Google Tip Check For Broken Links

broken link

There are heaps of Google tips floating around the web a very importan Google tip would have to be that Google hates broken links. A broken link is an url on your blog that doesn’t go anywhere. It used to, when you first wrote the post, unless you mistyped something, but for some reason it now goes to a  404 Not Found. Imagine if you were lost whilst driving around and stopped to ask for directions only to find that the moron sent you on a wild goose chase costing you valuable time. You have to admit, that can be quite frustrating.

Dropbox And Why You Should Have One

Dropbox Benefits

You’re probably wondering what a Dropbox is. A Dropbox is a free service that lets lets you store your precious photos, docs, and videos online. More than that it even allows you to share them easily with friends, family and work associates. With a Dropbox you never have to email a file to yourself again. These are just some of the many benefits you get from having a Dropbox  and I recommend everyone to get one. And I’m not doing it just because by doing so I get an extra 500 MB of space for every person I sign up! Up to 16 GB worth. I should also mention that every person who signs up under me also gets a 500 MB of bonus space!

What You Get When You Join Dropbox

I’ve probably missed out the most important feature about having a Dropbox. Once you dropboxhave uploaded a file into your Dropbox it automatically save to all your computers and phones. Before having a Dropbox it used to be such a pain retrieving a photo I’ve taken with my HTC phone so I could use it in a post. Now all I do is access my Dropbox via the WordPress Dashboard. I no longer have to curse when writing a post on my MacBook air because the image I’m looking for is on my PC. Now I just make sure I save the image to my Dropbox and it is instantly available to my MacBook air, and my Phone. This means I can now show mates stuff no matter where I am.

At the moment I’ve got over 5 GB of free space but I’m pretty sure I only started with 2 GB when I first joined. If you join by clicking a link on this site you get an extra 500 MB giving you 2.5 GB of space. Once you’ve joined you can refer your friends earning 500 MB with each referral up to a nice 16 GB of space. You can even earn extra space immediately after joining without getting one referral. It’s so easy to do too.

The first thing you do upon joining is to click the “Getting Started” tab and complete the following seven steps.

  1. Take the Dropbox Tour
  2. Install Dropbox on Your Computer
  3. Put Files in your Dropbox Folder
  4. Install Dropbox on Other Computers You Use
  5. Share a Folder with Friends or Colleagues
  6. Invite Some Friends to Join Dropbox
  7. Install Dropbox on Your Mobile Device

I’ve completed all but the sixth one and I now have 5.75 GB of space. I don’t actually recall how much you get from completing each step but whatever it is it all adds up. You can even earn space by connecting it to Twitter, FaceBook and by following Dropbox. 125 MB for each action.

I could go on and on but I’m sure I’ve given you enough to entice you to  join. Did I mention it was free?  :drunk_tb:

Success How Many Factors Lead To Success

Success Secrets?

I read a post today from my mate Mitch titled The Secret To Success Is….. in which he posted a great video naming one specific thing that you need to be successful. While I agree with him that the reason he named can be very important I don’t believe it to be the sole factor. I don’t believe that any one factor can lead to success. Nope, in my humble opinion a person’s success is usually attributed to several factors. Over the weekend I went to the Australian Grand Prix and whilst I wanted Alonso to win in his Ferrari the person who actually achieved success was Kimi Raikkonen in his Lotus. While his successful win can be attributed to a team effort a lot of it due to the Kimi’s personal attributes. Had someone else been driving the car it could well have been a different result.
