Free Background Music

I ran into a website that offers free music. I appears as though there are a couple of different licenses available, but most of the material can be used for anything without violation of their terms and conditions.

You certainly could use it for background music for online videos.

You could use it for background music for audio recordings.

You could use it for intro and outro music for an audio or webinar presentation.

Looks like a huge collection of free music in countless number of musical styles.

I’ve been listening to a classical piano selection for the last couple of days as I work. Probably the second or third time in my life that I’ve listened to classical piano……I know, totally uncultured :)

Anyway….check it out  and let me know what you think…… Jamendo

Adding content or code to existing webpages

How to search and replace for multiple webpages.

I made a forum post to help a fellow who was looking to do the following and thought it might help my readers looking to quickly make changes to existing webpages without having to do it manually…here’s the question.

Let’s say I want to add a new link to my menu on all my 10,000 pages of my site.

Anyone know of a software that automates this task? I did hear about one years ago… but forgot the name.

Karl…I use a simple program called search and replace, its freeware and you can find it at

If your menu is confined to a snippet of code you can use the software to located that snippet and replace it with the new menu snippet.

As someone else mentioned, I’d find the snippet for the menu and then replace the snippet with a php include. This would bring the code in from an external file. This would also allow you to make changes to one file and have those changes show up on every page automatically.

Word of caution. Once you change something with this software there is NO UNDO! So copy a folder and practice before you actually use it.

Also, the way it works…is that you locate the folder that your webpages are in and tell it to look for “something” to replace with “something” If you use your local folder, make the changes you can upload and overwrite the existing files….so you won’t have to download all 10,000 pages.

I would just stress that you want to make sure you understand how it works before making changes on 10,000 pages….please experiment by creating a folder and adding/copying a few of the pages you want to change. Try the program to see if you can make it do what you want it to do before doing all 10,000 pages :)

Good luck

By Automatically Harnessing the Massive Amount of Targeted Buyers on Craigslist and the Astronomic Selection of Products on eBay…

“Affiliate Marketing Just Became Automated”

Steve was manually sending email to craiglist buyers suggesting ebay products. Now….. he has automated the process and its called CraigsAgent!

Are you maximizing your affiliate marketing potential by utilizing the most popular websites on the internet? If you don’t already know about the simple method I’m about to reveal to you, you’re missing out on a lot of potential income.

Watch the Video! now receives over 25,000,000 monthly visitors, with 20% of those visitors posting want ads. That’s 5 MILLION potential clients with money in hand BEGGING YOU to help them locate the items they need!

However, only a handful of marketers know how to harness the power of this highly profitable market… The secret lies in the process of marketing the items you find to these clients and striking a decent and steady profit.

Currently, there’s a great eBook circulating around the web (that I wrote) that shows you the secrets to accomplishing this process. People are paying $27.00 for this information all day, every day. But lucky for you…

I’m going to reveal that secret strategy to you right now. In fact, fill in your name and email address and I’ll send you a link to a video that explains the entire process!

The idea is simple and the results are fantastic. You simply promote eBay products, with your custom affiliate link, to those people on Craigslist who are ready to buy the products you find for them!

Authority and Internal Linking for SEO

Get on Page 1 of Google

Josh Spaulding in “The Easy SEO Report” says that “The authority of any given page is primarily determined by the amount of authority that has been passed to it through links that are spread out through the world wide web. This “Authority” is not determined by the Authority of the site in general, but by the page of that site which contains your link.”

I forgot to mention this great report is Free!

Josh is telling us that if you want “Authority” for your niche….the links ‘coming to’ your niche site must be from a quality site….an authority site in and of itself and a site with some page rank. Basically a page of value, especially as determined by Google and the lesser search engines.

Another thing to consider….imagine you are working on building an authority site on the Xsitepro website editing software your strategy should focus on getting links from other sites about website building….xsitepro in particular and those links should be from sites similar to or better than yours regarding the features we already talked about…. authority, rank, seo etc. So there would be little to no value in joining a link exchange program that sends PR1 links to your xsitepro website from sites that range from birdflu to Bill Clinton.

He goes on to say in “The Easy SEO Report” that each page on the world wide web is ranked individually, consequently each page that is on the net can only pass on the amount of Authority it has Received. Get this concept and you’re on the way to greater seo truths. If you have internal pages in your website about How to Use XsitePro (our example) with a higher page rank and getting more traffic than the index (first page) then it’s because of the Authority Links going to those internal pages and not the index page.

If you’re smart, you will build on that by focusing your marketing on those high traffic pages, add a popup, subscription box, banner or other advertising…..but that’s another story.

Let’s imagine that the blog or website about Xsitepro Tutorials has been filled with articles, blog posts and some ebooks. You’ve managed to get a PR4 for the site. Now I want you to imagine a typical pie chart….that is a circle filled in with black. That represents the total authority of your website, 100% of your percieved and real Authority. We’re trying to understand what happens to that Authority when pages/sites are linked to and from your site/page. ( See end of post for more on the pie chart)

In the real world you will pass some of that authority to other sites or webpages….I think Josh calls it “Passable Authority”. I’ll quote from his report “The Easy SEO Report

Authority is also passed through your own internal paes, For instance, if your index ( is linking out to 30 pages, each of those links is going to get a certain amount of the authority in which your index page possesses. That goes for both internal and external links. If is only linking to and….then is going to get half of the passable authority and is going to get the other half.

What Josh is saying is that it is irrelevant (regarding the fact that authority is passed) where you’re linking to, whether it be your own internal pages or pages from Joe Blows site….some portion of your Authority is going to get passed regardless of anything……seems to be kind of like gravity. Jump out the window and go splat…link to other pages/sites and pass your authority.

If you’ve followed so far I hope you’ve realized that the Authority your site has gained can be passed on other websites and webpages. The consquence is that you might now be just passing on the hard earned Authority your site has gained by indiscriminate linking. The good news is, now you know and can be more careful where and how you link to others.

I’m not the expert…but I agree with Josh, he remarks that he isn’t condolling the hording of links because it is only natural to link to other sites if your own content is going to be useful to the reader. Armed with this information about Authority and the fact that it is passed should make you more discerning about linking to other sites or pages.

This review is only a small part of Josh Spaldings free ebook “The Easy SEO Report” and I found it concise and easy to apply and current. Worthy of reading by novice and the old wrinkled marketers/gurus.

Josh finishes off this section by encouraging us to control our own Authority by doing the following:

1. Make sure you have many internal links on all the pages of your website. Remember that each page will pass Authority to the page or pages it links to. He says,“The more internal links you have the more authority your site is going to maintain and the less authority that will be passed through the external links.”

2. His a trick he expounds on in this blog post “Internal Linking – META nofollow, rel no folow, robots.txt and Confusion” He implores us to use the rel=”nofollow” atribute in all links that don’t need authority. He’s talking about your contact pages, about me pages and surprisingly affiliate links. along with links to SERP pages…there’s more read the post and the resources in his blog post. He gives and exampleof a link usng the re'”nofollow” atribute:
<a rel=”nofollow” href=””>Contact Us</a>

3. Finally he says to restrict pages and directories that you don’t want indexed with your robots.txt file. Check the about blog post for more details on how to use robots.txt

This is just a section from a great read written by a guy who knows what he’s talking about. Thanks Josh!

Now I’m thinking about my Xsitepro sample site. I go back in my minds eye and think about the pie chart. The complete chart represents the Authority I have build for the website. Keeping the Authority leaves me kind of like the Lone Ranger….passing on some of that Authority to others of similar or more Authority will increase my Authority. So I give away a part of my pie chart only the make it bigger in the long run… long as I do it with a little forethought and planning. And don’t forget, Authority comes from being real, writing for the sole and single purpose of trying to maintain Authority makes you look like a miser because your content won’t be real. Like I tell my kids, “share” and it will be given back.

There’s no question about the relationship between Links and Authority. Josh simply and ably points this out. Try to get your links naturally and avoid all the spammy methods of link trading, I posted about a program called Linktator2 for link structure, this could be an easy way to get started building links if you have a new site or add some links to an old site. The key to Linktator2 is in the link structure

You must understand the concept of Authority and linking but share by writing relevant content and linking to a pr1 or pr0 when that content is worthy of sharing with your readers. Yes you can be stingy and try to keep your Authority and worry about wrecklessly spreading your page rank, but I think the spirit of the concept is more important than the law or the Authority concept. An old saying that is filled with wisdom of the ages comes to mind, “Give and it will be Given to You….. Your gift will return to you in full pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” from Luke 6:38

Creating Camtasia Video and Uploading Camtasia Video

There was an interesting question on the Warrior Forum regarding how to use Camtasia.

Sometimes we forget how difficult things can seem when first trying an application or installing a script. So what is obvious to some becomes a major road blog to others.

Apparently a new Camstasia user was having a tough time trying to get a video to show up on their website after spending an hour recording the video. They ended up with a .camrec file and weren’ sure what to do with it.

I can only speak from the experience of Camtasia ver 4 so, if ver 5 handles .camrec files differently then I just spread some misinformation. Anyway, here’s a copy of my post along with some of the other solutions. They just might help you go in the right direction when trying to produce a screen capture video.

Tiffany…what version of Camtasia are you using?

First you need to drop or import the “filename.camrec” into Camtasia Production.

Drag the “filename.camrec” to your timeline.

At this point…I would split the video into 4 to 6 different segments…thereby reducing the file size making the file sizes smaller and easier for slower connections to view.

There’s too many variables to discuss here that help to determine file size, but by splitting one large file into smaller ones it will help to keep your viewers attention amongst other things.

Let’s say you didn’t want to split the file. Next you need to PRODUCE the video. On the far left there is a section called PRoduce…click on “Produce video as” ….choose your production options and produce the video. Camtasia ‘renders’ the project and a 1 hour video will take quite a while…especially on an older machine.

You’ll get a folder with files. Upload the entire folder and and link to the .html file to play the video….I should backup and say, first try to play the video on your local machine by clicking on the .html file ….if it works then upload.

hope that helps


Someone suggested:
Here is a pretty easy tutorial on how to do it.…yWebsite.swf


John Hocking mentioned:
The .camrec file is the raw screen capture data. It is only useful to loading into Camtasia for editing.

If you are planing to stream the video from your website, I would not use .avi

Open your project and produce the video as .swf or .flv.

The file size will be much smaller and will stream much better.

If you are using Camtasia 5. I would recommend using the ExpressShow Flash player. It has the ability to let the user expand the video to full screen.

Someone else mentioned:

Basically if you want to produce an hour video, put it on CD….I totally agree, especially if its a 700MB file.

Another Says:

They’ve had good luck with Flvproducer?

My Note: I don’t think Flvproducer works with camrec files.


Then Doug Barger says:

Cut up the original video into some 10 min segments to post to YouTube putting backlinks to the original 1 hour video….I agree, good way to generate some interst.

Camtasia can be tricky, I’ve used it from the very beginning and now that version is free :(

Although the new ver5 has a ton of new features, there’s a bit of a learning curve for anyone who’s never used it before. Camtasia has pretty good support, and they have a great forum. Also, there is a good selection of training videos on the Camstasia site.

As you get a handle on Camtasia, you’ll want to find out how to get the best looking video and audio while maintaining a small file size. Camtasia has a variety of tweaks that allows you to reduce frame rate, audio sampling and a few other tweaks that can cut a video size in half.

You can pick up a completely free version of Camtasia and give it a whirl if you haven’t used it before. Also, if you decided to upgrade, you can save a lot of cash by upgrading from this free version…..a little known secret.

Leave your name and email address and I’ll send you a report with the secret download link for a free copy of camtasia (completely legal & no affiliate commission for me)….I’m here to serve!

How to Zip a File with WinRAR

I’ve been using Winzip for ages. It’s a good program for zipping files but I found a better one called WinRAR.

You can find it at WinRAR

Download the trial version and discover a program that is much better than WinZip. You can break up a large file automatically into smaller files and upload them. Once the guy downloads the split files he can easily recompile the split file. has a ton of features…. WinRAR many more than WinZip.

I’ve been using WinRAR exclusively in place of Winzip. Download the trial version and give it a try….I guarantee you’ll like it.

WinRAR is a 32-bit Windows version of RAR Archiver, an archiver and archive manager. RAR files can usually compress content 8 percent to 15 percent more than ZIP files. WinRAR’s main features include strong general and multimedia compression, the ability to process non-RAR archive formats, ZIP compression and decompression, long filename support, programmable self-extracting archives (SFX), damaged archive repair, authenticity verification, embedded file comments, and encryption. Unicode is supported in archive filenames, allowing non-English filenames to be handled painlessly You can manipulate the parameters of many archives at once and view a volume sequence as a single archive. WinRAR is able to convert other archive formats to RAR. It supports the Find command, allowing search for specified text and files in archives.


  • WinRAR is a powerful compression tool with many integrated additional functions to help you organize your compressed archives.
  • WinRAR puts you ahead of the crowd when it comes to compression. By consistently creating smaller archives, WinRAR is often faster than the competition. This will save you disc space, transmission costs AND valuable working time as well.
  • WinRAR supports all popular compression formats (RAR, ZIP, CAB, ARJ, LZH, ACE, TAR, GZip, UUE, ISO, BZIP2, Z and 7-Zip).
  • WinRAR is ideal for multimedia files. WinRAR automatically recognizes and selects the best compression method. The special compression algorithm compresses multimedia files, executables and object libraries particularly well.
  • WinRAR allows you to split archives into separate volumes easily, making it possible to save them on several disks for example.
  • WinRAR is also ideal, if you are sending data through the web. Its 128 bit password encryption and its authenticated signature technology will give you the peace of mind you have been looking for.
  • WinRAR is shareware, meaning you have the chance to thoroughly test it. The program can be used absolutely free of charge for 40 days!
  • WinRAR licenses are valid for all available language and platform versions. If you have purchased several licenses, you can even mix versions to meet your own personal needs.
  • WinRAR gives you all future UPDATES for FREE! Not like the competition that will make you pay again every one or two years.
