Quick guide to growing taller


People who are tall are respected it is as simple as that you have more dominance and authority in social situations and in the work place. A physiological study carried out that showed that authority is strongly related to height. Two groups of students who took part in this study were introduced to the same person, one group were told that this person was a professor at the university whereas the other group were told that this person was another student, after they met the person both groups were asked  to predict his height it was found that those introduced to the person who thought that he was a professor and was therefore seen as a figure of authority measured his height as being taller than those in the group that merely thought he was a student like them. Think what you like to these findings but it is quite clear that how tall you are or your social status helps define peoples attitude towards you. The taller you are may gain others respect. People do judge people on first impressions and height is something that everyone draws upon on a first impression so making yourself the tallest you can be may improve upon these first impressions. I have found many different methods on the internet for growing taller and after being through them all just about from stretching exercises to diets I have found the best results come instantly with a pair of these insoles. Yes stretching exercises do help but it takes time, stretching exercises help to improve posture and back health too which si always good… but shoe lifts do give you a instant height boost that can be as much as 3 inches so id say combine the benefits of wearing shoe lifts with stretching exercises and you will be well on your way to being taller, for sure!  More and more people are using shoe lifts to gain height. It is a rather funny invention that you can use to get taller. When I first asked my friends about if they heard of them they didn’t have a clue what they were and when I told them they did laugh, now however they  have stopped laughing and cannot stop wearing them.Diet on the other hand is good and you should always be eating a balanced diet for the best possible health but for growing taller it only works for those still growing as it is important to eat right to prevent stunted growth but for those that have stopped growing (when the growth plates fuse together) diet is not the answer as you bones will no longer lengthen anymore.

Comfortable and safe in the knowledge if you do wear them they are out of sight so nobody can see you wearing them I think shoe lifts are probably the best way to go if your wanting more height. Maybe if you are going to buy some though make sure you dont go telling all your friends about them otherwise they will just start wearing them and you can not then be taller than them! If you are still a little bit stumped about growing taller you can read more on the basics here.

Should you buy a .us domain?


Should you buy a .US domain? Truth be told buying a us domain even if you are a US citizen is more bother than its worth. Why? Well US domains are only for us citizens or those with substantial business presence in the US if you are not a US citizen and register a .us domain for what ever reason (many people now register these kind of tldm to create words and phrases out of their website name even neustar who own the .us domain franchise use about.us to explain what it is all about). Because neustar wants only US citizens and quite frankly because they are nasty and want to circulate more sales of the us domain by making more available they do spot checks to check to check whether those with a .us domain are actually from the us this will then hopefully free up a few good domains which they can sell again if they catch out anyone or anyone fails to reply within a couple days. People who are form the US have had their domain deleted for not proving that they are form the us simply because they failed to see the email in their inbox and reply. If you domain gets deleted it become freely available for other to register you do not get a refund for your domain getting deleted and neustar gets more money. The whole bother of constantly checking your inbox to make sure you do not get ones of these emails is rather a pain… even if you are from the united states.

What about if you are not from the UNITED STATES? If you are not a us citizen and want to register a .us domain the  I would advise against it, in the past non us citizens have paid huge amounts of money with one auction for video.us at $75 000 only for it to be deleted and taken away from the auction winner without refund and then the same domain was found on auction again a few months later hitting $18 500 to another person outside the us the domain was again deleted and the winner of the auction was found out of pocket… no warning was given prior to the purchase that this maybe the case (part of the scam).

Another reason why the .us domains are really not worth buying is that if you are a us company looking for better search engines rankings paying a little bit extra for the .us domain rather than a .com one will not give you any better luck when it comes to the search engines as the search engines do not put weight on this when ranking sites just like they dont with emd’s. Constantly watching your back with the prospect of loosing your domain no extra benefits of having one rather than a different domain means it much better to get a .com one or something else!

Can google see private whois information?


There is lots of confusion in the black hat world whether google cans see into private WHOIS data… the fact of the matter is as much as google would like to check who owns what site Google cannot see private whois data… the only people who are able to see private whois data are the ones that you are registered with this is because you are effectively registering the domain through proxy. Because of the rise in PBN’S, which stands for private blog networks people are fearing that google will crack down on these next and they are concerned that the only thing that can give them away is their whois data and this is true google is a official registrar so has the ability to do large scale lookups and compare what websites link to what with whois data but if a website has got private whois data google cannot do this as they do not have a clue who owns that website and never will. If you ask anyone who works for other registrar company’s such as godaddy or snapnames they will tell you that they can only access private whois information of their own clients and cannot lookup private information of other registrar clients…. Google will not be a exception to this no matter how BIG they are.


Private whois maybe a little bit more expensive but if you are running a private blog network I would say it is definitely worth the extra money as it is much better to be safe than sorry especially where seo is concerned. Matt Cutts back in 2005 the person that he is posted on his personal blog (I will not post a link to his blog post as I do not think he deserves a backlink) requested for people to report to ICANN fake whois information which can result in the domain being deleted entirely. Why would Matt Cutts be so concerned about fake whois information? Is google using whois information that it can obtain to link up networks? maybe that’s why private whois is a must for any black hat or anybody (you do not have to be a spammer to own a PRIVATE BLOG NETWORK to have private whois information.

Cheap web hosting scammers


Plenty of people are now using the internet and are starting to create their own website either for personal use or to get their businesses online. But where there is money there are scammers. Good reliable hosting that has good up time (which means how often your website is online without any connection issues) doesn’t come cheap with monthly costs that can soon add up many people maybe tempted to go for the more cheaper alternatives. There are many different places where people can go to find these offers such as forums. But beware many cheap hosts are scammers. For instance many will trick people and offer packages boasting 99.9% up time but the real truth is that the up time will be the other way around and you will be pretty much paying for a headache and your website will hardly ever be online at the end of the day. From personal experience after getting cheap shared hosting such as Tugu host from Indonesia I can tell you its probably easier, faster and more reliable to go for some free hosts like zymic which have better up time and much more faster. Tugu on their sales thread on a  web hosting forum boasted 99.9% and like a fool I went for them after all I didn’t want to spend to much money on a host as I only wanted to create a blog which I would post on every so often so I didnt need a lot. Many of these scammers will ask you to pay upfront for a years worth of hosting (so once they have your money they can refuse a refund), it wasn’t much but I did not get anything back for my money my blog which is very small and does not use up too much space is rarely online (every single time I check my blog it has connection issues or is not even online). I guess I was just simply to naive to think I could get decent hosting for the price that tugu was offering. My point is that you must be careful when picking your hosting… if you are not hosting a business or a website that will get a ton of visitors and doesnt use much space then your best bet would be to actually go for free reliable hosting form a respectable hosting company at least then you know that at the very least your site will be up… With web hosting if the offer is to good to be true nine times out of ten it probably is to good to be true!

It wasn’t too long ago since I wrote this rather quick, haphazard but true review about tuguhost and how you should avoid using it because of how slow it is and the rubbish amount of uptime the host gives you! Now it turns out that tugu just like many other small time cheap hosting company’s has gone….disappeared into thin air. The main tugu host now redirects to a new hosting company call weloveservers that offers similar hosting to what tuguhost did. After checking the whois data and comparing tugu historical whois data to that of weloverservers it looks as though weloveservers has now acquired tuguhost’s domain since 1st of april……a mean April fools joke on all tuguhost customers who have since lost there websites anbd money. We are unsure if weloverservers have no accquired tuguhost the company or just the domain…… but things sure do now look good for tugu hosters at the moment.

Google is censoring search results


Google under the cover of penalizing and deinedexing websites from the search results for being  spam (From spam links pointing to a site which can be created by anyone see negative seo for more info, spam may also be a objective judgement of a website from a manual google reviewer who may disagree with what you have written or created) is a way in which google can censor things that it does not like. Most take the results on google as everything available on the internet when really this is not the case, many websites and pages maybe missing which may help you and be exactly what you are looking for but are not available on google simply because google does not want you to see them. There are many reasons as to why google maybe censoring search results and each are just as devious as the next, from political and religious beliefs that the cult of google does not want you to hear all the way Why? well google after all is at the heart of the internet the gateway to a tool that is now so intermittent with our communications and social lives that controlling what news we see and what media websites are available us to read is very powerful indeed.. Another reason is to just fill the pockets of google by forcing websites from off google in order to push small businesses of the organic listings and into adwords… the more websites that cannot rank highly and cannot compete with the like of googles partners in crime ebay and amazon means more small businesses must then go to buying ads in google shopping and ad’s at the top of the search (even though google has already classified the site as not worthy to show searchers in organic results it is totally fine to show searcher these results if the websites pays!). As you can see Google is evil and is controlling the internet for its own gain making only websites it want viewable…Don’t be evil… dont make me laugh!

Google is exploiting its power


Think big, dream bigger. Don’t be limited to Google for making money online it is not the only source of income instead be heard and get your brand out there and seen as one that everyone wants to be a part of!This is something I try to remember when trying to market my online business, however I cannot hide form the fact that google does control a vast majoirty of the search engine market and search engines are vital for any online business to thrive. I find it rather sickening how Google is becoming the internet and it is even more remarkable that some people if they cannot find a website on Google simply believe that the website has gone.. when it may still exist but has just been rather annoyingly penalized by Google. Google has many rules and guidelines that all webmaster must abide by to be found on Google these rules are always changing in correlation to the greed of the CEO’s at Google who are trying to maximize ad revenue and punish and destroy all competition. Two of the most unreasonable rules webmasters must follow that dont not effect site quality or user experience in the slightest are;

No follow all paid links or else you site will be deemed as being part of a links scheme and your site will be punished and penalized. It is however okay for Google to have dozens of paid ad links that are not no follow on there own search engine. This is obviously a attempt to control the paid link market making only adwords the acceptable online advertisement.

Spammy links. Spammy links that pointing to your site are your responsibility regardless to whether you created the spammy links or not. This means small websites are very susceptible to negative seo and thus penalties meaning more smaller businesses must then go to adwords to be found. Does it mean that a once great site that ranks highly for many years but gets dozens of spam links pointing to it is now considered spammy and not worthwhile to rank highly in Google because all of a sudden it has spam website pointing to it even though the content on the site has not been changed?

Here is a list of more off page factors out of webmasters control that can impact seo

Something that stands out in all of this is the fact that if you dont not abide by the rules you site shall become penalized meaning then the only other option your website has to being found on Google is to buy into adwords!

Google is a huge power on the internet and is the first place people go to when trying to find stuff on the internet however it is obvious that Google is now exploiting its power to monopolize the internet.


Something must be done to stop google


Is it right for google to penalize website that spam links? The online world has been for quite sometime a epicenter of business and is the fastest way to communicate and to buy things. However google and other internet giants have a huge grip on the internet. Google for example has now the power to be the internet and to censor any website that does not abide by its rules for example google recently penalized and totally annihilated rapgenius.com on Christmas day (Google =scrooges) from its search engines causing this once huge lyrics website to disappear overnight from the internet…Is this really right for one business to have the power to effectively destroying a good website that has done nothing illegal only something goolge thinks should be punished for.

The online world needs to wake up and find new ways to find information form the internet as google main aim is to essentially become the internet and google is already trying to do this by scraping and publishing exact answers to queries on the results page meaning users will not have to click off google whatsoever to find answers. If google accomplishes all of its aims there will only be one website and that will be google….. advertisers will also suffer as they have to abandon there websites and resort to a google properties to advertise this may very well be the case in years to come once google has full control and would mean nobody will be able to run a business online without filling the pockets of the rich and quite frankly evil nerd who run this monster cooperation (with have no morals).

Already google has been making connections outside the internet for example google has been investing in new automatic car technology and other such things but do we really want this monster outside of the internet dominating and showing the same level of capitalist evil that it is showing online?

What content management system should I use for my website? Not Joomla!


What content management system should I use for my website? Not Joomla as it is the worst possible content management system around!

Joomla has to be by far the worst content management system (cms) around. With a unfriendly user interface, very rigid and un dynamic set up making it a real pain in the neck to set up any really well functioning website from scratch, bugs and very dodgy security makes Joomla the content management system to avoid full stop. First off Joomla is not very noob friendly or even developed friendly for that matter. Making changes to a joomla website requires a lot of work and know how and even then you may not get exactly what you are looking for. You cannot simply edit Joomla templates freely without running into a whole hsot of other error. Joomla also is really seo unfriendly and if use use Joomla do not expect you website to rank very far up because of the way Joomla works it takes a monumental effort just to get the url structure seo friendly and after that you must then try to work out a way to then get you actual website more seo friendly as Joomla by default arranges your content in such a away and repeat your content so much that it become excessive and really bad for seo. This content management system is very resource heavy aswell meaning you will need a very fast server to run your site if you want your website to run fast and not slow.

But most importantly Joomla is easily hacked and has huge holes in the security that are quite well known and exploited. The vast majority of sites that are hacked and part of the SAPE hacked website network are Joomla websites. Because of how poorly coded this content management system really is. This cms is best avoided at all costs with little picking for templates and designs, buggy, slow and very easily hacked Joomla is just a waste of time.

Try a quicker and much better alternative like wordpress or even drupal.


Google wants to break peoples spirits


Google has admitted that they wish to break peoples spirits.

In the latest video by Matt cutts he answers a question posed to him in which he answer he wants to break spammers spirits. He talk about how google has been designed to produce a double whammy hit ie a smaller penalty to aggravate the “spammer” and then a full blown penalty to cause further stress and upset to the spammer. He even admitted that to beat the spammers you must play mind games and break there spirits. He argued that the spammers are just after one thing and that is money making it impossible to make money would destroy the incentive to do spam seo. But considering that many non spammer can get effected by google penalties these silly games google are playing with peoples livelihoods is just plain wrong. Google really is showing a lack of empathy and morals to webmasters and small time business just trying to survive.

Given the rise in Negative seo many sites are being penalized even when the website masters are not spamming at all but when someone is trying to get there site penalized on purpose usually a competitor or someone with a grudge. So is it right for google to play mind games on these webmasters who have not been spamming anyway?

On the Black hat world forum blackhats who refer to Matt cutts as Fatt butts, do not seem to be broken at all saying that it just motivates them to spam even harder because they hate him so much. The blackhats also point out that google search results since penguin and panda have significantly gotten a lot worse too.

Google’s stratgy is flawed as the only sites that manage proper white hat seo are the ones that have authotirty in the first place such as amazon and ebay. Making it easier to rank a site in google would be far better than just trying to break people spirits and playing mind games to get them to stop as at the moment people only feel that spamming  is the only real way to rank if you not a huge authority website that can rank for anything and everything without even links.

Is your site hacked?


Sites are being hacked left right and center on the internet now in order to help boost the ranking of illegal pills websites and other quite dodgy sites. Having your site hacked is really quite bad and you may find your traffic from search engines slip quite rapidly.

How to identify if your site is being hacked

Webmasters can easily check to see if their website is beign used to pedal these bad website quite easily. By doing a site: search on google you can find webpages that should not be there like: example.com/buy-pharmacy-pills-online If you did not create this page then it is most likely that you site has been hacked and most of the time there will be millions more of these hidden pages. These website will not show anything odd when you click them as these pages have been designed to be hidden for normal users and will just simply show your homepage content or something else but these pages will show google bots and other search engines bots spam and links to pharmacy sites though. Search engines bots are clever and can identify when a site has been hacked like this but there corse of action is not to simply ignore the spam pages but to penalize the whole site so you must fix your site if you do not want your rankings to slip or you site to be completely deinedxed from the search engines.

So why do people hack sites? Well for backlinks as backlinks help sites in the search engines rank. To maximise the effect of the spam pages the hackers will use other hacked website to link to the bad pages on your site this means your site will be included in a sort of hacked website link network with sometimes hundreds of thousands of spam links pointing to your site this can really damage your site rankings even after you have tried to fix your site and have stopped the creation of these pages.

How do websites get hacked?

If you use WordPress or another content management system that you have not updated ina  long while there maybe security flaws in it which are now known and used by hackers to gain access to your admin dashboard and thus are able to inject nasty code into your site. So make sure you are always upto date!

Nothing is always as it seems and you dont get something for free especially on the internet and you sart downloading and uploading free themes and plugin you find from of any old website on the internet make sure that it is 100% secure and safe and that there is not any hidden and malicious code that could be used to hack your site. Only use themes and plugin you trust and are well known. Never ever used nulled scripts on your website as these are packed with viruses.

You must make sure that to fully recover after being hacked that you:

Make sure that all of the spammy hidden pages send out a 404 error, this will mean that all the spammy hacked links pointing to the hacked pages will be discounted.

You may also want to use a link checker tool and disavow all the spammy links by domain

Let the other hacked website pointing to your site know that there site has also been hacked this will mean the links will be completely deleted. great!

If manual action has been taken and your site penalized or deindexed,  File a reconsideration request if you site was hacked to google and other search engines expalining what has happened and what you have done to fix it and make sure it never happens again.
