RSS Aggregators


One of the most popular features of Internet portals, websites, pages and even emails is a frame that features an organized list of news headlines and periodic updates from other web sources. Really Simple Syndication, formerly “Rich Site Summary” or simply, RSS makes this possible. Most users visit a lot of websites whose content continually change, such as news sites, community organization or professional association information pages, medical websites, product support pages, and blogs. As Internet surfing became an intrinsic part of business and leisure, it became important to get rid of the very tedious task of repeatedly returning to each website to see updated content. RSS easily distributes information from different websites to a wider number of Internet users. RSS aggregators are programs that use RSS to source these updates, and then organize those lists of headlines, content and notices for easy reading. It allows computers to automatically retrieve and read the content that users want, then track changes and personalize lists of headlines that interests them. The specially made computer programs called “RSS aggregators” were created to automatically find and retrieve the RSS feeds of pre-selected internet sites on behalf of the user and organize the results accordingly. (RSS feeds and aggregators are also sometimes referred to as "RSS Channels" and "RSS Readers".) The RSS aggregator is like a web browser for RSS content. HTML presents information directly to users, and RSS automatically lets computers communicate with one another. While users use browsers to surf the web then load and view each page of interest, RSS aggregators keeps track of changes to many websites. The titles or descriptions are links themselves and can be used to load the web page the user wants. RSS starts with an original Web site that has content made available by the administrator. The website creates an RSS document and registers this content with an RSS publisher that will allow other websites to syndicate the documents. The Web site also produces an RSS feed, or channel, which is available together with all other resources or documents on the particular Web server. The website will register the feed as an RSS document, with a listed directory of appropriate RSS publishers. An RSS feed is composed of website content listed from newest to oldest. Each item usually consists of a simple title describing the item along with a more complete description and a link to a web page with the actual content being described. In some instances, the short description or title line is the all the updated information that a user wants to read (for example, final games scores in sports, weblogs post, or stock updates). Therefore, it is not even necessary to have a web page associated with the content or update items listed -- sometimes all the needed information that users need would be in the titles and short summaries themselves. The RSS content is located in a single file on a webpage in a manner not very different from typical web pages. The difference is that the information is written in the XML computer code for use by an RSS aggregator and not by a web user like a normal HTML page. There are 2 main parts that are involved in RSS syndication, namely: the source end and the client end. The client end of RSS publishing makes up part of the system that gathers and uses the RSS feed. For example, Mozilla FireFox browser is typically at the client end of the RSS transaction. A user’s desktop RSS aggregator program also belongs to the client end. Once the URL of an RSS feed is known, a user can give that address to an RSS aggregator program and have the aggregator monitor the RSS feed for changes. Numerous RSS aggregators are already preconfigured with a ready list of RSS feed URLs for popular news or information websites that a user can simply choose from. There are many RSS aggregators that can be used by all Internet users. Some can be accessed through the Internet, some are already incorporated into email applications, and others run as a standalone program inside the personal computer. RSS feeds have evolved into many uses. Some uses gaining popularity are: ·For online store or retail establishments: Notification of new product arrivals ·For organization or association newsletters: title listings and notification of new issues, including email newsletters ·Weather Updates and other alerts of changing geographic conditions ·Database management: Notification of new items added, or new registered members to a club or interest group. The uses of feeds will continue to grow, becauseRSS aggregators make access to any information that individual users like more convenient and fun.

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a tool useful for saving or retaining updated information on websites that you frequently visit or websites that are your favorite. RSS utilizes an XML code which scans continuously the content or subject matter of a certain website in search for new informations then transmits the information updates by way of feeding the information to subscribers.

RSS feeds are generally being utilized in blogs or news sites, though any website wanting to broadcast and publish information can use them. Once new information is sent, it will contain a headline, a little bit of text, and either a rundown or a brief review of the news or story. A link is needed be clicked upon to read further.

So as to accept RSS feeds, a feed reader is needed, called an aggregator. Aggregators are widely and freely available online, and all that is needed is a bit of searching, you will be able to locate a certain interface that best interest you. What's more, RSS feeds can likewise be read and retrieved from cell phones and on PDAs.

Once you encounter upon a website that you want to add or insert to the aggregator, the process can be done in two ways. Almost all sites offering an RSS feed displays an “RSS” or “XML” button in their homepage and with one click, it promptly add that particular feed to one's aggregator. Some aggregator however, requires the need to copy and then paste the URL of the feed unto the program.

Whatever the method used, you can be certain that the feed will be accessible soon as you have inserted it, likewise, in just seconds, the next update can arrive. In the event that you do not anymore would want to accept or take in updates, you may simply delete or erase the feed from the aggregator.

Through e-mail subscriptions, you can receive newsletters. RSS feeds on the other hand, can be more convenient in keeping up with newsletter updates since they are prompt and available in an instant; you no longer have to wait for a scheduled time or day to obtain a news summary, plus, these news will never be detained through a spam filter.
RSS feeds are widely used everyday by individuals who understand and appreciate the accessibility of fast reports and news that can be readily read and only read certain updates that appeals to them.

Aggregators

Aggregators are popular use of feeds, having several kinds. Web aggregators or portals as they are sometimes called, create this view which is then made available in a Web page. Also, Aggregators have been incorporated into e-mail patrons, users of desktops, or dedicated and standalone software.

Offering a collection of special features, such as combining more than a few related feeds in just a single view, hiding certain entries or statements that has been already viewed, and classifying entries and feeds, the aggregator is a versatile component.

Why make a feed available?

You will have more viewers, since now, your viewers can conveniently see your site without even going out and looking for that certain site. While at first, it may seem corrupt, it will in fact enhance the visibility of your site; this is so because users can easily keep up or keep tract with your site, to allow them to view in a way that they want to; it's more probable that guests are aware should something that is in their interest is available or accessible on your site.

For instance, every month your website broadcasts a new feature. Having no feed, your viewers will always have to keep in mind to go to your site in a certain time to see if they discover something new; that is, if they can remember, and if they still have the time. However, if you supply a feed for your viewers, they can just point to their aggregator and it will instantly provide them a link along with a description of happenings or events at your site immediately.

What format to choose?

Syndication is very confusing as it uses a lot of formats that can usually be come across in the web. However, this can easily be solved as in general, syndicated libraries are used by aggregators which conceptualize a particular format that a feed is in, in order that they can utilize a certain syndication feed.

With this, whatever format to pick is just a matter of personal preference. RSS 1.0 is far reaching, and practical should it be integrated into Semantic Web systems. RSS 2.0 is very easy and simple create by hand. And atom is an IETF Standard, does it brings constancy, stability and a natural and accepted community to support its usage.

Building Your Business with an Opt-in List  
ima Mon 6 Jun 2011 ima
ima



Before revealing the secrets of the trades, here are myths and fallacies that need to be cleared before one indulges into building an opt-in list. These marketing misconceptions could pose so much of an obstacle towards your profitting well from your business.

Not a lot of people use email

Email marketing is one of the most effective marketing methods nowadays simply because virtually almost all people use email. Check on those email fields or blanks required to be filled up on various forms needed in processing different transactions. A person without an email address is tantamount to a person without an online home, which is one big shameful truth for this generation.

Email marketing campaigns can offend a lot of people

The not-so secret way to surmount this dilemma is through permission-based advertising. There's no harm in trying after asking for permission.

It's stupid to send email to all the people

The key to this predicament is to have a very discerning eye on who to email and who to not email. Better look for some metrics on how to know which group of people would give you high ROI or return on investment.

The Real Deal with Building Opt-in List

After clearing the fog regarding email marketing myths, here's how one can benefit from employing the power of email marketing campaigns - building an opt-in list.

However, building an opt-in list is not a piece of cake particularly for the uninitiated. Here is a roundown of tips on how to succeed in this kind of marketing endeavor.

1. Strategic Collection of Data

Know which information from your audiences will help you in lowering expenses and/or make sales flourish. Devise a tactic to make people voluntarily provide you with the information necessary to create higher conversion.

Overload of data is not good. Ask only for opt-in, with their full name and email addresses. Make sure that the profiles that you gather are updated to aid in improving the relevance, timeliness and satisfaction from each deal you make.

2. Good Implementation

Old adage says it all - 'action speaks louder than words'. This easily translates to the difficulty one has to undergo during the execution of his or her email marketing efforts. It's a good thing that various methods, often low-cost, abound to hasten and facilitate the building up of one's opt-in database.

Tracking your email marketing results can pose great hardship, too. Technology and relevant sources should be employed in making this aspect of your marketing a lot manageable. Your high traffic groups of opt-ins with the greatest result should be taken noted of.

The following are the most widely used methods to leverage channels without overspending:

1. Make use of websites.

It is an excellent tool for data collation and providing you with relevant info regarding your email offers. Use forms that solicit your visitor's email address and consent.

2. Make use of print ads, brochures, TV, radio and direct mail.

These are the more popular ways of marketing aiming to lead traffic to one's site. You may want to ask for signups for email services. Make your website more visible through these media. Offering free electronic newsletters and or rewards program can do well in making it easy to win the nod of your audiences, too.

3. Maximize your sales force.

Customer service associates can help a lot in making you benefit more from your email correspondence. Sales people with proper education on how to aid you in this endeavor can very well contribute to higher ROI. Techniques like offering account updates and special programs through email can easily land you those lists of valuable visitors.

4. Don't make your point of sale pointless.

Forms for signup located at cash registers and other high-traffic and highly visible spots can be very excellent venues for your business to collect email addresses. Notification of upcoming sales through their email addresses and names can coax them to supply you with the information you need.

5. Conferences or trade shows can work, too.

Giveaway offers or entries on sweepstakes are great for opt-in to volunteer their contact details.

These tactics should be applied with adequate caution and should focus on earning the trust of your opt-in list instead of simply collating data for your sole own benefit. Always make sure that the forms that you will use and other methods that you will employ will not necessitate too much fuss to subscribe. This is for people to not be annoyed during the process of data supplication.

With that bunch of information, who can ever go wrong with the feat of building an opt-in list?

All You Need To Know About Blog Hosts  
ima Mon 6 Jun 2011 ima
ima
Apart from the chat rooms, instant messengers and electronic mails created for communication and dialogue beyond turf are the emerging innovations that help man build opportunities for interaction. The need for a personalized and human face aspect of building online communities is slowly changing the technological landscape of the Internet.


Blogs / “weblogs” or blogging are the newest gift of Internet technology to people all over the world. These are updated posts, crop up entries or personalized life snippets, of mundane or bizarre in nature. For most, a “blog” is a personal, unedited, and authentic journal meant to be shared in an online community. Blog site is a place where bloggers can publish anything; his thoughts, feelings, photos, special events, experiences, comments on issues and so on. It is more of an online diary with videos, links, documents, newsletters and opinions on just about any topics you are interested.


Blogs are made to welcome the insights and opinions of all and therefore, should not be written to sound intimidating and too formal. This kind of blog is a sure way to put off the readers. In the basics of blogging, conversational tone would be more appropriate to reach the desired audience.


Blogging is all about individuals reaching out to other individuals. Having a blog has its own set of advantages:

? Freedom of Expression. If you want people to hear you out and give their own opinion, this is the best way to create a line of communication;
? Networking is at its best. Having a blog is a good platform for exchanging genuine ideas from consumers to you as marketer of a certain product. Sound opinion and point of view is better than just showing the price quote;
? Excellent advertising platform. Blogging is a new way to advertise products, a refreshing change from the traditional advertising outlets and it is cost-effective.
? Gauging public opinion on products and services. The key is nice and catchy titles with new ideas presented in your content. This is an assurance of quick and repeated responses from your readers. Blogs is an excellent spot for the exchange of ideas between the seller and the consumer. Good for measuring public opinion regarding services and products, even political and business matters alike.
? Useful tool for internal communication. This will help your company to build a knowledge-based community of employees. Also good for harnessing employee relations and identifying human resource issues in advance.
? Other benefits like search engine optimization (SEO) will help your blogs to be seen often by as many people as you wish. This is very good exposure for your products and services.


Many blog hosting services are available on the Internet. But the basic question is which one of the services will be the best to start off your business blog program? Business people are usually clueless to recent technological innovations which would help them maximize their marketing potentials. For these beginners, it is best to study first the services offered by blog hosts. An ineffective business blogging program may damage marketing opportunities instead of enriching them.


A company may decide to do the following depending on its capacity and needs: 1) Host their own blog service, 2) Pay someone else to host the service, or 3) Setup a “blog aggregator page” and ask the employees to select their blog hosting services individually. There are paid and free services available for individuals.


For business blogs, they are required to have the latest blogging features; if not, this will prevent them from maximizing their marketing, public relations and SEO potentials.


Keep in mind that blogs should have the following basic essentials:


COMMENTS. Welcoming comments provide opportunity for dialogue. In business blogs, they are a good customer feedback mechanism. This helps develop better customer relations based from loyalty and trust. Blogging is an innovative way to converse with your customers.
TRACKBACK. This helps in maximizing company and product exposure. Through this service, consumers can get back to you for more posts and updates without the difficulty of locating you. If your blog is popular in a specific online community chances are links going back to your blog site are everywhere online, other blog sites or even websites.
CATEGORIES AND TAGS. These both help in classifying blog searches for ease of navigation and on site search. Categories act as libraries because it classifies posts by subject matter such as business, distance learning, e-commerce, online auctions, etc. Tags, help in the classification, especially in the blog search engine Technorati. Possible customers and new clients locate blogs about certain topics of interest by just clicking the tags.
RSS FEED. Really Simple Syndication is the feed from your blog that is sent out over the internet, and collected through the various newsreaders and aggregators.


If your company is to establish a business blogging program, considerable options should be made available by the hosting companies shortlisted for the services. Free blog hosting services are popular but they are much appropriate for individual online journals. Paid blog hosting services offer unlimited packages best for your company's needs. You may want to suggest checking out some blogs that use the host first, read and examine their layout and design. Another important thing to consider is a reliable technical support the host has.


After, choosing the blog host, a team should be ready to plan the design and structure of the blog: The team should:
? create a style that meets the needs of the audience;
? establish an open, credible tone;
? schedule weekly updating of blog - ideally, a few times a week;
? include weblinks of other website and blogs;
? blog post should be in the “first person;”
? focus on the business blog objective; and,
? maintain an honest, engaging conversational quality.


Remember, whatever the look, style and content found on your blog is a reflection of you and your company.

So, do not want to start your own MLM business? You are missing out half of your life .

Avoiding Impulse Spending  
ima Wed 11 Aug 2010 ima
ima
Answer these questions truthfully: 1.) Does your spouse or partner complain that you spend too much money? 2.) Are you surprised each month when your credit card bill arrives at how much more you charged than you thought you had? 3.) Do you have more shoes and clothes in your closet than you could ever possibly wear? 4.) Do you own every new gadget before it has time to collect dust on a retailer's shelf? 5.) Do you buy things you didn't know you wanted until you saw them on display in a store? If you answered “yes” to any two of the above questions, you are an impulse spender and indulge yourself in retail therapy. This is not a good thing. It will prevent you from saving for the important things like a house, a new car, a vacation or retirement. You must set some financial goals and resist spending money on items that really don't matter in the long run. Impulse spending will not only put a strain on your finances but your relationships, as well. To overcome the problem, the first thing to do is learn to separate your needs from your wants. Advertisers blitz us hawking their products at us 24/7. The trick is to give yourself a cooling-off period before you buy anything that you have not planned for. When you go shopping, make a list and take only enough cash to pay for what you have planned to buy. Leave your credit cards at home. If you see something you think you really need, give yourself two weeks to decide if it is really something you need or something you can easily do without. By following this simple solution, you will mend your financial fences and your relationships. 6VFTTM6F3J5V

Churning out eZine Content  
ima Tue 10 Aug 2010 ima
ima
Creating your own content can be a challenge if you publish your own online newsletter or eZine. However, regardless of any topic you are publishing on, types of contents can be generally divided into four categories, namely factual content, short tips, mini stories and case studies. Other than writing your own content, you can get your own unique content the quick and easy way by organizing an interview with an expert or leader in the topic. Very often, this can be done for free and since the interviewee is writing out most of the content, there is nothing else for you to do other than giving the interviewee something valuable in exchange (maybe a meal!). Now if you have money to spare, you can hire a ghostwriter to write your content for you without taking any credit. Recommended professional marketplaces where you can seek ghostwriters include http://www.elance.com/ and http://www.rentacoder.com/. Another little known and underused method in getting your own content is via public domains. If you are not familiar with the term "public domain", "public domain" simply means anything that is NOT protected under US copyright law. This includes ALL works published before 1923 and, under certain conditions, works published up to 1978. And in this case, we are referring “works” to written materials such as reports, articles and books. Republishing and repackaging public domain information can help you save time and effort from creating new ideas and content as they are readily available. On top of that, you do not have to pay royalties or copyright fees on that work. If you fancy the idea of publishing content without any writing on your part, this method is for you.

Deciding the Nature of Your eZine  
ima Tue 10 Aug 2010 ima
ima
When choosing a topic to publish your eZine on, you must consider some important success factors that can determine the flow and goal of your eZine. You are encouraged to write non-time sensitive contents such as short tips, mini stories and interviews. Doing so enables you to create content in advance so that you can conveniently dispense to your subscribers at a later schedule. Topic-wise, you will do well to cater to a starving market that will always be on demand for the kind of content you offer. And by this, I mean that you should zero in onto a demand that has been, is and will always be there. Relationships and dating are niches that have been on Earth long before the World Wide Web came up, for example. The food niche will always be there as long as there are chefs cooking for anyone with a stomach to fill. Having said that, you also want to have a steady stream of products or services of your own or an affiliate for you can endorse to your mailing list and make even more money. This is also the reason why the Internet Marketing niche will remain one of the hottest niches there is, as products and services are created almost around the clock. As long as there Internet Businesses cropping out, there will always be needs to be fulfilled.

Publishing Your eZine – the Cons  
ima Tue 10 Aug 2010 ima
ima
As with any other types of businesses, publishing your own online newsletter a.k.a. eZine has its share of drawbacks, in spite of the several benefits it offer. The purpose of this article is not to scare you away with the disadvantages of publishing your own eZine, as the benefits are often more attractive. However, I will also show you how you can easily tackle the cons. One obvious challenge most beginning eZine publishers face is the creation of eZine content. Creating your own content can be tiresome, especially if you are not a gifted writer and that you run out of ideas every so often that your publishing schedule is threatening you. A way of taking care of this problem is to create your content in advance. You can compile 30 days worth of content in one day, for example. If you are not blessed with writing skills, you can broker the writing task to capable freelance writers which you can find at places such as http://www.elance.com/ or http://www.rentacoder.com/. While you need to pay for such services, you are at liberty to take the credit for written articles. Alternatively, you can republish articles from article directories such as http://ezinearticles.com/. This is a free method you can use in making content, provided you include the resource box of the original author and that the article has republishing rights conveyed. In conclusion, you can easily tackle the content creation challenge using the mentioned methods that do not require writing on your part, free or paid.

Which One is More Important – Product or Mailing List?  
ima Tue 10 Aug 2010 ima

If you would ask this question, “Which one is more important – the mailing list or the product?” any savvy marketer would answer you, “The mailing list”.

Principally, any wise business person puts the importance of hungry demand (and not just any demand) in front of the product. In other words, there is no product if there is no demand! And a mailing list represents the demand or your business if you would like to call it.

If you frequent the Joint Venture forums and membership sites of any kind, you will find that product and service owners need mailing list owners more than the other way round. This is because the mailing list owners have the prospects that the other type of partner is looking for to sell to.

And if you are a mailing list owner, you do not have to necessarily make money from selling your own product. You can sell advertising space or craft a Joint Venture with product owners in return of commissions, recurring or not.

Most of the biggest success web businesses on the Internet today often establish the mailing list (or subscribers) first before the product. One fine example is Friendster.com.

Friendster.com, in the nutshell, is a website that connects friends and potential friends from around the world through a free membership access.

While Friendster.com does not make money from the number of members who join the site, the business makes money from selling advertising space and partnering with other big time merchants and businesses, owing to the established number of members Friendster.com has recruited.

This business is perfect example that demonstrates why every business should establish a need or demand before the product itself, and why you should do the same, whether you run a friends site or not.

Mailing List for Affiliate Marketers  
ima Tue 10 Aug 2010 ima
ima



If you are an affiliate marketer who wants to make a comfortable living from referring your prospects to other people's product or service for decent commissions, then you must consider building your own mailing list.

Building your mailing list of hungry prospects can be one of the best investments you will ever make, as it is time and effort worth spending on. When you strike on a Joint Venture and have a new product or service to endorse, you can look no further than your own mailing list.

Granted, that most affiliates, as in more than 90 percent of them, are not making money from affiliate programs, but this often results from the same amount of effort focused on least effective methods.

While having your own mailing list is, by a long mile, not the only effective affiliate marketing method, you can make affiliate sales very quickly even in the next few hours after sending a sales message, provided that your mailing list is huge and responsive.

This is often true, because owning your own mailing list for you to endorse products and services to is one of the fastest-producing results, beating other affiliate marketing methods imaginable.

In a nutshell, the affiliate marketer who gets ahead of the pack is the one who owns a huge and responsive mailing list of prospects.

Making Money from Selling Advertising Space  
ima Tue 10 Aug 2010 ima

If you want to make an interesting business case study you can gather valuable information just by watching the company that delivers the newspaper to your doorstep. You will discover that the newspaper publisher employs reporters,writers and other important personnel in order to create interesting contents and print the papers for the readers to enjoy. In addition to that the publisher needs to invest a lot of money in tons of papers and heavy printing presses almost on a daily basis. Our publisher has to make sure that the newspapers are delivered on time to thousands of readers all over the country and for this reason he needs to appoint agents at every point of the covered territory. It's obvious that the publisher cannot make any profits or fund his operations by selling the paper at one dollar each. Then, how does the newspaper make money? Here is the answer: by selling advertising spaces! I am sure that you have seen tons and tons of ads in the press. The publisher simply sells advertising space to advertisers who want to leverage their advertising campaign on the paper's high readership. By the same token, you could make money in the same manner from your newsletters by simply selling advertising space to prospective advertisers. Let's say that you have a mailing list of at least 5000 subscribers: You could very easily start selling them ads space for $10 dollars a piece. In this way, you can turn every issue you send out to your subscribers into a non stop profit pulling machine getting ads from an endless stream of new products and services surfacing on the internet. If you would observe the company that delivers the daily paper to your doorstep for a business case study, you will come to learn that the newspaper publisher hires reporters, writers and other important staff to create the contents and deliver the papers to their readers. In addition to the above mention, the publisher has to invest regularly in heavy duty machineries and tons of papers in printing tons of newspapers on a daily basis. And in order to ensure that the newspapers are delivered on time, the publisher appoints agents at every part of the covered territory. So, how does the newspaper company make money? It is obvious that selling a copy of the papers at less than a dollar would not even be able to even fund the operations. The answer? Selling advertising spaces! You have definitely seen lots of advertisements in the newspaper. The publisher simply sells advertising space in the papers to advertisers who want to leverage their advertising efforts on the paper's high readership. On the same analogy, you can make money the exact way from your newsletter: simply by selling advertising space to prospective advertisers! If your mailing list size exceeds 1,000 (5,000 is recommended) subscribers and beyond, you can start selling advertising space for say, $10.00 per sponsor ad. In this manner, you turn every issue you send out to your subscribers into a profit-pulling device. And since there is virtually no end to the stream of advertisers as products, services and businesses are cropping every single day in every industry imaginable, so are your money making opportunities.

Why Publish an eZine?  
ima Tue 10 Aug 2010 ima
ima



On the Internet, it is very possible to make money without selling any product. One way of doing so is through starting your own eZine, also known as an electronic newsletter.

In a nutshell, you send out your eZine issues on a periodical basis to your subscribers. The good part is that you have a flexible choice in automating the process of sending out your eZine issues for you or manually sending them on a periodical basis.

As an eZine publisher, not only can you easily achieve the benefits a conventional newsletter publisher enjoys without having to chop down several trees in the process, you can easily and conveniently spread your marketing influence and expertise to your base of subscribers from the shoes of an ordinary individual.

In other words, you do not have to invest in expensive printing equipment, brick and mortar business, and hiring staff just to run your own newsletter publication, resulting in a lot of time, money and effort saved.

Basically, all you need to start your own eZine are an auto responder and broadcast feature to go with, enabling you to reach out to your massive subscribers whom you can regard as your prospects, too.

All in all, if you do not have the commitments of creating your own product for sale, then publishing your own online newsletter can be one of the wisest decisions you will ever make, given the benefits of impressive marketing power and influence it can offer to you.

Using Adsense Ready Sites  
ima Mon 9 Aug 2010 ima
ima
Adsense ready sites are websites that are ready for you to upload to your server and start making money on right away. While they vary from package to package, most have similar features.

For instance, Adsense ready sites should be already search engine optimized. That means that they have custom meta tags, H1 tags, and title tags. They should also have a Google sitemap and approved Privacy Policy as part of the package.

Then there are the ads themselves. Adsense ready sites should allow you to input your Adsense code and have fully working ads ready to go. Many also allow you to make money off of a paypal referral program as well.

Each page should have a static file name. And, the pages should cross link to each other to maximize their SEO value.

The sites have a full array of graphics already loaded into them that are perfect for the theme.

Some Adsense ready sites come complete with articles. For others, you have to write the content yourself. Still others randomly pull content from RSS feeds and from article directories so that the visitor will have a fresh experience each time. Make sure you know exactly what you are getting before buying an Adsense ready site.

In addition to supporting Google's Adsense program, some Adsense ready sites have other monetization methods. For instance, many incorporate products from the popular Clickbank site which also requires a simple sign up rather than approval for each product you promote.

Some producers of Adsense ready sites provide extra services as well. For instance, for an additional fee, you can have the producer install the site for you or submit your site to many directories. Others include step by step written or video instructions.

Generally, producers give away bonuses as well. Sometimes these are extra sites (“buy 10, get 2 free”), ebooks on marketing, software, or coupons for free pay per click advertising.

You can find individual made for Adsense sites as well as packages with 400 or more sites in one download. Some are free while others will cost you a small amount. One producer who is selling 425 Adsense ready sites charges $147 for the complete package which includes many with articles already on them.

Know that when you buy sites that are being sold to a large number of people, it leaves a large “footprint.” That means that the search engines will not rank them as highly. As a result, you will have to drive traffic in other ways such as article marketing or forum marketing.

Alternatively, you can take the site as a base and do a significant amount of modifications to reduce its footprint. This of course is my personal choice, because it will save you a nice amount of work and by taking the time to make a few customizations you will end up with a nice collection of sites that will rank better and bring in more revenue for you.

Tips to increase your Adsense Income  
ima Mon 9 Aug 2010 ima
ima
- Limit your Adsense blocks to one per page.

While you might think that multiple ads mean multiple ways to increase your Google Adsense money, what really happens is that lower value ads are placed on your site. If the visitor is going to click, you want him to click on a high value ad.

- Use multiple formats.

The main Ads by Google block is great, but it is only one of three formats. The other two are the text link ad (which you can make look like your navigation bar) and the Google search tool. Using one of each of these formats does not violate rule #1.

- Place a large rectangle above the fold.

The best way to format a page is to have your headline followed by a large Adsense block. Start the keyword-rich article down below.

- Have content rich sites.

You should try to have at least three phrases on each page that Google can “grab a hold of” to make ad placements. One of the quickest ways to lose your shirt is for Google to not be able to place any ads and display public service ads instead.

- If you want to make Google Adsense money, you have got to chase higher paying keywords.

As you build websites, you will find that some Adsense clicks are only worth a penny or two while others bring in a couple of dollars. Highly competitive high dollar industries like insurance and personal injury law tend to be best.

When in doubt, use the Google Adwords keyword tool to determine whether advertisers in the industry are spending a large amount per click.

- Generate more traffic to your site.

If you have a click through rate of 10 percent, you know that 10 percent of all new visitors who come to your site will make you money. So, go out and entice more people to your site. It will make you more Google Adsense income.

- Test, test test.

All of the above are suggestions based on “best practices” that other people have observed. But to make real Google Adsense money, you've got to test things out yourself.

Change the colors on the ads and see whether that affects your click through rate. Move the ads around on the page. Try different size ads. Then, when you find a format that works, stick with it.

Google Adsense can be a profitable way to increase the revenue from your websites. Just keep in mind that you have to treat it as a business.

In most cases, blogging about your life won't bring you much in the way of Adsense income. While even earning a few dollars for keeping an online diary appeals to some, if you want to make a business out of being a Google Adsense publisher, you have to take it seriously.

That means chasing the high value keywords, developing Adsense friendly websites, and driving traffic to them. You have to test to make sure everything is producing as well as it can.

The Different Types of Google Adsense Ads  
ima Mon 9 Aug 2010 ima
ima
There are a variety of Google Adsense Sizes. You can have banner ads or small squares. You can also have text links, video units, or search units. The size of your Google Adsense ad can impact how much money you make from it. Some publishers favor large rectangles while others place a single small square on their pages. Some opt for images while others want only text links. There are a whole variety of options. This article looks at Google Adsense sizes.

First, let's look at the Google Adsense sizes for ad units. The 720 x 90 leader board is similar to the Banner ads that were so popular in the 2000 to 2002 (pre dot bomb) era. In fact, if you use this size and enable images, you may get an actual banner some of the time. Other horizontal Google Adsense sizes are 486 x 60 and 234 x 60 half banner.

Next, we'll examine the vertical Google Adsense sizes. There are two towers – one is a 120 x 600 skyscraper and the other is a slightly thicker 160 x 600 skyscraper. In this category, you also get the 120 x 240 vertical banner.

Then, there are six kinds of squares. The largest is the 336 x 280 large rectangle. Many publishers have found this particular Google Adsense size's ad to be their best performing.

Other squares include the 300 x 250 medium rectangle, the 250 x 250 square, the 200 x 200 small square, 180 x 150 small rectangle and the 125 x 125 small square.

The small sizes display only one ad. If you are going to use these and no other units, you may find that your clicks have a higher payout than average.

But don't overlook the other Adsense properties in favor of the more traditional Adsense for Content units. For instance, there link units that come in six Google Adsense sizes and feature four or five links.

Additionally, there is a recently improved Adsense for Search ad feature. This allows you to place a Google search bar on your web site. If people click on that and then click on the ads on the page it generates, you get a fraction of the money.

There's also Adsense for Feeds. If you have a feed burner account, it is easy to add ads to your RSS.

If you have domains just sitting around not being used, add Adsense for Domains to your parked sites and make money off of them.

You can place videos from You tube on your site and make money from them using Adsense Video units.

Finally, if your website is set up so that mobile units can access them, placing Adsense for Mobile Content can bring you another revenue stream.

As you can see there are a variety of Google Adsense sizes and programs. Figuring out which ones will make you the most money is part of the job of every Adsense publisher.

Don't just try the one that “looks best” with your page. Keep in mind that testing various sizes is part and parcel of what internet marketers do. So, test all of the Google Adsense sizes. And remember if you are having trouble understanding the different ad options available to you Google has extensive help files and forums that you can use to get help.

Raising your online income with Google Adsense  
ima Mon 9 Aug 2010 ima
ima
Just in case you haven't heard about Adsense, it is the program that Google uses to place ads from their Adwords program on individual publisher's sites. These ads are contextually related meaning that wedding ads appear on wedding sites and fishing ads appear on fishing sites. If you already have a website or blog, it is not hard to start making money with Adsense. Adsense is a “fix and forget” residual income system. You simply copy and paste the code (which is quite simple to do) that the program provides you with and you can receive income as long as people visit your site and click on the ads. When it comes to placing advertising on your site pages there are different options. You could sell or trade ad space or use banners from different affiliate programs and it would probably make you some money. But, did you know that there are people who earn in excess of 100.000 dollars a year just by using Adsense? Please keep in mind that a 100 thousand a year is not the average income of every user. In fact there is probably a much higher percentage of people that make little or nothing with this program. So the big question is, it really worth your time to place Adsense ads on your site? The answer is a definite yes. Especially if your site is already receiving a fair amount of traffic to your website. This can be in the form of a heavily visited blog or website or having dozens or hundreds of sites that get a trickle of traffic. The real game is getting the numbers whether it is to one site or many. It's completely free to join the Adsense program and it almost takes no time. The potential database of websites from AdWords is larger than anything you might encounter from any competitor, numbering over 150.000 users. This means as more people compete the CPC or cost per click for search terms will inevitably rise. Also, setting up Adsense on your site is a breeze, and you can complete the whole process in less than an hour. It takes a lot less to do then any form of affiliate advertising which is yet another reason to choose the easy Adsense approach. All you need to do is add an Adsense banner on your website (other then registering with the program of course) is to copy & paste a few lines and you're all done, you get to choose where the banners go, how large they are and how they integrate with the rest of your site. For any webmaster out there, that's a killer scheme because it lets you draw the line between your site's usability level and the amount of advertising you wish to have. Some people need the money badly while others just keep Adsense running to pay for the hosting of their website. Adsense is a great advertising program because a lot of thought has went into making it "just work for everyone". It works great for the people who use AdWords, for the webmasters using Adsense , and most importantly for the visitors of the websites.
