URL Marketing

 

 Creative marketing is all the rage these days but do these really work or are they just another way to get your money…

Developing an SEO strategy that works…

Tracking data on websites, can be easy and hard at the same time, over the last few months we have been tracking what might be considered to some at least to be an un-natural event in google analytics, at least we have observed data that seems to be only counting original IP address hits, and not counting return hits from the same IP address. This is concerning since for many webmasters, repeat business is something that everyone should strive to get in a good web presence.

Developing traffic in these days can be a difficult experience, however, divergent IP addresses can help you in many ways that you may not have previously considered. Did you know that IP addresses are a very powerful tool in marketing. You can you use unique IP addresses to raise the value of your website?

What is it and how can it help you grow your website traffic stats. Unique, IP addresses, yes, that is what URL marketing is all about, because having a unique IP address makes a difference. Learn. How operating your own website can be a challenge and how marketing is the solution and the answer to the success of your website.


The key to getting more traffic is getting traffic?

Which gives you the catch 22, how can you get more traffic if you need traffic first in order to get more traffic. So how can you have your cake and eat it too, well as the old saying goes you can’t have your cake and eat it too, right, well perhaps not, but you can have your traffic and get more of it too. Unique traffic counts for more than you know, not just because each hit is counted as a separate hit but because the more unique hits you get the better you look to larger websites. Does that make sense?

The more unique traffic you have the better results you will get, the more unique traffic you get the more larger search engines, will index and give your website more links. See how this can work in your favor?

 

 


Analyst for the Small Business


 The trouble with small business is that sometimes its hard to figure out what is going on in life, more so when you find that your time is limited by the number of hours in a day.

Could you think your way out of a problem if you did not know nor had you any experience with the problem?

They used to call this consulting, but in our experience most small business owners do not listen to advice at all. Which is why they really need advice, more so when you have a rough and tumble economy like we have now.

Small business owners may not think they need a business analyst.

One of the most important things you can do for your small business is to create and generate a plan that works time after time. Small businesses are sometimes caught up in trying to survive and overlook a key element in their success.

The business analyst can actually come in and determine what the small business owner can do to expand his or her business. The small business owner can benefit just as much from a business analyst as a large corporation. There may be times when the business analyst sees the big picture when the small business owner can only see the bottom line.

The new small business may not feel the added expense of a business analyst is worth justifying. In fact this is just the case. The small business can benefit from the business analyst in many ways. The business analyst may be able to offer an unforeseen income generating avenue.

Advertising techniques the small business is using may be proving fruitless. The business analyst may be able to implement Bluetooth advertising. The small business could target specific clients instead of a general population with his or her advertising dollar.

The business analyst may be able to suggest point of sale income not thought of by the small business owner. Other elements the business analyst could suggest would be repackaging in different sizes, where appropriate. Offering complimenting sales items may have not occurred to the small business owner.

The business analyst is there to show a different perspective. The business analyst will be able to assess the small business and determine what business decisions should be made. He or she can instruct the small business owner of new programs available. The business analyst will be able to offer advice as to new technology the small business owner is not taking advantage of.

The small business is able to be aided in several ways by the business analyst. The business analyst is a visionary. He or she can show the small business how to implement innovative business techniques. These techniques may have never been before thought of by the small business owner.

The business analyst can view the broad scope of things to determine a need by the customer. The small business owner may have no idea these areas of opportunity exist. It is up to the business analyst to show the small business what will work and what will not work for the business. Building profits and customer relations are the two key components that make up what the small business is focused upon.

A good business analyst will be able to integrate these key elements into a plan of action for the small business. The business analyst can act as the liaison between the small business and the customer to determine if the needs of the customer are being met. A report can then be generated to determine how the small business can use this information.

The small business and it’s customers can benefit from the knowledge a business analyst brings to the table. The added expense of a business analyst can significantly raise the profits of a small business. It is worth researching whether a business analyst will be able to use his or her skills when it comes to a small business.

 

 


WordPress Blog Comment Spam

 

 Do comments that are off topic do any good at all?

Ok this is a tough topic, because for the most part, Comment spam is not only offensive, but abusive, but what if it could be made to be productive?

Ok stay with me for a moment, while I take you through the comment spamming process.

The idea is to advertise a URL, by commenting on a comment, I know sounds sort of scary, but there are software products that people use from a desktop or even from a website, so what is happening is that no one is really reading your blog post, and that is problematic, you want people to read it, but what if some people read the blog post because it has comments?

 

What then? If you stop all comment spam, then that reduces the number of hits your website gets, right?

Technically, but what if you could make use of that automatic software? Is there a benefit to be had from these automatic software posters? Perhaps, there is and in more ways than one. Here is an excerpt from an article about comment spam, “One of the most serious problems with any blogging system, including WordPress, is that the comments area is wide open to that scourge of the Internet, spammers. In this case, it’s comment spam.

 

Comment spam is created by people seeking to boost their Google rankings by having lots of links pointing to their own websites. This causes a wide variety of problems:” Now, here is the thing, they are right, to a point, but if you cant beat them or defeat them, how about turning the tables on them? I began to think about how you could make the comment spam into real benefits for a website and I came up with a couple of good things.

1. a ping is a ping,

2. comments are comments, well most of the time they are. What I realized is that if I designed a plugin that would allow a comment for say a certain period of time and if during that time someone confirmed that the comment was a real comment, then it would get posted, with a do follow link and if it was not confirmed, by a real person then it just gets deleted. This way if they are good comments then you and they get a benefit, but if they are robots, or just not real people then you turn the tables on them and you get the only benefit, and that is a ping…

Get it, Good, because while you may not be able to stop it you may be able to take advantage of it.

 

 


Productive wordpress plugins

How do you define productivity?

If you could save just 10 minutes per day how much time could you devote to things you really want to do every day?

when you study how much time it takes to do a task, such as typing, or posting to a blog you know after a while about how much time you need to have in order to maintain a website every day.

So how do you save time?

Getting the most work done in the least amount of time is that productive?

Yes, it is, because work is work and getting the job done faster is something that can help you get your blog noticed faster.


Tools you can use

Imagine for a moment that you have a job to do and in order to do that job you have two choices,

1. You do it yourself and it takes you two weeks to get the job done.

2. You buy a tool to help you get the job done in three days and take the rest of the week off.

Now in some cases you may find that the option you choose depends on how much time and money you have.

If you want to spend two weeks doing a mundane task over and over again then choose option number one.

If you want to practice your gold swing, or enjoy a day at the beach or take a vacation, well you get the idea.

Using the right tools can help you make the most of your time and that is more valuable than anything you have ever done in the past.

Find out about blogging tools that will help your business run faster and better.

Updating content

How does your blog grow, by small increments, or by big huge massive posts?

website content is about to become one of the most sought after services.

You could hire a website content writer to write your content. 

When you think about it, creating backlinks and other issues, can cause many problems, for your websites ranking, on many forums you can see ads for thousands of back links, and then later you see someone crying about how they got banned by search engines, yep no surprise there. If you said that you should grow your website by using solid marketing techniques, in small increments, then you get the lolly pop award and you deserve it too. The problem is that too many webmasters want to take the short cut to the fast track when they are not ready for that step in website development. It is all about the pattern, and if you do not know what that is, then read on because this may be one of the most important articles you have read in a long time. If you are not updating the content on your website as often as you can you are doing your self a dis service. How not updating your website daily could cost you more than you ever thought possible. Patterns, they all say something unique, and if your not careful what you are not saying to the search engines could cause you trouble.

How important is updating your website?

Would you say that it should be updated every week or once a month? The truth may shock you, the truth may be more than you may want to know. Would you be surprised to learn that you should update the content on your website every day in fact several times a day would be best. You can over do it, but the trends seem to indicate that updating your website with fresh and interesting content is very beneficial to your websites value to readers and customers. The facts are that most website operators fail to update their websites on a regular basis because it is time consuming, of the top 20 million websites, only a few are actually counted when looking at Alexa for traffic statistics, actual traffic analysis is not available until you reach the 999 thousand websites, that is not easy to do for most websites. The very fact that we are talking about most websites ranking amount the top three million says something about the sheer number of websites there are out there these days. With so many websites, and so much content, how do you stay ahead of your competition? That is the basis of this article, how updating your website effects your rankings on the internet and how it can help your business to have more traffic. First we should say a few things about how a websites value is obtained, it is a top secret thing for many search engines, however, there are some factors that are known and some that are unknown. Naturally it is not in the interest for a search engine to publish its search characteristics, because then people would be tempted to game the system to obtain results usually reserved only for high budget, corporate websites that spend lots of money on advertising. So it is a easy to see why the search engines want to protect the way they make money from large corporate clients that clearly can spend millions of dollars every year doing business online. The facts here say that updating your website will help you, but how much and how often that is the real question. We setup several websites from scratch and tested this out, on some websites we setup the content and just left it alone just to see what would happen. On other websites, we updated them monthly. On still other websites we updated them weekly. Finally we updated some websites every day. The results are clear, the more you update with fresh content the more traffic you receive and the better your website is indexed in the search engines.  We took a hard look to not just at the one website but at the others too, the ones that were less frequently updated received less traffic, they received less of everything in fact. So, again, the more you update your content with fresh content and new content, the better your website will perform, the problem here and this is a big deal is that most people do not have the time to devote to updating a website, it takes time and effort. That is why we started using plugins to adapt the time we had so that we could produce better results in less time… The results is in for this test too, the more we used the plugins, the better results we received, we also learned a great deal about what constitutes updating, for example just updating the time and day was not enough. We tested several websites where there was content which is commonly referred to as an auto blog or auto posting website. These websites performed poorly in fact many could scarcely produce even one or two traffic visits per day.

 


SEO and patterns what they mean

Every day of each day you have a decision to make those decisions leave behind a trail that can be followed.

 

Why every thing you do leaves a trail and what that trail tells the world about you.

The case of the crumbs and what they can do to your website.

SEO is all about knowing the latest information. Analyzing data is only part of how you find out the information you need to know. One of the most important things you can do is to analyze the data in such a way as to be able to know what that data means in relation to the time of year it is, if season statistics come into play?

Search engine optimization how it works and how it can effect your business. There are definite patterns in just about every aspect of life from what we eat to how often we update our websites with fresh new content, that pattern is something that search engines look hard and long at when they decide if your website is worth listing. The single biggest mistake that people make is failing to realize that every thing they do creates and generates a pattern.

Again patterns mean something, it comes in the form of data, this data can create an accurate look at what your website is and how it operates, if you never update your website chances are great that the search engines will not care much about your website and as a direct result they will not be sending you much in the way of traffic. Traffic is something that you need in order to succeed on line. Without traffic you can not do much online, except for just having a webpage. So, in every thing you do it creates a pattern, from where you park on the street to how often you go to the grocery store to shop for food, even what types of food you buy, using a credit card, that data, is used and often is used to help websites in the way they report information. Search Engines spiders track every single thing about your website. They create and generate reports every time you update your website, every time you post new material.

This generates, a pattern. Since these patterns are developed over time, it is really important more important than you realize. In fact it may mean everything when it comes to how well your website does in the search engines. Patterns mean everything, every step of the way in every thing you do online, it develops that pattern. Make sure the pattern you leave behind is the one you want the search engines to pick up and run with. This is the reason why you should be updating your website content every day.


software plug ins

If you think about a plugin as a tool then you know that the value of any tool is in how it works for you the user.

In many ways, Software is one of the most profitable business models for online development. plug ins give consumers choices when developing content online. WordPress software for websites and developing products What a plugin does is like plugging in an appliance it just works, and it is like a tool in this way as well. Software, is a tool, just like man and yes, woman have been using for many years, tools, can help you with your productivity. Tools help you do your job, it makes life easier, faster and yes, better.

Can you imagine what it must have been like for the earliest man?

Software is the one thing that we can not do without, we need it because it helps us get the most out of our lives.

Wordpress software is such a tool, it makes creating a website a quick fast and easy process.

 

 


seo keywords and how patterns effect your web page.

SEO keywords research.

Google keyword tool, meta keywords, the list of all the different types of SEO keywords is enormous.

 

In every instance in life we see patterns, they emerge in our lives.

They effect everything around us from the time we wake up in the morning until we go to bed at night. It is because of these patterns that we see methods of how human interaction is different, every time it is different, however, when you develop a pattern of never changing even the smallest things, it creates a problem for websites that use automatic methods of producing content.  

Now this is a big subject, and there are literally millions of millions of websites dedicated to SEO, however, only a hand full of them actually reveal anything that is worth reading, and still fewer of the services are worth what they advertise. Now you may be asking why is that? Well for the most part there are hundreds of these so called guarantee services, that promise you everything but deliver often nothing. It is a concern that we have so many of these services, that promise the number one ranking in Google, when you know they cannot deliver it, because the number one position is always a sponsored position, that means you have to pay Google for that position, now that is not bad, at least not entirely bad, because Google has to make money right, otherwise how could they afford all the costs associated with running a huge business and make no mistake it is a business, that is why most of these SEO companies are just bunk, trash, garbage, and scams. So the next time you are tempted to pay for an SEO service, think about it, can they really do what they claim they can do? Did you know that even just one or two links per day can benefit your website better than having 2000 backlinks per day? That might sound crazy, but in reality it is true, mostly because Google will penalize you for buying back links, and don't think they don't know what your doing, I mean come on, they were doing it long before you did, so they know what to look for and they know when you do it. So in reality, using social book marking, and SEO, using your own two hands will help your website more than buying a service. One final thought, and think about this long and hard, before you think about buying an SEO service, look at the ranking of the website you are buying from, are they in the top set? Or are they ranked really really low at Alexa? Now that will tell a huge story, because if the company that claims that they can get you high rankings cant even get high rankings for their own website, then how can you expect them to get high rankings for your website. Does that compute, I sure hope so, because I have had so many clients that have come to me wailing about how much money they have spend on SEO services and they get almost no results, and that my friends is the definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.


xcode

Has apple not learned its lesson yet?

It seems not, after apple took almost 5000 apps off line because of what some people saw are PC, reason, politically correct.

Apple recently changed its terms of use allowing more developers to develop with tools other than xcode, we feel it is important to give credit where credit it due.

What makes a good app?

With all the different environments available for programmers, it is interesting to note that xcode is one of the most miss understood programming methods out there, it is not surprising, apple does not go out of its way to explain, or even make it understandable.

In the forums you will notice a lack of empathy toward the beginning user, it is even apparent that official reply are far and few between, in recent changes to the SDK, software development kit, terms of use, many thousands of developers found that they could no longer support the apple platform.

This created a lot of bad press and even more bad feelings among the very people that had supported apple when apple was not as popular as it is today.

In some of these miss begotten, terms, you can allegedly only use “certain approved” programming techniques.

This is not a good way to encourage the creative process.

As a result the forums have become literal ghost towns, with fewer and fewer participants.

If SJ wants people to start using Xcode, I think they will need to put a little of their mouth behind the growth of the tool into a more Object oriented offering, such as many more modern tools have already made available to its user base.

One thing for sure, unless apple changes its ways, one of the things you will be getting with your apple products will allegedly be worms.
