Majestic Updates Backlink Tool – You Might Need To See This

Majestic has totally rewritten their crawler and have created an improved backlink reporting tool. It contains many useful features powerful tools that makes link researching easier, allowing you to focus on the actual link building.

For me, Majestic was more of a site auditing tool than a link building tool. So when I was asked if I was interested in trying a demonstration version of their new tool, I was a little skeptical.

I’ll get to the point: Majestic’s new version of their backlink checker tool blew me away. It’s ability to simplify the research part of link building, to take the chore out of it, is impressive.

More than a List of Links

One problem with link tools is that they give you a list of backlinks, but they are missing information about the context of the link.

Majestic’s new backlink tool quickly shows:

Where on the page the link is located (footer, content, navigation)

Whether there is surrounding text

How many outbound links are on the page and how many are internal or external links

The improvements are not limited to the above. There are more features that allow you to fine tune your backlink search in so many different ways.

Majestic Crawler Rewritten

Majestic has rewritten and completely updated their crawler. The crawler now divides every web page it finds into up to 40 segments. Majestic can not only instantly show a visual representation of links on a web page, but you can also use that information to find link pages with specific link densities.

For example you can filter to find backlinks with the lowest link density and that are dofollow. This can reveal article type opportunities.

By searching for higher link densities you will be able to find “links” pages, pages that link out to useful web pages.

Majestic Context Search

Majestic’s new Context search can find links with a specific context, such as a specific word close to the link.

You can also use the Context feature to find specific kinds of link pages, like Resources pages.

Link Density Charts

Majestic is dividing each web page into 40 parts.

Majestic then displays a Link Density Chart that visualizes the link density of the web page that a link is on. It also shows you (with a green line) where on the page the backlink is.

The Link Density Chart allows you to see at a glance whether a site represents a good link opportunity.

Here’s how Majestic explains the Link Density Charts:

“The width of a profile shows the Link Density in each segment, so a wider line means that the section of text is more saturated with links.”

Fine Tune Your Link Search

Wading through a list of poor quality links in order to find a handful of link targets is a boring chore that wastes time and money.

A set of features that elevates Majestic above other link discovery tools is the ability to segment links by different qualities.

Segmenting links is one of my link discovery shortcuts. Segmenting links allows you to filter out the low quality links and quickly discover the highest quality and most relevant link prospects.

Segment by Link Density

Segmenting by link density can help you avoid finding backlinks that are hosting too many links. By searching for low density link pages you can discover article pages. These represent link opportunities related to suggesting an article.

If you search for high density links you can quickly identify link resources types of pages. These are the kinds of pages that are useful for suggest-a-link campaigns.

Search for Backlinks By Topic

Majestic leverages it’s in-depth topical trust flow information to enable you to search by the topic of the backlink. This is a powerful way to search for a specific kind of topical backlink and avoid wading through long lists of irrelevant links.

Segment by Source URL

This is a powerful way to indicate a quality about the URL. For example, you can search for all .edu backlinks.

You can input a search parameter like .edu to find all the dot edu backlinks:

Or you can search just for backlinks that have the word “links” in the URL:

As you can see in the above screenshot, I input the word “links” into the Source URL tab (it is superimposed over a result in the above image) and it returned backlinks with the word “links” in the URL.

Is Majestic Link Researching Tool the Best?

I received no free pass and no free access to the tool. I was only granted access to a demonstration version of the tool where I could try out the new features with one URL. My review is unbiased.

I have used Majestic in the past. Their Trust Flow metric has always been useful for diagnosing backlink problems. That’s useful site audit feature though, not so useful for link building.

The new version of Majestic significantly improves it’s usefulness for researching backlinks. It is without a doubt a better backlink research tool than before. But is it the best?

Whether something is best depends on how you approach  link building. My way of building links uses the process of segmenting the backlinks into a group of sites I want links from.

Some tools can only provide a list of links with only a minimal way to drill down to the best links according to the features that you are looking for. Majestic appears to solve that problem.

Researching backlinks should not be time consuming. Majestic’s ability to segment links makes the research part of link building so much easier. That in turn will contribute to keeping you focused on the link building rather than the link research.

This new version of Majestic is an exciting new tool that is useful for link building or as part of a site audit toolkit. I am impressed!

What You Do When You Don’t Know…?


As a culture, I find we’re OBSESSED with quiz shows. Why? It’s a simple answer: we love to test our knowledge. We put value on intelligence. It becomes a literal competition to see who is the smartest. You can look beyond quiz shows and look at any standardized tests as further evidence of that. As much as I appreciate smart people, I’ve come to realize that the true test is not what you know, it’s what you do when you don’t know.

It’s how you overcome obstacles..that’s the real test of the mind. It’s easy to look at someone we think is smarter than us and feel inferior. The reality is none of us are born with any knowledge. It must be learned and attained throughout life. As writer David Foster Wallace said, “I have come gradually to understand that the liberal arts cliché about teaching you how to think is actually shorthand for a much deeper, more serious idea: learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think.” That’s right. We must learn how to think in order to learn because if we don’t, we’ll forever feel overwhelmed by any subject – simple or complex.

Let me posit it to you this way – how many friends or family members do you have that try their hand at something, rave about it, only to weeks or months later push it out of their lives completely. When asked, their explanation may be the infamous: “it wasn’t for me”.

Here’s a concrete example: I know plenty of people who start tennis, love it and see themselves become better and better. Then they hit a plateau. They can’t overcome it and thus stop playing tennis. The initial incline is evident in all areas both physical and mental. Those who quit as soon as they reach the first dilination from this upward trajectory are referred to as dabblers. They try their hand at it only so far as it provides reward for their efforts.

Here’s a reality check: in all disciplines of life, there will be plateaus to overcome. This is exactly where the notion of what you do when you don’t know comes in. What will you do when you stop improving? What happens when you stop seeing results? What will you do when the going gets tough? What will you do when you simply just don’t know?

The reason why many scrap activities, goals and projects altogether is because it’s far easier to quit. Quitting is the default action most people take unfortunately, and it’s rather sad. Often, you’ll hear people refer to someone as quitting on their dreams. And that’s exactly what it is most often.

But there are several strategies beyond giving up: mentors, books, online videos or articles, classes, groups…you get the picture. Usually, the harder the problem, the more you’ll have to employ a combination of those. Your ability to figure out what to do when you don’t know will impact how fast you’ll be able to work through those roadblocks. If you research solutions to similar problems of the past, discuss it with people deemed experts within those arenas, you can chip away at the problem. Just never give up – It’s not easy, but It’s that simple!

However, the real challenge is often that even those who overcome these hurdles are surprised by such hurdles whenever they come up along the way. If we look at a chart, we classified the first type of person as a dabbler, quitting at the first obstacle. The people who overcome these hardships but don’t see them coming, will eventually be decimated by their inability to foresee such roadblocks. With each breakthrough, they lose a certain amount of passion and energy because of the effort required in overcoming it.

In a way, it’s a combination of perseverance and patience.

So next time you watch or meet someone who knows a lot, rather than be intimidated, learn from them. If you don’t know something they know, it’s okay. Ask for clarity. Ask them to explain. People may try to judge you or demean you for the things you don’t know. Don’t give in to those taunts. You know things they don’t know.

Understand, I do value knowledge. But as you go through life, let your thirst for knowledge be a driving force, not a goal. Study your passions and execute them to the best of your abilities, and as time goes by, continue to get better because of what you’ve learned along the way.

As a start, focus on identifying how you learn best: is it visually, kinetically, or auditorily. This will help yield results faster as each of us have different ways we learn. Happy learning.

Lastly, here’s some quotes to both inspire you and reinforce the lesson:

“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with the problem longer.” -Albert Einstein

“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” -Winston Churchill

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” – Pele

“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.” -Anthony J. D’Angelo

“Change is the end result of all true learning.” -Leo Buscaglia

Do You Need Antivirus For Iphone?

However, before you close this tab and carry on your merry way, that’s not the end of the story.

Scammers, cybercriminals – call them what you want – know that it’s extremely difficult to write a virus that will compromise your iPhone. They also know that it’s far easier to trick you into handing over your password, ID information and payment details which, ultimately, is what they really want.

And this is why there are so many text scams, fake websites and dodgy links on social media. They’re becoming ever-more sophisticated, but modern “antivirus” software can help to protect you – even on an iPhone or iPad.

A lot of the time, these apps are protecting you from yourself! For example, do you use the same password and email address to log into lots of different websites? Millions do, but it is a massive security risk. Imagine that just one of those sites got hacked and it hadn’t encrypted its users’ passwords. Yours, along with others, would be available to the highest bidder.

What would then happen is what’s called credential stuffing: trying that email address and password combination in a bunch of other websites to see if they work.

Since you use the same password, the hackers might have access to your bank account or, failing that, another site where you’ve stored your payment details.

Installing a good quality security app on your iPhone can avoid this situation by remembering separate passwords for each of your accounts, and entering them automatically whenever you need to log in.

Ah, but iPhones do this anyway you say. Yes, but iCloud Keychain won’t sync those logins to your Windows laptop or any other non-Apple device you use. And that’s why a cross-platform password manager is so valuable.

Dominik Tomaszewski / Foundry

Here are some of the other things that security apps can do on an iPhone and iPad:

Warn you of potentially fake websites that might try to steal sensitive information

Warn you of dangerous links in messages and emails

Increase your privacy online by using a VPN like NordVPN.

Protect your identity by giving you early warning if any of your personal info is found on the dark web (or, indeed, the normal web)

Protect your photos and videos so only you can access them

It might still be called antivirus software, but even though it doesn’t block viruses on an iPhone, it’s still a very good idea to use it on yours.



What’s the best antivirus for iPhone?

McAfee Security

Norton 360: Mobile Security

Avast One

Avast One will be the most tempting as it’s free to use. Some features are either limited or locked away until you pay for it (read our Avast review if you want to know the details), but the free version still offers a lot for nothing. A subscription to Norton can be purchased for just one iOS device, but it’s better value if you go for Norton 360 Deluxe which covers any five of your devices.

McAfee Security works in exactly the same way and requires a subscription to at least one device. But again, opting for a subscription to McAfee’s Total Protection (which covers five or 10 devices) works out cheaper per device.


Can an iPhone get a virus?

Technically, yes. But the chances of an infection is extremely slim, unless you’ve jailbroken your iPhone. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry: your iPhone is safe. For a much more in-depth answer, go to our sister site, Macworld.


How secure is an iPhone?

Generally speaking, very secure. The biggest risk is you. If you fall for a scam asking for money and transfer funds from your account to the scammer, the security built into your iPhone isn’t much use. That’s why we still recommend installing security software which can warn you about dangerous messages and links.


Yep. For exactly the same reasons an iPhone needs it. It won’t actually monitor for or block viruses, but there are so many other threats that it can protect you from that it’s well worth installing one of the apps we’ve mentioned here.


What can I do to keep my iPhone secure?

Besides installing a reputable security app, keep it updated. Any potential vulnerabilities in iOS are usually fixed in the latest software update. This is one reason why you shouldn’t ignore the reminders that a new version of iOS is available.

It’s worth noting that Android phones can get viruses, so you have both an iPhone and Android, you should install an antivirus app on your Android phone as soon as possible. Here are the best antivirus apps for Android.

Most security apps, and certainly the three mentioned here, work across iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows and macOS, so it makes sense to install the same one on all your devices for convenience, as well as because it’s always the cheapest way to protect them. See our roundup of the best antivirus software for more recommendations.

And if you’re worried about apps using your device’s camera or microphone to spy on you, then remember that all apps must ask your permission to access the camera, microphone, your contacts, photos and other things.

So only tap ‘Allow’ when first prompted if you are sure you trust the app. And make sure you read carefully what an app is asking permission for when there’s a longer list.

What To Do When You Lose Your Tech Gear

After quickly checking the terminal and failing to spot my phone on the ground anywhere, I grabbed a stool at the nearby airport lounge, booted up my laptop, and began the arduous task of changing the passwords on all of my online accounts–from Gmail to PayPal to Twitter. But just then I heard a familiar ringtone emanating from behind the bar. Some Good Samaritan had found my smartphone on the floor minutes earlier and turned it in. My data, my identity, and my loved ones were safe–but only because I was lucky.

At that moment, I vowed never to repeat that experience. Since then, I’ve become a faithful custodian of my phone and all of my other mobile devices. Here’s how you can add serious security to your mobile gear, making it harder to lose, easier to recover, and less prone to exposing your personal data if it falls into the wrong hands.

What to Do If Your Phone Goes Missing

The best time to worry about cell phone security is now, before your phone disappears. By taking some sensible precautions, you can make your phone easy to recover, and even safeguard your data.

Losing a phone actually entails three separate losses: the hardware itself, the data on the device, and the security that you would normally enjoy by maintaining control over your data.

To minimize the collective impact that these losses can have on your life, you should address each of the three facets separately. First, take steps to make your phone recoverable, or at least easily replaceable, in the event that it goes AWOL. Second, keep an up-to-date backup copy of the data on the phone in a safe place. Third, make sure that nobody else can access that data if your phone gets lost or stolen.

Lock Down Your Phone

Nearly every cell phone on earth–smart or otherwise–has some kind of passcode protection built in, yet almost nobody uses the feature because it adds an annoying 3-second delay to the process of making a call. Well, get over it. Set a password–or an “unlock pattern,” if you’re an Android user. Do it now, and you’ll avoid worrying later on whether someone out there is reading through your e-mail or accessing your Facebook account on your lost phone.

Make Your Phone Recoverable (or Easily Replaceable)

The first step in taking the sting out of losing your mobile phone is to shell out a few dollars per month for handset insurance from your carrier. When you buy a new phone, do this at the same time. If you have a phone but haven’t yet signed up for insurance through your carrier, do so now. For a monthly fee of about $8 (for smartphones), the insurance will guarantee you a quick, free replacement if you lose the phone–and it will get you up and running if you do something silly like run over the handset with a motorcycle.

If you lose your phone in some mundane way, such as by dropping it under a coffee table, and you’re sure it must be nearby but you just can’t find it, you can call it from another phone so that it will ring until you can home in on it. If you frequently set your handset to silent mode, you can obtain any of several cheap or free apps (available for most smartphone platforms) designed to override the phone’s current settings and make it ring at full volume whenever it goes into hiding.

BlackBerry users have a number of choices as well. The best free option is Where’s My Phone, available from the BlackBerry App World store as a feature-limited version of a more robust paid app. With the free version, you can trigger a loud alarm via e-mail to help you find your BlackBerry. The $4 paid version adds more features, such as GPS location.

Another low-cost utility is Phone­Finder With Google Maps, which brings this functionality to Windows Mobile handsets. A text message to this $1.50 app causes PhoneFinder to kick on the ringer and transmit the phone’s GPS location to the handset that sent the SMS, giving you two ways to look for it at once.

Create a Smartphone Backup

The more extensively you use your cell phone, the more completely you de­­pend on the data it stores. So regularly backing up your phone makes sense.

Often the easiest way to perform a backup is by using a cable connection: Most smartphones–including models ranging from iPhones to BlackBerrys to Palm WebOS phones (including the Pre) to Windows Mobile devices–come with syncing utilities that are de­­signed to create a complete backup of the phone’s contents. Thanks to those programs, if you sync your phone regularly, you should always have a recent copy of your files, contacts, messages, and photos safely stored on your computer. Do this religiously.

Adopt Advanced Security Measures for Your Gear

If you want protection across multiple smartphone platforms, your best option is TenCube’s WaveSecure. Available for Android, BlackBerry, Symbian S60, and Windows Mobile phones, WaveSecure provides as complete a package of protection as you can hope to have for a device that’s prone to wandering away.

WaveSecure also lets you remotely back up the contents of your phone to the secure server and then wipe all of your data from the device. So even if the phone falls into the hands of a thief, none of your personal information will be at risk. After removing the data, you can either turn the location information over to the authorities in hopes of getting your phone back (don’t count on it) or forget the stolen handset and use the insurance you bought from your carrier to purchase a replacement, and then download the backup of your data onto the new device.

Apple offers a similar tracking service, called Find My iPhone, for iPhone users. But you can get Find My iPhone only as a component of Apple’s MobileMe service, which costs a whopping $99 per year (or $149 for a four-user family pack).

Protect Your Laptop From Loss or Theft

Losing your smartphone is bad enough, but losing your laptop can wreak serious havoc in your life. When your PC skips out on you, not only must you cope with lost data and the risk of having your information compromised, but you must also replace the laptop, which can be an expensive proposition. I’ll explain how to improve your odds of getting your laptop back if it’s lost or stolen, and share a few tips for securing your personal and business data.

Record your assets: A cheap laptop may cost as little as $400, but many business users and gamers carry machines worth $1500 to $2000–or more. Re­­gardless of how much money you spent on your laptop, it’s wise to keep re­­ceipts related to your purchase, take a picture of your laptop, and register it on your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy. That way, losing your laptop won’t have to be a huge financial burden on top of all the unavoidable hassles you’ll face. (For more tips on dealing with insurance companies, see “Insurance Assurance.”

Back up often: If you haven’t been backing up your data as frequently as you should, don’t feel bad–just go do it. Do it now. Do it weekly. But don’t simply copy your files onto DVDs. Perform full system backups to a reliable, high-capacity external drive using Windows Backup or a similar backup utility. For a complete guide to using Windows Backup, see “Create Idiot-Proof Backups With Windows’ Built-In Tools.”

Install a Recovery App and Sign Up With a Tracking Service

If your laptop is stolen, you have about a 2 percent chance of getting it back. But your odds can drastically improve if you run a tracking and recovery app such as zTrace or LoJack for Laptops.

For about $60 per year, with tracking service, these apps hide in your PC’s BIOS and periodically connect to the Internet to report their location. If your laptop disappears, just contact the company to activate tracking and recovery services that will respond to a signal from your laptop and record its location with surprising accuracy, based on the IP address that it connects from.

Once either LoJack for Laptops or zTrace locates your laptop, the service will work with the appropriate law enforcement authorities to investigate the theft and reclaim your equipment. In addition, you can initiate a remote data wipe that immediately begins erasing everything on your hard drive in a manner that the local user can’t interrupt or override. That way, even if the police never find your computer, your data won’t fall into the wrong hands.

Protect Your Other Mobile Tech Gear

Laptops and cell phones aren’t the only devices that can cause trouble when they stray from their owners. Losing e-book readers, media players, GPS devices, portable hard drives, and even thumb drives can be expensive in terms of both replacement costs and data loss.

Most specialized mobile devices can’t run high-end tracking and recovery software, but you can make them less anonymous by labeling them with recovery tags. One approach is simply to print your name and phone number on a return address label and affix it to the device, but you may get better re­­sults from a professional asset-recovery service like StuffBak.

For about $10, you can buy a preactivated aluminum asset tag from StuffBak, preprinted with a unique ID number, StuffBak’s Web address and toll-free phone number, and a reward offer that gives whoever finds the device an incentive to return it. When the finder reports the device’s ID number to StuffBak, the company will arrange for a courier to pick it up and return it to you.

Portable hard drives can be particularly troublesome to lose, because you don’t want to share the data on them with the world. To protect your business and personal information, consider using a robust utility such as the open-source TrueCrypt encryption software to protect the drive’s contents from snoops.

Four Habits That Help You Avoid Losing Your Stuff

Losing things is easy. Getting them back can be tough. Here are four simple habits that can help you prevent losses and improve your chances of getting your gadgets back if you do leave them somewhere.

2. Label everything: Whether you use laser-printed return address labels or fancy professional asset tags, labeling your belongings gives finders a way to reach you and return the item. Most people are honest enough to be willing to help you if you make it easy for them to do the right thing.

3. Pack consistently: If you always store each piece of gear in the same place, you’re more apt to notice when something isn’t where it belongs. For instance, if you consistently put your phone in your inside coat pocket, you have a better chance of realizing that it’s not there as you leave a restaurant. Get into the habit of knowing which pockets your essential items live in, and you’ll be less likely to leave them behind.

4. Accessorize: Covering your smartphone in a flashy case may suggest that you look to Petulant Tween magazine for tips on style and aesthetics, but it’ll also make your handset catch your eye on a cluttered restaurant table. If you tend to leave things behind, sacrificing a little dignity in return for maximum visibility may save you headaches in the long run.

Insurance Assurance

First, be sure to keep records of all of your expensive purchases. Whether it’s a shiny new laptop or a portable projector, any device whose value exceeds your insurance deductible is worth recording on your insurance policy.

At a minimum, keep your original purchase receipt in a safe place, and record the product’s serial number along with it. You might want to take a photo of the device, too, and keep that picture with the receipt and the serial number. That way, even if you can’t locate exact model information later on for some reason, you’ll have a clear record of what it is you’ve lost.

For an industry that constantly deals with unforeseen events, insurance companies hate surprises. So call your insurance agent and arrange to add your devices to your policy. Giving the insurance company information about the date of purchase and the amount paid, as well as the model and serial numbers, will streamline the process of getting reimbursed if the device goes the way of the laundry sock.

Do the work early, and you’ll take a lot of the hassle out of the process of obtaining reimbursement for a stolen gadget.

9 Surprising Things You Can Order Online To Save Time

Everyone is familiar with the concept of ordering food for pickup, but the convenience doesn’t stop there. The pandemic changed the way people approach shopping, and many more services can now be ordered online to save you time. 

When you’re short of time (or you just want to avoid going into crowded stores, especially around the holiday season), check out these surprising items you can order online to save yourself time.

Table of Contents

Video Games at GameStop

No, we don’t mean ordering online for delivery to your home. You can actually browse your local GameStop’s inventory through the website or the mobile app and order games for in-store pickup. It’s an easy way to skip the process of searching through the store to ensure they have a title in stock.

Once you order it, the employees will gather your order and have it ready and waiting for you when you walk in. Just show proof of purchase (or pay if you haven’t already) and you can be in and out in under thirty seconds.

Girl Scout Cookies

Who doesn’t love Girl Scout cookies? Through chúng tôi you can find booths near you or simply order online. There’s even an app you can download to help you better locate the nearest source of Thin Mints for when you have those emergency cravings that nothing else will fill. 

Unfortunately, this trick only works when Girl Scout cookies are in season. The good news is that the website will tell you exactly how many days remain until you begin ordering Girl Scout Cookies. Think of it as a Thin Mint countdown timer, if you will.

Propane Tanks

If you’ve ever grilled up hotdogs and hamburgers on a propane grill, then you know the tanks aren’t the lightest things to carry. If you struggle to pick them up or you just don’t like the idea of carrying a propane tank in your car, good news: you can order them online.

Services like Cynch will deliver a propane tank directly to your home and take the old ones to be refilled. It’s an easy way to get tanks when you need them without putting in all of the elbow grease yourself. 

Fast Food

What can make fast food even faster? Not waiting for it to be prepared at the drive through. Almost all of the main fast food restaurants (McDonalds, Burger King, etc.) have mobile apps you can download and use to place an order for pickup at your local store. In fact, many offer rewards and discounts for doing so.

The team begins preparing the food as soon as you order it. After this, you just swing through the drive thru and pick up your food. No waiting required, and no chance that someone will misunderstand your order since you specify every detail of it in the app.


Few things in the world require as much time as shopping for clothes. Browsing the racks, trying on different sizes, and then making a decision can feel like it takes ages. The good news is that if you know what size you wear and what you’re looking for, you can order clothes for free pickup in Macy’s.

All you have to do is buy online and then you can pick up the clothes at your local store. It takes a lot of the stress out of the experience and lets you get in and out of the store fast — a major benefit, especially at this time of year.


At the height of the pandemic, many people were afraid to go into stores. Walmart, Publix, Kroger, and many other big-box stores opened up online ordering. You can order your groceries online and a team member will bring them to the front of the store for curbside pickup. 

If you’re on a budget, shopping for groceries online is a lifesaver. It helps you avoid impulse purchases if you’re hungry and lets you get in and out of the store quickly. The downside is that if you’re buying produce, you can’t choose the best pieces for yourself — you have to trust the team member will find the best ones for you. 

Christmas Trees

If you find yourself in need of a Christmas tree, but your vehicle is too small to transport it, chúng tôi can help. This service delivers Fraser Fir trees right to your door, and has been doing so since 2009.

The downside is that they only service the Chicago area, but it’s still a great way to buy a real Christmas tree without the mess and struggle of transporting it yourself. You can also buy accessories like a tree stand, wreathes, candles, and more. Maybe there’s a similar Christmas tree delivery service near you? 


In a time when most people work from home, your neck and shoulders probably suffer from all the time you spend in front of a computer. While going out for a massage might seem extravagant, proper treatment can be beneficial in reducing pain levels and even helping you sleep better.


Whether you forgot to grab a bottle or two of wine before a gathering or you need something to cook with, you don’t have to pile into the car to go to the liquor store. You can have alcohol delivered right to your home through Drizly. 

The service is currently somewhat limited and only serves a few cities that include Boston, Chicago, NYC, Dallas, Washington D.C., and several others. When you place an order, Drizly will deliver your favorite beer, wine, or liquor straight to your front door without the need to make a run to the store. Oh, and Drizly promises to deliver within an hour.

If you’re looking to save time, do a search to find out what you can order online. You might be surprised at the options that are open to you. Just be careful that the website you’re ordering from is legitimate and that you aren’t accidentally giving away personal information.
