Customize Google+ Stream Layout

 

This customization will be visible only to you and your friends can not see it but it will put a good impression on them when they connect to Plus through your personal computer. :> There is another add-on available too that will change the entire color scheme of your Google Plus account. I will share it in my coming posts.

Disadvantages of Pinging Servers With Windows Live Writer

[a href="http://lh6.ggpht.com/-7QNFYFxkGdc/Tgx9wTusOmI/AAAAAAAAEB8/HhBKg9CyXFQ/s1600-h/PINGING-wlw%25255B7%25255D.gif"]PINGING-wlw[/a][a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/05/use-windows-live-writer-kick-blogger.html" target="_blank"]Windows Live writer[/a] offers an option where you can ping social networks and search engines whenever you publish a new post. Pinging is not a bad thing unless you do it frequently like 3-4 times a day. According to some previously asked questions WLW team has confirmed that the Ping function if turned on can put unnecessary burden on the servers that can cause you getting banned by search engines, blog directories and social networks. [a name='more'][/a]This can badly effect your search engine listings and social network repo if you are requesting an update request frequently from different traffic sources may that be search engines or social media networks. However if you want a special attention of search engines and blog directories for a selected post then you can do that by temporarily activating your Ping function as follows:

How to Ping Servers in Windows Live Writer?

Go To WLW Options menu and select Ping Servers as shown below,

[a href="http://lh3.ggpht.com/-ZEmVw_d11YE/Tgx90qfwWuI/AAAAAAAAECE/IzRhD28iu6E/s1600-h/image%25255B4%25255D.png"]ping servers[/a]

Check the box and paste the following pinging URLs inside the big box,


http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping
http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2
http://ping.feedburner.com
http://rpc.icerocket.com:10080
http://services.newsgator.com/ngws/xmlrpcping.aspx
http://api.feedster.com/ping.php
http://rpc.pingomatic.com
http://rpc.weblogs.com/RPC2

The above URLs will ping technorati, google blog search, Feedburner, Feedster and most importantly pingomatic which will update dozens of directories about your latest blog update.

Please use this utility carefully and ping all these services only when you think that your post is not indexed or needs special attention. You can do this for unique posts 3-4 times a week but not daily. But don't be too afraid of using this tool, I use it too but when I need to. Stay safe and have fun. Peace and blessings. :)

Google Changed Search Results Format and Design

[a href="http://lh5.ggpht.com/-6EhPgWAWa98/Tgzfb2wF_MI/AAAAAAAAECQ/avsMjbtCz5Y/s1600-h/SEARCH-FORMAT%25255B2%25255D.gif"]GOOGLE SEARCH-FORMAT[/a]

June 2011 saw a rapid change in Google's development performance. We heard of Google [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/06/add-google-1-button-to-your-blogger.html" target="_blank"]+1 Button[/a], then the [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/06/google-1-button-will-start-appearing-on.html" target="_blank"]+1 Project[/a], the [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/06/1-report-stats-added-to-google.html" target="_blank"]+1 Metrics[/a], then Social Plugins tracking in Analytics and [a name='more'][/a]now just few days have past that the entire search format and appearance have been changed. Now the Webpage titles are immediately followed by Webpage URL and then Description in the last. Previously the webpage titles were followed immediately by description but now URL has taken a jump up. This signals towards the priority of Webpage URL over Page Description.

How can this change effect your Organic Traffic?

To be honest no one can give a confident answer except logical views. Every single move taken by Google has always put a drastic impact on web traffic and with the latest introduction of +1 recommendation plugin this shift in URL position can have a significant meaning.

What are the Design Changes?

Now you see a black navigation bar appearing at the top with all available search options. After the query is being submitted by the user, a left pane appears where you are given several search tools. An interesting new feature is that now you can view what information is been fed in Google every single second by clicking the latest Link under Any time option. You can also select a custom time range to search for specific data over a selected time period. All these new developments made Google to stand out once again.

[a href="http://lh6.ggpht.com/-SBbtILwMOR4/Tgzfdh4zZoI/AAAAAAAAECY/NU8nav13xus/s1600-h/image%25255B3%25255D.png"]Google navigation bar[/a]

 

[a href="http://lh4.ggpht.com/-AKNu-XgrqNE/TgzffJDjrVI/AAAAAAAAECg/ike2DezEfH0/s1600-h/image%25255B7%25255D.png"]Google Left pane[/a]

and not just that! Looks like even Google designers are bored with the old search button and therefore they changed it into a attractive light blue one,

[a href="http://lh6.ggpht.com/-8_ln7i3LdEQ/TgzfiNnZGiI/AAAAAAAAECo/ttOkppEE1O0/s1600-h/image%25255B11%25255D.png"]new google search button[/a]

What do you have to share?

Keeping the design thing aside, what do you think the sudden change in the position of Page URL and Page Description can cause to search engine ranking criteria. Can it effect your +1'd recommendations?

Symantec Gives Green Card to Apple iOS in Security against Android

This is a guest post by Bhavesh Mohanlal Pamecha from [a href="http://www.plentyofebooks.net/" target="_blank"]Plenty of Ebooks[/a]


[a href="http://lh6.ggpht.com/-RCGl0fQYcnI/Tg4yttk9sTI/AAAAAAAAED4/ySFLYosV8z4/s1600-h/iphone%252520vs%252520android%25255B6%25255D.jpg"]iphone vs android[/a][a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/06/free-blogging-apps-for-iphone-ipod.html" target="_blank"]Apple iOS[/a] and Google [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/05/mobile-blogging-using-android-phone.html" target="_blank"]Android[/a] are the most widely used mobile operating systems in today's smart phones and are considered to safer than a traditional Desktop operating system. Due to the increasing popularity the privacy features provided are not enough to maintain a certain security level. [a name='more'][/a]
According to a recent research conducted by Symantec about the security of Google Android and Apple's iOS, Symantec gave a green card to Apple iOS being more secure than Google Android. The research was conducted keeping in mind to examine the core security architecture & determining their strengths & weaknesses of both platforms.
Below is the summary of analysis of the two platforms:

Apple iOS

Advantages:

  • Better Access Control & Encryption
  • Control Policies using password with more options such as automatic data wipe after a certain number of failed password attempts.
  • App Store more secure due to certification and control.
  • Sandboxing to isolate applications.


Disadvantages:

  • Built-in hardware encryption increases the changes of a Hacker getting control of your device.
  • Apps can perform a wide range on actions which can raise potential privacy flags.

Android

Advantages:

  • Better Application Isolation
  • No built-in hardware encryption in Android 2.2 & 2.3. However, the tablet OS, Android 3.0, do have an option but is turned off by default.
  • Sandboxing to isolate applications.
  • Apps are blocked from accessing most of the system services unless a user explicitly grants permission after checking the list of permissions shown while installing an app.


Disadvantages:

  • Control Policies using password but no advanced options.
  • Android Market is more prone to Malware due to its openness.


For an in-depth, technical evaluation view this 23 Page "White Paper" ([a href="http://www.symantec.com/content/en/us/about/media/pdfs/symc_mobile_device_security_june2011.pdf?om_ext_cid=biz_socmed_twitter_facebook_marketwire_linkedin_2011Jun_worldwide_mobilesecuritywp" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"]PDF INFO[/a]) released by Symantec.

What are your views?

Although I don’t see much difference regarding security in both of these platforms I guess Apple iOS wins the race with better control policy and app store. What’s your view?

[a href="http://lh4.ggpht.com/-wJHWsNqCgTE/Tg6X-axsJmI/AAAAAAAAEEQ/NeW9K8qxFhQ/s1600-h/music-player%25255B8%25255D.gif"]music-player[/a]Today's player is much different from the [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2009/11/customize-color-scheme-of-wordpress-mp3.html" target="_blank"]music mp3 player[/a] I previously shared. It created by [a href="http://www.alsacreations.fr/dewplayer-en" target="_blank"]alsacreations[/a] and provided for free use. It is called Dewplayer, which is a smart easy to use flash mp3 player that comes in different sizes and shapes. You can create a beautiful playlist in your blogger blogs with it and with a professional look. I personally liked it a lot! Turn off the music below and lets try this new discovery.







How To Add Music Player To your Website?


1.  First you need to download this file: [a href="https://sites.google.com/site/mybloggertricks/Home/dewplayer.rar?attredirects=0&d=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"]DewPlayer Bundle[/a]

2.  Unzip the file using winrar or winzip

3.  Now you can see a lot of files in it. I have compressed the popular types as shown below.

[a href="http://lh6.ggpht.com/-x2jwg5iw74s/Tg6X_2asAFI/AAAAAAAAEEY/ja8JLQh-Muw/s1600-h/image%25255B3%25255D.png"]music player types[/a]

In this tutorial we will learn to create all types accept the playlist as I will be writing a more detailed post on it tonight. Select your favorite player and upload it (swf file) on a free hosting website along with your mp3 file.

4.  Now you just need to copy and paste anyone of the codes below inside your blogger posts, sidebars, anywhere you want.

PS: In each case below replace the highlighted text with the swf file link of the Player and replace MBT.mp3 with the mp3 link. For more options you can visit and create it using their [a href="http://www.alsacreations.fr/dewplayer-en" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"]tool[/a] or of course you can call me for help :d

How to use a Custom Name in Blogger comments?

  1. Go To Blogger > Design > Edit HTML

  2. Backup your template

  3. Click the "Expand Widgets Template"

  4. Search for this,

or an image,

<img src="ADD IMAGE LINK HERE" border="0" />

Replace the bolded text with image link. Keep you image as small as 150px by 20px in size.

Add Nofollow Tag To all Download, Demo & Iframed Link Pages



This is a short informative post for all those who share Download files or any other web related resources with there readers. A PageRank by Google is an important rank that determines the importance of your website or blog in the eyes of search engine spiders. A spider is a robot that is responsible for crawling your content and indexing it on data bases. Since the entire infrastructure of GOOGLE PR is based on quality backlinks therefore it very important that you should flow the [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2010/01/how-to-inter-link-pages-smartly-to-flow.html" target="_blank"]PR juice[/a] wisely and do not waste it on useless links.  By useless links I mean websites that use login structures or IFrames. An I framed webpage is not crawled by spiders because it can not access it. All social media networks have a login algorithm that allows visitors only with a unique password. When you link Facebook Profiles, Twitter or Blogger Profiles or any other social network, make sure you add the nofollow tag to them. Further you must also add a [a href="http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2011/06/add-tag-to-all-links-in-table-of.html" target="_blank"]nofollow tag[/a] to the links in your table of contents. If you write tutorials like me and share a DEMO link or Download Link then make sure you tag them as nofollow because linking files and hosting websites will drink all your PR juice and will slow down your PR progress on next PR update.


There is also a noindex tag which should be added only when you feel that even the text of the link is not important.


How to add Nofollow Tag in HyperLinks



A link has this HTML code,



<a href="http:xyz.com">Download</a>



To make any link nofollow just change the link in this way,



<a rel="nofollow" href="http:xyz.com">Download</a>



To add a noindex tag which is not very necessary do this,






<a rel="noindex" rel="nofollow" href="http:xyz.com">Live DEMO</a>






now your PR is more healthy and safe.


What links should be kept dofollow



UPDATE: A detailed post has been written please read: [a href="http://www.blogger.com/"]When should you nofollow links[/a]?


Always make it a habit of linking well established websites and services. If you are sharing a Facebook Plugin then feel free to link the developers page else if you are sharing a news on AdSense then you must link to the AdSense blog and openly mention things that matter with relevant source links. This will increase your BLOG reputation in the eyes of robots and will help you you rank higher. Blogs become authorities by linking relevant stuff and avoiding useless iframed pages.


Even I have done the plunder of linking demo and download links a lot but the better you know the good it is. I hope this little info may help you preserve and protect your newly gifted PRs and may help you to utilize it wisely. Wish you all the best.
