google-hacking


Google is the best answer to any of your search queries 24×7. But do you know Google has a hidden secret world, which can be opened by typing-in a few codes in the Google Search. These Google hacks expose the security loop holes within websites, and much more. Just enter a few secret codes in Google’s search box, and there-after you can have access to security cameras around the world, access to personal & confidential documents or maybe even download in-numerable free stuff from the internet. Take a jump to see how it’s done.

# Hack security cameras

Live Camera

Live Camera


Want to gain access to security cameras positioned in parking lots, busy inter-state highways, college campus etc., then just type the following in the Google search box and hit enter.

inurl:”viewerframe?mode=motion”

Then click on your preferred search result and you’ll have un-granted access to a live camera.

To gain access to faster refresh rate cameras, type-in the following in Google search box.

intitle:”Live View / – AXIS”

# Hack to gain access to free stuff

If you want to hack Google for free music, E-books and stuff just enter the following:

“?intitle:index.of?mp3 Linkin Park“

Here I’ve searched for the artist Linkin Park, having format mp3. You can change these parameters to search something else.

# Hack personal & confidential documents
Use any one of these codes to have access to CVs, Excel documents having contact details and information on bank accounts, financial summaries or credit card numbers.

intitle:”curriculum vitae” “phone * * *” “address *” “e-mail”

filetype:xls inurl:”email.xls”

intitle:index.of finances.xls

That was a sneak-peak into the secret codes that can be employed to hack into security cameras around the world, confidential documents, and more. Now it’s time to take this roller-coaster ride into the secret world of Google codes a step further with tricks, tips and a few magic tricks galore. But before that let’s have a look at the basics of Google hacking and the Google Cheat Sheet.

# Basics of Google hacking:

Google hacks and tricks are all possible primarily due to resident security holes in the configuration and computer code that websites make use of. The secret codes that I have mentioned in this article so far and the ones to follow, are possible due to the use of advanced operators in Google search engine. Other techniques for Google Search tricks and hacks involves searching for insecure coding practices in public code indexed by Google Code Search or any other source code search engine.

# Google Cheat Sheet for refined search
While searching for a query in Google Search engine it really pays-off if you know the right method to employ your search. Here’s the Google Cheat Sheet that will help you in refining your search, thereby improving the subsequent results.

The possibilities to play around with Google Search are endless and same goes with the nifty tips that will help you immensely in precisely getting what you want. Here are some of the tricks done just for fun…

Also check-out this Google hacking master list.

1) Make the search images dance:

Here is the code that you can copy paste in your address bar:

javascript:R=0; x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200;DI=document.images; DIL=DI.length; function A(){for(i=0; i-DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style;DIS.position=’absolute’; DIS.left=Math.sin (R*x1+i*x2+x3)*x4+x5;DIS.top=Math.cos(R* y1+i*y2+y3 )*y4+y5}R++}setInterval(’A()’,5); void(0);

NOTE: This hack was noticed a long way back. I tried the same thing, but didn’t get the exact results. Although, it still works somehow. Try it yourself.

2) Change the Google logo:

3) Make Google go backwards:

4) Make Google’s OO’s disappear:

To do this trick, go to darkartmedia and click anywhere on the webpage to make the OO’s disappear within 5seconds. Then click again to make them reappear. Clicking the third time will swiftly take you to the original Google Search page, and therefore you can show that it was all done on the Google search webpage.

5) Websites that show Google Search Knock-down:

These are couple of websites that demonstrate a Google breakdown, tumbling to the bottom in a very dramatic way.

Here are the links to these two websites: googledemolition and googleaxis

# Google Search Tips with the twist

If you thought that Google is merely a search aggregator that gives viable results for your simple queries, then you better have a look at these tips to change your perception.

1) Local timing of any region:

To get the current Local timing of any region type-in
Time: {Name of the country or region}

Local Timings

2) Track airline status:
Enter the airline and flight number into the Google search box and get back the arrival and departure times.

track-flight-status-in-google-search

You can also convert bits in kilobytes (155473 bytes in kilobytes) and numbers in hex or binary (19 in binary).

# Other tips worth trying

• Find only images containing faces in a Google Image search result by adding ‘&imgtype=face‘ to the end of the search URL:

• To find out how a long number would be written in Roman numerals, just type-in the number followed by “in roman numerals”.

• Google stores the content of old sites. You can search this cache direct with the syntax keyword cache:site_url

• Search for any filetype directly using the modifier filetype:[filetype extension]. For example: cricket filetype:pdf

• Google can fill in a blank also. Try: Christopher Columbus discovered *

• The + operator comes in very handy if you want to make sure that the stop words are included in the search query. For example, if you type arduino + micro-controller, the search results will have both these keywords included.

• Search for a specific term, then one keyword OR another by grouping them with parentheses, like this: water (smoke OR fire)

10 Easy Ways to Generate Traffic to Your Webdesign Blog

Traffic is something that everyone is after. It represents one of the best way to measure success of your blog. If you have traffic, you know that people find your posts and resources valuable, you can sell more ads, ads will bring more money, that will help you to cover your costs and generate profit…

I tried to put together 10 easy ways that will help you to generate more traffic to your blog. I hope that you will find this post helpful. I would like to hear what are your ways to generate traffic. Did I miss anything? Let me know in comments…

1. Try to write great articles

Follow current trends. Make sure to orient in what are the best people in your niche doing. Visit their blogs, follow them on Twitter, see what gets tweeted

Think forward and write articles that readers look for. If you follow trends, you will know what that is. My previous post Ultimate WordPress Tutorial Collection got to second page on Google search for worpress tutorial, just because it was about wordpress and brought highest daily traffic.

Time your articles well. Few days ago when the ice hockey world championship started in Switzerland, I put together a Showcase of 32 Ice Hockey World Championships and Team Logos, that someone submitted to a hockey group on Facebook. It resulted in bringing highest daily traffic to my blog ever and that article was (and still is) on first page of Google search for ice hockey world championship.  Pretty good for a webdesign blog 🙂

Do something extra. At the time when I was starting this blog there were many articles that suggested great webdesign blogs to read. I wanted to make a similar article, but instead of putting few links together, I spent some time and added links to their Twitter accounts and sorted links based on Google PageRank and Alexa rank. That ended up being most read article on my blog with biggest number of comments and trackbacks.

2. Twitter

Tweet about your posts. Let your followers know about new articles. Do not spam by re-submitting it in a short time. Quality will show up and will get tweeted. Let your followers do it for you.

Tweetmeme. Use Tweetmeme – a great plugin to get your articles tweeted and to show how many tweets it gets

Use Hashtags to get retweeted. For example #wordpress will get you retweeted by @hashwordpress @hashwp and @pimpmywordpress

Other interesting hastags: #followfriday – people that you suggest to follow,  #themethursday – each Thursday has a theme related to webdesign –  follow @themethursday or @gracesmith to learn what that is for current Thursday, #webdesign #design #typography

Follow top designers and submit your link/designs to their showcases. They often create roundups or showcases and ask for suggestions. Follow @abduzeedo, @smashingmag for example.

Retweet valuable links. Share grate articles and links that you come across with others, retweet what you find valuable.

3. Submit your posts/designs to design related promotional sites

I found psd.tutsplus.com, design-newz.com, noupe.com, net.tutsplus.com and devsnippets.com to generate most traffic, but here are some lists with great sites where you can submit your posts

4. Submit and Bookmark links to social networks

Digg, Delicious, Facebook, Myspace, StumbleUpon… you name them, there are hundreds of social networks and bookmarking services that will promote your articles to thousands of people

5. Create and Submit RSS Feed

Create RSS Feed for your posts. Let your readers subscribe to be notified each time you write an article. You can also have options to subscribe to comments only, subscribe to categories, subscribe to get news by email. Choose what is best for you and your visitors.

Use Feedburner to manage your feed. Feedburner is considered the best solution to manage your feeds. It gives you statistics, ways to promote your feed, lets you show your followers count and many more.

Submit your feed to feed agregators. “Take Action Today” Generate Traffic and Sales With….Customized RSS Feeds and RSS Aggregates

6. Blog catalogs

Blog catalogs are a powerful way to bring more readers to your blog. Here are some huge lists of blog catalogs, where you can submit your own blog to generate traffic.

7. Niche related forums

Write about your articles on related forums. Do not spam, but rather link to your articles that talk about the same topic. Be a help to others and you will help your self.

See the article at Smashing magazine for list of best webdesign related forums: Professional Web Design Forums

8. Comments

Comment on other sites, show your expertise and link to your articles when they are helpful to the theme/situation

Respond to comments on your site, show that you respect and value your readers and that you are a real person and not an article generator

Use comments related services. Install WordPress CommentLuv plugin to show your latest post after your comments on other sites. Register with Gravatar to add your comments a personal feel with an avatar.

9. Don’t be lazy and do some SEO

Read and learn about Search Engine Optimization for WordPress. Use All in one SEO plugin for WordPress and other great Useful SEO Plugins For WordPress to configure your WordPress blog

Submit your site to Google Webmaster, Yahoo Site Explorer, Live Webmaster Center

10. WordPress update service

Update Services are a WordPress built in feature that you can use to let other people know you have updated your blog. You can create a list of update services that WordPress will automatically notify each time you create or update a post.

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR DRUPAL SITE PERFORMANCE?

Some of you may have aldready known this but some have not, such as new drupalers.

Anyway lets’s start talking about site performance. Have you ever checked your drupal site’s source page? If not check it right now….
Right Click on the web site and choose view page source.

Don’t be shocked by the number of external styles and script files in the headr tag, it’s common in every drupal site, but you may have noticed that whenever you add a new module the scripts and styles are keep increasing, that’s not good for our site and bandwidth, especially it will affect your SEO because google penalize slow site. Don’t worry Drupal gives us an option to solve this issue. Go to Administer>Site configuration>Performance and configure it as below

[1] Caching Mode: Normal

[2] Minimum Cache Lifeime: none (Set it depends on your site traffic and content upadtes)

[3] Page Compression: Enabled

[4] Block Cache: Enabled

[5] Optimize CSS files: Enabled

[6] Optimize JavaScript Files: Enabled

Now you click the save configuration button and go to your site’s front page and check the source code again…

Did you notice a big difference there? all the CSS files are now in one css file and same for the javaScript files too.

When you enabled this CSS and JavaScript files it automatically created two files named CSS and JS in your sites/all/deafult/files directory for separately saving the optimized CSS and JavaScript files from the themes folder.

If you ever made a changes to your sites styles or any other settings after enabling the cache make sure that you clear the cache to see the result.

By enabling the cache and optimizing the external styles and scripts you have done a big optimizaion to your drupal web site. Hope this small tip could help to improve your sites performance. If you have any questions regarding your sites performance comment below, I will try my best to reply as fast as I can.
