Boost Your PC Speed by Using SSD

In short you can explain an SSD (Solid State Drive) as modern HDD (Hard Disk Drive). What's the difference then? Maybe the functions are almost same but there are some big differences between the two. Go through the post to clear the concept . . .

What's an SSD A solid state drive or SSD is a storage device that uses non volatile flash memory along with necessary controller and chipset to store the data. It's somewhat like RAM, but unlike RAM it can store data for a long period of time. 
An SSD drive is considered to be more durable and stable in that sense - There is no moving parts i.e. platters, spindle, R/W head etc. which are available in traditional HDD.  

Advantages of SSD over HDD If you use SSD as your primary boot device instead of HDD then you may get the following advantages -  Faster performanceLower power consumptionBetter vibration resistanceLower heat No noiseIn short we can say, SSD is more durable and stable than traditional HDD. 

After installing SSD, you will…

Got my 1st Payment from Google AdSense!!

To be honest, I'm really surprised. Just 20 days ago, I shared a success story - 2nd Payment from 360 Ads! In that post I mentioned, due to the transaction issue, my AdSense Payment is not coming to bank account. But only a few days ago, I got my Payout from Google AdSense

Only a few months ago, Google introduced Bank Wire Transfer for Bangladeshis. And I selected this payment system immediately. Then Google sent $272 to my Bank Account. But the payment was rejected by Citi Bank NA Singapore due to compliance issue. And I got disappointed. 

Then I've contacted AdSense team. They assured that, the problem will be solved soon. Days were passing but I found no luck. Again they sent payment of $438 on 21 February, 2014. And I was continuously checking my bank account. Few days later, AdSense Compliance Team informed me that they need some additional information to verify my account. I've provided the necessary information. 

After checking my Bank Account for more than 10 times,…

Hey bloggers! Hope you're running your blogs fine. Today I'm gonna share a simple  related posts widget with you. You know how important it is. A related posts widget can retain your visitors. It helps to increase visitors' engagement with the site. Have you noticed, when you visit a site to know something and get a related post just at the end of that post you also read the related post! 

Let's consider my own case. Few days ago I visited My Blogger Tricks to know something. At the end of the post there were 05 related posts. I've also read one of those related posts. From that post, I discovered another posts which I like! After reading the 03 posts from that site, I've used the search option to find another post. 

And this only happens due to the related posts widget. Instead of one pageview, My Blogger Tricks got at least five pageviews from me. And I spent almost an hour on that site! Can you imagine? One hour instead of five minutes. And this is exactly wha…

Managing Windows 8 Tiles

If you ask someone - What's new in Windows 8? There could be 100 answers. But what should come first? Definitely Tiles. With live tiles, Windows 8 has got an absolutely different look. But most of the PC users are not comfortable with this attractive feature! Users are often confused while working. Today I'd like to discuss about working with Windows 8 Tiles. 

What are the Tiles Actually? 
In fact, tiles are the modern look of previous start menu. Due to the growing demand for Smart Phones and Tablets, the sales volume of desktop and laptop PCs is falling down. And ultimately it hits the market share of Windows. And definitely the future of Windows was  at stake. 
And that's why Microsoft was looking for innovation. Windows Team was trying to make an operating system which works with PCs, tablets and mobiles. Windows 8 is such an operating system. 
And live tiles have been added to Windows to make it more popular. Windows Tiles let you do many things which are not possible by …

Verify WordPress Site in Google, Bing & Yandex

WordPress, you know, the most sophisticated platform of blogging. It has both free and premium versions. But free version doesn't let you customize the theme or edit CSS. That means, if you don't go premium, you can't edit the code of your WordPress site. But WordPress allows you verify the site in Google, Bing & Yandex through Website Verification Services. 


Last year, I published a post on Blogger Vs. WordPress. If you're interested to know more about blogger and WordPress, you can have a look. 


What WordPress Says about Site Verification & SEO?
WordPress provides enough information about your site's traffic. But if you would like to know more, then you can verify your site in Google or Bing Webmaster. Though it's not necessary to verify your site to be indexed by Google, Bing or other search engines. WordPress itself takes care of your site and it does all necessary SEO for you. When you publish new post, WordPress automatically sends data to search eng…

Convert Image into Icon Online!

Creating icons is somewhat difficult task. The giant photo editing tool I mean Adobe Photoshop has no option to convert an image into icon. Even the graphics master Adobe Illustrator doesn't have any icon format save option. But there are some converters which can convert image into icon. And most of these tools are premium. In Marks PC Solution, I hardly discuss about premium tools. :) 

What is Icon?
Icon is a special type of image format. And normally it's not used to share photos or images. Usually icons are used in folder or hard disk drive to distinguish it from others. And normally icon is small in size. It maybe 16x16, 32x32 or 64x64. 

Do you remember, In 2012, I wrote a post about Showing Picture on USB Flash Drive. And that custom picture must be an icon. That means the picture format must be .ico in order to show in USB drive.

Got my 2nd Payment from 360 Adds!

This is actually a success story. I haven't shared any success story with you yet. And to be honest I didn't have any notable success earlier. I was just writing and writing. And continuously trying to help my readers just for nothing. Because visitors' feedback's, comments, opinions give me the mental satisfaction. 

Marks PC Solution got AdSense ads more than a year ago. But due to some compliance problems, AdSense rejected my site for 5 times! And after waiting for a long time, I applied for AdSense again. And this time my site was strong enough and got approved by AdSense. And I've earned more than $700 from AdSense so far. However not a single dollar is in my hand due to the transaction problem!  


Couple of months ago, I got an advertisement offer from 360 Adds through +Anzaq Ali. At first I thought this is fake offer. I got these types of offers earlier. And I was only interested to monetize my site through AdSense. But Anzaq was able to convince me. And later I…
