Chrome TV: Google Chrome Extension

I do not often watch live television over the Internet, I have a Dish Network system at home and TV's in three rooms but my computer room is not one of them. When CNN covered the Chilean miner rescue was one of the main times I wanted to keep tabs of live TV while I was working on my computers. This is where the Chrome TV extension for Google Chrome comes in. This extension allows you to search for and tune in to live television feeds from across the Internet, I was happy to see it found and fed my CNN live over the Internet where I was able to listen in and keep tabs on it while I continued my work.

News, Weather, HBO, Cartoons the Chrome TV toolbar extension for Chrome lists dozens of channels you can tune into live and watch over your Chrome browser. This is a great way to have some background noise or feed playing while you multitask and get some work done, or if you need to keep track of sports you will find ESPN streaming live as well.

When you first install the Chrome TV extension you will see a little TV icon show up on the right hand side of your browser URL bar, click on this icon and you will see a list of channels present themselves and you also get a search bar to find a specific television or cable station you are looking for:

You can find local TV stations from around the world and a quick test showed dozens of television stations from Africa, Asia or Europe.

As mentioned, I may only use this plugin for News as news is among the only things I consistently like like having on in the background. I like knowing what is happening in the world and CNN tends to be on at least 12 hours a day in my house downstairs in the background anyway.

If you want to watch live television over the Internet then try the Google Chrome TV Extension it may be just what you are looking for. …

Building SEO

I'm fairly new to blogging, I started at the end of October 2010 I believe. I started because because I wanted to promote the things I make but it has turned into something more than that, I find I really enjoy blogging. As a began this journey I started doing research on how best to promote and market. I have a bachelor's degree in marketing but I honestly do not know much about online marketing as I went to school 20 years ago. I keep reading about SEO, Search Engine Optimization. I had a general idea what it meant but I've been pretty foggy about the whole thing. I went to a sales and marketing conference yesterday and the meaning of SEO became clear to me so I thought I would share what I would find out in terms that would help people like me, who are not necessarily as intern savvy as a lot of people .

SEO is basically getting your name or your business's name on to the first page of search results when you do a search on Google and other search engines. The way you go about doing that is getting your name out as much as possible. For example, you have a blog or Etsy shop and you want people to find it when they search for your name or product, the way it will come up on the search engine is related to how much it is out on the internet. That's why you want to have a Facebook page, that gets your name out there, then when someone likes you it goes on their Facebook page, each time you SEO goes up a little bit. When you are on Twitter if people re-tweet your tweets or mention you, your SEO goes up a little. It's almost like building a pyramid. Something else I just read about is Google is now looking at how many links you get. So you will want to create content that people will want to link on their blogs or Facebook pages to raise your SEO. It does not happen immediately, I've noticed it takes around a month for Google to start finding you so do not give up if you do not see immediate results. I hope that helps, it helped me figure out how I want to get my name out there more and how I want to do that now that it's a little clearer for me. …

The Ever Evolving World of Television Technology

Television has evolved a long way since they were introduced to public. Decades ago, television sets managed to captivate the hearts of people by offering something more amazing and inspiring than radio. The ability to display animation, live moving images from early cartoons to people displayed inside a small box. Television sets eventually became a home staple, adopting the nickname the TV.

While early television sets displayed images in black and white, the concept of the television set soon grew and evolved. Not only did color television took over the world of home entertainment, but new add-ons emerged pioneered by VHS systems, early video game consoles and one of the more recent but aging technologies the DVD player.

Color television sets themselves shown and continue to suffer constant change. As technology changes and advances continued color television sets evolved from the old round screen to the more recent flat screen TV sets. Screens changed from round to flat but new screen display technologies surfaced including CRT, LCD and Plasma.

Enter Digital television and the HDTV revolution

As home entertainment technology continued to evolve along came digital television; the ability to broadcast and receive television signals based on numbers rather than frequency waves. And with Digital television appeared HDTV. HDTV stands for high definition television sitting on top of the current home television quality scale. These gadgets have the ability to display breath taking high resolution images otherwise impossible to be displayed in older analog and current standard definition digital television sets known as SDTVs.

These television sets have more than just the ability to display superior image quality, they feature the wide screen aspect ratio of theaters. Image is just one of the features that is appealing about HDTVs, sound quality is also impressive since most of them are 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound ready further enhancing the experience by offering the option of creating a real surround sound audio space provided that 5.1 Dolby Digital set of speakers are used, properly tuned and placed.

One problem with HDTVs is the fact that in order to watch high definition television you need high definition sources that can include a HD DVD or Blu-Ray player for movies or an HDTV ready tuner or converter for broadcast. Which increases the cost of having a complete High Definition home system even more expensive.

As HDTVs continue to revolutionize digital television, the technical aspects relating to high definition television continue to confuse consumers as this technology develops more and more. …

When to Choose a Mini Site

Mini sites are websites that contain very few pages; usually only one to three. These include the landing page (main page), a thank you page (for when the customer makes a purchase), and perhaps an about page (where they can find ways to get in touch with you, or find more information about you, or the website).

Why a Mini Site

You may wonder how you can make money with these sites, but the truth is that these sites work just as well as a large website or blog. This is simply because you are optimizing the site for one particular keyword or keyword phrase. This means that the traffic that you are going to get, is very targeted. This results in a much higher click through rate, and visitors are much more likely to make a purchase.

Mini sites are quick and easy to set up, and they have the potential to earn you just as much revenue as any large site that contains thousands of pages.

So when would you set up a mini site rather than a big website?

Single Product

Any time you have a single product that you want to promote, you would create a mini site to help you promote it. The first reason is this is all you need, plus it will help you obtain highly targeted traffic, as you are optimizing it for only 1 keyword, or a keyword phrase.

New Entrepreneur

Mini sites are a great place to start if you are new to the whole online marketing world, simply because they are easy to set up and maintain. You can even set these websites up on the free website hosting sites like BlinkWeb or Yola, as the mini sites do not require that you have a large number of files to upload.

Therefore, the only costs that would be involved with creating these mini sites, would be your own unique domain name.

Targeted Traffic

Mini sites are also great if you do a lot of paid advertising for your website. This ensures that when your visitor lands on your website, they are not bombarded with multiple choices, but rather they are able to concentrate on the one product. This usually results in more sales for you, and gives you more bang for your advertising buck.

Drive Traffic

These sites can also be used to drive traffic to your other sites. For example, if you have a large website where you sell a lot of electronics such as cameras, computers and more. A mini site would allow you to set up small directories where one site would focus on cameras, and another on computers. The information on these sites would be product reviews or testimonials. Then when they want to make the purchase, they would be re-directed to your main website.

Why would you do this? Because the links coming from these mini sites, count as valuable back links. There are many more uses for mini sites, but these are a …

Comparison of PPC and SEO Optimization

Lots of journalists, pundits and 'experts' online say that search engine optimization (SEO) is free. However this is not true. Whilst it will not necessarily cost you much money, implementing SEO in the right way will consume time and effort on your part. That said, SEO done right will deliver far more benefits, consistently and over a much longer term than you will get through alternative search engine marketing (SEM) and other online advertising techniques.

When your site is receiving 'free' hits and traffic from organic search engine results, and links on other websites, there is not much need (in many cases * no need *) to spend additional dollars on pay advertising. SEO done right therefore, will save you money. PPC and other marketing campaigns will usually work only while you are paying the provider. SEO on the other hand carries on working long after you stop investing in it, provided that it is content centered SEO.

For many sites on tight budgets (despite all of them?), Correct and effective SEO can be the difference between survival and death of an internet business. Because of this, it really is worth spending some time and effort in the planning and development stages of your website, to build SEO into the DNA of the site's design and architecture. This will only pay dividends in the long term.

Adopting SEO from the beginning and as a central component of your online strategy will make many other things easier in the long run. When your web designers, your technical team, and your marketing department are mindful of SEO in all their decision making, the rewards you will get from SEO will be many times more than if you only try to implement SEO as an afterthought.

Below is a summary of the pros and cons of PPC and other search engine marketing strategies.

PPC Advantages:
* Can provide immediate traffic from the second you start the campaign
* Is easier to start up, with most search engines providing you tools
* Is easier to manage because you can just turn it off and on

PPC Disadvantages:
* Can become very expensive very quickly, particularly for expensive or popular keywords with low conversion rates
* In placements, the top positions will go to those advertisers paying the most
* There is not much trust in PPC as there is in organic results
* Once you stop your ads, the visitors stop coming

SEO Advantages:
* Can be significantly less expensive to start
* The benefits are more longer term and sustainable
* Helps to increase trust for your website and brand
* The click through rate is often higher than with PPC
* The increase in your website traffic will be more natural, and depends on your site's content

SEO Disadvantages:
* Achieving the initial results can take a bit of time
* It takes brain power, and effort to get it right
* There are no guarantees of success.

Mastering Your Future, Or a Brief Introduction to Internet Marketing – Part I

If you're like most of the billions of people in the world, you think of "work" as the place you go five days a week, 8.5 hours a day. There's a commute, traffic, a boss you do not like, coworkers that are unhelpful, and a MOUNTAIN of stress. I'm sure you've thought "Work is lousy. The next day you get back up and go back to work.

Let's say that work becomes so much, and you decide that you're going to fire your boss, get a new job, and grow rich … the only problem is, you do not have any idea what job market you're headed for, or what kind of job you're going to try to get. Using your handy internet connection, fueled by coffee, you head to on over to Google, and start a late night of investigating jobs. By the end of the night, you've found THOUSANDS of work opportunities, but most of them are "Work from Home" opportunities. You're skeptical about the claims made on these pages about the fantastic incomes their members are seeing working only an hour a day.

That's fair. You're right to be skeptical. You'd be crazy to believe it all. But somewhere in you, this essential truth begins to arise: Some people really ARE making a living online. Not nearly everyone that tries, but some people are living out their dreams, working only when they want. When you realize that you were almost considering it, you probably figure that it's definitely time for bed. You can not sleep. You're too busy wondering if it really could work.

Here's a fantastic starting point:

If you've got a few of the programs that sounded good to you written down, great. If not, that's okay. Find a site offering reviews of programs from people that have paid for them. It's the best way to find out what is, or is not, a scam. Check out the programs you looked at, or find a few to be interested in. I used to recommend WorkAtHomeWatchdog, but it sees the site is not still running. I'm sure a quick search [http://www.google.com/webhp#hl=en&q=affiliate+marketing+site+reviews&aq=f&oq=&aqi=&fp=KxYPMM6r3XA] for "affiliate marketing site reviews" will get you something similar.

Find one thing to try. Go for something well-liked. Any program * can * work, some are just easier than others for the average person to succeed at. When you're looking at the programs, consider these things:

Are there startup costs or recurring fees? Will you need a website of your own? How much time does it require you to put in? Is there a trial period, a money-back guarantee, or both? How much are you willing to invest in your business to get started? How realistically can this program get you to your goal income? Does it let you use any special skills you may already have?

Pick a program that meets your criteria and is well rated, and plunge in. Soon, you could be leaving the boss behind.

Sennheiser MM 400 Stereo Bluetooth Headset Reviews

I'm definitely a gadget person. Anything new in gadgets, I have to have it while it's still hot and brand new in the market, and I have tried most things out there. The Sennheiser MM 400 Bluetooth Headset is my latest discovery and my latest obsession. A bit on the pricey side, but it describes every penny in my opinion.

You'll be wondering why: well, for quite a few reasons. First of all, the Bluetooth connection that the Senheiser MM 400 is able to make is superb! High quality and strong! I would not be exaggerating if I said it's better than any other Bluetooth device I have ever tried, not to speak of how long it is able to hold that connection for. Again, the performance is so much superior to most other Bluetooth devices I have tried. And believe me, I've tried a lot of them!

Then the stereo sound of those Senheiser MM 400 headsets is just terrific. Granted, Senheiser is a huge name in audio and this is for a reason. This product does not disappoint and I can now see where all the raving critiques are coming from.

I have already used it in so many instances – works great with my iPhone, on my PC, even on Skype. Fantastic sound every single time, and we all know how easy it is for Skype to sound bad and full of static. I even plugged it on my phone and PC at the same time once, and the sound was still impeccable. Very impressed!

Another thing: the design of the Senheiser MM 400 headset is so cool. It looks minimalist and futuristic all at once, and more importantly, it is extremely comfortable to wear. It has a very cushiony feel which I like a lot, and it has been specifically designed to provide this sense of comfort when you wear it. You can literally use it for a long time and not feel any fatigue or discomfort on your head or around your ears, as it often happens with so many headsets.

But the coolest thing about it in my opinion is what I left for the end: Senheiser MM 400 has an awesome design feature that allows you to turn it into a wired headset any time you want or need to. Example example: when you are flying on a plane.

This is particularly important to anyone who flies a lot on business or otherwise. The flight attendees ask for all electronic and wireless devices to be turned off before take-off and landing, but thanks to this cool feature, you can keep using your Senheiser MM 400 without a problem, simply by activating this feature that turns it into a wired headset. You keep that going for as long as you like or need to, and you can then turn it back into wireless just as easily and trouble-free. How handy is that for someone who flies a lot!

All in all, it is a …
