Why Paid Web host provider?

Many beginner webmasters may wounder why someone would pay for web hosting when there are free web host available. Free web host aren't the best idea if you plan to run a successful long term business on the internet. With free web hosting your site isn't guaranteed to be up and running, and many free host erase sites after they been running for so long, that it's self is bad. If you work to promote your free website, all that work will be for nothing when your site is erased, all them back links they mean nothing when there's no website. Another reason why you wouldn't want to build a website using a free server is because of the domain name, you don't get to pick your domain name with free server, it will be www.whatever.freehost.com instead of www.whatever.com. I think the Internet world gives more respect to a website that's got a good domain name.



There are always opportunities on the Internet, whether you promote your own product, you promote other;s products through affiliate programs, whatever your intent is upon building a website, I highly recommend you using a paid server. There are a ton of paid servers out there how to you know which ones best? It all depends on what you plan on doing. If you only need one website, you can find good hosting for $4 a month. If you need more than one there's web host that offer unlimited websites for $10 a month. There's a good page here Web Host Review This page reviews a number of the top web host providers for you.



I've been marketing on the Internet for some four years now, and when I fist started I thought it was not necessary to pay for web host. I had 3 or 4 website on a free server, I promoted them website the best I knew how, over the period of a year my websites where just starting to get a steady traffic flow, from a number of different promotional methods, my websites vanished one by one over a period of 6 months, it seems that server only kept sites up for 12 months after that there erased, I guess they do this to free space for new users. So any way all that work was for nothing because I had to re-due the whole website, and repromte it because it would have a new address.



In conclusion, what I've been trying to say is, don;t waste your time with free web hot servers, they suck. Pay the little monthly charge, and bring your business to the business level.

What is an Affiliate Program?

You've heard all about them... what exactly are they? Affiliate or associate programs (sometimes called reseller or partnership programs) are usually pay-per-sale marketing programs based on the concept of revenue sharing.



"What?" You say?



OK, I'll give it to you again ... in English!



This where companies selling products or services online give you a cut of their profits (a share in their revenue) as a commission on any sales you create for them (i.e. pay-per-sale) by introducing new customers.



Though commission rates offered to affiliates vary widely, they are all normally based on the gross value (usually the selling price) of the product or service concerned ...



... but watch out!



Some companies only pay you a percentage of their net profit after all deductions. That means they only pay you a percentage of what *they* decide is their profit after subtracting what *they* say are their costs ...



Hmm ... read the small print!



Affiliate programs have become very popular both with companies looking to increase sales and web sites wanting to generate some extra income. The first and most well known, Amazon.com has in excess of 100,000 members! Now hundreds of different programs from companies of all shapes and sizes compete for your attention ... so you can and should be choosey!



In most cases all you need to do in order to join one of these programs is:



* Agree to their terms and conditions * Provide your contact information * Advertise their products or services * Link to their site using the unique URLs they provide to identify you.



"Money for nothing and...."



Not all affiliate programs require a sale to be made for you to get paid. WebSponsors [ http://www.NowSell.com/websponsors ] for example, pay you when someone requests a free trial or sample of a product or service. This is a pay-per-lead program. You give them a lead and they pay you for it ...



... simple really! :-)



It's up to them to later convert the free trial into a sale. The commissions are smaller of course, but since the offers don't cost the surfer anything, conversion rates are higher. For this reason low traffic sites may find this kind of program preferable to the pay-per-sale type, which require you to send far more visitors to get a "sale."





All the clicks



There is another variant on the pay-per-lead model. This is the pay-per-click program. Here the company running the program pays you whenever someone clicks on their banner or link from your site. And guess what ...



... these programs pay you even less!



Companies offering such programs generally weight their payment rates in favour of those sites that send the most clicks. The more clicks you send them, the higher rate per click they will pay you.



Some programs take this even further and adjust your payment rate according to the quality of clicks you send them. That is the percentage of conversions (i.e. sales) they get from the total number of clicks sent ...



... you better hope they know how to sell!



In any event, unless you have a lot of traffic you're probably looking at a paltry $0.01 to $0.10 per click ... don't spend it all at once!



For these programs to be worthwhile you really need a site with a highly targeted audience. If you then carefully choose products or services closely matched to their interests, from professional vendors (i.e. those that know how to sell) you can earn a reasonable amount. Providing that you have the traffic of course!

Ranking High in the Google Search Engine

An Internet business has many tools to help it stay competitive in its field. One of the best tools that you have is the massively popular search engine – Google. This article will give you a couple of great tips about how to profit more from Google.

Google has 90 million visitors to their website. That is unbelievable. Wouldn’t it be sweet to have that kind of traffic to your website. If you design your site right, you can have some of that Google traffic. What is great about Google is they provide you the tools that you can use to ensure that you will gain some of that traffic.

This is how Google works. They take the first few lines of text on your site and then incorporate that into your search listing. When someone types in your keyword and clicks on your site, you will develop greater page rank and popularity. When you use Google’s traffic monitors, you will know when you need to adjust your words to find more traffic.

Make sure that your first paragraph in your page contains the biggest impact statement. This is what your potential customer is going to see when they are searching for your site. The more views that you have to your website, the higher your traffic volume, the more clicks, and the higher your page ranking and popularity will be. This will help you rank high in the Google search engine.

A general guide to creating page content is that at least 8% of the words that you use are key words and about 300 words are your impact paragraph. Make sure that the words that you use in this first paragraph of your are powerful and compel someone to click through to your site.

Search Engine spiders are constantly looking at sites. It is important that you take the time to optimize your site. They always go from the top of your site to the bottom. That is why it is really important to spend special attention on the top of the page.

It is also extremely important to use Google Sitemaps on your site. Instant updating on the site indexing is one of the great perks that comes with the Google Sitemaps. The files are saved as XML files. This is basically a direct link to Google. If you want your site to rank in Google, use the Google Sitemaps.

Take the time to learn about all the tools that Google provides for their customers. They are the biggest players on the net. They can make you more money on your business.

Stay tight with Google. Play by their rules and use their tools. This will help you to rank high in the Google search engine.

15 Tips For Getting Your Web Site Listed

1. Each page should have a different title, meta description and meta keywords. The information should be appropriate to the particular page, not generic to the site.

2. Use your main keywords in the page title, meta description and meta keywords tag. Put your most important keywords first.

3. Use the same keywords in the first few lines of text immediately following the BODY tag, naturally sprinkled throughout the content and also at the foot of the page if possible.

4. Don't repeat any word more than three times in either the title, meta description or meta keywords tags.

5. Don't include a keyword in the meta keywords tag that is not present somewhere in the visible page content.

6. Using spaces instead of commas to separate keywords in the meta keywords tag ensures search engines can group words to exactly match search phrases. e.g. some engines might not match for 'submit url' if your tag says "url submit,url submission"

7. With keywords, less is more. The fewer the words in your title, meta description and meta keywords tags, the more relevancy points a search engine will give each (e.g. 100% divided by 20 words gives 5% relevancy points for each word. 100% divided by 5 words gives a 20% relevancy for each).

8. Submit every page of your web site to all of the major search engines (except for those that expressly forbid it, or only allow root URL/homepage submission). You may be surprised at which pages rank well.

9. Submit one page to each search engine every day.

10. Submit a different page each day.

11. Avoid online auto-submitters unless you are sure they really work. Though some do, many more don't, or are simply ignored by the search engines. To be safe, submit to the major engines by hand.

[Originally created for my own use, the NowSell.com Fast Manual Submission tool enables you to hand-submit to the top 20 in minutes - for Free: http://www.nowsell.com/go/to.cgi?l=asubmit If you need something even faster, take a look at Michael Campbell's unique software: http://www.nowsell.com/go/to.cgi?l=asec]

12. Make a minor change to the page before each submission, so that the search engine spider will see it as new. Most search engines place more importance on new pages. In addition, updating the page helps prevent the engine from thinking you are spamming it, by submitting an identical page multiple times.

13. Once a page has a top 20-40 listing at a search engine, do not re-submit it to the same engine unless it drops out of this range. Since search engine algorithms change often, you are better not re-submitting at all, but following tip 14 below.

14. Modify, or 'tweak' copies of your listed pages to improve ranking. Make some substantial changes to the body text. Submit the copy. Leave the listed page alone, else you may lose the position you already have.

15. Never submit pages that are exact duplicates of others. If you need duplicate pages on different URL's, prevent search engine spiders from visiting them by using the robots exclusion meta tag or your .htaccess file.

Not all of the tips above are applicable to every search engine. However, habitually following them all will improve your chances of decent results (unless you wish to target the different search engines individually, with pages specially optimized for each).
