The disadvantages of Free Web Hosting

If there’s one thing we’re probably all agreed on, it’s that when it comes to buying and goods and services, value for money is the top priority. From web hosting to wardrobes, digital downloads to doors and windows, when we set out to make a purchase, most of us look beyond the mere price as its stated on a website or a shelf in a bricks-and-mortar store. Rather, we look at what we’re actually getting for that money. We question whether we’ll really be getting what we pay for, and whether or not that’s actually a good thing. We look at the materials involved, the functionality, the warranty, and countless other features besides before finally making our minds up about whether or not to go ahead and buy.

Yet whilst we have no problem doing that when it comes to most things, when it comes to getting the best web host for our new website, many of us still scour the net trying to find ourselves a freebie. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Wouldn’t life be so much easier for all of us if we get more of the things we want and need for free? Sure it would, but is it really worth it if said freebie doesn’t exactly deliver?

It’s a question worth asking, particularly of free website hosting, where the appeal of getting something for nothing can often distract from the fact that what we’re actually getting is something far from fit for purpose.

How to fix your damaged pendrives & memory cards?

command prompt


Storage devices are certainly the most functional hardware tools. Every time you modify files on a pen drive or memory card, you’re figuratively forcing it to its demise. A storage device has a limit of total actions done on it. A MicroSD card can have around one to tens of thousands of delete actions. So, every time you are deleting a file, you are playing your storage device’s substructure. Your device will get weak & less secure by the time. Throughout this, the insecure file transfers may place adware or virus junks in your storage that are not removed even after completely formatting the disk. Once entered, these junks corrupt stored files and ultimately the disk.

Formatting the disk is the option you will surely try in order to remove those insecure items. But this junk exploitation is not an easy thing to recover from. Formatting disk makes no real impact on virus infected drives. After formatting, unwanted files may disappear from sight but they won’t be completely removed. After a day or more of usage, you will see them popping back. They come from the deeply hidden sectors of your disk.

Not just the virus & adware but sometimes the device itself loses its structure after a certain amount of time. The structure-loss will result in an unusable disk. This mainly happens after the disk crosses a certain ( its warranty ) period.

Whatever be the reason, if your storage device is facing a trouble even after being formatted, or isn’t even able to format. You can either try buying fancy and appealing pen drives or just wipe & fix the older one to start afresh. For the latter you can use the method described below.

Make sure you have your pen drive or SD card or any other removable disk plugged in Windows PC during this process.

Affordable Smartphones – What to look for?


World sees India as an emergent smartphone market with fabulous corporate chances. This may be the reason why Asus, Huawei, Motorola, Lenovo and Xiaomi like companies are aggressively focusing Indian mobile market. On the other hand, Indian companies like Micromax & Karbonn are exponentially increasing their share in Indian mobile market by selling cheap devices and are now threatening the thrones of Samsung & Apple like global companies. Since its start, Micromax largely focused on smartphones of price range ₹ 5000- ₹ 10000 and saw swift growth in sales. Their success appealed other companies to think from a new angle and begin from scratch. 2014 was the year when the smartphone confrontation began. It was the time when Micromax, Karbonn like companies faced the race in low-price range smartphones after the launch of Motorola’s Moto E for just ₹ 6999.  Packed with numerous great specifications Moto E was a huge hit. Overwhelmed by the response, Motorola produced imported more pieces to the country. And now as they have already released next generations of Moto E at the same price, a lot can be expected. In the latter half of 2014, other smartphone makers like Lenovo, Huawei and Xiaomi started landing their models to the Indian market. Xiaomi’s Mi, Lenovo’s A series, Huawei’s Honor devices and not to forget Asus’s Zenfones are competing well to local brands in <10k range.

Be Smarter and Nicer by Reading Literature

smarter with literature

There has recently been speculation that reading has no discernible benefit to the human mind. This challenges the conventional thinking that reading makes us smarter. However, evidence shows that reading does have a positive effect on our brains. Not only does it make us smarter it can also make us nicer people.

Fiction books make us more emphatic

Several studies performed over the years showed that those of us who read fiction have much better-developed abilities. Understanding and empathy are two of the key traits discovered. The research also acknowledged that some people are naturally more empathetic than others. Fiction is a genre that consists of stories; these stories are related to people, their relationships and their mental states. That being said, fiction books could make us more emphatic. A separate study that monitored children attempted to find a link about the genre and their perceptions. It was found that those who read fiction had keener perception skills, particularly when judging other people’s intentions.

2015 header simone

Who doesn’t want to earn money? Who won’t especially if the money comes sitting next to your laptop or computer? Online Money making is a sweet addiction that gets hold of every e-user sooner or later. This money-making process is somewhat very challenging in the beginning but once you start to figure out the what-to and what-not-to’s, things get easier. For pro-marketers, it becomes a child’s play. Just type and engage with the valued stuffs and see the money flowing to your pockets. In this article, I’ll be guiding you on the basics of Internet marketing.

What is Internet marketing?

The word INTERNET MARKETING simply suggests that it is all about marketing stuffs on internet. The specific meaning of the term is no different from the former. However, some specialists think that e-commerce & some other online services, despite being done on internet, don’t come under internet marketing. In e-commerce you sell physical & virtual goods for money while some online services like web development & design, are hard-earned money for your time and work.

An average person can understand the term Internet marketing by the process of earning money by selling content & links to readers and clients. Following deeds are the most popular Internet marketing things:

  • Affiliate Marketing
    Affiliated Marketing includes consumer repulsion to external sites (mainly shopping sites like Amazon, Myntra, Flipkart, Themeforest, Creative Market etc) using several conversion techniques.
  • Email Marketing
    In email marketing, readers are converted into customers using mail lists.
  • Sponsored Posting
    Promoting services and products (but not selling them) using targeted blog posts.
  • Selling Backlinks
    Selling periodic external backlinks from authoritative sites.
  • Advertising / Pay per Click Programs
    Showing text and banner ads using your own or Adsense/infolinks/chitika like ad-serving agencies.
  • Visitors Referring
    Sending visitors to external sites using links from various parts of your site.
  • Forum Posting
    Getting paid for posting to popular forums for someone else.
  • Selling Facebook Likes
  • Social Network Marketing
  • Premium Support
  • e-seminars
    Internet Marketing is being tougher by time. Everyone, who has a blog, a webpage or even a Facebook page is into marketing online. They are making the internet an extremely competitive place day by day. In order to be a successful marketer, you must choose a market you’re best at. Any wrong selection may make you lose your investment and you will have to start from scratch every time.

How to choose a good market?

One of the hardest things you’ll ever do is the choice of a favorable market. You should ask many questions about the market you are going to join. For example:

  • Have I enough time for this?
  • Is it of low competition?
  • Has it many searches?
  • Do I know a lot about it, and, love it?
  • Will I be every bore about this market? How long will my passion continue?
  • Is this market ever going to lose in future?

After you know the answers and satisfied with your selection, you can start Internet marketing. You choice can be very broad or very specific. For example, if you love shopping clothes at Myntra.com and have some affiliated Myntra coupons, you can start a coupon sharing portal to share Myntra Promo codes. This will profit both you and your readers. You will earn handy affiliated money and your readers will save money on their purchases thanks to you.  But before you really start to do so, you must look on your website or blog on which you’re planning to build your money-empire. You need to prepare your site for better exposure and trust.

How to ready your blog/website for Internet marketing?

There are some rules you must follow to build a perfectly affiliated website.

  1. Get a domain name reflecting your market & marketing skills.
  2. Customize your site for better and conversion ready look.
  3. Do proper keyword research.
  4. Learn SEO. Do SEO.
  5. Win Google’s trust.
  6. Track Google algorithm changes.
  7. Write regularly.
  8. Allow track-backs & comments.
  9. Link to similar websites.
  10. Exchange links with authority websites.
  11. Track readers.
  12. Allow RSS & Email subscriptions.

Challenges

Internet marketing is only as hard as you make it to be. With unlimited possibilities, Internet marketing turns easier once you become familiar with it. If you are willing to be an Internet marketer, start as soon as possible. Because the Internet (especially Google) changes every night and the rules are not always the same. The faster you learn the best marketing techniques and tools now, the easier it will be for you once they change and start to become more complicated.
