A free domain name?

Register.com sent me and unsolicited email about free domain registeration that they are giving away till 3/25/08. I thought it looked like an interesting deal so I headed over to the site to read the find print. It is actually free for 1 year from the date of registration (you will need to buy your own hosting plan separate from the domain if you wish to use it), the catch is that they want your credit card information on the account so that when the free year is up they can charge you for a second year and so on. They charge $35.00 for 1 year domain registration!! What a rip off! I actually do not recommend register.com's hosting plans to anyone who wishes to have control over their site/ SEO. I...

Payperpost, Google, page rank, paid links and the debate.

Did you know that many bloggers who get paid to blog are suffering from dramatic page rank drops? Do you know why? It is because of Google's rules about "passing page rank" through paid links. Payperpost is a great way for bloggers to get paid for writing but questions have been raised about whether or not they are asking you to break google's "passing page rank" rules. Some payperpost writers claim that using "rel=nofollow" in the html for sponsored links is against the payperpost terms of service. Not using it will surely impact your page rank and may even get your sites removed from google so what decision will you make? Which one is more ethical? Are you looking to make money or to provide helpful content to web users,...

Server/ Hosting Outages

If you are a e commerce site owner you know that this is the worst time possible to have server/ hosting issues with your site. These issues not only loose you potential customers but they are very stressful because you can do nothing to remedy the issue. I am amazed at how many outages I have read and heard about this month. I have a number of coworkers who were caught up in an extended outage that took their sites and emails offline for several days back at the beginning of November. "Navisite, the US webhosting firm, is scrambling to fix an extended outage that is believed to have rendered tens of thousands of websites inoperable for more than three days. The company hopes to completely resolve the problem by Tuesday...

Reviews on website hosting companies…

My website (Custom Gifts By Talina) went live in November 2005. Over the course of the last few months I have experienced many site building mistakes and frustrations. I am taking search engine optimization classes and chatting with several other small business owners on various groups (AZ Craft Biz Connection & QFLEA) to learn more about website building and marketing. I originally purchased service for 1 year with what I now know as a very bad hosting company (register.com). I learned I was not able to control my site construction as much as I needed and was not helped when I went to them to remedy this. Their "website now" service was not good for SEO and they were very unhelpful and basically refused to let me build my own...
