Layanan Gratis untuk Ping, Social Bookmarking, Submit Iklan Gratis, Traffic Generator, Free Traffic System

Filed under: Uncategorized — Masbuddy @ 7:31 am
ping adalah suatu cara untuk memberi tahu Search Engine dan Directory  secara lebih cepat bahwa blog Anda telah diupdate dan otomatis mereka akan segera mengubah data mengenai blog Anda yang telah diperbaharui di server mereka.
Jasa Ping Service. Layanan ini gratis dan mudah digunakan.
Beberapa situs yang menyediakan jasa Ping adalah:
1. Pingoat (http;//www.pingoat.com/)

2. Ping-o-matic (http://www. Pingomatic.com/)

3. MyPagerank.net (http://mypagerank.net/ ), tapi layanan ini harus mendaftar dulu.
Tips melakukan Ping:
1. Lakukan ping apabila Anda telah mengupdate Blog
2. Lakukan ping apabila Anda mempublikasikan postingan terbaru
3. Jangan melakukan ping terlalu sering karena akan dianggap spam
Sebenarnya apa manfaat Ping ini?
1. Agar Update Blog Anda selalu diketahui banyak pengunjung
2. Postingan baru akan lebih cepat terindeks di Search Engine dan directory
3. Tentunya akan lebih SEO friendly.
Nah, mulai sekarang biasakanlah melakukan Ping sehabis Posting
APA MANFAAT SOCIAl BOOKMARKING?
1. Meningkatkan SERP
2. Meningkatkan backlink
3. Cara untuk menjaring traffic
4. Cepat terindeks di Mesin Pencari
Karena manfaatnya cukup banyak, banyak blogger-blogger yang dengan sengaja membookmark halaman-halaman dari blog mereka sendiri. Ini tentu sah-sah saja. Dan saya pun menganjurkan untuk membookmark setiap artikel di blog Anda ke puluhan situs Social Bookmarking ini untuk memperoleh manfaat-manfaat yang saya sebutkan tadi.
Karena banyaknya situs-situs social bookmarking di luar sana (ada puluhan). Kegiatan Membookmark halaman situs Anda secara satu persatu merupakan kegiatan yang sangat menghabiskan waktu. Bayangkan jika Anda harus membookmark halaman blog anda ke 30 situs social boomarking, melelahkan bukan?
Karena itulah saya menuli artikel ini, ada dua buah layanan yang sangat membantu dalam melakukan kegiatan social bookmarking ini. Saya menganjurkan Anda menggunakan keduanya. Layanan tersebut adalah:
Ini adalah layanan yang sangat praktis, tinggal masukan link halaman yang akan di bookmark, deskripsi singkat dan tag-tag yang diinginkan lalu klik submit. Halaman situs Anda akan langsung dibookmark ke 20 situs social bookmarking. Cara kerjanya? Sebenarnya, layanan ini akan melakukan bookmark ke akun-akun social bookmark milik pembuat layanan ini. Tetapi tidak masalah bukan? Yang penting link-link halaman kita tersubmit.
2. Onlywire (www.onlywire.com)
Onlywire menawarkan layanan untuk mensubmit ke lebih dari 30 situs social bookmark. Namun Anda harus melakukan registrasi dulu. Kunjungi saja onlywire.com dan klik sign up. Anda akan ditawari layanan gratis dan berbayar, pilih saja yang gratis(promote/free).
Setelah akun dibuat, download toolbarnya, nanti akan ada instruksi untuk mendownload dan install toolbar ini.
Pada bagian service (Set Up Your Bookmarking Sites), masukanusername dan Password Anda pada situs-situs yang tersedia disana. Kemungkinan besar Anda belum mendaftarkan diri pada beberapa situs yang tersedia, jadi silahkan daftar dulu, setelah itu masukkan username (ada yang berupa username, ada yang berupa email) dan password Anda. Tidak perlu memasukkannya pada semua situs yang tersedia, beberapa situs saja juga boleh. Setelah itu klik tombol Save My Login bagian bawah halaman.
Jika Anda ingin melakukan bookmark, buka saja halaman situs yang ingin di bookmark, lalu klik icon OnlyWire yang ada di pojok kanan atas Browser (Mozilla Firefox), klik Bookmark & Share (ingat instal dulu toobarnya). Lebih jelas lihat gambar, yang dilingkari warna merah adalah Toolbar Onlywirenya.
Atau buka saja halaman yang ingin di bookmark, lalu klik kanan pada halaman tersebut, pilih Onlywire bookmark & share, lalu ikuti instruksi selanjutnya.
Setelah bookmark selesai, nantinya Onlywire akan memberi keterangan apakah submit berhasil, pending atau pun gagal melalui email.

3. Tambahan

Ini cuma sebagai tambahan, yaitu layanan yang semi automatic. Artinya tidak langsung tersubmit dalam 1 klik, lebih jelasnya langsung dicoba saja, yaitu layanan dari socialmarker.com dan socialposter.com

Alamat Script untuk buat Social Bookmarking

O iya, jika Anda juga ingin membuat serta meramaikan daftar social bookmarking Indonesia, bisa mendownload script dan tata caranya di http://pligg.com, kunjungi juga forumnya untuk mengetahui cara2 customisasi dan miliki situs Social Bookmarking Anda Sendiri.

Spyonad, Submit ke puluhan iklan baris dalam 1 klik

Spyonad.com adalah layanan untuk mensubmit iklan ke puluhan situs-situs iklan baris gratis dalam sekali klik. Jika sebelumnya banyak software-software dan layanan berbayar menawarkan jasa ini, sekarang Anda bisa melakukannya sendiri dan 100% GRATIS.

Mungkin sudah tidak perlu saya terangkan lagi bagaimana situs ini bekerja. Silahkan saja Anda mendaftar di spyonad.com. Setelah masuk member area, klik pasang iklan dan tulis deskripsi iklan dan URL halaman website yang dituju, lalu submit dan iklan Anda pun tersebar ke puluhan iklan baris gratis Indonesia.

Traffic Generator

Jadi apa nama layanannya? Mereka disebut TRAFFIC GENERATOR atau sering disebut juga TRAFFIC EXCHANGE. Layanan ini akan menggiring para peselancar internet untuk meng-klik link situs anda. Prinsip kerjanya sebagai berikut: Mereka menjual jasa promosi, setiap orang yang ingin situsnya di promosikan atau dikunjungi harus membayar tarif sesuai jumlah kunjungan yang ingin dicapai. HAH..BAYAR?? TUNGGU DULU!! Saya tidak bilang anda harus bayar, layanan ini 100% GRATIS. Lalu maksudnya membayar tarif itu apa? Tenang, anda tidak perlu mengeluarkan uang untuk layanan ini, tapi yang dimaksud membayar tarif itu adalah MELAKUKAN BARTER.

Apa itu??
Artinya jika anda ingin situs anda dikunjungi, maka anda juga harus mengunjungi situs-situs para pemasang iklan di layanan tersebut. Dengan cara meng-klik situs-situs mereka yang linknya akan di tampilkan oleh penyedia layanan traffic generator. Tarifnya bermacam-macam, ada yang 1:1, 2:1, 3:2, dll.

Apa itu maksudnya?
Misal tarifnya 2:1, itu artinya setiap kali anda meng-klik 2 iklan mereka, maka situs anda akan di tampilkan sebanyak 1 kali di tempat lain. Artinya web/blog kita dikunjungi 1 kali. Begitu pula buat yang 1:1, 3:2, dll..

Mirip PTC!
Ya, layanan ini mirip dengan PTC. Hanya saja kalau PTC setiap kita meng-klik dibayar dengan uang, nah kalau traffic generator, setiap meng-klik, kita dibayar traffic. Bagaimana? Mulai mengerti kan..

Terus apa yang harus kita lakukan?
– Yang pertama, mendaftar saja di penyedia layanan traffic generator yang saya cantumkan di akhir tulisan ini, tapi sebelumnya akan saya bahas terlebih dahulu mengenai keunggulan dan kekurangannya, jadi jangan terburu-buru dulu. Saya beritahu dulu cara mendaftarnya ya..ini caranya:
– klik saja tombol daftar yang saya sediakan.
– Kalo sudah masuk ke situsnya, klik sign up/register.
– Isi formulir pendaftarannya. Setelah formulir di isi semua, klik enter.
– Setelah itu biasanya mereka akan mengirim e-mail ke alamat e-mail kita berupa konfirmasi pendaftaran berupa link konfirmasi, klik link yang diberikan melalui e-mail tersebut
– Lalu Login, setelah masuk ke akun kita, cari bagian yang fungsinya untuk menambahkan URL web/blog kita yang akan kita promosikan (Biasanya bertuliskan “Add Site” atau “Add New Site Addres” atau kalimat lainnya yang intinya sama”).
– Tambahkan URL web/blog yang akan kita promosikan disana
– Kita bisa menambahkan lebih dari satu web/blog kedalam traffic generator tersebut.
– Setelah itu, barulah kita bisa mengumpulkan traffic dengan meng-klik bagian “surf for credits” atau biasanya juga bertuliskan “surf4credits” atau variasi tulisan lain yang maksudnya sama.
– Setelah jendela surfing terbuka, maka akan akan sebuah situs yang akan ditampilkan selama 10 – 30 detik.
– Setelah hitungan mundurnya habis, anda harus klik di salah satu sudut. Masing-masing layanan traffic generator punya gayanya sendiri. Ada yang menyuruh kita mengklik huruf, angka atau gambar yang ditentukan, ada yang diakhiri dengan GO, ada pula yang bertuliskan Next Page. Semakin banyak anda klik semakin baik. Nah, dari sinilah traffic kita akan datang dan terus meningkat.

Harus meng-klik? Bukannya butuh waktu lama?

Sebenarnya tidak lama..Menurut pengalaman saya, dalam 1/2 jam, saya bisa menghasilkan lebih dari 50 credits (50 kunjungan ke situs kita). Lalu bagaimana caranya supaya kita bisa mendatangkan 100 kunjungan bahkan lebih dalam 1 jam?

Caranya ialah dengan mengikuti lebih dari 1 traffic generator (Saya sendiri udah mendaftar 4 traffic generator). Terus, setelah terdaftar dan URL kita siap untuk di promosikan, masuk ke masing-masing traffic generator yang anda ikuti, kalo anda ikut 4 traffic generator, buka saja keempat-empatnya, supaya lebih mudah, pakailah Browser Mozilla, dimana 1 jendela bisa memuat lebih dari 1 TAB.

Setelah itu klik bergantian pada masing-masing traffic generator untuk mengumpulkan point lebih banyak dalam waktu yang sama. Dengan cara ini setidaknya anda bisa mengumpulkan 120 points dalam 1 jam, yang artinya 120 kunjungan dalam 1 jam..Bayangkan saja, jika satu jam setiap hari saja kita bisa mengumpulkan 100 point, maka dalam 1 minggu traffic kita akan menjadi=…? Dalam sebulan menjadi=….?

O iya, didalam traffic generator juga berlaku sistem referral..

Oke, sekarang sudah mengerti bukan? kalau masih ada yang kurang jelas, tanyakan saja melalui kotak comment.

Lalu Situs-situs apa saja yang menyediakan layanan traffic generator?

1. Easyhits4U
Ini adalah THE BEST, NO. 1 favorit saya. Kenapa?? Karena selain rationya 1:1, kita juga bisa menghasilkan uang yang cukup lumayan. Traffic dapat, uang pun dapat, dan tentunya, GRATIS! Saya sangat menganjurkan Anda bergabung di layanan ini.
Daftar>>>

2. Traffic Swarm
Perbandingan credit/point 1:1, Refferal 5 level.
Ini juuga adalah favorit saya, mengapa? Karena walaupun perbandingan creditnya 1:1, ternyata saat kita melakukan klik, jumlah creditnya berkisar antara 1 – 7 credit/klik, Ini berdasarkan pengalaman saya. Namun, situs kita harus disetujui dulu sebelum bisa dipromosikan. Biasanya memakan waktu 1 hari setelah pendaftaran situs kita. Dan sayangnya, traffic swarm tidak menerima situs yang berbahasa non-english
Daftar>>>

3. Fast Free Way
Credit ratio 2:1. Fast Free Way sangat mudah di operasikan. Tidak seperti traffic swarm, layanan ini menerima web/blog dalam bahasa apa saja. Dan tidak perlu menunggu lama untuk disetujui. Karena begitu kita menambahkan URL web/blog kita, Fast Free Way akan langsung mengecek keberadaannya, yah..Cuma mengecek keberadaannya aja..Maksudnya adalah untuk menguji apakah URL yang kita masukkan itu valid atau tidak. Ada refferalnya juga..
Daftar>>>

4. Lord of Traffic
Sama seperti Fast Free Way, Ratio 3:2. Yang menarik dari layanan ini adalah waktu tampilan situs pada saat surfing hanya 10 detik, jadi bisa lebih cepat menghasilkan point.

Daftar>>>

Supaya hasilnya bisa dilihat, pasang saja widget Histat disitus Anda.

Namun akhir-akhir ini saya mendengar kabar bahwa menggunakan layanan traffic generator bisa mengganggu Google Adsense, bahkan bisa dibanned. Ada juga yang bilang tidak masalah asal memakainya tidak terlalu sering. Saya sendiri tidak terlalu sering memakai layanan ini untuk blog, namun saya gunakan untuk promosi web-web affiliasi saya.

Saya juga tidak menjamin Anda akan mendapat kenaikan ranking yang signifikan dengan mengikuti program ini, hanya saja untuk kegiatan promosi, layanan seperti ini saya nilai cukup bagus. Karena itu sekarang semuanya terserah pada Anda..

Dan ingat! Jika Anda menggunakan layanan ini, traffic yang datang ke situs Anda adalah traffic yang bisa dibilang bukan traffic sejati, karena memang mereka datang melalui pertukaran traffic antara Anda dan mereka. Karena itulah saya lebih memilih menggunakan layanan ini untuk mempromosikan Web-web affiliasi saya daripada untuk promosi blog. Namun, trik ini cukup bagus jika Anda memang benar-benar mempunyai sesuatu yang cukup menarik di blog Anda.

Mengoptimalkan Gambar Untuk Memperoleh Traffic

Mengoptimalkan gambar untuk mesin pencari adalah salah satu teknik SEO on Page. Dengan teknik ini, Anda tidak hanya akan memperoleh traffic dari kata kunci postingan, melainkan juga dari kata kunci yang kita letakkan pada gambar yang ada di postingan tersebut. Istilahnya Anda akan mendapat traffic dobel, dari postingan dan dari gambar. Bagaimana langkah-langkahnya? Langsung saja kita praktekan.

1. Beri nama pada gambar yang akan Anda upload sesuai dengan kata kunci yang Anda incar. Misalnya, jika Anda mengincar kata kunci “menaikkan pagerank” maka berilah nama pada gambar Anda “menaikkan pagerank.jpg” (Jika gambar berformat .jpg). Untuk layanan upload gambar, Anda bisa menggunakan jasa Freeimagehosting.net

2. Setelah upload, untuk menampilkan gambar tersebut biasanya menggunakan kode seperti ini:
<img src=”namadomain.com/menaikkan_pagerank.jpg”/>
Agar lebih SEO friendly, maka kita tambahkan atribut ALT pada kode tersebut. Sehingga menjadi:
<img src=”namadomain.com/menaikkan_pagerank.jpg” alt=”cara menaikkan pagerank” />

Fungsi dari atribut ALT adalah untuk memberikan penjelasan tentang gambar tersebut ke Search Engine apabila browser tidak dapat menampilkan gambar karena sesuatu hal. Browser yang tidak support gambar akan menampilkan isi atribut ALT tersebut sebagai gantinya.

Selain itu, jika Anda membuat suatu link dengan gambar, isi atribut ALT tersebut akan dianggap sama seperti teks link oleh Search Engine. Namun jangan memberikan atribut ALT yang terlalu panjang karena bisa dianggap spam oleh search engine.

Agar kata kunci yang Anda incar melalui gambar tersebut unik, Anda bisa menambahkan nama blog Anda di belakangnya, contoh: alt =”menaikkan pagerank BlogMamet.com”. Karena kata kunci Anda memang harus unik agar memperoleh posisi yang bagus di Search Engine.

Sekian dan semoga bermanfaat…Jangan lupa komentar ya….

Backlink Hebat dari Free Traffic System

Seperti kita tahu, backlink adalah elemen yang sangat penting untuk mendapatkan ranking dan pagerank yang tinggi di search engine. Banyak cara yang dilakukan para blogger dan webmaster untuk membangun backlink mereka, seperti mendaftar di search engine, article directory, mempromosikan URL mereka di situs-situs iklan baris gratis, sampai berkomentar di blog-blog milik Blogger lainnya. Kelihatan melelahkan? Ya..memang seperti itulah salah satu metode yang digunakan para Blogger pada umumnya.

Namun, disini saya mempunyai informasi yang cukup bagus Anda yang ingin membangun Backlink secara powerfull, aman, mudah dan GRATIS!
Ya..layanan ini disebut Free Traffic System. Kita bisa membangun backlink secara GRATIS, mudah dan aman melalui layanan ini. Free traffic system memberi 3 cara untuk membangun backlink, yaitu:

1) Submit article(s)
2) Submit Blog(s)
3) Viral Backlinks.

Submit article: Kita boleh meletakkan 2 buah link dengan anchor text pilihan kita pada setiap artikel yang kita submit. Kemudian kita bisa pilih up to 30 related topic blogs (blog yang topiknya kita pilih dan biasanya sesuai dengan tema blog kita) yang tersedia di network free traffic system untuk artikel kita diposting di sana. Jadi untuk setiap 1 artikel yang kita submit dan di-approve oleh mereka, lalu kita bisa dapatkan 30 blogs yang related topic, maka kita dijamin memperoleh 60 backlinks yang berkualitas. Apakah benar-benar berkualitas? Ya.. karena diposting pada 30 blogs yang berbeda-beda yang related topic dengan topik blog kita.

Saya ingin memberikan sedikit penjelasan terutama mengenai tool pada free traffic system untuk menghindari duplikat konten dan untuk variasi anchor text.. Penjelasan yang lain bisa di-download gratis di situs resmiFree Traffic System.

Tool untuk menghindari duplikat konten
Free traffic system menyediakan tool berupa spinner software yang akan mengkonversi artikel kita menjadi banyak artikel yang berbeda redaksi tulisannya, walaupun pokok pikirannya masih sama. Karena menurut para pakar SEO, robot search engine google menganggap duplikat konten hanya pada redaksi tulisannya saja, tidak pada pokok pikirannya. Ya namanya saja robot, apa iya bisa tahu sampai ke pokok pikiran, pikiran utama dan pikiran tambahan? Tapi mungkin saja , teknologi masa depan google bisa melacak sampai seperti itu.

Berikut ini adalah contoh variasi titlenya :

Title:

Baby acne, [spin]Reasons|Causes|the Factors|Purposes[/spin] and [spin]Treatments|Therapies|Medical Cares[/spin]
Variasi title yang terbentuk oleh tool free traffic system adalah:

1. Baby Acne, Reasons And Treatments
2. Baby Acne, Reasons And Therapies
3. Baby Acne, Reasons And Medical Cares
4. Baby Acne, Causes And Treatments
5. Baby Acne, Causes And Therapies
6. Baby Acne, Causes And Medical Cares
7. Baby Acne, The Factors And Treatments
8. Baby Acne, The Factors And Therapies
9. Baby Acne, The Factors And Medical Cares
10. Baby Acne, Purposes And Treatments
11. Baby Acne, Purposes And Therapies
12. Baby Acne, Purposes And Medical Cares

Tersedia 12 judul artikel dari kombinasi 2 pasang tag [spin] [/spin] Bagaimana kalau lebih dari 2 pasang tag? Misalnya kita mensubmit artikel yang title-nya terdiri dari 5 pasang tag [spin] [/spin] menghasilkan ± 800-an title. Ucapkan selamat tinggal pada duplicate content for title.
lalu bagaimana dengan article body –nya? Caranya sama saja dengan spin title di atas. Berikut adalah contohnya:

Body:
Baby acne is a very [spin]common|usual|ordinary[/spin] condition among newborn babies. Baby acne can be present at the time of birth or may usually develop within 2 to 4 weeks after birth. Baby acne is a [spin]result|impact[/spin] of the hormonal changes in the body as these changes [spin]stimulate|effect|cause[/spin] the oil glands in the baby’s skin.
Jadi variasi dari paragraph tersebut adalah sejumlah: 3×2×3=18 buah paragraf!

Yang perlu kita lakukan adalah mencari artkel berbahasa Inggris. Banyak sumber yang menyediakan artikel semacam ini, diantaranya adalah:ezinearticlesbase atau langsung di google. Agar lebih mudah mencarinya, ketikkan:

Allintitle: keyword artikel kita >>>contoh: allintitle: make money online articles. Setelah dapat artikel sesuai keperluan, tulis ulang atau copy paste tulisan tersebut.

Kalau kesulitan dengan bahasa Inggris, download saja software Babylontoolbar yang bisa addon ke firefox. Software ini bisa didapatkan gratis. Saya tidak merekomendasikan memakai google translate, kenapa? Karena untuk translate English >>> English, google translate belum support. Pada google translate, kalau kita translate English >>> English, misal: Increase=Increase. Sedangkan untuk menulis ulang artikel dalam Bahasa Inggris, yang kita perlukan adalah translate ke sinonimnya. Contoh, Increase=Enlarge, Raise, Multiply, Intensify. Untuk kebutuhan seperti ini, Babylon cukup OK.

Atau Anda bisa coba software dari kami DISINI.

Tool Untuk Variasi Anchor Text
Pada waktu mempersiapkan artikel, sediakan setting %KEYWORD1% dan %KEYWORD2% serta %LINK1% dan %LINK2%. Free traffic system mengijinkan kita meng-insert masing-masing %KEYWORD1% dan %KEYWORD2% dengan lebih dari 1 keyword. Ini untuk variasi anchor text kita yang akan kita insert lewat %LINK1% dan %LINK2%.

Sedangkan pada masing-masing %LINK1% dan %LINK2%, free traffic system memperbolehkan untuk di-insert lebih dari 1 URL untuk variasi backlinks.

Mungkin hanya itu saja yang bisa saya sampaikan, untuk lebih detilnya, bisa di-download gratis dari situs resmi free traffic system pada bagian “HELP”.

USED PANTIES
Police in Japan are trying to curb an unsavoury trade. In early September, three business men stocked around 90 vending machines in outer Tokyo with used underwear “guaranteed to have been worn by a Japanese schoolgirl.”  Each garment sells for about $29.
After searching the rule books, the police have finally charged the three entrepreneurs with violating the Antique Dealings Law, which stipulates that dealers need a license. Used panties as antiques? The police say that some of the underwear was bought from second hand dealers. The trio may also be charged with swindling, if it can be shown that the panties on sale had not really been worn by female students.

  • Jangan lupa disimpan

Selamat mencoba pasang image di sudut blog…

Memasukkan Adsense Code Untuk Blogger Secara Manual

Filed under: Uncategorized — Masbuddy @ 3:59 am

Here’s another way of inserting Adsense Code to New Blogger Template. Since adding Adsense as Page Element is limited to the setup provided by Blogger.com, you need to manually insert Adsense codes in other areas of the template not provided.

Escaping Adsense Code Before Inserting in Blogger Template

To manually insert Adsense code in new Blogger template, you have to escape HTML characters or convert the HTML codes to HTML entities like these: < to &lt;, > to &gt; and ” to &quot;. Without escaping Adsense HTML codes, Adsense will not work properly. Your Adsense code should look like this example of large Google Ad (XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is the publisher ID):

&amp;lt;script type=&quot;text/javascript&quot;&gt;&lt;!–
google_ad_client = &quot;pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX&quot;;
google_ad_width = 336;
google_ad_height = 280;
google_ad_format = &quot;336×280_as&quot;;
google_ad_type = &quot;text_image&quot;;
google_ad_channel = &quot;&quot;;
google_color_border = &quot;FFFFFF&quot;;
google_color_bg = &quot;FFFFFF&quot;;
google_color_link = &quot;0000FF&quot;;
google_color_text = &quot;000000&quot;;
google_color_url = &quot;6600CC&quot;;
//–&gt;&lt;/script&gt;
&lt;script type=&quot;text/javascript&quot;
src=&quot;http://pagead2…/pagead/show_ads.js&quot;&gt;
&lt;/script&gt;

I have prepared a page to easily escape HTML codes to HTML entities, <a title="Escape or Converte HTML Codes to HTML Entities"

<script type="text/javascript"

</script>

I have prepared a page to easily escape HTML codes to HTML entities, here (opens in new window). Copy and paste your Adsense code to the box provided and click convert. Then, cut and paste the converted or escaped Adsense codes to your Blogger template. Preview it if displayed properly.
Inserting Adsense Code Before or After Blog Title

Insert the converted Adsense code within

, like this:

Adsense code here (before Blog title)



Adsense code here (after Blog title)

Inserting Adsense Code After Blog Title Before Blog Post

Insert the converted Adsense code within

, like this:

Adsense code here (before blog post)



Adsense code here (after blog post)

Inserting Adsense Code Within the Blog Sidebar

Insert the converted Adsense code within

, like this:

Adsense code here (before Blogger widgets)




Adsense code here (after Blogger widgets)

If you want to insert Adsense code between 2 widgets, you have to assign a different sidebar id for each widget affected and add converted Adsense code between them, like this:



Adsense code here (between 2 Blogger widgets)



Inserting Adsense Code Within the Blog Footer

Insert the converted Adsense code within

, like this:

Adsense code here (before Blog footer content)



Adsense code here (after Blog footer content)

For your info, however, there are questions if this kind of Adsense code modification violates Adsense Policy and Adsense TOS. In my opinion, it is not as this is just a server-side scripting. If you view the HTML source code of your Blogger page where you inserted a converted Adsense Code, you will see an unmodified Adsense code. So, there is no code modification in HTML implementation. I will discuss more of this in my next post.

For your info, however, there are questions if this kind of Adsense code modification violates Adsense Policy and Adsense TOS. In my opinion, it is not as this is just a server-side scripting. If you view the HTML source code of your Blogger page where you inserted a converted Adsense Code, you will see an unmodified Adsense code. So, there is no code modification in HTML implementation. I will discuss more of this in my next post.

Here’s another way of inserting Adsense Code to New Blogger Template. Since adding Adsense as Page Element is limited to the setup provided by Blogger.com, you need to manually insert Adsense codes in other areas of the template not provided.
Escaping Adsense Code Before Inserting in Blogger Template

To manually insert Adsense code in new Blogger template, you have to escape HTML characters or convert the HTML codes to HTML entities like these: to > and ” to ". Without escaping Adsense HTML codes, Adsense will not work properly. Your Adsense code should look like this example of large Google Ad (XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is the publisher ID):

&lt;script type="text/javascript"><!–
google_ad_client = "pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX";
google_ad_width = 336;
google_ad_height = 280;
google_ad_format = "336×280_as";
google_ad_type = "text_image";
google_ad_channel = "";
google_color_border = "FFFFFF";
google_color_bg = "FFFFFF";
google_color_link = "0000FF";
google_color_text = "000000";
google_color_url = "6600CC";
//–></script>

Olympic World Records for Most Gold Gathered

Filed under: Uncategorized — Masbuddy @ 3:49 pm

<!–

–>The 29th Summer Olympics have now ended in Beijing, China and the torch has been passed to London, United Kingdom who will host the next summer games in 2012. Over a wonderful two weeks of sport over 40 new world records were set by athletes from across the globe.

Michael Phelps (USA) broke 8 world records in the pool on his way to 8 gold medals which is the most gold medals won at a single Olympic games and taking his overall gold medals tally to 14 the most gold medals won at the Olympics.

On the track Usain Bolt (Jamaica) completed an amazing sprint hat-trick winning gold medals in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 x 100 metres relay while setting a new world record in all three of these events.

The USA team finished second in this year’s medals table behind hosts China but still hold the Guinness World Record for the most gold medals won at the Summer Olympics by a country with a total of 933 gold medals.

A Nobel Perspective

Filed under: Uncategorized — Masbuddy @ 3:28 pm

Saturday, October 17, 2009

President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize has sparked an understandable range of reactions, from surprise and outrage to apologetics for the Nobel Committee’s decision to honor him so prematurely. It’s worth remembering that nominations for the Peace Prize must be received by February 1 of each year, meaning that Obama was nominated less than two weeks after becoming president.
Then again, getting nominated is not difficult. Nominations can be made by, among others, any members of national assemblies and governments; judges on the Inter-Parliamentary Union Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice, or the International Court of Justice; or university professors of history, political science, philosophy, law, or theology. This year saw a record 205 nominations. Unlike the Academy Awards, the Nobel Committee keeps the full list of nominations secret for several years. It was revealed well after the fact, for example, that Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini received nominations—though in Hitler’s case, before he decided to invade Norway.
Perhaps that’s not so ironic when one recalls that Alfred Nobel was an arms dealer and dynamite inventor. But he specified in his will in 1895 that a five-person Nobel Committee elected by the Norwegian Parliament should award the Peace Prize to “the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.” Nominations are considered at a meeting attended by permanent advisers to the Nobel Institute, which consists of the Institute’s director and research director and a small number of Norwegian academics with expertise in subject areas relating to the prize. Some nominees have even campaigned for the award during this evaluation period. Oil magnate Armand Hammer spent an estimated $5 million in 1989, for instance, trying to sway the Norwegians’ decision. He made it to the short list, but lost out to the 14th Dalai Lama.
The five-person committee selects the laureate in October. The prize is presented annually in Oslo, in the presence of the king, on December 10, the anniversary of Nobel’s death. In 2009, four out of the five key deciders were women. Though the committee seeks a unanimous decision, the winner may receive a simple majority of three votes.
So considering the Nobel Committee’s inner workings and its history, President Obama’s award is perhaps not so surprising after all.

History of Guinness World Records

Filed under: Uncategorized — Masbuddy @ 3:14 pm

Guinness World Records is the universally recognized authority on record-breaking achievement. First published in 1955, the annual Guinness World Records book is published in more than 100 countries and 25 languages and is one of the highest-selling books under copyright of all time with more than 3 million copies sold annually across the globe. Guinness World Records celebrated its 50th anniversary edition in 2004, a year after the sale of its 100 millionth copy.

Guinness World Records also annually publishes the Gamer’s Edition; a records book devoted solely to the world of computer gaming and high score record achievements. The Guinness World Records website receives more than 11 million visitors a year.

Guinness World Records is part of the Jim Pattison Group, one of Canada’s largest privately owned companies which is a conglomerate of interests, including entertainment, advertising, broadcasting, grocery stores and automotive retailing.

The History of Guinness World Records

During a shooting party in Country Wexford, Ireland, in 1951, Sir Hugh Beaver – the Managing Director of the Guinness Brewery – was involved in a dispute as to whether the golden plover was Europe’s fastest game bird, but in the host’s library he couldn’t find the answer using any of his reference books. In 1954, another argument arose as to whether the golden plover was faster than the grouse. Sir Hugh realized that such questions must be causing arguments in everywhere – in pubs, in homes, on shooting fields, – and that a definitive containing the answers would be of great use to the world (and would sell more Guinness!).

Chris Chataway, the record-breaking athlete who was working as an under-brewer in the Guinness Park Royal Brewery in London, recommended twins Norris and Ross McWhirter as the ideal duo to compile the book. Chataway had met the brothers at university, and knew of their love of facts. The twins, who had been working as sports journalists since 1950 – and also ran an agency in London supplying facts and figures to Fleet Street newspapers – were commissioned to create what would become The Guinness Book of Records.

The first edition was bound on 27 August 1955, and was an instant success, becoming Britain’s number one bestseller before Christmas. It then gained popularity and recognition with incredible speed to become the leading authority for world records around the globe.

Guinness World Records Today

More than 50 years later, we have seen the printing and binding of the 100 millionth copy of what has become a worldwide publishing phenomenon. Guinness World Records, as it is now known, is the biggest selling copyright book ever published.

In 2008, Guinness World Records is truly a global multimedia company. We employ more than 50 people across editorial, sales and marketing, records management, research, design, and administration. We have offices in London and New York, and agencies and representatives across the globe.

We’re proud to have a talented team that hails from all around the world, and who are knowledgeable about diverse markets and regions, as well as fluent in multiple languages. Languages spoken by Guinness World Records staff include English, German, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, French, Mandarin, Portuguese, Romanian, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Turkish, Greek, Arabic, Japanese and Hungarian.

Corporate Responsibility

When you print 3.5 million books every year, it’s important to make sure that the planet isn’t paying the price. To this end, we’ve been very conscious of ensuring that we use accredited materials in our printing, and that the processes for paper production and the like are as environmentally-friendly as possible.

GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS
The paper used to print the book comes from managed forests, and is manufactured by UPM Kymi, Finland. The production site has been awarded the EU Flower licence, is Chain-of-Custody certified, and operates environmental systems certified to both ISO 14001 and EMAS in order to ensure sustainable production.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the right title? Is it Guinness World Records or Guinness Book of Records?

The correct title of both the book and the company is Guinness World Records. It has changed slightly a few times over the years, but since the 2000 edition we have definitively settled on Guinness World Records, and that’s the registered book, trademark and company name.

Are you still affiliated with the Guinness Brewery?

We are no longer owned by the Guinness Brewery or any of its affiliates. In February 2008, Guinness World Records became part of the Jim Pattison Group, one of Canada’s largest privately owned companies which is a conglomerate of interests, including advertising, broadcasting, grocery stores and automotive retailing.

How does each new edition differ from the previous one?

By more than most people expect! There are obviously core records – shortest and tallest people, oldest people, and so on – that are perennially featured in the book. But up to 80% of the content of each edition is brand new each year. Keeping the content fresh is uppermost in our minds when we start to put the book together each year.

With new record attempts happening all the time, who decides what goes into the book and what doesn’t?

Ultimately, the decision about what goes in and what doesn’t lies with the editor-in-chief, Craig Glenday. Editorial independence is very important to Guinness World Records – we can’t be bought, and will judge all records on their merit – but the ultimate responsibility for putting together the most interesting, fun and informative book possible lies with Craig. And as our sales keep growing, it’s pretty clear that he’s getting it right…
