  1. I'd like to know what's your main area of interest in this forum. Please vote in the poll above. Multiple choices are possible.
  2. Forex trading is all about making big money. Some investors have found it quite easy to make a large amount of money as the forex market changes daily. Forex, is the foreign exchange market. Online and offline you will find references to the forex market as FX as well. Forex trading takes place through a broker or a financial institution often where you are able to purchase other types of stocks, bonds and investments. When you are thinking about getting involved in the forex markets you should know you are sending money to be invested with other countries. This is done to prop up the investments of people involved in certain types of hedge funds, and in the markets overseas. The forex market could have your money invested in one market one day, and the next day your money is invested in another country. The daily changes are determined by your broker or financial institution. When reading your statements and learning more about your account, you will find that every type of currency has three letters that will represent that currency. For example, the United States dollars is USD, the Japanese yen is JPY, and the British pound sterling will read as GBP. You will also find that for every transaction on your account listing you will see information that looks like this: JPYzzz/GBPzzz. This means that you took your Japanese yen money and invested it into something in the British pound market. You will find many transactions from one currency to another if you have money that is scattered through out the forex markets. Forex markets trading by investment management firms are the companies you can trust with your money. You want to find a company that has been dealing with forex trading since the early seventies, and not someone just new on the block so you get the most for your hard earned money. It is important that you beware of companies that are popping up online, and often times from foreign countries that are stating they can get you involved in the forex markets and trading. Read the fine print, and know whom you are dealing with for the best possible protection. If you are interested in trading on the forex market, you will find limits for investing are different from company to company. Often times you will learn that you need a minimum of $250 or $500 while other companies will need $1000 or $10,000. The company you are dealing with will set limits in how much you need to open an account with their company. The scams that are online will tell you, that you only need a $1 or $5 to open an account, but you need to learn more about that company and where they are doing business before investing any money, this is for your own protection while dealing in forex trading and markets online.

  4. Hello, @Phillip . Welcome on Top Gold Forum. How are you?
  5. Hello, @adwordsads . Welcome to Top Gold Forum. How are you?
  6. Before anything else, I'd like to point out that getting a significant amount of bitcoins for free is almost impossible. Don't fall for a faucet, or work for bitcoins scams. Bitcoin mining is also not a solution as the profits are very low right now, considering the huge numbers of miners in the system. How to buy bitcoins safely? You can buy bitcoins either directly from another person or from an online exchange company. Buying bitcoins from individuals If you plan to purchase bitcoins from another person then you should visit LocalBitcoins is a bitcoin startup company based in Helsinki, Finland. Its service facilitates trading of local currency for bitcoins. Users post ads on the website, where they state exchange rates and payment methods for buying or selling bitcoins. Other users reply to these advertisements and agree to meet the person to buy bitcoins with cashor pay with online banking. LocalBitcoins also offers a reputation and feedback mechanism for users and an escrow and conflict-resolution service. Besides the advantages of trading with other peoples from your own town, there are some risks involved. One is that you are responsible for paying the taxes associated and second that you should verify the other trader and do not fall for scams. You should trade only with reputable exchangers with an impeccable business record. Buying bitcoins from exchange companies If you want to be super safe then you should use a reputable bitcoin exchanger. Currently, the most reputable exchanges in US are Circle and Coinbase. Signing up with these exchanges means you will have to follow the relevant regulations, namely the Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations. This means there will be some level of identity verification, typically a scanned government ID and a bill that proves your place of residence. Either exchange, Circle or Coinbase, will link up to your bank account, credit card or both. Once verified, you can then purchase bitcoins. They are usually delivered into your account almost instantly, though it has been known to take a few days if either exchange finds the purchase suspicious or if it is a large amount. Both exchanges will provide you with what is called a web wallet. In the case of these kinds of exchange, they are acting as Bitcoin banks. They will hold your private keys—the unique and randomized set of characters that allows the holder to send bitcoins from a particular wallet—for you, and although you are free to send the bitcoin wherever you like, either exchange could theoretically lock your account. If either exchange goes insolvent, then your bitcoins are likely lost. For those outside the United States, there are plenty other exchange companies. I recommend visiting Exchangers directory and select an exchange company that accepts payments in your local currency. Before trading, you should make sure you read reviews of these exchanges on reputable forums. For example, community has a dedicated section for bitcoin exchangers. How to Keep Bitcoins? If you plan to buy a significant number of bitcoins, you will likely want to move them to someplace more secure than Coinbase and Circle. There are multi-signature web wallets out there that provide a bit more security while still being convenient to users. Coinkite and BitGo are two popular ones that have impeccable security measures. All of the above options are fairly straightforward, other than the offline generation, i.e., generating an encrypted key while not connected to the Internet. In that case, you’ll want to find some BIP32 key generator software. I suggest You generate your key following the instructions, grab the BIP32 extended key and copy it into BitGo. For best security, this last step should be done on a computer other than the one you normally use. Now that you are armed with a multi-signature web wallet and have some control over the private keys, the next step is sending that wallet bitcoins from your Circle or Coinbase wallet. Simply grab the “public key”—the key you are free to give out to the public and that allows people to send you bitcoins—which starts with a 3 and will look something like 3Bi1fhng5LfoDzue5MTfGw9PgHNKKgRkVt. (Your Circle or Coinbase public key, which by default is not multi-signature, will look similar but will start with a 1.) Click “send” or “send bitcoins” in your Coinbase or Circle wallet, and then copy your BitGo, Coinkite, or paper wallet address into the “To:” space and click “send.” From there, you can send or receive bitcoins to any other Bitcoin address while still keeping your bitcoins reasonably secure. This is acceptable for medium-sized amounts of money that you may want to spend but don’t want to quickly turn back into fiat. Recently, Coinbase started its own multi-signature wallet service called the Vault. It is a user-friendly option that allows you to give keys to other people or yourself. BitGo has a few more years of experience—and reputation—in the space, but it is a viable option. You should consider a paper wallet For long-term savings, printing out a “paper wallet” is a good idea. To do this, the software with the best combination of security and usability is, in my opinion, It creates Bitcoin addresses based on random actions you perform in your browser—moving the mouse, typing keys, whatever—then allows you to create an address from that. For a more secure wallet, it is recommended that you download the software itself (a link is provided on the site that lets you do this). After that, simply print out the wallet and use your previously created web wallet to send bitcoins to the public address that was created for your paper wallet using the QR code (or by manually entering the public address). One last option that bears mentioning is what is called a “hardware wallet.” These are wallets created by various companies that allow people to hold and spend bitcoins with minimal connection to the Bitcoin network. How To Spend Bitcoins? If and when you want to cash those bitcoins into fiat, your options will be to either sell them to a person directly for cash or to put it back into Coinbase or Circle and sell it there, where the cash will be put directly into your bank account after a few banking days. A piece of advice: I do not recommend accepting PayPal or any other reversible payment systems especially when trading with people you don't know. These persons can reverse the transactions after receive your bitcoins claiming all kind of reasons like their account was hacked, or their credit card was stolen. As bitcoin is not reversible you will loose both the bitcoins and the cash received. Nowadays many companies accept bitcoin for their goods or services so finding places to spend bitcoins shouldn't be too difficult. Bitcoin merchants and services section on forum list some reputable sellers there. Congratulations. Now you know how to buy, spend and keep bitcoins. Happy trading :)
  7. After recent announcements of Matt Cutts, Head of WebSpam division of Google many webmasters and bloggers are quite unsure of what methods of earning backlinks are still safe now and will not produce latter any harm to their websites.. Even if it may look different, things have not been changed much in the last years and as long as backlinks is going to be the main factor in ranking websites there will be room for abuse. I will share with you several methods I’m using to earn quality backlinks for my sites. 1 Guest Posting Before you ask: No I’m not drunk and I’m not leaving under a rock, I’ve read Matt Cutt’s blog post regarding guest posting. As long as you guest post for reaching new real audiences and not for the solely purpose of getting backlinks, guest posting is still a great way to earn backlinks. Building a strong online presence in your industry is definitely important. Appearing on higher-ranking blogs or websites in your industry through content contribution can help you develop your existence in your industry. Since content is king in digital marketing, contributing comprehensive content for your audience within your industry is a better way to build high quality links that can help your domain authority.

  8. The right software development strategy is a balance of four aspects: costs code quality delivery time control over company’s key competencies. The problem is that in every particular case, several options are available but it is not always clear what to choose: start a project with an in-house team, hire a remote team or find an outsourcing software development partner. The reality is that when software development is not the company’s core business or the company’s own in-house team is overwhelmed with their current tasks, outsourcing is the best option. When choosing the right developers, the companies win in development time and costs for the same code quality. When looking for a reliable development team you can see team available from all over the world with a great variety in price, location, a stack of technologies and experience. On one hand, there are expensive options like the USA, Canada, Australia, and Western Europe. Here you can expect good communication, the same culture, similar time zone, and high professionalism. On the other hand, there are cheap destinations: India, China or the Philippines where you can expect better costs but you can bump into issues like completely different mentality, lack of relevant experience, or problems with communications due to the difference in time zones as well. Therefore, more market study is needed. But when you want a balance between the price and experienced talented programmers (=code quality), you should look for a Ukrainian development company. Here is why: #1 - A wide pool of talents. Ukraine has over 90 000 IT professionals, making it No. 1 in the Eastern Europe. This is possible with a large educational system and high quality of programs in engineering. Most of IT people have at least bachelor degree; many have master’s degree or even Ph.D. #2 - Orientation on the global market. While Ukraine’s own IT market is small, most of Ukrainian IT companies work on the global market. Headquarters and/or business development centers are located in the US, Canada or EU while development teams and support reside in Ukraine. This way, Ukrainian firms offer their customers both optimal business environment and price for the quality of the service. #3 - Competencies Playing globally, Ukrainian IT companies implement best practices in both management and technical solutions to stay competitive. Also, People participate actively communities, meetups, and conferences. Many traveled or travel to the USA and EU upon exchange programs. Ukrainian engineers follow tech trends and invest into education. #4 - Experience. You can find various expertise on the Ukrainian market, starting from custom web development through solutions for business process automation to augmented reality and Internet-of-Things. #5 - The customer is the part of the team. Ukrainian developers care about their reputation but even more, they care about their customers’ success. This is why they reflect on tasks and offer their customers optimal technical implementation of their concepts for their money. If something is important or too expensive to bring profit they will tell it honestly. #6 - Cheap and reliable Internet access. Customers can be sure their project will not get lost because of lost Internet connection. Conclusion For the reasons above Ukraine remains a valuable outsourcing destination. It is best suited for those companies that wish not to spend too much on development, but need competent developers hence, want to buy the best quality for their budget.

  10. Making use of social media is not new these days. However, not all of the business are taking advantage of this to reach their audience. Many are still trying to figure out how social media can work for them to be able to get their bottom lines which are more exposure and eventually, more sales. The usage of Social media advances every day. Instagram is now growing at an astonishing rate. The challenge for companies now is to keep up with these changes in keeping up with their target audience through social media platforms. One of the best ways to use social media is building trust with your potential customers. Trust is important; it makes your audience want to know more about your company or website and what you have to offer. If your audience trusts you, it will ensure that you will have a long lasting relationship with them as customers. To make your audience trust you, you should first create a social media dialogue to start the relationship. How is this to be done? Don't worry; it won't be difficult since social media is not new to you or to your audience. You simply need to use social media for your digital marketing strategy. Digital marketing is the same as the traditional form of marketing. The difference is that the public relations strategies are disseminated through social media and other new channels. Another thing is that social media platforms give companies the opportunity to interact with their customers directly through private messages, comments, likes, and shares. Some of the most popular topics today about digital marketing are Google's continuous algorithm updates to make sure that they provide only the best and relevant contents and search results. What most businesses probably do not yet realize is that Google is not the only search engine out there even if it is among the most popular. Today, even social media platforms have become search engines. So, customers do not only rely on Google and other search engines. Most of the time, they go directly to social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram to look for the content that they need and to learn more about certain products and services. Social media sites are not only limited to the youth; almost everyone has a social media account these days. The demographics are continually expanding. This is something that the companies should not ignore. They now have the chance to come face to face with their potential customers and communicate with them through social media. By engaging with their audience this way, they can now build brand trust, an essential element that ensures good business with their audience. In this article, we are going to share with you some of the expert advice on how to build trust with your audience through social media. We will be sharing five ways on how you can build trust with your audience successfully. Let's start! #1 - Be a Thought Leader A way to lose your potential customers is by bombarding them with your ads without really giving them anything of value. Value can come in many forms. In this case, digital marketing is closely tied up with content marketing. You can give your audience something of value by creating content that can be useful and interesting for them. Social media is a great way to share your content with your audience. Not only do you get the chance to interact with them through comments, your audience can even share them with their friends, and that's an opportunity you should grab. Remember, share only contents that can be informative and useful for your audience. This is how your business can become the thought leader in your industry, and your audience will certainly take notice. #2 - Be Transparent This is probably one part that makes decision makers and executives worry about the most. However, this is something that your business must overcome to be able to attain success through social media. With the state of today's social media, transparency is expected from companies. People talk about your brand online, either good or bad; they will talk about it. What you can do is be transparent and be able to own up if ever you have any lapses with your product or services. Business should be able to keep up with their audiences, and most of their audiences are online, the companies ought to be, too. The customers would more likely think that the company is hip and cool if the CEO has a social media account and is one tweet away. That makes them trust the company, even more, knowing that they make themselves available for anyone. #3 - Communicate Now that your consumers already know that your business and even your CEO has a social media account, they will be eager to communicate with you. They will be talking to you about how good your products and services are. Or they will talk to you about how unsatisfactory they are and that they are disappointed. Don't be afraid to face them. They will appreciate it more if they know that someone from the company or website (e.g., is on the other end and knows about their experience with your brand. Be quick in responding to them. This will make them feel that you value what they have to say and that you immediately take action. #4 - Be Accountable When your company openly engages with your audience in social media, you will encourage your customers to communicate with you more. Doing so also ensures accountability. By being online in social media and being close to the customers, the companies are being held accountable in making sure that they are not only great at engaging with their audience, they can also deliver the best products and services possible. #5 - Be Fun People like being online because it mainly entertains them. For your social media account, you should also know how to have fun and make sure that your audience remains interested in your brand and products. In your contents, be it articles, infographics, or videos, you are not simply giving another boring statistics or information, you have to present them in a fun and interesting way. They will surely appreciate your effort in reaching out and making things enjoyable for them. Takeaway Now you have some notes on how you can build trust with your audience through social media. Make sure that you familiarize them and execute them well. Soon enough, you will get the results that you are looking for and your audience will also look forward to your every post, tweet, and share.

The advice here can also be helpful for those who have tried doing so but were not able to get the results that they expected.

  13. Hello @DaveSylvester / David. Welcome on Top Gold Forum matey.
  14. This is great news. Nice to see that more forex brokers accept Bitcoin as a deposit/withdraw method.
  15. In its most basic form, Search Engine Optimization – SEO means finding way to increase your websites visibility to potential visitors from search engine such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. Each search engine requires different key signal from your site for it to move up the rankings to reach the first page. If you give the search engines these signals you can expect great results. Here are a few tips that will point you in the right direction towards a good foundation for solid rankings 1. Check your current rankings You won’t know if your SEO efforts are working unless you monitor your site rankings. It’s also important to check your referrer log regularly to track where your visitors are coming from and the search terms they’re using to find your site 2. Keywords You should be conscious of placing appropriate keywords throughout every aspect of your site: your titles, content, URLs, and image names. Think about your keywords as search terms — how would someone looking for information on this topic search for it?
  16. So you are getting traffic to your website but you don’t get many sales. Or maybe you’re getting a decent amount of sales but you can improve that if you follow the strategies below without any additional costs. You simply have to optimize what are you doing now. One of my golden rules when comes to converting visitors is that no visitor of your website should leave without giving you a way to interact later. Only a visitor that doesn’t do any of the things below is a lost visitor. Let me explain: 1 Convert your visitors into actual buyers Having as many of your visitors turning into buyers of your products/services is the most desirable way. That’s because plain and simple this is money in the bank. However, the purchasing conversion rate for most of the websites is around 2%-4% of the visitors. If you want to increase the purchase conversion rate you have to do A/B testing for product pages, shopping cart, improve your headlines and content. Also, you should generate trust by adding an SSL certificate if you don’t have one yet, post user reviews and add a money back guarantee etc. Read more: Follow us: @monetizeinfo on Twitter | monetize on Facebook
