Free Antivirus Software And Comparison

With so many different brands of antivirus software, choosing one can not only be difficult, but also expensive. With this being said, I would like to share with you some of the best free antivirus programs available including a site that ranks all antivirus software based on how successful they are at removing viruses.

Avast 4 Home Edition is one of the best free antivirus programs available. Avast requires a free 1-year registration, which can be renewed upon expiration. The only thing I don’t like about Avast is the interface. It looks like it is supposed to play music instead of scan for viruses. If you can get past the interface though, Avast is still one great product.

AVG Antivirus Free Edition is also another great free antivirus program. The install is lite and it seems to use little resources. The biggest difference in the free edition and the premium edition is that some non-critical features are disabled, updates are not pushed out as fast, and you don’t have access to 24/7 technical support. Even with these differences, the AVG Free Edition is still one of the best.

Google Adsense Tips, Tricks, and Secrets

Build an Empire?

When you’re deciding to become a website publisher you will fall into one of two broad categories:

  • * Publish 100 websites that each earn $1 a day profit
    * Publish 1 website that earns $100 a day profit
  • The reality of it is, most people end up somewhere in between. Having 100 websites leaves you with maintenance, management and content issues. Having one website leaves you open to all sort of fluctuations (search engines algorithm’s, market trends, etc). You can adapt your plan on the way, but you’ll have an easier time if you start out going in the direction of where you want to end up.
    General or Niche

    You can build your website around general topics or niche ones. Generally speaking niche websites work better with adsense. First off the ad targeting is much better. Secondly as you have a narrow focus your writing naturally becomes more expert in nature. Hopefully this makes you more authority in your field.

    If this is your first try at building an adsense website, make it about something you enjoy. It will make the process much easier and less painful to accomplish. You should however make sure that your topic has enough of an ad inventory and the payout is at a level you are comfortable with. You may love medieval folk dancing, but the pool of advertisers for that subject is very small (in fact it’s currently zero).

    Once you’ve gotten the hang of how Adsense works on a website, you are going to want to dabble in some high paying keywords, you may even be tempted to buy a high paying keyword list. This does come with some dangers. First off the level of fraud is much higher on the big money terms. Secondly there is a distortion of the supply and demand relationship for these terms. Everyone wants ads on their website that make $35 or more a click, however the number of advertisers who are willing to pay that much is pretty limited. Additionally the competition for that traffic is going to be stiff. So, don’t try to run with the big dogs if you can’t keep up. If you have to ask if you’re a big dog, then chances are, you’re not. I have used a high dollar keywords report from cashkeywords.com and was pleased with my results (see cash keywords free offer recap).
