My Experiences With Anti-Virus Software

Over the years I had several different brands of anti-virus software. These are programs that you buy to protect your computer from unwanted programs. Some of them extract such a tremendous toll in system resources that they keep your computer from working. Then when you finally figure out what the problem is they will not allow you to remove them from your computer. How many people have Norton or McAfee software on their computers that they cannot remove? -> Read more

Googling Google

Google has given us new words for our language. If we want to find all about something we Google it. Programmers and web masters such as myself can learn about programming language or style sheet properties just by typing them in the search box. So to find about Google let’s Google Google.

Google, which was originally called Backrub, was launched in 1998. Success came from the relevance of its search results. The name comes from the term googol which means 1 followed 100 zeros.

A growing list of free, advertising supported features such as G-mail, Google Desktop, Google Office and Google Maps have helped to increase the users of Google.

Poormans cron is the module to run all other modules. This polls other modules to see if they have anything to do. Semiclean will clear Poormanscron. If because of website events such as server outages etc. your cron is stuck this will reset it so it can start over with a clean slate.

What An SEO Can And Can Not Do For You

In the broadest terms a SEO (Search Engine Optimizer) cannot make promises. Promises such as “I guarantee you top 10 on Google in 1 month” are impossible no one can guarantee what will happen on Google. No company has a special relationship with Google and Google does not discuss key phrase positions with companies. An SEO firm or individual can tell you what they will do to promote your website and these will be concrete traceable things that you yourself can check on. There are no secret procedures.
The most important things to do are submit a site map to Google, develop interesting relevant content frequently, and write relevant title and sub-titles. It is good to get inbound links but these should be from visitors who enjoy your web site; not purchased, this can get your web site banned from Google.

Why Your Business Can Not Afford To Not Have A Blog

Blogs are great business tools. Blogs announce company information, sales and promotions. Blogs are the perfect way to put a human face on community and employee relations. Blogs are the tools used for communication by modern companies because they are the most cost and time effective way to get news out about your company. Blogs cost one third of the cost of static print advertising. Think advertising that gathers leads and answers product information questions. Imagine having 1000's of customers walk in to your store everyday.

Build Your Business On Your Web Site

Having a web site will bring customers to any business but if your business is just starting out a web site can give it that needed boost to get it going. When your business is just starting out you need to get out your contact information and samples of your work. Having samples of your work on-line can establish you as a professional in your field. The most cost effective way to do this is with a web site. The cost of one large newspaper ad can pay for a website. Web site maintenance costs are one third of the cost of a yellow page listing.
