As a blogger you may have success but i think it comes for hard work only.

A majority of bloggers make some common mistakes and those who learns from these mistakes can have success knocking at their doorstep.

These common mistakes are:
1) Concentrating on blog design only: Some bloggers forget the thing that blog content and marketting your blog is the main thing to promote the blog! Again Marketting is the most important thing for a good content!

2) Meaningless post titles: In order to get the most targeted keywords in post title most of the bloggers forget the meaning of the post. So keep the title as simple and informative as it is.

3) To many posts: As I am the reader of many blogs out there, but its annoys me if I get too many posts from a single blog. So keep the number of posts limited per day say 2 to 4 is sufficient.

4) To many adds: Yes you want money from your blog but you should keep in mind that too many adds on the blog makes the reader confusing in between your content. And most of them will never come back loosing your blog readership! So keep the adds limited, doing this you can even make more money.

5) Changing blog URl domain frequently : One sure way to loose your readers is changing the blog domain or url. Do not change the blog title or Domain for a established blog. Decide ten times before choosing the right domain name for your blog!

Microsoft: Use our search and we'll pay you

Microsoft is offering to pay corporations if they get their employees to use Live Search at work, the company confirmed on Friday.

"Currently, we are conducting a trial program through which Microsoft is providing service or training credits to a select number of enterprise customers based on the number of Web search queries conducted by their employees via Live Search," Windows Live spokeswoman Whitney Burk said in a statement. "These customers, in turn, are providing valuable feedback to Microsoft on the use of Web search in an enterprise environment. As search evolves into more of a productivity tool, and revenue sharing becomes more commonplace across the industry, we are engaging in mutually beneficial partnerships such as this and our recently announced deal with Lenovo to more easily enable customers to choose Live Search."

Microsoft is offering large enterprise customers free service and credits that can be redeemed for products and training if they push Live search inside their companies. Companies can get a $25,000 enrollment credit plus anywhere from $2 to $10 per computer annually, which can add up to a lot for companies with thousands of computers. In an example given on a Powerpoint presentation that Battelle partially republished, a company with 10,000 PCs and high Web searching could earn $120,000 and one with 50,000 PCs and medium Web searching could earn $200,000.

Both Microsoft and Yahoo are struggling to gain ground in the market against juggernaut Google. Google has more than 60 percent search market share, compared with Yahoo's nearly 24 percent and Microsoft's more than 8 percent share.

Let's see when and how they implement it!
