What Are PLR Articles And Why Should I Use Them?

PLR has been a big buzzword in the online community over the past 6 months or so. As webmasters we are always looking for more good content to add to our sites. Unfortunately there isn’t always the time to write articles on all the topics we would like to cover, especially if we are managing multiple websites.

One option to get great content is to have it written for you by a ghostwriter. There are quite a few good ghostwriters out there and if you take a little time to weed out the good from the bad, you can find someone that will write you high quality content for about $8-12 per article. Considering how much extra traffic and revenue a well-written article can bring you, that’s no bad investment. At the same time, if you need lots of fresh content, it can quickly add up to a hefty price tag.

What’s the alternative? PLR articles. PLR stands for Private Label Rights. Some one has a few articles written on a particular topic and then sells a few other people the right to use the article as their own, change the content as they see fit and without having to add a resource box with a link back to the original owner of the article.

As mentioned above, the article is only sold to a limited number of people (how many will of course vary from one PLR site to the next), which means that you won’t find thousands of copies of the same article all over the web. Because the articles are sold to several people, the cost per article is much lower. How low will in part depend on how many other members will receive the article in addition to you. You will often end up paying less than a dollar or even just a few cents per article.

PLR articles are the perfect balance for a Webmaster on a budget. You get plenty of content for your site, without having to spend a fortune.

Dedication In Home Business

Home business can be a life saver. For so many people it seems to be the answer to a prayer. They are able to stay home with their kids. They are perhaps making more money than they dreamed possible. They are dedicated individuals living their dreams.

But for others it is a nightmare. They jumped into the first home business idea they came to thinking it would be easy. They quit their jobs and now they regret the decision, maybe they have dedication but didn t understand what they were getting into.

It doesn t have to be that way. Home business can be a great opportunity it you know what to expect and you have the determination, drive, and dedication to make it work. The best way to start a home business is to start working with something you are passionate about.

Many people fail because after the initial newness of the situation wears off they are stuck with an idea or product that they can t get excited about. Then they end up putting off what needs to be done until everything collapses and fails. If you start something you can get excited about, you are far more likely to put in more effort to make the business a success.

Another pitfall people fall into is thinking that it will be easy. A home business is like any other business. It takes work. It takes dedication. You wouldn t expect to build an offline business like a gas station or a fast food restaurant and sit back and watch it run on autopilot paying off all your investment and making you money hand over fist, and just so with an online business. Successful online businesses work had to be successful and stay successful.

If you are a dedicated individual who can find an opportunity that you are passionate about you just may be the individual who will be working form home making all their dreams come true.

Search Engines And Directories - Understanding The Difference

One thing that is so basic that it often still needs to clarified is the concept that a search engine and a search directory (article directory) are not the same thing. The traditional search engines add Web site pages to their databases automatically and then rank them in popularity in their search engine rankings based on user submissions. However, these search engines also periodically send their automatic robots or "spiders" out to "crawl" for new and updated information on websites that can also be indexed and added to the search engine rankings. Complex algorithms (that are comparable to the mysterious complex FICO Scores that are used to calculate your credit rating) calculate your web page’s popularity on a number of different factor. The most famous example of a pure search engine like this is Google

Directories also qualify as a search site but they are not the same as a search engine. To get listed on a directory, you must actually submit your front page URL on the directory's submission form. Also instead of being evaluated by an algorithm, these pages are directly assessed by a human being. This means that your site is ranked according to the information that you submitted on your application. This is very different from a typical search engine that assesses your web ranking according to what is actually on the home page of your web site. The Open Directory, Yahoo and LookSmart are the main Internet directories that are managed in this way.

To make things even more difficult the search sites and the search engines work in cahoots together to boost each other’s rankings. Almost all of the major search engines also work in tandem with a directory which is why, for instance, a listing in DMOZ almost automatically guarantees you a place on Google.

Protecting Your Identity On Social Networking Websites

Social networking websites are a great way to stay in touch with friends and family, but they can also pose a serious identity theft risk. Keep reading for great tips on how to enjoy social networking websites, while still protecting yourself from online identity theft.

Because many social networking sites are viewable by anyone as a default, any information you enter into your profile could be easily searched and available to the world. Most people give little thought to posting their birthday, where they were born, and full name, but sometimes even this small amount of information can be all a professional identity thief needs to access your identity.

One of the simplest ways to increase security is to set your profile page to private. Most social networking websites, like MySpace or Facebook, will allow you to control who can and can't see your profile. By only allowing your personal friends access to your information, you're significantly reducing the risk.

Another easy way to protect your identity is simply to not include private information in your online profile. Don't post your address and phone number where the world can see it. Consider this, if your address or city is posted and you write a post on your profile that reads “will write soon, am off to Denver for 10 days,” not only will a potential identity thief have your address, but also the knowledge that your mailbox will be unsupervised for the next 10 days. So not safe.

Finally, before posting anything online, really consider whether or not its necessary. Ask yourself if you'd write that information on a bathroom wall or distribute it on a flyer. If the answer is no, then perhaps you shouldn't be posting it at all. Remember, social networking can be fun, but make sure you're the one in control.

Paid Online Survey Tips - How To Avoid Getting Scammed By Paid Online Survey Programs

I decided to write this review of the paid online survey industry after having a chance to see the good, the bad and the ugly aspects of it first hand. Is it true that you can make a ton of money from home, simply filling out surveys? What about the scam sites? How do you know which ones are legit and which ones you should avoid like the plague? In this brief review I will answer these questions and others you may have, all with the goal of helping to make you the most informed consumer possible.

If you've heard of paid online survey sites, I'm sure you've heard that you should be leery of them. Since the industry started picking up speed several years ago, the internet has be inundated with tons of scam sites that claim to give you access to awesome lists of paid surveys you can take to make a lot of money. Usually, they take your money and run without giving you much in return. Most of these survey lists are so old and outdated, they have long reached capacity and are no longer worth anything. On the other hand, there seem to be a lot of success stories, as well.

In my research, I have found that most of the people who have made significant amounts of money from filling out paid online survey after paid online survey all have one thing in common: they did their research and went with a program that was legit. Failure to choose carefully can result in hours of wasted time and frustration.

So, if you are serious about trying your hand at this neat industry I would encourage you to get started with a reputable program and really dedicate yourself to working it. I've seen many who were able to go full-time and quit their jobs after a short time so it's certainly possible if you set your mind to it and stay focused.

Look Like A Professional Carpet Cleaner

If you are in the carpet cleaning business you know that it is important to separate yourself from the competition. One way to do that is to be professional. Read this article and learn some things you can do to present yourself and your company as professional.

The number one thing you can do to appear professional is to wear a nice uniform. This is something that a lot of carpet cleaners do not do. Do not simply show up at a house wearing an old t-shirt and jeans. Instead why not get some polo's embroidered with your company name and a nice pair of khakis. Your customers will look at you in a whole new light. If you are the type of person that sweats a lot be sure to also wear a clean undershirt and bring an extra polo to change into half way through the day. Image is everything in this business.

Another way to set yourself apart from the competition is to have a professional invoice. Do not simply buy the generic invoices available at most office stores. You will find that it is surprisingly affordable to have some invoices custom printed with your company information. It might even be cheaper than the generic invoices if you buy in bulk.

The last thing I will discuss is manners. You should always treat your customer and their home with respect. Always say maam and sir even if you are older than your customer. If you need to park in the driveway or enter a room they do not expect you to be in ask first. Also be aware of how you look while in the home. Act as if you are being filmed all of the time, who know you might be.

These are three easy things that any company can do if they take their company seriously. Put these tips into effect and I assure you that you and your customers will feel better about your company.

Domain Money Maker Review - Good Or Bad?

After looking into what the software has to offer, I decided to write this Domain Money Maker review. With the goal of finding out if it is a genuinely viable way to make money, I wrote this brief review to help you decide if Domain Money Maker is a product that is right for you.

People have made a ridiculous amount of money off of domains. With all of the potential revenue to be made, why not put your domains to work earning cash for you? Domain Money Maker allows you to quickly and easily put up a website for your domain, while using dynamic RSS feeds to update your site constantly based on your keywords. Setting up the script is simpler than you ever imagined.

The script has nine professionally designed templates there for you to choose from, and modifications are easy to modify. This gives your script a personal feel unique to your site. Installation of Domain Money Maker takes just seconds, and has been given tons of great reviews by satisfied customers. Consistently, Domain Money Maker has been rated five out of five stars.

Domain Money Maker gives you everything you need to start making money, including a massive bonus package that features a ton of extra software you can resell. In fact, you get more than 100 scripts and programs to use on unlimited domains! Most php software limits your use to one site and charges hundreds of dollars. As you know, any good domainer has hundreds of sites. Why not have software you can use on all of them?

I can’t sing the praises of Domain Money Maker loudly enough. Literally, the software package has way more than you’ll ever need at a price that is so affordable you’d be crazy not to try it. I highly recommend Domain Money Maker to any domainer looking to maximize the profitability of the sites they own.

What To Know Before Hiring An SEO Pro

An article about what you need to check out about an SEO professional or company before you make the decision to hire them to optimize your website.

There are a lot of SEO experts on the web and before you hire an SEO professional or company to optimize your website for you there are some things you need to consider. This is because there are a lot of companies have expanded the definition of SEO to include things that you don’t need (but they will sell them to you anyway.)

Before hiring a professional or a company to do your SEO for you it is a good idea to get a list of their previous clients and also find out how big this company is. Is it just a guy in a basement or is it a big agency. Sometimes the guy in the basement is actually better and cheaper – the key thing is to get references and do a little research on the company’s background. A reputable SEO service will give you a list of clients that you can call.

Another thing to ask them is if they practice black hat SEO. Almost every company will say no so they can get your business but basically make sure that they are not using cloaking, portal pages or redirects to get you to number one in the search engine page rankings.

You should also carefully examine the cost of the service. The average going price for SEO services is about $10,000 even for a very small site. If you find a cheaper rate it may or may not be a reputable company.

As this is a newer and shifting business to business service on the Internet in some ways make sure you get at least three quotes from three different companies before you make a decision about who to go with. This will give you a good idea of your options and help you make a good decision.

Article Submission: Is It Worth It?

There are numerous websites out there on the World Wide Web boasting the most effective services for article submission out there. Many of them boast that they will submit your article to more than one or two hundred services for a mere five to ten dollars--the details depend on the article submission site and service, of course. Does it sound to good to be true to you? Well, in the case of article submission, it may or may not be true.

When you submit your articles, you are submitting them for possible inclusion in someone’s article directory. Many people do spend hours, literally going from site to site and submitting their articles for possible inclusion in an article directory. How does this benefit you?

Article submission benefit’s the writer or the website owner (many times the same person) in many ways. Obviously, having as many links back to you as possible is always to your advantage, especially for advertising and other sponsor reasons. If you have a web site that provides a certain product or service, having as many links back to you as you can possibly get out there is important.

It can be difficult and a long winded task to manually search for article directories that are accepting articles and then go through the changes of submitting them to the various directories. This is a step by step process, and it is a rather daunting task to do it for more than one article, especially several articles a week maybe even written by several article writers.

Submitting articles for submission is one of the ways for you to save the time and energy associated with submitting articles to article directories. Your time is better spent elsewhere, so if it is an affordable option for you, it is a good thing to consider and increases the likelihood of your articles being accepted.

Seo - Sophisticated Types Of Spamdexing

Spamdexing is not just for amateurs. It is an entire business that can incorporate all kinds of less than ethical techniques. The search engines frown on most of these techniques but the temporary boost in your ratings before you are caught is apparently worth the profits that you make.

Mirror websites are simply sites that all have the same content but use a different URL. This is a technique that is being used less as the search engines are getting better at penalizing this type of duplication.

Another clever black hat SEO trick is URL redirection. No matter what you click on the user is taken to a site that they did not wish to go for. This can backfire as often all this does is make people really angry, unless what you have to offer them is truly captivating.

Yet another popular technique for fooling the search engines is called cloaking. Cloaking refers to any of several methods that are use to offer up a different page then will be seen by humans to the search-engine spiders. Yet another tricky technique is which is a form of code swapping. Once a page has reached a high ranking in Google the code in the URL is then changed so that the surfer is taken to a totally different page.

Other forms of spamdexing are Google bombing and Google washing. Google bombing is the practice of deliberately modifying HTML pages to increase the chance of their being placed close to the beginning of search engine results, or to influence the category to which the page is assigned in a misleading or dishonest manner. Googlewashing is used to change a person’s perception of a term. SEO experts sometimes take advantage of Google bombs and washes by linking to them so that ratings can be improved.

Seo - Consistency Is Good Seo

Human beings are creatures of habit and the more things remain the same the more we trust them. Part of convincing your customers to trust you is about making your blog look the same every day. The type size and font should be the same, links should be highlighted the same way and your images should never change. You can always change the content but you must be reliable in terms of appearance.

Consistency and sloppiness are at opposite ends of the spectrum. People would not read a newspaper that had horoscopes in the sports section and obituaries in the cartoon section. Each time your visitors come to your site, they should know what to expect and where to find things. Make sure to fulfill this expectation by making sure your site is well organized and that all the links work. This means being very dutiful about your site maintenance.

It might be valuable for you to write yourself up a little style guide that defines how you will define the little things and keep them consistent throughout the entire site. These are the rules that you will always stick to each time you make a new blog entry. For instance, will you be spelling website as website or web site. How will you treat your headlines? Will they be in all caps, bolded or in another color? If you use bullet points in blog entry will they be asterisks or dots? These might seem like small matters but keeping all of this stuff in mind can help your site have a more professional, cohesive look in the end.

Another point of consistency is in the layout of the blogs. Each entry should looks similar. The headers and fonts should all be the same size in every single entry. If you insert an image it should always be in the same place on a page.

Seo - Five Big Seo Don'ts

When search engine optimizing your web pages there are five basic things you should avoid doing or all of your hard work trying to achieve rankings will go to waste.

First of all avoid using cloaking mechanisms. This is automated software that doesn’t work unless it knows the IP address of a search engine spider. Cloaking is a form of SEO deception that serves a unique, optimized page to the search engines, while presenting a completely different page to surfers. Most major search engines will penalize or ban you altogether if you use this tempting black hat SEO technique that often backfires.

Also you should avoid using professionals that guarantee you a number one position or first page rankings. There is no such thing as this guarantee. To be safe always ask what techniques your would-be SEO firm uses to achieve a good positioning for your site.

Don’t use software that automatically submits your sites on a weekly or monthly basis, since it might penalize you in the long run. You can be considered a spammer so you if you submit URLS too often so you don’t really need to submit more than once.

Don’t entrust your site to people that will submit it to “thousands of engines.” There isn’t that many search engines in the first place. You will be submitted to link farms.

Keep Flash technology out of your site. As far as your rankings in the search engines go, the best way to develop a site is in using standard technology, such as HTML. Text written in the HTML format is proven technology that all search engines have long recognized and approved, since the beginning of the Internet. Using the right technology will always help your site attain a good position in the search engine ranking pages.

Seo - Are Your Banner Ads Working For You?

Banner ads are going out of style as a pay-per-click way of garnering income. However does this mean that you should discard your banner ads and trade them in for another type of SEO.

There are several ways that tell whether or not your banner ad is worth keeping.

You need to somehow keep track of your page Impressions. This term is the number of times a particular web page has been requested from the server. Advertisers are interested in knowing how many page views they are being offered before they do a banner exchange with you. If you don’t have a high rate of page impressions then the banner ad is not doing much for you.

Another thing to do is examine your Click-through rate (CTR). This describes the ratio of page views to clicks. It tells you in the form of a percentage the total number of web visitors who actually clicked on the banner ad. The typical click-through-rate of payment is a measly 1 percent and if you are not even making that then the program is not working for you.

If you are thinking of starting a banner ad click through or pay per click type ad campaign you should make sure that the banner relates to your web content. Otherwise you could confuse both search engine spiders and people looking for you.

It is also a good idea to put banner ads at the top of the page rather than further down. Yet another tip is to link the banner ad to the page on your web page that features the same as it helps raise your rankings in the search engine. The hitch with this and also the reason why trading banners may not be worth your time is that many banner exchanges won't do the trade with you unless you can guarantee that you will place the banner on your home page!

What’s Hot In Google Labs – Google Trends

Google Trends is definitely one feature that the statistic loving Internet marketer is going to love.

While Google Trends is currently still in testing mode, it looks as though Google Trends is basically very close to completion. Of course, everything that Google releases is generally in beta for a long time.

Providing a search term receives or has received enough searches in the past, visitors can enter this term into the Google Trends page and be presented with a graphical representation of the number of searches that have been conducted over the past 24 months or so.

While this gives some very useful information on the patterns of particular terms, it unfortunately doesn’t provide any actual figures. Whether this will change when Google Trends goes live or not remains to be seen. In the meantime, though, there is some relatively useful information to be found.

Pick a topic relevant to your own site and look at the search trends. If you find that the topic you searched for is depleting in searches then look for alternatives. Of course, be careful to use another tool to ensure that changing is the sensible thing to do.

You can also compare search terms to see which ones are more popular.

You can view how the time of year affect the search volume that certain keywords have.

Alternatively, if you’re just interested in discovering the rise or fall in popularity of specific terms then go to and give it a try.

Whether this will become one of Google’s biggest successes remains to be seen. This is unlikely because the information is mostly used by webmasters and there are many tools out there already that provide more comprehensive information. The good point about this information is that it is probably the most accurate there is.

Seo - How To Avoid Being Blacklisted By Yahoo

A listing in Yahoo can boost your site’s page rankings exponentially but unfortunately it is one of the most finicky and difficult sites to get into. For one thing they don’t allow you to piggyback by using well-known keywords or brand names. It is all original, you and manually arranged.

First of all make sure your site is done completely before you submit. Your site will be blacklisted before it is listed if it is not 100% up and running. That "under construction." Page turns Yahoo right off. A site with a clean basic design and lots of good content (is more likely to get inside the Yahoo club than a site full of bells and whistles.

Another caveat: Yahoo requires that the site list the physical address of the business somewhere on the site. This address must be a physical one, they do not accept post office box type addresses. This is one way they keep scam artists out of their search engines. The idea is that only people who are planning to rip off others have hotmail addresses and post office boxes.

Whatever you do, do NOT bombard Yahoo with submissions. If you apply more than once a month, they'll ignore you and your children and your children's children. Another good way to get snubbed by Yahoo is to submit a site to a regional index that has nothing to do with that region, or isn't really a regionally limited site. This is a form of misinformation that is on par with fraud for them.

Whatever you do don't try to sneak multiple listing into Yahoo. By this I mean, don't try to make a free application into a paid category. If they catch you, Yahoo will ban you for life! Follow Yahoo's instructions or else! If you try to sneak around their rules they will get you.

Research An Internet Business Before Starting

There are ways to make money other than flipping houses or investing in risky stocks. You always have the option of starting an internet business, as long as you have a product or service to offer. If you have no product or service, you could always take advantage of a franchise.

You must decide what type of business you want to get involved in before you join an internet business. You can sell either your own product or you can also sell someone else's product. This is also true for any services that you may want to resell in order to turn a profit.

There is also the possibility of selling both services and products. While it can be successful to choose one product or service and focus on promoting it, it can also be a wise decision to take advantage of offering solutions for different customer needs.

The largest expense you will incur in starting any business is in advertising. Although free forms of advertising do exist, they are far less effective than the paid methods. If you develop a good marketing plan to reach your target audience, you will be better able to focus your advertising efforts.

Your focus should also be on sustaining growth. If you are selling products, you should plan on selling products that are disposable and need to be replaced. This creates repeat customers who will continue to purchase your product over and over.

If your business can sell disposable products, you do not need to continually focus on attracting new customers. Although it is always recommended to attract some new customers, it is not necessary to continue to do this if you are selling disposable products or services. Instead, you can focus your time on building a relationship with your existing customers and assuring that you provide the best customer service.

Looking For An Inexpensive Way To Advertise Your Home Business?

There are many advantages to having your own home business. You are in control of your work schedule and you can work the hours that you choose to work. The dress code is also pretty lax and you could work in your pajamas. You will be able to spend more time with your family and children. You can also take a vacation whenever you feel as though you want one. It's a great way to make a living online, but the key to building a successful online business is generating customers.

In order to attract customers to your business, you must actively advertise. You will have to be able to entice customers with your product or service and you will need to be able to drive traffic to your website in order to get your website seen. Traffic is essential regardless of the type of business that you are promoting.

The problem with website promotion is that it costs money. Most people that are just starting their own home businesses do not have much money to spend on advertising. It is important, however, to allocate some money to your advertising budget.

There are ways for you to cheaply attract customers to your business. The key is to make sure that you are advertising in the correct location. If your home business is a local home business, then your advertising dollars are best spent on printed material. Do not spend money on advertising online if your target customers are in the general area in which you live.

On the other hand, if you are running an online home business, you will want to focus your promotional efforts on internet advertising. You can write an article and post it to article directories for free. You can also post your link on free blogs. With time and effort, you will be able to spread the word about your home business.

Getting That Bargain Online

We all have browsed the Internet, at one time or another looking for a bargain but only a small percentage of us have proceeded to buy. Why is this?

When first considering buying online we are often hesitant and unsure on a number of things such as the security, honesty and trustworthiness of online vendors. Buying from a single vendor has its risks but how can we minimize the risks?

We could buy from an online shopping mall but these still have their risks as most, if not all shops, in a shopping mall, are often owned by a single owner. And even if there were several different, independent vendors, how could we be sure their product was ok? After all, the mall owner has vested interest in keeping his sellers happy. There needs to be some sort of independent feedback regarding the quality of the seller.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could find an environment where there was a diversity of sellers and we could be sure these vendors we ok, because we there was independent feedback by their customers.

Responsibly run online auction sites meet these requirements and especially the smaller sites as owners, more, carefully monitor both sellers and buyers. If you are considering buying from a smaller auction site make sure you write to the seller first and ask a question, any question. The question isn’t so important but the seller’s response gives you a chance to evaluate them and decide if you can trust that particular seller.

Using a smaller Auction site often gives you added benefits such as the ability to actually correspond with the owners and become involved in the process. There are often bonuses for joining and the rates for selling will often be low or zero. This means the sellers can sell to you for cheaper and everyone wins.
