How to Distribute Keywords in a Blog Post for Better SEO

All of us who have been in blogosphere are aware of the importance of keywords when it comes to the search engine optimization of the post. If you are using the main keyword at a minimal level, chances of your blog/site being displayed on page 1 on Google for that keyword is tiny. Again, if you are using the keyword too many times, Google will consider it as spam and spamming is not tolerated here. You stand to lose your readers as the text becomes quite artificial and intended for search engines.

Beware of Google Cash Kit Earning Scam (Offline and Online)

Many people in India are being scammed daily with some of the useless products and tricks. The scams may be of online and even offline. A year ago, one of my friend saw a Google earning kit website which claims that it provides you a kit by which you can earn $100 daily from home, and they even promised money back guarantee. He filled the form and ordered the kit which was priced at Rs. 1200, a person called him to verify his address and then he said your kit will be sent in a week. After few days the courier came and he charged Rs. 1200 and gave the kit, but there was nothing as mentioned to be a kit, there was only a CD which had an ebook that’s all. The ebook content that was in the CD is available free of cost

Why Do You Need A Blog For Your Online Business

If you are not blogging for your business then you should be. While many people simply dismiss blogging because of its description as a web diary they are missing a lot of traffic and revenue generating opportunities every day. Are you one of those missing out?

In truth blogs are much more than a simple web diary. They are actually a content management system and/or an easy web site template. Blogging software allows you to begin posting your content to the Internet in minutes and when you harness that ability with an RSS feed you have a powerful traffic magnet.
I have come up with 7 reasons why every business should have a blog and RSS feed.
1. Publishing a regularly updated blog helps you keep in touch with your existing audience and/or customer base. You can publish updates, news, or thoughts in your blog as well as answer questions.
2. A blog can help you attract new customers. Your blog entries (posts or articles) will become fodder for the search engines and will attract new visitors. If your blog answers the visitors question or attracts their interest you have just found another qualified lead.
3. Blogs and RSS feeds often rank higher in search engines than traditional web sites. Search engines love blogs and RSS feeds. If you design your blog properly then every time you update it the search engines are notified. Even if you don’t regularly ping most search engines will revisit blogs more frequently. Plus the very organization of a blog lends itself to spidering and good search engine ranking.
4. Blogs can help you establish or build your reputation in a particular field. As your blog grows you will demonstrate your knowledge in your chosen niche.
5. Blogs and RSS feeds are good revenue streams. You can add pay-per-click ads, affiliate ads, or sell ad space on your blogs. In fact, many PPC companies also provide the ability to add PPC to your RSS feeds.
6. Blogs are great ways to generate leads. Even if you don’t want to put any advertising on your blog you can use it to promote or capture leads for your own programs. These are great leads as the fact that they came from your blog means they are already interested in your topic and predisposed to your individual message.
7. Creating your own blog is the easiest way to establish a presence on the Internet and creating an RSS feed is even easier. In fact, it is also the cheapest way to get started on the Internet as there are a number of free blogging sites out there. I started out with http://blogger.com and usually recommend them but have heard others point to several other top blogging sites as well. The blogging software that I now use is WordPress and also happens to be free. In fact, most web hosts now offer WordPress (or other free blogging software) as a free site add-on through Fantastico. Installing WordPress from scratch is quick and easy but Fantastico makes it even easier. Blogs created at Blogger have an RSS feed created for them and WordPress also creates feeds in several variations automatically.
As you can see there are several benefits to starting your own blog and RSS feed. If you can count that many benefits from an Internet marketing technique that is also free and easy then you are foolish not to begin using it for yourself.

Only Independent Women Have Successful Relationships?


indepenent women

What men really want ? Have you ever realized how men behave differently with women who are independent (Here I mean financially independent women ) and those who are earning moderately and those who are just home makers.
  • Few days back I was wondering on how the society rate men based on their ability to support the family financially. Later, it made me think few things about men also. I think Men rate women based on their careers.
  • In relationships women face different career choices based on the situation. Usually, it happens during the time when you choose to have kids. Sometimes, you will find women leaving their careers after having kids. And those women who wish to go on a job hunt after few years of kid growing up find it extremely difficult to get a hold on their careers .

What To Do When Your Husband Cheats On You

What To Do If Your Man Cheats On You ?
Any normal woman would say Dump him. I have read and heard a lot of real life stories on how relationships suffer if your man cheats on you.
Being a woman I have strong thoughts and opinions on to what extent a woman can forgive her man after discovering his unfaithfulness towards the relationship . It’s a normal saying “People do make mistakes” But is cheating on your partner is really just about a mistake?

When Your Husband Cheats On You:
In some cases where there are certain doubts on whether your man is really cheated on you? Or it’s just mere misunderstanding? Sometimes, you even go to the extent of searching for any signs that your man cheating on you

Is It Really Possible To Gain Trust Of Your Partner After Cheating On Him/Her?


why men cheat

Do men in power easily get away after cheating on their wives ?
Do “we the people” rate our politicians based on their personal or professional lives?
My Take On It :-
I personally don’t really give a shit on what these politicians are up to in their personal lives– It’s not about why politicians cheat ? They cheat almost for the same reason like anyone else does. Point here is why men cheat or why women cheat ?
Recently, I read the news about one more politician cheating on his wife.
Jenny Sanford, wife of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford , speaks about her husband’s recent affair admission.

If you can afford a prostitute, you can afford a housekeeper!


paying for sex

Yeah sounds interesting! Cindy Crawford has a perfect advice for cheating husbands who look for prostitutes to satisfy their never ending sexual desires!!!!!!!!!!!

She referred to those women who have to manage their household stuff with their professional life. They end up getting exhausted and hence they show less interest in their personal lives!

BUT HOLD ON! If the husband is well aware of the fact that his wife gets eXhausted because of overload of work and don’t show interest in fulfilling their sexual desires then does that mean they will look for prostitutes to satisfy their carnal desires??? That’s completely ridiculous! Instead of helping your wife in sharing her workload he would look out for prostitutes to satisfy his desires?

It’s All about Betrayals and Lies



Why men cheat ?” Nobody can figure
why men cheatSo I get to know one more incident of a celebrity cheating on his wife. Great Great !
After witnessing Ronnie Wood romancing with his daughter’s age girl, then Tiger woods admitting to infidelity . And now the media has recently discovered John Terry’s extra marital affair . The media has enjoyed their share of publicizing every bit of detail related to their affairs .Even after the court introduced injunction, where the media is not allowed to report any information regarding any kind of particular topic, still the public is aware of the inside information regarding John terry’s extra marital affair.
The majority of men will have a list of excuses where they will justify their infidelity. No matter how

A Love Story


depression,loneliness,lonelygirl

I don’t really bother to read love stories, but today I had some free time in hand so came across this lovely love story that will touch your heart
A girl in love asked her boyfriend..
Girl: Tell me… who do you love most in this world?
Boy: You, of course!
Girl: In your heart, what am I to you?
Boy: The boy thought for a moment and looked intensly in her eyes and
said, "You are my rib. In the Bible, it was said that God saw that
Adam was lonely, during his sleep; God took one of Adam’s rib and
created Eve. Every man has been searching for his missing rib, only
when you find the woman of your life; you’ll no longer feel the
lingering ache in your heart."
After their wedding, the couple had a sweet and happy life for a while.

Thank You For Sleeping With My Husband


sexual encounterWhenever you find men cheating on their wives or girlfriends you tend to question who’s fault is it anyway? You can’t really pass a judgment on anyone until and unless you are well aware of the inside story. Every day you read about celebrities betraying their partners. All of us love to read about any personal information of top celebrities , politicians or big business tycoons . The fact remains most of us don’t really give a damn about their wives or girlfriends who have been betrayed. How does it really affect us?






Lost Touch But Still Think About Them?


friendship

Sometimes, I wonder it’s not that why we loose touch with our friends it’s just that with time as we grow – we realize who are our true friends and maintain our friendship with only “few and true”ones. Thankfully, I do have “one” friend with whom I can laugh or cry and share any of my personal stuff and be rest assured I am in good hands. Moreover, it’s not at all about for how many years you know each other, it’s all about how strong your friendship is. And no matter how many times you fight with each other, still after a while; somehow you get back to each other.
All of us go through ups and down, this is the time when god tells you who are your true friends. The one who offers you guidance and unconditional support in times when nobody is there with you.
In the journey of life we keep some friends forever and with others we loose touch. But do we wonder why and how it happens? I sometime introspect the ways we move on with our lives and forget our school friends, college friends and then when we start working we loose touch with our colleagues.




Is Sharing Passwords With Your Partner A New Age Of Intimacy?


privacy in a relationship

In my opinion the most important tool for any relationship is “TRUST” . Once you are in a relationship, you promise to share your happiness and sorrows with each other but how many of us are comfortable in sharing their privacy?
If you are in a relationship then often you are asked to tell the password of your email accounts or bank accounts. The very question is do you need to share your passwords to prove your commitment towards your partner. The very question that pops up on my mind Is What causes the need to demand your partner to disclose his/her passwords? Is it a matter of your lack of faith on your partner? Or it’s a sign of insecurity towards your partner?
Some people question that why do couples who are committed or are married needs to be under surveillance all the time. Some people demand space before and

Do Men Need More Physical Intimacy Than Women


problems in relationships

Before you start reading my views about What Men Want, I wanted to make it very clear that this doesn’t imply for every man or woman.
Do men regard Sex to be the most important factor in order to get emotionally attached to the woman? We have read and heard a lot of research outcomes where it’s clearly stated that majority of the men rate their relationship based on their physical intimacy with their partners. On the other hand women consider emotional bonding at a higher level than “Sex”.
Though men also need to be appreciated, cuddled, wanted and emotionally attached. Women regard emotionally intimacy in a different way, they need to share their feelings and need to spend quality time with their partner. Many couples face problems in relationships and remain dissatisfied due to their different perspective towards their desire of feeling loved and secured in a relationship. Relationship issues are inevitable, many couples don’t do much about it and with time the hurt keeps on adding up.
It’s important for every couple to listen to each other and understand the way they want to be loved and cared. Instead of focusing on what you want from your man or woman, first try to eliminate your partner’s loneliness, hurt or emotionally distressed state of mind. Every couple go through relationship problems and it’s vital to seek relationship counseling at the right time. So before it gets too late start your relationship from the scratch and nurture it

What Do Men Lust For

Men Want Healthier Women Over Skeleton Look
What kind of body men like remains a big question among women. You will find so many celebrities undergoing plastic surgery to enhance their looks or to hide their age and even to look slimmer. Needless to say, it’s a dream of every woman to look attractive and be appreciated by her man. Based on my experience I remember this incident with my husband, we were traveling and there was this skinny girl (technically speaking she looked underweight) and my husband said “when will you be like her” I was like woosh give me a break, even if someone pays me million bucks to be like that I will never want to have that skeleton figure. Even after all these years still my husband refers to that girl and teases me! But I don’t give a shit!
 

Who Says Women Want To Date Rich Men?


Who Says Women Want Rich Men?
The way Women ponder what Men want in the same way Men contemplate what women want, personally speaking you will never understand in words. You need to be in a relationship to understand what men want. It’s not about getting married to the right person; it’s just matter of reaching to a point where you understand each other’s wants or expectations.Before you start reading my generalization about what women want, be advised that I can’t speak out for every single woman on earth! I respect and understand the likings or disliking’s of every individual. The core expectations of any relationship whether it’s with your family members, friends or with your partner are love, trust and care. I won’t be talking about these at all!!

Story Of Four Wives

Once upon a time there was a rich King who had four wives.

He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of
delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.

He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to neighboring kingdoms.
However, he feared that one day she would leave him for another.

He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidant and was always kind, considerate and patient with
him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she would help him get through the
difficult times.

The King’s 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his
wealth and kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife. Although she loved him deeply,
he hardly took notice of her !

One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought of his luxurious life and
wondered, “I now have four wives with me, but when I die, I’ll be all alone.”

Thus, he asked the 4th wife, “I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and
showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?”
“No way!”, replied the 4th wife, and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut like a
sharp knife right into his heart.

The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, “I have loved you all my life. Now that I’m dying,
will you follow me and keep me company?” “No!”, replied the 3rd wife. “Life is too good!
When you die, I’m going to remarry!”

His heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife, “I have always turned to you for help and you’ve always been there for me.
When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?”

“I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!”, replied the 2nd wife. “At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave” Her answer struck him like a bolt of lightning, and the King was devastated.

Then a voice called out: “I’ll go with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go.”

The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was very skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect.  Greatly grieved, the King said, “I should have taken  much better care of you when I had the chance!”

In truth, we all have the 4 wives in our lives:

Our 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in  making it look good,
it will leave us when we die.

Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will l all go to others.

Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest
they can stay by us is up to the grave.

And our 1st wife is our Soul.  Often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world.
However, our Soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go.

Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of us that will follow us to the
throne of God and continue with us throughout Eternity.

Do You Really Know What You Are Capable Of


online marketing - successful business
Some inspiring words that my hubby’s grandfather told him, words that are simple yet influential. He shared his story of life – his mistakes, his regrets and a lot more. He said whatever mistakes I made just don’t make those mistakes. It’s certain that you will have your share of mistakes based on your life experiences. This made me think on what kind of approach we have towards our lives and how crucial it’s to realize certain important aspects.
Today after a long time I felt a “zeal” to write something about how each one of us are leading our lives and how many of us are focussed. How the most influential people have achieved success and attained their goals. How one human being is more focussed than another? The philosophy behind all this is far complicated than it looks like.
The only place in your body that help you attain your goals is your mind. When you lead your life there are many distractions and obstacles that can divert your path from your goals. But if you have control within your mind you will become more determined to achieve your goal and be focussed in life.
Your mind dictates your day to day activity on how you react to certain situations in life. Take charge of your mind with a

RICH TRIBUTE PAID TO STEVE JOBS,APPLE FOUNDER

FOUNDER
Apple on Wednesday announced the death of its visionary co-founder Steve Jobs.'We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,' the company's board of directors said in a statement.'Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.'The Silicon Valley icon who gave the world the iPod and the iPhone resigned as CEO of the world's largest technology corporation in August, handing the reins to current chief executive Tim Cook.

  Jobs had battled cancer in 2004 and underwent a liver transplant in 2009 after taking a leave of absence for unspecified health problems. He took another leave of absence in January, his third since his health problems began, before resigning as CEO six weeks ago. Jobs became Apple's chairman and handed the CEO job over to his hand-picked successor, Tim Cook.The news Apple fans and shareholders had been dreading came the day after Apple unveiled its latest version of the iPhone, just one in a procession of devices that shaped technology and society while Jobs was running the company.
   Jobs started Apple with a high school friend in a Silicon Valley garage in 1976, was forced out a decade later and returned in 1997 to rescue the company. During his second stint, it grew into the most valuable technology company in the world with a market value of $351 billion. Only Exxon Mobil, which makes it money extracting and refining oil instead of ideas, is worth more.Cultivating Apple's countercultural sensibility and a minimalist design ethic, Jobs rolled out one sensational product after another, even in the face of the late-2000s recession and his own failing health. He helped change computers from a geeky hobbyist's obsession to a necessity of modern life at work and home, and in the process he upended not just personal technology but the cellphone and music industries. For transformation of American industry, he ranks among his computer-age contemporary, Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates and other creative geniuses such as Walt Disney that left an indelible imprint on the world. Jobs died as Walt Disney Co.'s largest shareholder, a by-product of his decision to sell computer animation studio Pixar in 2006.
   Perhaps most influentially, Jobs in 2001 launched the iPod, which offered '1,000 songs in your pocket.' Over the next 10 years, its white earphones and thumb-dial control seemed to become more ubiquitous than the wristwatch. In 2007 came the touch-screen iPhone, joined a year later by Apple's App Store, where developers could sell iPhone 'apps' which made the phone a device not just for making calls but also for managing money, editing photos, playing games and social networking. And in 2010, Jobs introduced the iPad, a tablet-sized, all-touch computer that took off even though market analysts said no one really needed one.

STEVE JOBS’SPEECH AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY IN 2005

                   STEVE JOBS’SPEECH AT
 STANFORD UNIVERSITY IN 2005
I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.

The first story is about connecting the dots.I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?  It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: 'We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?'
