40 Timeless Ideas for Attracting More Visitors to Your Website

Here are 40 of my favorite timeless ideas for attracting more visitors to your website.

You can bet the farm on these. They’ll be as effective in five years as they are today. The latest social media fads may come and go, but some strategies for attracting a visitors/audience online will always be in style.

Make Your Content Irresistible

  1. All the promotion in the world won’t build a thriving audience if your content sucks. Truly incredible content, products or services can be your best marketing tool. Everything you do online has to start with creating something incredible.
  2. Don’t be afraid to say what everyone else is thinking that not saying. Other people are probably thinking about it too, and they’ll love you for being brave enough to say something.
  3. Write epic shit.
  4. While you’re at it, make a real case for why the world should actually give a shit about what you have to say.
  5. Put your words in a different format. Go visual. Try creating an infographic or a SlideShare presentation.
  6. Go big. Write something so incredibly thorough and valuable that people are compelled to share it.
  7. Interview someone exciting. You’ll learn something and the interviewee will probably share your session if you do a great job.
  8. Learn how to create a viral post, and try creating one yourself.
  9. Cut out the fluff. Publish when you have something worthwhile to share, not when your calendar says you’re supposed to publish.
  10. Headlines! Headlines! Headlines! They’re ridiculously important. Enough said.
  11. Give away your secrets. All of them.

Take Your Show on The Road

  1. Be everywhere. Make videos, create a podcast, represent on different social media platforms.
  2. Write guest articles for other blogs. This is still one of the most effective and underused strategies for building your own audience. Just do it and stop making excuses.
  3. Join Help a Reporter Out (HARO). Do a good job and you might just end up on the front page of Yahoo.

Make Your Case Clear

  1. When someone comes to your site, you have to answer the question they’ll be asking themselves: “why should I spend any time on this site instead of one of the dozens of other sites I already know and love?” You have to answer this question quickly, clearly and compellingly. Your Unique Selling Proposition is the key to making your case. If you don’t have a USP, it’s time to get one. Start with our guide to finding your USP.

Keep Them Coming Back

  1. The best audience is a captive one. Instead of constantly relying on other sources of traffic, create your own by getting your visitors to subscribe for updates from you (focus on email first, social media second).
  2. Directly ask people to subscribe once in a while. Tell ’em what’s in it for them.
  3. Create special subscriber-only content.
  4. In your welcome email for new subscribers, point them to your social media profiles so they can connect with you in different ways.
  5. Optimize the heck out of your email sign-up offer. Try placing email sign-up boxes in different places (in your header, sidebar, within posts, end of posts or footer). Try changing the wording, button label, call to action and offer. See what works best over time. Just keep the best interests of your audience in mind and don’t do anything you don’t appreciate yourself.

Make it Pretty(ier) and More Functional

  1. Your site’s design matters more than you think. If you have a crappy looking design, you’re missing out because too many of your hard earned visitors are leaving before they read your incredible content.
  2. Design for function. What do you want your site to achieve? You want to hook your visitors and keep them coming back. Design with the end goal in mind.
  3. Use social proof. New visitors are looking for clues about whether your site is worth spending time on. Use validation (in the form of metrics, testimonials, “as seen in” logos, etc.) to reinforce your value.
  4. Make it easy for people to share your content (try using a plugin like Digg Digg, for example).

Play Nice with the Search Engines (SEO)

  1. Optimize your headline and content URL for the search engines. Use the Google Keyword Tool to find popular keywords. Don’t worry about optimizing your content. Write for humans like normal but use keywords in your headline and content URL.
  2. Make sure your site is Google friendly. Offer a sitemap, use an SEO-optimized platform (or plugin) and register for Google Webmaster Tools.
  3. Focus on optimized content instead of link-building for long-term SEO success.
  4. Make your site as fast as possible. Site speed is now a factor in search rankings, and a faster site will keep more people from leaving before your page loads. Consider moving to a faster web host and leverage caching (if you’re on WordPress try using a caching plugin like Quick Cache).

Borrow What Works

  1. Innovation is important, but using proven formulas is smart and effective. Don’t be afraid to borrow from what you’ve seen work elsewhere. Try to figure out how other sites are bringing in visitors and try their techniques. Don’t copy directly, just tweak things to suit your own needs and audience.
  2. Your own successes can be borrowed upon as well. Look through your old content and think about your most successful strategies. Reuse what works until it doesn’t work any longer.
  3. Use past behavior to predict future results.

Organize Group Projects

  1. Organize a group writing project. Each blogger writes on a central theme, and each article links to all the others in the series.
  2. Start a social media promotion group. Invite people you respect. Each person can submit content for others in the group to Tweet, Like, etc. only if it’s a good fit. Organize this for free using Google Groups.
  3. Organize a group survey in your niche.

Make a Splash

  1. The best way to rise above the noise of the billions and billions of pieces of content being shared every day is to do something remarkable.
  2. Create a big ambitious group project and invite your readers to participate.
  3. Set a big audacious goal for yourself and report on your progress over the months or years it takes you to get there.

Launch a Product or Service

  1. Did you know that launching a new product or service can actually help grow your audience? It’s true. Launching a product also always leads to tons of interview requests, links from other blogs, partnership inquiries, and a different kind of respect from colleagues. Plus, because your new product will generate revenue, this should be top on your list.
  2. Offer an affiliate program and pay commissions to people who refer customers to your product. Reach out to these affiliates before your launch and offer to help them with content, interviews, webinars or anything else that will help them drive sales. You’ll be getting access to a whole group of customers you wouldn’t have otherwise.

Make Friends in High Places

  1. The most consistent source of highly desirable visitors you can tap into our links for other respected sites in your niche. To attract these links on a regular basis, you need to 1) create remarkable link-worthy content and 2) make friends with other great content creators who could link to you. Just don’t make connecting with people online harder than it actually is. Link out freely to content you admire and think your audience would appreciate. Linking out is one of the best ways to get noticed and start making friends online. Make sure you include the name of the site or content author you’re linking to increase the chances of the author learning about your link. Try creating a “follow Friday” or “link love Wednesday” type of post on a regular basis. It’s a great way to get noticed, make friends and share useful content with your audience.

Now, there are two things I’d love you to do.

First, choose three or more of the items on this list. Implement them in the next day or two. Come back here and report on your success.

If you’ve already tried some of these strategies, let us know below which are your favorite.

Next, I’d love to also know, what would you add to this list? What are your favorite timeless ways to attract more visitors to your website or blog?

Tell us below in the comments. And don’t forget to put some of these into practice today. An action is what this is all about, after all.

How To Add Estimated Reading Time In Your WordPress Posts

Have you notice how many people visit your post and how many people stay at your post for a long time. This is not a function of WordPress it is possible by a plugin. Nowadays most people using this plugin to check the timings of visitors that they are spending on your posts.

However, you can still add that feature on your WordPress site with the help of a plugin.

So, in this post, I’ll show how you can add the estimated reading time feature on your WordPress website, just like Medium.

Should You Use Time to Read Feature on Your Website?

Think of the following:

  • Checking the time left to get in touch with the support staff of any product or service
  • Using GPS to check the time left to reach your destination
  • Checking the total time of a video or movie

If you notice carefully, one thing is common in all the above – TIME.

No one wants to wait for anything, isn’t that right?

The same is also applicable when we are reading articles. We want to get the solution to our problems as quickly as possible.

This is where the reading time feature comes in handy and thus, will help you to:

  • Increase engagement on your site
  • Reduce Bounce Rate

At the end of the day, you can always test what works for you. Add it on your site and check the results whether it is helping you or not.

How to Display Reading Time in Your WordPress Posts

The concept of reading time is very simple.

Let’s assume that an average adult reads 250 words per minute. So, the reading time of a 1500-words article will be the number of words divided by 250, which is 6 minutes.

Of course, you don’t have to calculate the read time of all your articles manually. There are many WordPress plugins available on the web that will do this job efficiently.

The one I can recommend is Reading Time WP.

It is a simple plugin which does its job in a great way. You can display the read time in your posts and pages automatically as well as manually (using shortcodes).

Step 1: Install the plugin

After you log in to your WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins -> Add New.

Now search for Reading Time WP in the search box present in the top right corner. Once you find it, install and activate it:

Step 2: Setup

Once you activate the plugin, it will automatically add the read time feature on your posts. However, you can certainly turn it on/off from the settings page. Also, you can make other changes as per your wish.

Let me show you how to do it:

Go to Settings -> Reading Time WP from the left sidebar panel.

Here, you can change the text that appears before and after the time. You can also change the average reading speed which is set to 300 by default.

You can also decide whether you want to insert the reading time into your content and excerpt. Just check/uncheck the options you like and do not forget to save the changes by clicking on the Update Options button.

Now, let’s check out one of our posts with this feature:

You can also display it manually with the help of the following shortcode:

[rt_reading_time label=”Reading Time:” postfix=”minutes” postfix_singular=”minute”]

Step 3: Style the Text (Optional)

This plugin adds the read time in plain text, whether you choose to do that automatically or using shortcodes.

So, how can you style it so that it stands out from the rest of the content?

Well, you can do that with the help of CSS.

But before making any changes, do not forget to backup your files.

Once you are done, just go to Appearance -> Customize and then click on Additional CSS. Now add the following code in the text area and click on Publish:

.rt-reading-time {
font: italic bold 16px sans-serif;
color: #009688;
margin-bottom: 15px;
}

Cool, isn’t it?

If you are familiar with CSS and want to style it on your own, you may check out this page where Jason, the developer of this plugin, has mentioned all the three classes that you can use.

For Advanced Users

In case you want to display the time to read feature along with other meta information like author name, category, and date, you have to edit your theme files and place the following code:

<?php echo do_shortcode(‘[rt_reading_time label=”Reading Time:” postfix=”minutes”]’); ?>

Note: Before changing anything, do not forget to backup your files. Also, if you are not confident, please contact your theme developer and ask them to help you.

Some Alternative Plugins

There are many alternative plugins that you can use to achieve the same. And hence I decided to list the best 3 alternative plugins in this article.

The good news is all of them offer some extra features along with reading time. So let’s check them out:

Swift Bar

Swift Bar is a clean coded and lightweight plugin that adds a sticky bar at the bottom of your posts. Not only does it display time to read, it also adds social sharing buttons and progress bar.

The following are the features you will find in the swift bar:

  • Category of the current post
  • Title of the current post
  • Author Name
  • Time to Read
  • Social Share buttons along with counters
  • Previous and Next Post links

Isn’t that cool?

Of course, you can turn on/off the ones you don’t like. Just go to the setting page and disable the features which you don’t want.

Worth The Read

Worth The Read plugin adds a progress bar that indicates how far the user has reached on the page. You can control the placement of the progress bar from the settings page. You also have the freedom of deciding whether you want to display it on your posts, pages, or homepage.

This plugin also allows you to add read time on your pages. You can enable this feature and decide where on the page you want to show it.

WP Time to Read

WP Time to Read is a premium plugin and has been developed by MyThemeShop Team. Though I don’t really recommend you to use a premium plugin for this feature, you may use this plugin if you have an extended membership of MyThemeShop or you are planning to purchase the same.

WP Time to Read is just like Worth The Read plugin. You can display the time and add a progress bar to your posts. Also, you can change the color of the progress bar from the settings page.

Note: While there are other plugins available in the WordPress plugin repository, I don’t recommend them because those plugins have not been updated for the last 2 or more years.

Endnote

I hope you enjoyed this article and found it helpful!

So, what are your thoughts on displaying estimated reading time in your articles? Do you think it will help in reducing bounce rate and increase engagement of the users? Please let me know your thoughts in the comment section.

Also, if you are aware of any other plugin that does the same, please share it with the ShoutOutForAll community.

And don’t forget to share this article on your favorite social networking sites. 🙂

If You’re Not Good At Writing How To Create Informative Blog Posts

How To Create Informative Blog Posts Even If You’re Not Good At Writing

Can you relate to this scenario…

You’re sitting in front of your computer, staring at an empty screen. The deadline given to you to submit the article is fast approaching, and you’re still fighting to start putting words down when you’re supposed to already be at the editing stage.

As you sit there, struggling to get started, a strange feeling of inferiority creeps in – before your own eyes, you see yourself transforming from a confident expert into a self-conscious amateur.

The good thing?

  • You’re not alone.

I used to dislike writing a lot. In fact, the thought of sitting down for hours and writing something that I didn’t even know if anyone would read was so demotivating.

Whenever I needed to write anything, I would procrastinate, thinking that avoiding the task would make it go away. Finally, the procrastination eventually led to lots of rushed writing during the 11th hour to meet my deadlines.

This usually resulted in substandard work.

However, my primary problem wasn’t about writing; it was about fear. I feared to make mistakes, I feared that what I wrote would sound stupid to the reader, and most of all, I feared that I would not be worthy enough to be called a writer.

My Fear Was Causing Me Harm

It sounds preposterous, but my fear of producing mediocre content made writing a depressing experience for me.

I even tried compensating for my fears – I’d use big, irrelevant words trying to “prove” I understood what I was talking about. Unfortunately, all that did was make me sound like a fake jerk.

But then one day, I came across a particular piece of advice that changed everything for me. It was the best writing advice I’ve ever come across, and the best writing advice I can give to you right now:

  • Write the way you speak.

What an emancipating idea!

That sounds so easy, right?

That single piece of advice helped me eliminate my fear of writing. No more using complex, unnecessary words to impress the reader. No more fear of being inauthentic. And most importantly, I didn’t feel the need to procrastinate anymore.

I could just be myself, relax, and write exactly what was on my mind.

Now, let me make something clear: Writing the way you speak does not mean you should write content that sucks.

It’s meant solely to help get rid of the mental barriers of procrastination and fear that prevent you from being a more productive and engaging writer.

Let me show you how to use the “write the way you speak methodology” to crush your insecurities and avoid sounding like a pretentious idiot…

1. Assume You’re Chatting With A Good Friend

Great writing is an interaction between the writer and the reader. So whenever you’re writing anything, imagine yourself explaining the topic to a friend who’s sitting next to you. Think of the easiest way you would explain this topic to them.

During that conversation:

  • How would you introduce that subject?
  • What kinds of words would you use to make the topic clearer?
  • What instances and real-life examples would you give to make them understand your topic?
  • How would you make your story more relatable?
  • What questions might they ask?
  • How would you wrap up that topic so they feel satisfied with the discussion?

Writing this way will enable you to write great copy that better engages your audience, is more interesting, more informative, and exists in a conversational tone.

Simply close your eyes and imagine yourself taking with your friend. As you do this, jot down the interaction. That’s all there is to it.

2. Relax And Be Yourself

By writing the way you speak, you will also naturally inject a little personality into your writing.

After all, you’re writing in your own voice using straightforward and easy to understand English, and in a tone that makes you sound more like a human than a textbook.

Now, mix that with a few well-placed personal and relevant stories, and you have the makings of an irresistible piece of copy.

Just remember to make it natural. Don’t say anything that isn’t true, relevant, or unnecessary to the conversation.

Stick to the topic at hand and let the words come naturally.

3. Use The Same Language You Use In Your Daily Life 

If you write the way you speak, you’ll be more inspired to use regular, everyday words that you would usually use in general discussion.

This prevents you from sounding like a show off using obtuse and generally confusing language that makes your readers roll their eyes in disappointment.

Keep your writing very clear and simple without using artificially magnified language.

A good rule of thumb: If your average reader would reach for a dictionary to understand a word, then you need to change that word.

You should not try to show off because all that will happen is you will embarrass yourself.

4. Throw Away The Rule Book And Just Write

If all the rules about writing styles, passive/active voice, punctuation, and proper grammar are contributing to your insecurities about writing, throw away the “rule book” for a while, and just write.

Some people try to be very meticulous about the whole writing process, and they end up very carefully selecting each word as they craft a piece of content. This results in a very unnatural tone and an overall piece that comes across as too boring and too technical.

Just forget about everything you know about “how to write well”. Focus more on writing down the major points of your idea in your first draft, and don’t worry about any other thing right now.

The editing stage is where you need to focus on the nuts and bolts of the piece. Notice any errors? Is there anything that could be changed to add more clarity? I guarantee there are some things that need editing, and here is where you should do that. Make sure everything is clear, crisp, and free of errors.

Once you’ve made those corrections, abandon the article and look at it again the next day with fresh eyes. You will probably see some things that need to be re-edited. Now is the time to go and do that.

5. Read It Out Aloud

One of the best editing strategies is reading your writing out loud.

When you’re doing this, every awkward sentence and piece of bad grammar will become apparent. When you “write the way you speak”, your words should sound just as natural coming out as they did going in.

As you read your writings out loud, pay close attention to those places that seem to trip you up and leave you a bit confused — some extra attention for those spots is required.

Here’s the rule: If a particular sentence or paragraph doesn’t sound well on your ear, you need to rewrite it until it flows properly.

Write The Way You Speak And Overcome Writing Insecurities

For you to become an excellent and proficient writer, you must first conquer your fear of screwing up or sounding stupid. Just learn to write the way you speak, and you’ll be able to dish out your first draft effortlessly.

Once you get used to that, you’ll find that you’re actually a great writer and you’ll be able to get more writing done quickly without feeling like a fraud.

This same writing process has worked for me for many years, and I’m convinced it’ll equally work for you if you practice it.

Just write the way you speak and the piece becomes a conversation instead of a lecture.

So instead of having a handful of students listening to a professor talk about something boring, you now have a handful of friends who feel like they’re involved in the conversation.

This is how we create rapport and build trust with an audience.

And when those two things come, many more good things come, too!

What do you think about this writing technique? Have you tried it before? Have you noticed any difference in engagement? Let me hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Like this post? Don’t forget to share it!

Golmaal Again FULL MOVIE HD 1080P HD 720p-Quality

[2017] Golmaal Again Full Movie Download 720p

The reviews of Secret Superstar are already out and it seems the film will catch the audience’s fancy on its first day. The makers of Golmaal Again will wait until October 20 to figure out the audience’s mood.

For Bollywood, the Diwali season is a guarantee of success. Most of the films released around Diwali in recent years have met with commercial success. The trend more or less continued even if two big ticket films released together.

Once again, two highly publicised films are clashing at the box office this year. While Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar is releasing on October 19, Ajay Devgn’s Golmaal Again will hit the screens the next day.

However, it’s not easy to write off Golmaal Again just now, because it’s a set franchise with a dedicated audience base. Over the years, all Golmaal films have made good money at the box office.

While Golmaal Fun Unlimited (2006) earned approximately Rs 30 crore, the second film in the series, Golmaal Returns, registered a business of Rs 51 crore. Golmaal 3 hit the screens in 2010 and earned more than Rs 108 crore.

Also, Golmaal Again has been allotted more screens than Secret Superstar, to begin with, and that will also make a difference in their total collection.

Both the films have different target audiences and that may make a difference as well. Bollywood doesn’t have a history of many successful children films. On the other hand, Golmaal may catch the festive flavor.

Golmaal (English: Chaos Again) is an upcoming Indian film directed and co-produced by Rohit Shetty. It stars Ajay Devgn, Parineeti Chopra, Tabu, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Khemu, Prakash Raj and Neil Nitin Mukesh. Golmaal Again is the fourth installment of the Golmaal film franchise and marks Devgn’s tenth film collaboration with Rohit Shetty. The production of the film began in July 2016 and principal photography commenced in March 2017 in Mumbai. The film is scheduled for a worldwide release on 20 October 2017.

Plot

Gopal (Ajay Devgn), Madhav (Arshad Warsi), Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor), Laxman Prasad (Shreyas Talpade) and Laxman (Kunal Khemu) move back to their old neighborhood in a new, palatial house. What they don’t know is that the house is haunted by a ghost, and later when they come to know about it, they become terrified. Will they be able to save themselves from this big problem?

Cast

  • Ajay Devgn as Gopal Kumar Santoshi
  • Parineeti Chopra as Priyanka
  • Tabu as Rukmini
  • Arshad Warsi as Madhav Singh Ghai
  • Tushar Kapoor as Lucky Gill
  • Shreyas Talpade as Laxman Prasad Apte
  • Kunal Khemu as Laxman Sharma
  • Prakash Raj as Sheru Bhai

4 Reasons | Why Blogging Is Much Better Than A Regular Job

Blogging Is Much Better Than Any “Regular” Job

Blogging is the best way to earn money in less time. Some masses think that blogging is a hard job as compare to other jobs but I would like to tell those multitudes blogging is very easy and we can earn good amount of money from these simple posts.

The money might be the reason you start, but what will motivate you for years to come will probably be something else.

It’s always better to know what you are getting into, so we want to share some of the reasons why blogging is much better than a traditional job.

Here is a list to keep you working on your blog and make your dreams come true.

1. You Can Work Anywhere you want

I start work when I get up… after a 1-minute commute (from my bedroom)!

I stop when I want.

I take a break and go shopping or head to the gym whenever I feel like it.

You guessed it. I work from home.

As a blogger, you can too.

The great thing about removing your attachment to a job and a location is the freedom it brings. Being able to work at home, or anywhere else you like, is usually the first thing that comes to mind.

I often work when I am visiting any different place, or even when I am on the road traveling. It does not matter. My laptop is my office.

Maybe you have young children or a dog that needs walking every day. Wouldn’t working from home make your life a whole lot easier (and cheaper – less fuel, less dog walker costs, etc.)?

That is just one scenario. I bet you have your own reasons why working from anywhere is pretty awesome.

Try it and you’ll know!

2. You Can Earn However Much You Want To Earn

One of the things that really used to annoy me when I was “working” for a living was begging for a small pay rise each year. It was always the same, no matter where I worked. Even if I had worked my butt off (and usually I did), I would still rarely get more than a few percent raise. That is just the way it works.

Of course, you can get a new job or shoot for a promotion, but this is harder to do and doesn’t happen that often.

With blogging and the online world in general, the control is all yours. Want to work longer hours, or harder and smarter? You can earn a lot more!

3. There Are So Many Ways To Earn Money

When you think of blogging, you probably imagine writing blog posts. But, if you want to earn serious money with your blog, you will have to diversify your income streams. This means increasing the breadth of what you do.

It also means facing lots of challenges and changes and adapting fast. But the benefits are huge.

You will never get bored with the “same old thing”. And, on top of that, you kind of get to choose what you focus on most.

No one is there to tell you what needs to be done, or what direction “the company” is focusing on right now. That is entirely up to you.

So, if you want to start earning more money from teaching what you know (because you love to teach), go for it! Or maybe you want to sell your knowledge as a service, helping other bloggers or small businesses to work with WordPress, social media, or anything else you are good at.

4. Blogging Never Gets Boring

Yes, you can choose what you want to do. But you will also learn like you have never learned before.

Blogging, and working online in general, requires such a varied skill set that it will blow your mind.

You need to learn so many skills to blog, including (but not limited to):

  • Running a website.
  • Writing blog posts.
  • Working with social media.
  • Using a variety of online software (images, email software, analytics).
  • Working and collaborating with people.
  • Managing, hiring, and outsourcing.

The things I need to learn and focus on seem to never end. In fact, as your blog grows and what you are working on changes, the list of skills you need to have grows and changes.

The next point is additional. You can say it is bonous for you hope you like it.

5. The People You Meet Are Amazing

When you are doing what you love, you tend to attract like-minded people. That is one of the huge benefits of blogging and working independently.

My whole outlook has changed, and with it, so has my circle of friends.

I now look for and hang out with people who understand how I think and what I do. As well as that, I love talking about new ideas, learning new things, and just being surrounded by people with passion.

When I was at my “traditional” job, it was usually the opposite. Sure, some people loved their jobs, but it was the exception, not the rule. And this is not an inspiring way to spend the majority of your life; bored and uninspired.

When you do what you love, your life will never be the same.

Sonam Kapoor

Year after year, fashionista Sonam Kapoor has made astonishing appearances at the Cannes Film Festival and this year was no different. The Bollywood belle didn’t fail to allure onlookers at the 70th Cannes film festival.

For yet another appearance, Aishwarya Rai looked elegant in a graceful green dress from Yanina Couture. The dress had beautiful layers and multicolored embroidery. The emerald color of the dress brilliantly complimented the diva’s eyes. Her make-up was on point and she looked like a goddess.

Ash yet again slew in a bold and beautiful off shoulder black dress from Ashi Studio and then once again stole the show at the red carpet in a bright red gown by Ralph and Russo.

Ash certainly made jaws drop during her sixteenth appearance at Cannes.

Amitabh Bachchan-starred Sarkar 3 is the latest victim of piracy as the full movie has been leaked online. Several sites are offering links to watch Sarkar 3 full movie online or download it for free.

Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, Sarkar 3 is the third installment of the popular franchise. It was released on May 12, and in no time, the movie has been leaked for viewers to watch it online or download it for free.

Sarkar 3 witnessed a slow start at the box office, and now the news of the full movie being available on the internet will certainly give shock-waves to the producers. Although the print is not of HD quality, it is good enough for people who would like to watch the movie sitting in the comfort of their house.

Even many people have been sharing the pirated links on social media. Piracy has been a major issue for Bollywood as almost each and every movie gets leaked online just after a day of its official release. Sometimes, films are made available online even before the official release.

While the previous two installments of the series had received good response from the audience and critics, Sarkar 3 failed to impress the majority of the masses. Although Amitabh Bachchan’s performance has been well appreciated, it has been said that the movie lacked a good script.

With negatives reviews and poor word of mouth, Sarkar 3 has been struggling at the box office even on its first weekend. And now having been leaked online, this will definitely affect the movie’s collection even more. Moreover, SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 has still been running strong at the commercial circuits that further made things hard for Sarkar 3.

User Reviews

Political drama with dark overtones.

Note: Pls watch the Sarkar 1 and 2 for a better understanding of the story and characters.

The Sarkar franchise continues from where it left off in Sarkar-2 with Amitabh portraying the role of Sarkar, head of the most powerful family in Maharashtra’s politics. The plot revolves around the conflict between Sarkar and the unscrupulous builder lobby over a plot of land to be redeveloped.

After the death of both his sons, Sarkar is shown to have aged but is certainly not down and out.He is now ably supported his 2 lieutenants Gokul (Ronit Roy) and Raman (Parag) who is mute. His grandson Shivaji (Amit Sadh), Kay Kay Menon’s son (who has been bumped off by Abhishek B in Sarkar1) comes backs into his life and things take a turn for the worse.

Twists in the plot: 1)Are Shivaji’s intentions Honorable or is he actually the vengeful son who has turned up to avenge his father’s death??

2)The other twist is when Gokul is coerced into joining the enemies of Sarkar by exploiting his insecurity after Shivaji’s entry into Sarkar’s life and the irresistible offer of having Sarkar’s position and status in Maharashtra’s politics. Has he actually turned traitor or is he still loyal to Sarkar & working covertly for him??

The plot moves through these ever-changing twists and turns before the truth is finally unveiled in the climax.

Cast: Amitabh as Sarkar is amazing & gives a restrained performance, delivering shock value exactly when required. Awesome screen presence!!!

Ronit Roy is also great as Sarkar’s right hand who controls everything behind the scenes without too many dialogues, mostly conveying his emotions through his eyes only.

Amit Sadh plays his part to the T, as an impetuous & reckless young man, trying to prove himself a worthy successor in the eyes of his grandfather.

Yami Gautam as Sadh’s girlfriend has a chilling, unblinking, vengeful look throughout which gives you the creeps. This could’ve been better exploited … alas !!

Manoj Vajpayee’s character of a power hungry politician could’ve been better to make a substantial impact on the film. Not bad but a bit too loud !!!

Jackie Shroff as the dog cum crooked businessman mouths cryptic dialogues which can rack your brain all night long…if you try to make sense of them, is funny to say the least !!

Verdict : Most of the film hovers in the dark . This darkness has been used effectively along with the “Govinda Govinda” background score to jolt you throughout the film. The Ganesh aarati song by Amitabh is great and is the only song in the whole movie.

The climax is worth waiting for and the twists and turns in the plot keep you firmly grounded to your seat.

Well directed by Ramgopal Verma, albeit with a few loose ends as far as some of the characters go. Not bad at all .

Watch it if you are a fan of the Sarkar franchise. I can assure you that the characters will keep you thoroughly engrossed.

Apple Iphone 6 Big Discount Sale Buy Now Maximum Price Off

In what can be considered as the biggest discount yet, an ongoing Flipkart iPhone 6 exchange offer that brings down the price of the smartphone’s 16GB Space Grey to as low as Rs. 9,990. The Flipkart iPhone 6 offer provides up to Rs. 22,000 discount on the 16GB Space Grey variant, making it possible to buy the device under Rs. 10,000 when one includes the Rs. 5,000 flat discount being offered alongside.

The Flipkart iPhone 6 exchange offer is accompanied with an extra 5 percent instant discount on Axis Bank Buzz Credit Cards as well. As we mentioned, the e-commerce site is offering a flat Rs. 5,000 off (13 percent) on the iPhone 6 Space Grey 16GB variant, and is selling it for Rs. 31,990. The company is also touting an additional Rs. 2,000 off on regular exchange value under the Flipkart iPhone 6 exchange offer.

Flipkart’s iPhone 6 offer provides up to a maximum of Rs. 22,000 discount on the exchange of old phones. This discount varies depending on the model, but we discovered that exchanging the iPhone 6s garners the maximum discount (Rs. 22,000). However, it is unlikely that anyone would exchange their functional iPhone 6s unit with 3D Touch for a two-year-old iPhone 6 that has been outdated for quite some time.

Other models, such as Moto X Play, Xiaomi Redmi Mi 4, OnePlus One, and Asus ZenFone 2, get discounts of Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 6,000 as part of the Flipkart iPhone 6 exchange offer.

The iPhone 6 16GB Silver variant has not got the Rs. 5,000 price cut and is available for Rs. 36,990. However, the exchange offer is applicable offering a maximum of up to Rs. 20,000 discount. The iPhone 6 was launched in 2015, while the latest phone from Apple is the iPhone 7. Flipkart is offering an exchange discount of up to Rs. 20,000 on all of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models.

The big highlights of the iPhone 7 are that the base variant has been bumped up to 32GB, the physical press of the Home Button and the 3.5mm audio jack have been removed. The larger iPhone 7 Plus also introduced a dual camera setup for the first time.

Flipkart is hosting another Apple festival, which will end on July 10. One of the top deals being advertised on Flipkart is the Apple iPhone 6 at Rs 29,990. The iPhone 5s is also available for Rs 18,999, although the latest iPhone 7 has only marginal 7 per cent discount, and the iPhone 6s is at Rs 44,000 with another Rs 20,000 off on exchange.

There are some deals on the Apple authorized accessories as well and discounts on an older MacBook Pro, MacBook Air (8GB RAM+128GB storage) with another Rs 7000 off on exchange for Mac buyers.

Of course, users will be most interested in the iPhone 6 offer. Technically the deal on the iPhone 6 is this: The price without exchange is Rs 27,990, but if you are exchanging it with an older device you can get up to Rs 24,000 off on exchange. Additionally, Flipkart is giving Rs 4,000 off on regular exchange value, which will bring the price to Rs 23,990 under the exchange. There’s also an extra 5 per cent off on Axis Bank Buzz Credit Cards.

Technically if you’re buying the device on the exchange, the phones likely to fetch the highest discount are iPhone models higher than the 6, which makes little sense. Older higher-end phones have a better potential for those looking to get the new iPhone 6 with the exchange if you want a higher discount.

So should you buy the iPhone 6 or even the iPhone 5s? The iPhone 8 will launch in the next seven months or so, which will technically make the iPhone 6 that was launched nearly three years back. Essentially you’ll be paying for Rs 25,000 plus for a device with outdated specifications. Onboard storage space is also limited to 16GB, which is an important consideration. But this doesn’t mean performance will be a problem on the iPhone.

Also read Apple iPhone 7 review: This phone still sets the benchmarks

At Rs 25,000 plus, it is possible to get phones with newer specifications and a better battery life. Options in the list include OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T; the latter sports the latest Snapdragon 821 and a bigger 3600 mAh battery, but is slightly more expensive. The ZTE Nubia Z11 is another good phone, though priced at Rs 29,999. Asus Zenfone 3 series has phones in the Rs 25,000 range and even lower, some of which sport good battery life. Samsung’s Galaxy A9 Pro, Galaxy A7 2016 are also options in the Rs 25,000 range, as is the Moto Z Play.

But are there any advantages to the getting the iPhone 6 over these phones? If you’re planning to upgrade in the next six months, then the iPhone makes for a better buy. An iPhone’s exchange value will always be higher compared to any other phone company on the market, no matter what the specifications. Just go and compare exchange discounts with any other phone vs the Apple iPhone on Flipkart; the latter will always fetch a higher discount.

If you are on an iPhone 4s or iPhone 5s and have been using an iPhone for a really long time, and don’t want to leave iOS, the iPhone 6 is a good option. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, A8 chip comes with an excellent 8MP camera, which can put most of the competition to shame. But the iPhone 6 doesn’t have OIS, while the iPhone 6 Plus does, which is better for low-light shots.

If you’ve been wanting to get an iPhone for a while now, and don’t want to pay Rs 40,000 plus, the iPhone 6 is a deal to consider. But for those who need a fast phone with a good camera, remember the iPhone is not the only option anymore.
