Clogging Up The Relevant Online World
By: James A. Warholic
In a relevant article published online at the Canadian Technology Human Resource Board, Bureau canadien des ressources humaines in technologie, Do Online Business Ethics Exist? By: Niall Roche, the author hits the internet nail on-the-head.
Much of the information currently found online is nothing more then chewed up, spit out, copyright infringed, and general lack of business ethics; where websites even make a mockery of the legal system by cheating and selling copyright protected works to other individuals for use in student term papers and other works that are falsely being passed off as original content.
The following excerpt is from the article @ CTHRB.CA:
In the world of online busines [business] something has gone wrong. Something has gone badly wrong. In the pursuit of wealth and success business ethics have not so much fallen by the wayside as been torn up, stomped on and burned to ash. Where some loose form of rule may have applied before there now only exists chaos, greed and hype. Article Title - Do Online Business Ethics Exist?
Why Have Business Ethics Been Stomped On Online?
10 out 14 Emails Sent. Is it any wonder that we need to filter out 70 plus percent of everything we read?
The majority of information written online and tied closely to the vest of certain individuals and websites, only to be released by paying a hefty subscription fee is content that can be found online for Free. Free information for all to read. Many times the websites that are charging an annual subscription are taking the same info and re-publishing it for their subscribers. Or, pay the subscription fee and your eyes can see the article that is re-wrapped with a brand new bow placed on top.
What about the guys selling yet another overpriced, overhyped infoproduct that is the, alleged, solution to all your traffic, content or financial woes? Selling a product for a fair price is good. Selling the same product for a vastly inflated price is well.... criminal.
Unfortunately, I personally believe that people have forgotten how to think creatively for themselves. Critical thinking skills have been long since dropped from our school systems. Children are taught what to think instead of how to think. People are spoon feed information their whole lives, so when it comes to the Internet the spoon feeding just continues on at hyperlink speeds. Much of what is written today needs to be filtered out by critical thinking and some commonsense skills.
Internet Marketing Stories
The online advertising and marketing stories never end. I suspect that even some of the ads that might show up in this web page will be for turning one hundred dollars into ten thousand dollars or how to make thousands of dollars overnight on eBay simply by following this or that program. Hundreds of thousands of people are looking for the get rich quick schemes. Even the people that should know better fall prey in times of weakness to the ploys of these individuals. Times are rough for many people since the turn of the century. With companies cutting back, through downsizing or reorganization, have seen many individuals let go with pink slips or early retirements. The economic condition is such that it makes it ripe for the flim flam artists to take advantage of the situation.
Online Internet Skills
How are your Internet skills? If you own a business and are looking to get your website to the top of the search engines do not buy into the SEO promise that an organization can guarantee the number one position on Google, Yahoo!, or MSN Search Engine results. No one can guarantee internet position #1! There simply are way too many factors that go into the search algorithms, plus, these same search algorithms are updated and changed all the time. Do not fall prey to the Search Engine Data Merging Advertising Scams.
So, consider carefully what SEO Internet marketing promises are made. Remember the 70 percent rule from above.
