Viral marketing has become a popular means of advertising and marketing because they are relatively low cost. To avoid being tagged as spam mail, viral marketing counts on the eagerness of one person to pas on the product. If a person sees the name of the person they know as the sender, they won’t block it and open it as well. 

Many companies offer incentives such as discounts and rebates when they help in spreading their viral marketing. They rely on the number of recipients a viral marketing gets from one person in determining the amount or number of incentive they can be attributed with.

The Importance of Search Engines

The Importance of Search Engines

It is the search engines that finally bring your website to the notice of the prospective customers. When a topic is typed for search, nearly instantly, the search engine will sift through the millions of pages it has indexed about and present you with ones that match your topic. The searched matches are also ranked, so that the most relevant ones come first.

Remember that a prospective customer will probably only look at the first 2-3 listings in the search results. So it does matter where your website appears in the search engine ranking.

Further, they all use one of the top 6-7 search engines and these search engines attract more visitors to websites than anything else. So finally it all depends on which search engines the customers use and how they rank your site.

It is the Keywords that play an important role than any expensive online or offline advertising of your website.

It is found by surveys that a when customers want to find a website for information or to buy a product or service, they find their site in one of the following ways:
The first option is they find their site through a search engine.
Secondly they find their site by clicking on a link from another website or page that relates to the topic in which they are interested.
Occasionally, they find a site by hearing about it from a friend or reading in an article. 

Thus it’s obvious the the most popular way to find a site, by search engine, represents more than 90% of online users. In other words, only 10% of the people looking for a website will use methods other than search engines.

All search engines employ a ranking algorithm and one of the main rules in a ranking algorithm is to check the location and frequency of keywords on a web page. Don’t forget that algorithms also give weightage to link population (number of web pages linking to your site). When performed by a qualified, experienced search engine optimization consultant, your site for high search engine rankings really does work, unless you have a lot of money and can afford to pay the expert. With better knowledge of search engines and how they work, you can also do it on your own.

Some Essential things your website should have

Must Have Features For Your Web Site 

Just don’t focus on the home page, keywords and titles.
The first step to sales when customers visit your site to see the products they were looking for. Of course, search engine optimization and better rankings can’t keep your customer on your site or make them buy. The customer having visited your site, now ensure that he gets interested in your products or services and stays around. Motivate him to buy the product by providing clear and unambiguous information. Thus if you happen to sell more than one product or service, provide all necessary information about this, may be by keeping the  information at a different page. By providing suitable and easily visible links, the customer can navigate to these pages and get the details. 

Understanding Your Target Customer
If you design a website you think will attract clients, but you don’t really know who your customers are and what they want to buy, it is unlikely you make much money. Website business is an extension or replacement for a standard storefront. You can send email to your existing clients and ask them to complete a survey or even while they are browsing on your website. Ask them about their choices. Why do they like your products? Do you discount prices or offer coupons? Are your prices consistently lower than others? Is your shipping price cheaper? Do you respond faster to client questions? Are your product descriptions better? Your return policies and guarantees better than your competitor’s? To know your customer you can check credit card records or ask your customer to complete a simple contact form with name, address, age, gender, etc. when they purchase a product.

Does your website give enough contact information? 
When you sell from a website, your customer can buy your products 24 hrs a day and also your customers may be from other states that are thousands of miles away. Always provide contact information, preferably on every page of your website, complete with mailing address, telephone number and an email address that reaches you. People may need to contact you about sales, general information or technical problems on your site. Also have your email forwarded to another email address if you do not check your website mailbox often. When customer wants to buy online provide enough options like credit card, PayPal or other online payment service.

Tips to Increase Ranking and Website Traffic

It is worth cataloguing the basic principles to be enforced to increase website traffic and search engine rankings. 
Create a site with valuable content, products or services.
Place primary and secondary keywords within the first 25 words in your page content and spread them evenly throughout the document.
Research and use the right keywords/phrases to attract your target customers.
Use your keywords in the right fields and references within your web page. Like Title, META tags, Headers, etc.

Keep your site design simple so that your customers can navigate easily between web pages, find what they want and buy products and services.
Submit your web pages i.e. every web page and not just the home page, to the most popular search engines and directory services. Hire someone to do so, if required. Be sure this is a manual submission. Do not engage an automated submission service.
Keep track of changes in search engine algorithms and processes and accordingly modify your web pages so your search engine ranking remains high. Use online tools and utilities to keep track of how your website is doing.

Monitor your competitors and the top ranked websites to see what they are doing right in the way of design, navigation, content, keywords, etc. 
Use reports and logs from your web hosting company to see where your traffic is coming from. Analyze your visitor location and their incoming sources whether search engines or links from other sites and the keywords they used to find you.
Make your customer visit easy and give them plenty of ways to remember you in the form of newsletters, free reports, reduction coupons etc.

Demonstrate your industry and product or service expertise by writing and submitting articles for your website or for article banks so you are perceived as an expert in your field.
When selling products online, use simple payment and shipment methods to make your customer’s experience fast and easy.
When not sure, hire professionals. Though it may seem costly, but it is a lot less expensive than spending your money on a website which no one visits.
Don’t look at your website as a static brochure. Treat it as a dynamic, ever-changing sales tool and location, just like your real store to which your customers with the same seriousness.

Website Design

5 Important Rules in Website Design

When it comes to your website, extra attention should be paid to every minute detail to make sure it performs optimally to serve its purpose. Here are seven important rules of thumb to observe to make sure your website performs well. 

1) Do not use splash pages

Splash pages are the first pages you see when you arrive at a website. They normally have a very beautiful image with words like "welcome" or "click here to enter". In fact, they are just that -- pretty vases with no real purpose. Do not let your visitors have a reason to click on the "back" button! Give them the value of your site up front without the splash page.

2) Do not use excessive banner advertisements

Even the least net savvy people have trained themselves to ignore banner advertisements so you will be wasting valuable website real estate. Instead, provide more valueable content and weave relevant affiliate links into your content, and let your visitors feel that they want to buy instead of being pushed to buy. 

3) Have a simple and clear navigation

You have to provide a simple and very straightforward navigation menu so that even a young child will know how to use it. Stay away from complicated Flash based menus or multi-tiered dropdown menus. If your visitors don't know how to navigate, they will leave your site. 

4) Have a clear indication of where the user is

When visitors are deeply engrossed in browsing your site, you will want to make sure they know which part of the site they are in at that moment. That way, they will be able to browse relevant information or navigate to any section of the site easily. Don't confuse your visitors because confusion means "abandon ship"!

5) Avoid using audio on your site

If your visitor is going to stay a long time at your site, reading your content, you will want to make sure they're not annoyed by some audio looping on and on on your website. If you insist on adding audio, make sure they have some control over it -- volume or muting controls would work fine.

5 Reasons Why Blogging is the New Internet Marketing Tool 

Blogging is a concept that started in late 90s.  It used to be a way to comment an existing webpage, an opportunity for visitors and readers to react or voice out one’s opinion on the said page.  What started as a single-sentence commentary has evolved into pages of personal take on just about anything and everything under the sun.  As it continues to move forward, online advertising has tapped into the blog’s potential.  Here are 5 reasons why you should use blogging as an Internet marketing tool.  

1.Blogging is simple.  The simplest way to get your piece on the net is through blogging.  No skills are necessary… an average adult can read and type, or at least click a mouse.  It’s like having a virtual piece of paper and you just write your ideas, experiences, new products, and hope that the truth behind your articles comes out and entice your reader to also try your product.  If you have a PC and an Internet connection (who doesn’t?) then you can blog and advertise.

2. Blogging is authentic.  In this day and age where advertising saturate our lives, we question the credibility of promoters’ claims.  However, in blogs, real people share their real-life experiences, unscathed by paid advertising.  Reading blogs about first-hand product use is like talking to people about their first-hand experience.  You definitely want to buy a tried and tested product.

3. Blogging is free.  Because blogging is yet to be proven as a mainstream online advertising media, most sites see it as something to augment current marketing tools and thus offer it for free.   Any opportunity for free webtime is definitely a bonus especially to businesses that are starting up.  Needless to say, paid blog pages can generate more income for your seriously growing business. 

4. Blogging builds credibility.  As you get more and more into writing your experiences on a particular product or industry, your readers come to realize that they can depend on your posts for their own information needs.  As such, you become an expert on it; as a consequence, more readers visit your site and more bloggers link to your blogs.  As companies and professional organizations notice the growth of your readership base, they may soon get in touch with you for advertising on your blog page, or make you an affiliate, which pays for every referral generated from your blog site.

5. Blogging builds your market.  Unless you are a Hollywood star, chances are, only your Mom reads your posts.  Mom has a lot of friends, so she lets her friends know how interesting your blog site is.  But you need not depend on Mom to increase your readership base.  Look into the following ways to build your market through blogging:

-By using your e-mail.  Today, blogging is overcoming the e-mail’s popularity in quickly and effectively reaching and expanding a market.  In this age of speed and quick access, logging in and downloading e-mail is simply taking longer than clicking into a blog site.  Let them explore your site by using a short e-mail message as teaser to your blog site.  If your e-mail is on an entirely different subject, use your e-mail signature to give a link to the site.

-By using subscription.  An easy way to get your readers e-mail is to give them an opportunity to subscribe to your blogsite.  Keep some exclusive information for your subscribers to entice readers to subscribe and give their e-mail address.  Just be responsible in using their e-mail address, as the last thing you want is a comment on your blog that you are a spammer.

-By understanding your readers.  Conduct a simple survey for your readers to understand their profile and advertising preferences.  Ask consumers to give you feedback on a post, an ad link, or a trial that you shared.  In this way, it is like interviewing your readers without the commitment and intrusion of a face-to-face interview.

-By joining a blog network –A network of blogs maybe a collection of blog sites that share the same industry, interest, readership base, payment mode, etc.  Consumers find credibility and convenience in clicking one link to several real bloggers about a single subject.  Clearly, more bloggers are better than one.

-By using RSS. RSS is the fastest growing technology on the Internet today.  As such, having RSS feeds to your blog is definitely another means of generating awareness for your readership base.  Having a variety of feeds can add interest to your blog site.  

Give your business a boost by effectively using blogging as an Internet marketing tool.


If writing is an art, then, blogging is one way of using words to come up with an art. This is because people who are into blogging are the ones who are artistic on their own sense, carefully choosing words that would best describe their feelings, sentiments, wishes, desires, and everything.

Basically, blogs were first introduced as weblogs that refer to a “server’s log file.” It was created when web logging hit the virtual market. Since its inception in the mid-1990s, web logging gradually saturated the virtual community making the Internet a viable source of greater information.

However, with web logging, you still need a web site and domain names, but with blogging, you do not need anything just an account with blog providers. In most cases, these kinds of blogs are free of charge.

With the onset of blogging in the industry, personal journaling had been a common ground for people who wish to be known all over the world. However, not literally famous as this is not a case on being popular or well-known personality.

Generally, blogs are created for personal use. Like a journal, people can write their daily adventures, sentiments, and whatever ideas they want to express online.

Nevertheless, with the advent of the online businesses, blogs had gradually taken the limelight in providing businesses a chance to boost their productivity online. This is where the business blogs have taken the limelight.

Business blogs are, basically, created to advertise the services or products of a certain web site or online business in order to increase online sales.

Moreover, business blogs are also one way of promoting the company so that the other readers will know that a certain company exists online. With blogs, entrepreneurs are able to establish a name in the virtual market through articles that can be very useful in the reader’s life.

From there, you can make money out of blogs by simply syndicating it to your business’ web site. This can be done through the RSS technology.

So, if you are thinking to create a blog, whether for business or for pleasure, you need to know some tips that could help you get through and make your blog one of the interesting blogs online.

Here’s how:

1. Consider your audience

Even if your blog is generally personal, still, it would be better to consider the minds of your readers. You have to think of something that would interest them.

After all, most of the reasons of people who write blogs are not at all confined to their own personal motives. Most of them would love to be “heard” (or read) and would love to be known, in some way or another, even for just a minute. Hence, it is very important to come with a write up that everybody can understand, not necessarily that these people can relate to it but they can understand it.

2. Pictures speaks a thousand words

To make your blogging worth the browsing effort of your readers, it would be extremely nice if you will put some pictures in it. It does not necessarily mean you have to place a picture of yourself. Any photographs will do as long as it does not pose danger or insult to anyone who will be reading your blog.

3. Make constructive and beneficial blogs

Even if you are free to write anything you wan to say to the world, still, it would be better to create some write-ups that would be beneficial to your readers.

After all, its information technology that you have there so better be inclined to provide information rather than sheer quirky entertainment.

4. Avoid making multifaceted and complicated blogs

In order to have an interesting blogs, try not to use some highly technical and highfalutin words. After all, it is not a science discourse or a debate that you are making, so better stick to simple facts and short blogs.

Bear in mind that most people who use the Internet usually do more scanning than scrutinizing each site word for word. Therefore, it would be better to come with blogs that will not bore your readers just because you have these lengthy articles.

5. Make it interactive

As much as possible and if your capacity will allow it, make your blog interactive. Yu can do this by placing some video or audio clips in your blog.

You can even place an area for comments or for some feedbacks. In this way, you can get some impressions or reactions of other people. Who knows, you might even gain some friends just by making them feel at home in your blog site. 

Indeed, blogs are not created just for the mere fun of it. It also has its own purpose in the world of the Internet. 
Therefore, for people who wish to harness their craft, as far as writing is concerned, blogs are the best way to do it. 

As they say, blogging is the contemporary term of creative and commercial writing.

Want Some Extra Cash Recycle Your Old Phone

Im Sure you are most proberly like me and have had loads of mobile phones in your time,i get bored of mine very quickly lol.
But did you know your mobile phone is made up of some expensive materials.
Instead of just throwing away phones you don't need any more or keeping them in a drawer you should look into recycling them.
Not only could you sell old phones for cash and make some money but you will also be conserving useful materials that can be reused.
Why are Old Phones Worth Money? You may be wondering why companies want to buy old phones for cash.
Well the main reason is that mobile phones contain some expensive materials such as copper, lead, nickel and even gold.
These materials can be recycled and this means they can be sold again for reuse in industry.
Just like most of us now use recycable bins for our household rubish ie plastic bottles,tins,cardboard etc.
The planet's natural resources are under increasing pressure and this means prices for raw goods such as metals and plastics are at an all-time high.
By recycling mobile phone companies can gain back significant volumes of expensive materials that would otherwise go straight into landfill.
This is why so many businesses are now offering chances to sell phones for cash.
How are Mobile Phones Recycled? Once you have sold your old phones for cash they will be taken to a processing factory.
Here the phones will be separated into reusable phones in good condition or refurbishable and recyclable ones broken or damaged.
The reusable phones will then be tested, refurbished and wiped of data ready for resell.
Many people throw phones away that are in perfect working order or that can be repaired quickly and easily.
These can be resold back into the market as refurbished and this can extend their working lives. 
The recyclable phones will move on for processing: 
Phones will be stripped of usable parts such as LCD screens and batteries that could be used in the refurbishment of other phones.
Any remaining parts will be processed in a high temperature smelting furnace until they have been reduced to a lava-like consistency.
Im so glad i dont work in one of these places the smell of melting plastic is horrible lol
This thick liquid will then be poured into special containers where an agitate is added.
This will help to separate key metals such as gold, silver, copper and lead which can then be siphoned off and reused.
Harmful substances such as cadmium and lead will be disposed of safely or reused if applicable.
So the moto of this article is that you could make yourself a bit of cash just for a old broken phone or one in a drawer.

Money Working | Making Money

Money Working | Making Money: So you want to make money working at home! You are not alone. According to a recent search I did the term make money was typed in almost 100,000 times in one month. There are a lot of people wanting to make money working at home.

I was one of them and now can excitedly say I do just that. No more traffic jams, bosses, co-workers, 8-5, Mon-Fri., 2 weeks vacation etc.

Don't get me wrong! A J.O.B. certainly is needed to pay the bills and provide for the lifelong essentials for millions of people.

But it is interesting how many people have figured out that there is more than one way to do that. And making money working at home is one of them.

What proves to be a little harder is finding a job working at home. There are a lot of companies that are willing to sell you information lists that claim to have companies looking at work at home employees or sub-contractors.

My own opinion is that the only one who makes out on this method is the person selling you the information. My advice is Do Not Pay To Buy Information On Companies Looking For Work At Home People.

About Traffic Exchanges

I have used Traffic Exchanges for the last 5 years and learned quite a lot about traffic exchanges and how to use them, one thing i get asked a lot is how i make money on traffic exchanges, the answer is so simple PROMOTION i promote where ever i surf and get referals on every traffic exchange i surf those referals then upgrade or buy hit packages and then i earn commissions. Now i must admit i tend to be a upgraded member myself so therefore earn better commissions.    
Ok whats a traffic exchange i hear you say, a traffic exchange service serves as a marketing tool used to promote your website and bring to it Quality website traffic from other members using a traffic exchange. You can promote with banners and text links also.You sign up to a traffic site then you can add your website or blog or what ever you want to promote,you then have to surf to earn credits these credits are then used to advertize your own site.In other words you look at other peoples sites and in turn they will look at yours.
There are many things to look for when joining a Traffic Exchange. It has to be manual to ensure your sites get seen. You want a customer service team that cares for your needs and looks after its members, earn cash commissions on upgrades and traffic purchases, and get free credits on your referrals. You want fun Games and Competitons to earn even more credits. 
Exchanges enforce a certain credit ratio, which illustrates the amount of websites the surfer must view in order to receive one hit through the program for their promoted website. Many sites offer the ability to upgrade one's membership level for a more equal credit ratio.As the viewers are all website owners or affiliates, it is possible that some might find certain member sites interesting and thus make note of them on their own sites, sending more traffic their way. Most traffic programs also impose a time limit when members are browsing, ranging from 10 seconds to 60 seconds. Some incorporate the use of captcha to ensure user interaction.Almost all traffic exchange programs are free, although many of them offer special features to paid members and offer credits for purchase. Almost all traffic exchange programs encourage users to build their own referral networks, which in turn increases the referrers' amount of credits.The traffic generated in a traffic exchange can be leveraged by using a downline builder to assist the user in building a referral network in the many different traffic exchanges.In practice, traffic exchange programs are generally used by small business owners or marketers who either want free advertising or use the exchange programs for low-budget advertisement campaigns
Traffic Exchanges date back to the beginning of the web and were primarily used by organizations to share sites between employees. Viewers would rate pages in a similar fashion to the now popular social bookmarking phenomenon. When interesting websites were hard to find a traffic exchange for an organisation new to the web proved an invaluable tool.
Circa 1994 traffic exchanges moved from corporate intranets to the web. In an effort to build communities the concept of rating pages was replaced with rewarding members for viewing.
It was 1996 before traffic exchanges began to charge for traffic and around this time the concept changed from a tool for locating interesting sites to a commercial one. This change in direction resulted in increased popularity at the expense of the content which is now almost exclusively commerce

Why do some Traffic exchanges Fail

I own a traffic exchange and got it about 2 years ago and i can speak from experience here as i am a hardcore surfer and been doing that for 7 years,now it can be quite hard to make your TE a sucessfull one but as someone already pointed out it has to be original and it has to have a great domain name for a start.

I mean when i see a Traffic Exchange called silly surf that does not make me want to join that exchange so think very hard about your domain name fist.

The other main thing is not to expect instant success otherwise you will be dissapointed these things take time, i have seen loads of exchanges open up and then a few months later close again just because they did not make $1000`s straight away,and then you see other exchanges fail because they never promote their site lol.

I work sometimes 18 hours a day promoting my site and learning about the programming and design that goes into sites so i can do everything my self.I did not just jump into owning a Traffic Exchange it was something i thourght about for awhile and i was still surprised how much hard work goes into making a Traffic Exchange work.It depends on how far are you willing to work to make your exchange work?
Remember to listen to what others have to say never think you know better because im sure that 90% of TE owner know nothing about owning a Te till they actually own one lol.If you get stuck ask someone there are a lot of people out there that will either help you or offer advice,look on the internet there are hundreds of programs out there that can help you also.

My newest trails and errors

Well this last few weeks i decided that in order to go further with building and designing websites i would have to learn more than i knew already. So i decided that first i would learn about html and how to use it so i could change things on my site like colours and headings and generally make my pages better looking and to do it all myself.Now i looked on the internet and found some very interesting sites that can help you , if you are planning to learn html then you need to take a look at this site and the best thing is that it is free and very helpfull.
They do a huge amount of programming information that can help you learn the basic`s of html and css and php and sql also javascript and much more , it was like being back in school lol. Now dont get me wrong it took quite a bit of time learning this bit by bit when i had the time and trust me i dont get that much free time.But after trying different things out i soon got the hang of the basics of html.

My next project is to lean all about php programming so i can add more interesting things to my traffic exchange without having to pay a programmer to do it for me.So far i have learnt a little php but will keep you informed of how i get on in this project as i imagine it will take a little longer to understand php programming properly.But first i will show you how easy html is to learn and what it can do, take a quick look at my site ,you can of course bookmark my site while you are there :) here is the link Free Traffic Shop

 Now the Front cover was done like that all with basic knowledge of html and straight away my front page is transformed into a eye catch site which is what we all want to have.And one thing you will need to know is how to add backlinks to your site as this is very important for the rankings on google and yahoo.I tend to have a page just dedicated to backlinks and work hard to try and get as many as i can , there are sites out there that exchange backlinks for free. Now to add a back link into the page the best way to do this is to use html code like the one below and it will 
change it just to show as Vist Free Traffic Shop Today but if you then mouse over the link it will show the site and one click and you are straight at that site clever huh.Try it out and try and perfect it or if you think that your cant remember it open up your note book and set up a file and call it html codes and copy it so you can always double check



<a href="" target="_blank">Visit Free Traffic Shop Today!</a> 

<p>If you copy this code to target= "_blank", the link will open in a new browser window/tab.And this is great for adding links to your sites or blogs or even emails</p>


Now to that piece of code you can do lots of different codes to make it bigger or change the colour so it could be red or which ever colour you want it to be so stay tuned to this blog for more info on html.

Keep in Touch with your Members

The best way to look at this is by thinking of your website as one of your team, a dedicated member of staff or even your business partner. You’re working together and aiming for the same goal. Your website is working extremely hard for you by racing around the internet and making sure that anyone looking for products or services like yours knows about you!
Your website is responsible for marketing your business, bringing potential customers to your door and showing them what you do and why they should be your customer! So your website needs all the latest information about your business.

Make sure that your website has all the information it needs to answer people’s questions and encourage a positive response. There is also another way to encourage maximum response from potential customers and visitors to your website.

 Newsletters keep you touch with existing and potential customers. When customers sign up to receive a newsletter, they are inviting you to keep them informed about new products, services, special offers and special events etc! By requesting your newsletter, they have also eliminated any Spam restrictions or barriers, which means you can contact them by email whenever you like! Keeping in touch with customers like this will make sure they think of YOU the next time they need the kind of products or services you offer.

  Keep Newsletters Short and Punchy and always include a link direct to your website. The link could take people to your home page or a particular page promoting your special offer or even a particular product or group of products within your shopping basket.
