Beautiful Art – Thoughts

Read the rest of this entry

TRUE LOVE MEANS:

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot…

…who calls you back when you hang up on him…

…who will stay awake just to watch you sleep…

…wait for the guy who kisses your forehead…

…who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats…

..who holds your hand in front of his friends…

…wait for the one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you…

…wait for the one who turns to his friends and says, “…that’s her, or that’s him”…

Understand the value of Friend and Friendship!!

TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING THROUGH THE DESERT.
DURING SOME POINT OF THE JOURNEY

THEY HAD AN ARGUMENT

AND ONE FRIEND

SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE

IN THE FACE.

THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED

WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT

SAYING ANYTHING,

WROTE IN THE SAND:

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND

SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.

THEY KEPT ON WALKING,

UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS,

WHERE THEY DECIDED

TO TAKE A BATH .

THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN

SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE

MIRE AND STARTED DROWNING,

BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.

AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM

THE NEAR DROWNING,

HE WROTE ON A STONE:

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND

SAVED MY LIFE.

THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED

AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND

ASKED HIM, “AFTER I HURT YOU,

YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW,

YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?”

THE OTHER FRIEND REPLIED

“WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US

WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN

IN SAND WHERE WINDS OF

FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY.

BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES

SOMETHING GOOD FOR US,

WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE

WHERE NO WIND

CAN EVER ERASE IT.”

LEARN TO WRITE

YOUR HURTS IN

THE SAND AND TO

CARVE YOUR

BENEFITS IN STONE.

THEY SAY

IT TAKES A MINUTE TO FIND A SPECIAL PERSON,

AN HOUR TO APPRECIATE THEM,

A DAY TO LOVE THEM,

BUT THEN AN ENTIRE LIFE TO FORGET THEM.

SEND THIS PHRASE TO

THE PEOPLE YOU’LL NEVER

FORGET.

IF YOU DON’T

SEND IT TO ANYONE,

IT MEANS YOU’RE IN A

HURRY AND THAT YOU’VE

FORGOTTEN YOUR FRIENDS.

TAKE THE TIME TO LIVE!

With Loads of Luv to All

Link-Baiting

On the topic of SEO, what actually really works… is there a killer technique to blow away the competition and steal the traffic? Not usually. However, under certain circumstances, it is possible to take advantage of your existing content and use this to give you an edge. In particular I am thinking about link-bait and its careful use in a site which has strong content on a certain subject. The problem with link-bait is that it needs to have that critical x-factor as well as having reached the inbound link critical mass, beyond which it effectively generates it’s own links and becomes a self-propagating link building system. A fair bit of work is usually required to get to this stage. However, there is a way to utilise your existing site strengths to leverage your link bait to that critical mass. As a working example, let us focus on a fictional new site which specialises in selling gourmet food. It has many many competitors and decides to use a link-baiting strategy to boost it’s PR and traffic. How does it go about this?

aims11.gif

Here is the strategy. First, create some tools which are popular on your chosen subject, in this example it could be:

  • a calorie counter script (to work out how many calories your food contains)
  • a script to determine the carbon footprint of the manufacturing process of a certain foodstuff
  • a script to tell you which foods are free from a combination of allergy-inducing ingredients

The main point is that the scripts should in themselves be useful and already successful on other sites. Perform a search on Google to get an idea of which scripts/topics (in your chosen area) are most popular. Now, these already-existing scripts are popular and competitive, many sites have them, so we need to specialise a little further. What you need to do is find the most popular scripts which are housed in sites that are more general than the script topic, and rewrite them (to avoid plagiarism).
In this example, I would want to find the most popular scripts which are hosted in sites that are not about food (carbon-footprint scripts would fit this criteria, so let us focus on this). It sounds like a lost cause, but actually it is not, there are many cases of top tools being hosted in more general type sites.
The crux of this strategy is that you choose a tool which is predominantly hosted on pages/sites, which have less naturally occuring keyword-rich content than your own site.

In this example, I could decide to create a page on my example site with my own scripts on carbon-footprint calculations for ethanol crop production (which is becoming a hot topic). Other sites’ carbon-footprint scripts are surrounded by content on global warming and the like. My site, which contains many terms related to the production of ethanol providing crops, such as sugar beet etc (all food related terms), will be in a relatively strong position to compete against these more popular sites for keyword phrases connected with the use of food for producing energy. In this case it is a topical subject, your content is more relevant to the tool in question and hence you stand a good change of Google ranking your tool quite highly for popular keywords. The end result is that your tool could rise up the rankings and displace higher PR sites with similar tools. Once you do that, your link-bait is there for the taking and has exposure to people who are looking for it.
Once people can find your tool in the SERP’s, they will naturally link to it from their blogs etc. The knock-on positive effects could be dramatic as the inbound links raise your PR and swell your traffic.

What keywords should you use?

When people are searching for information on the Internet, the queries they enter into search engines and directories are comprised of keywords and keyphrases. The keywords and keyphrases that we think they use and what they actually use can be two very different things.

Here’s a couple of tools that I use to help determine keyword structure in content that I am developing:

Overture search term suggestion tool

Overture is the world’s largest PPC (Pay Per Click) networks. They provide a tool for their advertisers to help them gauge keyword popularity in relation to searches on their network, but you don’t need to have an account with them to use it:

Word Tracker:

This is a premium service, but you can get a free trial. Word Tracker is the favorite tool of many SEM and SEO professionals.

Word Tracker compiles a database of terms that people search for. You enter some keywords, and Word Tracker will tell you how often people search for them, and also tell you how many competing sites use those keywords.

 

Good KeyWords – Free software

Good Keywords is free Windows software tool from Softnik Technologies for finding the ideal set of keywords for targeting your web pages. Use Good Keywords to find suitable keywords sets, create your meta tags, brainstorm product ideas, etc.

The applications also contains a link popularity and site popularity tool

Choosing the correct keywords and phrases for your site content can mean the difference between your site being buried in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) or making the first page. It’s crucial that your site is listed within the first 30 results for as many of your industry keyphrases as possible.
