Barry Scott -Digest Editor

Being a full time member of a social community can be rewarding, it just depends on what you want out of the community and what you are willing to put in. There are several types of Social and Business Networking communities out there and all have their own special features with different levels of services. One of the things that I have always liked about Adlandpro is the human element is very much a part of our community.

We have a community that is open to new members, that participates in social events like the Person of the Week, the Best Forum Award, Just Perfect Award and subscribe and contribute to various community newsletters. They interact with each other and look after the community by warning others and Admin of anyone scamming or spamming. Our members are located worldwide so not only is there a business element there is a curiosity and social element that makes us unique.

I am proud of the community that we are all part of and it's members like you that make the Adland Community what it is today. Thank you to all that make this community great.  

As always and feedback or questions are always welcome, just click on my name below

Sincerely, Barry Scott Editor

How to Use a Free CMS to Power Your Online Businesses

By Darren W. Chow
Many years ago, a good CMS cost several thousand dollars. And that's not the end of the fees. Some vendors even charge monthly or yearly maintenance fees for the use of their CMS software. Many small businesses find it hard to justify such spending. So they stick to DIY web pages and avoid using costly CMS for their business sites.

Fortunately, all that has changed. The open source community has evolved to such an advanced stage that you no longer have to pay a single cent for the use of such software. Need a good software for ease of maintenance? No problem. You can always install a free open source CMS with a few simple clicks.

Step 1: Choose cPANEL hosting. - I highly recommend choosing Linux hosting with cPANEL control panel because you can install all kinds of software easily. Just choose your desired software (e.g. WordPress, Joomla, Mambo or Phpnuke) and then click "install". The installation wizard will guide you through the entire process. It's painless, and it's fast and error free.

Step 2: Choose a software that you are comfortable with. - You don't have to know the technical aspects of the software. But you do need to know how to operate the software. Most CMS comes with intuitive admin control panel. You can configure the entire site (e.g. install themes and plugins) from within the admin control panel. WordPress is so advanced that you don't even have to download additional plugins or themes to your local computer. You can install the add-ons directly on your website.

Step 3: Login and configure your website. - There are many settings you can configure, depending on the CMS you are using. The most important thing is to ensure that your site is search engine friendly. For example, you can install a plugin known as "SEO Platinum" and that helps to keep web pages search engine friendly. You want the site to be search friendly because the web pages tend to rank better when they are search optimized. That means free traffic for your site! The thought of being able to acquire new customers without having to pay a single cent sounds exciting.

Step 4: Learn simple HTML.

Without a CMS, you are highly dependent on your webmaster if you want to make changes. What if your webmaster charges a fee every time you want to make some simple changes? The minor changes can add up to quite a substantial expense. To avoid having to pay through your nose, pick up some simple HTML. At the very least, learn how to format texts and create text links. You don't have to become an expert programmer. But being HTML savvy allows you to update your own sites quickly.

No matter its joomla, drupal, phpnuke, mambo or any other CMS software, you can install it at ipage php hosting plan. Ipagereview.org is the website about ipage hosting, review, user testimonial and ipage coupon code. Find more details here.

 Building and Promoting a Directory Website to Earn Revenue

By Martin Glover
Web directories can be a fulfilling and successful way to list a number of sites you have an interest in and the niche markets are starting to develop their own directories to list sites relevant to people interested in that market. Building a directory can be done very easily with a little know how.

Directory software

One key element of the directory website is to use a good bit of software for running your directory on. There are a number of various options to choose from both free and paid. PHP Link Directory is one of the leading Premium directory software platforms but there are lesser known ones which offer the same types of features. Arfooo is one of those and not only does it feature the opportunity to have paid listings, but it is SEO friendly and has been thought about.

Once you have a platform chosen you need to make sure you have a web host to install it on and a place for it to reside on the internet. If you are using Arfooo there are not many hosts who can support this out of the box but I will recommend andthenhost as their tech support have been able to help me with it in the past.

Free and Premium listings

One benefit of directories is that you can make money selling premium listings (so that people will pay you for their site to appear at the top of the results.) This can be quite a lucrative income once your site becomes well known and gains a higher page rank. Early on though it is recommended you stay for free listings to help build you site. You can improve page rank by demanding your site gets a backlink to it in return for a free listing.

Once you have all the setup in place you can get promoting the site using many SEO techniques and start seeing results. Get started by getting your Arfooo hosting set up with http://www.andthenhost.com and start your directory today.
