Let me share with you a secret that most marketing experts and consultants don’t want you to know (many of them don’t even understand this secret themselves.)
How a website has written its links is an excellent way to judge its quality. Good websites tend to have a rich and intuitive link structure. Good web writers think clearly about how each piece of content links up with the rest of the content on the website.

Tommy Sherman daily monitors a helpdesk-provisioning queue for a large company. The current provisioning/user management system was written with homegrown software. It has not had a major update for several years. Each day, he is getting more and more frustrated. No matter how hard he tries, he cannot keep up with the increasing workload. New employees are screaming for their system ids and have no way of checking their id creation status. Existing employees are demanding timely updates to their ids when they transfer across business units. Ex-employees exist in the system months after departure. His frustrated manager will be meeting with him this afternoon to talk about his “unresponsiveness.”
So, you’ve finally decided to take that giant leap of faith and start your very own home based internet business. You’ve decided that it’s finally time to step up to the plate and claim your share of all those internet riches you keep hearing about. Only problem is, now that you’ve finally made your decision, it seems like a pretty daunting task deciding what to do next. Using the term “information overload” to describe the problem seems like a huge understatement.
There are many techniques people use for tracking the performance of their PPC campaigns. Some are incredibly advanced and intense and others are plain and simple. One little trick I like to use is not only simple to put in place, but can provide very powerful results.
Whether you’re a designer or a marketer, understanding user behavior should be a top priority. That was what compelled me to write my article exploring some recent studies on search engine user behavior patterns. And, with questions now flowing through my mind, I picked up the phone and called Gord Hotchkiss, President and CEO of Enquiro, one of the companies that have been studying search behavior.
Top businesses that continually lead their industry clearly understand a simple fact:
If you want to create web pages optimized for a search engine, one of your first tasks will be finding relevant keywords around which the page should be built. The more specific you can be in selecting relevant keywords the better chance of getting targeted traffic to your web page.
Starting out in any type of online marketing or Internet business can be confusing and overwhelming. There are so many different aspects of a start-up: domain name registration and purchase, Web site host purchasing, and of course, the “building” of the Web site itself. This leaves many consumers looking for an easier way to purchase everything in one place, both to save money and to save time.
The online adult industry lures many online with promises of easy riches. During the crash one ecommerce pundit pointed to adult sites as sites that could survive. While we know that wasn’t true, it’s true that the adult industry grew through the down turn and remains to day a major technology driver (so much so that USAToday wrote an article on adult tech recently).
Recently DarkBlue.com initiated a competition to see who could rank #1 for the keyword nigritude ultramarine. The idea of the competition is to see what works and what does not work in search engine optimization of websites. To aid in creating useful findings, the competition has two winners. The first winner will be announced in early June and the second winner will be announced in July. The idea is to see who can get to the #1 position in a short amount of time as well as to see who can optimize the best for the long term.
One of the best methods of learning how to succeed in your Internet business is to first find a successful site to model your business on.
You will spend more time, effort, money, and headaches in the beginning of starting a home business than with practically anything else in your life. However, when it all comes together, the hard times will seem like a distant memory because it will all have been worth it.
Just over a year ago, Google.com began to provide access to its web search API to programmers and developers. This provided them with a way to utilize the optimum resources of Google’s database of listings. At first, there were few practical applications that would help the average webmaster.
Failure, just like success, is measured differently by each and every one of us. What one man treats as success another may view as failure. For the purposes of this article a website that fails is one that fails to attract and convert enough targeted visitors into paying customers. Yeah – positive feedback from your website visitors is great but let’s face it – we’re all in this ultimately to make more money.
I was all set to write an article predicting the future of search engines, when Yahoo dropped Google and replaced it with its own engine. Now that’s big news. In less than twenty-four hours, Google went from about 79% of the market share to about 51%, almost overnight. And what a welcome relief it is too! Being #1 in Google was great, but when you had the misfortune of dropping even a couple of positions you really felt it. Now there will be more stability; if you drop in Google today, your hits from Yahoo will remain consistent.
File and mail security is easy to achieve with the right tools. PGP has proven itself the leader, and GnuPG is the tool of choice in the Linux world.
I’ve been working with Google’s Adsense program for a while now. If you’re not already in the program, why not take a look at it now at https://www.google.com/adsense. I really like Adsense. It makes me money and it’s easy to work with. Just some simple copy & paste into your webpage and you’re done. Right?
A website is now a necessary proof of credibility for any company. It must be visible so that potential customers can find it on the Internet. When they find it, it should easily provide the information they need to confirm the company as a potential supplier.
Part of the overall process of submitting one’s website to the search engines is getting your site listed in the top directories. Directories are different from standard search engines in that a search engine will query a database of indexed websites before it produces results and a directory is a database of websites that have been arranged by subject. Directories do indeed have search functions but the websites are still listed in specific categories of which one may search by drilling through the various subjects the directory offers.
The most important idea behind the On Demand Network and central to its design strategy is a concept known as The Singularity, the evolution of the Internet and other networks combined with XML Web services and other technologies to enable one global computing environment.
One of the fastest ways to attract more subscribers for your mailing list is to collect names by giving away ecourses.
When I first started up in the affiliate marketing business several months ago I made a classic newbie mistake. And because of this mistake I ended up turning what could have been a decent start into a big disappointment.
“I don’t have a product. I don’t even have a product IDEA!” This is one of the most common concerns I hear from people interested in starting a business on the Internet. It’s obvious that you need to sell either a product or a service in order to make money.
Bridging the Chasm from Lead to Loyal Customer : A Step by Step Guide for Developing Awareness, Building Credibility and Acquiri
Have you ever watched a documentary about climbing Mount Everest? If so, you will undoubtedly remember one specific segment of the journey where the climbers cross a chasm, one carefully placed step after another, using aluminum ladders strung end to end. For me, just the thought of it is enough to cause an anxiety attack!
The Windows XP Professional operating system allows for both compression and encryption natively within the operating system by setting given attributes on the files and folders. Both of these functions are mutually exclusive of each other and only one or the other can be enacted on a particular file or directory at any given time.
“Just who’s Mr. Q?” I bet you’ve asked this question now.
With the ever-rising tide of email most business users are experiencing, the challenge to gain space in prospective customers’ in-boxes and to sustain their loyal readership over time is growing, too. Now that my free weekly email newsletter, The Marketing Minute (http://www.yudkin.com/marksynd.htm), is celebrating its 300th issue, I’d like to offer these guidelines for creating a newsletter that can outshine the competition.
This tutorial shows you how to create a basic website with nothing on the stage. This will involve dynamically loading jpegs and creating movieclips via actionscript. Some of the material covered will be advanced but I will go through it step by step.
The annual strategic planning review frequently amounts to little more than a stage on which senior executives and presidents of business units present warmed-over updates of last year’s presentations, take few risks in broaching new ideas, and strive above all to avoid confrontation. Rather than preparing the company to deal with the strategic uncertainties ahead or serving as the focal point for creative thinking about a company’s vision and direction, the planning process, “is like some primitive tribal ritual,” as one executive was quoted saying in a magazine article. “There is a lot of dancing, waving of feathers, and beating of drums. No one is exactly sure why we do it, but there is an almost mystical hope that something good will come out of it,” the executive added.
I’m confused in general about some SEO stuff. I was beginning to think I understood and then someone threw a wrench into my thoughts.

One of the biggest problems in any type of sale is the close. With one-on-one salesmen, getting them to ask for the sale is one of the hardest things to teach. In online selling, where words are the salesman, many times you see the same problem – the writer never asks for the order or business! Do you make that mistake in your marketing?
If you operate several websites, each with its own domain name, signing up of separate hosting accounts can be an expensive proposition. Even if your hosting company offers the add-on domain feature (which will allow you to add different domains to the same hosting account) you will be charged a monthly fee for each domain you add, sometimes costing almost the same as your full hosting fee. The solution is to open a reseller account.
I am a non-techie book coach who has been in business for 20 years, but only Online for the past 2 1/2 years. I had only sold books and special reports for three months when I contributed to this book. Yet, in just three months I manifested amazing online profits. My second website’s first month’s sales were only $75 but the third month my sales had already grown 10 times and are still growing.–now consistently $3000.
Internet has opened a new era of business opportunities. Each day, thousands of new consumers are joining the Internet. More and more companies are adopting Internet as their primary sales and distribution channel. According to Forrester Research The survey of 130 U.S. companies indicates consumers spent $76 billion shopping on-line in 2002. This represents a 48 percent increase over 2001, and projections for 2003 come close to $100 billion, representing 4.5 percent of total retail sales.
Not all books come out whole, all at once. In fact, most books ease out little by little. They have strange and wondrous beginnings. Some come from speeches, some come from articles or short stories. The saying goes if you write a short story or article every day, at the end of a year you’ll have a book–a big book at that! But then, why think so big?

A great way to get the word out about your business in a hurry is something so simple and effective yet few marketers online take advantage of it.
One of the ways to boost traffic to your Web site is by purchasing keywords from one of the pay-per-click search engines or directories.
You’re probably in business to make as many sales as practical and build a better life for yourself and loved ones. In order to make those sales you need to reach as many targeted prospects as possible with your message. Yet, your message must get through to your prospects one… at …. a ….. time. It’s individuals that read your message, think about it, and react to it. They react to your message once they connect with you and feel an appropriate emotion based upon the content of your messages. So the real key to your on-line success is connecting with your prospects one-at-a-time or one-to-one.

Some of us aren’t lucky enough to have brand new computer systems that are loaded with memory and bells and whistles. Plus, many software programs are RAM memory guzzlers, and they don’t “release” that memory when the program is closed. That means that your system is unable to recover that memory and use it with other programs.
In only one day, I had over 400 new visitors clamoring their way into my website. I didn’t use spam, it wasn’t through ezine advertising, and it didn’t cost me anything — not one thin dime.
Today, it is an understatement to say that we are constantly bombarded with information of nuclear proportions. The roles of both the consumer and the entrepreneur have become so immensely challenging that choosing a business from which to buy — let alone being and remaining in business — has become a dizzying process. Therefore, how does one survive let alone thrive in today’s explosive hypercompetitive, overcommunicated marketplace?
A great benefit of ecommerce, when compared to the traditional brick-and-mortar world, is the ability for an online marketer to track, assess and correct marketing endeavors — almost at the click of a mouse. A specific product, service of offer is hot (or not) right now? A particular marketing effort is doing (or not doing) so well? A specific sales letter, text or even graphic on your website is causing sales to go way up (or way down)? Or one webpage is more popular than the others?
Someone once asked in the Marketing Challenge Private Site’s discussion forums, “What’s the number one reason a business should have a web presence?” This is a fascinating question because, very often, many businesses (particularly with those I’ve consulted in my practice) have no clue as to why they are online. Yes, it is a new medium that’s affordable, more effective and wrought with opportunity — especially for smaller businesses.
They say that a picture is worth 1000 words, and in the world of the Internet, where your web host charges you for the amount of data transferred from the server to your customers, that is very literally true. Some site hosts promise unlimited data transfer (at least in theory), but most providers charge huge fees if you exceed some predetermined limit. When pictures take 20k-bites and more, getting a visually interesting site without the a huge data transfer cost requires some planning and some really neat tricks.
Since I started marketing online I’ve offered everything from air freshners to zip programs. I started out with no clue whatsoever. I went to all the free classifieds and FFA sites I could find. If it was available and in my budget I tried it all. Now, eight years later and a better idea of what works for me, I use Ezine ads to get my service or products in the public’s digital eye.
Spend time planning your Web site. Before you design a page or write a word, get a visual, and mental picture of your preferred audience. Your visitors will spend up to 10 seconds on your home page, so plan accordingly. Draw your specific audience’s attention with compelling headings that include benefits that will solve their problems.
You wanted to work from home so you could have more time for the rest of your life other than work, right? I’m sure that is one of everyone’s goals.
