Use SEO techniques to improve your website search engine ranking

Posted by CJCM

Promoting your website in the internet can be done in many ways. For example, you can send emails to all your friends in your address book and let them know about your products website so that they can visit the site to find out more about your products services. You can even send SMS to every contact in your mobile phone although that is a little unconventional.

However, the methods mentioned above can only reach those who you know. What about millions others that you don’t know who use internet everyday looking for products and services offered by your competitors? The answer is very obvious. You must conquer the main tool used by these millions internet users in searching for information in the internet, the search engines.

Search Engine Optimation (SEO) is defined as techniques used to improve a website’s ranking in the search engines. Over at Wikipedia, SEO, which is a subset of search engine marketing, is defined as the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via “natural” (”organic” or “algorithmic”) search results.

For some information technology-savvy internet marketers and webmaster, SEO can be self-implemented by learnig about SEO techniques which are widely available over the internet itself. This can save them some good money and in turn provide them opportunities to learn about SEO itself.

For serious online business owners who have neither skills nor time to learn SEO techniques themselves, professional SEO service is the only choice they have. The experience and expertise posed by these search engine marketing (SEM) companies not only ensure the right search engine strategy deployed for each business type, but also making sure the SEO and SEM efforts give maximum return on investment for the businesses over a long term period.

Before engaging any third party to implement the SEO strategy for their businesses, it is very important for these business owners to have general understanding about SEO and SEM. Again, the internet medium offers almost unlimited resources for such information. One of the first steps that should be taken by these online enterpreneurs is to understand as much as possible about SEO by studying search engine marketing glossary.

Having a good general understanding about these SEM glossary will provide the business owners not only knowledge about SEO and SEM in general, but also gives them some advantages when dealing with the professional SEO consultant they are going to engage to provide online search engine strategy for their business.

SEO implementation that are executed with business owners having a good understanding about the topic will enhance the chances of obtaining successful results as well as fruitful and long-term business relationships between the business owners and the SEO consultant hired.

SponsoredReviews officially launched

Posted by CJCM

SponsoredReviews - win-win for bloggers and advertisersI joined a new web advertising program called SponsoredReviews sometime in mid January 2007. At that time the program was at the beta testing stage so I just joined and requested to be notified upon its launch. SponsoredReviews had been officially launched recently and I just got my first order from them. The first assignment is to review the SponsoredReviews itself.

It looks like the trend among web advertising companies such as PayPerPost, RevewMe, CreamAid and now SponsoredReview is to always to review itself, which I think is important to create buzz among internet communities. After all web advertising companies also need to promote themselves too, right?

So what is SponsoredReviews? Do I need to go in detail? With all the buzz, publicity and even controversy around pay-per-post schemes, it is suffice to say SponsoredReviews is not much different from other web advertising services that offers opportunity for advertisers to get their products and services reviewed by bloggers. The bloggers in turn get paid for their review services.

Despite the similarity in the services offered by other paid advertising companies, SponsoredReviews has it own unique identities and features. The part that I think most bloggers like best is the fact that SponsoredReviews pays bloggers every two weeks after the assignments are completed. Other paid advertising companies normally companies pay bloggers one month after the assignments are completed. Now that is a big plus for bloggers.

Bloggers are also not required to write only positive reviews. As a matter of fact, constructive critisms are expected so that quality of the products and services being reviewed can be improved from bloggers feedback.

From advertisers point of veiw, SponsoredReviews has other advantages as well. SponsoredReviews offers a low transaction fees of only 35% while they claim their competitors charge 50%.

Another good point of the system is that SponsoredReviews offers a Two-way system where advertisers and bloggers can search for each other for assignments. This is definitely unique feature of SponsoredReviews. In other programs, advertisers posts available opportunities and wait for bloggers to reply with offer to review their services, although the advertisrs can reject the reviews if it does not meet their requirements. With SponsoredReviews’s ability to search for each other, advertisers who place greater emphasize on the quality of bloggers now have the option to search for a good blogger in the pool of bloggers and make an offer. But I am not sure if advertisers would want to go through that process. Maybe they prefer the bloggers looking for them instead. Whatever that may be, the option is there and advertisers now have the opportunity to pick the best bloggers to review their products and services.

Other features of SponsoredReviews include Automated Rating System which will make it easy for advertisers to find high quality blogs. Sponsored Reviews’s bidding system allows both advertisers and publishers to negotiate pricing although bloggers will be able to set their own prices with manual pricing. SponsoredReviews’s system will make recommendations based on their Automated Ratings System, but bloggers will be able to choose their own prices. Of course the final prices will have to be agreed by both advertisers and bloggers.

So what are you waiting for? If you have good blogs, I would suggest that you register with SponsoredReviews and have an opportunity to monetize your blogs in a new way. Advertisers should also take advantage of the many features available to promote your products and services over the internet. Bloggers Earn Cash, Advertisers Build Buzz. I am off to seek more opportunities and get paid in two weeks time.. :)

Save money with compatible or generic consumables

Posted by CJCM

tn_dscn1272.JPG

I have just refilled my Canon’s inkjet printer using a compatible product available in the Malaysian market. In my case it worked just fine. But I must remind you using a compatible ink product is not recommended by the original printer manufacturers. However, it is entirely up to you to decide. Of course using the original equipment manufacturer products gives you the peace of mind but it normally costs you a lot more than using a compatible product.

Whether you prefer to use original or compatible consumables, you would still want to get them at cheapest price possible. If you are in Malaysia, the best place to shop is Low Yat Plaza right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. However, with the advent of e-commerce, shopping for cheaper consumables on the internet is now possible. But unfortunately, internet shopping in Malaysia is still not as widely accepted as in Western countries. In those advanced countries there are countless sites on the world wide web you can shop for cheap consumables such as Ink, inkjet cartridges, toner, toner cartridges provided for your printers, copiers and other multifunctions office equipments.

Inkers is one such e-commerce site. They offer a wide range of compatible or generic consumables at reasonably cheap prices. You will be surprised at the variety of products they carry on their websites. Inkers will deliver your order free of charge to anywhere in the Continental USA via ground delivery service. Inkers online shop lets you place a secured order and allows you to pay online using major credit cards as well as PayPal. If you are not totally satisfied with your order, Inkers has a no-question-asked 30-day return policy. The products also come with one year guarantee. Better still, they will pickup the items from you at no cost to you and would either replace or return you money back. You will not get this kind of guarantee if you shop at Low Yat Plaza or any physical brick and mortar shops anywhere in the world, I don’t think so.

Broadband services: Malaysia vs United Kingdom

Posted by CJCM

I blogged about how poor is the service provided by TMNet’s Streamyx broadband sercvices in Malaysia. Streamyx becomes the talk of the town every now and then due to its performance that resembles more like a yo-yo than a true broadband service. To be fair to TMNet, I must say the speed and stability of Streamyx broadband had improved significantly lately. But I still experience sudden and abrupt disconnection every now and then, which is quite annoying. The sad part is, no matter how unhappy you are with broadband service in Malaysia, TMNet’s Streamyx is the only logical choice due to the fact that it is the sole provider of broadband services in Malaysia that provides nationwide coverage, well almost. Take it or leave it.. that must be the motto that makes TMNet don’t really care about customer service.

Now lets take a look at UK. First of all, there are multiple broadband service providers offering competitive product and services. Upon checking the Broadbandsuppliers.co.uk website, I found out there are twelve (12) broadband providers that provide a wide range of products and sercvices to spoil the consumers. From the broadband services point of view, I wish I live in UK but then I can’t stand its cold weather.

The services offered by these broadband ISPs are also cheap compared to Malaysia’s Screamyx.. oppss Streamyx. The bandwidth offered by these broadband providers are also very impressive. While Streamyx offers bandwidth connection of up to 2Mbps only, majority of UK’s broadband providers offer up to a whopping 8Mbps connection. I am sure broadband internet in UK is very much more fun than in Malaysia due to its competitiveness. But then there is no place like home and Malaysia is my home, so I’d stay with Streamyx for now.

Online resources for web developers and programmers

Posted by CJCM

When I started my tertiary studies in the field of information technology way back in mid 1980s, all I had for references were hard-covered books and computer manuals that I had to carry around the campus for reference. There weren’t even softcopies of user manuals of the programming languages I was learning then. If I need some help in doing my assignments, I had to go and personally see either my lecturers of some friends who were obviously more knowledgable due to the fact they had personal computers at home. At that time there were no internet available yet.

But that was then. Since the advent of internet, the scenario had dramatically changed, not only in the field of education but in every imaginable field mankind are involved. As for developers and programmers, internet had provided a medium not only for information sharing but also as a medium where the like-minded communities can actually communicate and interact with each other. Web developers and programmers, naturally are the group of people who actually gain the real benefit of internet in the early days. Online communities of every field of information technology are now avaialble all over the internet, serving millions of members of the information society who are always hungry for information related to computing
