Learning and having the skills today about Computer General Knowledge can be very difficult for some people. I don’t know how basic to get here, but let’s start at the beginning. In terms of what you need to know and what you do not, it depends on what you will use the knowledge for.
For example, I drive a car every day, but I could not in general terms explain how an engine works. I turn on the air conditioning when it gets cold, but I can not explain how a compressor works.
And so on. We all use things every day and we cannot explain how they use. Add in smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers in today’s jargon and you have even more things I would put in the need to know category.
So what is good computer general knowledge to have?

This is a tips blog on making money on the Internet. So, let’s look at computer general knowledge as it relates to making money on the Internet.

2. Search engine. Although there are many we mostly use Google or Bing.
Today people search for things in a more complete way. In the old days, we typed in a short keyword or phrase such as “make money” and Google delivered its top results.
Now we are more specific. We might type in “how to make money on my smartphone without spending any money”. Again Google will do there best to give us the best results.
One other key point. We know use websites such as YouTube, Facebook, and Amazon as search engines to help users find what we are looking for. These are competitors to Google and Bing.
3. SEO optimized. How can we get our content so Google ranks it?
Search engine optimized, or SEO optimized is our attempt to do that. We look at ranking factors from Google and try to use those so we rank for a specific keyword phrase.
This is no easy task. Google has over 200 ranking factors and updates their algorithms over 600 times per month.
4. Word processing. To be computer literate you need to be able to put together words in an email, document, blog post, web page, etc.
You should know how to use proper grammar and spell check your work. Other things might include headers, creating tables, or even adding images.
Luckily there is a software to do this. If you blog like I do a good theme such as WordPress pretty much does this for you.
5. Blogging. I add this because it has become the most common way for someone to establish an online presence.
WordPress is the tool most often used for this. WordPress is an online, open-source website creation tool written in PHP. Do we care what PHP is? Most of us do not.
What we do like is how easy it is to set up a website with WordPress with very little to no technical knowledge.
6. Email marketing using an autoresponder. Over 4 billion people in the world have an email account.
Email marketing is sending out promotional messages to these emails in an approved way that does not spam them. An autoresponder is a tool that automatically sends an email message to up to thousands of people at a time.
7. Social media. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn and so on. These are the big ones.
We can now easily interact with people via smartphones, tablets, laptop computers and desktop computers. You can control how you do that with apps and in the settings of those apps.
8. Virus protection. One ad I see every day is PC Matic. This is a web-based and you do not have to insert a cd and download it.
Smartphones such as the iPhone have built-in virus protection. There is no need to buy anti-virus software.
9. Landing page. I add this here because so many Internet marketers send traffic to a landing page.
The goal here us to capture an email address and put that into an autoresponder for future follow up.
Once that is done the visitor is sent to the website where they can look for what they came for. Many hosting companies and autoresponder companies offer templates to use as a landing page. Websites such as Lead Pages do a great job with many additional tools to complement the page itself.
10. Making money on a computer. You will want to study business models as there are so many different ways to make money.
I talk about a lot of these on my blog. Check out my make money tips category to find hundreds of ways to make money.
