Yammer Worm Attacks Yahoo Email - Virus and Spyware Companies Say the JS-Yammer Is Easy To Remove From Computer

Yammer Worm Attacks Yahoo Email - Virus and Spyware Companies Say the JS-Yammer Is Easy To Remove From Computer

Yahoo Mail Affected

The Yamanner worm appears to be contained and has been quarantined by Yahoo.  Yamanner is a new JavaScript worm in what is considered the “wild” that exploits a vulnerability in Yahoo!'s Web-based email program, according to Symantec Security Response.  The worm spreads itself by infiltrating the Yahoo! Email contacts when the user opens an infected email. 

So far it appears only those using @yahoo.com and @yahoogroups.com addresses were impacted by the worm. Yammer also sends these email addresses to a remote server on the Internet. 

The worm exploits a vulnerability that enables scripts embedded in HTML emails to be run by the user's browser.  Normally these scripts are blocked by Yahoo Mail. Symantec says users of Yahoo! Mail Beta do not appear to be vulnerable to JS.Yamanner.  Yammer Worm Attacks Yahoo Email - Virus and Spyware Companies Say the JS-Yammer Is Easy To Remove From Computer

Working from Home: Creating your first website - How To Start Your Own Home Based Business and Make Your Own Web Pages

Business

Starting a home-based business is a huge undertaking. Creating an online presence for your business can be equally overwhelming. Where do you begin to learn the basics of creating your first website? It’s actually much simpler than you’d think. Listed below are a few tips and tricks to make your first website pain-free.

First, you’ll need a Domain Name. A domain name is what your website visitors will type in to visit your website. For example, the domain name that you would type in to find Christian Work at Home Moms is www.CWAHM.com ­ “CWAHM” being the actual domain name portion of the website address.

You can purchase a domain name for less than $9.00 a year at places across the internet, such as www.GoDaddy.com. On the main page of GoDaddy.com you’ll find a spot where you can search to see if the domain name that you’d like to purchase is available. You want the domain name that you choose to be descriptive and easy to remember.

Local Real Estate Marketing

For realtors the Internet can no longer be ignored. Significant numbers of home buyers on going online to do their preliminary research for real estate and agents. Recent surveys suggest over 50%. I personally know a number of local realtors, and it is interesting to see how some are easily adapting to this media, while others are sitting on the sidelines wondering why they are seeing a decrease in prospective buyers.

The Internet is not going away, and if someone plans to make real estate a viable career they must incorporate online marketing in order to not only succeed, but to survive. So how can realtors cost-effective connect with potential customers? In addition to MLS listings, they can reach a very targeted audience through search engine marketing. There are basically two forms of search marketing, organic and pay per click advertising.  Search Marketing for Realtors ­ Reaching the Top!


Local Internet Marketing - A Lesson From Curacao!

Local Internet Marketing - A Lesson From Curacao!

Fred Waters

I just spent a relaxing week in Curacao, an island off the coast of Venezuela. We stayed at some quaint apartments overlooking a bay called the Spanish Waters. This place is really off the beaten path. Our day started with Costa Rican coffee on the patio only a few feet from the water. Big Sigh!

The inn is owned by a charming couple, Raul and Sylvia. He gives scuba diving instructions and she teaches Salsa dance lessons. The name of the place is called the Limestone Holiday in case you're looking for an ideal location to rejuvenate.

I was talking to the owners and they asked what I did for a living. That is not always an easy answer, but to simplify the response I said Internet marketing. That answer always stimulates interest, especially from local business owners. Now I originally found this quaint inn through the Internet. In fact, it kept popping up on a number of different keyword searches. They proceeded to tell me how they use to spend considerable money advertising offline, and the results were not all that impressive. Local Internet Marketing - A Lesson From Curacao!

Social Networking - The Next Great Marketing Medium?

Social Networking - The Next Great Marketing Medium?

myspace screen-shot

There has been a virtual explosion of social networking sites in the past couple of years.  Even the big players like Google, Yahoo and MSN are getting into it.  With so much interest in how social networks work, one begins to wonder if there is marketing potential within these social networks?

I’ve been watching social networking for some time now.  In fact I’m a member of various social networking sites including MySpace and LinkedIn just to name two. I joined partly because I wanted to see what they were, but more importantly to see what impact social networking would have on SEM in the coming years. I’ve been a member of various services for some time and the reach these sites have is incredible.

Have you ever wanted a solution to a problem, and even though you feel like you have been asking over and over for help…it feels like no one is listening to you? Then one day there it is! Someone has a simple, easy to understand answer that provides you with the perfect solution to your dilemma!

Ironically on the day “A Couple of Chicks E-Distribution Marketing” officially launched our New Web Analytic Tool, I woke up to read a brilliant article The Long Tail and Analytics written by Rob Sullivan.  He addressed the burning issue that all SEM firms have…. “As a search engine marketer we need to not only focus on those high traffic more generic words, but also put some effort towards lower traffic, but more than likely higher converting keywords.” The left wing (and the right wing!) address Web Analytics and the solution

Website Marketing Strategy Tips

Sally

Promoting your site on a shoestring can be done - but you will have to roll up your sleeves. It takes time, smart thinking and a willingness to really be in communication with your audience. Take notes from The Cluetrain Manifesto:
 
"If you only have time for one clue this year, this is the one to get...
 
"These markets are conversations. Their members communicate in language that is natural, open, honest, direct, funny and often shocking. Whether explaining or complaining, joking or serious, the human voice is unmistakably genuine. It can't be faked.
 
"Most companies, on the other hand, only know how to talk in the soothing, humorless monotone of the mission statement, marketing brochure, and your-call-is-important-to-us busy signal. Same old tone, same old lies. No wonder networked markets have no respect for companies unable or unwilling to speak as they do. Website Marketing Strategy Tips

The Sage RSS Feed Reader

The Internet has become the most amazing tool for disseminating information and research.  It is used in hospital emergency rooms in an effort to diagnose disease.  It is used by companies to communicate and improve efficiency.  So what is the next big thing?

The next big thing will likely be Really Simple Syndication (RSS).  This will end up taking the place of newsletters because of its effectiveness.  There will be no need to give away your email address and risk unneeded spam.  You can narrow your interests and subscribe to specific information that interests you.

Future of RSS is Not Blogs but with Corporate Communications

Future of RSS is Not Blogs but with Corporate Communications

The RSS Past

Blogs vaulted RSS into the limelight but are unlikely to be the force that sustains RSS as a communication medium. The biggest opportunities for RSS are not in the blogosphere but as a corporate communication channel.

Even now, businesses that were initially reluctantly evaluating RSS are beginning to realize the power and benefit of the RSS information avenue. The inherent capacity for consumers to select the content they wish to receive will be the driving mechanism for keeping advertisements to a minimum and content quality consistent.

Copyright Issues Concerning RSS Feeds and Web Publishing

Copyright Issues Concerning RSS Feeds and Web Publishing

Copyright Debate

RSS is commonly defined as really simple syndication. So, this means that any material contained in a feed is available for syndication, right? Well no, not exactly. It means that the content contained in an RSS feed is in a format that is syndication friendly, if the copyright holder allows for syndication. Offering a feed for syndication does not in fact grant any legal rights to anyone to reuse the feeds content beyond what the Copyright laws grant as Fair Use.

In practice, while your feed might legally be protected, you could literally spend weeks attempting to protect the contents of your feed. Legal gray areas are introduced with Search Engines indexing feeds and RSS Feed Directories including copywritten feeds, in their categorized directories. How do you distinguish between a legitimate search engine, RSS directory and someone simply reproducing the contents of a feed for personal gain? Legally how can you defend against one and not the other?

Feed For All Software

We are taught to recycle paper, cans, bottles and plastic but marketers rarely discuss the value of repackaging and repurposing content. Publishers and marketers alike have embraced content syndication and RSS but few have considered the value beyond the actual syndication. Consider an alternative communication channel that reaches a new or different audience.

Repurposing and repackaging content or information so that it can be consumed through a variety of mediums is not a new concept. Many businesses today sight increased communication as a common goal.

Security and RSS Issues

Security and RSS Issues

Internet Security

Instant RSS is growing at a lightening speed. What was once only known as a "techie tool", RSS is becoming a tool that is continuously being used by the general population. Along with the good comes, the not so good. And while some have mentioned the emergence of RSS spam, where content publishers dynamically generate nonsensical feeds stuffed with keywords, the real concern relates to security. While an annoyance to the search engines, spam in RSS feeds pales in comparison to the possible security concerns that could be in RSS' future. Security and RSS Issues

Branding has been called the most powerful idea in business, yet few companies consciously take control of their brand and create it. Your brand is formed by the visual, emotional, rational, and cultural image associated with your company or product.  Now that so many people are reading news and researching products and services online, their first point of contact with your brand is most likely to be online.

Brand perception online has been linked to search engine visibility. Studies such as the IAB research shows that searchers regard companies that are placed on page one in the search engines as the major players in the field.  Really Simple Syndication RSS and Public Relations PR and Online Brand Perception

Well, you've joined the others and have created a blog. It is time to tell the world about your online journal. Most blog services generate an RSS feed. If your blogging software does not create an RSS feed, consider using software like FeedForAll  to create an RSS feed. Like blogs, RSS is growing in popularity and is a great way to spread the word about a new blog.

Syndication is conceptually simple. It allows publishers to distribute content that can be displayed in another location or context. Using RSS, publishers are able to easily create and disseminate content feeds that include news headlines, blog summaries and related links. RSS is the defined syndication standard that has become mainstream. All types of information are now available in a syndicated format.
