Are you using WordPress for your blogs?
WordPress is an amazing CMS and publishing platform especially if your are into blogging. No Content Management Solution is as smooth and easy to use as WordPress and add to it the numerous functionality that WordPress offers and you have a killer tool to publish.
But it is not uncommon for any tool to get stuck up at times and that too at silly things and you then have a recipe for frustration. Most of the responses for any such small issues and snags with WordPress can be found at their support center, but there are still some issues that you will not find an answer to.
If you are not a high investment blogger, you might not want to spend money on hiring a web developer just to resolve such issues. I have come across numerous such instances and that is where the thought of delving into troubleshooting steps and solutions to problems with WordPress came to my mind.
One such common problem that people encounter with their newly installed or, just upgraded blog is a problem with “image upload”. You might come across an error saying “Unable to create directory /wp-content/uploads”/ The last line in this error will ask you to check the permissions of the parent folder in which you are uploading the image.
This is how you can resolve ...
What is the keyword that has given your blog the highest hits so far?
At first when I started blogging, my objective was to read as much material as possible, learn from them, set up my blog and start monetizing them.
After only the first week of setting up my blog, I saw visitors coming in, spending some time at my blog, reading my posts and giving me a few hits on my adsense links. My Google Adsense account showed a few hits and a few cents. I was very happy to see them, and I decided that I should do more with my blogs so that I can make more money online. I put in more efforts and waited to see ...
How many times have you experienced a shortage of time in managing your blogs?
When I started blogging and I entered the world of WordPress, I was overwhelmed with the options that WordPress offered. There was so much that I could do. Everyday I would login to my blog with the intention of writing a few blog posts. But by the time I logged out I found that all I did was upgrade a few plugins, add a few codes to the wordpress theme, in order to customize something, create a backup of my blog and check my blog stats.
I would regret having done all that because none of these activities were productive and I knew I was wasting time doing ...

Twitter List – the latest addition to Twitter.
Are your using Twitter to promote your business? Do you think it is worthy enough to be used?
Twitter has been a part of my promotional strategies since I joined it in June last year. Twitter was a less know phenomenon then. But by the time it exploded in the beginning of this year, I had a fair foothold of the microblogging platform.
I enjoy tweeting. I personally feel that it is a matter of how much you enjoy using this service, that decides if you will use it in your marketing strategy or, not.
If you are not using Twitter, I would recommend you to try to use it.
Okay, so now Twitter has introduced a ...
I had once earlier written about Yaro Starak’s Membership Site mastermind. You can read that post here.
Yaro is very particular about the way he runs his membership courses. He only admits a few people to his course and then closes it for the rest of the year. This time round he has made an exception and has opened the course again for a few days.
Since the time he released this course the last time, there are a lot of people who have made a fortune out of Membership Sites. I am one such online entrepreneur who is currently running 2 membership sites and is making a living online with them. I get a consistent income from ...

Do you really need to secure your WordPress Blogs?
Funny question, ain’t it?
At least I thought otherwise and hence never bothered to secure my blogs. I felt that my blogs were invincible and that nothing could happen to them.
I was mistaken. Terribly mistaken….!
For those of you who are regular visitors to my blog, you would have noticed that my blog was down for almost 3-5 days. And when it came back online, there were a few articles that were missing.
This was the status with my other blogs. A few were even worse. There were entire articles that were gone and my blogs went back almost a year back in time.
It was a simple server hack that happened to the hosting servers ...
What are buyer keywords?
The foundation of Internet Marketing is “KEYWORDS”. Any internet marketer without a list of good keywords is like a chemistry lab without chemicals. That’s a funny comparison, isn’t it?
I know that the comparison is funny indeed. So let me put it this way. Internet Marketing is a BIG FLOP if you set out without doing keyword research and without building a list of keywords.
Are all keywords capable of generating sales and revenue? The same way in which not every internet marketer is successful in internet marketing business, not all keywords can generate sales. In order to understand this you need to understand the stages through which a prospect goes through before buying something online.
Every prospect starts at ...
My blogs were down for the past few days….
I was frustrated and I tried calling up my hosting service provider to check what the problem was. I realized that I had not direct customer service number to call them on. The only option was to write to them by creating a “support trouble ticket”. No chat, no phone lines.
I raised a trouble ticket which took about a day for them to respond. The response was heart-breaking. They wrote,
Our servers have been hacked and were brought down by some people who were intentionally trying to target us. We have cleaned our servers and will be unable to restore your database and files. You will have to do a clean upload ...
