A domain name, the www.yourdomainname.tld (tld is the com, net, org, etc..), can be one a huge asset when it comes to Internet marketing. Companies have been known to pay literally millions of dollars for a domain name. Why? It's because domain names have become a huge business for making money from the Internet. There are people out there that have nothing better to do, than to sit around and buy up all of the domain names they can think of. Some are just obsessed with owning Internet real estate, while others are investing in their future. Yep, it's an investment. Why? Well, because they may have the domain name that you want bad enough to pay them more than what they paid for it. Right now, the average domain name sells for about ten bucks from a domain registrar. You can find them cheaper, and you can certainly find them much more expensive. However, if you find a domain that nobody is in possession of, you can pick it up at just about anyplace that sells domain names for under fifteen dollars.


What makes a domain name so valuable?Suppose you are selling squares. Would it make a lot of sense to have a domain name of www.circles.com? It probably would not. The reason is, those people came to that site expecting to find circles. Imagine their disappointment when all you had to offer was squares. However, what if your domain name was www.squares.com? Now you're cooking with grease! Think of all of the people that would simply type your name into their address bar, without ever even using a search engine. People have somewhat come to expect the domain name of a website to be relevant to its content. I know, I know, what about Google and Yahoo, or any other big name that has a domain that has nothing to do with its content. Well, that answer is simple. It's called "Branding." Branding is when a name, regardless of its typical meaning, becomes valuable. Usually branded names are small, and easy to remember. That is what helped them to become more popular. Quick, think of a guy's name. Was it something like John, or Bob? Why wasn't it Sebastian, or Ebenezer? It is because our simplistic little minds like to keep things simple. We cherish simple things in life, and we remember them more easily. Domain names are no different. We remember the small simple ones, and besides, they are easier to type. That is all part of branding, and unless you are lucky enough to get a hold of a name like that, and have the dough to sink into marketing it, you should probably stick to a name that describes your website's content. That's why domain names are so valuable. People buy them up, and resell them to us to make a profit, because a good name is hard to come by the promo code.


How do we choose the right domain name?First, decide if you are going to attempt to compete in the Branded name market, or if you are going straight to a name that makes sense for your website. If you are going for the branded option, more power to you, and good luck buddy! However, if you're going with a name that makes sense, sit down at your computer, and find a website that sells domain names.


Choosing a domain name for a website is tricky business. The value of that domain name will be placed squarely upon the results you get in traffic from it. Search engines play a large role in the value of a domain name. They can make or break your online presence. If a search engine considers your domain name to be relevant to your website, then that search engine may give more search results to your site. If your website does not bring in traffic, perhaps you should look at such things as the domain name. Domain names that are too long, have too many words, or are just plain hard to remember will rely on links to get traffic to you. If you can pick a relevant domain name, one that is easy to type and remember, you will not only get traffic from backlinks, but also traffic generated by the domain name. That is how you can place a value on a domain name. If it brings traffic to your site, it is priceless, and you should hang on to it. Remember the guy sitting at home waiting to buy it? He will be watching you, I promise.

Alternative energy stock portfolios are a great part of a modern investor's financial plan, due to the fac that there is so much upward potential. These make excellent long term growth investment vehicles, and the money put into them by you, the investor, serves to further the cause of implementing the alternative energy power sources that we need as we sail into the 21st century and beyond. 

Analysts predict that by 2013, the alternative energy industry will be a $13 billion dollar industry in today's dollars. This figure bespeaks an enormous return on investment. Indeed, if you were to invest in a start-up alternative energy company, you might find yourself having invested in the next Microsoft in terms of return on investment. People are fed up with the rising costs of gasolinewhile this alone is not sufficient understanding of the need for developing alternative energy sources, it is a factor which can act as a market makermeaning for you that investments in alternative energy companies makes a lot of financial sense. 

However, this does not mean that you don't first want to do some careful research into alternative energy stocks, perhaps with the help of a financial planner. A few alternative-energy companies are going after the right markets but that doesn't mean you should go buy every name in the sector. Investors need to be cautious about chasing the stocks, says Sanjay Shrestha, who is an analyst at First Albany Capital. And if you are an investor, then you know that the problem in this sector is that nearly every single one of the major players in the alternative energy for profit game are start-ups or in the very early stages of growth. This means for you that they have relatively minuscule (even if rapidly growing) sales, and no expected profitability in the near term or history of earnings for you to be able to research. This can lead to some bubbling, as with what happened to the dot-com industry at the turn of the 21st century. Bubbling in the stock market is not a good thing for investors. 

Ananlysts and financial planners can play a crucial role in helping you get it right with alternative energy investing. We don't play around in the tiny cap stocks that have technology and not much revenuethe 'hope' stocks. We invest in companies with clear cash-generation plans in place, are the words of Ben walker, who is a senior portfolio manager at the Gartmore Global Utilities fund out of London. 

Still, the outlook is very positive overalland healthy. It is good to see that the number of renewable energy funds and the amount of money flowing into these funds is increasing, according to chief executive of UK alternative elecricity supplier Good Energy Juliet Davenport. The renewable generation market is at an important stage in its development; it needs the continued support of the consumer, investor and government to ensure that it reaches its potential and really starts to make a difference to climate change.

Those born under the sign of Libra, the Scales (September 24  October 23), have a wonderful balance of traits. Theyre considered to be diplomatic and urbane, romantic and charming, idealistic and peaceable. Even their darker characteristics arent so terrible. They can be flirtatious, easily influenced and indecisive. Curiously, Libra is the only sign of the Zodiac represented by an inanimate object, the Scales. Every other sign is represented by an animal or sea creature or person. 

Libra is the very first sign of the astrologers Great Year, and occurred between 15,000 and 13,000 BCE. It marked the dawn of Man and his expression of his condition beyond basic survival mechanisms. This is the approximate date of the monumental Lascaux cave paintings. It also marks the appearance of humans in the Americas, crossing from the Bering Strait into North America. 

Like the scales of justice that represented Libra, this sun sign makes good lawyers and judges. Theyre able to stand back and look at situations with a critical, objective eye. Theyre among the most civilized of all the signs, with elegance and culture among their traits. 

As a partner, Libras are willing to bend over backwards to resolve an issue amicably. The best match for a Libra is a Gemini; theyre least compatible with Capricorns because Capricorns like a little more excitement in life, while Libras prefer a more laid-back existence. You won't find Libra sitting out all the dances that's for sure! Very easy going and likeable, you will find Libra's company a pleasure to enjoy. Even though they are outgoing, they are also surprisingly peaceful and calm of spirit.

Famous Librans include John Lennon and Jenny Lind, the famous Swedish singer. Doris Lessing, Luciano Pavarotti, Oscar Wilde and Johnny Carson are just a few of the Librans who have enriched our lives in the arts.
