  1. Good post, you’ve really taken the time to cover all subjects, I particularly like the ‘linkbait’ metrics i’m looking to improve in that area and it’s always nice to get some info on it. I’m using some automating tools (http://www.FreedomBusinessSystem.com)to try and keep up with all things needed I need to do.
    Thanks for a great post and i’ll back to see more of the same.

  2. Muhammad, It was a shock to see ‘Unexplored Values of Twitter’ making your weekly wrap-up!
    Thanks so much for including me.
    I enjoyed reading ProBlogger’s SU article very much. Thanks for the hook-up.

  3. Hi Muhammad,
    Very informative posts. I was particularly drawn to the “10 Principles of Web Design”. The post highlighted a number of valid points. As the author cleverly pointed out – “the visitor to the page is the only one who clicks the mouse and decides everything” – it is imperative to keep ones target audience in mind when designing a site. A lot of people overlook this, putting up fancy sites with lots of graphics, but fail to deliver what the customer is actually looking for. Knowing what makes your visitor click is paramount to success. There are numerous variables on your website that can trigger a response from your visitor e.g. headlines, product description, product graphic etc. Continual testing and analysing will result in maximum conversions and increased search engine rankings. Whilst this sounds like a lot of hard work, thankfully there are numerous tools available that dramatically increase performance e.g. MuVar, RaSof, Nemeas, and are very simple to use. All businesses require work, and a wesite is no different. The point about visitors being impatient is also valid. A site should have a fresh, clean look, free of waffle, excessive unrelated graphics, etc. If a visitor is looking for something specific, they need to find it in the easiest manner. Effective writing, not trying the visitor’s patience, simplicity, testing, etc., are all excellent points. A lot of people are now realising that they have not maximised the potential of their sites and are revamping them. It would be worth their while to read that post. This is a hot topic at the moment. Nice site Mohammad. I’ve had a look around and you have some useful information in various categories.

  4. Your post is truly informative. It provides a conglomerate of resources.
