Search Engine Results Page

by FactSnap - Free Business Listings & Article Submission on 02/11/2011 - 11:30 pm

Several years ago, I couldn't tell you the difference between SERP and SLURP. While one may seem obvious, the other stands for Search Engine Results Page.  Anytime we conduct a search, regardless of the search engine (Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask), the results are displayed in a SERP.  For those of us interested in search engine optimization, obtaining a high placement on the SERP is imperative.
 
Up until just this past year, it was thought that you absolutely had to be on page one of the SERP to be found by internet customers.  Lately, there's seems to have been a shift in browsing habits whereby those searching for information are now paying more attention to the site de ...

House Fire - Be Prepared!

by FactSnap - Free Business Listings & Article Submission on 02/11/2011 - 10:23 pm

 
Not too long ago, my wife and I experienced something that I hope none of you ever have to experience, a house fire.  At about 7pm on a Saturday night, my wife was in the backyard doing some gardening.  A neighbor from across the lake yelled to her and said he saw smoke coming from our house.  She ran to the garage to find an entire wall, from floor to ceiling, engulfed in flames.  My wife made it into the house where I was hanging a new light fixture in the kitchen (had nothing to do with the fire).  "Our house is on fire, our house is on fire", my wife yelled as she ran back out of the house with me a short distance behind.  Turning as I ente ...

Start a Crime Scene Cleanup Business

by FactSnap - Free Business Listings & Article Submission on 02/11/2011 - 10:10 pm

Crime scene cleanup is a business that few have heard of.  Even fewer know that these companies charge between $125 to $400 per hour for their services.  And, nearly all of the work is paid for by insurance companies!
 
Crime scene cleanup is a niche market within the janitorial or cleaning industry. Although sometimes referred to as “CTS Decon” (crime and trauma scene decontamination) it’s more widely referred to as “Crime Scene Cleanup”.   For the past twenty years, companies involved with the crime scene cleanup industry have been helping families who have been traumatized by the loss of a loved one or a dear friend.

Search Engine Optimization Tips

by FactSnap - Free Business Listings & Article Submission on 02/10/2011 - 01:43 pm

I own and manage several business directories, as well as a dozen other websites associated with a wide range of industries.  As I work with my clients, especially those listed with my business directories, I realize how little most people know about search engine optimization.  For example, each of my business directories allow for the client to enter 4000 characters of text.  Each listing is also afforded the opportunity to associate keywords and META descriptions with their listings, upload banners, pictures, sales literature, address and phone number info, website URLs, email addresses, etc.  To my surprise, even after both email and verbal instructions, very few ...

Are You Really Unemployed?

by FactSnap - Free Business Listings & Article Submission on 02/10/2011 - 01:36 pm

Roughly 14.8 million people are currently unemployed in the United States . . . at least that's what the statistics say.  How many jobs vacancies are there?  Has anyone ever sat down with a calculator to see how many people could be employed vs. unemployed if they'd just get off their asses and work (this does not apply to those who are legitimately unemployed)? 

I own several businesses.  On a daily basis, I have three or four openings.  Granted they aren't high paying positions, however well above minimum wage.  I spend hundreds of dollars a week in advertising and can't get enough people to respond to fill the vacancies I have.  Those who d ...

Residual Income

by FactSnap - Free Business Listings & Article Submission on 02/10/2011 - 01:31 pm

What if you could make money while you sleep?  Or how about a nice little paycheck every day you're on vacation, and you don't have to do a thing for it!  We're not talking about sick time or vacation pay you have worked so hard for at your full-time job.  What I mean is a completely new source of income, commonly referred to as passive income or residual income.  Although the legal definition of these two types of income vary slightly, both refer to income that you receive on a regular basis for work you've done once.  For example, an author writes a book and receives royalties for years after the book is published.  Have you ever thought of all the different w ...

Truth About Home Business Ideas

by FactSnap - Free Business Listings & Article Submission on 02/10/2011 - 01:18 pm

Most of us dream of a business that allows us to work from the comforts of home.  We buy books on Home Business Ideas, we search Google for Home Business Ideas and we dream about the perfect business that will allow us to have the money and freedom we think we deserve.  For many of us, the thought of a home based business is the pinnacle of success.  It would allow us to wake up whenever we want, work in our PJ's, spend more time with our family and save on the cost of fuel and food. More importantly though, our dream home based business would allow us to escape the "Rat Race" that we face everyday.  No longer would we have to sit in rush hour traffic or fight t ...
