I want to write a post about grandparents recording their voices for their grandchildren.

Remember way back in the olden days when we all had cassette tape recorders and y

Please do that will be great

Are you looking for something more than attaching an mp3 or 4 to an email...... I just record a file on my phone and send it as an email.
I'm sure there are "record a voice"....online services that you can use for free.
I get the feeling the more I type....the less I'm helping....oops

yes, I want to be able to send a file bigger than a little voice clip from my phone. Like read a story book out loud, record it, then send the book and the recording to my grandchild so that they can hear me reading the book as they turn the pages. My parents used to do this for my kids when they were little, and I don't know how to do it for my own grandkids now.

I would say GooglePlus is the easiest and it is free.

Hi Ken, I have no idea what you mean.Do you mean hang outs? I want something that grandkids can replay to hear their grandparent's voices whenever they want. Does Google plus do that?

Yes, when you connect it to youtube.
I guess I need to do another training on that.

sounds like something I definitely need to learn! Is there any way just to do audio and not the video?

Yes there is a setting inside G+ to do just voice, no video.

I guess I'm not very familiar with G+, I've searched all over it since you mentioned it and I can't find where I'm supposed to look. Could you give me a few pointers? thanks!

Another training? Where's the training on this now?
Come on Ken, don't tease us.

I purchased the .net, .org and .ca domains along with my .com. what do you do so that if someone types in for example yourdomain.org it redirects to your .com site?

By the way, the question you asked about a .org redirects to your .com only if you own both and set up the redirect. A simple redirect is frowned upon by Google - but a solid article keeping 100% within the content and relativity of "who you are within the website name" will be just fine with Google, but to simply redirect for the sake of owning the same base domain with different Dot whatevers - that can get you in trouble with Google. Google likes unique, content relative articles or information and yes, you can have within the content of a paragraph and word that is Hyperlinked to your .Com site or Money Site or Wherever you want to direct the visitor.
Okay... enough of me for now!!

Thanks for both your replies, excellent information and helping me to scale this enormous learning curve!

I didn't know google frowned upon redirects. This is great advice. Thanks. Glyn.

Greetings, and if I can share a concept or two. I've been online since the mid 1990s and played with domain registrations from many different angles... and by no means am I the professional or expert, but I've been there and done that for sure.
Dot Com is what the net started with and today, you can virtually have a Dot "something" for almost everything!!
I believe that the most important aspect is "content" and "relativity". Keeping these two as your primary mandatory objective, you will be in an excellent position to Keyword/Niche/Build a site and Promote as best you are able. There are many theories regarding PPC (Pay Per Click) CPA (Per Aquisition) and many other ways to get your site in front of people. Utilizing your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest along with Google + are also favorable possibilities - but most importantly is being honest to your niche and finding Keywords that can give you the most favorable opportunity for Google Ranking.
I went so far in the mid-1990s as trying to say: It the Internet wanted Dot Com so much... It would've called itself the Intercom! I did this because my very first domain name was taken as a .com two weeks before I made my $35 purchase back in the day. I was furious because I wanted that name for several months and was stuck on learning how to build a website as opposed to securing my domain. Hind-sight is always 20/20.
Best of luck to you in 2015... you can make it with almost any DOT something... as long as your content is relative to your domain name, keywords SEO and niche. Video tutorials or informational types are always very good (be sure to keep them under 5-minutes - we don't have an attention span anymore... :)) and if you start with Google+ they will automatically migrate (through Google) to your YouTube channel (assuming you have one - if not, please set one up.)
Any way - this is a gigantic topic... but I hope I didn't chew your ear off too much!!

Hi J'anne,

I think this is an excellent idea of buying up all the domain extensions so your competitors don't buy them and try to compete with you.

I would only focus on using the .com one though. It's not good to have a bunch of redirects because Google doesn't like this. Try and keep things simple when first starting out.

Scott

In my opinion there was no need to buy 4 domains. I would suggest you to work on just one (preferably .com) and forget about the others. Make it simple, don't bother with redirections.

oh, ha ha, too late. I was watching some of Kyle's training about buying domain names and he was advocating buying the .org or .net domains if .com wasn't available, and I really don't want some competitor buying my domain name with a different extension.

Given the low cost of domain name registration, that's an excellent way to go. Having all the names for your own keeps any future competitor from diluting your brand ID.

You can do this with the domain name provider. I have personally redirected .org, .net and .ca website names to my .com site. It may depend on the domain name provider. For those purchases I used GoDaddy and it was an easy process to do that redirection. I don't know if the same service is available at namecheap, though.
Hope this helps and best wishes. Glyn

Glyn, I can't tell if you can do that at Namecheap unless you are using their nameservers. I've never personally tried it. Their tech support may have a way to do it for people who are using other nameservers.

Janne, You should probably check with namecheap support to see if they can help.

thanks Bob, all my domains are with GoDaddy :)

I called Godaddy and asked them to do it. That's it

Oops, my mistake. I thought that you had your registrations at Namecheap since Glyn had mentioned them..

You can easily do it online if they are with GoDaddy - that's what I did anyway, and it works in a flash!

You would need to build a website with each name to do something like that. You can not just direct a domain name to another without a site behind it.

ok, like one page that no one sees, because it automatically directs?

you can do that

From what I've seen, the recommended way to do this is by adding a 301 (permanent) redirect line in the .htaccess file for each of the sites you want redirected to your .com site.

Here's an excerpt from article on the process:

"301s Are Google Approved and Visitor Friendly

301 redirects are at the top of Google’s recommendations for redirecting visitors. Furthermore 301s are the accepted industry best practice, and should be honored by all other search engines as well. They are also honored by browsers, web crawlers and other tools — anything that supports HTTP 1.0 will support them. In the year 2011, that is everything, possibly including your refrigerator.

301s also have the added benefit of being extremely fast, cutting load time drastically. So they’re not only easy to put in place on your server (one rule should do it!), but are the fastest and most compatible solution."

Source: http://www.ateamsystems.com/tech-blog/using-301s-to-redirect-visitors-between-domains-seo-friendly/

thanks Bob, I appreciate you giving me the details, now to figure out how to do it as it's a bit above my skill set at the moment!

The line of code that goes into the .htaccess file for your .org and .net sites is:

Redirect 301 / http://mysite.com/

Adding that line will cause any access of the .org or .net site (represented by the first /) to be redirected to the .com site that's listed.

I believe they are all each separate entities. The only thing I can think of is by using a redirect page but to me that would be a shame because you have so much real estate to deal with so why not use it all to your best benefit.
