the News for February

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

I’ve been maintaining Isamu directory, when i say maintaining i mean adding categories, adding good sites and other things, to give it more content. There are lot’s of categories empty with PR so i thought i’d exploit them. You also can have your site listed there but it’s not free!

Till the end of February TheSquat is free!

TheSquat is all free till the end of February and beginning of March! So get your site listed there! I’ll be picky on the sites that gets included though, don’t submit crap!

Would i do this if Search Engines didn’t Exist?

Wednesday, February 21st, 2007

If you are a webmaster, you ever asked yourself that question? When you do a site, is it for the user or for the search engines? Or both?

Would i do this if search engines didn’t exist?

If you read the google webmasters guideline which is just PR4, it should be PR7 minimum, that’s one weird thing but, they use that questions as a way to ‘gives us insights’. Well let me give you some insights… Here is the question i would really ask:

Would i do this if google adsense didn’t exist?

Googlebombs Being Minimized

Friday, February 16th, 2007

I’m kind of late about the googlebomb subject. If you don’t know what googlebomb is, well it is a term you employ when someone tries to rank for a keywords with no traffic and meaning whatsoever, but just for political or personal reasons.

Late in 2005, for instance, a website containing informations about George Bush ranked for ‘miserable failure’, which is completely of political issues. That can create a lot of problems, google claims also there are actually 100 active googlebombs on the web right now.

You can read on the official google webmaster blog, that they can’t change things by hand, google works by algorithm and is automatic, sometimes they have to remove listings on a SERP (search engine results page) because of violent content, shocking content, or spam. But they don’t want to stop the googlebombs by hand (they can stop it).

So google came up with a new algorithm that should minimize the effects of googlebombs, it was back in January 2007.

I was planning to do a conspiracy site and googlebomb bush with some keywords, i guess it’s gonna be tough! :D

Form Auto Filler (FAF) for Site Sift Directories

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

Set up FormAutoFiller to submit to 4 different types of directories scripts:

- Set up FAF for phpLD
- Set up FAF for indexscript
- Set up FAF for Esyndicat

Set up FAF for Site Sift:

1. The Title
Type - text
Name - title
Value - [Your website’s Name]

2. The URL
Type - text
Name - url
Value - [Your website’s URL]

3. The Description
Type - textarea
Name - description
Value - [Your website’s Description]

4. Your Email
Type - text
Name - email
Value - [Your Email]

Basically, site-sift and indexscript uses the same name for each fields, so you might only need to create just one auto form for both of those scripts instead of 2 different ones.

Form Auto Filler (FAF) for Esyndicat Directories

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

Previously:

- Set up FAF for phpLD
- Set up FAF for indexscript

And Now for Esyndicat Powered Directories:

1. The Title
Type - text
Name - title
Value - [Your website’s Name]

2. The URL
Type - text
Name - url
Value - [Your website’s URL]

3. The Description
Type - textarea
Name - description
Value - [Your website’s Description]

4. Your Email
Type - text
Name - email
Value - [Your Email]

Read the previous posts about FAF (look above links) to understand how to set it up.

Set Up Form Auto Filler for Indexscript Directories

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

I explained how to use FAF for phpLD Directories in my last post submit 4 times faster to directories.

Here is how to use it for all directories that uses the script Indexscript.com:

1. The URL
Type - text
Name - url
Value - [Your website’s url]

2. The Title
Type - text
Name - title
Value - [Your website’s title]

3. The Description
Type - textarea
Name - description
Value - [Your website’s description]

4. Keywords of the Site
Type - text
Name - keywords
Value - [Your website’s keywords]

5. Your Email
Type - text
Name - email
Value - [Your email]

Different from phpLD for 2 things. 1st thing is you don’t have to add your name, second is you must give a range of relevant keywords for your site. So indeed i recommend you set it up perfectly for Indexscript directories. Many directories uses that script!

Enjoy,

Submit To Directories 4 Times Faster

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007
Directory Psycho, are you one of them?

So what’s the deal here!

I was on DP forum and stumbled upon that thread: Submit to 100 Directories…
As i am interested in submitting faster to directories, i always looked for a kind of software, that fill down forms automatically for each site i want to submit when i’m on a directory.

I am used to submit manually and add all informations by hand, but i have created more than 20 sites, and now submitting them 1 by 1 is a pain in the ass if i may.

The solution is Form Auto Filler. Go to their download page and download the software, then install it.

Also you might be interested to take a glance at Rian’s site 3r5.com, he is the one that shown me where i could find this software, thank you dude!
Open the program then click New, give the form a name (name of your site) and set up the form fields:

1. The Title
Type - text
Name - TITLE
Value - [Your website’s Name]

2. The URL
Type - text
Name - URL
Value - [Your website’s URL]

3. Description
Type - textarea
Name - DESCRIPTION
Value - [Description of your website]

4. Owner Name
Type - text
Name - OWNER_NAME
Value - [Your name and surname]

5. Owner Email
Type - Text
Name - OWNER_EMAIL
Value - [Your email address]

A few notes:

- [updated 15/02/2007] Tool works only when using Internet Explorer, that’s the only problem that i found (I seriously hate microsoft’s products).

-That kind of fields set up works only for phpld (i guess) and probably not esyndicat, so as soon as i figure out what kind of fields esyndicat works with, i will post it.

- You will have to choose manually the category of each site you want to submit to if you use that software, so i highly recommend it’s usage when you plan on submitting to directories in mass.

- Everybody knows how auto submissions softwares gives me acnea. Actually Auto Form Filler ain’t a submissions software, you can use it for pratically just anything! Not only directories!

I’m gonna give some more tips bout that tool as soon as i will use it, i haven’t been submitting sites for so long! Probably a year. I never had any PR3 so i guess i’m pretty good at directories submissions ( if i was that good i’d have PR5 at any PR update… ) ;)

Insane Online Games - New Game Site!

Monday, February 12th, 2007
iogmario.jpg

Just want to tell the world that i opened my free game site: Insane Online Games
This is a free online game where you absolutely don’t need to register, you can play games that i judge the best of the internet. I did that site mainly to relax, cause i constantly look for games sites on the web, and besides Excessively.net i don’t know any other good ones that doesn’t open pop-ups and where we don’t need to register, so that’s it!

I’m adding games manually and expect to reach 500 games listed by April 2007, you should expect this game site to become a big known game site. I’m not going to stop adding games there!

Enjoy!

Youtube Takedown many Users

Thursday, February 8th, 2007

There are a few users on youtube that actually displays what i want to see. Whether it is about Jordan Maxwell, Alex Jones, David Icke and all the others big name.
There are good documentaries about religion, history of religion, theology, conspiracy, conspiracy theory, UFOlogy, on youtube and Google Video.

But Youtube tookdown 2 of the major users, that had that kind of documentaries, something like 50% of all the videos i liked to watch are GONE. And i understand there are copyrighting stuffs, but people have to know about some things no matter what, i want to show deep respects to those users who got their account ‘ banned ‘ and ‘ suspended ‘.

So i want to give you the solution, before your favorite users are banned, you can still save you favorite videos from youtube, google video, live video and more, with KeepVid! You will need a FLV player to play the videos though. So if you feel like your favorite users are keen on doing illegitimates stuff, save their videos, sooner or later they’ll be banned.

Youtube Account Suspended

And keep those videos!

Link Doping by Wikipedia, the Big Joke

Tuesday, February 6th, 2007

I was doing the What Makes a Good Site Article, when i stumbled upon the Link Doping article of Wikipedia.

You guys ever visited Wikipedia? Isn’t it just a big farce? I mean they are link doping 10 times more than i do, it’s even worst than Yahoo! Directory.

Read the article and look at the screenshot below, something that you should pay more attentions:

Wikipedia the Self-Claimed Link Whore

For a while i’ve been seeing wikipedia on top of any other sites for many types of keywords. Don’t you? You’ll see in the red area that ‘ Link doping helps ranking high ‘.
In the article they also call Link Doping, Link Whoring!

Wikipedia the Self Claimed Link Whored Directory!
