How to create an internet radio station

online radioIf you’ve ever wondered how internet radio stations work and/or wanted to create your own, this tutorial will show you how. It is actually very easy, and you can set up your own radio station and begin broadcasting songs in about 10 minutes.

First of all, let me give you a quick rundown on how it works. You have your music player (I will use Winamp, get it if you don’t have it) and you play your music as you normally would. You probably need a fast internet connection so you can broadcast without buffering occuring. Through a plugin (which you will download and install), Winamp will send the music you play to the broadcasting server (which can be on your PC or on another one with a larger connection), and the server sends the music to the listeners, reencoding it to a better format, if you are so inclined. Note that the amount of listeners you will be able to support is limited by your outgoing bandwidth and the bitrate of the song you are streaming, so if you’re streaming at 128 kbps and you have 256 kbps upload bandwidth, you’ll obviously be able to support 256/128 = 2 listeners.

The programs I use are Winamp for playing, oddcast DSP for broadcasting to the server and Icecast for serving. You can use Winamp’s own Shoutcast plugin and server, but I prefer to broadcast in Vorbis because it’s smaller and has much better quality than MP3.

There are no small things ...

John Mueller from Google recently a webmaster replied that one small change will result in a drastic increase when it comes to ranking on search engines. There is a very simple statement immediately killed Barry Schwartz on his blog. Of course this statement by Google may have given way more relaxed from a different perspective that Google pushed for years, work patiently on content, forget about shortcuts and everything else and rating will come sooner or later. This strategy is ok, but the small and simple things can do wonders when it comes to ranking and traffic, but also time. Barry is a prime example of said simple and basic setting title tags which can result in a huge difference, but it is not the only little thing that you can do.

The titles of your articles can be one of those little things; the article targeted specific topic can certainly mean a lot to visit. Several stronger and better links can lift the entire domain. There is a whole set of little things that can significantly and positively affect the growth of traffic. Pay attention to your stats and understand why someone landed on your domain and you will immediately understand how can the smallest things, a change that may take 2-3 seconds to bring someone else.

Buying Links is a Bad Strategy

There are so many bad SEO techniques but this one has to be up there with the worst of them. Buying links of any kind doesn’t just cost a pretty packet, it’ll cost your site it’s ranking too as Google is now wise to people purchasing links.

Link farms are being shut down left, right and centre and people that are associated with link farms, much like spam, are finding their site is slipping down the rankings. This technique is labelled as black hat SEO, a term used within the industry to describe techniques which are sometimes illegal, immoral and punished by search engines.

Rather than wasting money and time buying links, you’d be better off investing the time in generating unique and original content and getting it in front of the right pair of eyes.

Whilst not the be all and end of keyword research and checking how many specific searches your keywords get every month, the Google Keyword Tool is a very solid starting point.

The keyword tool allows you to check monthly search volume for specific phrases. One of the best things about it is there’s no limit (that I’ve come across) to the number of keyword ideas that you can check with it. You can also check monthly searches by location giving you a great insight to help making targeting specific areas and countries with your campaigns much easier.

Another of the benefits of the tool is that it also gives you a string of keyword suggestions. So if you’re burned out thinking about unique and different keywords to drive traffic to your site have a look at some of the suggestions and see if any of them will work for you.

Google offer a great variety of tools. If you’re serious about digging into your website’s optimisation, I’d definitely grab yourself a Google account and make use of the Keyword Tool as well as Webmaster Tools and Analytics.

It’s Not All About the First Page

A lot of businesses and websites try to optimise their site to appear on the first page of Google which is completely understandable. The first several positions on the first page of Google bring in a high amount of organic search traffic. However, recent studies have shown that you’re better off being top of the second page than bottom of the first.

With the Canny Creative website I noticed a dramatic drop in web traffic when the site broke through from the top of the second page onto the bottom of the first. My visitor count dropped off and only started picking back up when my page was making it’s way above the fold into the fifth to first positions of Google.

If you’re trying to rank for a highly competitive keyword such as design, design agency etc, and you don’t think you have a hope in trying to rank above the fold on page one, you should aim for the very top of the second page and try and maintain your rank there.

SEO Tips & Techniques

Businesses are growing more aware of the need to understand and implement at least the basics of search engine optimization (SEO). But if you read a variety of blogs and websites, you’ll quickly see that there’s a lot of uncertainty over what makes up “the basics.” Without access to high-level consulting and without a lot of experience knowing what SEO resources can be trusted, there’s also a lot of misinformation about SEO strategies and tactics.

1. Commit yourself to the process.SEO isn’t a one-time event. Search engine algorithms change regularly, so the tactics that worked last year may not work this year. SEO requires a long-term outlook and commitment.

2. Be patient.SEO isn’t about instant gratification. Results often take months to see, and this is especially true the smaller you are, and the newer you are to doing business online.
