The Virtual Gateway to Love in the Real World!

If you are lonely, sad and looking for a soul mate, do not fret, as love is in fact just a few clicks away in the form of various online dating sites. If you are wondering what this is all about, well it is about finding love in cyberspace, because it really does exist there!

Online dating sites were essentially born out of the frustration that lonely hearts felt when trying to find a soul mate at places like singles bars or nightclubs. Day after day, they would frequent these places without much luck. Another reason for the emergence of online dating sites was the work life that many people followed which simply did not leave them much time and space to make any special effort to look for a soul mate in real time. Gradually, as online dating sites such as or Yahoo! Personals not only came on to the forefront but also showcased the success that individuals met in finding love and companionship for themselves, the overall online dating scenario simply exploded.

Today, there are a plethora of online dating sites out there, to help you find the perfect love and soul mate for you. Irrespective of what you are looking for – deep, emotional bonding or just a casual fling to keep the blues away from the painful break-up that you just had, there is something for everyone on these sites. The fact that the whole world is your playground makes the entire game, metaphorically speaking, that much more fun to play! I personally know of Russian and Polish girls hooking up with charming men from India, who give them the much needed emotional warmth and security that men in their respective countries often seem to lack.

Also remember, that finding love on online dating sites need not necessarily come at a significant cost that you have to bear. There are online dating sites such as that do not charge anything from their users to hook them up with each other, yet are not only surviving, but in fact are thriving! These sites have maximized the usage of brilliant online advertising programs such as Google Adsense to make ample revenues for themselves without having to charge their users even a single dime!

Having said all of the above, do not look at the world of online dating as an all-encompassing solution to all your relationship issues. Just as perfection does not exist in the real world, it doesn’t in the virtual world either. Tread each step carefully; do not get excited about the first prospect that you meet in cyberspace. Take your time to judge the other person well before taking any hasty decision which you might regret later.

Follow the above tips well, and nothing could come in the way of your heart meeting the perfect soul mate for itself, on any of the numerous online dating sites doing the rounds!
Overview of Indian Web Hosting Companies

The Indian Internet space has seen a virtual explosion. If we are to look at the Indian Internet market in terms of number of users, the figure has exploded from 5,000,000 in 2000 to 42,000,000 in June 2007, reflecting a growth rate of a staggering 740% even though the overall Internet penetration rate in the country is still a meager 3.7%. The opening up of the Indian telecommunications market has been one of the factors behind this resounding growth, along with the resonating success of the Indian outsourcing sector which has been almost entirely dependent upon the Internet for its functioning.

A direct resultant of the growth of the Internet in India has been augmentation witnessed in the number and kinds of web hosting companies. As the number of Internet users grew in India, more and more businesses realized the importance of having a web presence. Demand for ‘.in’ domains was at an all-time high with registrations touching the 150,000 mark within a year of its launch. All of these newer domains along with the websites made for them required a place to park themselves. That is where the web hosting companies smelt a significant opportunity for themselves and subsequently grew by leaps and bounds.

From among the major Indian web hosting companies, established player Net4India has the largest share – 12.5% as per data released by WebHosting.Info at The reason for this is primarily the first mover advantage phenomenon, i.e. it was one of the first players on this scene in the country. Quickly, the company managed to garner a reputable name for itself, thus bagging a significant number of blue chip clients in the process. Even today, a large number of Indian corporate, including some major global conglomerates such as the Tatas are clients of Net4India.

Other major players on the Indian web hosting scenario include Rediff, Indialinks, Manashosting and Nettigritty who come in at No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, and No. 5 on the Top 10 list of Indian web hosting companies, with a market share of 5.0%, 4.8%, 2.4% and 1.3% respectively. As would be apparent, al the Top 5 players together do not command a major share of the Indian web hosting market. This is essentially because the market is highly fragmented with a very large number of players. Also, many Indian businesses as well as individuals host their websites with foreign hosting companies, bypassing the Indian entities.

With the emergence of more and more reliable web hosting companies within the country, this trend is likely to be reversed though. Infrastructure within the country is also improving drastically, encouraging newer players to come onto the forefront. Infrastructure is key to this sector as web hosting companies require practically uninterrupted power supply to maintain their uplink/downlink connectivity.
Overview of Car Dashboard Covers

When you care so much for your car, giving it a daily wash, ensuring that it sparkles to a shine, and there isn’t a spot of dirt or a scratch anywhere on its body, why would you neglect the dashboard? Only because it is inside the vehicle, and not easily visible from outside? Thinking so would be quite a fallacy, as a spoilt and undone dashboard would in fact ruin and negate all the efforts you have put in towards ensuring that your car remains spick and span, as contrary to your thinking, the dashboard is relatively easily visible from outside. Moreover anyone sitting inside your car would definitely notice your dashboard, and if it happens to be the hot chic you are going out with on your first date with her, you surely want to create the best impression, don’t you?

Those living in sunny parts of the world are especially liable to keeping their dashboards protected from harmful UV rays. And the key to that lies in using appropriate and effective dashboard covers. Thankfully, today you have a whole host of car dashboard covers, customized to the car make as well as the specifications of the customer.

For instance, there are Molded Carpet Dashboard Covers, made of a polyester polycarpet material that makes them really tough and help them weather all exposure to the elements. Due to their strength, most manufacturers offer Molded Carpet Dashboard Covers with a lifetime warranty. Their name draws from the fact that they are molded using a specific thermal process which ensures that they snugly fit the shape of vehicle dashboards, as per their makes. You also have Poly Carpet Dashboard Covers which are again made of polycarpet material, which is specially designed to ensure complete protection from harmful UV rays. These dashboard covers also serve to prevent cracking and fading of the car dashboard. Not to miss out, manufacturers today also offer Velour Dashboard Covers which are supported by a soft cushion-like material that also serves the purpose of making the dashboard more appealing in its overall look and feel.

Bloodhound – The (Ultimate) Scent of a Dog!

Bloodhound Description
Also referred to as the St. Hubert hound, a Bloodhound is a large-sized dog breed from Belgium / France that is bred specifically for the purpose of tracking human beings. This is largely due to the extra strong sense of smell that the dog has. The dog is capable of catching smells which may be hours or even days old. Appearance wise, Bloodhounds tend to be either red (which is how they get the prefix, ‘Blood’ to their name) or liver and tan, or black and tan in color. They also tend to have an exceptionally large skeletal structure, with the majority of their weight concentrated in the bones. Their coat tends to be hard, with the predominance of fur, and practically no hair at all.

Bloodhound History/Origin
Today’s Bloodhound originated from the eight-century St. Hubert hound, which was named after the man who made the dog the way it is today, by giving it the requisite training – Francois Hubert. The first St. Hubert hounds were black in color, and developed their black and tan color only much later. The colonial era saw the Bloodhound gain acceptance far and wide, with the British taking the breed along to the lands that they conquered. The Bloodhound gained even more popularity once it was taken to America. Till date, the American Bloodhound is considered to be one of the finest when it comes to Bloodhounds from across the world.

Bloodhound – Height/Weight
From the withers, Bloodhounds tend to stand 58 to 69 centimeters (23 to 27 inches). On an average, they weigh anywhere between 33 to 50 kilograms (i.e. 80 to 110 pounds, though some may weigh even as much as 160 pounds!).

Bloodhound - Temperament
Bloodhounds tend to be gentle, warm, unflappable creatures, making them an excellent choice for home pets. Problems in houses with bloodhounds are generally seen only with small children whom these bulky dogs sometimes tend to simply knock-over, just by their sheer size. Also, bloodhounds tend to be a little resilient to obedience training which is simply due to their tracking instinct, but patience and perseverance tends to pay well for the trainer, as Bloodhounds tend to learn faster, once they are willing to actually learn.

Bloodhound Grooming – Exercise
Bloodhounds are not the easiest to train; the very basics of toilet training themselves take a significant amount of time with bloodhounds. Training them on other issues such as obedience and other tricks is that much more difficult. Yet, the key lies simply in being patient and persistent. With time, they get the hang of things, and pick up all the tricks we have up our training sleeves! An important facet of Bloodhound training is to always have them on leash, especially when you are teaching them various tricks, else they simply tend to pursue their instinct and start following scents and picking up trails.

Bloodhound Health Problems - Life Expectancy
Bloodhounds tend to be exposed to gastrointestinal problems, more than most other common dog breeds. Among the gastrointestinal problems that they tend to suffer from, Gastric Dilatation Volvulus (GDV, or "bloat") is the most common ailment that they tend to suffer from. Problems of the eyes, ears and skins also tend to be rather common in Bloodhounds. The average life expectancy of Bloodhounds tends to be around 7-8 years, making them one of the shortest-lived of dog breeds.

Split – The fun never splits here!

Croatia’s second-largest city, Split is not only the most popular tourist destination from amongst all the scenic places along the Adriatic Sea, but in fact one of the most admired leisure venues in the whole of Europe. Pristine beaches along with a multitude of historical venues make Split an idealistic tourist destination.

When it comes to sightseeing in Split, it can simply be considered incomplete without a visit to the Diocletian's Palace, which has been included in UNESCO’s coveted list of World Heritage Sites. The diversity of form is a prominent feature of the palace, not seen in other similar structures – while the Cybele and Venus temples are circular; the Temple of Jupiter is rectangular and the mausoleum itself is octagonal. Split also has exclusive museums like the Town Museum which beautifully recalls the history of Split. In addition, there are two archaeological museums in Split – one known simply as Archaeological Museum while the other is referred to as Museum of Croatian Archaeological Monuments. Tourists also extensively enjoy Split’s art galleries, including the Mestrovic Gallery as well as the Gallery of Fine Arts.

Split’s beaches are spotlessly clean, serene and pure. One of the most happening beaches here is the Bacvice Beach, right in front of the Bacvice restaurant-nightlife complex. It is clean to the extent that it was awarded the Blue Flag award for the cleanliness of its beach as well as its surroundings, including the facilities at the beach. A little away from the city, at the foot of Marjan hill, lies the resplendent Kasjuni Beach. Other prominent and popular beaches include the tranquil Bene beach as well as the striking Zlatni Rat beach on Brac Island.

Split offers an enormous amount of variety to foodies, that too at reasonably affordable prices. It is unlikely that you will find anything very exclusive and exquisite in Split’s restaurants, but the usual, everyday fare would be prepared and served in the most delectable manner. If you are looking for seafood, Nostromo might just be the place for you, especially since it is located right next to a fish market. The Restoran Boban offers the entire range of Croatian cuisine including Istrian truffles and Dalmatian grilled fish and meat. If pizzas excite your taste buds more than other cuisines, head straight to the Pizzeria Galija, considered to be the best pizzeria of Split. Other popular outlets include the vegetarian Makrovega, Buffet Fife whose specialty is pasticada, a meaty stew and Konoba Varos who’s USP is meat cooked "under a bell", that is, it is roasted for long under a low flame.

Having enjoyed your day sightseeing or at the beach, you would probably be looking to hit the deck and party now! Well, Split offers considerable variety of choice for that too! Most of the happening places are located within the Diocletian's Palace including the comfortable Ghetto Club, the ever-popular Cafes – Song & Shook, and Red Room.

Life in Split is a perennial, un-splitting party!
Dalmatia – Find Your Inner Self There!

Dalmatia is a region along the Adriatic Sea in Europe, which spans most of modern day Croatia as well as parts of Montenegro. It is a region characterized by scenic landscapes, rugged mountains, and pristine beaches with beautifully blue colored, crystal clear water all around them. Additionally, the region tends to remain fairly warm and sunny, receiving sunshine on an average of 315 days in a calendar year, which is one of the primary reasons for tourists being drawn to Dalmatia by the hordes. The local administration has in turn worked hard to ensure that the Dalmatian region’s tourism potential is utilized to the maxim, leaving no stone upturned in creating an unforgettable experience for every visitor!

Places to visit and enjoy in Dalmatia are plenty, including Split, Zadar, Dubrovnik, Makarska, Šibenik, Imotski, Sinj, Solin, Metković, Trogir, Omiš and Trilj. While the Diocletian's Palace in Split is an absolute must see, in Zadar you could pay a divine visit to the numerous churches dotting the city including St Donatus' Church, St. Anastasia's Cathedral, St. Krševan's Church, St. Mary's Church, and St. Francis' Church. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dubrovnik offers plenty of choice in terms of places to visit including the Sponza Palace, the St. Saviour’s Church, the Franciscan monastery as well as the renowned St. Blaise's church. Makarska has thousands of tourists flocking to the city each year to have the time of their lives at any of the trendy bars and cafés dotting the landscape along Makarska harbour. Šibenik has scenic parks including the Krka National Park and the Plitvice Lakes National Park as well as the Cathedral of St. James which finds itself on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. Imotski’s medieval fortress on the rocks along Blue Lake is truly captivating. Sinj gets tourists from around the world for the traditional Tilters Tournament that takes place every year on the first Sunday in August.

One can wash down these delicacies with the choicest wines such as merlot, cabarnet, and dingac.

All in all, it’s absolute bliss in Dalmatia!
Kusadasi – Absolute Heaven on Earth!

There are few places on Earth that could really be described as heavenly, and Kusadasi, on the Aegean coast of Turkey, surely deserves such an accolade! When looked at from the sea, the peninsular city resort resembles the shape of the head of a bird, which is what the literal meaning of the name of the city is, in Turkish – “kus” means bird and “ada” stands for island, so it is literally like a bird island! Geographically, Kusadasi is located 90 kilometers or 56 miles south of Izmir, which is the region’s largest metropolitan center. Another landmark is the provincial seat of Aydin which is 71 kilometers or 44 miles away, as one goes inland into Turkey.

An ancient city, considered to have been founded circa 3000 BC, the landscape of the resort is well and truly breathtaking and captivating! It is no wonder that foreigners have really taken to the resort like bees to honey! Not only do they visit the resort regularly, many of them have actually bought land there and settled down permanently. The consistently hot Mediterranean climate almost all through the year plays its part in drawing visitors by the hordes, especially from cold countries. In fact even though the actual population of the resort is only 50,000 during season the population swells to 10 times that figure to approximately half a million! This is essentially because all the tourists that come in to the city, in turn require an army of personnel to serve them, whether waiters at restaurants, drivers for all the various means of transport doing the rounds, construction workers and so on.

As far as entertainment goes, Kusadasi offers an absolute plethora of options. The public beaches in Kusadasi really add to the charm of the city with a veritable range and number of them to make a rather difficult choice from, whether it is Town Beach, Ladies Beach, or Bird Island Beach…the list just goes on! All of these beaches in turn have a huge variety of entertainment options to choose from; there is delectable Turkish and international cuisine on offer at the restaurants along these beaches. A lot of them double up as bars, and also have exotic Turkish dancers as part of their staple offers – another sure shot way to have you hooked to the city! Aqua parks dotting the city resort at various places further add to its charm and attraction.

If history is what you dig, a trip to Kaleiçi Camii, a 17th century mosque built for the Grand Vizier Öküz Kara Mehmed Pasha is definitely called for. There is also the Öküz Mehmet Pasha caravanserai near the city’s docks which was built in 1618, as a strong room for the goods that were brought in through the seas by sea men from all across the world. There is also the Kadıkalesi, a Venetian/Byzantine castle, situated along the Kuşadası-Davutlar road.

Suffice it to say that there is something for everyone at Kusadasi!
Icmeler, the ultimate beach resort!

Icmeler is a Turkish beach resort, off the country’s southeast coast. Lying at the confluence of the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, Icmeler seems to have on offer something for everyone without the frills and whistles that Marmaris, another Turkish resort in close proximity to Icmeler, have to offer. It is not as loud, and not as crowded as Marmaris, yet has its own charm in a rustic sort of a manner. Icmeler is in fact popularly referred to as a village resort, which has all the basic amenities that any reputable beach resort should have like sparkling beaches with shimmering sands, with rollicking hotels in the vicinity, without the hangover of a tourist spot that is bursting at its seams.

Icmeler’s location along a bay, with mountains in the backdrop, makes the overall setting that much more breathtaking. In fact, that is one of the reasons why once tourists get an inkling of this place, they get hooked to it and prefer coming back again and again, year after year! There are resorts galore, all along the beach, with all of them having a veritable range of water sports and boat trips on offer. The water sport games on offer include diving, parasailing, beach volleyball, scuba diving, and banana boating. As far as boat trips go, a truly memorable one is the Gulet Cruise boat pleasure trip from Icmeler ‘starting point’, straight into the Aegean Sea. For the more luxuriously inclined, there is also the Blue Cruise luxury trip commencing from Icmeler. Overall, it is boat trips like the aforementioned that visitors tend to add to their lifetime repository of all time favorite memories!

When it comes to food, there are restaurants galore in Icmeler. Local delicacies like the ever-popular kebabs can be had with a veritable range of wines, including raki, the traditional Turkish wine, made from aniseeds. Another local specialty dish available across Icmeler’s restaurants is the Guvec, a clay pot casserole stew of meat and vegetables unique to Turkey. The Devamli Hotel has a restaurant by the name Love Boat that serves lip smacking stews. If local cuisine is what you are after, the Turkish House on Turunc House serves authentic Turkish cuisine, served with traditional Turkish music playing alongside. On the other hand, if you are looking for international cuisine, head straight to the Majestic Restaurant which serves a delectable mix of Italian, Indian and Chinese food offerings. If you are feeling really majestic and imperial, that too on a Sunday afternoon, head straight to the Kingsland Chinese Restaurant that serves up an authentic British lunch.

On the shopping front, Icmeler does not have much on offer with the central shopping mall being the sole source for collecting souvenirs of a trip to this wonderful place. Tourists would in fact be better off making a special trip to nearby Marmaris for all their shopping requirements.

Overall, a trip to Icmeler is a matter of a lifetime’s memory, to be cherished forever!
Bursa – There’s something for everyone here!

If you are looking for a holiday spot for you and your family and would prefer a place that would have something for everyone in your family, look no further than Bursa in Turkey, simply because no other place on Earth could match up so perfectly to your requirement. You name and it has it – famed historical places, picturesque gardens and parks, mouth watering cuisine, alluring shopping bazaars, world class hotels, action packed sporting facilities, rocking nightclubs, and exotic Turkish baths known as Hamams. With so much on offer, could you possibly ask for more? It would be interesting to note that the place is also commonly known as “Green Bursa” due to the extensive foliage all around it; there are gardens and parks galore. It is also the principal fruit growing region of Turkey which is another reason for the city to be associated with all things green!

From a purely historical perspective, Bursa is one of the most richly endowed. In fact no visit to Bursa is complete without a visit to the Yesil Cami, also known as the Green Mosque thanks to the dark green tiles covering the walls of the inner vestibule of the mosque, as well as the blue-green mosaic of tiles on the walls and ceilings of the eyvans of the mosque. There is also the Ulu Camii or the Great Mosque which is definitely worth much more than just a dekko, especially because of the 192 wall inscriptions, hand-written by renowned calligraphers, on the interiors of the mosque. You would also not like to miss the Ottoman Museum which offers a wonderfully descriptive perspective of the Ottoman way of life.

Industries form an integral part of the economy of Bursa; the Turkish operations of most MNCs in the country are located here. As far as your own shopping goes, Bursa will surely not let you down as it has a veritable range of markets where you can shop. There is the famed Koza Han bazaar, specializing in silk manufacturers, located next to the Ulu Camii. There is also the covered bazaar, Bedesten which you should add to your must visit list whenever you are in Bursa, however immune you maybe to shopping! It has been said that any visitor to this bazaar will find it completely impossible to leave empty handed!

You can never run out of entertainment options while in Bursa. The famed Hamams (Turkish Baths) are an experience really not to be missed. The best part of Bursa to go for this would be Çekirge. There is also a ski resort at Uludağ, extremely popular amongst the local Turkish populace as well as foreigners from various parts of the world. To entertain your taste buds, you simply must try the Iskender kebap, a Turkish delicacy made from slices of grilled lamb dressed in tomato sauce and browned butter. Candied chestnuts are also a local delicacy here.

Life in Bursa is indeed one long, never-ending party!
Altinkum – Rejuvenate Your Mind, Body & Soul Here!

If a quiet and peaceful holiday is what you yearn for, look no further than Altinkum, the blissful Turkish paradise along the south Aegean Coast. Unlike some of its more well-known counterparts such as Kusadasi and Bodrum, Altinkum tends to be much less boisterous, and one can afford to have the perfect getaway here, without the excess hullaballoo seen in other places like the earlier mentioned. The primary draw of this resort town is its three long sandy beaches. In fact, the place Altinkum gets its name from these beaches since Altinkum in Turkish means ‘golden sands’. The beaches at Altinkum stretch a long way, right from the little harbor at one end to the rocky cliff at the other end.

Most of Altinkum’s activities also tend to center around these beaches; the British as a community are particularly drawn to the prospect of spending entire days lazing on the golden sands along the pristine waters, while nights are spent at many of the bars and restaurants dotting the landscape along Altinkum’s beaches. Water sports such as windsurfing, jet-skiing, pedaloes, a banana boat ride or perhaps even a scuba diving lesson at the beaches are all major attractions at the beaches. In addition, there are a plethora of excursions, expedition, and boat trips to other resorts in the vicinity as well as adjacent towns and other places of historic interest. In fact, while at Altinkum, those with a penchant for history would enjoy visiting the Temple of Apollo at Didyama as well as the enormous Roman ruins at Ephesus. The spas and calcium deposits at Pamukkale are also a big draw.

For the nightly birds, Altinkum has a variety of entertainment options; Dolphin Square is where a lot of the nightlife of Altinkum tends to center around. At the same time, there are a significant number of bars which dominate the façade along the beaches of Altinkum. The drinks at most of these places tend to be inexpensive, further making them a huge draw among local and international tourists alike. Activities at the bars, discotheques and night clubs include belly-dancing to bingo, singing karaoke, playing pool as well as plain old disco dancing! The coveted crown of Altinkum’s most happening entertainment spot goes to Medusa, an open-air night club which gets really jammed on certain days. The Dolphin Bar is also immensely popular.

Foodies will just fall in love with Altinkum – over and over again! There are a plethora of options available in Altinkum when it comes to food. Although, Turkish and British fare tends to dominate, it is not that difficult to find Chinese, Indian as well as cuisine from various other parts of the world. Since Britishers dominate in terms of nationalities of visiting tourists here, they are pampered considerably with the pound sterling being accepted as a mode of payment at many of Altinkum’s restaurants.

With so much on offer, no doubt there is something for everyone at Altinkum!

Time-Tested Adwords Tips that Truly Work – and How!

If everyone in your fraternity is promoting their website through adwords, while you’re not, perhaps it’s high time you did! The Adwords program helps businesses grow and expand manifold. Large numbers of customers can be drawn and retained at very low costs. The following adwords tips will help you immensely as you chart out your own Internet marketing program.

Tip 1: Choose the right keywords
Often, marketers make the mistake of using too broad and general keywords in the adwords copy. The question is – do you want large numbers of customers who would visit your website and not buy anything, or would you prefer select, focused customers who would actually purchase? Assuming your preferred choice to be the latter, use refined and narrow keywords.

Tip 2: Be descriptive in your ad text
Think of your ad text as the door through which your customers could potentially walk in. Therefore, to ensure their entry in, use ad text that vividly describes the features or benefits of what you have on offer. Let your adwords text be enticing enough for them to not only read the ad, but also click on it.

Tip 3: Take Steps to Target Your Ads
Irrelevant customers viewing your ads – and clicking through to your website, would only increase costs without bringing along any benefits. So, take steps to ensure that only the right profile of customers get to see your ad in the first place. For example, if your product is going to sell only in Brazil, there’s no point having the ad displayed on Chinese websites!

Tip 4: Have the Right Landing Page
Many adwords users have been seen to make the mistake of getting customers land on the home page of the concerned website from where they are expected to navigate to the page of their interest. Avoid this mistake, especially if you are selling a wide variety of products and services and your ad copy refers to one of them. Take customers directly to the page that you are talking about in the ad copy.

As you have seen, follow the time-tested adwords tips above, and see your adwords program work, beyond your imagination!
Adwords Tips that will get you the CTR you always dreamt of!

Millions take up adwords-based promotional programs for their products and services. Yet only a few really achieve the desired click-through rate. Reason? They fail to adhere to basic, time-tested adwords principles. So, if you want your adwords program to work for you, follow the adwords tips provided below.

Tip 1: Be liberal in using the keyword, FREE
Consumers globally have been seen to love anything offered to them free of cost. And when this offer is made to them in the adwords copy, they are invariably found to click their way in! So liberally use the word, FREE, in your adwords copy, and watch your click-through rates simply take off!

Tip 2: Specify the benefits your customers will get
Vague benefits in adwords copies, for instance “BrainVista makes you Smart”, tend to keep customers away. On the other hand, highlighting specific advantages such as “BrainVista improves your IQ level by 24%” always brings them in! So portray specific benefits to your potential customers.

Tip 3: The power of the “How To” phrase
Many of the visitors to your website are looking for Do-it-Yourself solutions. And if you are able to help them in getting those solutions (and also manage to sell your product in the process!), they will continue to drop by. Taking a cue from the previous tip, be specific in your ‘How to’s’; for instance, instead of saying, ‘How to Get Rich Quick’, you could say, ‘How to Make $10,000 every month Working from Home’.

Tip 4: Use Action Phrases
Get visitors to practically drive in to your website, with action phrases such as ‘Start Now’, ‘Call 24/7’, ‘Order Today’ etc. This way you will elicit immediate and effective responses from them. Likely purchases would also be made quicker, thus improving your cash flows and ROI.

So follow the adwords tips above and see yourself writing out a whole new chapter in successful Internet marketing!

Tip 1: Ask Questions
Entice your adwords viewers with questions that elicit responses – in the form of clicks on your ad!

Tip 2: The Three Dot Paradigm…
Intriguing as it may seem, simply adding three dots at the end of your adwords copy adds a whole new dimension to your ad, making it a lot more effective! The prime reason is the continuity aspect that gets wielded in. Viewers expect something coming their way, and so just go ahead and click…

Tip 3: Use the word ‘Secret’ often
The power of the ‘Secret’ word is in fact no secret at all! An adword copy in the form of “Secret Beauty Tips You Never Knew…” is sure to get viewers “secretly” clicking away! The powerful three dot paradigm also being weaved in, makes it that much more powerful.
