2008-01-07 07:34:00
How to get visitors for 5 cents in pay per click search engines when mostpeople are paying 57 cents..Pay per click search engines are a great way to generate traffic. The problem is that most of the good keywords cost 50 cents or more. Here's how you can get traffic for much lessIf you want to get the maximum number of visitors, then you should implement all three strategies.This page assumes that you understand the basics of how pay-per-click advertising works, and that you understand how Google and Overture work.How to get 5 cent visitors from GoogleOk, so let's start with Google. Remember that the system for Google is totally different to Overture. We are dealing with Overture and Google on this page because they are the ones that are going to drive the majority of traffic for you. It is actually much easier to get clicks for 5 cents or even lower at other pay per click search engines, but it is difficult to get very many clicks.So basically the secret for Google is to do prope...

Nice Hair painting
2007-11-02 17:06:00
Author: Linda BergkvistPainting hair isn't, obviously, like painting a face. Doing a tutorial on it is a wildly different experience than a face tutorial. Why? A hair doesn't have any static features. There is no way of telling you where to place a strand of hair the way I can tell you where the nose goes. There's no anatomy of it, except that it has a certain weight and is likely to fall a certain way, and even that you can mess with because there is hair spray and gel and whatever else you might stick in it (blood or whatever, haha).So. I've done the best I can. I've worked on this for a fair while (longer than I'd like to admit) and now I've finally added the finishing touches.Throughout the tutorial you'll see some little tips and tricks added to the actual instruction pictures. Some of them are the brushes I'm using, some are tips directly related to the painting of hair, and some are just thoughts I thought I'd add as I went along.Instructions: The first thing you ne...

Nice eye paiting tutorial
2007-11-02 16:39:00
Author: Linda BergkvistThe eye is probably the most catching thing about the human face. It's where we're looking when we're talking to people. It's where tears emerge from, it's where we indicate what we're looking at and often what we're thinking about what we see. If you're doing a painting and you do everything beautifully but you make the eyes look dead... then that's it, you've not painted a human, you've painted a mannequin. A dead thing.Instructions: Let us start with a blank piece of paper, only make it flesh coloured instead. Picking a good first colour for skin usually has some impact on all the other colours one will pick thereafter - for this reason, it's always pretty vital to start off in a good way. Not too pink, not too orange, and not too saturated.Common mistakes: Using a colour that is too saturated or too grey. A colour that is too orange or too pink. Try to find the middle ground, it will affect the rest of the painting.Instructions: Secondly, sketc...

Dynamic Background Creation
2007-11-02 13:51:00
Author: ExfourOk in this tutorial I will explain the creation of dynamic backgrounds with lighting/shading and small details. Do you think every room is spotlighted so theres barely any shading? Do you think that every wall is flat and has no imperfections? Than you'd be wrong, this tutorial will show you all the basics of making a realistic background.NOTE: For some effects, it is much easier to use Flash 8, so thats what I'm using for this tutorial. I also designed this for beginners to easily pick up on it. --------------------------Draw the sky across the stage and give it a horizontal linear gradient. By horizontal I mean the way the fill modifier is going. The sky is practicly what sets the mood for the entire set and defines what time of the day it is, the weather, etc., so choose your colors based off that. Image: Click Image to enlarge ...

In this post, I summarize those ways that Google depends on to detect whether the clicks on your site are invalid or not. Google will not first ban your account immediately.

25 Tips To Optimize Your Blog For Readers and Search Engines
2007-10-29 18:40:00
Author:Jennifer SleggEveryone and their dog (yes, there are a few dogs out there with their own blogs) have started up a blog these days, but many people just aren?t taking the steps needed to optimize their blogs for both readers and search engines. While blogs can be business related (another blog about mesothelioma anyone?) they can also be personal where you talk about the great ham sandwich you had for lunch today or the crappy service you had at that trendy restaurant last night.But whether your blog is business or personal, you should ensure that you are optimizing your blog for both your readers (after all, you want to keep those readers coming back) and the search engines. Unfortunately, optimization is an important step that far too many blogs seem to be skipping over, even those that have a broad appeal to surfers and have the potential to be monetizable.However, optimizing a blog is a bit different than your standard website search engine optimization (SEO), particularly...
