Rumblings of an Internet Addict!

Another week which is gone, although every moment which passes is one moment more on our life we tend to waste them quite a bit. And life is just a collection of moments.

Anyway this week was a busy week, meeting in San Francisco with John Michaels about expanding our setup to the Coast and then as always working on the old projects and programming new ones.

The solar panel web site is up and running, I don’t intend to start working on it, but as an investment on new technologies is just great, plus it feels good working on such a scheme, this country is tired of spending astronomical amounts on gas and all this money is going to our potential enemies. Solar energy is here to stay, my God, if we just harness the power of the sun we could have all the energy we need and even have to spare.

Solar Panels are here to stay!

Then we started new blogs, http://karaoke166online.com/ and http://firsthostinghouse.com/.

My Mad Blog will be exactly this a rumbling mad blog, I will just talk about anything under the sun, back to solar panels!!!

Serious, My Mad Blog will be the child of my rumblings. The Other one,… unconsciously I wrote “other” with capital letter! So First Hosting House is an investment… I will try to update it frequently as I hope to improve its ratings; First Hosting House will be about web hosting, and web hosting news. Clear?

Blog Content

Today, we’re going to talk about the type of content that is appropriate for your blog in order to make it cost-effective. First off, I want you to realize that there is no set span that your blog should have, which means you can write about whatever you’re involved in.

However, the difference between a profitable blog and a non-profitable blog is the way the blog is written. Just imagine, would you prefer to read your university professor’s lecture notes or the latest novel by your favourite author?

You may prefer to read the novel because it appeals more to your interest, or because it is not as mind-numbing as the lecture notes by your professor. However, the most important point is people like to read “light” stuff most of the time. You see, when people log on to your blog, they are not only looking for information – they are also looking for information they can obtain easily, and better still in a relaxed manner.

So, to attract more visitors as well as to keep your current visitors coming back for more, it is very important to add a human touch to your blog posts. This can be done by simply imagining you’re talking about a certain topic with your personal friend. An extra bonus for your readers would be a great sense of humour, so try to add funny comments in your articles where they are suitable.

Another important key point is to avoid addressing your reader as a plural unit. What I really mean is you should not write as if you’re preparing a speech. Instead, you should write as if you’re having a conversation to a single person because this will make your visitor think of you more as a personal friend rather than a person of higher authority.

Besides that, it is also very useful to establish your own personality through your words. Human beings are very curious creatures, so naturally your visitors would want to know as much about you as the information you’re offering them.

Having a distinctive personality in your blog would make a world’s difference between your blog about gadgets and all the other blogs about gadgets out there. This is a lot like creating your own brand name, where people immediately remember your blog’s name when they need to find out information about gadgets, just like how people immediately think of McDonald’s for fastfood or Nike for sportswear.

So, the lesson for today is to simply write as an equal friend to your visitors, write to them as if you’re talking to a single person and establish your own personality on your blog.

Tips for choosing a domain name.

If you ever decide to start a website then you certainly will be in need a domain. Lets be clear from the very beginning, this will be your most important decision, it is not choosing the web host, because web hosts if you are not happy with them you can change, even if it is a hassle!  The domain, is not so easy, imagine Google, deciding to change the domain google.com to something else, how many people do you think would follow them?

So if you agree that domain is one of the most important decisions you are going to take, let’s continue.

The two rules, not to forget, COM is better, 2nd the smaller the better, I have a customer who registered the following domain: globaltrustassetmanagement.com

 

Yes this domain is like 30 letters, if you have to type it on your browser, it will be a Herculean task!

 

So a domain with 6 to 12 letters is perfect. Hosting-marketers.com I registered when I did not know as much as I know now…

 

Lets go to the basics, I’m going to give you an example, actually this example is from last night.

 

Last night chatting with my brother in law, I realized that he wanted advice for a web site and to which affiliate program he should join, an example of a web site with reviews of furniture came up. I gave him a short lesson using a blog and explained that even with a blog a person could make money, between a furniture web site and a blog with new content every day, most probably when a consumer searched the net for some product they will be directed to the blog and not to the main website.

 

Then we talked about solar panels. Now the important part is coming.

 

When we talked about solar panels I made a search on Google for solar panels affiliate programs, it came out a very nice site from San Diego which offers its affiliates 10%. I searched Google again for sites with solar panels, they have on their database less then 6 million web sites, the first and second position is occupied by sites like wikipedia.org so they don’t count, they don’t sell anything! Then on the 4 and 5th position is site who sell, this is the ones we have to worry. So I made a 15 minutes research, the site on the 4th position, is difficult to beat, but the 5th position is good news, how?

 

First I went to http://tools.marketleap.com/publinkpop/    Link Popularity Check,  the 5th site as only 134 back links that Google knows about, then I checked the Page Rank that Google gives to that web site, a mere 5.

 

So if we made a site work on it to get 200 back links in some time we will be on the 5th position ourselves!

 

Next step I went to Overture  http://inventory.overture.com/d/searchinventory/suggestion/

and checked solar panel, it came up on the month of September 2006 56000, this is really good and please note SOLAR PANEL not solar panels, actually solar panels came up only about 2000.

So I had a nice niche market, I decided to try a little further and I went to whois.org to check if I could find a nice combination of solar panels to go for a domain. What is my surprise that panelsolar.org is available.

 

It isn’t COM from rule one, but still it’s not bad.

 

Anyhow I bough the domain yesterday, and lets see what happens.

 

I hope that this short article, gave you some insight on how to buy a domain.

Before I close this Newsletter, recently Hosting Marketers
as started selling domains, with it’s hosting packages, I’m
afraid that our prices are rather expensive, at the moment
we are selling domains at $15.00, I hope to negotiate a
better deal in the future with my registrar, Until then
they offer me the following deal, for the next 10 days
only, any domain with TLD dot info at $ 5.00 and WhoisGuard
included. This offer is good for the next 10 days, but I’m
afraid I can only accept Paypal payments at the moment. If
you are interested, please contact Chris at
info@hosting-marketers.com give him the domain or domains
you are interested.

Warm greetings,
Paul Santos

The perfect husband—-

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cell
phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands free
speaker-function and begins to talk.

Everyone else in the room stops to listen.

MAN: “Hello”

WOMAN: “Honey, it’s me. I can hardly hear you ………are
you at the club?”

MAN: “Yes”

WOMAN: “I’m at the mall now and found this beautiful
leather coat. It’s only $1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?”

MAN: “Sure……go ahead if you like it that much.”

WOMAN: “I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw
the new 2006 models. I saw one I really liked”

MAN: “How much?”

WOMAN: “$90,000”

MAN: “OK, but for that price I want it with all the
options.”

WOMAN: “Great! Oh, and one more thing… The house I wanted
last year is back on the market. They’re asking $950,000”

MAN: “Well, then go ahead and give them an offer of
$900,000. They will probably take it. If not, we can go the
extra 50 thousand. It’s really a pretty good price.”

WOMAN: “OK. I’ll see you later! I love you so much!!”

MAN: “Bye! I love you, too.”

The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are
staring at him in astonishment, mouths agape.

He smiles and asks: “Anyone know who this phone belongs
to?!”

Tips about Cheap Web Hosting.

Tips about Cheap Web Hosting.

Here are some things you should know before finding a cheap web hosting provider services.

You should pay very careful attention to the terms of use and the acceptable use policy of that cheap web hosting provider. You can find a good deal because cheap web hosting industry is very competitive but if a host is way too cheap for the features it offers compared to others, don’t go with them.

Going with a cheap web host requires extra research: read the reviews of that host on Alexa, look for any information about them in the search engines, see how long they have been in business. Visit the support pages and see if you are comfortable with the level of support offered by this host. You can’t expect to get the greatest and fastest support for every little problem you have by paying less than /month.

Such a business would fail soon because qualified support personnel costs money. Larger companies and Windows plans are usually more expensive.

Cheap web hosts oversell space and bandwidth, counting on the fact that most people won’t use them fully. This is normal and you shouldn’t be kicked out if you do use all your allocated space and bandwidth. Low cost web hosts often don’t fully control their servers – they might have a dedicated server with another company to make their costs lowest possible, so they are sometimes forced to rely on others to perform some physical tasks like replacing some hardware on the server.
