Top 10 Ways To Irritate Your VisitorsWritten by David Bell
Let's face it. It is really hard to come up with new ways to fully irritate visitors to your site. I thought I would share some ways that I have found to irritate visitors and drive them away, thereby saving you money on your hosting bills. These tips are not in order according to their effectiveness, however #1 is by far most effective. For 100% effectiveness, use any three of these techniques. 1. Install a script to disable everyone's right mouse click button. When someone tries to right-click, be sure to pop up a really insulting warning that accuses them of trying to steal your secret HTML code. Disabling right click button will allow you to: - Keep visitor from bookmarking your site - Keep visitor from using forward and back browser functions - Keep visitor from opening your links in a new window - Keep visitor from stopping a slow loading or hung page - Keep visitor from using Reload function to correct a display problem - Keep visitor from printing your secret content - Keep visitor from using such illegal tools as Google site information tool Admittedly visitors can do all of these things with buttons at top of browser, but maybe they won't know that and simply go away as you intended when you disabled their dangerous right-click button. 2. Create a really long page then starts playing your favorite song and put stop and volume controls at very bottom of page. This will make sure they do one of following: - Listen to entire song all way through 5 times while reading your content, which proves them worthy of experiencing your site - Try desperately to find Stop button - Go somewhere else to stop song from playing. 3. Decide in advance what screen resolution your visitors must use in order to see your pages. It is absolutely a great way to drive them off when they have to scroll from side to side to read sentences of information. You can make this 100% effective by making your pages so wide that no monitor can display it. 4. The really professional irritator will not settle for just one obscure browser plug-in. Go for gold. Use several bloated plug-ins that no one has already installed. This should drive away all newbies because they usually have no idea how to install even one plug-in, much less three. Experienced surfers will be glad to spend 20 minutes installing plug-ins to view your unique content. 5. When visitor arrives at your site, be sure to pop up at least two ads behind their browser window and a minimum of two ads in front of their window. This will give them lots of options in where to go now that they have been sufficiently irritated to desire to leave right away. Even more important is way you treat occasional hard case that actually stays on your site after all of your efforts. When they leave, remind them to never return. Start popping up windows all over their monitor with windows that multiply every time they try to close them.
How to republish RSS feeds on your websiteWritten by Allan Burns
In this article I am going to cover some tools that you can use that will allow you to publish RSS feeds on your site. This will allow you to have fresh, updated content on your site and you have control of what sort of content you display and how often it is updated.
First off if you do not know much about RSS or feel you require more information take a look at this RSS publishers FAQ and then rejoin us again later.
There are several ways you can go about publishing RSS content, two of which this article will cover are using third party software that will take care of RSS republishing for you. The second is to use some freely available PHP code to generate your RSS pages.
If you do not what PHP is or have little knowledge or PHP or programming then I would recommend that you use RSS Equalizer which takes care of complicated stuff for you. RSS Equalizer produces HTML format pages that it has transformed from RSS feeds it is using as its source.
