Internet is a world of knowledge and it is the knowledge which helps us to be practical. If you are familiar with the terms of the Internet, you must be pretty aware of the fact that there are different domains and each of them are separate from the other. In addition of this, most of the domains use different sites for building a webpage. When it comes to the point of establishing online or while opening a website, domains are the prior thing of concern as it can be the key to influence success. There are several domains available which are internationally accepted but only a few of them acquire the position for being top.

Top Level Domain Advantages

Specialised Endings for Top Level Domains

Apart from the default domain extensions, there are also customisable domains found. These specific set of domains acquire specific endings just to signify the purpose. A clear set of example is definitely with the Government websites which generally uses .gov extensions which specify their purpose. Other preferred domain extensions which can be easily acquired are .info, .biz as well as .web. Domain extensions such as these can also be considered as top level. They definitely do not have any such keyboard shortcuts but they can always be quite preferable indeed.

Other Top Level Domains

Specifically, there are other top level domains which may help you up in building your website. These set of domains are however, more suitable for your website than any other default names. The benefit of this is that even you put up a general name for your domain, the extension will be enough for you to make it clear what you are providing.

An example of the Local Top Level Domains would certainly be .edu which defines that the website is providing educational services. Services may be of anything, but it is helpful when the extension is reserved.

Thus, being a top level domain does not mean that it will help you in all. But the best part is that you can choose domain according to your choice of service.

Backlinks – A Way to Increase Web Traffic

Do you want to get your blog being the Top Rated? Well, to make an impact of the blog in a good Search Engine Optimization, the importance of Backlinks is huge. Backlinks are excellent to use when building a website. Backlinking from other websites, not only improves the importance of a blog in Search Engine, but it also influences in helping the blog grow better. Still if you aren’t familiar with the knowledge of these, here is a short guide for you:

Backlinks

What are Backlinks?

Backlinks are actually the key to get your blog on the top of a Search Engine. Backlinks are nothing but hyperlinks of some other website which are posted in your blog. Such hyperlinks from other websites are known as Backlinks which inturn are very important for a website to have. This is because more the number of backlinks there are in a website, more is the popularity of it. Google is definitely the most popular Search Engine today and it gives a higher ranking to the website with the largest backlinks adding more credibility to it. It is really important to build backlinks with the help of credible sources as it really helps to prove one point that the website carries quality content. However, it is not just enough to have a bunch of backlinks which are actually accumulated from different sources but it is of a real worth when the sources are accumulated from the similar content sources. However, there are a few restrictions to be taken care of. Having a limited backlink is okay but extending it to more than what you can think of can actually place the website to be banned.

 

What is Link Juice?

It is a colloquial term which is used in SEO world which actually gives the power to a site with the help of links from external as well as internal links. This is actually interpreted as a vote of recommendation to your site which helps in improving the search rankings of the website. There are actually many ways to earn links with the help of direct as well as indirect efforts. Direct effort refers to link a building strategy which is much similar to link building in the social networking as well as blog posting and commenting. However, for indirect efforts, it is just with presenting excellent contents in a blog. This is actually very helpful from a website and thus Link Juice is always essential for a website to have. The link equity which is passed out from these websites or blogs is actually considered as a link juice.

 

What Are NoFollow and DoFollow Links?

 

DoFollow: DoFollow are a special format of tagging the hyperlinks of a blog. When a backlink is tagged as a DoFollow link, it helps the website readers to get redirected to the site. This also initiates a good verdict for the website.

NoFollow: The websites do not recommend a NoFollow link to be used as a backlink. The major reason is that it initiates a negative impact on the website. These backlinks are dead and thus the user can verdict the website to not follow or track. In such cases, the website may get chances for getting banned if too many NoFollow backlinks are activated.

 

What are Spam Links?

Spam Links are a type of backlinks which initiates in building a dead to a website. Spam links can be created by anyone who does not want a website to get enough reputation. However, placing a spam link is creating the misuse of the website and this is the reason why most of the people do not prefer to put spam links on a blog. Much similar to a backlink, the spam link also initiates to a website page with the verdict of a spam note. Thus, with too many click on the link, the search rank of a site may decrease.

 

What are Internal Links?

Internal Links

Internal links are also a typical format of backlinks which redirects users. The only difference is that the redirection is done with the internal page of the same website. Internal links are hyperlinked on the blogs and articles of a website with the help of a specific keyword. Firstly, when a user clicks on this specific hyperlink, he is easily redirected to the extension of the link. The link redirects to somewhere else in the same page or in the same website leading to any product or any information. The help of internal links actually helps the websites to recycle traffic to their own domain and with the help of this, a huge traffic is generated. Thus, having internal Backlinks is also necessary for your website if you need to put an eye on the monthly traffic.

The clickable link which is used in a hyperlink is termed as an Anchor Text. There are many ways by which a website tricks to gain traffics. With the help of Anchor Text, a website can easily redirect users to their selected destination with the help of just one click. Usually, the blue underlined text is actually the Anchor Text in the article and it is most common as a web standard. These are specifically the keywords which are used as an Anchor text and it develops in such a way that the website gins the traffic as required.  Anchor text can also be caused as a backlink and it helps to improve the site ranking. Anchor texts can be of two types both natural as well as unnatural.

Natural Anchor Text: This is the anchor text which is used by the blogger to create external links to different blogs in the website. These links may be internal as well as external as well. The help of using Natural Anchor text will increase the ranking of the site.

Installing WordPress on your computer using wamp

Installing WordPress on your computer using wamp

This is the second part of installing WordPress on your computer using wamp. Earlier I wrote a blog post about how to setup wamp server where you can install WordPress. Now, after you have installed your wamp server, you can install WordPress in that wamp server, so that you can have your WordPress in your localhost. People use WordPress in their localhost for testing purposes to test their new plugin or new theme. If you are newbie and wanted to start blogging, then this is the heads up for you to start your blog. Start your WordPress blog by installing it locally and once you think you have learned how to setup everything, you can get a domain name and hosting to go live and start your blogging career.

Follow this guide to install WordPress locally in your computer using wamp.

Since, I have already explained how to setup wamp, I am assuming you have installed the wamp and all the services are running in it.

Step 1:

Go to http://localhost to access your default page.

Step 2:

As shown in the earlier article, I am assuming you have already extracted your WordPress folder to www directory present in your wamp’s installation folder.

So, to start the installation of your WordPress, access the WordPress folder through your web browser. Since, I have extracted my WordPress folder at www folder, I am access it through the following url

http://localhost/wordpress

or

http://127.0.0.1:801/wordpress

Step 3:

You will then be redirected to the first step of WordPress installation where you will be asked to choose your desired language.

Step 4:

After selecting your desired language, click on Continue to proceed with installation.

Step 5:

Now, in the next step it will ask you to create configuration file which is needed for the installation. To create a configuration file, you need to have a database, database username & password.

Step 6:

In order to go further with your WordPress installation, you need to create a database, database username and password which needs to be provided during the installation.

Since, wamp comes with mysql & phpmyadmin, you can easily create your database credentials.

Open your http://localhost in another browser window.

At the bottom, you can see phpmyadmin which will help you to create a database and database user. Click on phpmyadmin to create a database.

You will be shown in the above screen.

Step 7:

Click on Users to create your database and database user.

Step 8:

If scroll down a bit, you can see Add User link which will help you to create a database user. Click on it to create the database user.

Step 9:

Now, it will ask you to enter your database user details. Enter your desired database name, database user name, database password and for Host, use localhost.

You can also use the Generate button to generate strong password for you.

As shown in the above, I have entered some dummy values to help you understand. And when you have filled all the fields, click on Go to create your database and its user name and password.

Before clicking on Go, make sure you have saved all the details like your database name, password, username for the use in your WordPress installation.

Step 10:

Once you have clicked on Go, you will see a confirmation message.

And under Users overview, you can see the new database created.

Step 11:

Now, coming back to the WordPress installation, which is in other window.

Click on Let’s Go to proceed creating your configuration file.

Then, you will be asked you to enter database details.

Step 12:

Enter your saved database details in the above fields and remove the default data in that. Below you can see the details entered.

You can leave Table Prefix as it is or you can use your own text as table prefix.

Step 13:

Once you have entered all your database details. Click on Submit. If you have entered the details correctly, you will see a Run Install confirmation message.

Like as shown below

If you have entered wrong database details, you will get an error message saying

“Error in Database Connection”

In that case, you need to check your database details and make sure you have entered correct details.

Step 14:

Once you see the Run the Install page, click on Run the install button to start the installation.

Step 15:

Now, you will be asked to enter your WordPress Blog details. Enter your blog name, your administrator user name & password and email address.

Check the Privacy field if you want your blog to be indexed in Google or else uncheck it.

Step 16:

Once you have entered all the details, click on Install WordPress

It will install the WordPress blog in your localhost and after it got installed you can see a success page.

Step 17:

Now, your WordPress blog was installed successfully, you can log into your WordPress blog using your administrator details which you have entered earlier while installing wordpress.

In my case,

My admin login is: yourname
Password: [email protected]^7DO21E)BOVD5

And I can access my blog’s admin panel at

http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/index.php

Once, you have logged into your admin panel, you can manage everything in your admin dashboard, like adding posts, installing themes, plugins and many more.

And your regular blog address is

http://localhost/wordpress

If you have a static ip means, you can set your localhost WordPress blog to live which can be accessed worldwide or you can get a domain name and hosting to go worldwide.

How to install Wamp Server for WordPress

Today, I am going to show you how to install wamp server for WordPress where you can run your WordPress locally.

You can install WordPress even though if you don’t have a domain name and hosting. This can be done by installing a local webserver in your pc or laptop and can install WordPress in it. A local webserver is also called as localhost and can be accessed in your browser as http://localhost/ or http://127.0.0.1

Many WordPress theme and plugin developers use local webserver for their testing purposes. If you want to try WordPress or its features then localhost is the best bet for you.

But with localhost, other people cannot access your wordpress site installed in localhost. The only people who can see your site is you. Since, it is a localhost, it only resides in your computer and can be accessed by you. To set up a localost, you need to install webserver softwares like wamp, xampp and many more.

Wamp and xampp applications comes with the following installations

  • Apache
  • Php
  • Mysql
  • And some other applications like phpmyadmin, ftp, perl etc.

For WordPress to run, it requires Apache, Php and mysql which the above xampp and wamp applications have.

Normally, you can install all these above mentioned applications separately to launch your localhost. You can directly download apache server, php and mysql and install separately in your computer and integrate them together to work properly.

Apache is a web server which serves webpages only html pages, and in order for apache to serve php pages, it needs to be integrated with php library.

And a mysql server is a database server which enables you to create databases.

All these can be installed separately, but wamp makes it easy by combining all these in a single application. For newbies, a wamp server is recommended as it is easy to install and use it.

Follow the below guide to install wamp server for installing your wordpress

Step 1:

Type wamp in Google search as shown in the below

And you can see the search results with wampserver.com

Step 2: Click on the Google result with wampserver.com and you will be taken to their wamp’s official site.

Step 3: Click on Download link at the top of the webpage.

Step 4: Now, you will be taken to the download page where you will be asked to choose which type of processer is yours.

Follow the steps:

Click on Start
Right Click
on My Computer and Click on Properties

If you can see x64 under system, your computer can run 64Bit applications and you can download 64 Bit WampServer. If you see x86, then your computer is capable of running 32 Bit only, in that case, you need to download Wampserver 32Bit.

Since, the computer I am showing you this demo is 64 Bit I am downloading 64 Bit version.

Step 5: Download your suitable version of wamp

Step 6: Now click on download directly link as shown in the above screenshot.

Step 7:

You will be taken to an external trusted site sourceforge.net when you clicked on download directly link. It will automatically downloads the wamp software to your computer, if not , click on the direct link as shown in the above.

Step 8: After you have downloaded, you can see the downloaded file with the following name, though the version numbers might change as they keep on releasing new updates frequently.


Step 9:

Now open the downloaded file and install it. Follow the below steps to install it.

Click on Next to continue the installation

Accept the License agreement for WampServer

Choose the path where you want to install your wamp server.

If you want to have Quick Launch icon and Desktop icon, check them and click on Next.

Now Click on Install to install it.

Step 10:

After it has installed, it will ask you for the path of web browser. You need to show the path for your internet explorer or Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

In this demo, I am showing the path for Google Chrome

Normally, Google Chrome is located in the following location:
Local Disk (C) > Program Files > Google > Chome > Application

Step 11:

If you have a Windows Firewall, it will ask you to grant access to newly installed Wamp Server.

Step 12:

In the next step, it will ask you to setup mail parameters, which you don’t need right now, so use the default values to keep going.

Step 13:

Now, click on Finish as you are you about to finish the installation of wamp server.

Step 14:

Now, you can see a new icon appearing under your tray icons in your desktop.

Step 15:

Click on the icon which is wamp server’s icon to access its menu.

Step 16:

Click on Localhost to access your localhost site.

You should be able to see the above screen if everything is installed properly.

Troubleshooting:

But, sometimes, if you are running Skype , you will get problems installing a wamp server. Even though if you think you have installed everything properly, you will still see a blank page like the below.

That means your wamp’s default port which is 80 is being used by another application. You either disable that application from being running or change your port.

For me, my skype is using the port 80, so, I am changing the default port for webserver which is 80 to 801.

Follow the guide below to change your port if you are experiencing the same problem.

Go to your wamp’s installation directory. In my case, it is

Local Disk (C) > Wamp

Now, you need to go to apache’s conf director in order to change the port.

So, this is the directory which I need to go

Local Disk (C) > Wamp > bin > apache > apache2.4.9 > conf

Edit the file httpd.conf file as shown in the above with wordpad .

Now, you can see the httpd.conf file.

Search for the string “listen” using Ctrl+F in your keyboard.

And you can see the above line of code.

Now change the above lines to the following one

Listen 0.0.0.80

To

Listen 0.0.0.801

And click on Save to save the configuration file.

Now, Restart your web server as shown in the below.

After, you clicked on Restart All Services, your web server will restarts its services.

Now finally, if you refresh the same old localhost webpage. You can able to see its default page.

You can also access your localhost at the following address

http://127.0.0.1:801

Replace 801 with your post which was set in your configuration file.

You can set any port number in your configuration file, since I set, 801 as my port address, I am using it now.

Step 17:

Now, you have successfully installed your webserver. Now, I am going to show you how to install wordpress in it.

Go to http://wordpress.org to download a copy of wordpress files.

Step 18:

Click on Download WordPress to download your wordpress files.

Step 19:

Now, you will be taken to its download page where you will be again asked to click on Download WordPress

Click on it to download the files.

Step 20:


You can see a zip folder being downloaded which contains WordPress installation files.

Step 21:

Now, after you have downloaded the file, open it with winrar or winzip. You will be able to see a folder with name wordpress in that zip file.

Step 22:

Now extract the folder wordpress to wamp directory to install it.

Step 23:

Extract the folder to the following path

C:/wamp/www

If you have installed wamp in some other directory it should be extracted to the following path

Your wamp directory/www

Click ok to extract to the desired location.

Step 23:

After you have extracted the folder to www directory, click refresh on your localhost default page.

You can able to see the new folder wordpress will be appearing in that page.

In the next blog post, I will be writing a detailed guide on how to finish installing wordpress in your localhost.

What is a Suppression List?

If you are into affiliate marketing, you might have heard about Suppression List already. But many newbies still wonder about what a suppression List is?  For those people, i am going to give a short brief on it.

Suppression List : 
A Suppression file is a file containing list of email address who do not want to receive your broadcasts. Often many affiliate networks provide suppression file for each offer. Usually, this list was created when people unsubscribed for the promotional emails of that offer sent to people, the list of email addresses who were unsubscribed will be added to to a file . For people who want to promote that offer through email marketing, then need to use this suppression file when sending their broadcast. So that, people who already opted out for this offer’s promotional emails will not receive anymore emails for that offer.

You can see an example of an affiliate network offering suppression list

Here in the above, i am showing the suppression list for Alibaba’s Affiliate offer.

How to use Suppression List?

For example:

If are building your list and have a decent amount of subscribers in your list. And if you want to promote Alibaba’s offer to that list of yours. Then you need to use this suppression list provided by the affiliate network when sending your email broadcast. Because, there might be some people in your list who already unsubscribed for the offer your are going to promote to your list. So in order to comply with CAN-SPAM Act 2003 of (United States of America) you should use a suppression list when promoting using email marketing.

Many email marketing companies like Aweber, Getresponse offers the use suppression list when you create an email marketing campaign .

Here i am going to show you how to upload a suppression file in your Aweber.

What Makes a Backlink A High Quality Backlink?

backlinks

Ever thought of why a backlink can be important for your content? Yes, there can be many reasons of why there is a backlink in your content and what value will it add to your content. But, before you add a backlink randomly, you should understand why a backlink is important. A backlink is actually important as it links from the business websites to the contents of the personal blogs. Apart from this, it targets on specific keywords, which are brought up on the blogs. Backlinks are mostly embedded in the contents to increase the traffic to the commercial websites. This helps in many ways as the backlinks are developed in such a way that it helps in every ways. But, before you acquire a backlink to your personal blog, you should know how to make your selected backlink to be a high quality one. To make a backlink successful and highly qualified, you must be doing one thing perfectly and it is to follow this important fact.

From a relevant source

The main trick applied by search engines is that they are desired to provide relevant search to the sources. Thus, when backlinks are evaluated by the search engines, it is first considered that there should be a perfect link to the relevant source. The more appropriate you can make it up for the content, the more it can be familiar for getting the backlink to be highly qualified. The Search Engines mainly count on the relevance of the linking site.

From a trusted source

This is quite logical indeed that a high quality backlink would definitely come from a trusted source. If the source is trusted enough, it gets a green signal from the Search Engines. First of all, to measure if a website is trustworthy; you need to check for spam issues in the website. However, in most of the cases it is not. However, it is to be always kept in mind that the higher the quality of trust for a website is, the higher would be the quality of the backlink. This will give a fair chance for your content to be encoded with a high quality backlink as the source will outcome as a good result for the backlink.

Sends traffic

One of the most important finds for every website is traffic, so if the traffic is redirected to the commercial website from your blog, then it must be considered as high quality content. Thus, to make the backlink to be high quality some facts may always be considered. The more you can generate traffic to the commercial website, the more you can actually turn increasing the quality of the backlink. This is quite a straightforward quotient, which interrelates with the level of traffic to the website.

Exact/phrase/synonym match anchor link text used

The first thing that you can take up in your mind is that whenever any keyword is searched on the internet, search engine redirects to the blogs. The one thing that you need to take control of is the exact keyword and the phrase. If the backlink is targeted on such a keyword, which is most, searched, the backlink would be automatically considered to be highly qualified. Exact phrases of the backlinks when searched by the people, automatically generates to these backlinks and then to the commercial websites.

In-content

The next important thing would certainly be the context of your content. The more your content is viewed, the more your backlinks are. Thus, there is a specific reason why content is quite beneficial as well. What you need to do is quite simple indeed. You have to make your content the best or in other words, you need to make it viewed many times as well. The more views you can bring up for your content, the more are automatic views for the backlinks as well.

On a page with Page Rank

Page Rank is also a very important aspect to look out for. Similar to the Trust Issue of websites, the preference goes to the websites who are ranked with a better Page Rank. Thus, before you start with the backlink, you are about to develop, you must consider the web page to be ranked a little higher. Still, it is not the only fact to look out for; you must place exact backlinks in your content to increase the quality of it. This will help in other terms to make your content to be higher quality indexed as well.

Next to backlinks to authority websites

The best part is when you get a commercial website on your backlink; you need to keep it up to the authority of the website. The backlinks should be developed in such a way that it redirects to the website only without any other route to a third party website. The more this is maintained accurately, the more it is beneficial for the backlink as well.

Not reciprocal

Fix Missing Buttons in WordPress Visual editor & White Text

Recently, I have observed that, many people were facing the problem of missing buttons in their WordPress visual editors and also, when they were writing a blog post in their editor, they can’t see what they were writing in it. They were not even able to switch from visual editor to their html editor. It becomes frustrating when those buttons don’t show up and won’t let you write your blog post peacefully. A blog post will look nice and will attract visitors only if it was richly formatted and has good alignment with pictures. When you don’t have the buttons in your visual editor, you may face difficulty formatting your blog post without buttons in your visual editors. And when you were writing your blog posts, if your text appears white, there is no point in writing because you can’t see what you were writing. People also have reported that, they can’t even switch from their visual editor to html editor. With all these errors in your blog, you will lose interest in writing a blog post.

Here I am going to show you how to fix all these errors.

Method 1:

Try clearing your browser’s cache, sometimes your buttons in visual editor won’t show if there is some caching problem with your browser. So, try clearing your cache of your browser or use a different browser. The buttons should show up, if the problem occurred due to caching issue. If not, go for Method 2.

Method 2:

Is this problem arising after you have updated your WordPress?
Maybe during your update process, something may went wrong and it resulted in missing your buttons in visual editor. WordPress will have TinyMCE scripts by default in the folder wp-includes/js/tinymce

Try replacing this entire folder which is responsible for showing buttons in your visual editor. If something wrong with this folder means, after you have replaced your tinymce your buttons should show up.

As some users of WordPress have reported that, after updating their WordPress, they were missing wp-inclides/js/tinymce/wp-tinymce.js.gz in their WordPress installation directory. Try copying the file from your WordPress installation directory to your website directory which should fix the problem.

Method 3:

If the above two methods are not working means, then there might be some issue with your JavaScript when trying to load your visual editor. To resolve this, you can simply disable this by adding some code to your wp-config file. Normally for loading faster, all JavaScript files were loaded in a single url, but since you were getting problem with it. You can disable this feature by adding the following line to your wp-config.php file.

define( ‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false );

Sometimes, plugins like simple Ad Manager and other plugins, may not integrate well with your themes, so they may lead to missing icons in your visual editor. If you have installed new plugin and lost icons in your WordPress editor, then try to disable them and see if you can see the buttons again.
