Quantify your Site by Quantcast

Quantcast - A Great Tool for Audience Measurement

Hello bloggers! Hope you're doing fine in blogging. Today I'm gonna write a review on Quantcast. Actually quantcast is a great site for audience measurement tool. You can collect huge information through Google Analytics. But I think Google Analytics is too heavy and sometimes it's really difficult to use. In that case, quantcast is more comfortable and convenient for the webmasters. 

Quantcast is also capable of showing the real time situation of your site worldwide! Yes! Just like Google Analytics, quantcast can fetch your real time visitors through world map. Thus you can see who is in your site right now. 

Do you use Web Rank Toolbar? I've found quantcast from Web Rank Toolbar. Earlier whenever I opened Web Rank Toolbar in Iron Browser, I saw my site is not ranked by quantcast. Because quantcast only measures your site when you set up its code in your site. 

Then I implemented quantcast code in my site and get it quantified! See the current status below: 

Or you can directly visit quantcast to check the status of Marks PC Solution. Hit on the  quantcast image button:

If you would like to qantify your site, follow the method below:

Open a new tab in your browser and type -

Just replace the red part of the URL with yours. Now go to this address. Check your site's rank if available. And also look upper right corner. You will see - Not quantified. If your site is already qantified then you will see Quantified button. 

How to get Quantified? 

In order to get quantified, you must have an account with quantcast. I know most of you have no account qith quantcast. First open an account there and follow the steps below. 

  • Look at the right panel - Add a Website. Hit on it. 
  • A new window named General Tag will pop up. 
  • Enter your site's URL. ie.
  • Copy the code from Your Tag and paste it just before the </body> tag in your site.
  • Now hit on the Submit Site button. 

Wait for a few days. You will get an email notification when your site gets quantified. 

Code Implementation Help for Blogger

Directly go to Blogger Dahsboard/ Control Panel > Now go to Template > Edit HTML > Press Ctrl + F within HTML Layout > type </body> > Place the copied code just before the ending body tag. That's it.

How to Print PowerPoint Slides?

Printer Friendly Version of PowerPoint Slides

PowerPoint slides are usually very colorful. A presentation may include colorful backgrounds, charts, images etc. The slide maker always tries to make the slides attractive so that the audience concentrate to the presentation. Those slides though look amazing on a projector screen, may not be printer friendly at all! If you print a color slide normally, you can't read this well. 

Not many people need to print from Microsoft PowerPoint. Some of you may know the power point printing tips. But most guys copy the slides one by one and paste them to Microsoft Word! :) 

Today I'm gonna discuss about how to print PowerPoint slides as handouts. 

PowerPoint 2003

Open your presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint 2003. Now press Ctrl+P to open the Print Window. Look at the image below:

Print Options of PowerPoint 2003

Go to the Print What option and choose Handouts. In the color option, choose either Blank and White or Grayscale. Now go to the Handouts option > Slides per page > Choose 3, 4, 6 or 9 as your wish. 

Almost done! Choose your printer and hit on the OK button to print. 

PowerPoint 2010/ 2007

Office 2010 is the smartest version of Microsoft Office. I really like the print options of Office 2010. PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 is somewhat different but most of the options are almost same. 

To print handouts in Office 2010, open your presentation. Then press Ctrl + P to open the print window. Now look at the image below:

PowerPoint 2010 Print Options

From the Slides option, choose the number of slides. And from the Color option, choose Grayscale. Choose your printer and hit on the Print button to print. 

Note: If you would like to save your paper and ink, you can choose Outline instead of slides. Simply go to the Slides and choose outline. Check the preview. It it's okay then hit on the Print button. 

Important Keyboard Shortcuts
  • Press F5 to start the slide show
  • Press Shift+F5 to start the show from the current slide
  • Press Spacebar/ Enter to change the slides
  • Press Esc to end the show

Hope you've enjoyed the post. leave comment to share with us . . .

Download Puzzle Flash Game - Save Them

Save Them Flash Game

Hey Flash Game Lovers! Today you're getting an amazing puzzle game - Save Them! It's a flash game and the download size is only 382 KB. In this game, you have to move 3 missionaries and 3 cannibals from one side to another through a boat. In any side, if the number of cannibals is more than the number of missionaries, then cannibals will eat the missionaries! 

Download the game from the above link. It's a zipped file. Download size is only 382 KB! After downloading the game, you have to unzip it first. Then double click on the SaveThem to start the game. 

How to Play?

After starting the game, you will get the instruction. You have to make sure that in no side, the number of cannibals is not more than the number of missionaries. This is your only challenge. You have to take them from left side to the right side of the lake through a boat. 

06 Characters in the left side

Press on a character to jump to the boat. Thus you can take any two of them at a time. Then hit on the GO button to move the boat. After reaching the other side, click on a character to jump to the land. 

Thus you have to move all the six characters from one side to another. 


It's a very challenging game. Not many people are able to solve it. And only few people are lucky enough to solve it at first try. Even I have to try this game more than 10 times to solve it!

Let's solve it - 

Step 1

Take 1 Missionary and 1 Cannibal in the boat from the right side. Then move the boat to the left side pressing the GO button. Now jump the Cannibal to the land. And get back to the right side with the missionary. Jump the missionary to the land. 

Step 2

This time, take the remaining 2 cannibals to the boat and move to the left side. Jump one of them to the land. And the other cannibal will back to the right side with the boat. Jump the cannibals to the land.

Step 3

Now take the remaining 2 missionaries in the boat and go to the right side. Jump both missionaries to the land. Now there are 2 missionaries and 2 cannibals in the left side. And 1 cannibal and 1 missionary in the right side. See the image below - 

Save Them Screenshot

Step 4

Now take 1 missionary and 1 cannibal to the boat from the left side. Move the boat to the right side. Jump the cannibal to the right side and take the missionary to the boat. Now move the boat to the left side with two missionaries. Jump both missionaries to the left side. We're almost done! 

Save Them Flash Game

Step 5

Now take the only one cannibal from the left side. Move the boat to the right. Take another cannibal from the right side. Back to the left side with two cannibals. Jump one of them to the left side. 

Again go to the right side. Take the last cannibal in the boat and move it to the left. Now jump both cannibals to the land. Solved! 

Save Them Flash Game Solved

Always remember, the number of cannibals can't be more than the number of missionaries. Then it will be easier for you to solve the game. :)

Trues and Falses in Optimizing AdSense

Couple of days ago Google AdSense offered its first online course for the Publishers. And I've been too. The course will be opened on 20th May, 2014. Register now for the course and take a Pre-Course Assessment to justify your AdSense knowledge! 

Course Outline

  • Introduction

  • Unit 1 - CPM and CPC: Winning Valuable Ads

  • Unit 2 - Clicks and CTR: Designing and Placing Your Ads

  • Unit 3 - Impressions: Showing More Ads

  • Wrapping Up

  • Final Assessment 

Just after getting the invitation for the course, I took the Pre-Course Assessment Test. There are 15 questions. You just need to choose one of the options - True, False and I don't know. 

I scored 12 out of 15. This assessment will help you understand what you already know about AdSense and what you still have to learn. Have a look at the questions (modified) of Pre-Course Assessment - 

    1. Enabling both text and image ads increases the auction pressure for your website’s Ad and is very likely to increase your AdSense Earning. (True)
    2. Every page should have a 728x90 banner ad on it because this is the highest performing Ad Size. (False)
    3. Blocking Ad categories in AdSense account will not affect your revenue because the auction will just replace Ads from that category with ads from other categories. (False)
    4. You can put the same Ad unit into multiple custom channels. (True)
    5. AdSense Experiments can be used to test and compare the performance of different sizes or styles of your Ad units. (True)
    6. CPC and CTR are different acronyms for the same thing. Both of them measure how often users click on Ads. (False)
    7. The only way to be sure that you’ve put Ads in the right places on your site is to test frequently and understand the behavior of your users. (True)
    8. The best way to format text Ads is to blend/ mix with your content as much as possible. (False)
    9. If your page calls for an Ad to be served but no Ad is returned, this will be considered as an Ad request, a page view, and an impression. (False)
    10. In the AdSense auction, if Advertiser Sami bids $2.40 CPC, Advertiser Raj bids $2.10 CPC, and Advertiser Chris bids $2.15 CPC, Advertiser Sami wins and pays $2.40 for the impression. (False)
    11. With contextual targeting, the Google web crawler analyzes colors, images and videos to match ads to your content. (False)
    12. The number of AdSense Ads you can place on a desktop site is the same as you can place on a mobile site. (True)
    13. Page speed is important to Ad revenue because users are more likely to stay on your page and return again if the site loads faster. (True)
    14. If the AdSense crawler can't crawl a web page, the Ads displayed to that page may not be relevant to the page content. (True)
    15. A rejected Ad request occurs when site's content does not comply with AdSense policies. (False)

    Explanation of the False Ideas/ Concepts/ Notions

    Idea # 2

    728 x 90 Banner Ads perform well. But it doesn't mean that your page must have it. It  depends on your site's style and type. 

    Idea # 3

    Blocking non performing Ad categories may increase your revenue if done properly. But personally, I don't believe it - Learn more . . .

    Idea # 6

    CPC - Cost Per Click is the amount you earn each time when a user clicks on your Ad. CPC is determined by the Advertiser. 

    CTR - Click Through Rate is the number of clicks against pageviews. If you get 2 clicks against 10 pageviews, then your CTR is 20%.

    Idea # 8

    Blending Ad Units in such a way that users can't differentiate between Ads and Contents may be harmful for your AdSense account. Even you could be banned from AdSense program!

    Idea # 9

    If your page calls for an Ad to be served but no Ad is returned it will considered as rejected Ad request. 

    Idea # 10

    The Advertiser with the lowest CPC will win the bid. Advertiser Raj bids $2.10 CPC. So he will win the bid not Raj. 

    Idea # 11

    Contextual targeting analyzes your keywords, topics, text, language, link structure, page structure etc. It considers the central theme of your site rather than a single topic. To be honest, I don't know much about contextual targeting.  

    Idea # 15

    A rejected Ad request occurs when your page calls for an Ad to be served but no Ad is returned. But if your site doesn't comply with the AdSense policies, simply you will be banned from AdSense!

    Working with Photoshop Stroke

    How to Apply Stroke in Photoshop

    Photoshop Stroke belongs to layer style. You can add stroke outside of an image, text or shape. When you apply stroke over something, it looks like a border or outline. You can also choose different colors for stroke. And you can also adjust the size, position and opacity while applying stroke. 

    Last month I wrote about how to work with Fill & Opacity in Photoshop. I think you should also have a look to this tutorial. It will be helpful for you. 

    Photoshop Stroke

    Look at the two images below side by side. The left one has no outline. But the right one has a border outside of it. 

    Photoshop Stroke Effect

    No stroke has been applied on the left image. And the right image has a stroke outside of it. You can also use stroke with texts and shapes. Stroke can highlight something. Sometimes after applying stroke over something, you can minimize the fill. In that time, you will get stroke highlighted and the inside dimmed! Learn more . . . 

    How to Apply Stroke?

    If you wanna apply stroke over an image then open it. Or create a new document and then type something or take any shape on which you wanna apply stroke. Now make sure you're on the right layer I mean your image or text is selected. Also make sure that your Layer window is turned on. Now go to the strong as shown in the image below. 

    Strok Option in Adobe Photoshop CS5

    Hit on the fx (Add a layer style) at the end of layer panel and choose Stroke. Now you will get the Layer Style window. Look at the Stroke options below:

    Stroke in Layer Style Window

    Adjust the size and look at the effect of your stroke outside the image or text. This is very important. Sometimes 1 px doesn't make any sense. Though it depends on the situation I prefer 2 or 3 px. Certainly a fat stroke will not make any sense. 

    Keep Position - Outside, Blend Mode - Normal, Fill Type - Color and Opacity - as your wish. If you minimize the opacity from 100% to 60 or 70%, then your stroke color will be darken somewhat. 

    And finally choose a brilliant color for the stroke. Hit on the color box and select different colors to test the result. After choosing the color, hit on the OK button. 

    You can also explore some additional options from Layer Style window. Suppose Drop Shadow, Gradient Overlay, Satin, Bevel and Emboss these are really cool options here. These can turn your normal image into an outstanding one. And these are really awesome for creating superb text! 

    After applying stroke, also adjust the Fill and Opacity of the layer. These control the transparency of your image. Adjusting the transparency will give you a completely different look.

    Delete All Emails from Yahoo Inbox!!

    How to Delete All Emails from Yahoo

    By the grace of Facebook, your inbox is getting fat everyday. If your Yahoo Inbox are filled with thousand of unnecessary messages, then it could be difficult for you to find the important mails. Gmail users can easily delete all emails from inbox because it has option to select all messages at the same time. 

    Like Gmail, Yahoo has also the Select All option. But the Select All option of Yahoo can't select the whole inbox. It is capable of selecting the loaded messages only. It could be 50, 100, 200 or how much messages you've loaded at a time. If you wanna delete a large volume of messages from Yahoo inbox, then you have to be little bit tricky! 

    Today, I'm gonna discuss how to quickly delete all messages from Yahoo Mail inbox. 

    Before you start - 

    Make sure you're using the latest version of your browser and latest interface of Yahoo Mail. Firefox or Internet Explorer is optimized for Yahoo Mail. Chrome users could get a message to change the browser. And definitely you need a better net connection while running this task.

    Deleting All Messages of Yahoo Inbox

    • Sign in to Yahoo and open your Yahoo Mail Inbox. Never press Esc. Let the mailbox load completely. 
    • By default, 50 messages will be loaded at a time. 
    • If you scroll down, another 50 messages will be loaded. Thus continue scrolling to the bottom. 
    • If you get bored then delete the already loaded messages. Hit on the Select All button and press the Delete key.

    Select & Delete All Messages from Yahoo Mail

    • After pressing the Delete button, you will get the following notificaiton.

    Delete All Messages Notification

    • Hit OK to delete all the selected messages. 

    If you just continue scrolling down for 2/3 minutes, I believe you will be able to delete more than 5000 emails at the same time. 

    Thus if your inbox has more than 10000 emails, I don't think you need more than 7/8 minutes to delete them. :) 

    Now look at my inbox below - 

    Blank Inbox of Yahoo Mail

    My inbox is blank. And there are more than 2000 mails in my Trash box. And it took a very short time to delete all messages from the Yahoo inbox by using the above method!
