Late last year, Google made a move to encrypt user searches to enhance the security of their users’ data. Although this is great for users, it makes things more difficult for webmasters, because encrypted organic traffic now shows the keyword (not provided) in those instances. Fortunately, there is something you can do to obtain more information from Google Analytics when keywords are not provided.
If you work on your blog a lot, you’re likely generating unwanted Google AdSense and Google Analytics impressions. There are a number of tutorials out there that show you how to prevent AdSense ads from displaying if you’re logged into WordPress. However, these involve modifying template files which can be a nuisance and time consuming. Ergo the Google AdSense and Google Analytics Remover plugin for WordPress.
It’s very easy to flash ClockworkMod recovery using the free ROM Manager app for Android. However, if you want to flash the nifty new ClockworkMod Touch with ROM Manager, you’ll need to use the pay version. Fortunately, the recovery image itself is still available for free and can be installed manually.
Some time ago, I wrote a post on how to download flash video from any website using Firefox and Firebug. Since then Google Chrome has become my browser of choice, and it has a great debugger built into it, which makes it even easier. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to download video from YouTube with Google Chrome.
Most information you’ll find about tethering with Android, shows you how to tether Android using an application called PdaNet. The problem with PdaNet is that the free version restricts you to http sites only, and you have to get the paid version for https connections. If you’re prepared to put a little elbow grease into it and you have a USB cable to connect the phone, you can learn how to tether Android without root for free for http and https sites as well.
In October last year, Google officially announced Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich, aka ICS) and the first phone to run it, the Galaxy Nexus. It wasn’t long before HTC announced ICS would be coming to their advanced handsets as well, in “early 2012”. If you’re as anxious as I am to try out Ice Cream Sandwich on your EVO 3D, I’m pleased to tell you that some working builds have surfaced!
Anyone who owns a blog is well aware that content is king. However, developing a lot of original quality content is often easier said than done. That being said, you may have a wealth of free content at your very fingertips of which you aren’t even aware: your search history.
Update:Now getting free content from your Google History is easier than ever. Check out my new free tool to download Google History.
Update: e(RINGLE) has incorporated my algorithm into his P3 for Empire Avenue Chrome extension. Use his extension instead of mine, because it includes what I built and much more! If you already installed mine, be sure to uninstall it before installing P3, or some weird things can happen.
Recently, I started playing in a fantasy social media stock exchange, called Empire Avenue. It took me a while to get a handle on what moves the prices, and I’m still learning. With some help from Chris Pirillo, I think I’ve finally got a good handle on it and he’s helped me start a tool that can help you build a sound Empire Avenue portfolio too.
Some time ago, my web host disabled the server-side script for my Amazon Niche Store due to the large load it was causing on the web server. Unfortunately, this rendered the plugin useless and many Amazon Niche Stores died along with it. I’ve essentially rewritten the entire plugin, making it easier to use and improved its interaction with my server to prevent future issues. I’m proud to announce the Free WordPress Store for Amazon Associates.
