Top 4 Free Tools To Compress/Optimize Images For Your Blog

Posted by Rajat Kulshrestha
Pictures increases readers attention and therefore any blog post is incomplete without a relevant picture in it to make it interesting to read, but the bitter truth is, images increase the page loading time which may reduce your conversions and also disturbs your blog readers, and if the problem persists for long time then it may harm your search engine rankings as well as you may loose your precious readers, so it is highly recommended to use little sized images of good quality on your blog so that it can minimize the site loading time.

Why To Optimize Images Before Uploading On A Blog ?

People on internet are always in hurry, what ever they want, they need results and information quickly or else they don't hesitate to move on to some other blog. If your blog has heavy images and slow loading time then it will surely increase the bounce rate of your blog which is not a good sign from the point of view of advertisers and search engines, so to grab your visitors, you need to take some serious efforts by improving your blog loading speed.
Lossless image compression

What Are The Best Image Compression Tools I Am Talking About ?

1: Kraken

Kraken is a web tool designed to optimize and compress images. It supports both lossy and lossless compression but it is recommended to compress images losslessly as it will not degrade the quality of your image.I am using this tool since last month and now I am using it more often, as it manages to provide the highest compression ratio as compared to other free tools. Kraken comes as paid and free version both.You can compress almost any image by using the free web interface, but the free version can tolerate a maximum of 1Mb of image size while the paid version can handle the images which are upto 10Mb.

2: Puny PNG

Puny PNG is lossless image compression online tool. It can compress your image to the best possible extent without degrading the picture quality.The compression ratio of this tool is much better than any other tool. Now you must be thinking if this tool is the best then why the hell I have kept it on second postion ? The reason behind it is if you are using the free web interface of the tool then you are allowed to compress and optimize only 20 images, but if considering the paid version of PunyPNG, then it is unmatched and the best. If you are a professional web designer then it is recommended  to go with the paid version of this tool , the plans start from just $3.

3: Yahoo Smush it

As the name suggests, the tool is owned by Yahoo. It is also the lossless compression tool and the best part is the tool is absolutely free to use. It uses the optimization techniques to remove the unnecessary or redundant chunks from an image without compromising the picture quality, but the compression ratio of this tool is not very good always and sometimes it takes lot of time in uploading and downloading the picture.

4: Dyanamic Drive Tools

 This tool will help you in optimizing as well as in converting your image from one extension to another for free.It uses lossy compression techniques and has a user friendly web interface. It allows you to either paste the URL of any image located on web or to upload the image from your local machine. When you upload or paste the url of any image, it will automatically show results accordimg to the size and degraded amount. You may download the optimized image from the list according to your need.

What Is The Secret to Get Fully Approved Google Adsense? [Genuine Way]

Posted by Rajat Kulshrestha
Adsense approval trick genuine wayAs we all know Google adsense is one of the best way available to generate revenue out of blogs and websites due to its high CPC. Few year ago getting an approved adsense account was easy like a piece of cake but today it is not less than a pain. Most of the newbies leave blogging just because they fail to get adsense. Actully adsense is not everything, if you have a great website with good traffic then you can get dozens of ways to generate much more revenue as compared to Google adsense. However adsense is always the first preference and dream for most of the webmasters. Recently my blog got approved by adsense so today I have decided to reveal all the tactics which I implemented without holding anything back specially for my blogging mates who have entered into blogging recently and looking for the tricks to get approved by adsense. To tell you honestly I have not used any trick to get adsense account, I just keep my eyes on what adsense wants from our websites and implemented the same on my blog. I have created a blueprint of the keypoints below that worked for me:

Indian Publishers Do Not Need To Wait For 6 Months For Adsense

If you are from asian country and new to blogging then you must have read eligibility to participate in Google adsense . It is clearly mentioned there that 'if the publishers are from asian counties like india and china then they must have owned their website for atleast 6 months', but trust me it is actually not true and I am not telling this to you only from others perspectives but I have experienced this by my own. I belong to India and got adsense approved when my blog was 3.5 months old and even I have heard that there are many asian (indian) publishers who got adsense within their first or second month. So if they can get it, I can get it then you also can get it for sure.

Web Master Quality Guide Lines

Its very important to stay aware about the Google Webmaster Guidelines and then work accordingly. You should be knowing whether your website has the content which adsense program can accepts or not and make sure your blog has atleast 35 posts, it will make adsense bots to understand and crawl your site more properly.

My Blog Has About us, Privacy Policy, Contact Us Pages

Don't forget to include Privacy policy, about us, Contact us Pages. You might wonder why the pages like privacy policy,terms of use are to be included if your visitors are not reading them but if you are going to enter into an online business then you should not leave any mark of your amateurism . You should include these pages in your website or blog, and there are online tools available for generating the privacy policy and terms of use of your website so you can just use them without taking any pain, this will surely increase the chances of your adsense approval.

HTML And XML Sitemaps: Both Are Needed

You must be knowing the importance of a XML sitemap to improve the visibility of your blog in search engines and yes it is true that search engine bots can crawl your whole site with XML sitemaps only that you have submitted to Google Webmaster tools, but don't underestimate the power of HTML sitemaps, as Google has started giving more importance to a user friendly site than a search engine spiders site so it is recommended to use both sitemaps for the easy navigation for both bots and users. This will make your site more professional which is loved by adsense.

Organic Traffic Matters Alot

Organic traffic refers to the the traffic from search engines. The most quality traffic has always been considered as the targeted traffic coming from search engines. You must have read several times that traffic doesn't matters to adsense, yes it is true but to tell you honestly according to my personal experience, constant organic traffic matters to adsense however the traffic coming from any other source doesn't actually matters. You do not need to have a very popular site before applying to Google. Even If you are able to get atleast 200-300 hundred page views from search engines then you are about to get approved by adsense. Cheers!

Alexa Rank Has Nothing To Do With Adsense

Does your blog has a poor alexa rank ? Are you not applying to Adsense just because you are having a poor alexa rank ? If yes then don't panic, alexa algorithms have nothing to do with adsense. Alexa tracks only those hits which come from the alexa people while adsense bots keeps track of each and every hit and the traffic source. There might be a possiblity that even if your site is getting thousands of genuine traffic from around the world but your alexa rank is still poor. So if you are having a quality site but poor alexa then you can straight away apply for adsense.

Original And Quality Content

Google always love crawling original and quality content. Remember, your blog is your brand,  so do you think is it good to promote your brand by copying others ?  No, you should always keep your brand unique and your words should express passion towards your writing. This doesn't means that your fellow bloggers are your competitors. You should take ideas and suggestions from your fellow bloggers to keep yourself up to date. If it is difficult for you to get content ideas then you can read other blogs of your niche and take ideas from there, and try to make that content more interesting and valuable to readers by writing it in your own style without spinning the content.

No Copyrighted Material Including Pictures

Most of the newbies make their article more attractive by getting any image from Google images and attaching them to the post. This should be completely avoided as most of the images available on internet are the property of their creator only. Always search for the loyalty free images to attach them with your post and don't hesitate to give image credits wherever required. The alternative good option is if you are good at photoshop then you can create your own images because even if you have even a single copyrighted material or image then your adsense application will always get disapproved. So, its better to play safe.

 Make Affiliate And Bad Links As No-Follow

If your blog has affiliate links then you should always make them as no-follow so that the adsense bots cannot crawl them and a good practice is to make all the links as no-follow which are not related with the content of your website.Doing this will increase reputation of your blog/website and all of the google services including adsense love reputed content around the web.

ALT Tag In Images is Must

Google and adsense spiders are unable to read the images that you have attached with your content so it is not a good practice to add images without adding ALT tags to them. ALT tags will enable adsense bots to understand the description of your image to show relevant advertisements. Try not to stuff alt tags with keywords or otherwise Google animals might penalize you.

Remove Adsense Alternatives Before Applying

You should remove scripts of any adsense alternatives before applying for adsense to make Adsense feel that your website is made only to provide value to your readers so just remove all the alternatives that are placed to generate revenue out of your blog and don't worry you can use them again just after your adsense application gets approved.

Website Structure And Navigation

 Adsense bots love crawling the content which is easy to navigate. You should create relevant categories and menus and make sure each category is having atleast 4-5 posts before applying to adsense. If your website is easy to navigate for users then adsense will give more preference to your blog. To ensure that, always try to use simple,responsive and light templates with more white background rather than a colorful template.Lets take an example of http://www.labnol.org/ .It is a very popular blog and earns millions from adsense only, but still using a very simple looking template which is easy to navigate.

Use Images Only When Required

If your website is loaded with lots of images then it will surely make your website slow, which is not a good sign for adsense approval. You can not ignore adding image to your content as it makes the post more interactive but use images only when they are required. Adsense loves content and it shows relevant advertisements to your readers by crawling content of your blog.

Make Sure Your Content Is Not Violating Adsense Policies

 You should ensure that the content of your website is not violating adsense policies. If your blog has a single word of prohibited content then you will be straight away disapproved by adsense. Make sure your content is not revolving around hacking and cracking tricks, adult content, pirated material etc. To know more about the prohibited content for adsense read here

On-Page Optimization is Must

On-page optimization is the primary need of any kind of online business. Doing on-page seo does not require any expertise.Even if you are following basics pf on-page seo tactics then you are awesome. This will definitely start increasing the organic traffic of your blog day by day and if you are updating periodically  then I am sure adsense will be yours very soon. You can download and go through the Search Engine Optimization Guide By Google. Implementing basic tactics of on-page optimization has played a major role for me to grow the traffic of my blog to 100 page views per day to 2000 pageviews per day within two months.

Stay Away From Adsense Scams

There are hundreds of adsense scams available around the internet. Popular sites like fiverr have many gigs that claims to give you a fully approved adsense account within 1-2 days for $5. Never buy adsense account from anyone Those people may give you a fully activated adsense but within few days it will get disapproved. If you ask this from any of the pro blogger, he will surely make you aware about the adsense scams as it is impossible to fool adsense and google for long run.

Verdict: Actually you do not need any cheap tricks to get adsense because if you are on the right track then adsense does not have any right to dissaprove your account.Try to stay in contact with your fellow bloggers, take help from them and keep track on how they are making things go possible and after reading this post I wish you will also be able to get one adsense for you. All the best !

How I Got High PR (6-9) Backlinks To My New Blog For Free [REVEALED]

Posted by Rajat Kulshrestha 28 Comments
Do you juggle around the internet to find out how to build quality backlinks ? If you are a webmaster then you must be knowing the importance of high quality backlinks to your site. To remind you again yes they are a very valuable part of off-page optimization. They are responsible (not completely) to rank your keyword in SERP. There are also other factors  which google loves about a site (other than on-page optimization) like domain authority,domain age, page rank but unfortunately as they are not completely in our control, so the most crucial part left to get traffic from search engines is on-page optimization (most important) and building high quality backlinks so that you can try your luck to outrank your competitors. But wait have you already heard about this line: 'Don't build backlinks,earn them' ? If yes then it is absolutely correct as if you are building a quantity of spam links then surely one or the other day google animals will penalize you and make you out from the game, But if you are able to get do-follow backlinks from high PR and high authoritive sites then Google will start loving your blog slowly.

High PR Backlinks
   
I have recently noticed that the traffic on my blog from google is increasing slowly day by day after I got few high PR backlinks and this increasing traffic from search engines could be one of the reason for the recent adsense approval on my new blog in spite of being an indian publisher. Anyways lets get back to the point and let me tell you how I got the high PR backlinks for free without wasting your precious time.

 Which High PR Backlinks I Got and How ?

1) Youtube.com (PR 9)

Youtube is the most popular video sharing and streaming site in the world and also the largest search engine of videos. If you create your own youtube video tutorial and provide a link of your blog in the video description then it can get your blog a huge exposure but the link will be no-follow hence adding no value to the search engine rankings. So how I got a do-follow backlink from youtube ? It is actually pretty simple for the verified youtube accounts (like mine). To get an instant do follow backlink from youtube you can
  • Log in to your youtube account.
  • Go to' video manager'
  • From the left sidebar click on 'Channel settings' >>'Advanced'

Now you are done. Alexa will soon index your backlink in its next update. Enjoy.

How to get a verified youtube account ?

If you are not having a verified youtube account then you will not be able to get do-follow backlink from youtube, but no worries, you can get a verified youtube account in minutes by following the below steps:

  • The blog or website which you want to associate with youtube must also be verified in Google webmasters already with the same Google account. So sign in to your youtube account with the same google account which is already associated with the Google webmaster tools
  • Now go to  http://www.youtube.com/verify . It will ask you about your country and your phone number. Just enter the details and in the next stage enter the verification code which you will recieve as a text message/call from youtube.
  • Congrats you have now verified your youtube account now follow the steps above to get the Do-follow backlink from youtube.

2) Google Plus (PR 9) 

 Google plus is one of the most popular social networking site. The backlinks and your social profile on google plus is a serious concern for google SERP. It usually provide no-follow backlinks to any link but with the same process how I got the do-follow backlink from Google plus you can also get the same by following the steps below :
  • Login to google+
  • Go to Profile>About
  • Scroll down untill you get 'Links' section. 
  • Put your website's name and URL here and hit save button.

3) Pinterest (PR 9) 

With over 70 million active users, pinterest is a high authority social networking site with a page rank of 9 that can give a huge amount of exposure to your brand. To get a backlink from Pinterest I shared a URL of one of my blog post inside the description area of one of the pin and after few days I noticed that the link was successfully indexed by alexa. You can also get the backlink from  pinterest by following the same killer trick.

4) Google Drive (PR 8)

Google drive provides free cloud storage and can also be used for file sharing. It  is a high authority website with page rank 8. I got a do-follow backlink from google drive with a crazy trick. The credit of this trick actually goes to Kulwant Nagi sir. You can also follow the below steps to get the do-follow link from google drive:
  • Create a basic HTML page with an anchor text of your blog. If you don't want to mess with HTML then just copy the code from below which I had created for myself but you just need change the Trickseek with your blog's URL and paste in a notepad and save it with a .html/.htm extension.
  • Go to Google Drive.
  • Hit the red 'Create' button on the left pane and create a new folder.
  • Select the new folder and right click on it to change its sharing settings from private to 'Public on the web'.
  • Now open the folder and and upload the HTML file created in the first step.
  • Congrats you have now got a do-follow backlink from google drive. 
  • To verify the link ,click on 'Details' in the right pane of Google drive and scroll down untill you get  'Hosting' section, inside that you will notice a hosted link of your uploaded HTML file like this. So now its great as your HTML file with a do-follow link to your blog is now hosted on PR-8 google drive. Enjoy.

5) Storify (PR 8)

Have you ever heard about storify ? If not then to tell you storify is a social tool that allows its users to create, link and share cool stories from any where from the whole web-o-sphere including social media sites. The best part about this awesome 8 PR tool is that it provides do-follow backlinks. Recently I got a do-follow backlink from storify so I am sharing the exact steps so that you can also get this awesome backlink for your website by following them:
  • Create a good quality and search engine optimized post greater than 500 words.
  • Go to Storify.com
  • Create a new account or login with your existing facebook/twitter account.

  • Click on embed URL and enter the URL which you want to link. This can be the URL of the homepage of your blog.

  • Publish story on storify
  • Now its time to publish your awesome story.
The point here to note is that you can not create your custom anchor texts on this website, the anchor text will be the original title of your blog post. I would like to also mention that the special credit for this crazy trick goes to the very famous internet marketer/PHP developer Enstine Muki sir as after reading his post I was able to get the do-follow backlink from storify and see today I am sharing my positive experience about it here.

6) Reddit (PR 8)

 Reddit is the most popular social bookmarking site with more than 5.2 billion pageviews per month. People can share content and contribute to the community. Backlinks from reddit are no-follow but they will surely provide some authority to your site. To get a backlink from reddit you just share your valuable blog post links with reddit, after few days alexa will start showing a backlink from reddit to your blog. But be careful. Don't try to game reddit by spamming otherwise you will definitely be thrown out of the community permanently by moderators.

7) Imgur (PR 6)

Imgur is the world's most popular image sharing site with more than 3 million unique page views daily. Awesome images (Mostly funny) can go viral in seconds. What I found is getting backlinks from imgur is as simple as a piece of cake and even the backlinks are also counted as alexa backlinks. What you have to only do is just create an account on imgur and upload any image and in its description, provide a link to your blog and its done.
