What is the best way to advertise on the internet?
I own a small service business that would like to get more leads.
The first step to market or advertise your business is to create a website or blog. If you want to save cost, you can design the web pages yourself and publish your site on free web hosting service providers. Most blog service providers don’t charge a fee, and it is easier to maintain than a website. Famous blogs providers are blogger.com and wordspress.com.
After building your website, submit your website or blog to the major search engines . To get high ranking in search engines, you must optimize your website for search engines, a process called search engine optimization, which means you have to include certain keywords in your web pages that are related to your business.
To actively promote your website for free, you can participate in online forums that are related to your business. You can also leave comments in blogs or websites. Besides, you can include a share button to let people share the URL of your website with their friends in social networking websites like facebook and digg. The code to include this button in your website is:
Besides, you can also exchange links with other websites.
Other than free marketing, you can also try paid advertising. Google’s offers pay-per-click advertising called AdWords, where you can place ads in Google’s huge network of publishers, you only pay when users click on your ads.

Is there any good company for on-line Data Entry Job without registration.?
I have a good typing speed. I have seen in the internet that many companies are offering on-line Data Entry Jobs without any Registration Fee. But I cannot ascertain which company is genuine so that I will not be cheated. Can anybody guide me in this matter.
The work from home jobs that aren’t scams actually require work on your part – and if you’re in need of money soon then you’re likely to be sorely disappointed in any of those as well. Most of the legit opportunities out there take time to build – so if someone makes an outrageous claim of income it probably isn’t true ( and those that are true sure didn’t make that kind of money when they first began ).
Time & effort required – but do your own research on what is best for you, don’t take the advice of myself and others as gospel from this type of forum.
I have other ideas that may help – one of them is an online opportunity but another is one that will require a little effort to market yourself – try some data entry for local businesses, many of them don’t have the time to do it in-house and will gladly pay someone else to do it. Professionals are a good place to start, lawyers, doctors, chiropractors, etc – they need their “in-house” folks doing other things rather than busy work.
Hope it helps!
Does anybody know of a forum where people who advertise on classified ads can exchange views?

How / if can I host a Public Web-forum like Yahooanswers?
I am a Substitute Teacher. I want to host an Internet Relay Chat using a format like Yahooanswers between the Substitutes and On Staff Teachers.
How or of can I host such a web-wide bulletin board that allows Internet-access from all web-servers?
And am I allowed to copy this Yahooanswers format?
That’s a lot to bite off, especially if you’re not experienced. For starters, IRC is a real time chat service, Yahoo Answers is more of a board format. The two are not similar. You might be able to find on-line places that will host this type of application. Typically the startup costs for doing this are much less than hosting it yourself.
To get started hosting this yourself you will need:
1. A domain name.
2. An ISP, preferably one that provides a dedicated IP address. If you can’t get a dedicated IP address you will need to use a service like dynip.com. You will need to point your domain name to the IP address your ISP gives you.
3. A router, some of them will work with services like dynip to keep your domain records current.
4. Software. I doubt you can just copy Yahoo Answers and there’s a lot of different packages out there. You need to start doing some research and find one that’s a good fit for what you want to do.
5. A computer with an OS that will run the software you select.
6. A way to reach interested users…a marketing plan if you will.
