Use Labels to Organize Blog Posts



 The point of having labels is to divide your posts into categories. That way, it's easy to find and read everything you've written on a particular topic. You don't have to decide on all the labels at this point - just have a general idea of how you want to categorize your future posts. Help your readers find other posts you've written by adding a gadget that lists all your labels. I’m sure that a label gadget helps search engines crawl your site, which is a good thing indeed. Hope this helps some. This method will help you organize older posts without having to reconstruct your blog. Then when you create new page you can start fresh.

Auto Responders



This blog is mostly about building and maintaining a web site for new beginners and experienced web builders. I have been researching the net as well as adding some of my knowledge to my blog. After writing this blog, I realize that auto responder is the life of your web site. They help you build a list for your site. Some people think that a web site is a business and they will make money from there site. They couldn’t be more wrong. No customers no business. I have added Aweber to my site for two reasons 1.After doing some researching I know that Aweber is the best auto responder out there. 2.It has been my experience that most companies just want your money  with no return. Aweber will work with you to help your business grow, also I will get a small commission if you join from my site. That what internet marketing is all about. If we buy from each other we all make a little money to help maintain our sites.

Google Hacking

Google hacking is the term used when a hacker tries to find exploitable targets and sensitive data by using search engines. The Google Hacking Database (GHDB) is a database of queries that identify sensitive data. Although Google blocks some of the better known Google hacking queries, nothing stops a hacker from crawling your site and launching the Google Hacking Database queries directly onto the crawled content.
What a Hacker can do if your Website is Vulnerable
Information that the Google Hacking Database identifies:
  • Advisories and server vulnerabilities
  • Error messages that contain too much information
  • Files containing passwords
  • Sensitive directories
  • Pages containing logon portals
  • Pages containing network or vulnerability data such as firewall logs.
How to Check for Google Hacking Vulnerabilities
The easiest way to check whether your web site & applications have Google hacking vulnerabilities, is to use a Web Vulnerability Scanner. A Web Vulnerability Scanner scans your entire website and automatically checks for pages that are identified by Google hacking queries. (Note: Your web vulnerability scanner must be able to launch Google hacking queries).
Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner includes an offline copy of the Google Hacking Database (GHDB), allowing to identify pages which can be exploited using search engines.
Preventing Google Hacking Attacks
Verify the all pages identified by Google hacking queries. Since these pages generally provide information which should not be found on your web site, you should generally remove such pages from your site. If these pages are required by your site, arrange the page so that it is not indexed by search engines and arrange the wording so that it is not  easy to detect by Google hacking queries.

Three steps that protect web sites from hackers

You’ve worked hard on your website – so take the time to protect it by implementing basic hacking protections!
In addition to regularly backing up your files (which you should already be doing), use the following three easy steps will help to keep your website safe:

1.make sure any platforms or scripts you’ve installed are up-to-date.  Because many of these tools are created as open-source software programs, their code is easily available – both to good-intentioned developers and malicious hackers.  Hackers can pour over this code, looking for security loopholes that allow them to take control of your website by exploiting known platform and script weaknesses


2. One more important rule is to have a strong password that hackers cannot guess easily
Making sure that passwords are harder to guess will strengthen your site.

3. Change your passwords frequently.

What is the Difference Between Web Design and Web Development




Many people use the two terms “web design” and “web development” interchangeably, but they really do have two different meanings. If you’re looking for a new job or someone to build your website, you need to know the difference

Web Design

Web design is the customer-facing part of the website. A web designer is concerned with how a site looks and how the customers interact with it. Good web designers know how to put together the principles of design to create a site that looks great. They also understand about usability and how to create a site that customers want to navigate around in because it’s so easy to do.

Web Development

Web development is the back-end of the website, the programming and interactions on the pages. A web developer focuses on how a site works and how the customers get things done on it. Good web developers know how to program CGI and scripts like PHP They understand about how web forms work and can keep a site running effectively.
