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.

Schengen Area Countries Pros and Cons - Then Schengen Agreement needs to be updated and changed

Schengen Area Countries Pros and Cons for visitors / travelers
By Bill Kirk

What is the Schengen Agreement?

There are only pros for the EU member states as a tourist, however there are many cons for tourists from all other countries, e.g. Canada, USA, Mexico, Russia, China, Japan, etc.

The Schengen Agreement needs to be updated and changed. Croatia would be making a big mistake if they join Schengen, if they do join it would dramatically harm tourism to Croatia. Many USA citizens and people from other non-Schengen countries that are tourists spending a lot of money in Europe, and are tourists on longer trips to Europe need to go to non-Schengen countries because of the stupid 90 day limit imposed by the outdated, vague and silly Schengen rules. So these USA tourists go to Croatia for 90 days after spending 90 days in the Schengen countries. If Croatia joins Schengen it will harm tourism to Croatia, as Americans and tourists from other countries would not be allowed to visit Croatia if their 90 days in Schengen countries has expired.

Originally, the Schengen treaties and the rules adopted under them operated independently from the European Union.
Schengen is now a core part of EU law, and all EU member states without an opt-out which have not already joined the Schengen Area are legally obliged to do so when technical requirements have been met.
The Schengen Agreement needs to increase the 90 day limit to 180 or 360 days. This 90 limit is harming tourism in all the Schengen countries. Some tourists would like to stay 90 days in each Schengen country. So if I wanted to take a huge amount of money and stay at fancy 5 star hotels in 20 different Schengen countries for 60-90 days in each country, think about how such tourism money is lost for Europe.

The European Union (EU) should update and change the current Schengen Agreement as these terrible rules have already lost billions of tourism Euros ($$$) for all EU member countries. 

There are other problems with the Schengen Agreement and it is not working as designed. Please watch the video below to see what I mean.

How Safe Are Password Managers?

This video is very funny and makes an important point.


Based on all the past problems Sony has faced with hackers and the fact that Sony, USA government offices, etc. did not do a good job of protecting passwords.  Furthermore with the general public concerned about the US government spying on citizens I thought it would be important to explain why everyone should be using an Online Password Manager for business, personal, SEO and marketing. 
No one has your passwords except you. We can not see or retrieve them because they are stored in a secure military 256k encrypted vault in the cloud.

Why the FTC needs to investigate Google, and put new stricter regulations upon Google

Update: Google is now indexing this Blog again, however the unfair censorship issues still remain for many other people.

I have written several articles about why the Federal Trade Commission should investigate Google.

Please click on the following link to see some of my articles on this topic.



This has been an ongoing problem with Google unfairly censoring people for several years now. I have complained to Google and to be fair after several of my complaints Google has taken the unfair censorship off of me. So some Googlers are being fair and fixing these Google censorship problems.
However the Google unfair censorship problems continue and keep coming back. So I have decided to give up on Google and use multiple different pseudonyms on different websites not owned by Google. I recommend everyone that uses Blogger to switch to their competitors because you can not trust Google to treat you fairly.

I am also going to support and write to USA Senator Orrin Hatch asking for his help to force the FTC to investigate Google and to impose new strict regulations upon Google so Google is forced to treat all people fairly and to stop Google from unfairly censoring people like me.
It is very sad to me that in America we allow "Big Brother Google" to censor many more people than communist China censors. It is strange that Google does not want communist China to censor Google, yet somehow Google thinks it is okay to unfairly censor many citizens of the USA. Google has again stopped indexing my new articles on this blog and so I will stop using Blogger and switch to their competitors and use fake names (pseudonyms).
This is what it must be like to live in communist China, and I sincerely hope the USA government will investigate Google and stop all the antitrust and unfair censorship problems that Google is causing.   

The European Union is doing a much better job of trying to regulate Google and has imposed many billions of dollars of fines against Google.

I have always believed that Larry Page, one of the founders of Google is a good and fair person and is against unfair Google censorship. Frankly Larry Page has helped me in the past and I sincerely appreciate what he did for me.

However it now appears that even Larry Page cannot stop the ongoing terrible unfair censorship of people by Google.

Big Brother China is watching everyone - Exposing China's Digital Dystopian Dictatorship

"Utopian" describes a society that's conceived to be perfect. 
"Dystopian" is the exact opposite — it describes an imaginary society that is as dehumanizing and as unpleasant as possible. George Orwell's "Animal Farm," for example, describes a dystopian society in which Napoleon, a pig, represents Joseph Stalin in a farmyard satire on Stalinist Russia and how power corrupts.

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.

How to create a great brand name

For new and existing businesses it is important to think 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.  

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.




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.

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.
