What Does Multimedia Entail?

People might wonder why, I think this multimedia thing is so important?

Well, it is becouse Multimedia is about utilizing multiple media formats. to communicate
something - An Idea, A Myth, A Story, An Opinion.

Whatever a person wants to communicate, it is always best understood with multiple
medias combined in one flawless presentation.

Most Folks combine Audio/Visual formats, into one static Multimedia format - but...

That, is not the end of this technology, and technologies. Now adays Multimedia is
Digital - The web is Multimedia, and many different systems allow multimedia content.

Streaming, Static, Dynamic, Movies, Interactive - are all concepts of the multi-media.

Search Engines are a very Multi-media orientated technology. And to develop multi-media,
a person usually has to know how to code, as well as, know how to manipulate, create,
and edit:

Graphics, Text, Audio, and Video.

For various formats, including AM/FM Radio, Internet, Wireless and Various TV standards; PAL,
NTSC - DVD, SVCD, HD-TV...

I figured, a few months back that Internet TV would hit it big - And I wished
and prayed that I would have enough funding to start my own InternetTV show...

I don't, but, who knows what the future will bring.

I also have other technologies, I wish to develop; Services, and Products - I am a
Multimedia Developing Techno Geek.

I want to be like Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam! Service after service - Having every multi-national,
multi-billion dollar entities utilizing my wares - 4 stong men transporting me to my media made
golden throne - "Hail Mr. Tames" - Childrens Stories about a Rags to Riches, multi-dimensional
character, that ended up carrying the world through his media - Becouse he followed his dream,
and becouse he was stubborn enough, to just not die, easily.

But, I suppose I am not meant for that, becouse it is quite exagerated.

But, it is this writting that is giving me ideas, my inner-dialog pouinding out
wording and speech - that i basicly just have to add visuals to, even then that
is already finished.

But the question is how..

My Recommendation to Traffic, SEO, and Internet Experts

I recommend experts of all abilities to please...

Talk in terms of 'Visitors' - Not 'Hits', and Not 'Page Views', when
discussing Site Traffic.

Note: Sometimes Hits are actually Page Accessess (UK).

Yes, The numbers will be reduced, and the stats will not sound
so extraordinary. For example:

My current 23 day stats (becouse I have 7 days left, to make it 30 day stats):

Hits: 69,339
Page Views: 17,153
Visitors: 10,985

Now, If I used 'Hits' to talk in stat terms, well for one thing it would be utterly
meaningless, becouse it is the content that matters, and the visitors that matter;
Now how many hits it takes to load a page.

Note: Sometimes Hits are actually Page Accessess (UK).

The 'Page Views' can be used for some discussions - But look above,
my 'Page Views' are almost doubling the actual amount of 'visitors' I get to my
site.

Note: Sometimes Hits are actually Page Accessess (UK).

Next month, I know my 'hits' will bounce over 100,000 - I know my 'page views'
will bounce over '24,000', and I know my 'visitors' will bounce to about '16,000'.

Becouse I have been working on getting more traffic for about 2 weeks, here and there.

Gosh, 6,000 of those 10,985 visitors came from Google alone, where did the other
4,000 visitors come from? Actually, the site only got 7,265 Unique Vistors.

So about 6,000 of those Unique Visitors came from Google Searchs, and the rest
came from some other source:

RSS Feeds, Links, Printed Pages, Traffic Generators, and Other Search Engines.

From the total Visitors minus the unique vistors, we know some 3,000 visitors,
checked out multiple pages on the site, and that alot of those 3,000 visitors,
came back.

A month ago (minus the 2 months the site was offline) - I would talk in hundreds of visitors.

But check it out... I can't do that anymore - I have to talk in thousands now.

Is it becouse of RSS Feeds?

No... I only submitted this Blog to 2 ATOM Feed Sites,
And the actual website RSS Feeds,
I only submitted to 5 RSS Feed sites.

Is it becouse of my new
Link to me - to Cash In
service?

Are you Kidding me, that is so not working the way I thought it might work.

You know, I have no idea where, or why those 3,000 visitors came!
In my Referrer stats - It says, I have 4,624 visitors that have
'No Referrer'...

So, sheese do I have 4,624 visitors typing in the site URL Manually? Or What?
The rest of the Refering sites are totals that are less then 100 - much less.

I believe it is actually mostly consumer level firewalls, stripping off the Http 'Referrer'
header. These consumer level firewalls also probally strip out content, such
as banner ads, sky scraper ads, object code, and certain javascripts.

Some browsers allow the Referrer header to be changed, for instance the Opera Browser.

As far as I know only 2% of my visitors use Opera. And 70% of my visitors use Internet Explorer,
75% use various Windows O/S, which makes sense since I mostly use Windows Media Formats,
for the media.

9 People accessed my site with win32's. Win32's extend the 16-bit Windows 3.1, and 3.11
to various, but very few, 32 bit processing, and functions.

Netscape version 4 works on Win32's systems... Actually, I was suprised to see that in my log
file. 1 person was using BeOS - Interesting Operating System there.

3 People accessed through WebTV. 1 Person through WinCE - Which is the Mobile
version of Windows. But i do not remeber if its 16, or 32 bit.

Now, isn't it interesting how far the web is starting to reach?

Traffic needs to be dissected, into systems, wired/wireless, mobile, TV, country...

Visitors, now adays is not a good enough measure of traffic.

Note: Sometimes Hits are actually Page Accessess (UK).

Ladies, and Gentlemen, and Internet Technology Experts a like -
We gotta change our traffic measuring ways.

If your a webmaster, you of course already know this.

In my up and coming book about Traffic, SEO, Media,
I will tell you all about this - and more.

If you join my Link To Me - To Cash In service,
you will become my associate - An Multimedia Adventures Of A Man... Affiliate.

As my associate, I am going to teach you about traffic, media and other tips, tricks,
and techniques - becouse I want my affiliates to kick butt.

Of course, if you are sending lots of traffic to my site, I will probally give you a free product,
with probally a 50% discount on resell and redistribute rights;

or something similar - any ideas are welcome.

Storms, Bombs, Hostages, Strikes, and Terror

Read the news lately?

My god, what a diaster filled, economic breaking, storm developing,
atom smashing world view we have today.

Google News Canada

I agree with Islam that women are sacred, since women have the closest
fundemental concept of God - that being creation, birth of children.

I have not read the news for a while, but what I have read today,
is absurd. Human relations, sucked down the tubes. Terrorists,
acting like retards.

This has been on my mind for a while, and I know many Immegrants
think north americans, in general are stupid - So I imagine this is
just a stupid north american view...

My God, I want all this violence, hate, bigatry, to stop.

I've always wanted that...

A dream land where, you walk out of your apartment, and everyone, where ever you walk,
is smiling, and will to talk.

and everyone, learns alot...

about each other. One another.

My super slow website

I have to say I am sorry, becouse my web site is so slow.

But please, I am trying the best I can, to speed it up - All it needs is a new web server and a T1 line.

Start Here for the Multimedia Adventures Of A Man... - Internet Media Authoring for Home, School, or Business

Yes, I run my web site completely at home, i have one server right now, but I also have two other machines
that I want to attach, and start serving content to the world.

I do not get this though - I read all these Internet Marketers newsletters, all hyped about
Blogs, and RSS feeds - I've had RSS Feeds on my site, for months
now...

And I get thousands of visitors , and my visitors keep increasing - But, it seems it is not becouse of
the rss feeds. But becouse of the site - everything plays a key. I get that, however; I do not
get, how these marketers always make money.

At least that is what they claim.

They talk about tripled profits, and tripled list sibscribers, and tripled visitors.

Odd...

I do not understand what my problem is, I know I really need to start making money.

Is it my super slow site?
I guess it might be. Folks claim to really like my content, my great articles, and insight.

My site is fairly monetised, but darn...
Its like I can't really make a buck at this. It is very distressing.

My visitors cannot even ask a question on the board...
So few even are able to email me.

Now, I know my site does not suck, it has alot of content to draw visitors from search engines.
Alot of the content offers a solution to things you cannot even find on the internet.

And I am sad, becouse I'll come and go, my site will die off, and i'll probally be...

Stuck in the winds of change. Like a typoon - when I want to be a tycoon.

odd it seems, internet dreams...

my site must be super slow.
