Someone said: the modern city is similar with each other. Although it's the first time for me traveling in Hong Kong,I'm not still interested in going out to visit or shopping, I spend most time on meeting and TV.Over all the trip is simple and hurry.
Just in the first day,I go to Victoria Harbour in the evening.the following image is not my works, I want to show how beautiful it's.
By comparison, the photo taken by myself is fear and appalling. The differen couldn't be removal just by more professional digital camera,I think more exercises maybe could improve my artictic impression.The most famous attractions in Victoria Harbour is Avenue of Stars.the Avenue of Stars is located at the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, in where you would find dozens of handprint of super star in chinese cinema, for example Jackie Chan.
Look at, it's so good way to contacts your idol.Another handprint I want to touch is belong to Liu Dehua, but there are so many fans that I couldn't get the chance to take a photo with "Liu Dehua" alone.If more careful,you maybe notice the book in photo,which is guide of traveling in Hong Kong by MTR. In Hong Kong,MTR is convenient and fast, the more crucial is that tourists can find enough tips in MTR and know how to arrive destinations.
Another charm in Hong Kong is shopping, in where you can buy so cheap cosmetics and digital products that someone come here just for shopping. But the advantage is belong to chinese lived in mainland, the low price is coming from low tax rate.
Lady need cosmetics and man like digital products, so most people can find fun while shopping.Tomorrow I would share this fun with visitors.

So how to select keyword isn't simple selecting words.and my english SEO training isn't just learning english spelling.In view of this,I begin to view various news from western website,for example digg.com , cnn.com and other media.
In fact, understanding the search habit of user is helpful for selecting keyword that could get good rank in google with easy work.There are so many keyword that many user concern without lot page indexed by google.Because I'm familiar with Chinese and live in China, so while selecting keyword I could find so many related keyword without competition high-rank website.
But google trend isn't only keyword tool,I ever depend on it and the effect is bad. The keyword displayed on google trend has short timeliness, While arranging the page and indexed by google, the related keyword has dropped out the list.
Although that, I still can learn the search habits while matter happen. happened time, name of parties etc, which is the attention?In this regard there are not one keyword tool can equal to google trend.

Google's smart pricing feature automatically adjusts the cost of a keyword-targeted content click. So if our data shows that a click from a content page is less likely to turn into actionable business results - such as online sales, registrations, phone calls, or newsletter signups - we reduce the price you pay for that click. And this often used example explains how this works more precisely.
As an example of smart pricing, consider two websites, each related to digital photography. The first page features digital camera reviews, while the second offers photography tips. Clicks from the page of photography tips might be charged less, because they are expected to convert into sales less frequently, resulting in lower value for advertisers. Google data determines that clicks from the digital camera reviews convert better, so clicks from this page are not discounted.And since very little is publicly disclosed to publishers about how smart pricing specifically works, there are many questions surrounding it. However, while AdSense was attempting to get a publisher back from YPN, one support team member disclosed more details than perhaps he or she should have.
Here is what that team member disclosed, as well as other tidbits already known about smart pricing.
Smart pricing affects an entire account. It is not on a per page or per site basis. One poorly converting site can result in smart pricing impacting an entire account, even sites completely unrelated to the poorly converting one. Smart pricing is evaluated each week. So removing ads from sites you suspect are converting poorly could result in seeing an adjustment to a higher smart pricing percent in as little as a week. Smart pricing is tracked with a 30 day cookie, so you could be rewarded for new conversions that saw the initial click from your site up to 29 days earlier. Image ads are also affected by smart pricing. With smart pricing, an advertiser could end up paying less than their minimum bid, which would theoretically include the minimum bid price available, meaning publishers earn less for even the minimum valued clicks. Conversions for smart pricing publisher accounts are tracked by those advertisers who have opted into AdWords Conversion Tracking. This raises the question about whether publishers should be removing AdSense from sites they suspect are converting poorly, in order to increase their smart pricing percentage. The loss of revenue could be more than made up with higher smart pricing across the rest of the account. But publishers do not have access to any of the data that would be used to determine which sites (if any) are converting better than others.
It would also be hard to tell this from AdSense stats - even using channels to differentiate sites because one site with a low CPM could actually be converting the highest, but is simply in a lower earning niche. But a publisher could mistaken a low CPM for also being poorly converting and remove those ads... which could result in even smart pricing reducing overall per click earnings even more.
Other things can also affect day to day earnings that have absolutely nothing to do with smart pricing. This means it is extremely hard to track without information AdSense is unwilling to disclose about each account.
This kind of unknown situation makes it very tempting for publishers to want a second AdSense account, especially for publishers that have quality sites as well as "less than quality" sites. While second accounts are hard to get, I bet there are publishers who will be working on getting a new company name for this purpose.
How do you plan on using this information? Removing AdSense - or swapping it for YPN instead - and wait a week or two and see if there seems to be an increase in CPM? Wait and see what others do?
The following picture is print-screen on my adsense account last day.
Page CTR is closed to 2% and impressions is over six thousands, but earnings is just about three dollars. The unit price is so low, this is why I give up chinese site and turn to study english SEO.I know the high price don't always being.First,there are not smart price in adsense for new site. and we couldn't make conclusion just by one click.
About the price of adsense,in fact I didn't trust the high-price keywords listed on anywhere on web, you should know you website have specific rank in adsense database,base on which google calculate your earnings, so don't publish post for "high-price keywords". And the advertisers will pay high price for the professional viewers, the value of your blog's reader is equal to your earnings.
Comparing with unit price, the page impressions and CTR is more importer.at least I think so.

It's benefits for some blog lacking of external link, as my blog.If your blog be created with self domain and hosts, you would need to find mass external link in order to guide google spider.
As for me, I'm in China,it's big trouble to buy a satisfactory host in USA. And I have not enough SEO resources in English.So in my point it's the best choice that begin to study english Seo in blogspot.
There are a tips to create mass link, some forum have high pr and pagerank in google,we can post our link in it. As we are not the black hat seoer, so we need to notice the forum viewers' feelling,
Even so that,Blog Link Building is still key work, but my current focus is enriching the content.In August,I hope I can hold on posting one or two article per day.Not only viewers but also search engine as google would love my blog with high update frequency.
Frequency is necessary,but I find competitor of Busby SEO Challenge have not mind it, most of which haven't update in last week.

Busbywebsolutions held the Busby Search Engine Optimisation World Cup, the challenge is to get better rank in google. The winner is rank 1st in google's result in August 31th.
And the key phrase is Busby SEO Challenge.
First price is US $5000 and first runner-up would get US $2000.
Why I Join Seo Challenge?
There are also SEO contest as Busby Seo Challenge in chinese,but I never join.This time I want to test my optimisation skill during match.
Challenge has started in June 1 and the finish date is August 31,which means I just have less than 30 days to use.
Who care?the result are never the focus I mind.During process,I learning english SEO skills.
Due to the style information is included by css file, most of html file are real content,which is visual for viewers.
But blogspot and wordpress is different with above principle. There are so much style and js script in html file that proportion of the real content is low. did it be friendly with Search engine like google?
Another question is that the size of any page is over 50k,which is friendly with viewers while less than 20k.
It look like so many people be interested in how to make money online,at least I like to make money online, which are the purpose of studying SEO.
The same time I found so many blog blogging how to make money online,on which blogger talk about adsense and other advertisers.
I hope I can follow.
Up to now,there are new location of two blog:
Some Topics would be post some topics for fun.and Pan Bilin would record any knowledge about blog, including make money online and SEO.
But the most important is sharing SEO study with you.
Maybe someone think it's so easy,but if you familiar with baidu, you should know it's friendly that to index personal blog with sub-domain within two days.
All of external link of two blog comes digg.com, I submit the new post while completed.
But some topics and Pan Bilin have not any pagerank in google, so all traffic come from digg user and myself.
Due to link building is an essential and hard work for every blogger,it would be easy if you have other website or blog with high pagerank in google,and you can pay some dollars for back link.
Unfortunately,I have not and I can not.
Are there free method to get mass link?
The first,you can bet any other blogger link to your site or blog.
Although my blog is lack of wonderful post,I still can get positive response from friendly blogger.
Second,there are so many navigation site like to give you link,it's most important that some reader would following the link to you blog.
How to find helpful navigation site?I usually select in bottom of other blogger.
Do you have any more method to buiding your blog's link?Kindly notice me.
