Always Be Within Arm’s Reach of Content Writing

Aug 26, 11

Actual writing is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration. But when it comes to wanting to write on a topic that fascinates you, those percentages are normally reversed. Simply put, it’s difficult to go from one to the other without it being immediate. You have to trap yourself to the point where your inspiration can’t help but give way to that perspiration. Otherwise, you’ll do way more “wanting to write” than actual writing.

The Google+ and +1 great impact on SEO

Jul 06, 11 google+1

Google love positive vibes (pun intended) that’s why the search giant announced recently the Google+ and +1. This are two new services that my fellow bloggers should watch out.

google+1

First let us talk about the +1 which basically a button which they substitute to “promote” icon we first saw on Google’s search results. This time Google makes it broader or shall we say common by bringing it to website level. The impact we think could be directly to the search results. Google says that “the +1 button is shorthand for “this is pretty cool” or “you should check this out.” Click +1 to publicly give something your stamp of approval. Your +1′s can help friends, contacts, and others on the web find the best stuff when they search.” So in short, the more +1 hits can make your site on top that obviously influencing greatly on SEO.

I have already cited this on techgeeze.com that even Mark Zuckerburg was checking the Google+. So you’ll probably guess that it’s something related to Facebook. Yes, Google is trying to come up with a “real social network” from their online services and properties. This can be later evolve to what is Facebook right now. It can be a tool on generating massive amount of followers or visitors if properly utilized, thus Google might integrate the +1 here so you’ll be rounding out the outcome not only down to website but to social network level.

What about the product itself? Google dubs Google+ as a “project” rather than a product, stressing it’s part of making Google itself more social rather than being a standalone social network to take on Facebook. “It’s ‘Plus’ because it takes products from Google and makes them better and ‘project’ because it’s an ongoing set of products,” said Vic Gundotra, the senior vice president who oversees Google’s social products.

From here maybe Facebook days might be numbered, knowing who holds the internet right now. With proper online marketing you’ll see what Google can do ahead.

Why Ad Blocking is devastating to every sites; say no to Safari 5

Why Ad Blocking is devastating to every sites; say no to Safari 5
As a blogger for two years, this issue takes my attention seriously, mainly I’m afraid of looking into this loosing situation in a long run, not just for my own good but for all bloggers and ad-driven sites. First, the Safari 5 ad-blocking mechanism specifically and the ad-blocking in the whole sense for internet publishers.
Here is some of the reading materials for your perusal:
Here is some points in my opinion for the case of the Safari 5 browser ad-block features.
The new Safari 5 features will sure to clean up unnecessary ads on the site you will visit, but though it takes a small 5% on the browser market but in the long run this could turn up into a positive ratio considering the demands Apple is getting on its products now.
The iAds is Apples new advertising platform for mobile browsing, this most likely a conspiracy noted by reference to some of the article I noted above. The iAds will jive with the Safari ad-blocking mechanism in such a way it will block the ads in a website leaving the unblock-able ads serve by iAds platform. The assumption more profit for Apple. Most likely too an app for blocking the iAds is sure to be developed but the big question is if this will be approved by Apple, 99% is sure for NO.
If these ad-blocker from Safari will become a big hit on the mobile browsing sure enough that iPhone is leading if I’m not mistaken for more or less 54% of mobile browsing, this will sure to press up other known browser like the IE, Mozilla Firefox and most likely Chrome to plug their own ad-blocker now for the world wide web.
Now I wont be bringing more on the argument on how in the whole this will affect ad-driven websites, most of the answer lies on this article:
After you read everything, I want to here a serious answer from you specially for my fellow bloggers and a whole lot more for my readers.
