7 Reasons Why Your Website Is Too Slow: You are probably using shared hosting and that’s fine. If your hosting company isn’t BlueHost or something similar, your website shouldn’t have any problem with speed. I don’t want to promote any of those companies but there are websites that detect the hosting service a website use. Use these websites to learn which hosting service larger websites use. If you check a couple of large websites, you can easily find a good hosting company to solve your problems. DO NOT READ other blogs and their reviews on hosting services because they might have different reasons (e.g. affiliate, partnership…) for promoting them.

7 Creative Ways To Collaborate With Other Bloggers: Collaboration is one of the most effective methods that helps both sides. Most website owners disregard the importance of partnering with other website owners while even the biggest YouTube channels are collaborating to grow together with other channels. If you can’t see the fact that Fine Bros is featuring other YouTube channels, let me give you a more obvious example. Wisecrack YouTube channel has currently 1.5 million subscribers while Film Theorist YouTube channel has currently 3.7 million subscribers but that doesn’t stop them from collaborating.

How To Add Favicon To Your Blog The Right Way: Having a favicon is a part of branding and people see it every time they visit your website. Probably, the only place you see the favicon of your blog is your browser’s tab but there are other services like RSS readers, social media managers, email services etc. grab the favicon from the website. If they can’t grab the favicon from the specific link of your website, which is “yoursite.com/favicon.ico”, they simply show nothing and it looks very unprofessional. Before we start, remove favicon from your WordPress site. I can’t give the details on how you remove it because every theme has a different interface and you can remove it from the place you added it in the first place.

The Onion Router Browse The Internet Completely Anonymously: Tor, or the Onion Router, is a browsing tool used to surf the web anonymously. You may not know or care but there are many ways the Internet can track us.

So, it’s no surprise that journalists, activists, privacy advocates and even ordinary people have turned to Tor for a more anonymous browsing experience.

How We Claimed A Pinterest Username That's Already Been Taken: Last year, Pinterest had 100 million monthly active users and now it is 150 million. It might be still behind the Facebook or Twitter but a pin is not the same thing as a Facebook post or a tweet. The average lifespan of a tweet is 24 minutes, a Facebook post is 90 minutes and a pin is 1 week! Moreover, driving traffic to your Facebook page is almost impossible unless you pay Facebook to promote it and Facebook still got problems with hashtags. Driving traffic to your website with Pinterest is a lot easier but can people find your Pinterest profile with your unique username or do they have to search since you don’t have the same username for every social media platform? When it comes to usernames, no doubt we were extremely lucky. When we start Greenide, we were only able to claim Facebook and Twitter usernames because others have already been taken. We had use @greenidecom username for our both Instagram and Pinterest accounts, we also had to fill up forms and contact those websites in order to claim our rightful usernames.

Speed Up Your Website With Image Hosting Websites: Photo sharing websites are getting popular with each passing day and people are keeping their photos on these websites instead of keeping them on their phones or laptops. Actually, you are taking a big risk by keeping your photos on your phone or laptop because: Your laptop can easily be infected with viruses. Once you buy a new laptop, you have to manually copy all of your photos to the new one. You can easily lose your phone or laptop. There is no such thing as unlimited storage. The last reason is probably the biggest reason why most people prefer using photo sharing websites. Not all of the photo sharing websites give you unlimited storage but most of them give you more than enough. If it isn’t enough for you, just open a new email account and continue uploading, right?

Should You Disable Text Selection From Your Website: Sometimes you spend hours, maybe days to prepare a unique article for your website but it takes seconds for someone to copy that post of yours and share it through his/her website and it is not fair, right? We are in digital age and even ordinary people can easily start a blog with WordPress and they can put whatever they want in those blogs. Even if Google punish those websites which copy content from other websites by lowering their ratings but due to the information age, people can easily advertise and feature their content through social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Instagram; therefore, search engines are not one and only authority anymore. Most of the blogs, including big and popular ones, copy content from each other. They might not be copying and pasting contents sentence by sentence in order to keep their Google ranking high but when they see an interesting topic from other websites, they will probably share it by changing couple of sentences or after rewriting it. They don’t deny this fact and some of them are pretty honest about it. Top news/media websites like Mashable and Huffington Post are not even trying to hide it, they put HT (heard through) below the articles and give credit the websites.
