Kingdom of Nye Web Log: "Unions are Good for Who???


Many of you who read my last journal entry about unions know how passionately I feel about unions being a driving force in our society. I came across some more information that feeds into what I was saying about one of the groups who oppose the presence of unions in our society: big corporations.

'

AP: Wal-Mart, capitalist retailer for the masses, now has its own Communist Party branch.

Earlier this month, Communist Party and Communist Youth League branches and a trade union were set up at a Wal-Mart outlet in the northeastern industrial city of Shenyang, a staffer in the store's communications department said Thursday, confirming Chinese media reports.

[…] A bastion of private business, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has fought efforts to form unions elsewhere in its worldwide operations. But in recent weeks it said it agreed to work with the state-sanctioned labor federation to allow unions in its outlets in China, where it has 30,000 employees.

Mom, Pop, apple pie, and baseball. And, oh yeah, communists.

It's even more sad now how much Wal-Mart viciously fights American workers who try to improve their lives by working together for decent pay and benefits.

I like Left in the West's take:

In other words, political organizations in Wal-Mart are acceptable as long as those political organizations are government mandated efforts to keep political tabs on employees. This is nothing more than Wal-Mart working hand in hand with Beijing to continue oppression of the Chinese.' (The Flicker Journal)

Make no mistake about it folks. We cannot let big corporations and the greedy in our society destroy America. Even if you are not a member of a union, I encourage you to take a closer look at your elected officials and ask them the hard questions like 'what have you done to support workers in our community?' Get active in finding out what your Congressman and Senators are doing in your name and make sure it is the right thing. Our laws are what make us the great democracy and society we are and it's only our laws that will keep us there. Also, let's put pressure on the big corporations and let them know that we expect them to treat their employees with dignity and respect and give them a decent living and fair and equitable compensation for their work (WE ARE WATCHING YOU!!!). Get involved and be vilgilant in keeping America strong and proud.

Traffic 101


I recently came across a page while surfing that was introducing readers to a concept known as 'Synergestic Traffic'. The site lead the reader to believe that by creating various web pages with popunder code and by linking them with banner code and pages with various banners and headlines, one could increase traffic to a website by many fold simply by accumulating the credits from the different exchanges and popunder credits these sites would generate. It was then I noticed the copyright date on the site. It was 2004.

Schemes and tricks are not what drives traffic and readers to a site. Modern traffic technique is simple: generate your reader's interest and give him fresh content that will keep him coming back. Blogs are one form of communication that offers the opportunity for both traffic and unique content. Readers often glean for new information from blogs plus they make pretty interesting reading. Win-win.

The key to a succesful blog is to tie it to your main website and keep it updated regularly. By keeping your blog updated, you keep a good rating in the search engines and keep the traffic coming to your site. Learning the tips and tricks for this type of exposure are not hard and anyone can do it with the proper information.

Traffic 101 can be easy if you know where to look and learn."

Being a proficient webmaster is a truly time-consuming business but it does has it dividends. I am getting used to checking out all the little blubs and gizmos which make my site what it is and am amazed by what the little things can do for your site.

Keywords are a good example. Learning to play the keyword game can be a profitable exercise but it is good time spent. There are many good keyword tools out there (Overture, Niche Bot, etc.); the secret is finding one and using it to keep the search bots happy when they come to your site. Remember to stay with the relevant and use what's actually on your site to pick the keywords you will use in the meta tags.

Design is another little item that affects the operation of your site. While it is true that graphics don't drive traffic, visitors are affected somewhat by what they see in terms of how well designed a web page's layout is and may be prompted to stay a bit longer or visit ads on a site they are attracted to visually. I have started playing around a bit with some of my pages to see what works and what doesn't. If you are a webmaster, you might want to make sure that your visitors aren't at least scared away by your page designs.

As with all things, content is king. Strive to give your visitors a reason to visit and stick around at your site. Visit other sites to see what's out there and take advantage of linking to bring the outside world into your site. Give your audience a good show and they will always be back for more.

Right now, I am tinkering around with blogging and trying to tie that in with my website as it is a good medium for getting feedback and comments from people who come to my sites. If you're not into blogging, I suggest you consider it to bring people to your site. It's fun, relaxing, and a good way to connect with people as well as a time-tested traffic driver.

Until the next time we meet my friends,

Memorial Day Weekend Ahead...

Summer! I have waited for this one for quite awhile. With birthday #44 around the corner, I am planning on a weekend of fun. Old favorite movies, plugging away at the video console and a look at some good reads. The grass cutting is done, the cars are washed, and the kids are taken care of. Yes, this will be a good old weekend of self TLC.

Have settled into a groove web-wise and am getting used to blogging regularly as I should. Just gotta keep the masses entertained and guessing my next move. Wardrobe is due for a tune up and I am taking suggestions. Any takers? Casuals and jeans are in my future and some summer garb for the trip to Orlando on June 25th. Queen Sheila is busy planning this one as it will be just the two of us although it will be part business (Local 462 of the Steelworkers are going to get their money's worth but there will be plenty of time for fun and frolic).

You Disney World Pros feel free to send me your comments and suggestions as this is my first trip into virgin territory in Mickeymouseville. Cheap but good eats suggestions are really welcome as I will be trying to show some fiscal restraint with the royal budget.

Well this is adios but hello summer. Let's be careful out there and enjoy your weekend above all else...

Kingdom of Nye Webblog: "I recently stumbled into the world of pay-per-click advertising in my work. Although I've considered it before, I'd been avoiding it for some of the 'cheaper' forms of advertising. I must admit, I have never been more wrong. Pay-per-click advertising has grown up and is one of the up and coming ways to advertise on the web. Why pay-per-click? With the advent of Adsense and other forms of text advertising on sites that are acceptable to viewers, pay-per-click is the place to gather those lost souls called customers to your business. Last year, an estimated $741.2 million was spent on pay-per-click advertising. Over 80% of internet traffic is driven through search engines on the internet. One survey found that over 300 million searches take place on major search engines everyday. Those are just numbers that are too big to ignore.

If you are like I am, you questioned the wisdom of a pay-per-click ad campaign as perhaps too expensive. Not anymore. With certain search engine sites, you can actually budget your listings and bids on a day-to-day basis and use tools like keyword reseachers to plan your campaign out. Also, if you place ads on your websites to generate revenue, you defray the cost of advertising or even make money from the clickthroughs from your sites.

Being flexible and resourceful with your advertising is the key. Don't be afraid to try new things and diversify your advertising. Take advantage of placing ads from pay-per click advertisers to start gaining from the traffic on your site and watch and monitor your numbers so you can keep using what works. Having an online business is a 24-7 proposition and you should treat it as such. Pay-per-click works for you, is easy to manage, and can let you see the trends of who is coming to your site so you can plan more effectively. If you haven't considered pay-per-click as a option, I'd urge you to take another look. Pay-per-click might just be the route to success your business has been waiting for...
