Quality Link Building Program

I just joined this newly launched program to build unlimited incoming links to my blog. I can see the potential of the prgram. When you join the program, you can build quality (dofollow) backlinks to your blog. Compare to nofollow links, dofollow backlinks will boost your blog's page rank. (note: dofollow and nofollow links both looks identical when display in browser, the difference is how the search engine spider index the link)

What really amazed me is the program is FREE to join and also you can increase your google adsense earnings at the same time. In order to get more quality backlinks, what you need to do is just contribute more contents to the program. The more you provide, the more backlinks you'll get.

Google Adsense Earnings (Monetized your blog)

If you are a blogger and want to monetized your blog, your first choice will definitely be Google Adsense. I believe Adsense is the no. 1 choice for most of us. Why Adsense is no. 1? In fact i also do not know. Maybe due to Google's branding ? Due to google's pioneer in online advertising ?

But, am i really making money from google adsense ? How about you ? Are you making good money from adsense ?

Below is my screenshot:

Today's earnings is $38.93. Not bad right ? In fact this is not real for me now. It is just a fake screenshot. You can make your own from Google Adsense Generator.

Switch to Google Chrome

If you are using gmail alot, then i recommend you to switch to google chrome. Google recommends google chrome instead of IE7 when accessing Gmail since it will give you quite a boost in speed by using google chrome. Some of the features of chrome include tabbed browsing where each tab gets its own process, leading to faster and more stable browsing. If one tab crashes, the whole browser doesn’t go down with it (IE will crash browser totally if one tab crash). Also, there is a useful malware and phishing lists that automatically update themselves and warn you of bad websites.

You can get your free copy of chrome here.

Download Free Antivirus

Want to get some free antivirus software instead of paying any cost from $100 to few hundreds bucks? Many people may not realise they can get a fully functioning antivirus just for free.

AVG - one of the popular free antivirus that is easy to install and configure. Regular updates are available as well. One of my preference antivirus.

Kaspersky online virus scanner is a great way to find out if you have any viruses or spyware on your machine without having to uninstall your current antivirus software or install a new one. Most importantly, you can see what viruses your current antivirus software let slip through!

Web 2.0 apps and Hackers

Nowadays, web 2.0 apps are gaining popularity in the world wide web. Some of the popular apps are Facebook, Google gmail, emusic, amazon, youtube, meebo.

How hackers targetting and attack web 2.0 apps? By Web 2.0, developers are focusing on XML-scripted transactions. I think that's a fairly commonly accepted piece of the definition. Fundamentally, these are new collections of application capabilities for structured information or transaction exchange off a Web site. It's not just HTML anymore. Hackers can easily steal your valuable data like credit cards info via web 2.0 apps. We take facebook as an example, when we accepted an apps from facebook, means we have to accept their terms&conditions to allow the apps to collect our data, before we can really start using it. By doing this, in fact you are permitting the apps to gather your info.

In site like myspace & youtube, there are significants amount of user contributed data. Hackers can easily embed malware in their content! This can be done easily.

So, how to protect yourself against all these malware ? i think first you need to do is stop downloading from unknown source, if really need to download only get it from trusted source. Also, get yourself a copy of antivirus and enable it.

Compare Web 1.0 & Web 2.0
Web 1.0 = Read Only, static data with simple markup
Web 2.0 = Read/Write, dynamic data through web services

Link Building

This article came from Dave Davies.

Link building is an essential ingredient in ranking your website highly on the major search engines. There, now that we’ve got that brilliant grasp of the obvious out of the way let’s move on to what you can do to actually create them. Before we launch into the nitty-gritty of link building, no beginners guide would be complete without a brief explanation as to why links are important and the different elements of them. Being a beginners guide this won’t be an entirely complete líst but it will be enough to get you going on the right path. Understanding what you’re trying to do will help you do it better and more importantly, understanding the “why” of the situation will help you stretch your tactics outside of this and other articles on link building.

Why Are Links Important?

To put it simply: a link is a vote. Every link pointing to your site from another website tells the search engines that the other site finds your resource valuable and thus, the engines read this as a vote for your site. So it must be about getting tons of links and you’re done right? Wrong. This is incorrect as …

Not All Votes Are Created Equal

Unlike your vote in an election, some votes are worth more than others and some votes are worth SIGNIFICANTLY more than yours (unless of course you’re a content writer for the domain in which case you obviously have the top vote). The basic factors that affect a link’s value to your website are:

The site strength – the strength of the site that is pointing to yours is a significant (and historically abused) factor in the valuation of links. In the absence of other easily-visible criteria let’s look at PageRank as a key valuation of a site’s strength. If a site with a PageRank 8 links to your site, this vote is worth significantly more than a link from a PageRank 3 site. This is because a PageRank 8 site is, in Google’s eyes, a more important site than the PageRank 3 site.

Relevance – the relevance of a site linking to you is, if anything, more important than a site’s strength. If you run a bed and breakfast in Utah, a link from a PageRank 3 bed and breakfast will be worth more than a link from a PageRank 5 web design site. This area is a bit grey in that it relies on the engine’s ability to determine what is relevant and what is not. However, we’ve seen evidence that this area is strong at this stage in the game and is only becoming more important over time.

Anchor text – the actual text used to link to your site is extremely important. I’ve seen extremely strong sites get beaten out by weak ones simply due to the poor use of anchor text. If you’re building links to your site, be sure to include your keywords in the text that links back and, if possible, the exact phrase you are trying to rank for. At the same time, you can’t make all your anchor text exactly the same – how can that possibly look natural?

Position – the position of a link on a page and the number of other links on that page impacts the value of a link. A link in the footer of a page is given less weight than a link near the top, a link in the content of a page is given more weight than a link in a list of links and a link on a page with 50 other links is given less weight than a link on a page with only a few other links. If we think about it – this makes sense. All of these things indicate whether the site with the outbound links actually intends for one of their visitors to click the link or not. From an engine’s perspective – the more it appears that a site wants a link to be clicked on, the higher the weight that link (or vote) is given.

Admittedly there are a number of other factors but this is a beginners guide. Following the considerations above will insure that as you make each link decision – your odds of making the right choices will be significantly higher than if you ignore them. Ignoring them may not get you penalized or banned, but it will make your task far more time consuming as you secure less valuable links and thus need to build far more than following the right methods.

So far we’ve covered briefly the why of link building, now let’s get into the real-life, here’s-how-to-do-it side of things. Below I’m going to cover three of my favorite link building tactics. These are tactics that apply to virtually every scenario. The number of ways to build links is only limited by your imagination, however, and this should not be viewed as a comprehensive líst. This is, after all, a beginners guide and I’m trying to list the tactics that apply to virtually every scenario.

Side Note: Reciprocal Link Building

I’m not going to count this as one of my favorites and so it won’t count as one of the three noted above and I’ll only touch on it briefly. There have been a number of assertions that reciprocal link building is dead. This is simply not the case. I have seen and competed against sites that were very successful with reciprocal links as their primary link source.

The problem with reciprocal links isn’t so much in their value which does seem to be a bit lower than non-reciprocal links however often more easily attained. No, my problem with reciprocal links is in the management. Unethical webmasters’ removing links after you’ve put the link up to them, sites expiring and not being renewed, sites getting penalties of their own due to their bad tactics are all inconveniences the reciprocal link manager must deal with.

As an SEO company, a huge issue we faced was leaving our clients with this task after a campaign was over if they decided not to go on a maintenance package. Non-reciprocal links may be a bit harder to attain in some cases, however, that issue is much easier to overcome than the sum of all these issues.

And now on to the top three …


If you’re paying attention as you read this, you’ll probably have guessed that I’m a fan of article writing as a link building method. If you look to the “about the author” section you’ll notice a link to the Beanstalk site (and if you don’t, well … let me know as somebody’s stealing it without permission). While I genuinely enjoy writing and sharing my experiences with others – the purpose of getting the article distributed is primarily as a link building tactic, secondarily as a great source of qualified traffic and thirdly for my own enjoyment.

You are an expert in your field. Who knows more about your business than you? So share. Writing an article may not be easy, but it is rewarding. If you can’t think of a topic, think of what you get asked. If you’re asked common questions repeatedly then chances are, it’s a good topic for an article. I often get asked about link building, and you’re reading the result.

Once the article is completed you need to get it syndicated. Using an article submission service such as Article Sender is a simple way to get your article out to a large number of publishers quickly. On top of this you’d do well to seek out specific sites in your field using one or all of the major search engines to find highly relevant sites that accept articles and submit to them.

And oh, don’t forget an “about the author” section.

Directory Submissions

Directory submissions are likely the most painful of the link building tactics you’ll employ. Why? Because it’s tedious and time-consuming work.

To be done right directory submissions must be done manually. The titles and descriptions must be tailored to the specifications of the directory in question and often, you’ll have to decide if a review fee is worth it.

While there are a good many directories that accept free submissions there are also a large number that require a review fee. The fee can range from a few dollars to a few hundred. If you see that a directory has a low PageRank, is general in it’s nature (i.e. it isn’t about your specific field) then it likely isn’t worth more than a couple dollars if that. If the site is strong, and strongly related to your site then it’s obviously worth more.

There is no hard-and-fast set of rules for how much a listíng is worth. I’d recommend to start your hunt for directoríes (don’t forget the topic and/or region specific ones), submit to all the free ones and make a líst of all the ones that require a fee. After you’ve gotten a solid number in your “need to be paid list” you can get a general idea as to what’s out there and what you can get and for how much. This will enable you to make solid choices knowing what all your options are.

Forum Posting

I just know I’m going to get a couple comments and/or emails for listing this as a link building tactic, but if it’s done right, there’s nothing wrong with it. Forum and blog posting got a bad reputation as a link building tactic when it came under huge abuse by unethical webmasters spamming forums with useless garbage just for a link. They even went so far (and still do) as sending out spiders to automatically submit posts. To this end, I have to agree that it’s a bad tactic, however …

If you’re seeking out forums related to your site, reading the threads and responding with solid advice or with questions and not just firing off some sales-pitch, then you’re doing what you’re supposed to be. Another perk to this is that, like articles, if you do this right, you’re gong to see traffic as well and what more can you ask from a link building tactic than traffic as well as links.

Cuil and google

What is CUIL? Cuil is an old Irish word for knowledge. In fact it is the latest search engine that searches more pages on the Web than anyone else— three times as many as Google and ten times as many as Microsoft. Founders of the search engine are Tom Costellor, Anna Patterson and Russell Power. They were architect and technical lead at google. I believe with their experiences, they can do better in cuil.

According to their website, the search result will be shown in columns instead of rows.

Here is the link to submit your site to cuil: cuil. I just submitted mine, let's wait and see.

NOTE: it may take a week to start showing up your website in their search.

Burger King vs Facebook ?

Burger King has introduced a new Facebook application that is getting lots of attention – “Whopper Sacrifice.” The concept is essentially this: delete 10 of your Facebook friends and get a free Whopper. Each time you remove someone from Facebook, that action is broadcast to your news feed – apparently, not a big deal to users so far, as more than 157,833 friends have already been sacrificed.

Friendship is strong, but Whopper is STRONGER. With the current economy situation, i believe peoples are willing to sacrifice some "friends" to get a whopper. How about you? Will you trade 10 of your friends in Facebook for a whopper?

Windows 7 Beta - Free Download

Microsoft released its Windows 7 Beta free for download. Windows 7 (formerly known as Blackcomb and Vienna) has been widely anticipated since developers got the first glimpse of it at a Microsoft conference. Microsoft promises that the new OS with name Windows 7 will have faster startup and shutdown times, fewer security alerts, and will provide better power management leading to improved battery life on laptops.

Microsoft showed off Windows 7's support for multitouch interfaces, simplified home networking, and easier management of peripheral devices such as cell phones and digital cameras. In addition, the OS will have an updated Taskbar, new animated desktop effects, context-sensitive menus and a smarter desktop search tool. And it will be good enough to run on a notebook with as little as 1GB of RAM and a 1GHz processor, Microsoft has promised.
