Copyright With-In a Copyright

Let us ask the Legal minds out there... Does this affect you?

Marketing and Advertising ethics in B2B and B2C

Copyright Law Issues

Ponder the following Internet marketing ethics issues scenarios.

You’ve written articles on e-business ¹ ethical issues of web marketing and advertising subject matters dealing with B2B and B2C. Search engines pickup the story and place it in their database. Another site copies the search results from one of the search engines and places it in their pages, even getting your name into their page (as though you are endorsing it - NOT) Click on example. (Opens in another window)

Now the results display the exact verbiage that is with-in www.pwebs.net site Internet ethics. Now if that wasn’t interesting enough for copyright issues then analyze another scenario. Another company (a very large company) saves their own search results (which are loaded with your pages) and feeds it back into the search results of another engine. Note: The examples for this come and go.

Ask the following question, "At what point do the stored results from other search engines become a legal or copyright infringement?"

Note: A while back I made the mistake of storing four pages on my server for the letter "Y" search and related cache. I was doing this in order to point something else out about company "Y". When I realized that the "Y" search engine picked up the stored results I removed them immediately from the server. While I made a mistake, it seems as though other large companies are doing it intentionally.

Take a look at the following information: copyright law, "Digital Millennium Copyright Act"

Even if you are not a lawyer or legal expert; feel free to comment or email this article.

I suspect there are additional regulatory points that I have not touched upon.

Fun Search Lesson 101

Search Lesson:

Wild wild week.

A customer and president of his company was having difficulty searching for specific information on the Internet. I then realized that the customer was not aware of how to use some of the more advanced features in search. I then took him to Google™ Advanced Search and showed him a few of the features.

Specifically, he was looking for information related to his B2B business and the connections with the military. He was trying to do some marketing research on some of the military sites but was having a difficult time wading through the general search results. I showed him how to do a specific search with site:.mil. What this does is searches on all the .mil sites for whatever keyword you place in front of site:.mil. This also works for all of the various URLs i.e. site:.org, site:.edu, site:.gov.

One of the other key points that I demonstrated to him was how he could do some sales and marketing research of his largest customers to discover some of the technical documentation from the customers site. For example: If you are looking for specific information or images at only one site you can use the same technique as above. Just include the whole site name, for example, site:.xyz.xyz. In this example with-out specifying a keyword in front you will discover approximately how many pages from the particular site are in the Google™ database. This one resulted in approximately 2,280 images.

After I had spent a couple of hours helping him on his research he asked if I would be willing to demonstrate to his upper management and sales people how to go about using the various techniques.

The next day, we set up a little training seminar right at their work site. They all had their computers online and I stepped them through the exact processes.

In summary:

It was fascinating to discover that everyone of the employees were unaware of these additional search techniques. I showed a few other items about how you could use a (-) minus sign in front of a keyword to exclude it from the results. Additional Tips: Google™ also has a list of all the universities sites as well as specific searching of US government sites, news search, the new Scholar, local, news, and others.

Note: The customer was very appreciative of the time I spent training the people. Every person was thrilled to discover all the new information at their fingertips.

Sometimes it is the small things that make a big difference.

Reaching The B2B and B2C World With Language

Other Languages Tools http://www.google.com/language_tools?
By: James Warholic

The link above maybe the most powerful link in the world!

Google™ has a great global multilingual lanjuage translation program tool on the fly, for free! This is cool, because not only is your site translated, but so are the links and the actual Web sites of the links. This is so wild...and such a great B2B and B2C language tool! To see how this functions use the following links to view a demonstration of various online marketing tips pages from our site converted to multilingual languages. English to: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. You can also go the opposite way as well, plus cross languages. Don't forget to try the links within this page as well as our other pages.

I had so much fun playing with this to see how the pages are displayed. I couldn’t stop browsing in various languages, even though I don’t know how to read the other languages. (though I took two years of Spanish in high-school, I forgot most of it.)

The wild thing about this program (and I am still discovering the various items) is not only will it display individual web pages linked in the document in the translated language, also, it can function with links to search results. For example: I have some excellent B2B vs B2C search links and a number of Internet marketing and online advertising articles located at this page: "Global Internet B2B Marketing + "B2C" Services". If you enter a page prior to translation, then go to the paragraph section about this multilingual language tool and click on the translation you are looking for. Then you can surf on our site in the language specified as well as the search links I mentioned earlier.

Google™ also provides phrase translation. Note: No computer translation program is perfect. That is because of the differences between each of languages' sentence structure, as well as certain words do not translate well from one language to another. Never the less, I did a test on a page in Spanish and converted it to English and was able to comprehend better than 90% of the document.

I believe this is going to be a huge benefit to the online marketing and advertising world. Imagine the possibilities...!

Saying NO to Flashy Internet Ads on Websites!

I spend a lot of time on the Internet, researching information on different topics, including online advertising. One of the things that is really distracting is the flashy advertising that can be seen on a large number of websites. There are some sites that I will not visit, simply because their advertising is so flashy it just gets in the way of having a good user experience. I believe most of these companies think you have to catch peoples attention with big graphic images in order for a customer conversion to take place.

I have spoken with several engineers, in various industries, who have expressed the same thoughts related to extreme online banner advertising. If I do see an article that I wish to read, with an iterating banner of flash ad, I squeeze the ad off the page if I can, by making the browser window smaller. I have even use the no ad display addon options for various web browsers in order to prevent any of these ads from being displayed.

All the companies that overuse banner advertising with heavy flash ads need to wise up and realize the Internet is not a TV. People and businesses use the Internet mainly for B2B research, B2B and B2C online buying of goods, and consumer informational reading purposes at favorite websites or online news outlets. Sure you get the gamers on dedicated websites, but for business, news, and research purposes go light with the flash on your website.

Internet Ethics

Business Marketing and Advertising Ethics

Mirror Websites

I read an excellent article this morning at: http://www.seo-news.com/

The title of the article was "Avoid Search Engine Blacklisting"

The author went over a number of key points about what individuals should do in order to not become blacklisted.

The question I have for everyone, is should this also apply to other search engines themselves?

Take a close look at the results. Note update 10/31/05: Results have changed significantly since writing this posting. Maybe some good is coming out of this reporting.
Example searches:

B2B from legal, ethical and regulatory perspective

b2b and b2c ethics

Are there two sets of rules? One set for individuals and another for other search companies? Should the same rules apply to all? Things can get frustrating for those of us that are trying to do it right, when we see things like this. I am not saying that we never make mistakes in the way we fine tune our pages for the search engines but how do you go up against something like this? Note: On the results from another company, there is a snippet (a small piece of text info the search engines pick up) that comes from my site. I seem to be fighting myself... Weird...

Then the search result below from this search engine, the more I write, the more results they generate for me.
ethics AND B2B
But the weird thing is, later they will then turn around and use that against me in another search result or on another search engine's results page. I actually don't need all those results. One or two of my top pages would do...

So it seems the more you write about something on a subject, certain search companies will turn around and try to make it look like you are spamming them... This is really weird...

Then there are the unethical companies that simply cut and paste the search results, where the whole new search result has 90% of the exact word formations from our copyrighted works.

Differences between B2B marketing site and B2C sites

The links above take you to the Google™ search results for those keywords. Is it alright to have other search engine results inside a search result? Before you answer that question I suggest you read this about copyright legal issues.

Study the Results. Note: By the time you read this the search results will probably have changed. I will have to show a picture most of the time in the future...

Warning Note: Do not try to save the results and then try to display them again, (even if the idea is to display a copyright infringement or other ethical / legal violations) because the search results will show the page again... I found out the hard way...

The Art of Branding


Branding is an art form


The Art Of Branding Posted by Hello

The definition of branding varies all over the board. There are some very specific definitions, as well as a more expansive and completely encompassing definition of what a brand is. The one that I believe is really at the heart of the matter is: "A brand is a collection of perceptions in the mind of the consumer".



All companies are in the process of branding themselves. That is not implying they are all aware of it. How well they do this, depends on being aware of the process.

Whose Page Is It? Search Results

Whose page is it?

The following was an exercise in online discovery and looking at the search results in various search engines. Then comparing those search results against the actual pages displayed in the result and asking a simple question as a thesis.

If the majority of the search results, within any one search result, display web page results from a select group of websites or websites owned by someone else, then whose page is really being displayed?

Compare the search results below, and notice the patterns. All links should open in a new window, but the same new window.

Note: Over time I suspect the search result patterns will drastically change. We will have to analyze it every so often and see what changes occur over time.

Interesting Twist...

If you get to this point and opened all the links and still asking yourself, - - What is he talking about? - -, then you really have not paid attention to the results. Look at it again from the top down if you still do not understand.


Reflection on another point

***Note: All of us involved in website work probably have made mistakes... Heck probably by placing all these URLs in this blog is a mistake... I don't know... We do need some specific guidelines as to how much is too much. In the process of trying to show a pattern of something, I probably made another pattern... I will point out that I chose to place the references first in this blog. Most sites are not placing any references at all and thus are in a number of instances guilty of plagiarism or copyright infringement, not to mention crossing over boundaries in other legal, regulatory, and ethical areas for publishing, marketing, advertising, sales, and general business practices.

I believe there needs to be very specific detailed guidelines for Internet marketing guidance regarding links. To say someone has too many contextual website links is talking in generalities and does not provide a framework for improving the Internet structure.

The Internet is supposed to be about links. If the website links are related to the subject information or provide additional information for the reader then that is good. This also provides a means of giving credit to your references.

Consider also: A large number of search engines are doing exactly what some in the SEO community are saying about contextual links. This is being done by various search engines in the form of saved results being fed back into another search company. Each and every one of the saved results is a contextual link and thus is doing exactly what some are claiming being done by individuals. In that case the whole page is made up of nothing but links. An interesting side bar note: One Search company even places old pages from others that have been long gone into their results. Sometimes it is the old sometimes the new. My impression is they are using it only for getting a higher ranking in the competitor's engine.

In addition, with the saved results, it results in a large number of copyright, legal, ethical, and regulatory issues which in fact cross global geographic bounds. In fact, some unethical companies are using the SERP’s (Search Engine Results Page) and pasting it into their own pages for the sole purpose of improving their rankings. This is like plagiarizing an article. If some companies are doing it, then others feel that it is OK to do. At what point do you stop?

So, the bottom line is, if you have an idea for how much is too much, then share it.

B2B Defined Business to Business (Selling to other businesses)

Any business that sells mainly to other businesses is considered business-to-business or B2B for short. Other countries sometimes use B to B for short.

B2C Defined Business to Consumer (Selling to consumers)

Any business that sells directly to consumers, for the most part is considered business-to-consumer, B2C, or B to C for short.

Companies can be both B2B and B2C at the same time. Target markets for each of these areas are handled differently. B2B generally takes more on the front end to make a sale, although places like office supply outlets create B2B accounts for their business customers, and businesses will generally keep coming back to a self serve eCommerce website to place additional orders without ever talking with a salesman.

No matter which company you are classified under, or the differences between B2B or B2C for closing a sale, the emphasis for marketing and advertising online is to get your message in front of the buyer or consumer. That generally means using the search engines to the best capabilities in both an Internet marketing emphasis and an online keyword advertising targeted campaign to maximize the power of the Internet.

B2B and B2C Marketing Ethics In Business

B2B and B2C Marketing Ethics In Business And Advertising ethics and B2B


The unsolicited computer phone calls…

How many of you out there want to voice your frustration about being interrupted in the middle of dinner by those nagging automated computer calls?

After putting in a long day of work I come home and just want to relax. Instead, I receive this automated dialer phone call with a long lag, at which a marketing person comes online and tries to sell you something that you don’t want to even hear about.

The list of numbers comes from a database that is sold to these marketing people. For database removal listings go here: http://www.crimes-of-persuasion.com/Victims/list_removal.htm

I have installed a little device that is supposed to stop most of these by sending a little ping or some sort of signal when the phone is picked up. This then signals the data base that your number is not a good number and the connection does not go through. After several months of using it my wife and I have both come to the conclusion that it helps.

What it doesn’t help against is, the pushy sales people that call at various times.

Sound Off Here… What stories do you have? (Nice language only)

ePrompter The B2B Marketing Tool That Could

Global Internet B2B Marketing "B2C" Resources "B2B vs. B2C" Online Marketing Strategies

The little tool that could...

How many of you out there have too many email addresses and not enough time to continually log in to each one?

Well, if your like me I have numerous ones that I need to be in touch with on a regular basis. I don't have time to check them individually.

For the past year or so I have been using ePrompter™, a program that monitors them for me. It sits in the lower right hand corner of my tool bar and displays a different colored circle with a number in it. Each color represents a different mail box. When an email arrives at one of the mail boxes the number count is updated and a little ping goes off to let you know you have mail. The neat thing about this one is that it does not display full graphic images, but it does display url links. This makes it very easy to preview the email. If you want to view all the graphics later then you can use your main program to do it.

I use this in conjunction with Mozilla for my email organization.

Some of the features:

Feature Overview

* Read and delete email without opening your email client
* Unique Rotating Tray Icon shows # of new messages in each account.
* Choice of five screensavers that show # of new messages per account.

B2B and B2C Marketing Ethics In - The Unsolicited Faxes

B2B B2C Marketing Ethics In Business And Advertising Ethics

Here is another area of Business Marketing and Advertising Ethics that really tics me off!

The unsolicited Faxes.

Every day I receive at least one unsolicited FAX. Guess where they get my number from…

I am sure there are robots that continually cruise the net and log in phone and fax numbers and then these businesses turn around and sell the lists to people that try to market there product directly to you.

At the bottom of the fax is a number to call to be removed from the database. My gut feeling is at times that if you respond to this number that just confirms the number to the database.

I know there are laws on the books for this…
These laws are not working.

Fax do not call lists. Government sites

Internet B2B Marketing "B2C" Marketing Tool

Internet B2B Marketing "B2C" Marketing Tool.

If you are only using Internet Explorer as the main browser for doing research or just browsing the web, then you are really missing the boat. Check out my favorite for market research as well as cruising on the web. Mozilla is free, works with all systems and is a great tool to handle multiple Email accounts and keep them separate while not having to jump around with different log on names as you do in Outlook®. But that is not its only strength... The best part about it is, it allows you to open up multi-tabs with-in the same window to other links by simply right clicking on the mouse and open in new tab. Tabs can be bookmarked as a group of favorites and then with a click of a mouse they can all be opened in one window at the same time. This is great if you have several websites that are visited each day.

The beauty of this software is: for research purposes, one can very easily navigate and cross reference items. Use it to compare several different items and pages at the same time.

Mozilla and the new Firefox are supported by a large community of programmers.

For the http://www.apple.com/ community Safari is the program for you. I have had a little opportunity to evaluate this one. It is a very impressive program and has a lot of the same features that the Mozilla browser can do.

What is your favorite browser?
