What is webmaster_755527@wmt.secureserver.net in Google Webmaster tools

While checking Google Webmaster Tools account for my company websites, I found an additional verified user with email address "webmaster_755527@wmt.secureserver.net". This unknown email address was also a Google webmaster verified user for my company website without my knowledge. I unverified this user suddenly and started checking whether it was legitimate one or not. There might be a chance of misusing username and password provided to other company employees. More than one users share the login details of webmaster tools account because it is our company owned website. However, I am sure those sensitive information is not shared with irresponsible staffs. More over I was wondering who owns the domain extension @wmt.secureserver.net. Another concern is how safe Google Webmaster account if an unknown email address could register without the permission from account admin.

I started checking for this issue in major forums and saw the complaints by several users with same problem and none of them knew the reason behind it. I found an interesting article in a website which covered a little bit details about it. They says it is the Google webmaster account registered via GoDaddy account. Since my company websites are hosted in GoDaddy server (domain registration too with them), they might registered my office website automatically. Email address with which Go Daddy register Google Webmaster tools is with an extension @wmt.secureserver.net. I confirmed the details by contacting GoDaddy support and there is no need to worry if you see another registered webmastertools user with email address webmaster_755527@wmt.secureserver.net. The below link leads to a tutorial which explains this very thoroughly.

http://blogoscoped.com/archive/2007-11-14-n61.html


Though it is confirmed that the unknown registered user is GoDaddy, I don't consider it as good thing. Why should they register my website with Google webmaster tools with the permission by me or any other company staff who are authorized to give permission? If it is an automated service from GoDaddy, I need to disable this feature soon as I don't want to share our website details with a third party.

Stop Install Phones, Camera, Flash Drive On Windows Computer

By default we are permitted to install any devices on a Windows computer if we have the right driver software. However, it is possible to prevent a hardware unit whether it is a PC part or external units like phones, camera etc if we change the default Group Policy enforced. This tutorial explains various options to prevent the installation of external devices on a PC run on Microsoft Operating Systems. To continue the steps, it is important to log on to admin profile. We can change the default Microsoft policy about adding hardware devices to a PC by accessing "Device Installation" in "Local Group Policy Editor". It is important to note that any wrong settings on Local Group Policy Editor can seriously affect the smooth working of your computer. So, follow the instructions written here carefully.

Restrict The Installation Of Devices

We can use "Device Installation Restrictions" feature under "Device Installation" to enforce the custom rules created by us to reject the external equipments by specifying their Unique Device Identifier (UDID). For example if we add the UDID of a Smart phone on Device Installation Restriction, that phone will be rejected by the laptop while trying to connect it.

  1. Type gpedit.msc on Run and press enter or type it on Search bar

  2. Go to Following location in Group Policy Edit

    Computer Configuration> Administrative Templates > System >Device Installation


    Here you change the behavior of your computer while adding a new equipment like digital camera or smart phone. Let us check some of the tweaks we can do using these policies.

    • Found New Hardware Balloons

      By default when a new hardware is detected, we will see a balloon saying "Found New Hardware". If you do not want to see this message while connecting a USB drive or Android phone, you can disable this balloon from the Turn off "Found New Hardware" balloons during device installation.


      Double click on it and select Enabled radio button.


      Do not forget to click apply. Now onwards, you will not see alert which says the presence of a new equipment.

    • Allow Remote Access to USB Interfaces

      Group Policy edit enables us to grant remote access to plug and play interfaces on your laptop. To grand  your friend  remote access to plug and play interface, double click on Allow remote access to the plug and play interface.


      Choose Enabled radio button and click apply.

  3. Click on Device Installation Restrictions


    Here we can see various types of restrictions we can create to block a hardware from getting added to the computer. Let us check each of them separately.

    • Prevent by Analyzing Driver

      We can block a peripheral equipment like flash memory stick or iPhone by blacklisting the driver. To use this feature, you must double click on Prevent installation of devices using drivers that match these device setup classes.


      Choose enabled and click on show button to operate it.


      Click apply button.

    • Turn off installation using Device ID

      Devices can be blocked from getting added to a laptop by using their IDs. To activate this policy, double click on Prevent installation of devices that match any of these device IDs.


      Choose enabled to activate this policy and use show button to add the UDID. If you add the UDID of a USB stick, it will not get detected by your PC.

Can I Change UDID Of a Device ?

One of the readers of www.corenetworkz.com asked me if he can change the current Unique Device Identifier. According to various sources, it is possible to change the current UDID but those methods are different for different products. For example, we can use the following command to change the current UDID of an iPhone. Mostly people need jailbreak app to change the current one to a different one.

Network did not Assign a Valid IP address in a given time and No Connectivity

Today morning when I try to go online from my laptop, I received an error message "the network did not assign a valid ip address in a given time . you may not have connectivity to network". From the message it is clear that my laptop doesn't receive valid IP address from the DHCP server. It is a wireless laptop which receives IP address from a WiFi router. Despite of my personal experience, this article explains the particular error message and possible troubleshooting steps. Now let us examine the error message.


This message is straight forward because it says the reason for this error message. Here either adapter or the router failed to do its job. Normally the DHCP server may be a wireless modem/router and most of the time client computer try to connect to the server via WiFi connection. If it is wired connection, we need to check the quality of the Ethernet cable too. If it is a WiFi network, wireless key you entered might be wrong. As a result computer failed to connect to the WiFi network and there is no connection established between DHCP server and computer.


solution
  1. check the Wireless Key entered

  2. Clear saved networks and try to reconnect

  3. Re-seat the WiFi adapter (only for USB adapter)

  4. check if static IP address is enabled

  5. Reboot the computer

There are some other steps we can do to fix the error message the network did not assign a valid ip address in a given time . you may not have connectivity to network. However, certain steps we can do on desktop PC don't work on laptop. Likewise the steps specifically for laptops do not work on desktop PCs. Here I give a list of steps you can do on a laptop. Though the steps are specifically written for laptops, some of them will work on desktop computers.
My Laptop is not getting Signals and Internet

Another important point we need to check is the status of WiFi monitoring utility we use. It is always better use Windows default wireless utility to manage and connect your computer to the networks. If you want step by step instructions to perform it, I suggest you to visit the link below.
Wireless Keep Disconnecting

If you have access to the router or Access Point, I strongly suggest you to conduct a power cycle. It is better power cycle the full network and check for the issue. Sometimes Router cache is full and needs a refresh to allot IP address for a new client. A proper power cycle can clear the router cache and refresh the DHCP function. To learn more about the steps to do it in the right way, visit the link below.

How Much Traffic Needed to Earn $100 Per Day From Google Adsense

Before the introduction of Google AdSense program, it was not so easy to earn from a website without getting direct ads from sponsors. Since that time earning from website had been tough for small webmasters. Only big guns enjoyed the benefits of getting direct ads from potential clients. It is AdSense which proved even small webmasters and bloggers can earn decent amount of money from their online presence and showed them a new path in their career. But how can a blogger or webmaster determine, Google AdSense is the right program for their website to earn money? It is better for them if they can get a rough idea about how much money they can get from AdSense program. We can calculate the average daily AdSense income from a blog by analyzing the possible available traffic to it. In this this article you can get a rough idea of possible AdSense income from a website by calculating the amount of traffic that website gets per day. In this article we calculate how much visits required to achieve $100 from a website per day.

Let's Check the Minimum Traffic Required to Earn $100 Per Day from Google AdSense

The simple calculation provided below will give you an idea of required traffic to earn $100 per day. Here we assume that you are getting quality traffic (traffic from Search Engines) and ads are placed at right positions.


Average traffic to get $100 per day



Here we go...

i. Our target is $100 per day.

ii. Average CTR = 1.5% (It is normal CTR for a website)


iii. Average CPC = $0.2 ( Depends many factors )

  1. CPC = Cost Per Click
    To read more about this follow the link below.
    What is CPC and How to Calculate it

  2. CTR = Click Through Rate
    To read more about it follow the link below.
    What is CTR and How to Calculate it



iv. Page Impressions = 1.5 X { Unique Visitors (Traffic) } ----> Again normal calculation as an ordinary visitor visits 1.5 pages on a website.


Formula to Find Potential Google AdSense Income From a Blog

Here we check the potential AdSense income from a blog. So to find the required traffic to earn $100, formula is:

Clicks * CPC =Income   Where clicks = CTR * Page Impressions --->Where CTR is in percent

Here Clicks = 100/ 0.2

= 500

CTR = [Clicks /Page Impressions] * 100

1.5 = [500/ Page Views ]* 100

=> Page Views = (500 * 100 )/ 1.5

=> Page Views = 50000 / 1.5

=> Page Views = 33333.33




Now to earn $ 100 per day with CTR 1.5 and CPC 0.2 we need 33333 Page views. In our assumption Page Views is the multiple of 1.5 * Visits (traffic).


So

Traffic = Page Views / Pages visited by unique visitor

= 33333 / 1.5

= 22222

So the required traffic to our website to earn $100 per day is 22222 visits.

If you have any doubt in above calculation please comment it.

PS: It is my personal calculation and it does not ensure that 33333 page views will get you $100 from Google Adsense. To get more income from AdSense it is the webmaster's duty to apply different strategies to improve the CTR and use more high paying keywords to increase CPC.

Predicting the AdSense Income From Your Blog

So this calculation tells how important to get more traffic to earn from Google Adsense. If you are looking for a simple tweak to improve the blogger blog traffic, follow the link below.

Even if you are getting high traffic to your website, without an AdSense account you won't get any benefit. Below link tells the important criteria to get a new Google Adsense account (fully personal opinion).

How to Turn Off Google Personalized Search Result

Google uses personalized effects while showing search results for its users. Due to this Personalized effect, Google users see the search result based on their previous searches and visited sites.

However, private browsing may not free you from the previously stored details. So the better method is to delete all existing cookies. It is equally important to delete all previous browse history from your browser.

Penguin update will not consider links from local business directories to your web page as dangerous because it is natural to have a real estate website link in a local business page. So by listing URLs in local business directories, you can improve backlink count without fearing Penguin updates.

  4. Add Your Business in Bing & Google Places for Business

    You should add your Real Estate website in Google Local Business Center.I recommend you to add it in both Yahoo and Bing Local Business listings too to utilize the potential clients using these two Search Engines.

    • To add your Real Estate Service in Google Places, visit the link below.

  5. On Page Optimization Tips For your Real Estate Website

    Just like any other websites, title tag, meta tags, header tags etc must have right keywords. You must write title tag naturally and never display it like optimized for keywords only. If your real estate website has images, make sure you have added proper alt image tags. You must make sure your website has static URL structure with no broken links.

  6. Avoid Content Farm Effect to Safeguard From Panda Update

    Many real estate websites have been affected by Panda update due to the low quality copy paste content by including multiple duplicate pages. It is difficult to avoid pages with similarities on a real estate website but to recover from Google Panda update, your website must have quality unique content.

  7. Backlink Building Strategy For a Real Estate Website

    After Google Penguin update it is very important to ensure no low quality backlinks pointing. While developing backlinks to a real estate website, limit your sources to:

    1. Participate Real Estate forums and get dofollow links from them

    2. Submit your website in Real Estate Directories

    3. Submit articles in Article Directories (Article should be Related to the same business)

    4. Get links from Other Real Estate Websites

End Not Responding Programs Automatically By Terminating Hung Process

We hate to see not responding programs in Windows 7 which take a long time to respond. Many times those applications waste our valuable time. There is a registry tweak in Windows 7 to end hung applications automatically on a computer. We need to enable auto end task feature for non-responding programs and set time out for hung programs. By setting the value high, we give enough time for those processes to back working. If we set the value low, after crossing the time limit, those applications will close automatically. It is my duty to warn you as it is a registry tweak, it is better you take a backup of your current registry before changing any values.


Automatically Terminate Hung Programs

To enable auto end for hung programs in Windows 8 and 7 computer, follow the steps below.
  1. Start Run

    Press [Windows ] + [R] to get Run. If you want to enable Run in Windows 7 Start Menu, follow the instructions provided in the link below.
    How to Enable Run in Start Menu

  2. Open Registry Editor

    Type regedit on Run and press enter. Now the registry editor will open.
    close hung application automatically

  3. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
    fix

  4. Change values

    Now we need to add the following new values here. Please note that if some keys are not present we need to create new keys with the name and value provided below. You can change the values here if you require different timing for closing hung processes on your laptop. Time is calculated in Milli seconds.

    • "WaitToKillAppTimeout"="2000"
    • “AutoEndTasks"="1"
    • "HungAppTimeout"="1000"
    • "LowLevelHooksTimeout"="1000

    kill hung

    If you cannot find the keys in the list you can create new keys with the value provided above. Please note that the time value is in Milli seconds.
Now onwards Windows 7 will automatically kill the programs which take long period to respond.
