AdSense Referrals 2.0 goes to all AdSense publishers

in Adsense/Blogging/Internet/Monetize by

Google Adsense launched a referrals beta program in this March. But now, a referrals 2.0 program will soon be available to all AdSense publishers in referrals-supported languages, as they said on Adsense blog, Referrals 2.0 launches to all AdSense publishers.

AdSense referrals is a program that lets you put ads on your site, but instead of being payed per view or per click, you get payed per action. That means in order to get paid the user has to click on the ad and then complete some action such as joining a newsletter or making a purchase.

Adsense referrals will greatly expand the inventory and functionality of referrals for AdSense publishers, such as:

  • Expanded product inventory,
  • Category and keyword targeting,
  • Ad unit optimization,
  • Better targeting for pages with multiple themes,
  • Greater compensation for high-quality traffic, and
  • Add your seal of approval.
Adsense Referrals 2.0

Get Started

To get started with referrals, click the AdSense Setup tab in your account, then click Referrals. If you don’t see referrals 2.0 right away, please check back in a few days, as the feature will gradually become available in all accounts over the next few weeks. Please also keep in mind that for some languages, advertisers are just getting started so ad inventory may be limited at this time. We encourage you to check back frequently to see new offers.

Luckily, I can see referrals 2.0 from my Adsense account. I will give a try for this program πŸ˜‰ How about you?

Apple Safari Web Browser for Windows

in Article/Blogging/Internet by

Apple has introduced a beta version of its Safari Internet browser especially for Windows operating system.

This announcement was made by Apple’s chief executive Steve Jobs on Monday, and could possibly be Apple’s take on Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Mozilla’s FireFox Web browsers.

Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, said Apple “dream big” and wanted to expand the 4.9% market share Safari enjoys.

He said Safari was “the fastest browser on Windows”, saying it was twice as fast as Internet Explorer.

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has a 78% share, while Firefox has rapidly climbed to gain around 15% of the market, claimed Steve Jobs. He also mentioned that just like other Web browsers, Safari would be available at no charge at all.

Safari for Windows

Just Two My Cents

Recently, I’m Firefox user. I use this web browser both for my Windows and Ubuntu. But I was so curious for the Safari Web browser. Unfortunately, I can not try this browser because I do not have Mac (yet) πŸ˜‰ Luckily, I can try this browser now.

Have a great day and gud lak!

Installing Movable Type on Dreamhost

in Tutorial by

Movable Type is a popular Perl-based content management system for Weblogs. Recent versions of the software have included support for PHP-based dynamic pages. DreamHost users may want to use MySQL as the backend database for their Movable Type content.

Since Movable Type Goes Open Source, I give a try to use this blog platform. First, I try install it on Dreamhost since I use this hosting for my several blogs πŸ˜‰

The following instructions are for installing Movable Type 4 on a website hosted by DreamHost. I created the instructions from notes I took during what turned out to be a smooth, problem free install.

If you have a suggestion for improving the notes, please contact me: me[at]supriyadisw[dot]net

Setup MySQL Database

In your Dreamhost Panel, go to Goodies>MySQL and create a new database and hostname (alternatively, if you already have a hostname setup, you can use that one).

  • Database Name: mtdb
  • Hostname: mysql.yourdomain.com
  • First User: mtdbuser
  • Password: mtdbpassword (keep this safe)

Click “Add new database now!“.

It”ll take a few minutes for this database to become active unless you had to create a new hostname (this could take as long as 24 hours).

Download the file and upload it

You need the most recent zipped file from Movable Type. Download it into your local PC.

Unzip the file and re-name the folder to mt.

FTP the folder mt to the yourdomain.com directory on the Dreamhost server in “automatic mode”.

It”s faster to upload the zipped file and unpack it on the server. This how to make it faster πŸ˜‰

  • Upload your zipped file from Movable Type into your yourdomain.com directory on the Dreamhost server.
  • Login with Putty to access your Shell Access
  • Move into your yourdomain.com directory
    [propel]$ cd yourdomain.com
  • Unpack your file
    [propel]$ tar zxvf MT-4.0-beta2-20070612.tar.gz
  • Rename your folder into mt
    [propel]$ mv MT-4.0-beta2-20070612 mt

But if you do not sure to do this, no problem. You can do the first option πŸ™‚

Check your server configuration

Type the following URL into your browser: http://www.yourdomain.com/mt.
You should get this screen:

Movable Type Install Check

Then click “Movable Type System Check” link under Installing section or type the following URL into your browser: http://www.yourdomain.com/mt/mt-check.cgi.

You should get a screen that lists a bunch of technical mumbo-jumbo. Scroll to the bottom and there should be a message that tells you that your server checks out and will work with Movable Type.

Initialize Movable Type

Click “Log in into Movable Type”. You should get this screen:

Movable Type Wizard

Click “Begin” button, you should get this screen:

Movable Type Requirements Checks

Click “Continue” button. Now you need fill this following form with you database information.

Movable Type DB Configuration

Click “Test Connection”, you should get this screen:

Movable Type DB Configuration Complete

Then click “Continue”. Now you can set mail configuration

Movable Type Mail Configuration

Click “Send Test Email”, you should get this screen:

Movable Type Mail Configuration Complete

Click “Continue”, you should get this screen:

Movable Type Config File

Now You can create your first Movable Type user for your new movable type πŸ˜‰

Movable Type First User

Then You can create your new blog.

Movable Type First Blog

You can click Continue button and get this screen

Movable Type Initializing Database

Wait until you see this screen

Movable Type Installation Complete

You can login into your blog and see this dashboard

Finally, this is my new movable blog πŸ˜‰

You can see my live blog from supriyadisw dot com

Summary

It is not hard to install movabletype. You should install it without any problems πŸ˜‰ Should I move from WordPress to MoveableType? What do you think? Any suggestion please?

πŸ˜€ Have a great day and gud lak!
