News jacking means taking news stories and sharing them with your readers while also injecting your own opinions. It’s not really a new technique. People have been sharing news stories for years both online and off. But what’s different about news jacking is that today’s technology allows you to discover what’s trending and share it in real-time, which makes it more effective than ever.
How do you know which stories are the best to share with your readers? One way is to subscribe to several newsletters that relate to your niche. Whenever you see a story that you think your readers would like, share it immediately.
You can also sign up for alerts. Choose relevant keywords and set up alerts so that whenever a new news story is posted that contains those keywords, you’ll know immediately.
Social media offers some good ways to search as well. There are software programs that help you find trending stories on Twitter, which you can then share with you audience.

ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, is the agency that gives out all the domain names. In early 2012, they made a decision that might change the Internet landscape forever. They’re offering new generic top level domains (GTLDs). If you don’t know much about domain names, these are commonly called suffixes. For example, .com, .net, .org, .biz.
Take a minute and think of all the different suffixes that are out there. How many can you think of? If you’re like me, it’s tough to think of more than about 7 or 8. I’ve probably only ever seen about 10 in my life. There are actually 22, but only a few are commonly used.
What ICANN is doing is opening it up so that any word can become a suffix. The possibilities are limitless. You can get GTLDs for popular things like .pizza, .cars, or .cash. You can get ones for ideas like .selfhelp or .spirituality. You can even get your own geographical suffixes like .mississippi or .losangeles.

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I’d uploaded my new Kindle product and was just waiting for it to ‘go live’. Well it has and just to refresh your memories here’s what its all about:
The Diaries of a Serial Property Investor
The Reality of Property Investment and
This book covers our journey through property investing and the buy-to-let market in the UK. I’ll tell you why we started, how we nearly stopped, the highs, lows and absolutely terrible periods but most importantly what we’ve achieved over the last twelve years of our’ adrenaline rush’ journey.
We are not property gurus, this is not a “How To” become a property investor hyped up manual but a “warts and all” diary of our activities that might be interesting for would-be investors.
Ok so what’s all this got to do with internet marketing I hear you ask?
The downside of course is you tend when writing like that to not construct it in the best of English and sometimes it doesn’t make a load of sense. Any way here’s what I learnt from the exercise Read More→
