Internet Marketing “Slaps”

The old adage “don’t put your eggs all in one basket” applies to many areas of life, and Internet Marketing is no exception.

Internet Marketers (IMers) have a variety of potential income streams, and a variety of SEO strategies available to them. If an IMer is relying too heavily on just one strategy or income source, small changes that are outside of their control can have devastating consequences.

The term “slap” is used when a third-party makes a change in something that has a negative impact on an IMer. For example, there is the phenomenon known as the “Google slap”.

Years ago there was a rush of IMers using a strategy involving an income stream from Google’s ad program. The program is called AdSense, and the strategy was called “arbitrage”. The strategy essentially worked by buying pay-per-click advertising for keywords that were cheap, and point them to the IMer’s site, which was covered up with ads for similar, related keywords that paid big money per click.

The folks at Google are pretty smart. They saw what was going on, and realized that they were losing money (and advertisers were unhappy) because low-quality traffic was being “tricked” into high cost ads. So, Google made several changes. They changed the way keywords were bid to make it tougher to grab “cheap” keywords. And they took the quality of the landing page into account. The upshot was that people who relied on this tactic saw their income stream dry up quickly.

eBay marketers also received a huge slap. When eBay changed their policy about delivering digital products, some companies (who had previously sold millions of dollars of product per year) went out of business altogether. eBay decided that the headache of dealing with duplicate/copyrighted e-books was too much. So, they shut down digital delivery. Folks with honest digital businesses (like selling website templates), who relied entirely upon eBay for their marketing and product delivery, had a really hard time. Oh…and eBay only gave about 2 weeks notice of the change.

There are other examples, from Scribd, to “nofollow” tags, where strategies or income streams that once worked well have disappeared. A smart Internet Marketer knows that one has to diversify, both strategies and income sources. There are too many factors that are outside of the IMer’s control which can have huge impact on their business, so they must be smart about putting their eggs in many baskets.

History of the Computer

Answering the question of who invented the computer is nearly impossible to do. Rather than emerging in one single moment of history, the development of computer technology has happened over time. The emergence of the computer as a necessary tool in today’s society has taken place over many years with contributions made by a variety of different people.

The first counting device was known as abacus and was used by the Babylonians around 300 B.C. The first printing press was completed in approximately 1440. Its clear that modern advances in technology have been happening for some time. However, the electronic computer that we know today has evolved from a combination of electronic development, savvy programming and other influences.

The first programmable and electrical binary machine was known to be created by German Konrad Zuse somewhere around 1937. The first digital computer was invented in the early 1940s at what is now Iowa State University.

To give some relevance in terms of modern computer companies today, Dell introduced its first computer known as the Turbo PC in 1985. Hewlett Packard’s first computer was released in 1966. To the first computer by Apple was designed by Steve Wozniak in 1976.

Today, computers are all around us. From large computers which help us fly planes to small devices we carry in our pocket, we need computers to transmit and communicate with each other and obtain vital information. We rely on them day in and day out. Today we use computers to do our mobile banking and stabilize us in the emergency room. Each day, advances are being made in the computer world. What we see today will be completely obsolete in the next few years. Electrical devices are becoming more advanced and better materials are being used to make them.

Discover Jupiter Through a Telescope in 2012

Seeing Jupiter through a telescope for the first time is an experience never to be forgotten. That bright point of light that gleams down from the sky above resolves, as if by magic, into a gloriously large disc of light. Dark belts and brighter zones smear across the view. No need to adjust your telescope’s eyepiece! What you’re seeing is Jupiter for real – its turbulent atmosphere in full dynamic motion.

But viewing Jupiter through a telescope is not just about a momentary glance. Let your eye linger longer at your telescope’s eyepiece. When you do you’ll start to pick out subtle details – rifts in the dark bands; dark spots rolling out over the chaotic upper cloudscape, and thinner bands that break and reform across the disc. It’s a maze of ambiguous lines and swirls so reminiscent of a science experiment involving coloured fluids mixing together in mesmerizing patterns.

In fact what you’re seeing on Jupiter through a telescope is this type of ‘experiment’ played out on a massive scale. The zonal appearance of Jupiter’s surface is a gaseous mix of chemical clouds driven along by high velocity winds in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere. The darker bands equate to warmer lower zones in the atmosphere, while the lighter zones are colder higher cloud levels composed of ammonia crystals.

At the boundary of each belt and zone is extreme wind shear – a potent force in the creation of swirling storms like the Great Red Spot (GRS).

The Great Red Spot

More than twice as large as the Earth, Jupiter’s GRS is the largest storm system known. It is also the oldest. Astronomers think that the storm has persisted for more than 300 years.

A small telescope will easily show the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. But you have to know when to look. Jupiter rotates once every 9 hours and 55 minutes. You’ll therefore only have a couple of hours’ opportunity to view the famous storm on each rotation. If that happens to be in daylight or at a time when Jupiter isn’t above the horizon then you won’t get to see it.

Thankfully, as we head into autumn 2012 Jupiter rises earlier and earlier so there’s plenty of opportunity to see the GRS. At the beginning of September the king of the solar system is up above the local horizon for mid northern latitudes by midnight, making it easily observable with a telescope by 1.30am. Come the start of October Jupiter is rising by 9.30pm local time, and observable through a telescope by about 11pm.

Why am I stating a difference between rise time and observable time through a telescope? The simple answer is atmospheric turbulence.

When you look at an object in the night sky when it’s low down on the horizon you’re actually looking at it through a thick slice of Earth’s atmosphere. This dims the view, and being low down to the horizon your view can suffer a lot from turbulent air currents.

Waiting 1-2 hours after Jupiter has risen to view it through a telescope will give it enough time to rise higher into the sky. The further you are away from the horizon the smaller the slice of Earth’s atmosphere that you’re looking through, and so the steadier and clearer your view should be.

It’s all in the detail

If you don’t already own a telescope, the best way to see Jupiter is to go to an observing evening run by your local astronomy society this autumn, or hire a telescope to view it yourself.

If you opt to hire a telescope an 8″ dobsonian telescope will work well. It’s a manageable size for a beginner and portable enough to be carried to a good location in your garden, backyard or other observing spot. With an 8″ dobsonian telescope the mirror is large enough to collect a good amount of light to start revealing some of the more intricate details in Jupiter’s cloud belts.

Make sure your hire telescope comes with a medium or high power eyepiece combination too. A quality eyepiece in the 10mm to 5mm range will give you high enough magnification to yield a good amount of detail.

Jupiter will be visible in our late evening skies throughout the autumn. By the time winter rolls around Jupiter will be rising shortly after sunset, making it a spectacular object to follow with a telescope all night.
