So, it’s a great way to great these extra bucks. But there is a limitation that is being applied on the invitation, in a single day you can invite only six friends to join it.

sorry you have run out of requests

Anyways, if all your referrals join in a day you still earn $6 for the day, and another six dollars the next day.

Note: You should have to be a registered PayPal user with a valid address and phone number in India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, or Vietnam. As this offer is for Asia Pacific region, you should be holding the above mentioned details.

New changes and features in Alexa Dashboards

Since the start of colorsofnet.com we have been covering Alexa regularly on our blog. Whether its related to our personal ranking or incomplete dashboards of Alexa, we have always found it interesting and have decided to cover it very seriously.

Dashboard Change column

Today their is a change factor that is being implemented in the dashboards, that shows you the actual change that is being made to your stats i.e. the change in your rank, traffic, time on site and other features.  This new feature will show the traffic ranking even it’s above 100k, so these rankings will be daily but will not be represented graphically. The images below compares the past dashboard look and the new dashboard look.

Following are the newly added Search Terms with a High Web-Wide Ranking Driving Traffic for the site.

Search Terms with a High Web-Wide Ranking Driving Traffic

Keywords that generate a significant number of queries on internet search engines and drive traffic to colorsofnet.com. Ordered by the global popularity of the search terms, in combination with the number of website hits generated on colorsofnet.com.

Well these new stats are very helpful in knowing what the world is searching for and where are you missing. These new stats is a greater and a deeper breakdown of your keywords. From this i was finally able to decide over the categories that i should be focusing on with full dedication. As every page has a reputation that is being followed by the search engines and various social networks, so focus over them.

Link Twitter to your LinkedIn Profile

Twitter Linkedin Their is recent development from LinkedIn, they have merged twitter in the profile for their users. Now your colleagues and associates will be updated of your recent activities. Its very handy for developing your professional relation by showing your current status and the work you are involved in. I find it very useful in selecting an appropriate candidate for your business needs. With twitter they will be able to know the person much better in social life also.

We’re delighted to announce that LinkedIn now works with Twitter. Try these new features on for size:

  1. Make your Twitter account visible on your profile
  2. Use #in or #li to share posts from Twitter to your LinkedIn status
  3. Add the Tweets app to share your Twitter activity on your profile

So, i strongly recommend LinkedIn users to link their twitter id to their respective profiles. Specially, its a delight for the job searchers.
