Search Engine Optimization-Write Good Articles

This is the fifth lesson we are going to learn about Search Engine Optimization and we are almost reaching the end of learning the basics of Search Engine Optimization. In this topic we will discuss about our most important point, Good Articles. And this is the last topic in this learning process.

You may be thinking of the importance of Good Articles in Search Engine Optimization. I will tell you why Blogs should look upon articles to optimize their Blog for search engines. In today’s online marketing world, articles have a great important role to play. It is treated as soul of the Blog or website, let it be about any niche.

Posting a good article can have serious impact on your Blog traffic and on your Search Engine rank. How? Posting good articles will increase the chance of others linking to your Blog. So what do you think about posting good articles. I recommend you to write good contents that suits your niche. Remember that your blog posts should not be a duplicate as this will have bad effects on your SEO carrier.

Daniel Scocco, founder of Daily Blog Tips, wrote in one of his post that

“A bad post is worse than no post at all, because it might damage the image of your blog and make you lose readers.”

So apart from writing a lot of Blog Post you have to look seriously into the quality of topics you would like to write. You do also have to look for the topic that a reader might like to link. You can use Google AdWords Tool to help you find good topics in your niche that world had searched. This will also help you in finding the Keywords.

The important thing you have to make sure while writing posts is that it is useful for people searching in your niche and most importantly it is original. Try to include some supportive facts and references and use bulletin list wherever it is possible. Give some useful Links in your Blog Post to help readers. Another important thing to include in Posts is ‘Research’ details including their results.

With this we have reached the end of learning basic SEO tips. Now you can practice these topics in your Blog. If you have any questions or doubts regarding these five lessons, just give me a comment. I will look into the matter. Please feel free to comment on this topic. You can even criticize about this post. All your suggestions are accepted with extreme happiness.

Search Engine Optimization-What are your competitors doing?

This is the forth topic in this serious of Search Engine Optimization. When you look into the title you may feel a bit interested to know what it is. The questions that will rise when you read this article will be many. I have tried to solve as many questions that I got in mind.

It is very important to know your competitors. Who are your competitors? Don’t know who all your competitors are. They are the Blogs that work in your same niche and are well above you in readers as well as Page rank. Knowing your competitors is one of the top three SEO tips I have to provide to you.

Knowing your competitors mainly include these few things. First of all know how many links your competitors have and this will give you a better idea of why they are ranked high by Search Engine’s. Another main thing you have to do is to analyze the source of their traffic. This will help you to understand which category of people is reading your competitors posts. Try to drive all these people to your Blog.

Another thing you have to note about your competitor is the quality of Backlinks that Blog is getting. Links from a highly authorized Blog will help you to get a good rank. Don’t get afraid by seeing the number of links your competitors are getting. It is good to have a competitor with so much incoming links. This will help you to wish more.

The third is about the Keywords used in the title of linking pages. We have already discussed about Keywords and their importance in Search Engine Optimization. Use most appropriate title for your Blog Posts but don’t forget to include the Keywords you found from your competitors. Sometimes you have to imitate them. But using it many times will backfire.

Getting links from one website is not enough for acquiring good page rank. Popularity of the site linking has double effect on Search Engine Optimization. For example, if your Blog is about Blogging, getting links from ProBlogger- a Blogging maniac on Blogging will boost your Blog’s rank. There are many others in this field but ProBlogger is my ideal.

Thus we are concluding our forth topic on Search Engine Optimization. I hope that all of my readers have enjoyed these four topics and the next one will be about Blog Contents. Please feel free to comment on this topic. You can even criticize about this post. All your suggestions are accepted with extreme happiness.

Search Engine Optimization-Page Optimization

This is the third straight topic under the category ‘Tips on Search Engine optimization’. In the last two topics we discussed about Backlinks and on Keywords. In this post we will discuss about Page Optimization. Now it is time to learn more about optimizing your webpage’s.

Optimizing Page means providing a ‘Meta tag’ for your webpage’s. Meta tags will help Search Engines to find the title of the webpage and the contents contained in it. Meta tags are nothing but few HTML statements. We have already dealt about Meta tags and you can view it for creating a Meta tag or for just knowing what it actually is.

Every new blogger thinks that it is just enough to give Meta tags for your homepage. This is a wrong concept. As far as I am considered giving Meta tags for every post on the blog is a good thing to do for Search Engine Optimization. I know that this will disappoint you and it is a real loss of time. I have seen serious comments on different blogs about giving Meta tags for each single post. It disappointed lot of them as they have hundreds of articles and it will be very, very painful to give Meta tags for all of them.

If you are not able to provide Meta tags for all of them try at least to give it to most important posts in your blog. Meta tags consists mainly of three parts: TITLE- title of the post or the webpage, DESCRIPTION- a short description about the contents of the post or about your blog, and Keywords- this is a short list of keywords contained in your post. There is not much difference between Meta tags for Homepage and for posts. There can be more contents in the Meta tag section of your HTML.

To get good Pagerank you have to make sure that your Title and Description tags are apt to the topic of your Blog. In the description section for posts, insert some sentences from that post. Limit your description section to about 150 or 160 words. This is better. Keywords section should contain the most important Keywords in the post.

Do you want to know what is Meta tag and wants to create one for your blog? Click ‘Meta Tag for blogs and posts.’ There are thousands of other sites on the web that provide Meta tag generation services. Scrubtheweb.com is one such site that works on SEO and related services.

Now you have finished with the third step in optimizing your Blog for Search Engine. The next topic is about Knowing about your Competitors. I hope that you understand what Meta tag is and their importance in Search Engine Optimization.

Please feel free to comment on this topic. You can even criticize about this post. All your suggestions are accepted with extreme happiness.

Meta Tag for Blogs and Posts

Meta tags are a piece of HTML code that will determine how a webpage is indexed in Search Engines. Their importance in Search Engine Optimization has been discussed here. Many bloggers have a feeling that Meta tags are only for mainpage. This is a wrong concept, you can have Meta tags for each posts on your site. I will show you how to create a Meta tag by your own.

Meta tags for Mainpage or Blog
You have to change the necessary fields with your answers.


Where should I place the Meta tag for Blog?


Place this Meta tag just under the section.

Meta tags for Posts


Change the necessary fields with your answers.

Where should I place the Meta tag for Posts?

Place this Meta tag under the section and before the Meta tag for your Blog. Each new Meta tag for posts should be placed under the section in such a way that the newest Meta tag appears next to the section.

Create one by your own. Please feel free to comment on this topic. You can even criticize about this post. All your suggestions are accepted with extreme happiness.

Search Engine Optimization-Keyword Research and its need

We have already discussed about Search Engine Optimization and its most important point. Now the second thing you have to take into action while optimizing your Blog or website. What is it? I will tell you. This is as important as getting Backlinks. I am not going to make you more impatient. It is Keyword Research.

Don’t laugh at hearing these two simple words. It can cause enough damage to your Blogging future if you don’t look into it more seriously. If you do it wisely your Blog will grow in a short period of time. Why I choose this topic as important. It is only because of my experience.

Most of the beginners ignore the simple process called “Keyword Research” and that is good enough answer for why they fail in their Blogging carrier. Now let’s get in to the business. What is this Keyword Research? It is just acquiring the knowledge of the words that people around the world search. For example, think that you wrote an article about “20 Tips for Beginner Bloggers”. But the people from around the world won’t type this much in Search Engines. They will sometimes only go for ‘Tips on Blogging’. This is Keyword.

If you change your heading to ‘Tips on Blogging’ chances for getting more traffic is high. So I think now you understand what Keyword is and its importance in Blogging. Now the main question is how you would find about the Keywords. Here is the word ‘Research’ will come up. You have to spend some time in finding the Keywords that will suit your niche.

There are thousands of company’s to offer you the Keyword Research tool. There are free services as well as paid services. I recommend you to use the Google AdWords Keyword Tool. They offer you a free service and will help you to build a better Blog. Keyword Research Tool will also help you to know the traffic volumes that searched using particular keywords. This will help you to choose the best keyword for your topic.

But there is an important factor you have to take into consideration. Don’t try to include too much Keyword on your Blog topics. Because Search Engine giants like Google will think that the Blog is working for Search Engines and not for readers. So, blog for readers and not for Search Engines.

The next topic on Search Engine Optimization is about Page Optimization. Try to read all the topics under this Basic Tips on Search Engine Optimization. Please feel free to comment on this topic. You can even criticize about this post. All your suggestions are accepted with extreme happiness.

Search Engine Optimization-Backlinks and its Importance

It is quiet interesting to answer about this topic. Do you know how to optimize your Blog for Search Engines? Most probably you may not know what it is. There are lots of articles on internet about how to optimize your website for search engines. Google is the main Search Engine that every new blogger or webmaster looks at. Don’t feel bad, it is not as easy as you thought. It requires time as well as hard working.

Here I will provide some key tips to optimize your Blog to Search engines. The main key is to find ways to get others to link to your site. It is not simple as I wrote here; you have to spend some time in getting backlinks to your site. We have already discussed on what Backlinks is.

ProBlogger said in his one blog post that he receives mails from many people asking links to their Blogs. So I hope that you understand one way of getting links. Ask to the active and well established Bloggers for links to your site. He also said that 99 percent of these mails go to his ‘Trash’ Box. Why does this happen? The answer is simple, it is not because he doesn’t have time to respond or not like that. It is only because of your Blog content. Write quality contents and surely one day or other day he will link you.

Don’t feel like that ProBlogger will link to every request he receives. You have to get links from sites that work well with your niche. For example, if you write about movies a blog with contents related to blogging cannot link to it. They can link to you but it does not help in Search Engine Optimization.
The first and important fact you have to take into consideration is that ask for links. Sent email requests to active bloggers in your niche. Don’t just try to spam them it will have some serious negative impact on them. Request to them and be in the point. Just specify what you want and a URL of yours. You can include the URL as signature. This will help in getting a good reputation about our blog.

You can include a maximum of up to 10 links in your blog posts. More than that will only backfire at you when it comes to the matter of search engine optimization and Google will seriously not such activities. Provide links in your site such that it is to help readers in finding related articles and by hiding the fact that it is for getting Backlinks.

In the next tip we will share some ideas about Keywords and its importance in Search Engine Optimization. Here is two links if you want to know more about this topic.

Please feel free to comment on this topic. You can even criticize about this post. All your suggestions are accepted with extreme happiness.

Backlinks are the links to your website from other Websites. Its amount is considered to be an important factor in the Search Engine Optimization. The number of Backlinks will determine the popularity or importance of that website or webpage. Backlinks are also known as incoming links, inbound links, inlinks and inward links.

Nowadays, Search Engines uses the number of Backlinks that a website has as one of the most important factors for determining that website’s search engine ranking. You can employ different methods to increase the number of Backlinks to your website. SEO is one of the most commonly used techniques.

How to start a Blog

Blog generally means Weblog. A blog is used by people to share their reviews and suggestions on particular topics. When my friends get to know that I started a blog they all asked me how to start a blog. I found this question very awkward. It is very easy to setup a blog. But when I thought deeply, I found that this question can bring lot traffic to my blog. Many don’t know how to start a blog. I will help you to solve this problem.
  • There are several options available for starting a blog. I use Blogger because I don’t want to spend my money in just something to spend my time. There are other options like Typepad and Wordpress. If you wish to start a professional blog spent some money to start a blog. Blogger and Wordpress are free to join.
  • I recommend you to register your own domain. This will increase your chances in getting noted by people around the world. Normally, people have a feeling that a free blog is not good. So go for your own domain. It will only take some few dollars. Select a domain name that suits your blog topics. Make it small so that the people remember your domain name.
  • After selecting a domain name choose a good template for your blog. Your theme should be simple and meaningful. Meaningful means that it should convey a message to your readers about your blog and its contents. If you are starting a photo blog you can give some snapshot in your templates.
  • After selecting a template you have to start up posting contents. To this you need to find an interesting topic. I have already posted different articles on writing blog posts, creating good contents and many tips for writing posts. You can refer these posts if you want. Write about the interests in you and not what you think you readers want.
  • After posting articles you need readers for your blog. Bring in more traffic by commenting on other blogs and linking some blogs. If you link a blog they will also try to do back. This is good for getting good page ranks and back links. Join blog directories and get noted by other bloggers. Increase the chances of getting links to your site.
  • Ask people to comment on your blog. Comments will also increase your blog status and will satisfy many people. At least they will have a feeling that the post is read by many. And moreover ask them to subscribe to your blog.

If you have done all these steps correctly you are done with a blog and can get enough traffic. There are many other topics you may want to read about blogging and blogging ideas. You can find it under the label Blogging. Look for it.

How to generate revenue from Blog

Can a person earn some real money from blog? Do you think the same? Do you want to know the answer? Come with me I will guide you towards the answers. And the answer in single word is ‘yes’. Oh, I know you are anxious too know how.

As you know millions of people from around the world are running blogs on different categories of topics. Most of them thinks that blogs i.e. Weblogs are purely personal. Now there arouse a question of whether blogs can be used as a source of revenue. Revenue, the people here means both part time earnings and full time earnings. There are few people who take the risks to drop their full time jobs and get engaged with blogging. Many like Darren Rowse have already turned this aspect into a great success.

Do you want to know how they earn money from blog? I will show you the way bloggers are going earning money from their blogs.

Adsense – Google Adsense have turned out to be the primary source of revenue for most of the bloggers. Adsense is a program based on publishing ads on webpage. Google pays people who run their ads, per click on the ads. The payments vary depending on the ads published. You just have to get their sanction to participate in this program. Of course, you need good traffic to earn some real money from it. You may not be able to become a millionaire using this program. You can get to know more about Adsense program from my archives page.

Affiliate programs – Affiliate programs are other source of revenue for most of the bloggers. There are thousands of affiliate program currently working for you. You can just sign up and start working with it. Amazon is one such types of program. You can place some links or images on certain products and when someone buys the articles through your links, you will get paid a little commission. This program is good but not good to bring millions of dollars. If worked well, you will get at least enough money to spare for blogging needs.

There are more other ways for earning money from blogs. The list is endless, even I have written about this topic a few times with different contents. You can search for it in my archives. According to me, Blogging have the potential to earn money. But it completely depends on your blog and a little bit fortune. There are hundreds of thousands working in this field but only a few made successes with it.

As far I noticed, businesses are growing and online marketing have turned out to be the last word in the marketing. As it sounds, it had brought great success to these companies as well. Increase in the companies coming towards online marketing will make it good for bloggers like me. So there is a great scope in the blogging field in the coming years. I hope that the millionaires will turn to be billionaires in the near future. But there is a danger. What is it? Nowadays everyone with an internet connection wants to blog. This will surely make blogging field over crowded. So joining this field earlier is better.

I am concluding with the hope that you understood the ways bloggers earn money. I am interested in knowing what you people think about this. Please feel free to critique or add t this posts in comments. Your opinions will grow me up in this huge field of blogging.

Importance Of Selecting Good Topics

Have you ever thought of selecting a topic for your blog. If not, you have to think. Don’t just write whatever you want. For bloggers, it is important to choose the right topic. Right topic is not enough; you should have some interest in writing it. You should know something about the topic. Do you think that you can’t get enough traffic by posting unwanted topics? No not at all. You can get but it is difficult to get. So go for good articles that will help you get traffic directly from the search engine.

You have to select a topic and do some research in it. You have to select a topic that you find interesting. It is sure that you are going to enjoy the research aspect of the niche you have chosen. If you posts about something that you are knowledgeable and write simply something that come in your mind, it is surely not going to be worthy. Even it looks boring and your readers won’t give their time in reading some boring thing. Readers are important for you. Don’t forget this.

Selecting a good topic that you are interested will even enjoy you as you don’t have to spend much time knowing what actually it is. Go for a topic that is not given much attention but needed by readers. For example, if you select “Blogging” topics you will take a lot time to get into search engines as there are hundreds of thousands of blogs on Blogging. Rather if you go for topics on “Health” or something like this, you will get success in short time.

Select a nice topic that you are interested. After that search for blogs or sites that work with similar topics and find the keywords used by them. It is important to use keywords in your blog posts. I recommend you to read the user comments in these blogs because it will show you what the readers want from the blog. Most of these bloggers don’t look in to the comments. If you are able to sort out the problems, success will come towards you rather than you going towards it.

Research is important for every topic. Find out what other competitors are doing, the products they are promoting, and see if you can find something that they can’t find. Get focused in an area. It is easy to expand out a bit from there. Participate in user forums and get to know what others want. It will help you with your ideas. Try to do your keyword research because it will get you good traffic from the search engines. Keyword research is not enough to get traffic analyze what other bloggers are doing.

I hope that you got the importance of selecting a good topic for your blog. I forgot to say a phrase that I use in my most of the posts on blog: “Many Blog with single topic is much better than a Blog with Many Topics”. Start different blogs for different topics. It will only increase your burden so go for a good single topic.

Twitter-Its importance in Blogging

Twitter is well known to you like any other bloggers in the world. Twitter to bloggers is not just a social networking site but a traffic generator. How? Is this the question haunting in your mind? Don’t worry I will show you how Twitter and blogging is linked with other.

Twitter is a social networking site like Facebook and Orkut. Sorry, there are more but I wrote only the top ones. What Twitter actually does is that it connects billions of people together. This is same that other social networking sites do. But the difference is that no other social networking sites were able to give traffic to a site as Twitter does. Twitter is mainly used by bloggers and most of the bloggers go for Twitter.

In Twitter friends are called as followers. You can follow any person and anyone can follow you too. The important thing I noticed about Twitter is that they don’t need to confirm the request. This is good for bloggers because we won’t have to waste our time by clicking these confirmations. It is truly a blogger friendly networking site. Now Twitter has grown like that a “Follow me Button” is common in every blogs. Twitter is lot more than traffic itself. This information’s can be taken from ProBlogger. I will show you the importance of Twitter in bringing traffic to a site.

Twitter brings a lot of traffic to a site by linking your tweets to thousands of your followers. What is a ‘tweet’? Tweet is the posts you give in Twitter. There is some disadvantage to tweets as they can only contain 140 characters. This has turned out to be even a controversy. We could nothing do but hope that the authorities will increase it. Have you heard of Problogger? It is a site with thousands of articles and is mostly referred by bloggers. He has around hundred thousands of followers. Can you guess what much traffic he gets in a day? If you have that much followers under your belt, there is a chance of getting lot traffic from they itself.

Now I hope that you understand the importance of Twitter in Blogging. I was not aware of this fact about Twitter. But now I too have a Twitter account and increasing my followers. I hope that I will reach a ten thousand mark in few months.

Ways To Make Your Blog Attractive

Blog’s design is important to drive good traffic. A good blog design is rare to find. It should suit your topic as well as your business. A good design is not enough to attract people. You have to look up on various other factors to make your readers look for more. Here are some facts you have to take into consideration to make your blog attractive.

Header

Header is the title of the blog. You have to make it attractive as far as possible. You can include images to make it identical and look attractive. While including images make sure that it suits your blog and blog topics. Make the header font to the highest level and provide an identical color. Don’t try to mix colors; this will only make it less attractive.

Description

Most of the beginners write too much as description. It is not at all necessary to write around 100 or 150 words. A maximum of twenty words is well enough to be shown at the header region. You can add hundreds of words in your Meta tag so that search engines would find it. Make its font way smaller than the title. Its color can be selected depending on the template but it is good to use white or black color for description.

Menu

Menu bar for a blog is good for blog’s reputation and will also help your readers. Place a menu bar just below or above the header. Menu bar should contain important links to your site. Add a home page and About Us link on the menu bar. You can find detailed information on Menu bar in a later post.

Ads

Ads are important for bloggers as well as readers. Ads should be placed at corresponding places to make your blog look attractive as well as to get clicks. You can place your Ads at top of the header; between, above and below posts contents; sidebar and as well as in the page footer. But placing Ads at some of the places given above in some templates won’t look much good, so place Ads at positions that suit your blog templates.

Sidebar

Sidebar is the place where your widgets are placed. Make its size compact and don’t add too many widgets on it. Add the widgets that are very important for your readers like subscription links, search box, post labels. If you place Ads in your sidebar try to place it on the top of the sidebar; it looks great.

Post

This is the place where the blog post goes. Chose an attractive font for your blog post. Most bloggers go for the default font as it looks great and are eye-catching. Go for white or black color for your blog posts. Use bulletin lists wherever it is necessary and don’t forget to use bold or italic characters wherever it is required.

By this I hope that you will change your blog template from what it currently is and will make it more attractive. These are just few points in improving your blog design. Remember that blog design will always increase your blog traffic. Feel free to comment on this topic as well as any topic.

How to Keep a Blog Post Beautiful

Keeping a blog post beautiful is not an easy task and should be looked into as a serious matter and most bloggers do their best to do it. Nowadays blogging is turning out to be a business. So you have to be up to date with your posts and provide good articles to stay in the hunt with the other bloggers. Here are some tips to keep a blog post beautiful.

Select Your Blog Topics Wisely

Blog topics should be chosen wisely so that you will get noticed in the huge crowd. Go at the rate of one topic per blog. Many blogs with single topics is better than a blog with many topics. Do some research with your topics so that you can provide enough information about the topic. Go for a topic that was not given much attention by bloggers but readers mind reading.

Don’t Repeat Topics

I got a report that many new bloggers try to repeat their blog topics. This is not good for a growing blog. It will only make your readers bored and will result in losing them. It’s good to update old topics but don’t try to repeat a topic as it will turn your readers to search for other sites.

Appearance of Blog Posts

Appearance of a blog is as important as finding a good article to write. So give serious attention to your posts appearance. Including pictures, graphs etc that will help the readers to understand the topic are a good blogging strategy. At the same time remember that too much of them will disturb the readers. Publish eye-catching posts by giving suitable fonts, size and color.

Keep It Simple And Small

Try to write in a simple manner so that even a second grade student can understand your topics and ideas. Don’t write too much on a single topic and waste your time. Try to limit your blog contents up to 300 words or so. But remember that these 300 words should contain enough information.

Praise The Comments

If you follow the above given steps you will surely receive comments from your readers. Give responses to the comments and be friendly with the readers so that they will come back for more. Don’t get fed up with the negative comments. Accept their comments and sort them out.

I hope that you got an idea of how a post should be written. I have already written a post on tips for writing blog posts. You can view that post if you find the above given information I not enough.

How to add fractions- with different or same denominators

A fraction is a number expressed in the form of p/q where q is not equal to zero. For example 2/3 is said to be a fraction. Fraction consists of two parts called Numerator and Denominator. In this example, 2 is the numerator and 3 is the denominator. So denominator is the number showing the parts into which something is divided and the number showing the parts we take out of the total part is called numerator. The number written above the bar line is numerator and written below is the denominator.

Fractions are mainly of two types- like and unlike fractions. Like fractions are fractions with same denominator. Unlike fractions are the fractions with different denominators. I will show you how to add like as well as unlike fractions.

Like Fractions
  • Like fractions have same denominators so it is easy to add like fractions. Here is an example. Consider two fractions with same denominators. Let the numbers be 2/3 and 4/3.
  • 3 is the denominator. Add the top two numbers, then we will get the top part as 6 (i.e. 4+2). Now write the denominator 3. Thus the sum of fractions 2/3 and 4/3 is equal to 6/3.
  • The next step is simplifying the fraction. Always remember that fraction is written in the simplest form. Thus the final answer is 2 (as 6 divided by 3 is 2).
  • The simplest equation for adding ‘n’ number of like fraction is (numerator1 + numerator2+ ….numerator n)/denominator. Here, n is the last no.

Unlike Fractions
  • In the case of unlike fractions the denominators are different. So we have to equalize the denominators.
  • Consider two fractions 3/2 and 5/4. The denominators are different in this case so we have to make it equal.
  • First decide what number should be multiplied with the denominator of first fraction to equalize with the denominator of second fraction.
  • Remember that when the denominator is multiplied, the numerator too have to be multiplied with the same number.
  • In this case denominator has to be multiplied with 2. Considering the above point numerator also has to be multiplied with 2.
  • The first fraction becomes 6/4 and the second fraction is 5/4.
  • Now the denominators are same, the fractions have become like.
  • Follow the same procedures given above for addition of like fractions.

IPL 2010 Mumbai Indians vs. Kings XI Punjab (Match 41) result

Kings XI Punjab won the 41st match of the IPL 2010 by defeating Mumbai Indians by six wickets. This is just the third loss for Mumbai Indians and only the third win for Kings XI Punjab in this edition of IPL. Mumbai did not show what they had done so far. They proved that Sachin is their key player and once he got out their batting line just collapsed. Kumar Sangakkara was declared as the Man of the Match for his brilliant batting performance and captaincy.

After winning the toss Mumbai opted to bat first. They didn’t have the start they really thought. Shikhar Dhawan fell to Irfan Pathan on the first over of the match. Ambatti Rayudu was promoted up to the third position and hit the ball around the park without any fear. He scored a quick 33 off just 18 balls. Sachin was slow at other end. Sangakkara brought Piyush Chawla at the right time and he dismissed good looking Ambatti Rayudu in his first over. Piyush Chawla again brought some spirit to the Kings XI when he dismissed Sachin. Sachin scored 29 runs off 25 deliveries. Apart from these two players and Duminy no one really contributed to the scoring. They lost wickets at regular intervals and only managed to score 154 in their 20 overs.

Kings XI Punjab thought it is not a big target to achieve. They started well as their openers Bharath and Jayawardene added 41 for the first wicket in just 4.1 overs. Jayawardene scored a blistering 31 off just 18 deliveries and hit seven boundaries in this innings. Bharath on the other end was also positive as he scored 33 off 27 deliveries. Yuvraj Singh again disappointed Kings XI Punjab. He scored 15 off 21 deliveries. Sangakkara on the other hand was on full confident of winning the match. He scored 56 off 42 deliveries. This innings contained six boundaries and one six. On his wickets Irfan Pathan and Sodhi guided Kings XI Punjab to another win. They reached the target with four deliveries remaining in the match.

• Mumbai Indians- 154/9 in 20 overs.
• Kings XI Punjab- 158/4 in 19.2 overs.
• Kings XI Punjab won the match by six wickets.

How to find area of a triangle

Triangle is a plane figure bounded by three straight lines. A triangle may have three sides unequal, two sides equal and all sides equal. The triangles with all sides unequal are called scalene triangles; the triangles with two sides equal are called isosceles triangles and the triangle with three sides equal is called as equilateral triangles. The area of any triangle is equal to half of the base and altitude (A = (base * height)/2). The area of an equilateral triangle, A= ((sqrt 3)/4) * square of side. The area of scalene triangle, A= sqr.rt. (s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)). An example is shown below for each type of triangles.

For Equilateral Triangles
  • Consider an equilateral triangle of side 3 cm.

Area= ((sqrt 3)/4) * sq. of side.
Area= (1.732/4) * 9
Area= 3.897 sq.cm.

For Isosceles Triangle
  • Consider an isosceles triangle of side AB=2 cm, BC=2 cm, AC=4 cm. Let ‘AB’ be base (b) and ‘BC’ be height (h).

Area= (base * height)/2
Area= (2 * 2)/2
Area= 2 sq.cm.

For Scalene Triangles
  • Consider a scalene triangle of side AB=2 cm (a), BC=3 cm (b), AC=4 cm (c).

S= (a+b+c)/2
Area= sqrt (s (s-a) (s-b) (s-c))
Area= sqrt (4.5 (4.5-2) (4.5-3) (4.5-4))
Area= sqrt (4.5 * 2.5 * 1.5* 0.5)
Area= 2.904 sq.cm.

I hope that you understand how to calculate the area of any type of triangles. Please express your opinions.

How to find circumference of a circle

Circumference of circle is the perimeter of the circle. Circumference of a circle can be calculated by the formula, C= 2 * pie * radius. Here pie is a constant whose value is numerically equal to (22/7). This formula can be derived from the formula of Area of a circle. Circumference of a circle can also be calculated using the formula, C= (4 * Area of circle)/diameter of the circle. I will help you find circumference of a circle with an example.
  • Consider a circle of radius 10 cm and area of 314 sq.cm.
By using the first equation,
C= 2 * pie * r.
After substituting the values we will get C= 2 * (22/7) * 10 and the final answer is 62.8 cm.

By using the second equation,
C= (4 * Area of circle)/diameter
After substituting the values,
C= (4 * 314)/20 = 62.8 cm.

Thus we found out the value of circumference of the circle using area as well as using the radius of the circle.

How to find area of a circle

The circle is a plane curve all points of which are equidistant from a point in the plane called the center. The area of a circle is equal to the product of the circumference and the diameter divided by 4. Diameter is equal to twice that of radius. So area of a circle can be calculated by the equation, Area= pie * square of the radius. The value of pie=22/7. I will show you how to find the area of a circle using an example.
  • Consider a circle of radius 10 cm and circumference of 62.8cm.
  • Substitute the values in any of the two equations, A= (Cd)/4 or A= pie * square of radius. 
NOTE: Here, A is the area of circle, C is the circumference of the circle, d is the diameter of the circle and pie= 22/7.
By substituting values in first equation, 
   A= (62.8*2*10)/4.
   Thus Area of the circle of radius 10 cm and circumference of 62.8 cm is 314 sq.cm.

By substituting values in second equation,
   A= pie * sq.radius.
   A= (22/7) * 100. Thus area of circle is 314 sq.cm.

Thus you can find the area of a circle if the diameter and circumference or radius is known.

How to find IP address

IP means Internet Protocol. It is used for communicating data across a packet switched internetwork. Each network has a unique IP address. Sometimes a user may want to know his IP address. But most of them don’t know how to know your IP address. I will show you how to find your IP address. IP address is a ten digit number separated by dots. IP address somewhat looks like this-123.45.67.890
  • Open Command Prompt.
  • The default drive shown will be the drive in which operating system is installed.
  • If you have installed operating system on C drive and the user name is “kkk”, the first command in the command prompt looks like this-                                                                                                     “c:\Documents and Settings\kkk>”
  • Type “ipconfig” after these statements and press Enter key.
  • Now you will get your IP configuration settings. This includes IP address, Subnet mask and Default getaway.
  • The number shown to the side of label “IP address” is your IP address.

I hope that you got your IP address.

Acid Rain

Any precipitation having a pH lower than 5.6 is called as acid rain. It can be rain, snow or sleet. Acid rain is formed mainly due to the burning of fossil fuels and the resultant release of release of oxides of sulfur and nitrogen in to the atmosphere. These oxides dissolve in atmospheric moisture and are precipitated as acid rain. Normal, unpolluted rain has a pH of 5.65. So acid rain is defined as a rain of pH less than 5.65. As it includes snow, fog as well as rain, it is sometimes called acid precipitation.

Acid rain is formed from both natural and man-made sources. Main source of acid rain is the emission resulting from the combustion of fossil fuels. Mainly oxides of nitrogen and sulfur are produced from the burning of fossil fuels and these gases in the presence of atmospheric moisture turns in to nitric acid and sulfuric acid. Carbonic acid is another content of acid rain. Acid rain can also occur from natural sources such as volcanoes, forest fires etc. Mainly acid rain occurs due to human activities.

Effects of acid rain is much serious than thought by humans. It can cause death to aquatic organisms and even to plants. Different region have different capacity to deal with acid rain. If lakes and rivers are acidified, aquatic organisms may not be able to survive and can even result in the mass death. Acid rain will produce corrosion to marbles and other building material. An acid rain can even burn a whole tree. So the effects will be much serious if an acid rain is so strong in its acid concentration.

There is currently no easy solution to this problem. Only long term controlled use of fossil fuels can put an end to this environmental issue. If the current use of fossil fuels continues, the acid content in the acid rain will become stronger than it is. To prevent this conservation is needed. Natural sources contribute much less to the acid rain than human activities. So there should be a regulation in the use of fossil fuels.
