Convert PDF to JPG Online

Report Suspicious Sites to Google Spam Report


Google Spam Report


At the beginning, web technology was operated by the people who were committed to keep it safe. They were dedicated to build such a communication network that will turn the world into a Global Village. But there is a negative site everywhere. Some people always try to abuse the technology. They use technology to harm other people and thus try to get some personal benefits. What do you call them - Hacker, Spammer or simply Criminal? 


Google is trying to prevent the webspam. And you have a great opportunity to contribute to build a safer web along with Google Spam Report! Recently Google Webmaster Tool has introduced a new page through which you can report 10 types of suspicious site under following categories:
  • Paid Links - Page that sells or buys links
  • Objectionable Contents  - Page that contains inappropriate contents
  • Malware - Page that is infected
  • Other Google Products - Page that abuses AdSense, Google Maps etc. 
  • Something else is wrong - Page that is not webspam but has some other issues
  • Report Webspam - Page which is really webspam
  • Copyright and other legal issues - Page that violates copyright 
  • Personal/ Private - Page that discloses private information
  • Phishing - Page that asks for sensitive information like username, password etc.
  • Rich Snippets - Page that violates Google's Rich Snippet guidelines

Google defines webspam as - the pages that try to trick Google into ranking them highly. And before you file a webspam report, you should decide which of the above categories best describes the page. 

If the page has multiple identifiable issues, I think you should report the site which will punish it more! 



Here I would like to illustrate some practical situations - 


Copying Contents

If someone is copying contents from your site, you can report it to the Copyright and other legal issues category. And you must be the copyright owner. Or you can also report the site in Other Google Products category if that site uses Google AdSense Ads.



Link Sharing Site

Some sites share too much links. If you found a site which is primarily selling or buying links without providing services to the people, you can report that site under paid links. Users find it difficult to use the site due to the numerous links. 



Sites Sharing Malware/Virus

Some sites have downloadable contents. And often they share virus or malware. If you found a site that shares virus or malware, you can report this site in Malware category. 



Redirecting Sites

These sites are really boring for the users. Wherever you click on these sites, a pop up window may appear. Or you maybe redirected to another unwanted page. These sites could be reported in different categories. But I prefer Something else is wrong category. 



Site Revealing Private Information

Privacy has been a great concern now. Often we see, some sites reveals secret information about different individuals which is against privacy. If you found a site which discloses your personal information or someone else, you can report it in Personal/Private category. 



Sites asking passwords, username etc.

Some sites may ask your Facebook username or password to sign up or log in. Or they may want your Google username or password. Or they may ask for any information which they are not supposed to do. 

Sometimes you may find a fake site which exactly looks like a popular site. Suppose Facebok instead of Facebook. Or Goggle instead of Google. They are known as phishing sites. If you ever sign in to these sites by mistake, change your password immediately. Because you may loose your account anytime. 

If you found a phishing site, please report it in the Phishing category. It's popular method to hack someone's account. 



Really Webspam

If you found a site which contains wrong information, exchanging links, copying contents from others, too much posts within a few days, misguiding the readers, redirecting the visitors to unwanted sites - in a word Massacre - you can report this site in Really webspam category. You may find all sorts peculiarities there! 




Misleading Sites

Some sites mislead the usres. Suppose you search something in Google and found a site appropriate for your query. But after visiting the site, you've understood that this sites doesn't contain your desired contents. But it provides wrong information in Google search result. You can report this site in Rich Snippets category. 

These sites use such a description in the search result, that influences users to click. But when the visitors enter the page, they don't find necessary information. 

If you think, the contents of a site is not appropriate, then you can report it in Objectionable contents category. Or if you fails to decide the proper category, then use Something else is wrong option. 



The last thing I would like to tell you, I personally hate Phishing, Spamming, Copying and Malware sites. What do you hate most?

Create Short URL by Google URL Shortener


Shorten URLs by Google URL Shortener


Shortening URL is a great way to share large URLs. There are many free URL shorteners. Even some shorteners (ie. AdFly) offer revenue to the users. But I simply hate them. Because it bores people. More than two years ago I wrote about Tiny URL. But do you know, Google has a shortener too?! Let's try . . .




Follow the above link and you will get the following view:


Google URL Shortener Service


Now copy and paste your desired URL in the box and hit on the Shorten URL button. Immediately you will get a short URL in the right side. 

Remember, if you are not signed in to your Google account, you have to enter captcha. But if you're signed in, you don't need to type captcha and a list of short URLs create by you will be  kept in your account. You can also view the number of click on those short URLs! 

In the list of short URL, you will get detailed analysis of each URL. How many clicks from where, which browser, which operating system etc. 


For Example:

This is my site's URL - http://www.markspcsolution.com/

This is short URL - goo.gl/H4ydU2

Have you noticed, just 06 characters after goo.gl. Previously it was only 05 characters. Whatever the size of URL, you will get a small URL. 


Suppose, the URL of this post is as below - 


And the short URL of this is here - goo.gl/sK1ylX.. . And it's really short! 


When someone clicks on the short URL, he will be redirected to the main URL within a very short time. When you're sharing a large URL via mobile text, it could be difficult for you to type when the copy paste option is not available. But you can share short URL anytime, anywhere. :)




Note: All goo.gl URLs are public and can be accessed by anyone.

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:

Open a new tab in your browser and type - 

https://www.quantcast.com/markspcsolution.com

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.

  • A new window named General Tag will pop up. 
  • Enter your site's URL. ie. http://www.markspcsolution.com
  • 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.
