Explode Traffic and Revenue

Do you ever have the feeling that everyone else is getting traffic to their website, except you? Is your revenue less than what you had hoped for? Do you have any sales and revenues at all? If the answer to even one of these questions is YES — then this article is for you.

Are you ready to kick your website up a notch and get your traffic and revenues into a hyper active mode! Any one of them can make a shocking improvement to your traffic and revenues.

Let's get started:

Tip # 1: Take This In The Right Way, But: Is Your Website Boring? Is it plain and / or drab? Add exciting colors, shorter content paragraphs, professional graphics, banners and ads.

On average, users visiting your home business web site develop an immediate sense of interest (or not) about your site within 10-15 seconds. A lot of long boring text, amateur graphics, layout and design of the site will drive them away almost immediately.

Add lots of action oriented text, designed to prompt them into the action you are asking them to take.

You literally have seconds to grab their attention and keep it before they move on. You have them on your home business web site. Make sure you keep them there!

Tip # 2: If Your Web Site Is A Sales Page – Show Only The Features And Benefits TO THE CUSTOMER. Help them understand what is in it for THEM. How the product will improve, enhance, and make their lives better.

Forget about trying to convince them on how great it is. This WILL NOT CAUSE a single sale to happen. Help them see how purchasing the product will make their lives better to have your product or service.

Tip # 3: For Most Websites, Free Content and Great Content Rules. It continues to be the case that an expectation has been established that internet visitors are absolutely crave free information of as high quality as possible. If it is free, then all the better.

Tip # 4: Get all those ads off your website. Ok, not really, just clean those up so at least they do not look so obvious! Visitors are completely turned off by websites (home based or regular sites) which are full of advertisements.

There are lots of ways to clean the text up (even the Google ads) to blend them into the website by coloration, etc. that not only looks less like an ad, but also closely matches the look of other information on your website.

Tip # 5: Generate more revenue by replacing Google Ads with Affiliate Program links.

You will be pleasantly surprised when your revenue checks increase dramatically from sales contracts versus Google Ad- "cents"!

Tip # 6 Check Your Website Links Over and Over! No matter how careful you are, if you are adding programs, websites, sales opportunities, you will occasionally have a bad link.

If you are a large business, sometimes you can afford …

How Computer Hardware Works

COMPUTER HARDWARE BASICS

MICROPROCESSOR:

Microprocessor is the brain of any computer. It controls all activities inside the computer. Basically it performances 2 types of operations – arithmetic & logical operation (internally), read & write (externally). Read / write operations are performed on 2 types of devices – I / O and memory devices. It uses the "address bus" to select any "location" on these devices, sends a read / write signal over the "control bus" and then the information over the "data bus".

MEMORY DEVICES:

The CPU stores all information in the computer's memory. There are two memory types – RAM & ROM

RAM (Random Access Memory):

This volatile type is a read & write memory device. This loses its contents when power is shut off.

The types of RAM are

· DRAM (Dynamic ram) – is similar to a capacitor, as it tends to lose its contents and hence requires to be refreshed. This is the Computer RAM.

· SRAM (Static ram) – Is faster than Dram and does not require to be refreshed. This is cost and since only a limited amount is used as CACHE memory in the computer.

ROM (Read only memory):

ROM can be programmed using a programmer and then it acts as a "read only" device. This device is used as the textbook for the CPU in the computer and is called ROM BIOS. It stores all the basic information of programming the devices present inside the system as well as the POST (Power On Self Test) sequence. AMIBIOS and AWARD BIOS are the most common ROM BIOS.

The types of ROM are

· PROM (Programmable Read Only Memory)

· EPROM (Erasable & Programmable Read Only Memory)

· FLASH ROM

· EEPROM (Electrically EPROM)

· EAPROM (Electrically Alterable ROM)

I / O DEVICES:

Apart from passive memory devices, there are certain controllers in the system, which assist the CPU in performing various operations. These are referred to as I / O devices. These devices include Interrupt controller, Timer, Ports, DMA Controller, Floppy Drive Controller, CRT Controller etc.

BUSES & EXPANSION SLOTS:

These are the means through which communication between various devices of the computer takes place and the types are as stated below.

ISA (Industry Standard Architecture):

ISA bus consists of a 24-bit address bus and the 16-bit data bus. ISA can support 8MHZ clock speed.

MCA BUS (Micro Channel Architecture):

MCA bus is available either in 16 bit or 32 bit versions. It was developed in a new line of computers called the PS / 2 (personal system 2). The clock speed is slightly faster (10MHZ instead of 8MHZ).

EISA BUS:

EISA has a 32-bit Address and Data bus and 10MHZ CLK speed.

VL BUS / VESA LOCAL BUS:

It is a 32-bit bus which was positioned local to the CPU and hence its name. There before it could support high bus speeds (that of the CPU).

PCI BUS:

PCI has many benefits over other bus types. First of all, it supports 64 …

How To Control Bits That Flow In And Out Of Your Personal Computer – Lan Or Wan Environments

The Internet is too big and complicated to monitor activities and since it's mostly an open public ground, organizations and individuals are responsible for their security issues. The question is; are we safe behind anti-virus software? Do we consider what goes on when those LED's on our ADSL modems blink? Or how many of us really check security or system logs on Windows or network devices? I guess not many people do that.

But we do not acknowledge the Internet as something complex and tough. So maybe we can continue assuming it's as easy as it was and keep ourselves secure at the same time. There's a simple way to do that, called "packet filtering" which comes by with most of the network devices having a WAN interface, including ADSL modems. It basically stops all inbound traffic from the Internet unless you allow it specifically, or open a 'path' by sending data via a specific port which is blocked for inbound by default. Take port 80 for example, nobody from google.com can connect to your computer by default, but when you open your browser and point it to http://www.google.com you simply begin a two-way traffic, and this allows inbound data to your PC.
It's a simple and effective way to protect many PCs connected to the Internet. Such that you'll know what can not get into your PC.

On the other hand you can even monitor all of the traffic, inbound and outbound, any protocol and any port connection using an expensive but effective solution called "ISA Server" . You can even block any program or traffic that can be potentially used by a program with it. But this solution mostly is for organizations that have to maintain security for many PCs.

As the conclusion, security is an important topic, and there are many web pages that can give you detailed information on what to use and how to use to maintain secure connections. You can check manufacturers' pages, like Microsoft, Cisco, US Robotics, LinkSys etc. You can also check my web page http://techpilgrim.awardspace.com for a brief entry on that topic.
Until next time, stay secure. …

Google Pixel Buds Vs Apple AirPods – The Battle of the Earbuds

On October 4, Google introduced its new flagship Pixel phones, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. However, the biggest reason for which Google kept on mocking Apple last year seemed like a joke when Google announced their flagships without the headphone jack. Yes, this time they traded it off for getting IP 67 water resistance rating.

As an alternative Google announced its own new branded wireless earbuds called Pixel Buds. The buds follow in the strides of Apple’s own wireless earbuds, the AirPods, that implies everybody will be comparing the two wireless buds choosing which one to go for. We have assembled this comparison to help you out in your decision.

Specifications

GOOGLE PIXEL BUDS

Price

Getting the greatest obstacle off the beaten path, to begin with, there is very little to compare between these two choices, as the AirPods and Pixel Buds are both estimated at $159. The main issue as of now lies in accessibility since the Pixel Buds will not dispatch until November, and that is if Google does not keep running into any supply issues.

Design

Physically, each organization’s wireless earbuds look fundamentally changed. Apple’s resembles a white theoretical blossom with a long stem and a fat bud that fits in your ear. Google’s then again looks are round and more extensive. Everything is scrunched together. A length of rope likewise fastens Google’s Pixel Buds together, which is a pleasant touch as it implies it could prevent one of the buds from tumbling to the ground. So design wise Pixel Buds have the upper edge. However, AirPods are the one who completes the definition of wireless.

Controls

Both earbuds have tap controls, however, the Pixel Buds offer more. Apple’s AirPods enable you to play and pause music by means of a tap. The Pixel Buds enable you to do that as well, yet they likewise have a touch surface that enables you to swipe crosswise over them to change the volume.

AI Assistants & Translation

Obviously, both earbuds offer each organization’s AI assistants (directed through your cell phone). The AirPods offer Siri and the Pixel Buds offers Google’s Assistant. I believe it is undeniable which is superior: Google’s Assistant. Nevertheless, in case you are a non-English speaker, Siri wins, as it is accessible in numerous more dialects.

In any case, one region with the Pixel Buds wins clearly is their capacity to translate conversations continuously. Nobody has really attempted this component yet, so we have to hold up to perceive how well it functions.

Battery Life

The greatest purpose of the dispute concerning our cell phones or Bluetooth earphones is battery life. …
