Traffic

Media, Social Media Marketing

Using effective tactics that boost

your blog traffic is the first step

in achieving a variety of goals.

Those objectives could include,

selling products and services,

building brand awareness,

position yourself as a thought

leader or to connect and

network. Whatever the goals are,

traffic provides the visibility to

engage and sell.

Website visitors is where it all

starts. No traffic…nothing

happens.

In the past bloggers only had

one big tactic.

Building an email list.

This is still important despite the

allure of social media with all its

hype and bluster, real and

imagined. Social media since

arriving on the scene has offered

bloggers two core and very

important capabilities that were

not part of the web landscape

until social media turned up.

1. Multiple platforms and

networks to re-publish and

share their content on. You

can now discover a blogger

and their content because it

is published…

How to Include an RSS Feed in

Blogs at Blogger.com /

Blogspot.com

RSSinclude.com makes it very

easy to include RSS feeds in your

blog. Basically there are two

areas on blogs where you can

add an RSS box:

1) in the sidebar on the right

side (containing the Blog Archive,

About me and Followers...)

or

2) in blog posts.

We would like to explain both in

the following sections.

1) RSSbox in the Sidebar of the

Blog

This area of your blog is visible

permanently. You can add a blog

archive, your personal bio and

much more to this area. Of

course you can put an RSSbox

from RSSinclude.com here. This is

how:

a) Log in to your account at

blogger.com. On top of the page

there is a main menu. Click the

"Layout" link, this will lead you to

a graphical overview of your

blog.

b) Click the "Add a Gadget" link. A

new window will be opened

displaying different gadgets from

which you can choose. Select

"HTML/JavaScript" to add third-

party code like ours.

c) A form will appear which

contains two form fields: titl…

Group commended President Jonathan for signing the National Tobacco Control Bill

Auwal Rafsanjani, CISLAC

Executive Director of The National Tobacco Control Bill

Coalition has commended

President Goodluck Jonathan on behalf of the group ( comprising the

Civil Society

Legislative Advocacy Centre,

Environmental Rights Action/

Friends of the Earth Nigeria, and

the Nigeria Tobacco Control

Coalition) for

signing the National Tobacco

Control Bill, labelling it an

extraordinary public health

legacy.



"We salute the courage of

President Jonathan in signing

this bill into law, ignoring

overtures by the tobacco

industry to frustrate every effort

to enact a comprehensive

tobacco control legislation in

Nigeria," he said.



Meanwhile, Akinbode Oluwafemi, Director

Corporate Accountability

Campaigns, noted that more

work needs to be done in

ensuring that every Nigerian is

protected from the harmful

effects of tobacco.



"This bill is however providing

Nigeria the necessary framework

for action both at the local, state

and national levels," Mr.

Oluwafemi said.

Obesity in adolescence have been linked to bowel cancer risk

Obesity in adolescence have been linked to

bowel cancer risk.



According to a study,

being overweight in

adolescence can lead to a

greater risk of bowel cancer

later in life.



The research was conducted using nearly

240,000 Swedish men whom are followed for 35

years.



The analysis, which was published in the

journal Gut, revealed that teenagers that are overweight later in life

have twice

the risk of bowel cancer and this is even more riskier in

obese teens.



Read the full report as published by BBC health after the cut...



The World Cancer Research Fund

said the link between obesity

and cancer was "strong".

Bowel cancer is the third most

common cancer in the world,

with nearly 1.4 million new cases

each year.

Processed red meat and

abdominal fat have been linked

to the disease.

'Accelerated growth'

The participants in the study

were aged between 16 and 20 at

the start.

The overwhelming majority were

a normal weight, but 6.5% were

overweight and 1% were obese.

There were 855 cases of

colorectal cancer in…

Fruit snacks are saturated with more sugar than sweets

Fruit snacks 'contain more

sugar than sweets'



Many supposedly "healthy" fruit

snacks aimed at children

contain more sugar than

sweets, says a campaign group.

Action on Sugar looked at 94

products on UK sale, such as

coated dried fruit, and found a

third contained three or four

teaspoons of sugar and 85%

were more sugary than Haribo

Starmix sweets.

Child health experts said the

findings were frightening.

The industry pointed out that

most of the snacks had no added

sugars, and those that did were

clearly labelled.

Action on Sugar said that parents

should give their children fresh

fruit and vegetables instead of

processed fruit snacks.

And it called on food

manufacturers to stop adding

unnecessary sugars to fruit-

based snacks while labelling

them as contributing to "one of

your five a day".

Katharine Jenner, campaign

director at Action on Sugar, said:

"Parents find it hard enough to

know what 'healthy' is without

food manufacturers confusing

matters with misleading claims.

11 Websites to Solve Your Content Marketing Problem

11 Websites to Solve Your

Content Marketing Problem



"A blog post should reach all the

people it is aimed to help while

writing. All of them." – My

principle. But let's see the other

side of the coin first.

You worked your ass off to

create a blog post that you are

proud of.

You published it.

27 of your regular friends and

fellow bloggers shared it on their

social platform and you got 200

page views the opening day.

The next day you got 156 and 87

page views the third day.

Your awesome blog post died a

natural death. Period.

It might appear natural, but I say

it was a murder by you. You

murdered your blog post.

If I were you I would not have let

the post die. A post I work "my

ass off" on should reach at least

its potential audience. If you also

agree to my principle you would

find this post on maximizing

your content reach useful.

I will show you 11 ultimate

places to share your blog posts

after you hit publish.

Let's continue.

Why images of the Prophet Mohammed is forbidden

Why are images of the Prophet
Mohammed so offensive?

Objections to portrayal of
Mohammed "rooted in the
notion of idol worship,"
professor says
The Muslim disapproval of
depicting prophets extends to
Jesus and Moses, imam says
In globalization age, non-
Muslims and critics of Islam
have felt free to depict
Mohammed
(CNN)—Violence over depictions
of the Prophet Mohammed may
mystify many non-Muslims, but it
speaks to a central tenet of Islam:
the worship of God alone.
The prohibition began as an
attempt to ward off idol worship,
which was widespread in Islam's
Arabian birthplace. But in recent
years, that prohibition has taken
on a deadly edge.
A central tenet of Islam is that
Mohammed was a man, not God,
and that portraying him could
lead to revering him in lieu of
Allah.
"It's all rooted in the notion of
idol worship," Akbar Ahmed,

How often should i posts on my blog

By Susan Gunelius, Blogging

Expert

Once you decide to start a blog,

you'll need to determine what

your goals are for your blog. If

you want to grow your blog and

attract new readers (and keep

them once they visit), you'll need

to put some thought into your

blog posting frequency.

.

Blog Content is Key

.

In the blogging world, a

commonly used phrase is, "it's all

about the content." In short, that

means that the most important

part of your blog is the content

you publish through your blog

posts. What makes your content

most compelling is a

combination of your topic, your

opinion, your writing style or

voice, and your blog's freshness.

Your blog posting frequency is

directly tied to the freshness of

your blog.

newspaper everyday if the

articles in that paper never
