An Entrepreneur and a Life To Be Remembered

Written by Tim Knox


I was reminded of my own mortality today. I guess you can say I had a near death experience, thoughrepparttar death I experienced was not my own.

No, I was never in any danger, nor was my life ever threatened. In fact, I was sitting inrepparttar 141633 air conditioned comfort of my home office sipping a nice cup of coffee and watchingrepparttar 141634 dogs run aroundrepparttar 141635 yard whenrepparttar 141636 moment came.

The sun was shining. The birds were chirping. Life was going along just fine.

Death wasrepparttar 141637 furthest thing from my mind.

Thenrepparttar 141638 news came that Corey Rudl had been killed in a high speed crash at a race track in California. Atrepparttar 141639 moment of his death atrepparttar 141640 young age of 34, Corey was a passenger in a Porsche that hit a retaining wall at over 100 miles per hour, killing him instantly andrepparttar 141641 driver shortly thereafter. The track had been rented by a local car club so that Corey and his buddies could take their expensive, powerful cars torepparttar 141642 track to see how fast they could go.

Corey died doing what he loved. Those closest to him say he would not have had it any other way.

Corey Rudl was not a professional race car driver. He was an entrepreneur, and one ofrepparttar 141643 best of his breed.

Most of you who read this column probably have no idea who Corey Rudl was or what he accomplished during his short life, and thatís OK. You also have no idea ofrepparttar 141644 imprint he made on me and millions of others who make our living (at least in part) as online marketers. Again, thatís OK. For all his accomplishments, those who knew him well have said that Corey was more concerned about building his businesses than being a public figure. By those accounts, Corey never really cared about being inrepparttar 141645 public limelight, even though he was probablyrepparttar 141646 most visible and successful entrepreneur in his field.

Perhaps thatís why Corey Rudl was so successful. He knew what was really important when it came to building a business. The limelight came easy to him, but his focus always seemed to be on making his business stronger, serving his customers better. He also knew that there was life beyond business, and he pursued that life with a passion and energy that most of us can only imagine.

Corey Rudlís story isrepparttar 141647 classic entrepreneurís tale. He started his business from his kitchen table just a few short years ago selling a homemade booklet he had written on how to getrepparttar 141648 best deal on a new car. From that modest start Corey built an internet marketing empire that has generated $40 million dollars in revenue in just a few years.

Corey wasrepparttar 141649 definitive internet marketing guru. He was young, energetic, and highly passionate about his business and his industry. He wrote and spoke frequently onrepparttar 141650 topics of internet marketing and business success and thatís where he and I briefly crossed paths. We were both expert columnists for Entrepreneur.com and exchanged several polite emails, nothing really personal, mind you, mostly swapping compliments of each others work.

Much of Coreyís time in recent years was spent teaching others how to do what he had done: build a successful online business from scratch. For a man of just 34 years, he packed in decades of expertise and knowledge and he shared it with anyone who would listen, including yours truly.

Frames and Search Engines

Written by Sumantra Roy


When it comes to framed sites andrepparttar effect thatrepparttar 141587 use of frames by a site has on its search engine ranking, there are two schools of thought.

Some people say that framed sites, if done properly, have no problems in getting good rankings inrepparttar 141588 search engines.

Others claim that if search engine optimization is important to you, never use frames.

In my opinion,repparttar 141589 truth lies somewhere in between. Yes,repparttar 141590 use of frames does throw up a few issues when it comes to getting good rankings inrepparttar 141591 search engines which don't understand frames.

Hence, when you are designing a new site, I would recommend that you avoid using frames, unless you have a specific reason for doing so.

However, if you already have a site which uses frames, all is not lost. You can still get good rankings inrepparttar 141592 search engines even though you have used frames.

Furthermore, using frames also has its own advantages when it comes to search engine placement, as we shall later on.

This article assumes that you have a working knowledge of frames. For more information on frames, go to http://www.webreference.com/dev/frames/

In case your site uses frames,repparttar 141593 key to getting good rankings lies in usingrepparttar 141594 NOFRAMES tag. The NOFRAMES tag is intended to help framed web sites display some content for those people who are using browsers which don't understand frames.

The search engines which don't understand frames also look atrepparttar 141595 NOFRAMES tag. Hence, if you are using frames, you need to add content torepparttar 141596 NOFRAMES tag.

What you should do is to add a complete web page withinrepparttar 141597 NOFRAMES tag. Ensure that this page repeatsrepparttar 141598 important keywords for your site a number of times.

Also, in order to ensure thatrepparttar 141599 content withinrepparttar 141600 NOFRAMES tag is as prominent as possible torepparttar 141601 search engines, you should putrepparttar 141602 NOFRAMES tag right afterrepparttar 141603 FRAMESET tag.

However, don't putrepparttar 141604 NOFRAMES beforerepparttar 141605 FRAMESET tag. If you do that, Internet Explorer will display your site correctly but Netscape will displayrepparttar 141606 content present inrepparttar 141607 NOFRAMES tag, rather thanrepparttar 141608 content present withinrepparttar 141609 frames.
