Who Do You Trust? Website Security Certificates

Posted on Posted in internet, technology, website

We have warmed up to the ideas of banking and shopping online, partly because we understand the technology a little better and, partly because we tend to trust big institutions. But, mostly because more and more brave pioneers began using the new technology without being ateen or suffering other terrible consequences.

We can feel even better about trusting online banking and shopping if we better understand the Internet's definition of trust. On the Internet, trust is established by an organization's reputation but, more importantly by their web site's security certificate.

Do you remember Ralphie's Ovaltine secret decoder ring? He really, really, really had to have it so he could understand the secret radio message! Of course, Internet encryption is vastly more complex but the basic idea is the same.

HTTPS AND SSL

HTTP is the default protocol that your browser uses to communicate with web servers. You have probably seen a web address or URL (uniform resource locater) look like this: "http://www.southsidetech.com."

You do not have to type the http: // part because it is assumed. Your browser fills this part in for you automatically.

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer, it does two things:

  1. Encrypts your data, which means no one can see what the website sends to your browser or what your browser sends to the website.
  2. It authenticates the web site. In other words it certifies that the web site is actually owned by the entity that claims to own it.

HTTPS is HTTP plus SSL. It means the web page at that address uses SSL to encrypt data and authenticate the website. Usually the link you use to get to a secured site is programmed with the https: // prefix. Otherwise, you would need to type this part of the address yourself because it is not the browsers default protocol.

When you see the little lock next to a web site's address in your browser's address bar, or you see "https" at the beginning of the address, this means that you are using encrypted communications.

Certificates

A Certificate is a document that a website shows a browser to authenticate its identity. It "certifies" that the website is who it says it is. They are issued by a "Certificate Authority" (CA), a company who will verify for the browser that a particular website's certificate can be trusted. All web browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox, etc.) come pre-loaded with security files for Certificate Permissions which opinion they will trust.

The website owner must generate a Certificate Signing Request and send it to a trusted CA. The CA then verifies the website's ownership and "signs" the security certificate. Once issued the web site owner installs the certificate on their web server. It includes owner information like organization name, address, etc. and public and private encryption keys.

Public and Private Keys

A private key is a secret password that the website it is known by only the website and the CA. This is how the CA can vouch for the website. …

Impact Of Technology In Banking

Posted on Posted in internet, technology

In the world of banking and finance nothing stands still. The largest change of all is in the, scope of the business of banking. Banking in its traditional from is concerned with the acceptance of deposits from the customers, the lending of surplus of deposited money to suitable customers who wish to borrow and transfer of funds. Apart from traditional business, banks now a days provide a wide range of services to satisfy the financial and non financial needs of all types of customers from the smallest account holder to the largest company and in some cases of non customers. The range of services offered differences from bank to bank depending primarily on the type and size of the bank.

RESERVE BANK'S EARLY INITIATIVES
As a central bank in a developing country, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has adopted development of the banking and financial market as one of its prime objectives. "Institutional development" was the hallmark of this approach from 1950s to 1970s. In the 1980s, the Reserve Bank focused on "improvements in the productivity" of the banking sector. Being convinced that technology is the key for improving productivity, the Reserve Bank took several initiatives to popularize usage of technology by banks in India.

Periodically, almost once in five years since the early 1980s, the Reserve Bank appointed committees and working groups to decide on and recommend the appropriate use of technology by banks to give the circumstances and the need. These committees are as follows:
-Rangarajan committee -1 in early 1980s.
-Rangarajan committee -11 in late 1980s.
-Saraf working group in early 1990s.
-Vasudevan working group in late 1990s.
-Barman working group in early 2000s.

Based on the recommendations of these committees and working groups, the Reserve Bank issued viable guidelines for the banks. In the 1980s, usage of technology for the back office operations of the banks predominated the scene. It was in the form of accounting of transactions and collection of MIS. In the inter-bank payment systems, it was in the form of clearing and settlement using the MICR technology.

Two momentous decisions of the Reserve Bank in the 1990s changed the scenario for ever there are:
a) The prescription of compulsory usage of technology in full measure by the new private sector banks as a precondition of the license and
b) The establishment of an exclusive research institute for banking technology institute for development and research in Banking Technology.

As the new private sector banks came on the scene as technology-savvy banks and offered several innovative products at the front office for the customers based on technology, the demonstration effect addressed on the reset of the banks. Multi channel offerings like machine based (ATMs and pc-Banking), card based (credit / Debit / Smart cards), Communication based (Tele-Banking and Internet Banking) ushered in Anytime and Anywhere Banking by the banks in India. The IDRBT has been instrumental in establishing a safe and secure state of the art communication backbone in the of the Indian Financial …

SEO Books And Affiliate Marketing Ebooks

Posted on Posted in internet, seo, technology

SEO Books are available on the market since the popularity of Google, the worlds largest and Fastest growing Internet Company. With SEO Books topping first the Affiliate marketing Ebooks stands second. Here we will be looking at both, The SEO Books and Affiliate Marketing Ebooks which are hot in the market not only in sales but in content too.

SEO Books That top the Industry

The first SEO book which we bought and read through from start to end was that of Brad Callen. The SEO book came literally free for its content. It blew our mind as it gave out a lot of content which many people thought was obvious but never implemented. The books which he gave out free cost a lot of money elsewhere.

There are very few books which are available on SEO in the market. The reason is the Changing trends in SEO technology today. What works today does not seem to work tomorrow. Every thing changes in a few minutes on the internet and so does SEO.

Affiliate Marketing Ebooks is another Story altogether.

It started with eBay and then Clickbank and then CJ and today there are a lot of sites doing the Affiliate marketing thing. When it comes to affiliate marketing ebooks there are a lot of people to choose from. It’s just the question of who is giving you the inside information. Claims are sky high, but results are negligible when it comes to those street side writers on Affiliate marketing. Choosing the right author is the key.

With 1000’s of books in the market, the key is always finding the right person with the right information before you buy any ebook online. Read the reviews and see that you are getting what you need now and also in the future. If the book is going to give you only what you know, then the investment is not worth it after all.…

Internet Marketing Training – The Key to Internet Profits

Posted on Posted in internet

Have you just started your own internet business and are confused about the best techniques to market your business?

OR

Do you have an internet business that is going now?

If either of these questions apply to you then this article may be for you.

Training is one of the most important elements, if not the most important element, of creating a successful internet business. There are many training resources in the internet marketplace today, but many are either too expensive or a waste of time.

How do you find a training package that meets your financial and information needs?

Personal Observation

Take some time to view websites that interest you. There is an art to internet marketing. Notice what you like about sites that tempt you to buy. What intrigued you about the site? How it is designed. Is it easy to read? How does the site draw you in?

Personal observation is one of the most important aspects of internet marketing training. Always be aware of headlines, fonts, colors, keywords, and words. Does the site speak to you on a personal level. Never understimate the power of personal observation.

Free Articles

There are many free articles that aid in the training process. Many give great information, but they are limited in the amount of information they can give in the scope of a 400 to 800 word article. The more articles you read the more information you can garner. I have learned some great information from free articles.

Ebooks

There are many informative ebooks on marketing subjects. Some are excellent and some are nothing more than advertising in a book. The advantage that ebooks have over articles is that they are not limited to strict word constraints.

Video Training

One of the fastest growing forms of training is video training. And for good reason. Video training is the quickest training method. If you are in a hurry to monetize your site then this method is definitely for you. It is far easier to learn a task by seeing it performed than by reading how to perform the task.

There are many video training programs, but most good training video programs are almost cost prohibitive … but there are a few video programs that are excellent and cost-effective. A good cost-effective video training program is worth its weight in time and money savings.

Conclusion

Each method of training has its advantages and drawbacks, but good training is necessary for internet marketing success.

Writing Articles for Search Engine Optimization

Posted on Posted in seo, technology, website

One comes across a lot of articles these days on the different websites and many of them look so obvious that they were written primarily just for the search engines. Most of these articles are easy to be identified because they are stuffed with keywords and contain nothing really useful. I accept that writing for the search engine is definitely not bad at all, but writing only for the search engine sounds so funny in the first place. But probably many have done that kind of SEO work and ranked better in the past. However as technology is fast catching up, I am sure these things will change and one would not have to repeat keywords in an absurd fashion just to attract the search engines. All those SEO professionals / content writers or others who write and publish SEO articles have some basic business objectives. These are,

  • Providing information
  • Get a higher rank
  • Better linking with other sites

If the website does not provide some useful information then the purpose of the article itself is lost. One may be able to attract good number of people into the website and into the page, but if the visitors do not find the article useful or interesting, they may immediately click out of the page. Distribution of an article that is not well written will not be appreciated and linked to by other sites. Thus the published article must,

  • Be relevant
  • Be useful to the audience
  • Must be Informational
  • Simple and well written
  • Must retain the reader's interesting
  • Use variation of the key phrase instead of repeating
  • Avoid over repetition of keyword
  • Be targeted at the target audience
  • Help the reader with info / otherwise

Today writing articles and submission to different article directories on the web is also a very powerful SEO strategy that can greatly enhance a website's visibility on the net. …

2. Social Bookmark Your Key Pages

Social bookmarking is basically bookmarking a web page so that you can read it later. You can bookmark your pages on sites like Reddit, Digg and StumbleUpon. Website pages that are added on social bookmarking sites are regarded as a quality backlink by search engines. The more quality links you have coming into your website, the further up the rankings you will appear.

3. Internal Linking

Create an internal linking structure throughout your website to attract attention to these pages. Internal link building helps search engines, but it also helps your audience find your information in a more organized fashion.

4. Improve Your Existing Content

Search engines like Google keep their procedures and ranking techniques secret, because they want to deliver the best search-results for their users and stop spam pages from hindering those results. But there are some golden rules you can follow:

  • Place keywords in your headline
  • Make use of keywords in your subheadings
  • Include keywords in your first and last paragraph
  • Place relevant and supporting keywords throughout the body of the copy

5. Publish More Keyword-Rich Content

Content is what the search engines index. The more suitable content you have, the more value is placed on your site. Bear in mind that publishing a heap of 500 word blog posts that have no reason other than SEO isn’t going to help if they’re not targeted and filled with meaning. You need to find a voice for your business and stick to it with a tight focus.…

1. Do give some useful through website – These days people are more keen on finding substance than just being hired by merely generous banners and images. Rather too much use of flashy objects and colors distract audience from site as they hinder from reading the main content.
