21 Amazing Facts About The Internet


Google has estimated some amazing facts about the internet. Since the dawn of Internet time, the number of websites has grown exponentially and so too has the amount of information available and created.

The Internet has shaped our lives in profound ways, especially if you’re old enough to remember the pre-Internet era where a business card was the equivalent of a LinkedIn profile.

Facts About The Internet

NOTE: sourced from multiple locations, tried to be as statistically accurate as possible as of May 2013.

1.

Google estimated in 2010, that the data size of the Internet is 5 million Terabytes, 61% from videos, and growing rapidly. Google has the largest index of the Internet out of any company, but claims to have scanned only 0.004% of the total.

2.

There’s an estimated 637 million websites (source), of which there are over 250 million blogs.

3.

"There are approximately 4,200 new domain names registered every hour, or around 37 million per year."

WordPress, the most widely known Content Management System (CMS) for websites, powers approximately 63 million blogs, but is not the largest blog provider.

Tumblr.com has 102 Million blogs, Livejournal reports 63 million blogs and Weebly states it has over 12 million blogs.

Facebook has an estimated 1.2 Billion active users.

To put that into perspective, there’s about 7 billion people on Earth. 17% of humans are on Facebook.

6.

Even more crazy is that there are about 2.4 billion Internet users. That means 50% of all Internet users are on Facebook.

The first ever email was sent in 1971 by Ray Tomilinson, the US programmer who invented the email system.

The “@” symbol was used to signify that the message was sent to a person instead of a machine.

30 Celebrity Stage Names You Thought Were Real


Quite often the famous names we’ve grown to know and love are not the celebrity’s real names at all. The reasons for using a stage name instead of their real names are, in most cases, more mundane than you may think.

In the world of entertainment and business, perception matters and your name can have a large impact on first impressions.

In our companion article, we looked at 30 Celebrities Born With Awesome Names Who Don’t Use Stage Names. Having an ordinary name does you no favors and the lucky people on that list can thank their parents for being born with awesome real names.

But using a stage name has become common place among celebrities and they may do this to either hide their heritage, have some element of privacy or simply to create a more punchy name for publicity’s sake. For actors though, their reason may simply be due to rules governing the Screen Actors Guild that dictates there can be no two members with the exact same name.

Let’s take a look at some famous names you may have thought were their real birth names.

Bear joined the UK’s Territorial Army and served part-time with the SAS. In 1996, Bear was “within a whisker” of being paralyzed in a parachuting accident in Zambia.

His TV show, Man vs. Wild, features Grylls dropped into inhospitable places as he shows viewers how to survive. That includes drinking his own pee.

Matcha green tea, a finely-milled green tea powder, shares many of the beneficial antioxidants found in other kinds of green tea leaf and is full of natural substances that improve health and well-being in a lot of different ways.

If you find yourself getting sleepy at your desk by the time 3 P.M. comes around, drinking green tea is a far better choice than coffee if you’re looking for a quick pick-me-up. Although matcha tea does contain caffeine, it has two to three times less than black tea and only 10% the amount found in coffee.

Millions of people across the globe drink matcha green tea for its health benefits such as protection from heart disease, diabetes, and some forms of brain, prostate, cervical and bladder cancer.

The difference between various teas is the method used to process the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis tea plant, with white tea being the least processed, followed by green tea, oolong tea and black tea.

In 2003, the University of Colorado reported that the concentration of EGCG, a natural polyphenol that prevents various chronic diseases, is up to 137 times greater in matcha green tea than the amount of EGCG from other types of green tea sold in the U.S.

Even if you don’t like tea, drinking matcha tea as part of a healthy diet is recommended to improve overall health and wellness. A healthy body burns fat faster than an unhealthy one and tea can assist with weight loss.

Matcha Green Tea Boosts The Immune System

The vitamins and antioxidants found in green tea and white tea naturally kill off bacteria and viruses. A healthy body leads to greater work productivity, overall happiness and lower stress levels.

Antioxidants are known to help fight off damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals that are linked to various chronic diseases.

Protect Against DNA Damage

Matcha green tea contains EGCG, a natural polyphenol, which has been shown to slow cancer growth and protect cells from DNA damage. Research has also shown that drinking green tea daily shrank tumors in some patients.

Matcha Green Tea Reverses Signs Of Aging

The natural polyphenol EGCG found in matcha green tea rejuvenates dying skin cells, keeping skin looking fresh and healthy. This natural remedy to help prevent wrinkles also helps with ulcers, wounds, psoriasis and eczema.

Lower Blood Pressure

What’s the best way to lower your blood pressure levels by 2 to 3 points? Daily consumption of three or more cups of black or green tea per day! Even a small decrease in blood pressure drastically reduces your risk of stroke or coronary heart disease.matcha green tea pot

Keep Your Partner or Date Happy

No-one wants to kiss a dirty mouth (unless that’s your thing) and tea can help even the most unhygienic of us. Matcha Green Tea contains fluoride that strengthens teeth as well as having the ability to kill plaque-causing bacteria, tooth decay and also bad breath.

Matcha Green Tea Helps With Weight Loss

Matcha green tea boosts the body’s metabolism and helps burn fat faster. Tea drinkers raise their metabolism by 4.5% for as long as 8 hours after a cup, where three cups of green tea a day can help burn off 3 pounds of fat per year.

Stronger Bones

Regular matcha green tea drinkers have higher bone density lending to stronger bones. The chemical epigallocatechin (EGC) achieves up to 79% extra bone growth by enhancing bone mineralization in the cells and also blocks the activity of osteoclast, a type of cell that breaks down bones.

Matcha Green Tea Rehydrates The Body

If you’re feeling thirsty after a session of exercise, there is only one fluid better than water to help re-hydrate your body – matcha green tea. The truth is that water does the same job as tea, except that water does not have the added antioxidant benefits.

A Word Of Warning

Even though matcha tea’s caffeine content is 10% to 20% that of coffee, drinking excessive amounts can lead to side effects such as irritability, insomnia, heart palpitations and dizziness.

If you have a heart condition, kidney disease, stomach ulcer or anxiety disorder, avoid drinking any form of tea or caffeinated drink.

All In Moderation

Two or three cups of matcha green tea per day is the recommended amount that will lead to the greatest of health benefits. Tea comes with many more health benefits including weight loss with lower cholesterol and diabetes prevention. Additionally, you have higher mental alertness and decreased stress.

Go ahead. Put the kettle on.

5 Silly Blogging Mistakes That Can Be Easily Avoided

Blogging is a great way to show off your expertise, hock your products and services or earn a bit of money through display advertising. Many bloggers who are starting out want to know how to grow their blog’s audience, while playing a game of trial and error.

Here are some silly blogging mistakes that you can avoid, thanks to the trial and error of others who have tried to figure out what works and what doesn’t.

Mistake 1. Treat Blogging As A Sprint

Blogging is not a race to push out as many posts as possible in the shortest period of time. That’s a sure-fire way of burning yourself out – mentally, creatively and physically.

It is a far better strategy to post at a steady and consistent rate that can last you for the long haul.

Even if you’ve got a lot of ideas in your head and the creative juices are flowing, feel free to get that down and write, write, write. But don’t be too keen to publish them all at once. Pace yourself.

A month or two down the track, you might hit a creativity bump. It happens to everyone. So when that happens, you’ll still have something to publish from your archives.

If you are ultra-productive and can’t stop writing, try to keep an archive of 2 weeks worth of material. That should save you in times of drought.

Mistake 2. Posting Sporadically

Connected to point #1, posting haphazardly is not the best way to build an audience. People prefer routine and your publishing schedule should be set to a fixed routine.

Posting 5 articles one week, then 1 the next, then 3 after that shows inconsistency and a lack of planning.

Choose how many posts you want to publish each week and the precise days and time to publish.

As a general rule, one post per week is the bare minimum – consistently.

Some bloggers like to publish to a tight schedule such as on Sunday evenings at 6pm and Wednesday mornings at 7am – like clock work.

Mistake 3. Posting On Friday Night

When it comes to reader engagement, there’s one particular time of the week that consistent performs worse than any other time – Friday nights.

It may not be a surprise, but come Friday night, most people don’t want to be sitting at their computer after a long week of work. Every Friday night around the world, people are gearing up to go out, or just relaxing at home with the family.

The second worst time to post an article is Saturdays. The same argument can be had for Saturdays where most folks just want to be away from their computer doing other things.

Better yet – take the weekend off!

Mistake 4. Bad Headlines

This is a typical mistake I keep banging on about. Don’t write bad headlines or titles. Post titles are just as important – if not more so – than the post content.

We all love fun and quirky blog titles but you need to get the topic across to the reader is a clear and unambiguous way.

You have to give readers a clear idea of what to expect from the post while also ensuring the search engines will be on your side. Great headlines are also Search Engine Optimized (SEO).

Mistake 5. Giving Up Too Soon

New bloggers jump in bright eyed and full of enthusiasm, which is absolutely an essential ingredient to getting your blog off the ground. But when it comes to the cold hard truth a few weeks or months down the track, bloggers find it difficult to face reality.

See Do New Bloggers Need A Small Dose Of Reality?

The truth is that it may take months or even years for your blog to reach satisfying heights of popularity.

While some bloggers may feel disillusioned by this fact, others may simply think ‘OK, I’ll keep at it until I succeed – and then I’ll keep going’. Yes, that’s the right attitude!

Keep at it and don’t give up too soon. How soon is “too soon”? I cant answer that for you. But give your blog a really good chances and have faith in your own abilities to make it a success.

Don’t check your Google Analytics at all during the first 3 months. It could just end in heartache seeing a trickle of visitors.

Don’t get discouraged by to lack of visitors during your first 3 months – it’s entirely normal! You need to give the search engines time to find you, as well as establish a loyal readership.

Keep blogging.
