Barry Diller's IAC Revamps

As Seen On The Associated Press...

NEW YORK (AP) — IAC/InterActiveCorp, the Internet company controlled by media mogul Barry Diller, plans to relaunch its Web site Monday with new games, more prizes and plans to add social networking functions.

The site also now incorporates a search toolbar that links iWon users to the company's search engine. Diller has made growing Ask a priority and pledged to use the search engine as "the glue" to bring together IAC's myriad Internet businesses, which include LendingTree, Citysearch, Evite, Zwinktopia and others.

IWon's relaunch brings a relic of the dot-com era into the era of social networking, as the popularity of MySpace and Facebook have changed the way people use the Internet.

The site will eventually offer social networking features such as the ability to build personal profiles, chat and use Facebook widgets, iWon Vice President Tim Allen said.

After its 1999 launch, iWon was bought by AskJeeves, then based in Emeryville, Calif., which was taken up by IAC. It has since developed into a portal, trying to draw visitors with a wide-ranging set of features outside of online games, such as news, TV and movie listings and sports scores.

The new site design will focus primarily on casual games, a growing area that Allen says is now the third most popular reason people go online. The site will still offer its $1 million annual sweepstakes and will start to give away $10,000 a day during the week and $1,000 a day on weekends.

He said too few users were winning prizes on the old site, so the new version is designed to give away millions of dollars each year to thousands of users.

"It's like being in Vegas, only without the risk," he said.

Beginning Monday, visitors can play games such as mah jong, blackjack, poker and solitaire as well as instant win games such as Spin2Win. The new site has more than 70 games, up from 10, and there are plans for a total of more than 150 games by the end of the year. iWon estimates there are now 217 million people who play casual games online.

Since its 1999 launch, iWon has given away more than $70 million in cash and prizes, with its biggest draw the $1 million yearly sweepstakes.

IAC also recently relaunched its shopping Web site with an eye toward capitalizing on social networking. Its new tagline is "shopping gone social."

6 Effective Web Design Success Tips to Keep in Mind!

Here are Six Effective Web Design Success Tips for YOU to Keep in Mind when Designing a Search Engine and User Friendly Website:

1. Website Colors

Dark colors are generally a bad idea to use on a website as they appear gloomy. Try using light colors with a few strong colors to support it.

2. Load Speed
Keep your pages load time as fast as possible - people don't want to wait a whole minute just to load each page.

3. Site Navigation
Navigation. Keep your navigation accessible to your user where they can instantly have access to your site's content.

4. Consistency Throughout
Keep your layout and presentation consistent through your whole website. Always keep your navigation links at the same place otherwise it may confuse your visitors.

5. Website Width
Keep your website's layout at a fixed width of 780 pixels or use percentages for your site spanning. Everyone has different resolutions and people don't like having to scroll in all directions to view your website.

6. No Flash
Flash animations are nice, but make it difficult for people who don't have flash support and is harder for SE Spiders to crawl your site.

Hope these help!

Yahoo Invites Us Into Mash, Its New Social Network - As Seen on TechCrunch

A little more than two months after TechCrunch first reported rumors about Yahoo’s new social network Mosh, the company has given us a preview of a social network with a slightly different name: Mash.

The service includes features common to Facebook, MySpace, and My Yahoo. You can load a set of modules onto your profile page and move them around drag-and-drop style. The modules include Flickr RSS, Ego Boost, Common Friends, MyMoshLog2, Blog Module (RSS 2.0), Asteroids, Astrology, PimpMyPet, Hover, Kaleidescope, Guestbook, and My Stuff.

The modules gallery also states that “in the coming months we’re going to open up our module development platform to 3rd party developers,” which suggests that Mash will be following in Facebook’s footsteps at least to some extent (it will be interesting to see whether there will be canvas-like pages, too).

Highly Recommended Keyword Research Tools...

Here are Some Excellent Keyword Research Tools I Highly Recommend for ALL Marketers...

Overture Keyword Selector Tool:
This is a good first step to generate a basic keyword list of phrases containing the actual term you entered. Yahoo! has indicated that the search numbers are old and inaccurate so don’t count on exact numbers. However, it’s a useful tool to determine if a keyword is being searched for at all.

Good Keywords: (Free Download)
This free download for Windows users is similar to the Overture Keyword Selector Tool. It also has a feature that identifies common misspellings of words.

Google AdWords Keyword Tool:
Enter a search term or terms into the ‘Keyword Variations’ section, and you'll be shown other keywords that contain that term or are related to that term (synonyms). You can then sort keywords in terms of search volume popularity on Google. Google does not provide actual number of searches.

You can also use the ‘Site-Related Keywords’ section of the tool to identify the keywords of an existing web page by entering the page URL.

Wordtracker Free Keyword Suggestion Tool:
Wordtracker has a robust fee-based keyword tool that’s popular among the SEO crowd. In addition, this free tool is useful for building a list of synonyms. Enter a search term and you'll be shown 100 potential keywords related to (and including it), ranked by daily popularity. You can also sign up for the free trial of the paid version (recommended) to dig deeper into related keyword terms. This is a great way to identify secondary keyword phrases.

Microsoft AdCenter Labs Keyword Group Detection Tool:
This tool will also build a list of synonyms.

Trellian Free Search Term Suggestion Tool:
This tool provides synonyms as well and is very similar to Wordtracker’s tool above except that it ranks the keywords by annual searches as opposed to daily searches.

Bruce Clay’s SEO Tool Set Traffic Check:
Use this tool to produce an estimate of daily search activity for a specific keyword phrase across the major search engines broken down by Google, Yahoo and MSN. This one will provide actual numbers (but they are still estimates).

SEO Book Keyword Suggestion Tool:
Provides aggregated data from the free Overture, Google and Wordtracker tools listed above.

What is Social Media Marketing?

I Get This Question Everyday: What is Social Media Marketing?

Social Media Marketing (SMM) combines the goals of internet marketing with social media sites such as Digg, Flickr, MySpace, YouTube, Facebook and many others. The SMM goals will be different for every business or organization, however most will involve some form of viral marketing to build idea or brand awareness, increase visibility, and possibly sell a product or service.

Most online communities don’t welcome traditional direct or hard sell techniques so an effective SMM campaign will require more finesse to execute properly. SMM campaigns must be targeted to the community you want to reach with a message that appeals to them. Some common ways of achieving this are with authoritative information, entertainment, humor or controversy.

SMM is related to other online marketing such as Search Engine Optimization, Search Engine Marketing, Viral Marketing, Word of Mouth Marketing, and Social Media Optimization. Many believe Social Media Optimization (SMO) takes a passive role in establishing the framework for different social sites to connect themselves. Others feel SMO is taking the principles of SEO and applying them to social websites. SMM takes a more active planned role directing, influencing or suggesting community members create and connect the content.

B2B and B2C Marketers Can Learn From Each Other

Resource: by Brian Wool, The ClickZ Network

Anyone who's worked in marketing for a week knows there's a difference between the strategies and tactics for business-to-consumer (B2C) and those for business-to-business (B2B) online advertising. Yet in some ways, they're more alike than they are different.

From a 30,000-foot view, the objectives are identical: drive sales. Once you cut below the clouds, of course, the means to drive sales can be very different, primarily because the audiences are so different.

Look at the recent $345 million acquisition of by R.H. Donnelley. For over 100 years, R.H. Donnelley has been a formidable channel for the B2C marketing channel in both on-and offline markets. Why, then, the big investment in B2B?

Players join teams, assemble a roster of celebs and face off against other teams, with points given weekly based on celebrity coverage in the media (including TMZ). The site also offers star game cards, message boards and a weekly video webcast.

The term "fantasy sport" has always been a bit of a misnomer.
It's never been about pretending to be a football or baseball general manager; the closer parallel is gambling. By choosing an athlete for your team, you're hoping — betting — that he will perform well.

For a celebrity, though, performing "well" is a different ballgame.

Search Engines and Directories...

Search Engines and Directories – What is the difference?

A search engine is a system that enables users to search and retrieve information from the web. Usually, search engines use a software program, generally referred to as crawlers, to index web pages. Various search engines use complex algorithms to index and categorize the web pages.

Web directories contain a collection of web pages organized into categories and sub-categories. The main difference between directories and search engine is that search engines use software to automatically index the web pages; whereas in a directory, web sites are organized into categories by people.

Why should you submit in directories?

Directories can broadly be classified into "Free Directories" and "Paid Directories". There are many free directories available on the web, such as DMOZ, Yahoo!, World Wide Index, AbiLogic, Gimpsy, JoeAnt, etc. Usually the free directories take a long time to list a submitted web site. So be patient and constantly check these directories for your site. The paid directories list a submitted site usually within a day! If you go for the paid option, you should consider the following directories: Arielis, BOTW, BlueFind, Microsoft bCentral, and GoGuides.
