FaceBook Addiction Disorder - The 9 Symptoms

facebook-addiction11I looked across the endless acres of a newly ploughed field towards the red horizon . The sun was setting in a crimson behind the hills across the river .. And then I thought suddenly 'STATUS! OH YEAH! IT COULD BE MY TODAY'S STATUS!' :p
Observing things and updating them as your status is one of the most common routine followed by most of the facebook users . Believe it or not , most of you facebook users are addicted to this routine . Lets talk about the usual routine every facebook user follows ; First things first : status updates , notifications .. checked them all ? Alright . Next step : Friend requests ! You accept a few , ignore a few . Next ? Comments! Oh yeah! [a name='more'][/a]I almost forgot mentioning about the comments . You like a few status updates , comment on a few , check a few photos , chat with friends and that's all . Your day ends here .
However , when you start following this routine every third or fourth hour , it is definitely termed as Facebook addiction . Facebook has become a source of hangout for most of the people who have their entire life dependent on Facebook . Their life revolves around what is happening on their walls . I wont blame them ; no one gets addict on his own . Facebook provides an endless range of games , puzzles etc. . But luckily , Facebook addiction disorder isn't any psychiatric disorder (when compared through its symptoms) . So what are the symptoms and where did they come from ? Lets check out !


What is Facebook Addiction Disorder?

facebook-addiction1Facebook Addiction Disorder (FAD) is a term introduced by US psychologists for those who are addicted to facebook and their life is really effected by their uncontrolled activities on Facebook . According to US psychologists the number of patients suffering from FAD are INCREASING! After US psychologists began their probe into FAD , millions of Facebook users – there are an estimated 350 million around the world – have admitted to being addicted . Hold on guys ! The post doesn't end here . We have some symptoms coming up as well ! :D
And this post seems to be contradictory to my last post on  [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/05/top-ten-reasons-why-i-can-stop-using.html" target="_blank"]Top Ten Reasons Why I can't Stop Using Facebook?[/a]  , doesn't it? :P

(1)  Howdy Facebook?!
Instead of having a fresh start with the tea/coffee first and newspaper in the morning , do you start your day with Facebook ? (Along with the tea/coffee that is :P )

(2)  I Am A Happy Man On Facebook Today!
You logged in as usual and you just saw that you got a dozen friend requests , a message and several notifications , you feel so happy , don't you ? :P

(3)  Are You On Facebook?
When you meet new people, instead of asking any sensible thing,you ask whether or not they have a Facebook account. And then you ask them to add you-The most common thing nowadays!

(4)  Social Guru Facebooker!
Your social activities are not the same as they were before. They have been reduced due to your time spent on Facebook, and attending events online is the most you can do.

(5)  Telling Everyone Everything..
Like I mentioned in my last post, Do your Facebook friends have to know every time you hangout and what you do?

(6)  Mode Of Communication
Is your only mode of communication with your family via Facebook?

(7)  Facebooking At Work And School?
Are you sick of your administration because your admin blocked facebook within the company/institution?

(8)  Lost Your Voice?
Have you become a mute since you no longer have to use speech to communicate on Facebook?

(9)  Want To Be An Insomniac?
Do you want your eyes to remain open so that sleep never sets in to interrupt your Facebook time?

So Are You Addicted?

facebook drugIf you answered “yes” to at least one of these questions , you definitely have FAD . Don't worry ! WE ALL ARE THE SAME :D
Let me tell you the fact that more than 6 billion minutes are spent on Facebook each day (worldwide) . That is twice as much as the time spent on Google . Now everyone cant be a psycho . Come on ! You are normal! :P

Top Ten Things I Hate About Blogger


Sometimes unusual errors are shown while uploading images, videos or even a complete blog post and some times maintenance is going on in blogger. This wastes the precious time of the bloggers.



10- Poor Customer Service


It is really difficult to get a solution to a problem from Google employees unless you Google it for hours whilst there are hundreds of developers working day and night to make Wordpress a better platform and their always present when asked for any technical help. 

Will That Make Blogger The Worst?

Of Course not! Blogger still is the best choice for people who wish to give a free start to blogging. The vast advantages of Blogger can be read here [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2009/12/wordpress-or-blogger-which-one-is-best.html" target="_blank"]Blogger VS Wordpress Comparison Chart[/a].

How To Make a Video Popular In YouTube?

[a name='more'][/a]

YouTube Statistics 2011

YouTube is the fastest growing video sharing website with the largest number of viewers all around the world . Lets have a look at the YouTube statistics :

The YouTube statistics ( [a href="http://www.youtube.com/t/press_statistics"]http://www.youtube.com/t/press_statistics[/a] ) as of February 2011 are:

Why was there a need to mention all the above statistics ? I mentioned the above so that you may take a sensible decision while uploading your video on YouTube just to grow your traffic . Just to let you know , there is a dire need of taking some sensible steps to grow your traffic via YouTube . So here we go :

1- First things first : Video Ranking & Views!

What is the use of your video if it doesn't have a good ranking ? Oh wait ! How can you increase your ranking ? Do you even know that ? So what can you do to increase the ranking of your videos . Well , as many subscribers your video/channel has ( consequently views ) , the more easier it will be to increase your ranking . Get as many likes and views as possible. ASK AND ENCOURAGE your readers to leave comments ! And reply to their comments . If everything is played perfect then naturally your number of subscribers will increase which is what you must pay more attention to.

2- Keep Video Titles Keyword Specific

You need to work on the video titles . Your title should be fitting and interesting . Titles with keywords that people are searching on will get more views. You shall put your keywords that will make your videos rank much better. Firstly , the keywords should be used in the video title , and then use them twice or thrice in the description of your video . In a nutshell , make your video titles easier to search . Understand the chemistry of the user ! Include as many specific keywords in your title and description as you can.

3- Comment On Other Videos With a Linkback

Next, comment on others' videos and leave a comment including a link to your video . Make sure you do it now . Got it? And if your comments are liked by the viewers , they will probably check your profile . Consequently , your videos too! :D

Now that’s the time when you add new people to your circle , by watching and commenting on videos of the people who are doing the same for you . This is the crucial stage as the number of views of your video increases resulting in an increase in your social media traffic . I hope it explains well enough .

4- Next make video responses

The next important thing you ought to do is to make video responses – Yes , video responses . Just go through the videos with pretty good high rankings and views . Make a video response . Why ? Because you are a newbie , and they are professionals , don’t care about how your response looks like .You just need to jump into their regular viewers . In this way , you will have some traffic driven to your videos . Again , as I mentioned earlier ,this will result in an increase in your viewers .

5- Video Time Duration

Keep in mind that the duration of the video should not be much longer . 3 minutes are perfect to present your idea . However , continuously ask the viewer to visit your website :P
This can be done by placing your logo or URL at the beginning of your video .

6- Choose Suitable Time To Upload Your Videos

Ever gave it a thought or just posted your video at any time ? If I post a video at 4 pm ,I don’t expect much views ,because no one is that free to watch my video at such a busy time . So yeah ! Be careful about the posting time . Instead , choose a suitable time to post your general video in weekdays . No one would like to sit back and watch advertising videos on weekends .

7- Create Better Quality Engaging Videos

Make sure your video is engaging . Plus , it should be informative so that the viewer completely indulges in the video and watches the complete video . Do not just present , present and present your idea in the video . Let people indulge in the video by making your video exciting and learning .

Your video should be a one which can grab attention of the viewers. Your video should have an appropriate colour scheme – Don’t go on recording your videos in bright pinks , purples etc.  Instead , cool yellow or blue would do . Keep suitable colours .


8- Make Your Videos Viral

And now , putting aside everything mentioned above , have you wondered how to promote your video in order to get traffic on your website? Well , make your videos viral , spread them to as many websites as you can . But make sure that the quality of your video is good


9- Have Patience

Last but not the least ; always take a proactive approach before planning to post your video . Your videos wont be successful just in a day . It will take a LOT OF time , so be patient . Your ranking will increase slowly .

I really hope that the points mentioned above can help you achieve your goals . Comments and suggestions are welcomed!

Keep AdSense Ads Out Of The Reach Of Children!

fraud-clicksAdSense is no more just an advertising service today, it has become the only source of income for hundreds of people who work hard Online day and night trying to receive as much traffic they as can as possible at their websites or blogs. Traffic blesses one with page impressions and clicks, which in return increases your AdSense revenue.  Because its all traffic that AdSense loves in the end of the day.

Most of you are well aware of AdSense terms of service and how strict the rules can be when it comes to "fraud clicks" or "Accidental Clicks". Probably you might have not heard of accidental clicks that much as you hear of fraud clicks. So here goes a simple explanation for both of them

[a name='more'][/a]

What are Fraud AdSense Clicks?

Fraud clicks are intentional clicks made on Ads running on a website using a software or man-made clicks. New Adsense account holders are often involved in this as most people under-estimate Adsense's policy rules and monitoring algorithms.  Many people who loose there Adsense accounts think they can easily fool this Million Dollar company and its ability.


What are Accidental AdSense Clicks?

Accidental Clicks are those that are un-intentionally made on Adsense Ads running on your website. This can happen due to many reasons which are discussed below

  • Clicks made by you accidently while updating your site
  • Clicks made by your friends or family members using your computer
  • Clicks made by Kids at home While Playing Online Video Games!

But the most important amongst them are clicks made by kids. Adults in family can be informed and educated with your advertisement rules but how can you make a Kid understand that?

Most of us have a habit of setting our Website as the browser's homepage. Even if you don't have this habit still the website URL is stored in browser's cache.  With at most one desktop computer in the house, its common that it will be used by every family member. Windows has an option of creating multiple accounts but some bloggers and well learnt web masters often don't utilize this option. Even those who create multiple accounts, still prefer to visit there websites on each and every account while in hurry. Being addicted to monitor the status of our websites we often ignore which windows account are we logged in. Is it the one which is your personal account? or the one where you let your children or younger brothers and sisters play video games online?  I have seen that happening to my own account. My younger niece once got confused while playing a game at [a href="http://pbskids.org" target="_blank"]pbskids.org[/a] and she had accidently clicked the Back button of the browser and browsed into my blog's homepage. I had left for prayers and when I was back I found the naughty sitting on my desktop computer and gazing at my Blog. I really don't know how many times she might have clicked the attractive Emoticons appearing on my Adsense Ads!

I shared my story because such accidental clicks can cause a great deal of loss to Adsense trust on you. So please make sure you create a separate protected account for you on your home computer. And never ever visit your blog on other joined accounts because it can really make your heart beat hard! :p

How to Show and Hide Widgets in Blogger?



where WIDGET CODE GOES HERE is the code of the widget you want to show or hide.

How to Hide Widgets On Homepages?

Same procedure here,

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>




How To Show Widgets Only On Static Pages?

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "static_page"'>



How To Hide Widgets On Static Pages?

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'>



How To Show a Widget On a Selected Post Only?

<b:if cond='data:blog.url == "URL OF Selected Post"'>



How To Hide a Widget On a Selected Post?

<b:if cond='data:blog.url != "URL OF Selected Post"'>




How To Control Blogger’s Official Widgets?

The same procedure can be applied to Blogger’s official widgets like About Me, Archives, Poll etc. For controlling that widgets do this,

  1. Go To Blogger > Design > Edit HTML
  2. Backup your template
  3. Check the Expand Widgets Templates Box
  4. Search for the title of the widget you want to control
  5. The code for the widget will look something similar to this one,

<b:widget id='HTML' locked='false' title='WIDGET-TITLE-HERE' type='Profile'>
<b:includable id='main'>



On finding the title in place of WIDGET-TITLE-HERE you will find two similar codes like those I have shown in bolded blue  You just need to add the Controlling codes in the following manner. For example if you wish to show a widget at Homepage only then do this,

<b:widget id='HTML' locked='false' title='WIDGET-TITLE-HERE' type='Profile'>
<b:includable id='main'>

<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>





That’s it. Do the same for applying any controlling code. I hope this was useful :)

How To Write Search Engine Friendly Blog Post Titles?

seo Nearly 80% percent of the traffic that you receive from Search engines depends on your Post title. Titles are termed as second to Content. Content is surely the King in SEO terminology but Titles follow just after in priority. If blog authors dedicate a minimum of their attention towards how they write their blog post titles then I believe there is nothing else left to optimize. Search engines need a reason to rank you higher in a particular topic and you must know how to provide them with a good reason. Learning SEO is the simplest yet the most important thing when it comes to earning Online and we all should know how to make proper use of this art. So lets look at some useful tips that have always helped me and thousands others.

What is an Optimized title?

An optimized title is one that succeeds in drawing maximum attention of search engine robots towards itself. The simplest way to understand how to develop good SEO skills is to treat search engines like humans and take their likes and dislikes as those of humans. Using this approach here are some of the things that you must know while writing a title. And again its not a philosophy subject with thousands of confusing things to remember. I am just sharing few tips that work and make sense. The three tips below are more than enough to understand what exactly is a search engine friendly title.

  1. [a href="#keyword"]Use Google Keyword tool to analyze Keywords[/a]

  2. [a href="#titlelength"]Keep the Title length to 66 characters[/a]

  3. [a href="#attracting"]Make your title Attractive![/a]

[a name="keyword"]1- Use Google Keyword Tool [/a]

The above title is attracting, contains three keywords i.e Search Engine Friendly , Blog and Post titles with an attracting How-to start and question mark (?) at the end of the title and all this count a total of 53 characters. That's how you hit three birds with one stone!


  • The word websites in the first title is useless for me because this post is for bloggers only and they will often write blogs while searching a query instead of websites.

  • The words Learn, best tips are less effective and not well organized compared to the keywords used in the second title.

  • The first title uses no question marks or good starting keyword while the second does. Exclamation marks (!) and question Marks (?) will always entice the searcher to click, and visit your website over your competitors.

I don’t need to add anything more here because you all are genius enough to apply the common sense and make things more smarter, stunning and intriguing.


This is what you always need to do while writing highly optimized and attractive Post titles,

  1. Always analyze your keywords using Google Keyword tool.

  2. Spell your words correctly and keep School Grammar in mind

  3. Write Short titles with one or two keywords

  4. Always Keep title length less than 66 characters

  5. Make your title attractive to both robots and readers by adding attention-drawing phrases and symbols. Use  words like How to, Best tips, Top 10, free, easy etc

  6. Always try to end your title with a question mark or an exclamation mark when necessary.


On my next tutorials I will share some important tips on how to optimize the opening paragraph of your articles/posts and will share some secrets of mine. I have also not discussed some more basic things related to title URLs in today’s post because I don’t wanted to make things difficult and we will surely discuss it on coming posts. Till then I hope you will find it really useful and I just hope you learnt something new today. Peace and blessings! :d

Source: http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/01/how-to-write-search-engine-friendly.html

Let Search Engines and Visitors Enjoy Your Blog Posts! – How To?

search-engines-love After having shared the [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/01/how-to-write-search-engine-friendly.html" target="_blank"]importance of Post titles[/a] and [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2009/11/importance-of-post-title-limit-in-eyes.html" target="_blank"]Post title limit in the eyes of search engines[/a], the next step is to understand the difference between an online blog post and an English essay. Remember the old school days where a teacher would assign us a topic and we had to write a long essay on the chosen topic. Unfortunately some people still haven't get rid of that habit and still waste their precious time by adopting a wrong online writing style. What we write online should not be just appealing and worth reading for our visitors but for search engine Robots too and that matters more. A blog post with straight, plain text, with no headlines, no use of font styles, images, media etc is as boring to a robot as it is to a reader. So today we will learn some important basics that will surely add a delicious spice to your writing styles plus will bring up a significant change in your current organic traffic.

Why Should I read Your Blog?

This is the question that comes first in our mind when we visit a blog and start roaming here and there. But this question is justified and you should always ask yourself as why should someone read your article and to answer it you must fill up all empty buckets. Before I may explain the optimization related tricks I would like you to first carefully see these two examples,

See the difference? Now learn the good way of beautifying your written style and making the best use of your online time.

How To Let Search Engines and Readers Love Your Posts?

My main focus today is not just to share optimizing tips but on how to write a best post possible. So lets learn the basic building blocks of a good online post. Following are some of the secrets and tips of adopting the best online writing style in order to attract both readers and search engines.

1-   Write a highly optimized starting paragraph –The Intro

What catches a reader’s eye is how you win his interest from the starting intro Para and what catches a search engine robot’s attention is how you choose good keywords. So how exactly we do this. The tips are simple,

Start your Paragraph with an old story. i.e Link previous posts that may be related to the new one or link important tools and related websites. If the post is a unique one and has no relation with your previous posts then simply give some background story of it with a latest rumor related to it. Try drawing reader’s attention and let him believe that this post is not just an ordinary one.  Use [a href="https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal" target="_blank"]Google Keyword tool[/a] and choose the best words for your intro.


  • Correct Keywords will attract robots more and more.

  • With back links to Older Posts, their importance (PR) in the yes of robots will significantly increase.

  • With an old story and link to previous posts, readers will get interested in the post.

2-   Always Add an Intro Image

Add an intro image and align him at the left of your intro paragraph. Tag the image with proper keywords that may describe your post content. For example in the intro image of today’s post I have tagged the image in this way,

< img alt="Search Engines Love" src="Image-Link"/>


  • This way you will drive traffic from Google Images too. Tag also all other images  that appear in your posts with relevant keywords but don’t tag them with same keywords again and again. Be versatile.

3-  Add Anchor Tags To Important Sections Of Your Post

Divide Your Articles/posts into sections and link each section using an anchor link. Links do surely play more significant role than a plain text. The more you tag your posts with links the better it is. Anchor tags to each separate portion of your post will force the robot to crawl and index your posts more deeply. In fact engaging a robot more into your content is like seducing it with your play of words! 


  • Your content will be crawled and indexed better and not overlooked.

  • This technique helps you to win over your competitors. Few months ago MBT blog was ranked 7th for the keyword “Blogger Tricks” and today it is ranked the third. See it for yourselves,


4-   Add h4 and h5 Tags

UPDATE:  Since We have recently updated the structure by adding H2 Tag to post titles so now instead of H4 use H3 and instead of H5 use H4. Rest everything remains the same.

What do we read and give importance first when we read a Newspaper? Of course the Headlines! Similar logic does apply to Headlines that appear in our posts. Readers and Robots attraction is greatly drawn by the HTML  Heading tags. Heading Tags have more importance then a normal plain text. The largest size and most important Heading tag is the H1 tag and this tag by default is added to your Blog Homepage title in [a href="http://blogger.com/" target="_blank"]Blogger[/a], next comes H2 which is added to Blog Description and the H3 which is added to Blog Post titles and what is left are H4 and H5 tags. So you must make use of this golden opportunity. The Blue headline text that you always see in my posts are the H4 tags and the green ones are the H5 tags in descending order of importance. As shown below,



  • These tags will highlight important sections to robots and Readers

  • Again an edge over your Competitors!

  • More chances to get better indexed!

Which one attracted your eyes the most? I am sure you chose the second one and that’s where the secret lies.. Just how it attracted you , a highlighted and well presented post attracts Robots and makes their job more easy and enjoying. Thus they rank you higher and fall in love with what you write!

Final Word Of Advise

I will let the rest things on you and would end up today’s tutorial with just a simple rule of thumb and that is “Whether it be a human or a machine, they all love grace and colors, so be graceful and be colorful. At least one of them could fall in love with you!”

That’s all for today! :>
