The internet is heating up overrepparttar spam issue. My first reaction was to get mad, but that's counter productive.

There's only one way to keep your business on track untilrepparttar 125221 dust settles. You need to have contingency plans in motion.

You can sit here untilrepparttar 125222 "Cow Jumps Over The Moon," crying about your rights, but if you leave your business at risk, You takerepparttar 125223 loss.

Internet Marketing is here to stay, but there may be times whenrepparttar 125224 ride gets a little bumpy. If you're not ready, you could berepparttar 125225 next casualty.

So how am I preparing myself?

Luckily, before I started online, my hobby was mail order. The internet was much faster and cheaper so I cut back on my mailing and pumped up my online efforts.

Now after three bogus spam warnings, I've changed my mix from 90 % internet to 70 % internet and 30 % mail order.

The hard and winding road to Search Engine top ranking

Written by Johan Oun

Duringrepparttar last period of time I have been coding scripts for our site, that let webmasters submit their pages to over 90 searchengines, indexes and directories (there is a difference between these three categories!) - and boy, have I learned that it must have been far easier forrepparttar 125220 camels? to pass throughrepparttar 125221 eye ofrepparttar 125222 needle (or whatever they where passing?), than for a site to get high ranked atrepparttar 125223 major search engines!

In order to collect data for writingrepparttar 125224 scripts, I have been constantly surfing roundrepparttar 125225 net picking up all information needed. The wayrepparttar 125226 scripts work are quite straightforward, they mainly emulaterepparttar 125227 forms onrepparttar 125228 "add-new-url" pages on each searchengine, directory or index, doing so "plugging" inrepparttar 125229 actual submitting-site-data inrepparttar 125230 forms, nice and tidy!

This surfing around has given me a huge insight in howrepparttar 125231 different searchengines are acting and responding, as well as where and how you can promote your site onrepparttar 125232 web. As a matter of fact, I think have manually spideredrepparttar 125233 bigger part ofrepparttar 125234 "web-promotion-related-community" onrepparttar 125235 net.

On our site I have also written tutorials on these matters, doing so surfing around to find whatrepparttar 125236 real Gurus have to say and teach. This has helped me a lot.

Now this struggling part of my life seems to come to some sort of final, and I have been using our site to promote itself! Really a funny experience, rather like lifting yourself inrepparttar 125237 hair.

Ok, what aboutrepparttar 125238 hangover, you may ask? Well, let me put it this way: The two qualities a site-promoter must have to avoidrepparttar 125239 hangover are patience and accuracy.

- Patience: Don't think that your submission will show up withrepparttar 125240 "reload-page-button" on your browser. It will take weeks and months forrepparttar 125241 majority of engines to spider or list you. And when they do, hopefully you have enteredrepparttar 125242 correct data, and your pages are containing relevant "meta-tags" and loading correctly - otherwise - resubmit - and getrepparttar 125243 web-promotion-hangover!!
