Many of the bigger companies can afford to have a company do SEO work for them and give them higher ranks in search engines and bigger page views, but I can’t afford that. I just opened my own business last year, and it took nearly everything I had to keep the business going. There’s only so much money for me to through around, which is why affordable small business SEO was the only option for me. It is commonly accepted that the quality you get is proportional to the amount you pay for something, but that wasn’t the case with the SEO I used.
The SEO service that I used was well known for working with small businesses to get the same results as bigger companies. Many business owners consider them to be champions for the underdogs, because they take something that has the odds stacked against it, and puts it on a higher level. A major holiday was coming up, so I needed as many customers as possible. It didn’t take long for their SEO work to give me more customers, and the traffic from that holiday weekend was the highest that I had ever seen for the website of my business.
I still use the SEO service, even though I’ve grown since I first started using them. They continue to give me good results, and whenever I have a new promotion or launch a new product, people flock to my website in droves to have access to it. For many months, I’ve been able to make the top 10 ranking on many search engines. Other smaller companies have come to me, asking for advice on how to get to my level, and I tell them that what they need is a good company to give them an SEO service.
Affording a good server is only part of the issue when you want or need a quality server online. A dedicated server for my little but growing website would be great, but there was no way I could afford the major expense. Shared servers can be hit or miss in quality. You need to be careful. However, in looking for the best VPS, I found something that was not only affordable but perfectly useful for me too.
A VPS is a Virtual Private Server. If you have a website online or do anything else on the Internet where other people need to access your files, programs or any other data, you need to make that data available to them quickly. You could buy a computer and hook it up to your own Internet service to act as a server, but Internet service providers thwart that by limiting upload bandwidth. Continue Reading
I’ve tried plenty of workout programs in my day, but none of them have come close to being as good as the Navy seal fitness program. In my quest to become fit, I’ve ordered nearly every DVD, tried every device, and gone on every diet known to man, and none of them have really worked. All of these different methods haven’t been cheap either. I have an uncle who is in the Navy, and one day he stopped by my home for a visit. My uncle is always in great shape, and I asked him how he does it.
My uncle told me that the Navy keeps him on a strict workout plan and diet that keeps him in fighting shape. I never really thought about it before, but people who are in the armed forces are all in great shape. The armed forces has a great way of taking people who look like ordinary citizens and molding them into the pinnacle of physical fitness. I asked my uncle if he could help me get fit like him by showing me some of the things that the Navy does to keep him in shape. My uncle was more than happy to help me.
Being in the Navy, my uncle has a special way of doing things. Instead of helping me in the same way that a personal trainer would, he behaved like a drill instructor. He yelled and pushed me to get through the workout. It was like I was a private in the military. By the time he was done with me, I had gone from a flabby tub of lard to a lean, mean, exercising machine. My uncle eventually had to leave and go back to the base, but he told me to keep up with my training.
I am a big boxing fan, but nothing kills my love of boxing more than having to pay high prices to watch the fights over my satellite connection. I don’t even watch the pay per view fights, I just wait for them to come on the movie channels. Even though this saves me a little money, the prices for the movie channels are still pretty high on satellite. The prices for Qwest compared to Direct TV were much lower than I expected them to be when I started looking around for a replacement to my satellite service.
I did some thinking, and decided that it was best for me to part ways with the satellite provider before the next big fight. I contacted Qwest and signed up with their service, but there was something that I didn’t expect. Because I was a new customer, I was given a credit of $50 that I could use for any purpose. I thought about using it to rent some movies, but then I thought of a better idea. Continue Reading
I owe a lot of companies money, and they make sure that I am aware of this fact on a regular basis. I have requested that they stop calling me so much, but they tell me that it is their job to try and reclaim the money that is owed to their company. Some of them act as if I borrowed it directly from them! They can get quite rude, and they have had my wife in tears. I wanted to get bankruptcy lawyers in san diego but I was not sure how to do it, or if I even had the right to do it.
When one of the credit card companies flat out lied to me and then started harassing me with multiple phone calls throughout the day and long into the night, I knew I had to do something to put a stop to it. Continue Reading
We all know that torrenting is one of the most fundamental methods to downloading content. The problem with torrenting is that it has long been haunted by the spector of Pirate Bay, Napster and other third party torrenting tools which have been used to download everything from books to movies to the latest albums. While this can be certainly illegal there is nothing wrong with utilizing torrenting by itself – it is the most likely method to download large sized files quickly. Even Blizzard, a gaming company famous for the likes of World of Warcraft, has resorted to this method when updating their games.
It wasn’t very long ago that we saw TPB being shut down once again in a meager effort by multi-national corporations placing pressure on the local government to bring them to heel. For some time now TPB has served as both the digital and the physical foundation for the progression of freedom on the World Wide Web. Continue Reading
I have been living in an apartment in Austell GA for the past couple of months and I was basically happy there. It was mostly convenient to where I was working, but that changed up a little and I decided that I needed to find a place on the other side of the county. Of course you can not live any place in the Atlanta area and not have trouble with traffic. The entire world must be driving through this city each morning and again every afternoon. Of course you have to hope it never snows too, because that is a real disaster. The city government never seems to have a plan for that and you can be sure that no one around here has any idea how you drive on anything that is not a dry piece of pavement. You get snow or ice on the ground and it turns into the apocalypse in this city.
In truth I am not too far away from where they are going to build the new stadium for the Atlanta Braves. Of course it seems a bit ridiculous seeing as how the stadium that they have now is perfectly fine and was only built about 18 or 20 years ago when they had the Olympics here in Atlanta. Of course that was probably a poor idea all things considered and it likely cost us five times as much as they claimed it would and the evidence does not suggest that anyone got a big benefit out of it. At any rate the place I am living now is a little rented house and I am paying less than I was with a much nicer place. The great thing is that this is a quiet little neighborhood and there are ways in and out if you are keen.
I am not desperate for one of those pay day loan type of deals, but I need to borrow something around a thousand dollars for a couple of months. I am actually thinking about one of those places that has online cash in advance. Of course this place wants you to fill out an application for a loan, but they do not tell you what the terms are, that I can tell at least. Obviously I do not know if I want to borrow money from this place unless they explain to me what the deal is. In fact I want to sit down and read the fine print. Continue Reading
Pet friendly places should be easier to find. So many people have dogs and cats now. Many families have more than one of each. I was just out of college and looking to move out of the apartment over the garage of my parent’s home in the suburbs. I was searching for Dallas apartments that would allow me to bring my big dog with me. I have a full-blooded Mastiff. She is almost 200 pounds. We are about the same weight actually. Many places will allow you to have a dog, but they have a weight limit of only about 20 pounds or so.
My dog is friendly and quiet. She does not bark, and she is very kind. She absolutely loves to be around kids. She likes to play, but she is big and scares people because of her size. That is, until they get to know her. We go for lots of walks every day. She is my buddy, and I could not leave her behind with my parents even though they want to keep her. I work from my computer at home for an online firm. Continue Reading
I have been in Singapore for a few days now, and I am going to be here for another two weeks. I am on a vacation with my husband, and I am really glad that he decided to take me to Singapore. It is a place that I have wanted to go for much of my life, and I really enjoy traveling in general. Hopefully, I can find a tcm singapore clinic in the near future, because I would very much like to take a visit to one, before I leave the country. It is something that has always interested me, and I would like to learn more about Traditional Chinese Medicine on a first hand basis.
I think that it would be a good experience for me to learn more about the culture here, and to take it all in. Not to mention, I am actually interested in the curing powers of this type of medicine. Continue Reading
I am going to try to sell my house in the near future, but before I can do that, I feel I really need to fix and clean the place up a lot. It could really use it too. I am going to do as much of it as I can on my own, but one thing I will do is to hire carpet cleaning in Gold Coast and have them come to my house to professionally clean all of my carpets.
The carpets are not that old, and so I do not want to have to pay the expense of having them replaced before I sell the house. But at the same time, they are not in a sterling condition anymore. Continue Reading
Found a little place at the beach, although it would be too much for me to manage by own. In my last place I had to check out the fine print on the electric company rates to make sure that I had enough money to pay the power bill every month. It is not so tough to figure that out in the long haul, as you can be sure that we need to do things so that we can use the power wisely. This is a three bedroom house with a huge deck out on the beach near Corpus Cristi. Continue Reading
I have decided that I am ready for it and I have really had it with living in apartments. Aside from the fact that you are paying rent and that money never comes back, I always seem to live down the hall from two maniacs. I have found a little house and in a few days I am going to be moving into my first house. It is not as big as the apartment I am living in, but it is fine for me. My Mom bought me a gift, she says it is the best electric frying pan that you can buy, a Presto. Of course I like to cook and this electric skillet reminds me of Sunday afternoons. We would come home from church and the whole family would get together. Continue Reading
I knew that I was going to have to make a choice for my electricity company, but I had no idea which company to go with. There were quite a few that are available in my area, and I had no idea how to tell which one was the best for my needs. I was talking to a friend of mine at work about this, and she told me to go to choosetexaspower.org for some help in making my decision. She explained that it is a website that has all of the different electricity companies on its site, and there is information about each company too.
I thought that would be helpful for sure, so I went to the site that night when I got home. It was my last week at my rental house so I knew that I had to make a choice quickly. Continue Reading
Working on a plan to get this old house fixed up, in the meanwhile I am going to let these two tradesmen live in it. The two of them are in their slack part of the year. Every winter work slows down for these guys and they have to figure out some way to make it through to Spring. I looked in to getting cable, from this site. http://www.cable-tv.com/comcast/north-carolina/raleigh/, but I got this plan to let them stay at this place and fix it up. I even got them a satellite package, or they are sharing the same one I have. I figured that they were big sports fan and normally they would not be able to watch the games. Continue Reading
When a favorite show of mine moved from regular TV to cable and satellite, I was devastated. I had been watching the show for many years for free, but now I would have to pay to watch the show. It annoyed me to no end, but an exclusive deal was signed to have the show moved to a certain channel. A lot of other people weren’t happy either, but the network claimed it would mean less censorship on the show. I didn’t want to get cable, so I researched the offerings for Direct TV for North Bergen.
I had relatives and friends who had cable and satellite, and from their experiences, I know that satellite is better than cable. Continue Reading
Moving to Temple suddenly due to work has been both rewarding and slightly bit traumatizing, I can admit. When our plant shut down most of us were given very little warning; two or three days beforehand. I’d like to think that upper management knew that the plant was being shut down but in reality, that is most likely not what happened. Surprisingly enough, nearly everyone that worked the department with me was given a new job in Temple assuming we were willing enough to take it! Heck yeah, I was! With reliant energy in temple serving as my electric company, I knew that I was in good hands. Continue Reading
I thought I just had some sort of regular arthritis but it turns out that I have been dealing with gout for some time and I am not all that thrilled about the revelation. At least, now I know what is going on with my body. It has already taken quite a toll on me, and that is something that I want to prevent from getting worse going forward. I am pretty upset with myself for letting it get this bad. I want know is pineapple juice good for gout? Because I drink a lot of pineapple juice, and I need to know if it is helping my problem, or if it is making it worse. Continue Reading
I have tried so many different ways to lose weight. I tried to just not eat as well as exercise more, but my schedule is too chaotic to make that happen on a regular basis. I have tried diet pills, supplements, and other things, and I was about to give up on losing those 20 pounds until I found some Slim Fast coupons on a site that I regularly visit for other coupon savings offers. I had never considered Slim Fast because I did not want to pay full price on something I wasn’t sure would even work for me.
With this coupon deal though, I decided to go ahead and try it. Continue Reading
For my business, I use a Windows VPS to share work with my colleagues. My colleagues don’t live in the same location as I do, with one of us living all the way on the other side of the planet. It’s important that we can get work done quickly and share our progress in an instant. Using the VPS, we can exchange files, and even edit files as a group, rather than simply passing the file from person to person and waiting for a response from them. Using this method, we save a lot of time that would usually get eaten by transmission and communication.
My colleagues and I were working on a big project for another company. The company was launching a new smartphone game and they wanted us to develop most of the code for it. Continue Reading
How many of us are still in the toddler stage when it comes to accomplishing things? A toddler, rather than walking around a chair in the middle of the room, will climb on it, fall off of it, climb on it again, cry when the chair falls over, climb on the chair again after an adult has picked it up and finally make it over the chair! There is an easy way to do things and a hard way. Which would you rather choose? Even the best Shakeology review s lead us down a path to what we think is the easy way out – nothing is ever simple, even if Shakeology is a great program itself we have to look beyond the results.
Judging by the fact that the profits from the $4.98 Staples Easy Button benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs by up to $1 million a year, I would say that we are looking for simple and easy.Lofty ideas, challenges, desires or something that you hope to accomplish can feel impossible to achieve. So many of us get stuck with step number 1. Continue Reading
Everyone seems to be going green these days, and a good way to get in on the trend is to start using power generated by wind. In some cities you can specifically choose to purchase wind power for extra money, but that’s not everywhere and over time, the cost builds up. A good way to solve this problem is to build your own wind turbine. For a one-time investment of less than $150 you could provide all the energy you and your family will ever need. You can even find Reliant energy plans that could incorporate your natural energy!
Wind power has been used as early as 5,500 years ago to propel sailboats and ship. Continue Reading
When I started looking at different Internet providers, I thought it was going to be hard to choose the one that I wanted to go with. It was really important to me because I was not planning on getting a television service subscription when I moved, so I needed to have a reliable and quick Internet service so it could handle all of the streaming that I would be doing since that is how I planned to watch my favorite TV shows. It ended up being an easy decision though once I found out about Frontier FiOS Internet.
This Internet service provider has so much going for them that it was really the only choice I could have made. Continue Reading
In fact my boss and I started to talk about this the other day. We were over at his place watching a ball game and some ad came on the television. At the end of it there was this thing asking you go on Facebook or instagram to do something. We got to talking about how in theory you should be able to very cheaply and efficiently market on Social media. Of course you need to gain a critical mass in the beginning and we wonder if you need to try to buy instagram followers just to get your numbers up to the level where they need to be. Obviously if you want this work you need to reach the people and you have to get people to follow you. Continue Reading
When I started dating this girl I did not really think she was any different fom the other girls I knew and she did not act differently. She did not dress like Paris Hilton or act like a snobby rich girl. At any rate it turns out that her Dad owns this huge agricultural enterprise, I guess you could call it a farm, but it is more of a factory for producing pork. She has one of those luxury apartments in Columbia SC. It has all sorts of amenities and I love the fact that there is a gym. Of course when she asked me if I wanted to move in with her I thought that meant that she wanted to have me move in and share the rent and the cable bill and the bill for the Internet. Continue Reading
My wife had planned to have a really nice birthday party for our twin daughters this year. The girls had been talking about it with their mom for many months. I usually do not pay attention to these types of plans, but I could certainly hear the three of them talking about excitedly while planning on many occasions. I simply knew very little about things like themes, kids party invitations and all the other things that take place with parties for young people. While I was happy for my girls, I decided to let them do all the talking and planning.
We got a call last summer about my wife’s mother breaking her hip. My wife rushed out to be with her, but she soon realized that because her mom lives alone, she would need to stay there awhile to help her mother out around the house. Continue Reading
When you’re buried beneath what can feel like a mountain of debt with your life crumbling around you, it is far too easy to feel as if you need to give up hope completely. I’ve been there myself – the constant phone calls and harassment from the credit companies and the third party collectors who are doing their dirty work for them and collecting the money. Nobody had told me about debt consolidation or how it could help me. If I had known about it years ago, I wouldn’t have spent so much of my time running away from that debt instead of facing it.
I freely admit that I do not have any notion of fiscal responsibility. Even the idea of trying to save money is kind of a foreign concept for me. Continue Reading
My cable company ended up having a fight with one of my favorite channels, and they lost the right to air that channel to its customers. Since a lot of my programming was on that channel, I decided to look at my options. I came across http://satellite-direct-tv.com/directv-ultimate-package.html and knew within minutes that I was going to switch over to Direct TV. Not only did they have the right to air the channel I wanted to watch, but there were so many other great things about them too.
I had never considered satellite service before because I had always heard the rumors that it would not work if there was even a hint of a storm or bad weather. When I started looking at the benefits of getting satellite television service, I saw that this information was just a myth. Continue Reading
Choosing what kind of television package has never felt so difficult and frustrating. I love Television. I love being entertained by HBO and Showtime, which is why I don’t settle just for Netflix in my home. And yet, I want to be able to have the content when I want it since I’m paying for it. Having to deal with both Comcast and Time Warner has been nothing but one giant headache after another. Is it really a surprise that I called Direct TV for help? Over and over again I would attempt to bring up my OnDemand, a service provided by both those companies, and you would not believe the amount of issues I’d have in simply trying to pull up a single show that I would want to watch. Sometimes it would load and fail half way through. Sometimes it wouldn’t load at all. Continue Reading
This morning Meg and I have been trying to figure out how we can afford to get into a house. We found a place in Crosby, TX and we are trying to talk the guy down to some place where we can work a deal. Of course we still need more money after we get done with the down payment. You got to find the best deal on electricity, which seems to be Reliant from what I can tell from the research. This page http://www.texasenergycompanies.net/reliant-energy-texas/c/crosby.html is where I am getting the numbers and I am not really sure if they are written in stone or not. Continue Reading
I am looking at the important facts on internet right now. For instance I am going to figure out which texas electricity companies in northlake serve this piece of property, what types of tv and internet services are available there and how affordable these things would be. I found a great piece of land which is pretty close to highway 38, but not too close. It is about five or six miles from the Texas Motor Speedway and that really is not a big deal to me except for the fact that it means you might have days when the best idea would be to stay at home or to stay well away from home. I am sure the traffic is pretty bad when they have the races and of course the people go to the races and they drink a whole lot of beer, then some of them get behind the wheel of a car and act like those NASCAR drivers on the way home.
The thing I do like is that this is a very short distance to Grapevine lake, so if I want to I can take my john boat to work with me and sneak in a bit of fishing on the way home or maybe even fish for a couple of hours before I go in to work in the morning if that is what I feel like doing. Of course I work in Grapevine or right out on the edge of the town and so that means that this place is more than just a bit convenient for me. The wife is not as sold on the idea, but if it makes sense then she will see that it does and if it does not make sense, then she will see that and not let me forget it.
I am about 40 pounds overweight. I am pretty active, so I know a lot of people are probably wondering why I am not skinny. Well, activity means pretty much zilch if you are eating the wrong things, like I was. I had coffee and donuts for breakfast. For lunch, I would eat fast food. Sometimes, I would have that for dinner too. A late night snack of several hundred calories was also a regular thing. I knew I had to change though, and that opportunity came when I found an Ideal Shape coupon code online.
I had been hearing good things about Ideal Shape from my a couple of my friends, and I could actually see changes in them. They did not appear as if they were suffering either. Continue Reading
It used to be that I would spend months looking for every little bit of information I could find about the big sale that happens on December 26 on an annual basis. I lived for saving some money, but it was a lot of work to keep up with. But now, things are much easy because I can keep up with online Black Friday deals 2015 by simply taking minutes to see all the big discounts that will be offered for the even more interesting sale day that happens right after Thanksgiving each year now.
I do not exactly remember when the big Black Friday sales began, but I know it was at some point in the last few years or so. Talk of it began to spread like wildfire, and by the second year, everyone I know was paying attention to find out what they could get on sale. It is so much more simple to be able to buy discounted things online, rather than needing to go wait in line at a variety of stores.
Just to give an example of what I used to do for the day-after-Christmas sale, I used to make a list of the things that I wanted to buy. Then I would have to note the times the sales started. Then I had to think of which things that I could not live without. Those were the stores that I would arrive at first. If I knew an item would be especially popular, I would have to show up about 3 hours before the store’s sale time started. Then, I had to rush inside the store, and hope that item was not all sold out by the time I could find where it was in the store. But now, I can simply buy all the sale things that I want online and it only takes seconds to do.
No matter how much older I get, I cannot imagine myself ever being prepared for the coming of the colder seasons that herald the coming of the holidays. For many Americans this is the beginning the shopping season – when the best deals become available! This is usually when I start updating my electronics and this year is not going to be any different; I’m already looking forward to the Cyber Monday tv deals for 2015. It’s great that these deals have moved from the typical Black Friday madness as I absolutely refuse to ever go back into a brick and mortar ever again on Black Friday. Continue Reading
Making the decision as to where to live depends on many things including health, move-ability and finances. We just recently went through this experience with my father-in-law. After my mother-in-law passed away two years ago, he was able to stay in his house and take care of things. He quickly deteriorated out of loneliness and age and it was soon apparent he wouldn’t be able to stay in his own home and we had begun considering senior home care in Nassau County. Unfortunately before anything was done about it he fell and broke his hip forcing the family to find better living conditions for him. After surgery he was moved to an assisted living center where he found companionship, activities, and decent meals three times a day. He did stay in his room for much of the time but came out for meals and a few activities.
This worked well for about five weeks and then he became restless and unhappy. Continue Reading
I am trying to find a good deal on a hotel in Cody, Wyoming, because I am going to take my family there for a visit, and it would be nice if the visit did not cost too much money. I have been trying to think of some ideas to save money during the trip, but I haven’t come up with any great ideas yet. I am hoping something will come to mind though. I am checking out Cody Wyoming hotels and information about rates per night. I wish I could find a coupon for staying at one of them.
I am working to put together a list of ways to save money on our trip, because I usually have a problem with saving money when I am on vacations. This is going to be a good one though, because the Cody area is pretty interesting, and it has a good bit of history associated with it. I really like the history aspect of it, but I know that my kids will not care as much about that, and they might even be a bit bored by it as well. Continue Reading
