1. Jonathan :

Hello.

And to all the new subscribers, welcome!

I usually try to get this newsletter out every two weeks, but I miscalculated on a calendar. So this issue is reaching you one week later than it was intended.

I've decided to keep this issue short, because I'm planning on sending out Issue 8 next week, so as to keep on schedule.

Website Traffic Demolition is done!
Read about it in the next section.

I've decided to close The Solutions Forum. The bulletin board system hogs system resources, and I wouldn't want to have problems with my webhost.

Special thanks to Josh Cobin for the Final Quote.

This issue's Cool Tool is Wordnet University.
If you haven't checked it out, now is a good time.
If you have checked it out, well check it out again!

Wordnet University has been updated and looks great IMHO.

Ralph Hilliard has also lowered the price of Wordnet. And instead of offering a free sample video download, he offers a free 30 day trial!

Enjoy,

Jonathan

P.S.

Free Advertising has changed. Be sure to read about it.

2. Website Traffic Demolition

A well designed website is one of the most important keys in having a website at all. Yet I'm amazed at the amount of websites which seem to completely forget this!

I recently wrote about some of the things which can keep people away from your website. I published these articles in my newsletter, Awesome Solutions For Webmasters.

Even after writing the articles and publishing them in my newsletter, I knew that I could provide more information. That's why I decided to put it and more into this ebook.

I suggest that you use this ebook as a checklist for your website. Are you doing something you shouldn't be doing?

The different things mentioned in here are not small matters. You may be scaring away traffic, and the odds are, they will never return.

You can download Website Traffic Demolition -FREE- at :

I'd appreciate all comments/suggestions/criticisms that you have regarding about the ebook. Send 'em to me at trafficdemolition[at]prowebsitemanagement[dot]com

3. Cool Tool : Wordnet University

I joined Wordnet University on the 25th of April. On May 1st, Ralph updated the website with a new design, giving it a much more professional look.

Another change is that instead of reading the testimonials, you LISTEN to them. I thought this was a really interesting idea.

I immediately started downloading the videos after joining Wordnet. And I was amazed! I've owned Dreamweaver and Fireworks for about two years, and after watching the first Fireworks video, I learned some commands that I didn't know.

I've finished downloading the Dreamweaver and Fireworks videos. Now I'm downloading the Flash videos, Flash being something that I've always wanted to learn.

Wordnet University also has a private help forum for 'students'. I haven't posted in there yet, but I've seen that other people have and they all seem to get a quick answer from one of the moderators.

Perhaps the only thing that I didn't like about the videos is that I have to download them on my dialup modem. So it's a bit slow, as compared to if I were on cable.

But it was really worth the money that I paid to sign up. I've been learning new things since the first video. Thanks to Wordnet University.

5. Final Quote :

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." - Thomas Alva Edison

Edison sounds like he was a webmaster. ;-)
