Rent Books, Don’t Buy

Category: Facts,Information

In life, there are many different things that we crave yet we do not really need. One of the perfect examples of this would be in books. Truth be told, when people buy school books, reading books and whatnot, it does not happen very often that the reader will pick that book up again and read it over and over. The usual scenario is that the book is lot in the recesses of your shelves at home, only to gather dust and slowly deteriorate. Thus, it does not make much sense to purchase books that will only be used once, especially now when prices are skyrocketing due to high inflation.

Instead of allowing that to happen, the most practical course of action is to rent books. Not only is this alternative much cheaper than actually purchasing them, but it also lessens wastage of products. At the same time, you can cycle through different books much faster because you will have more spending money. For bookworms this can be a dream come true because they can immediately get new reading material as soon as possible without having to worry too much about expenses.

The only downside with renting books is that you do not have the feeling of owning a brand new book. Some of the material that you rent out may also be slightly damaged. For some people, this is a big issue but if you can look past that, you will ultimately be able to enjoy much more than you think.

Links: a tricky subject

To get a decent ranking these days, you need to do a fair amount of work on your link profile. You can optimise your pages as far as you like, but without the reputation indicator of a good links profile, your SEO plans are not going to get you very far.

The topic of links is a very tricky one for those new to SEO to get their heads around. Links are far from simple. They’re not simple to obtain, and they’re definitely not simple to work into your rankings calculation. Even experienced search engine optimisation experts have difficulty judging what difference a particular link is going to make to a site’s SEO.

Links were once judged in a fairly democratic fashion. One link counted as one popularity vote. This system was a simple one, and made things simple for sites in terms of search engine optimisation. If a site owner wanted to get ahead in the search engines and had completed their on-page SEO, all they had to do was arrange for a few more links to point to their site. One link, one vote.

Ahoy there!

Category: Audio,News,Piracy

Yep, those bloody pirates have struck again! But the British police were right to save the day as they conducted a dawn raid in Cardiff, Welsh and arrested three people suspected of involvement in Internet-based music and film piracy rings. Two men (one of which is the ring leader) and a woman were said to be part of the biggest suppliers of pirated music and films in Britain, earning about 3,000 pounds (6,173 $) a month. Now I understand how these cyber thieves find the piracy business a lucrative one. Too bad it�s considered illegal and unethical. But piracy is not going to end unless people stop buying from them. Just some food for thought, folks.

Thanks to gamers from all over and l33t-speak (that�s hacker language for the laymen out there) shout — “w00t!” — has just been named as the “Word of the Year” by the Merriam-Webster Online Web Site. According to the Merriam-Webster Web site, the word �w00t!� (spelled with two zero�s instead of two letter O�s) is an acronym for �We owned the other team,� but is mainly used as an interjection to express joy, most especially in the case of triumph.

Such as other coded languages, l33t-speak was developed for exclusivity so as to make it harder to detect hackers� online conversations. And as the nature of speakers of coded languages, despite the popularity of “w00t!,� I�m sure that these guys have moved on and have coined another term to substitute for it. But I�m sure that whatever that new term is, it would eventually get out of its exclusivity and may even be the next catch phrase of 2008.

Wise Decisions in Building Your Website for SEO

Category: Blogging tools

SEO Book

The purpose of establishing our website will be the initiating part which will lead towards proper conceptualization of a website and establishment on the web. Today, people build sites plainly for the sake of showing off that they have one. But overall, unless the owners of that website know for a fact that they have more things to do to market and increase visibility, chances are the whole effort will go for naught.

There are benefits and powers that a website can provide. Most of them are not unleashed if the webmaster does not know which online tools they can use to bolster the site’s capabilities. Putting up a website is one thing but growing it is another. It is like a small business that will never grow unless you know the proper strings to pull in order for it to function satisfactorily.
