AdSense : Mistakes You Need To Avoid :

Written by Radical Geeks Technologies on Sunday, 26 February 2012

Google Adsense : We are all aware of benefit we are getting from Internet marketing .And If you are trying to make money online, Google AdSense probably is the best option for you. The best thing about Google AdSense is that without getting a ton of traffic in order to make money; all you need to do is get people to click on your ads campaign.
People mainly understand about Google AdSense that there is a need of clicks but it is how they get the clicks that they are often confused with. There are a lot of mistakes that people make regarding Google AdSense and that is why I want to mention you what the mistakes are and also tell you how to fix that problem.

Don't Do :

Clicking On Your Own Ads

One thing you never want to do is click on your own AdSense ads. The reason why you don't want to do this is because Google will not pay you for your own clicks and if they catch you doing it a lot then they will cancel all your earnings and close your account. People all over the world think they can outsmart Google by redirecting their IP address but Google knows all the tricks that you can do. What you need to remember is that Google is the smartest thing in the entire world so if you think you found a trick to get past them, then just know that they have already thought, planned and implemented a remedy for that trick.

Ad Placement

Another mistake that many Google AdSense affiliates make is they don't place their ads in the right spot. What I recommend doing is placing your ads in the center of your website and above the fold (bottom of the page when it loads). The reason I recommend placing your AdSense ads in this spot is because this is where everybody looks when they come to a new page. Just by putting an AdSense ad right here you will increase your CTR and that is why I recommend doing it.

Too Many Ads

Do you know the maximum amount of AdSense ads you can have on your website? Just so that you know, you can only have 3 banner ads, 3 link ads and 2 search boxes per page. If you have any more than this, then Google will only show the maximum number of AdSense units for a while and then when they figure out that you are showing too many AdSense ads, then they will suspend your entire account. It is hard to put too many AdSense units on a single page but many people figure out a way to do it. Just know that the more ads you have on your page, the less professional it will look. My advice is to keep it simple and don't use any more than 3 AdSense ad units on an entire page.

Not Using Ad Links

Do you use ad links? The main ad link is the 780X15 and it works great. The reason people don't use this is because they don't like the way it looks but this is the highest clicked ad unit that Google offers. What you need to understand is that when this ad unit is placed under the navigation bar, it looks just like another navigation bar. This just means that people will assume it is part of your website and therefore they will click on it more.

Asking For Clicks

Never ask for clicks. It doesn't matter if you are asking people you know or people you don't know, this is a bad idea. The reason you should not ask for clicks is because Google will figure out if there is a pattern or some kind of connection to the person who is always clicking on your ads. Just do yourself a huge favor and don't waste your time with this practice because it won't last long before you get caught.

Do:

Making money with Google AdSense is not as hard as many people make it out to be. The only real trick is to get as much targeted traffic that you can to your website and the more traffic you can get, the more clicks you will get. With the average Click Thru Rate (CTR) being between 2%-3% you will need to get a good amount of traffic in order to make hundreds of dollars every month. All I am saying is that if you avoid the common Google AdSense mistakes, then you should have no problem making a good amount of money from AdSense every month.

Building successful Habits :

Written by Radical Geeks Technologies on Thursday, 29 December 2011

We all know what is the taste of being a successful and for being a successful individual one has to develop successful habits. Some how we feel like those successful people. Those are the people you want to study and emulate .We do what they do. Read what they read. Most successful people enjoy the opportunity to guide people along and to help them to become successful. It is their way how they return the things back. Taking initiative is the great habit but trouble is most people won't ask. They come up with excuses. They say to themselves that I am not important enough for this person to talk to me. You won't know unless you ask. So ask them.
The successful people comprehend that life is a learning experience and it doesn't stop at primary level. They always strive to reach the next level. Life will always pay you the results of your actions. Ask thyself what actions are you taking? What are you creating? You create what you think about. Before starting any new habit we have to know what we want. So how do we concrete our thoughts in order to permanently change our habits?

A successful Tips :

Identify what habit you want to develop or change. Being original is also a sign of a successful person. Try what can we change to make our habit productive and help us to reach our goals? Always consider the long term results.

Is it a self-esteem issue ?

This is where you can look at your habits. What is the current habit? What is your attitude about that? I do it but I don't like it. I do it because it makes me feel good when I am down in the dumps. What are your beliefs about it? I believe that if I keep gaining problems, it could harm me physically and possibly even cut short my life but it still makes me feel good when I do it. What are your expectations of doing it
These are questions you need to ask yourself. So what do you do after that? Ask yourself what it would look like if I change my habit and have the habit and results that I want. See other people staring at you and admiring you. How would you feel? Would you have more energy? Would you be able to do things that you weren't able to do before? See it clearly and imagine it 3 or 4 times a day.
Formulate your plan of action and work on it. Put your plan together. Ask..What do I need to do first? Set my goals. Then next I would put my plan together. Then I would start my program strongly. You get the idea. Put a good solid plan together. A plan should include an end reward. Say you can do it.
Maybe for every small success you gain you will reward yourself with and ice cream cone or something that you like that you have gain in whatever terms you want. At the end when you reach your goal maybe you will reward yourself for whatever you decide.
So there it is in a nutshell. We have the power to change any bad habit that we don't like. Will it be easy? Probably not, but it might not be as hard as we think either. The hard part is to get started. Remember that these habits have been a part of us for a long time so don't expect miracles at first. Be consistent and sincere to yourself.

Do facebook need more recommendation!

Written by Radical Geeks Technologies on Saturday, 24 December 2011

Today, every brand wants to venture more with the strategy and value they own. They want to share it with more people, sell it to more people, or even just engage more of their company in reading it and of course for more ROI. And, this is no short-term task. That said, no one person or company claims to know all of the answers in generating a proven path toward success and high-value brand equity. Everyone loves to hear what others are doing and innovate off of that. These all thoughts appear to be feasible and can be done easily through the most successful medium and their online presence on leading social media's like facebook,twitter,Linkedin.
Being a Business Analyst, more often I thought about the reason why facebook is so popular and viral today .Without any question facebook has done lots of hard work with proper execution of plans and strategy for catapulting it's image to be the biggest spot for social communication.The reason why I am writing is probably because I am also a Fan of facebook and want them to pay attention towards the performance marketing industry.

Here are a few recommendations I would like to mention :

1. Facebook needs to provide customer support for everyone for e.g Google still supports all size marketers. While Google doesn't necessarily love affiliate campaigns, it provides support for all size businesses. Google's learned that small businesses sometimes become big businesses and since it provides a suite of services for businesses, it wants to make everyone happy. Facebook needs to learn and follow some strategy and flexibility from Google's plan and provide everyone with support even if they are seen "only" as affiliates.
2. What matter is to improve quality what facebook receives and supply every day in terms of product and services. Facebook needs to integrate its sales team with its quality review team. If you are fortunate enough to have a contact within facebook, it often does little good. As it stands now, Facebook sales people have absolutely no idea why their clients are having issues getting products approved on facebook. The advice that the sales team gives clients sometimes has no basis in reality of how the quality review team acts.
3. Idea is what facebook can suppose to make an effort to deliver; simple Listen to clients. facebook has a serious issue thinking that it rules the world because it's the biggest name in the world of Internet market right now. If we've learned anything about the Internet, it's that companies' fortunes can change overnight. Remember MySpace? Facebook is trying so hard to have its own way of doing business that it's ignoring pretty much anyone else's opinions on how to run its revenue generation.
4. Facebook should create a consumer panel. In our overly world of social media, consumers like to feel like they are making the decisions. They want to help.Reach out to them and ask for advice, testing support, and help. If you have a consumer brand, you will be shocked to see how asking for help will lead to new business deals

Google PigeonRank Algorithm

Written by Radical Geeks Technologies on Wednesday, 21 December 2011

One of best and amazing searching technology of Google is Pigeon Rank, a system for ranking web pages developed by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Stanford University.
Its success primarily depends on the superior trainability of the domestic pigeon and its unique capacity to identify objects. The common gray pigeon can easily distinguish among items displaying only the minutest differences, an ability that enables it to select relevant web sites from among thousands of similar pages.
Absolutely Pigeon takes the decision, but how is this possible to your surprise Pigeons are surprisingly adept at making instant judgments when confronted with difficult choices to make the best judgment over the entire havoc. This makes them suitable for any job requiring accurate and authoritative decision-making under pressure. The pigeons are given a quick orientation on web site relevance and assigned to an appropriate data coop.
Though at this point many of them can think that whether these are not against the law of animal but Google has done well to safeguard those pigeons. They are provided with all the comfort they require.Now Google is able to process search queries at more speeds higher to traditional search engines. When any search is requested on Google search, it is routed to a data coop where a monitor provides result pages at record speeds.

How was PigeonRank developed?

The ease of training pigeons was documented early in the annals of science and fully explored by noted psychologist B.F. Skinner, who demonstrated that with only minor incentives, pigeons could be trained to execute complex . Brin and Page were the first to recognize that this adaptability could be harnessed through massively parallel pecking to solve complex problems, such as ordering large datasets or ordering pizza for large groups of engineers. Page and Brin experimented with numerous avian motivators before settling on a combination of linseed and flax (lin/ax) that not only offered superior performance, but could be gathered at no cost from nearby open space preserves.

Google get its pigeons from..? Some special breeding lab?

Google uses only low-cost, off-the-street pigeons for its clusters. Gathered from city parks and plazas by Google's pack of more than 50 Phds (Pigeon-harvesting dogs), the pigeons are given a quick orientation on web site relevance and assigned to an appropriate data coop.

Future of pigeon computing?

A Google search is an easy, honest and objective way to find high-quality websites with information relevant to your search and that way they provide a good integration with the help of making many pigeon clusters (PCs)? Google continues to explore new applications for Pigeon Rank and its affiliated technologies. One of the most promising and prominent projects in development involves harnessing millions of pigeons worldwide to work on complex scientific challenges and they will gives more filtered and optimized result to the users.

Importance of Online marketing and Media

Written by Radical Geeks Technologies on Tuesday, 20 December 2011

Who don't want his business to flow on absolute figures and true fact is this; You like it or not, you need to venture your marketing abilities to be online. You can't deny that it has become a part of many people's lives and many are foregoing other traditional media for the internet. Information sharing is the factor why more and more people interacted with internet and its medium for their requirements. The internet now a days probably one of the most efficient and cost effective in order to promote your company services and products.
Print media advertising is one of the most expensive advertising media available to businesses which includes newspapers, magazines, phone books and journals. The costs is rapidly increasing of print media production, print advertising fees and it charges the exorbitant price for it. TV and radio advertising can reach a wider audience but just like print advertising broadcast media advertising fees are expensive.
With the Internet and Online Marketing, promoting a business can be done in very least price. Apart from cost-efficiency, one advantage of online advertising is that there is many creative and efficient ways to advertise online or you can venture your own way to advertise online. The Internet is much more flexible tool than print or even broadcast media. Not only the static ads, but you can also formulate a wonderful and attractive way to create active ads with sounds, motions, etc. You can also attach links and create interactive advertising features. There are many creative ways to highlight your products online and they are often much more affordable than creating advertising for TV.
Today there is enormous amount of competition and no one want to be on back foot. The most important reason why your business needs the internet as a marketing tool is because it is here to stay. In the next few years, millions more will get connected to the internet, it will expect even bigger force will required to sustain and many more people will look and find what they need online. The internet has allowed people without restriction to communicate instantaneously to anybody around the world and it has changed the complete way of communication. It has even changed the way people shopped.
It will continually change the way people lead their lives in the coming years. The internet is continually breaking barriers everyday for making our work more easier. In near future, it will become an even more essential part of people's lives so it's only sensible for companies to utilize this modern communication tool to their advantage. Internet has brought every one together so easily and anyone can reach anybody from anywhere practically online for no cost. A small home-based company can reach a potential business partner, a client, a supplier who lives half-way around the world.
There are no technologies available like internet which has the same reach and approach as the internet. Whereas before it would cost an arm and a leg to communicate with someone from another continent, now it is has become affordable. Online marketing and internet has given the best asset to the world and we need to learn the how to best utilize this infinite resources called Internet Marketing.

GSteve Jobs : 20 Life Lesson

Written by Radical Geeks Technologies on Monday, 19 December 2011

My feelings about Steve Jobs have always been a little mixed. I long admired his entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen and was in sheer awe of his natural instincts for what appeals to consumers. On the other hand I bristled at what I saw as his — and by extension Apple's — occasionally capricious and even contradictory actions (App store products in or out, inability to get in front of product issues, antennaegate) and super-secretive nature.
Now, having finished the 600-plus page Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson, I think I finally understand Steve Jobs. Like most of us, his personality had many sides. He could be aloof, super-intense, odd, gross, passionate, creative, driven, unfair, conciliatory and deeply introspective. He lived a rich and unique life.
As I read the tome on my Kindle, I highlighted interesting, surprising and relevant passages. Now, as I look back at them I realize that many help illustrate some of the larger lessons we can all glean from Steve Jobs' remarkable life.

Don't Wait

When the young Steve Jobs wanted to build something and needed a piece of equipment, he went straight to the source. "He began by recalling that he had wanted to build a frequency counter when he was twelve, and he was able to look up Bill Hewlett, the founder of HP, in the phone book and call him to get parts."

Make Your Own Reality

Steve Jobs learned early that when you don't like how things are in your life or in your world, change them, either through action or sheer force of will.
"As Hoffman later lamented, "The reality distortion field can serve as a spur, but then reality itself hits." – Joanna Hoffman, part of Apple's early Macintosh team.
"I didn't want to be a father, so I wasn't," Jobs later said, with only a touch of remorse in his voice.

Control Everything You Can

Steve Jobs was, to a certain degree, a hippie. However, unlike most free spirits of the 1960s-to-1970s love-in era, Jobs was a detail-oriented control freak.
"He wants to control his environment, and he sees the product as an extension of himself."

Own Your Mistakes

Jobs could be harsh and even thoughtless. Perhaps nowhere was that more in evidence than with his first daughter. Still, as Jobs grew older and began to face mortality, he more readily admitted his mistakes. "I've done a lot of things I'm not proud of, such as getting my girlfriend pregnant when I was twenty-three and the way I handled that," Jobs said." Know Yourself
While not always aware of how those around him were reacting to his appearance or demeanor, Jobs had no illusions about his own formidable intellectual skills.
"Then a more disconcerting discovery began to dawn on him: He was smarter than his parents."

Make Your Own Reality

Steve Jobs learned early that when you don't like how things are in your life or in your world, change them, either through action or sheer force of will.
"As Hoffman later lamented, "The reality distortion field can serve as a spur, but then reality itself hits." – Joanna Hoffman, part of Apple's early Macintosh team.
"I didn't want to be a father, so I wasn't," Jobs later said, with only a touch of remorse in his voice.

Control Everything You Can

Steve Jobs was, to a certain degree, a hippie. However, unlike most free spirits of the 1960s-to-1970s love-in era, Jobs was a detail-oriented control freak.
"He wants to control his environment, and he sees the product as an extension of himself."

Leave the Door Open for the Fantastic

Jobs was a seeker, pursuing spiritual enlightenment and body purification throughout his life. He wasn't a particularly religious person, but did not dismiss the existence or something beyond our earth-bound realm. "I think different religions are different doors to the same house. Sometimes I think the house exists, and sometimes I don't. It's the great mystery." — Steve Jobs.
Don't Hold Back Apple's founder was famous for his outbursts and sometimes over-emotional responses. In product development, things were often amazing or sh_t. "He was an enlightened being who was cruel," she recalled. "That's a strange combination."– former girlfriend and mother of Jobs' first daughter, Chrisann Brennan.

Surround Yourself with Brilliance

Whether he was willing to admit it or not, Steve Jobs could not do everything. Yes, he could have a huge impact on every product and marketing campaign, but he also knew that there were others in the world with skills he did not possess. Jobs' early partnership with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak perfectly illustrated this fact. His early success with Wozniak provided the template for future collaborations.
"After a couple of months he was ready to test it. 'I typed a few keys on the keyboard and I was shocked! The letters were displayed on the screen.' It was Sunday, June 29, 1975, a milestone for the personal computer. "It was the first time in history," Wozniak later said, "anyone had typed a character on a keyboard and seen it show up on their own computer's screen right in front of them."

Build a Team of A Players

Far too often, companies and managers settle for average employees. Steve Jobs recognized talent and decided that any conflict that might arise from a company full of "A"-level players would be counterbalanced by awesome output. He may have been right. "For most things in life, the range between best and average is 30% or so. The best airplane flight, the best meal, they may be 30% better than your average one. What I saw with Woz was somebody who was fifty times better than the average engineer. He could have meetings in his head. The Mac team was an attempt to build a whole team like that, A players. People said they wouldn't get along, they'd hate working with each other. But I realized that A players like to work with A players, they just didn't like working with C players."– Steve Jobs "I've learned over the years that when you have really good people you don't have to baby them," Jobs later explained. "By expecting them to do great things, you can get them to do great things."

Be Yourself :

Steve Jobs was often so busy being himself that he had no idea how people saw him, especially in his early, dirty-hippie days. "At meetings we had to look at his dirty feet." Sometimes, to relieve stress, he would soak his feet in the toilet, a practice that was not as soothing for his colleagues."—Mike Markkula, Apple's first chairman. Be Persuasive
While it's true that early Steve Jobs was a somewhat smelly and unpleasant person to be around, this same Steve Jobs also trained himself to stare without blinking for long periods of time and found that he could persuade people to do the seemingly impossible. "If it could save a person's life, would you find a way to shave ten seconds off the boot time?" he asked. Kenyon allowed that he probably could. Jobs went to a whiteboard and showed that if there were five million people using the Mac, and it took ten seconds extra to turn it on every day, that added up to three hundred million or so hours per year that people would save, which was the equivalent of at least one hundred lifetimes saved per year."

Show Others the Way

Jobs wasn't truly a programmer or technologist, certainly not in the way that Microsoft founder Bill Gates is, yet he had an intuitive understanding for technology and design that ended up altering the world's expectations for computers and, more importantly, consumer electronics. "To be honest, we didn't know what it meant for a computer to be 'friendly' until Steve told us." — Terry Oyama, part of the early Macintosh design team.

Trust Your Instincts

I have, in my own career, navigated by gut on more than one occasion. Steve Jobs, though, had a deep and abiding belief in his own tastes and believed with utter certainty that if he liked something, the public would as well. He was almost invariably right. "Did Alexander Graham Bell do any market research before he invented the telephone?" — Steve Jobs Take Risks
Throughout his career, Steve Jobs took chances, first with the launch of Apple, then in walking away from it and then returning in 1997. In an era when most companies were figuring out ways to diversify, Apple — under Job's leadership — shed businesses and products, and focused on relatively few areas. He was also willing to steer the entire Apple ship (or at least some aspects of it) in a single direction if he thought it would generate future success. "One of Jobs' management philosophies was that it is crucial, every now and then, to roll the dice and 'bet the company' on some new idea or technology." "I had this crazy idea that we could sell just as many Macs by advertising the iPod. In addition, the iPod would position Apple as evoking innovation and youth. So I moved $75 million of advertising money to the iPod, even though the category didn't justify one hundredth of that. That meant that we completely dominated the market for music players. We outspent everybody by a factor of about a hundred." — Steve Jobs.

Follow Great with Great

In everything from products to movies (under Pixar), Steve Jobs sought to create great follow-ups. He wasn't so successful in the early part of his career (see Lisa), but his third acts to Pixar and Apple proved he had the sequel touch. "There's a classic thing in business, which is the second-product syndrome," Jobs later said. It comes from not understanding what made your first product so successful. "I lived through that at Apple. My feeling was, if we got through our second film, we'd make it."

Make Tough Decisions

Good managers and leaders are willing to do hard work and, often, make unpopular decisions. Jobs apparently had little concern about being liked and therefore was well-equipped to make tough choices. "The most visible decision he made was to kill, once and for all, the Newton, the personal digital assistant with the almost-good handwriting-recognition system."

Presentation Can Make a World of Difference

The Apple founder hated PowerPoint presentations, but perhaps somewhat uncharacteristically, believed elegant product presentation was critical. "Packaging can be theater, it can create a story." — Jony Ive, Apple designer. Find a Way to Balance Your Intensity It's unclear if Steve Jobs ever truly mellowed, but he did learn that a buffer between him and the rest of Apple could be useful. "In a company that was led by a CEO prone to tantrums and withering blasts, Cook commanded situations with a calm demeanor, a soothing Alabama accent, and silent stares."

Live for Today

Even as Steve Jobs struggled with cancer, he rarely slowed down. If anything, the disease helped him focus his efforts and pursue some of his grandest dreams. "Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life." — Steve Jobs "Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart." — Steve Jobs
Share Your Wisdom Steve Jobs was not a philanthropic soul. He had a passion for products and success, but it wasn't until he became quite ill that he started reaching out and offering his wisdom to others in the tech community. "I will continue to do that with people like Mark Zukerberg too. That's how I'm going to spend part of the time I have left. I can help the next generation remember the lineage of great companies here and how to continue the tradition. The Valley has been very supportive of me. I should do my best to repay." — Steve Jobs

How can we define value of personal success

Written by Radical Geeks Technologies on Thursday, 15 December 2011

Thought Provoking

Success: the attainment of wealth, favor, or eminence. This is the definition provided by the Merriam-Webster online dictionary. I find this to be an interesting definition, especially when we think about situations that we have found ourselves in to perhaps be wealthy and in a position of power, but ultimately unhappy with it all. Would we still consider ourselves successful? The question here lies with the notion of aligning success with happiness. Are you successful because you are happy, and are you happy because you are successful?
There is a question that is asked of many graduating students searching for the next step in their lives. If you could do one thing in your life, all the time, and money wasn't an issue, what would it be? Some people would say they would work on old cars, and with this answer, they should ultimately become a mechanic or something related. Some might say they would go shopping every day, so ultimately they should become a merchandise buyer for a store, or a mystery shopper. Some might say they would go out to eat all the time, so perhaps they could become a food critic. But, what about the people who would want to do all of those things, all simultaneously, and experience anything and everything they can? What if one of those people is me?
It's almost as if my interest and curiosity about so many different things is what is ultimately plaguing me in the end. When asked the question about what I would do if I didn't have to work and money wasn't an issue, the only thing I can think of is a plethora of different opportunities. I would travel, I would write a book, I would take cooking and pastry lessons, I would learn to knit and crochet, I would learn new languages, I would enroll back in school just to take those classes that I always wanted to but couldn't because they didn't fit into my major requirements and I would have to either pay extra for them or just be making more work for myself. I would renovate old furniture and houses and beautify them. I would plant beautiful gardens with flowers and vegetables alike. I would become a wine connoisseur, and would learn to ski like a pro.
So, what kind of career is right for me? This is the unanswerable question I face every day. I see people in different positions and immediately picture myself in the same situations. Many times, I think and nod to myself that yes, I could definitely do this, and enjoy it. Enjoy it forever? Enjoy it for a month? What if I didn't like it anymore? When life is all about a push for success, how do we even work toward finding success if we don't even know what it is that will make us successful? Finding myself in this dilemma, I created my own definition of success: finding true happiness, contentment, and optimism with every aspect involve with consistence hard working . Maybe the average person on the street wouldn't consider me to be successful, but then again, what am trying to measure up to?
