There are literally thousands of domain names that expire every day. Most of these domain names will already have an established traffic base, backlinks, and search engine listings. With so many domain names expiring every day it can become difficult to locate the domain names that you need. Fortunately there are services available that you can sign for that will help you to locate the perfect domain names. Almost everyone knows about the benefits that commerce has gained with the Internet. Not only are there advantages for sellers, but buyers are benefited by the ease of shopping and the wide variety of information that is available. With the use of the Internet anyone can offer products or services for sale to millions of prospective customers and clients. The beauty of online marketing is that you can do it for very little cost when compared to a physical store. Also your website will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week even while you are away from your computer. For the most part your online business runs itself.


This knowledge has encouraged many people to start their own website and work from home. However, a problem that all these webmasters must face is how to drive traffic to their site. You can build a well thought out and convincing website, but if you don't get visitors you cannot make any money.


There are numerous methods that can be used to develop traffic for a website. Many of these techniques can be very time consuming and expensive. There is good news for those of you who would like to get a significant increase in your traffic at very little cost. This method involves expired domain names and the use of redirection. Using this method of website promotion you simply purchase expired domain names that match the theme of a website, or websites, that you currently promote and use redirects to send the traffic to your existing URLs.


When a new domain name is registered the purchaser pays for the registration in one year intervals - usually one year at a time. Throughout that first year, or even several years, the webmaster will promote the website and build backlinks and develop traffic flow. Sometimes, when the registration period is up the webmaster will fail to pay for the renewal. There can be many different reasons for this, but generally they just lose interest or get involved in other projects. The important thing to know is that once the domain name expires it will now be available for others to register.

If you thought back to the first things you ever learned about the history of America, the one that jumps out is that Columbus sailed the ocean blue and discovered America is 1492. While the date is correct, we later learned when our study of history became more scholarly that there is some dispute about whether Columbus discovered America at all. So what is the real legacy that this legend of Columbus has given to the American culture that has made him such a revered figure in cultural history?

So much of the Columbus story is approximate that, at first review, we would almost relegate the story of how Columbus discovered America to the level of a myth that borders on superhero worship. But Columbus was not a myth. There really was an explorer named Columbus who carried out three bold journeys across the ocean and during those journeys, he did indeed discover the new world. His ships really were named the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria and he did indeed embark one of those three voyages in 1492.

The legacy of Columbus then is more than just the facts of his exploratory journeys and their outcome. There is reason to believe that Columbuss fabled discovery of America did not occur on North American soil but somewhat further south of here, somewhere in the Bahamas. But the legacy of Columbus lies in his spirit and the challenge he took on that is part of the American spirit and one we identify with so strongly.

Part of the legend was that Columbus embarked on this trip for the new world despite the prevailing scientific belief that the world was flat. Now research in recent times have surfaced sufficient documentation to show that sailors of that time never did believe that teaching. Their extensive knowledge of navigation and astronomy, which is crucial for any successful sea voyage, was sufficient for sailors to know that the earth was round and that they would never fall off the edge. However, the image of those brave men launching out to sea, against the advice of popular opinion, to find something new and exciting so connects with the American spirit of discovery and adventure that this myth persists as part of the legacy of Columbus.

Americans do have a tremendous sense of discovery and adventure and a deeply seated need to conquer new lands, to reach out beyond their own grasp and to do the impossible. This was the spirit of Manifest Destiny which gripped the nation long before there was any reason to believe that this meager band of colonists had the resources to settle a great nation. Americans always have had such a firm belief in themselves and a core faith that they could do the impossible. That part of the American spirit is what connects to Columbuss setting out on these bold missions facing certain dangers so he too could discover new lands and have great adventures.

The legacy of Columbus also lies in the American desire to explore. Even though the source of the quotation is only a science fiction show, the mission of the fictional space ship The Enterprise sums up a deep desire in the heart of all Americans.

Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Her five year mission: to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before.

For Americans, the mission of James Kirk is a perfect restatement of the mission of Christopher Columbus. And it is the mission of America which has driven this country and its citizens to discoveries and achievements that have never been done before. It is that spirit of Columbus in all Americans that is one of the things that have made this country great.

No matter how brilliant your website design is, if it is hard to reach the content of your site then your site is as useful as an empty shell. Here are some tips to improve the usability of your website to ensure it serves its functions optimally.

The first method is to make sure the typography of your content is suitable. If you have large blocks of text, make sure to use CSS to space out the lines accordingly. The longer a single line of text is, the greater the line-height of each line should be. Also, make sure the font size of your text is big enough to read easily. Some sites have 10-pixel-tall text in Verdana font; while that may look neat and tidy, you have to really strain your eyes to read the actual text.

Make it easy for visitors to find content that they want on your site. If you have thousands of articles on your site and a certain visitor wants to find one single article from that pile, you have to provide a feasible means to enable visitors to do that without hassle. Be it an SQL-driven database search engine or just a glossary or index of articles that you have, providing such a feature will make sure your visitors can use your site with ease.

Ensure that your site loads fast if you do not want to lose visitors. Most internet users will leave a website if it doesn't load completely within 15 seconds, so make sure the crime de la crime of your website is delivered to the visitors as soon as possible to retain their attention.

Last of all, test each and every link on your site before it goes online. There is nothing more effective in tarnishing your professional image than broken links, so be very careful about that.
