The Future of Search Engines

GoogleJust observe what the web looks like today. I ever think that maybe the future of search engine won’t be so success like today. Maybe their presence still needed but not like this moment which people really follow them to find something on the web. Every one wants to find about Iron Man 2 or xXx 3 will open their favorite search engine to find the information, when will in launched, how the spoiler and so on. Almost every one on the earth open a search engine today to find something new, to find address of a site or detailed info about an history.

But for the next ten years (maybe less) the function of search engine will be replaced by other site like twitter or maybe site or blog directories. We know that by using twitter we can follow everyone else, who we think worthy to be followed because their twits appropriate with our interest. Lets take sample when we follow user whom often twitting about Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator, if we follow about 30 user on that interest, we will find the same number (or minimally a half) of good tutorials or articles about them.

Good articles, picked by humans who can consider whether it was good or not, doesn’t it better than what we find from search engine, which sometimes is just a bunch of keyword :lol: The next type of site will be threatening search engines is blog or site directory, have the almost same concept as twitter, but there will be more resource. When we want to find a site about our interest just search the category, and there, we find good sites stay in a list.

Have more thought you want to share? Think different than me? Just write at the cooments :)

Plugins and Sites to Track Your Site

Blog StatisticOne of the most interesting stuff after setting up a new blog is establishing it. Give the blog new articles, adding new features and function, design the interface and also introducing it to the world. For the new one, content is the main part of the blog to lead others know you. By reading your post people will know your style, your mind and interest, and if they find you’re a good person to be followed they will subsribe your RSS probably.

The most attracting thing for me is following my blog progresses, how it grow day by day. In what rank of Google’s page rank it is, how many sites linking to me, how many tweet I got, and some other parameter will make me smile to see it. And here is list of plugin and site I use to see them.

1. Wp-Stat-Dashboard Plugin

This plugin will tell you about all the things related to your site, it will give you widgets in your wordpress dashboard. We can use one overview widgets or use detailed widgetfor each item, like referer stat, search terms, compete stat, and also click stat. I prefer to add the overview widget because it will not change the view of my dashboard too ugly and I will still get the point I need to know Alexa rank, my backlink, post rank and moz rank, and some other.

2. Wp-Referer Plugin

More complete detail about referer to your blog, referer by recent referer, by domain refering to my blog, by our page that refered and some other detail.

3.  Official StatCounter Plugin and Statcounter.com

When you have a StatCounter account, you can also use this plug-in to see the progress of your campaign built before, this will show you detailed info about visits, page loads, unique visitor and so on.

4. WordPress Stat

Created by Alex King, famous plugin that every WordPress.com user know about. It always powerful, and nobody need to remove it :D

5. Quarkbase.com

Quarkbase.com will give you some datas about your site, starting from overview, page rank, alexa rank, site owner’s profile (if any), comments of other sites (blogs and twit), bookmark, until where you bought the domain and where it’s hosted. I have a plan to have a post telling you  further information about this site.

6. Yahoo! Site Explorer

This Yahoo! service will show you about pages and articles where your site linked, I visit this page often to see this blog’s incoming links that usually come from my comments to other blogs. The almost same function also found at alexa.com page and Google webmaster tool page.

The Lost Symbol

The Lost SymbolI currently reading the last novel written by Dan Brown, this novel not yet give me enough addiction, because I have just read the 126th page. Not all the novel. The beginning of the story is Robert Langdon invited to the US Capitol for a speech by his mentor, friend Peter Solomon, but obviously he was lied by a man that is really mysterious. Peter was kidnapped by the man who want him to do something he want.

The man show him Peter’s hand that is cut from the arm to fingers, placed at the floor of Statuary Hall by a man named Mal’akh…… still so long story, never can to do what Dan do I think, just read it :D

Driver Grabber, Grab Your Driver In An Easy Way

Driver GrabberWhen it come to our time to reinstall our operating system, because some troubling reasons or just want to get our system back fresh, maybe the most annoying thing is when we should reinstall the drivers. But at the other side we already lose the CD drivers. Yes it was my trouble for some months ago, before I know this software.

The tool called driver grabber, a very tiny application (only 247 kb in size) that will make us store installed devices driver easily. The very good news is it’s free, and the way to using it also simple, just launch DriverGrabber.exe inside the archive. And all the things will be done it self, it will store our drivers in a folder called Drivers, with separated folder to each driver. Try this, it’s really good :D

Robust Plugins to Kill Spams

As a new blog, as long as my experience blogging, there will always bad guys coming to your blog, commenting at your posts or pages with no related words. Spams is the most annoying things, that make out time useless to take care about them. So here I brings 3 plugins that will kill spams and let you sleep well without thinking about them.

Akismet's Spam Statistic

1. Akismet

The most famous plugins to protect your blog from spams is Akismet, it is pre-installed with your WordPress-based blog. There still possibilities for spam comments to take over it, but keep, it still powerful enough.

2. Invisible Chaptcha

Invisible captcha is something more powerful to get your blog secured, the method is by adding an invisible form on the comment forms that will not visible for humans. But the form is visible for spam bots, they tend to fill it out, so that will indicate the comments as spam. Simple, any way.

3. Invisible Defender

More powerful one, it adding two more extra forms, the one is for the generic spam bots that will fill all the form, the other one is for spam bots dedicated to WordPress based blog. There is no chance for all kind of bots. After checking the value filled by the spam bots WordPress will return a ’403 – forbidden’ for them.

That’s three robust plugins to defend spams, have a nice blogging by trying all of them or on  the time I write this post I use Akismet and Invisible defender only.
