Many web sites seem to have graphics and moving images on their pages, some even have music, personally I think that music Is just wasted space on a website anyway, as a large percentage of people don’t even have their volume on. If you want to incorporate music it is good practice to let the visitor decide if they want to listen to it or not and give them a play and stop button.
The problem with this is the time it takes for the page to load.

Many web sites seem to have graphics and moving images on their pages, some even have music, personally I think that music Is just wasted space on a website anyway, as a large percentage of people don’t even have their volume on. If you want to incorporate music it is good practice to let the visitor decide if they want to listen to it or not and give them a play and stop button.
The problem with this is the time it takes for the page to load.

Many visitors to a website will not wait for the graphics to download they will simply back out and go to the next website in the listings and you have just lost yourself a sale.

High resolution graphics and music is fine for most people with a high speed broadband connection, but if you have anything less than that then waiting for graphics to download on a web page is very frustrating.

For the web designer themselves it is wise to test the website you have created on a 28.8 connection speed and see how fast your site downloads, it should be viewable within about 3 ?4 seconds maximum. It is recommended also that a site be no larger than 50k, you can still fit great graphics and content into a site with around 30k of content.

A tip is to make your graphics smaller in size and to use fewer colours, instead of a million, use 216 and try to keep your images smaller than 4k.

Instead of using graphics you can try colouring the cells, or changing the colour of borders. If you experiment a little the effects can be fantastic and obviously the less graphics you are using, the faster your webpage will load.

The thing to remember when developing a website is that less is more, we live in a world where we want everything now, so give the customer what they want!

Many people know how — and do conduct themselves in the real world properly. However, many people are unaware that this same conduct needs to be applied online as well. Net etiquette is basically the rules you should follow while in Cyberspace. These seven rules are what I learned on my Cyber journey and what I try to follow while on the Internet ?let’s see if you agree.

Many people know how — and do conduct themselves in the real world properly. However, many people are unaware that this same conduct needs to be applied online as well. Net etiquette is basically the rules you should follow while in Cyberspace. These seven rules are what I learned on my Cyber journey and what I try to follow while on the Internet ?let’s see if you agree.

First and foremost, you must remember that even though you are sitting alone at your computer ?and no one is replying, say to your blog, does not mean they are not lurking (reading and learning but not commenting). Translated, there are real people reading what you are writing ?and if you make derogatory comments or accusations ?they will be felt by that person. If you do make derogatory comments or accusations ?please verify, verify, verify, verify ?this is libel.

Second, be ethical ?being ethical should not go out the door when you get into Cyberspace ?what applies to offline business and personal conduct, applies to online business and personal conduct.

Third, if you go into a forum it is advisable to take the time to do some lurking before posting. Learn the ways of the forum before posting. Some forums will not tolerate any advertising ?they are there to discuss their topic and to learn, and to share information.

Fourth, the Internet allows you anonymity, which means, you are not judged by the way you look or the clothing you wear. But you are judged on what you write ?that is the only way in which people can make judgments on you and your character.

Fifth, when writing on the Internet, be sure to check your facts. Research and verify before getting on your soapbox ?it can save you a lot of grief ?loss creditability. Remember, your writing is their first impressions of you.

Sixth, be kind and do not use offense language.

Seventh, share your knowledge and be open to learning from others.

I would like to conclude by saying that the Internet is a vast international community of people, sharing ideas, experiences and knowledge. It is a great community, yes, there are some bad eggs, but the community is ever vigilant and will alert all to the bad eggs. While on the Internet, be aware of your conduct, for that is how the Internet knows who you are.

It is true that you can generate thousands of dollars per month. By just allowing a particular Adsense program to display their advertisements into your website, you will be given a percentage from the revenue generated from the impression (click) done by a visitor. In other words, you are on a win-win situation.

In order for you to profit more using Adsense, it is advised that you build two or more Adsense sites. Why two and not one? Creating more sites is much better; remember that you will be competing with top search engines optimizers (sites that are frequently displayed on the first few pages in a search engine). The art of creating Adsense sites is get them listed on the top pages of search engines for free if you choose the right niche.

The revenue that you can generate from these smaller niche sites will be much higher. You do not have to spend on advertising your site. Visitors will be entering your own website and there is a large probability that they will be clicking the ads that are displayed in your site.

So what is this niche? This is the selection of a particular topic with exact keywords that Adsense will pay you premium when a visitor clicks on that particular advertisement. It may not be the most trafficked site; but remember Adsense is serious in paying you once a visitor is interested on it and click their ads.

Building your Adsense Sites

There are three methods to build a website where Adsense can display their ads. These are discussed in the preceding sections.

The Content Model

You will be creating your website for a particular niche market. Normally, you would find the keywords for niche topics with a low number of search results but with a high number of search words. It will be your basis in creating your website which can contain between 20 to 50 pages. Remember that the important factor here is the content; so most probably. You will be integrating well-written content resources (such as articles) that your visitor may be interested to read.

The Single Page Model

Your website will have only a single. Conventionally, it is hard to attract visitors compared with sites having a hundred pages mainly because of less content integrated in it. However, you can still attract visitors by using the Pay-Per-Click (PPC) traffic and submitting your articles to article sites and directories. Another advantage is that the text is highly optimized towards a certain keyphrase that there are no other links that will be followed except the page itself. In this case, there is a great possibility that the visitor will be clicking on the ads. Just make sure that your contents are of great interest to your visitor.

The Number Game Model

You will be creating one site (either a single or multi-page site) that will attract visitors and generates revenues. After seeing the progress, you will start building a similar site that will double your Adsense revenues. It is just like creating a staircase website model; as you create more and more sites, your revenues will increase gradually.

You can try building your own Adsense site using any of the three methods discussed above. Remember that above all; target all your sites around the correct keywords. It will be an excellent way to have your Adsense site generates income.

Why Translating Your Website in Hindi Makes Better Sense

Did you know that in 2002, an estimated 32% of Internet users were non-English speakers? With the phenomenal growth of computer usage and the spread of the net fever, especially in the third world countries, the figure would have multiplied manifold in the past 4 years.

In fact, the Internet is fast becoming the basic and fundamental source and dissemination of information, purchases of goods and services worldwide. In addition, those computer and Internet users are increasingly from non-English speaking countries. This figure is constantly rising. In response, businesses have quickly become aware of the benefits of making their websites relevant to the native languages of the target audience.

Marketing is all about speaking the customers?language

There is no denying that the rest of the world outside of English-speaking countries is coming online faster than never before. What is the state of affairs, and how does that impact businesses worldwide? How serious is the impact of everyone “going global”? And, more importantly, what needs to be done with our Websites to fully take advantage of this wave of non-English-speaking people coming online?

Whether or not a person speaks English has really nothing to do with the responsibility of a Website to communicate in the language of the target markets. Indians read English just fine, and yet they feel comfortable to surf in their own language. They live their life in their own language, not in English. If you want to attract their attention, your site has to go where they are, and speak to them in their own language.

Outside the seven countries where English is native, and India too, there is no form of marketing in any country that happens in English. If someone doesn’t believe this, they should visit Europe, Asia or South America. People live their life in their own language, and your marketing better follow, whether the media is newspaper/magazine ads/articles, radio/TV, billboards… or Websites.

Enter Website Translation

Translating a Website is a viable answer because you then make an existing website accessible, usable and culturally suitable to your specific target audience. This requires both programming expertise and linguistic/cultural knowledge.

In the majority of cases it is the lack of linguistic and cultural input that lets a website localization project down. In order to give an insight into the impact culture has on website localization the following examples depict areas in which a solid understanding of the target culture is necessary.

Some very good reasons to translate your website into Hindi

?One of the official languages of India, with a population of over 1 billion. Hindi has 366 million first-language speakers; additional 121 million second-language speakers. Spoken throughout northern India: Delhi; Uttar Pradesh; Rajasthan; Punjab; Madhya Pradesh; northern Bihar; Himachal Pradesh.
?Hindi is also spoken in Bangladesh, Belize, Botswana, Germany, Kenya, Nepal, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Uganda, UAE, United Kingdom, USA, Yemen, and Zambia.
?With the growing numbers of Indans buying PC’s and Internet access available from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, English speakers will soon be in the minority when it comes to Internet use.
?Results of research carried out by Nielsen-Net ratings in March 2005 described foreign internet markets as “low hanging fruit,?i.e. if you have the will and foresight there are massive revenues to be found for relatively little effort.
?As Kaizad Gotla, senior analyst at Nielsen-Netratings states, “The easiest opportunities are in countries where Internet usage patterns and user/site relationships are less established. Acquiring users in markets that are currently in their growth stages will lead to a loyal user base that will pay dividends for Internet companies in the future.??The ability to communicate to a whole new audience in their own language will undoubtedly yield results not only in a financial sense (cost efficiency) but also in terms of marketing and creating awareness of your brand, service or product.
?For non-English speaking users looking for your product or service, you automatically capture their attention.
?A Hindi website shows you are thinking about the customer. That little extra effort shows you have thought and cared enough about them to offer the website in their language.

?For many cultures, more so in India, there is an issue of trust when it comes to buying over the Internet, especially if they feel it is in a language they are not fully proficient in. Offering them a language alternative allows the customers to feel secure
?Search engines lead people to your site. In countries such as China, Japan and France, Google, Yahoo and MSN are not the default search engines. Homegrown search engines are emerging and they are proving successful because they work in native languages and are focused on the habits and needs of their users. In addition, many of the key search engines, especially Google, are developing the capacity to run searches in Hindi. Having pages of your site available in Hindi ensures maximum potential for your site being picked up in searches.

Making a website in Hindi or translating the existing website does not complete the task. There are a lot of important, cultural, ethnic issues which form an essential part of the contents of the website in Hindi. Some examples, which need to be decided upon, in greater details, are mentioned below:
?Images and pictures ?as they carry subtle cultural intonations in them.
?Symbols – as with pictures, symbols can cause problems. Icons using fingers such as an OK sign or V-sign may mean different things to different cultures. Western symbols do not always mean the same abroad.
?Colors ?they are also loaded with cultural meanings.
?Ease of navigation – Access to certain pages is also a factor that can be considered as relevant.

Culture affects everything we do, say, read, hear and think and even websites cannot escape the influence of culture.

The impact of culture on the translation of a website is huge. The above few examples are literally the tip of the iceberg.
