So I've Made My Pitch For Gold, Time Now For Gold Made Easy!

I have made my pitch for gold in my previous post as hedge against inflation. It must be part and parcel of any of today's investment mix. There are many ways to invest in gold. You can buy gold stocks or put some money on gold futures contract. Both, unfortunately are highly speculative and involves a certain amount risk which you may not have an appetite for. The safest and surest way of investing in gold is by acquiring gold coins.

However, acquiring gold coins and other precious metals is not really that simple and can in fact be a complicated process if done without the help of an Aurum (Gold) advisor. Incorporating gold into your current investment portfolios can be a ticklish process if done alone all by your lonesome self. Choosing the right selection of gold coins to include in your gold investment mix can even be tougher task too with so many schemes and gold portfolios available in the market today. But I found an Aurum Advisor's website called "Gold Made Easy which literally makes investing on gold an easy task!  (Read More)

Did you know that gold is much more of a currency than a commodity? In fact,  Gold was the main currency in most of Europe, Asia and the Americas up until 1971. As a rare and precious metal, gold has naturally evolved into a global currency of choice in the last 5,000 years...the only form of currency that was not created nor controlled by a government!

Finally! I Got My Entrecard CashOut.

After months of anxiously waiting and wondering whether I will really get to cash out my Entrecard credits, I finally received an email from Paypal informing me that the amount of $10 has been tranferred to my account from Entrecard. I've been reading posts from several entrecarders complaining about not yet receiving their cash outs but I did come across several bloggers who claimed they have received theirs. I originally cashed out 20,000 credits and after noticing that the amounts that were successfully cashed out were mostly of lower amounts, I decided to lower my cashout to 10,000 credits. True enough, I received my cash out after two weeks. My advice to Entrecarders, do not cash out more than 10,000 credits... it might take you a lifetime to see it true.

Using the internet to search for something you need before going out shopping or making a purchase saves you time and money. You will know exactly what you need and where to go even before you drive out of your garage door. Unfortunately, you can get lost surfing the net while making your searches. What one normally does is to Google his searches. But, alas, this too can also be  frustrating. When you want to buy a car for example, or simply want to be updated on the latest and forthcoming coming car models and features, and you Google your searches, you'd be swamped with a result listing millions of pages without any clue on where to go or where to start. And, with more and more online businesses hiring and paying for Search Engine Optimization services just to land on the first 10 pages of Google search results, one can not now be sure he will be able to surf the best sites under his search category and locate the information he wants before he finally gets bored and frustrated. More often than not, the best sites that offers the best information are buried deep in Google search page results.

One of my favorite car review site which I recommend to friends is The Car Connection. The site has a Page Rank of 5  and a 17,560 Alexa ranking  - yet, if you Google for 'new cars' the site is nowhere to be found. However, The Car Connection is also tagged under Car Reviews and Car Shows where it appears in the first pages of Google search results for both of these categories. (Read More)
