Internet Explorer 7 RC1 Flagging Sites Wrongfully As Phishing Sites

It all started with a web site owner receiving an e-mail from an unhappy client informing him that the anti-phishing scanner of Internet Explorer RC1 detected his site as a possible fraudulent web site. When Internet Explorer detects a possible fraudulent site, it warns the user not to enter any personal or sensitive information on the specific site in question. This means that if your site gets detected as a phishing site, you will most certainly loose clients because no one will want to buy from you (to sell products online you require information like e-mail addresses, shipping addresses and credit card information).

Which bears me the most is the fact that web site owners discovered this and will likely encourage their visitors to turn of the anti-phishing feature. This beats the whole idea of ​​having the scanner there in the first place. Internet Explorer is causing a loss of confidence in two directions, the one being the web site and the other being the anti-phishing scanner. People will start to doubt respectable web sites and at the same time question the accuracy of the anti-phishing protection of Internet Explorer. The anti-phishing scanner is a great idea and an innovative way of battling the ever-increasing threat of online fraud. But when things go horribly wrong like this, you do more harm than good.

You have to take into consideration that it is still a release candidate and not the final version and bugs will most certainly be present. But you have to make sure that things like this will not happen before you release it into the open. I can only imagine how much money has been lost because of this flaw and you might even see some lawsuits in the near future if the matter is not resolved in a timely matter.

The developers of Firefox are also implementing an anti-phishing feature for Firefox 2. This anti-phishing feature handles possible fraudulent sites fairly the same way as the Google Safe Browsing feature of the Google Toolbar. This brings an idea to mind. If you really feel you need anti-phishing protection then get Firefox with Google Toolbar, it is far better and safer using a stable browser than using a pre-release version of a browser with multiple of security issues and flaws. To be honest, you should seriously consider an alternative browser to Internet Explorer, because it will be compulsory for all Internet Explorer 6 users to upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 once the final version gets released. Ask yourself the question, are you going to be bullied onto using an unreliable product or are you going to decide for yourself what is the best for your online safety?

Get Free Traffic to Your Website

Entrepreneurs have learned that article marketing deals great business exposure, as it makes one of the cheapest forms of advertising. Article marketing is defined by the writing of web content around some very specific keywords and the submission of these materials in web directories. The system of article marketing is not at all new and it does not characterize the age of the Internet alone; in fact, it generally defines mass print with local press, in particular. Here is how it works!

Businesses write articles and offer them to local publications for free, on the one condition that they have their business details specified. This arrangement works perfectly for everyone involved. For instance you can read about how to prepare your home and garden for winter just before the cold months begin, and such content is offered by a business that deals in insulation systems. Article marketing strategies are no novelty and their use is recognized at all business levels.

Things go on in pretty much a similar way on the Internet, where web developers submit articles to spread the word about their business. You do not have to pay for article submission to web directories, since these sites make profit from advertising with AdSense most of the time. And the more articles get posted, the higher the website popularity and the traffic ranking.

Article marketing works hand in hand with SEO, since the Internet is governed by keywords: they define business domains, products and services as well as all the web mechanisms. These materials target niches with very relevant readers, and have the best chances of making profit. Due to the links included in the informative content, articles attract hundreds if not thousands of web visitors that navigate from link to link until they reach your web site. Every back links refer to the business website.

Article marketing can increase traffic and works with social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook that provide the right environment for the propagation of materials. Quick business exposure is normally the aim of advertisers who rely on article marketing, but the risk that comes with it consist in the reduction of the quality level. Even if good quality content attracts more web visitors, not everyone actually manages to keep the standards up. Too bad for them! …

  • Software: This is what the majority of people use with CPanel, they install Fantastico, which helps in the installation of WordPress on your site, and it also creates the database for you.
  • Advanced: In here you can perform certain tasks on your site such as cron jobs (automated tasks), and other options such as network tools, or index manager.

So that basically is the structure of your CPanel, it might look daunting at first, but in reality it's straight forward after a few go's. Most people tend to use only a few categories anyway, they want there website up and running, so they will install fantastico, from the software category. Then they will probably use the file manager to upload various things to the site, themes, plugins, graphics etc.
