factors that Best Match takes into account when ranking listings for search results?
That depends on the listing type:
For BIN listings Best Match takes into account seller performance standards, recent search impressions & sell-through rate, recent sales, listing title, price and whether free shipping is offered. Additionally, TRS status is also important as well as whether you offer Premium Service for your listing.
For Auction style listings – mostly the same factors as above WITHOUT the sales history (as there will be just one sale) plus the listing end time is important too. Listings ending sooner will be featured higher in search results.
This is what eBay tells us on their FAQ page here.
You don’t have to be too smart to figure this out though. Just do a quick search on eBay for any item and you’ll see that on the first page there are listings with some common qualities like:
Most first page listings will be from Top Rated Sellers (TRS);
Most first page listings will offer FREE shipping and Premium Service;
Most first page listings will have an extensive sales history;
Most first page listings will have the BEST price for that particular item; see blogs, shopping and more at Keywebco.com
Onion Rings, love them, and so I keep reinventing them, probably to give me an excuse to indulge. Here are my top tips for making killer onion rings and strings…
To make the best onion rings! try to use panko for this it will really make a difference to the texture, use large sweet onions preferably Bermuda.
I use Jim's great panko breadcrumb recipe for these Homemade Panko Bread Crumbs
2 large sweet onions, peeled and sliced thin into rings
1⁄2 cup buttermilk
CRISPY COATING MIXTURE
1 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon seasoning salt (or regular salt, can use less than 1 teaspoon if desired)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional but good to add in, I use lots as we like extreme heat)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1⁄2 cup dry breadcrumbs (preferably panko bread crumbs)
oil (for frying)
Heat the oil to about 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl whisk together buttermilk and eggs.
In a bowl mix together the coating mixture, then place into a shallow dish (a shallow dish makes for easier coating of the rings).
Dip/coat the onion rings into the buttermilk mixture.
Then coat generously into the dry coating mixture.
Fry briefly in hot oil (turning once) until onion rings are lightly brown on both sides.
The number one tip I can give is to make sure that your oil is hot enough. That means it needs to be at 350F. This can sometimes take much longer than you think, and the only way to know for sure is to use a thermometer that is made for the purpose.
Choose your oil carefully, some are better than others for deep frying. I like Safflower oil, but other good choices are peanut, sunflower, and canola.
Work in batches, don’t crowd your pan with too many rings, they’ll stick together and lower the temperature of the oil. Don’t worry, there’s a kind of pleasant zen to frying onion rings…just go with it and enjoy the process. Be aware that the wider your pan, the more you’ll be able to fry at a single time. Each batch only takes about 2 minutes. You don’t need a huge vat to fry onions rings, try using a saute pan, or wok.
Delegate responsibility when it comes to battering ~ designate a dry hand and a wet hand, otherwise you’ll have a big mess on your hands…literally! A skimming tool will help you retrieve your crispy rings without getting spattered.

How to make money online?
Search frequency: 135,000 times per month
As someone who has not only worked for various companies who have made substantial amounts of money online, and who has several initiatives to do so myself, I can tell you one thing: it doesn’t come easy!
It not only takes persistent and high-quality effort to build a YouTube subscriber base or to create a website that generates regular traffic, it also takes money to make money.
We need to debunk the belief that the internet is a great way to get rich quick. Realize that everyone who is advertising their online course, seminar, or book designed to help you do this, is doing that as their primary tactic to attain wealth -and they’re paying a hell of a lot of money to get their ad in your face. Those who have attained it have much bigger and better things to do. See Much More at Keywebco.com
How to lose weight fast?
Search frequency: 301,000 times per month
On the surface, this too seems well-intentioned since it’s great to see that a large portion of us are regularly searching for ways to improve our health. But what concerns me about this is largely the last word: fast.
We live in a world where we need instantaneous results (hence why we’re turning to Google in the first place) or we don’t bother. Long-term solutions exist but we have virtually no confidence in our ability to commit to anything, so we instead opt for ways to cheat the system.
If losing weight or gaining muscle is truly important to you, than focus on what you’ll need to do to keep yourself motivated to put the work in to get there rather than what can zap it away. See Much More at Keywebco.com
When you find yourself thinking a negative thought, stop it immediately by any means necessary. Slap yourself in the face, yell something positive at the top of your lungs or jump up and down. Do whatever it takes to get back to a positive mindset as such is essential for continual happiness and success. Learn more at Keywebco.com
Here’s the thing – It’s really hard to judge how much a website cost just by looking at the design.
Consider this — It is indisputable that the Lamborghini Spyder is one hot car. Even so, what most Lambo enthusiasts love about this car is not how it looks, but how it sounds – it is the roar of the v10 engine that takes the Spyder from 0 to 60mph in just 3.4 seconds.
Just like the $250,000 Lambo, what makes up the cost of a website is not only how the website looks on the surface, but rather, what lies “under the hood” that makes a website work.
So, don’t judge a website by its cover — its design is only one slice of a much bigger pie.
After helping hundreds of businesses to create their websites, I’ve done and have seen a lot.
Having experimented with different website building software and tools, I’ve developed strong opinions about…
What’s worth your money and what’s not worth it.
What to focus on and what to toss out the window.
What matters and want doesn’t.
Whenever you are trying something new, having someone in your corner who has experience in the subject can really help.
This is why the value of designers or developers goes beyond just the surface design of the website.
Their experiences, technical skills, and broad product knowledge can help you…
Avoid hidden technical and financial pitfalls; and

Harry Potter is a series of fantasy novels written by British author J. K. Rowling. The novels chronicle the lives of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Wikipedia
I am a big fan of all the books and movies.
Rowling said her favorite beast in the series is the Phoenix, a mythical sacred bird who ignites into flames when it reaches 500 or 1,000 years old only to emerge from the flames as a new and young phoenix.
Interesting Phoenix Fact
The "Order of the Phoenix" is a secret organization led by Albus Dumbledore, who is dedicated to fighting Lord Voldemort and his followers, the Death Eaters
Polyjuice Potion Jelly Shots
Ginger Ale mixture
1/2 cup ginger ale
1 envelope plain gelatin
1/2 cup ginger (or pineapple) vodka
1/2 cup canned pineapple juice (fresh won't work - the enzymes in fresh pineapple interfere with the gelatin)
1 envelope plain gelatin
1/2 cup pineapple vodka
1/2 cup water
1 envelope plain gelatin
1/2 cup lime sherbet, melted
Prepare the three gelatin mixes as follows:
Ginger Ale: Pour the ginger ale in a medium saucepan. Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir in the vodka.
Pineapple: Pour the pineapple juice in a medium saucepan. Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir in the vodka.
Lime: Pour the water in a medium saucepan. Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir in the melted sherbet.
Pour each mixture into a separate bowl and refrigerate until partially set. (Just starting to change from liquid to solid - about 20 to 25 minutes.)
Prepare a standard 1lb loaf pan about 8" x 5", glass or non-reactive metal) by spraying with a little cooking spray and then wiping out with a paper towel.
Give each mixture a quick stir. Drop alternating spoonfuls of the three mixtures into the pan, until all the gelatin has been transferred. Refrigerate until fully set (at least 6 hours or overnight - extra time is needed for the gelatins to bond)
To serve, cut into rectangles. Makes about 18 jelly shots.
Harry Potter’s pet snowy owl, Hedwig, shares her name with two famous saints. One is Saint Hedwig of Andechs (1174-1243), a former duchess noted for her benevolence and compassionate nature. The other is Saint Hedwig, Queen of Poland (1373-1399). The death of Hedwig in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows represents Harry’s loss of innocence and coming of age.
Interesting Hedwig Fact
Seven different owls played Hedwig; their names are Gizmo, Kasper, Oops, Swoops, Oh Oh, Elmo and Bandit
Traditional British Treacle Tart with brown butter, rosemary, and lemon.
Author: Sarah Coates
For the tart base:
1 cup (150g) plain flour
¾ stick (75g) butter
pinch of salt
2-3 tbsp cold water
For the filling:
¼ stick (25g) butter
zest and juice of half a lemon
⅔ cup + 1tbsp (340g) Lyle's Golden Syrup
1 tsp finely chopped rosemary
1 + ¼ cups fresh breadcrumbs (wholemeal or white)(there is no weight measure here because the weight of different pieces of bread will vary. The volume is key)
⅔ cup (70g) almond meal
Preheat the oven to 375F/180C and grease a shallow 9½ inch/23 cm cake tin, tart tin or pie dish.
To make the base, work the butter into the flour using either your fingers, a food processor or a stand mixer. Once the butter and flour look like sandy crumbs, gradually add just enough ice water to bring the mixture together into a soft dough.
Press the dough evenly into the base of your baking dish

Zoom users can choose to record sessions, collaborate on projects, and share or annotate on one another’s screens, all with one easy-to-use platform. Zoom offers quality video, audio, and a wireless screen-sharing performance across Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Blackberry, Zoom Rooms, and H.323/SIP room systems. How do I begin? To begin, simply go to http://zoom.us and click on Sign up. From there you can enter your first and last name, and your e-mail address to sign up. Additional functionality will be added in the next few months that will allow you to use your NLU username and password. Where do I find a desktop or mobile app? Once you have signed up or logged in, click on Host a Meeting, the desktop app will auto-download. Alternatively, you can click on the download footer link at http://zoom.us For iOS, visit the Apple App Store or by searching "zoom."

To do so, simply click “Share Screen” at the bottom of the window. Note: Only one person can use screen-share at a time, and one person must “Stop Sharing” before someone else can start sharing. 2. To stop sharing the screen, simply click “Stop Sharing.” Before your meeting: Control video and audio quality. Invest in a quality webcam and speaker and microphone headset. These provide better video and audio than your computer’s built-in system. Try to hold meetings in quiet, indoor locations to control ambient noise. Adjust your lighting. Don’t sit directly in front or beside a bright light source, or else all the audience sees is a bright light and a shadowy figure. Experiment with moving lamps and your camera until you can see your brightly-lit face on the screen. Think about your background. Try to provide a nice, plain background. If your treadmill is in your office and you use it more as a place to hang laundry, that’s not really the best visual for your audience. You can’t control everything in a mobile environment, but you should give some thought to the background prior to your meeting. Practice speaking to the camera and not the screen. Our tendency is to look at the person on the screen, but you should look at the camera when you speak so the audience feels like you’re talking directly to them. Optimize Zoom. Sharing. Generally, DO NOT select “Share Your Desktop” (unless you want every pop-up email and private message on display for your audience!). Instead, open up any relevant documents before the call and share only those during the meeting. Note that when you share, Zoom prioritizes the shared item to the bandwidth. This can reduce the other video feeds’ quality, so don’t share longer than necessary. Practice hosting.

https://keywebco.com/blogs/news/grilling-tips-and-awesome-recipes The heart of grilling lies in grilling techniques. What separates the master grillers from the masses is that the experts understand how to manage their grill.
Sure, recipes are important, but techniques matter most. Thus, here are the 10 essentials for better grilling. Follow these tips and you will become a true BBQ master. This information was taken from Weber, a manufacturer of grills.
1. Preheat the Grill
Preheat your grill with the lid closed for 10 to 15 minutes.
With all the coals glowing red, or all the gas burners on high, the temperature under the lid should reach 500F.
The heat loosens any bits and pieces of food hanging onto the grate, making it easy to brush them off.
Preheating your grill also helps prevent food from sticking to the grate, and gets the grate hot enough to sear properly.
2. Keep it Clean
When bits of food have stuck to your cooking grate, and the grate is hot, clean it with a stainless steel brush. This step is not only for cleanliness. It also prevents your food from sticking.
Note: Replace brush if any loose bristles are found on cooking grates or brush.
3. Oil the Food, Not the Grate
Oil prevents food from sticking. It adds flavor and moisture, too.
Lightly brushing or spraying the food with oil works better than brushing the grate.
4. Keep the Lid Down
Here are 4 important reasons why the lid should be closed as much as possible.
1. It keeps the grates hot enough to sear the food.
2. It speeds up the cooking time and prevents the food from drying out.
3. It traps the smokiness that develops when fat and juices vaporize in the grill.
4. It prevents flare-ups by limiting oxygen.
5. Time and Temperature
By monitoring your time and temperature you avoid overcooking your food.
Use a timer!
If you are grilling in a colder climate or in a higher altitude, the cooking times will be longer. If the wind is blowing hard, it will lower a gas grill's temperature and raise a charcoal grill's temperature.
6. Know When to Be Direct, Know When to be Indirect
Direct heat (when the fire is directly below the food) is best for relatively small, tender pieces of food that cook in 20 minutes or less.
Indirect heat (when the fire is on either side of the food) is best for larger, tougher cuts of meat that require more than 20 minutes of cooking.
7. Maintaining Temperatures
Our grills are designed to give you complete control over the heat inside the grill. By having a consistent, reliable heat source and proper venting, the grill can maintain low or high temperatures effectively.
The dampers on the top and bottom of the grill control the airflow inside the grill. The more air flowing into the grill, the hotter the fire will grow and the more frequently you will have to replenish it. To show the rate of your fires burn, close the top vent as much as half and keep the lid on as much as possible. The bottom vent should be left open whenever you are grilling so you don’t kill your fire.
Under normal circumstances, a typical charcoal briquette fire will lose about 100˚F of heat over 40 to 60 minutes. A typical lump charcoal fire will lose heat even faster.
Gas grills have individual control knobs so that you can easily regulate the heat and create different grilling zones easily. You can easily maintain heat levels as low as 200˚F to over 550˚F easily and shift from direct to indirect in minutes.
8. Tame the Flame
Too many flare-ups can burn your food. Keep the lid on as much as possible. This limits the amount of oxygen inside the grill, which will help extinguish any flare-ups.
If the flames are getting out of control, move the food over indirect heat temporarily, until they die down. Then move the food back.
9. Caramelization is Key
One of the biggest reasons for the popularity of grilled food is its seared taste.
To develop this taste for maximum effect, use the right level of heat and resist the temptation to turn food often. Your
Starting the day off in a good way can make your day begin right. An easy way to do that is to enjoy a tasty breakfast. Unfortunately, most tasty breakfasts are not overly healthy.
Below are a few awesome recipes with options. Plus a great YouTube with even more!
Ham & Cheese Breakfast Casserole
Makes: 6 servings
To make ahead: Prepare casserole through
Step 2; refrigerate overnight. Let stand at
room temperature while the oven preheats.
Bake as directed in Step 3.
This healthy update of a traditionally rich ham-and-cheese breakfast strata is made lighter primarily by losing a few egg yolks and using nonfat milk. Gruyère cheese has a delicious, nutty aroma and flavor, which means that with the relatively small amount in this recipe you still get a big impact. To finish the makeover use nutritious, fiber-rich, whole-grain bread instead of white. Results in plenty of flavor, half the calories and one-third the fat of the original.
4 large eggs
4 large egg whites
1 cup nonfat milk
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
5 cups chopped spinach, wilted (see Tip)
4 cups whole-grain bread, crusts removed if desired, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 1/2 pound, 4-6 slices)
1 cup diced ham steak (5 ounces)
1/2 cup chopped jarred roasted red
3/4 cup shredded Gruyère or Swiss
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 7-by-11-inch glass baking dish or a 2-quart casserole with cooking spray.
2. Whisk eggs, egg whites, and milk in a medium bowl. Add mustard, rosemary, and pepper; whisk to combine. Toss spinach, bread, ham and roasted red peppers in a large bowl. Add the egg mixture and toss well to coat. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and push down to compact. Cover with foil.
3. Bake until the custard has set, 40 to 45 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese and continue baking until the pudding is puffed and golden on top, 15 to 20 minutes more. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
Per serving: 286 calories
Exchanges: 1 starch, 1 vegetable,
2 medium-fat meat
Tip: To wilt spinach, rinse thoroughly with cool water. Transfer to a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and punch several holes in it. Microwave on High until wilted,
2 to 3 minutes. Squeeze out excess moisture.
Artichoke-Scrambled Eggs Benedict
Makes: 4 servings
Roasted artichoke bottoms stand in for English muffins in this quick yet elegant. Substitute roasted mushrooms for the pancetta for a vegetarian option. Serve with roasted new potatoes or a tossed salad.
8 canned artichoke bottoms (11/2 cans), rinsed (see Tip)
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
3 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano, divided, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
1/3 cup chopped pancetta
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise 2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon water
6 large eggs
4 large egg whites
2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream
cheese (Neufchâtel) 1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
2. Toss artichoke bottoms with 2 teaspoons oil and 2 teaspoons oregano. Place the top- side down on half of a large baking sheet. Spread pancetta in an even layer on the other half. Roast until the artichokes are just beginning to brown and the pancetta is crispy 12 to 14 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon juice and water in a small bowl until smooth. Beat eggs and egg whites in a large bowl.
4. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the eggs and cook, folding and stirring frequently with a heatproof rubber spatula until almost set about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and fold in cream cheese, the remaining 1 teaspoon oregano, and salt.
5. To serve, divide the artichoke bottoms
among 4 plates. Top each artichoke with equal portions scrambled egg, crispy pancetta, and creamy lemon sauce. Garnish with oregano sprigs, if desired.
Fettuccine is great to cook with, I often use it so, I thought it would be cool to share a few recipes
Fettuccine with butter and cheese
1 pound fettuccine
4 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated (2 cups), plus extra for serving
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 5 pieces
1. Bring 3 quarts water to boil in large Dutch oven. Add pasta and 1 tablespoon salt and cook, stirring frequently, until al dente. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain pasta and return it to pot.
2. Add Parmigiano-Reggiano, butter, reserved cooking water, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the pot. Set pot over low heat and, using tongs, toss and stir vigorously to thoroughly combine, about 1 minute. Remove pot from heat, cover, and let the pasta sit for 1 minute.
3. Toss pasta vigorously once more so sauce thoroughly coats pasta and any cheese clumps are emulsified into the sauce, about 30 seconds. (Mixture may look wet at this point, but the pasta will absorb excess moisture as it cools slightly.) Season with salt to taste.
4. Transfer pasta to individual bowls. (Use rubber spatula as needed to remove any clumps of cheese stuck to tongs and bottom of the pot.) Serve immediately, passing extra Parmigiano-Reggiano separately.
24 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
1 cup butter
3/4 pint heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
1 dash garlic salt
3/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add fettuccini and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
In a large saucepan, melt butter into cream over low heat. Add salt, pepper and garlic salt. Stir in cheese over medium heat until melted; this will thicken the sauce.
Add pasta to sauce. Use enough of the pasta so that all of the sauce is used and the pasta is thoroughly coated. Serve immediately.

15 Picnic Foods And Great Sandwich Recipes I Love A Good Picnic and a large part of the reason why is the great food. It can be a very lowcost food in many cases. 15 Favorite Picnic Foods: German Potato Salad — Potatoes are very inexpensive. Season boiled potatoes with white wine vinegar, olive oil, parsley, and bits of bacon. Chill overnight, and serve cold. Veggies and Dip — Your best cheap options here include carrots and celery with homemade ranch dip. Pasta Salad — There are all sorts of variations on this. Our favorite is the tri-colored pasta with Italian salad dressing, halved cherry tomatoes, and black olives. Hot Dogs — Hot Dogs are also very inexpensive, and they are a picnic/BBQ classic. Deviled Eggs — Eggs are a good, cheap source of protein, and deviled eggs are an easy picnic food to prepare. Fresh Fruit — Our favorites include watermelon, apples, grapes, and strawberries. Corn on the Cob — Very inexpensive. We break the cobs in half so they stretch even further. Many times the kids don’t eat an entire ear of corn. Baked Beans — Beans are also cheap food, and canned baked beans are frequently on sale during the summer months. Jell-O — I have purchased Jell-O for as little as $0.25 a box. We love to make parfaits with alternating scoops of red and blue Jell-O topped with whipped cream and a cherry. Iced Tea/Lemonade — Skip the soda, and opt for ice water, iced sun tea or homemade lemonade instead. Rotisserie Chicken — For around $6.00, a rotisserie chicken can be a real bargain. Serve cold for a picnic, and save leftovers to make chicken salad or stock for soup. Cheese and Crackers — A store like Big Lots has good deals on chips or crackers. Opt for hard cheeses that hold up better in the heat. Garden Salad — Iceberg lettuce, a diced up tomato, shredded carrots, and a sliced cucumber make for a quick, easy, and cheap garden salad. Top with red wine vinegar and olive oil. BLT Sandwiches — Pack sliced bread, cooked bacon, lettuce, and sliced tomato for people to build their own BLT sandwiches. Waldorf Salad — This is one of our summertime favorites. Pressed Grilled Chicken Salad Sandwiches INGREDIENTS 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil 2 tsp. curry powder kosher salt 4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs. total) 2 tbsp. sweet mango chutney 4 tsp. fresh lemon juice 1/4 c. mayonnaise 2 stalks celery, finely chopped 2 scallions, finely chopped 1/2 c. red grapes, quartered 1 (1 1/2-lb.) loaf crusty bread 2 c. baby spinach DIRECTIONS Heat grill to medium-high. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, curry, and 1⁄2 teaspoon salt. Add the chicken and toss to coat. In a small bowl, combine chutney and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Grill chicken until cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes per side, basting with the chutney mixture during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Cut each breast in half lengthwise, then slice 1⁄4" thick. In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and remaining 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Fold in celery, scallions, grapes, and chicken (along with any juices). Cut bread in half through the equator and scoop out the inside of both the top and bottom, leaving a 3⁄4"-thick shell. Line the bottom with spinach and top with chicken. Sandwich with the top half of the bread, wrap tightly in foil and press with a heavy pan for at least 1 hour or up to overnight in the refrigerator. Cut into thick pieces when ready to serve. Green Goddess Sandwiches I like the briny umami that the anchovies add to the mayonnaise, but feel free to leave them out if you prefer. (You may wish to add more salt, garlic, or lemon if you do.) The mayonnaise keeps well for up to a week, staying vibrant green and marrying the flavors together nicely. I like the onions best when freshly pickled, but they will also keep in the fridge for a week or more. Wrapping the sandwiches in parchment paper prior to cutting
Being inspired by Role Models. Yes, we can be inspired and motivated by other people in the world, but it’s not that simple. The very same person might be an inspiration to some and not to others. And the very same person might be an inspiration to you sometimes and not other times.
Nevertheless, the inspiration that we can get from other people is undeniable. No doubt there are people you’ve known or seen who have lit your fire and pushed you to be your greatest self. While I may not know your role models; I want to share one of mine with you. One of my favorite role models is Warren Buffett.
In the world of business and investing, Warren Buffett happens to be one of the few personalities that have maintained a clean record, and that definitely caught my attention. Integrity is a rare character in life but Warren Buffett has maintained the high standards and I aspire to maintain them just like him. Quote by warren Buffett.
“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and only five Minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you will do things differently.” Do you have a role model? Who inspires you? When you find yourself in certain situations; who’s thinking pattern and strategy do you adopt?
I have several role models covering every field of life. I find it helps to choose them to keep focused on the right path. Keywebco.com
If you're an entrepreneur or business owner, getting things done is incredibly important. You have to have vision, you have to plan, and you have to work with great people. But if you never move into action, all of the plans, visions, and staff in the world won't save you.
Don't confuse being busy with getting things accomplished. It's possible to work an absurd number of hours without actually making much progress. Unfortunately, being busy is much easier than being productive. You need to know both where you are and what you want to accomplish every day. This is not that bulky business plan you never look at. This is about knowing what should happen every single day and which of these tasks will move the needle most for your business. Use a prioritized checklist.
By having a list of all that needs to be done, with the most important projects first, you'll set yourself up for success. Checking off tasks is satisfying, and you'll ensure the key ones aren't forgotten. Having a focused, productive day isn't always easy. However, by following a checklist plan you should be well on your way to getting all of your truly important tasks done each day. In the end, you'll find yourself truly productive. not just busy.

What to do if you’re feeling blue. Try to think about all of the other things that you value in life, such as your friends, family, and health, and you'll see that you probably have much to be happy about and thankful for, even if you don't feel very happy or thankful in the moment. Numerous studies have shown that gratitude is deeply connected with happiness. Think about good memories. If you've lived through them once, you can have them again. That's the beautiful thing about memories; just because things may seem bad right now doesn't mean that they'll be that way tomorrow. In the case of sadness based on a minor life event, such as getting a bad mark on an assignment, put the event into perspective and consider whether you'll feel sad in 10 years and whether the event will even matter then. Consider using that old phrase, "don't sweat the small stuff." Make an effort to find one thing to be happy about each day. There are lots of challenges on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram that use hashtags such as "100happydays" or "findthelight" to encourage people to find little moments of happiness and gratitude in their everyday lives. Even if your sadness is based on a traumatic life event, such as the loss of your spouse, reflecting more broadly on your life may be useful. For example, you may find comfort in remembering the good memories with your now-deceased partner as well as a sense of happiness and gratitude that you had him in your life, even as you grieve the loss that was too soon.

https://keywebco.com/blogs/news/podcasts-tips-to-start-and-whyPodcasts Tips To Start And Why
As a small business owner with a very limited budget, I am always looking for ways to help grow my business and blogging audience. Not very long ago, eCom Tips Podcast was started for that reason. It was something I could do and not spend a lot of money in the process.
You May wonder what podcasts have to do with business. Below I have compiled information that will be useful in understanding podcasting and creating one. Also, the reasons why they are good to do.
The superpower of podcasts
Podcasts can perform so many functions:
They can educate.
They can entertain.
They can inform.
They can inspire.
They can garner laughs.
They can gather tears.
But there is one grand function podcasts perform that arch above all of these and more. And it is the single most important reason why you should seriously consider starting a podcast.
They connect content creators with content consumers, and they do it in a way that cannot be duplicated by any other content medium.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, podcast “is a program (as of music or talk) made available in digital format for automatic download over the Internet”.
To put it simply, it’s a spoken form of entertainment, providing a scientific explanation of certain topics, or analyzing and commenting on a topic connected to different fields of speaker’s expertise. However, creating a good, successful podcast which people will enjoy may not be easy. Of course, it doesn’t require to have a degree in podcast making or journalism but it’s good to know the basic rules of a valuable and interesting podcast. And since Keywebco has recently launched a series of podcast series called The Tip Whisperer, it’s worth to bring our audience closer to the idea of a podcast.
It’s not difficult to do a podcast. What’s hard is getting people to listen to it. I’m not going to mislead anybody, there are a lot of podcasts out there. What anyone has to do to get anyone to listen to it, who knows? I don’t know. Before you were chosen by a network or a label or a comedy club and given an opportunity, here it all rests with you and how you find your way out of the tremendous pile of stuff. That’s the trick. I think that once you start having big ideas about how much money you’re going to make from your podcast, or how you’re going to get this or that out there or what needs to happen and a lot of energy goes into that, it sort of amplifies the possibilities for disappointment.
A successful podcast requires precise components, both external and internal. And these comprise of a few specific elements. And every host of a podcast should pay attention to all of them. And it doesn’t matter if you’re an expert or a beginner.
The secret to podcast success is sticking with it and making it fun for yourself. The podcasts that keep my attention are those where I can feel the hosts and guests are enjoying themselves or are really passionate about the subject matter. The connective tissue between storytelling, advice, and comedy is passion.
The thing that will undoubtedly make the work easier is the below tips for good podcasts:
Good equipment is the number one rule in making a good podcast. It’s worth to invest in special tools for creating audio content such as microphone, headphones, and software with which you will be able to work on your material.
Be an expert
If you don’t know what you’ll be talking about, you’ll get lost and confused. It’s good to talk about topics and issues you are good at and have a wide knowledge. Otherwise, you’ll sound unprofessional and people won’t enjoy listening to you. And if it happens that you’ll know that during the particular episode you’ll talk about something different than usual, make good research to avoid embarrassment. If the podcast is recorded, you can always add or cut out parts but when it’s life, it may no

Everyone gets a little down in the dumps sometimes. Rather than searching the internet for cat pictures or drowning your sorrows in junk food, check out this short story. We have put together a podcast, both real and fictional, to pull you from your slump, make you smile and inspire you. Today’s story is The Elephant Rope. As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”
The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were. Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?
Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.
Laziness won’t get you anywhere
“In ancient times, a king had his men place a boulder on a roadway. He then hid in the bushes, and watched to see if anyone would move the boulder out of the way. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers passed by and simply walked around it.
Many people blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none of them did anything about getting the stone removed.
One day, a peasant came along carrying vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to push the stone out of the way. After much pushing and straining, he finally managed.
After the peasant went back to pick up his vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and note from the King explain that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the road.”

https://keywebco.com/blogs/news/famous-quotes-and-sayings-from-everything Everyone needs a little inspiration from time to time. Whether you’re going through a break-up, you’ve just lost your job, or you simply woke up feeling a little insecure this morning—we’ve all had one of those days. Feeding your mind inspiring quotes daily is a great practice to boost your positivity. Here is famous quotes on life, love, and success from your favorite authors, philosophers, athletes, and celebrities: “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because the reality is finally better than your dreams.” “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” “The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.” “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” “When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” “I can’t give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.” “Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.” “I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.” “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” “Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” “Our greatest fear should not be of failure… but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.” “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” “Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” “If you want to be happy, be happy, if you want to be free be free.” “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” “Success is just a war of attrition. Sure, there’s an element of talent you should probably possess. But if you just stick around long enough, eventually something is going to happen.” “The good news is that the moment you decide that what you know is more important than what you have been taught to believe, you will have shifted gears in your quest for abundance. Success comes from within, not from without.” “It is impossible to escape the impression that people commonly use false standards of measurement — that they seek power, success and wealth for themselves and admire them in others, and that they underestimate what is of true value in life.” “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.” “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” “A
It’s ridiculous to think that we have one body, one sole means of functionin in life. It amazes me that some people are too lazy to take care of themselves. Fit bodies lead to better health, confidence and more success with romantic endeavors. I’d say those are 3 very good reasons to get in shape. Plus the feeling of self Accomplishment can definitely change your life and how that life feels while living it. Keywebco.com
Remember people’s names
so that they feel appreciated and for your own future benefit when you want something from that person. To do this, say their name back to them when they introduce themselves. Then repeat the name in your head a number of times until you are sure you have it. Continue to use their name in conversation as much as possible to remove any chance of forgetting it. If you’re still having trouble, make up a rhyme about their name: “Dan the Man” or “Natalie flatters me.”
Develop an endless curiosity about this world.
Become an explorer and view the world as your jungle. Stop and observe all of the little things as completely unique events. Try new things. Get out of your comfort zone and try to experience as many different environments and sensations as possible. This world has so much to offer, so why not take advantage of it?
Constantly try to reduce your attachment to possessions.
Those who are heavy-set with material desires will have a lot of trouble when their things are taken away from them or lost. Possessions do end up owning you, not the other way around. Become a person of minimal needs and you will be much more content. From keywebco.com
Memorize something everyday.
Not only will this leave your brain sharp and your memory functioning, you will also have a huge library of quotes to bust out at any moment. Poetry, sayings and philosophies are your best options. see more at keywebco.com
HOW TO WASH YOUR DOG: SIMPLE TIPS & TRICKS
Everybody loves a clean dog. But suggest a bath to yours and they insist they are just fine and dandy skipping it. My dog actually enjoys smelling like the offensive thing he just rolled in. Many dogs resist bath time tooth and nail if they think there is the remotest chance this strategy will let them off the hook.
How often should you undertake the dreaded dog bathing routine? And can you make it any more pleasant for all parties involved, yourself included? We have answers to these questions and more; read on for bath time tips to make the ritual of dog washing as simple and painless as possible. And who knows? You and your dog might even come to enjoy it.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I BATHE MY DOG?
How about now? It's really a matter of personal preference: if you want them smelling freshly scrubbed all the time, once-weekly bathing is probably sufficient. If your dog leads an active lifestyle that includes rolling in unmentionables or taking regular dips in lakes, rivers, and puddles, routine bathing is a necessity. And if your dog has skin allergies or a minor skin infection, a regular bath can help your pet avoid antibiotics. But once-monthly bathing is often enough for most dogs, and manageable for most of us who are willing to undertake the chore of dog washing at home. If nothing else, use the sniff test as the ultimate bathing barometer: when your dog stinks, they need scrubbing.
Why does my dog get so nervous when I go to the groomer or veterinarian?
Does your dog start “vibrating” when you walk into the groomers? Have you ever wondered why they get so nervous? My dog will do the same thing at the Vets office too. Your dog may just be suffering from dog anxiety because he knows that he is about to go through the grooming process.
He may also experience some dog separation anxiety when the owners leave. However, as long as the owner is in sight, the anxiety will most likely remain. Most of the time the dogs are happy and calm within five minutes after the owners have left.
