Here are my top tips to getting free traffic to your blog or website really fast. this is a very efficient way of dong it and it costs nothing. yes it’s free.

1.Post to your website consistently

if you post 3-4 times a day on your blog/website you will start seeing more traffic. as you will have lots more tags on your stuff and Google will see that it is a blog/website that is posting everyday and will more likely put you further up the page.
2. Tag everything!

the more you tag things the easier it is to get to it. if you were talking about cheese your tags would be along the lines of cheese,French cheese,German cheese,strongest cheese. see what i mean?

3. ping your site and get back links

if you ping your site to places like pingoat or feed shark  and pingmyblog.com and get back links your site will look more popular than it actually is and Google will give it a higher page ranking. if you type in these names to Google they will be there. Also if you type in free back links you will find some websites.

4. content is king!

if your content is meaning less or is not interesting or hard to read people won’t look at it. but if it is fun to read or something interesting there will be a lot more views to your blog/website.

5. don’t use traffic exchanges

things like traffic G and traffic swarm don’t give you proper views  they wont actually look at your stuff. i know because i have tried.

6. comment on other blogs

if you comment on other blog DON’T spam. just have a read of there blog and give them a constructive comment. if they like your comment they will click on your link and check out your blog.

7. use stumble upon

now stumble upon is not a traffic exchange. it is a place were people click the button stumble and look at peoples sites randomly. post your links up there and let people do their work. you can also use things like digg.

8. Join a blogging forum or network

If you join a blogging forum or network don’t spam just talk about what is on there and leave your website/blog address in your signature.

9. use social networking sites

things like twitter or Facebook or Hotmail you can leave messages to everyone with your newest posts from your blog/website.

that’s it. follow these tips and you will be on your way.

Police hunting for missing April Jones today revealed they arrested suspect Mark Bridger on suspicion of murder.

The five-year-old went missing from the mid Wales market town of Machynlleth on Monday, with the search for her now into a fifth day.

Officers today said 46-year-old Bridger, who was arrested on Tuesday, is being questioned on suspicion of murder.
Welsh Police have until 5pm on Friday to either charge or release Bridger.

The revelation will come as a devastating blow to the hundreds of volunteers who joined the search for April this week in the hope of finding her alive.
While Dyfed-Powys Police and expert search teams have yet to find a body, after more than 220 officers were tasked with finding April since she vanished at 7pm on Monday.

The further details surrounding Bridger’s arrest were revealed by police to the press at 10.30am on Friday.

As the search for April turned from a child abduction to a murder investigation, police again asked volunteers to leave the search for the five-year-old to professionals.

The grim news for the small Welsh town came soon after two women claimed they saw a man carrying a bin bag to a river the day after April went missing.
The two women who made the sighting are said to have been interviewed by police, who insist they are ‘looking into all leads’.

Carwen Sheen, 36, told the Daily Mirror: “I’ve told the police what I saw, it’s up to them now.”
Police said the ‘dynamics of the search’ have now changed following the ‘significant development’ in their investigation.

Police said Mark Bridger, 46, is being questioned on suspicion of murder (PA)Officers praised the public for the support and participation, but said it is ‘no longer appropriate’ for untrained members of the public to continue the search.

Describing the questioning of Mark Bridger, Det Supt Reg Bevan, of Dyfed-Powys Police, said: “He remains in custody at Aberystwyth Police Station where he continues to be questioned.
“The arrest does not detract from our efforts to find April and we remain committed to finding her.

“Her family has been informed of this development and as you would expect they continue to be supported by a family liaison officer.

“While this is a significant development in the investigation, I once again appeal to the public for information which may help us find April.

“We are looking to trace the movements of Mark Bridger between 6.30pm on Monday and 3.30pm on Tuesday and any sightings of him between these times.
“We also need information regarding the movements of the blue Land Rover Discovery registration L503 MEP between these times.”

this is a sad story as this girl is only 5 years old. many people die everyday so you should value your life.

Speaking at a news conference, Superintendent Ian John said officers from all 44 forces across the UK are filtering through the information for clues to the little girl’s disappearance.

He also spoke about the difficulties of searching through the rugged terrain surrounding April’s home town of Machynlleth in mid Wales.

“Police searches have continued in and around Machynlleth and will continue tonight, regardless of the weather,” he added.

“We are having to search through difficult terrain in urban and rural environments, in demanding weather conditions we have experienced. The forecast for tonight is not good but we will continue this.”

Earlier, April’s sister made an emotional appeal for her safe return, saying: “I just want our beautiful princess home now. It’s been too long.”

Jasmine, 16, begged for her sister to come home as the massive police hunt involving helicopters, mountain rescue teams, coastguard vessels, and marine units continued.

She wrote on her Facebook page: “Knowing someone knows something but won’t say it makes me feel even worse.”

It has also been revealed that April’s father Paul has a degenerative eye disease and is unable to take part in the searches.

Machynlleth Town Council have today set up an appeal fund for April and her family.

Councillor Mike Williams told Sky News: “We’ve set up the fund as a result of all the requests we’ve had – not just from the town but all across the UK.”

Police are searching the three-bedroom cottage, outbuildings, and garden of suspect Mark Bridger, in the hamlet of Ceinws.

They are also launching a major search of the nearby Dyfi river, involving dog handlers.

Activity at Mr Bridger’s white farmhouse intensified as officers were given until 5pm tomorrow to question the 46-year-old. Officers have also searched a guesthouse where Mr Bridger is understood to have worked recently.

April’s family have launched a pink ribbon campaign to support the hunt and revealed that the little girl was suffering from cerebral palsy.

She has been missing since around 7pm on Monday when she vanished while playing with friends near her home on the Bryn-y-Gog estate.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw Mr Bridger or his blue Land Rover Discovery, registration number L503 MEP, in the hours between April’s disappearance and his arrest at 3.30pm on Tuesday.

Estate agents J H Jones in Machynlleth say his farmhouse, called Mount Pleasant, was sold by them last year. It was on the market for £170,000.

Neighbour Vivian Williams Jones, 68, said it had been empty for several years before Mr Bridger rented it out about a month ago.

“It was eventually sold to someone from London who bought it as a holiday home and never came down here,” he told Wales Online.

“I saw him about a month ago and he said that it was just too far for him and he was giving it the once-over before renting it out. I can’t say I’d ever seen him (Mr Bridger), apart from moving about inside.”

Meanwhile, people are being urged to fix a pink ribbon to their front doors or gates, or to a wear a pink ribbon, in support of the search. The five-year-old’s godmother Mair Raftree, 41, said pink was April’s favourite colour.

Prime Minister David Cameron joined police in urging anyone with information about the whereabouts of the “lovely girl” to speak to officers.

Anyone with information relating to the case is asked to call Child Rescue Alert Line on 0300 2000 333.

One in seven people on the planet now use Facebook to stay in touch, according to the social networking giant’s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The eight-year-old company added 200 million new users in the last year, bringing its total number of “friends” to a billion across the world.

Mr Zuckerberg announced the milestone in an interview with NBC on Thursday, describing the development as “an amazing honour”.

“To be able to come into work every day and build things that help a billion people stay connected with the people they care about every month, that’s just unbelievable,” the 28-year-old tech guru said.

But he also admitted Facebook had been in a “tough cycle” since the company’s initial public offering in May. Shares in the social networking site on the Nasdaq stock exchange have lost around 50% since.

When the company went public, 421 million shares were issued at $38 (£24.20) each, rising as high as $45 (£28.66) each after trading began. But the stock closed on its first day barely above its initial public offering price of $38 and has been below that level since.

Shares were trading slightly up just after the open on Thursday, at $21.99 (£13.65).

“Things go in cycles. We’re obviously in a tough cycle now and that doesn’t help morale. But at the same time, you know, people here are focused on the things that they’re building,” said Mr Zuckerberg of his staff.

“I mean, you get to build things here that touch a billion people, which is just not something that you can say at almost anywhere else, so I think that’s really the thing that motivates people.”

Mr Zuckerberg, who founded Facebook in 2004 while at Harvard University, controls more than half of the voting stock. But the drop in the company’s value has raised questions about his abilities as a chief executive.

“I take this responsibility that I have really seriously and I really think Facebook needs to be focused on building the best experiences for people around the world, right? And we have this philosophy that building the products and services and building the business go hand in hand,” he told NBC.

Mr Zuckerberg said Facebook would be targeting new and current users on mobile devices, such as smartphones, to grow the site’s customer base and enhance its ability to make money.

wow that’s a lot if you think there are3 7.5 billion people in the world. what do you think?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – After several difficult weeks, Republican Mitt Romney found his footing on Wednesday night in a strong debate performance against Democratic President Barack Obama. The question is whether it is too late to make a difference.

Romney could see a burst of fundraising, new interest from undecided voters and a wave of support from his fellow Republicans after he appeared to have emerged as a clear victor in his first face-to-face confrontation with Obama. Romney likely will benefit from favourable news coverage as well.

Still, with the November 6 election little more than a month away, Romney is running out of time to seize the lead.

Voting has begun in some form or another in 35 states, and 6 percent of those have already cast their ballots, according to a Reuters/IPSOS poll released on Wednesday.

And while debates are among the most memorable events of any presidential campaign, there is little evidence that they can change the outcome of an election.

Obama may have underwhelmed, but he avoided the sort of disastrous performance that can cause backers to reassess their support.

“Nobody is going to switch sides on the basis of this debate,” said Samuel Popkin, a political science professor at the University of California at San Diego.

Standing on the same stage as the president for the first time, Romney took full advantage of the opportunity to convince voters that he is up to the task of leading the nation.

Speaking in crisp, bullet-pointed paragraphs, Romney came armed with a quiver of “zingers” built for a long afterlife on cable television and YouTube.

“You’re entitled to your own house and your own airplane, but not your own facts,” Romney told Obama at one point.

Obama, by contrast, looked unhappy to be on stage.

                             [Read more: All the latest on the race to the White House]

His answers were meandering and professorial, laden with facts but short on vision. He argued that Romney’s tax and budget plans don’t add up, but he steered clear of other lines of attack that have proven effective.

“Romney won. The real surprise is that he won so clearly,” said Paul Sracic, a political science professor at Youngstown State University.

Voters seemed to agree.

Some 67 percent of those surveyed by CNN in a “flash poll” after the debate declared Romney the winner. Obama’s re-election prospects on Intrade, an online prediction market, fell from 74 percent to 66 percent.

Obama maintains an advantage in opinion polls. On Wednesday, he led Romney by 47 percent to 41 percent in the daily Reuters/IPSOS tracking poll, a margin that has held fairly steady since the middle of September.

Other polls have shown the race to be a little closer. Obama holds clear leads in most of the politically divided states that are likely to decide the election.

DEBATES HAVEN’T HAD MUCH OF AN IMPACT

Many pollsters expect Obama’s margin to shrink somewhat over the coming month, but debates rarely have much of an impact.

Opinion polls have shifted by an average of less than 1 percent in the wake of the 16 presidential debates that have taken place since 1988, according to research by Tom Holbrook, a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee.

The biggest shift came in 2004, when Democratic challenger John Kerry gained 2.3 percent points on Republican President George W. Bush. Bush won the election.

People who have made up their minds to vote against Romney won’t change their minds no matter how presidential he looks in debates, said Popkin, author of “The Candidate: What it Takes to Win – And Hold – the White House.”

“If you think he’s a selfish person who’s out for the rich, you can still think he’s a confident, comfortable, genial executive who fires you with a smile,” he said.

And some voters may have been actually focusing on the words the two candidates said, rather than the manner in which they said them.

While Romney played down his conservative positions in an effort to reach out to centrist voters, Obama successfully emphasized themes like education and deficit reduction that appeal to this group, several observers said. His new emphasis on expanding opportunity, rather than ensuring fairness, also could help among the more ideologically moderate voters who have yet to make up their minds.

“Often voters are looking more for substance than for style,” said Dotty Lynch, a professor of communication at American University.

(Reuters) – Iran already has enough low-enriched uranium for several atomic bombs if refined to a high degree but it may still be a few years away from being able to build a nuclear-armed missile if it decided to go down that path.

Israel’s warning last week that Iran will be on the brink of developing a nuclear weapon by mid-2013 seemed to refer to when it could have a sufficient stock of higher-grade uranium to make a quick dash to produce a bomb’s worth of weapon-grade material.

But, analysts say, Tehran would need time also for the technologically complicated task of fashioning highly refined uranium gas into a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a missile – if it opts for such weapons of mass destruction.

“If they haven’t worked out all the steps with dummy materials beforehand they will have a lot to do,” said a Vienna-based diplomat who is not from one of the six world powers involved in diplomacy over Iran’s disputed nuclear activity.

“Maybe they have all of the equipment ready. Maybe they have played with surrogate materials. I don’t think anyone knows.”

Experts stress that timeline estimates are fraught with uncertainty as it is unclear how advanced the Islamic Republic may be in its suspected nuclear bomb research.

“I still think that we are talking about several years … before Iran could develop a nuclear weapon and certainly before they could have a deliverable nuclear weapon,” said Shannon Kile, head of the Nuclear Weapons Project of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, a think-tank.

Iran rejects suspicions of a covert quest for atomic bomb capability. But its refusal to curb nuclear work with both civilian and military applications, and its lack of openness with U.N. inspectors, have drawn tough Western sanctions.

A high-level group of U.S. security experts – including former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski and former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage – estimated that Iran would need between one and four months to produce enough weapons-grade uranium for a single nuclear device.

“Additional time – up to two years, according to conservative estimates – would be required for Iran to build a nuclear warhead that would be reliably deliverable by a missile,” they said in a report published last month.

Mark Fitzpatrick, of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) think-tank, also said Iran would need at least two years for assembling a nuclear-tipped missile.

Senior researcher Greg Jones of the U.S.-based Nonproliferation Policy Education Center put forward a much quicker breakout scenario for any bomb bid and suggested a truck rather than a missile could be used for delivery to target.

Iran could refine uranium for a nuclear weapon in 10 weeks and produce the required non-nuclear components in six months or less, he said, adding this could be done simultaneously.

NO BREAKOUT WITH JUST ONE BOMB?

But the IISS argued in a report last year that the weaponisation time must be added to that required to produce the fissile material to calculate when a usable bomb could be made.

Making the actual weapon entails converting uranium gas to metal, designing a nuclear triggering device and the production and fitting of spherical explosive lenses, it said.

The United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) last year published a report with a trove of intelligence indicating past, and some possibly continuing, research activities in Iran that could be relevant for nuclear weapons.

They included suspected high explosive experiments and possible work on designing a device to produce a burst of neutrons for setting off a fission chain reaction.

“The information indicates that prior to the end of 2003 the activities took place under a structured program; that some continued after 2003; and that some may still be ongoing,” the IAEA said in its latest report on Iran, issued in late August.

Washington still believes that Iran is not on the verge of having a nuclear bomb and that it has not made a decision to pursue one, U.S. officials said in August.

Israel, believed to have the Middle East’s only nuclear arsenal, has threatened military action to stop Iran obtaining such weaponry, although Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week signaled any attack was not on the cards this year.

In a speech at the annual United Nations General Assembly on Thursday, Netanyahu drew a “red line” on a cartoon bomb just below a label in which Iran was 90 percent along the path to having sufficient weapons-grade material.

Experts put that at the point when Iran has amassed enough uranium, purified to a fissile level of 20 percent, that could quickly be enriched further and be used to produce a bomb.

Iran has produced more than 6.8 tonnes of uranium refined up to 5 percent since 2007, an amount experts say could be used for about five nuclear weapons if processed much further.

Worryingly for the West and Israel, some of that material has been refined to 20 percent, representing most of the effort involved in reaching potential bomb material.

According to the latest IAEA report, Iran has produced about 190 kg of this higher-grade uranium, about half of which has been earmarked for conversion into research reactor fuel, leaving a stockpile in August of just over 90 kg.

Traditionally, about 250 kg is estimated to be needed for a bomb, but some believe less would do.

“It is widely known that even a first device can be made with much less,” the diplomat in Vienna said. But, “no one breaks out to make one warhead. Estimates vary but most think three to five warheads is a minimum to be a real nuclear power.”

An Israeli official briefed on the Netanyahu government’s Iran strategy told Reuters: “Once Iran gets its first device, no matter how rudimentary, it’s a nuclear power and a nuclear menace. With that said, we have always noted that, from this threshold, it would take Iran another two years or so to make a deployable warhead.”

Sanctions against Iran are making their impact, on the innocent working-class people of Iran–and the destruction of the currency may be getting a boost from the CIA.

International trade is dying and the currency is in free fall. It fell 17% this morning. The rial has lost more than 80 percent of its value since the start of the year.

I am also hearing that the CIA may be pumping newly (CIA printed) rial into the country in an effort to destabilize the country through hyper-inflation. The Fed may think money printing boosts an economy, but the CIA knows what it really does.

Ordinary Iranians are increasingly struggling with the resulting inflation, which was officially put at 23 percent even before the latest plunge of the rial.

“Prices are rising every day and it just doesn’t stop,” said Khosro, a retiree who gave only his first name. He was forced to work as a taxi driver to boost his diminishing pension, he said.

Even locally made products were becoming more costly in Iran’s supermarkets.
“The price of my toothpaste, a foreign brand, has tripled in just a few months. Now, I’m buying an Iranian one, but it has also nearly doubled in price,” said Maryam, a young shopper.
