So what is Blockchain Technology?

Blockchain

To understand Cryptocurrency it is necessary to first understand Blockchain Technology.

Blockchain is a revolutionary technology built on cryptography which in essence is really hard math. This makes it possible for every single Bitcoin transaction to be permanently hardcoded into a universal ledger which is hosted on all computer supporting the block-chain around the world. Now don’t worry you don’t have to be a math genius to profit from Bitcoin and other cryptos. What this means though is that no one can hide what they’re doing with their money. And at the same time it provides a high degree of anonymity.

Today we have online exchanges and even smartphone apps that allow us to buy sell and trade dozens of crypto currencies. We also have devices called hardware wallets that allow us to move your cryptos. This way we can store them in perfect safety.

One can literally carry millions of dollars in pocket and use it anywhere in the world. Bitcoin and other crypto currencies have become accessible to pretty much anyone. Bitcoin is just a small part of the disruptive revolution to come.

Blockchain technology will have an impact far greater than the internet ever could.

Here is a standard size Reddit button for your website

If you have social media buttons on your website, and have ever tried adding a reddit button, you may have noticed that reddit doesn’t provide a standard sized button. Most other websites, such as Digg, Facebook, and Twitter, have 20px tall buttons as an option. Reddit didn’t have one 20px tall, so I made one by modifying an existing button, and here it is:

To use it, save this button to your own server and replace the image URL in the button code with your own URL (wherever you uploaded the button). Also, note that I say button, not widget. This won’t work with the interactive widgets because they are a javascript code. Use the “reddit this!” button under “commonly used buttons” to get the right code.

But not so long ago this problem was solved by different software developers which offer different solutions for their customers. Such tools make it possible to download such videos and afterwards convert the video files to different formats which are easy to use. This kind of software is extremely popular today because it makes it possible to watch youtube videos offline on your computer.

Ecomparison Shopping With Voucher Codes

Ecomparison Shopping for Men’s Clothing from places such as White Stuff and Moss Bros with Voucher Codes

Ecomparison shopping online is one of the most convenient ways to shop. Not only can you find everything you’re looking for, but all from the comfort of home. While, women outnumber men in online shopping, men are quickly catching up. While, men’s clothing tends to be a little easier to shop online for, there are some basic guidelines you should follow to avoid returns.

Sizing

It’s important to know your sizes before ordering online. If you’re between sizes, go for the next larger size. Men’s jackets, suits and other fitted items are sized based on measurements. Make sure your measurements are accurate. Your partner can do this for you or you can visit a tailor to be measured. Shoes are listed in both U.S. and European sizes, making it easier for you to order correctly.

Styles

You can find anything online that you would find offline. Often with more color and sizing options. Search by favorite designers, type of material or price on shopping sites to find all the styles of clothing you want.

Ecomparison shopping is easy, fun and affords you the opportunities to find what you want. Always take a look at the sites shipping, return, exchange and payment policies to ensure you feel comfortable using their online store. Shop, order and receive your favorite men’s clothing in just a few days (faster with upgraded shipping options) and slip into your new jeans or suit for a new look.

Pirate Bay Being Blocked by AVG, Might Be Infected

The Pirate Bay is currently being blocked by AVG Antivirus for “containing active threats.” While some say this is nothing to worry about and that AVG is blocking the website because of its torrents, maybe you shouldn’t unblock it just yet.

AVG has never blocked The Pirate Bay before, so why would they do it now all of a sudden? Because it is actually infected. Two days ago my computer was almost infected with a virus or trojan from the search results page of the site. A popup window opened, and redirected all of my open tabs in Firefox to a “CLICK HERE TO GET RID OF YOUR SPYWARE!!!!” website, at which point I immediately Ctrl-Shift-Escaped and terminated all instances of Firefox.

It has to be an infected advertisement that did this, because The Pirate Bay would never do such a thing intentionally. I suggest not using the website for at least a week, or until AVG unblocks it again.

Google Caffeine Update

Google is rolling out a new update that involves injecting some caffeine into its system. The “Caffeine Update” is rumored to contain a few interesting items.

Speed is now a factor in your rankings. Google will measure how long it takes for your website to load and compare it against the average loading time of other websites. If your site loads faster than the average, you get a tiny boost in your rankings, if it loads slower, then you get a tiny penalty. So this if course raises the immediate question – how do I know if my site is loading at the right speed?

Fortunately, Google Webmaster Tools can answer that question. If you login to Google Webmaster tools, under the “Labs” section they’ve added a new “Site Performance” tool that tells you how fast your website loads compared to everybody else:

Website Speed by Google

As you can see – the site in the above image loads faster than 83% of other websites. I think that’s safe to say this particular website will get a nice boost once Caffeine hits the live results pages. The other nice feature of this new tool is that it identifies ways to speed up your page, a really common suggestion it made to my own websites was to enable GZIP compression, which I am in the process of doing right now.

Another factor that is being speculated about is whether social bookmarking will be used in the ranking of your website. It’s possible that Google will rank your website higher for ranking on sites like Digg.com. Now this does raise the question of social bookmark spamming, and in fact there are services out there that will guarantee your story to appear on the front page of Digg.com for a price (expect these types of services to gain massive popularity when this update goes live).

While we are on the topic of ways to enhance your website, here’s a few optimization tips you can use to give you a small edge in organic rankings with Google:

  • Check for any crawl errors in Google Webmaster Tools. If Googlebot is having issues with your site, it will tell you so you can fix them and stop being penalized.
  • Check for any HTML suggestions from Google Webmaster tools. This is another great feature that gives you some basic tips for optimizing your website in various ways. It will alert you if there are any meta tag problems, duplicate content issues, and such. It can be a real life saver if checked frequently.
  • Another great tool is Web Page Analyzer (by WebsiteOptimization.com). It will crawl a single page on your website and run various tests to measure how fast it responds and how long it will take an average user on various connection speeds to load your page. It also identifies other great features such as really large images or external files that are slowing your site down, and makes recommendations on what to fix so you can enhance your site to it’s fullest.
