Written by Stan Seecrets

Experts in website promotion all agree on this: get as many inbound links as possible. To achieve this, write free-reprint articles, sent them to major article depositories and soon you will have hundreds, if not thousands of inbound links. That isrepparttar hype,repparttar 142932 razzmatazz. The experiences of this techie turned internet writer may provide some useful pointers.

This author started with a clean website and wrote 5 articles in as many weeks. There is nothing else.

Within a week, this authorís site got a #1 ranking from Google, usingrepparttar 142933 authorís name asrepparttar 142934 keyword and has stayed there during this period. MSN finally gave a #1 ranking after wavering between 8 and 12. For 2 to 3 days, Yahoo ranked it as #1 or #2, after which,repparttar 142935 ranking disappeared altogether.

There are about 100 sites which reprinted these 5 articles. Many did not activaterepparttar 142936 link found inrepparttar 142937 authorís bio. The three major search engines reported a total of 48 inbound links. MSN reported 34 links, Yahoo 13 and Google 1. All in all, this authorís site received about 100 visits from various countries. One article appeared in foreign-language site from Brazil.

Do not be surprised at meetingrepparttar 142938 odd article pirate. This particular website stripsrepparttar 142939 authorís bio, changedrepparttar 142940 title slightly, takerepparttar 142941 whole article in word for word and claimrepparttar 142942 article as his original creation. Looking at this site closely, it is easy to spotrepparttar 142943 various styles of different writers, yet this article pirate claimed authorship of all those articles.

This authorís personal take.

Prophetic Nerds

Written by Jesse S. Somer

I am an Internet creative writer and journalist and yet knowledge ofrepparttar technical side of computers still eludes me. As I work with tech-heads I've always had a feeling that they were a different breed of people, with their strange language of numbers and abbreviated terminology. I've also hadrepparttar 142931 egotistical belief that because they are always sitting at their computers, that somehow they were missing out on life, as opposed to people like me who try to spend as much time in fresh air as possible. Well, I had a wake up call today when I asked a few of my colleagues aboutrepparttar 142932 changing world of communication, television, film, and advertising that has begun to evolve at an alarming rate sincerepparttar 142933 advent ofrepparttar 142934 Internet.

First of all, after a short discussion I realized these people are just like me, they do allrepparttar 142935 things I do in their spare time. Secondly, I came to understand that a lot of these so-called 'nerds' are actually atrepparttar 142936 forefront of this revolution of technology and ideas that are changing our world forrepparttar 142937 better. Their well-kept secret is this: As they arerepparttar 142938 people designing these technologies that harnessrepparttar 142939 power ofrepparttar 142940 human imagination, they are actually prophets who can see intorepparttar 142941 future. I'm not saying that they are gurus who have mastered all aspects of life, onrepparttar 142942 contrary, I still believe that most of contemporary society still needs to focus much more time and attention on internal growth and understanding of our emotions and thought processes. However, asrepparttar 142943 tech-head jobs are usually based around ideas about how to makerepparttar 142944 world function better, they are miles ahead when it comes to knowing about which systems are going to implemented inrepparttar 142945 future.

Take communication for example. Whenrepparttar 142946 telephone was first invented by Alexander Graham Bell a lot of people questionedrepparttar 142947 worth of being able to speak to someone that they couldn't see face-to-face. Of course afterrepparttar 142948 benefits were discovered,repparttar 142949 whole paradigm of communication drastically changed. Everyone now felt that it was 'necessary' to have a telephone. Many, many years later came satellites and with themrepparttar 142950 ability to talk to people onrepparttar 142951 other side ofrepparttar 142952 world. Recently we've had huge cables constructed of optical fiber laid alongrepparttar 142953 ocean floor, and with them came light-speed telephone and Internet connections. Well,repparttar 142954 future of communication is now onrepparttar 142955 verge of a new revolution in paradigm as voice-over-Internet communication comes into existence and evolves.

A good example of this technology in its early stages can be found at Skype is a company whose service of computer-to-computer and even computer-to-phone communication has already had around 115 million downloads offrepparttar 142956 Internet. The reason that it is so popular now is that compared to a normal landline phone call, it is super cheap! A few of my friends and colleagues use it regularly so I'll tell you how it works. Inrepparttar 142957 case of computer-to-computer voice communication, each person needs either a headset with built-in microphone and headphones, or a combination of microphone and computer speakers/headphones. At this stage you both also need a Broadband Internet connection, but let me tell you, untilrepparttar 142958 big telephone and Internet corporations put a block onrepparttar 142959 current system (some US companies already have), you can now talk to people onrepparttar 142960 other side ofrepparttar 142961 world for relatively free! The only cost seen is whererepparttar 142962 amount of time you speak is subtracted from your allowable download limit. Talking to someone for an hour onrepparttar 142963 other side ofrepparttar 142964 globe hardly takes any download usage and asrepparttar 142965 Internet isrepparttar 142966 medium,repparttar 142967 'phone call' is actually better quality than a landline but with equal speed so there's no time delay of speaker to listener like inrepparttar 142968 days of satellites.
