When building a website, many people try to take the shortest approach to victory. They throw up some pages, put second-rate content on them and then hope to start making money right away. In reality, this approach seldom works and then they start to get frustrated with the process. Those who find the most success in building a website typically aim to create an authority site. Authority sites typically receive the lion’s share of traffic from the search engines and have more credibility in the eyes of visitors. As a webmaster, you should care about your site authority and how [...]

Buying expired (or more accurately soon to be expired) domains can be extremely beneficial to a new websites ranking, pagerank and number of inlinks. Buying a domain with 1000 inlinks saves you money and time trying to achieve the same result with a new website. Also its fairly common knowledge that the age of a domain is an important rankng factor with the search engines. Anyway why you buy an expired domain is beside the point, heres a nice simple tip to help you find expired and related domains.

As any professional athlete, businessman, investor or coach will attest, learning from your mistakes or failures is a critical component of ensuring future success. I have been online close to 6 years now and thought, a public display of the mistakes I have made as I endeavour to become a web entrepreneur will not only help me to grow, but such public humiliation may also help new webmasters avoid many of the mistakes that I have made in the past.

Reflecting on this list and publishing it, is highly embarrassing now that I view them from a different understanding.
