Drawing on a piece of roman potery of a couple hiding inside a cloak.Search Engines are dumb robots1. Internet Marketing Entrepreneurs are Smart Humans (or so they think... cheeky) It is therefore rather easy to outsmart the dumb robots. Today on the Snap! Website blog I will show you how you create a website for the purpose of gaining a higher rank using a very simple cloaking technique.

There are several things that determine your rank, but the main factor is how many links point to your website. To increase the number of links you can increase the number of posts you make on other websites.

  • 1. Yes. I know. They are already pretty smart, but these are generally not as smart as a human being. They do not know how to automatically adapt to new situation without having a few humans tend to them and increase their intelligence.

Old Canadian Phone Booth in Vancouver.I think that some people get upset that I offer them to connect with me on Skype and refuse to do so...

Very frankly, I now rather only connect with the people I'm likely to talk with rather than everyone who tries to connect with me on Skype. Many are there just and only to sell their services which I don't need so there is no point in connecting with them.

.lol TLDICANN added 14 new TLDs, such as the .ss for South Sudan and the .tel for telecom companies, in the last 28 years. TLDs started being in use in 1984.

This year, ICANN decided to offer companies the opportunity to define their own TLDs. 1,900 applications have been submitted and we expect ICANN to release information about those on June 13, just a few more days...

Moulting chick penguins.
Guys! Look at that ugly penguin hiding...

Google is constantly changing (improving...) and this time many got a hit because of their new Penguin update. In my case, the latest changes have been rather positive, but many people got hit the wrong way around and their ranking went down, possibly very much so (some talk about receiving a negative ranking and suing Google over it!)

The latest change can affect anyone, although if you've done nothing wrong, you should be just fine. This being said, the way this new release works can lead to your website losing its rank because someone else played a trick on you. Whether Google can detect and/or accept that you weren't responsible is a different question. At this point, it is still a bit early to say that it is all bad.

So? What did they do this time?

Yesterday I created a new Twitter account and I could not get my Profile Picture to load (they also call it the Twitter Avatar).

I tried I do not know how many times, changing the format of the image (JPG instead of PNG) and it still wouldn't work.

Today, I found this message explaining that somehow it's a major technical problem on their end.

I Can't Upload My Profile Picture or Avatar

Bug alert:

  • The avatar upload feature has been temporarily disabled. Users will not be able to upload new profile pictures at this time.

Toshiaki Kawada shaking hands with Zeus, 2008Today I wanted to touch one of the most important point about Email Marketing with you. You may actually be surprised... but this important point actually applies to writing a blog like I'm doing right here, right now in my Snap! Websites journal.

First and foremost, I noticed a trend in the last two years of people saying that when building your list of subscribers you shouldn't ask for the user's name. Apparently, some people noticed that they were getting more subscriptions to their marketing lists by just and only asking the users to enter their email address.

My personal (and I insist on that term: personal) feeling is that such marketers are missing the point. Either that, or they are building a list of subscribers that they only want to keep for a very short time (possibly a good thing for MLM, as those marketing an MLM product generally expect a very quick Yes I'll Do It answer.)

The very first tweet posted on Twitter was March 21, 2006 and within this short period of 6 years, well over 500 million accounts where created.

It changed the Social Media landscape allowing many fans to talk with their favorite stars and Internet Marketers to grow the number of people who hear about them and their services or products. Many large companies are also using the system to closely keep in touch with their customers, giving them a great marketing advantage.

Like with any other Social Media system, once you created your account and are actively using it, it just ...

Google +1Today I was looking for a way to add a Google +1 button that looked like other buttons. Suppose you have a website where you already added buttons: Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest. You created a very specific look for those 3 buttons to match your website. It looks really nice. Now you want to add a Google +1 button...

The image on the right shows you the default Google +1 look.
If that is not what you want on your site, you'll want to use the following trick.

Big stack of money!To my point of view, one of the most prominent thing on the Internet these days is:

I want to make money!

Although many people are happy with just their regular job and use the Internet to work faster, play games at home, and find delicious recipes, there is a large number of people who think of the Internet as a money making machine. Well... it indeed created quite a few millionaires and will continue in doing so.

But...

Châteay de Pierrefond, FranceI often receive spam in my mailbox and on my websites. It is expected that emails will include one link that's repeated several times so the readers are much more likely to click on it at least once1. If they don't click on the first one, they are likely to click on the second or the third. When they skip all of those links, maybe they'll click the one in the P.S. area? This technique makes it easy to funnel people to a specific location on your website.

Now this is completely different from good SEO.

  • 1. As a rule of thumb, you do not want to have more than one link per paragraph, and if you have really small paragraphs, probably one every other paragraph. If the link doesn't really fit in the paragraph or you decided to send text emails, you may also place the links between paragraphs.
