8 Symptoms Of Computer Virus [Security]

symptoms of virusesWe Know that, despite the widespread use of anti-virus, over half of the country’s computers are infected with viruses, we must conclude that the infections are due to bad habits cultivated over the Web, than to the inefficiency of virus. So, I prepared a few tips trying to get away as much from poisons.

  • Windows Shooting Alone.

You are browsing the Internet and come up windows for advertisements or different Web sites, without you having anything tight, make no mistake, you’re infected.

  • Performance Degradation.

Computer does not turn over the command of Windows, just take the socket. Lock all the time. It is too slow. Resumes alone, you’re infected.

  • Suddenly Pop Up Error Messages.

When many messages begin to appear out of memory, disk space, it fails in application, etc., is a clear sign that a virus may be behind them.

  • Home Of The Browser is Changed.

Pay attention when the home page of your favorite browser is changed for no apparent reason, as many spyware do this.

  • Social Networking Profiles, or Your Email Account Automatically Send Messages With the Virus to Your Contacts.

If your friends start to complain that they are getting your messages with viruses, it is certain that your computer is infected.

  • The Command CTRL+ALT+DEL No Longer Works.

In any version of Windows, one of the simplest ways to check for viruses is simultaneously pressing the CTRL+ALT+DEL, as the most important virus disables this command to initiate the task manager.

  • Antivirus No Longer Update.

If your anti-virus begins to acknowledge failure update, even if its connection to the Internet is operating normally, is a great sign of a virus installed.

  • Social Networks Hacked.

When your Orkut, Twitter, Facebook, etc are hacked, surely there is virus on your computer.

10+ Useful Android Applications For Webmasters

Android AppsThe rule is to be connected to the Internet. Not be connected to the internet is like being sick.  Communicate to people the bad news: “Today, I’m not working, I’m sick!” Or “Today, I can not go out at night, I’m sick.” I’ll die!I was without net! “

In the case of a Webmaster, a programmer, web designer, editor of a blog (me), there are times of day that had no apparent usefulness.

One day we will find that we need breaks, we need to rest, we need to stop the mind from time to time. But until then, while we wait for someone in the car or at the mall, while walking in public transport, we can test the code, access via FTP to our server, test color schemes for a new design in our Android.

Let’s see some applications that can increase our productivity in those moments that have nothing to do. That is, work more…

#1 – AndFTP

The AndFTp is an FTP client/FTP/FTPS allows to connect from Android to a remote server via the protocol specified to perform:

  • Download and upload files
  • Rename, delete and copy files
  • Change permissions on folders and files
  • Create and delete folders

You can configure multiple links to different FTP accounts. The interface is easy to use.


#2 – HTMLEditor

An application for programmers to edit HTML, PHP, ASP, CSS and JS on Android.


#3 – Photoshop

  • Apply some effects

#4 – View Web Source

The need to see the source code of a web page is common to all web designers. This application lets you open the source code of any page in a text editor, where we can analyze the code, modify it and write up some notes and send it via email to verify later.


#5 – Magic Color Picker

The ideas come in unexpected places and moments. If you need to study the best color to an idea that came out of nowhere, walking by the sea, this application allows you to do this. The only problem is that you can not record or export color codes … will have to point these codes.


#6 – Mobile GA

I know some webmasters who consult the statistics of the website every 5 minutes. It’s a compulsive behavior, obsessive and depressing. But if life were only the rainbow … would not taste the same.

This application allows Android to access Google Analytics through its API. The information does not pass through the servers of third parties. Therefore, it is a safe way to access the statistics when you are playing football with friends or jogging or watching a movie at the cinema.  There is nothing more important than query Google Analytics …

When driving, please do not use GA Mobile!


#7 – WordPress Mobile

Enforcement official WordPress for Android, which allows for example:

  • Configure and manage multiple blogs
  • Manage and respond to comments
  • Create and edit post, categories and tags
  • Create and edit pages

An open source application for Android for you to play …  Only to access your account on facebook. You can not play Farmville …


#9 – Twitter for Android

Official Twitter application for Android. Twitter is even a social conversation in real time, anywhere, anytime.


#10 – Thinking Space

The Thinking Space is an application to recommend.  I think a good idea to organize our ideas visually through diagrams and charts, establishing relationships and hierarchies.


#11 – Freelancer Ex12131

This application is a joke … Have you ever had a client who wanted the job done yesterday? Usually it is one customer who believes that success is instantaneous and that the only thing separating you from the Ferrari you always dreamed about is you … your hired web design work for over 24 hours and where is the website?  Will it take long?

In this application, you will find about 200 excuses, some funny, so you’ll get some peace of mind for a few hours.

It is obvious that the best approach is contractually execution time of each phase of web design project. And hire a secretary with a sweet voice to serve customers who need friendship and attention. But there is always room for humor.


#12 – ConnectBot

If you need to access your web server via SSH, this application lets you do this on your Android.


#13 – HTML Test

Website Authority – Tips By Matt Cutts

Earlier I shared Matt Cutts’s video regarding whether to keep Tag Cloud or not.

Now here we are going to discuss about the tips shared by Matt Cutts regarding “Website Authority”.

White Hat vs. Black Hat

In this video, Matt Cutts answers the following question:

How does a website can compete for good positioning in Google, using only White Hat techniques in industries dominated by spammers if Google takes months to respond to a complaint of SPAM, and reacts when there are already other spam websites with new Black Hat techniques, in the first positions of Google?

How can a website compete using only white hat techniques? Let’s look at the response from Matt Cutts, after the video:


SEO is about communication and establishing a website with search engines. The aim is to position a website in the first organic results of search engines when searching for keywords that are relevant to this website in order to get qualified traffic and free of those search engines.

There are techniques for such communication and the relationship with search engines and Google itself provides a set of guidelines for webmasters . SEO techniques that confirm to these guidelines are And White Hat SEO techniques that violate these recommendations are Black Hat Moreover that some Black Hat techniques are ethically and other acts are illegal and unlawful acts by criminal relevance.

White Hat Vs Black Hat


Difference in White Hat vs. Black Hat Websites

A website that uses a technique of SEO Black Hat, we call SPAM website is designed to last for weeks or months. Google learns the technique, changes its algorithm to cancel it and penalizes all websites that use this technique Black Hat This discovery may take days, weeks or months.  But it is inevitable.

Thus, the operator of SPAM websites already know that each site has a relatively short life cycle. When the spammer has a well positioned website is already working on his successor, who will use a technique different from Black Hat and innovative. All SPAM websites are born already condemned to a sudden death.

A website that uses White Hat SEO techniques is a project that is not condemned to such a sudden death. Thus, a website that meets the guidelines of Google has a lifetime of potentially much more than a spam website.

That is the advantage that a webmaster must exploit to win the spammers that use Black Hat techniques.


Website Authority

A website that publishes quality content and relevant to their visitors and that can promote such content, gains visibility on the Internet. And it will get the recognition that Google is an authority in their subject area. As this recognition of authority grows along with Google, the website will get more and better positioning in the organic results of Google, in its subject area.

As the website has a short life cycle, the medium term, an authority that will achieve a SPAM website will never be able to achieve. SPAM website does not have enough life time to achieve such authority. Until that authority because it involves a journey natural, no shortcuts …

The reputation that we are an authority on certain matters is how the progression in their studies. And take a Graduate or a Graduate. And then a graduate. And, if you continue to study, can still get a Masters and a PhD. And its progression increases their authority in the field you are studying. A website that uses Black Hat techniques can not live long enough to take a graduate or undergraduate.

The concept of authority of a website (domain authority) is a concept related to the concept of trust of a website (domain trust). In the case of trust, the analysis is more qualitative. It is important to know who is the link to the website and to whom you link to the website.  In the case of authority, there is a more quantitative analysis, based on statistical information and looking for the quantity and diversity of backlinks pointing to a website, for the time evolution of backlinks and the diversity of the website pages that get backlinks.

These two concepts do not live apart. You have to trust Google and need to gain authority, that the visibility of its content can be reached.

And the result is something as simple as that. A website with authority may publish a page about a subject and get a good short-term positioning in Google, without any external backlink to this page. And a website without authority may publish a page on the same subject, get dozens of backlinks to that page and be positioned below the website with authority. Sometimes, a license shall publish dozens of articles on a particular matter, but your opinion has no weight and has no followers, does not alter the evolution of ideas on the subject. Appears a PhD who publishes a single article on the same subject, and this view becomes the dominant view. The PhD is an authority on the matter. The license is not an authority on the matter.

If it is true that in the short term, a website that uses White Hat techniques may not be able to compete with websites that use Black Hat techniques in the medium and long term, it has all the conditions to win any SPAM website.


SPAM Abuse Of Websites That Use Techniques Black Hat

Google encourages webmasters in Webmaster Tools.

If in a given market, there are too many websites to use Black Hat techniques, it is legitimate for a Google webmaster report.  Who uses techniques Black Hat is not competing honestly, just do not deserve respect or reserve.

The complaint of SPAM is IMPORTANT. What happens when you search a specific keyword and can not find a single website quality? Only find trash.  Frustrated and lose some trust in Google. If there is much spam in Google’s organic results, Google users will lower their expectations of finding the information they use when searching Google and will seek such information offline or on Twitter or Facebook. If you bet on Google for traffic for your website, you have every interest in keeping the organic results clean of SPAM. You want Google users trust the Google search and use Google, because they do not use, who will receive less traffic from Google is you …

And, if you report spam websites that compete with your website, you get rid of an unfair competition. Who cheat, deserves to be expelled from the game.


SEO Marketing

The SEO is also marketing. If you publish quality content and is not able to promote that content, no one will link to your content. Nobody will read your content. Your website will not achieve the visibility necessary for Google to know that you exist.

A recurring idea is about SEO: Content is KING. Content is King It is partly true, If you write quality content that is relevant, which is searched, your website is able to obtain authority from Google. Because people who read quality content, sharing this information, references its website, writes a tweet or an article on its content with a link to your website.  And this social conversation, links to your website, make your website visible to Google.

But if you’re not able to promote your content, who will read? Who will share and referenced?

A strategy that Matt Cutts addressed to compete with SPAM sites is to conquer the authority, without competing directly with the spam websites. For example, in the commercial market, very competitive, with too many spam websites, it is a good idea to find a market related, but no less competitive, these spam websites. This strategy is valid for any competitive market, even those who do not enjoy the company of SPAM websites. Then follow the path needed to win reputation with Google Website authoritarian in this thematic area. Finally, moving towards market competition more competitive.

For example, the services market psychology.  A website can gain authority to publish quality content and free about psychology. The psychologist can begin by writing a blog. The market for information on psychology is not as competitive as the market for psychology. Also because, if the psychologist to write with some frequency, you get relevant traffic from keywords consist of 3 or 4 words, which are much less competitive keywords that one or two words. And after your website gain authority, may enter the market of psychology services, with another competitive ability, because that authority gained in the blog.

Do not assess whether competition in Google for psychology services is very fierce or not. It has some Google AdWords ads. For a psychologist who also wants to be a webmaster, I am sure that the keywords most important in terms of traffic, are not easy and justify the use of this technique. The idea is to compete in the positioning of the organic results of keywords are less competitive until the website conquer authority in your subject area ..Then proceed to related keywords and more competitive.

The technique applies to a market dominated by spammers or any very competitive market. But SEO is not magic. If you want magic, go to the dark side … Use Black Hat techniques But do not forget that when you die, you’ll find Matt Cutts working as a doorman at the Paradise …

Maximize Earning By Showing Ads To Search Engine Visitors

New Visitors vs. Readers

Readers of a blog are those visitors who return to the blog. And usually subscribe to the RSS Feed or receive notifications of the publication of new material through email, social networks, or simply visiting the blog regularly.  Visitors are able to retain the blog.

monetize

There are several reasons not to display Google AdSense ads to this group of visitors:

  • They know the layout of the blog and the ads and are blind to ads. So, do not click on ads.
  • If you display the ads for this group of visitors, each page view account for ad impressions and CTR is low, will reduce the CTR of your ads, Google AdSense, which may lower the amount you receive per click.
  • Loyalty bonus: If you are regular readers, why not reward that loyalty by not displaying Google AdSense ads to that group of visitors?
  • Brand Protection: A new visitor lands by parachute into your blog does not have a relationship of identification with the brand of your blog. But his readers have already established such a relationship of identification with your brand.  Now the Google AdSense too appears on websites like SPAM.  It is a type of advertising associated with low quality websites, with exceptions. Again, WITH EXCEPTIONS. If you display Google AdSense ads only to those new visitors may enjoy the benefits of advertising, without damaging the relationship we establish with their readers your brand.

There are several criteria for determining what is a new visitor. A simple criterion is to qualify as a new visitor all the visitors coming to the blog after researching on Google.

Typically, this visitor did not know the blog. And often you access a blog page that does not correspond exactly to the search. Therefore, the dropout rate is high.  And you can not retain a significant percentage of these visitors.

When you display Google AdSense ads to this group of visitors, you are to give each visitor an option to exit from his blog as an alternative to closing the tab or browser window. And you can make money with it.

The display Google AdSense ads affect the loyalty of new visitors? Not studied this matter.  My experience is that it depends on the quality of the content published and also the space that you assign to the Google AdSense ads.

If you book the room more profitable and visible in your layout for ads, I’m pretty sure that this option will undermine the loyalty of new visitors.

How Do You monetize your blog? If your answer is adsense and direct advertising, in which case you really need to use space more cost effective layout for advertising. There’s going to have to try and minimize the effects of exposure to the ads, for new visitors who do not click on advertising to reduce the dropout rate. Regarding who click on advertising, they have been. You missed the visitors and won the money from advertising. Will have to assess whether the price is fair and whether there is more profitable to raise the rate of new visitors who return to the blog and become readers.


Who Sees Ads WordPress Plugin

Through this advertising manager, you can create a set of rules to determine which are the visitors who see the advertising on your blog.

The two most commonly used rules are:

  • If Visitor comes from a search engine, display If Visitor comes from a search engine, display
  • If Any condition, don’t display If Any condition, do not display

Thus, advertising is displayed to all visitors coming from search engines, including Google. And it appears to all other visitors.

But as you can see in the picture posted below, there are several criteria to determine who will view the advertising, you can configure.

rules

After setting the rules about who is going to display advertising, place the Adsense code on the configuration page of the plugin as you can see in the image below, save the configuration of that block ads and can publish this ad unit.

adcode

The plugin Who Sees Ads limits the number of Google AdSense ads to be published in accordance with the rules of Google itself. So if you try to publish more than the number of ads allowed by Google, this plugin automatically limit the maximum number allowed by Google.

This plugin does not work with WP Super Cache.


Solution In PHP

Add this code to functions.php file:



 function scratch99_fromasearchengine(){
  $ref = $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];
  $SE = array('/search?', 'images.google.', 'web.info.com', 'search.', 'del.icio.us/search', 'soso.com', '/search/', '.yahoo.');
  foreach ($SE as $source) {
    if (strpos($ref,$source)!==false) return true;
  }
  return false;
 }
 

And then in the files of the template where you want to publish Google AdSense ads, add the following code


 if (function_exists('scratch99_fromasearchengine')) {
  if (scratch99_fromasearchengine()) {
  PUT THE ADSENSE CODE HERE
  }
 } 

Javascript Solution That Works With WP Super Cache

This solution in Javascript is very useful for blogs with high traffic and using WP Super Cache.

Add the file to your adsense.js template in the same folder of the remaining php files with the code:

var ref = document.referrer;
 var sevisitor;
 var SE = new Array('web.info.com', 'search.', 'del.icio.us/search', 'soso.com', '.yahoo.','/url','/search','.google.','.ask.','.baidu.','.bing.','.aol.','.answers.');
 for ( var source in SE){
 var match = ref.indexOf(SE[source]);
 if (match !=-1) {
 sevisitor=true;
 } 

 function adsenseTop(){
 if (sevisitor){
 var large = '<script type="text/javascript"><!-- n
 google_ad_client = ""; n
 /* 336x280 Content Top, created 7/24/09 */ n
 google_ad_slot = ""; n
 google_ad_width = 336; n
 google_ad_height = 280; n
 //--> n
 </script> n
 <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> n
 </script> n
 ';
 document.write(large);
 }
 } 

In the above example, it created a function for a given ad unit: function adsenseTop (). You must put code in their Adsense ad code in that function.  And create another name for functions with other ad units.

Then in the template php file where you want to publish your AdSense block, add the code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="adsense.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript">adsenseTop();</script>
