Google means professionalism

My association with Google started some years ago.I used many of their products and still like them even though they gather my personal information, my browsing habits etc for improving their products and for developing stronger marketing and advertising strategies.In 2007, i got signed up as an adsense publisher and now i am getting regular cheques from them.

Usually the cheques are sent on the last week of a month.The dates would be like May 25, June 24, August 25, September 26 etc.But in December, the cheques are send on 19th of December.This is because they know that it is going to get delayed due to christmas and new year holidays.So they plan it earlier so that publishers get the cheques on time.Professionalism can be observed in such minute incidents.

Don't Waste Opportunities

One fine morning, it was yet another hectic day at the busy cash counter of a leading bank.A young man pointed a pistol to the cashier and shouted to him to fill a bag he gave with the other hand with money.He shouted, "Make it fast".

The unexpected attack got the clients and banking staff present there in utter shock.For the love of his life , the cashier loaded the bag with bundles of currency.To create an atmosphere of terror, he fired some shots over the head damaging seriously tube lights and composite panel cieling.

Once he got hold of the bag he was making way to the exit.Suddenly the gigantic bank robberer turned back and walked back to the bank manager who rushed in at the spot.Since the theif did not used a mask everyone in the room photographed his face in their mind.

He asked the manager, "Did u see my face?".

The brave manager even though with fear inside replied strongly, "yes i saw it".A bullet for him was the reply while all the others made screaming voices.

He asked the others, "Now is there any one here who saw me stealing the bank?".

He asked pointing the gun to a middle aged man and his wife standing in a queue there.

The man stammerred ,"I haven't seen it, but my wife has!".

Fireshots were heard from inside the bank again..So friends don't waste opportunitites when the visit you.

A Beautiful Mind

SYNCING.NET 10% Discount
Some people are gifted with a beautiful mind.Let me correct the sentence again.All people are
gifted with beautiful minds and are unique.It is just that you recognize it's quality a little late.

Mr Arun is a billionaire Indian businessman based in New York.One afternoon he walked in to a bank in New York.He requested a loan of 5000 $.The banker declined stating that they need
necessary security for granting the loan.Arun gladly gave the keys of his red Ferrari parked in
bank's parking area.Suddenly his loan was granted.When we was walking out , the banker
thought that what a fool Arun is.Since he pledged a car worth 2,50,000 $ for a meagre amount
of $5000.He couldn't help stop laughing thinking about the foolishness.Soon a bank employee
took the car to the underground parking area of the bank.

After 2 weeks, Arun came back to the bank and returned the $5000.He paid an additional $16 as interest for two weeks.The banker told him that he was glad doing banking with Arun and he
could find upon enquiry that Arun was a millionaire.He wanted to know why he took the $5000
loan.Arun replied that with a smile that he needed to go out from New York city for a business
trip for 2 weeks.So this is the best place he found in New York to park his Ferrari for two weeks
at $16.

A similiar instance i know of a man who closed his bank locker account that costs 5000 Rs an
year.He wanted to keep gold worth Rs 5 lakhs.He took a gold loan for one lakh pledging the
whole gold and the gold got securely stored in the bank's locked and it's weight got measured
and now it is the bank's responsibility to keep the gold.Now this man paid 99,000 Rs after
couple of days.Now he has to pay 110 rupees as interest for keeping the gold in the bank.

This two people are Indians.Their intelligence should be admired.

Mr Anthuley Enough is Enough

People are shocked when they heard Mr Anthuley playing the communal cards and eyeing minority votebank by saying that he is suspicious of Karkare's death.This was not the right time.You had enough time later when the nation is going to face the polls.It was an unbecoming of your office.You will have to face the wrath of common man for sometime.They will forget later since you have trained them to do so.This is the time to see the indian citizens as indians and not to see them as hindu, muslim, christian, sikh, tamil, punjabi, bihari, maratha..etc.

A minister who says the same language that pakistan uses...This time minorities won't stand with you to dance with your tricks........Not this time.

President George Bush Thrown Shoe in Iraq

George Bush is leaving his chair in a rather sad note.He is himself worried about the economy and his image and stature in US and around the world is the lowest currently.His foreign
policies made him a figure to hate upon around the world.He was a war monger and he gets bored when there is no war.I heard this in a film.

Now an Iraqi media person throws his shoes at Mr. Bush.Thanks to his acrobatic skills that
helped him to duck at the correct moment.

People of Iraq hates him.But is this the way to treat him?Many say that he raided Iraq for oil and water from Tigris.Some consider him as the new face of imperialism in the 21st century.A man who acts for his corporate bosses.As a coward who withdrew from the Kyoto protocol.

He cannot escape the sins saying that he acted in the interest of the people of America.As per
the US government census of 2007, the poverty rate in America is 12,5 percent.37.3 million
people are living in poverty there.So he should be dealing problems in his country when his
whole attention was on war and on world politics.His package to write debts of corporates is not good.He can eliminate poverty over the world if he could spread the money there.Any way Somalian pirates are going reckless and practicing socialism.The world requires Bush's skill and will there.But he shies away when in need.
This pdf shows the poverty graph (PDF).

Online Indian Ad Network Komli Review

Komli Inc is an indian ad network that provides banner advertising.Many indian advertisers are using Komli to reach out to indian diaspora around the globe.Do not use komli if your visitors are not ninety percent Indians.Komli has NRI ads of bharatmatrimony and simplymarry.

Komli is a system that is oriented towards the advertiser.That is if you can advertise to people in india at damn cheap costs.Comparing to advertising on other networks, advertising on komli is damn cheap.The after effect is that Komli pays less to the publisher.

For publishers, komli is a flop scene.Your ads are going to be clicked less than google adsense ad.The CTR would be too low.The EPM rates are unimaginably low.The only positive is that you get to see the earnings billed in Rs on the reports.Do you feel proud to be an Indian?

Click here for Komli Website
We do not recommend this service.

At http://power.komli.com the signed up user can see the following screen
Once you sign up you can see the dashboard and revenue report.The top left graph shows the pattern of revenue generation over this network over 30 days.It is titled 'Revenue (Last 30 Days) .The next graph is a bar type representation of week on week Net eCPM an impressions.
Now the eCPM gives you an information about how an ad network performs compare to other network.An eCPM of 8.9 was seen on a particular day.It means that if 1000 impressions from this ad network is displayed, you get 8.9 Rupees.

Komli stresses on conversions from the ads displayed on your website.It means that even if people have viewed on clicked your ads you get paid in paisas and if you want in rupees the visits should generate sales(mp3 player from futurebazaar.com) or sales request (called a lead like some one filling out a form at sharekhan.com or registering at shaadi.com).

There is less competition among advertisers for adspace in komli.The result ,they pay you less....

So better go for adsense , chitika for monetizing your website.If you still have a true indian website , affiliate marketing using DGM India is better.

If you still want to know where komli loses the edge with google see the image below:

If you can't see the text, i can type it here.
Impressions = 163,201
Clicks = 466
Conversion = 36
Click rate = 0.29
Publisher Compensation = 1287.44 (this is in rupees..amazing)
Net eCPM = 7.89 (never below 100 in adsense)
ROI (return of investment for the advertiser) = 90.99

If people at komli are reading this page, please understand that google became market leader because they were trying to share the pie with the publishers which you and tyroo are reluctant.

I guess you would blame the publisher websites for the less click rate.But you can work on your adserving also...right?
The Verdict
Use only on unsold inventory ad spaces...Better stay away from them.......

A Wonder Bank Called Time

We all are account holders of a great bank where on everyday our account have an opening balance of 86400 and goes to the next working day with zero balance.

The name of the bank is "TIME".Every morning 86400 seconds are deposited in this account.

If you have not used the seconds for good acts, you need to write off the amount each night.If you do acts of kindness and goodness, certainly there would be nothing left at night.

Every new day in this bank, a new account is opened.There is no overdraft facility available here.

You are failure if you cannot use the sum deposited by the day.Because you cannot walk back in time .The rewind button is seldom present.This bank do not sanction loans expecting your future growth or returns.

So we can only live back the life with today's deposits, certainly not tomorrows.

So use the deposits judiciously for creating maximum happiness and goodness around you. Remember the clock are ticking as well as time.
