It is a process that allows organisms to exchange information by several methods. Communication requires that all parties understand a common language that is exchanged.РІР‚Сњ
A couple months ago I wrote about how to find a great domain name. Since then, I've found several other tricks, related articles and sites... here they are:
1. Instant Domain Search - This is the site I've been using most. Start typing a domain name and as you type it shows you if it's available or not. No submit button, no waiting, just good quick results. Can't beat that. There is a similar site called Ajax Whois that's not quite as fast (it requires verification), but adds the functionality of seeing whois results.
It never ceases to amaze me to see the quality of expertise from the readers of this site. You all really blow me away! I'm pleased to present 18 business and life balance How-To's РІР‚?crowdsourced' from our reader community. These are extremely well written, in-depth articles that could stand alone as 'special reports' or even mini ebooks in some cases!

Companies large and small spend significant proportions of their revenue on branding efforts as well as those things that influence customer perception of brand like product development, support and customer service.
While there is debate about who "owns" a brand, the company or it's customers, partners and employees, it can be agreed that there is tremendous value and equity in a company's brand. Something of value is worth protecting especially when it contributes to the livelihood of all the employees of the company and their families.
Part of having a successful website is attracting visitors. Keeping those visitors on your site, however, is another topic altogether. Of course, once you have the visitor on your site you'll want to keep them around for a while rather than seeing them quickly leaving to go somewhere else.
In order to do a good job of retaining visitors, increasing pageviews and time on the site, it's important to think about what could cause visitors to leave. By knowing some of the major reasons that people are leaving your site, you can make adjustments to improve this situation.
Here is a look at 16 common reasons for exiting visitors. If you have other factors in mind that I've left off of this list, feel free to leave a comment.
Good domain names are out there, but they can be hard to find. Here are some tools to help you in your search.
1. Dislexicon - Takes common words and adds suffixes and prefixes. It even gives you the meaning. This site is great for finding short domain names that look like they could be real words.
RSS feeds are a popular data format used for serving users frequently updated content and they offer great opportunities to publishers who are looking for alternative systems to generate revenue from their original content.
With the growing popularity of RSS feed-based syndication, many Internet publishers became concerned that subscribers to their RSS feeds would not be be exposed anymore to the advertising on their web pages, as some readers could now read all of their content inside their RSS reader. In this light, some decided to publish only a short part of their articles in their RSS feeds so that those interested would click through to their site to read the rest of the content.
I did this out of concern that my news sources would consist of nothing but "A-listers" and I'd miss out on the insights of those that wrote fantastic posts, but hadn't yet found the spotlight.
It's time to do it again!
Here's how it works. You leave your RSS feed URL in the comments below (no other links please, just the RSS feed). I'll subscribe to the first 100 and will continue to do so for the next two weeks. After the two weeks are up, I'll keep subscribing to anyone that really added value to my daily reading.
Sound like a deal?
Р’В Here's who I'm still subscribed to, after last year's request:
As I said I'd do last week I've closed the latest Poll of the Week off because it was beginning to take over my sidebar. I found the results quite interesting. The question asked:
What Blog Platform Do You Use Most?
The results had a few surprises for me. While I was expecting a large showing for WordPress (around 37% of the 1000 respondents) I was intruiged by the large number of ProBlogger readers using the free hosted Blogger.com platform (22.2% - or 222 readers). This figure was almost triple the number of Movable Type Bloggers. Another surprise to me was the large numbers of Blog platforms that I'd never heard of before. By the end of the poll there were 49 options. Thirdly I was interested that 2% of those taking part use some sort of РІР‚?custom made' blog platform (sometimes even hand coded).
Investing in registered or expired domains can increase the visibility of your Website and help direct traffic that will convert to sales. However, with over 60 million domains currently registered, it can be daunting to try to find the right domain -- one that will drive quality traffic to your Website or parked domain.
How can you ensure you're making the right decision when you purchase registered and expired domains? Do your research and you'll feel confident in your purchase.
In this article, I'll explain the tools and techniques domain pros use to determine -- or at least reasonably guesstimate -- how much, and what type, of traffic a domain receives. Armed with this knowledge, you'll be able to predict approximately how much money a given domain will make, and thus gain a better understanding of the domain's true value. We'll discuss three methods for evaluating the traffic a domain receives:
