Sunday 3 October 2010 10:43 pm KCS-content Show Comments ▼ SUPERMARKETS are set for a showdown this week as Tesco, J Sainsbury and Marks & Spencer post interim results. Smaller retailers Ted Baker, Halfords and Greggs are also due results, in a week that will indicate how the High Street has fared since the general election. Tesco is expected to post a 10 per cent rise in first-half pre-tax profit on Tuesday, as growth in its Asian operations offsets sluggish sales in the UK. Analysts expect Tesco to have improved since the start of the year. Evolution Securities predicted an 8.5 per cent rise in total sales last week but warned of slow growth in the UK thanks to lagging petrol prices and a lack of new branches. Sainsbury’s, Britain’s third-biggest supermarket group behind Tesco and Asda, is tipped to show stronger UK growth in a second-quarter sales update on Wednesday, helped by its strength in the more affluent south.Wealthier shoppers are also likely to prove a fillip for clothing, food and homewares chain Marks & Spencer when it publishes second-quarter sales figures on Thursday.The group is expected to post a fourth consecutive rise in underlying quarterly sales, though analysts will be keen for any news on profit margins amid rising cotton, wage and freight prices.Sales at UK stores open over a year are tipped to rise between 1.3 and 4.6 per cent, according to a company poll of 16 analysts, compared with first-quarter growth of 3.6 per cent.Bakery chain Greggs is expected to post small first-half improvements on Wednesday, making up for the rise in wheat prices with some sales growth. Analysts expect bicycles-to-car parts chain Halfords to report a drop in second-quarter underlying sales of 4.0 to 4.6 per cent on Thursday, exacerbated by teething problems at a new distribution depot, though they also think cost cuts will keep it on track to meet full-year profit expectations.Fashion chain Ted Baker is set to announce strong sales over spring and summer on Thursday, after posting its first growth in two years at the start of 2010.

in the "universal" era, in the online stores are not you feel shy to say hello, and others in this way, large and small sites everywhere, these small and medium-sized site, all suffering in dire straits, and some even have to stand on the brink of death, doing the last lose out. What causes so many websites to fail is the wrong strategy, unreliable teams, or not enough execution. Today, I know the six main factors that lead to the failure of small and medium websites:
1: not without aim, but as a goal,
know that there is a friend in Shenzhen, for a building materials company to do network marketing, the boss said to build the country’s most influential brand building materials, when my friends and I said, my first impression is not reliable, such people often imagine themselves only empty talk, growth scenario, by this man the website was born dead.
two: not without effort, but without perseverance,
I know in
is a typical example, when just learning SEO, built a website optimization for two months, every day is very hard to update the original content, to the platform of the chain, very good very exclusive, but the ranking does not see improvement, motionless for a long time, there are even signs of decline. At the outset, I doubt SEO industry, often have the idea to give up, but finally tell yourself, and then stick to it. Facts have proved that through the insistence of the final ranking came, the flow came, turnover has come. Thus it can be seen that the result of no perseverance is passing with success.
three: it’s not smart, it’s too smart,
it has "the slow need to start early. the classic quotations," a lot of people say that I am stupid, can not learn, but it is wrong, stupid people will think themselves very modest, on the contrary, smart people will easily take shortcuts, often go astray, the ancient Xiang Yu is a lesson.
four: not without energy, but to doubt their potential energy
know in accordance with the QQ friends, there is a signature is: people do not force a force themselves, will not grow. The website’s operation team is the same, not your team does not have ability, but you didn’t find these abilities and make good use of, people’s latent ability immeasurable, force a force will always be some.
five: not see the boundaries, but can not keep the bottom line
take SEO we do not say, can not tell what is the black hat SEO, but many people know that it is not normal, not advisable, but always can not help but want to touch it, so that the site to the brink of death, keep the bottom line will be very terrible.
six: not very confused, but can not resist temptation,
a lot of SEOER need to keep working hard when they know that a good website takes time
