why should I care about SEO?
Easy!!!!!. We all want to make money, and if you spend time blogging then you'd like to have a return on that investment. In order to monetize your blog you first have to spend some time doing Search Engine Optimization in order to increase your rankings in the different SERPS.

Hi Darren, it's Serapis Murillo (online marketing specialist for the VivaReal Network).

I've been reading your posts and have found them really cool. To give you something back, I wanted to give you a cool tip that you can turn into a blogger turorial post. It's actually something your friends at dnnseo already do but you are missing. What is it? The famous FavIcon. Not really too SEO related but it does make you look much more professional.

You personally, are currently using the played out B favicon that is standard with Blogger. Why not change it to something custom made?

So how do you create a FavIcon in Blogger.

First of all you would need to create the actual icon image using a Favicon Generator Tool. You can use many free ones. Just search for FavIcon Generator in Google and a list of tools come up. I personally use: http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/

After you've generated it you need to upload it to a hosting server. Unfortunately Blogger wont host your custom favicon.

If you don't have your own paid hosting server, Luckily there are many free hosting services out there and putting up a simple icon on one of these and calling it from your blogger blog wont use up hardly any bandwidth.

I for example call my http://english.vivareal.us/ icon which I have placed here: http://english.vivareal.us/favicon.ico

and have this icon show up in my http://casas-en-miami.blogspot.com/ Blog.

Here's how you call the Icon you need to put on your Blogger Blog From the remote hosting service.

First you go to your Blogger Design Tab.

Second you open up the Edit HTML section.

Once there you look for the following code:

< / head >

keep in mind I've used extra spacing in the above tag in order to be able to post it in this blog comment because blogger wont accept these tags in comments.

Once there you add your FavIcon Code right above the head tag: Mine is:

< link href='http://www.vivareal.us/favicon.ico' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/ico' / >

YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE ADDITIONAL SPACING IN THE ABOVE TASK keep in mind I've used extra spacing in the above tag in order to be able to post it in this blog comment because blogger wont accept these tags in comments.

Replace my URL with the URL where you put your personal favicon.ico file on the remote hosting server.

Finally, republish your blog, and presto. That's it. You will have your Blogger blog show a personalized professional Favicon instead of the standard orange and white Blogger "B".

Hope this helps. If you have any questions, or would like me to write a guest post about this or any other matter on your blog just email me.

Cheers and keep up the good work!

If you love watching advertisements, then you must love watching movie trailers. Now it’s time to download movie previews. These include the latest movie trailers. I have downloaded and collected these off download movie previews websites and can now boast of having one of the best movie preview collections. A lot of people do not know why movie previews are called trailers. In the olden days, a preview was slotted to be shown at the end of one movie and hence it was called a trailer. Movie trailers are looked upon as a preview of the film. It is supposed to give you a brief glimpse into the plot and the storyline of the film. Sometimes special footage is shot exclusively to be included in the trailers. Fully fledged movie downloads are extremely popular on the internet now. You can download just about any movie if you subscribe to their monthly package. But download movie previews have become even more popular now. There are a separate series of websites that have been created only for movie trailers. The use of trailer can also be shown in cinemas. They are seen before or after each movie and this is a form of a good advertisement. In most of the cases the movie trailers are giving much importance by the producer as this is where people will based their opinion and film choice. If the movie has a good trailer they will surely get the attention of many people. Movie preview trailers are often the best shots that are seen in the movie while, there are also cases that some footage that you can see in the movie trailer are not seen in the real movie. Before the management introduced a movie trailer in the public it needs to be polished well
