Digital marketing is indeed something to be excited about as it’s instant, relatively easy and when it comes to advertising it’s really cost-effective. However, many businesses are still struggling to achieve digital marketing and social media success and in the process are spending way too much money on their ads from irrelevant traffic.

What is cost per click?

Paid advertising on the internet has become a must for business and is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ element of marketing. With billions of people active on the world wide web every day, your business is quite a simply destined to fail if you don’t use pay-per-click advertising.

So, what does the ‘cost’ for pay-per-click advertising all boil down to?

Well, it’s quite simple. Basically, the cost is calculated every time someone clicks on your ad and this is the price you pay to Google for hosting your ad. Make sure you have a good understanding of how this cost is calculated through Google’s bidding strategy to get the most out of your pay-per-click advertising.

But don’t let its simplicity fool you as costs can very quickly spiral out of control if your pay-per-click advertising isn’t adequately monitored and analysed regularly.

Do you know who is clicking on your ads?

It’s imperative to protect your ad spend from irrelevant traffic as your ad could receive clicks from your competitors, unrelated searches or even bot traffic. This is absolutely what you don’t want to happen, as this type of scenario can easily send your pay-per-click budget through the roof.

Let’s take a look at some of these tips to apply to your digital marketing ads and pay-per-click advertising.

  • Low bid keywords – It’s really effective to target keywords that have low bids as these keywords will have a lower cost attached to them. Certain keywords carry a higher cost as they are associated with an extremely competitive industry.
  • Use long tail keywords – Long tail keywords tend to have a lower search rate and they’re much more effective than single keywords as the search engines can clearly identify them.
  • Negative keywords can be positive – Believe it or not negative keywords can have a really positive affect on the cost of your pay-per-click advertising. They work by preventing your ads from showing up in irrelevant searches.
  • Quality over quantity – Rather focus on quality of clicks than quantity. This is a good way to make sure your ad receives clicks from users who are genuinely interested in your product or service.
  • Schedule your ads – This is a great PPC ad feature that shouldn’t be overlooked as displaying your ads around the clock can be a costly affair.

Bangladesh over the years show that the state has failed in its duty to protect minorities

If humanity is hurt, God is hurt.

Religion without compassion might give way to hatred. Compassion with a "self-interest" motive is completely irreligious. But of late, some of the religions have departed from those basic human values. Love and compassion are for only those who follow their "specific" faith. Very sadly, the religions are up as trading commodities in the world of proselytization. Better preachers attract more followers. Of course, no issue if they are not vying for their religious "supremacy". But the ground reality is utterly different. The claim for exclusive supremacy has become the first commandment --- a real bone of contention among the existing religions. In the name of religion, we have polluted our minds. we have corrupted our souls. We have also gone so much astray that God must have now shut his gateway to heaven!

Milky Way galaxy as seen from Chitkul Valley

NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has for the first time spotted signs of a planet transiting a star outside of the Milky Way galaxy, opening up a new avenue to search for exoplanets at greater distances than ever before.

The possible exoplanet -- or planets outside of our Solar System -- candidate is located in the spiral galaxy Messier 51 (M51), also called the Whirlpool Galaxy because of its distinctive profile, NASA said in a statement.

Astronomers have, so far, found all other known exoplanets and exoplanet candidates in the Milky Way galaxy, almost all of them less than about 3,000 light-years from Earth.

An exoplanet in M51 would be about 28 million light-years away, meaning it would be thousands of times farther away than those in the Milky Way, NASA said.

"We are trying to open up a whole new arena for finding other worlds by searching for planet candidates at X-ray wavelengths, a strategy that makes it possible to discover them in other galaxies," said Rosanne Di Stefano of the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard and Smithsonian (CfA) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who led the study.

The findings are published in the journal Nature Astronomy.

The exoplanet candidate was spotted in a binary system called M51-ULS-1, located in M51. This binary system contains a black hole or neutron star orbiting a companion star with a mass about 20 times that of the Sun. The X-ray transit they found using Chandra data lasted about three hours, during which the X-ray emission decreased to zero.

Based on this and other information, the team estimates the exoplanet candidate in M51-ULS-1 would be roughly the size of Saturn and orbit the neutron star or black hole at about twice the distance of Saturn from the Sun.

The team looked for X-ray transits in three galaxies beyond the Milky Way galaxy, using both Chandra and the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton. Their search covered 55 systems in M51, 64 systems in Messier 101 (the "Pinwheel" galaxy), and 119 systems in Messier 104 (the "Sombrero" galaxy).

However, more data would be needed to verify the interpretation as an extragalactic exoplanet. One challenge is that the planet candidate's large orbit means it would not cross in front of its binary partner again for about 70 years, thwarting any attempts for a confirming observation for decades, NASA said.

Named in honor of the late Indian-American Nobel laureate, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, the Chandra X-ray Observatory is the world's most powerful X-ray telescope. It has eight times greater resolution and is able to detect sources more than 20-times fainter than any previous X-ray telescope.

Known to the world as Chandra (which means "moon" or "luminous" in Sanskrit), Chandrasekhar was widely regarded as one of the foremost astrophysicists of the twentieth century. (IANS/JB)
