The Throne Keeper

Snapchat was the throne keeper of those minuscule social clips only watchable for a 24 hour period. All credit goes to the massive amass interest in full-screen visual interaction and a lack of competitors online due to its unique usability.

Shockingly, right at the very end of the Q3 phase, Snapchat showed a decline in its popularity, stating it was due to those technical errors with new products roll-out that reserved its growth ratio to ramp up more. As it began, Snapchat wasn’t a player anymore of its very own established league, as Instagram ambushed most of its counterparts with some amazing supplements triggered right into the biggest photo-sharing app. Similarly, trench coats fashionable personify panache was won big time by the all-new Mens Leather Jacket, and it was convincingly merch-magical indeed.

Snapchat was booming with its yellow and white ghost glory and hailed more than 150 million users. Right at the Q2 quarter, Snapchat had a growth rate of a well-credited 17.2 percent and was thriving at its best quarter close phase.

Signs of Obliterating Annihilation

The last and final quarter Q4 showed signs of obliterating annihilation performed by Instagram Stories on Snapchat, which endorsed only 3.2 percent during this time interval.

Instagram’s clone version

On the other hand, Instagram’s clone version of Snapchat was introduced to its already 300 million active daily users and 500 monthly active users. In about only two months, this feature became familiarized with 100 million daily active users of its own on the biggest photo-sharing phenomenon. August 2nd was the biggest game-changer for Instagram, snatching Snap Inc.’s reputation of having the most inimitable 24 hour long availability video-clip sharing feature.

Instagram’s Story feature

Snapchat was ultimately overthrown and consummated by Instagram’s Story feature, and even showed signs of decline against the Social networking parent website Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg’s website grew 4.2 percent users in Q4 and reached an approximate 1.23 billion users, while Snapchat witnessed its biggest sank amid its failure.

In order to behold users with something innovative enough to beat other social media trends, Snapchat failed miserably and never should signs to benefit users with something more intuitive as it once used to be.

Snapchat felt on to its knees at the hands of Instagram with its storytelling feature, which was later on integrated with multifaceted editing features.

Snapchat has revived

Snapchat felt on to its knees at the hands of Instagram with its storytelling feature, which was later on integrated with multifaceted editing features. Today, Snapchat has become obsolete when it comes to any massive scale up gradation to give users’ a beyond-belief factor that Snapchat has revived its glamorized ghostly appearance.

Now, if you see those animated cartoon cat faces with ears and whiskers, it’s more like some other app than Snapchat. All these augmented reality elements have grown copiously on many other social media platforms.

Dejectedly, it stands about just only to 25-30 million users and this populace is going further down the smart phone social apps gut. Snapchat’s growth rate has slowed on to a wretched users’ scale of up to 82%, and it feels that there is no way back to it.

4 Shortcomings of the Online Book Buying Experience

Buying goods online is no novel concept. It has been around for almost over a decade and has taken the world by storm. Consumers love purchasing goods online as well because it saves them a lot of time as well as money.

4 Shortcomings of the Online Book Buying Experience

In a way, books were the ones to start the online revolution with Amazon.com. Amazon, since then has become the third largest corporation in the United States of America and is worth more than a trillion dollars. This is not by accident. People love reading and they love buying books online because of all its ease and convenience. Even the online bookstores in Pakistan have taken off in recent times because of the popularity of the trend of purchasing books online.

4 Shortcomings of the Online Book Buying Experience

Yet, not everything that glitters is gold and there are some drawbacks, as there are with any other thing, when it comes to the online book buying experience.

Flaws in the Online Book Buying Experience

Let us look at some of the shortcomings while purchasing books online in Pakistan.

1. When the wrong book is delivered 

This is perhaps the most common flaw in the online book buying experience. People who shop online are all too aware of this one. It happens, though not very often, that the wrong book turns up at your doorstep. It is annoying and frustrating since you do not expect this mistake to happen, after all, how hard is it to deliver one book that was ordered from the site?

Yet, it is not just one book. This comes down to the back-end logistics of the online retailer you purchase from and how efficient it is in dealing with orders that come in. Sometimes, if there are too many orders and the backend system is not strong enough, errors occur and the wrong book ends up being delivered to the wrong address.

Moreover, sometimes, it is a just good old-fashioned human error. Where the courier might make a mistake and deliver the wrong book. This might be fine for some customers but for others, it’s a deal breaker and they may spread bad word of mouth publicity about the online retailer who made the mistake. This is detrimental to the business itself since a bad rapport with customers is the last thing that you need as a business.

Moreover, if this happens in case of academic books, it might cause more inconvenience for the customer since academic books are needed for university classes and for preparing exams. The wrong book delivered costs the customer precious time, which as students will tell you, they do not have. This will not sit well with consumers and they may never buy from that particular online book retailer again.

2. Complicated User Interface

Some online bookstores have a complicated user interface on their website. This makes it difficult for the consumer to find the book they are looking for and they end up going to another website. This, in turn, costs the business itself because they just lost a customer who was willing to buy but due to poor user interface was forced to leave the site. From the customer’s point of view, it is not only annoying but also wastes time.

That is why, it is essential to make online retail websites simple, and easy to use for consumers. This helps so that they can find the book they are looking for easily and quickly.

3. Lack of Discounts or Promotions

A significant drawback in the online book buying experience is that there are not as many discounts and promotions available as there are in the conventional brick and mortar bookshops. These are extremely important to consumers since everyone wants to save as much money as possible and even though online book retail stores offer cost efficiency to a certain extent, it is always nice when there are extra promotions and discounts available.

4. Lack of touch and feel of the books

This is important for many customers since we tend to trust our own selves more than anyone else’s and if we are able to touch and feel the book in our own hands then we are able to be satisfied with its condition.

Even though many online book retailers describe the condition of the book to consumers, yet the lack of touch and feel of the item itself is a serious drawback while purchasing online books in Pakistan. This is, in fact,, an inherent need in all consumers looking to buy books, perhaps passed down from the older generation to the next to be able to touch and feel the book in their hands before purchasing it.

These were just some of the drawbacks while purchasing online books in Pakistan. Though they may exist now, yet in time hopefully they will be weeded out.

Local SEO - What is local SEO lead generation and how does it work?

To me, the title of this articles summarizes a few trends. One, search is becoming local. Two, the ways in which local consumers find local companies is fundamentally different than a few years ago. Three, no online strategy is complete without a focus on local SEO whether you are a large multinational or a local mom and pop.

Local SEO - What is local SEO lead generation and how does it work

Local SEO - What is local SEO lead generation and how does it work?

Think SEO. Think marketing. Then think local. Local SEO lead generation is simply applying the principles of SEO (search engine optimization) to a targeted geographic area or areas to generate leads for your services. Meaning, selecting and optimizing for keywords that local searchers are likely to use.

An example might help

Let’s say you are a regional electronic retailer - ABT in the Chicago area. Now you might say that ABT can sell anywhere through e commerce. Partially true, but stay with me. Let’s say you want to attract at home chef’s (wannabe chefs in my mind). Local search engine optimization to generate leads is a logical choice for two reasons. One, you only have a store in one location and two you can’t really ship an expensive Viking stove all that far and still be competitive.

What to do? Well if you want to attract local at home chef’s who you think would buy Viking stoves from you in Chicago, you need to figure out how to reach them specifically. Meaning, Viking Stove, Home Chef, etc. are keywords that are unlikely to work given they will pull from all over the country. Instead, you might want to add a modifier - Chicago Viking Stove, Chicago Home Chef, etc.

Localize your keywords

To take it a step beyond SEO and focus on the next step, conversion, you might also consider creating a dedicated area on your site for Chicago At Home Chef’s focused on the Viking product line and offering recipes from local restaurants... Just a thought.

And even if you are a regional or national retailer, local SEO can still work for you. Think local specials, pushing products in local markets (local products, products specific to a local need) or growing market share for a particular product line in a specific geography.

Local SEO : Putting it into practice

Its rather simple. Its all about the keywords modifier something like if you are promoting the rewrting services you can use the paraphrasing tool online free. As you consider your SEO strategy, consider the area(s) you want to serve, promote to, create specials for, etc. Then determine what modifiers you can use (where there is still reasonable traffic) to narrow the traffic you receive to your area(s) of focus. Then add those modifiers to the keywords you are optimizing for Its that simple.

And the good news (beyond the fact that its easy) is that the results of local SEO will take less time to pay off. There is generally less competition for local keywords, so your site will show in the search engine results much quicker. Can it get any better?

Related: What is Affiliate Marketing? Step by Step Guide

Local SEO: Why its more effective than the Yellow Pages for lead generation

A statistic I use over and over again sums it up. 25% of all internet searches are locally focused. And local search is estimated to be growing at a pace of 24% a year.

What are all those local searchers looking for? Restaurants, plumbers, carpet cleaners, retailers, doctors, lawyers, you name it. And guess what they are abandoning - The Yellow Pages. Who wants to invest that time looking through a clunky book better served as a booster seat, foot rest, etc.

Ask yourself, Where do you want to advertise? Online for free using SEO or in the Yellow Pages which is primarily used by price sensitive, older shoppers... Hmm. What kind of lead do you want?

Related: Google Adsense Best Revenue Sharing Sites in 2018

Local SEO and the lead

I had to fulfill on the second half of the title’s promise. Local SEO for its own sake is useless. As is marketing for marketing’s sake. It needs to produce something tangible. And by tangible we mean a lead - whether a lead that comes into your store, calls you, fills out a form or buys online. It really doesn’t matter. The end game is creating leads - people who are interested locally.


Local SEO for lead generation is particularly important given that most internet searches result in offline bricks and mortar purchases, up to 80% of the household budget is spent locally and advertising that doesn’t produce customers is just a plain waste.

So when putting a local SEO campaign into place be sure you are building it in a way to generate or capture leads - a click, call, form or sale. And always be sure to track the conversion rate of those leads to understand whether your local SEO efforts are paying off.

How to Choose the Best WordPress Web Hosting For Your Blog in 2019

How to Choose the Best WordPress Web Hosting For Your Blog?

To make this comparison easy and handy for my readers, I tried to consider couple of points to choose a good hosting provider.

Price - The main factor

Costing is the key factor which stops many people from starting a self-hosted WordPress blogs. You will find many hosting companies offering very cheap prices. But the question is, are they really a good WordPress hosting provider?

Don't just go by the cheapest price hosting, there are some good hosting companies who offer cheaper plans. You can easily find that many of the best WordPress hosting services are charging very low cost on their monthly plans.

But remember one thing, these prices are applicable only for your initial purchase terms only, when you renew your hosting, you have to pay the actual price as most hosting companies don't offer any renewal discount.
  • Have low budget? Then go for shared hosting/WordPress hosting
  • Have good budget? Then you must try Managed WordPress Hosting

If you really want to get maximum discount on web hosting plans, then you must wait till Black Friday sale as during that period majority of the web hosting companies give deals of up to 98%.

Support - A necessary advantage

Almost every hosting company offers phone and email support. Many of them also offer live chat support which is the key to their success. But still some hosting companies face huge criticism due to their bad response time.

So, make sure you are choosing a hosting provider who offers instant support, have a highly knowledgeable technical team who can address and fix your issue as quickly as possible.

The problem with any web hosting company is that they can go down anytime and even a few seconds of downtime can make a huge defecit in your business. So, you need a dedicated support system which can be accessible at anytime of the day and week, 24/7.

Easy to Use cPanel

The beauty of WordPress hosting is the easy setups which any one can perform using the web hosting cPanel. Many shared hosting plans don't offer these many features which is little tricky for a beginner.

But with a good WordPress hosting plan you can easily perform various tasks like adding an addon domain, installing WordPress, creating email IDs, uploading files, taking backups etc.

These days, cPanels are becoming so easy to navigate that even a novice can also understand how to add domain name, install WordPress, and create email accounts easily.

Security - A must for a WordPress Blog

Security is the biggest worry for any kind of online business. For a webmaster to keep the website safe, one must install the SSL certificate. These days almost every top hosting company offers free SSL certificates.

This will make sure that your load time is less. Besides that, many hosting providers offer good caching system, free backups, free cloud flare integration and many more ways to keep your website secure.

Even if you have to pay a little extra, one must go with a reputed and reliable hosting company who is providing good security, caching system and backup services with their plans. You should not compromise with your security measures for buying a cheap hosting plan.

Speed - An important part of SEO 

Do you think your website speed only depends up on the speed optimizations you have done? Your website's SEO depends on other factors too. Then let me tell you are indeed wrong and that your hosting company is also responsible for this.

Yes, if your hosting plan isn't able to load the pages fast because of using outdated technology (Non SSD hosting, not PHP7 upgrade), improper caching system etc. then you must switch your hosting plan to a better one.

Conclusion to the Best WordPress Web Hosting

So, these are the few key points one must keep in mind while buying a web hosting plan. If you’re a WordPress blogger then you can look for companies who offer the best WordPress web hosting plans and make your life simpler.

The Flash Season 5 Episode 3 Breakdown | The Death of Vibe

The Flash Season 5 Episode 3 aired on October 23, 2018. The episode is titled "The Death of Vibe" with the next episode 4 coming on October 30, 2018 titled "News Flash". The episode started exactly where the last episode left off.

With the new villain Cicada, played by Chris Klein, ending the life of Vibe and faking his own arrest in the beginning. Also about the identity of this man, Cicada, we got to know that he was a father and he came back to end Vibe.

The episode started with Nora, played by Jessica Parker Kennedy, explaining the existence of Cicada. How he was never caught by the Flash, the legends of tomorrow or the league. With an easter egg about the existence of the Justice League, it is quite possible that the Arrowverse gets a league of its own.

Cicada was pretty much the biggest baddie of the lot. Being able to stay hidden from all the superheroes. So inorder to figure this mystery out, a new member of team flash was introduced.

A new member of Team Flash

Sherloque, played by Tom Cavanagh, an inter-dimensional investigator that was called to Earth-1 to catch Cicada. This person was definitely not the Harrison Wells that was shown in the previous seasons.

The Death of Vibe

The Death of Vibe was apparently a tactic played by Nora to fake  the death of Vibe aka Cisco Ramon, played by Carlos Valdes. The tactic worked handsomely as Cicada was now sure that Vibe was dead.

However the team could not get close to finding out about his identity, but the fans did see him in a closing scene.

Avengers 4 Set Selfie Leaked - First look at Pepper Potts' Rescue armor

This new leaked picture from Avengers 4 gets leaked. The leaked set selfie gives the first detailed look at Pepper Potts' Rescue armor which was rumored by fans all over the internet.

AVENGERS 4 Set Selfie Leaked - First look at Pepper Potts' Rescue armor

Avengers 4 Set Selfie Leaked

The rumored rescue armor is finally seen in this picture leaked on social media. It is quite evident that this will be part of the Avengers 4 Annihilation or endgame. I guess she will definitely be a part of both the endings rumored earlier.

Will Avengers 4 Represent Women Empowerment

But the question is, will Avengers 4 represent Women Empowerment? Since we already know that Evangeline Lilly playing Wasp from Antman and the Wasp will be there along with so many other female characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) that it is quite possible that we may possibly have more female characters than male characters in the MCU after Avengers 4.

Also notable mentioning Captain Marvel played by Brie Larson will be leading the Avengers after this. Becoming the face of the MCU after the departure of Chris Evans as Captain America.

Will Avengers 4 Represent Women Empowerment

The return that will surely take place is of Gamora played by Zoe Saldana because she is part of the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 cast.

How do I Reactivate my Disabled or Disapproved Adsense Account?

How do I Reactivate my Disabled or Disapproved Adsense Account? Getting a Google Adsense account can be a hard task but after you've established yourself as a good blogger or developer and sufficient amount of traffic is coming towards your blog, you can easily get a Google Adsense account. But this is not the worrying thing about blogging.

How do I Reactivate my Disabled or Disapproved Adsense Account?

The most worrying thing for a blogger is getting his Google Adsense account disapproved for invalid click activity which he did not commit. Afterwards how do you reactivate your disabled or disapproved adsense account? Get it Reinstated but how? Firstly we'll see what the fault really is.

Invalid Clicks

What are invalid clicks? These are basically clicks that a publisher does on his own ads. This is not allowed by Google Adsense. Basically its like taking your salary from your employer by force. 
Google Adsense is quite strict when it comes to invalid clicks. Every bloggers worst nightmare is to receive an email from Google Adsense that says your account is suspended for invalid click activity which he did not commit.

High CTR

CTR is the click through rate of ads. I wrote about it in detail in another article related to ads. Google adsense also takes a high CTR value as invalid click activity. Although it does seem wrong, but people with low website traffic tend to suffer because of this. On average a CTR of 15% is the maximum that Google Adsense allows as safe. Any higher could get you penalized for invalid click activity.

Recently, Google Adsense has become more aware of invalid clicks and tend to cut off the revenue generated from invalid clicks from publisher's accounts. This is somewhat better than losing your revenue source completely.

Solution

Any one who has a disapproved or disabled Google Adsense account can not get it back, even if his account is disabled due to invalid clicks. What someone can do is to Contact Google Adsense.
Or you can go to the contact form to give them a detailed analysis of your problem and then submit a reason for account termination. If your reason is valid there's a good chance your account will be reinstated.
The third thing that someone can do is to close his disabled/dissaproved adsense account and open a new one from the same email address.
  • Click here to go to the account cancellation form.
The fourth and final thing you can do is fill the appeal form. Don't use this form if your account has never been active, suspended for invalid traffic or policy reasons or you would like to report or appeal a policy violation or your Google Account has been disabled, rather than your AdSense account.
But there are certain rules that if not followed could lead to permanent ban from Google Adsense.
