Question by valuecom: Does anyone have any good ideas for a “catchy” name for a Internet marketing business??
I own a web business, I have been doing web development fo over 15 years. I do fairly well at it.
I want to start a separate off-shoot of the business for web design sparate from the local search directories I own in Atlanta.
I play around in here sometimes so I thought I would see if anyone might have any suggestions.

i’ve noticed more companies using common words, with a shorter, uncommon spellings. take “flikr” for instance. i’ve always liked the word “focus” spelled “FOKUS”. that’s how some countries in europe spell it.

chris.pirillo.com Archaeme over at LockerGnome.net asked, “I hear a lot of people complaining about Comcast (service, throttling, etc.), but why don’t they use another ISP?” This is a good question, and the answer may surprise you. Even in this modern Internet age, a good Internet service provider is hard to come by. In most areas, service is only available from a select few with a single provider dominating the market. There are hundreds of small companies out there offering “unlimited” bandwidth and advertising high-speed connections only to fail at delivering on their promise. This leaves you with the option of forking over large sums of money to receive reasonably stable and consistent service or having to clench your teeth as your connection is regularly interrupted in order to save a few bucks.

Question by ngaai: What area should I start working on in Internet Marketing?
I am 24. I play guitars (advanced) and the piano. I am good at programming and puzzle solving. I am pretty much everything a perfect computer geek needs to be. I am planning to start off a company before which I will need to get a feel of how marketing works on the internet. I would like to create niche blogs but I don’t see where I should start and what topic would be ideal for me. Could you suggest a way for me to get things going.

Blog about what you know to start with and get a feel for it. Get a couple of free blogs at WordPress on the go.

Question by Lina: What is a decent amount of internet traffic?
I started a blog a couple months ago and I just installed Statcounter on it to track my visitors.
I put it on my page about 3 and a half hours ago and I have 927 hits, 431 unique visits, 395 first time visits, 36 returning visits.
What type of traffic do bloggers usually aim for? I put it on there because I was curious but I don’t really know if I’m doing average, or good or really good.
Anyone know what good numbers are?
Uh, now it’s 940…
Oh and I made sure to exclude my ip address so it doesn’t count me. I have a tendency to refresh the page every two seconds

I guess it depends on what you’re trying to achieve with your site…if you’re doing it just to be doing it, then traffic really doesn’t matter. But if you’re doing it to make money, it depends on your target audience, but a good number to consistently make money for me is around 5,000-10,000 hits per day…that’s different for everyone, but with that number I can usually make around $ 300-$ 500 a day.
Check my source for another way that you can drive more traffic to your site.

It’s important to track the results of any marketing program to know what is working. With web traffic analysis, you can quickly find out where your website traffic is coming from, and which visitors are buying your products. This is the fifth in a series of informal talks about Internet marketing.
