Menghasilkan Uang Melalui Internet

Bisa menghasilkan uang melalui internet mungkin adalah impian semua penulis blog ataupun pemilik web, betapa tidak?? 
Yang hanya kita butuhkan hanyalah seperangkat komputer atau notebook dan koneksi internet, kemudian kita membuat tulisan pada blog/website kita sendiri lalu mendaftarkan domain milik kita ke salah satu jasa penyedia ads.

Sekilas memang sangatlah terlihat mudah, dengan hanya beberapa tulisan kita dapat menghasilkan uang....
Itupun kesan pertama yang saya dapatkan ketika memulai menulis blog. saya perbanyak referensi mengenai menghasilkan uang melalui internet ini. Ada yang mengatakan hanya dengan copy paste tulisan berbahasa inggris sebanyak 5 buah, anda sudah bisa menjadi rekanan dari google adsense.

Memang nampaknya para blogger sangat berambisi untuk dapat diterima di google adsense, namun nyatanya sekarang tidaklah semudah dulu. Google adsense semakin selektif dan tidak asal2an untuk menerima konten berbahasa inggris begitu saja. Mengapa harus google adsense?? Ini adalah pertanyaan yang sangatlah mudah dijawab. Google Adsense saat ini memang rajanya di bidang PPC, jika saya perhatikan, hanya google adsense-lah yang bisa memberikan iklan sesuai dengan konten blog kita, dan itu memang sangat menarik.

Selain google adsense memang masih ada, diantaranya Adbrite atau dari Indonesia, AdsenseCamp dan KumpulBlogger. Untuk ketiga perusahaan PPC, kemungkinan blog anda di approved sangat mudah.

Jika anda memang tertarik untuk me-monetize blog, yang perlu anda perhatikan adalah :
  1. Buatlah konten yang sangat menarik
  2. Membuat tulisan yang kira2 banyak orang cari, anda dapat melihat trend apa saja yang sedang dicari melalui mesin pencarian dengan google trend
  3. Sebaiknya hindari Copy Paste, karena perusahaan PPC atau jenis perusahaan iklan lainnya lebih akan menghargai konten yang original
  4. Naikkan terus rate pembaca di blog anda, untuk part ini diperlukan keahlian SEO, anda bisa mempelajarinya dengan browsing di google
  5. Terus update blog anda, setidaknya 2 postingan per hari
  6. Untuk google adsense, sekarang mungkin lebih sulit jika menggunakan media blogspot (walaupun blogspot masih bagian dari google)..anda bisa mencari alternatif lain dengan menggunakan domain gratis
  7. Berdoa

Semoga bisa membantu, setidaknya dasarnya saja, karena saya juga masih pemula. Selamat mencoba!


Lebaran Tiba, Harga Tiket Pesawat Melambung

Hari Raya Idul Fitri masih tiga pekan lagi, tetapi tampaknya masyarakat terutama kaum urban yang akan melakukan mudik saat lebaran nanti telah memborong tiket pesawat.

Akibat tingginya pemesanan tiket sejak awal puasa, harga tiket melambung. Bahkan, untuk penerbangan rute tertentu, ada beberapa maskapai yang telah kehabisan tiket hingga H-5 lebaran yang jatuh pada 10 September 2010.

Sejumlah maskapai menyebutkan, harga tiket pesawat dari Jakarta menjelang lebaran melonjak, bahkan ada yang lebih dari 3X lipat.

Sebagai contoh harga tiket Lion Air rute Jakarta-Yogyakarta untuk keberangkatan tanggal 9 September 2010 yang mencapai Rp. 981.000 per penumpang, padahal harga tiket rute yang sama pada 18 Agustus 2010 hanya Rp. 273.000 per penumpang.

Sementara di situs resminya, tiket Mandala Air juga banyak yang telah habis. Tiket kelas ultra saver dari Jakarta tujuan beberapa kota besar mulai tanggal 7 September sudah habis.

Untuk maskapai Sriwijaya Air telah menjual semua tiket sebagian besar rute penerbangannya mulai tiga hari menjelang lebaran.

Bahkan untuk rute Jakarta-Yogayakarta, yang masih ada pada tanggal 4 September dengan harga Rp. 910.000 per orang.

Sedangkan Batavia masih menyediakan tiket untuk penerbangan tanggal 6 September, harganya pun telah melambung lebih dari dua kali lipat, yaitu Rp. 807.000 per tiket.

Indonesian Volcano Erupts for 2nd Day

An Indonesian volcano dormant for four centuries erupted for the second straight day Monday, shooting clouds of hot ash more than a mile into the air and forcing 30,000 people to flee.

Some domestic airplanes had to be diverted because of poor visibility.

Many villagers living along the slopes of Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra province wore masks as they packed their belongings and headed to emergency shelters, mosques and churches, said Andi Arief, a presidential adviser on disasters.

Their abandoned homes and crops were blanketed in gray soot and the air was thick with the smell of sulfur.

While two people died - a 64-year-old woman from respiratory problems and a 52-year-old man from a heart attack - it was too early to say if the volcano was to blame, said Priyadi Kardono of the National Disaster Management Agency.

Sinabung last erupted in 1600, so observers don't know its eruption pattern and admitted over the weekend they had not monitored it closely before it started rumbling days ago in the lead-up to Sunday's first, less-powerful blast.

Hours later, the alert was raised to the highest level.

Like other volcanoes along the Sumatra fault line - the meeting point of the Eurasian and Pacific tectonic plates that have pushed against each other for millions of years - it has the potential to be very destructive.

Stiff magna forming inside the conical tip can act as a plug, allowing pressure to build up until it reaches a bursting point.

"A volcano with a long repose period could deliver a more powerful eruption," as was the case with Pinatubo in the Philippines in 1991, which killed about 800 people, said Alain Bernard, a professor at the University of Brussels.

Sinabung could either go back to sleep or produce a series of blasts with increasing intensity, he said. "A Pinatubo-size eruption is a rare event and unlikely to appear during the following days. It takes normally weeks or months," said Bernard.

Though strong wind shifts or a powerful follow-up blast could affect air traffic in nearby Singapore and Malaysia, Transportation Ministry spokesman Bambang Ervan said so far only four domestic flights heading to the provincial capital of Medan were diverted.

The number of people evacuated reached 30,000 by Monday afternoon, said Erni Damanik with the Tanah Karo district information center. Many people living along the base of the 8,000-foot mountain have also moved to outlying villages.

Food, emergency tents, and medicine were on the way to the scene, officials said, including more than 17,000 respiratory masks.

Indonesia is spread across 17,500 islands and is prone to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes because of its location within the so-called "Ring of Fire" - a series of fault lines stretching from the Western Hemisphere through Japan and Southeast Asia.

It is also home to some of the largest eruptions in recorded history.

The 1815 explosion of Mount Tambora buried the inhabitants of Sumbawa Island under searing ash, gas and rock, killing an estimated 88,000 people.

The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa could be heard 2,000 miles away and blackened skies region-wide for months. At least 36,000 people were killed in the blast and the tsunami that followed.

Hurricane Earl lashes Caribbean, threatens US

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Hurricane Earl lashed the northeastern Caribbean on Monday as a still-growing Category 3 storm, tearing roofs off buildings and cutting power to islanders on a course that could threaten the eastern United States this week.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Earl, which formed on Sunday, was already a major hurricane with sustained winds of 125 mph (205 kph), and it was likely to keep gaining force.

"Interests from North Carolina all the way to Maine should keep an eye on the system," said Jessica Schauer, a meteorologist at the Hurricane Center.

The storm's center was forecast to pass over or near the northernmost Virgin Islands later Monday as it gradually turns to the north before running roughly parallel to the U.S. East Coast.

The Hurricane Center said it is early to say what effect Earl would have on the U.S., but warns it could at least kick up dangerous rip currents. A surfer died in Florida and a Maryland swimmer has been missing since Saturday in waves spawned by now-weakening Hurricane Danielle.

Earl's eye passed just north of the tiny British territory of Anguilla, where police said the wind blew the roofs off buildings and damaged utility poles.

"The winds are whistling outside," said Martin Gussie, a police officer involved in coordinating the emergency response. "When the gusts of wind come, each time it sounds stronger."

In Antigua, wind and rain destroyed at least one home, though there were no reports of critical injuries. Emergency response officials said about 350 people were in shelters. Local weather authorities reported at least 5 inches (13 centimeters) of rain and 10-foot (3-meter) waves.

In St. Maarten, the storm toppled trees, damaged roofs and knocked out electricity to much of the island. Heavy gusts of wind swirled debris across streets that were empty due to a government-imposed curfew.

Alisha Daya, a 24-year-old tourist from Milwaukee, said she wore earplugs Sunday night but still had trouble sleeping because of the noise from the wind and crashing waves at the Oyster Bay Beach Resort in St. Maarten.

"It was loud because we were right on the ocean," said Daya, who said the storm will keep her and her parents and boyfriend from leaving the island as planned on Monday although the worst seemed to have passed. "Some furniture is flying around, but everything seems to be OK."

Cruise lines diverted ships to other ports, and flights were canceled across Puerto Rico and the eastern Caribbean.

The projected track had the storm passing close to or over the British Virgin Islands. In Anegada, the territory's northernmost island with a population of about 280 people, 58-year-old Lila Elly Ali and her son were nailing shut the doors of her century-old, wooden house as the wind began picking up.

"They say the eye of the storm is supposed to come close to us, so we've just got to pray. Everyone here is keeping in touch, listening to the radio," she said.

At the El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, a long line of people waited at the reception desk - as the lights occasionally flickered - to check out and get to the airport, where they faced more delays.

John and Linda Helton of Boulder, Colorado, were waiting it out. The couple, celebrating their 41st wedding anniversary, finished a Caribbean cruise on Sunday and planned to spend three days in Puerto Rico.

"There was a huge line of people checking out as we were coming in and I thought it was just that summer vacation must be over," said John Helton, a real estate appraiser. "But we paid for the room so we might as well stick it out."

Besides, "I don't think we could get a flight even if we wanted to leave," his wife added.

The U.S. Virgin Islands imposed a curfew from 6 p.m. Monday to 5:30 a.m. Tuesday for the islands of St. Thomas and St. John. Police Commissioner Novelle Francis said anyone found on the street during those hours without a pass will be taken into custody.

Hurricane warnings were in effect for Anguilla, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, St. Maarten, Saba, St. Eustatius, the British Virgin Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Puerto Rican islands of Culebra and Vieques.

By late Monday morning, Earl was about 140 miles (230 kilometers) east of San Juan and headed west-northwest at 15 mph (24 kph), according to the center in Miami. Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 60 miles (95 kilometers) from its center.
Earl has grown rapidly in strength, fueled by warm ocean temperatures of 86 F (30 C).

Earl could bring battering waves and storm surges of up to four feet (1.2 meters) above normal on some islands, as well as downpours that threaten to unleash flash floods and mudslides.

Forecasters say there is a chance the hurricane could brush the U.S. Mid-Atlantic region toward the end of the week, with its closest approach to North Carolina on Thursday or Friday.
Meanwhile, the Category 1 Hurricane Danielle was weakening far out over the north Atlantic.
