Written by Pamela Heywood

Several respected publishers; jl scott of iCop inrepparttar WHISTLE BLOWER Boogie Jack in Almost A Newsletter and Armando in F.B.C.N. -- have all mentioned these gruesome visitor stealing technologies, this week and quite rightly, ranted aboutrepparttar 132016 injustices.

I view this as copyright theft, as well as a downright underhand attempt to take food right out of our mouths.

But you can do something about it. This isn't 100% foolproof, but should make an impact -- who knows, if you do it, pass it on and so forth, it could end up being enough of a boycott to make these people think again?

First, visitrepparttar 132017 link below, which will give you some more background information on what this is about -- will show you how serious it is -- and for details on how to combat most Smart Tags. You will need to make a one line edit to all your site's pages, but it is well worth it.

Being a Webmaster

Written by Phil Bate

It's easy to become a webmaster. But, to become a really good webmaster takes a lot more. And this takes a lot of work and study.

Many years ago, I started yacht racing inrepparttar Caribbean. I had been sailing sincerepparttar 132014 age of 11. I thought that I was an "expert" sailor, but I found that I was really a novice. It's easy to teach someone to sail from point A to point B. BUT, getting from point A to point B inrepparttar 132015 shortest possible time is a whole new story. It took me a full year before I won my first race in a field of 10-12 boats.

Webmastering is very similar. Sure, anyone with more than three brain cells rubbing together can learn HTML, and with allrepparttar 132016 free editors out, it doesn't even take that much effort. (Like learning to sail from one point to another.)

As my own webmaster, being retired, an ex-digital engineer (before psychologist), and computer guru, ex-sales engineer/sales manager, etc. I thought that I hadrepparttar 132017 tools to dorepparttar 132018 job.

After having a web site for over a year, I found that I have put thousands of hours of just plain study in to all facets of this fascinating job. Having spent my "retirement" money in sailing aroundrepparttar 132019 Caribbean for several years, I don't have much money, so had to learn it all on my own. (I don't regretrepparttar 132020 cruising years at all, byrepparttar 132021 way.)

So, what did I learn about webmastering? It's a very complex job, requiring several levels of completely different areas of basic knowledge. I've been studying it intensely for well over a year, and have set up four web sites for different types of sales, (free health advice, a yacht company, a travel company, and a personal site). When starting a web site, what is necessary?

First,repparttar 132022 webmaster (and you if you have decided to hire one), have to analyse just what you are selling. After that analysis, decide how to present what you are selling, and how to do that on a website. All too many people just jump into a web site using one ofrepparttar 132023 fancy editors such as Front Page. Using their "flashy" setups is easy, but is it reallyrepparttar 132024 way you want to present your message?

How about graphics and salemanship? If your graphics are too big and take too long to load, people will click off before they get to your real message. So, you have to know (or learn) a lot about how to make graphics effective - not just flashy - and how to condense them so that they load as fast as you can get them to. You have to learn a lot more than you wanted to know about graphics, but it's all necessary.
