SEO – How Cloaking Sabotages SEO

One of the largest newbie mistakes made by people first trying out search engine optimization on their websites is to try and cloak it. Most people do not even realize that they are practicing cloaking when they do it and even perceive it as a legitimate form of SEO but the problem is that the big search engines will penalize and blacklist your site for doing it.

In a nutshell, cloaking is the practice of using keywords and metatags to show a search engine spider a different page then what your human visitor to your site is going to see. The purpose of doing this is to drive visitors to a site. An example would be a psychic site that uses the name of famous psychics such Sylvia Browne or John Edwards to promote its services even though they sell no books or services by those famous psychics who have high keyword popularity. Some high-ranking pages are cloaked simply to prevent others from stealing the underlying code but this is no longer such a problem as it is not just keyword content or metatags that the search engine algorithms look at nowdays when they go to index a site.

Using search terms in this phony way can put your site immediately at risk of being removed promptly from the Internet by a search engine. Search engines are becoming increasingly cognizant of the techniques used to try fool them, and they are also becoming better at detecting and removing pages that violate their terms of service. This is why it is also important to be careful of any kind of SEO service in case it is using a process such as "cloaking" to boost your site in the page rankings.

Underhanded tactics such as cloaking only work until the search engines catch you.

How to Get Approved For an Apartment Even With a Criminal Record

One of the most frustrating episodes ones can encounter is a denial of housing. Apartment complexes, which in reality are run by real estate management firms, use a number of factors to determine who should rent and who should not. One of the most common factors that they use is criminal background check. A criminal history can be one of the greatest huddles one can ever come across in the process of renting an apartment.

The reason apartment communities request a criminal background check is first of all for the safety of the overall community. There is a general consensus that people with violent pasts are bound to fall back into their previous destructive habits. The concept of history repeats itself seems to be a prevailing belief in many places when it comes to criminal history and nowhere more so than in apartment leasing offices.

Another reason why apartment leasing offices conduct a criminal background check is so as to create the appearance of safety in the community and in so doing have the justification to charge more for rent. If a neighborhood or apartment housing community has a high level of crime, then tenants will not want to renew their leases and this means that there will be more housing units which are vacant and which the management has to fill (or risk being censored by the owner). The more housing units are vacant in an apartment community the more it hurts the management bottom line because this drives down the rent.

When conducting criminal background checks, apartments normally concentrate on felony convictions. Misdemeanor crimes which are only punishable by fines are generally not a concern. If you have a misdemeanor, you should not be concerned but if it is a felony you may get a denial.

There are two main ways to get an apartment approval if you have a criminal record. The first one is to check the nature of your offense and see whether you received what is called a deferred adjudication. This is a probation granted to first time offenders and is also known as community supervision. If you were convicted of a misdemeanor, and got probation, you can go to the county clerk’s office and request for what is called a court deposition. This is a print-out that shows the offense, the court that heard the case, and the judgment that was rendered and the fact that you have deferred adjudication. The printout also states that you have successfully completed the community service without any other incidences and that you should not be discriminated against when it comes to services. You can take a copy of this document to an apartment manager and in most cases they will approve you.

Another way to get an apartment is to get an expungement. This is the sealing of your criminal records and can be done depending on whether you’re eligible. There is an excellent eBook out in the market regarding how to get an apartment even with an existing criminal record and bad credit and you can get it at [http://www.simplecreditsecrets.net]

Prosperity Investing – Tips For Your Financial Prosperity

Do You Know How to Fund Your Investments?

Welcome readers, and thank you for reading this post, "Private Money Goldmine". I realize that there are thousands of investment manuals and self-help books on the market, and that you could easily create another author's materials, but after reading my little known approach to increasing the return on your retirement investment money, you'll be certain you've made the right choice. What you'll learn in this article is everything that your bank, your investment counselor, your accountant and your attorney either do not want you to know, or do not even know themselves!

You'll find the secrets to investment strategies that only the wealthiest of investors have known for years. Be prepared to have your eyes opened to a world of investment opportunities that you have only dreamed of, but that can be a reality, right here, right now.

How long have you been waiting to grow your retirement savings into an amount that you're confident will keep you in the lifestyle to which you've become accredited for the rest of your natural life?

Or better still, an amount that you'll be happy leaving to your children or grand children to give them the start in life that you may not have had? If you're counting on Social Security to accomplish either of those goals, you're in for a huge disappointment. No, while Social Security may give you enough money to survive at the poverty level upon your retirement (if it's even still in existence when you get there), it will not begin to allow you the financial freedom to enjoy the lifestyle that you deserve .

Yes, your retirement "nest egg" is up to you to accumulate, and depending upon your age, some of us have more or less time than others to grow that retirement fund. That's exactly why I'm writing thisarticle, to educate everyone who's willing to listen, to the fact that your money will never grow fast enough to create a legacy for your family if it's invested in a vehicle that's providing an annual return of 1% – 5%!

No, you need a double-digit return at a minimum, coming to you by way of "passive income", if you want to create multi-generational wealth. But it does not end there. Actually, personal success is just the beginning of what I believe is my path of purpose in life. It's really a blessing to find out what it is that you are passionate about in life, and after searching for many years, I personally have come to the realization that my passion is helping other people accomplish their goals.

I have helped many people become first-time homeowners, helped others attract passive income into their lives, and now I'm ready to be the ultimate philanthropist. I'm ready to give in a way that I never thought I could give before, as well as show others that they can do the same thing.

Everyone is so fascinated by real estate, from the "flip this house" shows on television to the "no money down" investing programs sold on infomercials at 2:00 AM. Those real estate investors are not geniuses. They are average people, just like you and me.

It's just that they took hold of the information that they gathered and actually acted on that information. That's exactly what I'd like to encourage you to do.

Have you ever heard anyone say that he or she is a self-made millionaire? Is it possible to be a self-made millionaire? If you had asked me this question five years ago I may have believed that a person really can create wealth without the help of anyone.

"Self-made" clearly means to me that no one else had anything to do with someone's success. I only have one question to the self-made millionaires in this world. "What about God"? Where does God come into play in our narcissistic ways? Success does not come from a human being alone.

We should never feel that we do not need to acknowledge a higher power. From where I stand in my life at this time, the higher power is Jesus Christ. Without Him, I could not begin to do the things that I envision doing. If you recognize that a higher power is responsible for everything from making the earth to the heavens, you should give glory to the only Being that is really worthy the of the glory.

Everyone has a piece to a dream – something that they're passionate about more than anything else. Nine times out of 10 it's not the job that they're working at right now. Real estate investing is one vehicle that allows you to create massive wealth for your family and to leave a legacy.

Hopefully once you learn my techniques you will become more of a giver and you'll thank God for your blessings and you will believe that there are no such things as self-made millionaires. God-made millionaires are people like you and I who understand that alone, we are nothing.

This is my declaration to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I acknowledge that all of my gifts and talents come from you. Give me the wisdom to teach your people to be givers and conduits of love. You are fortunate to have the awareness of the ministry that was instilled inside of you at birth. That ministry my friends, is a finance Ministry.

Most people do not have a clue about the concept of "passive income". The only thing they know is earned income, and as we all know, earned income is income that is totally dependent upon your personal efforts. I'm sure you know the routine quite well.

You get up every single morning at five o'clock to get the kids off to school, sit in traffic for 30 minutes on your way to a JOB (Just Over Broke) that you do not even like, only to walk into a world where you will be chained to a desk for the next 8 to 10 hours. At this JOB you will, by virtue of your job description, spend every day fulfilling someone else's dream.

You see, the owner of the company has a dream, and understands passive income. You, my friends, are his passive income. If your boss decides to take a vacation this week, his or her company will still operate and his income will not be negatively affected by his absence. Once you understand the concept of passive income, hopefully you will do whatever it takes to discover how to make it work in your life. Getting rich is not hard at all. It just takes "passive income".

Passive income applies to any business and any person. But what I'm going to do today is to show you how to use self directed IRAs (your private money) to create that tax free, passive income and capitalize on what I call the "Private Money Goldmine". I have recently discovered the power of investing in real estate with private money, and because of that knowledge I am creating a real estate empire for my family.

Real estate is the easiest way that I know to create passive income in your life and it does not require a Harvard education. So if you follow my steps and start thinking a little bit differently. Are you familiar with the power of a self directed IRA? It can truly transform your life.

This article is the blueprint for the average person to make fabulous amounts of money, tax free for life. I pray that this article blesses you the same way that is blessed me and that it allows you to triple your rate of return on your future investments.

As Always, Keep God 1st, Invest in People
