A sequel from our previous article - Evergreen Niche? Best Money Making Niche. Many people might say that I am the “black station”, “the negative reviewer”, “the mean person”, etc... well to some extends I am, because I don't tolerate bullshit and understatements.

Security Tips for Bloggers

A blog can easily be hacked if the proper security measures are not taken. Depending on what platform a blog is hosted on might make it more susceptible to attack.

The good news is that there are plenty of security steps a blogger can take to protect their site. Most of the tips are very basic and can be done by anyone. Other tips might require a little bit of coding know-how to make the necessary changes.

Keys to an Effective Online Marketing Strategy

Marketing has always been multi-faceted, but online marketing is one essential facet that has multiple contexts of its own. You understand the value of keywords and SEO, but are you maximizing as many online contexts as possible to make your business visible to the masses? Tackle one of the following keys at your next marketing team meeting. Blogs Customers in the 21st century value authenticity. Reality television reminds us that some aspects of human nature are universal. Weblogs began as online diaries. Imagine your diary being available for the entire world to read! It sounds like the theme of nightmares, but it caught on. People began to read blog posts and happily respond with, "Me, too. I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one." That same authenticity is desired from business. A blog allows your company to tell its story to current and potential clients. Visitors can learn about your staff, your goals, your charitable work, and your products. More than a fluffy venue for adding content, blogs give visitors a glimpse into the personhood of your company.

Getting started on WordPress

Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr, Posterous… with so many blogging platforms to select from, it can be hard to pick, but it doesn't have to be hard to get started if you go with the content management of choice of many top websites: WordPress. It's search engine-friendly, easy to use, highly customizable and the host of an active network and community of bloggers. You've made an excellent choice… but now what? Follow these tips to get started and save yourself some headaches when learning how to navigate the world of WordPress. Plan Decide which features you need from WordPress before starting. The needs of a retailer and a personal blogger using WordPress vary greatly, and you need to adjust your strategy accordingly. If you want a custom domain name, you'll save yourself the trouble of playing with DNS controls and the frustration of limited functions if you register directly through WordPress. Registering a .com, .net or .org address starts at $18 per year, which equals a mere $1.50 per month. You'll save money by registering directly on WordPress instead of purchasing a domain elsewhere ($10/year and up) and then mapping it to WordPress ($13/year), in addition to gaining access to fully-customizable themes,...

How To Infuse Fresh Life Into Your Blog

We’re almost in the middle of a brand new year, but the best months are still ahead of us. Are you still doing what you did in 2011 to get the light to shine on your blog? It’s not too late to re-evaluate your blog’s performance, its looks and other parameters based on recent changes in the blogosphere. Here’s how to infuse fresh life into your blog in 2012. Optimize Your Email List And Newsletters 1. Weed The Garden Over time, your email list becomes stagnant and stale, with unresponsive, deadweight subscribers. Check your email open rates and remove all those subscribers who haven’t opened your newsletters in a long time. Spam engines are more likely to mark your Id as spam if you have a high unopened email rate. 2. Clean Up Your Newsletter’s Html While you’re at it, it makes sense to re-evaluate your HTML as well. If your HTML is sloppy, you’ll be triggering spam filters without knowing it. Plus, even if your email newsletter looks good to you, bad HTML coding will screw up its appearance in the target inbox. All of these things will only affect your reputation negatively. 3. Update Your Spam Checker If you’ve...

Adding Photos to Blog Posts Increases the Experience

With so many people launching blogs on a regular basis, it can be on the difficult side to get people to your site, get them to read your article and potentially engage with what you said. There are only so many sports blogs that can be launched before people hit the ceiling of how much news they can devour. With that in mind, it becomes your problem and your responsibility to try and encourage engagement on the blog and make the user experience just a little bit better. One of the best ways to do that—other than providing incredible content obviously—is to add images and photographs to your blog posts. One or two pictures in each of your blog posts can help get the reader going from the headline to the first paragraph and then hopefully, at that point, you'll get them through to the rest. The problem with getting images for blog posts is finding them. There are the free methods in which you go to Wikipedia or Flickr and hope to find something that works. These are okay, but there are some limitations. First, with Wikipedia, you get what you get. If you write about sports and the player...

10 Easy Proofreading Methods to Help Ensure Your Blog Posts are Flawless

Even the most experienced writers proofread their work before publishing it. The same should be true for blog posts. If elements of your posts are grammatically incorrect or filled with misspellings, no one will consistently want to read your blog. The following are 10 easy proofreading methods to help ensure your blog posts are flawless: Give yourself some distance. Instead of proofreading your posts immediately after you complete them, take some time to do something else. If you can put some physical distance between you and your work, such as walking away from your computer, that's even better. Separating yourself from your work will allow you to examine your work with fresh eyes when you return. Read your work out loud. Often, your ears will hear mistakes that your eyes miss. Hearing your work read out loud can help you identify awkward phrases as well as words you may have accidentally repeated. When in doubt, check it out. Are you unsure if it's “Queen's English” or “King's English” (both are correct, by the way, depending on who was in power at the time)? Instead of guessing, use the power of the Internet and double-check if phrases, rules of English, sayings, etc. are correct when...
