Google AdSense: Breaking News

Posted By admin in E-Business, Google AdSense, IT, PTC, SOHO, The Internet, Work From Home

Expandable Advertisements (Mar. 2009):
– Expandable ad is a new type of ad that can appear on the pages.
– Expandable ads are rich media ads that can expand beyond the original size of the ad unit, following a user-initiated action. This creates more real estate for the ad, allowing for more interaction from interested users. For instance, expandable ads may stream a movie trailer, show video game clips, or display various views of an item for sale.
– Expandable ads will be served as third-party ads and will be created by Google-certified rich media vendors for the top display advertisers in our network. And like other Google ads, you’ll earn based on whether the expandable ads on your site are priced on a cost-per-click (CPC) or cost-per-impression (CPM) basis. Keep in mind that you’ll generate earnings from CPC expandable ads when a user visits the advertiser’s landing page, and not when a user simply clicks to expand the ad.

Network Effect

Posted By admin in E-Business, IT, The Internet

Network effect is a proper noun used in economy or business. The value of a product will depend on how many people use it. For example, if there is only one fax machine in the world, its value will be zero because there is no another fax machine can communicate with it. However, the value of fax machine will increase if more and more people start to use it. To apply in the e-business, network effect could infer the ability of the development of the Internet society. Network effect is just like rolling a snowball on the Internet. The people using the Internet have continued increase since 1990. The value of each Internet user depends on the total other Internet users. It means that other people will join an Internet community when critical mass of users are attracted by this community. In other words, a successful website requires techniques, marketing, and price strategy to attract customers so as to trigger network effect.

List of Ping Service Websites

Posted By admin in SEO, The Internet

Ping service is for you to tell the world automatically that your blog was updated. Here is the definition of Ping from Wikipedia:
In blogging, ping is an XML-RPC-based push mechanism by which a weblog notifies a server that its content has been updated. An XML-RPC signal is sent to one or more “ping servers,” which can then generate a list of blogs that have new material. Many blog authoring tools automatically ping one or more servers each time the blogger creates a new post or updates an old one.
This can bring more visitors to your blog without doing much job. If you’re using WordPress blog, all you have to do is to put the ping service website links into Update Services field(you can find this under Writing in Settings). Here is a list of Ping services I collected, you can copy it to your blog.
