PACMAN Anniversary! PACMAN on GOOGLE

Hi, you must have noticed the Pacman game that Google pleaced in the logo area on Google.com

In case you are wondering, this is not a flash game, as a matter of fact this is simply a PNG picture that is being maniplated by a java script

The Java script that is running the games is located here http://www.google.com/logos/js/pacman10-hp.3.js

Now, let’s pull some strings and try to link the game to this page…

FAILED, I’m not yet able to port the game here without copying it ūüôĀ any Ideas?

No more Clicksor!

Hi

You may have noticed that during the last month I was trying to include some Clicksor in this blog, I got the idea to try them when I found out at the Google Adsense webinar that it is ok to include some ads from other providers as long as they do not confuse the user to be Google ads.

Anyway, Today I’m removing all clicksor ads from this website for the following reasons.

1. Very low income. I tried some of the most successful clicksor ad forms, Interstitial Ads ads, in-text ads, and pop-under ads. For every dollar I made on ad sense, I made around 5-10 cents in clicksor.

2. contextual ads are too stupid, I have never seen it coming up with something smart, OK it will highlight the word “Play Game”, but when you “mouseover” it a small pop up will come with the dumb suggestion “Learn all about Play Game!!”

3.Interstitial Ads do not work most of the time, I use opera, and I often browse my own blog, but only once I have seen the Interstitial Ad in action, it took over the entire screen, and ,,, and,, and thats it, the screen remained white until i clicked a small button on top of the page to close it.

4.Floating ads suck, they do! , first, only 2 ads seemed to appear to me, one about Ad Onion, an ad service, and the other about some stupid mail filter, don’t expect much change in the ad, according to the page contents.

So for now, I’ll stick with Ad sense from Google until further notice.

Have you tried Clicksor? did you like it?

Use Opera unite to access thousands of shared music and video files

If you don’t know what is Opera Unite, then you can read some more about it here or visit the official website here

Today we will discuss how to use Google to access the media and data files that other Opera unite users are sharing after their permission to have their shared files indexable by Google.

To keep things simple I will set a few links that will give you direct access to Google search results.

1. Streaming music files
2.Streaming Video, Audio, and downloadable PDFs
3. Any shared files.
[ad#link5box]
4. Shared Pictures

5.  Acess to self hosted websites click repeat the search with the omitted results included. to show all results.

Clicking  repeat the search with the omitted results included. will increase the number of results because Google tends to assume that multiple results are repeated.

Some of the results you will try to access will be offline, this means that the computer hosting the application is currently off, or Opera is not running.

Please carful while accessing self hosted website, there is no way to know the kind of material that can be hosted there. Also do not download suspesious or pirated apps from other’s computers, this can be very dangerous.

To have your opera services indexed by Google and publicly accessible, do the following.
1. register with opera unite and prepare all the application you want to share.
2. Right click each of the applications that you will be sharing and select properties.

sharing is caring3. click on the advanced settings arrow, then check “make application visible to search engines”.

4. If you wish for your files to be publicly viewable, please remove the password protection. to do so open the admin tab of the application that you sharing and click “Public” then save your settings.

sharing is caring 2 that’s it!

It’s of course obvious that your internet bandwidth will be affected if you are sharing huge files that are publicly accessible, and let’s not neglect the risk of virus infection if you were smart enough to open a publicly accessible “File Inbox”

Please do not do illegal stuff with the info provided here. Opera gave us a good thing, let’s not ruin it!

Feel free to post your Opera unite applications links (and passes if any) here.

Opera Unite

Opera unite is a new service provided with the latest Opera browser 10.10. The idea is simple, you create an Opera account, and to that account, you can connect multiple computers (say: Home , Work, Notebook etc) and on each of these computers, you can install applications to do various things, like file sharing, or music streaming!

unite

Other than that, you can connect to your friends computers, check the pictures they are sharing, leave them notes on the fridge (a note sending service is literally called fridge) , or listen to their music.

You can password protect your shared services to increase your security, but on the other hand you can go public and make the files you are sharing appear on search engines!

Another great feature of Opera Unite is the ability to provide a web server. You can host your own website on your computer without stressing over network related issues (static or dynamic IP, port forwarding etc). Opera will provide you with a URL that will give you direct access to your website from anywhere. I think I will write more on some applications of this very soon.

Many more applications are also available, like video streaming, group spreadsheet editor, file inbox and I expect much more to be available soon.

If anyone cares about testing the new Opera Unite as a group, please write your request here.

Attend an AdSense webinar and learn how to improve your AdSense performance

logo

I got an Email from google concerning a series of webinars (web seminars) over the coming months.
these webinars will discuss google adsense uses and optimization. here is a copy ofthe invitation letter I got:

Hello publisher,

The AdSense Team will host a series of webinars over the coming
months. At our webinars we’ll show you how you can grow your
AdSense revenue in a range of ways, for example by:

– using Google Analytics to identify which pages require
optimisation
– making simple changes to your ad implementation
– using Google Ad Manager to backfill your unsold directly-sold ad
inventory with AdSense, and having AdSense compete with your other
ad networks

At each webinar you will also have the opportunity to consult an
AdSense specialist.

For more information or to register for a webinar, see
https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=22045&sct=20091014-411.

Sincerely,
Siobhan
The Google AdSense Team

I registered for” AdSense Optimisation – Everything you need to know “.

To attend the webinar you will need  WMP, Quick time, or just the Flash player 6. and you need to be a Google publisher I think.

Will you be attending a webinar?  which one? what are you expecting?
