Running a hotel or motel can be a profitable business, but there is virtually no end of maintenance, service and repairs that need to be addressed in order to keep your customers satisfied and profits rolling in. Some of the Read More …
I literally jumped for joy when I heard that Frontier FIOS would be coming to my area. For years my DSL connection has done nothing but hold me back, and the only saving grace about it that it wasn’t as bad as dial up, which isn’t that much of an accomplishment in this day and age. The people living in the city can get all of the high speed networks, but me and everyone else living in the suburbs had nothing but DSL and dial up at our disposal, until now. Now we have something that download a page in the blink of an eye.
When I played video games on my old Internet connection, people would get mad at me because I was lagging. They didn’t want to play against me, and I could only find other people with bad connections to play against me. Under the FIOS connection, I’m faster than everyone else, and now they accuse me of cheating. I guess no matter what you do, you can’t escape the criticism. At least now, I know that everyone else is just being a sore loser because they lost against someone with a better Internet connection than them.
The fast Internet speed from FIOS really comes in handy when I’m trying to buy items on auction sites. On my old connection, the other bidders would get to place their bids before I got a chance to do mine because their connections let them submit faster. They could also refresh the page and reload it faster. In order to stand a chance against them, I had to open multiple tabs of same page, and even that wasn’t enough, because all of those tabs would slow down my computer. Now I can send in my bids quickly using only one tab.
Our church has a really nice website, but it is hard to keep it updated. Some things never change, like the date and time of services. We do have articles on there too, but they don’t get posted that often. We needed to have more regular content so we could continue to have people look at our website. That is the only way we would be able to encourage people to come to our church if they are looking for one. I was online looking around one day when I came across a website updating service, and I thought that it was just perfect for our needs.
For one low price, we would be able to purchase a package where we would get content that is written specifically for us. It would be uploaded to our website every single week, and we would never have to worry about having fresh content again. The price for this was extremely affordable as well. We could have more than one post written if we wanted to pay more, but I honestly figured that just one update a week was enough for what we were trying to achieve.
I contacted the company to see about getting something set up, and it was very easy to arrange everything. I did not tell anyone at first, because I wanted to make sure that this was going to be a seamless process. I looked at the site for two weeks in a row, and I was pleasantly surprised with what they delivered. The content was perfect for our needs, and I was happy to share the news with everyone that we now had fresh and current content on our website, and it was going to be updated weekly. We have had people comment on our website now, and we are actually seeing more people come to check us out in person too.
It is all about where your site ranks with Google for the search terms your customer demographic uses. If you sell pink pickup trucks, you want your website to be in the top five results for anything your customers might search for. The thing is getting Google to recognize that your website is what the people are looking for. You want to outshine your competition and those trying to steal your web traffic. You can have the best pink pickup trucks in the world and still not be seen without using strong link building strategies that will up your page ranking.
If you follow the standard old and slow method of building your website ranking, it could take a long time to just get to the first page of results. As I have said, it is not about how well you do your business or the reality of the quality of products or services you provide. When it comes to getting to the top of the search results, it is all about SEO and using link building strategies that the search engines use in their algorithm for ranking websites that get returned to those searching for things. Another thing to consider is the constant evolution of these search engine algorithms. Unless you spend the time needed to keep ahead of it, your site will fall behind. Just keeping up with the new ways the search engines are using to weed out sites can be a full time job. This is why the work is best left to professionals.
We would have to hire an in-house team to do this kind of work, and we would have to have them constantly be trained by other experts to be able to keep fresh in the latest link building strategies needed to up our page rankings. It is best we leave it to professionals who only do this for a living. It is what has kept us in the top five results for search engines since we went online years ago.
When I went away to college, I had no idea that my life was going to change so much. I pledged a sorority and knew that nine of my sisters and I were going to be lifelong friends. We vowed to stay in touch, no matter what, so I was excited when we decided to start having annual visits with one another. They decided to visit me in Toronto for our third get together, and I wanted to make it a really special time for all of us. I did a search for limo tour, knowing that we wanted to stay together for the weekend rather than use different cars.
We all booked rooms at a hotel near the airport, so there was a shuttle that would take care of that transportation. I still wanted to show them my hometown though, because none of them had ever been here before. That is why I wanted to see about getting a limo. I figured we would take one day and just see the sites, do some shopping, and maybe gamble a bit, things that all of us enjoy a good bit. Having a limo take us from one place to another seemed the most logical choice.
I had never rented a limo before, so I was not sure of the process. I was able to do it easily enough though once I went to the website of Toronto Limo VIP. All of the information I needed was right there on their website. I was able to put in all of my information, look at the different limos in their fleet, and reserve that one that I wanted. When the weekend finally came, we made so many new memories. Many of them were because of the comfortable limo since we could focus on having fun instead of driving several cars ourselves.
I don’t know why this keeps happening to me, but I have broken another vibrator. I wish that they would make some heavy duty, like industrial strength vibrators that would not break. But anyway, I am not going to look for that right now. I am checking out this one vibrator and I think I am going to buy the magic wand attachment for it because it sure looks like it would be a lot of fun to use in the bedroom. I have been single for a couple of years, and so the only action I get is when I employ my vibrator.
Well, that is not entirely true. I have had a couple of hookups in that span of time, but they were mostly a bad decision and I kind of regret them. From now on, until I find some real boyfriend material at some point, I am going to have to go solo when it comes to pleasuring myself.
That is not such a bad thing, and I really do like using vibrators in general. But I need one that will really get my juices flowing, if you know what I mean. That is why I think that the magic wand attachment sounds intriguing, as it looks like it could really stimulate the area.
I have been meaning to try something new for awhile as well. After my last vibrator broke, when I bought a new one, I just got the same model. I did not think that it would just break again so quickly, but that is the situation that I have ended up in. I should call the people who make it and complain about the lack of durability in their products. Or at least, I should write them an angry letter. I might do that after I finish buying a new one to use.
My wife really likes candles. I have a few favorites of the scented candles she burns. I like the ones that smell like maple. They come in different scent names such as banana bread or pumpkin pie. Sometimes they have names with ginger in them referring to the spice. To me, they all smell like maple icing on them donuts I don’t eat. She likes those decorative candles for the holidays too, so I looked into getting her something from the nice wedding anniversary candles I saw at a website.
I got us one with two photos of us printed on it. It is really neat. We have a closeup of us on our wedding day, and a closeup of us in the same pose 25 years later. She was very touched to receive it as a gift. I also got her one of the wedding anniversary candles that she would light too. I knew she would just lock the other one away in the curio cabinet with her other keepsakes. The other one was a countdown anniversary calendar to the 50th wedding anniversary that you burn down as the years go by. It took a little while to get it do burn down in the center to the 25th year mark.
My wife deserves everything, but she is touched by things such as candles and little gifts. It is the little things and the little moments that impress her the most. I am not the most romantic fellow on the planet, but I do know my wife. Winning her a stuffed animal form one of those machines is something she does not forget. She remembers where and when and the name we chose for the little stuffed creatures. I was glad to find a place online that has such nicely crafted wedding anniversary candles that I could get for her.
Our small company relies on our website sales. In a meeting, we discussed our current costs for a server that the domain operates on. We remain committed to only using shared hosting for USA servers. Our IT guy showed us a graphic representation of the attacks on websites and servers in the United States. There is a way to see a live view of where the hits are coming from. The majority of attempts to hack computers in the United States was coming out of China. This got us thinking of vulnerabilities of using a shared server for our online business that was not based in our own home country.
The majority of our sales was from customers in the United States. Every sale is processing credit cards and other information such as names, addresses and other demographic information from our customers. We could not in good conscience think of outsourcing to servers that were not in US territory under control of our laws. I do not think that companies should take a lackadaisical approach to the hardware and software that their domains run on, nor should they do it for where those servers are located. Other countries hosting United States business sites might make sense if they followed all the same laws and rules that we do.
I think we are going overboard with our outsourcing of everything. You see how outsourcing has affected customer service. It is such a fiasco to have foreign customer service that it is made fun of in TV, movies, books and more. We do not want our company to be on the news because of any data breaches by not having secure servers no matter if we are on a shared system at this point or not. I think our integrity will help keep us winners in this business of gaining consumer confidence.
When I became pregnant with our first child, my husband and I both decided that I would become a stay at home mom. I did not want to have strangers raising our baby, and my husband felt more comfortable with me staying home too. I was not expecting to have so much free time though! Babies sleep a good bit, which is something I did not know. I decided to go online and see if I could make some money during my free time. That is how I found out about Alex Shelton, a man who has changed my life for the better.
My husband makes a great income, but having a baby can also be expensive, especially when thinking about the future. We also wanted to have more children, so I felt that it was never too early to start planning a nest egg for ourselves. Alex Shelton is an online guru who has been in the business for many years. He has different programs that offer to teach people who want to get into an online business the right tools to make the right decisions. I wasn’t sure what I was looking for, but I am so glad that I found this.
I was able to take a course that helped me with so much. I learned all about marketing my online business and how to make sure that I stay on top since the online world can be quite competitive. The materials that are offered to people who sign up are enormous. I also got my very own coach who was able to help me when I did hit a stumbling block. I didn’t see how to overcome it, but he was able to point me in the right direction within minutes. To have this kind of support in such a competitive market is nothing short of amazing, and it is making our lives so much better too!
I used to have a game console when I was growing up. I loved spending time with all the other neighborhood kids playing it. So, when I passed by some of today’s current consoles on a trip to a local store recently, I decided I wanted to one and see what today’s technology was like. I sure am glad that I did. The very first game that I chose is PES 2016 and I love it. So much better than what I had a kid.
None of my current friends have been into gaming. But I thought it would be fun to invite everyone over to try it out. I figured it would be fun for everyone to have some beer and BBQ as well. Everyone was up for it when I called to make the invites. I wondered if everyone showed up, and to my surprise, everyone did. I also figured that most everyone would stay only a couple of hours, but it turned out that they spent the entire Saturday with me.
I had a chance to get used to playing the game for a few weeks before I had the gaming party. So, it was up to me to bring all my friends up to speed. They all marveled at how nice the graphics are, and they seem so lifelike that the guys were really getting into it. There was a lot of yelling and cheering for one another anytime someone made a goal. It was a pretty good day for all of us. Several of the guys said they now want to go get this same game to play as well. And I think that I’m going to spend some time reading reviews to find out which other ones are fun to play. With this one being as fun as it is, I’m sure there are even more that are just as fun.
