Where to Get Music Video Codes

go to Homepage or Listen to Music

I believe most of you prefer getting music video codes from Youtube to those from music video code websites that I think its video quality is much better than Youtube. You can modify or change size of your video screen as you'd like. I am telling you about some music video code sites I regularly visit. However these websites provide only high-quality music videos run at the speed of 300 kbps or more. So you need to have a very hi-speed internet connection, let's say, 512 kbps of speed. The recommended music video code websites are as follows:


This one is my favorite as it looks nice and professional. Over 95% of the codes work. Some are broken. Nevertheless, newly released songs are unlikely to be posted. You have to wait for some time to get codes of new songs.


Its competitive edge is that new song codes are added once the new songs are released. Codes of old songs are available. However half of the codes are not working.


Music video codes of this site always work and I think this site accommodates a huge number of music video codes. The only problem is that there are too many pop-up ads when you change pages.

Wordpress Doesn't Support Adsense?

I have been thinking of creating a new blog solely contributed to Education matters related to learning English, Studying Abroad or that sort of thing. Just realized that the free wordpress, I mean using a subdomain like, does not support adsense. You are not allowed to cut and paste adsense codes on your wordpress. In other words, you cannot make money from free wordpress hosting.

However you can earn money from wordpress and adsense by registering your domain name, and getting your hosting. Then you download Wordpress Content Management Software which is free and install it. The software will support a lot more features than that used in wordpress free hosting.

Wordpress is now still the best content management software available in the blogsphere. More importantly it is free!

Why Aren't Music Video Code Sites Popular in Asia?

go to Homepage or Listen to Music

At present, there are a lot of music video code websites in the websphere but it seems popular in only some countries. Those countries are North American and European countries as well as Japan. Actually those websites perform well for the first world or countries with good I infrastructure especially widely-deployed broadband network.

As you know, broadband connection is becoming more and more available and the cost is getting lower and lower due to economy of scale. Nevertheless, most of the people in the third world still have less accessibility to use hi-speed internet while most music video code websites provide music video codes at hi-speed streaming rate that usually cause troubles when using narrowband internet connection hence taking a long time to see a music video. People hate waiting.

If you come to doing something with music video and your targets are in Asia or the third world people, make sure that the video streaming is of low rate, 100-150kbps is the most optimized range.

BigNose is ranked No.1 by Google Search

I was just searching for the word "BigNose" on and 137,ooo result pages were generated. is ranked NO.1!!

How about searching in, it is still listed in the first page and ranked No.5 with 138,000 result pages. It is not bad, isn't it?

When searching using the word "exteen", BigNose is ranked No.2 just behind itself, BlogToBoom comes up as No.7.

I am awaiting BMW to launch a new model named "BigNose" again so that I can get some big traffic, at the time, my blog would be BMW Series, one of my favorit cars.

Miho Nakayama vs. Misaki Ito

go to Homepage or Listen to Music

Have you guys even watched a Japanese Series, Densha Otoko or Trainman? I watched this series a couple of times just because I thought Miho Nakayama (her photo is on the left hand side) starred in this series and I wondered why she still looks great(yes, she is) and never heard of her appearance in movies or series for years. Yesterday I discovered that it was the wrong person as the one playing Saori(Hermes) is Misaki Ito!(the right hand side photo) It is not Miho.

They look alike so much.

I am updating a MV (Densha Otoko) featuring Misaki Ito(just a little bit) and a MV starred by Miho Nakayama in Love Letter dated back to the year 1995.

Regarding Scobleizer

go to Homepage or Listen to Music

I have been thinking of registering a domain name to create a new blog or website to play safe in case my free blogs are wiped out somehow. All my blogs now are of blogspot, exteen and wordpress(The last blog is used as a back-up blog for this blogspot one and is not updated for a month by now.) Until just now, I may change my mind when I came across the second best blog ranked by It is scobleizer!

I was amazed that the owner of the blog is now using a free-blog hosting like me. Even more interesting, he just changed his blog address to wordpress and of course, it is a free blog again!

It is extremely rare to find a very popular blog using free hosting.

His blog is about tech stuff.

Free Hosting for Videos

go to Homepage or Listen to Music

Well, according to some post of mine regarding "how to put music onto your blog", in case that you'd like to braodcast your own home/music videos, you have to make sure that the host on which you have uploaded files is working properly. It is rare to find a good free host for videos however there have been more and more sites generated to support this kind of service.

One of the most popular and technically reliable is If you have tons of traffic, it is recommended. I have never tried it but I know from a website fixing a traffic problem by switching to this site hosting a very popular music video to handle thousands of access a day.

Recently castpost stops getting members but you can fill your email in a blank provided for an invitation when memberships are available. is a good one but sometimes it is now working probably depending on the traffic volume. However it is difficult to find a URL link that works for broadcasting your video on your blog or website. is the second best in my view as it always works however the URL link generated will not end up with .wmv, or any extensions. It is confusing by its management control. You can easily find a URL link to use for your blog/website by usin flashget or any download manager software. Before downloading you will see a link with a word "binary", that is the link you can use for video broadcasting. The space you can have is 250 MB! is the best in anyway. It is the best for broadcasting videos for Thai as the server is located in Thailand.

I will add more later if I find more interesting hosting websites for videos.

Use Specific Headline as Keywords to Drive Traffic to Your Blog

go to Homepage or Listen to Music

You know now there are millions of articles that guide you how to make your blog famous, how to drive traffic to your blog, how to make money from your blog but only a small number of articles that give you unique and practical ways to achieving that. Experiences help!

Today I am still somewhere around creating keywords to drive traffic to your beloved site or blog. I am not talking about top paying keywords. Just make your blog famous, keep your guests coming in everyday and then make money from that.

One of the most difficult things in the blogsphere especially when using free-blog-hosting like mine is to generate traffic to your blog. I have discovered a new way but maybe old for some people.

These days I notice that each day tens of visitors have come to my blog using search engines. The point is that the keywords are "how to put music on your blog" or "how to put music in your blog" or more or less the same.

I found that my blog is displayed in the first page when using the keywords "how to put music on your blog" or it is ranked in the second page when the keywords "put music on your blog" is used. Interestingly I just posted this entry for less than 1 month competing against 131,000,000 result pages sought by Google.

Does SEO-Search Engine Optimization work well? Probably yes or partially.

My assumption and advice is that using more specific keywords as a topic or headline of your post is a new way to effectively drive traffic to your blog. Start it with "how to" could be a good way.

Wordpress: Probably the Best Free Content Management Software for Bloggers

go to Homepage or Listen to Music

I have heard of this content management software for months and I have got a chance to try it as at the time, this blog of mine was locked so I needed to make sure that everything would still exist though it could have been wiped out for some unknown reason.

I then decided to create a new blog in order to use it as a back-up one in case there is something wrong with this blog.

Most people who are experts in content management solutions say Wordpress is the best content management software that bloggers can possess free-of-charge. I do agree.

This CMS allows you to place ads in any part of your blog page meaning that you can maximize the effectiveness of your blog putting the right ads in the right place!

It also allows you to categorize your entries so that it is convenient for your visitors to find what they are looking for on your blog.

I am now thinking of creating a new blog using a domain name and pay for hosting. What the new blog is about is the biggest problem of mine.

When Talk-of-the-Town Matters

go to Homepage or Listen to Music

In the previous post, I mentioned on 6 tips to drive traffic to a blog. It is the first article I submited to some 10 article sites in exchange of traffic. Now it has born fruit but just to some degree. At least there are results when I do a search using my name in English.

Let's go straight to the point, the last tip said something about hot keywords that could never be bid as it's just a talk-of-the-town.

When I saw the news on TV about that Gillian Chung was victimized by Paparazzi in Genting, Malaysia 2 weeks ago when she adjusted her bra at the backstage during a concert. I made me "google" to see what is going out there to one of my favorite actresses though I have seen only a couple of her movies. She is also a popular singer grouped with another Hong Kongese singer in the name of "Twins". If I am not wrong, some song of her is listed in my blog.

The keywords I used were "Gillian Chung Naked" and I got some 58,ooo search results. It is such a small number of search results when compared to other keywords like "content management", "domain name register" and others that are bid at high prices. However the keywords "Gillian Chung Naked" are worthless in the eyes of internet marketers as no one bids for these words.

It is nothing in terms of cost per click or bid price but it does matter on traffic.

When I surfed the internet seeking this news, I also checked the number of visitors of the site I was visiting. I discovered that the sites which covered this hot news were flooded by visitors and double or triple the number of unique visitors. Those sites also run adsense!

So you can drive traffic to your blog using talk-of-the-town words though it is commercially useless. However the situation could be better, if those words cover words like "Britney Spears" which make money though it is cheap.
