Activate Google Multiple Login in same Browser

Posted by Golden Dragon In | 0 comments»
Normally we all have few email accounts maintained rather than using a single email account. It seems to be useless to someone, but in fact it is more effective to maintain few email accounts just to get rid from spam and bulky emails.

But sometimes you might have disappointed when it comes to log into two or more Gmail accounts. If you need to log into two or more Gmails, you need either to use two separate browsers or log out from one and log into the other.

But most of us are still not aware that Google has introduced multiple account sign in feature. With this now you can log into multiple accounts at the same browser. So that hereafter you don't want to worry about changing browsers to log into two different Gmail accounts at the same time.

Let's see how you can activate this option on your Google Account.

First you need to log into one of your Gmail accounts. Make sure you tick "Stay signed in" checkbox when you sign in.

Then go to the below URL.
https://accounts.google.com/optintoaccountchooser

Then add the desired accounts to your Google account with relevant passwords.

The below image shows a browser which is used to log in with two different Gmail accounts.


If you are using a shared computer or a public computer, this method is not recommended.

Rotating Social Icons and Email Subscribe Widget

Posted by Golden Dragon In | 0 comments»
Any good blog designer would know that if he add a  follow widget to his blog, the site traffic may increase due to the subscriptions. It has a potential to retain the interested visitors and boost the site revisit conversion ratio.

Recently I have seen that many bloggers have added social bookmarking icons to their blogs. But most of their added widgets are not looking good on their blogs and some of them are really untidy as well. So I have thought of designing a widget where you can add subscriptions for your main social bookmarking sites and by email.

Rotating Social Icon and Email Subscribe Widget
The most interesting part here is the bookmarking buttons are rotating when you take your mouse pointer over the image. The rotating hover effect is designed for the Facebook, Google plus, Twitter, and RSS feed icons. Below the icons, I added an email subscription widget where your visitors can subscribe for email updates. This is solely designed in a way where you can copy and paste in a html/javascript widget. No need to do any xml modifications. All you have to do is replacing the coloured text according to your details.


The below image is the final outcome when you added the widget to your blog.


Lets add the widget now. Follow the following steps.

Step 1 : Go to Blogger dashboard's layout and select "Add a Gadget"

Step 2 : Add a HTML/Javascript. Then copy and paste the below code.

<!--begin of Tricks Finder social widget-->
    <center>
    <div class="TF-Rotating-Bar" style="background: #111111;border: 1px solid #CCC;border-top: 1px solid #CCC;padding: 5px 8px 1px 3px;text-align: center;border-image: initial;font-size:10px;font-family: "arial","helvetica",sans-serif;"><div id="social">
    <!--Start Facebook Icon-->
    <a title="Like our Facebook Page" href="http://www.facebook.com/tricksfinder" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-_sySQs-bwnM/UCuTo4f6I1I/AAAAAAAAAi8/lNmwPiqZJHg/s1600/facebook-icon.png" style="margin-right:1px;" alt="Icon"/></a>
    <!--End Facebook Icon-->
    <!--Start Twitter Icon-->
    <a rel="nofollow" title="Follow Our Updates On Twitter" href="https://twitter.com/tricksfinder" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-uAYJSm-1-6c/UCuTquQDnMI/AAAAAAAAAjU/v6FYcf3GdT8/s1600/twitter-icon.png" style="margin-right:1px;" alt="Icon"/></a>
    <!--End Twitter Icon-->
    <!--Start Google+ Icon-->
    <a title="Follow Us On Google+" rel="nofollow" href="https://plus.google.com/114669905250225341128/" target="_blank"><img style="margin-right:1px;" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Uchsi6t_8qA/UCuTpYEI-nI/AAAAAAAAAjE/A2tHe-awAow/s1600/google-icon.png"/></a>
    <!--End Google+ Icon-->
    <!--Start RSS Icon-->
    <a rel="nofollow" title="Grab Our Rss Feed" href="http://www.tricksfinder.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-osDTY1Wsjis/UCuTqE-XXNI/AAAAAAAAAjM/7F4sA2CZpn8/s1600/rss-icon.png" style="margin-right:1px;" alt="Icon"/></a>
    <!--End RSS Icon-->
    </div></div>
    <!-- Email Subscribe -->
    <div id="email-news-subscribe" style="background: #EBEBEB;border: 1px solid #CCC;border-top: 1px solid white;padding: 1px 2px 1px 2px;font-size:10px;font-family: "arial","helvetica",sans-serif;">
    <div class="email-box">
    <form action="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify" method="post" target="popupwindow" onsubmit="window.open('http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=tricksfinder/vsuv', 'popupwindow', 'scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520');return true">  
            <input class="email" type="text" style="width: 110px; font-size: 12px;" id="email" name="email" value="Enter Your Email.." onfocus="if(this.value==this.defaultValue)this.value=&#39;&#39;;" onblur="if(this.value==&#39;&#39;)this.value=this.defaultValue;" />      
            <input type="hidden" value="tricksfinder/vsuv" name="uri" />
            <input type="hidden" name="loc" value="en_US" />
            <input class="subscribe" name="commit" type="submit" value="Subscribe" />  
        </form>
     </div></div>
     </center>
<div id="TricksFinder"><script src='http://rotate-bar.googlecode.com/files/rotatebuttons.js' type='text/javascript'/>
</script></div>
<!--end of Tricks Finder social widget-->

Step 3 : Replace the above Red urls of the social bookmarking sites with your links. Replace the above Purple text with your feedburner ID. It is usually the last part of the feedburner URL. For an example
http://feeds.feedburner.com/tricksfinder/VSuv

In order to make the widget fully visible, your widget section where you put the code needs to be have at least a size of 250px. Otherwise you will have to remove one of the bookmarking icon. That can be easily done by deleting the whole section between
<!--Start XXXXX Icon-->
<!--End XXXXX Icon-->

That's is. Now you will have a nice rotating subscription box.

Password Protected SMS (Text Encryptor & Decryptor)

Posted by Golden Dragon In | 0 comments»
In modern  telecommunication era, text message sending (SMS) is the the most popular method among teenagers. Low cost, ease of use and lack of complexity may be the reasons for that. Most of us have the ability to type a message within few seconds on phone without even looking the keypad.

It is true that SMS are so popular and widely used, but we cannot ensure security of the messages we receive and send. Anyone can read all your messages if they get your phone.

Have you ever thought that what if there's a method where you can secure your received messages to your mobile phone. For the first time in the world you will be able to secure your text messages in your mobile phone with a highest privacy and safety. This is still in experiment mode. This technology has been discovered by three youngster school boys who are from a South Asian country, Sri Lanka. The new technology is named as TED.

Text (SMS) Encryptor and Decryptor
TED, “Text Encryptor & Decryptor” mobile application will allow you to secure your text messages in your phone. You will experience the best privacy control for your messages from this application. Yet, this application, TED can be used only in java enabled (compatible) phones. But the drawback here is that to gain benefit from this, both sender and receiver should install TED to their mobile phones. You will receive a user account and password when TED is installed for the first time on your mobile. When you will receive a SMS then the same SMS will also receive to TED account. So owner should need to login to the Ted account to read & view the received messages.

The messages you received to your mobile phones are completely limited to you. Only you can read the messages. If unknown tries to read the messages, it is useless as he won’t be able to read it because the messages would display an encrypted form of text such as secret codes.

Those who use TED will receive this wonderful and amazing security and privacy for his mobile phone. The all compliments should go to the three students who created this valuable application named  Roshnal, Adeesha and Chamath.The below is the official website for this application.

The above application has been developed for the contest Think Quest 2012 organized by Oracle Education Foundation.

Gone PR3 with Yesterday's Google PageRank update

Posted by Golden Dragon In | 0 comments»
As bloggers, many of us target our blogs to compete with others and come up to the first place in Google. I'm not that much good on search engine optimization (SEO) for the tricky articles which I publish. On the other hand I don't have enough time to do bit of SEO for my articles and blog as I am busy with my office work.

Today I got to know that there a rumor saying Google has updated it's pagerank (PR) again. Few weeks ago, may be probably a month ago, I checked my Pagerank after I purchased the domain tricksfinder.com from GoDaddy. It was nothing significant other than a PR0. So I checked my PR just to see whether the rumor is true.

How I got Google PR3 within few months
Whoa...! I couldn't believe my eyes. What I saw was really astonishing. It was PR3 before my domain. I wonder how I achieved such a rank within few months. I just checked my rank with some of my friends those who are really working towards a better SEO rank. But what I observed was that most of their blogs has been demoted in terms of Google PR. According to my recent experience, what I feel is that Google seems to track intentional site promotions other than black hat methods.

So I thought of sharing my experiences on this PR update. I think it would be useful for those who have sites with decreased PR. The below are few tricks I use when I do blogging.

Method 1 : It is stated by many SEO specialists that after the Google Panda update, the PR algorithm has been changed and more weight has been allocated to social network shares. Normally bloggers share their content only to Facebook and Twitter. But I prefer other sharing networks than these primary sites. I used to submit my content especially to Digg and Stumbleupon. But once I got a huge traffic from Reddit as well. I'm not familiar enough with Reddit as it seems to bit complex to me. But may be that huge traffic from Reddit has come from a submission by loyal user at Reddit who visits my blog.

Method 2 : Do submit to other DoFollow social bookmarking sites like Tagza, Supfella, Fundolink. These sites allows you to submit your content and get votes for the submissions. So that you will get some additional traffic as well from those sites if they come up in the top stories of the day. Try to add social sharing buttons widget at the bottom of your blog posts. It will increase the social media impact of the readers of your blog.

Method 3 : Earlier when I put images onto blog posts, I used to do a relevant Google Image search and put an image from the search results. Now I do design a custom image and upload it into the blog post. Once you upload an image, make sure you place alt tags as well. The 'alt' tags will tell what your image is about.

Method 4 : It's better if you can always add a custom permalink to your blog posts. If you add keywords to the custom permalink, then it will increase your search engine visibility.

Method 5 : Add few subscription methods like Facebook fan pages, twitter and G+ follows, Email Subscriptions, RSS feeds etc. Once you post a new post, update those as well. So your subscribers will know that you have updated.

Those are the things I normally do when I post something. Try above few things and see whether it will work for you as well.
