If you’re looking to market your business or your trade, you might want to reconsider spending thousands of dollars on a pricey marketing campaign. For a fraction of the cost, you could set up a blog to spread the word about your services. Setting up your own blog on the web is about as easy as making an account on eBay. Blogging can indeed help you market your business for free online.
Blogging to market your business
If you want to properly utilize a blog to market yourself, your business, or a certain product, you have to do what everyone else in the marketing business does to achieve success, in or out of the web: work for it. Despite the legions of bloggers praising the ease of blogging as a marketing tool, the truth is that you’ll have to commit yourself daily to your blog if you want to see any substantive results.

First let me explain the entire incident.
I wanted to add a code to the header section in my theme. I hence logged into the theme editor section and opened the header.php file. I observed something very strange in the file. There was some code added to every line that started with <?php. It looked like a base64 code to me, but I was puzzled as to how this code was added to the theme, when originally I had no such code.
That was enough for ...

Anyone who has taken a close look at their own Google Plus profile may have noticed something a little weird. The profile immediately ranks highly in the search engine for searches including their own name.
In other words: while you may have several other online identities (I have at least four), which you have built up naturally through months or even years of hard work – your Google identity has pipped them all to the post and taken number one ranking. That’s in sharp contra ...
