Google Plus is Open for Everyone – No Invitation Required

While some people have been seemingly hesitant to get involved with Google Plus because they did not receive an invitation yet, it is not necessary to wait. Google Plus is free and open to everyone now. Any individual who wants to create a profile is able. You do not have to wait to receive an invitation from someone else. As soon as you get started you can start sending invitations to friends, families, and work colleagues, letting them know that starting a profile with Google Plus is free, fun, fast, and easy.

You do not need to wait for an invitation to Google Plus. You can start a free profile today. All you need to do is register. With the announcement of Google Plus people everywhere are beginning to notice the advantages associated with hanging out on the web without the privacy concerns of Facebook. With Google Plus you can create circles, select which circles see your posted thoughts, and no longer have to worry about your boss reading about your facebook status and calling you into his office the next day. When you create groups of friends via Google Plus you can broadcast thoughts to a preferred circle. This means that you no longer face the same privacy risks. Instead you can select which circles see what information. Privacy is given the highest level of care and support with Google Plus. In order to take advantage of Google Plus features you can start with creating your circles.

Once you sign up for Google Plus you should begin to create your circles and organize your contacts. Once you have a new person you can drag their photo into the circles you create. There is no limit to the number of new circles you can create. You can even place a single contact in multiple circles. There are four buttons on the right near the logo, and the one furthest to the right is meant for the creation of circles. When you select it you can then see all of your contacts in the panel—all contacts, not only Gmail contacts—and you can place them into the circle you create.

When you invite people to Google Plus you must add them to your circle. You can click on the circles icon and then add a person using their email address. You pre-determine under which circle said person will fall and then send them an invitation message once you click on their icon. Of course it is important to know how to get rid of someone from your circles, whether you are moving them to another circle or removing them all together. In either case you simple select the circle in which the person is currently, highlight their icon, click on them, and drag them out of the circle.

If you want to make your stream on Google Plus appear in italics or bold fonts you can apply these changes, unlike other updates. You can bold your text by putting a star as the prefix and the suffix for the text. If you want to make it in italics you can use an underscore as the prefix and suffix. To cross out text on your steam you can place a hyphen as the prefix and the suffix.

Upon uploading a photo to Google Plus you will be asked to create an album. When you create your album you will then be prompted to select which circles can see the album and which cannot. You can select enhanced privacy features for your photos unlike Facebook which has a default setting to all of your friends. You can literally drag and drop photos from your desktop which are then automatically uploaded like in Gmail.

Backlinks, Good vs. Evil – The True Breakdown

Backlinks are an effective subsidiary of search engine optimization techniques which should be integrated into your complete SEO plan. By increasing our quality of backlinks, it should increase the traffic to your site through an increase in your search engine results. It is true that ninety nine percent of internet users will only scroll through the first page of search engine results which means that only the top ten sites will benefit from SEO. There are now many popular SEO techniques used to increase a company’s rank and better reach customers. One of those is backlinks.

Backlinks are considered incoming links to your website. When a visitor clicks on a link which takes them back to your website that is considered a backlink.

These can be very useful because they primarily provide easy access to your site. If a backlink is located on a non-competitive website such as a directory site, then it can easily increase your web traffic. Search engine algorithms utilize the number of backlinks to your website as part of your website’s relevancy. Backlinks are like a vote of approval from other sites. The more backlinks you have the more relevant your site and the

content therein. The higher your relevance the better your search engine page rank, primarily Google page rank. If the link is placed with content it is better. If the link is placed on its own without other links present, that is a quality backlink and it is better for search engine page ranks.

Because backlinks provide an easy and effective manner for directing traffic to a site, people have discovered ways to cheat or “game” the system and get higher ranks for their pages. These algorithms can be distinguished and when caught, the website content providers are punished. This can mean your site is removed from the search engines entirely, thus limiting your revenue. This will happen in Google, if you try to “game” Google.

If you try to “game” Google, they would most likely remove your site from the SERPS.

The key to benefiting from backlinks is to differentiate between the good and bad kinds. You always want to incorporate good backlinks. There are times when having bad reviews still help because at least they are reviews, but that rule does not apply to bad backlinks. Bad backlinks can result in your site being removed from search engines. Bad backlinks are the result of cheating the SEO system to increase your rank faster. One way to define “bad backlinks” it so describe it as buying massive amounts of backlinks or by posting too many links which are not relevant, or using linking software which then marks your website as spam.

Good backlinks will provide links on other websites which point to yours. In order to utilize good backlinks you should link on a site which already has a high page rank. You should also link on a page which lacks other links. If there are too many other links it can be marked as spam and will not catch the attention of internet users. As an example, if site A has a backlink to site B and site A is in the same marketing affliation(Site A sells car parts and site B sells spark plugs), then that is a quality backlink. You also want to link within the content of the page instead of on the sidebars or on the footer. If you can integrate the website into the content on the other website it is best. You also want to link from a relevant website.

The Small Business Guide to Social Media Success

In order for your small business to be successful with social media, you need to ensure that your effective social media presence is not hindered by obstacles. The first step to social media success for your small business is utilizing your time wisely. Social marketing is often pushed to the bottom of the list for small business owners.

When you begin working on your social marketing you should integrate it into a daily routine. You do not need to participate in every single social network in order to have a strong presence in social media networks. It does mean, however, that you select the mediums which best appeal to your target audience. If you have a retail store which needs to show photos, then Facebook would be the ideal social network, rather than a professional referral company which would use LinkedIn.

The second step to social media success for your small business is to converse, not sell. You want your followers, friends, etc… to be engaged. Social media is not meant to be one-way advertising. Pushy sales messages are not meant for social media. Here is where you begin conversations and build relationships, especially as a small business owner. Once you have your niche, you should raise awareness to your company brand by offering insightful content which stimulates customers.

The third step to social media success for your small business is to consider your budget. There are many costs associated with social media use, time being the biggest. If you hire help it can be costly but it might be worth the investment to outsource social media duties to a freelancer rather than hiring a full time employee.

There are many costs associated with social media use, time being the biggest.

The fourth step to social media success for your small business is to be more than a brand. While branding your company is important, you want to be more than a corporate brand. As a small business you need to be a person too. The audience which supports your social media wants to know the people behind the company name. You need to show audiences what makes your company unique and why and how they are able to identify with your products or services.

As a small business owner, it is important to cultivate your business through social media. Here you can better learn what customers think, what they like, don’t like, and with that knowledge you can offer services and products which better appeal to customers. By doing this you can earn higher levels of loyal customers while also improving your SEO strategy. In order to keep your ranks high and your customers loyal you need to maintain authenticity, consistency, and responsiveness.

Your access to potential customers is greatly increased by the use of social media. No longer are you limited to in-store promotions, paid advertising, and word-of-mouth referrals. You can link customers who might be interested directly to your keywords, active discussions, profiles and interests. By placing links to your website on your social media profile, links to your articles, and links to your YouTube videos or blogs, you can increase the number of the backlinks to your site and enhance your search engine rank.

The Proper Use of Keyword Density in Articles

As a webmaster and writer, I love writing strange analogies. Correlating wine consumption and SEO tactics seem like a far off comparative subject, don’t they?  I think that that my comparison, in this article between those two items of discussion will prove some matching points and you will find it interesting.

It can be said that keyword density and everyday wine consumption can be compared. Some doctors feel that daily red wine consumption can help in the

prevention of heart attacks and it can lower LDL or bad cholesterol. On the other hand, drinking too much red wine can also have detrimental effects as well. This

red wine and keyword-density analogy does apply to the use of keywords density in articles in the world of SEO or Search Engine Optimization. Websites that take Search Engine Optimization very serious will support this analogy. Website page rank has a direct reflection of search engine results and how well they are linked with proper keywords. In order to be successful, the proper use of keywords or keyword phrases that is relevant to the products and services that these websites offer. Therefore, many inexperienced webmasters, that think they know SEO, are

convinced that the more they use the keywords in their articles, the higher the level of SEO will be provided in those particular articles and ultimately delivering better page rank. However, it doesn’t really work that easy. Like the analogy of drinking red wine, if there are too many keywords on the articles, the articles will get receive SERP penalties as they are considered overuse or spam like in nature. Hence, there has to be the proper proportionate use if keyword density on articles that are considered well written articles.  The culminating use of keywords in the proper portion is achieving a balanced density, which means the number of repetitive keyword uses should be balanced with the amount of words in the articles.

Calculations for Keywords vs. Keyword Phrases

The calculation of keyword density and keyword phrases is very similar, in fact.  The main difference lay between humans and software. The thing (or person) who analyzes the relation between keywords and user queries is really a search engine, not a human being. In order to get the proper keyword density, the percentage should not be more than 5% of the total words written using your keywords. Based on the advice of some highly regarded search engine optimization experts, the ideal percentage of keywords density is only 2%-3%. So, if you would like to use keywords, you have to calculate the density by dividing the number of particular repeating keyword with the entire sum of words in the article.   For example if your article has 1000 words and you use a keyword 20 times, that would equal 2% and that is acceptable. If you use a keyword 100 times in that article that would equal 10% and that is way too high and unacceptable.

Keyword phrases are to be considered exactly the same way as keyword density and they are just calculated similarly but using the phrase instead of the actual word.  For example, a “keyword” consisting of multiple terms, e.g. “wide screen monitor” should be considered an entire word in itself. It is the frequency of the phrase “wide screen monitor” within an article that determines the key phrase density.

In conclusion, all you need to know when writing an article just use common sense in how you are conveying the article and, at the same time, use the (key) words as how you would speak them to another person.  Each search engine has its own equation formula to make a standard of density measurement. So, if Google has a certain keyword formula, Yahoo may be different. Most people target the most-used search engine, Google, though.

Website Page Length Considerations

When arranging your pages, be aware that novice viewers can be easily disoriented by long, scrolling Web documents. They seem unable to find links when they disappear off-screen as they move through very long pages. Though there are ways to keep your novice viewers oriented, it’s a good idea to limit your documents to two screens worth of
information. If you must use long documents, be sure to feature navigational links at the beginning, end, and even the middle (if your document is very large) of the Web document. A frames system helps to eliminate this problem by enabling you to keep your navigation bars on-screen while the content is scrolling.

Another disadvantage of very long Web documents is that the viewer must rely on the
vertical scroll bar to navigate through the page. In many graphic interfaces the scroll bar
slider is a fixed size and gives the viewer no real indication of the length of the
document relative to what is currently visible on the screen, so users have no idea how
long your Web document is, or when they will reach the end of it. In extremely long
Web pages, very small movements of the scroll bar can completely change the contents
of the screen, leaving the viewer no familiar landmarks on screen (where am I?). This
forces the viewer to creep slowly downward with the scroll bar arrows (often
line-by-line), or risk missing sections of the page.

All this would seem a good argument for always limiting your Web documents to two
page lengths, but of course, as with all rules, there are exceptions. For instance, it makes
sense to keep very closely related information within the confines of a single Web
document, especially when you are providing information which you anticipate the
viewer will want to print or save to text. By keeping the content within one document,
you make printing and saving much easier. When designing long Web documents such
as these, always provide internal links within the document. The best way to do this is to
arrange your Web document like a book, with the information split into separate sections
(chapters). You can then make a table of contents at the beginning and end of the
document so viewers can jump to a particular section without having to scan through the
whole page.

A navigational table of contents.

Page length tips:

  • Attempt to make the majority of your pages no longer than two screen lengths. If you must use long documents, feature internal navigation links at the beginning, end, and even the middle (if your document is very large) of the Web document.
  • When a page is intended to grab people’s attention, don’t make the page longer than the average screen length.
  • If your document is more than one screen “page,” try to see to it that some content is presented on the first screen so the user can tell that there’s more to be seen below the horizon.
  • If your pages include text that viewers will want to read at length, it’s all right to use lengthy, scrolling pages—just be sure to warn them that a big file is coming.
  • If dividing information into separate segments, provide a separate link to a complete document. This will make it easier for viewers to print or save your document.
  • If you have a page with only a small bit of information, try to combine it with related information. It’s very annoying for the viewer to have to wait to download a page that only contains two links or one paragraph of text.

Making the Site Captivating – Part 1

We hate to pigeonhole communications, but there seems to be a trend among WWW
design that lends itself to categorization. We can break many pages and systems into
three categories:

  • Basic Information

  • Entertainment

  • Product Sales

As you’ve surfed around the internet, you’ve probably seen pages and systems that fit into the
above categories. You’ve probably seen systems that give way too much information on
a product (and do so in a dry, technical manner), systems that are all bells and whistles
with no content, and systems whose only focus is on getting you to order the product
right now.
Our focus in designing commercial websites is to combine these three types of systems into
one, and thus create a complete marketing tool. As we have already said, marketing is a
combination of things that lead to commercial advancement, and not a single entity.

What we are seeking is a balance of information, entertainment, and product sales
communications that will provide a complete communications package.
To put things into perspective, we’ll tell a story about the three little business people. The
first was an informer. When she was asked to send a client information about a product,
she would gather everything she could get her hands on, bind it all together in one big
book, and send it to the client saying that everything they could possibly want to know is
in there. The second person was strictly an entertainer. He would go to a client’s office, tell jokes,
show interesting slides, do magic tricks, and so on. The third person was strictly focused on getting the client to order. She would walk into the client’s office with a contract in one hand and a pen in the other.
Separately, these three people did very poorly. They would either confuse, distract, or
irritate the clients. Together, however, they were unstoppable. They were able to engage
the clients, provide him or her with the information they needed, and close the deal.

Your pages should keep the same balance. You want to provide enough information for
your potential clients to make an informed decision (and to support them after the
purchase), you want to provide this information in an engaging manner, and you want to
make the sale. By balancing this carefully, you will make your system appealing to the
broadest audience.

Organizing Your Page to Your Commercial

The Benefit

So, how do you go about making a system that provides all three elements in perfect
balance? The key is in organization, both at the page and system levels. To may make
the site appealing to the broadest audience, you will need to design your work so that it
provides effective communications to several different types of people (shoppers looking
for a quick overview, people wanting in-depth detail, and so on). We’ll start with the
basics.

  • Basic Elements of a Web Document
  • These items should appear on every commercial WWW document:
  • Company name
  • Link to information on contacting company or company e-mail address
  • Page title
  • Author or contact person’s e-mail address
  • Content
  • Link to home page
  • Date of creation or latest revision (on time-sensitive materials)
  • Statement of copyright
  • Hypertext link(s) to other related local pages
  • Company logo

The basic items in a commercial Web document.

Your company name and logo should appear on each page, so that it is clear to everyone,
regardless of how they entered the system, who owns it. This also ties the Web system
into any printed collateral.
Providing a link to information on contacting the company, or a company e-mail
address, is crucial. Remember, this is two-way communication we’re dealing with here.
If the viewer can’t get ahold of someone for ordering, further information, and so on, the
system doesn’t serve much of a purpose other than letting people know the company
exists somewhere.

Many of these elements can be addressed in different ways.
The company name and logo can be a graphic on each page, a
banner in a frames system, or something else. You should
address all of these items in some way, but the exact way you

do it is your choice. The page title should exist on two levels: first, it should be included within the HTML
<TITLE> tags, so that a browser will display it outside of the page (usually on the
browser’s top border). Second, the title of the page should appear clearly within the body

of the page, so that it can be viewed within the first screen (without scrolling) on a640x480 pixel monitor. The author or contact person, often called the webmaster, should present an e-mail
address, and a link to his/her e-mail, on every page if possible. This enables people to
report problems with your pages. This sometimes becomes a nuisance, as there are
people out there with way too much time on their hands who will fill your e-mail box
with annoying observations. On high-traffic websites, you may want to drop the webmaster
link after you’re sure that most of the bugs have been worked out of the system.
A link to the system home page offers primitive navigation to people who may be
unfamiliar with your other navigation tools, and it enables people to start over from the
beginning. It’s also useful if someone is accessing your system from anywhere other than
the home page.

  • Press releases, technical updates, and other time-sensitive materials can include the dateof creation and/or latest revision. If this is not something you want to make public (and there’s really no reason to), you can include it in the code as a comment tag, or you can encode the date, revision and any other information on the bottom of the page (as in 080896r4). Copyright law states that you needn’t claim a document as having a copyright for it to bevalid and legally yours, but it will help if you are ripped-off and need to take it to court. Your statement of copyright should look something like this: Copyright 2007, Blasty, Roads and Associates, All Rights Reserved.
  • Hypertext link(s) to other related local pages should be included for obvious reasons, but how and how many are a matter of style and application. For instance, don’t link out in the middle of a paragraph if you want that paragraph to be read; instead, add a more information link at the end of the text.

Why Valid HTML (XHTML) is important to SEO

Why Valid HTML (XHTML) is important to SEO

What are do many webmaster write non valid HTML?  HTML or “hypertext Markup Language”, is vastly misused and written poorly Valid HTMLthroughout the web.  HTML is what the world wide web is made of and should be taken much more seriously. The validity of the HTML coding or programming is a very important.  But, you ask why is that important?  Most web pages are written in HTML or HTML is produced once a database query is asking for a page to be built on the fly .  Just like any other language on the planet, HTML has its own syntax, vocabulary, and grammar.  In other words, it needs to be readable by another computer and that very same computer will need to display it properly. Every online document written in HTML is supposed to follow these rules. In the natural progression of today’s internet, programming languages have long been perceived by the mainstream programmers as a “natural art” for designing websites and other web applications.  In the early days of the web, it was all text based and not graphical at all.  Once graphical user interfaces came to light on the web, so did HTML.

What is valid HTML code?

Valid HTML code is simply said programming code that is built in accordance with Web standards, and provides one of the most reliable guarantee that future Web platforms will handle it as designed. Validation is one of the simplest ways to check whether a page is up to snuff to today’s standards.

Why Web professionals choose to validate for Valid HTML?

  • Valid HTML allows for greater accessibility, cross-browser compatibility, and can even possibly help your search engine rankings.
  • When a search engine like Google crawls your site with it’s search bots, it has to parse the HTML code of your web site to find the actual relevant content to what you’re writing about. If your HTML code contains errors and is NOT valid HTML, search engines might not be able to find everything on the page.
  • Search engine crawler programs obey the HTML standard. A non compliant site makes it extremely difficult to crawl or index your site if it the coding or programming is NOT compliant to the HTML standards set today.  While on your site, if the search engine locates an error in HTML, it may simply cease the crawling of your site just because of the error.

Although most major search engines can deal with minor errors in HTML code, a single missing bracket in your HTML code can be the reason if your web page cannot be found in search engines.

There are many uses for coding or programming your website(s) to be HTML valid or HTML compliant.

  • Professional webmasters use validation as a debugging tool
  • Professional webmasters use validation as a future-proof quality check
  • Professional webmasters use validation to cross check their coding or programming skills.  It’s is one of the simplest ways to check whether a page is built in accordance with Web standards, and provides one of the most reliable guarantee that future Web platforms will handle it as designed.
  • Professional webmasters use validation to eases maintenance
  • Professional webmasters use validation to help teach good practices
  • Validation is a sign of professionalism

Imagine telling a friend who has never been to your house and telling them directions on how to come over for a party.  You start to give them some directions based off a map but halfway through you start speaking in nonsense and gibberish. The friends wouldn’t have much luck in finding your house, would they?  The same is true for websites that are broken and have invalid HTML.  Valid HTML is one of the most important aspects of Search engine optimization.

Improving Website Rankings with Search Engines

Improving Website Rankings on Search Engine (s)

Many webmasters are spending a lot of time trying to find a way to improve the rankings of their websites without “gaming” or “tricking” Google. With the number of websites, online businesses blogs, e-shops, articles, and social networks on the web increasing each day, webmasters and content generating people are facing a stiff competition to get their websites to grab some of the market share for their websites, online businesses blogs, e-shops, articles, and social networks.

When internet surfers cruise the web, people are unlikely to check the 4th or 5th page of the SERP (search engine result page) on search engines when they are searching for something It is very influential for webmasters to have their websites listed on the top positions in order to get “organic” search engine directed traffic.

There are so many methods that you can utilize online to “Perk Up” your website’s search engine rankings. You can use SEO (search engine optimization) or PPC (Pay per click) ads. However, these methods may not be suitable for every webmaster.

I’ll now list out some examples that will help in some basic ideas on increasing visibility for your websites, online businesses blogs, e-shops, articles, and social networks for search engine ranking increase.

  • SEO (search engine optimization)

    • If you search hard enough, ironically,  you will find 10,000 different ways to improve your SEO (search engine optimization). You will find a ton of ways to get more information about SEO methods on the web, but it is hard to find the ideas that provide the important details on how to really improve rankings. An internet newbie often confused by so many theories that he/she found, and some theories even work against each other. It is important to understand the fact that SEO can actually harm the business if not being done correctly. If you are in the practice of trying to “game” Google, you could be delisted or deranked from their SERP (search engine result pages). One of the solutions that you can do for SEO is to use the service of an SEO specialty company. The problem is, using the service of an SEO company is generally expensive, and you have to make a long term commitment so that you will end up spending even more money before you can get the results you are looking for.
  • PPC (Pay per click) ad Campaign

    • Basically, a Pay per click (PPC) campaign is an Internet advertising model used on website’s around the world, where advertisers pay the advertisement host only when their ad is clicked. With search engines, advertisers typically bid on keyword phrases relevant to their target market. Content sites commonly charge a fixed price per click rather than use a bidding system. PPC campaigns are displayed within SERPs. You have to pay for every click that somebody do on your ad even if the click does not result in a sale so that you might end up spending a lot of money without getting the expected results. You may get traffic but very few conversions from those clicks.  For example, if you bid 50 cents for each click and your ad get 100 clicks a day, you would have to pay $50 a day.  There is a very relevant chance that you won’t make any sales (conversions from clicks) for that day. The $50 that you spent that day will end up being a total waste. Another huge disadvantage of using PPC is that once you have spent your limit for that day, your advertisement ends up NOT showing up anymore.  It will only keep working if you keep spending the money and if you don’t, the ad disappears. When you are out of money to spend on advertising, the PPC campaign will stop while you haven’t done anything that can improve the value of your brand at all.
