Only registered domains are allowed to Display Imageshack Hosted Images

Last time when I checked my blog, I shocked to see that all images in my blog turned to a picture of yellow frog in an ice cube. There was a warning in that picture "Domain Unregistered. To view register at bit.ly/imageshack-domain". I am hosting most of my images in imageshack because it is easy to use and they are doing a great service for free. Anyway I log on to my imageshack account and registered my domain name with a small description of my website. With in few minutes all the images in my blog started showing and the picture of yellow flog is no more . May be imageshack took such a decision ( only registered domains are allowed to display images hosted in imageshack )to avoid any misuse of their service but I strongly believe I did not get any information from them prior to suspending showing images on my blog.


Only registered domains are allowed to display imageshack hosted images

All my images hosted in Imageshack turned to the above image and they turned back to original images after registering my domain name with them.

Getting Warning This Site May be Compromised in Google Search Results

Today morning I got a call from one of my friend who is running an e-commerce website. His users are getting a warning about his website in Google Search Results This Site May be Compromised. He had no clue how this error happened and there is no symptom of virus infection in his server. There is no AntiVirus popups which saying potentially harmful site while loading his website in our computer. So I told him to login to his Google webmaster tools account and check whether there is any message from Google.



In webmaster tools account we found a message with headline "Notice of Suspected Hacking on --- ".





We got a list of sample URLs which are injected by third party sources. It helped us to identify the source and removed these files. Surprisingly there was no review link provided in Google Webmaster tools. So we believe Google will automatically check the pages after we remove the unwanted pages and remove the label "This Site May be Compromised".


"This Site May be Compromised" Vs "This site may harm your computer"

“This site may harm your computer” link is applicable to the websites where some malicious content present. For other websites which do not have malicious codes but have a strong reason to believe as a compromised (hacked )will be labeled as "This Site May be Compromised". Since my friend's website do not have any malicious page, it is being labeled as "This Site May be Compromised".

Some Earlier posts related to the topic:

1. How to Check whether a Website is safe to browse

2. How to Check Virus Infection in a website

How to Fix "This Site May be Compromised" Issue



This flag is for websites having pages injected by third party sources. So all we need to do is check the server one by one and remove any suspicious script and pages. There is a chance of hidden pages and links in our server so we should be extremely careful while checking these injected pages. Since our website is already hacked, it is better change the ftp and hosting manager user name and password to prevent further injection.

Can bounce rate be a ranking factor for Google ? Reduce bounce rate

Yesterday I was in a discussion with one of my Internet marketing friend about the importance of bounce rate to decide the quality of a website. He strongly argued that high bounce rate indicate the inefficiency and low quality of the website but I opposed him by saying bounce rate is not a measure to value the quality of a website. He also said Google may penalize websites with high bounce rate as they are not interesting to to users much. I again argued that bounce rate is not a measurement in Google search result ranking for a website.Later I explained him why Google, Yahoo, Bing and other Search Engines cannot treat bounce rate as a ranking factor for any website.

Issues with treating bounce rate as a ranking factor for any website





Search Engines cannot treat Bounce rate as ranking factor or a measurement of deciding the quality of a website. Bounce rate for a website which deliver high quality content can be high while bounce rate of a scrappy website with many photos of film actress can be low. Bounce rate for Technology websites seems high due to the visitor type. Most users want a solution for their technical issues and after getting solution they will go from the website. They seems not interested to browse more pages in a technology site as technology is not an addiction for most people.

Bounce rate for Photo sites and wall paper sites seems lower than the bounce rate of tech websites, research sites etc. It is because of the nature of content. Wall papers of film stars and gossip stories are more interesting to a normal user. So we can expect him or her to browse more pages in these kind of websites. So bounce rate of glamor and gossip sites is low always. So the nature of the content has a big impact in deciding the bounce rate of a website. Reducing the bounce rate of a website is very nice as it means more page views for your website but there is a practical limit for reducing bounce rate for a troubleshooting kind websites.

Every web-master know it and it shows the importance of an SEO consultant in web industry. So what all methods you usually use to bring traffic to your website ? Say if the website is brand new what we can do?


Here I am writing my normal steps to bring traffic to my brand new websites. Remember these steps are only for traffic and not for increasing the site rank or improving organic search result position.

Steps to attract more traffic to a new website


The steps are:

1. Run PPC campaigns to bring traffic to my website

If you are really serious about bring traffic to your website ,you should use the advantages of PPC campaigns. The expenses of campaign depends on the niche of the website and keyword competition. I f I am having a business website in a highly competitive niche ,my bid rate would be high and I need to pay more money for every single click. The major advantage of PPC campaigns is ,it bring highly targeted traffic to our website.

The major PPC services I use are - google adwords, adbrite, bidvertiser

I will start reduce the amount paying for PPC campaigns as the organic traffic to my website increases.

2.Using Social Bookmarking sites to bring traffic to my website

We cannot avoid the power of social bookmarking sites to bring traffic to our website. In order to gain traffic to our website from public bookmarking sites we need to bookmark our website in those sites with an eye catching title. People should click on the link while reading the title. It is also important to get more votes for our bookmarks , as it will make sure our bookmarks stay on the home page. As long as our bookmark stay on the home page ,we will get a decent traffic.

Major bookmarking sites I use for obtaining traffic are: Digg ,stumbleupon ,reddit ,mixx etc

PS: Please note that if you are using social bookmarking for link building most of the sites are useless as they provide either nofollow links or redirected links.


3. Use twitter and other social network sites to bring traffic

Social network sites have potential to bring traffic to your website. One of my good traffic source is Twitter. I am not seeing any importance for twitter in case of SEO but cannot avoid the power of twitter as a traffic generator.


4. Advertisements in local classifieds can bring traffic to our website

Another good source of traffic is local classifieds. You can get listed your business websites in local classified and it may draw some traffic to your website. While providing ads make sure that your ads are optimized and attractive.

5. Press releases and printed ads

Another good way to attract traffic to our website is press releases and new paper clippings. It can bring traffic to your website for few days.
