How Netflix changed entertainment -- and where it's headed | Reed Hastings

I have a special interest in Reed Hasting because I worked as a consultant for his first company Pure Software. I was fortunate to be in several meetings, dinners and lunches with Reed. This was many years ago, however I still remember how impressed I was after I got to know him. I spent several hours talking with Reed Hastings and at first I thought he must just be a software programming nerd. 
I was wrong with my first thoughts, and I learned how super intelligent, talented in multiple business methods, and nice of a person he is. It just proves you can be a nice person and still become a billionaire. The other thing I remember and still think about is how strong, and tenacious of an entrepreneur Reed Hastings is. I remember him talking about how he was "home alone" developing his first software product Purify for two years. Reed faced years of rude rejection from venture capitalists telling him he should give up. I think with that much rejection 98% of people would give up. Then Pure Software became very successful, went public and Reed made a "big old bag of money" which he later used to help start NETFLIX. Towards the end of this video you hear Reed talk about how he loves to compete against Disney, HBO, etc. I still see his passion for business and his desire to compete and win, just like I remember from the old days when I used to have dinner with him.
The video below is very interesting and Reed Hastings receives a standing ovation at the end of the interview.

Russian President Putin is a very good liar, and continues to deny any Russian involvement in any USA Election interference

I see why Russian President Putin was such an outstanding KGB agent. He is very clever and one of the best liars I have ever seen.
I wonder if he would pass a lie detector test? There is just too much evidence against Russia and no matter how much and strong the evidence is against Russia, Mr. Putin keeps denying any wrong doing and he just smiles and laughs about these questions.
Most Americans know we cannot trust Russian President Putin, so he is not as smart and clever as he thinks he is.
The USA knows the truth and that is why we continue to keep economic sanctions against Russia. 

So the big question is will Russia continue the interference in the 2018 USA elections?
I feel sorry for the Russian people if Mr. Putin does not stop playing his spy games. The USA congress will pass new and tougher laws against Russia and it will harm the innocent Russian people economically. 
I hope the Russian people will learn and understand that the American citizens like them and want to help the people of Russia, it is just the Russian leader Mr. Putin that we cannot trust and we must stop him from trying to interfere with our democracy.

USA President Trump remarks on Putin summit during Congressional meeting

President Trump try's to clarify his comments in Helsinki Finland. In many peoples opinion it is not very believable. It was more than a mistake in just one sentence. What USA President Trump now claims is an obvious bullshit spin job. Mr. Trump has a huge ego and I believe this causes him problems. Many people would have more respect for President Trump if he admitted a bigger mistake and then corrected it. The way President Trump put an untruthful spin on this topic just makes many people even more frustrated with him.

I think President Trump has other big problems that he does not seem to understand.  Mr. Trump is starting a trade war and USA farmers and people living in rural communities will be harmed and will drop support for President Trump. I bet President Trump will not be reelected in 2020, and the trade war he started will be a major reason why he is not reelected.
Some media articles claim Mr. Trump will win this trade war because China has more to lose, I think these people are incorrect and wrong. China will force President Trump to lose and then after the 2020 elections China will work with the new USA President and the trade war will stop and we will have policies similar to before Mr. Trump became the President of America.

Alma Deutscher is a musical prodigy similar to Mozart

60 minutes did a new story about Alma Deutscher today, it is not up on Youtube yet, however this young girl has had these extremely rare talents and gifts from God since she was 2 years old. Now she is 12 years old and doing what Mozart did when he was 12 years old. When you watch the videos below you will understand Alma is the one of the greatest musical prodigies of all time. Alma learned to read music (3 years old) before she learned to read text at age 4.5.
I am fascinated by her gifts and talents as science can not explain how she does this. Alma's brain is hardwired to do this, it just flows out of her like lava flowing out of a volcano, the same was true for Mozart.

Russian President Putin and the long history of activities counter to mainstream American culture and laws

Russia has a long history of activities counter to mainstream American culture and laws. For example, many USA citizens do not consider Russia to be a "true" democracy and think that Mr. Putin is a dictator. Americans also do not trust Russian President Putin and for valid reasons, e.g. the poisoning of the ex-Russian spy in London in 2006, then the more recent attacks in London using a nerve agent. Both have been proven to be related and ordered by the Russian government. Who else would have access to Polonium-210 ?
You cannot buy Polonium, it only comes from secret military laboratories in Russia. Then there is Bill Browder, Mr. Putin's #1 enemy who is in hiding so he is not killed by Russians under the direction of Mr. Putin.

Yet with all these known negative facts about Mr. Putin, Russian President Putin believes that "there would be no winner" in a nuclear war between the USA and Russia. Also Mr. Putin believes many millions of people would die, and he does not want that to happen. For limiting nuclear weapons negations, and many other reasons USA Presidents have met previously with Russian President Putin and previous Russian Presidents. This is even true for Ronald Reagan, who helped have the Berlin Wall torn down by the Soviet Union.
The citizens of the USA should also understand that most Russian people are happy with Russian President Putin as their leader.
Now all Democrats and more Republicans are very unhappy with USA President Trump for the speech he made in Helsinki Finland today.


Below is a interview of Bill Browder, Mr. Putin's #1 enemy who is hiding so he is not killed by Mr. Putin.



Please see (below) a new interview of the former President of Georgia a country Mr. Putin invaded in 2008.

SEO Link Building Service

SEO Link Building Service and Strategies
We receive thousands of phone calls, emails, link building questions and listing requests every year about SEO and link building techniques. Eighty percent or more of the people contacting us have terribly wrong ideas about what works and what is important for outstanding results in the major search engines. Below are details, samples, and history of people contacting us with their requirements. Hopefully, you will find useful SEO information that will help your company grow and increase your profits.

Many people phone our company saying, "I need low cost SEO, low quality backlinks, and tons of cheap links."

I respond, "Why?".... They say, "I want to out rank my competitors."
They think it is a pure numbers game, all links are equal and you get more and you win.  This is the wrong link building strategy, and these "cheap low quality techniques" will cause your website to be penalized by Google.

These people want fast outstanding results; they want to be #1 for competitive keyword phrases in 1-5 months.  Most people still do not understand that Google has penalized almost all of these cheap, crappy links and many people still do not even realize to vary their anchor text.  So the fastest way to be penalized by Google is to put up 1000+ low quality links on crappy websites and low quality Directories. 
Important Note: "If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site." - Matt Cutts of Google

Then use the exact same anchor text for all these poor quality backlinks. People who do this might as well just email Google and say "please penalize my site, I am a dumb-ass and I deserve to be penalized."

You need and want to be on Top Quality Sites and Directories.

There are 7000 languages around the world, How language shapes the way we think

We are losing languages around the world at the rate of one lost language a week. The lady in the video believes this is a bad thing and I do not understand why. It makes sense to me that there should be less languages needed and used over time as technology continues to make the world a smaller place.
Then I wonder if we will have less countries over time, however I think this question is very different then how many languages we need. Because people need and want to communicate, however for political and economic reasons there is less motivation to have fewer countries in the world. Also I think the Netherlands is a good example of the future, where people may speak a native more obscure language (Dutch) and also speak English as their international language of choice. I have seen people from different countries that all have different native languages e.g. Spanish, Chinese, Russian, etc. all communicate just fine using English.  
Mandarin is the most widely spoken language in the world, because China has the most people. Over a billion people speak Mandarin, yet only 1% of Chinese people speak English.
Spanish is the second most widely spoken language on earth.

Only 13% of the people in the world are fluent at 3 languages and the term for this is trilingual. However if you can speak 5 or more languages fluently you are not only most likely a genius you are known as a Polyglot. Only 1% of the world's population is fluent and can communicate in 5 languages, I have only ever met one person who could do this and he was definitely a genius. He was a medical professor that made a lot of money investing in the stock market and he lived in Monaco. He was also famous for his medical inventions.

How to create a great brand name

For new and existing businesses it is important to think about about a "brand name". This video is a concise and useful presentation to think about when considering your companies brand name. 
In rare cases like Google it may not matter that much. Many experts would claim that the brand name Google was not such a wise choice, however if your company becomes the most financially successful company in the history of business like Google is, perhaps your brand name choice is not as important.
However for 99% of businesses the creation and marketing of your brand name is extremely important for long term success.

Why has the USA image fallen so low in European Countries?

I think it is very important to study history and try to learn from the past.

Why is the image of the USA and our President so low in European Countries?


Why aren't 2 million people cheering for USA President Trump like they did for USA President Kennedy?

Please watch the video below (sound quality is not good) showing real footage of USA President Kennedy's visit to Germany in 1963. 




Please see pro Trump and anti Trump videos below. Since you can not trust big media to objectively show you both sides of the argument.

To me CNN is fake news, yet I am not a Trump supporter. The new CNN slogan should be "the most distrusted name in news..."
I laugh when CNN refers to people like Dana Bash as a Journalist. Her interviews are very biased and not like what an objective journalist should be doing, it makes me wonder if she really works for Robert Mueller. Then CNN makes it even worse criticizing news sources like Fox news. CNN and Fox are both biased just on different sides. Then the stupid CNN staff, I do not refer to them as journalist, seems to not understand why USA President Trump refuses to take questions from them. How stupid can CNN be?

Why Link Building is the Most Important SEO Ranking Factor, and Why You Still Want and Need to Perform Great On-Site Optimization

Rand Fishkin is a very smart person and one of the top SEO experts in the world.
However I want to offer some important SEO advice before you watch the video below.
Please understand that good merit based link building is by far the #1 ranking factor in SEO.

You can separate SEO into two main categories.
1. On-site SEO - e.g. what you do on your web pages. There is a finite (limited) number of ranking points that you can obtain for good on-site optimization.
2. Off-site SEO - e.g. Link Building, who links to your web pages. There is an infinite (unlimited) number of ranking points that you can obtain from great link building. So a site with superior link building can and will outrank a perfectly on-site optimized website.

This is a good thing and there is science behind this and also why Google created the term and concept of PageRank. This is why Google grew so fast and why their search results are superior to their competitors.

If you do a fantastic job of on-site optimization you will also need less high quality backlinks. It also will help you if you have wonderful SEO Tools to use for both on-site optimization and for off-site optimization.

Why Links Are So Important to the Internet

Updated: 7-14-18

I Did Not Invent the Internet, However the Man Who Did Links to My Blog

History of the Internet and Leonard Kleinrock one of the Fathers of the Internet


I will show you an example of "good merit based" link building that Google likes.
About the best backlink you could obtain in the software, Internet and SEO industry would be a link from a prestigious university, from a top expert and a famous award winning distinguished person, e.g. the father of the Internet.

Please click here, then click in the #1 video listed on the webpage and see where it links you to.


The following is an excellent article and basic overview of links and why they are so important to the web.
The importance of building high-quality links has never been higher. The need to understand and implement high-quality campaigns is essential if you're going to compete and thrive online, and that isn't going to change any time soon. This guide is designed to get you going quickly and in the right direction.

Powerful backlinks are still by far the most important factor in the Google algorithms and they will continue to be because there is science behind this.

The reason search engines will most likely never change this is that this methodology works great, and no other technique works better. Why Do you think Google named it PageRank?

 Link Building

The people that tell you links are not important any longer are complete Dumb-asses and you should never listen to them.
I am not sure how I can make this point any clearer.

The Answer to the recent Google cache problem, why is your website not showing up in the Google cache?

I first wrote this article a few weeks ago, however Google has still not fixed this problem I explain below.

Like many people I was very concerned that Google was not showing many websites in the Google cache, which is not a good thing. I wish Google would not be so secretive and would have just explained the simple answer to people and tell them not to worry.

So I had to go onto Google's Webmaster Central and deal with the incorrect and ignorant trolls on the Google Webmaster Central Forum. My strong advice is to stay away from this forum if possible, because most of the people on that forum or most forums are incorrect ignorant trolls, that need to get a live. Of course the worst trolls are in denial that they are trolls. Also the stupid trolls try to gang up against useful people like me, e.g. one troll will ask you a stupid question, then the second troll will criticize you for trying to explain the correct answer to the first trolls question.  This forum has both male and female trolls, I thought most trolls are men.

There are a few very smart people on the forum, however 80% are terrible and know nothing useful.

The non technical answer is that this is a minor Google defect and that your website is really in the Google cache, you just cannot see it. If you delete the "www." from the Google cache results then you will see your site in the Google cache.

The smartest person on the forum new the correct answer, please see the screen shot below.

Google Adwords, PPC vs SEO - 2018 Report

Every year the same question comes up, what has a better Return on Investment, PPC (Google Adwords) or SEO?

Please read the following articles:

Who are the Competitors of Upwork.com? Should you use them?

I am still using and performing ongoing tests with Upwork.com.
I must admit even though ZenDesk gives me poor responses at first, they do not give up and they keep trying. Even after I am very tough on them. I am trying to find reasons to like Upwork.com yet it is difficult as their system needs big improvements in user friendliness.
E.g. I want to send proposals to USA only jobs, so Upwork wants to verify my drivers license and my bank statement. Of course their software for this process is defective, and ZenDesk tells you to keep trying. Then after 3 tries Upwork cuts you off and will not let you try anymore. Next you have to email ZenDesk and send in a screen shot with the Upwork error message. Then ZenDesk support has to reset Upwork.com and then tells you to try again, however not 3 times, and then send them the next error message. Yes I know this entire defective process is totally ridiculous, there are 4 more steps and emails to ZenDesk and finally it works.
ZenDesk did a good job on follow up to make sure it is working properly.


Another big problem with Upwork.com is that you cannot set different prices for different project types in your profile. E.g. I would like to set a price of $120 per hour for advanced programming work and only $70 per hour for on-page search engine optimization (SEO) projects.

Upwork.com is a large service that I do not recommend. You should consider using their competitors.
Upwork.com seems like the "old dying service" and their competitors are eating their lunch. Plus they use ZenDesk which provides average support.

I found another excellent article on this topic:

SEO Process Overview

The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) process is an ongoing continuing process that we perform every day for our clients. It is possible to become very successful with top natural/organic SEO rankings, as most (68% to 90%) searchers skip the paid ads. This large range is highly keyword dependent, e.g. if someone is searching for "buy refrigerator" vs. "what is George Washington's birthday". People searching to buy a new refrigerator have a higher probability of clicking on a paid Google Ad, then someone searching for George Washington's birthday.
The other major benefit of natural or organic #1 rankings is you do not have to pay per click.  Google Adwords can run as high as $182+ per click for highly competitive keyword phrases.
We recommend for our clients to use both Google paid Adwords and natural SEO methodologies to increase web site traffic and improve the quality of traffic you receive.

It is very important to stay with SEO methodologies long term in order to achieve the desired results.  If you stop this process your web traffic and rankings will drop, and it may be difficult to recover previous top rankings.
You can not turn natural SEO on and off like you can for Google Adwords.
Also website owners that jump around from SEO Company to SEO Company are in danger of being penalized by Google.
Google is very complex and secret so no one can claim to be 100% accurate as to why Google makes the decisions it does.  However we do know that Google has many different types of penalties some of which are manual and some of which are automated via advanced software algorithms.
The quality of your backlinks and the longer your backlinks are aged, make up major factors in the Google software ranking algorithms.  Please remember if you lose important authoritative backlinks, then you must start the aging process over from the starting line.  Besides losing PageRank, this also brings suspicion from Google, and you do not want that to happen.  Google detects all these changes looking for unnatural suspicious activities.
