I felt that there could not be a blog post series about housing (with Lord of the Rings Online, Aion and Rift) without Everquest 2. Even though I have never really gotten into the game, the reason I tried it out in the first place was the housing. So, I’m very honored that Rakuno offered to write a guest post about this game’s housing as he’s been playing it for a very long time. Also, have a good look at the gallery at the end of this posting. 132 screenshots showing off the housing in Everquest 2! If you like what you see here, please also be sure to check out his blog! *** Whenever the discussion of housing comes up in an existing MMO or one in development, Everquest 2’s housing system is often mentioned. There are good reasons for that, as housing in Everquest 2 is certainly one of the most feature rich of the current available MMOs. It is one of the features of the game that has been around since its launch in 2004 and has been improving ever since. … [Read more...] about Housing in MMOs: Everquest 2

‘Million’ is a magical word. However, until a few years back, it used to be an alien word for me. I’m from New Delhi, India, and here we talk in Lakhs and Crores. Thanks to globalization and the growth of the blogging and startup industries, “million” is no longer a word that is exciting for me. Why am I talking about this word? Because ShoutMeLoud receives more than 1.5 million page views a month, and one of my goals for this year is to reach 2 million page views a month.

Are you a financial advisor wondering how to get more leads online? Are you struggling to convert your prospects into clients? Read on to learn one marketing channel which will help you to establish yourself as an authority, and get more clients in the most renowned way. Personal finance or finance in any form used to be like rocket science for me until recently. The only thing I know about personal finance so far is that we need to earn, invest under some section such as 80C, 80D etc.. to save taxes, and file our income tax return. A few months ago, I got in touch with a chartered accountant/personal financial advisor/wealth management guy because I was taking out a loan to buy a flat. It was then when I realized how important personal financial planning is for everyone, including you and me. This article is not about the importance of personal finance, but is instead directed to all those personal financial advisors and wealth … [Read more...] about Why Your Personal Finance Business Needs a Blog Right Away!
Social Media websites can drive insanely great traffic to your blog if you have a good social media marketing strategy. But it can drive fair amount of traffic if you just submit blog posts regularly to your social media profiles. Social media traffic is as important as organic traffic from search engines as we can’t rely on Google alone. They continue to push algorithmic updates like Panda, Penguin and who knows the next could be Giraffe. It means that we must diversify the way we get traffic. I’m going to list the top social media and other websites that you shouldn’t ignore or must use as part of your social media marketing strategy. I’m NOT going to list all the stupid social media or the so called web 2.0 sites out there as I’m going to focus only on sites that can drive traffic to our websites in one way or the other and not for building backlinks.
