Word from Moderator
------------------------------
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It is OFFICIALLY the Year 2005, there is no way of dodging it any more!
Why would I try to dodge it, you ask? Well, new years imply new resolutions,
new beginnings, the holidays are over, it’s time to roll up the sleeves and go
to work – hopefully with new vigor! Unfortunately, the New Year also brought me a
good old fashioned flu and I sort of wish I could sleep through it.

It seems that I was overly optimistic in my estimates of the death toll in
the Far East in the last issue. The numbers grew to dismally gigantic proportions with
more pain, suffering and dismay sure to follow for the victims of the tsunami. NOT a
good omen for the Year 2005. On the other hand, the response of the rest of the
world has been surprisingly supportive. Even little ol’ Greece with a population of
barely 10 million managed to raise over 10 million Euros from private contributions
via a telethon to send to the area. Proof that humanity still exists.

The world suddenly shrunk in the past couple of weeks. We felt as strongly
about the tsunami victims halfway around the world as we would have felt if it had
happened in our back yard. The globe literally shook from the event – if we are
lucky, perhaps it will shake us out of our complacency and make us realize that we are
all citizens of ONE world with nowhere to run to if things go terribly wrong.

Re: What is the purpose of a forum?
From: Nina Nestoroff

Here it is 2005 already and I'm just reading the Adland Digest #427 from
12/10/2004... nothing like being on top of things! Because I am so behind
times, and a newbie to all this anyway, I made the mistake of doing a personal forum
to my Adland friends to tell them about a new online business. If I had read
this first, I would have realized that I was in error in my approach. After all, I've
been getting bombarded with forum invitations, which drives me crazy and drives my
mailbox to capacity. So, why didn't I realize that what I was doing was wrong??
Beats me, but I do see the errors of my ways now. My apologies to one and all. Thanks
for setting me straight.

To all, a prosperous 2005!!

Re: Thanks to Mark Wade.
From: Yvonne Finn

Hello Adland Digest,
I have always appreciated the supportive, high caliber posts in this
forum. But the one posted by Mark Wade in Friday's 31/12, really resonated with
me and what I am feeling both personally and professionally.

2004 has not been a good year for me and while I chastise myself by saying
that it could be worse, especially when compared to the ungoing tragedies around
the world, most recently the disaster in Asia, I don't always find it easy to
go on.

However, reading the post helped me to remember that sometimes just
showing up and making one's best effort is what makes us all winners in the end.

Thanks Mark and Happy New Year!

Yvonne Finn

Moderator’s note: Mark Wade was quite prolific on New Year’s Eve and I’m
not certain which post Yvonne refers too, but I’m assuming she is referring to
this page:

Where Have All The Hours Gone?
From: Yvonne Finn

The end of 2004 is only hours away.
Less or more, depending on the part of the world you're in.

For some the year is ending on such a tragic note, it almost defies
description. I am of course referring to the flooding in Asia.
Many of us have gotten used to hearing about the daily tragedies from
around the globe.

We do what we can, count our blessings and continue on, hoping we are
making a difference.

But this disaster on such a grand scale almost stops us in our tracks.
This is powerlessness magnified to the nth degree.
And yet, we must find ways to cope, to give, to support, through our
donations of money, food, clothing, those who need us now, more than ever.
And of course, through our prayers.

I do not know or understand why these terrible events come upon us humans,
but I hope that that with our prayers we can help the ones left behind to find
the strength to cope with the loss of those loved ones, so suddenly gone.
So, as most of us prepare to celebrate the New Year, let us also say a
prayer for those who cannot yet find any reason to be joyous.

Yvonne operates her own e-commerce site at

.She invites you to come visit sometime in the New Year, after you've
supported those who more in need at present.

Here is a very interesting discussion that has been going on for a while…
it’s all about using link exchanges to promote your website. I just “happen” to
have a very well placed links exchange section in one of my websites myself that is
highly sought after, so I do know that link exchanges work. Take a look at this
idea by Chester Misaki:

Tools for Online Tracking By S. Housley
================================

In order to determine which advertising and marketing efforts are
effective you must have ways to measure the results of those efforts. Alerts and instant
notifications can be instrumental in monitoring search engine position, trademarked terms,
monitoring competitors and staying abreast of online occurrences. And, of course, the
notification can be used for "ego searches".

Ego Searches - What is an ego search? Find out where your name or company is mentioned,
view forum posts or online articles that mention your name or company.

Trademarks - The best offense is a good defense. By monitoring newsgroups or search
engines for trademarked terms, you often head off a future conflict. As a trademark
owner, it is your responsibility to actively protect your mark. Otherwise, you could
lose your trademark rights. Monitoring tools send immediate notification should any
suspected trademark infringements occur.

Search Position - Statistics show that more than 85% of Internet users find web sites with
the help of the search engines. Therefore, a website's search engine position is
crucial to its success. Prudent webmasters regularly check their search engine position.
Monitoring fluctuations and re-indexing of major search engines affects keyword terms
and phrases. Monitoring of positions will alert webmasters to any shifts
before sales decline.

Competitor Watch - Monitoring newsgroups for mentions of competitors may allow you
opportunities to chime in and offer an alternative solution in a helpful, friendly way.
Knowing exactly what your online competitors are doing provides a competitive edge
that can be used to your advantage.

Website Downtime - Accessibility is the most critical measure of your website's performance.
If customers can't access your site, they can't shop; and if they can't shop,
they can't buy. More important, your business could gain a bad reputation among your
customers, which translates into negative word of mouth and even worse, if
you're highly visible, negative press. So regardless of what else you monitor,
you want to monitor websites for downtime.


Take a look at the various tools available and how they can be used to
keep you current on relevant issues.

WebAlerts - Recieve email updates of the latest relevant Google results
based on your choice of query or topic.
Alerts can be sent based on information in Google News, Google Searches or
both. http://www.google.com/webalerts

PubSub - PubSub matches your requests against new information as it
appears real time. Searches can be categorized to search, blog entries, SEC/EDGAR
Filings, press releases, news group posts or flight delays.
http://www.pubsub.com

Ego Alerts - Google news search turned into an RSS feed.
http://www.justinpfister.com/gnewsfeed.php


Ebay Alerts - Ebay Alerts monitoring will create an RSS feed to monitor
Ebay auctions for specific keywords or phrases.
When a new item that contains those keywords is added to Ebay you will
receive notification via your RSS feed!  http://www.freebiddingtools.com

Amazon Alerts - Generate a URL which you can use to automatically search
Amazon.com with your favorite RSS news reader. It will automatically
update you when new items meet your search criteria. I personally use it to look for
new books on topics I'm interested in, and I have the defaults set to do the same,
but you can adjust it to search any of Amazon's stores. You can also adjust the search
order and what kind of items you wish to search. http://www.oxus.net/amazon 

Internet Seer - InternetSeer remotely monitors your website to insure that
your site is available 24/7. If InternetSeer is unable to reach your site, we will send
you an immediate e-mail alert that your site is unreachable.
http://www.internetseer.com

NetNewsTracker - NetNews Tracker is a clipping service for Usenet
newsgroups.  Newstracker searches newsgroups twice daily for any specified words or
phrases and delivers alerts via e-mail. Newstracker can be used to monitor newsgroups
for names, company names, products, URLs, or any other topic of interest.

tools and applications http://www.monitoring-tools.net

Monitoring Software - Monitoring Software is a collection of downloadable

================JOKE OF THE DAY==================

**You might be a scientist...**

If the only jokes you receive are through e-mail.

If your wrist watch has more computing power than a 486DX-50.

If your idea of good interpersonal communication means getting the decimal
point in the right place.

If you have used coat hangers and duct tape for something other than
hanging coats and taping ducts.

If, at Christmas, it goes without saying that you will be the one to find
the burnt-out bulb in the string.

If your ideal evening consists of fast-forwarding through the latest
sci-fi movie looking for technical inaccuracies.

If you have "Dilbert" comics displayed anywhere in your work area.

If you carry on a one-hour debate over the expected results of a test that
actually takes five minutes to run.

If a team of you and your co-workers have set out to modify the antenna on
the radio in your work area for better reception.

If you ever burned down the gymnasium with your Science Fair project.

If you have never backed-up your hard drive.

If the salespeople at Circuit City can't answer any of your questions.

If you still own a slide rule and you know how to work it.

If you rotate your screen savers more frequently than your automobile
tires.

If your I.Q. number is bigger than your weight.

If the microphone or visual aids at a meeting don't work and you rush up
to the front to fix it.

If you can remember 7 computer passwords but not your anniversary.

If you have ever owned a calculator with no equal key and know what RPN
stands for.

If you can type 70 words a minute but can't read your own handwriting.

If you have more friends on the Internet than in real life.

If you think that when people around you yawn, it's because they didn't
get enough sleep.

If your three year old son asks why the sky is blue and you try to explain
atmospheric absorption theory.
