Releasing Blogger Notification Bar!

Blogger Notification BarLooks like the new year is near! Out of the premium sets of design resources in our repository, we often share one of them as a freebie when the occasion is precious. There are many creative premium widgets, tools and plugins that we managed to develop this month for our regular clients and out of these I will be sharing just two such resources as a new year gift. They are: (1) Blogger Notification bar widget that you can see live on our blog at the top and (2) a Blogger Template entitled "Salahuddin Ayubi" which is far better than any of the templates we designed so far and makes us really jealous when we compare it to our current design of MBT blog itself!

Animation using CSS3 KeyFrames and jQuery's scrollTop() function

css3 keyframesJquery is indeed the most compressed and efficient library of JavaScript introduced so far that has made a web developer's job more easy. Its built in functions of show(), hide(), AJAX() and my beloved scrollTop() are indeed the most used functions that gives a new life to user interface (UI). CSS3 animations using @Keyframes rule is one of the most innovative things I came across so far. Pseudo elements such as :before and :after are increasingly being used now because they eliminated the use of unnecessary div tags.

Tips To Create a Successful Google+ Community

google plus communitiesUnlike Facebook, Google plus has still a long way to go in terms of popularity and user profiles. Although Google has had been trying really hard to promote Google plus by affiliating it with all the other products that comes under the same brand, people often find this social network a dry one indeed. An interesting point here is the fact that Google plus offers more or less, a similar flavor to the users that they enjoy using Facebook, there is still something lacking when it comes to moderate the communities effectively. While the moderators seem confused about how to give a boost to their Google+ communities, Google seems to notice it and has now come up with some worth following solutions.

Wordpress 3.5 Upgrade Errors: Forgot to Backup?

wordpress upgrade errorsWordpress version 3.5 recently got released and just like always, many webmasters are striking their heads against the wall due to newly introduced database errors. Wordpress emphasize greatly to backup your database before making any change but most often we forget to backup and click the Upgrade button in hurry- what follows next is a horrible nightmare for those who are not well versed with MySQL database management and error recognition. I recently got into the same trouble while updating our sister blog i.e. Smart Earning Methods.  I forgot to backup the database! Fortunately we receive schedule backups on our Email daily and this was no less than a blessing. The site I updated to WP 3.5, got messed up with plenty of Query errors all pointing to the plugin directory.

The Biggest Surprise For Google Web Spam Team in 2012

online spammingThe thought of starting an E-business and making money online seems to be a fantasy to those newbies who are not aware of the uncertainties and frauds that are unavoidable reality in the online world. Although there are plenty of opportunities to be picked as an online business, the results totally depend on the choice you have opted for.

Google Explains How to Write a Proper Reconsideration Request?

Your blog can really make your life a complicated one if it gets into the bad lists of Google. Throughout my career as a blogger, I have come across many newbies who are often way too worried for their blog ratings. It has also been seen that sometimes a blog with a considerable rankings and readership goes under a sudden change, bringing disaster that keeps on increasing. It is important to understand the significance of a consistent good progress when it comes to an online earning business because, that is where you have no boss to appeal and no actual help to get the things fixed up for you. However, Google seems merciful enough to let the suffering bloggers a chance to help their blogs and offers a reconsideration request form that the bloggers have to fill and submit to the Google Team.

A good news is, Google has lately announced that it has some solutions for those webmasters who are the victim of website hacking.

As I have been saying in my previous posts, Google is smart enough to keep a track of everything, all the time and hence according to the new policies, the site that would be detected as a “hacked website” would be displayed with a warning message “This Site may be compromised”. This has been done to ensure safety of the users who might find the affected site in the search results and find themselves been overloaded with the malicious content.

Met a Strange Guy Today with Only tears in His Eyes

mental disorderI had to share a new tutorial today but my entire mood turned upside down when I met a young guy in a Mental Hospital. I thought I better share this experience with you all. Since I am on vocations, I try to give more time to friends and family and stay away from work the maximum I can afford. Every evening I go for fitness in a nearby Gym with a home friend (named Ahsan) in order to release stress and recharge myself mentally. Today Ahsan requested that we better meet his close relative whose young son just got admitted in Psychiatric hospital.

Thumbnail Image Fix For Pinterest Buttons in Blogger

thumbnail issues in pinterestPinterest as you all know is the new social media network introduced just this year that has slowly attracted fair amount of traffic and is grooming daily thanks to publishers and community members. We introduced various codes on how to add a Pinterest pin it button to your webpages but due to server side errors the JavaScript code introduced by pinterest for Firefox and Chrome is not functioning for the past one month. So We fetched a new code using AddThis servers and designed a custom Pinterest counter that works just like the original pinterest button. I also managed to write a simple XHTML code for the original pinterest button which will fetch the correct thumbnail image out of your BlogSpot blog and will work just fine without a description or blank thumbnail image problem. Lets check these fresh codes which works just fine. I will also update the old tutorials today.

The Terrible Exams are Finally Over!

Exams are over!It feels like someone has dragged me out of a big mountain. I feel like I am literally breathing again! I called it terrible because they really were terrible! :p I am pursuing B.E in Computer and Information System Engineering and just attended exams of 6th semester, 2 more semesters to go after which (Graduation) I would have enough time to groom STC Network. As a student its tough to look after an online business which demands both time and care. Working online today with an increasing competition and rapidly changing moods of online traffic, you can not let your blogs run on auto-pilot mode even if it is managed by your employees. Exams for me mean a complete 40 days ban on all online activities. No clients, no engagement with readers (through blog, fan pages, phone calls or email), no product promotion, no posting, no technical learning, no innovation and no implementation of developed skills. It does not only effect the revenue but also skill productivity.
