Dealing With Search Engine Stress In A Home-Based BusinessWritten by Kirk Bannerman
As a member of several search engine optimization forums, I have recently noticed (especially since Yahoo recently decided to try their hand at competing with Google) that stress level of many webmasters has gone way up. This applies not only to webmasters involved in Internet-based home businesses, but to webmasters in general.
Additionally, it seems that many people that are in business of search engine optimization (SEO) are, with good reason, going completely bonkers. As Google came on scene in 1998 and quickly dominated search business, website optimization became largely a game of shooting at a single target, namely, pleasing Google...for all intents and purposes, Google became "800 pound gorilla" of search engine business.
Since advent of search engines (particularly Google) spawned whole SEO business, I guess its only fair that search engine industry can once again turn SEO business on its ear, and it seems now to be sort of a cat and mouse (not desktop) relationship that can get really interesting as we move forward.
Not only are there now several viable players (most notably Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and Ask Jeeves) in search engine business, but they are all adopting different and frequently changing algorithms for determining ranking positions for websites. The current game is that webmasters are trying to figure out how various search engines perform rankings and, on flip side, search engines are striving to be unpredictable to those webmasters and SEO firms.
Starting and Running a Home Based BusinessWritten by Darrell Knox
The allure of a home based business is very strong these days with uncertain economic times and pressures of working long hours for less pay. More and more people are exploring home based business world to see if it is right for them.
More women are seeking home based businesses as corporate life and pay just don't seem to justify time away from home and children anymore. Men tired of working for others and also loosing their entire lives with their families to a job that requires more than 40 hours a week just to survive, are learning more and more about internet and working at home.
There are many ways today to start a home based business. The internet offers easiest, least expensive way to start a home based business ever. Never before have people been able to start up an entire, legitimate business just by signing up for a hosting account and selling information or other products from their web site.
Even least internet savvy person can start an online home based business even if all they know how to do is retrieve and send email. In fact, one you know how easy it is, you will be amazed that you hadn't started sooner.
Any home based business is hard work. But ask yourself this question: Will your current job pay you more for working harder? In most cases answer will be no. Your current employer will not only happily pay you same amount whether you work hard or not, they will profit from work you do because they own business you work for.
