President Obama, Nobel Prize
8.15 AM local time Air Force One landed at Oslo Airport, Gardermoen. The President and First Lady of USA walks down the stairs smiling and waving to the people who are there to welcome them to Norway.

President Obama is in town.

It's a historical day, for the first time in the Nobel Prize history is it awarded to the sitting President of USA. Of course this lead to controversies in Norway and the chairman of the committee, Mr. Torbjorn Jagland, was heavily criticized in the aftermath of the announcement. From the news I understand this lead to the same in the USA.

It’s important to understand the intensions of the Prize, its meant to reward and encourage a person or organization that is making a difference peoples life’s and welfare. Question is; has President Obamas made any difference? Some say he received it too soon, others say he hasn’t achieved anything yet, while some claim he doesn’t deserve it at all.

My opinion is that he indeed deserves it because of the goals he is chasing. These goals are ambitious and in a political aspect nearly suicidal, he could have been just another politician busy pleasing the press. He deserves the encouragement to pursue these goals, because in the end it will make a huge difference. He is a powerful man leading a powerful nation.

So, what do the Norwegians think about his visit? Let me tell you the truth, he seduced the entire nation and a massive Obama fever has hit Norway. The tradition is that people gather and parade in front of the Hotel to honor the Prize winner. Never in the history has so many people paraded as this year.

Congratulations USA! Please tell your President to use the authority of the prize wisely, and that he is welcome to visit us again.



From time to time you have probably seen testimonials regarding profitable Internet companies. They launch their Internet business; get web site traffic quickly, tons of sales and laugh all the way to the bank. It wouldn’t surprise me if you right now are thinking about all the people you’ve heard of that never made it on the World Wide Web. As a matter in fact only a handful of the online venture launches will survive.

What’s the explanation on this? Are some people luckier than others? No they aren’t, they succeed thanks to good business sense, management and teamwork. Being a successful online entrepreneur requires commitment, dedication, willingness to invest and delegate or outsource several of the tasks to service providers that knows how the get the job done right.

The dominant player is web site traffic. With no web traffic all your preparations are wasted time. Without traffic you don't get any clients, and without any customers you don't make any money. Guess you know what I mean. The more web site traffic you and your team players generate the more sales and profit you make.

Another crucial element is to convert and monetize your traffic. Perhaps 2% to 4% of the visitors bites and become buyers of your product. With this in mind it’s evident that you need a substantial quantity of visitors straight away. However you don't yearn for any kind of traffic, you want potential buyers.

How can we get more traffic online? I presume you have heard of Search Engine Optimization and free traffic generated by the search engines. That is a generous traffic source if you are prepared to hang around for 3 to 6 months before some amount of visitors start coming. In fact, we can't be sure they send any web traffic at all. Search engines are unpredictable and if your SEO goes wrong or they change their algo and slap you - you may end up getting nearly no traffic. I recently read a blog post on How to Get More Traffic about bloggers giving up their blogs for similar reasons. Spam bots ruin their inspiration and in combination with little real traffic, bloggers simply give in and leave their blogs to its own destiny. The article is posted at Increase Blog Traffic

How can you solve this? By buying your way to success - advertising is the solution to generate massive and More Traffic FAST. Consider this, in the offline world you see commercials on Television or hear them on the radio - you see ads in the newspapers and magazines and so on. Is there any reliable reason for not doing the same on Cyber Space? I believe you see where I am heading - Buy Traffic and taste the pureness of success. This will cost you, but to make money you must invest money.

Several webmasters and marketers buy PPC ads, which is okay but that is not the only traffic source you should use. Advertise your products on places that have the web traffic you want. That could be blogs, ezines, directories, portals, social media and whatever sites is appropriate for you to promote a text ad or banner. The significant thing is that you drive in the audience that is interested in your buying your products. There are places where you can advertise for free. By all means please benefit from them too. Though, when you want a large volume of targeted traffic quickly, free sources most likely won't send enough traffic on short term. My point is; Generate Traffic from Multiple Sources - this is very, very important.

I hope you enjoyed this article. It’s based upon my own experiences made in the past months. Believe me, its possible make a nice amount of money online if you treat your online business serious and follow some simple proven steps. Like every other business its hard but rewarding work :o)
