It's All About The HitsWritten by Rob Wiley
Lets face it. It's all about hits. The more quality hits you get to your site, more chances you will have to promote your product and make a sale. As a business owner, or someone in field of helping a business promote themselves on web, this proves to be a true fact. So what can you do to get more quality hits you ask?
My first suggestion would be to find someone who is specialized in that field and not looking to rip you off! If you need advice just email me. If you have done a little bit of research in this field I'm sure you know what I mean about scam artist. There are far too many sharks out there waiting to make another buck at your expense, (and getting rich at it if I might add). As I mentioned, it's all about hits, and if you have something that is a benefit to others, those hits will come if you planned and executed properly. There are a lot of steps to take to make your website successful. The question is; how many of those steps do you want to take on your own? A good start is by having your site reviewed.
Contextual Ads, Do They Work?Written by Rob Wiley
I just read something about how next big web thing doesn't live up to it's expectations. This next big web thing turns out to be contextual ads. After reading about this, it got me to think... What would I do?? If I was looking for a particular rock for my rock collection, what would I do? How would I go about searching for such an item? And with in my search, would I ever click on a link from a contextual ad? I thought these questions and finding answer to them would help me make a clearer decision as to "the next big web thing" and if it really is a flop. Procedures I took in finding answers goes like this. First I went to Goolge and typed "Jade" into search field. When results came back, I was kind of disappointed. Because word "Jade" is a name that was applied to ornamental stones that were being brought to Europe from China and Central America. I couldn't find any information on gemstone "Jade" until third page. When I did find an actual page relevant to gemstone, it was a description page that described different properties of Jade. Although I was getting closer to my search to purchasing a piece of Jade for my collection I still found search rather long. At this point if there was a contextual ad on page that hinted to a gemstone store featuring Jade, I would click on it. There was no such ad so I cancelled my search and figured I would have better success at Big Sur.
