Perfection is the Enemy of Success

Is perfection holding you back from success?

Martha Stewart is a self-proclaimed perfectionist. If you have seen her television show or visited her website, you are probably inclined to agree with her. She has made a living off of creating the perfect do-it-yourself crafts, decorations, and party hosting ideas. Although Martha Stewart has found a way to take her perfectionist attitude and turn it into a multi-million dollar business, many other self-proclaimed perfectionists will find that their attitude will only hinder their success in the business world.If you are starting your own company online and building a website to market yourself, having an obsessive need for perfection will work in your favor. Wanting to make sure that every aspect of a project you are working on is free of flaws is a good thing. However, letting insignificant details stop everything dead in its tracks can prevent you from finding real success. Being a perfectionist can hinder your personal growth and prevent you from seeing the big picture.

Facebook is Testing a New In-App Search Function. Should Google be Worried?

Have you ever wished for a simple and efficient way to search for online content that you can easily share on your Facebook mobile app. As the situation currently stands, sharing a digital photo taken with a smartphone and adding a message and some emoji is pretty easy, but the same cannot be said about adding context from the World Wide Web.

Domain Investor vs Cybersquatter

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblr
When the 2012 election came around an interesting story came out about a young man named Peter Crowley. Following the 2008 election, Mr. Crowley purchased domain names of those he felt could make up the next Republican ticket. Among them were www.RomneyRyan.com It wasa combination of brilliance, foresight, and a bit of cash. Now it was time to get paid. After all, these politicians pay so much money for ads, travel, and wardrobes that surely they’d cough up at least several thousand dollars for the website domain of the ticket, right? It didn’t  go that way, but that’s the risk with any investment.Unfortunately, some felt that Mr. Crowley was a cyber squatter, which would have been unethical, trying to take advantage of someone’s brand for his own gain, as opposed to a domain investor, who takes risks by investing in unowned – and potentially worthless – domain names.The key is to know the difference so that you do not fall into the trap of being a squatter, a legal area that is now in the grey area, but an ethical issue that is easy to define.

Stop or Block Referrer Spam

Stop or Block Referrer Spam

Lately, many website owners and online space operators have been facing an onslaught of referrer spam. For the newly initiated, referrer spam is pseudo traffic from bots, or automatic scripts, that generate a fake or inauthentic referral link. If the referrer spam is “successful”, the pseudo traffic will make the spam domain appear in your website’s analytics, hopefully encouraging you to visit.

Referral Spam – A Big Problem

Many website operators and online space owners dislike having their site analytics contaminated with fake, false or corrupt data. Besides affecting the purity of site analytics and working to better understand the user experience, dealing with referral spam can take a lot of time. Referrer spam has the potential to cause lasting harm to your Google SERP rankings, potentially meaning a damaging loss of revenue.

Referrer Spam: What It Is, Why It’s Bad, and How to Stop It

Ah, spam. Once upon a time, this was merely the name for a faintly distasteful loaf of canned meat, but with the rise of the Internet, it became something else altogether. Spam, as it is officially known, is any type of inappropriate, irrelevant, fake, or otherwise obtrusive and unwelcome message sent via mass communication channels (with the Internet being far and away the most popular avenue). Of course, in the infancy of cyber culture, it wasn’t such a problem, if only because in the old days – that is, the brief period between an almost total lack of a civilian Internet and the world we live in today, wherein kids who aren’t even old enough to shave are making money on YouTube – there wasn’t much of a user base for spammers to infect. Gradually, however, the Internet’s popularity and user pool grew larger, and before long, email spam became the flagship example of this phenomenon. Now, with the new millennium well underway, email spam has mutated, and the result is referrer spam. Read on to learn what it is, why it’s bad for you, and how to defeat it.
