It’s been a few, exciting short months since I decided to dive head-first into my social bookmarking project. After writing a growth update on my projects blog, I decided to expand on my experiences by writing this post, which I hope will help others decide on whether or not they should pursue the same venture, what to expect and what to get out of it. Here are a list of steps and hints I would adhere to if I were (and I probably will) to start anew. (more…)

Introduction

High quality content is the foundation upon which a hub is founded. Poor content, with the appropriate research and marketing process, may attract a constant stream of traffic — but will generally lead to high bounce-back rates and poor reader loyalty (few returning visitors).

This article is about everything but the writing of your hub. I will deal with the pre-production, editing and post-production routines that will help your hub break free of the clutter and gain both visibility and a little profit. (more…)

...

Hubpages have seen some major changes over the past few years but for many they are still a good way to make some money – beware though, not many will get rich using this method. They can be a great way to test the waters and see what niches have potential – just be aware that when they change their policies, it’s not a democracy – you will be at their mercy. This is the main reason I always suggest having your own self hosted websites for the long term. (more…)

Due to popular demand I’m happy to present it to you – a detailed review on mSpy. In this review I’ll aim to answer all of the questions that I’ve received about this cell phone monitoring software. Does it really work? What are the features? How much will it cost me? You’ve got questions and I have the answers. Stay tuned!

Overview

mSpy offers reliable and quality monitoring. While Flexispy offers a more comprehensive range of features, mSpy is not lagging too far behind – plus it’s quite affordable. If the recording features are not a must have then this might be great for you. This product has been an industry leader for several years now. You don’t have to take my word for it just take a look.

If you’re one of my avid review readers then you would probably know that my reviews are mainly based on my personal experience after months of testing the product extensively – and researching it thoroughly.

Present market status – 2018

Since 2011 mSpy has garnered significant popularity (mobile spy is no longer incognito) after the fiasco with StealthGenie which forced many programs to adjust the features that they offer. So if you’re considering any mobile spy software then it’s highly possible that you’ve encountered mSpy.

mSpy has earned their place among some of the most reputable names in the industry. They provide a host of quality monitoring solutions for a wide selection of devices, ranging from cell phones to tablets – and more impressively, they now offer monitoring solutions for PCs.

mSpy abandoned some of its most advanced features, including phone call and ambient recording, after the US government went after StealthGenie. They did this because they wanted to avoid any potential legal issues that could have occurred. Currently, the only company that offers any of these recording features is Flexispy.

And since we’re on the subject, you might want to check out my review on Flexispy.

mSpy does not provide identical features to Flexispy but they are certainly catering to the needs of their customers. They’ve surpassed many companies on the market by offering a lot of the most standard monitoring features with a few of their very own unique features.

I’ll highlight all the pros and cons of using mSpy monitoring software in this review so that you can make an informed decision as to whether or not it’s right for you.

Ensure That The Device Is Supported Before Getting Started

If you’re looking to monitor a Blackberry, Windows, or Symbian phone, then mSpy is not for you. The application is only compatible with Android and iOS devices and you’ll also want to make sure that the device comes with the correct OS version. Once the target device has the correct OS version then you are good to go. I took the liberty of providing you a list of supported OS systems but you should always check their website for updates.

  1. iPhones and iPads– up to iOS 9.x
  2. Android phones – 4.x and upwards

mSpy No Jailbreak Solution

mSpy requires that you jailbreak the target device in order to use the regular version of the software – as with all regular spy software. However, they have released a no jailbreak option in order to accommodate users who do not wish to go through the jailbreaking process.

Now before we move on, you should understand that this option is not a software- hence you do not have to install an application on the device being monitored. To use this option, iCloud backup will need to be enabled on the iPhone or iPad and you’ll need the user’s username and password. There’s no need to come into physical contact with the phone if you’re using this option.

It works by allowing you to review reports sent to the mSpy dashboard of information on the user’s iCloud backup. The reports will include:

  • Call history
  • Text messages sent from and to the device
  • Internet history
  • Phone contacts
  • Upcoming events

While it’s a good option if you don’t want to go through the jailbreaking process it does have its drawbacks. For instance, the reporting is very limited and it doesn’t offer any advanced features. You can set different time intervals to receive a report but real time monitoring is not possible with this option.

So the good thing is that you won’t have to jailbreak the cell phone – the bad this is that you’ll have to forgo some features.

If you’re interested in the non-jailbreak option then you can check it out here.

Now without further ado let’s look at the regular mSpy program.

Quality Monitoring Features

mSpy provides all the standard monitoring features that you can expect from a company today. You can use it to monitor: the device’s location with GPS tracking, phone calls and messages coming to and from the device, online activities, and emails. But let’s get to the good stuff – these features are offered by nearly all companies today. The real question here is – what new features are they bringing to the table?

Geo Fencing

This feature uses GPS tracking to keep you up-to-date on the whereabouts of the device on a map. In addition to providing timely logs of where the device is throughout the day, it also allows you to set border restrictions and set up email alerts to notify you when the phone is no longer within border limits. Parents will especially enjoy this feature – I can attest to the fact that this feature works perfectly after testing it thoroughly.

Monitor Chat and Social Network Platforms

Mobile message apps and social media have become the main communication mediums for the younger generation, making this one of the most useful features. mSpy provides monitoring for a lot of popular messaging and social platforms so that’s a plus.

Currently it allows you to monitor the following apps: Twitter, Facebook, SnapChat, Line, WhatsApp, iMessage, Skype, Viber, and Blackberry Messenger. mSpy is currently the only software that offers monitoring for SnapChat and with the app becoming a social phenomenon it’s certainly a catch.

Block Apps

This is yet another great tool for parents to use. With this feature, parents get to decide which applications their kids can access. Plus if you want to, you can even prevent them from using the internet completely – you’ll be taking them back to the good old days when all you could do was send SMS text messages with your cell phone.

mSpy Keylogger

This was one of the unique features that I was referring to when I stated that mSpy offers much more than standard features. With this feature you can review everything that the user types on the device that’s being monitored. This includes text messages, passwords, and social network login details. Unfortunately for iOS users this feature is only available for Android devices.

Call Blocking Feature

This feature allows you to block incoming calls from specific numbers. It comes in handy if you’re trying to sever ties with a friend without having to change your number.

Web Blocking

With this feature you can block access to designated websites. Employers will especially love this feature. It’s a great way to prevent employees from straying onto Facebook or Instagram during work hours. It’s also a great way to restrict children’s social media activities – keep them in check!

Wi-Fi Points

This provides you with information on all Wi-Fi networks, private or public, that the device has been connected to. And it doesn’t stop there – it goes even further by allowing you to monitor the device even with GPRS off. It also informs you of the time that the device was connected to each unique Wi-Fi network and allows you to limit access to public networks.

Device Management Features

If you’re like me than you’ll love anything feature that takes away the hassle of monitoring the device. With this feature you get to choose which activities you want to be notified about. You can choose if you want to be notified about location changes of the device or when the device is connected to Wi-Fi.

Unlimited phone Change

This feature gives you the freedom to transfer your subscription to another compatible device. So in the event that the target phone is no longer in use then you don’t have to worry. You can simply install it onto a new device but first you’ll have to ensure that the subscription is deactivated on the old device from the control panel.

Security

This feature covers data wiping, app control, and password locking, to name a few. With the amount of private information that we keep on our cell phones today, the security of our phones is right up there with our homes. With the security features you can erase data or lock the device from a remote location; and this had been a major selling point.

Does It Stay Hidden On The Device Being Monitored?

This is one of the most frequent questions that I come across about this program, especially after MobileSpy made their software 100% visible on devices that it was installed on. mSpy didn’t adopt this feature and still remains completely hidden on any device it’s installed to. The person using the device will remain oblivious to the fact that the software is on the device unless you tell them – but remember don’t go breaking the law, I can’t stress this enough.

Customer Service Rating?

Good customer support is a feature that you should always look for when you decide to invest in a spy software or anything technological for that matter. After testing mSpy, I think it’s safe to tell you that it is sufficient but of course there is always room for improvement. It’s not perfect – but better than a lot I’ve come across.

You can chat live with a support agent from the official website or you can contact them via email or through a phone call. Phone support is always appreciated – especially during emergencies. Be advised though that you might have to try more than once to reach customer support by phone. Like most companies they seem to get a lot of calls.

If you’re left on hold you can always browse the website for any useful information. Their website is clear, features a lot of useful information, and is fairly easy to navigate.

Like most companies mSpy offers a ten-day money back guarantee to everyone who purchases a package. So if you’re not satisfied you can always ask for a refund and move along.

Demo available – live

This is extremely useful for all first time users. I always recommend that first time users utilize the live demo. It teaches you about all the features and how they function in addition to giving you a real feel of how the application works altogether.

mSpy Price packages

mSpy offers two different packages, both of which I have tested.

The Basic package offers standard features including text message monitoring, call log, internet history and GPS tracking. As you might have guessed the premium package is where you will find the advanced features.

I have tested them both.

  • Basic 1 month $39.9
  • Basic 3 months $59.99
  • Premium 1 month $69.99
  • Premium 3 months $119.99
  • Premium 6 months $149.99
  • Premium 12 months $199.99

You can make payments using Paypal, credit card, debit card, or wire transfer – the 10 day money back guarantee applies to each. A longer subscription gives you better value for your money. However, if you will only be using the application temporarily then the shorter period is a great choice. I admire the fact that they offer options for their customers – after all the one size fits all belief doesn’t apply here.

The Verdict

mSpy offers some quality features and that’s why they’ve managed to stay afloat in the crowded spy software monitoring market. There no jailbreak option makes them more attractive to a lot of customers and the keylogger feature is not common among other companies.

It’s still not as advanced as FlexiSpy but it’s doing pretty well if you ask me. Their credibility, experience and fair pricing are certainly some of their best selling points that put them right next to their competitors.

mSpy might be the best software from your perspective while FlexiSpy may be the best for someone else – it all depends on your individual needs. However, if you’re not interested in live call and ambient recording then you can’t lose with mSpy.

I hope I was able to answer all your questions about mSpy in this review. If you have any further questions, let me know in the comment section.

...

You go into a store, and what you thought was just a camera they used to catch thieves is actually sending your face to a mainframe in order for it to always recognize your face. You think logging into Facebook is safe, but your password is being stored in a security station all the way in Beijing.

It sounds like something from a bad comic book, but this stuff is real, and it’s happening to you all the time.

Most people don’t know or really care that they’re being constantly monitored every day. It doesn’t have to be at a secure base, either. You go to the store and you’re monitored. You make a deposit and you’re being watched. Even talking on your phone could be the grounds for a monitoring from phone spy apps.

So how do you prevent this? Well, the first step you’ve already accomplished. You know you’re being monitored now, so you’re ready to protect yourself against those who are out to spy on you. So in this article, you’ll learn how to protect yourself against all sort of ways people can spy on you.

Face Recognition

As we’ve said, the camera in the store is no longer there to catch thieves anymore. In 2013, UK retailer Tesco was in the process of installing OptimEyes. OptimEyes is a face-scanner that they were going to use for marketing. As you expect, the scanner scans your face and determines your gender and age, and in the petrol stations, it would give you ads based on products they thought you’d be interested in. You can see how this can go wrong.email scams

This isn’t just one case, however. Face First, a facial recognition company, is offering more surveillance so that retailers can use your face. If you’re a shoplifter, they can figure that out and be aware of your presence. If you’re a loyal customer, they can use this to give you special treatment by giving you good offers so that you keep shopping.

This doesn’t sound too bad at first. Criminals can be easily caught, and you can get more offers with products meant for you. But for many, this is a definite privacy concern, and it’s easy to see how this can be used for malicious purposes. In 2012, as this was being developed, the Consumers Union told the FTC that this technology could be a privacy reach for customers.

In that letter, they said this:
“The ubiquitous installation of facial recognition devices in malls, supermarkets, schools, doctor’s offices and city sidewalks could seriously undermine individual’s desire and expectation for anonymity.”

The CU mentioned that advertising products to children could cause obesity to worsen, and if a teenager is targeted weight loss products, they could feel more self-conscious. These sound like slightly silly concerns, but they have some serious issues as well.

There are no rules in place that prevents companies from collecting this data and storing it, putting all your behaviors in their own personal database.

In that letter, they continue:
“Facial detection and recognition software could offer consumers a number of tangible benefits. At the same time, we cannot ignore the fact that these technologies pose significant privacy risks and seriously threaten consumers’ right to anonymity.”

Of course, you can’t wear a mask in a store to hide your face. Just beware of stores that use this technology. Research and make sure that you don’t have your privacy breached.

Webcam Breach

Once upon a time, there was a company called Blackshades. Blackshades made and sold software that allowed hackers to breach into people’s webcams if they’re running Windows. This allowed hackers to control people’s webcams.

In May of 2014, 90 people involved in Blackshadeswere arrested. One college student who ran the program was arrested for hacking a webcam to get nudes of Miss Teen USA.

Is this a concern, or is it just something public figures should worry about? Consider this: over $350,000 in sales were made for this program, with thousands of different sales. Over 700,000 people in 100 different countries have been hacked, most of them ordinary people like you. It’s possible for someone to hack your webcam.

So all you have to do is turn off your webcam and you won’t have to worry about this software, right? Not so fast. The program also grabs your keystrokes and passwords, screenshots your computer, and snoops through your files.

Thankfully, they only way you can install it is by falling for a phishing email that gives you a link to install that software. If you know how to recognize phishing emails, you should be safe from this threat.

But even then, it’s still possible. Don’t think that only computer illiterate people can fall for this stuff. Telegraph writer Sophie Curtis tried to get her hacker friend to hack into her computer. They learned about Sophie, and then they made an email that matched her personality. This caused Sophie to click on it, and soon everything in her computer was hacked. So remember that anyone can be fooled.

False Cell Towers

It was September 2014. There were rumors about fake cell phone towers that listened in on phone calls across the entire country. It sounds like a poor conspiracy theory, but investigator Aaron Turner, who owns the security firm Integricell, discovered they were real.

Turner revealed to The Blaze this information, which showed that these towers were built to deceive your phones to think that the tower was the only one they could access in your area.

Turner quotes this:
“These towers are tricking your phone into saying ‘I need to talk 9-1-1 information to you,’ but then it doesn’t.”

These towers are mostly in Pennsylvania and the downtown of Washington DC, and they can infiltrate your communications and look at the contents of your phone.

Other investigators have revealed that these towers were real. People began speculating what they were. Was it a secret government conspiracy intending to spy on your phone? Is it espionage by another country? Is it just a group of hackers?

Two months later, we might have found the answer. In November, the Wall Street Journal revealed that the Department of Justice placed mobile towers on planes and used a device known as DIRTBOX. This was made by Digital Receiver Technology, and it acts as a phone tower to mobile phones. It’s like a middle man, and it breaks through your phone’s security and extracts info from it.

The Department flew these planes around cities so that they could get as most info as possible from people’s phones.

“Planes are equipped with devices—some known as ‘dirt boxes’ to law-enforcement officials because of the initials of the Boeing Co. unit that produces them—which mimic cell towers of large telecommunications firms and trick cellphones into reporting their unique registration information.”

This means that the towers can find the phone’s identity and location info. This means that the law could track anyone who has a phone, which is a majority of people. The ACLU, thankfully looked through the documents and revealed where these devices are being used. So you can look at those and turn off your phone when you’re near them.

The laws can’t keep up with the advancement in technology, allowing authorities to use loopholes to spy on people as much as they can. Look at the ACLU investigation page if you’re concerned about their efforts. If you live in the area on the map, odds are your phone’s data has already been looked at by the law.

Hacking from China’s Cyberwar

So you probably think that only your country’s government is the only entity that spies on you. However, other countries can do as well. In October, the Washington revealed that security research had revealed a group called Axiom, which was a Chinese cyberespionage group.

Axiom tried attacking western government so that they could get as much info about policies about China as they could. Shortly before the Washington Post revealed this, the FBI had given warnings to US industries about Axiom, telling them to be alert and make sure they weren’t hacking sensitive information.

The FBI says that this group is state-sponsored, and that it’s been around for around four years, hacking different companies. So if you work for a major corporation that has lots of secrets, you may be in Axiom’s crosshairs.

Axiom uses zero day exploits of the Windows OS, which is one of the most advanced hacking skills you can do. They can hack your computer and gain access to the company’s secrets. Your computer can be at risk as well.

So your best bet is to talk to your security group about this and make sure everything is safe.

Business Conference Spying

Congrats, you’ve been chosen to be at your company’s conference! It’s set in a cool location, and you’re raring to go. You pack your stuff, including all your company supplied accessories, such as your laptop and your phone. However, by doing so, you’re actually putting your company at risk.

You see, if you don’t secure your devices while traveling, you’re at risk. The hackers know that travel is when a company is most susceptible to hacking. Conferences are always when they’ll strike and gather as much valuable data as they can.

You, however, can play the part and avoid these security weaknesses when you have to travel. For instance, you should not hold a videoconference over a hotel network. It’s insecure, and allows hackers to get in.

Hotel rooms are always easy for thieves to steal your devices from as well. Do not open you r company devices in public, as people can see what you’re doing from behind, and never call someone, either, unless you’re in complete privacy. When presenting, make sure that your presentation is scanned for any viruses that could potentially leak it.

Does this sound a bit paranoid for your tastes? Well, according to Carl Roper, who wrote the book, “Trade Secret Theft, Industrial Espionage, and the China Threat”, there’s a Chinese espionage effort going on that wants to get your information from presentations in conferences.

In the book, he says this:
“Conferences with such subject areas as composite materials, missiles, engineers, lasers, computers, marine technology, space, microelectronics, chemical engineering, radars, armaments, and optical communications are just some of the more interesting ones that the Chinese will try to attend. Data from these types of conferences will be among the most significant contributions to their projects.”

In truth, it’s unknown if conference information in a presentation will actually provide agents with secrets of the trade, but presentations that are uncensored can reveal some huge clues about the company’s secrets.

So if you’re presenting for your company, show it to the Legal or Communications department for approval. Many companies require you to do this, so not only does it protect the company, but your job as well.

Install laptop theft devices that will indicate if someone’s stealing your laptop. Keep it locked up, and make sure all data is encrypted. If you have a USB drive or a memory stick, encrypt and password protect it. Make sure your cellphone screen is protected as well.

Don’t Be Paranoid. Be Aware!

People seem to think that being aware of ways they can be spied means that they have to don a tinfoil hat and worry constantly about people listening in and reading their emails without their consent. It does not. All it means is that you should always take precautions if you’re in a situation where you need to transmit sensitive or personal data.

All you need to do this is just encrypt your data and use different resources to do so. There are plenty of ways to do this, including improving your security. You can evade hacker and even government surveillance by making sure your devices are locked down.

After that, do not be too afraid. This will make your life much worse. Instead, live your life the way you want to, all without worrying about people who are out to get you. You’ve done all you can to protect yourself, after all.

Perhaps the most common present-day dilemma: Android vs. Windows Phone? Some would say it’s not really a dilemma since Android holds a much bigger share of market, but for those who know a thing or two about smartphones and operating systems, it’s not about popularity but about getting what they want.

It’s hard to dismiss one in favor of the other since both are exceptional in their own right, but it would be surprising if they weren’t since they have two of largest companies behind them: Google and Microsoft.

Google, of course, is behind Android and has used all of its resources, power and influence to propel this OS into the stratosphere. Giving you a straight answer about which one you should go with is a rather impossible task, so we’ve instead decided to take a closer look at Android first, and analyze its pros and cons. More on it below.

Why You Should Choose Android:

Being the most popular doesn’t always necessarily mean being the best, but it does indicate a lot of things. Because android security spyAndroid is so popular, smartphone manufacturers will race to offer as many different models as they can that run it, at every price range.

If we take iOS out of competition, Android has the best support on the market with a virtually endless number of different apps in Google Play store.

But software developers aren’t the only ones which have been quick to hop aboard the Android train. Media conglomerates have also joined, which means you can gain access to your favorite music, movies and TV shows instantaneously.

One of the best aspects of Android is the high level of flexibility and customization, which is something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by both users and hardware manufacturers alike. This is mirrored by all the different third-party devices for Android that are present on the market, along with numerous other accessories.

As is the case with every new OS, Android wasn’t perfect from the get-go, but today, it offers everything that a great OS should: simple, intuitive user interface, great looks and optimal performance. We’ve already mentioned that there are simply too many apps for us to count.

Why You Shouldn’t Choose Android:

While, on one hand, variety is a good thing, because there are so many different Android phones to choose from it’s also a double-edged sword. It’s great if you want to get an Android device for very little money, but if you are willing to spend a bit more, it does not necessarily mean you will be getting your money’s worth.

Security can be a worry to many users. Android is a lot more open than some better protected operating systems such as Apple iOS. One major problem is that Android devices are much easier to monitor or Spy on – just a thought! Major spy software products such as FlexiSpy and mSpy work very easily on Android devices.

The biggest problem, however, stems from the fact that, with so many diverse models, some compatibility issues are bound to happen as a consequence of it. While some accessories and third-party devices might be compatible with Android, it doesn’t mean that they will be compatible with that particular Android device.

To make matters worse, compatibility issues aren’t just limited to hardware. There is also the fact that hardware manufacturers aren’t forced in any way to keep their phones up to date with the latest versions of Android. But, even if they do, it can create a whole other set of problems, because some of them, like Samsung or HTC, make their own version of Android in order to get a more custom feel and a unique experience.

The Android user experience is therefore far from uniform. The app quality is also uneven, due to relatively unrestricted access for all developers, which also means increased security risk.

I’ve quit my job to take care of my kids. It was not an easy decision to make but it’s the one I’ve never regretted, not even for a single moment. You’ve all seen what goes on in the world today and what today’s kids are capable of, in a negative sense. In my opinion, it’s mostly due to the fact that parents don’t spend enough time with their kids for one reason or another, to teach them right from wrong and how to become better people. I wanted the best for my kids, and to watch them grow up to be the best they can be, and in order to do that, I had to quit my job and become a stay-at-home mom.

The only flaw in my plan was the fact that it made my husband the sole breadwinner of the family. The money I made was decent, and we would surely miss it. So, after a couple of months trying to get used to the reduced budget, I figured it wouldn’t work in the long run, so I needed to take a more proactive approach.

Opportunities Online – Something Differentelliptical website reviews

Obviously, I couldn’t leave home, because that would kind of defeat the whole purpose of staying at home and taking care of the family, so I would need to work from home. I browsed the internet and to my disappointment most of the jobs offered there were for software developers and web designers. Sadly, I’m not either of those.

But, I remembered that a friend of mine from work started a business on the side with her husband. She started a review website called Elliptical Machine Advice.com where she posted reviews of elliptical machines and lots of information about these popular trainers. The best thing about it was, she didn’t even have to invest any money into the equipment, seeing as she didn’t stock any, being an Amazon affiliate. It is a growing way to make money online and something a little different. You can get paid a commission for sending people to Amazon, if they buy something.

Truth be told, I didn’t know much about that kind of exercise equipment, which made me even more frustrated. Luckily my friend assured me that she knew nothing about it as well at first but there was plenty of info to be found on almost anything on the web. She gave me a crash course on selecting topics to target and how to get started. It is really interesting and not too technical – although there is a lot of work to do if you want to be successful.

Feeling more courageous, I decided to give it a shot and so I started a couple of blogs and websites myself. It took me a while to get a hang of the writing, but after a few weeks I could churn out plenty of articles in no time.

The money wasn’t much at first. In fact there wasn’t any, since I’ve decided to avoid putting up ads on my blog at first, which effectively killed my chance of making any money off of it, but I had a plan. I would hold off on advertising until I acquired a sufficient number of regular daily visitors, hoping they wouldn’t run once I finally introduced the ads. Luckily, they didn’t. Even better, I started making some money right away, and it couldn’t have come at a better time, since our home budget was spread a little thinner each month.

Writing articles for my blogs only takes a few hours every day, which leaves plenty of time for my kids and my husband. If you’re in a similar situation to mine – give it a shot, it might just be the best decision you’ve ever made. I don’t expect to get rich anytime soon but it is a welcome addition to our household income.

The internet is great place for just about everything. It allows you access to all kinds of information like books, music or video within seconds, simply by clicking a few buttons. You are also able to keep in touch with your friends at all times, no matter where they are in the world. But apart from using it for education and entertainment, the internet can also be used as a means to provide you with an additional income or even allow you to make a living full-time online.

There are numerous benefits of this. For example, you would be your own boss. If you make a living online there will no one breathing down your neck which makes your life less stressful. You will be able to abandon the fear of losing your job too, since you are self-employed and ultimately in control. Those among you who hate getting up early in the morning, or lead very busy lives will appreciate the fact that the work hours are completely flexible. And speaking of hours, you work as much as you want, depending on how much you are looking to make.

As for how you can make money online, it is possible to market and sell almost anything including things which are not physical products. Obviously, software developers and engineers have the edge, but you can also make money online as a designer, photographer, artist, voice actor, architect or a writer. Information type websites can be a great way to make money online, blogging.

Blogging Model

I’d like to talk about how you can make money by blogging and blogging for medical niche websites in particular. You see, a career in medicine is very promising and people are looking for more information about it every day. For example websites like this one offers a lot of information about specific nurse salaries: Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses and LPN, LVN salaries. It also covers things like – chances of employment, and where to look for a job. One of my friends is a medical professional, and seeing as she has a lot of experience in the field, we’ve decided to partner up and start a similar site, which would provide real-life impressions and advice for those who are looking to become trained medical professionals.medical blogging

There is an unlimited earning potential when it comes to blogging about medicine/salary, since nursing is shaping up to be one of the most promising careers, with an estimated steady growth in the next ten years. As such, people are reading about it and looking for useful information and facts on the subject, and that’s where we come in. The other great thing about this type of niche is that the cost of online advertizing is quite high – meaning greater earnings potential for your websites.

If you happen to be working in the medical field, and have something useful that you can share, give it a shot. You might just be surprised how well it goes. Plus, you would be providing a valuable service to those who are looking to make career out of caring for others, like yourself. There are lots of opportunities if you get a little creative.

Of course, you can make money blogging about anything you are passionate about. It’s even better if you are knowledgeable in several fields, because you can run several blogs at the same time and earn more money that way. If you have any experience in medicine, I advise you to try that particular niche first, because it is highly sought after, and that means you can potentially earn more. Just another idea of how you can get started making a business online.

I’m guessing you have all seen the movie. When it first came out, “Matrix” rekindled the movie goers’ interest in sci-fi. The combination of superb and innovative special effects, intelligent plot, and an original story was an absolute critical and commercial smash. I loved it, and I’m not really a fan of sci-fi, especially if it takes place in outer space. Except for Star Wars.

But “Matrix” was much less nerdy than your usual sci-fi vehicle. In fact, a lot of people could relate to it, because it takes place on present-day Earth, and a scenario that is not as far-fetched as it might seem at first.

The concept of the machines taking over is hardly new, and has been the subject of numerous other motion pictures. Even though we tend to think we are too smart to let anything like that ever happen, I’m going to take the opportunity to say that it is already happening, and has been happening for some time.

Of course, it’s not nearly as obvious or brutal as in the movies, but it’s rather more subtle. While our bodies are not being used as a power source, we do put a lot of time and energy into being online, using computers, tablets and smartphones. We are connected 24/7, and I think, at this pace, we will burn out quickly. Our bodies and our minds are not designed to keep up with this breakneck tempo.disconnect from matrix

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others these are our “Matrix”. But, apart from the difference I have already explained, unlike the characters in the movie, we are willingly sacrificing our time and attention to be accessible anywhere we are, at all times.Not to mention our security!

We are failing to realize that it is taking up too much of our time. But the fact that we are online for most of the day also indicates that we are, first and foremost, social beings.

In the past, we used to interact with one another in person, go out for a cup of coffee, or a drink. Now the interaction has shifted toward the virtual realm. While that has its benefits, it’s nowhere near being a good substitute for actual human interaction.

In my opinion, stuff like social media should be used to complement and enrich our lives, not take over them, but it is happening, and it’s our own fault. We have all this amazing technology at our disposal, but I don’t think we are ready to use.

It’s like a Ferrari being given to a teenager. But, I’m not looking to start a revolution here. I would be more than happy if half the people reading this article would realize that social media exist because of us, not the other way around. The sooner we do that, the better.

Go out and have a cup of coffee with someone whose company you enjoy. And put down the phone. The internet is still going to be there an hour later.

Note: This is about PhoneSheriff Investigator Edition, not the regular PhoneSheriff.

You may have heard about PhoneSheriff Investigator Edition, but what is it? Essentially, it’s computer software that lets you spy or rather, monitor your kid’s Apple devices, and Apple only. Since it’s installed directly on your PC (Not the device), you don’t have to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to do this, saving you lots of time and effort.

This is a plus, since many do not like to use monitoring apps on Apple devices, since they need to be jailbroken. Monitoring devices has its uses. It’s great to see what your kids are up to, for instance. It monitors through iCloud, so you do need the target users’ ID and password.

mSpy have a similar program for monitoring the iPhone without needing to Jailbreak – as well as regular spy phone software. Both work in a similar way – using iCloud backup service. Reflex Software Guides has a good write up / review of mSpy – check it out.

What Do You Need?

You need an apple device such as an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, and you need to make sure it’s monitoring with softwarerunning iOS5 or higher. The device needs a backup using iCloud, which is Apple’s cloud storage. It is free. You need their ID and password, as established, an internet connection and a PC running Windows Vista or higher. For the program, it is just one off lifetime license. You don’t need to pay any hidden monthly fees.

What Does It Monitor?

  • Contacts -The contacts and details on the device.
  • GPS Location -The location of the last backup on a map that is not in real time.
  • Call History
  • Texts – Logs from all messages sent and received.
  • Photos
  • Safari Bookmarks – Does only bookmarks. No web history.

The program works very differently to regular cell phone spy software but it can monitor some of the same activities.

This program doesn’t have full monitoring capabilities but it’s a great substitute if you don’t want to jailbreak or can’t get the jailbroken apps to work. See it as that, and don’t expect full-on monitoring capabilities. Android versions of the software are actually much more powerful – with more features.

How Do You Use It?

First, set up your iCloud on your target device. After that, install PhoneSheriff IE on your PC. Sign in using the iCloud login info, and then view the logs. It’s that easy. No hardcore hacking skills required. ICloud synchs up with the device at pre-set intervals, so you can look at new logs each time it is synced with backup. This is why this program has limitations – no real time monitoring.

It doesn’t hack into the phone, but instead pulls everything from the backup. And if the iCloud doesn’t update, you can’t see everything, and GPS locations are dated. With the fact that you need the target’s ID and password, this is best suited for your own children where you control and own the device.

Remember to stay legal when using any of these monitoring products – you can’t legally just spy on people’s cell phones.

The Verdict

This product works as it should, and the company that made it has an excellent reputation. For parents,parental control software it is revolutionary. You can see your kids’ data without them knowing, all without jailbreaking. It has it limits, and is not a hacking device you see in spy movies, but it’s great for monitoring kids.

Don’t compare it to a normal spy tracker and it’s great. At a one-time fee of $79, it’s a good deal, and you can monitor an unlimited amount of devices. You can also try out a trial version if you want to.

You don’t need any payment info, and it displays few logs. It’s great if you want to try it out beforehand.

Summarized Details

Only works on Apple devices with an iOS 5 or above.

Devices must have iCloud, and the user must have the iCloud’s ID and password.

The target won’t know you’re monitoring them.

No jailbreak required. Just a PC with Windows Vista or above.

Monitor as many devices as you want.

A onetime fee.

A free trial as well.

A little shy of 10 days ago, Paul Deeds, one of Hubpages co-founders (who also found the time to grace one of my posts with a comment!) announced a small improvement to the already fantastic keyword tools that Hubpages offers on all its hubs.

Up until this point in time, I had exclusively used third-party tools such as Google Analytics to monitor and tweak my content, but this announcement compelled me to take a closer look at such an easily readable and accessible tool.

The layout is extremely simple and long-and-short of your keyword efforts do leap into the foreground. But could I trust this tool to pay dividends over pricey, award-winning third party software? In short, do I gain anything by tweaking my hubs accordingly?

In order to test, I took one of my best performing hubs, along with one of my worst and did a little tweaking using solely the integrated Hubpages keyword tool.

The hub on the left represents one of my worst performing hubs, shown here over a span of over 2 years, holding steady at Keywordsaround 8-10 views a day. A week ago I noticed that the new keyword tool addition, the “title suggestion tool” was flagging the fact that most of my inbound track were arriving to my hub via a separate core key word.

The results were startling. While I know that updating a hub, regardless of improvements, will lead to a temporary internal boost in traffic. The moment Google spared me’old tank a minute, it duly tapped into it’s new keyword with force. A week later, my organic search engine visits jumped by almost 500%.

Bear in mind, that 2 years ago I had very little knowledge of how to target niches and golden keywords. But given time, the Hubpages tool was able to tell me where to aim my hub.

*Red line denotes when changes were made
The results on one of my prolific hubs was less noticeable. Partly because I had done my homework beforehand, and partly because the title suggestion was noting that much of my traffic was coming from less competitive keywords. Given time though, holding steady and a sprinkling of marketing would spur my current keywords to new heights. The most I was willing to change were fluffy stop-words which might make the hub more appealing on a search engine.

My overall conclusion with regards to this handy tool is that it is absolutely fantastic when it comes to optimizing dated hubs and recycling articles in an attempt to breath new life into them. Added to which, the detailed key phrase tool may give you an idea on how to improve the search engine aesthetics of your titles.

Despite this, it remains a feature and should not replace conventional keyword research (it might even harm it — don’t fall for overly empty and easy niches) and I’m sure the Hubpages team would agree with me in this regard.
