Beating Adware, The Sneakiest Software

Promoters of adware, software that shows advertising on a user's computer, use some cunning tricks to get you to install their software on your machine. Here's what to look out for.

Adware is, by definition, something reasonable people do not want on their computers. That's why malware can not just come out and ask people to install it. Often, the computer owner is completely unaware of it being installed. But not always.

When adware does not want to sneak in through an open window, it will try to trick you into letting it in through the front door. Do not think you could be tricked? Do not be so sure until you've checked out these most common ways people have been tricked into preventing malware to be installed on their machines.

Adware Installation Trick 1: Piggybacking

o How it works: malware may come bundled with a legitimate piece of software the user actually wants, such as a game or emoticon. The malware is purely labeled "companion software," without any indication of what it will do.

o How to fight it: Be very suspicious of any software that comes bundled with other software. Do not installed software that comes bundled with other software unless you know everything that the bundled software does. After all, if the bundled program has anything to do with the program you actually want, why could not the software developer just get both programs' functionalities into a single piece of software? Software developers are now very sensitive to malware concerns and will provide a lengthy explanation of just why the bundled software is necessary, in the cases when they actually do need to use bundled software.

Adware Installation Trick 2: Bait and Switch

o How it works: since people are getting more and more suspicious of bundled software, the malware's developers may simply label it as valuable software, for instance, a browser plugin that supposedly accelerates web browsing (but in reality only shows ads).

o How to fight it: again, a suspicious mind is useful in avoiding malware. Ask yourself some questions:

o What will this software actually do? Malware often comes with very fuzzy claims attached. Sure, it says it will improve your browsing experience, but how? Often, this improved browsing experience just means a browsing experience with more advertising.

o If the software is so great, why is it being given away free? Most commonly, software is only given out in two cases: if it's OpenSource (designed by a community of developers and not proprietary – OpenSource software is always clearly labeled as such) …

Research is the ABC of SEO

I have been reading a lot online recently and the social media buzz grows on a daily basis. Yes, we all know that social networking is becoming an essential part of SEO and how search engines are ranking your site, but many of these 'SEO / Internet marketing gurus', offering 'rank me quick' solutions are focusing too much on the content distribution and link generating.

What ever happened to good old fashioned keyword, competitor and online market research? – the phrases that you choose to optimize your site for, assuming that you achieve high search engine rankings for them, will form the foundation of your social media campaign – giving it a focus … so spare some time for the research and don ' t put the Social Media cart before the SEO horse!

It is essential that you know who , what and where your competitors are – both on and offline, in order to make informed decisions regarding the online marketing of your website. You will have an idea of ​​the 'primary' key phrase that relates most accurately to what your site is about, this may or may not be the best phrase to target (but I do like to cover that in a later post), however for the purposes of this post just go with one that springs to mind.

Your Competitors

Who – You will have an idea of ​​who you think your competitors are, but are they competitive for the phrase that you want to target? Make a search for the keyphrase that you have chosen – which site is in position 1 in Google (the gods of search) ?, is it the site that you thought would be there?

What – What is the site 'selling'? Is it the same products / services or similar to yours? and what sets you apart in terms of unique selling points? What levels of functionality does the site have, in order to engage the user? and what call to action, offers and other 'communication' methods are on the site?

Where – is the business local to you or is it a national company? maybe is not even a business in Scotland! Consider where your target markets would use this site to buy something that you can provide.

With all these things considered, you can then begin to look at the competitiveness of that phrase (there are various tools available to help you here) and whether your budget and SEO skills allow you to compete in this 'search space'. If so, begin to look at what value that top site has, domain age, number of inbound links, how the on page optimization has been performed etc., then you will know whether:

  • a) this is the right search phrase to target
  • b) what your site must include and how much work is involved to rank for the phrase
  • c) the potential return (in £ 's) for a page 1, position 1 ranking
