Bidding Adieu

Thursday, May 10, 2007


Hi Friends,

As I have been migrated to Wordpress and will be concentrating full time on my Wordpress blog I have decided to call it a day here. I am not going to post any new topic here. I encourage you to visit my new blog Techie Zone.

In the mean time I also suggest those interested in making money online to have a visit HERE. It is not so hard to make money online and there are many tricks involved in making money which I will write in my new blog.

I just found this program called Text Link Ads where you can purchase advertising on other sites and promote your product to a large audience. It's pretty cool. I wish I'd used it earlier as it would have made my site more successful.

Anyway, I've decided not to update this blog anymore. See ya!"

Thanks a lot.

How to put Adsense in New Blogger

Tuesday, March 06, 2007


When Blogger transformed into the new XML based interface I was quite apprehensive of moving into the new blogger template. I found it damn dificult to customize the template according to my wishes but now I am gradually getting hold of the new template. And now onwards I will post some hacks I have made in new blogger. It is time for putting the adsense code in new blogger.

The easiest method to put adsense code in new blogger is by creating page elemet for adsense or html/java script at the top and bottom of blogpost element as shown in picture. But the main
problem in this technique is that the adsense ad will appear at the top and bottom of the page and not in each individual post.

Now we will do something so that adsense ad will appear at the beginning and end of each posts. And that can be done by adding the code by directly modifying the html (rather XML) code of the template. But when you will insert the adsense code directly inside XML code of the blogger you will receive an error that reads something like this:

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly. XML error message: The processing instruction target matching "[xX][mM][lL]" is not allowed.
The above error means that the adsense code is not a standardized XML format. So we need to modify the code (But google does not allow the modification of adsense code, do not worry..google only tells that minor edits on Google Adsense Code for Blogger Beta/XML are allowed as long as the resulting Adsense Code generated by Blogger is exactly the same as given from Google Adsense Code Generator. So as long as find the same adsense code as the adsense code generator generated by viewing the page source where the adsense code appears you are not violating the TOS.). In XML, <, >, " and " are not recognized. So we need to replace these character with their valid XML notation as shown in figure below:
Once you create the adsense code from the adsense code generator, you have to make the above changes, which can be done with the use of a notepad (by find and replaced command) or with a html parser.

Now in the following steps we will put the modified adsense code where we want it to appear:

1. Go to your blogger dashboard and click on Layout.2. Click on Edit HTML
3. Click on Expand Widget Templates4. Now put the modified adsense code at the place as shown the following figure:

The final result will be shown in your blog like this:
In order to make the ads appear below the post body you can add the code at the place as shown in the figure below:

Have you seen this????

How social bookmarking helps...

Thursday, February 22, 2007


In one of my blog I posted a post called Some Unforgettable Moments captured in frame. And the response I received from people is overwhelming. This post contains a set of 20 famous photographs taken by very famous photographers. They have been awarded best photos of the year in the respective year they have been taken. It generated more than 15000 page views in 15 hours of my posting and it put my blog as the second hottest topic in reddit. (A corresponding picture is presented below)

The above two pictures from Mybloglog stats page depicts the effect of the social book marking site on my blog views, I have taken reddit as a reference. The left side picture shows the stats after 10 housr of my psoting and the right side shows after 15 hours of my psoting and 2 hours after i discovered it in reddit. Even when I posted this and published it in Digg I never expected it to touch to 625 diggs in 5 hours.

This post has become a hot topic in web and all the credit goes to the social bookmarking sites. I hv received many comments from my reader some encouraging me for this post and many discouraging me about the copyrights. So looking into this I removed the zip file which contained the photographs in larger views and I also added a link to the original location of the photographs.

Update: The latest screen shot from the bloglog stats

Almost all who are familiar with Internet and e-mail wish to have a gmail account due to its simplicity faster opeartion and massive storage space. G-mail has become public after almost 3 years of its launch. When G-mail was launched it was in such a big demand that an invitation for gmail was being sold for as high as 10 dollars in e-bay. Now all this has ended and any body want to have a gmail account can get one. So enjoy with your new gmail account.

Make FREE calls anywhere to any phone......

Wednesday, February 07, 2007


Now a days with emerging voip technology many voip service based companies are offering free pc to pc call. But do you know or ever imagined that you can call from your computer to a landline or a mobile number in almost any part of the World fro free. Yes it is possible and Gizmo Call has made it possible. Now you can save quite a lot from calling your kith and kin through STD or ISD call.

Gizmo Call is a modernized way to make call directly from your web browser. It uses a flash plug-in to manage your calls. And it is compatible with Internet Explorer and Firefox (Both I have tyested) which are most widely used browser. In order to start making call you need the following:

- A Windows (2000/XP) or Mac (OS 10.3.9+) computer
- A headset, or speakers and a microphone
- A web browser with Adobe Flash Player 9 installed (If you are a regular web browser then your is equiped with that)
- The Gizmo Call Plugin. Once you visit the website and start to make call, it will prompt to download and install the plug-in.

When everything is done, you are ready to make call...simply dial the number in the following format irrespective of the country you are located:

+(Country code)(Area code)phone number.......or.....+(Country code)mobile number

For example if you want to make a call to India to a number 22467725 located in Mumbai then you have to dial +912222467725 and click on Call button or simple press Enter. You can notice that once you dial the country code the flag will show the national flag of the country you are dialing.

As an unregistered user, your first 5 minutes of calling (each day) are free! Once you register with Gizmo Call (which is free), you will get 10 minutes of free calling per day.
Please note that calls to US toll-free numbers, Gizmo Project users, Google Talk users, and any other purely VoIP phone calls are always free.

If you want to call for more than 10 minutes a day, then you will need to purchase some Call Out credit. Basically, you might purchase $10.00 of Call Out credit, and then after your 10 minutes of free calling per day runs out, you will be charged from the call out credit.

In this few days I noticed that there is lots of issue with Internet Edxplorer, so I recommend to use this site using Mozilla Firefox. I have been using it in Mozilla Firefox without any issue. Please downlaod Mozilla Firefox by clicking below:

Want to Earn Money Online????

Sunday, February 04, 2007


This is not the stereotypical earning money on the Internet post. This is totally different and uses the pay for posting methodology to give you money. Yes mylot pays you real dollar for your posts, opinion and comments and even for uploading photos.

The technique is simple, you have to just visit their web site and sign-up and start posting and make dollar, this is as simple as this.

As of now there are 65,950 registered user in mylot and it is still growing. Each response to an existing post gives you 1 point and each sommend to nay response alos gives you 1 point. And till you touch 100 points your earning from each point is equal to 2 cents and that also stands for each photo you posts in any discussion. Apart from that they have a nice referral program by which you will earn 25% commission from the earning of your referral, say an user whom you have referred earned 2 dollars in a day then your commission will be 50 cents whcih is not bad at all. Their payout is per month basis and it is around 15th of each month. Minimum payout value is 10 dollars. So if you have earned 10 dollar till 15th of a calendar month then you will be paid that amount if not it will be carried forwqard to next payout. And they pay through paypal
After that you can either spend it for your online payment through paypal or transfer it to your bank account.

In order to ban spamming they do not allow copy/pasting till a user reach 500 points. Another good feature is that once you reach 100 points you will get a star with a rating depending upon your performance (which takes into consideration various factors) and the rating constantly changes depending upon your activities. I got a 8 star rating but currently I am at 6 star. This star rating in turn decide your earning per posts or photos after you cross 100 points. There are instances where people have earned around 5 cents per post.

Some guidelines before you start:
1. Please try to provide valid opinion about any post. ANd avoid one liner like thank you, congrats just for the sake of increasing count. (It will severly affect ur earning)
2. Try to reply/put comments to responses for discussions started by you.
3. Always put tags to the responses and discussion.
4. Rate the discussion and opinion you come across.
5. Make as many friend as possible.
6. Reply to your friends discussion and rate them.
7. Try to put relevant images to your posts it will earn you more.
8. Be regular and active or you will loose your rating.
9. The earning is updated once in 24 hours, so try to analyse ur earning trend and act accordingly.

So if you are serious about earning money and want to utilize your time, dont think twice and sign-up now.

Want something better than Gmail...Walla Mail is for you

Wednesday, January 10, 2007


Gmail with its offering of more then 2 GB space has created quite a stir in the market. The simplest yet powerful interface of google made the people crazy. At some point of time the Gmail invitation was for sale in E-Bay. But dont you think this 2-3 GB space may fall sort for you if you have subscribed to many mailing list and you receive large attachments with pictures and many files.
Here is an alternative for you in the form of Walla mail. It offers you an unbelievable 5 GB space and that too without an invitation. It means you can just go to their website and fill up a simple form and sign-up. Now you have 5 GB of space at your possesion and you can store all the e-mails and any attachments you would like.
With popularity of g-mail, in many of the corporate houses it has been blocked but the walla mail is open to all users. So you can access it nay where any time.
It has a very simple Interface as evident from the screen shot below:

The compose screen is having a very Rich Text Editor:

It even offers a Rich text signature that means you can insert pictures and Animation in signature (which lacks in gmail).
You can create your own folder and sort incoming e-mail into respective folders (but you can not set rule, you have to do it manually)
One of the annoying feature they have what they call is for abuse protection is that each time you send an e-mail you have to go through a verification process.
So if you feel like having a 5 GB e-mail account without wwaiting for an invitation then click here.
