How To Find A Good Domain Name On The Secondary Market

You had a great idea for a new website and you immediately hurried off to search for a domain name at a registrar like GoDaddy or Namecheap…only to find you can’t come up with a related domain name that’s actually available.

Aweber Email List Setup

Ok, if you’ve browsed around the web and learned anything at all about internet marketing, you’ve surely come across the phrase “the money is in the list!” I can’t even begin to count how many websites I’ve read that on or how many times I’ve heard it in some video. But guess what? It’s true! Sure, you can make money without building a list, but take a look at just about any major website that sells something. Most of them are going to have some type of form where you can sign up to get...

WordPress 3.0 Is Here, But Don’t Upgrade Just Yet

Posted by on 1:27 pm in WordPress | 0 comments

WordPress 3.0 has just been released and is jam-packed full of a bunch of great new features. One of the biggest new features in my opinion is a much improved custom navigation area that offers extreme flexibility in setting up your navigation menus. Also, the default WordPress theme has finally been retired and replaced with a new theme called Twenty Ten that actually looks pretty darn nice. I’m not saying it’s going to replace all the premium themes on the market (it’s not), but it will work very nicely for bloggers who...

Will User Opt-Out Be the Death of Google Analytics?

Posted by on 9:26 am in Traffic and SEO | 1 comment

Just a few days ago, Google announced they will soon be releasing a plugin to allow users to opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics. I don’t know about you but as a webmaster I think any website analytics program with user opt-out is completely insane. It is the webmaster, not the user, who decides what type of analtyics program to place on their website so why would Google want to alienate webmasters by taking away from them the very thing they are wanting. Won’t this discourage webmasters from using GA? Think about...

It’s usually a different color than the other text and may be underlined, although not always. The actual words being used to create the link are called the anchor text. This text...
