Is it better to have Less Adsense Units to Make More Revenue in 2020?

Guest Post: Samantha

Last Updated: 6th January, 2020

Less Adsense to make more money

In this article, we will explore the possibility of having less adsense units to make more revenue. However, we need to first understand how adsense works.

I love writing content online, and I also love Google Adsense. Adsense is a great program that helps online publishers earn revenue from their content. Since I do run my sites as a commercial enterprise (meaning I do earn revenue that exceeds expenses), I do take the time to try and maximize my revenues.

So I have been researching ways to increase Google Adsense revenue, and I stumbled upon an interesting idea: Less Adsense ads per page may increase total revenue.

Do Less Adsense Units Per Page Make More Revenue (Money) Per Click?

First let me back up and explain the theory on how this supposedly works. Adsense advertisers use a “bidding” process to bid for their ad placements.  The highest bidder for a particular phrase or keyword will have the top ad placement, at the top ad unit that first appears in your page’s HTML code.

The more ad units (and ad spaces) you have on your page, the more bids there will be. So the theory works by saying if you only have 1 Adsense unit on your page (as opposed to the maximum 3), you will increase your revenue since the only bidders that show up will have higher costs per click.

To illustrate how this will work, let me give a brief example:

If you used all 3 Adsense units (that show both image and text ads), and you placed a large skyscraper, and 2 large square sized ads on your page. In this example, you can have up to 13 different ad slots (5 text on the skyscraper, and 4 text on the large squares each).

Of course, sometimes the large square or skyscraper may be an image ad, in which case only 1 ad slot counts. But assuming they are all text ads, there may be as many as 13 different ad slots.

So if there are this many slots on your 3 Adsense units, the clicks may be priced as follows:

  1. $2.50
  2. $1.75
  3. $1.34
  4. $1.05
  5. $0.93
  6. $0.83
  7. $0.77
  8. $0.71
  9. $0.65
  10. $0.50
  11. $0.41
  12. $0.20
  13. $0.08

As you can see, if someone clicked on the last Adsense unit on your page, and clicked a lower ad, it would result in a lower click earning. However, if they clicked the top ads, it would result in a higher click earning.

The theory then goes, that if you only use 1 or 2 Adsense units on your page, you will reduce the number of low paying clicks.

So in the other example, assuming you only have 1 large Adsense square (with both image and text ads set), you could have 1-4 ads slots displaying on the page only (depending on whether an image or text ad shows). The costs per click may look something like this:

  1. $2.50
  2. $1.75
  3. $1.34
  4. $1.05

Thus, the one ad would result in the highest click, and you would earn more revenue. I researched this and looked at a lot of threads and posts by other bloggers and webmasters online, and I was eager to see if this worked. Some said it worked great, others said they earned less using this method.

On one forum, an actual Adsense advisor recommeded people use the maximum number of ad units (3), and that they use the larger formats to maximize revenue. So needless to say, there was a lot of conflicting information, so I thought I had better try this myself.

Did My Adsense Revenue Increase or Decrease with Less Ad Units?

I spent a few hours preparing this experiment across all of my blogs/sites so I could get a good feel for whether or not it was working. So I took down all ads except for 1 large square.

I then waited eagerly to see if it was going to change my revenue earnings. The first day earned a normal amount of revenue (it was only 1/2 day actually, since the first half had the normal amount of ads). So it seemed as if perhaps it was working.

The second day seen a noticeable drop in earnings. The next day was again low. Then the next. The difference was about 5-10 from my average earnings. Then it went slightly up compared to the drop the next day, but still not up to the usual earning amount.

In fact, this theory was quickly disproved when I saw some very low “clicks” that came in on one of my other sites. I then realized that even though Adsense and Adwords does use a bidding process, there are other factors at play.

I then experimented some more, and changed it to 2 small ad units (200X200 square), and added one on top and one on the bottom of my page. This did not make much of an impact either, and the earnings were still low.

I let this experiment run for about a week and a half to make sure that it wasn’t just a small dip that was unrelated to the ad change (and Adense does seem to have cycles of higher earning days sometimes). It wasn’t. My traffic was the same as before I tried the experiment, and the low costs per click made me realize that the theory simply didn’t work.

Therefore, I then placed all 3 ad units back on the page (set to both image and text ads), and used the 3 largest formats (large skyscraper, and 2 large squares).

Then, within a day or two my earnings were back up. In fact, they continued to climb and are still slowly creeping up even today by a few dollars each month.

Conclusion: Less Ads Do NOT Equal More Revenue with Adsense Always

I did try this on all of my websites to get a strong idea of whether or not it was working. Unfortunately, on every site the earnings were down. I received less clicks, and less revenue per click in many cases as well.

Therefore, it seems as if the Adsense Advisors were correct: By using the 3 Adsense units, and using the 3 largest ad types, you can increase your overall revenue.

So I added all of the ads back on my sites, and decided to just focus on writing more content and getting more traffic. I feel that for now I have “tweaked” my ads enough to maximize their earning potential, and now I just need to build up my site’s content, provide useful articles, and build traffic.

Why Do More Ads Still Equal More Revenue Then?

The theory of “less is more” certainly seems logical, but I think the reason it didn’t work is because it left out a few important facts. First, you have to assume that Adsense will display the full amount of ads every time a page loads on your site. It doesn’t.

Many times I will see that for a large square, only 2 text ads will display. Of course when an image ad appears, it is only 1 ad. So you could have all 3 ad units on your page, and still only have as few as 3-5 ad units appearing.

Add that to the fact that the larger ads are more appealing to advertisers since they can get more “space” on your site to show their product. This increases competition and “bids” for the larger ads.

Also, the more ads that appear on your page, the more likely a person is going to see something they are interested in. Therefore it is no secret that there is a strong correlation with number of ads and number of clicks.

I suppose the Adsense advisor that posted on the site realized all of this, and that is how they knew that from experience, more ads will help you maximize and optimize your Adsense earnings.

Of course, every person should experiment themselves with different sized units, colors, and number of ads on their own site. Some people may receive a different result than I did. But overall, I know that I will maintain the 3 full ads on my site until something changes…

100% Tested – Mobile SEO Optimization in 2021

Last Updated: 7th September, 2020

Optimize your Web Pages for Mobile

This new article will show you everything you need to know about mobile SEO.

First, I’ll show you why mobile optimization is more important than ever.

Then, I’ll help you get your website ready for Google’s mobile-first index.

Sound good? Let’s dive right in…

There are several blogging trends that every blogger should be on board with if they want to be popular in the near future. Of these, mobile access is one of the most important. More and more readers are viewing blogs and sites on the go now, so it’s not feasible to ignore this aspect. The more mobile-friendly you make your site; the more people are likely to engage with it. In fact, many bloggers and website owners are now opting to perfect their mobile sites. Only then would they move on to a regular computer and laptop access. However, it’s not so easy to make your blog an optimal candidate for mobile access. If you’re interested in how to get started, keep reading below:

Streamlining Is Best

First off all, you need to make sure your site doesn’t have a host of advertisements scattered all over the place. These may leave your pages navigational on a large screen, but not on a smartphone. If any mobile user sees a plethora of ads to be closed down first, they would very likely scurry off.

You also need to make sure that your pictures aren’t too large. Images of very high resolution or quality can take their sweet time when loading on mobile sites. Either do away with them or replace them with smaller images that would do just as well. As for Flash and Java, we would recommend avoiding them for now. Many smartphones just aren’t up to the task of supporting them yet.

Also, streamline your long posts; don’t delete them, but break them up into bold headings and several paragraphs. A block of text is not very appealing to the modern Internet user in any case. A smartphone user simply would not get their head wrapped around your long rambles while on the subway.

In short, make things as easy for a mobile user as possible. Don’t make them have to tap tiny buttons or put them at risk of visiting dubious sites through your blog. Moreover, make your content understandable even when one is just skimming.

Perfect Your Menus

Most of your content should be as much on one page as possible. Scrolling is the main form of navigation that smartphone and tablets users are comfortable with. Of course, you would need several pages on a mobile site. For this, it is essential that you keep your menus very precise and clear-cut.

Simply put; don’t make you menus hard to find or to click upon. Tapping is not as precis as clicking, and you want to accommodate your mobile users as much as possible.

Responsive Design

Everyone would have used responsive design at some time or another, even if they’re not aware of it. Basically, you need to make sure your site or blog knows what device is being used to access it. Hence, it would show different layout according to whether a smartphone user is a viewer or a laptop user. For instance, the website would minimize horizontal scrolling when it detects a smartphone user. This may sound a bit scary, but is actually a great way to optimize and customize automatically.

In fact, customizing your blog in this way doesn’t require wiring lines of code or rewiring your system. Blogging platforms such as WordPress now have a responsive theme option to make your blog mobile-friendly with just a few clicks. For other platforms of your own design, you may need to apply some knowledge of HTML or CSS.

Integrate Instagram

photos are essential for drawing in and maintaining the attention of your visitors (especially in longer blogposts), but legit photos come with hefty licenses and, as I mentioned above, if they’re too big or in the wrong format they’re not guaranteed to actually load on a mobile platform. But none of that matters if they’ve already been formatted to work on mobile devices via a third party site like Instagram.

With the help of a number of different Instagram widgets, you can easily stream your Instagram photos right into your blogposts (again, it’s extra-easy on WordPress). Alternatively, all public Instagram photos come with an embed code these days, so it’s easy to spot a photo you like on a friend’s feed and post it to your blog while still giving credit where credit is due.

Keep it Safe and Secure

As the recent Heartbleed episode has proven, security is a huge problem on the internet in general, but it’s all the more so in the Wild West of mobile devices. A recent report from the mobile security company, Lookout, entitled “Mobile Threats, Made to Measure,” cites adware, chargeware and malware as the greatest risks to mobile users, especially those in countries where regulations are sparse. You can keep your own site from getting hacked and help to safeguard your mobile visitors by taking the following steps:

  • Stay Up to Date. Has your platform notified you of an update? Great. Do it, now. Oftentimes updates contain patches for security flaws.
  • Change Your Username and Password. Especially if your username is “admin” and your password is “12345.” It’s also a good idea to change your password on a regular basis.
  • Scrutinize Your Advertisers. Ads are often targets for malware, so grill any advertisers on the security measures they take before signing up.
  • Dole Out Admin Privileges With Care. Sure you love your boyfriend now, but in 3 months? Yeah, you might not want him to have admin privileges to your blogsite. Keep it limited to the absolute minimum users.
  • Be Wary of Photos. They can hide malicious code. That’s why the Instagram trick mentioned above is a much better idea, as is purchasing photos through a respectable stock photo site.
  • Stick With Widgets. Applications can be filled with junk, so when you’re looking to give your site a little more functionality or wow factor, stick with the widgets already vetted by your blog platform.

Test Your Blog

Of course, responsive design isn’t perfect, and it’s not 100% guaranteed it will resize to just the right size for every kind device and screen (hey, give the code a break, the mobile ecosystem is pretty diverse). As a first step, gather all of your friends with iOS, Android and even Blackberry smartphones and tablets to see how it all works. Does it look nice? Is all of the text readable? Do pictures and videos load across devices? Do the social buttons work?

An even better idea is to use an emulator — a tool that lets you simply and quickly test across an even broader range of devices.

Wrap-Up

Mobile usage is only expected to increase as time goes on. It is up to us bloggers to stay updated and make it easy for our viewers to find us. Optimizing your blog for mobile access would not only increase organic traffic but make it easier for your fans and readers to keep track of your output. So get with the times today and start optimizing as soon as possible!

SEO Increase Adsense Revenue in 2020 by Auto Ads

SEO – How to Optimize your Web Pages for Mobile

Increase Adsense Revenue in 2020 by Auto Ads

Use Google Adsense Auto Ads For Better Placement

Last Updated: 7th September, 2020

Google_Adsense

Google Adsense is considered as one of the best ad programs for publishers. The is a program run by Google in order to increase revenue. This allows publishers in the Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, or interactive media advertisements, that are targeted to site content and audience.And now that the inclusion of Google Adsense Auto ads, the placement of the ads has become easier.

Google Adsense Auto Ads – Let Google Decide the Placement

On February 21, 2018, Google Adsense introduced AdSense Auto ads, a powerful new way to place ads on your site. Auto ads use machine learning to make smart placement and monetization decisions on your behalf, saving the time. The new update involves artificial intelligence technology.

Perks of Adsense Auto Ads

Google Auto ads are utilizing artificial intelligence to automatically manage ad placements and ad optimization for the publishers.

The ban has lifted

Before the Auto Ads update came in there was a rule that the website that has less content and more ads on the page was used to get banned. But with this update, now that the Google will decide what ads will be placed where the question of banning the sites is never going to arise.

Optimization

Using machine learning, Auto ads show ads only when they are likely to perform well and provide a good user experience.

Revenue Opportunities

Auto ads will identify any available ad space and place new ads there, potentially increasing your revenue. This is because earlier there was a restriction of placing only 3 ads on the website. And now that the Google’s machine learning technology will be deciding the whole subject matter, the revenue generation is going to be pretty high now.

Easy to use

With Auto ads you only need to place the ad code on your pages once. When you are ready to use new features and ad formats, simply turn them on and off with the flick of a switch. There is no need to change the code again.

Google AdSense offers ads in the following types:

Display Ads

Display Ads are more of banner ads available in various dimensions from the full page leaderboard (728×90) size to a small button (125×125) size.

Text Ads

Text Ads are similar to display ads. It shows text instead of media content. Typically a wide skyscraper (160×600) size ad will be a set of 3 to 4 ads showing each ad in a single unit

Video Ads

These type of ads display rich video content to the audience. With its call-to-action button, the visitor gets redirected to the desired page.

Mobile Ads

Regular display or text ad units will also be displayed in the high-end mobile devices since they have a built-in web browser capable of running JavaScript.

According to Techcrunch, One black hole (and potential pitfall) is the fact that Google’s Auto Ads seems to decide just how many ads it will place on a page, something you would have had more control over without it.

Also, one thing to keep in mind is that, if you have already placed ads on the page, the Adsense Auto will detect these ads and place the remaining ads as per its calculation.

What are the disadvantages of the new update

End of the blame game

Now the publishers have no authority to decide where they want to place the ad. they won’t be able to track the proper revenue details. Usually, an ad gets more clicks if placed n header or in middle of the content. But with the Google’s new algorithm decides to place it somewhere at the bottom, then there are high chances that the ad will not receive any clicks. This will make it clear to the publisher that from where the revenue has become so less.

According to Google, the Auto Ads will eventually increase the revenue of the publisher. But now the publisher himself is not getting the liberty to decide where he wants to place the ad. Therefore, there is going to be a disruption in revenue generation.

Disturbance in page design

This is going to be the most disapproving element for all the publishers. Now that they won’t be able to choose the ad placement, there is going to be a disturbance in the page design. Google can decide to place the ad anywhere on the page as per the content size, so this will totally disturb the page setting and its look. And there are high chances that the visitor just goes off from the site.

How to use Google AdSense Auto ads:

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. In the left navigation panel, visit My ads and select Get Started.
  3. On the “Choose your global settings” page, select the ad formats that you’d like to show and click Save.
  4. On the next page, click Copy code.
  5. Paste the ad code between the < head > and </ head > tags of each page where you want to show Auto ads.
  6. Auto ads will start to appear on your pages in about 10-20 minutes.

So now that you know the positives and negatives of the Auto Ad, what is going to be your next step? Well, to make it more clear, there are more advantages to it than disadvantages. In all of this one thing, you have to make sure that your content has to be of uppermost quality.

Google has over 2 million publisher relationships. In order provide defences against bad actors, it invests heavily in technology which enables them to monitor the clicks and impressions they receive. Also to scan the partners’ sites.

These tools operate at the click, page, site, and account levels, so it can pick up bad content and bad practices (like non-human traffic) at a very granular level.

So now that the Google Adsense Auto Ads have become independent and taking up logical decisions to eliminate the bad actors, the process is going to get streamlined. And most importantly the good ads are going to get justice. With the changing technology, everything changes. But always try to embrace the change and work for the betterment of your business.

Best Tips for Travelling to Atlantis Bahamas – 2020

Atlantis_Bahamas

Last Updated: 7th September, 2020

Due to Covid 19, Atlantis Paradise Island Resort is temporarily closed until further notice. https://www.atlantisbahamas.com/travel-updates

Best Months to Visit Bahamas

Atlantis Bahamas Tips: The best time to visit the Bahamas is from mid-December to mid-April, the country’s peak season. Though temperatures here are great year-round (they rarely dip below 60 degrees), the islands fall within the hurricane belt, so hurricanes may be a factor between June 1 and Nov. 30 (the Atlantic hurricane season). Most of these months (plus May) also fall within the region’s rainy season, which can leave you with fewer days spent enjoying the islands’ outdoor activities. But keep in mind that mid-December to mid-April’s sublime weather attracts hordes of tourists, so prices will be at their highest and crowds at their thickest during these months.

What is hurricane season in Bahamas?

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30 with the peak period from early August through the end of October.

Best Tips to Visit Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island – Bahamas

Atlantis Resorts Paradise Island or “The City of Atlantis” is the world-renowned Caribbean destination in the Bahamas for all ages. The Atlantis Hotel Nassau Bahamas features a variety of accommodations built around a 141-acre waterscape called Aquaventure. This water park contains 18 thrilling water slides, 20 swimming areas, a seven-acre snorkeling lagoon, and more. Atlantis also has the world’s largest open-air marine habitat bringing 50,000 marine animals from reef sharks to sea turtles within your reach. We’ve put together this list to help your trip to Atlantis be the best it can be. These are the Atlantis Bahamas tips you’ll be happy you know before you go.

The Atlantis Resort can be overwhelming even before you arrive. Making an accommodation choice alone can be a dizzying process. There’s the Cove, The Royal Towers, The Reef, The Coral, The Beach and more! Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with tips, secrets, and tricks to help you navigate Atlantis like a pro.

Where is Atlantis Resort located?

Set along the Atlantic Ocean, this sprawling beachfront resort is 3 km from the lively Nassau Straw Market, 4 km from the 18th-century Fort Fincastle and 19 km from Lynden Pindling International Airport.

Bright, warm rooms have flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi and ocean views; some feature kitchens, whirlpool tubs, and/or balconies or terraces. Plush suites have living rooms; an iconic bridge suite is suspended between 2 hotel towers.

Amenities include 19 bars and 21 restaurants, plus a water park, 9 pools and 2 marine habitats. There’s a lively casino, a golf course and a chic spa, along with a kids’ club. An airport shuttle can be arranged.

Best Atlantis Bahamas Tips for an overwhelming experience.

1. Reaching Atlantis

When booking your trip to Atlantis,  you will want to book your flight to Nassau (NAS) and then take a taxi from the airport to the resort. Taxi prices are regulated so you won’t be overcharged. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the resort. Our Bahamian taxi drivers were courteous and professional. You can also book airport transfers through Atlantis, but then you may be stuck waiting for other passengers. We would not recommend renting a car. If you want to explore more of the island, hire a taxi. The locals may have some insider tips on places to go too!

2. Choosing Accomodations

For families: Nearly all accommodations at Atlantis are family-friendlyThe main Royal Towers is the place to stay to be closest to the action and probably the best option if a visit is a “once in a lifetime” experience for your family.  The Coral has newly renovated family-friendly rooms and suites. If you want to get away from the crowds of the main resort, The Harborside has 1-3 bedroom villas with full kitchens and laundry facilities. The Reef Atlantis offers more upscale living with Big studios, 1-2 bedrooms units with fully equipped kitchens or kitchenettes. This is perfect for families wanting easy access to the beach. While not formally part of the resort, the adjacent Comfort Suites Paradise Island provides budget-friendly accommodations AND includes all of the Atlantis amenities.

3. Atlantis is NOT an all-inclusive resort

Be prepared to shell some serious cash for special experiences, meals, snacks, drinks, etc. Many people recommend packing snacks and water bottles to avoid extra daytime charges. You’ll likely have a large dinner, but snacks help hold everyone over during the day. Rooms have mini fridges too for storing drinks and leftovers. The resort has a meal plan, which can be helpful if your kids are 11 and under (then they eat free). FoodStore2Go.com will deliver groceries to the resort as well. I’ve heard that Dominos will deliver too, but give them a call to make sure.

4. Make Reservations for Dinner in advance

Make dinner reservations before you even leave for the resort; otherwise, you’ll run into some wait times or will have to eat very early or late. Once you arrive you’ll likely have a message on your room phone asking you to confirm your reservations. Our favorites for fine dining are Nobu, Mosaic, and Dune at the Ocean Club. Our family-friendly recommendations are Carmines, Poseidon’s Table, Virgil’s Real BBQ, and  Murray’s Deli.

5. Download the Interactive Map

Atlantis Resort Map

Atlantis Resort is HUGE! Before you leave, download the free resort app available for iPhone, iPad, and Android. It includes a map and a list of events. You can use it to make your dinner reservations on the fly or before you leave. If you don’t want to carry your phone, pick up a printed map because, believe me, it’s easy to get lost.

6. Avoid Crowd

Since Atlantis is a very popular resort, you are likely to encounter crowds, especially if you travel during the high seasons like holiday and school vacations. The best way to avoid crowds is to travel in the low season when most kids are in school. If you are there during more crowded times, we have a few tips:

Avoid the Cruise Crowds: Sunday and Mondays are typically a bit lighter crowd-wise because the cruise ships are not flooding the property with extra people. You can also visit Aquaventure early or after 5pm when the cruise crowds are not there. There is a website called CruiseTT.com where you can see what ships will be in port on any given day.

Eat off-site: Consider having at least some of your meals off property. For breakfast, I recommend taking a stroll over to the neighboring marina village for Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts. It’s also nice eating al fresco and gazing at the stunning yachts docked there.

Reserve seating: to avoid the mad dash each morning to get prime seating around the main pool, you can book preferred seating for two guests at the Grotto Pool inside Aquaventure. Private cabanas can also be reserved throughout the main waterpark area. During crowded months, they can really be well worth the extra cost and provide many added amenities.

7. Swim with the Dolphins

Booking a special experience like those available at Dolphin Cay will help you spend time away from the crowds. Here you can swim with dolphins and frolic with sea lions. It’s not a cheap endeavor, but well worth it in my book. Make sure to book early as this very popular experience fills up months in advance. You can also purchase beach passes where you can spend the entire day at the Dolphin Cay beach.

Pro Tip:

Personal cameras are not allowed into the Dolphin Lagoon. Non-participating family members can take photos from the shoreline. The photo packages are extremely expensive so split the cost with another family if you can. All files are digital so they are easy to pay one price and then share.

8. No need to pay “Tips”

No need to pay tip, since tips are already included on everything you purchase. For example, a $6.25 self-serve cheese slice of pizza came to $7.40 with VAT (value added tax) and tip added in. We were told by the front desk that even the daily fee per person at the hotel covers bellhop services. They will still accept a tip, but that’s up to you.

9. Skip the Lazy River

While there are times when you’ll want a lazy float, you’ll definitely want to head to the rapid river called The Current. It’s a mile-long river ride with high-intensity waves and rapids, guaranteed to keep you cool and laughing. It’s similar to a lazy river, but sans the lazy portion. It can take up to a half hour to float along the twisty path, but you’ll have more fun along the way riding waves and bumping over rapids. My family did this over and over again.

Pro Tip:

You can use your own Mobile / Go Pro on the Rapid River Ride. In case you are using your mobile device, please don’t forget the Plastic Mobile Pouch to protect it from water.

A comment from TripAdvisor: “Holy Crap! The good thing about this is that you go so fast it’s over in no time. The bad thing is that you go so fast you don’t really notice when you end up in a see-through tube surrounded by sharks. I let out a blood curdling scream all the way down.”

Liquor Stores or Grocery stores near Atlantis

In the Paradise Shopping Center, there are two liquor stores. Don’t shop in the one you see first and go to the Bristols Liquor Store. Their soda was only $.75, and small waters only $.70. They also had punch and lots of liquor and mixers. Great prices on Rum and decent wines/prices. Definitely significantly cheaper than the other liquor store.

The shopping center is across the road from the Marina Village. Exit the Royal Towers in to the Marina Village, exit Marina Village right alongside Johnny rockets and the shopping center is across the street!

IS ATLANTIS AN ALL-INCLUSIVE RESORT?

Atlantis is not an all-inclusive Resort; it’s a full service Resort. As guests, you have full access to all Atlantis water park features at no additional cost. Included are 11 swimming areas, 11 water slides, two Lazy River Rides, a protected Paradise Lagoon, The Dig, the Predator’s Lagoon, all the marine life habitats, and the ocean beach area.

Meal plans are available to enhance your experience at the resort. These plans vary and offer guests options depending upon where they would like to dine and where they are staying within the resort.

Animal Farm Book

Animal Farm

Animal_Farm_Story

Mr. Jones lay in bed
deep in peaceful slumber.
Blissfully unaware of the revolution that
stirred,
a revolution that formed right under.

All animals, big and small had come together
in a barn outside when night fell.
They gathered around the wisest of boars,
for Old Major had a tale to tell.

He spoke of a land where all roamed free,
where the two-legs were nowhere in sight.
He taught them the tune of ‘Beasts of England’
and the animals got the will to fight.

Alas, Old Major passed away,
an unfortunate event. Oh no!
But it fueled the fire that stirred within,
for the animals would overthrow their
two-legged foe.

For days on end they laid in wait
until the pigs came up with a plan.
Chasing away the unworthy humans,
they won back their once homeland.

Then came the joy, a blinding hope
to build a world for themselves.
Cheers rose up among the different creatures,
‘Two legs bad, four legs good’ they said.

Smartest of all, Snowball and Napoleon
came up with a set of rules.
And for a while everything was alright.
Everything was as it should.

But power corrupts,
it consumes and destroys,
It eats away the heart.
And the pigs took over as they planned,
planned from the start.

Snowball, however, looked for the best,
but the good never get to speak,
For Napoleon’s thirst made Snowball run away,
run away, never to be seen.

Days, weeks, months, years,
all passed in the blink of an eye.
Every animal was a slave stuck in their dream,
unable to resist Napoleon, unable to fly.

‘Two legs bad, four legs good’ was gone,
changed against their will.
‘Four legs good, two legs better’ was what it
was. Being an animal was simply a sin.

They had dreamed of a world where all
creatures were equal,
but now the animals weren’t comrades, nor
brothers,
For while all animals were equal,
some were more equal than others.

However, that wasn’t what shocked them.
Wasn’t what broke the animals’ hearts.
For when two stepped out together, man and
pig,
one could not tell them apart.

About Animal Farm

Animal Farm is an allegorical novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945.

What’s the purpose of a spontaneous demonstration in Animal Farm?

One of the literary techniques George Orwell uses in his dystopian novel, Animal Farm, is allegory.

An allegory is a story that has a hidden, deeper meaning in reference to a political or moral idea. Allegory (in the sense of the practice and use of allegorical devices and works) has occurred widely throughout history in all forms of art, largely because it can readily illustrate or convey complex ideas and concepts in ways that are comprehensible or striking to its viewers, readers, or listeners.

There are several purposes for the Spontaneous Demonstrations in George Orwell’s Animal Farm. One purpose is to instill pride in the animals for the farm they live on, and remind them that they own the products of their labor. Despite the difficulty of the work, they are now working for themselves.

However, the Spontaneous Demonstrations also display where the power lies. The animals march, and then listen to speeches given by the pigs. The conditions for the rest of the animals have deteriorated, and these demonstrations are a means of distracting the animals from their hunger and the cold.

The Spontaneous Demonstrations in Animal Farm allude to Communist/Soviet Russia, where the party would organize similar demonstrations. In Soviet Russia, the demonstrations were meant to look as if people supported the party so much they couldn’t stop themselves from showing their appreciation. The truth was that these were public relations stunts.

Car Insurance – 2019

car-insurance

Last Updated: 9th August, 2019

Inexpensive Car Insurance

This article provides in-depth information on various Types of Car Insurance Coverage, (mostly applicable for drivers living in the US), how to Save on Insurance effectively and Temporary Car Insurance in Canada.

Types of Coverage

Your auto policy is broken down into different coverage types. The types are fairly standard company to company and across different states. There is some variation in exclusions and definitions between insurance companies. In addition, different states have different minimum requirements as well as some different coverage options and requirements.

  • Collision: This is what most people think of when they picture car insurance. It covers damage to your car resulting from an accident (with another car or stationary object). Collision is usually required when you have a car loan. When you don’t have a loan, collision is usually an optional coverage. If you are driving a beater it may not be worth the money to insure, especially if you have an emergency fund to cover a new car in case of an accident. Deciding whether to drop collision is a personal decision. It is recommend talking to an agent. They can break down your quote and tell you what it costs to keep collision on your vehicle. This will help you decide if it’s worth it.
  • Comprehensive (Comp): Comp is similar to collision but this covers damage to your car caused by an ‘act of god’ (wind, hail, falling trees, deer, cracked windshield, etc.) Everything else said for collision applies here. However, note that you can have separate deductibles for comp and collision. Many people like having a lower comp deductible to cover the less severe cosmetic damage (hail, glass).
  • Property Damage Liability or Physical Damage (PDL or PD): If you’re deemed at fault in an accident, this covers the damage to the other car(s) and / or building / property you damage. This is a required coverage with the required limits varying state to state. I’d highly recommend getting at least $25,000 limits (if not more) even if your state requirements are lower. If the damage you cause exceeds your limits you will be legally obligated to pay the difference out of pocket.
  • Bodily Injury Liability (BI): This is similar to Property Damage Liability but it covers the person you injure, not the car. BI pays for medical bills, pain and suffering, wage loss, and funeral service. It is primarily used for people in the car you hit but also covers pedestrians you hit and any passengers in your car. However, note that this coverage does not cover you (the at fault driver). The limits with this coverage get a little more complex. There are two limits. Per person and per occurrence. A common example would be 50/100. This means it will cover up to $100,000 for any given accident but each person is limited to $50,000. Like Property Damage Liability, you could be held liable for additional damages if your limits are insufficient. A minimum of 100/300 is recommended.
  • Medical Expense / Medical Payments (Med Pay): This covers your (and your passengers’) medical bills. It is a no fault coverage so it applies regardless of who caused the accident. This is a great coverage, especially if you have no / limited health insurance. Even if you have health insurance this is nice because there are no deductibles / copays. In some PIP states (see below) med pay is not available.
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP): This varies greatly from state to state and is not offered in some states yet required in other states. Like med pay, it’s a no fault coverage. It will cover your medical bills regardless of who is at fault. However, unlike med pay, there is sometimes a threshold; you must reach a certain amount of medical bills before this coverage kicks in. Another difference is that PIP also covers additional expenses such as wage loss.
  • Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM): This is an additional coverage and varies from state to state. It basically covers accidents where you’re not at fault but the other person doesn’t have any / enough insurance. You may be thinking that earlier this page mentioned under BI/PD that if you’re at fault you can be held personally liable if your insurance limits aren’t sufficient. So why would you need this coverage? If the other party is at fault either their insurance would cover it or they would pay out of pocket. But what if it’s a hit and run? Or an unemployed bum? The chances of you ever seeing a penny is slim. This coverage protects you when the liable party is unable to pay. The PD portion covers damage to your car and the BI portion reimburses you for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. So now you’re probably thinking well I have health insurance plus I already have med pay so why would I need this? Simple. This offers further protection. If you’re in the hospital, unable to work, after the accident this will cover your lost wages. If you require in home care, this will cover it.
  • Other: Depending on the carrier, there may be other optional coverages such as emergency road side assistance. These are highly variable so they will not be covered here.

Ways to save on insurance

Here are a few tips on how to save.

  • Shop around. Talk to an agent. Get a quote online. There are dozens of factors that go into pricing and each company has a slightly different formula. Find the company whose formula works in your favor.
  • Pay your bill upfront rather than monthly. Many companies give you a discount for paying right away rather than once a month. Additionally, if you’re able to use a rewards credit card to do this you could get additional cash back (just make sure to pay your statement in full to avoid paying interest).
  • Adjust your deductibles. Sometimes this makes sense, sometimes it doesn’t. It really comes down to how the company prices and how comfortable you are with risk. For example, if some cases, increasing the deductible from $500 to $1,000 would have only saved the driver $8 every 6 months or $1.33/month. In order for this to work out in that person’s favor, they would have to go 375 months without an accident. In this situation it wouldn’t be worth the extra risk and kept the lower deductible. However, if you feel you’re a safe driver and are unlikely to get in an accident, and also have an emergency fund big enough to cover a large deductible, go ahead and increase your deductible and save a few dollars.
  • Bundle. Try to get your homeowners / renters through the same company. Most places offer a large discount when you bundle. If you have children / dependents it could also be worth looking into term life as well.
  • See if you can get a discount for taking a defensive driving course. Just make sure the discount would offset the cost to complete the course.
  • Get Usage Based Insurance (UBI), especially if you do not drive a lot. Many companies offer a discount for installing a device in your car that monitors your driving habits for a few months. On top of the discount offered for installing the device, most companies will then lower your premium further if you have safe driving results.

TEMPORARY CAR INSURANCE IN CANADA

Car insurance is required to legally drive a car, and it protects a driver from the risks associated with driving. However, car insurance plans frequently require a driver to sign up for a long term commitment with it being difficult for drivers to find an insurance plan on a short term basis.

Temporary Insurance: What Is It?

Drivers can solve the problem of getting temporary coverage by purchasing a temporary insurance plan. Generally, a temporary insurance plan is for less than a few months with some plans covering a driver for a couple of weeks. A typical temporary insurance plan will cover the driver from between one day to a month.

Temporary car insurance policies have a number of advantages. They are generally cheaper than other car insurance plans that may require a driver to sign up for a committed term of payments. However, most temporary insurance plans will be more expensive on a day to day basis than a long term plan. They are also much easier for to secure. Most temporary plans simply require the car owner to place a phone call. The temporary car insurance can then be added to a car almost immediately.

WHY MIGHT YOU NEED TEMPORARY CAR COVERAGE?

There is a variety of reasons why you may need temporary insurance. The most common reason is that you are the owner of a car that you only drive during certain parts of a year. This may be a car used for road trips, moving furniture, hauling a trailer, or a classic car that you rarely drive. This allows you to save money on insuring these cars while allowing them to be covered during the time they are in use.

It is common to get temporary insurance for people who do not drive the car that often. This may be a student who is home from school and needs to drive the car, house guests or house sitters that need a way to get around, and for people who suddenly find a need to drive.

Temporary insurance can be used to maintain coverage between when you first buy a car and are waiting to decide on a permanent car insurance plan. This allows you to secure the best policy possible. Temporary insurance is useful if you are too busy to pick out the best permanent car insurance policy. Similarly, temporary insurance can be used to maintain coverage when switching policies.

Also, temporary insurance is useful when selling a car. It allows you to avoid having to pay insurance on a car that is already sold while still maintaining coverage during the sales process. This means that a driver doesn’t have to rush to sell a car that has had its permanent insurance plan canceled.

HOW TO GET TEMPORARY OR SHORT TERM CAR INSURANCE

The first step in purchasing temporary insurance is to make a list of companies that offer this type of insurance, you can begin a quote with us today to see a complete list of temporary insurance providers. All we need is your basic information, this will include sthings like has how long of coverage is needed, the amount it needs to cover, and your driving history.

You will then have to decide on how long of coverage you will need, what level of liability coverage, and if you want additional coverage such as collision or total insurance coverage.

Temporary insurance may present you with the decision to purchase a relatively longer policy for a lower rate, or a short term policy that may not cover the full amount of time that you need insurance for. It is good to compare the rates between policies with different lengths of coverage.

The final process of securing temporary insurance is fairly easy. Most policies can be secured over the phone. This is especially true when securing coverage for a temporary driver on an existing policy. Other companies allow insurers to purchase policies over the internet.

It is important to review the policy for things such as cancellation or renewal fees.

History of India

HISTORY OF INDIA

Last Updated: 18th February, 2019

India’s history and culture is dynamic, spanning back to the beginning of human civilization. It begins with a mysterious culture along the Indus River and in farming communities in the southern lands of India. The history of India is punctuated by constant integration of migrating people with the diverse cultures that surround India. Available evidence suggests that the use of iron, copper and other metals was widely prevalent in the Indian sub-continent at a fairly early period, which is indicative of the progress that this part of the world had made. By the end of the fourth millennium BC, India had emerged as a region of highly developed civilization.

It’s amazing to learn about the Indian History which we often miss out in schools. I never knew there was a Greek Indian Kingdom in India for a significant time till I checked out the map of Empires of India. I find it quite surprising that the British were the first to have the entire Indian Subcontinent under their control, with the Mughal Empire coming second with only the south and some parts of the east outside their control.

Romilla Thapar’s book Early India from the origins to 1300 AD is a great book to start learning about this era.

FACTS ABOUT EMPIRES OF INDIA

It is believed that there was a Greek ambassador known as Megasthenes in the Mauryan Empire. Mouryas and Guptas ruled from Arabian Sea to Bay of Bengal, covering both the populous Indus and Ganges valleys, that was an achievement then. British could rule mostly because of technological advancements in shipbuilding.

The level of control enjoyed in the Deccan by the Mughals probably exceeded that of the Delhi Sultanate, and the Guptas and the Mauryas (in that order). None of them were able to truly consolidate their holdings in the Deccan, with their large territorial dominance lasting ~50 years at the most. Why? Technology, as simple as that.

By the age of the Mughals, shipbuilding, gunpowder etc. made it easier to build nations. The notion of currency, banking institutions, tax codes etc. were much better developed. Armies were professional, weaponry was far more advanced. Tribal kings would wilt under Mughal artillery barrage but could probably give a tougher fight to a Mauryan army.

Google’s Future Competitor in 2021

Google's_Future_Competitor

Last Updated: 7th September, 2020

Who’s Google’s Future Competitor?

Google market share in the US currently stands at 63.8 percent, with Bing (including Yahoo’s search volume) coming in at 33.5 percent. This makes Bing a credible competitor to Google in the US, but the story is quite different internationally, where Google is dominant in nearly every country, other than China (Baidu), Russia (Yandex), Korea (Naver) and the Czech Republic (Seznam).

We all know “Google” for the past 20 years as the biggest company which provides services like Gmail, Search Engine, Mobile OS, YouTube etc.

Ever wondered how they make profit? As we all know, they earn money only from their advertisement tool called Google AdWords. Facebook uses similar tools to earn money which is called Facebook Adverts (Advertising Tool).

Now as we know that both Google & Facebook earn money using the same methodology, we might think them to be a competitor of each other. Isn’t it? But the reality is something different ! Let’s find out the inside story.

Data Sharing Pipeline

If you slightly change your vision, you will realize that it’s a partnership business. I know this because Facebook & Google share their user information with each other. Yes ! your searches are all recorded and you certainly don’t have any privacy. Do you know how advertisers track you online to show only relevant Ads based on your interests?

Thanks to big companies like Google and Facebook !!!

For Example, if you search “Pizza Order Online” in any of the Google platforms like Play Store, Chrome or Search Engine, your information is recorded and that data could be shared to Facebook network immediately.

And the next minute, you see Kites Cafe’s Facebook Ad.

So, both have shared their customers data and their revenue share depends upon the partnership & performances of online users. The user has been tracked by the re-marketing technique which uses it to show the ad based on your interest. So, this AD can follow you wherever you go and whatever platform you use. Moreover, Google gets data from it’s own partners like YouTube, Google Play-store, Android OS and Google Search Engine.

Who’s Google’s real Competitor?

When it comes to competition for search engine traffic, Google isn’t most worried about Microsoft Bing or Yahoo as a threat — actually, it’s Amazon.com. That’s what Google executive Eric Schmidt thinks.

But while the two companies compete on a number of levels — from phones to cloud services to drones to search engines — there is also some “co-operation” between the two. For example, Amazon was the biggest spender on Google search ads in the U.S. last year, spending a whopping $157.7 million.

E commerce Evolution

Yes! every big company wants to enter the e-commerce platform. Google & Facebook are in the process of starting their e-commerce platform soon. According to market research, only the Online Retail Market will have the potential to rule the world business in the upcoming years which is exactly what Amazon is doing.

Voice Assistant

Amazon introduced it’s new voice assistant device called Amazon Echo which can be used in home automation functions. To compete in this space, even google introduced it’s voice assistant technology product called Google Home which can used for the same purpose.

Artificial Intelligence’s Entry

Sometimes I have thought about Google to become a sky-net which I have seen in the Terminator movie. In my early days, one of my colleague warned me not to underestimate Google and it’s products. Then I started being aware of their business & and their products. All the changes & updates reminded me of the sky-net. All data under one data center. Terminator movie clearly explained that the world’s last day will come because of the robotics war.

Example, if we take top companies in the world, they are ready to use advanced technology. Amazon & Domino’s have a plan to increase their door step delivery by drones.

These drones can scan the customers house for up-sales. But this not related to our topic, so let’s go to conclude the topic.

Anything under human control is better for human living, otherwise if we go for machine learning to survive the competition, we may have to face the last day of the world soon.

Anyhow we need to have an awareness of the advancement in technology which can rule the world in the next 20 years.
