What is Spyware? Information for Newbies To Internet. – By: Fred Horstman December 20, 2013
What is Spyware Exactly?
Spyware is a type of software which gets onto your computer and is generally used to gather your personal information and then send advertisements to you, normally in the form of a pop-up ad. Spyware software can also change your computer configuration as well as many other potentially harmful things. Even though the term spyware may suggest that the software is simply monitoring action in a secretive way, the purpose of spyware usually goes well beyond this. The party responsible for creating and distributing this software is often profiting greatly through targeted advertising or selling off your personal information.
When this software is on a computer, it generally is hidden from the user. A study carried out by AOL and the National Cyber-Security Alliance showed that 60% of user’s computers were infected with spyware. Of all of these users, 90% of them were not aware that their computers were even infected. 90% of the users claimed that they had not granted permission for the spyware software to be installed. Since then, spyware has become increasingly sophisticated and is often impossible to detect on a user’s computer. Even worse, once detected, some spyware is impossible to remove.
Difference between Spyware and Adware
The terms spyware and adware are often used interchangeably. Both of these terms are used to describe software which can display advertisements. However, there is one major difference between these two: spyware gets onto the user’s computer through illicit means.
With adware, the user agrees to have the adware program installed in exchange for something else. For example, the program Eudora will allow users access to shareware for free but they must agree to receive advertisements. The key word here is “agree.” Adware will not attempt to mislead users and is offered in exchange for a service.
An example of adware includes the file sharing program Eudora. Rather than asking users to pay a registration fee, it asks them to agree to receive advertisements. On the other hand, Gator software is a type of spyware. When users visit certain websites, a software is installed on the users’ computer through some sort of deceptive manner. The company behind Gator as well as the website where the spyware was installed will both receive revenue.
I hope this has given you a basic idea about spyware. If you are interested in learning more make a search for “spyware” or look for more articles on spyware from this author.

How To Use Youtube For Newbies, Part 2 of 6 Getting Your Video Featured
By Fred Horstman
This article is the second of six to help newbies to Internet and Youtube by providing some quick start information about using Youtube to your advantage. From registration to uploading videos, you will find some answers to your most pressing questions in a simple and easy-to-follow way. These six articles do not go into great detail. They are designed to give newcomers to Youtube a basic knowledge of how to make and upload videos. More authoritive information can be found with a search and on Youtube itself.
Now that you are registered (Part 1), its time to start making movies. One of the first questions people have is about getting their videos featured. Everyone wants their turn in the spotlight. The real key to getting your videos featured is nothing more than creativity and good luck.
Visitors on YouTube rank the videos they like. So, like any review system, if people like what it is you have to show, they will rate your videos better, and your videos are more likely to be featured. YouTube.com provides a featured section for popular videos.
Some people are generous enough to want to offer feedback and improve any site they use, including YouTube. If this sounds like you, visit: http://www.youtube.com/testtube
Here officials of the site try their newest features and ask users to provide them with feedback so they can make their products and services more appealing. You will get the opportunity to “test-drive” new features or programs before YouTube launches them.
Make Your Video “Watch Worthy”
Apart from making a great video, there are many ways you can express yourself and get noticed on YouTube. Unfortunately, YouTube doesn’t let registered members upload personal avatars of themselves, small pictures of their liking.
You can however, create a brand simply by using your video cam. You can provide an intro clip, a short bio of yourself if you like. Otherwise, use your full creativity to help brand your name, your products or your services. You can even brand your message if you place enough time and energy in creating your videos!
Making Your First Video
Since YouTube is a relatively new concept, when we think about film production, there are still many people that are not certain how to go about making a great video.
First, you will need the proper supplies. You can make a video using something as simple as a digital camera, iPad, a traditional camcorder, or your cell phone (provided it is one that takes video pictures).
What you do is simply record a short, 10-minute clip of your video. Less than 6-minute clips are considered the best. Then download the video to your computer just as you would any digital pictures you would take. YouTube then allows you to upload your videos. If you want your clips to stand out, you can edit your videos before uploading them. There are many software programs readily available that allow you to edit videos easily, even if you are a beginner. One example is Windows Moviemaker.
Software applications are a big hit, in part because you can add subtitles to your video, you can incorporate special effects, and you can zoom in and out and take advantage of many other features. Since optimizing your video is essential if you want to attract attention on YouTube, let’s find out how to do that in Part 3 of 6. That section will help you learn how to create and maximize your videos’ potential so they captivate your audience.

What Is Affiliate Marketing? Information For Newbies In Internet Marketing
By Fred Horstman November 11, 2013
There are many different ways to make money online, but affiliate marketing consistently ranks as one of the most popular. Take a look at any internet marketing or online business forum and you’ll see countless numbers of people asking questions about affiliate marketing and how they can make money from it.
So what is affiliate marketing?
In short affiliate marketing is where you recommend other people’s products – and in return the owner of the product gives you a percentage of the sale price if one of the people you have referred actually buys the product or service.
Affiliate marketing is very attractive because it’s pretty easy to get started. There’s no need to create or source products of your own to sell – all you have to do is get people to click on your affiliate link and buy the product, and thus there’s little upfront investment cost and no time consuming products to create.
In reality, affiliate marketing is just one part of most people’s online business. If you want to be really successful online it’s generally accepted that you need to create (or source) and sell your own products, rather than JUST being an affiliate marketer. There are of course exceptions to this rule however and it is indeed possible to earn a very healthy income just from affiliate promotions. Most successful internet marketers make a hell of a lot of money from affiliate marketing!
Affiliate marketing works well for both sides of the party.
Product owners obviously need to get traffic to their websites in order to be able to sell products. And whilst a fair chunk of this traffic will be generated themselves, it makes sense for them to get other people to also promote their products and websites because it will result in lots of extra sales for little extra effort on their part. All they have to do is set up an affiliate program and give people a commission as an incentive – and then they can watch as their affiliates do the hard work and drive the traffic for them.
So, whilst it’s true that as an affiliate you’ll be doing most of the hard work to drive the traffic, remember that as an affiliate you didn’t have to do any of the hard work the product owner originally had to do in the first place.
But the above should give you some insight into why you should also sell your own products as well as being an affiliate.
So how much can you expect to earn as an affiliate?
Commissions vary widely from affiliate scheme to affiliate scheme. The most common idea is to pay the affiliate commission as a percentage of the total sale price. This can be as little as 1% and as much as 100%. Yes, some products pay you 100% commission – and you might be wondering why this is the case. The simple answer of course is that the product owner wants to make their affiliate scheme very attractive to potential affiliates so that he or she can persuade as many people as possible to promote it. By offering 100% commission on a low-priced front end product they will be able to get lots of affiliates on board and thus drive lots of people into their sales funnel. They’ll ultimately earn more money by making lots of sales of their back end products.
Typically it works like this. They have a low priced product for sale on the front end – let’s say it’s an eBook or short report priced at $4.95. They offer people 100% commission on this product, but then when people actually buy it they will also see other ‘back end’ products that are priced at a higher level. These will either pay a lower commission to affiliates (e.g. 40%) or even no commission at all.
The product owner knows that by offering 100% commission on the front end product they will ultimately make more money because their affiliates will drive much more traffic into their sales funnel than if they were, say, offering 50% on the front end product. They make no money upfront (and even lose money in some cases) but the extra income they make on the backend ultimately earns them more money.
Make sense? Great! You’ll find too that these low priced 100% commission products often give you instant commissions. So rather than making the sale and then waiting another month for the money to be paid into your account, the money from the sale is sent directly from the buyer and straight into your PayPal account, or whatever account you’re using.
So how do product owners know which affiliate sent them the traffic?
It’s actually quite simple. When you promote products as an affiliate you will be given a unique affiliate link. When people click on this link, it is tracked by cookies – and the affiliate commission is paid to you when someone buys something from that website after they have clicked on YOUR link.
It varies across different affiliate methods, but it is not uncommon for the cookies to last for 12 months. So someone can click on your affiliate link and then not buy anything initially – but if they return to the website 10 months later and actually buy something you would still be paid for the sale. However, not all programs do this so it’s wise to check this out before you promote.
Finding products to promote can be found by making a search. Two of the big, most reputable sites are Clickbank and Clicksure. There are thousands of products and hundreds of sites online that you can promote as an affiliate, so choosing between them is a crucial part of being an affiliate marketer. Also if you have a site or product that you like, you might be able to become an affiliate by looking at the bottom of the website and see if they offer affiliate programs.
Many affilate programs will check out your website before approving you as an affiliate. Others will sign you up with a click. Clickbank and Clicksure are not difficult. Amazon will exam your website. Start slow and easy and see what you like and can do. Think about low priced items and high ticket items. There are different strategies for each. Find what works for you. Good luck.

TIP # 5
If you are unskillful with the computer like I am, then at times it may feel like a big wave of destruction is headed your way. The information overload is bearing down on you and you don’t know how to do anything. Let me tell you what a friend my son’s age told me. I asked him, “Hey Jeff, why do you know so much about computers? He said, ” I don’t know very much. I always go to Google and put in HOW TO so and so and there are a bunch of people who can teach me.”
So what I am suggesting is that if you want to know how to do something, go to Google and search for “How to ______”. Google, Youtube, and all the other search engines have almost everything you can think of. Somebody can help.
