In Adsense, Google Analytics on September 26, 2013 by Your Friend Tagged: , , , ,

While the AdSense reports do not show how much money you make from the pages viewed on your site, Google Analytics does. Be sure to associate your Analytics with your AdSense accounts and then view the AdSense report in Google Analytics.

To link your Analytics account with your AdSense account you must link Analytics to AdWords. See https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1704341.

How to view the AdSense Report in Analytics:

  1. In the left-side panel, click on “Content”.
  2. Click on “AdSense”.
  3. Then click on “Overview”.

There you will find your estimated AdSense Revenue from the clicks on ads, revenue from page visits per 1000 visits, number of ads clicked, number of ads viewed, and more.

How to Find Subdomains of a Domain or Website

In Uncategorized on April 16, 2013 by Your Friend Tagged: , ,

If you are in search of subdomains for a particular domain or website, you can find some very complicated instructions online. The instructions below are very simple. There is only 2 steps, with one optional step, if needed.

  1. Go to http://www.site24x7.com/find-ip-address-of-web-site.html and enter the domain, i.e., answers.com. This will show the IP address for their main domain. In this case, it shows 67.196.156.65 .
  2. Go to http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/web-sites-on-web-server/ and enter the IP address. It will show the subdomains on that particular server.
  3. However, they may have subdomains on a different server. If you know of other subdomains that belong to that domain enter that, as well. In this case I entered http://glutenfree.answers.com/. It turned out a different IP address: 67.196.156.214. This shows additional subdomains.

That’s it! Simple, right?

Find Dell Service Tag Windows 7

In Uncategorized on February 14, 2013 by Your Friend Tagged: , , , ,

There are a number of ways to find a Dell service tag (serial number), however, if the actual physical tag itself has worn off from the bottom of your laptop, and you’re using Windows 7 (which does not work with the Dell wizard), you may think you’re at a loss. You’re not.

Using just one single command prompt will fetch it for you. If you’re not familiar with command prompts, it is a dos window where you type commands. Below I list below how to start the windows command prompt window as well as the command that will retrieve the serial number.

How to Open Command Prompt:

  1. Click the “Start” icon (Windows Icon) in the lower left-hand corner of your screen.
  2. In the search field type “cmd” (without the quotes).
  3. Hit “Enter” on your keyboard.

Command for finding Dell Service Tag:

  1. Type “wmic bios get serialnumber” (without the quotes).
  2. Hit “Enter” on your keyboard.

You will see the 3 new lines appear:

Serial Number

44ABCD (example)

C:\Users\UserName>

 

The line with the numbers and letters is the service tag number, also known as the serial number.

WordPress Too Many Redirects

In Errors, Wordpress Org on February 2, 2013 by Your Friend Tagged: , , ,

After countless hours trying to fix a static page with too many redirects, I finally found a solution! I have experienced this before while using the self-hosted WordPress plugin, “Redirection“. Little did I know that it automatically creates a redirect (303 redirect) when you change the name of a post or a page. I thought WordPress was creating those. However, after in-depth research on the subject today, I discovered it was the plugin. So, if you use this plugin and change a title of any post or page there is no need to manually set one in the plugin.

How to correct “Too Many Redirects” or “Looped Redirects”

A loop redirect is when a chain of redirects exists for one post or page. How you fix this issue, is to revert back to a backup of your “htaccess” file that is found in the root directory “public_html” file.

If you have access to an ftp client (you can download it free at FileZilla), you just take the file you have on your PC and overwrite the one in your file. Or you can do it via your cpanel if you have one, or know how to maneuver around in one.

That’s it. Hopefully you have caused the redirect after your last backup, or you have several older ones. This should work on any self-hosted WordPress theme.

If you have any questions, just leave a comment below. I hope someone finds this helpful.

Prevent Copy and Paste

In Wordpress Org on January 21, 2013 by Your Friend Tagged:

If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog, you may be tired of other bloggers stealing your content. Below I have an image of a simple script to prevent copy and paste of your text in your blog or website. Since anything written on the web, or elsewhere, is automatically copyrighted, you need to protect your content. A copyright statement on your blog doesn’t seem to do any good anymore. It may defer those who are ethical and knowledgeable, but others I have run into do not understand copyright laws, even when explained, or are under the impression if they do not see a copyright statement that you content is up for grabs. You can make it more difficult to steal your content by inserting a simple script in your header file, right before the end header code.

I hope you find this code useful. I added to my Twenty-Ten Theme and it worked like a charm.
