It is Sunday and the time has come to feature Round Up i must mentioned that last Sunday 20 February 2011 i have one of bloggers biggest nightmare my website cpanel was hacked and my website set up for redirection luckily my database was intact and i had a backup copy on my local hard drive. The hacker deleted all my WordPress files which include my customized Thesis theme. Well i managed to contact the web host and had everything sorted within two hours. Well this will never deter me from blogging however i am looking at moving web host in the near future. As i mentioned before it is Sunday so lets get back to Round Up.
(1) Are microblogging services like Twitter, Facebook becoming better alternatives to traditional blogging ? – A thing or say, a theory which has often been debated – Social sites like Facebook or twitter can be better alternative to traditional blogging. Traditional blogging here refers to the usual blogging where you either have an option to host your blogs directly from your own sites or you also have an option to go for sites like WordPress or Blogger for the same. The latter has gone big like anything.
(2)Facebook vs Google – Only the paranoid survives – As I look at the Facebook VS Google race that is going on today, I recall something.I read a book sometimes back called as “Only the paranoid survive” by Andy Grove. In the book Andy talked about how Intel faced intense competition but managed to came out as winner all the times. Leaving aside the controversies, Intel is the champion of personal computing. It had its fair share of competition with Motorola, Japanese Manufactures and then finally with AMD
(3)Link Building Guide – How to Approach Webmasters for a Link – Now we are getting something, the next part of this link building guide, how to approach webmasters for a link. The time when you could send a direct link request, for a one way link, a link exchange or whatever, is almost good and gone. You can get lucky from time to time, but that is not the way to do things. In order to get a link you either need to know the person in some way or have something to offer them.
(4)Increase Your Affiliate Sales By Communicating With Your Merchants – A short time ago, one of my readers mentioned that they were able to gain more sales and promote more effectively after contacting the merchant. I thought I would elaborate on that because it is a great way to increase your affiliate sales. Lots of people overlook this method and it’s not only a way to increase sales but you’ll also save yourself some time and frustration.
That is it for this week Round Up and remember you still have the opportunity to make Round Up Bigger and better by sending me some valuable links from around the world wide web. Please remember sharing is caring.
