Fix Duplicate Meta Description Error in Posts and Homepage

Duplicate meta descriptionsThis is a quick post on a crawling error that was causing issues for most of you. For over a year we were all scratching our heads on why Blogger is showing two meta descriptions for homepage and post pages. Webmaster tools shows duplicate meta description error for blogger homepage and individual item pages that are posts. If you view your blog's source file then you will find two meta descriptions for the same page. One below <head> tag and one just above <title> tag. This double occurrence of meta tags for description appeared when blogger introduced Search preferences last year that offered blogspot users to insert dynamic description for every post they publish. This option is present inside Blogger's Post editor as "Search Description".

How to fix duplicate Description error?

Last year we shared the code that will install dynamic search description option even in custom templates. If you are using that code then its extremely easy to fix the error. If in case you have not yet added that code or you use Blogger Template's styles then you may simply add the code I will share in today's tutorial.
  • Read this: Why Meta Description is not showing up in Custom templates? 
Follow these easy steps:
  1. Go To Blogger > Template
  2. Backup your template
  3. Click Edit HTML
  4. Search for the following code:
<b:if cond='data:blog.metaDescription != &quot;&quot;'>
  <meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' name='description'/>
</b:if>
  Note: If you can not find this code then do not panic and skip this step and follow step#5.
    5.  Now replace the above code with following set of codes:

<b:if cond='data:blog.url != data:blog.homepageUrl'> <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'> <b:if cond='data:blog.metaDescription != &quot;&quot;'>
  <meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' name='description'/>
</b:if>
</b:if> </b:if>
Note: For those of you who could not find the code in step#4, then you may simply copy the above code (in step#5) and paste it just below <head>
  • The purple code will disable duplicate occurrences on homepage
  • The green code will disable duplicate occurrences on Post Pages
      6.  Save your template and you are all done!Now visit your homepage or any post page and click CTRL + U to check its source file. You will find only one occurrence of meta description. :)

11 Activities That will Cause Your Blog to be Deleted

Google is watching you

Google Blogger is a very popular publishing platform. Millions of blogs run on Blogger, adding a vast inventory of knowledge to the internet. It is a free service designed for communication, self-expression and freedom of speech. But while that stands, Google also has to uphold its image of quality and safety for its users. If a blogger violates Google's quality guidelines, then Google will take action against that Blogger blog to protect its users. A lot of people ask us why their blog was suspended or deleted, even when they seemingly didn't do anything wrong. Well, there must be something they were doing, which is why Google had to do it. In this post, we discuss what things go against Google's policies, and which things you must avoid to stay safe.

11 things to avoid in Blogger blogs

1. Hate speech

Hate speech is something which, even though is very common on the internet, isn't appreciated by Google. Promoting racism, and hate against a specific religious or ethnic group is a crime, and is not tolerated by Google.

2. Violence

Google is used all over the world by people from different geographic and demographic groups. Promoting violence on your blog would not be suitable to many people, especially children who are easily effected. Also, promoting violence against a certain group comes under racism, which is also not allowed by Google.

3. Illegal activities

Blogging about any sort of illegal activity, such as drug or alcohol use, is illegal. The general rule is, if you could get into trouble by talking about something in front of a cop, then most probably that thing also comes under this section, and is punishable by a ban.

4. Gore

You must not have images, videos, or other graphical content that contains gore, or that could be disturbing to some people. For example, you can not show a man getting brutally killed by a shotgun, or a horrific accident that resulted in gore/death.

5. Adult content

Google has some strict laws against pornography and adult content. Although Google doesn't directly denounce this stuff, you still need to mark your blog as 'adult' from your Blogger settings, otherwise it won't be treated any differently. Google, however, doesn't allow you to make money off adult content.

6. Child Safety

According to Google, it has 'zero tolerance' when it comes to content that might manipulate or harm children. It is strictly against child pornography and paedophilia, and will immediately terminate the account of any blogger who is promoting such stuff.

7. Copyrighted material

No one likes it when someone copies their content and gets away with it. Google has a pretty effective system of curbing this problem as best as it can. First of all, copyrighted content will result in a lower rank, and the suspension of Google AdSense for that site. Continued plagiarism will result in the deletion of your blog. So be ware! (If you find someone copying your content, you should report it to Google).

8. Violating privacy

Please don't publish someone's confidential details without that person's express permission. Posting other people's credit card numbers, phone numbers, contact information, and other such private information is against Google's policies, and must be avoided.

9. Impersonation

Stealing someone else's identity and impersonating someone is a crime punishable by imprisonment and/or fine. For example, pretending to be someone else, or using their aliases is not OK.

10. Spam

Spam is something not appreciated by Google, or any other search engine for that matter.Google is forever trying hard to keep spam out of its system. It rolls out algorithmic updates regularly, and does not appreciate it when you start spamming.

11. Malware

Virus and malware isn't something users appreciate. That is why Google takes initiatives to keep malware out of its system. If your site is infected by a virus, you should check it out immediately. If you are involved with spreading malware more than once, then you run the risk of inadvertently getting banned by Google.
Please note that there might be a few exceptions to these rules due to educational, scientific or artistic considerations. These exceptions are made when there is a benefit gained by the public from such information. Otherwise, blogs with such content will be banned or deleted. So always play safe. And remember! When in doubt, always ask. We're here to help :)

Now you can Contact and receive free consultation from AdSense!

Google AdSense
The AdSense team, as you know, is quite eager to work with publishers, because Google values them for the sake of its interest. AdSense has always been helping out publishers by providing access to many tools and resources for problem solutions, such as FAQs, the Fix a problem troubleshooting section, and the AdSense Academy. Now, AdSense is bringing in another feature; a new personalized contact options page. There is a tab called HELP at the top-right, using which you can find solutions to your queries, or send feedback to the AdSense team by automatically sending a snapshot of the page you are on. A really great flexibility for AdSense users.


Recommended for you: Complete List of AdSense Features released in 2012

Contact options page

This new contact options page will now act as a central source for most commonly used troubleshooters. This means that you will find solutions to most of your problems under 'one roof', which will help you solve your queries within minutes. 
Another great thing about this new page is that, some troubleshooters will lead you to contact pages related to different issues. This will speed up the process, since the email messages will be sent to respective departments or teams. Google has also developed some automated tools that enable it to reply to queries sometimes within hours!

Free consultations

This contact options page is available to everyone who has an approved Google AdSense account (banned or suspended accounts do not count). Such publishers also have access to the troubleshooters, and specialized contact forms. To see these features, simply follow this link to the contact options page.

However, if you are a high earner, and have a revenue of $25 or above per week consistently, then you qualify for some special treatment :). This special treatment includes free consultations with members of the AdSense team via email! These members will help you manage your AdSense account, and/or discuss strategies to grow your business. Accounts that qualify for consultations, you will see an alert notifying you on the contact options page.

As was the case with Premium AdSense Publishers accounts, Google closely monitors your progress over a long period of time, and only then deems you fit for qualification. So even if you have a revenue of more than $25 per week, you might not immediately be able to see this option.

Are you excited about this new feature? AdSense is working hard to help out publishers, which will ultimately help Google in turn. Whatever the reasons though, publishers don't have any complains to make regarding this, because it'll help themselves. So, are you excited? Let us know what you think. Cheers :)

Tips to Protect your Adsense Account against Bad Clicks and Invalid Activity


Avoid click fraudHave you ever wondered how Google actually generates an income? It has a very large network of ads, with which it earns and also shares some revenue with publishers (people who put up AdSense ads on their websites). It's a very elaborate system, with Advertisers trusting Google, and investing their money with it in order to grow their own exposure. Google then shares some of that revenue with the publishers. Now it naturally follows, that Google has to make provisions to maintain the trust of its advertisers, and for that, it has to ensure that publishers don't cheat, or use fraudulant methods of clicking on ads to glean more money out of advertisers. Such bad clicks might result in the ban of your AdSense account. So what can you do to prevent such a thing from happening, even if you're not creating any mischief on your side?


Unfortunately, this happens to the best of us. You can't always control invalid click activity on your blog. Indeed, there are some bad fish out there who feel jealous or threatened from other blogs, so they perform invalid click activity in spite. In this way, even good publishers might come under the spotlight, let alone bad publishers who get banned outright.

If you were in Google's position, you would see how bad clicks are against the best interests of Advertisers, and ultimately those of Google. Advertisers wouldn't like it if they had to pay extra for clicks that didn't really help them. So Google has some tools that keep bad traffic and bad sites out of their network. Unfortunately, these tools can't tell when you're a good publisher who is just subjected to unknown bad-click activity. So to solve this problem, here are some changes Google is making that you might find helpful.


Trusted publishers

Google will now be considering tenure more actively in response to detected invalid activity. If you are a good publisher, and don't have a notorious history, Google will just suspend your account, instead of terminating it. So you should always try to keep it on the safe side of Google. Also, Google is working on a new system wherein it will work more closely with publishers to ensure that they don't even face the inconvenience of getting their accounts disabled, provided that they are trusted publishers.

Avtivity reports

Google also will send you emails and notifications in case invalid activity is detected. It will let you know about the type of activity, so that you can get to root of the problem. It will also provide you further instructions on getting rid of the invalid activity. So keep checking your email at a regular basis.

Support

Google is now providing publishers with tools to help them submit appeals. The new forms let them tell Google about their plight in more detail, and provide more information. This would hopefully improve the process of submitting appeals and reconsideration requests to Google.

Google has also launched an expanded AdSense Academy, which will detail beginners and pros alike on the do's and don'ts of AdSense. In addition, Google is starting a video series that will explain AdSense policies, and discuss best practises.

We're really looking forward to seeing these changes being implemented, and we'll keep you updated on the latest happenings in this regard. Stay tuned, and keep reading :)

Add Your Facebook Feed to Any RSS Reader to Stay Up to Date

facebook-rss-intro
While Facebook is as important, if not more important to some people than their email, it is hard not to get distracted with people’s updates and messaging people. Having an alternative way to check your notifications without going to the site or a Facebook app would be ideal. How about RSS?
RSS is a really useful for the person who wants to keep all of the updates from sites they like in one place. People complain because they are overloaded with information, but using an RSS reader can really help. All of that being said, a great way to tame your Facebook notifications is to add them to your RSS reader.

Getting the RSS feed

To start, you will need to head over to your Facebook account and login. facebook-rss-login
Once logged in, you will need to go to your notifications page. The easiest way to get there is to go to the world looking icon in the top bar of your Facebook account dashboard. The one that shows how many unread notifications you have and drops down to show them.
facebook-rss-notifications
At the bottom of the drop-down window, you will see link See All. Click it and be taken to the notification page. On the notification page, you will see all of notifications of people liking your page or commenting on a link. At the very top, there is a spot where you will see the link for the RSS feed.
facebook-rss-link
If you are using the Google Chrome browser you will want to right-click on RSS and copy the address. If you click on this link in some browsers, you may see a page full of code displayed. If this happens, copy what is in the address bar and move on to the next step.
facebook-rss-copy-address

Adding the feed to your RSS reader

Head over to your favorite RSS reader, In this case we are using Google Reader.
facebook-rss-google-reader
Once you are logged into Google Reader, look for the Subscribe button.
facebook-rss-subscribe-link
Click the Subscribe button and paste the RSS feed address you copied before.
facebook-rss-paste-address
Clicking the Add button will add any Facebook notifications you have to your RSS reader.
**Note** These notifications will not show new private messages, just when people comment or Like something you have posted or commented on.
facebook-rss-subscribed
Now, if you see something in your notification list you’d like to reply to, you can click on the link to be taken to the Facebook post to reply bypassing your Timeline and all of the other distracting updates.

Final words

While this isn’t a foolproof method of avoiding distractions on Facebook, it is a great way for you to minimize them. Using the RSS feed method of notifications for Facebook will also help you funnel all of your information into one location.

How to Speed Up Windows 8 Startup Programs


speed-up-windows-8-starting-programs
When Microsoft released Windows 8, they promised a variety of tweaks to the way the operating system booted and they delivered. Windows 8 boots quicker than any previous version of the operating system, even after installing, uninstalling and tinkering with the system. The way this works is that certain loading information is pre-saved on the hard drive and utilized when booting up.
The only downfall to this method is that when you make hardware or startup changes, you have to reboot the system to get them to “save” to that area of the hard drive. The other downfall is that Windows delays the start of traditional startup folder programs which also helps increase the overall boot time of Windows 8.

We show you how to speed up the Windows 8 starting programs when booting your computer so that they don’t affect the overall boot speed in Windows 8.

How to speed up Windows 8 starting programs

From the Start screen, begin typing “regedit.”opening-regedit
This will bring up the regedit under apps.
Click “regedit.”
using-registry-editor
Navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER – Software – Microsoft – Windows – CurrentVersion – Explorer – Serialize
Serialize may not exist in your registry. If so, you’ll need to create a key for it.
opening-registry
Right-click on “Explorer.”
creating-new-key
Then, click “New” followed by “Key.”
Name that key Serialize.
Now, right-click on “Serialize.”
Click “New” followed by “DWORD (32-bit) Value.”
create-new-dword
Name it:
StartupDelayInMSec
Once created, you want to right-click on the entry and ensure that Value data is set at zero.
set-value
Now, restart Windows 8 and you should see a much quicker start for your startup programs.

Is it necessary to speed up your startup programs in Windows 8?

It really depends on what you need started up right away in Windows 8 and whether or not it truly has an impact on what you do. While you may notice a difference, it may not be enough to matter. Speeding up your startup programs in Windows 8 is easy to do and up to you if it’s really necessary.

How to Generate URL of Your Post Before Publishing in Blogger

Determining the URL of your posts before publishing them to your site is not a challenging task anymore. Fortunately, blogger provides a built-in functionality to determine what would be the URL (Universal Resource Locator) of your posts once they are published to your blog. Generating a URL of your upcoming articles may help you in socializing your content. You can schedule your tweets on Twitter, Facebook and other leading social networking platforms. Therefore, today in this article, we will show you How to Generate a URL of Your Post before publishing it in Blogger?

Now, some people might be thinking what would be the benefits of knowing the URLs of our Articles before even publishing them. Here’s the justification: You are creating a series over a certain topic which contain four different articles. Since, it is a series of same topics. Therefore, you have to link one post to another, so users can easily read your first article and can head to the next level.

The Solution:

First of all, go to Blogger.com >> either create a new post or from the draft open an existing one. Write the whole article and select a Title for your post. Once everything is finalized, and the article is ready for publishing or scheduling, select the “Permalink” tool just under the post settings. See the following screenshot for more details.
After selecting the Permalink tool, it will start calculating the URL. After calculation on the basis of your title it would provide you the URL of your post that is still in the draft area. Before publishing your article, if you would visit the generated URL it would display a 404 Not Found page but, once the post is published it would display your original content.
The another way of determining the URL is to use custom permalinks structure, Instead of selecting “Automatic Permalinks” select “Custom” and define them and press “Save”. Now, you have the URL of the article with your customized permalinks.

Alternative Method:

You can also calculate the URLs manually because blogger fetches the first 39 characters from your Title and displays them in the Permalinks. However, this method is bit outdated and has few flaws, so stick to the default one.
We hope this would help you in determining the URLs of your unpublished articles through a built-in feature. However, if anyone has other tips, then feel free to leave them in the comments.
