergreeners” when it comes to information. If the information in them is valuable and timeless you will always have visitors to that tip page on your site.

Seo - Where To Find An Seo Ghostwriter

Sometimes you have great ideas but no talent for writing. This is when it becomes a good idea to hire a writer. Or you may be a very busy professional or expert in your field that is already really busy but needs an e-book or scores of SEO articles and have no time to write them. If either of these situations describes you, then you might consider hiring a ghostwriter.

There are several sites on the web where writers advertise their talents but the best two for ghostwriting SEO, blog writing and e-books are and Both of these sites require a paid membership but it is well worth it as that fee (which is paid by both clients and providers) is there to keep the rank amateurs out of your face. The competence level on both of these sites is pretty high. On both sites writers bid competitively to get your job and you can assess a writer by looking at their comments and feedback. However keep in mind that both these sites are slanted to get the providers to do writing for as cheap as possible and many inethical marketers give bad feedback in hopes of getting a discount on their product. Talking directly to a writer on guru or elance and asking for samples is the best indication of whether you are hiring the best ghostwriter for you or not.

Also it seems that of all the brokerage or agency type sites on the web most freelance writers who specialize in web writing seem to have conglomerated on either of those two sites, so if you are serious about hiring they are definitely worth checking out if you are looking for high quality writing. Guru and elance are also the cheapest places to find SEO ghostwriters on the Internet as well.

Items of diamond jewellery often come with certificates establishing their grades, but loose diamonds may not have these. If you're not sure about the grading process, ask to see a certificate or get the loose diamonds which interest you independently graded before you buy or sell. Getting a professional appraisal is also important if you want to insure your loose diamonds.

Like any other area of the economy, the market in loose diamonds is subject to fluctuations, so make sure you keep your knowledge of standard prices up to date. Once you become familiar with them, you'll find loose diamonds fascinating for their beauty and variety. Dealing in loose diamonds can be a great way to make money and also something you'll enjoy.

Seo - How To Organize Your Seo Web Copy

Some people have no idea of how to begin to optimize their copy as it seems a daunting task. If writing your web copy seems overwhelming it is likely because you have not organized the intentions of the piece, especially when it comes to thinking of the copy in terms of what you want to accomplish in SEO.

Your very first goal is to give your advertisement or piece of web copy an intention. Determine exactly what it is that you want your online advertisement to sell. Is it about membership conversions, giving them a free ebook or directing them to another page. Common goals of web pages are to create anticipation about a new product, generate leads, qualify prospects or simply introduce yourself as a new vendor on the scene.

The trick is to decide on one goal and stick to it. Online copywriting that tries to accomplish to many goals at once often sends mixed messages to potential subscribers or consumers. Once you have a mission for your copy the rest is easy to accomplish.

The best way to organize your copy is to first think about why you would buy your product or service if you were a customer. Make a list of all of your key selling points and benefits or features and then take the trouble to find those features in a keyword inventory too. Decide which benefit or feature fits best with the intention you have decided on for your advertisement. Keeping these elements in mind is an effective way to find inspiration and prevent writer's block. Once you have crafted one great headline that voices both your intention and your key benefit in one line that is shorter than seven words then the rest of your SEO copywriting becomes very easy to create.

Why The Visual Appearance Of Your Blog Matters

Keep in mind that as long as form follows function on your blogging site it will be considered to be well search engine optimized. This also applies to the visual components of your blog.

There are several ways that visual elements are going to play a part in how others see your blog. First of all there is your title. You may have to make several artistic decisions just around this including, what font you want to use, whether the font is in color, the size of the font and whether or not your title will wrap into an image. It is very common for free blogs to allow you to choose a template with an image or upload an image of your own that will be a mainstay image that sits on top of or behind the title.

It is quite important for your title to be relevant to the content of your actual blog. Although shots of waterfalls or forests might be attractive, they really don’t say much about your business. It is best to show an image that relates somehow to your blog concept. So if you are marketing outhouses, have a picture of one on your blog or at least a shot of a roll of toilet paper. Don’t forget that humor succeeds visually often as well.

For instance if you are writing a blog about aromatherapy, you would be much better off to have a blog that shows perfume in some form as an image rather than showing a skyscape of fluffy clouds.

The best images convey a message that expresses the purpose of the blog.
The best blogs always look professional and unique and they are not cluttered with an excess of visual imagery either. Stick to one type of design theme and don’t stray from it to make your blog appear as sleek and stylish as possible.

Seo - Using Plr To Increase Web Presence

The best way to make PLR content (public label rights) work for you is to find free material that is in a niche that is currently hot or trendily. If you don’t know how to do this then try imitating what hot PLR content sellers such as Norm Hallet and Vic Johnson are doing. It is also a good idea to note how the successful sellers are marketing their product and then simply imitate their selling methods the best that you can.

A simple and efficient way to make money from your public label rights content is to turn it into a mini e-course. This is a series of educational special reports that are sent to your subscribers by email. One of the intentions of this content is to help you build your own email list filled with returning customers.

Yet another to way to increase your web presence and therefore ultimately your profits is to create niche articles from existing PLR content and then use the content for syndication. Good sites to submit them to are and You can also put these articles up for sale or on your blog. At the bottom of each article is a back link to your site and of course the more back links you get the more traffic and Adsense clicks the more income you will generate on your search engine optimized website.

As with the content on your website, the key to successful article submission is to make sure that your articles are absolutely original unique. This may mean changing existing content by using your Word program’s thesaurus to change words in the article. For instance if the headline of the article is “Secrets To Growing Orchids ” it could be changed to “ Fool Proof Prize Winning Orchids.”

Seo - Setting Daily, Weekly And Monthly Goals For Yourself

Writing SEO requires a bit of skill and also being competitive with yourself. It also requires discipline – knowing when to stop optimizing one site (or a section of a site) and move on to something new.

There is no greater way to achieve clarity about this then to figure out much money you need to make a month and then break it down into the daily and weekly sums you need to make. For instance if your overhead is $3,000 month including all expenses and you want to make a 50% profit with your business then you would have to make $4,500 a month or $150 a day.

Your next step is to sit down and look at all the different ways you have of making money as an SEO and go for it. Make sure to estimate in projected sales, membership conversions and how and when you expect this income to come flowing in.

In a nutshell, setting goals for yourself works, even if you are not a really accurate bookkeeper or project manager. Nobody sure why this works but it helps to set yourself a slightly higher goal every month and try to compete with yourself to elevate your income. Many gurus talk about how using this type of system effectively doubles one’s income in just a couple of a month.

For instance if I set myself a goal of $5,000 a month one month I almost always make near to that amount or at least a substantial amount more then what I was making even I don’t make that mark. There is truth to the saying that if you aim low you get low results. Of course this is also a form of positive thinking that applies to all businesses and not just SEO. The key is to shoot as high as possible in terms of your business goals and take it from there.

SEO - How Cloaking Sabotages SEO

One of the biggest newbie mistakes made by people first trying out search engine optimization on their websites is to try and cloak it. Most people don’t even realize that they are practicing cloaking when they do it and even perceive it as a legitimate form of SEO but the problem is that the big search engines will penalize and blacklist your site for doing it.

In a nutshell, cloaking is the practice of using keywords and metatags to show a search engine spider a different page then what your human visitor to your site is going to see. The purpose of doing this is to drive visitors to a site. An example would be a psychic site that uses the name of famous psychics such Sylvia Browne or John Edwards to promote its services even though they sell no books or services by those famous psychics who have high keyword popularity. Some high-ranking pages are cloaked simply to prevent others from stealing the underlying code but this is no longer such a problem as it is not just keyword content or metatags that the search engine algorithms look at nowadays when they go to index a site.

Using search terms in this phony way can put your site immediately at risk of being removed promptly from the Internet by a search engine. Search engines are becoming increasingly cognizant of the techniques used to try to fool them, and they are also becoming better at detecting and removing pages that violate their terms of service. This is why it is also important to be careful of any kind of SEO service in case it is using a process such as “cloaking” to boost your site in the page rankings. Underhanded tactics such as cloaking only work until the search engines catch you.

Cost Of A Signature Pad

Do you need to buy a new signature pad for your business? Are you tired of using an old pad that is no longer suiting your needs? If so, there is nothing that you should be worried about. Nobody likes to spend money on things like this, but all in all, a new signature pad may be necessary for your business to continue to run at a high level of efficiency. There are a lot of signature pads on the market today, but the good thing is that most of them are reasonably priced. In other words, you are not going to run into a problem with paying too much money.

So how much does a signature pad cost? As mentioned above, this will have a lot to do with what you want, as well as what you are looking to spend. If you have an unlimited budget, every signature pad that you come across is going to look just fine. But realistically, this is not the case for most people. Generally speaking, you will notice that the lowest priced signature pads usually come in right around $110. These are not the best devices in the industry, but for basic needs, they should be able to help you with everything that you could want.

On the other side of things, if you want a large number of features and benefits, you can look at the top of the line signature pads. These can cost in upwards of $500, but with that being said you will get much more for your money. Most people who are in the market for a signature pad know what they need because they have used them in the past. If this sounds like you, your best bet would be to simply buy a signature pad that is like the one that you used in the past. Of course, if you want to upgrade, that is fine as well.

All in all, there is no reason to spend much more than $500 on a signature pad. And in most cases, you will never even approach this price level.

Tips For Residual Income From Home

Building a residual income is something that most online business people know about and are doing. Residual income is quite easy to do through the internet marketplace.

Building and managing a residual income source will take some initial work. Residual income is not based on the idea of doing nothing but getting paid. If this is your plan you may be disappointed. It is rather based on the idea of doing something one time and getting paid over and over. Those are two completely different concepts and it is important for a person to understand that.

One of the things to keep in mind when building residual income from home is to choose a residual income source that is interesting. This is a key component for success. A person should just not choose any opportunity they run across. To be successful a person has to be passionate about the opportunity and really have that drive to succeed with it.

Another thing to keep in mind is that residual income will take a little time to build. Just because a person gets their residual income source set up does not mean that the money is just going to pour in. It is still a business and it will take time to secure customers and turn a profit.

As mentioned, residual income opportunities are real businesses that require work. A person is going to have to be willing to put up that initial time investment to get the business off its feet. This may involve a vigorous marketing campaign or even setting up a website.

Residual income is a nice idea. It is great to think about doing something once and getting paid for it for years to come, but a person has to stay focused and they have to be serious about it. Many times people fail with residual income because they do not take it seriously.

Seo - Why Entertaining People Is Good Seo

Anything that attracts visitors to your website is considered to be good SEO. The fact is that people love interactive sites. This appeals to both their instincts to graze and play. Horoscopes, games, live audio, music, chat rooms, diaries, blogs, videos and any kind of interactive gimmick gives the people want they want. They also like things such as budget calculators, web tools, schedulers, alarm clocks and any kind of interactive wizard.

Sometimes you have to design this material yourself, but most of the time you can find this kind of Internet plug in gadget by searching for them on the web. Many web hosts also offer free gadgetry that is designed to amuse your visitors.

Also, depending on the nature of your business you might be lucky enough to find an affiliate who will supply you with templates or html that can put the appropriate flash animation or interactive game or quiz on your site. An example of his kind of tool in action is at That is an interactive Tarot reading site that can be downloaded onto a psychic site.

If your site is designed to be like a seminar or a journal then you can also use such devices as the video clip of the day, the song of the day or the audio feed of the day.

The only drawback to search engine optimizing your site in this way is that sometimes if you use too many flash animations or visuals many pages on your website can be read as blank pages by the search engines. This can result in penalization as it the spiders automatically see it as being an incomplete or unfinished site that is not yet ready to be indexed or catalogued for the purposes of ranking in the search engine pages.

Seo - Three Design Elements That Sabotage Seo

When designing your website there are three major design elements that you should stay away from in order as they can sabotage even your best efforts at search engine optimization. These three elements to avoid are flash animation, javascript and HTML coding mistakes.

First of all, search engines perceive sites with flash as being "empty spaces." Rather than checking out the content, most search engines just discard the URL. God knows how many people's sites have been rejected because a spider inside a search engine denoted their flash as blank space!

If you are using Javascript or CSS in your pages, you probably stuck it at the top of your pages. Remember that search engines tend to rate what they find at the top of pages a bit higher so avoid anything that a search engine considers to be fluff -- and that would be pages and pages of Java enabled script. A better way to do things is put the Javascript (or CSS) in a separate file, and include it into your pages with a single tag. To avoid this kind of headache however, I advise that you avoid using java script at all. The worst thing that can happen is that a search engine spider will read the javascript as a malfunctioning page. It happens all the time!

It is also crucial to make sure your HTML is correct. Just because your page is displaying nicely does NOT mean that the code itself doesn't contain errors. Search engines read HTML not what shows up on you pretty pages. The more perfect your HTML code is, the more likely a search engine is to rank it higher. This is why it might be a practical part of an SEO strategy to hire an expert to clean up your code if it is all messed up.

Are you one of the tens of thousands of working folks out there who is trying to decide whether to go for the gold and work at home from your computer? Are you searching, or on the verge of searching, for that perfect home internet business? You’ve actually picked a great time for it.

There’s a whole new industry on the Internet out there to help you, especially if you’re a novice in e-commerce. They call it Plug-in Profit Sites, or PIPs for short. There are different types of these plug-in profit sites. Most rely on affiliate marketing techniques to dribble in the dough. But a few are more ambitious.

Recently, automated profit sites are cropping up that seem to be flourishing. A case in point is the coastal vacations automated sales system.

Tropical locations grab the lion’s share of the vacation market. When everyone closes their eyes to dream about paradise on earth, a beach and sun-honeyed palm trees is most always what they visualize. What could be more fun than making such dreams come true… and making a living doing it from home?

The automated sales system PIP we looked at in this field rewards your ability to drive traffic to your system website. If they make a sale because of you, you get a check for between $1,000 and $9700 dollars.

Some of these coastal vacation PIPs use web conferencing and online presentations to inform their prospects about their services. They also pay professional marketing assistants to follow up on prospects.

Many smart people labored many intensive hours to create these fully automated vacation fantasy systems. It’s worth looking into how an automated sales system can work for you. Who knows, you and the plug-in may be made for each other! And wouldn't that be a fantastic opportunity for you!

Seo - Should You Share A Blog?

Sometimes it is difficult to keep up with a blog especially if your blog is part of a field in which there are many changes or developments such as celebrity news or technology developments.

There are several blogs on the net where several contributors share one blog to make sure it is always fat and juicy and laden with fresh information. In this blog format it would not be unusual to see six or seven lawyers contributing to one blog or a group of book reviewers writing reviews (possibly hired by someone who is linking to a big book store like Amazon.)

Whether or not you want to share your blog comes down to how you want to identify yourself to your readers –as an expert who knows more than the rest or as an expert who is open to other people’s opinions. However these types of shared expert blogs often blossom into genuine information and reference material portals that can bring you a lot of attention, traffic and business. The idea is to not let any other expert that you are sharing a blog with outshine you. Such arrangements work best if a firm schedule is set about whose turn it is to write a blog and if certain themes are assigned by the group and then stuck to so that nobody is treading on anyone else’s toes.

Another possibility is to join a web site that already has multiple blogs on it. This is a good option if you want to build an audience quickly as many of these blog sites, such as all ready have a lot of traffic and your blog is hosted under the umbrella of their advertising. However the problem with this tact is that you don’t have your own unique URL, which can make you slightly harder to find in the search engines.

Why to Choose Paid Hosting Instead of Free?

Many of you faced with the question today of having a web site.
And after developing your site you will probably starting to find good free hosting.
What's the catch with the free hosting providers?

There is nothing in this world for free. Ask yourself a question - how do they survive?
They have to pay for servers, bandwidth, server software and got no income?

The answer is - advertising, yeah they place an ads on your site and usually have a tracking tools to decide
whether traffic on your site click on their ads and generate income or not.
If not do not be surprised your account closed.

- Free hosting companies usually place their own ads on your site.
- There are some free hosting companies that do not place an ads but if you get some traffic on your site
your free provider may close your account and place his own page with ads instead of your site.
- PHP, CGI, Perl and many other tech tools are disabled.
- You have very limited disk space and limited bandwidth.
- You have not memorized by others address like /
- You don't have useful tools like Site builder, add-on scripts which some paid hosting companies offer for free.
- You don't have email address similar as your account name.
- A lot of free hosts change their Terms without warning you.
- Because they are offering free hosting, the majority of them can not afford to offer 24/7 or any support.
- Very few free web hosts offer a control panel with their plans.

With pay host you eliminate all this inconveniences except one - it's not free.
I know this is not simple step to decide to pay for hosting. So if you need just information
page for your friends then free hosting option is right for you. But if this is your presentation
site or you plan to do some business and need tools like PHP, CGI etc...
I'd recommend to take a look at paid hosting companies.

Subtler Ways Of Promoting A Website

When you are an owner or a manager of a website that is used for business purposes, chances are that you spend a great deal of your day looking for different ways of promoting a website. If you are just a small time business owner or computer entrepreneur, you may not have the luxury of sitting around all day thinking of ingenious methods of promoting your website.

In such cases, there are only a few minor things you might want to keep in mind when it comes to promoting. First of all, you don’t want to make it completely obvious. There are subtle ways that you can thread your presence through the internet and build traffic to your site.

IF you specialize in a certain niche, you might want to consider writing articles for article directories. Although these articles are not always paid (and if they are paid, they are not usually paid very well), web site owners will normally provide links back to your website along with a byline, giving you and your site credit for the information in the article.

Also, upping your ranking in the major search engines, such as Google and AltaVista are great ways of promoting your website. If you can optimize your web content to include keyword rich content, you are on the first major step toward promoting your web site.

Also, have some way of rewarding your site visitors for taking time out of their day to visit your particular site. The way that many people choose to do this is to provide a newsletter, or allow the visitor to put in their email to subscribe to a newsletter or some kind of alert. This gives your visitors a reason and a legitimate opportunity to visit your site at a later time, which means you are able to promote your website even further by making sure it is up to date and fresh.

Seo - Sloppy Headers Can Sabotage Your Seo

One thing that can confuse search engine spiders are sloppy headers on your website. It is just so easy to miss this one little thing especially if you are using a site builder on a host like, or What happens is that while you are building the website you may be asked to save the website as something when you go to work on a new content page. However you may forget the non-visible header area of a page when saving it causing search engines to ignore the page because they see it as non-functioning or duplicate content. Don’t think this problem is limited just to site builders. It is also very easy to forget about your headers for web pages while saving your site in do-it-yourself site software such as Dreamweaver.

The ultimate result of this type of sloppiness is a site that has a title that is the same on every page. The meta tags on every page are also identical. Only the visible content is different. To avoid this stick to a regime of developing your new content on the page and making a note to yourself to always develop the title for the new content page before moving onto the next one. This way you don’t forget to practice some SEO techniques on your header area as well.

Remember that failure to do this can be a disaster. Most search engines will penalize pages that they see as identical by not including them in their search engine indexes at all. Another consequence of having sloppy titles is some strange looking indexing of your URL when it does finally get listed that does not make use of any of the keywords that have been laid out so lovingly and painstakingly on your web site pages.

Procrastination Kills

Ever find some things you start without ever thinking about it. Other things just get set aside and end up at the bottom of your "to do list". How about I will get around to do it? Quit procrastination and start taking steps to end this dreadful disease.

Many people today suffer from procrastination. Stopping procrastination is not very hard actually. It is just hard in our minds. When making decisions on what is important to do and then getting it done fast. This will put you in the fast lane towards opportunities and success. There are two simple ways to put an end to procrastination. The first way to put an end to procrastination is to make a decision. Either do it or don't do it. If you are going to do it put it in your planner right away and block a time to get it done. By making a decision, there is no reason to procrastinate. Most decisions take only a few minutes to decide on. When you ignore or walk away from the decisions, you will pay a consequence at the end, whether it will be good or bad.

The second way is to learn to recognize your behaviors. Some people avoid making decisions by watching T.V., going shopping, going to bars, all attempts to hind the decision that needs to be made at that time. I know this first hand because I have used shopping to walk away from decisions that need to be taken care of in the past. Ignoring issues will not make them go away. It takes self-discipline and self control to break this dreadful disease. However once you break through this barrier, your life will start to transform. Amazing things will start to happen in both your personal and business life. So recognize your behaviors, step up, and make a decision. Take action today.

SEO - Why Poets Sometimes Write Great Google Ads

If you are a poet you have probably realized that there is not much work that you can do well that fits in the category of SEO writing. In fact you might be devoid of a lot of online work in general. Usually all poets get online is the occasional assignment where someone wants a toast written for a speech, a greeting for a card or a specialty poem written for his or her site for his or her holidays. Often this writing pays less then $50.

However if you are really good with words you might be successful at writing for clients who need Google Adword Ads. This is kind of like writing like a haiku and is especially suited to the poetic mind, which is used to writing within word perimeters. There are letter, word and character count limits so many poets find writing Google Ads a delightful challenge.

Google Adword writing is considered to be a specialty niche and you can charge between $20 - $30 for each three line Ad. There is a knack to it and many marketers just can’t do it. People are more than willing to pay this for an ad that gets them traffic on Google. The trouble is you have to be good at it and understand the business of keywords and how to SEO a Google Ad in the first place.

Keep in mind this is not a guaranteed income if you are a poet and in terms of freelance writing the equivalent of cold calling. However if you are a poet it might be worth your while to post a profile on elance or guru as some SEO marketers looking for this skill do realize that poets are the best at this type of writing! It is definitely a niche worth developing not only for a client’s business but also in terms of maximizing your own business.

Consistent Branding Part Of Internet Marketing

dWhen people visit your internet website, they should know what site they are on regardless of the page they visit. There should be a consistent look and feel to every page, and most sites follow this tenet, but many times forget about the little details that sit idly on your pages.

Icons for going back to a previous page, for printing the page or even the icons that line your menu should all follow the same theme as your site as part of your internet marketing effort. Every aspect of your website should be about your brand. Whether it stands out from the rest is not nearly as important as standing with the rest of your site. If a visitor travels to another of your pages, which looks different, they may believe they accidentally left your site and then leave it all together.

A simple concept for internet marketing branding is your logo as an icon that can be used as an icon for everything on your site. It can sit as a static logo next to a text link or the icon that is clicked when a person wants to refer a friend to your site. Obviously it will need to be much smaller than the main logo on your page or other areas to be used as a menu icon, perhaps as small as 16 x 16 pixels, but the reduced image will continue your branding throughout the page and offer a benefit to your internet marketing effort.

Additionally, with this level of branding throughout your site there will be no doubt of which site your visitor is on and if you use a smaller version of your logo as the icon to bookmark your page, it will help sear your name into their memory. Remember, returning visitors often buy more than first time visitors and keeping your image in their minds will aid your internet marketing efforts.

Site Build It Review

My Site Build it review is the personal story of how I started out on the Net. At that time I had no idea how to build a web site.

I did not have the HTML skills to build my own and I certainly could not afford to pay a web designer!

When I stumbled upon Site Build It, my prayers were answered. Now I could put all those ideas into action by building my own web site for an affordable price.

How did Site Build It give me this freedom?

Well,for a start I did not need to know HTML,FTP etc. - the software does it all!

I got my own domain name and unlimited pages in my web site. Web hosting also part of the package.

There was also Full HTML Editor compatibility - i.e. you can build your web pages in your favourite HTML Editor such as Dreamweaver and upload them to SBI. A webmaster's dream!

Included also was:

1) Brain storming of the profitable keywords which ensures high ranking in the search engines.

2) Automatic search engine submission of your web pages.

3) In-built facility to mail out your own ezine.

4) Link exchange facility - allowing you to choose what sites to link with.

5) A Spam Checking tool to ensure your ezine reaches its intended audience.

6) Automatic checking of your search engine ranking position.

Are there any disadvantages?

Well, Site Build It is aimed at the small and home business end of the market. If you want a site
for a large portal with a large database, it is not the correct choice.

However, if you have a dream of building your own small business with the proven record of Ken Evoy's Site Build It, then I would recommend you look at this video Site Build It review and see how other people are succeeding:

SEO - Using Blog Comments To Increase SEO

One interesting and little known form of SEO is leaving keyword-enriched comments on other people’s blogging sites. This is the secret to SEO success that many bloggers use to attract them to their bummarketing links or to their website selling products. In fact leaving comments on other people’s blogs that are relevant to your own can double and even triple the visitors to your own site.

Your first task is to do a Technorati search by posting an article and then searching for your article to see whom else might be blogging on it. This is one way of finding blogs you can exchange links with. Yet another way is to do a Google search to try and pick the right blog.

One key to picking good blogs to comment on is to pick ones that have high quality content and keywords that are similar to your own but don’t have many other comments on them. If you choose a blogger that is deluged with comments he or she may not bother to backline to you as you are at the end of the caboose.

One way to get a blogger to pay attention to you is to ask a provocative yet relevant question of the material he or she is posting. This not only attracts people to the link to your blog it also will get the attention of the owner of the blogger site who may even choose to engage in a long exchange of comments with your. This is great for both of you as it is organic SEO full of the terms and phrases that people naturally search for and the search engines will love to pick up the naturally refreshed content. This is the best kind of SEO because a) you don’t have to pay for it and b) it is great word of mouth that often reinforces your credibility as an expert.

SEO - Can You Start An SEO Business For Free

Many Internet gurus will lead you to believe that you can make a ton of money as an SEO marketer without making any initial investment into it as a business. This is completely false. Although it is true that you can write a blog strewn with affiliates on a free site, or make yourself up a fancy online business card on a build it yourself website you are probably not going to make much money unless you have a little bit of money to invest in a high quality website with a decent domain name.

Many gurus who write books about this stuff will tell you that you can optimize your site for free by using certain keywords to describe your site etc. This is simply not true. In fact the trend in marketing is for the search engines to start penalizing sites that have too many keywords repeated throughout the main body of the page. This is why you need to be quite clever about your SEO marketing.

The reason is that it is completely impossible to make money on the Internet without an investment is because you must count your time as an investment. Surely your time is worth something and if you don’t value it, who will? Even if you have arranged not to pay for anything online, you need to pay yourself something. So if you pay yourself ten bucks per 500 word SEO article and write eight a day then you need to factor in the cost of your time as eighty bucks a day.

You can make money on the Internet as a SEO marketer without a big investment, but you will not make a six-figure income! You are probably looking in the below $5,000.00 region in that case. The intelligent thing to then do is invest part of that $5,000 back into your SEO business.

Income Ideas Online And Offline

Thinking of ways to earn money is always easier when there is a need to earn it. Try to remember that your goal is not to replace your current income. It is important not to give up your job in order to make money from another source. When first beginning to earn money online, you usually will only earn a supplemental income.

It is possible to get a part time job at a retail store. Many are open 24 hours and will allow you to work at your convenience. This is especially true during the holiday season when many retailers become extremely busy and are looking for additional help. However, working away from home and traveling to and from your job could take even more time away from your family.

You may want to consider a part time career in wholesaling. You would be able to purchase merchandise at wholesale prices and resell these products online at retail prices.

You can find your products by visiting wholesale outlets. Then you can build a retail website in which you can sell your items. If you are unsure of how to build a website, you can always hire someone to do this for you. In addition, many online pass-through banking companies are offering a free secure shopping cart. This will help you collect money from your customers quickly and safely.

There are many companies that will help you make money at online auctions. They provide the product and take care of all of the shipping and handling. In return, you will need to obtain an auction ID and then you can list their products online.

Sometimes the company will charge you a monthly fee for the right to list their products at an auction. You make money from the retail price of the product, minus the cost you paid to obtain the merchandise and any listing fees.

Using A Blog To Connect With Your Readers

Perhaps the simplest definition of a blog is that of a journal or serial newsletter that provides fresh content for the reading on a timely basis. However what most people don’t realize is that a blog is not just a virtual space where you put your thoughts or the latest news about your products or services. It is more than just an online press release or a way of announcing things. It is also a journal that can” talk back to you” as there are usually spaces for individuals to respond to what you have to say and offer feedback. This content is a natural form of SEO that will bring interested people back to your site (and also hopefully to your affiliate links) again and again.)

Obviously as a forum, the blog offers more intimate contact with your readers and is less formal than a press release or the usual customer feedback reviews forms you find on larger sites. Also you can moderate or edit any posts left on your blog so that you don’t end up with a site filled with spam or undesirable comments. The ability to editorialize gives you the opportunity to also control the appearance of your site.

Blogs are usually more entertaining for people read then press releases or the usual web site copy simply because it is written in a more informal way. It also allows a writer to express a very personal or even partisan point of view, which is not something that is even found in contemporary journalism. Many people enjoy the fact that blogging is a way of taking your reputation out of the hands of journalists and critics and letting the public decide for themselves about what you have to say, what you have to offer and your credibility.

Establishing Good Working Habits At Home

If you decide to work from home on the premise that you can do anything you want to do with your time, then you are up for some really rough reality check. Technically, you do own your time when you are working from home. You do not have a boss who will call your attention if you start loafing on your job or give you directions when you start to stray of target. However, the bad news is, if you do not have self discipline, you may end up not being able to finish a job at all. Note that time can be your friend if you spend it wisely but it can so be your enemy if you do not know how to make use of it.

In order for you to succeed in your home business, you should learn how to discipline yourself and have some respect for time. According to experts, people perform better if they have some kind of a working pattern. Having a kind of habit or pattern in what you do gives you a sense of stability and direction. If you are really serious about supporting your family through your home business, then you should make sure that you establish a good working pattern and stick to it.

How does one establish good working habits? There is only one way to establish good working habits and that is self-discipline. Since you are now your own boss, you must now feel accountable to yourself. Set a goal and stick to it Remind yourself everyday that you have a goal to me and that you are going to meet that goal today. Of course it is not easy to impose self-discipline but if you are really serious about getting somewhere with your home business, then you must learn to abide by your own rules. For instance, if you say that you start working at eight in the morning, then you better be at your desk at that time. Do not make excuses for yourself.

Effective Internet Marketing Snares More Viewers

Starting an internet business is easy and in most cases relatively cheap since overhead is almost nonexistent. It is so easy, in fact, that thousands of internet businesses are started everyday. The hard part is making them successful and that requires some effort and possibly some investment.

In order to invite visitors to your internet business site, you first have to determine the type of visitor you are hoping to attract. If providing a product geared toward a specific audience then your internet marketing efforts will have to be aimed at the same group. Every time you change the product to focus your effort on you will also have to adjust the focus of your internet marketing.

One of the most cost effective methods of internet marketing is through affiliate programs. There are many sites that are willing to place you advertisement on their website for the promise of a commission if you realize any sales from that advertisement. This works in favor of both parties in that you do not pay for advertising unless it is successful and the other website wants your ad to be successful so it can make money.

Using affiliate internet marketing you can get your ad on thousands of additional websites without paying a dime for the advertising until you see the results. Try telling a print advertiser that you will pay for the ad only if it results in sales and see how often your ad will run. One of the tricks to affiliate internet marketing is to keep track of which sites are carrying your ads.

Do these websites represent the values with which you want your business name to be associated and you receiving any traffic from your exposure on their pages can be used to determine the viability of leaving your name there.

SEO Web Design For Text

It is well known that the best way to search engine optimize a website in terms of its design is to keep it as free as of many bells and whistles as possible (including images, banners and graphics.) However once you have some excellent copy to put on the front pages of your site your job does not stop there. You should make sure your web design is going to nicely support that text as well.

First of all make sure that there is no Flash, image map bytes, java script or any other kind of multimedia on that page. The search engine spiders will read that as blank space. Second of all make sure that you include text for your image ALT tags as well as for all of your anchor tags.

Thirdly, you need to consider how your HTML code will be prioritized and arranged on the page. It is also absolutely essential that your HTML code is clean as well. It does not matter if the web page looks right. It is what is beneath it that matters most to the search engine spiders (the sloppy HTML scraps and ends of mistakes that you don’t see.) If this is sloppy enough your website could end up being ignored or repressed for a long time before it actually becomes part of any page ranking.

You should also never underestimate the impact of your site’s functionality and architecture on the search engines. An assessment of this is definitely known to be a part of many of the algorithms that govern page rank popularity on the major search engines like Google. If a search engine does not think your site is well put together it can simply ignore it. This means that nobody will ever see the clever search engine copy that you were trying to get the site’s search engine optimized architecture to support in the first place. That, of course, would be a waste of time.
