Why do my Carpet (Rug) runners curl, wrinkle and move around?

Primary reasons for problems with rug runners for Home Decor use.

    Most rug runners that are sold by the foot were actually designed for stairways. They are usually a flat-weave construction and were designed to be tacked or stapled in place. Many people try to use these type of rug runners on the main wear areas in foyers and hallways. This seems like a good idea, especially if you have a good wall-to-wall carpet that you are trying to protect.

    The problems that arise from using a flat-weave over carpet are due to the fact that they were not designed for this purpose. When you choose a runner to take most of the abuse from foot traffic in your home, you need to choose a runner that is NOT a flat-weave. A standard cut-pile area rug runner is the best choice for this type of application. Choose a runner that has a standard heat-set backing, and most importantly, choose a runner that has substance. When I say substance I mean that the rug runner should have enough weight to allow gravity to keep it in it’s intended position. A twelve to fourteen mm. density is usually perfect for such a purpose. A better quality rug runner will not wrinkle or curl the way that a flat-weave does, however, most rugs or runners will tend to crawl (or travel) in the direction of the carpet nap. If your rug runner has substance and proper backing, it will not move around much. A few inches per week under normal traffic (not nearly as much as a flat-weave runner).

    It is my opinion that Wool is the best kind of rug or runner for indoor use and there are a multitude of color and pattern choices that will fit your home decor and offer much better performance than a synthetic fiber flat-weave rug runner. Shopping for a good quality rug runner on the Internet will usually afford you the best quality rug runner for your money by cutting out the high mark-up of most retail stores. I have selected some of the better deals I have found online on my web site and I will try to add more runners to the selection soon.

Wads of Cash in Your Pockets, and Never have to Apologize

Help other people make money and you never have to feel guilty.

    Some people think that if they make a lot of online money, they will have to feel guilty about it. However, if you are sincere in your efforts, and truly desire to help other people, you will never have to apologize. Seek out every opportunity to share business opportunities with people. Some Christians believe that God does not want them to be rich. This is not true. He simply wants us to be more Spiritually Rich than we are Physically Rich. If you approach what you share with others with a servants attitude, you can have wads of money, and still be found righteous in the eyes of God. In fact, many of God’s greatest men of Faith were also greatly Blessed with abundance.

    I would like to share an opportunity with you, in hopes that it will enrich your life and your lifestyle. I like to take advantage of affiliate opportunities, and I love to share the good ones with everyone I come in contact with. If you would like to get started with an online opportunity that simply involves sharing a web page with others, here’s your chance.

May God Richly Bless You,

Web Site Promotion – Controlling Your Information

Whether you have built your own web site, or you are promoting an affiliate site, the goal is always the same. You must get people to visit your web site in order for you to make money. There are a myriad of paid approaches to advertising that you can use. But there is one method that will produce more quality results than any other method, and it’s Free.

    To be truly effective, any web site promotion needs to address Search Engine Visibility, Content and Keyword reinforcement, gaining One Way Links and directing relevant Visitors to your web site. If you are just starting a business on the Internet, you will find that these elements are very expensive and time consuming to obtain using traditional methods of advertising. So you will need to be very picky about the way you promote your web site. Stretch your advertising budget as far as you can, and don’t pay for anything you don’t have to pay for. Don’t start right out with a PPC (pay-per-click) campaign or banner advertising until you have done some research and have a good pulse on your market. There are also better ways to spend your time and energy than trying to negotiate an expensive and time consuming advertising campaign.

    When beginning a promotion you need to make certain that your site content and keywords are unique and relevant to your product or service so that the search engines will give your web site a decent ranking. If you are promoting an affiliate web site your content and keywords are established already. But they still need to be reinforced by intentionally placing them in as many places on the Internet as you can, and have them point back to your web site. You have heard it said that "knowledge is power". When it comes to web site promotion, "information is power". It is better for you to control the information for your web site. When you have more control over the information, the better you can drive traffic to it. Here’s why.

    Whenever the average Internet user needs information on any subject, they will usually use a search engine to try and find it. They need to be able to easily find the information that you have intentionally placed on the web, so that they will be drawn to your site for more detailed information and an opportunity to buy your product or service. If you pay close attention you will see an online trend where most of the information that is on the Internet is designed to lead you to a web site. Someone intentionally placed the information on the web so that you would find it and be drawn to their web site. The information you are reading right now, is information that I have placed here especially for you, because I have an exciting opportunity to share with you. The ability to manipulate Internet information is a very powerful tool that you need to learn how to use. Even though this approach to site promotion has huge potential, there are not many people that are willing to invest the time that it takes to plant their own information. This can give you an edge over your competition. There is a method that allows you to control information in a very powerful way. But you must be willing to invest a little time and effort and use it wisely.

    When you understand how to control the information that surrounds and supports your web site, you will understand the power you have to take control. You can take control of your promotions and advertising, and wield that power to drive traffic directly to your web site. The method you can use to gain influence over information is extremely simple yet very effective. I would like to share this strategy with you. I am currently writing a report that will reveal all that you need to understand and implement this ultimate web site promotion solution. Stop letting the search engines decide if your relevant and who they should send to your web site. It’s your web site and it’s time to take back control. The report I am writing will be complete in just a short time so be sure and register for your Free Copy. The information in my report will open a new world of opportunity for you. Are you ready to take control?
