I recently received an promotional e-mail from one of my favorite SEO software vendors slashing their yearly licensing fee to -70% off. What a bargain I thought “they have never discounted their annual license agreement like this before where’s my credit card?” Then it hit me, nobody gives away their product for nearly nothing, red flag, something’s going on. Putting my credit card back in my wallet, I decided to do a little research.
I ran across several articles from SEO blogs pumping mass article submission schemes. The authors claim that by submitting quality written articles carefully key-worded to top PR Article Submission websites and lesser PR Article websites you can generate hundreds of backlinks and traffic pointing to your main article on your website.

I’ll admit I like web auctions I think it’s the excitement of buying something I don’t have to have a team of developers labor on for hours and the dream of owning another quick money site that makes buying a website on auction a pretty good deal. Web auctions allow me to search for an existing ready to go businesses that with a little creativity and a small investment I can revive and put my website and online marketing expertise to work. Unfortunately there are several shady players and scams you will run across in website auctions that make it difficult to decide if you are buying a potential business or getting ripped off.
Building a new website doesn't take a large budget or specialization in web design as it use to thanks to Content management systems. Basic Content Management Systems or CMS were designed to help non technical users quickly build and edit websites without extensive knowledge of HTML or other programming. They have become extremely popular due to the fact that most CMS such as Joomla, Drupal, WordPress, Plone, DotNetNuke, are open source software meaning they do not require a software license, the software is open to the public for development, and usually free of cost. CMS is browser based and allows you to work on your local PC or host server when you make changes to your website. A CMS can allow users to simplify editing, add content and images, and help you to manage your online business without having to be a webmaster.
