Exposing the Hyperlink

By , January 15, 2018 4:02 am

Explains the basics of the hyperlink

hyperlinks, website linking, links

A hyperlink, also called simply “a link”, is a reference in a hypertext document to another document or other resource. It is an integral part of the hypertext transfer protocol (http) for World Wide Web, but it is used also in offline documents, such as .pdf (portable document file, Adobe Acrobat native format) and in .XML (extended markup language). Hyperlink can be used to fetch content and save it, view it as a separate document or display as a part of the reference document.

The history of the hyperlink

The history of the hyperlink began in 1965. Theodore Nelson in “the Xanadu Project” transposed the idea from fictional microfilm cross-referencing system into the computer world. In a series of books and articles published from 1964 through 1980 the general concept was changed from linking whole microfilm pages to connecting specific lines of computer text. Primary concept was intended to use on single computer machine, however introduction of DARPA network boosted the idea into creating links between documents and files stored on several networked machines. The idea of connecting parts of a single document via hyperlink arose independently, but was quickly merged to the hyperlink system. Both concepts combined together were fundamental for creating World Wide Web.

How does a hyperlink work?

A hyperlink has two ends, called anchors, and a direction. The link starts at the source anchor and points to the destination anchor. However, the name hyperlink is often used for the source anchor, while the destination anchor is called the hyperlink target. Every browser shows text hyperlinks somewhat exposed (they usually mark it with a different color). Clicking on the hyperlink activates it and displays target document.

Hyperlink – measuring the Net

But hyperlinks are not only the way we surf the Net. Life on the Web without search engines is almost impossible today, because of unbelievable amount of networked information. Most search engines use so-called “page ranking” to measure which site may contain useful information. This mechanism is mostly based on hyperlink popularity. Although whole idea of “page rank” mechanism is more complicated, its general concept is based on a simple rule: the more pages have a hyperlink pointing to the ranked page, the higher rank that page gets. Of course, each hyperlink has different value, based on the popularity of the “source” site (This means simply that if your website is a target for hyperlink placed on the big site like CNet of Microsoft, it has much higher page rank than a site with several hyperlink connections from private sites). This mechanism is based on measuring of hyperlink’s quality. Although not perfect, both mechanisms usually works well enough to determine which website has got good content and which hasn’t.

Your Rockin’ Red Hot Online Media Room

Did you know that second only to your blog, the media room should be the most updated page on your website? When was the last time you updated your media room? For most of us, it’s probably been a while. We tend to put up media rooms and then forget about them. But more and more, a good, informative media room should be consistently updated.

We’ve found through research, reading, and our own experiences that often it’s not just the media that visits this page, that’s why t…

Did you know that second only to your blog, the media room should be the most updated page on your website? When was the last time you updated your media room? For most of us, it’s probably been a while. We tend to put up media rooms and then forget about them. But more and more, a good, informative media room should be consistently updated.

We’ve found through research, reading, and our own experiences that often it’s not just the media that visits this page, that’s why the term “media room” is a bit misleading. It’s actually a great place to inform, entertain, and educate your reader on you, your books, your message or product, and the things you’ve been up to, and often it’s the first place a prospective buyer will go to for more information on you and your work.

In order to compete in the digital age, more and more authors are turning to their media rooms to attract readers to their book. Why? Well it’s a great one-stop-shop place to get all the latest data on your books, new editions, new products and new speaking events (should you decide to list them).

The old way of doing media rooms was to have a list of your press releases, maybe a link or two to media and that was that. Now media rooms are almost the nerve center of your entire website. Here’s a quick rundown of what should (and shouldn’t) be in your media room. Keep in mind that components of a media room will vary, depending on your topic, genre and focus, so if you can’t include all of these, that’s ok. Better to have only those components related to your book/product/topic than ones that don’t make any sense at all:

1) Downloadable picture of your book cover or covers, your photo and other related artwork you want to offer.

2) About You: people want to know who you are, so tell them! Make sure your bio is on the media room and ready to download. It’s especially helpful if a media person is trying to gather information for an article and wants some background on you.

3) Press releases with live links: a few issues back we wrote that live links in a press release are a great way to get traffic back to your site, but guess what? It works well in reverse, too. News posted to your site gets spidered very quickly, so including links and keywords will greatly enhance the visibility of both the media room and your press release. In fact another quick tip is this: instead of placing ads, issue a press release. No kidding. Press releases are a far better alternative than an ad on the Internet. You’ll get spidered, you’ll get ranking and best of all, you’ll get traffic.

4) New book/product information: this is the perfect place for sharing past, current, and future information on your book. Be boastful! This your chance!

5) Tip sheets: we all know that the media loves tip sheets, but guess what? Your readers/consumers do, too. Fill your press room with any that you’ve created.

6) Where you’ve been featured: be very generous with this. Don’t assume that if you have only been featured online that you should not list that. List everything! The more you can populate this room with links that make you look like the busy marketing person you are, the more attractive you’ll be to your buyer and to the media.

7) Ideas for stories: if a reporter is perusing your site looking for story ideas, why not give it to him? Creating a pop up box that says “Here’s how (insert your name) can help you with your story” is a great way to generate ideas for the media and get yourself a mention in an upcoming story or feature.

8) Bragging rights! If you have testimonials or reviews, place them here, too. While it’s always good to sprinkle testimonials/reviews throughout your site, this is another great place to list them. Regardless of whether the visitor to your media room is the media or a reader, people like what other people like!

9) No hunting allowed! Don’t make people hunt for information. The other day I was on a site looking for book pricing. I had to send an email to get a list of pricing, and why? Because it was confidential? Doubtful. But most people don’t think to remove the extra steps. Shorten the staircase. Meaning: remove needless steps to the close. Put pricing, information sheets, whatever you have up on your media room so folks don’t have to go on a hunting expedition for it.

10) Events: I took events off of my website a long time ago. Why? Because I do so much pop up stuff that I had a hard time keeping up with it. There’s nothing worse than an outdated events page, but if you can keep yours up, great! Keep it current, the activity will look great on your media room.

A few final tips: don’t even consider cramming all of this information onto your site if you’re not going to deliver this in pop-up form. Check out http://www.amarketingexpert.com/media.html for an example of this. Also, deliver your text content in both PDF format as well as in text format so the search engines can spider it.

Don’t limit yourself to the items mentioned above, experiment with other media room ideas that might not be listed here. Book videos, for example, might be another great addition to your media room. The key is, start thinking of your media room as a place to present yourself not just to the media, but to the world! This will change how you view this very important page on your site and help turn a ho-hum page into a rockin’ red hot media room!

You Must Work Hard To Be Rich-myth Or Truth?

‘One of the most common myths about getting rich or achieving financial success is that working hard is the key to create wealth,’ declared Jamie McIntyre.

‘One of the most common myths about getting rich or achieving financial success is that working hard is the key to create wealth,’ declared Jamie McIntyre. Jamie is a very much sought after personal development coach and has traveled all over the world meeting and learning from some of the best teachers in this world including the, Anthony Robbins, General Norman Schwarzkopf and Robert Kiyosaki.

He further insisted that, ‘working hard and making money have nothing in common, I repeat, nothing to do with each other in this modern time.’ Why is this man making such very powerful but controversial statements? Well, he backed up his statements with the following explanation. He uses his dad, a farmer as an example.

His father started off with nothing but is a millionaire now.This man, like most framers, believes that true hard work is the key to success and that was how he became a millionaire. He believed that this is the truth to wealth creation.

Jamie explained to his dad that hard work did not guarantee or actually play a major role in his dad’s wealth. In fact it is a myth. His dad is a wealthy today because of the appreciation of value on his farm land property. The farm is now worth more that a million bucks when his bought it decades ago at a mere $50,000 dollars. Despite the fact that his dad was truly working hard on the farm for many years, this did not make the farmer wealthy. Income from the farm has actually dipped badly and the man would never save a million dollars from his farm’s income even if he worked hard on it for several lifetimes.

His father’s wealth was created by buying the farmland property at a low price and the increasing value of the land over a period of time. Anyone who have read Robert Kiyosaki’s ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’book will find this theory familiar.

His father’s wealth was amassed even when he was sleeping and almost without any effort at all. It is true that good work ethic and some hard work in the beginning helped but the most important feature was the investing of his money on the property and letting his money work for him.

Then Jamie went on to use his mother as another example. His mother had always wanted to open a coffee shop. She did not realize that many years later, she was offered to buy the entire building in which the coffee shop was located.

However she did not buy it because she had already borrowed a lot of money for the coffee shop business and did not like the idea of borrowing anymore money. She was being mistakenly prudent.

She worked very hard for many many years, often not paying herself a salary (another big mistake, as another rule for wealth creation is to always pay yourself first). She often worked hard to pay the shop’s rental. She was working real hard but with a miserable return for the investment and labor.

You see,if she only she had borrowed another $100,000 for the building,she could have:-

a) Charged her coffee shop business a higher rent since the money still comes back to her. Even if her business only managed to pay the rent, it could be used to return the borrowed money.

b) The building would appreciate in value over time making her a lot of money without working and plus her charging a higher rental, it automatically make the building even more valuable.

c) She can sell away her coffee shop business and kept the building profiting from the sale of her business and then have the new tenants paying her rentals for the shop. Now she need not work to have a steady flow of passive income.

d) If she still wants to work, she could work part time for the new owner and then picking up another income stream. The truth is that so many streams of passive income now, his mother could be rich without working hard.

So,in order to be rich you must work hard,is a truth or a myth? Find out for yourself as Jamie is giving away his free financial wealth planning ebook at my blog below.

Your Home Business And The Freedom Of Seeing The World

If you ask the average American what they would do if they had the freedom and money to do whatever it is they wanted, more than half would say they would like the chance to travel and see the world, or even just the country. If you’ve dreamed of doing such a thing, now may be the chance to take advantage of your dreams and seek out the life you’ve always desired. Remember, remember, remember, that you only go around once in this life. This isn’t a dress rehearsal. There are …

If you ask the average American what they would do if they had the freedom and money to do whatever it is they wanted, more than half would say they would like the chance to travel and see the world, or even just the country. If you’ve dreamed of doing such a thing, now may be the chance to take advantage of your dreams and seek out the life you’ve always desired. Remember, remember, remember, that you only go around once in this life. This isn’t a dress rehearsal. There are people right now living the life you wish you had. Are they doing it because they got lucky? Some of them. Are they doing it because they were born into it? Some of them. But most of them started off in the same position you are in now, dreaming of a better life. The only difference between you and them is that they took the risks and the chances to make their dreams come true. You can do the same, and a world of travel could open up for you.

For many Americans (and people living everywhere else in the world for that matter), dreams never become more than that. They think to themselves, “if I ever get rich, here is where I’d like to go and here is what I’d like to do? But they think about these things in abstract, childlike ways. They think they would do these things if they hit the winning numbers in the lottery, for example. For most people, hitting the lottery simply isn’t going to happen. It’s not a reliable investment for the future, in other words. You have to make your own dreams happen through hard work and imagination. But it can be done. What one man can do, another can do. This is a true axiom, and you should commit it to heart. If you want the financial freedom to travel the world, you have to take steps to make it happen.

The next time you’re watching TV or happen to be on an airplane, take a look at the people traveling the world in first class, sipping on drinks and relaxing as they live their dreams. That could be you just as well as it is them. They did what you haven’t done. They took chances. It’s like the ending of The Wizard of Oz, where the three travelers are told they had what they desired all along. It’s like Dumbo and the magic feather. All you need you have in yourself. You simply have to be willing to do what it takes to make a success of yourself. If you take the chance, the worse that can happen is failure. But at least you can say you took the chance. Wouldn’t you rather look back at your life and say, “Well, I gave it my best shot?than to say, “I wish I would have. . .?

Starting a home business is not easy. It’s not the domain of lazy housewives and diabolical scammers, as so many think. It is a realm of hard work, imagination, and ingenuity. If you have a combination of those things, and are willing to learn the ropes, you can make a success out of yourself. And next time it could be someone looking at you in first class, jet setting your way around the world, and wish it could be them.

How long do you spend each week approving, organising and getting new Reciprocal Links?
Whether you are aware of the importance of Reciprocal Links, or not, I think you will find this article about the Zeus Robot very interesting.

Links, reciprocal links, reciprocal links, link exchange, robotic links, robotic link exchange.

Would you like to know about a new robot that works for you even when you are asleep?

Let me tell you about Zeus. . . he is a simple, intelligent, internet robot that builds a link directory and creates reciprocal links for your web site.

Zeus is the first of a new breed of innovative, robotic software products for webmasters.

Zeus is a smart internet robot that traverses the web, spidering sites and creating for any webmaster, a vertical themed link directory.

Train him to find web sites, matching your unique themes or subjects, and he will zoom off to find thousands of them. Zeus then helps you to review and organize them into vertically-themed categories and possible inclusion within your link directory.

Zeus creates qualified traffic to your web site in numbers you have always thought to be impossible. This is quickly accomplished through a series of steps utilizing dynamic website content, increased search engine activity and genuine, match-each-other reciprocal links.

Content is quickly added to a website with dynamically changing, Zeus-generated, link directory pages. With a single click, your Link Directory is built and uploaded to your web site. These themed pages are keyword-tuned to score high in search engine rankings. Search engines give higher rankings to websites with themed content that match each other through mutual reciprocal links. It is now possible for your directory pages to place in the top 10 search engine listings with a single search word! Imagine having hundreds of these pages, each page built around a single keyword or phrase. As a possible added bonus, re-submission to search engines is a forgotten chore once reciprocal links point towards your site. Robots will visit your site more often because they will find links to your website more frequently throughout the internet.

One good reciprocal link can give you the same amount of traffic as a major search engine and with a Zeus internet robot; you can have hundreds of reciprocal links. The best qualified visitors to your site are from reciprocal links. Zeus simplifies the tedious task of reciprocal link generation by providing, from your link directory, a pool of qualified, theme-matching, reciprocal link prospects, organized by themes or subjects. A contact manager is included allowing you to email an individually-personalized reciprocal link request to each website’s webmaster. Everything is easy to edit, organize and maintain. Link Partners receive a preferential graphic and listing at the top of each directory page providing a compelling reason to reciprocate the link.

Your link directory will also ensure your website’s visitors stay longer and bookmark it into their favourites for a speedy return. Zeus is non-invasive to visited websites and follows all the Robotic Guidelines as described throughout the Internet. You can use Zeus in multiple themes; great for web marketers, authors, researchers, webmasters or serious hobbyists.

Zeus is not for everyone but if you are a moderately to expertly skilled webmaster, with limited time on your hands, who could benefit from a vertical-themed link directory and increased website traffic, Zeus will automate almost every aspect of creating such a directory.

You Don’t Need Loads Of Cash To Start A Business

How many are held back from becoming successful entrepreneurs simply because of the mistaken belief that they could never afford to start their own business? The truth of the matter is startlingly simple: you don’t need loads of cash to start a business! What you do need are the drive to get started, the enthusiasm to find artful solutions to problems that will present themselves early on, and the commitment to not let problems that others throw money at stop you from living …

How many are held back from becoming successful entrepreneurs simply because of the mistaken belief that they could never afford to start their own business? The truth of the matter is startlingly simple: you don’t need loads of cash to start a business! What you do need are the drive to get started, the enthusiasm to find artful solutions to problems that will present themselves early on, and the commitment to not let problems that others throw money at stop you from living your dream.

For example, if you want to become a dog groomer, you don’t need loads of cash to start that business. You need to know how to groom dogs. Without this skill, no amount of money will allow you to make any headway into the dog grooming market. In a very real sense, you need to become a “guru??a person to whom others come to answers to their dog grooming questions.

Once you have found your niche and educated yourself ?via classes, books, the Internet, or just personal hands-on training ?it is time to figure out where to conduct your dog grooming. Normally you would need to have a lot of money to rent a shop and equip it, but since commercial real estate leases are out of this world, you will want to do without it, at least until you have earned enough money to comfortably buy or lease a space of your choice. Proving that you do not need loads of cash to start a business, consider that you can work out of the back of your van, SUV, or at the client’s home. You will own the tools of the trade, but the client will furnish the water, the bathing facilities, the electricity, and you do not even need specialized insurance!

Now that you have the what, how and where worked out, advertisement is the final major expenditure for new businesses. Fortunately, there are several cheap or free ways of getting targeted advertising without having to dip into your nest egg. Build a great relationship with those who deal with dogs every day. This includes the vet, the humane society, the pet store, and any other place dogs and dog owners will congregate. Ask to place nicely done color brochures ?you can do them for next to nothing on your computer ?in their offices, and in return promise you will place their names and phone numbers on your ads. Do some community events for free, such as the yearly humane society fund raisers where you can be highly visible turning little matted hounds into stylish pets anyone is eager to take home.

As you can see, from this example of a dog groomer you can quite easily extrapolate that you don’t need loads of cash to start a business, and whether you want to be a dog groomer, typist, writer, copying service, or dry cleaner, there is a way unique to any profession that will lead you to entrepreneurship on a shoestring budget ?if you only have the will!

There will be a sacrifice or two along the way, however there is no reason to put plans to establish your Home Based Internet Business on hold until your children leave home! It is all about time-management and a little give-and-take on the part of the other family members.

Married couples, or those with grown up children should not face too many issues in establishing an Income Producing Home Based Internet Business. There is ample opportunity while your spouse or partner is at work and the kids are at school to put time into your business. Even if they are at home, some job-sharing or delegation of household responsibilities will help. The older the children the more they will understand the reasons behind, and the importance of, establishing and maintaining your Home Based Internet Business. Let them know that you would prefer to be spending more quality time with them, however the need to acquire more income for food, bills and other essential items, is the catalyst behind your decision. As your Home Based Internet Business grows, along with your income, they will both see and enjoy the benefits it has to offer. In time, your Home Based Internet Business will actually allow you to spend more and more quality time with them, both at home and on holidays!

Single parents face a tougher challenge. It is a huge life-altering decision and, unless you have sufficient savings at hand to maintain a suitable standard of living, ensure you remain in your present job until your Home Based Internet Business begins to provide the income level you desire. There is no point relying on welfare payments to see you through the early stages of building your Home Business. You will place far too much pressure upon yourself, and in turn, upon your children.

On the other hand, the aim is to spend more quality time with your children during their formative years, and there is no better way to achieve this than to engage in your own Home Based Internet Business. Your work-from-home routine will centre around the kids sleep and nap times, and/or during school hours. Undoubtedly, it will require sacrifices and demand patience during the early stages, however you will have a golden opportunity to earn a substantial income from your Home Based Internet Business, while spending treasured time at home with your children.

More and more people are turning to online media in order to promote their home-based internet businesses. While blogging and e-zine marketing are effective forms of promotion for your business, another desirable method is to do it by way of the popular website http://www.youtube.com. One of the best things about creating a video clip on Youtube is that it is free and it is very simple to make. If you are industrious enough you can create a variety of video clips surrounding your home-based business and you can choose to release a different version as you see fit.

Youtube is an excellent way to get information out about what your internet business has to offer in terms of products and services as the exposure you receive is tremendous. Visitors to Youtube can easily share the links of video clips with other people which means that not only will the people you contact see your video about your internet business but so will others as well. This form of networking and word of mouth is invaluable to the success of your business. Due to the fact that Youtube hosts your video you do not need to be concerned about any special software or having advanced technical skills.

Youtube offers so much more than video clips to its audience. You can set your video advertisement up however you wish. You can include whatever sort of mood music you feel is suitable as well as creative imagery and taglines. Search for royalty-free photographs and royalty-free music over the internet if you are not in possession of your own as copyright infringement is a serious offense to be found guilty of.

Make sure that your video on Youtube regarding your internet business shows savvy and creativity and do not make it too long, boring or predictable in any way. Make sure you include a tagline that will immediately grab the audience’s attention and have them interested in seeing more. It is recommended that your clip be anywhere from thirty seconds to two minutes. It is not recommended that your clip exceed two minutes as if you make it too long you are very likely to bore your audience as well as to lose their attention very quickly. Online people like things that are short and get to the point very quickly.

When you create your video clip on Youtube make sure not to use PowerPoint and it is not advisable to set it up as an interview of yourself in regards to your home-based business. That shows no incentive or originality on your part. Think outside the box! Always make sure that the web address for your business is clearly visible in the video clip as well.

The power of entrepreneurship and the rapid growth of the direct selling industry have business-savvy investors and large, respected companies sitting up and taking notice. It’s no surprise to the 13.6 million Americans and 55 million people worldwide already part of the direct selling industry that business is booming. Whether you know it as network marketing, multi-level marketing or referral marketing, the industry is making a powerful impact on the way people do business and how they live their lives.

How is it possible that this industry is thriving when so many are feeling an economic pinch? Well, that is simply a matter of perspective. The glass –is-half-full camp believes this is a time of massive economic change. And discerning entrepreneurs who recognize these shifting trends and stake their claim in these new and emerging industries will be the ones to gain enormously. As Fortune magazine recently stated.?Forget the paycheck; your W-2 days are over. It’s a 1099 world now?

Today’s direct selling distributors also called representatives, associates, or independent business owners tell customers, typically people they know, about products and services that can improve the quality of their lives during the course of everyday, normal conversations. These person-to-person conversations might take place at home, at work, or at a coffee shop. And you don’t have to be an experienced salesperson to make money if what you’re selling is a product you use and believe in.

The ease of entry makes direct selling a practical, accessible method for millions to earn additional part-time income without having to quit their job. The typical direct selling company provides all the tools systems and training needed to be up and profitable immediately for a nominal entry fee.

The beauty of direct selling is that it’s all done for you. You don’t have to create a business plan. You don’t have to create a product. The only thing you need to do is find a reputable company, one that you trust, that offers a product or service you believe in and can get passionate about. Anyone can do this!

As the ultimate equal opportunity solution, direct selling represents the purest form of equality through free enterprise. In fact, that’s one of the most striking features of the industry: It involves men and women from all walks of life: all ages: all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups.

In fact, the top earners in direct selling also represent a diverse group of successful case histories. According to the direct selling association, the industry’s trade group, 24 percent of direct sellers have high school diploma or less education; 35 percent are college graduates; and one in 12 has a postgraduate degree.

In my opinion the best way we can secure our own future is to take charge of it early on. We can do this by creating multiple streams of income. There is one thing that can provide you financial freedom and that is residual income.

Residual income is money that keeps coming in long after you complete the work that created it. This can include the monthly income from a rental house, dividends from stock investments and even oil, gas, book or song royalties. Regardless of the source, residual income is the name of the game, and the genius of the direct selling model is that it makes residual income a very real possibility for absolutely anyone, regardless of age, background, education or skills. Not everyone is going to own a valuable piece of real estate or write a best-selling book. But anyone can run their own direct selling business.

Best selling author Stephen Covey says?Direct selling helps affirm people’s worth and potential, and can open up a whole new alternative income stream that can make a huge difference in their life. It is entrepreneurial opportunity where people can use their talent and their passion towards a greater good.

Direct selling’s status as the business world’s best-kept secret may soon be in jeopardy. But that’s what happens when business is booming.

In today’s world, it seems that almost any topic is open for debate. While I was gathering facts for this article, I was quite surprised to find some of the issues I thought were settled are actually still being openly discussed.

Which Internet marketer has not heard the horror stories of the multi level marketing (MLM) newbie who struck out for her- or himself without much help from an up line and probably also by disregarding each and every ounce of good advice offered by many a website and tutorial and instead built a website advertising the product or service for sale? Yet to the fledgling marketer’s surprise, no hits are being registered and in spite of tweaking and pruning the site every which way from Sunday, the traffic is still only trickling in, most of it being accidental rather than targeted. The sad reality is simple: unbeknown st to the new network marketer, the lovingly crafted site she or he spent so much time working on was blacklisted! Do not let search engines blacklist your network marketing product site!

Granted, the fledgling marketer from the example above probably was not quite as pure as the driven snow and instead may have engaged, wittingly or unwittingly, in some rather shady online practices which most major search engines will view as an immediate reason to blacklist the site. Here are some examples:

* Perhaps the most egregious offense is the use of irrelevant keywords within the website’s metatags or even within the body of the site just to generate more hits. Thus, if you are working on promotion a network marketing product related to wellness, the inclusion of several highly searched key terms, such as cancer, heart attack, stroke, and various other ailments will get you blacklisted, especially if the wellness product is not at all tangentially related to any of these conditions.

Knowledge can give you a real advantage. To make sure you’re fully informed about black listed by search engines, keep reading.

* Submitting a website manually or automatically time and again to the same search engine is considered spamming. In the past it was done to ensure a higher ranking of the site, but with the modernization of the process, search engines are very sensitive to being spammed. Do it one too many times and your site will no longer be included in the search results.

* Beware the lure of the mirror site. Once again, this methodology is a blast from the past when it was thought to guarantee a higher ranking within the search engine’s ranking hierarchy. Yet with the advent of optimization procedures, mirror sites are considered to be a relic of the past and those who continue to utilize the technology that in the past allowed them to submit the exactly identical site with a different URL to a search engine will find that neither web address will be accepted.

There are a number of other tips, tricks, and schemes employed by those who design websites for their network marketing product. Do not fall for the lure of easy rankings at the expense of the integrity of your site. It is not just the search engine robots that catch on to your shenanigans, but it is also a more and more technologically astute populace that will realize your ploy and thus you will instantly lose a massive dose of credibility. This, in the Internet marketing business, is the death knell which must be avoided at all costs!

Of course, it’s impossible to put everything about black listed by search engines into just one article. But you can’t deny that you’ve just added to your understanding about black listed by search engines, and that’s time well spent.
