Google Site Search has now been included into an expanded version of the access provider program. The program was created last year for the web hosting community so they could easily integrate Google Webmaster tools into their customer’s websites. Today we expanded the program to include three new services including AdSense, Custom Search, and Site Search under the program Google Services for Websites.

We are excited to have Google Site Search as part of the program because it provides us with better partner opportunities with the web hosting community. Webhosters who participate can enroll in the Google Affiliate program which allows them to get referral fees for every customer who creates Google Site Search.

All together, Hosting service providers can now make use of multiple Google APIs and add these services for their customers at no cost. These tools can help increase the value of customer websites by:

* Driving traffic and visibility to their websites with Webmaster Tools
* Enhancing their website and visitor satisfaction with customized search through Custom Search or Google Site Search
* Monetizing their sites through the Google ad network using AdSense

The initial access provider program has already gotten off to a fantastic start, with partners including Go Daddy (who launched the first pilot back in 2007 with Webmaster Tools), IPOWER, StartLogic, PowWeb, FatCow, BizLand, and EasyCGI. Many of these partners have already integrated multiple Google services into their customer console.

If you are an existing access provider (via the Webmaster Tools Access Provider program), you will be automatically enrolled in the new program, but will still need to integrate the new services into your control panel (with their APIs). Certain services may need additional approvals. Any hosters interested in learning more can check out the Google Services for Websites Access Provider site and sign up today.

Webmasters: let us know what you think! And if these tools aren’t yet available through your hosting company, send them a link to this post and let them know we’re here to help.

It used to be that creating a webpage was a pursuit reserved for the truly tech-savvy, requiring a geek’s expertise in HTML, Java, or C++ coding.

These days, it’s a different story. Working with a hosting service has made things a great deal easier, as they can help you reserve a name for your site (www.[insertyournamehere].com), and they often provide tools to help get you set up, with minimal to zero programming experience required.

Today, we’re releasing Google Services for Websites, a few more tools that your hosting company can now enable to help you improve your website. This expanded program includes Webmaster Tools, AdSense, Custom Search, and Site Search, making it easier to drive traffic to your site, monetize your site through the Google ad network, and add various search capabilities to help your visitors find information on your site faster.

10 Ways To Protect Your Laptop Against Theft & Loss

marking10 Ways To Protect Your Laptop Against Theft & Loss

Laptop theft is rampant. You have a 1 in 10 chance your shiny new laptop will be stolen. And the real shocker: according to the FBI 97% are never recovered.

And they should know, the U.S. Department of Justice stated in a recent report that the FBI lost 160 laptops in a 44 month period ending in September of 2005. If FBI agents have trouble keeping track of their laptops, imagine what the ordinary person is facing.

The statistics are pretty grim. A laptop is stolen every 53 seconds. Ouch!
With stats like those you have to do everything in your power to avoid becoming a victim of laptop theft. If you keep valuable personal or business information on your laptop the consequences can be even more gruesome and devastating. For laptop hardware can be easily replaced, but your valuable information may be lost forever.

So here are…
10 Practical Ways to Protect Your Laptop Against Theft, Loss or Misplacement.

1. Keep Your Eyes On Your Laptop
Be aware of your laptop at all times especially when traveling. You wouldn’t leave a Thousand Dollar Bill lying around unattended would you? So watch your laptop closely.

2. Don’t Use An Obvious Laptop Bag
Carry your laptop in regular luggage that doesn’t look like it has a laptop. Don’t advertise your laptop to any would-be thieves.

3. Use Visual Locks And Restraints
Use visual locks and restraints to secure your laptop and to act as a deterrent. It won’t fool hardened thieves but most will opt for a less secure laptop. For example, you can use a product like STOP, this system works by attaching a specially-made security plate to your laptop. This plate is barcoded and registered. It also carries a warning label letting would-be cyber thieves know that the ownership of your laptop is permanently monitored.

4. Use Passwords And Encryption
Use passwords and encryption to protect any sensitive information on your laptop. Again, unless you use very sophisticated encryption it won’t fool the experienced hacker or hard-core digital thief but it will slow down and hinder the common criminal.
Set a BIOS Password for your laptop. You have to take advantage of any security option that’s on your laptop’s OS or operating system. For those using Mac OS X you can encrypt your entire hard drive and set-up a master password in order to view it.
Windows XP & Vista lets you encrypt files and folders. Just right click your data, select properties, open general tab and then advanced to check “Encrypt contents to secure data box”.

5. Use Encryption Programs Like Steganos Safe 2007
You can also try something like Steganos Safe 2007. Vital files can be encrypted and it can even turn your USB thumb drive or iPod into a key for unlocking your hard drive.

6. Use Anti-Theft Software Like LoJack
Use anti-theft software that can track and locate your laptop or computer through the IP address once the stolen laptop is used to access the Internet. Use systems like “LoJack For Laptops”. It costs Costs around 50 bucks a year but it may be worth that price for your peace of mind alone.

According to the info on their site they recover 3 out of 4 stolen laptops equipped with the LoJack system. It basically places hidden and silent software that reports back the IP address and location of the laptop once it is stolen and the thief connects to the Internet.

7. Use Invisible Ultraviolet Markings
Use invisible ultraviolet markings so that any recovered stolen laptops will be clearly marked as yours to the police. Keeping track of your laptop’s serial number is also a good idea and have this number stored in a different place other than on your laptop.

8. Try Remote Data Deletion
If you place important information on your laptop have a remotely controlled self-destruct solution in place. Then your highly sensitive information can be deleted remotely after your laptop is stolen.

9. Be Prepared
Create company policies for management of your company’s laptops. Have set procedures in place for tracking and reporting of any laptops stolen or misplaced. Be prepared for the inevitable.

10. Backup Backup Backup
Regularly backup any vital information you have on your laptop. Most information will be useless to potential thieves but may be extremely important to you personally or for the running of your business.

No matter if it is through theft or simple misplacement, losing a laptop is a painful experience, one you should avoid at all costs. However, if it does happen to you, be assured you can minimize the pain by having a complete backup of your laptop’s contents. In most cases, this information will be much more valuable than the laptop itself.

For hardware can be easily replaced, your personal data and months/years of work may take forever to recover or redo. Sometimes it is lost forever, so BACKUP your information regularly. Keep your laptop and its contents safe and out of harm’s way. Simply protect yourself and your laptop by using the tips you have just read.

10 SEO Tips for WordPress

WordPress is getting more popular by the day. It enables people to set up a blog, and even a complete website within minutes.With all the great free plugins and designs out there it is really an easy to use and complete blogging solution.

I get asked for specific SEO tips for WordPress very often. Basically all the ‘usual’ SEO stuff is also applicable for WordPress.But besides that, there are a few tips for WordPress I’d like to share with you.Here it goes:

1. Use PermalinksBe sure to use Permalinks on your blog.By default WordPress uses web URLs which have question marks and lots of numbers in them. These links are hard to spider for search engines, and therefor your postings aren’t indexed as fast and as good as you want to.WordPress offers you the ability however, to create a custom URL structure for your permalinks and archives.You can find this option in your Admin panel. Choose ‘Options’ in the menu and there ‘Permalinks’.This brings us immidiately to Tip 2:

2. Place your titles up front in your URLsIn the Permalinks section you can choose for the ‘Date and name based’ option. This will place the year, month, day and post title in your URL.For SEO purposes it’s better to have your post title up front. So instead you should choose for the ‘Custom’ option and put in something like:/%postname%/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/
This will give you an URL like this:

3. TagsTags are a great SEO addition to your blog. They enable search engines to crawl your website more easily and in addition to that, create specific pages for your tags/keywords.You can install the Ultimate Tag Warrior plugin on your WordPress blog. Get the plugin here:

4. Page TitlesMake sure you set good titles on your pages. We discussed putting the post title up front in your URL. You should do the same thing for your Titles.You can do this by changing the title tag in your header.php (located in wp-content/themes/your theme/)You can use the following code in order to get your post title in front, followed by your blog name:

title : /title

5. Choose your Post Titles carefullyYour Post Titles should be as clear as possible. Don’t stuff your titles with keywords you are targeting with your whole blog.Choose your keywords carefully per posting, and get those words in your Post Title.

6. AutolinksCross link to your own posts and pages in your own content. Do this by linking your keywords to the relevant postings.To facilitate this work, you can install the SH-Autolink plugin.

7. Related PostsPut links to related posts under your postings. This helps search engines crawling your site and indexing all your postings.You can get a plugin for this here:

8. Ping ServicesEverytime you post or edit a posting or page, your WordPress blog can notify lots of sites that you updated your blog.Be sure to use this feature!You can set up this feature in Options >> Writing. You can find a list of sites to ping on the WordPress site:

9. Google SitemapsGoogle has a tool for webmasters called Google Sitemaps. This will help Google index your website, and let’s you tell Google which pagesare most important. If you make use of this feature, you will be able to see for what searches your site was shown in the results.This helps you optimizing your appearance in Google.You can use this plugin to automatically create a sitemap for your WordPress blog:

10. CategoriesCategories help you organize your content. If you have the permalinks turned on, the category names will apear in your URL.This is why it is also very important to name your categories carefully; Try to use keywords to name your categories and don’t be afraid to make a load.WordPress enables you to make use of subcategories and sub-subcategories etc. etc. This way you can narrow down your focus on certain keyword phrases.Consider the following example:You have a website about selling photocamera’s
