Features of VS 2008 and .NET 3.5

Hey Guys,

Microsoft has released Beta 2 release of VS 2008 and .NET 3.5 Beta 2 and is now available for download.

I have tried to list some of the features of VS 2008 and .NET 3.5 formally called as ".NET Framework Orcas"

1. Multi-Targeting Support
• That means VS 2008 will support for all the .net framework versions. It automatically supported for .NetFramework 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0.
• Now when you open an existing project or create a new one with VS 2008, you can pick which version of the .NET Framework to work with - and the IDE will update its compilers and feature-set to match this.

2. Web Designer and CSS Support
A few big tool features in the web development:
• JavaScript and CSS intellisense
• Much richer JavaScript debugging
• Nested ASP.NET master page support at design-time
• Rich CSS editing and layout support within the WYSIWYG designer
• Split-view designer support for having both source and design views open on a page at the same time
• A much faster ASP.NET page designer - with dramatic perf improvements in view-switches between source/design mode
• Automated .SQL script generation and hosting deployment support for databases on remote servers

3. ASP.NET AJAX and JavaScript Support
• JavaScript intellisense
• Simple solutions for Calling Services from JavaScript.
• JavaScript Debugging
• Update Panel support with Web Parts,
• WCF support for JSON,
• Number of bug fixes
• Performance improvements

4. Language Improvements and LINQ

5. Data Access Improvements with LINQ to SQL

6. Integrating with the Office 2007 ribbon

7. WCF and Workflow projects and designers are included

8. AJAX web testing (unit and load)

Cheers !!

How to Optimize your blog?

First of all you could build inbound links which are very useful.

You could claim your blog at Technorati and add Technorati tags related to your blog.

As a way to add a keywords-rich introduction to category pages use sticky posts that always appear at the top of the page.

You should add "Next" and "Previous" post buttons to your blog.

Top Ten posts feature to display most popular posts.

Optimizing RSS feeds via Feedburner and even facebook could help you a lot.

Get into other bloggers' blog rolls (trackbacks and comments won't help in link gain).

You could check out Ultimate Tag Warrior plugin for creating Tag clouds and tag pages.

Add a "Related Posts" feature. You may use Contextual Related Posts plugin for WordPress.

Use SEO Title Tag plugin for WordPress to assign unique title tags to individual posts.

Use the Buzzlogic tool to find out which bloggers are most influential in conversations. Refer to them and try to get them to link to you.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a method through which you can promote web businesses where an affiliate is being paid or rewarded for every visitor or sale provided through his efforts.

Affiliate marketing is also the name of the industry where a number of different types of companies and individuals are performing this form of internet marketing, including affiliate networks, affiliate management companies and in-house affiliate managers, specialized third party vendors and various types of affiliates or publishers who utilize a number of different methods to advertise the products and services of their merchant or advertiser partners.

Affiliate marketing overlaps with other internet marketing methods to some degree, because affiliates are using the same methods as most of the merchants themselves do. Those methods include organic search engine optimization, paid search engine marketing, email marketing and to some degree display advertising.

Affiliate marketing - using one site to drive traffic to another - is the stepchild of online marketing. While search engines, e-mail and RSS capture much of the attention of online retailers, affiliate marketing, despite lineage that goes back almost to the beginning of online retailing, carries a much lower profile. Yet affiliates continue to play a fundamental role in e-retailers' marketing strategies.
