The Main Focus of Your Membership Site

The Main Focus of Your Membership Site

Whatever the theme of your membership website is, it should always be your main focus. Every piece of written content, audio content or video content should be about the main theme of your membership website. Little side trips into very closely related fields is alright but even very closely related subjects should never detract from the main focus of your site. When you chose the theme for your membership website, you chose it because it was something that you knew a lot about and/or were (and hopefully still are) passionate about. I saw a sign in a convenience store not long ago that said something like….we strive to always be kind, considerate and helpful. However, it is hard to remember that the main objective is to drain the swamp when you are up to your ears (cleaned up) in alligators. That is true for owners of membership websites. It really is hard to stay focused on your objectives when you have so many things to distract you from doing what you need to do to keep your website focused on the main theme. No matter how many distractions you have, you must still keep new, fresh, relevant and timely content on your website ...

Facebook and Friendfinder: Popular Social Networking Websites

Individuals, of all different ages, enjoy meeting and communicating with other internet users.  Despite the fact that individuals of all ages use the internet to socialize, there are certain groups of individuals that do more than others. Those groups of individuals include students, both high school students and college students. For that reason, it is only fitting that there should be a social networking website that has a focus on these particular individuals. That networking website is known as Facebook. Facebook may not be as well known as other popular social networking websites, such as Yahoo! 360 or MySpace, but it is still popular.  That popularity is mostly among high school students and college students, mostly because Facebook focuses on these individuals in particular.  With Facebook, you are required to register for a specific network.

The News Of The World Scandal And Your Website

The News Of The World Is Closing Down The News of The World is going to be closed down this coming weekend- News International announced today that this coming Sunday will be the very last News Of The World Sunday newspaper to be produced in the UK. I remember as a child trying to sneak a peek at the titillating stories in the paper and perhaps get a peek of something that I shouldn't have been looking at.I never really liked their style of journalism but they certainly had a strong following of people who would read the paper- even my father sometimes bought The News of the World So, why is The News of The World closing down? They are closing down purely and simply because of the reputation that they have developed through the phone hacking scandal.The story basically is that they are being accused of tolerating a culture that encouraged journalists to hack in to people mobile phones and listen to their voice mail. Now, I have no idea if this is true or untrue, however the bottom line is that the scandal had enough validity to cause ...
