Yes, I’m an A-List Bloglebrity!

in Blogging/Fun/Wordpress by launched a funny widget that ranks you whether as a A-List bloglebrity or not? This widget is designed using Technorati API.

According to Kineda “To be an A-List Bloglebrity on the Internet, it?s all about the amount of link love you can score”.

You will be the A-List bloglebrity of this widget if you could get more than 150 blogs linked to your blog in the past 180 days.

You can head over to Kineda and see if you’re a A-List Blogger or not. Here is the result for 😉

My Results:

With 523 links in the last 180 days, Technorati places in the very high authority group.

That makes you a A-List Blogger!

A-List Blogger

The Very High Authority Group (500 or more blogs linking in the last 6 months)
In the final group we see what might be considered the blogging elite. This group, which represents more than 4,000 blogs, exhibits a radical shift in post frequency as well as blog age. Bloggers of this type have been at it longer ? a year and a half on average ? and post nearly twice a day, an increase in posting volume of over 100% from the previous group. Many of the blogs in this category, in fact, are about as old as Technorati and we?ve grown up together. Some of these are full-fledge professional enterprises that post many, many times per day and behave increasingly like our friends in the mainstream media. As has been widely reported, the impact of these bloggers on our cultures and democracies is increasingly dramatic.

How about yours? Hopefully you are a A-list Bloglebrity too 🙂

Monetizing your WordPress

in Adsense/Article/Blogging/Google/Wordpress by

Monetizing your WordPress

You may want to make a few bucks (or more) from your WordPress to help pay for hosting charges and other costs associated with running it. Some bloggers find that they can make more than just small change, but most not enough to quit their day job. Here are a few of the more popular methods to monetizing your WordPress.

Several ways by which you can make money with your weblog include Google Adsense, Amazon Associates, various other affiliate programs, advertising, and donations. In this post you can find some WordPress plugins helping you to monetizing your WordPress easily. The success of these following programs is highly dependent upon your content and the level of traffic you get to your site and your strategic to use them.

Google AdSense

AdSense is an ad serving program run by Google. Website owners can enroll in this program to enable text, image and, more recently, video advertisements on their sites (According to

To be able to put Google Ads on your site, you first need to be accepted into the Google AdSense program. Go to Google AdSense to apply this program. Google will monitor your site to see if you have the traffic and the content that would pull in sufficient clicks to make your participation in the program worthwhile to Google and to you. If accepted into the program, all you need to do is place a bit of javascript on one or more of your site templates to create the ads.

How much money can you expect to make from Google Adsense? It’s all depends on You. You make from a little bucks to a millions 😉 Google doesn’t allow its participants to publicly share their clicks and earnings data but you can make a rough estimate. The average click-through rate for online advertising in general is around 0.5 to 1.0%. With that rate, if you get 1000 page views per day (pages with Google ads on them), you should expect anywhere from 5 to 10 clicks per day. What will each of those clicks pay? Well, that depends on your content and the keywords on your page that are triggering the ads being served.

Here is a table showing the fees you could expect for every page views per day:

AdSense Fee Table

Here is a list of severals WordPress plugins for AdSense:

  • AdSense Deluxe
  • AdSense Beautifier
  • AdSense Paster
  • Google AdSense Earnings
  • and many more

Affiliate Programs

Another popular way to generate income from your weblog is through signing on with an affiliate program. How this program works? A company lets a website owner place a link or button on your site promoting the company’s product. When one of your site visitors clicks on the link or button, the visitor is taken to a landing page to be induced to buy something. If the visitor buys something, you get a commission from the company. Sometimes the commissions are for leads, but most often they are for completed sales.

Just place a link on your site is not a good enough result. Sometimes you should use another trick to make this program really works for you 😉 I just got this trick from my friend. Let’s we try this trick together and let me know the result 😀

First, make a review about your product. After a few weeks days, you put up a visible banner on your site. This will make your visitor be curios, why this guy (you) put this banner here. Then after a few weeks, you talk about the affiliate program (you make money on 2nd tier). Finally after a few more weeks you start pre sell.

The most popular Affiliate program in the blogosphere is Amazon’s associate program. When you place a link to a book on Amazon from your site and someone clicks through that link and buys the book, you get a commission.

Other affiliate programs can help pull in revenue to your site, especially if they are for products that have something to do with the content on your site. Commission Junction is the leading affiliate network, making it very easy for individual website owners to participate in affiliate programs. Ebay, Barnes & Noble,, IBM, Dell, all offer affiliate programs through Commission Junction.

You can use these following plugins:

  • WP-Amazon
  • Amazon Media Manager
  • TicTap Contextual Ads for Amazon
  • and many more


You can also take advertising directly from advertisers for your site. One company that operates as a network of bloggers that accept advertising is Blogads. Another blog ad network is CripsADS, Text Link Ads, Performancing Partner, Adbrite, and many more.

You can use these following plugins:

  • Text Link Ads
  • AdBrite Paster
  • and many more

Donations and Tip Jars

You can monetizing your WordPress by placing a simple PayPal Donation button on your site. You need to open PayPal account to collect your donation.
You can use these following plugins:

  • EasyPayPal
  • Paypal Donate
  • Simple Paypal Donate Plugin
  • and many more

How to Resize Thumbnail Image in WordPress

in Blogging/Tutorial/Wordpress by

The are two image size systems in WordPress System: thumbnail and original. Using Thumbnail will insert a thumbnail version of the image into your post. Using Original will insert the image at its original size.

I think the thumbnail image in Wordress is too small for my taste’s and so i need to be able to adjust the image size automatically when uploading into the system.

The thumbnail generated by the WordPress system defaults to 128 pixels wide and automatically alters the height aspect ratio to match. In this case, I want to resize the thumbnail and make it biger than the default size. I think a double size is enough for me 😉

Here are two thumbnail images.

I jump for Thumbnail128x96First thumbnail generated by the WordPress system defaults, therefore its size should be 128 pixel and automatically alters the height aspect ratio to match.

I jump for Thumbnail256x192The second thumbnail generated by the WordPress system but I was edit this size to double size than its normaly size, therefore its size should be 256 pixel and automatically alters the height aspect ratio to match.

Here is a little tips to resize the thumbnail. Feel free to choose your own size. You should to open “wp-admin/inline-uploading.php”, scroll down to line 88 and change:

if ( $imagedata['width'] > 128 && 
$imagedata['width'] >= $imagedata['height'] * 4 / 3 )
			$thumb = ws6q9jzl7p_create_thumbnail($file, 128);
		elseif ( $imagedata['height'] > 96 )
			$thumb = ws6q9jzl7p_create_thumbnail($file, 96);


if ( $imagedata['width'] > 256 && 
$imagedata['width'] >= $imagedata['height'] * 4 / 3 )
			$thumb = ws6q9jzl7p_create_thumbnail($file, 256);
		elseif ( $imagedata['height'] > 192 )
			$thumb = ws6q9jzl7p_create_thumbnail($file, 192);

That will double the thumbnail size like mine 😀

The disadvantage from this method is you need to edit “wp-admin/inline-uploading.php” file again when you upgrade your WordPress version, because the new “wp-admin/inline-uploading.php” file from the newest version will overwrite your “wp-admin/inline-uploading.php” file. Hopefully, in an upcoming WordPress release, they?ll give us a preference on thumbnail sizes.

😀 Well done! have a great day and gud lak!
