How to get traffic to your website?

 
Many webmasters struggle getting traffic to their website. Are you one of them? Well most likely you are if you are reading this article. Pay very careful attention to this article because many people don’t take some of these steps seriously but they can make a big difference.
The first one of all the ways you can get traffic to your website is SEO.


Search Engine Optimization, making your website friendly to search engines so you can rank better and get more visitors to your website. This step is a good step to start with if you know what you are doing. If not, try to read article on SEO and get the concept of it because it’s all about ranking better in search engines to get more traffic.
Link building is another important point these days.


Google especially gives so much importance to this fact than any other search engine. If you have strong backlinks you are going to be the one that is most likely to be found on google search results.


If you have a marketing website, or your website is about a cause, you can use affiliate programs to gain traffic to your website. For example, you can promote your products on Google AdWords and target specific visitors to your website.


These are all the things a webmaster can do. Well, how about the beginners? Any beginner can do the above. But most of the webmasters forget to the following which a beginner is most likely to do. People miss these ways of getting traffic and they are not aware that they can actually get whole lot of traffic from these ways.





First one of these missed ways is sharing your link in a community website. Either if its youTube, Myspace or a random Forum website. Many people visits these websites and what you put there. Think of YouTube, you can see how many times a video has been viewed on the bottom of the video, if you share your website link in the description which YouTube allows you to do, you can advertise your website that many views.


Sometimes these views go into millions. Many people go to a froum to find what they want, ask questions and for a community. For example one might go to a Forum website about Hamsters and ask What hamsters eat? You can reply to that post from an article in your website and show your website as a source. Now if someone writes “What Hamster’s eat?” in Google that froum will show up and in the forum your website will be showned source. This ways are also a good way to build backlinks.




Another way professionals often forget is the web directories. They think nobody visits them and so on. But they are mistaken. Many people try to find what exactly they want on the internet and yes they do visit directories. Even if they don’t it is a good way to gain backlinks.

Prey







Open source anti-theft solution for laptop

Prey is an ultra awesome open source freeware program which you can use to track and recover your stolen laptop or mobile phone. You set it up by installing a tiny agent on your computer or phone, and if your device is stolen, you can send it a secret signal which wakes up the software, to start monitoring via GPS or WiFi signal triangulation.


Prey2


The program will also take a snapshot of the thief via the webcam, grab a screenshot of their activities on your machine, lockdown the PC or even hide your email service and passwords so they can’t get in. You can track your machine via the Prey dashboard in your free online account, or set up your own private system, it’s up to you. It’s a very comprehensive feature set, made all the more potent by the fact that it’s fully open source.


As with most of this type of security software, you’re reliant on the fact that the villain doesn’t just format or rip out your hard disk when they get back to their evil lair, but that said, at least this is better than nothing. You get some sort of fighting chance of getting your machine back, which is good. You activate the mobile phone agent by sending an SMS message, or set it to autoactivate if the SIM card is changed.



It’s available for Mac, PC and Linux and for Android handsets only at the moment, but there are plans to include more phone platforms later. The free account plan (where you store your devices and reports) gives you up to 3 devices, if you need more you’ll either have to set up your own monitoring dashboard or stump up a little cash for the Pro account. Excellent!


Prey lets you keep track of your phone or laptop at all times, and will help you find it if it ever gets lost or stolen. It’s lightweight, open source software, and free for anyone to use. And it just works.

Make money clicking ads with Neobux






Neobux is a pay-per-click membership site run by an internet marketer name Rezk that pays members to click on advertiser links and visit their websites for a certain length of time. Advertisers buy clicks to their websites and program members earn a share of the revenue when they visit these websites. There is also a referral system in place so members can build downlines and earn from them.



The Neobux program is one of many of these types of programs on the internet today. The way you make money as a member of this site is very simple. You click on links, visit advertiser websites, stay on them for a certain period of time, and you earn money for it. You refer others to the program, and you earn money when they click on websites too.



The amount of money that you earn from Neobux by clicking on one advertiser link and visiting the site is not much. The pay that you do get depends on your level of membership. There is a free level and a golden level. At the free level, you make $.01 to view a site for a standard period of time, and $.015 for viewing a site for an extended period of time. How long the period of time is depends on what the advertiser pays for. At the golden level the pay for those are $.01 and $.02 respectively. Neobux Golden members also earn more for their referrals’ clicks than free members do. You can actually rent referrals each month from the site if you like, which could possibly increase your earnings.



A lot of these types of programs get many complaints, but that doesn't seem to be the case with Neobux. Most reports are that the company does indeed pay, and they pay in a timely manner. Nobody is claiming to get a lot of money from it, but that’s not surprising. Ambitious members could conceivably make some extra spending money each month, which for some is a plus.

Advertlets Scam at Anak Melayu Boleh blog and 2 years ago,I nearly put this Advertlets ads on my blog.Wow,two years of unpaid cashouts and nearly RM1000 worth of money there still unpaid to the admin of Anak Melayu Boleh Blog.

What is it with this ad-oriented company?They generate hundreds K ringgits even millions but they failed to paid the carrier of thing that they advertise?

Quoting Anak Melayu Boleh post :


'Well here’s a breakdown of my bad experience with them.

  1. 21st July 2008 – Cashout $241.80.
  2. Few months later – Status still ‘processing’.
  3. Shortly after – Tried contacted support staff.
  4. Few weeks later – No response from Advertlets.
  5. 2nd March 2009 – Cashing out again, $156.07.
  6. Few months later – Status even worse, ‘Unpaid’, it’s not even processed.
  7. Shortly after – Tried contacted support staff
  8. Few weeks later – No response from Advertlets.
  9. 14th March 2010 – I was told if I blogged about Advertlets payment issues, they would pay up.
  10. Few weeks later – Still no response from Advertlets.
  11. 20th April 2010 – I decided to for one last time contacted their BRAND NEW Advertlets ticket support. I marked it as ‘critical’.
  12. As of today – I wasn’t surprised, still no response from Advertlets.

I’ve been patience, and waited this long. I’ve even defended Advertlets, spoke good things, and even recommended other bloggers to them previously.

But no more, you’ve messed around with the wrong Uncle. I’ll make it my mission in life to expose Advertlets for the scammers that they are, until they respond, apologise and pay me.

So now I’m dealing with the current issue with how I know best, the Internet. Using my SEO skillz, I’ll try to rank high on every Advertlets keywords out there, and linked them to articles of my bad experience with Advertlets.'

How I fixed the YLOD myself!

Last week, I unfortunately suffered the Yellow Light of Death. I know, it is really the worst thing a PS3 can encounter. I went through YouTube and searched for PS3 fixes there, they didn’t help me! But I did come across a helpful guide on the net PS3LightFix
It had:

The benefits of this were obvious:

And I am glad to say my PS3 is up and running again!

MeeGo (Netbook Operating System)




MeeGo is an open source, Linux operating system based on Moblin (by Intel) and Maemo (by Nokia). Its aim is to merge the efforts of Intel on Moblin and of Nokia on Maemo into one project. It is hosted by the Linux Foundation. According to Intel, MeeGo was developed because Microsoft did not offer comprehensive Windows 7 support for the Atom processor.







MeeGo is intended to run on a variety of hardware platforms including handhelds, in-car devices, netbooks and televisions.All platforms share the MeeGo core, with different “User Experience” (“UX”) layers for each type of device.


MeeGo provides support for both ARM and Intel x86 processors with SSSE3 enabled [6] and uses btrfs as the default file system.



MeeGo for netbooks comes in two versions: one with Google Chrome (closed source) and one with Chromium (open source). For a media player, MeeGo comes with Banshee 1.0 for MeeGo (which has just been released):

(Banshee 1.0 for MeeGo)



As an email client, MeeGo is using Evolution Express, a new Evolution interface especially designed for small screens:

(Evolution Express)



For VoIP, IM, and presence functionality, MeeGo uses Telepathy. Telepathy is a D-Bus based framework that unifies all supported protocols of real time communication, including, but not limited to, instant messaging, IRC, voice and video over IP, and cellular calls.

Other useful technical info: MeeGo uses BTRFS as the default filesystem (but you can use a different filesystem if you want), PackageKit for package management, Tracker for indexing, meta-data extraction, and search capabilities for a variety of data types, including media files, and documents and PulseAudio for the sound.

ConnMan (which is sponsored by both Intel and Nokia) is used for connection management - application which Ubuntu will also use for its 10.10 Netbook Edition, as well as Telephony APIs (oFono) for telephony services.


Users who want to download it themselves can obtain the disk image from the MeeGo website. For additional details, see the official release announcement and release notes.

Evolution of Windows Operating System









Windows was the first commercially available GUI Operating System from Microsoft founded by Bill Gates. In 1983 Microsoft announced the development of Windows, a graphical user interface (GUI) for its own operating system (MS-DOS), which had shipped for IBM PC and compatible computers since 1981. After 4 years in 1985 Microsoft released Windows 1.0 Since then, Microsoft has shipped many versions of Windows, and the product line has changed from a GUI product to a modern operating system.the most successful operating system from the house of Microsoft was Windows XP. The latest buzz is Windows 7 which is in Beta testing now.lets take a look at Microsoft Windows from version 1.0 to windows 7. The information & Pictures are collected from various sources like Wikipedia, Microsoft, Google etc.

Windows 1.0

Windows 1.0 was a 16-bit graphical operating environment that was released on 20 November 1985. Windows 1.0 was the first ever commercially available GUI Operating System.Windows 1.0 was only available on floppy disks. The user had to have DOS to install.Windows 1.0 offers limited multitasking of existing MS-DOS programs and concentrates.The system requirements for Windows 1.0 constituted CGA/Hercules/EGA (listed as “Monochrome or color monitor”), MS-DOS 3.1, 384K RAM (512KB recommended), and 2 double-sided disk drives or a hard drive.Windows 1.0 runs a shell program known as MS-DOS Executive. Other supplied programs are Calculator, Calendar, Cardfile, Clipboard viewer, Clock, Control Panel, Notepad, Paint,Reversi, Terminal, and Write.








Windows 2.0

Windows 2.0 was a 16-bit Microsoft Windows graphical user interface-based operating environment that superseded Windows 1.0. Windows 2.0 was supplemented by Windows/286 and Windows/386 in 1988.Windows 2.0 was packaged with AT&T Computers as test software for many educational institutions. This variation of Windows 2.0 has “plug ‘n’ play” capabilities.Windows 2.0 allowed application windows to overlap each other, unlike its predecessor Windows 1.0, which could only display tiled windows. Windows 2.0 also introduced more sophisticated keyboard-shortcuts and the terminology of “Minimize” and “Maximize”, as opposed to “Iconize” and “Zoom” in Windows 1.0.











Windows 3.0

Windows 3.0 is the third major release of Microsoft Windows, and was released on 22 May 1990. It became the first widely successful version of Windows and a powerful rival to Apple Macintosh and the Commodore Amiga on the GUI front. It was succeeded by Windows 3.1.Windows 3.0 includes a Protected/Enhanced mode which allows Windows applications to use more memory in a more painless manner than their DOS counterparts could. It can run in any of Real, Standard, or 386 Enhanced modes, and is compatible with any Intel processor from the 8086/8088 up to 80286 and 80386.












Windows 3.1X

Windows 3.1X series was the successor of windows 3.0, Windows 3.1 was released in March 1992.Windows 3.1x contains a color scheme named Hotdog Stand. This color scheme contains bright hues of red, yellow and black. The color scheme was designed to help people with some degree of color blindness see text/graphics on the screen easier.Windows for Workgroups 3.1 (originally codenamed Winball and later Sparta), released in October 1992, features native networking support. Windows for Workgroups 3.1 is an extended version of Windows 3.1 which comes with SMB file sharing support via the NetBIOS based NBF and/or IPX network transport protocols.












Windows NT 3.1

Windows NT 3.1 is the first release of Microsoft’s Windows NT line of server and business desktop operating systems, and was released to manufacturing on 27 July 1993. Two editions of NT 3.1 were made available, Windows NT 3.1 and Windows NT Advanced Server.Windows NT provided a 16-bit compatibility subsystem, called “Windows on Windows” (aka WOW), which allowed most Windows 3.x applications to run unmodified on NT. Applications which made direct access to hardware, or depended on DOS-level drivers, were not supported.NT also introduced Win32, a 32-bit implementation of the Windows API. This permitted many 16-bit Windows applications to be recompiled for the system with minimal changes. Win32 also allowed the growing body of 16-bit Windows programmers to leverage their skills on the new system










Windows 95

Windows 95 was released on August 24, 1995 by Microsoft.Windows 95 was intended to integrate Microsoft’s formerly separate MS-DOS and Windows products and includes an enhanced version of DOS, often referred to as MS-DOS 7.0.

The release of Windows 98 was preceded by a notable press demonstration at Comdex in April 1998. Microsoft CEO Bill Gates was highlighting the operating system’s ease of use and enhanced support for Plug and Play (PnP). However, when presentation assistant Chris Capossela plugged a scanner in and attempted to install it, the operating system crashed, displaying a Blue Screen of Death.

Released on 17 February, 2000.Four editions of Windows 2000 were released: Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and Datacenter Server.Additionally, Microsoft sold Windows 2000 Advanced Server Limited Edition and Windows 2000 Datacenter Server Limited Edition, which were released in 2001 and run on 64-bit Intel Itanium microprocessors.Microsoft marketed Windows 2000 as the most secure Windows version ever, but it became the target of a number of high-profile virus attacks such as Code Red and Nimda. Almost nine years after its release, it continues to receive patches for security vulnerabilities nearly every month.

Windows 7 (formerly codenamed Blackcomb and Vienna) is the next release of Microsoft Windows, an operating system produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, Tablet PCs, netbooks and media center PCs.Microsoft released beta version of Windows 7 which gets a very heavy response.Unlike its predecessor, Windows 7 is intended to be an incremental upgrade to Vista, with the goal of being fully compatible with device drivers, applications, and hardware which Windows Vista is already compatible with.Presentations given by the company in 2008 have focused on multi-touch support, a redesigned Windows Shell with a new taskbar, a home networking system called HomeGroup,and performance improvements. Some applications that have been included with prior releases of Microsoft Windows, most notably Windows Movie Maker, and Windows Photo Gallery, are no longer included with the operating system; they are instead offered separately (free of charge) as part of the Windows Live Essentials suite.
