The Internet is a tough place to get started in marketing your products or services. Gone are the days of a small on-line community in which competition was not abundant and customers would simply type in what they were looking for and find one or two websites to choose from. If you simply start a website selling your product or service and never engage in active marketing, chances are you will never see a sale or they will trickle in at a rate that will only frustrate you. This is why it is more important than ever to develop a robust Internet marketing plan.
How do you get started in Internet marketing?
Once you have decided that you are serious about marketing your product or service through the Internet, it is not terribly hard to get started in doing so. The main way on-line marketeers are generating leads and sales in today’s Internet marketplace is called “backlinks”. Backlinks are simply links to your website that come from another unaffiliated website. If you have quality backlinks on highly visible, high-traffic websites, you have a built-in audience, one that you don’t have to spend time building, that will see your link and click through to your website.

As today’s internet changes, so do the ways that you build websites. As any webmaster of today knows, simply designing, building and creating content for a website will not get you a good ranking with the many search engines that are out there. Much more needs to be done in order to achieve the maximum effect that you want for your website.
In the past, you could have simply loaded your website with good content and a few ample keywords in order to receive a good ranking with the major search engines. With the internet being more accessible, convenient and easy to do seemingly daunting tasks for even the most novice of webmasters, there are many more websites on the internet now. For this reason, it is getting harder to achieve a favorable ranking in these same search engines. Search engines have changed their criteria based on this fact and are becoming more selective with what websites they rank. Think of it this way. If you have the only website on a particular topic that someone is searching for, then your ranking will be number one on all of the search engines. Now increase that same scenario except this time you are not the only person with a website on that topic, there are 100 other websites with the same topic information. It would be harder to achieve a high ranking dependent on what the other websites have to offer. That is the every day scenario that every website faces in today’s world. This is the hurdle that you must overcome if you desire to have a website that will rank well with the search engines.

Nothing illustrates the evolution of anime better than the evolution of one of its first superstars – Astroboy. This popular cartoon character for children made his Japanese debut back in 1952. Astroboy was the creation of Dr. Osamu Tezuka, a Tokyo manga (comic book) artist. The name Osamu Tezuka is as revered in Japan as Walt Disney is in the United States and his work has been just as influential.
The original Astroboy, known as Atom Boy in Japan, was a big-eyed robot boy with a human heart. Early renderings of the character set the style for anime for decades to come. Doe-eyed heroes and heroines have paid homage to Tezuka’s robot hero ever since. Like Astroboy himself, though, they have become ever more elaborately rendered. The big-eyed, small-mouth and nose character has even become recognized as part of the definition of anime in some circles, though that is not entirely accurate.
Just as Osamu Tezuka was influenced by Western cartoons and cartoonists, our cartoon art has been influenced by anime. It is a two-way street, based both on artistic and commercial sensibilities. Cartoon artists are artists first and always look for inspiration from other artists. The producers of animated films are business people first and they look for ways to alter the characters, plots and animation techniques that will appeal to larger audiences.
It may be because its target audience was international that made the animators of the 2002 winner of the Best Animated Film Oscar, Spirited Away, decide to make their protagonist’s eyes smaller than most anime characters’ eyes had been in the past. For whatever reasons, they were, and other characters in the film had far more realistic faces than the smooth skinned Chihiro (the heroine). In spite of that, she retained so many of the classic anime characteristics that only a hardened cynic could say that the film was not “real” anime.
