How To Avoid Advertising Scams

Bloggers Beware of Advertising Scams!!

I want to take the time to share an experience of mine to help and warn other bloggers and website owners. There are a lot of different reasons that one would start a blog or website, whether it’s for financial or personal motives. Once you start developing a decent amount of traffic you are bound to be contacted about advertising at some point in time. While usually this a good thing, there ARE people and scams out there that you need to be aware of.

I Want My Old Google Homepage Back

 

So, for those of you that use iGoogle as your homepage, I’m sure that you’ve noticed that it’s a little out of whack.

I’m sure by now that most of you take advantage of the wonderful convenience of buying airline tickets online.

About Ebay Feedback

Translating EBay Feedback

 

This past week I had a friend ask me about Ebay. Specifically, what should he be on the look out for when buying items on Ebay. He is aware that Internet scams are out there and wanted to make sure that he would be conducting a legitimate transaction and not getting ripped off.

What Is This Extension

I Hate Unknown File Extensions

 

One day you double click on an icon and you are greeted with a message that says “unknown file type or extension”. What now? Of course Windows gives you a dialog box where you can choose what program to open it with, but which one do you pick?

Nowadays there are some many different computer programs that produce so many different types of files. It’s hard to keep up with all of them and to make sure your computer can read all of them.

Craigslist Alternative

A Better Way to Craigslist

 

Craigslist has become a hot spot to sell, buy and barter stuff. I think it may be safe to assume that most of us have heard of it and have used it at one time or another. The downside to Craigslist is that the user interface is pretty lame. There are always better ways to do things and now there is a better way to do Craigslist. It’s called Craiglook.com and it doesn’t change anything except the user interface. It pulls in all its information from Craigslist and is kept up to date daily.

How To Get a Human Operator

Can I Just Talk to a Human Being Please?

 

I don’t know about you, but I hate it when I call a customer service number and reach an automated menu. Then I have to press so many buttons it’s like I’m entering in a security code for the NSA! The really annoying part about it is that most of the time I just need one simple question answered and by the time I get a human operator I’ve already wasted about 15 minutes. The only way I can speed up the process is if I have already called and I know what numbers to push in order to get a human operator. Then it’s not as painful.
