My Road To Internet Success - So Far!

Ok so the whole Internet Marketing thing can be quite scary when you first get into it. I thought I'd share some of my experiences to date.

I have been looking at Internet Marketing for a while. I managed to get some resale rights for a DVD set about Internet Marketing. I planned on selling these DVDs Off-line to a mailing list that I payed for, to people with internet businesses and websites. So I found myself writing my sales letter. With no previous experience of writing copy this proved difficult. What proved more difficult was the fact that i was trying to sell to a market that I wasnt in and had very little knowledge about! I decided that I really needed to find out what Internet Marketing is all about. So I sat down and watched all of the DVDs I'd planned to sell and try to understand as much as possible as quickly as possible. The dvds are from a seminar that was held in Las Vegas. The seminar was the "Internet Marketers Superconference", and the speakers where the biggest names in internet marketing. People such as Armand Morin, Bruce Clay, Carl Gelleti.

With an ever increasing knowledge base about different marketing strategies and ways to make money on the internet, I was itching to start builing my own site and start making money. So off I went and registerd a domain, set up a hosting account and really started to move in the right direction. It was then that I really started to struggle. I had so many ideas flying around my head I didn't know where to begin. What was i going to sell? What Market was i going to sell to? What about the basics?, I'd never built a website in my life, all that html code looks so complicated. So i decided that I'd just get up there and give it a go, if I need to learn something, I'll learn it, somehow.

I downloaded a free 30 day trial of Dreamweaver That proved to be a great tool. It's surprising how easy it is usuing that software. I have now put up 3 websites. I used the same hosing account and created Sub-Domains. I think this is great, I can basically create as many sub-domains as I want, publish them as individual wesites and i only have to pay for one account! Fantastic! By the way, I published the Three websites all before the 30 day Free trial of Dreamweaver expired!

So where am I now?

I'm learning about search engine optimization. I need to get ranked by Google. I need to get as much traffic as possible to my sites so i can start testing different Marketing Strategies.

Please feel free to visit my sites and contact me with any feedback.

Review: Google Profits - The Easy Way To Earn On Google

Whenever it comes to investing in information, I always remember the story of the plumber who fixed the factory’s pipes and invoiced a hefty fee for “knowing where to hit”.

Here follows my review on an ebook that “knows where to hit” when it comes to making money with Google.

The Google Profits ebook by Wade Winger

Google Profits opens with an introduction to the basics on a particular brand of internet earning: harnessing the combined power of affiliate marketing and Google Ads.

The recommended affiliate system in the book is Clickbank, and you are given everything you need to know, including clear screen shots, on how to set up a ClickBank account and get choosing the eproducts that can earn a steady income in affiliate commissions.

The book is divided throughout into two sections: information and action - the information sections tell you everything you need to know, clearly and concisely and the action sections take you through how to do things. Again, with screen shots and very clear instructions.

This ebook would be worth it’s cover price for the hand-holding in getting set up with ClickBank and Google Ads alone - but it goes way further.

Wade Winger is an honest and easy to follow author, who reads as a supportive guide on the rocky road to internet riches. He gives good information, clearly knows what he’s talking about from direct experience, and he readily shares the tips and tweaks that are the difference between making a profit and running up your Visa bill with Google ad fees that don’t make sales.

His safety formula for bidding on ads that will bring results is excellent.

Throughout Google Profits you feel like you’re in good and experienced hands, there is never a sense of a half-baked product out to make a buck. Wade is giving you his own time tested recipe for success.

He even gives a detailed breakdown of his own test campaigns and shows you how to decide a potentially good earner from a product that won’t earn you money, with just a few days and a few dollars investment.

I’ve tested his process myself, and am watching my profits and progress with interest. Once you’ve got the hang of the info from the book, all you really need to replicate the process and set up additional money earning ad campaigns is the handy cheat sheet included as a bonus. With Google Profits by your side, you could well be on your way to a tidy second income.

In conclusion: a well presented, informative and hype-free manual to earning money with Google ads and affiliate products. Highly recommended.

Locate People With Ease

Maintaining a good social circle is both productive as well as satisfying. I am sure there are some school and college friends you have kept touch with who still reply to your e mails and call up some times. Unfortunately, this is not the case with everyone. There are times, when we think of getting in touch with a certain person we new and it is almost impossible for us to find him. Using numerous ways electronic and physical, it is a snap to locate people today. With a personal computer connected to the Internet, everything is possible. Today's search technologies make searching for a person a breeze.

The first method that people turn to for locating people even today is through a mutual acquaintance. It is well known how powerful mouth to mouth information link is. If this friend fails to give the right then location, only then do people think of other means.

The next step an individual may take to locate some one is to find out the work place of the person he or she is looking for and inquire there. If this fails, then technology comes in. Internet yellow pages list hundreds and thousands of people’s names, e mails, telephone numbers and other details. This may be the next stop for locating a person.

Today all big companies have web sites listing the details of people who work for them. This might be another great place to peak into for quick and easy information.

The easiest way for me would be to use some of these new services like HI5 and Multiply. HI5 is a free service where you can invite and be invited to joined friend circles. Then through these circles, you can meet other people who are the friends of your circle members forming a huge chain. With search and a diary feature, this service is an excellent way to keep in touch and locate old friends.

Classmates and school friends, usually maintain a mailing list on free services like yahoogroups.com or googlegroups.com. If you get on board of one of these lists it is simple from there to locate the person you are looking for.

If nothing works, then the school alumni can turn out to be your best hope. They often keep track and store records on all students. This may be the best place to look for a friend if everything else fails.

With powerful record keeping abilities and searching technologies, locating people is not what it was 10 years ago. It is fairly simple and within a day of starting out you will be sure to find the person you were looking for. It is however necessary to understand and use the different services and techniques together to get a complete result.

Top Five Tips For Starting A Virtual Business

Are you a virtual worker or thinking of becoming one? If you are, you're not alone. There's been a rise in virtual workers of 800 percent in just the past five years (Nemertes Research 2005). A big reason for this dramatic increase is that it's a great way to start a company, especially if you can work from a home office or out in the field.

With that in mind, a team of experts at Hewlett-Packard came up with these five tips on how to successfully operate a business from your home.

Tip #1: Make sure your business can operate "virtually." Are you meeting with contacts at your place of business or theirs? Do you spend most of your time outside the office?

• Good candidates for a virtual business include architects, interior designers, homebuilders, computer professionals, accountants and other service professionals whose work is actually conducted in other people's homes or businesses-ranging from cleaning services to home repair.

Tip #2: Consider your personality. Are you a self-starter or do you need inspiration from others to get things done? Do you prefer quiet time to work or do you thrive around other people who can provide reinforcement and support? Are your management skills suited for a phone-based relationship with your remote team?

Tip #3: Hire the right people. Do you have trustworthy employees who can get the job done, even if they are not physically in the same office? How much of their work is actually done outside the office? Do you have access to a mature talent pool of potential employees if you are just starting out or planning to expand?

Tip #4: Leverage technology. Go wireless and take security to heart. Do you have the technology in place to support a virtual business or a good technology advisor who can help wire your business for success? Have you considered streamlining your office with an all-in-one fax-printer-copier, notebooks, PDAs and a wireless LAN network? Fight security threats with anti-virus, vulnerability and business protection solutions to protect your data and secure your networked PCs. For added security, think about connecting through a wireless virtual private network (VPN) and watch your productivity expand. Did you know that with Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) you can place a call anywhere in the world from an Internet connection without incurring long-distance fees? Even away from the home office, your employees can tap into WiFi networks at Internet cafes. Thanks to technology, many virtual companies have the face of a traditional company-yet operate with lower overhead and greater flexibility to stay competitive.

Tip #5: Create an online storefront and take advantage of e-commerce. An online presence can give your business the appearance of a traditional brick-and-mortar company. Small companies can grow into larger companies with an effective virtual business strategy.

Testing Your Google Adwords Search Engine Ads

I’m not sure why, but many of my clients who place pay-per-click search engine ads like those on Google or Yahoo become obsessed with finding the best keywords and totally neglect other factors in creating a profitable search engine advertising campaign. Often they install so complicated a keyword empire that they can’t psychologically manage any other changes and leave their campaign running in such a way that it costs them way more than necessary.

Don’t let this happen to you! Keep your advertising costs down and your momentum moving toward profitability by following these guidelines for prudent, manageable testing.

1. Compile a small collection of keywords (key phrases, probably) to test for each grouping of ads – let’s say, up to ten. Likewise, before getting started, stockpile a number of different ads to test against each other – let’s say, three to eight ads.

2. Set up the campaign with two or three ads tested against each other for each set of keywords. Google lets you do this automatically. Simply create additional text ads and they’ll rotate them for you until you say otherwise. Google also shows you the click-through rate, cost per click and number of clicks for each ad.

3. You don’t usually need your ads to show up on top, so put in a bid per click that according to Google’s keyword traffic estimator puts you at about the #7 position – showing on the first page of results, but not at the top. Set your maximum spend per day rather high, however, which according to the experts tests better than the opposite.

4. When you have at least 100 clicks on your best performing ad, delete the poorest performing ad and insert another ad to test in its place. Keep testing three ads in rotation until you have a clear winner.

5. Then, when you’ve arrived at a better performing ad, begin fiddling with and adding and deleting keywords to your heart’s content.

6. Whenever you’re stuck on what else to do about your keywords, test other elements, always just one change at a time. For instance, try turning “content ads” on and off, changing your maximum bid, modifying your ad copy by changing a word at a time, reversing the order of words or lines, and so on.

While this advice may differ a bit from the mathematically correct procedures of testing, it’s easy for a novice to implement. Search engine advertising conveniently allows you to watch your results and adjust each campaign for optimal performance, so long as you have a system of testing that doesn’t let you feel overwhelmed.

How Copyright Protection Works

What does copyright protect?
Copyright is a type of intellectual property law, and it protects original works of authorship including dramatic, literary, artistic works and musical, and such as poetry, movies, novels, songs, computer software and architecture. Copyright does not protect ideas, facts, systems or methods of operation, though it may protect the way these things are expressed.

How can I copyright my website?
The original authorship that appears on a website may be protected by copyright. This includes artwork, writings, photographs and other forms of authorship protected by copyright. Actions for registering the contents of a website can be found in Copyright Registration for Online Works.

How about copyright and my domain name?
Copyright law does not protect domain names. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers that is a nonprofit organization that has understood the responsibility for domain name system management is administrating the assignation of domain names through recognized registers.

How about copyright to a slogan, logo, name or title?
Copyright does not protect titles, names, slogans or short phrases. In a few cases these things may be protected as trademarks. Get in touch with U.S. Patent & Trademark Office on phone 800-786-9199 for additional information. Nevertheless copyright protection may be obtainable for logo artwork that contains enough authorship.

Can I protect my ideas?
Copyright does not protect systems, concepts, ideas or methods of doing something. You may convey your ideas in writing or drawings and claim copyright in your explanation, but that copyright will not protect the idea itself as revealed in your written or artistic work.

Copyright protection and unpublished work.
Publication is not required for copyright protection. It can be done with unpublished work as well.

Architecture copyright protection?
Architectural work became subject matter to copyright protection on the 1.st of December 1990. The copyright law defines architectural work as “the design of a building embodied in any tangible medium of expression, including a building, drawings or architectural plans.” Copyright protection extends to any architectural work created on or after Dec. 1, 1990. Any architectural works that were incomplete and embodied in unpublished plans or drawings on that date and were constructed by December 31, 2002, are entitled to protection. Architectural designs embodied in buildings constructed prior to December 1, 1990, are not entitled for copyright protection. See Copyright Claims in Architectural Works

Road Runner Is Not A Bird

By this we mean people now search the internet for scientific data as well as a cooking recipe. Time Warner’s road runner is a timely addition to the list of cable service providers.

Dial up connections for the internet is now passé. They are slow and when we need to look in to something really fast, this delay can be very irritating.

Installation of technologically advanced anti virus software is the only answer to this persisting problem.

Road runner scans all attachments of emails with very advanced anti virus technology. They ensure that working online is safe, without disturbances. They have messaging service but road runner messenger is compatible only with AOL, CompuServe and Netscape.

How to Deal with Addiction

They say the first step to beating an addiction is to admit that you have a problem.

Dealing with someone who has a gambling addiction can be painful. They have a tendency to withdraw from family and loved ones, so what are you supposed to do when someone you care about has developed a gambling addiction.

There are several things you will need to do and some of them are very hard to do.

The first thing you have to do is to hide all your valuables, and if this person lives with you, then you need to keep them behind locked doors and if that is not possible then take them to a bank and lock them in a safety deposit box.

If this person is you child or your spouse then you need to limit there access to your money. In many circumstances people have spent their family's savings and kid's college funds. So if at all possible try to get that persons name of the accounts if it is not already too late, and cancel all their credit cards.

At some point you will have to confront them. When you do confront them it is important to not yell and do not get angry just tell them how what they are doing affects you. Make sure that all the persons close friends are there to help with this.

It is important that everyone take turns and tell the person how his gambling has affected their relationships, but in a non angry, caring manner. This will help the person realize that the people that care about him see something that maybe he does not and hopefully will take an honest look at his gambling.

Remember the goal of confronting someone is not to make them stop gambling, it is to help them recognize they have a gambling problem and to encourage them to seek professional help.

Some people recommend that you try to get your friend to go to a gamblers anonymous meeting, but I do not recommend this. Gamblers Anonymous is a great organization that truly helps those with gambling problems stay away from gambling, but before you are ready for this most people need one on one sessions with a psychologist or a counselor trained to deal with gambling addiction.

After all is said and done, you must be prepared because most of the time the gambler continues to gamble, maybe they will make a brief attempt to stop before starting again in secret.

With most addictions the person with the problem needs to hit what they call a "bottom". This is when the gambler has lost everything that really meant anything to them, such as family and friends, and it is only at this point many will see the problem and seek help.
If you know someone who is unwilling to admit their gambling problem I recommend that after you have tried your best to get this person to seek help if they do not, you may have to be prepared to leave them, remember at some point you have to abandon a sinking ship before you go down as well.

To find more information on gambling addiction search gamblers Anonymous and
Codependence websites.

ISP – Access Internet On Worldwide Basis

The full form of ISP is Internet Service Provider, meaning a company that provides access to the Internet. In exchange of a monthly fee, the service provider will provide you with a software package, username and password, and a phone number that you can access. Along with serving individuals, the ISP also serves large companies who provide a direct connection from the company’s network to the Internet. ISPs are also called IAPs [Internet Access Providers].

The best ISP of your needs

Finding the best ISP means finding the best Internet network that will best serve your needs and suit your purposes. Whether you want the ISP for your home or for your office, make sure that the service provider offers you with all facilities of the Internet.

The best ISP is one that offers software upgrades regularly and has been in business for a long time. You can decide for the best ISP by noting the number of email addresses that are available per account. If the number does not match the amount that you need, then that ISP is not the best one for you. If you have young children in your home, then the best ISP will be the one that offers blocking of websites that are unsuitable for children. You can get those special ISPs that offer children’s offerings like cartoons, games and movies.

The best ISP is also the one that offers SPAM blocker and virus protection for your email and computers. This will protect your computer from getting attacked by viruses that may be sent to you. SPAM blockers will help you to save time in reading your mails, as it will automatically block many of those irritating emails that can disturb you. Offering unlimited Internet usage is also the mark of best ISPs.

Another factor that decides the best ISP for you is price. The best ISP should be the one that connects quickly and loads websites and information instantly.

International ISP and global ISP

There are two ISP services available in all parts of the world. The global Internet service provider makes ISP available in 150 different countries of the world. This technology can be used in your PC, Mac, mobile devices and PDAs. They provide easy access and help to get dial-ups, broadbands, wi-fi, and satellite access. Their goal is to make Internet services possible everyday and at any place of the world. You are also benefited as concerns the billing system. The bill will come to you monthly by email, and details your usage as per date and time, the duration of the usage and the location in which it is used.

ISP is an easy step to lead your small or big business in the right direction.

Top Ten Internet Auction Shipping Tips

Here are some tips to help you with your Internet auction shipments.

1. Ship Small, Lightweight Products

The heavier and bulkier the product, the more it will cost to ship. Pick light items in preference to heavier items. Of course, downloadable e-books are the lightest product of all. On the other hand, if your customers want your heavy and bulky items badly enough, they should be willing to pay for the extra shipping charges.

2. Ship Nonphysical Products

Having to ship physical products means more work. You need to pack and label your products, calculate shipping charges, and arrange for the orders to be shipped. Again, electronic downloads eliminate the hassles of physical shipping. However, tangible goods seem to have a higher perceived value. That being the case, you won't want to eliminate physical products entirely as they can be real profit makers for you.

3. Drop Shipping

Another way to avoid some of the hassles of product fulfillment is drop shipping. There are suppliers who will ship one item at a time for you. You don`t have to stock any inventory. You simply pay your dropship supplier out of the money you receive from your auction sale. They will ship the product directly to your customer.

4. Recycle

If you receive bubble wrap, styrofoam peanuts, bubble bags, or appropriate cardboard boxes, you may be able to reuse them for your shipments.

5. Bulk Buying

If you do a lot of auctions, buy your packaging supplies in bulk to receive better pricing.

6. Free Shipping Supplies

Your post office or courier company may supply free shipping cartons for certain shipments.

7. Use Online Automated Tools

You can determine shipping charges from PayPal, the postal service and courier companies by visiting their websites and using the online automated shipping calculation tools. In many cases, you can even create prepaid shipping labels and then arrange for pickup or dropoff of your shipments.

8. Avoid Fragile Items

Obviously, fragile items need to be packed with more care than unbreakable items. Pick durable items in preference to delicate items to reduce damage claims.

9. Insure Valuable Shipments

If you can't afford the loss of a lost, stolen, or damaged product, be sure to insure your shipment. While you're at it, request a delivery confirmation, preferably with signature required.

10. Prepare Foreign Shipments Properly

Be sure to prepare the proper Customs Declaration for international shipments. Keep in mind that there are items you can't legally ship. Even your packing material should be considered. As an example, items shipped in a box labelled "liquor" or "munitions" might be delayed at Customs.

The Secret To Finding The Best Drop Shipping Or Wholesale Product

In order to run a successful eBay or online store business, you need a quality product.

But the one problem with trying to find a wholesale or dropshipping product is the prevalence of scams. As a result, many people risk getting ripped off by websites that offer bogus merchandise.

So before you go out and try to find a product at a wholesale discount, you should follow a few simple rules. When you are looking at a wholesale source, you should look for:

• A large selection of items that can be easily sold
• Companies that have full contact information listed on their website
• Websites that are updated at least once a week
• A refund policy if you are not satisfied with their listings

While you are researching different wholesale sources, you should decide on how you will be handling your merchandise. Basically you have to decide if you will purchase wholesale products upfront or arrange for a dropshipping agreement. Each choice has its own set of advantages or disadvantages. Let’s explore both choices…

When you purchase wholesale sources upfront, there are a few advantages. The best part is that you can have absolute control of your merchandise. You can avoid the risk of offering products that are not instock or available for shipping. In addition, with wholesale products you have a better chance of finding a wider selection of goods.

The disadvantage of purchasing wholesale sources is you have to spend money on merchandise that might not sell. So if you aren’t sure about a product, then it’s a risk to purchase goods.

With dropshipping there is a major advantage- you don’t have to make any upfront purchases. This is a great solution for people that don’t know what to should sell. All you have to do is offer your product. When it sells, you send an email to the drop shipping company and they will ship it for you

But as mentioned before, it is often difficult to find the perfect item to resell. So you might have a bit of difficulty discovering the an item that is in high demand and will have a dropshipping agreement.

Whichever solution you decide to pick, one of the best places to purchase is from World Wide Brands.

Created by eBay Radio Host Chris Malta, WorldWide Brands is considered by many to be the best source for discovering drop shipping and wholesale sources. The researchers at this site make every effort to discover legitimate wholesale sources.

In fact, this source is the only wholesale and dropshipping product that is officially certified by eBay.

Online Surveys: Cheap, Easy, Flexible Work

So are you looking for work? Do you want work that is cheap, easy, and about as flexible as it comes? Well take my advice right now and stop reading this so that you can go check out the wonderful income opportunities that are found quickly doing online surveys. If you are still reading this you obviously need more convincing and so that is what I will attempt to do in the next several paragraphs. That is tell you exactly what I mean by the words cheap, easy, and flexible.


When I say cheap I am talking mainly about costs that aren’t necessarily considered when choosing a job but are always a part of the job that can make or break its worth in terms of financial stability. The costs that I am talking about have to do with risk to the employee, time spent dealing with personalities rather than getting work done, startup costs for equipment, travel costs, clothing costs, time spent working that you are not getting paid for and on and on. Online surveys with respect to all of these things is about as cheap a job as you can find. There is virtually no risk to you—there will always be surveys to do online (at least I don’t see the internet going away very soon) and you will never be fired (after all you have an opinion and that is all you have to have). There is little startup cost (a computer and the internet, which if you are really hurting at first you can use for free at most libraries). No travel costs and the work is very portable. And sweatpants are pretty cheap aren’t they?


All you need is an opinion when you do online surveys for pay. That is about as easy as it gets right because opinions can’t be graded or evaluated and they can’t be wrong. You just need to think about how you feel about different things and that is not hard for most people. The other part is that you need to be able to read and right which you have already proven capable of by getting this far in this stupid article.


Already touched on this but let me expand. If you are awake you can go to work (only when you have to or feel like it). You can work 20 hrs two days per week if you want and have worked full time. You can work from your home or in sunny Cancun if that’s where you prefer to do online surveys. You might say well I would never be able to pull that off, but you would be surprised that you can make a great living as you get more efficient with your work. You can also use it to supplement other jobs or do it while you are going to school. Basically this is work that is there when you want it to be and never is a drag on your plans.

How to get your husband to cancel his weekly poker game

Over the past few years it always bothered me that my husband would go play poker with his friends every Friday night. Whenever I complained that it would be nice to spend time with my husband on Friday, he just complains that this is the only time he gets to be with his friends.

I decided I had to come up with a way to make him choose me over his poker buddies so I tried many different things, at first I tried by asking him to stay home so we could have sex all night. That worked a few times but then he caught on to what I was doing.

I also tried finding different events that he may want to go to like action movies, car shows and other things of that nature but there were not always things to do, so that was another failed attempt.

But after 6 months of trying I had just about given up, finally at my wits end I decided that maybe I could get real good fast I could challenge him to a game and if I won he had to stop going to his game, and if he won I would pay for him to go to Vegas I spent every spare moment I had reading everything I could find online about Texas Holdem. Eventually I decided to go online and practice at some Video Poker.

Eventually I started playing for real cash Online, and once or twice while he was at his game I would drive to one of the local casinos and play for a few hours in their poker rooms.

Finally I felt I was good enough to make the challenge. So one night I told him that I wanted him to stop going to his Friday night games and to stay home with me, as I had expected it started a big argument. I waited until he made his speech about working hard and needing some “guy” time.

So I felt this was my time to strike, I asked him if he would at least allow me to come and watch the game, to which he replied that players only as the rule and that since I did not know how to play I could not go.

So I said if he could do it how hard can it be that really got him going, so he then asked me if I wanted to make the game a little interesting with a little bet. Now I had exactly what I wanted.

I said if he won I would pay for him to go to Las Vegas alone, he did not know I had made some good money playing poker recently, and if I won he would give up his seat in his regular Friday night game.

He looked at me suspiciously at first and I thought he was not going to risk it but he said ok. He ran to the closet and grabbed his chips we each started of with $100 in chips and agreed the first one out is the loser.

Well in the end it was me that lost, but he was so excited at how good I was that he did stop going to his Friday night game, now every Friday night we go and play together at the casino. We have been doing this for 2 years now and our relationship has never been this good.

Sometimes it really is better to try to get interested in his hobby.

Linking From High Pagerank Sites The Easy Way

One of the components of getting traffic from the search engines is to have another site linking to you.

You want to get links from a site that is frequently visited by the search engine spiders. The spiders will crawl the site and find the link to your page.

To find sites that get visited by the spiders frequently, you can view the pagerank of the sites. I will not go into detail about how Google determines pagerank or even what pagerank is for brevity.

You can find the pagerank of a site by either installing the Google toolbar or visiting third party sites such as:

Sites are given pagerank between 0 and 10. A rule of thumb is that you'll want to get links from sites with a pagerank of at least 5. Those sites get visited by the search engine spiders at least once a day.

To get links from sites with pagerank of 5 you can send the webmaster a link exchange request, submit content for their sites or you can take the simple method as outlined below.

Ezinearticles.com is a site where people visit and submit their articles for other publishers to use as content on their sites. You can go there and sign up for free to submit your own articles.

If your articles are approved, then they'll be published on that site and you'll have a link to your sites. If you check the pagerank of http://Ezinearticles.com, you'll find that it's a pagerank 6 site.

Just recently, http://Ezinearticles.com has added a commenting feature where you can put comments about any article.

Here's how to comment on any of the more than 150k+ articles in http://EzineArticles.com's database:

1. Go to http://EzineArticles.com and find an article about something of personal or business interest you want to comment on.

2. Click on the "Comments" link directly under the TITLE of the article.

3. Add your Comment

4. Enter the CAPTCHA code to authenticate you are a human

5. Within a business day or so, your comment will be reviewed by a human editor that is part of their comment management team.

6. You will receive an email after your comment is approved.

Now you can get a link back to your site without having to write an article. Submitting a comment is only suggested if you simply want the spiders to crawl your sites. I still suggest writing and submitting your own articles for the full benefit of one way links to your site.

There are many sites that you can get links from without sending an email to the webmaster and waiting for a reply. You just have to keep your eyes open and be aware of each site's pagerank.

How to Win More From the

It may be for the excitement, it may be for a vacation but it is the dream of going home a big winner that keeps us going back to the casinos, but are there ways other then cheating that can help you take home more cash? The answer is yes.

Believe it or not gambling at on online casino is a great way to gain experience so that you can win some big money in the casinos.

May online casinos besides having games as low as 50 cents, also have practice rooms that are free. You are given some play money to make your bets, but no real money is exchanged.
These practice rooms are available for most of the different casino games like poker, blackjack, roulette and baccarat.

This is a great way to gain experience. Not only do you get to play, you also get the experience of playing against other people instead of a computer. This allows you to learn how to watch their betting habits to look for patterns. This may not be so important in a game like roulette or craps but in poker this is almost as important as the cards you are dealt.

These patters are called tells. A tell is when someone gives away their hand by an involuntary action.

Some common tells are the way players arrange their cards, or playing with their chips when they have a good hand, or rubbing their face when they are bluffing

In a practice poker room you also get the experience of learning how to watch your money, without losing your shirt when you make a mistake, which will happen at first.

On of the biggest problems with learning to gamble in a casino is that the dealer and the other players are not forgiving. By this I mean let’s say you are playing roulette, a first time player may not know that until all winnings are placed on the table you may not take your winnings. Getting a warning from the dealer the first time you play can be embarrassing and unnerving to a new player.

So by playing in an online casino at first you will learn the rules, procedures and the etiquette for playing in a land based casino.

If poker is your game it is a little different, most games depend on luck and all you really need to know if the basics, but poker is totally different because you are playing against other layers that know all this information already. when you feel confident enough then go to the casino and find the game you want to play and spend some time watching the other players. You want to find a table where all the players are less skilled then you. This will give you the edge, but make sure you watch carefully. Many times players will do things to make themselves look worse then they really are to give the other players a false confidence.

Then as you see yourself getting better and better you can move up to higher stakes tables and against better players.

Once you get confident and see your skills increase so will your bank account.

The Best Business Opportunity Ever

Long ago, in a land pretty far away, I happened upon a business opportunity. In fact, it was an amazing business opportunity….but I didn't even see it. I was looking for something else.

Just like in many other aspects of our lives, things are always right in front of our noses yet we're so busy trying to look around it to search for something we think we want.

Let me ask you this. Your job, what you do now for a living. Is this what you had envisioned for yourself so long ago? Are you out searching for a business opportunity, when there may just be one right under your nose?

The difficult part is, is that the perfect business opportunity never presents itself that way, does it? I mean, right now I am an internet marketer and absolutely loving it. I help design software to help solve people's problems. I provide business guidance and advice to those seeking my unique perspective after 14+ years in offline and online businesses.

But I didn't come to Romania to be an internet marketer.

I came here to build some software for one of our companies. The internet marketing business opportunity was there as just a tiny bud…and over the past couple years has blossomed into what it is now.

So, if you are out searching for a new business opportunity, you should really stop and focus on the small opportunities that are right there at your feet.

But, how do you recognize them?

· Is there anything right now that piques your interest?

· Is there something that is in a field that you think is enjoyable?

· Has someone mentioned a business opportunity that you considered but dismissed?

I could go on, but the point is, if you can, give those opportunities that come by some real thought. Maybe spend a little time engaged in them, to see if you find them enjoyable or not.

Now, if you are still wanting to pursue a different direction and are looking for another business opportunity…why not look inside your head?

The nice thing about humanity is; no two people are the same. Your experiences, what you know, what you've done. Your perspective is completely different than mine.

So, why not write about a passion of yours? Or write a story about an experience you've had and its outcome? No matter who you are or what you do, every single person has enough knowledge or creativity to write an eBook.

And, in writing an eBook, you don't have to come up with money to publish or distribute your book. It's really quite exciting! Now you can share your expertise with the world for just the small investment of your time!

So, even if you aren't feverishly searching for abusiness opportunity, realize that there are many of them all around…or inside…you. All you have to do is open your eyes and your mind.

Why Internet Marketing Is Essential For A New Business Website

Marketing is the lifeblood of any business. Marketing builds awareness. Awareness lets potential customers find out about your product or service. Just as with a bricks and mortar business, marketing is essential in order to let people know your business offer exists.

Although the World Wide Web can be thought of as a media channel where prospects will see your copy day after day, the truth is that unless you attract those prospects to your website first then your efforts are in vain.

The term 'World Wide Web' should really have a fourth word, 'Wilderness', because that's where any website begins and stays if no efforts are made to attract visitors.

Any business that builds a store, for example, must make efforts to attract custom in order to succeed. The very same principle applies online and just as in the offline world, the amount of benefits reaped is proportional to the amount of effort put in.

In order to maintain any kind of competitive advantage, sustained efforts must be made with a long term plan in mind.

Compared to traditional offline methods of marketing, one of the distinct advantages of marketing online is the speed at which new marketing strategies can be put to test. For example, a pay per click campaign could be launched and the results analysed all in a single day. Such campaigns can promote the smallest businesses amongst the largest industry relevant websites viewed by thousands of qualified prospects.

One of the greatest Internet marketing fallacies is those services offering automated submission to hundreds of search engines as an effective means of search engine promotion. When 80% of all search engine usage is carried out using the three largest search engines (Google, Yahoo! and MSN), the only others worth being included in are those that are highly relevant and/or localised. This means that automated submission services such as these can offer limited benefit and then only to those websites that don't already appear in a search engine's listings.

The effectiveness of these types of automated and unspecific services quickly becomes diluted when they are made readily available to all.

For an effective Internet marketing that delivers significant and measurable results, there is no substitute for a well-structured, customised approach making the best possible use of the technologies available.

Building a successful Internet business starts with building a website and continues with effective marketing.

Get Paid To Surf - The Next Big Thing

The latest concept for the internet entrepreneur is pay to surf. Do I mean you get paid to sit on your butt and surf web pages? Yes, absolutely! I know many people would think it impossible to get double digit returns on their money daily, but that is in fact what is promised by these sites.

How do they work? The concept is very simple. You establish an account with them and then start surfing. They display pages that others want advertised on a timer of anywhere from 15 to 60 seconds per ad. You can either look at them or go get a coffee, but after a certain number have displayed – you get paid!

Each pay to surf program has a time span that they hold on to your money. It may be 7 days, it could be 60 days, you decide what’s right for you. After that time period, they transfer your earnings to whatever service you use. Each program has a favored processor on the idea of Paypal – it’s hooked to your credit cards and/or bank account.

My advice is to investigate them thoroughly! A good sign is a corporation owner that is traceable and in the same country as you, or at least in a country that will hold them responsible. You should look at the actual payout percentages, and the number of participants. The Alexa ranking of a page is also a good indication if they have as many participants as they claim.

Many of the pay to surf programs are affiliate based as well and you can get a percentage of the funds that people you refer put in. Be sure you know what qualifies you for the referral bonus and how many levels deep you get paid. Even one level can be a whole lot of money if you refer serious people!

Look for some kind of track record, meaning that they have been in business for more than a week. This is a fairly new concept to the mainstream internet, but there are some companies that have been in business for several months, maybe some for a year, but I haven’t seen any yet.

As with any new concept – especially one that pays out at that level – buyer beware! Obviously, this is a high risk enterprise, but my attitude is that if it crashes and burns in three months, at least I will have made back MUCH more than my initial investment.

I would definitely like to hear good and bad about these programs. They are certainly going to get a lot bigger before they go away. The Internet certainly had its detractors in the beginning and there was also the dot-bomb situation of 2001, but it doesn’t mean that there won’t be a lot of these pay to surf site around for a long time. I’m diving in!

How To Have Your Own Online Business

So you've decided to have an online business. Before you start having those big cash flow dreams, stop and get some tips for having an online business. There are many internet information resources for doing this sort of thing. However, the basic tips for an online business are very close to those of a traditional business. Here are some basics:

• Write a business plan and revise that plan periodically. Your business plan should be thought of as a living document. As with any business, you will initially find out what works and what does not work and will have to change your plan accordingly.

• Be very careful about buying webspace and pre-packaged website templates for your business (the “we will build your website” people). You'll find that down the road it will be difficult to change the site plus get source code to it. You are better off outsourcing the web design with a freelancer and purchasing your own domain and installing the site yourself.

• Make sure you follow all security measures when running a site that accepts credit cards for purchases.

• If you expect to receive a lot of phone calls, you may want to consider hiring an answering service.

• Run your online business like a business. You will need to discipline yourself with working hours to take care of all offsite matters because you will have them. A lot of people make the mistake of treating their internet business merely as a website, which can be very detrimental because running an online business requires an approach that you would have with an offline business.

• Your marketing plan needs to include search engine optimization (SEO). This is important because you want your site to rank in the top 10 of search engine query results. You would be wise to study SEO techniques or hire the services of a SEO consultant.

• Some other marketing ideas include posting your web address on the back windshield of your vehicle or coordinating with other websites to include a backlink to your site. Word of mouth is always one of the best tools for advertising your site. With the advent of Google Adword, Overture and other similar advertising, it is possible to drive targeted traffic to your site by finding keywords that have very low bids. You will be able to measure your conversion ratio of such traffic with sales in realtime.

Customer service is even more critical as customers do not “see” you and building trust with them is a little harder. Performance builds trust.

Investigations On The Internet.

How many people realize how much of their privacy is not really private? How many people are unaware that they are being watched closely? Well there is no concrete number but it is certainly many many more than you would think. There are more spies around you than you think doing investigations on you right and left that you are completely oblivious to. The thing is that they come in the form of everyday things that people just accept as a nuisance.

So what are the things that people use to do investigations into your personal life? Well lets start with your monthly bills for examples. First your phone bill. You didn’t maybe think about it but people have access to the people you call, the amount of time you spend talking to certain people or places of business and where you make the calls from. In fact with the advent of cellular phones that receive and send out digital signals to satellites you can be placed in a certain place at a certain time with the information that the phone companies have. Scary huh? Kind of remind you of enemy of the state?

Well how about credit cards? You think about what you spend your money on and if you would want anyone knowing how you spend your money? Well they do! You are a name and a number in their records that is attached to every charge that you have made, what you bought, in what quantity, how much you spent, and where you bought it. Another way to pinpoint where you are and when. You can imagine how helpful this is to the officers of the law when they are carrying out their investigations. Hopefully this is not what concerns you but rather that your privacy is not as secure as you thought.

What about the internet? Well this is perhaps the least understood and the most vulnerable place to be for people. People have parts of their lives that they don’t want to be public knowledge and many if not most of them are heinous things but legitimate and upright yet sensitive things. More and more everyday people are computerizing their information including the sensitive stuff, and if its one your computer and you are connected to the internet than you are at risk. People left unprotected are basically an open book to whomever would have a advantage over you with that information. This is not only how you spend your money or where you hang out on the internet but also any health records, financial records, family records, etc.

So do yourself a favor and become aware and learn how to take steps against the invasion of your privacy via subversive and subtle techniques of investigation.

Will the Democrats be able to Reverse the Online Ban

Many people were hoping that if the Democrats won control of Congress they would reverse the online gambling ban, but experts doubt they will even try or that if they do that the will be successful.

Once the bill was passed and signed into law by the president, it became much harder to reverse the law.

The democrats would need to bring up the law and get it to a vote, then after the vote passed it needs to go to the president for his signature. The problem with this is that the current president is the one who signed the bill into law in the first place.

Another problem is because the gambling ban was attached to another bill, it means that to reverse the law the entire bill needs to be reversed, but the other part of the bill is for an increase in port security, so any congressmen who recommends reversing this law, will be going on record as trying to reverse the increase in port security.

Because of this trying to get the law reversed could ruin a congressman’s chances of ever getting elected to public office again for the rest of their lives.

It is more likely that it will have to wait till the end of George Bushes term in office and then get an amendment to the law that reverses only gambling ban part of the law.

So if you are on Online Gambling enthusiast and you were hoping that after the election the online gambling ban would just disappear I am sorry to say you were mistaken and that you are going to have to wait a little longer, but that does not mean you need to sit quietly by.

The key is to make sure that you are heard, write letters to congressmen, and attend protest rallies anything that will keep this issue in the front of the minds of the politicians so they know that just as the Republicans lost the house so can they.

The republicans used the online gambling ban to try to gain votes for them in the last weeks before the election, but it backfired on them and lost them more votes then it brought in.

Hopefully the Democrats will learn from the mistakes of the Republicans and will understand that banning something never works, and that it is only thru regulating the online gambling industry that will ensure that it is safe and honest to play and that no underage children manage to play.
Other wise I am sure that the Democrats will also see the wrath of the American voters when it comes time for the next elections.

The American people are tired of having the government controlling every aspect of their lives and I think this election may have made their point for them.

So if the question is will they try to reverse the law I am sure they will try, but how successful they will be is still up in the air, and no one can really know what the outcome will be.

Making Fast Money Online

When starting the journey of making money online try and be as active as possible in you own business.

Do and try more things often to see what works and what doesn’t. You might not succeed at first but persevere and don't get discouraged. It is all right to fail as long as you learn from it and just look at it as feedback. You will need to spend time and money to gain the experience you need.

Internet Business: How to Find the Best Home Internet Business

The first and most important rule to remember when you are selecting the best Internet business idea is the one that works for you. Often times the best Internet business, idea you can come up with is one that you will have fun doing.

A founder who has enthusiasm will often help a business thrive and survive far beyond other companies in the same field. However, you cannot have enthusiasm to keep your business running if you don’t like your job.

In addition, modern technology and Internet has made it possible and easy for almost anybody to thrive with an Internet based business. As long as you love your idea and you understand it then you will have a thriving business.

The second rule you should remember when selecting the best home internet business is if there is a good marketing system in place. You need to have an advanced plan or idea that will help generate the best possible traffic to your business or subscribers to your email newsletter. While you run your business always, keep in mind that without traffic you don’t have a business no matter how good your idea is.

When selecting the best home internet business you should be on the look out for some advantages that only the best internet business opportunities would have. These advantages may not look very important at first but they will eventually make the difference between early some spending money from your business opportunity and regularly taking home a six-figure check every month from your business opportunity without ever having to leave the house.

The best of the Internet business opportunities usually have a long and detailed section on affiliate information. Go to this section and check out the details. These details should provide you all the information you need to know how best to sell the Internet business opportunity. Having a large affiliate section is important since you won’t make any money off your business without sales. The larger the affiliate section the easier it will be for you to make an income off your home internet business. Some of the best opportunities even have a list of key contacts.

It is also a good idea to go with Internet business opportunities that have a detailed and specific payment policy and preferably one that allows you to be paid for second and even third tier affiliate sales. This means you are paid for sub affiliates that you introduce to the business program. This way you can earn an income off both your direct sales and those of the ones who have joined the program. This can make a big difference in the size of the paycheck you receive.

Marriage Counseling: Using Games to Reduce Tension

Marriage is one of the most enjoyable but also one of the most painful experiences that people undergo. It carries with it the whiff of romance and eternal bliss, but sometimes you get a pack of thorns instead.

How Do You Ensure Your Marriage Is a Bed of Roses and not Thorns?
One of the major ingredients that a happy marriage needs is a willingness to compromise. But that is much more difficult than it seems. Everyone will agree that they need to compromise, but what happens when the issue is not a simple and tiny one? What then? Who Compromises first? I am sure you must have said to yourself at one point or another that enough is enough. You will no longer be the patsy. You are an independent person and your partner has crossed the line. Maybe.

Maybe your relationship has died and you are just beginning to realize it. Maybe your sentiments are more passionate than romantic. Maybe you no longer love her.

Stop being a fool!
What if I told you that the solution to your marital strife is not divorce. Am I mad?

Look around. How many divorces do you know? Plenty. Me too. But are they really happier off?

What is the first thing that a divorced person does? He or she goes out and starts looking for partners.

Isn't that strange? No. You say that everybody needs somebody to love. Maybe. I say that they had that somebody and they just let them go. So please stop being foolish.

Why not tackle your problems with a simple suggestion? A Game.

Games as a Peace Maker:
Playing brings out the child in us and causes us to express more than we normally would. We also release bottled up frustration and let go of mental thorns in our outbursts of joy and anguish as we win or lose. Games unite people together and therefore I suggest playing together but if you wish one can play against the other. The game turns into a battle but only this time, after its over, you will both feel refreshed from losing all that bottled up pain and anger.

Games to Pick From:
Try picking games that both of you like or at least somewhat active ones. You could even play hide and seek in the house or something else. If you do prefer playing cards, pick a game which does not go on for long and which requires some thinking like hearts, poker, bridge or rummy. Keep score and determine before hand that the loser has to do something for the winner. Chores is not a prize for the winner! If you lose you have to do something that that the other person wants for themselves like give them their favorite massage or cook them their favorite meal.

Games are a welcome ambrosia to love and will excite you as a couple to disregard all your frustrations and anger and deal only with the good. The anger and frustrations will not magically disappear, but now you can deal with them together calmly and in a good mood.

La Nueva Cara de James Bond

La reciente versión de James Bond "Casino Royale" ha traído al agente James Bond un nuevo actor que no solo ha cambiado su personalidad, pero también su actitud y ha traído un nuevo estilo sensual, frió y asesino al Agente.

El actor que lo protagoniza es Daniel Craig, quien nunca antes había aparecido en una James Bond, pero que sin embargo ha podido traerle al popular personaje una cara diferente a la usual. Esta vez James.

Bond no es tan simpático ni tan amistoso, es mas bien un chico malo que cuando se pone un objetivo es difícil detenerlo y lo hará a pesar de tener que lastimar o tener que matar a otros.

El actor se ha preparado para protagonizar a James Bond seriamente haciendo ejercicio y formando su cuerpo de una increíble manera. Ha impactado a todas las espectadoras con su increíble figura(Especialmente en la escena en que sale del mar), y ha enamorado en escena a la actriz Eva Grin, quien después logra engañarlo a el.

Comparado a otros actores que protagonizaron a James Bond en el pasado, como Pierce Brosnan o Sean Connery , David logro sacarle al personaje algo que nunca había salido antes. Un carácter más egoísta, determinado, seguro y luchador que no duda un segundo de sus acciones.

Fue realmente sorprendente ver como en esta nueva versión de James Bond, el agente se desenvuelve en secuencias brillantes de máxima acción que nunca había habido en ningún otro James Bond. La diferencia entre este y otros Bond también es que el personaje es mucho mas real que en otros casos. Todavía cuenta con los lugares exóticos, los increíbles autos, mujeres hermosas pero sin el tono irreal que contaban otros James Bond.

Aquí sin duda James Bond es mucho más sadista, quien se convierte en un asesino de sangre fría con poca simpatía por los demás trayendo una actitud dura y audaz la cual David Craig la personifica excelente.

También es importante mencionar el juego de poquer del final en el Casino Royale, igual de entretenido que los momentos de acción del principio de la película.

La actuación de la actriz francesa Eva Grin también ha convertido a la chica Bond en alguien difícil de descifrar quien atrapa al agente desenvolviéndose en la trama con un final inesperado. Podrás ver al final de la película un lado de Bond que no piensas que existe en el, ni creías que verías durante toda la trama.

Además de todo lo mencionado previamente, no hay duda que este James Bond esta dedicado no solo a los hombres que buscan acción, autos espectaculares y chicas Bond deslumbrantes. Esta vez a las mujeres nos dieron al increíble David Craig quien es el centro de atracción de la película.

La película estrenada en 2006, dirigida por Martin Campbell ha logrado traer al querido personaje de Bond un estilo renovador, interesante, frió e indomable que sin ninguna duda te hará disfrutar de la pantalla grande.

Nascar Races: Hot Tips to Car Racing

What to Look For While Betting on NASCAR

Auto racing such as Formula One and other races such as the Indy 2000 are big hits internationally. Millions of fans crowd stadiums to watch the different cars race by. The screech of burning tires as they spin by you is an experience that very few forget.

NASCAR is one of the largest racing organizations in the USA. With millions of fans around the country, and some of the most expensive race cars and teams put together you can see how NASCAR and betting go together like peas in a pod. But today we are going to talk about the teams crews.

The great thing about NASCAR is that it is an individual sport and a team sport at the same time. So when we start talking about sports betting, or race betting, the options that we have are spread out and full of potential, although we are going to focus on the teams part today.

Now on any given day a NASCAR driver can come back from last place and win a long and tough race. Certain things must happen for a gambler to win his bet just like certain things must happen for a circumstance like this to take place. This is where the team comes into play.

Sports betting and betting on NASCAR is and around the clock job; the teams mechanics are working on the cars days in a row to get ready for the start time, changing fuel capacities, and tuning up the engines due to weather conditions as well as fitting the correct tires to the surface. A teams crew can make all the difference on race day whether that driver will win or lose. If the car is not running at full capacity due to some over looked object that needed tweaking, the driver may lose serious horsepower from his engine and lose valuable seconds here and there on the track.

Now again in NASCAR there is so much telemetry and science that go into these cars; that the teams will drive a car all the way to the finish line burning off fumes to maybe win the race, or have the race blown because the car ran out of fuel after the last turn. The amount of gas they carry in the car determines weight, how fast the car will move under certain conditions and for how long the car will travel without needing to refuel.

This is what can make betting on NASCAR races so interesting is the amount of variables and how they change minutely due to a change in air temperature or how the sun is beating down upon the asphalt or what wind speeds from which direction.

I hope that this article helps you understand better the ins and outs of car racing in general and NASCAR races in particular. If you are not a fan, try and visit one of the tracks while a race is in progress. It will astound you.

There are many things you can do, such as regularly clean your refrigerator and regularly check the food in there and also that you keep in the cupboards or anywhere else.

Bay leaves keep insects and other such lice away from food products. By placing bay leaves inside the packets, we ensure that insects do not reside there. But please remember to change the bay leaves once every three months.

3) Place half a potato in the refrigerator.
If there is any kind of bad smell from food or cooked items, the half potato will absorb it. To make sure that this works, remember to exchange the potato every three days.

4) Store eggs with the pointed side down.

Tomatoes give out gases that cause cucumbers to rot faster so make sure that you keep these two apart.

7) Do not store apples along with the rest of the fruits and vegetables.
Apples give out certain gases that cause fruits and vegetables to rot.
