Cat Websites: Success Not Dependent upon Quality

The Internet is not what visitors to websites think it is.  The quality of a website is not the major factor in how many visits a website gets.  Quality of content is surprisingly a secondary factor. The major factor is how well it is advertised. And one of the best ways to advertise a website is via Facebook. 

A huge number of website owners advertise their website through Facebook.  In other words, they create an article on their website and they put a link to that article on their Facebook webpage (it is very easy to create a Facebook webpage).  Then they build a massive audience to their Facebook webpage.  They do this by paying people to "like" the page through Asian businesses who charge a low fee.

Most of these businesses are in Asia where they can pay people a very small amount of money to homeworkers to “like" any website that you want, including a Facebook webpage.

There are very many Internet businesses who will guarantee to get for you thousands of "Facebook Likes" to your Facebook webpage.

When the website owner puts a link to their website on their Facebook webpage everyone who likes the Facebook webpage receives a notification to the link.  Then they click on the link and go to the website.  The result is that the website gets more hits and this is a form of advertising.

That is the reality of the internet. I doubt whether anyone is interested but they should be because the websites with the best content should get the most hits.

What is the best content? That is another story but it is not really the best content....

Cat Ear Mites

Brown gunge. Yes, I know this is a ferret! It does show the build up of dark brown to black ear wax caused by the presence of the cat ear mites in the outer ear canal. This parasite is not restricted to the domestic cat, which makes this photo valid and a useful illustration (I was unable to find a suitable photo of a cat with the condition). Photo Stacy Lynn Baum under a creative commons license. Ear mites (minute crab like creatures) are one of the causes of inflammation of the outer ear canal (scientific term for this inflammation is Otitis externa ). The outer ear canal is the tube that runs from outside to the ear drum (the pathway for the reception of sound), which can be seen when looking at the ear. Otitis externa affects humans and often swimmers as it is called "swimmer's ear" in humans. This YouTube video show ear mites under a microscope. They are not actually in the ear in this video. There are many possible causes of Otitis externa in c

Feline Mange

I'll write about three types of feline mange (a) feline scabies or head mange (b) demodectic mange and (c) sarcoptic mange. The source material is from Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook - the best on the market . Generalised feline mange? Puerto Rico - Photo by Gotham City Lost And Found Feline Scabies - head mange Head mange or feline scabies, is a fairly rare condition in cats, which is caused by the Notoedres mite (head mite) that only reproduces on cats. The female mites burrow a few millimeters (that is a lot) into the skin around the head, and neck to lay eggs, which hatch and lay their own eggs. Their presence and activities causes intense itching that in turn causes the cat to scratch. The scratching will obviously be noticed and it will cause the skin to become red, scratched and worse infected. Symptoms: hair loss and scabs, thick wrinkled skin and grey/yellow crusts form plus the symptoms of scratching. Feline mange (head mange) is contagious and tr

Cat Anatomy

Cat Anatomy - Photo by Curious Expeditions . The picture above was taken at Wax Anatomical Models at La Specola in Florence, Italy. The photograph is published under a creative commons license kindly granted by the photographer. I am sorry if it is a bit gruesome. It is pretty well all I could find as an illustration that was licensed for publication. Cat Anatomy is a very wide ranging subject. The anatomy of a cat is very similar to human anatomy. If you were writing a biology book for students of biology you would go through every part of the a cat's anatomy in some detail. It would be similar to writing a book about the human anatomy. It would be a thick book and pretty boring for your average internet surfer. So, how do you limit such a big subject and make this post meaningful? The answer I think lies in doing two things: Having a quick general look at cat anatomy - an overview and; Focusing on the areas of cat anatomy that are particular to the cat and of parti
