First, use some common sense to monitor your children on the Internet the easy way. For instance, simply place the computer in a public area perhaps the kitchen where you can monitor them. Some children will complain loudly but these are your rules. They live under your house, right? You’re the boss. Enforce the rules and be firm yet let your children understand that you love them too. To help you with this process create an Internet contract that establishes your house rules. This will clearly outline what are your responsibilities and what are their responsibilities for their Internet usage. You can also state that they should contact you if they encounter any inappropriate material or people which makes them feel uncomfortable.
Secondly, a good program will help you monitor your children on the Internet. There are several and some are free yet I’m always a believer in paying for good software. If you can afford Internet access for your children then you can afford good monitoring software. The cost is generally around $30 or $40
We constantly hear about people talking to each other over the internet. We often see an advertisement offering free calls, saying that all you need is an internet connection.
Is it a myth that we can make free calls to a telephone number from a computer? Do we need an internet phone line to place a call? Is it possible to call to destinations anywhere in the world, for free? Or, do you need a special internet phone? Are the calls really free? What if the person I want to phone does not have internet? How can there be free calls for mobile phones when mobile telephony is known to be expensive?
If you have that kind of questions in your mind, this article is for you, since it throws some light on basic ideas that you can use to dig on and make free calls thanks to the internet.
Free calls? How free is “free”?
Yes, you can make free calls over the internet. Free, as in not paying
One of the greatest things about the Internet is all of these tips, tricks, and techniques that we’re sharing are so low-cost or even no cost that when you fail you lose very little – or even no money whatsoever. That’s the best way to fail! The PERFECT product that can make you financially independent for life must be something unique that people can’t get anywhere else. It must be compelling enough to make people want to send you their money through the mail. It must be compelling enough to get people captivated with the product and make them feel that they can buy it sight unseen. You have to be careful when saying it is free. You don’t want to charge too high of a processing fee, but you can charge a processing fee to cover your fees of the cost of getting it on the Internet and getting it set up.
Another powerful factor when it comes to placing these banner ads on your site, is that although you may worry about them being cluttered up,
Before the advent of email most of us, other than sending out cards for special occasions, would write very few letters. If we did write a letter, it was carefully prepared, and considerable thought went into it. Today, with computer access available to most people, we have tremendously increased our amount of written communication, and sometimes fall into a trap. There are seven words that will serve as our guide and help us to communicate more effectively.
Perhaps the first word to consider is “Brevity” – we receive and respond to more mail each day, than we would in a year, before the advent of the Internet. As we became experienced with email, we found certain shortcuts that we would never use in “pen and ink” communications.
Many people simply copy the entire note to which they are responding, and make their comments. Others might lift a pertinent paragraph and respond. This is acceptable practice. Let’s face it – unless you are socializing with a friend, if someone asks a question, they want an answer, and don’t
What should you do to make my internet domain registration a reality? You and I both know that the first necessary step in gaining an internet presence is to have a domain name. With so many advertisements for internet domain registration and hosting agencies, it can be difficult to know exactly what you should do to get your website up and running and out where everyone can get to it. Just take a deep breath and together let’s work through the steps.
The first step in your internet domain registration is to choose a domain name. The name you choose can be just about anything you want, as long as it is not already taken. The rules are not complicated for what is allowed. You must use only letters, numbers, and or hyphens and is limited to 70 characters. However, you should consider fewer characters so that people will be able to remember the domain name. Also, they are case insensitive so capitalization does not matter.
The next step is to determine where you are
First impressions are extremely important if you hope to do business on the Web. After you refine your ads, and if you make your pitch to a targeted group, you will start to get visitors to your web site. Here is where many would be entrepreneurs drop the ball.
Putting up a web site is not a difficult task, but designing a good one is, and if you don’t pay attention, it might be working against you. Think about it, the web site is not only the first impression of you and your business, it is crucial to your success or failure.
People don’t waste a whole lot of time when visiting a site. If it isn’t professional looking, they may just “click away”. While looks are important, you must spend time on developing good copy.
Copy written by affiliate programs has been seen over and over, and while it may have been effective at one time, it is so overused that people immediately recognize it for what it is.
In addition to good copy, which of course
Now there is no law that says you have to follow these rules, but if you are in business on the Web, you should definitely pay attention.
Rule #1 – Turn off your CAPS LOCK – Some people seem to feel that if they write their E-mail in ALL CAPS it will be more effective.
Quite the opposite is the case. CAPS should be used only for emphasis. Many people consider the use of ALL CAPS as being the equivalent of shouting and do take offense at it.
Rule #2 – Never send multiple E-mails without using Blind Carbon Copies (BCC). If every E-mail address you sent it to is displayed, you are making the spammers job a lot easier when they harvest addresses. But you have to address it to someone, even if using BCC, so remember, there are a lot of “kooks” in this world who will persecute anyone they can identify.
When using BCC, never send the note to someone on your mailing list. If you have a second ID use that, or

If you are interested in getting loads of traffic to your blog then you need to use search engine optimization to improve your blog engine rankings. Search engines like Google and Yahoo employ a ranking algorithm to decide the order websites are returned when an Internet user searches for information on a particular niche. Google, Yahoo and other ranking websites apply different ranking algorithms. This makes is harder for you to optimize your blog. In this article you will learn some useful tips you can use to help you to optimize your blog for most search engines. Using relevant keywords, generating back links to your blogs, and image tags are some of my most valuable tips you can use to optimize your blog ranking for most search engines.
1. Make sure you include relevant keywords – When writing your blogs make sure that you a writing to a specific audience and include keywords that you know they will enter on the search engines which will redirect them to your blog. The more keywords you use the more relevant your
There are several safety practices you should be aware of when you are using your computer. Keep these tips in mind to secure your computer, your information, and your identity when surfing the web.
1) Use WPA2 Wi-Fi Protected Access.
Know what kind of Wireless Security you have in your home network. Not sure what kind you have? Open up your network connection and mouse over your network to find your security type. You can have either “WEP,” “WPA,” or “WPA2.” There are tools that are currently available to hackers that can break through WEP and WPA security based networks. WPA2 has not been compromised as of today and is considered to be the strongest security protocol for home-based networks. Any router that is currently being sold today that bears the Wi-Fi logo must support WPA2. If your router does not support WPA2 it’s time for a new router!
2) Use A Password Storage Program
Instead of using Word documents to keep track of all your online accounts or writing these
A person could go myopic sifting through pages of search results from Google and Yahoo! I keep a bottle of eyedrops on my desk just for that reason. Unfortunately, nothing can restore the time I lose by a poorly structured search. In a perfect world, I could immediately guess the most effective keywords that might also be the exact keywords selected by a web developer to tell the search engines how to index a specific page. But, there is very little precision in language and, although choosing the right keywords might help lessen the strain on our eyes and our time, learning the capabilities of our favorite search engines will give us the best results.
For example, did you know that certain keywords, or rather “meta terms” trigger more optimized and immediate search results? Let’s say you want to know the current weather in El Paso, Texas. Enter the following as your search terms:
weather el paso
and immediately, you’ll see the temperature and forecast for that day. Here’s what Google showed me for June
When you look for something on the internet, where do you turn?
My guess is either Google, Yahoo or Bing. Using these search engines turns your questions into quality search results. Any search engine’s products are solely the quality of their answers to your queries. If you are a business or you are looking to gain an audience to pitch your views, you need to rank well with these engines. Ranking well usually means you occupy a spot on the top two pages of someone’s search query.
Google’s search results are found due to a highly complex and long algorithm. Just like famous recipes for food companies, only 2-3 people actually know the algorithm. This is to minimize the risk of anyone finding this magic code out, doing so would ruin the company and make someone a lot of money!
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has been formulated by companies and individuals through trial and error. Finding out what works and what does not is an ongoing task.
There is nothing more frustrating than a broadband connection that is intermittent. You may be in the middle of some important research, or booking a holiday when you are suddenly cut off.

Ask any kid from first grade to college to name the phone, media player or tablet that they covet the most and you’ll hear iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad. Brand awareness and demand for Apple products among the jungle gym crowd has never been higher. What most parents don’t realize though is that if appropriate safety checks aren’t put in place, Apple’s wonderful devices could be an unguarded gateway to dangerous forbidden fruits.
While most parents know they should use parental controls on their home computers, according to a survey by McAfee, four out of five parents fail to turn such software on. Nearly a third of parents left their kids alone when surfing, and almost half of parents said they didn’t know if their kids had social networking accounts at sites like Facebook. (Think your kid is too young? Over 20 percent of 4th – 5th graders have a social networking profile. According to a Cox Communications study, 72 percent of teens have a social networking profile and nearly half have a public profile
Online safety is never far from any debate on children and the internet. There can be little doubt that the Internet is becoming integral to the lives of all of us and the various ways that this is being used in education complements more traditional teaching methods and enables students to interact and learn more effectively.

The internet is a massive store of information. The amount of information being added each day is also huge. Anybody can add and delete information. By and large, the net space remains unmonitored, because it is simply impossible to keep a watch over each new website, file, directory or link that is added. In this scenario, anti-social elements often act maliciously, adding information that contains deadly viruses, or infecting links and even entire websites with viruses, malware, spyware, and other such devastating material. Such material can damage your computer in a variety of ways, such as deletion of entire folders, corruption of files, or crashing of the hard disk.
