Fancy getting your friends to join you on Skyrock? Using your Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo! Mail it couldn't be easier. All you need to do is head to 'My Friends' > 'Settings' More friends and you can instantly upload your friend list. Don't worry though, if you don't have Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo! Mail you can still invite your pals by manually entering their email address.
Do you have a great blog that you want to share with the ENTIRE FREAKING WORLD?!
Here are some tips to propel your blog to top of search engines like Google. You'll have even more fans and visitors!
* Network: Provide the link to your blog on all the sites you visit. For example, if you're totally addicted to Harry Potter and have some articles dedicated to this topic in your blog, add the link to your blog on a Harry Potter fansite or forum. Or if you know someone who created a site about Harry, have that person stick your blog on their site. Be sure to explain what your site is about so that more people will come.
* Clarity: You've gotta tell things as they are when you describe your blog. Try to be precise. If your blog is about possible Harry Potter conspiracy theories, explain it as clearly as you can and it'll go up in the search engines. If you aren't precise enough, your blog probably won't get picked up on by most search engines.
*Describe your pictures: This is really a SPECTACULAR way to get picked up in image searches. Instead of writing "photo1" or "lovethatbabe", write "me making cupcakes" or "Brad Pitt"

You're surfing blithely on the web, as usual, when suddenly, something VERY, VERY wrong jumps out at you from the screen. Photos or writings that you authored have been hijacked by other bloggers, mocking your works, or worse, claiming them as their own!
Welcome to the Internet ;=)
Here's how to avoid the problem:
- Protect your work Leave your mark on your pictures, or art. Sign your pictures with your username, so that it's present even if people steal your works. - Respect other people's work Don't do unto others what you don't want to be done unto you! Give credit to the people who inspired you, or whom you copied pictures from, by citing their username or Skyrock address.
You're having difficulty finding an article among the 500+ in your blog. Why not create a page summing up all of them using permalinks?
A permalink is the unique Internet address attributed to each article. Just click on the "#" that's found on the lower left of each article, and the address will appear in your browser address bar. It's practical for citing specific articles,or copy it in your own article summary.
