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.

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.


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

I stumbled on a post titled
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.'

Well,they really messed with the wrong man eh.Many other cases were blogged,and I hope we all take note of new company that come out and using those cool slogans meh.

Fix YLOD (Yellow Lights of Death)

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:
· Videos
· Guides
· One-on-one help

The benefits of this were obvious:
· Easy and safe way to fix the PS3
· I fixed my PS3 in an hour and a half
· I saved myself $150 or RM450 (Sony charges for repairs)

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

P/S : I saved a sample of their guide in PDF format.
