Hosting Rated

When it comes to web site hosting, the most important thing is speed and consistent up time.  A great web hosting company is one that you simply don’t notice, because you only notice a web host when something goes wrong; you assume that nothing will go wrong.  After all, it’s not the early days of the internet any more. I liked the way that the site delivers reviews of so many different services.  Let’s face it: web hosting needs are different for every webmaster so you need to choose the one that’s right for you.  The Web Hosting Rating site gives reviews and pluses and minuses of many different web hosts. One of the bonuses of the web site is that it gives a good overview on many subjects related to internet marketing.  I read an article about how to get traffic to your website and found some valuable tips in it.  Another article about managing your email accounts at a host offered me some good information as I’ve struggled in the past with emails.  No matter how much I read about internet marketing, there is so much to learn and every day means another opportunity to...

Adwords Management and Retargeting

When it comes to managing pay per clicks, it’s important that you have a good adwords management partner or consultant.  It’s really the best way to monitor your pay per clicks since it’s really not your businesses’ main source of marketing and the business needs to concentrate on its conversions and keeping up with customer service. An Adwords management company can do so many different things for you.  It will likely have much better reporting available for you and you can concentrate on things like analysis of performance rather than the time consuming process of managing pay per clicks. Another great new form of marketing for your web site is search retargeting.  With retargeting, when somebody visits your web site, your site drops a cookie on the computer of the visitor.  Then, when that visitor goes to a site such as Yahoo weather, your ad is served.  The best thing about retargeting is that it makes your site look much larger and much more important than it actually is, as its unlikely that most small businesses could afford buying banner ads on Yahoo.  That means instant credibility for...

John McCain Finally Gets It

by Bob Bentz Nearly two years ago, this author wrote in this publication that John McCain just didn’t get it. John McCain had just told a reporter during the presidential campaign that when it comes to computers: “I am an illiterate who has to rely on my wife for all of the assistance that I can get.” For most of us that work in the internet business, McCain’s fate was sealed when he said he “couldn’t get on” (a computer) without his wife’s assistance. How could he run the country when he couldn’t get on a computer without his wife’s help? Well, John McCain finally does get it! On Wednesday, Senator McCain launched a new campaign website to provide Arizona voters with information about his campaign. The site is attractive, easy to navigate, and even…youthful. “I’m very excited to see this new release of the web site,” said McCain. “I’m committed to using the latest tools and newest technology to reach voters across Arizona.” It is said that as you get older, you get wiser. And, John McCain is a very wise man. He committed to not make the same mistake in the 2010 Arizona senatorial election that he made in 2008 when President Obama utilized new technology such as the internet, social networking, and mobile marketing while the McCain campaign simply ignored it. Obama not only used new technology, he embraced it. His famous text message announcement of his vice-presidential running mate was sent to 2.9 million voters that chose to opt-in to his mobile marketing database. Not to be out-done, albeit two years late, Senator McCain now has his own text message campaign. Arizonans can text McCain to 69872 to sign up for text message alerts. According to the McCain campaign team, the campaign will utilize texting to inform Arizonans about upcoming events, announce endorsements, and share breaking news—all sent instantly to the mobile phone. A year after the election, with two wars, a sluggish economy, and an unpopular health care bill, maybe John McCain is happy he was still living in the dark ages two years...

Internet Directories Worth Buying

Internet directories are not what they used to be.  It used to be that all you needed to do to get higher rankings on the search engines was to get a bunch of links from other web sites.  Quantity was more important than quality. In this video, Bob Bentz addresses just what directories you should consider purchasing to increase your search engine optimization (SEO) and which ones aren’t worth the trouble or the expense.   Best of the Web Discount Promo Code = CLICKZ15 Bentz thinks that most are not worth bothering with, but does recommend some like Best of the Web (botw.org) and he even offers a 15% promotion code discount by using the promo code...
