What Bing Tells Us About Keyword Research And Link Building

Posted on July 31, 2011 
Filed Under SEO | 4 Comments

Bing Webmaster Blog has recently published an article on the topic of keyword research where they also mention other SEO topics and mention how to go about link building.

Since all search engines try to avoid manipulation of their rankings they also avoid telling you exactly what you need to do – but they do give good hints which you need to interpret correctly.

I’ve taken some of the more interesting and important hints from the above article and tried to interpret them (when needed) in my own way. Read more

Design Contest Websites – Best Way To Outsource Design?

Posted on July 6, 2011 
Filed Under Recommended | 2 Comments

In my quest to find the best way to outsource design, I’ve recently tried a few design contest websites.

The difference and the key advantage of design contest websites and the usual outsourcing through freelancer.com or elance.com is that you get multiple designs to choose from.

When you’re using the freelancer, you choose one of the providers based on their portfolio – but you cannot really know if they will »guess« what you had in mind for your site design.

With a design contest website, you’ll get multiple designs (logo, website, wordpress theme, …) and you can ask every provider to tweak their design until you like it or you can simply ignore and dismiss the ones you don’t like and eventually choose the best one. Read more

How To Deal With The Constant Change And Problems Of Internet – And Life

Posted on June 2, 2011 
Filed Under Earn money online | 10 Comments

As we all know – the only thing that’s constant is change.

It’s really annoying that this is the reality but unfortunately it is. We’d like things to be easier but they are not.

Today the Sitesell.com’s page on Facebook has been removed without any warning.

If you’re an SBI-er, then you know how long and how hard Sitesell team has been working on their page.

Basically every newsletter they sent in the last 6 months had something related to Facebook. They became experts on getting Likes and traffic on Facebook and taught all of us along the way.

And yet the reality of Internet and life is that bad things happen. Read more

LastPass Review – Easy To Use Free Password Manager

Posted on May 1, 2011 
Filed Under Recommended | 6 Comments

I’ve decided to share this Lastpass review after using Lastpass for about 2 months now.

The reason I wanted to use a password manager was because I often travel and my laptop is basically my office with all the information and passwords to my sites, logins (Google, Amazon affiliate program, …) and emails.

If someone stole my laptop, they would have easy access to all my login info.

Sure, you can protect your Windows with a password but that can be hacked rather easily.

After some researching and testing I’m now an official fan of the LastPass password manager. ;) Read more

Posted on April 13, 2011 
Filed Under Blogging advice | 9 Comments

If you’ve been using freelancers for outsourcing content, you’ve definitely had your share of poorly written articles that you received.

Here are two quick outsourcing tips to help you minimize the amount of poor quality articles and get much higher quality content written.

1. When using freelancer.com, create a project big enough so that you can select “Very small project” where bids are between $250 and $750.

Outsource on freelancer.com

When you do that, you’ll receive bids from writers with the highest ratings which in most cases produce best articles. Read more

The Power of Momentum

Posted on April 2, 2011 
Filed Under Productivity Tips | 6 Comments

Have you seen the movie Unstoppable? It’s a movie about a huge train gone wild with no one controlling it.

That train had massive momentum and it was very hard to stop.

It is of course also very hard to move such a big mass into movement from static state.

That’s because when an object is static, it is also affected by static friction – compared to the object in movement which is only affected by kinetic friction.

Why the heck am I talking about physics and friction on a blog about internet marketing? ;)

Because when it comes to productivity, things are almost the same in physics and working from home. Read more
