The Internet is Not Everything to Everyone

Written by Todd Rockwell

Whenrepparttar webmaster's full-time attention is on publications onrepparttar 132018 Internet, and all full-time efforts are to increase public distribution of data posted in these publications, it is difficult not to over-concentrate. I believe most webmasters are aware ofrepparttar 132019 existence of obsolescent post office mail advertising, or snail mail, but I do not believe much advertising effort is currently being channeled into anything except Internet related sources. Even magazines are now ezines and "personal contact" means e-mail. We still see individuals, sometimes dressed in weird costumes, standing alongsiderepparttar 132020 road in a downtown area, waving a sign about a grand opening, or grand closing, or special car wash, or some such. But I have never seen anyone standing alongsiderepparttar 132021 road waving a sign advertising a new website. "That isn'trepparttar 132022 way Internet sites are promoted". But why not? There is no law stating physical business sites must be promoted physically, and cyberspace sites promoted only in cyberspace.

Many, many people now have an electronic door that can be knocked on via email or notices in search engines or bannered in popular programs or on popular sites. But those same people still have a physical presence that can be reached. The excitement of allrepparttar 132023 new "dot.coms" is subsiding, but not necessarilyrepparttar 132024 products they presented to an eager public. While many ofrepparttar 132025 flood of e-businesses were little more than electronic pyramid letters,repparttar 132026 online sales of durable goods has not decreased substantially withrepparttar 132027 expiration ofrepparttar 132028 many get-rich-quick schemes. Likerepparttar 132029 days ofrepparttar 132030 California Gold Rush many dot.coms did not pan out - but many e-businesses became online catalogs of what people had formerly driven their cars to a store to view, and satisfied customers of such catalogs are not going to readily relinquishrepparttar 132031 convenience of online shopping. However, non-satisfied customers of online shopping, and those yet to testrepparttar 132032 World of Internet shopping, are not likely to learn about it fromrepparttar 132033 Internet. Literally millions of people have been hearing aboutrepparttar 132034 wonders and convenience ofrepparttar 132035 Internet - butrepparttar 132036 only place they can find out aboutrepparttar 132037 Internet is fromrepparttar 132038 Internet. And there is a lot of garbage on that Internet, as well as useful websites. The Internet is not really a very good atmosphere for presenting legitimate offers and products of value - unlessrepparttar 132039 customer already knows their value and knowsrepparttar 132040 location where they can be found. Separatingrepparttar 132041 wheat fromrepparttar 132042 chaff onrepparttar 132043 Internet requires someone well versed in Internet procedure. It is truly a "boot-strap" operation for someone to learn anything very useful fromrepparttar 132044 Internet until they have already learned quite a bit from that Internet. Everywhererepparttar 132045 uninitiated turn in cyberspace they encounter more confusion and deception.

Profit From PleasureProtecting your site from Theft and Poaching - Combating Smart Tag and TOPtext technology

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.
