    Even though changes have occurred with Google AdWords, it is still a formidable tool in your marketing arsenal if you understand it and know how to use it the right way. You’ll find the entire range of experiences with Adwords, but the most dangerous phase is when you’re new and inexperienced. You’ll feel much more confident when you actually produce your first profitable Adwords campaign. However, if you haven’t ever tried your hand at AdWords and are new to it, things can look confusing, which might lead to some costly mistakes that affect your overall marketing budget. Next we’ll go over 3 commonly seen mistakes when using Adwords, learn about them and keep learning to have success.

    One thing to keep in mind about Adwords and mistakes – some of them seem to become magnified and it’ll only be downhill from there. This usually occurs when you’re trying to juggle too many things at a time without doing proper home work. But it doesn’t always have to end up with such mistakes. As maybe you can guess, there are very many marketers who are making excellent returns with Adwords. Profitable campaigns have longevity, they’re around for months and months – so study them the best you can. Study how they do it by learning from their ad copy, landing page design and copy, and anything else. Analyze and research your competition and see what different they’re doing than you. It can take some time because sometimes it’s hard to know who is succeeding and who isn’t. Ads that don’t run very long are obviously unsuccessful campaigns. You can follow the same approach seen in successful ads, but you should avoid just copying someone elses ads. If you have the right strategy, you can realize almost an instant change in your campaign’s performance.

    Displaying your ads through the content network of Google is another common mistake. Through a Program called AdSense, this network of partnering websites, shows their Google ads. These un-targeted sites could prove very distracting for people viewing your ad. In the end you may even achieve a high click through rate, but you will probably find that your conversion rate is low. So not turning the content network off will lead to large amount of money spend on ads, with a poor return on investment, which is the last thing you want. Tracking your ads can also be difficult, which means it is harder for you. So always remember to turn the content network off before you start a campaign. The ads that appear in the Google search and its partners should be your only focus.

    Another common mistake is using to many keywords in one ad group. It is no ones fault but your own if you are not testing the success rate of each keyword. Only the best keywords will get the clicks and the less popular won’t get many. There will then be confusion, since you are unable to determine which keywords are receiving the clicks. The under-performing wrods can then be easily eliminated, if you keep your words per ad group to a minimum.

    Making these mistakes can make your AdWords campaign unsuccessful, so be sure to avoid them.

    Posted on September 24th, 2011 seolinkvine No comments

    Some people are not yet aware of how virtual and Web Development works. The thing that they only know is that it is quite possible to earn money and have a stable supply of financial needs using the internet. These people understood about posting weblogs and earning traffic to be able to sustain the needs of the site and for future promotion. However they aren’t yet fully aware using the significance of purchasing or purchasing their own domain name.

    Having your own domain name may be the number one requirement if you want to start a virtual business. It is important for anybody to know the importance and significance of having domain names. It would be impossible to launch your own virtual business without having a domain name. The domain name of a particular site is actually the choice of the people. It is through domain names that the visitor will know how to locate you and your page.

    Domain name registry is a basic step in launching or possessing your own domain name. Since duplication of domain names over the internet is not allowed and prohibited you need to sign-up it on any domain name registry to verify and validate that you are by using their specific domain name and it must be registered under your name of ownership.

    In such manner you and your domain name is going to be protected from any forms of crook or fraud. Aside from the possession thingy you need to undergone domain name registry because it is the final step in launching your own website. You can never start with your business without the approval of domain name registry.

    Unfortunately there aren’t any alternative ways aside from domain name registry. It is a must that you register your own domain name. Registering your own domain name is actually not a difficult thing to do once you have already completed things that are needed. You can however surf and read the internet for more details. Even the domain name registry has their own website that you should know more about the things that you need to prepare.

    It is also important that you have fully understood the terms and conditions of the domain name registry before signing any form of documents. There are other people who are using other people’s property when it comes to this business. You should see to it that you are dealing with the safe people. Another thing that you should never forget upon coping with the domain registry is you should be sure enough that the domain name that you want to register has not yet already been taken by other people. when you failed to assure this matter you will be requested to find an additional domain name and it will only cause you additional time and effort in doing so. Visit this site http://www.Domain-Name-Registry.Org so you can find out more about domain names registration.

  • The Gold-to-Silver Ratio: Why It’s Important, What It’s Telling Us Today

    Posted on August 5th, 2011 Profit Confidential No comments

    By Michael Lombardi, MBA

    What the gold-to-silver ratio is, why it's important and what it's telling us today.

    ~ reporting from Venice, Italy

    I often write about gold bullion in my commentaries, but not much about silver. And my readers are writing asking me what I think about silver. As usual, I’m happy to present my ideas and forecasts.

    Right up front, I want to say I’m more biased towards gold than silver as an investment. I’ve been pushing gold since 2002. At that time, I started getting concerned about spiraling U.S. debt and the increase in the money supply.

    My thought has always been: if the validity of the U.S. dollar ever comes into play, gold will be the currency of choice. Not silver. I can see the government eventually forced into a situation where U.S. dollars again will be partially backed by gold bullion. I can’t see U.S. dollars backed by silver.

    On the other hand, silver is used in many different industries, whereas gold is still primarily used in jewelry and as an investment-related commodity. And, as the economy in China continues to boom, as we believe it will, demand for silver for industrial use will continue to rise, pushing up silver prices.

    Gold prices are up about 13% this year compared to a 29% increase in the price of silver so far in 2011. Silver is actually outpacing gold in terms of price appreciation this year.

    The gold-to-silver ratio works like this: we take the current price of gold and divide it by the current price of silver. Historically, over two centuries, the gold-to-silver ratio has been 37-to-1. Today, it sits at 40-to-1.

    What does this tell me? It tells me that silver is not cheap in respect to gold, but it is not overvalued compared to gold either. It also tells me something else.

    Investing in gold—my gold advice: my prediction, as expressed in these pages over recent years, is for gold bullion to reach $3,000 per ounce before the bull market in the metal is over. If I apply the historic 37-to-1 gold-to-silver ratio, silver should be trading at $81.00 an ounce if gold reaches $3,000 an ounce. Hence, we are looking at a doubling of the price of silver before the bull run in commodities is over.

    In short, silver is a good investment, not because of the increased demand for the metal in China, but because the metal has been riding gold’s bull market of the past 10 years. I expect it to continue doing so.

    There are several major silver producers traded on various stock exchanges. On silver price dips, I’d be a buyer of the major silver producer stocks, especially those listed on the TSX, Canada’s major stock exchange.

    Gold and silver will both rise on the back of a weaker U.S. dollar. American investors can enjoy the rise in the price of major silver-producing stocks in non-U.S. denominated dollars, providing Americans with a double whammy of stock price appreciation and profits on a currency play.

    What He Said:

    “Prepare for the worst economic period ahead that we have seen in years, my dear reader, as that is what I see coming. I’ve written over the past three years how, in the late 1920s, real estate prices fell first before the stock market and how I felt the same would happen this time. Home prices in the U.S. peaked in 2005 and started falling in 2006. The stock market is following suit here in 2008. Is a depression coming? No. How about a severe deflationary recession? Yes!” Michael Lombardi in PROFIT CONFIDENTIAL, January 21, 2008. Michael started talking about and predicting the economic catastrophe we began experiencing in 2008 long before anyone else.

  • google voice – One phone number, online voicemail, and enhanced call features

    Posted on July 17th, 2009 Dimakh 1 comment

    Google voice service is all set to be launched and take the internet telephony by storm. Google will now allow one number for all your calls and SMS. so no need of multiple phones and tracking for home, office and mobile. This service is provided by google free of cost and its the old GrandCentral, which google acquired in July of 2007 and is now providing the service free of cost. Google Voice is currently available by invite only . Get an Invite if you are interested in getting an invite for google voice. Please note that Google Voice is only available for sign up in the US. read more about google voice and its features from here.

    One number for all your calls and SMS

    Will we get this feature in India ? will we get google voice in India.  It would be worth the wait and I am sure telecom players like reliance, airtel, tata indicom would be gearing up for this.

    But this would be a good solution for Indian software companies and entrepreneurs in Indian cities like pune, bangalore, delhi etc to use this service to virtually stay in USA and get a mobile identity. SO for those who are doing international business and are looking for setting up office in USA, this would be a great help. But you many not be able to eliminate phone services providers like vonage, skype etc as you would still need a US number to use this google service.

    The Google voice is set to launch in the month of July in USA.

  • what is qik and how to make use of Qik – rotary club video clip

    Posted on March 28th, 2009 Dimakh 1 comment

    I recently came across Qik and was pretty impressed with the gadget website. The ease of using the technology and getting good quality results attracted me to try this out at different occasions and events. As a member of Rotary Club of Pune sports city, I take the initiative of implementing Technology innovations in our club. During the last meeting we had a Yoga teacher and a 2 times medal winner at national Yoga competition in India. You can view the clipping of her demonstration of Yoga which was appreciated by all the Rotary members who were present for the meeting.

    I used my Nokia E61i with Idea GPRS and was able to stream this live on to the web. Using Qik is very simple and I was able to configure my account and my handset in less than 5 mins.

    As per Qik’s website :-

    Share live video from your phone!

    Qik enables you to share your moments live with your friends, family and the world—right from your mobile phone! 

    The interesting features of Qik that liked were the capability of live chat with the user while the video was getting streamed, Large amount of handset were already compatible with Qik Viz. Nokia, samsung, iphone etc. You can also easily embed the video clips in your website or blogs. A good sharing capability with your friends over email or Qik with Facebook, qik with myspace, Digg it Ovi by Nokia , etc. You can also download the videos and keep it as archive offline. The attractive feature is also a capability of “public” or “Private” streaming which gives a control to the Qik user to decide what to make public and what to keep private.
