Earn money by selling a domain name

Ever heard people saying “Hey I am in a domain business” and thought what he actually do ?

Selling domain names is what a person in domain business do. Selling of domain requires a bit of research and marketing techniques. It is very profitable for webmasters. Usually a blogger or webmaster will first work on his domain to get good number of organic traffic, and once its done he would let his domain go in some other hand in exchange of handsome money. A domain may be tagged for few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars for selling, it ultimately depends on the time you invested in decorating it.

This article aims teaching you earn big money through domain selling. The very first thing you should do is find a good keyword. Now question arises what is a ‘good keyword’ ? In domain selling a good keyword would be a keyword which is searched a lot by the people but ain’t used by any webmaster. Finding a good keyword, as told earlier, needs a bit of research. You can use tools such Google keyword tool to achieve the same, there are many other tools too, in case you didn’t know.

These keyword tools work in simple way, first you have to enter a keyword which you think should be quite popular. Next the tool will show you number of global searches, local searches and the competition for the keyword. You will reach closer to your aim once you find a keyword with high number of global searches but a very low competition.

Once you have got a perfect keyword, you can go for registering a domain name which has this magical keyword in it. Once you have purchased domain having the keyword, your next step is to purchase a good hosting. Setup the domain and hosting and next you have to do is investment, not of money but of time and traffic driving content. You have to setup a website on this domain and have to post content which will drive good amount of search engine traffic, the higher the traffic, the higher the price tag for domain. Simply buying a domain name and not setting up website won’t make you rich.

You can increase your profit margin by purchasing a good domain+hosting pack. Generally these types of packages will be cheaper than purchasing domain and hosting pack separately. Make sure your domain contains the keyword and is not used by any one else. If you find it difficult to purchase a domain with exact keyword then you can manipulate the domain name. How ? Simple make use of “-”, “i”, “e”, “the” etc. For example you found keyword “Blogging tips” with good amount monthly searches but a very low competition then your first priority should be to buy a domain which contains only this keyword, but sometimes conditions are not in our favour so in that case, you can modify the keyword like ebloggingtips, ibloggingtips, blogging-tips etc, by doing so you will get the domain name. But if you don’t find yourself comfortable with modifying keyword, then do another research and find a keyword with good amount of monthly searches and a domain with that keyword which is available.

Once you have registered the domain name and setup webhosting on it, start working on creating website on domain name. You should publish articles which have your keyword in it and should optimize them. You would reach close to success once you apply SEO techniques, optimization, reputation building etc to your article and keyword. These practices will improve your listing on search page, you will jump to first or second page once you have done all the optimization correctly. Once you start getting organic traffic, your next step would be to monetize your website. Apply for AdSense or affiliation and sell the products on your website, this will generate good revenue for you. You will earn money every time someone clicks on your AdSense ads and if it ain’t invalid, don’t click yourself or ask anyone to do so else you will face BAN. Also everytime you make an affilate sell, you will be rewarded with good amount of money. You will enjoy being affiliate even more if you look for an affilate program related to your keyword, in this way you will make even larger amount of sells.

Along with optimizing website to get good number of traffic, you have to also make your online presence and have to increase your reputaion in online world. This can be achieved through GOOD link building practices, they will make you closer to success as long as the link building practices are fair. You can get good amount of backlinks by registering on forum and adding your website in signature, blog commenting, web directories and through social bookarmaring site. There are rticle directories too where you can submit your article and can get even more backlinks. These links should be natural else you will be panalized by search engines. You also get targetted traffic when you submit your website’s articles in relevant directories. More traffic means more money while selling your domain. Soon your Alexa rank will also be approved and if you are getting dofollow backlinks from reputated website then your website will be entitled to a PageRank. You can sell your domain for good amount even if you don’y have high organic traffic but good Alexa and PageRank. Once you are ranked and reputated with backlinks, try to find how much worth your website is, if it turns out be low, no need of worry since when traffic will increase the price tag for your domain will also improve.

Once you start feeling that all the factors affecting price of a domain name are in your favour, you can then put your domain name in domain auction and all you have to have is patience. After some time you will start getting offers for your domain name, if you find a reasonable offer then you can sell the domain off to that person. After selling and all the transaction is done, you have to transfer your domain name to buyer through your webhosting control panel.

If you are happy with the amount of money you received, you can continue your work in domain business. You can research for another keyword and do what you had done with the previous domain, once all is finished you will again earn handsome money by selling a domain name.

Developing and Publishing Nokia Applications becomes easier with new Nokia Qt SDK v1.0

The Nokia Qt SDK version 1.0 was today released which had earlier remained under beta version since April. The new stable version of the Nokia Qt SDK comes with a final Windows environment which is compatible for both the Symbian as well as Maemo and can be used to create some useful applications for those platforms. The final version that was released today can be used on any Windows or Linux based computer but for making use of it in a Apple Mac computer there is a separate version which still lies under the beta testing. There have been many changes that are incorporated in the final version and it aims at simplifying the process of developing and publishing applications for millions of Nokia devices.

The Nokia Qt SDK version 1.0 has many new features built into it so as to make cross-platform development of Nokia applications much more efficient. Some of these features that are now available can be mentioned as under:-

It can now be installed by simply connecting a device to any install package available which would automatically configure the environment for development.

There are now many intuitive tools available within it including a debugger to develop applications rapidly.

A very light weight yet quite effective simulator is available to try out the projected app virtually.

There are Qt APIs which allows to deal with the programs more qualitatively without going after complicated programs.

You can now create applications for Symbian, Maemo and even the MeeGo devices by simply following only a few line of codes which can be even one line at minimum to create robust applications for Nokia devices.

There is a smart installer for installing applications which is signed by the OVI store thereby making it easier for the developers to publish their applications.

So with all these good features which are only a few among the list of all that are available, it is expected to help the developers to create new and feature-rich applications for Symbian, Maemo or MeeGo powered Nokia devices. It will also contribute in extending the scope of developing applications thereby increasing the number of active developers. Therefore, the release of Nokia Qt SDK version 1.0 can certainly be seen as a positive event and we can expect to see some really cool applications to release in the days ahead.

Birth of the World Wide Web – A Breif History

Sir Tim Berners-Lee is credited with inventing the World Wide Web; he wrote the first web browser, aptly named WorldWideWeb, and the first web server (software used to transmit webpages from a server to a user’s computer). However, the idea of an inter-connected system of information, or Hypertext, existed long before Tim Berners-Lee created the Web.

Hypertext is simply the idea of a system in which information is inter-connected; a user can instantly find material on a subject while learning about a related topic. In the web, this is accomplished with Hyperlinks: a word or phrase in a document is “linked” to another document containing more information about that subject. The concept of Hypertext dates back to the dawn of the computing era in the early twentieth century. Vannevar Bush, as early as 1945, described a electromechanical device called a “Memex,” which allowed the user to instantly view and cross-reference the entire contents of libraries. His concept used microfilm and levers, and never came to fruition, but by the 1980s computing and the internet were sufficiantly developed such that Tim Berners-Lee was able to create a complete Hypertext system.

The Web in its Infancy While at CERN, TimBL experemented with the idea of Hypertext and linked documents in the form of a program called Enquire, which he used to keep track of the many people and projects there. Though the software proved useful for him, it was never adopted by more than a few users, and eventually the program was lost altogether. Yet Enquire proved Tim with a testing ground for Hypertext: he learned which methods worked and which didn’t, both technically and in regard to user interaction. Eventually, when CERN asked him to develop a documentation system so scientists could share their research with one another, Tim siezed the chance to develop a multi-purpose hyperlinked system. He called the program WorldWideWeb.

WorldWideWeb was unique in that anyone could publish, view, and edit documents, from any system, anywhere on the Internet. Previously, it was difficult for two computers to talk to each other over the Internet, because documents were kept in different formats, and computers all spoke differnet languages. The Web provided a single language and a simple, easy to use interface; all that was necessary would be to generate enough interest so people would post their documents to the Web, and for programmers to write applications for different types of computers to use the Web. In order to achieve this goal, Tim gave his software out for free, setting a standard which many Web software companies follow to this day.

The Web goes World-Wide With the help of Robert Cailliau, the WorldWideWeb program, and other software developed at CERN for the web, became mature enough to convince other developers to start working on their own web software. While the Internet hadn’t completely taken hold in Europe, companies and universities in the United States were leveraging the new technology to communicate cross-country. It was here that Tim found the most acceptance for his invention; this is partially the reason why the W3C was founded at MIT.

In America, the NCSA developed the Mosaic web browser, which later became Netscape, and a student at the University of California developed the ViolaWWW browser; by building Web browsers for various platforms, the number of users on the Web began to grow expenentially. At the same time, more and more universities and researchers were putting their documents on the web; while other hypertext technologies were built, the Web was so accessable to anyone, for free, that it eventually grew to dominate the world of cyberspace. As the number of users and webpages grew, the amount of development from companies like Microsoft increased, ensuring the success of this new technology.

Best Practices Group for Automated Onboarding Now on LinkedIn

The investment banking industry has been pressed to improve business practices while reducing overall operating costs. In response to these constraints, an automated practice of onboarding and certifying electronic trading connections is growing in popularity. This automated process is able to:

• Reduce customer abandonment • Curb revenue losses • Lower fixed operational costs • Permit more concurrent onboarding, as customers are less dependent on interaction with an onboarding specialist.

Why isn’t everyone adopting this time- and money-saving technique? In order to gain insight into approaches for automating onboarding in the electronic trading industry, Lasalletech has launched an exclusive LinkedIn group, Automated Certification & Testing. This interactive community is for those interested in process automation. Here, participants can exchange ideas about best practices and industry trends. Part of the group is also dedicated to the launching of a virtual roundtable series. The roundtables will be held regularly, with industry experts weighing in on various onboarding-related topics. The first roundtable will be focused on automated testing for trading platforms and will be held in March.

Prior to creating the group there was not a forum dedicated to discussing topics around improving value and reducing operating costs through automating processes such as testing and certification. Most conversations took place at conferences and meetings with clients. This group provides the industry a way to quickly share ideas on automation from around the globe.

The new group will feature informative discussions and materials about automated onboarding and certification, as well as detailed information about upcoming events. Members are encouraged to participate in interactive conversations. The group also serves as a great networking and professional development tool for members to find users who share the same interest in the industry. Group members can share best practices and ideas with electronic trading industry professionals, creating a community of members who are highly interested in the development and implementation of automated onboarding and certification; providing an excellent forum in which participants can continue their productive and engaging discussions at any place, at any time.

To keep the conversation focused and free of spam the group will remain exclusive. If you would like to join the group, please contact automation@lasalletech.com or visit the group here.

Apple, who is well known to have amazed all the gadget crazy folks with its unique design and features that comes with each and every products that they offer has once again proved its might and dominance by launching yet another masterpiece of beauty i.e. the Apple iPod Nano Multi-Touch. This very sleek and lighter version of the iPod Nano carries some of the most awesome features which can can let you swing with the tunes of music simply with the touch of a fingertip. It has gone much smaller and lighter than its predecessors, yet retaining all the beauty and rich functionality that it is widely known for.

An Evangelist’s Concerns for Today’s Apple Keynote

Today, in roughly 3 hours (1:00pm EST) Apple will be hosting its big iPad unveiling in Cupertino. Due to numerous supply chain leaks as well as Apple’s own “accidental leak,” much is known about what will be announced. A new iPad Air and iPad mini will most likely be the highlight of the event with a slightly thinner design, a more advanced processor (being deemed the A8X chip), and long-awaited Touch ID amongst other run-of-the-mill marginal camera and display improvements. Alongside the new iPads we should expect to see a Retina iMac (personally most exciting), the launch of iOS 8.1 (with ApplePay), and OS X Yosemite. For the previously listed, I am confident they will make an appearance at today’s event.

There are a few other possibilities discussed on various rumor sites that may also get some airtime. These range from the more likely, such as more information on the previously teased “Photos” app that will be replacing both iPhoto and Aperture, to other longshots, such as a 12-inch “pro” version of the iPad or new 12-inch MacBooks.

Whatever does get announced, as an Apple evangelist (most people refer to me as a “fanboy,” but I much rather prefer the other term for reasons which won’t be listed here) I do have concerns for Apple. Apple has had a rough September/October with the iOS 8.0.1 botched update bricking 40,000 iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices, the overblown #bendgate scandal, the live-stream of the iPhone 6 announcement that was unwatchable, the late discovery of a critical flaw in HealthKit removing a big feature of the iOS 8 update right before its launch, and users being upset over the U2 album being automatically pushed to their Apple ID accounts. Despite this, Apple has had a wildly successful launch of the next generation iPhones and received a positive welcome by the general public to the teased Apple Watch. Today’s announcement can further Apple’s strength and push the month’s tribulations to the back burner.

My concerns for today’s keynote are as follows:

Will an evolutionary, already-expected update to iPad be enough to reignite otherwise slowing sales? When the iPad was first introduced in 2010, iPhone displays were 3.5” and MacBooks were heavy, less-portable devices. Today the environment is not only different externally with a plethora of cheaper, arguably more functional tablets available from competitors, but Apple’s own product lineup consists of a smartphone display as large as 5.5” and Retina MacBook Pros with intense processing power packed in an extremely lightweight design. Apple was never afraid to cannibalize themselves, but they have almost squeezed out the need of the original “in-between your Mac and iPhone” intention.

Is this truly the best product pipeline at Apple in 25 years? Eddy Cue, Vice President of Internet Software and Services for Apple,

of this year just that, “later this year, we’ve got the best product pipeline that I’ve seen in my 25 years at Apple.” Granted the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is a huge advancement for iPhone and the Apple Watch is definitively the best smartwatch out there (remember I said I’m an evangelist?), but a marginally updated iPad, and no revolutionary new Apple TV or iPod or Mac? I doubt we can verify Cue’s claim if this keynote is only what we expect it to be.

Speaking of Apple TV/iPod/Mac, when will Apple update some of these products that have some serious dust on them? iPods have become almost forgotten (probably rightfully so with the mass adoption of smartphones). The Mac Mini hasn’t been updated in almost 2 years, the MacBook Pro in over 2 years, the Apple TV in almost 3 years, and the Thunderbolt Display in over 3 years! Is this what the

is referring to from the media invitations? I am excited and desperately awaiting a new Apple TV personally and I know many other consumers feel the same way towards the Mac Mini and the Thunderbolt Display.

The last Apple keynote was thrilling and the definitive point in Tim Cook’s career where he officially took over Apple in the post-Jobs world. I hope Apple will live up to Cue’s claim, address some of my concerns, and truly continue to show us amazing products today. I know I will be gripping to the live blog(s) and hoping for a “One more thing” slide!
