4 Steps to increase your links

How To Increase Your Blogger Traffic.

One of the most common complaints that I hear from bloggers is the fact that no matter how hard they try, they can’t grow their blogs past 100 or so daily page views. Those early days are indeed the hardest, because you need to put hard work in without the certainty of achieving results.

If you are in that same situation, here is a simple strategy that will certainly increase your blog traffic and make you break the 1,000 daily page views mark. In fact, the strategy could be used even if your are already over that number but have reached a traffic plateau lately.

Just make sure to execute the 4 steps as planned and to spend the two hours and a half every day (obviously if you have more time available you can expand the time spent on each of the four steps proportionally).

First Step: Killer Articles (1 hour per day)

Spend one hour brainstorming, researching and writing killer articles (also called linkbaits, pillar articles and so on).
Notice that your goal is to release one killer article every week. If that is not possible aim for one every 15 days. So the one hour that you will spend every day will be dedicated to the same piece. In other words, expect killers articles to take from 5 up to 10 hours of work.

If you are not familiar with the term, a killer article is nothing more than a long and structured article that has the goal of delivering a huge amount of value to potential visitors. If you have a web design blog, for example, you could write an article with “100 Free Resources for Designers”. Here are some ideas for killer articles:
create a giant list of resources,write a detailed tutorial teaching people how to do something, find a solution for a common problem in your niche and write about it, or write a deep analysis on a topic where people have only talked superficially.

When visitors come across your killer article, you want them to have the following reaction: “Holy crap! This is awesome. I better bookmark it. Heck, I better even mention this on my site and on my Twitter account, to let my readers and friends know about it.”

Second Step: Networking (30 minutes per day)

Networking is essential, especially when you are just getting started. The 30 minutes that you will dedicate to
it every day could be split among:

1. Commenting on other blogs in your niche,
2. Linking to the posts of bloggers in your niche, and
3. Interacting with the bloggers in your niche via email, IM or Twitter.

Remember that your goal is to build genuine relationships, so don’t approach people just because you think they can help to promote your blog. Approach them because you respect their work and because you think the two of you could grow together.

Third Step: Promotion (30 minutes per day)

The first activity here is the promotion of your killer articles. Whenever you publish one of them, you should push it in any way you can. Examples include:

1. letting the people in your network know about it (don’t beg for a link though),
2. letting bloggers and webmasters in relevant niches know about it,
3. getting some friends to submit the article to social bookmarking sites,
4. getting some friends to Twitter the article, and posting about the article in online forums and/or newsgroups.

If there is time left, spend it with search engine optimization, social media marketing and activities to promote your blog as whole. Those can range from keyword research to promoting your blog on Facebook and guest blogging.

Fourth Step: Normal Posts (30 minutes per day)

Just like a man does not live by bread alone, a blog does not live by killer articles alone. Normal posts are the ones that you will publish routinely in your blog, between the killer articles. For example, you could publish a killer article every Monday and normal posts from Tuesday through Friday. Here are some ideas for normal posts:

1. a post linking to an article on another blog and containing your opinion about it
2. a post informing your readers about a news in your niche
3. a post asking a question to your readers and aiming to initiate a discussion
4. a post highlighting a new resource or trick that you discovered and that would be useful to your readers

While killers articles are essential to promote your blog and bring new readers aboard, normal posts are the ones that will create diversity in your content and keep your readers engaged.

This is one of the way to increase your blog traffic. You must try it and surely the result will be unimaginable. I have been doing this blogging hobby since two years ago and I have learnt and observe from other people blogs and with the close up rapport with a friends of mine that is really serious in blog making make me so obsess with this blogging activity. Today I achieve remarkable visitor, visiting my site... I manage to get 40,000 visitor for the past 3 month and I'm really happy for that. So I reveal and share this idea for blog beginner and hopefully this article can help you guys out there to boost up your blog traffic. Thanks From Harry George.

Actually my  background education is Marketing Research and I know what the marketer think.. In mind, but at least do it in a clean way. Enough for to today.. Continue reading below.  

Firm ordered to pay RM2,130 over 'gift sale'

Electrical appliances distributor, Home E-tech Electronic Sdn Bhd, was ordered to pay a total of RM2,130 to one Maruf Jeman by the Consumer Claims Tribunal.

Maruf said he was approached by salespersons from the outlet near Servay Hypermarket in Penampang recently who offered him a free bag without him having to purchase anything.

Feeling lucky, he followed the man and woman into their shop where they asked him to fill in some forms stating who he was as he had received their free gift as well as for reference purposes.

"They said 'this bag is your free gift and you can just bring it home now if you want to', but asked me to just fill in some forms for reference so I just went along," he said.

It was when he was inside that they opened the bag and showed him two coupons stating he had won two things from the shop, he said.

When Maruf took out his credit card, they requested to see it and also requested that he show them his identification card.

"Before I knew it, they already swiped my credit card and got all my details from my identification card. When I asked them about it, they gave me silly excuses, forcing me to leave the shop in disbelief," he said, adding that he left without even taking the two so-called free items.

He said he had wanted to return to the shop as soon as he got into his car but could only do so the next day as the road was too congested at that time.

"Even though they said they would refund my money, and that a cheque has been prepared, I still want to take this matter to the tribunal because I do not trust them," he stated.

Tribunal president Datuk Dr. Lawrence SH Thien made the award against Home E-tech, as none of its representatives was present for the hearing.

In another case, logistics and moving services company, Cahayapack (M) Sdn Bhd was ordered to pay RM4,300 to an army personnel, Roslan Abdul Haru for losing his properties while having his car transported from Melaka to Semporna recently.

However, his extra claims for RM1,500 in transportation fees to and from Semporna was rejected by Thien as he had no valid bills relating to the fees mentioned.

Sabahan For Sabahan

Website to connect Sabahans
By FIONA HO, 16 Sept 2011

Bringing people of the state together via
VERA Mopilin was getting terribly homesick when she decided to start a website to connect with her fellow Sabahans.

It all began during her stay in Bangkok.

“My husband and I had moved there in 2006, and we stayed on for three years. I got homesick after a while and being homesick makes you want to be among your own people,” the 37-year-old Kadazandusun explained.

“I missed the food, the people and even the sounds from home,” said Mopilin in an interview in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Linking up: Vera Mopilin came up with the idea of to connect Sabahans everywhere.
Mopilin, who grew up in Kota Kinabalu, added that she even tried looking for Sabahans in Bangkok but did not manage to find anyone. “I did find some Malaysians, though, which helped a little.”

Homesickness led to the idea of creating a portal that would allow Sabahans to meet other Sabahans who are living outside the state.

“My husband and I had been talking about the idea for ages but it wasn’t until we moved to Semenanjung (Peninsula) that we started getting serious.”

Mopilin, who moved to Selangor in Februa­ry last year, said she started bumping into Sabahans in the city wherever she went.

But it wasn’t until last May that she uploaded her first entry on her blog, WhoAmISabah, as a way to record all the Sabahans she had met.

“It started out as a personal blog, but thanks to a friend’s advice, I managed to get a proper website domain for it. It became an official website,, last July.”

The website introduces Sabahans to the world, hence the name WhoAmISabah, she elaborated. It is also Mopilin’s way of keeping in touch with the people she has met.

But how exactly does she find her subjects?

“That’s the interesting part,” she said. “I actually bump into them in grocery stores, retail stores, at the bakery and markets.”

The mother of one, who lives with her journalist husband in Subang Jaya, said she had even met electricians who are from Sabah. “It’s as if they are everywhere in KL and in every position imaginable.”

Sabahans are easy to spot, she added. “You can tell if someone is from Sabah immediately, from the way he talks.”

Mopilin has spent about 15 years away from Sabah. She left her hometown of Kota Kinabalu when she was in Form 1 for a boarding school in Labuan and then on to Sydney, Australia, to complete high school. She stayed on to study tourism at the University of Canberra and returned home in 1996, five years after she had left. She worked in a luxury hotel in Sabah.

“My husband got a posting in Bangkok so I went there with him shortly after we got married the same year. There, I worked as a freelance tour guide.”

Despite her years abroad, Mopilin said she still practises her native values and way of life.

“It’s the same for most Sabahans I’ve met outside Sabah. Our culture lives on through little things such as our food and the way we raise our children.”

Being a mother herself, Mopilin said she has a tendency to speak to her three-year-old daughter, Apsara, in Sabah slang. “It’s not really a conscious decision,” she admitted. “But because my husband is also a Sabahan, it is only natural for us to converse that way at home.”

“However, we do try to speak like everyone else when we interact with people outside our home here because we need to be understood. Most Malaysians in the peninsula say that Sabahans talk too fast.”

Mopilin misses the familial support in Sabah.

“We have a strong support system back home. For example, when you have kids, your mother will take care of them for you while you’re at work.”

Mopilin, now a stay-at-home mum, looks after her daughter herself. “I don’t have a maid but I wish I had one,” she said with a laugh.

She said Sabahans rarely marry outside their own community. “There is no pressure for us to marry only Sabahans (her sister is married to a Singaporean), but somehow it just happens. I think it has more to do with our circle of friends and the people we hang out with.”

What she finds most inspiring about the Sabahans she’s come into contact with is their willingness to watch out for each other, she said. “They have set up clubs or persatuan (societies) to help raise funds for other Sabahans who are in need.”

However, Mopilin stressed that not all Sabahans are aware of the amenities and facilities that are available to them. “Some of the young Sabahans who come to KL end up being terbiar (neglected) just like that. They have to fend for themselves.”

She aims to forge a better connection among Sabahans with and through Facebook and Twitter. “I’m trying to connect the dots to (hopefully) bring everyone together.”

Mopilin also discovered that some Sabahans who have settled in the peninsula have no plans to return home.

“I think it’s a pity and it’s not just Sabahans in the Klang Valley but also those living in Johor Baru and Singapore as well. Most will choose not to go home solely because of financial reasons. Also, many of them have brought the rest of their families to live with them.”

Mopilin noted that Sabahans who grew up in rural areas are less inclined to return. “There are better education facilities as well as job opportunities here,” she reasoned. “But I would like to go home when the time is right.”

She also pointed out that Sabahans starting life anew in the peninsula inevitably conform to the local culture over time. “Most Sabahans actually end up losing their accent.”

The assimilation also means that the children of these people will no longer identify with their origins. “They live here and go to school here, so they’ll grow up thinking their home is here. Sabah will become a place to visit.”

However, Mopilin and many other Sabahans feel an intrinsic pride in their homeland. “We’re very proud Malaysians but for me, I see myself as Sabahan first and proud Malaysian second.”

The Malaysia Day celebration, the country’s second since it was officially declared a public holiday last year, is a great opportunity for Sabahans everywhere to get together. And also for aramaiiti (let’s be merry). “Sabahans are good drinkers,” Mopilin said with a laugh.

“Back in Sabah, we go to each other’s houses for barbecue on Sept 16. I’m hoping that Sabahans here will also meet each other and practise that tradition for Malaysia Day. It’ll be good to have a mini-gathering. But minus the drinking.”

Political Changes Outside Tamparuli

Revive the Langkon seat: PBS

Political Secretary to the Chief Minister, Sarapin Magana, urged the State Government to revive the Langkon state constituency.

He said doing so would relieve the burden of the Matunggong constituency of which he is also the Assemblyman.

Matunggong he said, is only a sub-district and thus reviving the Langkon state constituency would absorb some of the burden of the Matunggong state constituency.

He said Matunggong has 176 villages but of that, 12 do not have village chiefs and JKKK chairmen.

"In this respect, it is necessary that the State Government review and re-create again the Langkon state constituency," he said, when hosting the Matunggong Hari Raya Open House, recently.

On the other hand, he said Parti Bersatu Sabah has always been supporting the State and Federal governments to improve the lives of the people in the State.

"It is therefore important that the Kota Marudu parliamentary constituency is on par with other districts or parliamentary constituencies in terms of development," he said More than 2,000 people attended the event.

Speaking at the open house, he said in order to achieve the 1Malaysia concept, it is important that people of different racial, ethnic and religious background are included in it.

In this respect, he said it is equally important for the people to inculcate the spirit of friendship and to forge lasting ties among them irrespective of race and religion.

Sarapin ticked off some quarters who only highlighted shortages in the district and blamed the Government for it.

Instead of grumbling, they should strive to cooperate and develop Matunggong as well as to unite the people.

Without unity among the people, he said it is difficult to generate development in the locality.

"The government transformation programme mooted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is what we all should be practising because it aims to improve the government's performance," he said.

During the event, Sarapin and Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili also distributed rice and Raya cash to selected recipients from the 176 villages that include the disabled (OKUs), orphans, single mothers and senior citizens.

Also present were Tandek Assemblywoman, Anita Baranting and Kota Marudu Umno chief, Wetrom Bahanda @ Mohd Fikri.

Meanwhile, Sarapin urged the public to fly the Jalur Gemilang to show their patriotism to the country. They should not wait before Malaysia Day to purchase the flag.

Flying the Jalur Gemilang he said should remind them of how the independence was achieved as well as the sacrifices of the freedom fighters to attain it.

Without these freedom fighters, the nation would still be under the British rule, he said when launching the Matunggong Merdeka Kembara Convoy.

The convoy started from the Matunggong sub-district office and passed by many villages before stopping at Sikuati township where Sarapin handed the Jalur Gemilang to Sikuati Kapitan.

From Sikuati, the convoy made up of 27 vehicles went to Tindakon Dazang Beach before heading back to Matunggong sub-district office where the Jalur Gemilang was hoisted up the pole.

Puntius Binatatus

Have you ever heard about the local fish call Turongou? Normally this fish can be found at a small river around Sabah and other places in Borneo. The scientific name for this fish is Puntius Binatatus. If you did not have time to catch it by yourself you can bought it at the Tamus, Tamparuli, Tuaran, Ranau, Tambunan, Penampang, Kota Belud and other places around Sabah. The price is really reasonable and cheap. Turongou can be fried with "Adabi Chicken Flour" and really taste good. My grandfather used to cook it with Bambangan (Local Fruit in Tamparuli) which I call it " Soup Turongou Bambangan ". It really taste good. Some of you might try it before and some might not... If you want to buy this so call Turongou, you can visit Tamu Tamparuli early in the morning to buy this local fish. Nowdays this fish has been commercialize by the government. Please continue reading below article.

Adapted from.

A pioneer study on the breeding of local fish, ‘Turongou’, is in the pipeline to produce the Tongkat Ali and Kacip Fatimah Turongou on a commercial basis here.

Commonly known as spotted barb, its scientific name is Puntius Binatatus.

Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili said the ministry was currently funding a project for the establishment of a ‘Turongou’ hatchery and production facilities in Penampang.

The project, implemented by Innovasi Sedia Sdn Bhd, is currently in its first phase. Its objectives include preserving the ‘Turongou’ species from extinction through a controlled natural breeding system. Known among the Kadazandusun as ‘Turongou’, the fish is traditionally found in clean streams and paddy fields but is close to extinction because of the use of pesticides and pollution.

It is a highly-priced delicacy, and is high in nutritional value such as calcium and protein contents.

“Turongou is a good protein source, and in my view, is a superior fish both in taste and nutritional content. The research project will require advanced technical trials to produce large quantities of Turongou with eggs,” said Ongkili, during a visit to the project site yesterday.

He said there were three stages which would see the production of the Tongkat Ali and Kacip Fatimah ‘Turongou’.

The first stage involves mapping the species from various districts and testing their breeding capability, among others.

The second stage would test the feed formulation for the Turongou growth rate while the third involves producing herb-filled Turongou by feeding them medicinal plants such as tongkat ali, kacip fatimah, ginger and cinnamon, to produce organic nutritional ‘Turongou’.

Ongkili said the current project, which was given a RM300,000 funding, was progressing well.

“If successful, the technology will be licensed to small farmers,” he added.

The Kinoingan Question 
By: Tan Sri Herman Luping 

THERE is a difference between the Nunuk Ragang legendary first person, Kinoingan and Kinoingan the accepted name in Kadazandusun for God in the Bible.

According to the Tangaah of Penampang Nunuk Ragang story or legend, two children, male and female, came out from a rock which had split open at the banks of the Tampias river. The rock was underneath a big nunuk tree (banyan or fig tree) and the two children lived under the canopies of the tree whose foliage when seen from afar was red - hence Nunuk Ragang. The two children's name, according to the Penampang legend were Kinoingan and Suminundu. They were human beings with supernatural powers, therefore considered semi divine, but not God.

(God in Kadazandusun is Minamangun or Creator.)

They begot children who later spread out to populate the whole of Sabah. They had 8 children, six males and two females. The eldest was a girl and she was named Huminodun. It was Huminodun who was sacrificed by Suminundu so that her flesh became the staple diet of the Kadazan - padi - and other parts of her body were turned into fruit trees, vegetables etc.

Huminodun today is remembered during the Harvest festival celebration.

Her spirit is called "Bambaazon", the spirit who guards the padi.

Today, once a year a beauty contest is held amongst the young Kadazan girls to commemorate Huminodun. Incidentally a Japanese social scientist had written an article about the origin of the Harvest festival and said that Huminodun could have been a male. The name Huminodun does not necessarily mean female, he wrote. But in our Tangaah opinion and belief, Huminodun was female, the first daughter of Kinoingan and Suminundu.

The Tangaah argue that the food for the people from Huminodun's flesh and bone are females.

The padi in the fields are all females; the fruit trees like bananas are females; so are the langsat, the bununu, the tarap etc.

If there are bambangan trees or mango trees not fruiting, this is not because the trees are males but because they are "barren" incapable of pollination. So, goes the argument to show that Huminodun was female.

The name for God in Kadazan is Minamangun - meaning the Creator.

And indeed, in the rinait or incantations by the Kadazan type of Bobohizan in Penampang, the term Minamangun is mentioned as the Creator of the world. (The other type of Bobohizan's inait is Tangaah).

Indeed, the creation of the world is not far from the Bible's story in Genesis.

In the Kadazan version, the Creator created the world, the land and the sky from the dirt of his body (ngingi) as he washed himself in a cascading waterfall.

Meanwhile, The term Kinoingan for God was believed to have been introduced by the White foreign missionaries, particularly the main stream Christian denomination, the Roman Catholic Church.

From the moment they set foot in North Borneo (Sabah) beginning in the late 1700s, they decided to learn the Kadazan language - especially the Tangaah of Penampang dialect. They started to collect words and learn to speak them. They also started to translate the English version of the Catechism, the prayer book and even portion of the Bible into the Tangaah dialect. And I believe the word "Kinoingan" was introduced to them by the first catechists they employed to help them to reach to the people.

These catechists were also employed as school teachers. Amongst the early catechists and teachers before the second world war were such persons as Louis Majapul, John Goyopong and Bernard Mojikon.

Datuk Anthony Gibun of Tambunan was also amongst the first school teachers employed.

These early educated Kadazans helped the foreign missionaries to learn and speak the language.

The term "Kinoingan" for God the almighty, the Creator, was preferred to be used for the prayer books instead of Minamangun.

Thus, when I first went to school after the war, and St Michael Primary was reopened in 1946, (I was nine years old) we were taught the catechism.

The very first sentence is "Who made you? Ans: God made me".

And the translations was "Isai minonoodo diau? Kinoingan minonoodo dogo". I believe these translation into Kadazan were done with the help of the Kadazan teachers such as Peter Lansing, Samuel Majalang, Stanishlaus Tindahal and Bernard Mojikon. They were the teachers after the Second World War - replacing Louis Majapul etc. The first Kadazan dictionary compiled and edited by Rev Fr Antonissen was made possible, I understand because of the help of these teachers.

God the Creator, the Almighty, or Yaweh in Hebrew or Allah, was and is Kinoingan in Kadazan today.

And the use of this name for God in the Bible has nothing to do with the name of the first Kadazan person, named Kinoingan in the Nunuk Ragang legend.

I suppose there are similarities today in regard to the name of God.

To the Roman Catholics, there is but one God also but there is also the "three persons" ( persona in Latin) in one God - - God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. All are equal and indeed God.

This believe of the three persons in one is contained in the Church's Apostle Creed and also the Nicene Creed. The latter was introduced by all the churches leaders in Nicene, Turkey, in the year 300 or so.

Both contain the pillars of the belief of Christians, particularly the main stream denomination.

Jesus is the Son of God - the Second Personae. We believe He is God, but He is also known as Joshua in Hebrew and Isa in Arabic. And both these names are used liberally by many as a name.

And so is the name "Jesus".

I suppose there is nothing wrong with that. And the use of the name Kinoingan as God the Almighty is also acceptable if the early missionaries also decided to use the name of the Nunuk Ragang legend to call God for the Kadazan instead of Minamangun. The position of Kinoingan and Suminundu in Nunuk Ragang was that they were equal in rank and status.

No one was above or ahead of the other. Both had supernatural power.

They sat together as equal, I am told.

When the Huguan Siou Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan was or is performing his duty as representative of Kinoingan and Suminundu at Nunuk Ragang, I believe his position or status is the same as his wife who is seen as representing Suminundu. Remember, there is no suggestion that these two first beings are the Creator, the Almighty. They were humans with supernatural powers. Both Huguan Siou and his wife should therefore be seated together, next to one another for no one is "higher" than the other.

I would repeat that in the Tangaah Penampang and Papar Nunuk Ragang legend, the term Kadazan was first used at Nunuk Ragang.

It means the people. The term Kadazan in fact is also mentioned in the Inait or Rinait of the Bobohizan of Penampang - to refer to the people living in the Tampias area. The term Dusun was never mentioned.

This is not surprising. Dusun is not a race or people. It was a term used by the Brunei overlords who owned and controlled the Putatan river and Papar river as slur words, derogatory words to call the Kadazans under their control. The people living along the river valleys were their "properties" and they were made to pay "buis" (taxes) annually to the Pengirans who owned the rivers. Besides, the Kadazans were practically all pagans or have no religion. Islam has become the religion of the royals in Brunei by 1400, according to the history book. The non-Muslim Kadazan did not convert or took to the new religion.

To the Brunei overlords who were Muslims, the Kadazans were kafirs - dirty infidels, village yokels - dusun! No wonder the Kadazans fought a lot in school when they were called 'dusun"! Indeed, there was a case about a Kadazan young man working in Brunei who felt insulted when a group of people called him "dusun", meaning a village yokel. He punched the offender but the offender's friends came to his aid and in the ensuing fracas the Kadazan got killed. Another Kadazan who had a gun became so angry to see his fellow Kadazan killed that he shot to death the assailants and then turned the gun on himself.

He died too. This is a story told many times but considered based on hearsay!

Money lost to scams


People have been alarmingly gullible this year, losing about RM78 million up to August to a myriad of scams which they have been time and again warned about by police.

State Commercial Crime Investigation Department Chief, Supt Jauteh Dikun, said though there were not as many cases the amount of money lost to such scams had nearly doubled from RM44 million two years ago.

"There are people who are still so gullible despite numerous reports and advice from the police. If we look at the statistics for the past eight months, we see that a total of 868 cases had been reported whereas it was 896 during the same period last year.

"But the total losses have increased so much even though the reports have reduced, involving Internet scams, short messaging services, the Macau scam, 4-digit scams and land scams among others," he said.

"A total of 16 people including five women involved in the 'Internet Casanova/parcel scam' have been arrested, thus far, compared to the arrest of two men and a woman last year, whereas 24 others were arrested for different offences compared to 20 in 2010," Jauteh stated.

In this resepct, he revealed that the latest case involved a 24-year-old man in Sandakan, who received a text message stating that he could claim a prize from the nearest Milimewa Superstore if he topped up RM500 on a handphone number.

"The victim realised that he was cheated when he went to a Milimewa Superstore nearby after following the instructions and found that there was no such contest," he stated.

This was the most recent contest scam used known as Peraduan Milimewa where the topped up credits are believed to be shared among other syndicate members to send false messages to its victims.

Suspects in previous cases have already been hauled in to facilitate investigations, Jauteh said, adding that most of the SMS scams involved foreigners from neighbouring countries.

"There were seven of them including a local man arrested last month but we think there is a possibility that the original syndicate has split up because there is a new group operating now," he said.

He added that there had been four reports involving about RM2,000 losses so far in the Milimewa contest scam.

Meanwhile, he also warned the public against trusting people on the Internet especially when they have money-related transactions.

"For example, when you buy something through the Internet or online, do not bank in any money unless you have seen the property or met the salesperson," Jauteh suggested.
