My best wishes to you for 20001! May you be more successful than EVER! A warm welcome to all our new subscribers! It's good to have you here with us. To the old timers, especially those with Biz Bits for a year or more - thank you for your support! And don't forget, if you have anything to say, don't be shy. I've been catching up on a lot of work over the holiday period. I also took the opportunity to relax a little for a change. That was great, but meant I didn't get as much done as intended . :-) Still, most of the important stuff's out of the way! Looking back on 2000, it was quite a year. Not the best of years for many perhaps, but certainly eventful. I didn't achieve everything I set out to, but I met some great people, which is almost as good. And 2001? Well ... dot-coms are still dropping like flies. There's a US slowdown, with some analysts talking of a possible recession. Online ad rates and revenue continue to fall. Even Yahoo announced lower than predicted earnings. Expect much media talk and speculation along these lines over the coming months. Ignore the negative vibes. The media in general haven't a clue about the Internet. Looking no further than the big names, they ignore hundreds of thousands of small enterprises earning millions online. Just dig yourself deeper into your niche and get on with business. You can and will make good money online in 2001! And remember ... the Internet is not just the US. Today, 45% of users are from other countries. And that number is growing fast. BB A web site builder requiring zero knowledge of HTML, that researches the best low-competition, high-traffic keywords for you; optimizes pages and keyword densities to guarantee high search engine rankings; automatically submits and monitors pages; can even manage listings at pay-per-click search engines .... Sound unbelievable? That's what I thought ... but it's here: Click Here Better still, it uses the concept of theme sites. This means you are working *with* the search engines - not trying to trick them. And not having to change strategies every few weeks. About 6 months back I mentioned that having a theme-based site would soon be the key to high search engine rankings. That time is upon us. As they employ more sophisticated technology, search engines are already changing the way they rank sites. Themes are in, and creating your site around a single theme will become ever more important.
