Building Strong SEO Content

Buzz Me

Saturday, December 25, 2010

There are a lot of different ways to say the same thing. Anyone who has performed keyword research knows that people search for a lot of the same things using very different phrases and terminology. For example, if you’re looking to build your online business, you could search for: internet marketing, website marketing, online marketing, website promotion, search engine optimization, search engine marketing, SEO, and a dozen other variations.

Or if you’re a physician looking to manage health records online, you could search for: EHR, EMR, electronic health records, electronic medical records, medical software, personal health records, practice management software, and so on. One of the problems many business owners and SEOs come up against is how to optimize their site for each of these variations that all potentially mean the same thing.

Quite often, your website will have different pages on your site that can be (or already are) focused on different aspects of your service that cover each of these topics as separate entities. In other cases, your similar phrases can be (or are) used interchangeably throughout the site.

The problem comes when each of these similarly defined terms is extremely competitive, and using them interchangeably won’t allow you a strong enough SEO focus to achieve rankings for any of them. You need pages that focus on one (or just a couple) phrase(s) at a time if you want them to be successful.

Optimize Similar Keywords on Existing Site Pages

Ideally, you want to target keywords that are already a natural fit for any given page. But, when several keyword phrases essentially mean the same thing, there is no clear distinction to be able to say definitively which keywords fit where. For example, “keyword research” is pretty clear while “keyword optimization” can mean the same thing as SEO and all the other phrases.

One easy solution is to find a content page relevant for any group of similar meaning phrases, choose the highest volume phrase and target that. Since each phrase basically means the same thing to the common searcher, changing all instances of various phrases to the single phrase you’re targeting can be done without changing the meaning of the page in any way.

The value here is that the core message of the page hasn’t been changed or the sales message diminished. It’s simply a matter of talking about “online marketing” as opposed to “internet promotion”, or “search engine marketing” vs. “website marketing.” I should note that you don’t always want to change every instance. Some variety is a good thing.

Reduce Site Clutter… Blog Instead

The strategy above works great, but it can become problematic once you run out of pages and still have a number of phrases left to optimize. Most people will just go about creating new pages of sales content to target the remaining phrases. The problem here is you’re going outside your core marketing message to do this and creating site/navigational clutter as well.

Usually these new pages offer nothing new that is substantial or relevant that can’t be found elsewhere on the site. Your site then becomes over-run with pages of content that were built for the sole purpose of getting keyword rankings. That may help with rankings, but not for converting visitors once they arrive.

This is where blogs can come into play. Putting together keyword focused blog posts can help you optimize for additional keywords, while not worrying about adding additional “optimization” clutter to your main site.

But before you rush out to create some generic content to get your keyword on a page, think it through. Your blog isn’t your sales content. So don’t go creating another sales page. Think of a way to present new information in a new, unique, and informative way.

Once you have this awesome piece of standalone content written, place it on your blog, but not as just any other blog post. Instead, you can create a standalone “article” that is linked from your blog navigation. This keeps that content timeless and prevents it from getting buried with the rest of the stuff. Be sure to update this information regularly as necessary.

Be Selective When Optimizing Your Phases

Undoubtedly, when performing keyword research, you’ll find a number of phrases that are similarly themed. Usually these are phrases using a single core term (say, “internet marketing”) that add additional qualifiers such as: “internet marketing services”, “internet marketing strategy”, “internet marketing consultant”, “affiliate internet marketing”, and so on.

One of the worst things you can do is to try and target all of these phrases on a single page. The better strategy is to organize these phrases into supporting themes and then build pages around each theme. Think of it as building in sub-categories for your product and services.

When going this route, adding new pages to the site (rather than the blog) is actually a good idea. You’re building strong, relevant content that targets the specific needs of your visitors using language that addresses that.

Building Strong SEO Content

When keywords are applied correctly throughout your site, whether to existing pages, new pages, blog posts, or wherever, content can be written naturally without feeling forced or being noticed by your visitor. The end result will be a robust site, targeting dozens, if not hundreds, of keywords, all effectively optimized to bring in targeted traffic while still increasing sales.


Google's Chrome OS May Cloud Microsoft's Windows

Buzz Me

Monday, December 20, 2010

What's the difference between a browser and an operating system? Or, can Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) take on Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) is its sweet spot -- the Windows operating system? Google held a press conference in San Francisco Tuesday announcing Google Chrome OS, an Internet-based operating system that has been launched in beta version on a laptop known simply as "Cr-48." By next summer, both Acer and Samsung will release laptops with Chrome OS and Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) chips.

During the presentation by Google CEO Eric Schmidt and a number of product managers, Schmidt admitted he was at first vehemently against Google developing a browser, but Larry and Sergey insisted. Now that browser has morphed into a full open source operating system.

Google has invited users to participate in the beta period for Chrome OS. Anyone interested can go to the pilot program page to apply to participate in the beta testing. The company is looking for individuals who are willing to use the notebook as their primary computer and respond to queries about the product's effectiveness. Google is looking for students, business people, and those involved in nonprofit organizations. Those who are selected will receive a Cr-48 notebook, all black, without logos.

Chrome Web Store

Google also opened its Chrome Web Store on Tuesday. Developers have already started to upload apps. Right now, the store is only available in the United States, but Google noted it will expand to more countries and currencies early in 2011. Google notes the store will be featured prominently in Chrome, and it's designed to help people find apps and help developers reach millions of users.

Google also announced the number of Chrome users has swelled from 40 million to 120 million in the past year. The company attributes the popularity of Chrome to its speed.

Competition With Microsoft

With a notebook operating system, Google has moved deeper into Microsoft territory than it ventured with its mobile Android OS.

"You could argue they're going after Microsoft, but they are not doing it head-to-head," said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT.

"They're aiming to present businesses and consumers with an alternative to the stand-alone computing experience which has been the model for 30 years," he told the E-Commerce Times. "It's an alternative operating system, yes, but it's really an alternative behavior. If you look back at personal computing over the last decade, the alternatives to Windows -- mostly Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) and Linux -- still preserved the same model."

The Chrome OS model may be closer to Android than it is to Windows, since applications will be Internet-based.

"The step Google is taking is to bet consumers and business users are ready for a device or computing experience that relies more on the Internet than a closed operating system," said King. "It's all in the cloud. This is almost the personal computer version of public transportation. Is it necessary to own stand-alone software? Or is there another model that will take care of all of your personal computing?"

How Well Will It Work?

The degree of competition Google poses for Microsoft Windows will depend on how well it fills the needs of its users.

"In realistic terms, Google is just nibbling at the fringes of Microsoft," said Laura DiDio, principal analyst at ITIC.

"Now we're talking about an Internet-based OS. Users are not interested in what's under the covers. They're interested in what works," she told the E-Commerce Times.

"It will have good adoption in the consumer space," DiDio predicted. "It's lightweight, Internet-based. Google's on a roll. In conjunction with the Chrome OS, they've also launched the Chrome Web store. They want those 120 million Chrome browser users to go to it right away.

How To Search Engine Optimization

Buzz Me

Thursday, December 16, 2010

In this article I will be discussing search engine optimization from a how to perspective. So we will call this article how to search engine optimization. Search engine optimization is probably more speculated with more inaccurate information than the stock market. Much like the stock market, people speculate on what they think the search engines are going to do to alter search engine optimization. The truth is, no one knows this information except for the search engines themselves. And they are not going to release it now or never. There is one fact that search engines such as Google have released. Google said years ago that they care about quality content to their end user. If you can deliver quality content to searchers, Google and other search engines alike will love you, love your website and index everything you do.

Content comes best in the form of articles. Writing and submitting articles to article directories is appropriately called article marketing. Article marketing has been used by internet marketers for years. One thing about article marketing that is so great is that it provides satisfaction for all parties involved. This includes the article directory who gets good content to share to their members and therefore receive more advertising revenue. It's great for search engines because they get quality content as well and it's great for your website because you get anchor texted backlinks from the article directories.

When you write articles and submit them to article directories, they allow you to place an anchor texted backlink in your author bio / resource box. These anchor texted backlinks are what let search engines know exactly what keywords you want the search engines to rank your website for. The more anchor texted backlinks you have, the more credit your website is given and therefore the higher it is ranked for the specified keywords in your anchor texted backlinks.

I personally submit five articles everyday to 200 article directories. This has provided me with fantastic results. There has never been anything I have ever done to get high quality one-way anchor texted backlinks. My previous tactic to receive one-way anchor texted backlinks years ago before I knew about article marketing was simply contacting websites and begging for backlinks. As you can probably imagine, this did not go over very well. As a matter of fact, many website owners told me to go to a very hot place beneath the earth if you know what I mean. After about one month, I only received 10 backlinks after hours of emailing.

With article marketing, I receive 1000 anchor texted backlinks every week. Sometimes more depending on how many articles I submit and to how many directories.


Get Paid To Click Ads - earn Money

Buzz Me

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

recently came across a site that might interest you. It's called BigMoneyClix. It's similar to Clixsense and Buxto but it has some interesting features that you can take advantage of if your into online marketing.

The way it works is that you click on ads that are placed by other members. You get one cent per click plus you get paid for your referral's clicks. You can make pretty good money as a free member and it doubles for premium. The premium membership is $30 which is less than buxto, which I'm also a member of. I've been able to steadily click 16 ads a day which is about 5 dollars a day. My referral's clicks have me up to about $15 though.

Another advantage of this site is the forum section. There is a place where you can place your ads for your products or website without getting hassled by the moderators. You can also discuss current events - sports - or just mingle with other members.

Now this is a brand new site so it still has some work being done on it but compared to other PTC sites, I think it's alot more stable. I haven't experienced any downtime and the admin is always available for help.

I usually advertise my affiliate links for this site on Clixsense and it has been working pretty well for me. I buy a package of about 500 clicks on their targeting homeowners and I usually get alot of referrals. You can check it out yourself though. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. If nothing else you can check out the forum and meet some interesting people.

You can also check out the referral packages. If your new to promoting or you just don't want to do it, you can actually order packages of referrals ready to click for you. This is the easiest way to get your profits started in my opinion. After your get your foundation, you can use that money to post more ads. The income becomes residual. I'm not saying you'll get rich overnight, but a good flow of extra income never hurt anybody that I've seen.

The bottom line is that I think this site overall is the best PTC or "pay to click" site on the internet and it's just starting. The ads are always available everyday and they are all relevant to what online marketers and business minded people need. I've actually tried a couple of the products and they have improved my techniques tremendously. But Check it out for yourself. The link is at the bottom of this page or you can just put it in your browser. It's free to join and get your own affiliate link. You can start earning money within a few minutes. I don't even have to click my self anymore, I just let my referrals do the work. Check it out for yourself though - good luck.


PTCL to close telegraph system

Buzz Me

Monday, December 13, 2010

MULTAN: The Pakistan Telecommunication Company’s General Managers Conference held in Lahore on November 21 and 22 recommended to close centuries old telegraph system, which is running in loss. Similarly, telex and trunk calls, which are also running in loss, will be closed, sources said.

Being a member of the International Telegraph Union (ITU), Pakistan cannot close telegram service without the ITU’s permission. PTCL will have to inform the armed forces, courts, banks, national and international institutions before closing telegram service because these agencies still use the system for calling soldiers or approval/ rejection of clemency appeals, court orders etc.

The conference recommended closing telegram services, instead of improving and modernising the system to meet the requirements of the 21st century. Telegrams to rural areas or small towns are being delivered by post that takes three to four days and several Teleprinter circuits had been closed permanently in Sialkot, Dera Ghazi Khan, Muzaffargarh, Faisalabad, Rahimyar Khan, Sahiwal, Okara, Sukkur, Hyderabad, Larkana, Bunnu, Kohat, Sargodha, Mianwali, Attock, Gujrat, Gujranwala, Chakwal, Mandi Bahauddin, Nawab Shah, Bhakkar, Dera Ismail Khan, Loara Lai, Kalat and others. staff report


Learn the secret methods to boost your adsense earnings overnight

Buzz Me

Sunday, December 12, 2010

Most webmasters know that Adsense generates a sizeable source of additional advertising income. That is why most of them use it to go after high paying keywords. They have with them the lists that tells what the keywords are and have already used various methods of identifying them. And yet, after putting up these supposed-to-be high paying keywords into their pages, the money they expected to come rolling in is not really coming in.
What is it that they are doing wrong? Having the pages is with the proper keywords is one thing. But driving visitors to those pages is another matter and often the factor that is lacking. The thing is, to get visitors to your high paying keyword pages, you need to optimize your site navigation. Stop for a moment and think about how visitors are using your website. After a visitor has landed on a certain page, they have the tendency to click on another page that sounds interesting. They get there because of the other links that appears on a page that they initially landed on. This is site navigation. It is all about enabling visitors to move about your site. And one way of maximizing your Adsense earnings. A typical website have menu links on each page. The wording on these links is what grabs a visitor’s attention and gets them to click on one of the links that will take them to another page of that website. Links that have “free’ or “download” are oftentimes good attention-grabbers. This navigation logic can also be applied to driving traffic to your high paying pages. There are some websites that are getting a lot of traffic from search engines, but have low earnings. The trick is to try and use come cleverly labeled links to get the visitors off that pages and navigate them to the higher earning ones. This is one great way of turning real cheap clicks to real dollars. Before you begin testing if this same style will work for you and your website, you need to have two things. Something to track and compare and some high earning pages you want to funnel your site traffic to. An option is to select a few of your frequently visited pages. This is ensuring fast result to come by. Now, the next thing to do is think of ways to get visitors viewing a particular page to try and click on the link that will take them to your high earning pages. Come up with a catchy description for that link. Come up with a catchy and unique description for the link. Think of something that people do not get to see everyday. That will trigger their curiosity enough to try and see what that was all about. You can also use graphics to grab your readers’ attention. There is no limitation to what you can do to make your link noticeable. If you are after the success of your site, you will do everything it takes just to achieve that goal. Just be creative. As far as many Adsense advertisers are concerned, there are no written and unwritten laws to follow regarding what they write. Just as long as you do not overstep the guidelines of the search engines, then go for it. Also remember that it is all about location, location and location. Once the perfect attention grabbing description has been achieved, you have to identify the perfect spot on your page to position that descriptive link to your high paying page. There is nothing wrong with visiting other websites to see how they are going about maximizing their site navigation. “Hot pages” or “Most read” lists are very common and overly used already. Get to know the ones that many websites are using and do not try to imitate them. Another way of doing it is to try and use different texts on different pages. That way you will see the ones that work and what does not. Try to mix things around also. Put links on top and sometimes on the bottom too. This is how you go about testing which ones get more clicks and which ones are being ignored. Let the testing begin. Testing and tracking until you find the site navigation style that works best for you site.


VGA Given 5 Years to Live

Buzz Me

Saturday, December 11, 2010

The VGA port, the connection that's bridged computers to their monitors almost from the birth of the PC industry, is on its way out.

Chip manufacturers Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) and AMD (NYSE: AMD), with backing from various computer vendors, have announced their support for the venerable technology will be phased out by 2015.

They will speed up the adoption of DisplayPort and High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) ports instead.

These newer technologies take up less real estate on laptops, have lower power consumption than VGA ports and support higher screen resolutions. They also support digital technology, which VGA doesn't -- thus paving the way for richer apps on PCs.

Nuts and Bolts of the Announcement

Intel and AMD will phase out support for VGA beginning in 2013 and expect the technology to be off all their product lines by 2015. It will be replaced by HDMI and DisplayPort.

These newer technologies enable slimmer laptop designs and support higher resolutions with deeper color than the 20-year-old VGA.

The move's intended to phase out old analog legacy connectors, Intel spokesperson Nick Knuppfer told TechNewsWorld. "HDMI and DisplayPort are modern digital interfaces that support higher resolutions and screen sizes," he added.

Both Intel and AMD will also stop supporting low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) by 2013. LVDS is an electrical signaling system that enables high transmission rates over twisted-pair cables. It moves video data from graphics adapters to computer monitors. Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL) FireWire serial bus interface uses LVDS.

The chip makers favor DisplayPort 1.2 for PC monitors and HDMI 1.4a for connectivity to TV screens.

Samsung and LG, for example, already offer some products with DisplayPort technology embedded into them. Both these vendors, as well as Dell (Nasdaq: DELL) and Lenovo, are on-board with Intel's and AMD's plans to phase out of VGA.

Nvidia (Nasdaq: NVDA) was notable by its absence.

"Lenovo already offers PCs that feature HDMI or displayPort," company spokesperson Kristy Fair told TechNewsWorld.

AMD and Nvidia did not respond to requests for comment by press time.

Putting the Change in Perspective

"This is a normal technological advance," IDC analyst David Daoud told TechNewsWorld. "VGA has been around since the beginning of PC computing."

"The VGA port is a near-anachronism in today's world of super-slim laptops and ultra-low voltage processors," Randy Lawson, a principal analyst at IHS iSuppli, told TechNewsWorld.

More importantly, the issue revolves around cost.

With newer CPUs and GPUs migrating below 45nm CMOS processes, supporting the 5-volt requirement for VGA, if it's to remain integrated on these chips, will be cumbersome, Lawson pointed out. "It will increasingly be moved off-chip, adding total system cost as well as absorbing precious PCB real estate."

The fact that HDMI and DisplayPort consume less energy probably also helped bring about VGA's expected demise.

"The green aspect of it's important," Daoud said. "When you have technologies that are competitively priced and consume less energy, it makes sense for people to move to them."

Looking at the Stats

IDC's figures show that VGA use in laptops and other portable PCs will fall sharply. "From 2009 to 2014, we're looking at a negative compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31 percent for VGA on the portable side," Daoud remarked.

Only 24.5 million of the 427 million laptops in users' hands in 2014 will be VGA-enabled, Daoud stated. Another 279 million will use HDMI, while 167 million will use DisplayPort.

"DisplayPort penetration is going gangbusters," Daoud said. "It will have a 106 percent CAGR between 2009 and 2014."

That rapid growth is probably being fueled by the release of DisplayPort version 1.2 in January. "DisplayPort v1.2 seems to have the features people want," Daoud pointed out. "These include daisy-chained multiple support, USB and Ethernet capabilities."

DisplayPort will be implemented in commercial PCs, IDC forecasts. "This is a commercial desktop story," Daoud stated.

Finding the Best Web Hosting Service

Buzz Me

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Finding the best hosting service for your website can be complicated. There are almost endless options all clamoring to be the top hosts or the least expensive service, and this can make it almost impossible for webmasters to sort fact from fiction. The best way to select a quality web host is to take the selection process one step at a time:

Assess Your Needs

The very first item to address in selecting the best hosting service for your needs is to actually identify what those needs are. What sort of website are looking to host? Small personal homepages will have very different hosting criteria from large company websites. To find the best hosting service for you, it is important to determine exactly what you plan to host now, and ideally take into consideration anything you are planning to host in the immediate future.


Different hosting companies offer a large variety of rates. Companies offering dedicated servers will be substantially higher than others offering budget hosting with limited bandwidth. Competition from overseas is priced temptingly low for many, but there are many factors to consider. Don't stop at price, and if you plan on using your website in a professional capacity, it is important to move beyond free web hosting. Free hosts are great for small family or fun sites, but are not suited to the needs of internet marketers – even those just starting out. Rate should not be a top determining factor until you have narrowed a list based on other criteria such as:

Reliability and Speed

The best hosting services will offer uptime of over 99%. This should be a guarantee to motivate the company to keep all servers up all the time. Of course, visitors should also be able to access your site quickly.

Data Transfer and Disk Space

Bandwidth requirements grow with your site. Web hosting companies pay for bandwidth, so you, the one using that bandwidth will be billed accordingly. It is far better to pay for the required amount of data transfer upfront rather than get a surprise bill in the mail for having gone considerably over your allotted amount. By the same token, be sure you have an appropriate amount of disk space reserved. Most websites require less than 3GB.

Technical Support

It is very important to be able to reach the hosting company if your website begins experiencing problems. The best hosting support one can hope for is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Most companies know this, so take their stated hours with a grain of salt. Always spot check the companies with email at random times to see if they really have someone available to help 24/7.

Scripts and Special Features

Different websites have different needs, and the best hosting service for you should accommodate those needs. Email addresses should be standard as well as the capacity for a variety of scripts. Be sure to see if other features like shopping carts and secure servers are available or standard.

Control Panel

How much control does the hosting company offer webmasters? It is inconvenient to work through customer service every time to modify a password or to change email addresses. Be sure hosting companies offer some form of a control panel accompanying hosting.

Bloggers Making Dollars - Selling Out Or Just Being Centsible?

Buzz Me

Saturday, November 20, 2010

Even though web logs has been around for sometime now, there is still an ongoing debate among some in the blogging community about whether or not the medium should be trampled upon by a capitalistic footprint. The blogosphere, some will contend, is a pristine wilderness that should be unblemished by paid links, affiliate product reviews, or just about any form of advertising that results in a profitable outcome.

And who are these posting pundits that claim to be the guardians of contextual virtue? To find a concentrated number of the "profit free faithful", some, can be found at conferences such as BlogNashville, held at institutions like Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.

The gathering in the land of Elvis addresses all manner of blogging issues and even attracts attention from the local media. Dan Morridian, a reporter for, wrote in his article entitled: "Making Bucks From Blogs" is quoted as saying...

"One of the burning questions during BlogNashville, a recent gathering of some 300 bloggers at Belmont University was: "Can or should blogs make money?" The only clear reply was that the early settlers in the blogosphere have yet to come to a consensus."

The profit question is a point of contention that hasn't exactly been the exclusive domain of the blogging community. When the Internet finally fell out of the nerd nest of the technically minded and into the hands of the public domain, early travelers of the information superhighway promoted a "free net" philosophy.

The new pioneers of cyberspace felt that Internet service providers should not charge for connecting to the web. And, just like bloggers, there was an ideological mind set that the Internet should not be commercially exploited. Today, you would be hard pressed to find a group of web site owners who decry making a profit from their Internet properties.

So why is there a coalition of bloggers taking such an anti-capitalistic stance? Some consider blogging to be a semantic art form. Bloggers should create a community like atmosphere that is free from bias or hidden profit motives. To make money from the valued readership who admires your edification can be considered a mortal sin by the self-appointed paragons of blogging virtue.

However, me thinks that the vaulted voices of blogging purity protest too much. Virtually any art form or online medium will eventually be exploited in greater or lesser forms for monetary gain. There are plenty of examples of artistic integrity being sacrificed at the altar of capitalism. The now infamous case of Metallica verses Napster is a perfect case of capital gain overriding artistic virtue.

Metallica use to encourage the boot leg recording of their live concerts. When the studio recorded versions of their songs starting being passed around by a new file sharing sensation called Napster, they were less than encouraging. Lars Ulrich, the Danish drummer and co-founder of Metallica proclaimed that using Napster as a vehicle to disseminate their music to the masses was paramount to stealing and could result in a loss of revenue for the band.

Lawsuits against Napster were soon to follow because it offended Metallica's bottom line and not any stead fast dedication to their musical art form. Actors, too, are not immune to the sell out syndrome. You might wonder how Oscar winning A-list thespians could star in a movie that not only has a weak story line, but clearly does not feature their sizable acting talents in a favorable light.

Just like those in the music industry who are subject to monetary temptations, the acting deities that appear on the silver screen are equally as fallible. The sizable pay check that is offered to Hollywood heavyweights in what seems like cinematic mismatches, far outweighs any artistic integrity.

Once an artist of any genre obtains fame or recognition for their work, inevitably, "selling out" is a temptation that is hard to resist. Blogs are no exception. Take for example, started by 23 year old John Wu in the year 2006. Sharing his personal views on the banking, finance, and the credit card industry, it is reported that he will be selling the blog in 2008 for 15 million dollars.

If the story is to be believed, then it only serves to highlight the profitability of the blog format. And I believe, that over time, the Bankaholic example will only diminish the ranks of those who will adopt the no-profit credo. It might even force existing bloggers who, in the past, might have resisted profitability to revise their thinking.

So, if you are new to blogging or thinking about making some "coin" from your existing blog, let me provide you with some "points to ponder" if you are on the fence. First, I have a hard time wrapping my head around objections to making money from a blog or any content management system that exists in cyberspace.

We are a capitalistic country not a socialistic collective that works exclusively for the "people's republic". Also, the blogosphere is not some art house project or indie band that is the exclusive domain of a few dedicated fans who decide whether or not profitability should be part of the equation. You can weave into the fabric of any blog a mixture of great content, honest opinion, and money making opportunities.

Both profiteer and purist can exist in the same universe. Would you really stop visiting a blog that has great content if the author started adorning the site with AdSense or affiliate products? If you are that averse to capitalism then you might as well just exit the online world altogether. Just about any online newspaper, magazine, or blog in cyberspace today, unless it is specifically slated as a non-profit advocacy group, will be trying to solicit advertising dollars from the traffic they garner.

Keep in mind also that the Caveat Emptor rule should always be applied if a blogger recommends that you purchase a certain product, or sign up for a particular service. Perform your own due diligence before engaging in any type of online commerce. The sum and substance of this article boils down to a very few basic points. In my opinion, no organization or zealous group of lemmings should determine blog behavior..

Your readership will determine whether or not you are providing good content to keep them coming back, or if you are someone who's only motivation is profiteering. The blogosphere is a free flowing mass of information and commerce by which all of us can exist peacefully. In the immortal words of Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along"?

Pay Per Click Vs Search Engine Optimization

Buzz Me

Monday, November 15, 2010

read a blog post recently focusing on which provides more value, Pay per Click or Search Engine Optimization. Those arguing for SEO claim that 80 percent of clicks come from organic rankings. Those on the paid search (PPC) side, contend that more revenue comes from the Sponsored Links.

I read a blog post recently focusing on which provides more value, Pay per Click or Search Engine Optimization. Those arguing for SEO claim that 80 percent of clicks come from organic rankings. Those on the paid search (PPC) side, contend that more revenue comes from the Sponsored Links. Microsoft conducted a study which found that 60 percent of revenues were driven by paid search, while 40 percent of revenue was driven by organic. As you might imagine, opponents claim the numbers are misleading.

Here's how I see it--I believe PPC and SEO have different roles, and they add value at different stages of the buying cycle. Paid Search is sales oriented, comes into play at the end of the buying cycle, when consumers are ready to make a purchase or commitment. The most successful ads are those written around specific offers. So for example, if I were a carpet cleaning business, my ad might read 5 Rooms Cleaned $99.95. This assumes I had done all my research, checked out multiple carpet cleaners in the area, saw which ones had great reviews, which were close by, which had hours that fit my schedule, which covered shag carpets, tiles and windows, etc. So I look in the sponsored Links section to find the best deal and make my purchase.

Organic listings represent the value proposition of the company and describe what they do rather than a specific offer. In the case of the carpet cleaner, the title description of their organic listing might say Sacramentos premier provider of carpet cleaning, tiles and windows, using only green, nontoxic chemicals to protect your pets and the environment. Organic listings come into play at the beginning of the buying cycle. When people are starting to look for a carpet cleaner or learn about carpet cleaning clicking on this listing might provide them answers to their questions. And if the carpet cleaner had consistently high rankings and visibility for related keyword phrases, this will ensure that as the buyer progresses through the buying cycle, they will continue to see and engage the company through its organic listing, eventually making the purchase or taking the conversion action there as well.

Bottom lineboth Pay per Click and Search Engine Optimization have a role in helping a company increase its visibility, flow of qualified prospects, and revenue. They both add value, and if the cost model is right for the company, doing both simultaneously will provide maximum opportunity and benefit.

Facebook Nation: Millions and Millions of Worried People

Buzz Me

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Facebook is expected to announce sometime this week that it has topped half a billion users. That's 500 million globally. For a website that began life in the humble environs of a college dorm room, it's quite a milestone. However, many of those users are concerned about how their information is being used, as Facebook has learned repeatedly as it has made changes along the way.

The question remains, though, when the service has grown from 400 million users to more than 500 million in less than six months, are privacy concerns really likely to change how business is done in social networking?

"People are deeply invested in Facebook," Jennifer Golbeck, assistant professor of information studies at the University of Maryland, told TechNewsWorld. Thus, they are likely to weigh the advantages of having hundreds of friends and a wealth of information already available to them on this particular service against anything Facebook may do to change its privacy policies.

Pennies for Privacy

In fact, nearly half of people in the U.S. who use social networking are concerned about their privacy, according to recent research by Marist Poll. Of the roughly 1,000 U.S. citizens polled, 23 percent reported being "very concerned," and another 27 percent reported that they were "concerned." Still, 43 percent of those contacted reported having a profile on Facebook or a site like it -- MySpace, for instance.

Interestingly, while women reported more overall concern with privacy issues, they also outnumbered men in social networking use, according to Marist, by 45 percent to 40 percent.

For these people, Facebook has become an "important part of their communication structure," said Golbeck. So, while a major change in privacy policies -- like the one implemented by Facebook several months ago with the universal rollout of the "Like" button -- may rile users, it may not disturb them enough to push them off a service used by so many of those friends, colleagues, and family members with whom they wish to communicate.

Money From the Millions

For any online service -- from streaming music to photo libraries -- the challenge always has been how to monetize use. People may check their Facebook accounts once, twice, or tens of times per day, but who really profits? In this case, it's the advertisers, and Facebook has taken a raft of complaints to be able to provide ever-more-granular information about users to prospective and current ad buyers.

That "Like" button, for example, provides a great deal of information to advertisers, who then can serve up ads tailored specifically to users' special interests as people perform simple tasks such as updating their status or sending out the latest picture of a kid's summer activity.

However, while Facebook -- and other tech giants like Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) and Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) -- might be engaging in the same competitive strategies that have long fueled the marketing efforts of brick-and-mortar companies, their reach is amplified by the very fact of the numbers of people and website visits involved, Claire Simmers, professor and chair of international business at St. Joseph's University, told TechNewsWorld.

"Along with this sharing comes an added responsibility for your own privacy," Simmers said.

Apparently, people are taking that privacy seriously enough to warrant some detailed responses from Facebook, even if they aren't leaving the service over their concerns. Earlier this month, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg posted a detailed entry on the official Facebook blog explaining how those personalized ads are served up to individuals' profile pages.

Only aggregate data is supplied to advertisers, she stressed. Facebook does not share personal information with advertisers. As an added explanation, the company supplied a video called "How Advertising Works on Facebook" to further assure users with privacy worries.

Google Inc. is preparing to roll out a music download service tied to its search engine later this year, followed by an online subscription service in 2011, according to people familiar with the Internet giant's discussions with the music industry.

Google's proposals are still vague, say these people, and it's unclear whether it has struck any deals with record labels so far. But Google has been stepping up conversations about offering new music services tied to phones running its Android operating system along with the broader Web, said people who have been briefed on the talks. The launch of Google's download music store is still months away, these people said.

The discussions come as Google has been pushing deeper into music. Last year, as a first step, the company began linking to partner websites like iLike and Pandora through its search engine, allowing people to stream songs with one click from its search page. Now, the company is looking to tie its own service to its search engine, too.

The discussions come as the Mountain View, Calif.-based search company has been ramping up on entertainment content. Google is also moving to add professional content on its YouTube video site, and is planning to roll out a digital bookstore this year.

The launch of a Google music store would heighten tensions with Apple Inc., whose iTunes store is the leading U.S. digital music seller. Apple also recently began selling digital books. The two Silicon Valley giants have been at odds since Google launched its Android mobile phone software, a direct challenge to Apple's popular iPhone. Apple recently hit back with an advertising platform for its iPhone and iPad tablet that has terms Google says could limit competition.

Google and Apple declined to comment for this article.

Google's push into music retailing is likely to be welcomed by music labels that are increasingly concerned about Apple's dominant position among U.S. music retailers. Apple accounted for 28% of all music purchased by U.S. consumers in the first quarter, according to NPD Group.

The recording industry has long sought a counterweight to Apple's growing clout, but rivals such as Inc. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. remain far behind with about a 12% share each, according to NPD.

The first phase of Google's music service is expected to be a Web store where users can buy and download tracks, music industry insiders said. It will be tied directly to Google's search engine, so that people using to look for a particular group or song will be served a link to the company's music store, according to people familiar with the talks.

These people also said the download store would be an "interim" step toward what is expected to be a more ambitious cloud-based subscription service compatible with mobile phones built with Google's Android software. A cloud-based service would enable subscribers to stream music directly from the Internet to their mobile phones, so that users wouldn't need to store music files on their devices. Google recently provided a glimpse of a Web-based music store within its Android Market, which sells apps for phones built with Google's Android mobile software.

Apple in the past several months bought and then shut down online music service, prompting widespread speculation it might also soon launch a new cloud-based version of its iTunes music store.

In one of my previous post, I wrote about the importance of getting value Twitter Followers. Value Twitter followers are nothing but real followers who love and reply your Tweets. But the value of “ Value Twitter Followers “ is now going down after the introduction of Making Money through Tweets. If you really want to make money through Twitter then you need massive number of Followers because most of these money making programs are based on how many clicks others made on your Tweet. ( PPC ). The theory is quite simple, the more followers you have then more chance to make money.
more chance to make money.

image image image

I suggest my readers to use Sponsored Tweets, RevTweet, and Magpie as your twitter money making options. Sponsored Tweets gives you freedom to rate our own Twitter Account and in RevTweet we can automate our money making Tweets. ( I am so happy to say that recently I successfully completed one Tweet offer in Sponsored Tweets ).

Now you should concentrate on how to make more followers. There are many pay sites that offer bulk followers for Twitter. Unfortunately most of these twitter accounts are invalid or inactive accounts. So it is always better that you should participate in a program where account holders manually follow each other. Two interesting programs are given below, which you can try to get many followers.


What I Like in FastFollowers ? Click here to reach Fastfollowers

1. This is a game of earning credits and getting good followers. Once a member is out of credit, then he will not get followers. So this makes him, actively follow others. We can make sure that somebody will follow you.

2. The program will notify us through email when our credit reaches zero.

3. You may change the offer of your credit and can view how many people followed you through FastFollowers.

4. Free to enjoy. ( Not all options, still very useful in earning good followers )

5. Fastfollowers using Twitter Oath to verify account and no need to update Twitter Account each time.

What I hate in FastFollower ?

1. Some accounts that I already followed are appearing again in the list. This makes me confusion whether to click on that account again or not.

2. The members list to follow is very short and it should be at least 50 members for us to choose in a single time itself.


What I Like in Twitter Follower ?

1. Very easy one click option to follow and unfollow others. Just Login and Start following people who are available in the list. Now more than 2000 active Twitter accounts available in Twitter Follower.

2. Free to use, Site owned by John Chow, Famous internet celebrity.

What I hate in Twitter Follower ?

1. Every time we need to update our Twitter Account , with username and password. This site doesn't use Twitter Oath to approve login.

2. Some Twitter accounts in “List” are inactive or invalid. So after every login, we need to unfollow those who are not following us back.

3. If our name is in the last page of the list, then not sure that somebody will follow us.

I suggest my readers to use both programs simultaneously. This will definitely earn huge followers for you. But, never forget to monetize your Twitter before doing this.

How to make money with PTC sites

Buzz Me

Friday, June 18, 2010

how to make money online is a search phrase that thousands of people type into their search engine each day, and if you are anything like me, then you’ve read a whole lot of different ways how to make money online.

How do you make money online then? There are a few ways to make money straight away, but the way I’m going to explain here is PTC.(Paid to click)

You may or may not have heard of PTC, or even read articles about how people make money online using it. The truth is you’re not going to make a small fortune with it unless 1. You sign up to every PTC site and click every ad or 2. Refer every single person you possibly can to sign up to the sites you’re registered with, and click the ads. The second option being the better one, unless you have got time to click ads all day!.

What is PTC?

PTC sites have got paid advertisements on them that pay you $0.01c for you to view them for 30 seconds. You can only view one ad at a time, and you must wait for the counter to count down 30 seconds before your PTC account gets credited.

If you refer someone, anyone as long as it’s not the same computer as yours, and then your account gets credited $0.01c for every ad they click on as well. So the more sites you join, and the more people you refer, the more money you make.

How to make money online with PTC :

1. Firstly if you haven’t started an Alertpay or PayPal account then sign up for one of those, I prefer AlertPay as not every site uses PayPal.

2. Sign up to a PTC site. I would start with 5-10 different PTC sites, depending on how much time you have to click on the ads. There are usually 5-13 different ads to click on each different site, with 30 seconds per ad, it does add up.

3. Click on all the ads that are available. Remember you can only click on 1 PTC ad at a time, or you won’t get credited to your account. It’s good to read through some of the ads for future marketing tips.

4. Refer people to the PTC sites that you have joined. You can do this many ways, start a blog, write articles, send emails to friends, use comments on different blogs and sites, word of mouth! Where ever you think people may want to do this as well, give it a go. Start small and grow and grow and grow. This is how you make money online with PTC, refer refer refer.

Here is a PTC site that I recommend to start with, find more at my blog:


How Does Affiliate Marketing Work

Buzz Me

Many wonder, how does affiliate marketing work for them? Those who are looking to begin an internet business, or add a stream of income to already existing ones may find themselves interested in the ins and outs of affiliate marketing, which truly is not a difficult concept to understand. Affiliate marketing is beneficial for both the merchant and the individual who partners with the company, and with a successful relationship, this form of Internet advertising can, in the long run, be quite lucrative. The Internet is rife with companies selling products or offering services to people who surf the web. More so than even in a traditional market, advertising is extremely important online. The competition is so fierce on the World Wide Web because of the fact that companies are no longer competing with others in a general geographic area, they are having to go up against others who offer similar goods but that could be based anywhere in the world. This is why advertising is so essential.

Understanding the changing business climate important when finding out the answer to how does affiliate marketing work. So, considering the suddenly steep competition, merchants began to try and think of new ways to get the word out about their companies. This is where the individual website owner plays a vital role. Business owners began to realize the potential that independently run websites have in reaching a large section of the population. Companies began contracting these people to advertise on their websites. And it was not before long, considering the success of these ventures, that many began to ask themselves, "how does affiliate marketing work?"

But how does affiliate marketing work for the individual? For those thinking about beginning an Internet-based business, this brand of marketing can often be a wise investment to make. It operates under the confines of an already existing website. So it is wise to make sure that an individual has his own website first before looking into affiliate marketing opportunities. Once there is a steady stream of traffic that visits the site on a consistent basis, a person will begin looking attractive to potential companies.

One of the next most frequently asked questions after "how does affiliate marketing work," is "how much effort does a person have to put into this?" The answer to the last question varies. An affiliate can basically decide how much work he wants to put in on his end of the bargain. While sometimes companies may have preferences about what they expect, for the most part, that decision is left up to the website owner. Some choose to write actual advertisements out for the company, posts or entries that detail the highlights of the product being advertised. Others are simply content to just post a banner or ad on their website and wait for people to click on it, without any extra urging.

So what happens once a person clicks on an advertisement? How does affiliate marketing work in this aspect? First, in order to answer this question for a seller, one must look at his contract for the specifics, although there are standardized business practices across the board that affiliate marketers can look at when trying to get a general idea. Depending on the agreement with the company, some merchants will offer pay per click or pay per sale. Pay per click, while not in popular use today, is the practice of paying a commission to a website owner every time a reader clicks on an advertisement for the company. Once a reader mouse clicks over the banner, it redirects them to an offshoot of the company's site; the website owner has a specialize code linked to the URL, that tells the merchant how many people were directed there from the banner. The merchant then pays the commission accordingly; these, however, have declined in popularity since their inception.

Because of the fact that dishonest individuals were able to find ways to fool the computer systems and scam merchants into paying for customers who did not actually visit the companys site, many companies have tried to find other ways to measure the success of an advertisement. As a result, most merchants have moved to a "pay per sale" method. This pays the commission to the website owner each time a customer purchases something from the business after going through the affiliate's ad. While this certainly benefits the merchant more than the individual, seeing as how the company only has to pay once results are seen, this method also safeguards the individuals in a way. This assures that individuals will not have to be victims of fraudulent practices as well. Although, this method of payment will generally not generate revenue as quickly as the pay per click would.

How does affiliate marketing work differently from other forms of Internet business? A person does not have to spend exorbitant amounts of time fostering business for the company. As long as he continues to do what he had been doing previous to becoming an affiliate, the work should not add any extra stress to his life. "Be thou diligent to know the state of they flocks, and look well to thy herds" (Proverbs 27:23). If a person is able to watch over his own interests, then there should not be any reason why being a marketer should not add increased revenue. No longer will anyone have to ask, "how does affiliate marketing work?" As shown, clearly it can and does work, and can work for anyone


YouTube Builds a Cutting Room in the Cloud

Buzz Me

YouTube Builds a Cutting Room in the CloudGoogle has unveiled the YouTube Video Editor, which lets people edit their videos in the cloud.

The application lets users merge clips into a longer video or edit down a video, among other things. Google said it will add new features based on user feedback.

The video editor is available on TestTube, which is a laboratory of sorts for YouTube.

About the YouTube Video Editor

The video editor lets users combine multiple short clips they have uploaded to create a longer video. It also lets them trim the beginning and ending of their videos.

Users can add soundtracks from Google's AudioSwap library. They can also create new videos without worrying about file formats, then publish them to YouTube with one click.

"We're looking forward to adding new features based on your feedback to make the video more powerful while still retaining its simplicity," Google's Rushabh Doshi and Joshua Siegel wrote on the YouTube blog.

"The video editor is pretty simplistic and only does two things," remarked Andrew Eisner, director of community and content at Retrevo. "It lets you rearrange some clips and add soundtracks from this new Google sound library," he added.

"We've released the editor into TestTube, which is where we push products we want the community to test out before we push them out more widely to the '.com' site," YouTube spokesperson Chris Dale told TechNewsWorld.

He declined to give a date for when the editor will be put into general circulation.

The Rough Edges

Some early users have complained that the editor is very slow and video takes a long time to load, but Dale pointed out that this is because the editor is online.

"Because it's based in the cloud, Video Editor's responsiveness is dependent on the strength and speed of your Internet connection," he remarked.

Other users have warned that Google's servers could be overloaded because edited videos have to be saved separately from the originals, and that will mean there may be several versions of a video online unless the earlier ones are deleted.

"We're not worried too much about this, and our users certainly shouldn't worry about it," Dale said. "We have enough servers to easily handle the 24 hours of video that is uploaded to YouTube every minute, and regularly challenge our users to upload even more content to YouTube."

Shaking Up the Industry

Google's entry into the free online video editing industry will shake things up for the incumbents, Retrevo's Eisner told TechNewsWorld.

"Sure, it validates the idea of this service, but it brings to mind that old story about the elephant stepping on the ant and saying, 'There, you've got your validation,'" Eisner explained. "It could spell trouble for some of the other online video editors unless they come up with some differentiation."

A host of free video editors is available online. They include Cuts from Rifftrax; Jaycuts, and Motionbox, which powers personal video uploads for Shutterfly and AOL.

Cuts is a service that lets users create and share their takes of any online video. They can insert sound effects, add captions and loop the parts they like the most. They can then embed their creation on any webpage or blog, or email it to their friends. It works with any platform and within any browser.

Motionbox offers a personal video service that lets users share videos only with people they select. It offers a basic free service as well as a premium, for-pay service. The premium service offers "virtually unlimited" video storage, high-quality downloads to a computer or iPod, a high-definition player and full-screen playback, DVDs and Flipbooks of members' videos and large file uploads.

Jaycuts is one of the free online video editors that offers differentiation by licensing its editor out, Eisner said.

"If you have a social media site or are building a travel site and want to let people edit videos on that site, you can let them do that by licensing Jaycuts' video editor," Eisner explained. "You can't do that with YouTube on your site, you'll have to go to the YouTube site.


SEO: Google's Next Big Move

Buzz Me

(Will your website be ready, or will you be playing catch-up six months too late?

November 2003 might go down in history as the month that Google shook a lot of smug webmasters and search engine optimization (SEO) specialists from the apple tree. But more than likely, it was just a precursor of the BIG shakeup to come.

Google touts highly its secret PageRank algorithm. Although PageRank is just one factor in choosing what sites appear on a specific search, it is the main way that Google determines the "importance" of a website.

In recent months, SEO specialists have become expert at manipulating PageRank, particularly through link exchanges.

There is nothing wrong with links. They make the Web a web rather than a series of isolated islands. However, PageRank relies on the naturally "democratic" nature of the web, whereby webmasters link to sites they feel are important for their visitors. Google rightly sees link exchanges designed to boost PageRank as stuffing the ballot box.

I was not surprised to see Google try to counter all the SEO efforts. In fact, I have been arguing the case with many non-believing SEO specialists over the past couple months. But I was surprised to see the clumsy way in which Google chose to do it.

Google targeted specific search terms, including many of the most competitive and commercial terms. Many websites lost top positions in five or six terms, but maintain their positions in several others. This had never happened before. Give credit to Barry Lloyd of for cleverly uncovering the process.

For Google, this shakeup is just a temporary fix. It will have to make much bigger changes if it is serious about harnessing the "democratic" nature of the Web and neutralizing the artificial results of so many link exchanges.

Here are a few techniques Google might use (remember to think like a search engine):

  1. Google might start valuing inbound links within paragraphs much higher than links that stand on their own. (For all we know, Google is already doing this.) Such links are much less likely to be the product of a link exchange, and therefore more likely to be genuine "democratic" votes.

  2. Google might look at the concentration of inbound links across a website. If most inbound links point to the home page, that is another possible indicator of a link exchange, or at least that the site's content is not important enough to draw inbound links (and it is content that Google wants to deliver to its searchers).

  3. Google might take a sample of inbound links to a domain, and check to see how many are reciprocated back to the linking domains. If a high percentage are reciprocated, Google might reduce the site's PageRank accordingly. Or it might set a cut-point, dropping from its index any website with too many of its inbound links reciprocated.

  4. Google might start valuing outbound links more highly. Two pages with 100 inbound links are, in theory, valued equally, even if one has 20 outbound links and the other has none. But why should Google send its searchers down a dead-end street, when the information highway is paved just as smoothly on a major thoroughfare?

  5. Google might weigh a website's outbound link concentration. A website with most outbound links concentrated on just a few pages is more likely to be a "link-exchanger" than a site with links spread out across its pages.

Google might use a combination of these techniques and ones not mentioned here. We cannot predict the exact algorithm, nor can we assume that it will remain constant. What we can do is to prepare our websites to look and act like a website would on a "democratic" Web as Google would see it.

For Google to hold its own against upstart search engines, it must deliver on its PageRank promise. Its results reflect the "democratic" nature of the Web. Its algorithm must prod webmasters to give links on their own merit. That won't be easy or even completely possible. And people will always find ways to turn Google's algorithm to their advantage. But the techniques above can send the Internet a long way back to where Google promises it will be.


HP Delivers Web-Based Printing but It's Not Clear Who Wants It

Monday, June 14, 2010

Printer giant HP (NYSE: HPQ) has announced a new line of printers that will ship equipped with a suite of services allowing their owners to print to them from anywhere on the Web, using any device capable of sending an email. The line starts at US$99 and the Web-based service will be supported by digital print advertising.

Every HP ePrint printer in the line, said the company, will have a unique email address to which users can direct items for printing. Users also can send documents to print through an HP ePrint mobile app on their smartphone device to a home, office, or public print location such as a hotel or FedEx Office store. Supported file formats include Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Office, PDF and JPEG.

The question, though, is whether smartphone and tablet users are clamoring to be able to print from their gadgets. Not so much, according to Josh Martin, senior analyst with Strategy Analytics.

"We live in a digital age," Martin told TechNewsWorld, "and this is an analog solution."

Partners Galore

Customers who buy one of the new e-Print-capable printers will be able to access their Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) suite of applications, such as Google Docs, Photos and Calendar, directly from their printers, according to HP. Documents and photos can be sent to print from iPhones and other smartphones and, perhaps most interestingly, the iPad, which has no native print support.

Content partners announced along with the printers include Crayola, DocStoc, Facebook,, Picasa Web Albums, Reuters, and Yahoo (Nasdaq: YHOO). Each will provide Web-based print applications. It's a heavy-hitting group, to be sure.

A service called "Scheduled Delivery" will allow customers to choose content to be pushed to a printer at a designated time each day or week, said HP. News is one example the company gave.

In a pitch to parents, the company also noted that customers might "choose fun kids' activities from Disney (NYSE: DIS) to be ready when the children get home from school.

However, the most successful category of applications in the mobile space to date have been entertainment and gaming, noted Martin. "These applications, which generally dominate the top-ten lists on iPhone, are not generally in need of printing," he explained.

Aye, There's the Rub

Like users of free Web services such as Pandora before them, the buyers of HP's new printers may be surprised to find coupons and ads on the materials they print through the ePrint tools. HP has positioned the information to be provided by print advertisers as "premium content" and stressed that "brands can add value to their audience by populating select print content with customized messages."

In translation, though, this means that -- like a My Yahoo homepage or Flickr album -- the service will be supported by ads pushed to consumers. Many, like those who just want to print their Grocery IQ lists easily or send a photograph received on a netbook to a high-quality printer quickly, likely won't mind the intrusion.

"Having the ability for a printer to print from a mobile device could be a useful feature in differentiating one product from another," posited Martin.

While the ePrint service may be a welcome addition, then, to an already strong line of personal printers, it's "a good feature, but not the makings of a successful standalone product," predicted Martin.

Coinciding with the ePrint announcement, HP announced a new app available for Android smartphones, called "HP iPrint Photo." The app will allow direct wireless printing to HP inkjet printers connected to a local WiFi network, said the company.

Currently, HP supports such printing from Symbian, Windows Mobile, and iPhone/iPad/iPod touch devices. The Snapfish by HP mobile app for Android is expected to launch this summer.
