2. Username Check

Because there are so many new social networks of quality launching, it is wise to make sure that your brand username , company username or your personal branding username is not “highjacked.  With the username check you can quickly find out if anyone else is using your “brand” on any of the major and a lot of the minor social networks.

3. BackType

Back Type is a terrific tool for tracking blog comments.  Monitoring blog posts can be a daunting task at times, by using  this handy tool  you can search comments that mention your “brand” but as a bonus, it will let you search for comments (good or bad) left by a particular person. Add to that, Whenever you write a comment on a blog or other website, BackType attributes it to you. BackType will give your comments a home where they can be discovered, followed and shared.

As bloggers we are trained in optimizing  our content to get ourselves noticed by the search engines as well as our human readers.  Another way to be successful in our blogging on the net, is to also optimize our  computers.  Many people do not realize how much they junk they collect in their travels around the blogosphere.  What you notice is that everything slows down to a crawl and you end up getting frustrated.

CCleaner is a freeware application that many many people use successfully.

Last updated on 29th September 2008 New
Over 195 million downloads!!!

CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. But the best part is that it’s fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! :)

We did find that it takes more time than what they say, in fact, it make takes several seconds to a couple of minutes, but it is well worth the effort.  :-)

Download your copy of CCleaner today.

I am sure that you read that title and went huh?

I just had to pass this on to you… in case you didn’t know this great tip -

Success BlogNet - My Daily Web Journal

While reading different bloggers blogs,  I came accross  My Daily Web Journal.

This very smart blogger had this great tip regarding cell phones ”

“Did you know that you can use your cell phone when you’ve locked your keys in the car with an automated unlock mechanism, by calling home and having a family member use the duplicate auto-unlock mechanism close to the phone while you hold your cell phone within one foot of your car door. When out of your service area, you can use the worldwide universal emergency number 112 even when the keypad is locked.”

It really does pay, to not just look at a blog, but read what they have to say!

To Your Success,

At Success BlogNet, we want to help and inform our readers of any issues that will help bring success.

Disclosure Policies are important to anyone who has a blog for the main reason that it allows the bloggers to self identify any affiliation, payment or other conflicts of interests that may influence the content of a blog.

There are a couple of ways that a responsible blogger can get a disclosure policy on their blog.

The first one is to create a write up on your own. Your disclosure policy should include some details as in a copyright statement, declaring a financial relationship ( for example if you are an affiliate), legal disclaimers and talk about any related content on a 3rd party website.


If you are not into writing legalese, then your second option is to use a free service like Disclosure Policy.org. They have created a very simple way for people to protect themselves and make their blog transparent to the reader.

The Third way to create a Disclosure policy, when you host your own blog then we urge you to get a “Disclosure Policy Plugin™ for Wordpress™”
Take the time to read all about this plugin from the potential Usage to the license requirements.
If Your really can not wait to get through all the written material, then click on download and this will take you to the page of the “Disclosure Policy Plugin™ for Wordpress™” .

Disclosure Policy Plugin - Simple Interface influenced by Pageflakes

There is a fourth way and that is to do nothing. We at Success BlogNet urge you to not let this fourth choice become your first choice.

To Your Success,

Success BlogNet Team

A blogger who is with Success BlogNet has written a blog post that I quickly wanted to share.  Her blog is called  Like an Eagle -  Soar.   The title of her post  is Follow Your Dreams and it is well work looking at as well as the comment I made to her.

All to often we lose our dreams because of the mind set of others.  When it comes to working online whether it is affiliate marketing or blogging, you are going to find those who will be so supportive and giving but the reality is you will also find those who will try to crush you.  Keep your focus, your mindset and your balance.  Follow your dreams and reach for the stars.

To Your Success,

Being the smart person that he is, Walt from All Sports on the Web, wanted to know our opinion.

When we looked into this “advertising”, on the surface it sure looked good…it has a fairly good page rank the site looks professional and lets face it…this person took the time and trouble to look into Walt’s  Squidoo lens.  The numbers cited are indeed on target.

Considering that we want our bloggers to be successful, we decided to check further into this and digged deeper to see what others had to say good or bad and this is what we found: (more…)
