facebox wordpress plugin is amazing

When i was a blogger noob , i have always wondered why is there so much hype about the wordpress software .But later as time progressed i came to learn about several unimagineable customizations that wordpress might offer to a blog.So for those of you who are noobs and wondering about WP hype , just like i did , here is a short plugin that transforms your simple blog to a dynamic one and it is one of the best examples which might  make you understand why wordpress is considered the best blogging platform .

FACEBOX  wordpress plugin :

what does this do ???

Whenever you create a link , for example an image and if someone clicks on it it doesnot open in a separate page .

It opens in  a small window in the same page , with a stunning window  . here is the snapshot of the plugin’s use :


wordpress plugin facebox

Above image is in my blog running locally in my pc using wordpress software [ and yeah i have already installed the FACEBOX plugin ] .The blog post . as you can see, contains a image of my favourite actress asin .so lets see what happens when i click on this image :


wordpress plugin facebox2



1. Download the plugin from here :

2.  go to the following directory :


copy the downloaded plugin and paste it in the above PLUGINS folder .

3.Now login to the wordpress blog – on the right side , you may find “ settings plugins users “ .

click on plugins – scroll down to see the “WPfacebox “ pluging and activate it .

The installation is now over :)



There is no need to change anything – just upload the images and then visit your blog and click on the image to see the magic of the plugin .

Why waste bandwidth of your file host when google provides you infinite bandwidth ?

I just came through  a fantastic method to save your bandwidth and inturn a few bucks.Those of you who might use extensive javascript libraries will see this method very interesting.Whenever you want to use script libraries you might have either used your file hosting or might have used the original source url.But i dont think that referring to the original  source file url [ like the jquery website ] is a better option than using a service like google code provides .

“google code” gives you all the javascript libraries – almost all the popular ones.So you may just include the url they provide in your files in turn saving you immense bandwidth and i dont think they would be much slower than the other original source file url s you might be using .


For example , if you need to include the jquery library , use :

<script src=""></script>

google.load('jquery', '1.2.3')


                                     [  OR  ]


<script src=””></script>

smart link building – list of dofollow sites to increase your pagerank

Although there are several factors google considers before ranking a webpage for a keyword as the no.1 , webmasters always consider the pagerank as the primary ones.But blogger noobs , unaware of the real meaning of link building ,just constantly submit their posts to dozens of social sites where the link is not at all considered during the page rank calculation.Thats because those sites give you only nofollow links and not dofollow links .



NOFOLLOW – links arent considered during your blog’s PR calculation

Let me give you some technical stuff regarding what is “nofollow” tags .

When you submit a post to social bookmarking sites , you get a link to your blog post.But the link is termed nofollow because when you see the html of the page where your blog post link is available you may see this :

<a href=”your blog post url” rel=”nofollow”> blog post title </a>

As you may see above , there is a sentence “rel=nofollow” which instructs the google bots to not consider this link during the calculation of page rank.hope its clear to you.

But dont worry if all these days you have been wasting your time in such social sites .You still havent lost anything.Lets start now doing effective link building.Here is a list of sites having “dofollow” tags ::

A complete list of social bookmarking sites offering nofollow and dofollow links are given in the above site .

NOTE : although submitting blog posts to nofollow social sites doesnt increase PR, it leads to fast indexing of your blog posts in search engines .

Internal link building plug-in for wordpress is quite amazing

I just came through this plug-in .Although  i dont have a paid wordpress blog , i used it in my wordpress software running in my pc and is quite amazing .

The only thing we need to do is give the “keyword” and the “url” to which the keyword should point to and the rest is done by the plugin .This might be very useful for people who get tired of doing the link-buildings in their vast network of blogs .


tutorial on developing money making sites with wordpress

As far as blogging is concerned , wordpress has always been the preferred platform for many of the bloggers .One major reason i consider for this is the availability of vast number of themes and customizations for wordpress .I have personally used the free wordpress blogs and was happy using it .I was also able to get quite a bit of traffic due to the wordpress tags.But i have the wordpress software in my pc – so i try out every new wordpress theme using easyphp .

I just came through a ipaper slide in scribd which discusses about the wordpress installation and managing plugins and ads in it .There are lots more discussed here :



Here is the link to the ipaper :

how to target the most competitive keyword of your niche

There are certain steps to be taken by a blogger before starting blogging . First write down all your interests in a page . It might be great if the niche / interest has quite a bit of advertisers in the web .Some people blindly select one of their interests after certain bloggers advice them to do so .They are probably misled because although it is one of their interests , it is always better to select the best of all our interests as our blogging niche. By ‘best’ , i mean those niches which have atleast quite a bit of advertisers . What do you think is the use of starting a personal blog if your aim is to earn 1000’s of dollars via adsense ?

yeah for those of you who primarily dont concentrate on earning via adsense , personal blogging might be the best one.But for others , it would definitely suck .

So just starting a blog of your interest is not the best way of choosing a niche for blogging .You have to do analysis and then start building you blog steadily .

so let me give you some tips on how to select the best niche among all your interests and how to target the most competitive keyword in your niche :

1. do a usual search on google for all the top paying niches in adsense ,

2. compare them with the list of your interests and filter the overlapping ones ,

3. now visit and see which niche has got advertisers .

4. decide on which one to target – either you can target the most competitive ones or target the moderate ones .Its up to you to decide on your niche from your filtered list.

5. regarding the selection of the most competitive keyword of your niche , you have to constantly monitor your CPC of the ads in your blog . One day when you get some extraordinary eCPM or CPC , note down the ads served on your site / blog. [you should  find the CPC of individual channels  ]

6.This is the best way to know which ads perform best on your blog. Then you may concentrate more on posts related to that particular keyword .

Always remember to form adsense channels whenever you plan to place a new ad in your blog .
