I'm currently interning for a sales company who are hoping to launch a new website, similiar to careerbuilder or monster, and it's my job to get traffic to the site. Spending money for advertising is not really any option, unless it is just completely fantastic and cheap. How can get the best of SEO on a tight budget? Any advice would be great!

I recently changed hosts for one of my web sites. Signed up for a three-year term and all the bells and whistles. When I logged into cPanel, the account came with five e-coupons for advertising: Google AdWords, Facebook, Bing/Yahoo!, Miva, and Bidvertiser. I am definitely not going to turn down an opportunity to do some marketing. In any case, I am curious about the Facbook advertising. I created my campaign and specified the user interests, but it felt strange not having to specify keywords. Do ads appear in a user's browser just because they have indicated an interest in the …

Microsoft has revealed a new, more comprehensive street view system, dubbed Street Slide, set to compete with Google's Street View and Bing Maps' Streetside.[ATTACH]16203[/ATTACH]According to [URL="http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/kopf/street_slide/index.html"]Microsoft[/URL], the Google and Bing systems only allow users to view city streets via an immersive 360-degree panorama or "bubble." And users can travel down the street only by jumping from one bubble to another, creating pixelated images of close-ups and making it impossible to view a whole city block at one time. But Street Slide uses what Microsoft calls "multi-perspective strip panoramas," combining "bubbles" with panoramas. "We demonstrate a seamless transition between bubbles and …

Is it professionally ethical to advertise the name of the web developer/web development company on a client's web site when the developer has designed the site? I ask because I built a web site for a local non-profit and shared it with a friend. My friend said that my name should be on it and that she's seen sites with the developer's/development company's name credited on them ("Site designed by..."). So, is this right? Can I plaster my company's name on a client's site so that I get free publicity? Thanks in advance for the response.

However, if you are dead then expect to be inundated with ads.
