What Acronyms Do We Use A Lot?

by admin Administrator 37 replies
Anybody know of more acronyms we use a lot around here?

For example I got these:

PLR

MRR

RPM

WSO

Just trying to think of some that are useful for this board...

Thanks,

Allen

    Nice, Allen... And here I was thinking "Redhat Package Manager" until I hovered over it.

    You can use that feature for more than acronyms, of course. Any words that many are unfamiliar with will work.

    You can always add WarriorPlus to the list!

          You should set the tooltip for PR to "Google PageRank", not "Google Page Ranking", as not to confuse the two. PR is a numeric value computed based solely on links, your "ranking" in search results is based on hundreds of dependent and independent variables.

          Speaking of which, SERPS (search engine result pages) is a good one as well.

            That was the way the vbseo people had it. I changed it...

              Ok, so how do we get the definition to show up as a "tool tip" / "mouse over" herein?

              I hope this all helps and Have a Great Day!

      Until joining this forum recently, I had never seen a single acronym from that first post, except RPM as the package manager. They sure are specific to the "make money online" crowd. Even webmaster forums don't use those labels. The little tooltips are valuable for getting accustomed to this place

      How about things like:

      Adwords
      CJ (Commission Junction)
      MLM
      CPM
      CPC
      PR (press release or PageRank?)
      viral

      I will add more as I think of them.
