20 Ways To Ensure Your Children Safety Online


Internet presence can be refreshing, entertaining and educative but the consequences of improper use can be damaging. A survey showed that 15 percent of social network users had posted their current location or travel plans, 34 percent had posted their  full birth date and 21 percent of those that have children had posted those children's names and photos online, thus taken risks that can lead to burglaries, identity theft and stalking among others.

Though, everybody is at risk but research show that children are more vulnerable than adults because of their lack of experience. In this article we shall look at ways through which parents can protect their children online.

1.Installation of Internet control software. This software is use to block the visit of unwanted sites on your personal computer or server. Parents can install what is called parental control software on their children computer to prevent accessibility to corrupt/adult sites such as pornography site e.t.c

2.You can enlighten your family on the danger pose by  misuse of the Internet. Give them safety rules and how you as a parent want them to operate on the Internet.

3.Put family computer in a place that will be easily accessible by every member of the family and in such a way that the screen is visible to anyone around that vicinity.



4.There is nothing bad in knowing what your children is doing online. You can approach them when they are in front of the computer to know what they are doing. You can share your opinion on what they are doing or ask questions.

 5.Parents can develop the idea of surfing together with their children to know how well they are doing online.

6.Parents can click on the history button on the web to know the site that have been visited by their children.

7.Parents should also find time to know or learn more about Internet and how things work on the Internet.

8.They can also join some of these social networking sites to know how things are done on these media network.

9.Make some rules about the amount of time your children should be spending on the Internet. Let them know that time is money. Let them see the need to spend their time on other important aspect of their life like reading, exercise, socialize with friends, staying in touch with family members e.t.c
Watch out if your child or children spend too much time online and whether this have affected the time spend with friends and family and maybe they are sometimes nervous and turn off the computer quickly or switch to another page when you enter the room. These are red alerts and can mean that your child is doing something improper online.

10.Enlighten your children to use the privacy settings on their social networking sites and that they should restrict access to photos and status updates to only those they know and trust.

11.Tell your children to use phone as a medium of communication if they want to share something secret rather than through the Internet via chat, e-mail or social media

12.Teach your children not to disclose private information such as name, home address, telephone number, e-mail address, SSN and date of birth as exposing these informations can put them in danger and risk.

13.Part of your duty as a parent is to use your experience to help your children. Let them know that Internet presence is about reputation. Teenagers need to know that with one post or photo updates their reputation can be spoiled and this can have unthinkable consequences.

14.Children need to be careful with what they post online as this will represent their value and worth as individual.

15.It is important for parent to advice their children to be selective on whom they accept as friends on social network.

Some useful friendly policy you can use on social media sites are:

16.Only accept people that you don't just recognized but really know

17.Ignore friend request from someone you don't know. Never add strangers.

18.Only add friend you have known for a long time and with good reputation and high moral standard.

19.Don't hesitate to delete friends that are posting something you think is improper.

20..Lastly, my own advice for everybody including both children and parents is that they should always sign out from any site on the Internet including e-mails and social networking sites.

About Search Engines


The other day i read a report that British grandparents complained of being overlooked by their grandchildren who preferred to searching for answers and advices on the Internet.
The survey showed that 9 out of 10 UK grandparents claim that their children failed to ask them for advices and answers on even simple tasks such as how to boil an egg, iron a shirt and even details on their family history are being ask by younger generations from search engines which Google is the leader.
This report spark and arouse the genius in me to write something on these search engines which includes the meaning of search engines, their benefits and shortcomings and others that you will read in this article. Just sit back and relax, you can even cross your leg as am taking you to the world of search engines.

What are search engines
Search engines are online sites with a platform designed to help people find the information they are looking for on the World Wide Web. A search engine is made of of the following three major components.

Interface
This is also known as a web page. A typical example is Google search page where you will see a box where you input what you want the search engine to search for.

An index
This is like a library where the search engine stores all the information they have. It is from this search engine index that answers are taken to meet with searchers findings.

Crawlers or spiders
Search engines use program like spiders or crawlers to search through online pages looking for new links. When they find one, they follow the link, assess and gathered the information they need and then add it to their index. The secret of search engines having a wide variety of information is due to these program of crawlers and spiders.

Language of search engines
 In the real world, two or more people should speak the language they both understand for effective communication and before they can help themselves. Likewise, search engines need to clearly understand what information you are looking for. The traditional language we use in communicating with computer-based search engines is termed Boolean, named after the 19th century English Mathematician, George Boole and is classified into keywords and operators.
Words that we type in the search box are the keywords which are use to describe the information we are searching for and we use operators ( AND, OR and NOT ) to describe the relationship between our keywords. Though, the keywords concept is broad but i will like to give my own understanding of it in one of my future post.

Advantages of search engines

1. Easy access to information
Information is vital for our day to day activities. We need information to grow as an individual and business cannot thrive without obtaining information from both internal and external source. Such is the important of information that some people are now selling information online as a way of living. Such people are referred to ' information marketers ' and many of them have made huge income from this field. Search engine have enable people of all walks of life to have access to any information they might need. Decades ago, you have to buy a book, go to the library or ask people/elders or even pay before you can get vital informations but today, search engines have made every piece of information an ' open secret .'

2. A wide library of information
Search engines give us access to a wide range of information. I was surprised one day when I want to find the meaning of ' basil ' plant in my native language which is ' Yoruba.' I did not think that I could get the meaning but reluctantly i took my phone, go to google and type for the meaning of basil plant in Yoruba. I was so surprised when google brought out the results and the results showed that basil is "effirin" in Yoruba language. Even all the people around me were amazed. Such is the benefits of search engines that you can find information on the most common thing to the most hidden one. Truly i can say that search engines serve as the modern day world library .

3. Unlimited access to information

The presence of a large number of search engines enrich the Internet and make it possible for the users to have unlimited access to information. Availability of more than one search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Wikipedia, YouTube among others mean that information is not monopolized. If you don't find what you are looking for in one or you are not satisfied with the answer then you go to the other ones until you get the information that meet your taste.

4. Organization
Vast majority of information that are scattered in the various millions of websites and blogs are collated and organized in search engines index. This help the searchers to get a more precise set of information.
However, one of the disadvantages of search engines is that after searchers input their keywords to the search engine box, the result obtained often contain list after list of irrelevant web pages and information. You are still require to check through the list to find suitable ones and this can be frustrating sometimes.
Also, anybody can have access to any information at anytime which is not always good.

List of some famous search engines

Google web search
Is a platform of google which help you to search for information on the web. It is the most popular search engine in the world. You can go to the website by typing google.com in your web browser. On the main page you will see a text box where you will input your search keywords.


                                   

Bing
This is the search engine of Microsoft which was launched in June 2009. They collaborated with yahoo to have indirect access to yahoo index. Their major services includes Bing mobile, Bing maps & local, Bing travel e.t.c

Yahoo search
This should be the second most popular search engine in the world behind google. However, Google rivalry and hegemony is too strong for yahoo that it popularity is fast reducing this days. There was a news i heard in 2012 that Yahoo and Facebook are planning search partnership but i think with new bloggers emerging everyday and many of them hoping to earn from Google Adsense, Google dominance in the search engine arena is here to stay and will rule for the foreseeable future.

YouTube
Is a video sharing website created by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim who were early employees of Paypal. It is designed for users to upload, view and share videos. YouTube was bought by Google in November 2006 for over $1.6 billion, thus making YouTube a subsidiary of Google.

WikiHow
Is a web-based and wiki-based community of massive contents on how- to-guides. It boost over 143,000 how-to articles and readers of over 35 million from over 200 countries who visited it over 44million times per month.

eHow
Is also an online how-to guide site but broader than WikiHow. It boost over 1 million articles and 170,000 videos created by paid writers also know as  freelancers. No wonder, eHow is often referred to as "content mill"

Wikipedia
Was created in 2001 and the contents are contributed by contributors who write for free. It has since grow into one of the biggest reference website attracting over 470 million visitors per month, more than 77000 contributors, over 22 million articles in 285 languages among which over 4 million are English written articles.

Mobile apps business is fast growing and if you join the train early you stand the chance of making a lot from it especially if you are creative enough to make something different.

The rate at which an app sells also depend on how competitive and demanding the market for such app is.

The various way you can make money with mobile apps include 

1. If you are the main developer

2. Posting links to your product on forum related to your product

3. Promote it offline through newspapers, magazines, TV and radio. You can target sport and entertainment newspapers and magazines because this is where your potential customers could be.

Increase Your Winning By Evaluating Your Online Trade In Sample Sizes


Imagine how successful a banker will be if he thinks like a golfer. So, to make way in your online trading you have to think like a trader. The best way to do this is to train yourself by increasing your technical know-how on your chosen online trade.

Online trading involve risk. So, it is useful to make pre-evaluation of your probabilities of making a gain or loss.You have to do a pre-evaluation of your outcomes overtime by thinking in sample sizes. For instance you can analyse the result of say 30 trades rather than on 5 trades, a month rather than a week, 6 months and even a year.

Rather than looking your gain or loss for the day or week, why not look at it over a period of 20 days or month. For instance, how many trades do you win out of  60 trade.You may discover that in the first 15 trades you may loss 10 but over the next 60 trades you may win 40 which is a good trade. This will help you to know your advantage and calm your emotions and fear from trade to trade as well as help you to trade with more confidence and consistency. The sample size is a reflection of what is happening or the behavioural pattern of the online trade in question.
In a certain period during the online trading you may loss a string of trades say 5-10 trades repeatedly or one after the other. Meanwhile, there will also be a happy time where you will win 10 trade consecutively. All in all what is important is for you to discover a trading strategy that give you more winning than loss over a given period of time. With that you have no reason to be afraid over a string of lossing trades.

Trading in statistics or sample sizes will also help to overcome emotional risk associated with online trading like forex, fixed odds, sports e.t.c.
You have to know and abide by the following principles for you to avoid emotional stress and become less concerned about the outcome of individual trade and focus more on how it reflect in the set or sample size.

1. You either gain or loss

2.You don't need to know what is happening in the market after you place a trade

3.A gain is higher probability that your win is more than your loss

4.Every trade is important

5.Find a winning strategy

6.Demotrade for 6 months to really sure of your strategy, to know the behaviour of the market and to build your confidence especially if you are trading forex.

7.Start trading with little money

8.Don't think of making money in the short run but think of long term trading success. Think of where you will be in the next 5-10 years if you can master your trade.

9.Don't plan on surviving on the profit you are making in the short run. In other words,don't eat your profit as you are making it.

10.Set a future date when you will start eating from the fruit of your labour by paying yourself from the profit.

Conclusion
All in all, to trade in sample sizes means to know that gain and loss make up your set or trade, identify your strength and weakness, carry out your trade the same way everytime and ultimately analyze your trades in set and not individually. Doing this will help you to improve your online trading confidence and your winning strike. I have been using this strategy in my online fixed trade and it works.

If you are given a rare chance make sure you utilize the opportunity by writing qualitative and quantitative post.

Make sure the number of words in your post is more than 500.

Let your letters be factual, simple, clear and not repetitive.

Don't copy and paste article from another blog. Take your time to do research and write the post in your own way i.e be original.

By posting a quality and informative contents on other people's site you are thereby making people see you has someone who is reliable, authoritative and useful.

Small business that cannot afford the cost of renting a large apartment, cost of transportation, cost of equipments and cost of paying a large number of employees can still impress and survive on the internet with the help of their website.
Let us take a business entity that deals with book as a case study. In the real world they might not be able to afford the cost of rentage, printing machine, cutting machine, paper, advertisement, packaging and supply. Meanwhile, with the aid of internet, what they need to do is produce the book in form of ebook and customer can get it through direct sending by email or through downloading.

Ease of payment
The only way we can pay for our business transactions before the advent of the internet is through the exchange of physical cash or bank payment/transfer. So, it is difficult for someone in distant location to pay for product or service especially if the amount involved is not much. Imaging how difficult and discouraging it will be for a person residing in another state or country to pay for a service of 1-5 dollars through the bank. Nowadays, with many online payment solution platforms like Paypal and Libertyreserves among others, one can make payment to and from another nation with the click of a mouse. What a relief to business people.

Increase affiliate marketing and sales
As an affiliate marketer, it is not necessary you own a site where you can sell products directly to customers, you can just provide information about the product then put a link to the manufacturer site or where the product can be bought and you will receive a commision everytime a sale is made through the affiliate link. My point here is that both the owner of the product and the affiliate marketer benefited from the affiliate sale at the end of the day. Though, affiliate marketing is used to be done offline but is now easier, quicker and more effective online and many individuals and business owners are utilizing this golden opportunity.
