Secret Classroom is an internet marketing course in a set of 12 DVDs featuring all the 12 episodes of reality show, The Next Internet Millionaire, with 2 hour sessions on internet marketing by experts like Jeff Walker, Rich Schefren, Ray Edwards, Mark Joyner etc. These experts teaches a handful of aspiring entrepreneurs, the secrets of successful internet marketing, as if in a classroom. This much awaited course was released on December 5th and became an instant hit among internet marketers, both amateurs and professionals. The Secret Classroom is not a get rich quick gimmick. It is an education that will improve your income and your internet marketing business for the rest of your life.
I would have really loved to have a copy of the secret classroom. Unfortunately, the prize of the set is unaffordable for me right now. But I will surely get a copy when I can afford one. Have any of you bought a copy? If so, can you please tell your opinion on this internet marketing course?

Do you love learning new languages? Did you ever wish to become a polyglot? Well, here is your chance to learn almost a dozen new languages for free.
Mango Languages is an online language learning system that facilitates you to learn almost a dozen new languages through their interactive website. According to the Mango Languages site,
Mango beta is an online language learning system freely available to everyone. Learn at your own pace with a suite of features that make language learning more engaging and fun.
Each language is divided into 100 lessons with each lesson having almost a hundred slides. Mango Languages actively engages audio and visual cues to help you learn the new language. The language lessons includes audio from native speakers of the language and phonetic transcriptions, so that you can learn the language with the correct pronunciation. Mango Languages also include quizzes to test and improve your language learning. The interface is created in Adobe Flash and I felt very much comfortable with it.
Mango Languages currently supports the following language lessons
Brazilian Portuguese for English Speakers
English for Polish Speakers
English for Spanish Speakers
French for English Speakers
German for English Speakers
Greek for English Speakers
Italian for English Speakers
Japanese for English Speakers
Mandarin Chinese for English Speakers
Pig Latin for English Speakers
Russian for English Speakers
Spanish for English Speakers
By early 2008, Mango Language plan to launch an updated version of the site by polishing the existing languages and by adding new languages to the system. Newly planned languages include Hebrew, Arabic, Korean, Polish, Vietnamese, Thai, Cantonese Chinese, Irish Gaelic, Farsi, Hindi, Turkish and Ukrainian.
Mango Languages also allows offline learning using downloaded mp3 files, which can be burned into a CD or played using iPod. But, unlike the web learning, offline learning is not free and costs you $1.50 per lesson or $149.95 for an entire language.
I had always stayed away from Link Trains because of the fear of search engines penalizing my site. But today I found this Link Train on Jon’s site and found it interesting, because the links have a no follow tag on it. Since the Link Trains follows Google’s guideline of using the nofollow attribute, I too decided to join the train.
If the links have a nofollow tag, then why should you join the contest? There are four reasons.
Helps you get backlinks which will improve your Technorati ranking

I was extremely busy for the past few days, and that is the reason why I couldn’t post anything on this blog. Today I thought of making a post, but couldn’t think of anything to write. So I decided to share a few cool videos that I found on the net.
We hear the word Web 2.0 almost everyday. But do you know what exactly is Web 2.0? If not, see the 5 minute video below by Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University. The video was released almost an year back, so it is most probable that some of you have already seen it.

I saw this video on a post in Steven’s blog and found it cool. Actually, I stopped using Google Toolbar after reading an article on the same topic, a few months back.

Ubuntu + Beryl
I have installed Ubuntu on my system only once. It was long back and Ubuntu wasn’t as good as it is now. But recently, after watching this video, I have decided to try it again.
Also the Making Sales Making Money contest at ContestBlogger is going to end on Monday. The entry requirement is extremely simple and require you to link to the sponsor homepage using the text home based business opportunities and to Contest Blogger homepage using the anchor text sweepstakes somewhere on your blog.
Today I would like to introduce you to a recently launched website – rssHugger. rssHugger is a website which allows bloggers to gain subscribers and subscribers to find new interesting blogs. rssHugger is the brain child of Collin LaHay. rssHugger will be the first ever quality, spam free, and viral rss directory strictly for bloggers.
When you submit your blog to rssHugger, you will be given a page on the site with your most recent posts. This will provide more exposure to your blog among subscribers. To know more about the advantages of joining rssHugger, visit the About section of rssHugger.
Initially you had to spend $20 or $10 and a review on your site to list your feed for 10 years on rssHugger. But now, you can add your feed for free by writing a review about the site. I advice you to write a review as early as possible, because they may revoke the offer when the number of reviews increases.
A few days back I blogged on how to earn some easy bucks using your blog by participating in blog contests. Now many of the new and established blogs are holding contests to increase their popularity or to celebrate a special occassion to them. But it is not an easy task to find out the best competitions for joining. Now there are a number of blogs that are dedicated to contest that helps blogs conducting the contests to find participants and vice versa. Here are some of the contest blogs that I frequently visit.
This is my favorite contest blog, which I visit very frequently. Contest Blogger specializes in blog contests only. Contest Blogger was the first blog that started participating in contests while blogging about them. What makes Contest Blogger special is the Contest Blogger Oath according to which any prize won by the Contest Blogger will be given away to its readers by holding another contest. Initially Contest Blogger used to post about all blog contests, but now only featured contest will appear on the blog. There is a integrated forum for other contests. If you need some publicity, you can also sponsor a contest.
This was the first contest site that I visited and which tempted me to join different blog contests. Unlike Contest Blogger, The Prize Blog deals with all contests, not just contests hosted by blogs. If you are hosting a contest on your blog, you can have a basic listing for free or a featured listing for $20.
My Blog Contest is another blog that allows both free and featured listing for your contests. For free listing, you will have to write up the post. The price for featured listing is not specified on the contact page.
My Blog Contests is another cool blog on blog contests. Last day a My Blog Contests toolbar was released which allows you to access all the My Blog Contests resources directly from the toolbar. Listing your contest on My Blog Contests is free.
Contest Beat is a highly updated blog dealing on blog contests. A featured sitewide listing of your contest on Contest Beat costs your $25. You can also have a free listing of your contest for free. If you are looking for sponsors for your contest or want to sponsor a contest, then there is a section for that too.
Holding a contest is one of the best way to increase visitors and your feedburner subscriber count. Participating in contests is one of the best way to make money online. The contest blogger is a cool blog that lists all the currently running competitions in the blogosphere.
I occassionally participate in competitions hosted by other blogs and have so far won 4 prizes.
It has been more than one month since my last post on the series â€œMy List of recommended WordPress Pluginsâ€. Once again I am back with 5 new plugins.
You may call this shameless self promotion. But I am starting this list with my own plugin – Local Analytics 🙂 . Local Analytics is a plugin for integrating Google Analytics into your WordPress powered blog. The main advantage of the plugin is its ability to locally cache urchin.js file, to speed up your page loading. You are also able to track downloads and external clicks with this highly configurable plugin.
The second plugin I am dealing with today is Defensio. You maybe already familiar with Defensio, as the recent public launch of the plugin created a lot of interest in the Blogosphere. I am happy to say that I was one of the beta testers of Defensio Anti spam plugin for WordPress. I liked the interface of the plugin much more than Akismet. As far as the spam detection is concerned, I think Defensio is a little too strict compared with Akismet. Fortunately, Defensio is said to have the ability to adapt to the site on which it is installed.
After posting a comment, many times I wanted to add some more information to the comment. Usually I post a second post below the first with the additional information. Fortunately, I found a plugin that allows commentators to edit their comment for a specified period of time, after it was posted. Administrators are able to edit comments directly from the post page. This cool plugin is called WP AJAX Edit Comments. Unfortunately, the plugin is showing some errors on my blog. I checked the plugin homepage and found out that it is caused by the threaded comments plugin.
In my Local Analytics plugin’s page, several users asked about the possibilty of integrating Google Analytics reports within the Word Press Admin Panel. WP-Reports is an awesome plugin by Joe Tan, that allows you to integrate your Google Analytics Reports and FeedBurner subscriber stats within your Administration Panel.
Last but not the least, I would like to recommend the Related Posts plugin from FairyFish. The plugin will display a list of related posts under all your posts. Unlike other similar plugins, this plugin can display a list of random or popular posts, if not related posts were found.
Please checkout these cool plugins and let me know your comments about the list. You may also be interested in the previous posts in the series
