inBrokerage.com - Just Another Scammer

In our attempt to keep our clients aware of some of the scammer operations currently making the rounds on the Internet, we have one more for you to avoid. We've been getting a lot of e-mails from Sarah Von (see below) and she has some unbelievable deals for us. The problem with this scam is we know to check the domain before sending her $199. Each time we check the "super deal" we find out the domain has never been registered before but is available for our regular registration fee.

This is just one more reason why we put our company's name on the domains we manage for our clients. By having our name on the domain as the Administrative Contact, we can keep an eye on fraudulent e-mails like the sample below.

Old Article Worth Seeing Again

TagCrowd

TagCrowd is a Web application for visualizing word frequencies in any user-supplied text by creating what is popularly known as a tag cloud or text cloud. You may have seen one of these tag clouds before on someone's blog. By using TagCrowd one not only sees a text cloud, but also an image that communicates much in a single glance.

We suggest loading your site's homepage and then, while holding down the left mouse button, dragging your cursor down the verbiage on your homepage to highlight it. Then place your cursor over some of the highlighted text and right-click. From the menu that shows up, left-click on COPY.

Go to TagCrowd and place your cursor in the large "Paste text to be visualized" rectangle and right-click. From the menu select PASTE which should paste the verbiage from your homepage into TagCrowd. Now click the VISUALIZE button and have a tab cloud generated.
If the theme of your site is not evident, it probably won't be evident to Herr Google either and you may want to consider talking with us about editing the verbiage on your site in order to get a higher ranking on the major search engines.
