Mobile Phone Insurance- Whats the Benefits?

Theft of Mobile phones is on the rise and the more popular mobile phones are becoming the more theft that will occur.  Now manufactures of mobile phones are releasing new better models which of course will cost more. Therefore we are at greater risk if we don’t get mobile phone insurance.

  1. Here is a few benefits of mobile insurance:
  2. Mobile phone can be repaired and replaced at no extra cost.
  3. If you loose your mobile phone, you will get an replacement phone soon so that you will not be left without mobile phone for a long periods of time.
  4. If another person makes calls while it lost you will not be responsible for the cost.
  5. You will be covered even if overseas.
  6. Mobile phone insurance will cover against water damage, fake calls and theft
  7. Your premiums are low and affordable.

Whereas if your mobile phone was not insured and it was stolen, you would have pay all the calls made by the other person and you have pay for a new mobile which will cost you time and money and don’t forget telling your friends and family for the new number etc.

Even before you get to that stage, you need to check that your phone is not already covered by any other insurance you already have. For example, some good home insurance policies will cover your possessions whilst away from the home and, unless specifically excluded, that should include your mobile phone. Check with your insurance company and ask the question.

If you loose your mobile phone, all you can do is inform the police and fill out all the different forms. So, it is always safe to buy and affordable mobile phone insurance policy to avoid the trouble.

Quality Content with Contextual Links Will Win Over Search Engines in The Long Run

Beginning early this year, certain search engine made some changes to their search ranking,   the reason cited is that google wanted to provide more relevant results, according to their official blog, this change impacts 11.8% organic search results, in another word, almost 12% of google search results are useless or of low quality. The update was initiated more than a year ago, maybe that’s why some of my ranks dropped out of first 10 pages, the good thing is that those keywords promoted by content rich links are not affected, a few of these keywords ranked better than ever, it’s almost a sure thing that plain link building loses all it’s attraction, at least in the eye of google.

So what exactly is linking campaign the old way? a large percentage of SEO firms will do this,  they put your links on websites which only exist for holding links, the content on those sites will never be updated, and most of them are useless, we call these sites link spamming sites. Now google algorithm probably will weed out these sites, the links on those spamming sites won’t work anymore.  

Examples will be great for explanation. It was quite some time ago, I started promote the keyword, Mini Load Binders, it was old way of link building all the way, almost all the sites I got link from had too many links, and those sites had only links, no real content at all. I would give credit where credit is due, this linking strategy worked, finally the rank improved a lot,   the honeymoon lasted until google changed it’s mind. Now let’s look at another keyword, chain puller , most back links for this keyword are from articles and posts, not too many plain links have been built, you can imagine how this keyword ranks. Now contextual links win the battle, then what? It all boils down to content, so if you create great content, you will attract readers as well as search engines. It’s never too late to build good blogs for business purpose, take a look at this blog, top smartphone , in the beginning I just post to it casually, lately I added nice stuff left and right, and to my surprise, I have high ranks for some of  competitive keywords. As we can see, creating quality content and blog marketing is what we have to do to get great result. Say you’re building your own bogging network, for instance Ratchet Chain Binders, you will have the power to push any sites up in search engines.

Bottom line is that you should create great content, publish and share with people, in the mean time advertise your business with your content, as long as you don’t stop doing this, you will win over customers and search engines. Persistence and patience are the keys to success, nothing will automatically improve overnight, it doesn’t matter you’re doing SEO or advertising your business, keep writing, publishing, sharing and creating, you will see the day of success. One of the best articles directories is EzineArticle, google will index a new article on ezine promptly, and some popular blogs will get your post indexed in minutes, there venues are ideal for promoting your site, I believe you should see for yourself, Sash Chains, explains some interesting concepts, nice writing, good content, published on popular site, all these points make it perfect for SEO.

Last but not least, we have hot social media now, no one can afford to not using them. One thing you can do for your blogs is to install twitter tools, get a twitter account and API keys, link your blog to twitter, you should choose to post a tweet for every new post, it’s simple and elegant, no one should miss this tool out.

What is a mobile home built in 1984 worth?

I want to buy a mobile home that was built in 1984. It is in decent condition. 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms. One room has some damage to the wall and ceiling but nothing too major. This is located in pennsylvania. I see people selling their mobile homes everyday for small cost. The owner of this home wants $9500. I want to pay $7000. Is this fair?

I think the 7k is too much. Not sure of prices of trailers but old trailers have old appliances, old wiring, old everything and just aren’t worth much. Check around and see what else you can get for 7K. You don’t have to buy anything you think is overpriced. Look online and see what’s for sale and what it looks like so you know what you are doing.

Which programming language should I use to build a mobile website for my third year project?

I am focusing on RIM (blackberry) devices. I already design websites for desktop computers but never tried for a mobile website.

For my third year project I though I would create a website for mobile devices.

Is it possible to be done using php/mysql ? Simple HTML/CSS?

Do you know any books that would show you how to do it?

Any advice is helpful. Thanks a lot.

yes, it is very possible to make web pages with anything that is able to provide the data to client over http(s) in a format, generally html, that is supported by the device in question (preferably detected from request headers). The main point is to keep in mind the limitations (or akwardness) in using mobile devices — so keep it simple!

As for RIM i have no idea even as to what kind of browser support it has. In my country i have never seen one of them. icon wink Which programming language should I use to build a mobile website for my third year project?

Personally i do hower wish that more "apps" for mobile devices wouldn’t be shorcuts or simple wrappers to web sites. So if you target mobiles, make a real application!

Can a mobile home with a bent frame be straightened or leveled?

Like the mobile homes in Arkansas waiting to go to Katrina victims I own a mobile home that has a "bent frame". It has a high corner. Does anyone know if it will settle and equalize over time… or, a method of correction?

YES is can be leveled, dont bother to straighten it, damage is done and no need to weaken the metal anymore, usual way to level is to start high to low, with this situation start center and work both ways out (if it is bent curve up/down) if it is bent out/in (creating a C) then it wont matter, no need for any special complications and no need to be an architect, hands on experience works better

How To Purchase A Manufactured Home

Purchasing a home or make any large purchase is sometimes intimidating to the first time buyer and even to seasoned buyers. I hope that in some way this article will help you make an informed decision about buying your mobile home. I’ve been in the mobile home business for a number of years and am tired of seeing good hard working people get scammed when buying a manufactured home.

Sometimes your local mobile home dealer and/or his sales team isn’t as honest as they should be when describing the attributes of their product. They will exaggerate or sometimes even lie about their products, warranties, and their setup crew and what they will or will not do when setting up your new home.

There are things a person can do to minimize the possibility of getting taken by your dealers.

1. Do a lot of comparison shopping either in person or online. Find out how the various homes are built: the R factor of the insulation, 4 inch or 6 inch walls, pitched and shingled roof, vinyl siding, etc. Don’t compare apple to oranges.

2. Do a search at your local library or online as to price, features, construction methods, etc. There are companies that have this information, such as, the NADA guides used by lenders to determine value.

3. Look around at your local mobile home parks and talk to managers and residents about the quality of their homes and what to look for. They can also tell you about their experience in puchasing and setting up of their homes and the cost to do so.

Check with your local lenders and find out who will do the financing of your new home. Some lenders specialize in financing and insuring manufactured housing. You can check online also for lenders, just do a search in one of the many search engines and you will find a variety of lenders. Look for the lender that has been in business for awhile and offers the lowest rates. The rates will vary widely sometimes between lenders and the type of institution, whether bank, credit union, or other finance company.

Whenever you have found the home you want to purchase be sure that everything on the contract is the way that you want it, then before signing it have an attorney look it over. A few dollars spent with an attorney can sometimes save you a bundle in money, time and frustration, trying to get warranty or setup work done.

There are various government publications dealing with the purchase of manufactured housing that are very informative. Do a search of government printing online. One such government organization is http://www.pueblo.gsa.gov/, they have a wide variety of consumer publications.

These suggestions are meant to be a staring point for you to make an informed purchase and not meant to be all inclusive. However, if these suggestions are acted upon they will be very helpful for your search.
