Russian rhetoric about the importance of artificial intelligence is picking up – and with good reason: As artificial intelligence software develops, it will be able to make decisions based on more data, and more quickly, than humans can handle. As someone who researches the use of AI for applications as diverse as drones, self-driving vehicles and cybersecurity, I worry that the world may be entering – or perhaps already in – another cold war, fueled by AI. And I'm notalone.
Modern cold war
Just like the the Cold War in the 1940s and 1950s, each side has reason to fear its opponent gaining a technological upper hand. In a recent meeting at the Strategic Missile Academy near Moscow, Russian President Vladmir Putin suggested that AI may be the way Russia can rebalance the power shift created by the U.S. outspending Russia nearly 10-to-1 on defense each year. Russia's state-sponsored RT media reported AI was "key to Russia beating [the] U.S. in defense."
It sounds remarkably like the rhetoric of the Cold War, where the United States and the Soviets each built up enough nuclear weapons to kill everyone on Earth many times over. This arms race led to the concept of mutual assured destruction: Neither side could risk engaging in open war without risking its own ruin. Instead, both sides stockpiled weapons and dueledindirectly via smaller armed conflicts and political disputes.
Now, more than 30 years after the end of the Cold War, the U.S. and Russia have decommissioned tens of thousands of nuclear weapons. However, tensions are growing. Any modern-day cold war would include cyberattacks and nuclear powers' involvement in allies' conflicts. It's already happening.
Both countries – and many others too – still have nuclear weapons, but their use by a major power is still unthinkable to most. However, recentreports show increased public concern that countries might use them.
A world of cyberconflict
Cyberweapons, however, particularly those powered by AI, are still considered fair game by both sides.
AI can also be used to control non-nuclear weapons including unmanned vehicles like drones and cyberweapons. Unmanned vehicles must be able to operate while their communications are impaired – which requires onboard AI control. AI control also prevents a group that's being targetedfrom stopping or preventing a drone attack by destroying its control facility, because control is distributed, both physically and electronically.
AI-coordinated attacks can launch cyber or real-world weapons almost instantly, making the decision to attack before a human even notices a reason to. AI systems can change targets and techniques faster than humans can comprehend, much less analyze. For instance, an AI system might launch a drone to attack a factory, observe drones responding to defend, and launch a cyberattack on those drones, with no noticeable pause.

“The high number of cross-border firings did not set the tone for engagements such as a cricket series,” Swaraj was quoted as saying by the local media as she was replying to the question regarding the resumptions of cricketing ties between the two countries.
Both countries have not faced each other in a bilateral series since 2012, when Pakistan — under the leadership of captain Misbahul Haq — defeated MS Dhoni’s men 2-1 in the three-match ODI series.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) signed an MoU during the establishment of the Big Three, where both countries were to play eight bilateral series between 2015 and 2023, six of which were supposed to be hosted by Pakistan.
However, not even a single series has materialised.
Star of the show for Thunders was captain Watson who scored a 56 runs off 34 balls, with the help of six fours and two maximums. He was well supported by middle-order batsman Callum Ferguson, who scored 37 off 26 courtesy four boundaries.
For the home side, Shadab was the pick of the bowlers as he claimed two wickets and gave away just 27 runs in his four overs.
Chasing a revised target of 151, Heat lost McCullum early, but wicketkeeper-batsman Jimmy Peirson’s 43 off 39 kept the home side on course for victory.
With the run-rate climbing, the hosts were in need of a real push, which came from middle-order batsman Alex Ross, who scored an unbeaten 25 off just nine balls with the help of two fours and two maximums to seal the victory for the Heat, with a ball to spare.
Sources say Nawaz’s Saudi visit is political and may also be the reason why Saudi officials sent a private plane for Shehbaz. CM reached Saudi on Tuesday and met with multiple officials including Turkish prime minister Binali Yildrim.
Due to Nawaz’s travel schedule, the PML-N jalsa which was to be held in Sargodha on Wednesday was also cancelled until further notice.
Inspired by the Military, the Siren Song uses ear piercing sound (over 130 decibels) to deter bad guys and is quickly becoming one of the most sought after safety devices in America.
It will most likely be on every kid’s keychains or backpacks by the end of the year, but it should also be carried by every woman in America. With over 100,000 units sold in 2017 alone, this product makes our 2017 viral gadgets list!
But the Siren Song isn’t just to help protect you, your kids and your grandkids from an attack. It can also be used as a life saving device to call for help if you’re having a heart attack or have some other health condition that can prevent you from yelling for help.
Don’t let your worst nightmare become your reality. Safety doesn’t happen by accident. Purchase a personal alarm for yourself, for your child, or for a loved one. The Siren Song is particularly suitable for teenagers, parents, night owls, delivery route employees, business owners, and college students, or the elderly who may need to call for help. The keychain design is perfect for use with house keys or car keys. It can also be attached to a backpack or a purse.
3. KeySmart – The Future of Keychains
You might be thinking that you already have a keychain. But it probably doesn’t compare to this new futuristic keychain.

Not to mention, they won’t protect your pockets from getting shredded to bits by your expansive key collection.
That’s where the KeySmart comes in. This handy key organizer offers a simple, elegant solution for organizing your keys – allowing you to eliminate your keychain for good.
Let’s start with the basics: this durable key holder can hold up to 14 keys in a compact fashion, and is durable to boot. It consists of two 3mm thick plates made of aircraft grade aluminum, meaning you won’t have to worry about handling it with kid gloves.
No surprise, then, that we also guarantee that the KeySmart will take anything life throws at it. Take it anywhere – from work, to the beach, and much more – knowing it won’t get dented or scratch easily.
You won’t have to worry about the contents of your pockets getting scratched, either! For instance, you can rest assured your keys won’t scratch your phone. And as an added bonus, you’ll be able to walk around without being heard a mile away due to your keys jingling and jangling about – as they would on a conventional keychain.
And how’s this for ultimate convenience? The KeySmart boasts a built-in clip that allows you to attach it to any pocket, belt, or bag. (If you’d prefer to go without the clip, you can easily remove it.) You can even customize your KeySmart by adding accessories like USB drives and bottle openers to it, all available separately on the KeySmart website.

This here is the proper syntax for the attribute command:
After knowing all of the basics, now let’s give it a shot and try to see how we can remove a virus from USB, SD card etc. using CMD prompt.
For example, let’s transfer an autorun.inf virus from my USB to my D drive and delete the virus from the D drive.
Step 1. Open command prompt from search and run as administrator.
Step 2. Type D and hit enter
Step 3. Type “attrib” and press enter. This command lists out all files inside the current drive and you will clearly see autorun.inf virus listed.
Step 4. At this stage to remove the virus using CMD, type into command prompt “attrib –r –a –s –h *.* “ And press enter. This in turn will remove the read only, archive, system and hidden file attribute from all the files.
-r is for removing read only files
-a is for removing the archive file
-s is for removing system file
-h is for removing hidden file
*.* is for files with all different types of file extensions.
Keep in mind that this command only removes the different attributes from different files. However, the files will still exist. And therefore we must delete the virus permanently. To delete the virus, type “delete autorun.inf” and press enter. The file will get deleted from the current drive immediately.

Using both WiFi and Mobile internet packs would undoubtedly increase the download speed but, while the internet pack is being used WiFi cannot be used and while WiFi is being used the data pack cannot be used. Which means only one can be used at a particular time. If we had an option of using both at the same time, the download speed would have increased considerably as both the speeds would have added up thus, reducing the download time.
There are tools which let you achieve this impossible task. Using these apps, you can use WiFi as well as internet packs simultaneously to download any file on your Android device. The name of these magical apps is ‘Super Download’ and ‘Speedify.’ But, Super Download app is capable of showing its trick only on devices which are rooted.

Before you start using this app, make sure that your device is rooted. If you don’t wish to root your device, unfortunately, you won’t be able to make use Super Download app.
How To Use Mobile Data & WiFi Simultaneously:
However, for those who have their Android Devices Rooted, there are few simple steps you need to follow to install this app on your Android device and make it work efficiently. Speedify doesn’t require your device to be rooted. It works perfectly on devices which aren’t rooted. So let’s take a look at these steps.
Method #1: Using Super Download
While using this app, see to it that both WiFi and internet pack provide with almost equal speeds, some devices even though rooted won’t be able to make use of this app. You won’t be able to download torrent files using this app. The free version has some size limits, to eliminate these limits, you can upgrade to the paid version of this app.
Step 1: Install ‘Super Download’ from Google Play Store on your Android device.
Step 2: Arrive at the home screen of this app once it is installed and launched. It should display a message which reads ‘No active files!’
Step 3: Navigate yourself to the settings of this app and enable the ‘Dual networks’ option which allows your Android device to enable WiFi as well as internet pack at the same time.

Are your binaries tied to an older version of CRT that for maintenance reasons you can’t upgrade?
Are you dependent on older (non-conformant) language constructs that would break if you move to a more recent compiler?
Are you relying on 3rd party libraries compiled with a specific version of the VC toolset?
Are you exposing C++ APIs for other parties to consume, so you’re restricted to a specific version of the C++ compiler & CRT?
If these cover your reasons for not using VS 2017, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: you can start using Visual Studio 2017 today without having to change your toolset version (i.e. the current compiler and the matching target CRT).
Well, it’s not really a secret that Visual Studio supports native multi-targeting and round-tripping. And we definitely want to shine more light on it:
Native multi-targeting is the ability of the latest IDE to build using toolsets installed by previous versions of Visual Studio (VS 2008 and up).
Round-tripping is the ability of the latest IDE to load projects created by a previous IDE version without making any changes to the project assets (VS 2010 projects and up), thus allowing it to load back in the previous IDE too.
Using these features means that you will be taking advantage of the latest IDE features in VS 2017 without also taking advantage of the latest advances in the C++ compiler, libraries and build tools (e.g. build throughput). Disclaimer: there are IDE features that also depend on the latest toolset capabilities and they will be incompatible with older toolsets: e.g. type information will be missing in the Memory Profiler, and the refactoring operation “Convert to Raw string literals” will generate C++11-compliant code, making it not compile with VS 2012 compilers and older.
Say again? How does Native retargeting work?
Taking advantage of native multi-targeting is as simple as installing Visual Studio 2017 side-by-side with your older Visual Studio version, then opening your existing project in VS 2017.
During project load, you will receive a prompt on whether you want to upgrade to the latest C++ toolset shipping with VS 2017. Since you want to stay with the older compiler and libraries version, you should decline by hitting the “Cancel” button – you can always upgrade later too if you choose to experiment with the latest C++ toolset.
Now every time you build in VS 2017, the binaries that get generated are fully compatible with the ones you were previously building in your older version, e.g. VS2010. That’s because behind the scenes, VS 2017 delegates the build to the same C++ compiler and consumes the same libraries that your older IDE ships with.
A new dilemma: should I let my team know? About project round-tripping
Because you chose not to upgrade your project, VS 2017 doesn’t make anychanges to your project or solution. So the fact that you’re using VS 2017 in your day-to-day work might as well be your little secret – the rest of your team will continue to use the older version without any clue that you’ve upgraded. It’s kind of a big secret since your colleagues won’t know how you suddenly increased your productivity so much!
So, can you really keep this a secret? Once the cat is out of the bag, everyone could be using VS 2017 around the office — our whole team here in Redmond agrees that’s a good thing (and… we’re not biased at all)
PS: What you’ll notice is that everyone in the team will see the same upgrade prompt the first time they load the project in VS 2017. So if you want to avoid an accidental pull request that upgrades all your projects coming from the enthusiastic junior member in the office down the hall, you can inhibit the upgrade prompt completely before spreading the news by following the instructions in this Connect report “VS 2013 keeps upgrade information in the .suo file” (it works in VS 2017 too).
What about Visual Studio 2008?
Visual Studio 2008 had its own dedicated build system for C++ called VCBuild. With VS 2010, C++ moved to MSBuild so because of this change, to get your VS 2008 projects building in VS 2017 requires a bit more work. The end result will be similar as above: you will be using the VS 2017 IDE and generate binaries that are fully compatible with binaries created from the VS 2008 IDE.
First, in addition to installing VS 2017 you also need to install VS 2010 on the same machine with your VS 2008. This ensures that the appropriate MSBuild scripts that enable targeting VS 2008 are installed (they only ship with VS 2010).
Second, you will need to put your VS 2008 solution and projects through the upgrade process. When you get the below upgrade prompt, please review the information presented.
Now is also a good time to create a backup copy of your VS 2008 .sln file as it will get overwritten by the VS 2017 .sln file (if you’re only experimenting with VS 2017, maybe you may even want to upgrade the backup copy instead of the master copy under source control). When you click “OK”, the wizard will create VC project files with a new extension (.vcxproj) side-by-side with the existing .vcproj files, so as long as you’re taking care of the .sln file, the upgrade will be impact-free for your existing VS 2008 projects.
When the upgrade completes, you will get an upgrade log report. If there are any errors or warnings for any of your projects, you should review the log carefully and make sure that you acknowledge the changes presented and follow up on any action items listed there. For more information on the upgrade log report check out the C++ Project Upgrade Guide.
Now that the project upgrade is complete, your project actually targets the VS 2017 latest toolset. You need to go back to VS 2008 as a last step: open the project properties (right click in Solution Explorer on the project and select Properties) and under General, change Platform Toolset to “Visual Studio 2008 (v90)” instead of “Visual Studio 2017 (v141)”.
After this change, the binaries built by VS 2017 will be built using the same VS 2008 compiler and libraries as the ones building inside the VS 2008 IDE.
While we’d like to see all of you using the latest C++ toolset too, we know that migrating your code and dependencies takes time and depending on where you are in your project lifecycle, it can add too much risk. However, we hope you find this refresher on native multi-targeting and round-tripping of C++ projects useful, and a good reminder that this shouldn’t hold you back from taking advantage of the IDE improvements in the latest Visual Studio IDE.
Is there anything else holding you back? We want to know what other reasons may block you from upgrading today. Let us know by adding your comments below or by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for a more detailed conversation.
Do you know, whenever you login with your account, you also allow various organizations or companies reach to you. They use this information to show you some advertisements, so that they can sell things to you. Facebook also keeps track records of the websites and apps that so that they can provide you with the relevant ads. Not only that, they also show you notifications and statuses based on that only. You can check for these kinds of apps in your settings and see whether or not you want them to track you.
Private messages is a myth
Mark Zuckerberg in his recent interview has mentioned that apart from focusing on public content, Facebook is also trying to indulge in some private content too. You may feel that private conversations are insignificant, but they do provide some information to the developers about how do you make use of technology and also about your field of interests based on the posts or messages you share. Conversations are tapped and recorded by the companies which share information to the advertisers about your mental or some personal history, which if gets into a wrong hand can destroy your future.
Over sharing becomes a habit
Not only Facebook other social networking sites also have a detrimental effect on your privacy. Think of it as, how great it would have been if during sharing a particular post you can also take care of your security instead of compromising with it. Even if you have locked down your privacy, still there is a variety of content you shouldn’t post on Facebook. It’s a very bad idea to share any kind of posts that are offensive and negative or posts that show too many personal details in any respect. You never know who can take advantage of your situation or put you in some difficult situation.
Best are the posts which are not meant for everyone
Over the past few years, people have started to abandon the use of Facebook. They generally use them to see what others are posting. People are now preferring apps that provide a more intimate connection as Facebook doesn’t allow to have more intimate conversations because if we want to share something that will be delivered to everybody with whom you are connected on Facebook since middle school. Most users use apps and platform that delete their messages and shared photos automatically like they did in Snapchat. At least you are the master of your own privacy.
Data overburden can lead to negative effects
By now you have already realized that Facebook sells ad space to the companies requiring it or companies who wants to reach you and makes money thereby. Facebook silently analyzes your profile, your browsing history and your messages to figure out important information about you and peacefully sharing it without even letting us know. These information can be very dangerous as they can be used as a weapon used against you. Various organizations and companies gather information online to figure out what are up to in your personal and professional life and this can deliberately affect your chances of getting hired.
Over spending of time
And now last but not the least you should quit Facebook so that you can avoid overspending your time on Facebook and do something productive. I definitely agree that Facebook provides a means to connect with your friends and family, and this is seriously very intimidating and fascinating, but it does take a huge toll on our time. We can never know when we are getting trapped in the magical world of Facebook and once trapped, it is very difficult to come out of it.
It is easy to share things on Facebook without even thinking once. If you are feeling low just write a post and someone will be there to cheer you up but the problem arises when your employer sees such kinds of post and starts judging you accordingly. That is why I think you should quit Facebook so that you regain your privacy. Why let some normal friend, your employer or as mentioned earlier, Facebook, to indulge in your personal matters and make inferences from it. So, at last, I would just say delete your account and manage your control in a more efficient way as you want it to be managed.

Deep Web And Dark Web – In this age of high web technology, the usage of the web has increased tremendously. Thus search engines are on their ways to update their existing algorithms along with introducing new ones in order to keep pace with changing trends. Special protocols along with software are taken into usage for convenience.
What does Deep Web refer to?
Now, terms like deep web and dark web seem to be used very much commonly. But can you state the actual difference between them? For your kind information deep web refers to the web that holds its existence into those places that are beyond the reach of search engines. It comprises of those items that have not been listed by Google & Company. They are:
The deep web is presumed to be related to something awesome in the web, similar to the notorious Silk Road black market. But it holds a difference! Everything in case of deep web is not at all bad or illegal. As it does not get indexed by search engines, they hardly turn up when searched.
Examples of Deep Web
Some of the best examples of deep web include:
Online banking transactions
Messages on Instagram and many more.
These are something that is accessed probably on a regular basis. None of them can be turned up on the web via any of the search engines. Instead they are hidden under the shelter of a paywall or protected via password. In short, anything that is difficult to fetch on the web surface via a search engine may be considered as a part of deep web.
Web Browsers to Access Deep Web
Thus it may be easily inferred that the deep web may be also known to be an invisible or hidden web. But it may be easily accessed via web browsers like:
You must have also heard about dark web. Rite! Let’s get ourselves introduced to the same and get to know the way it differs from deep web. Like any web-like network, the dark webtakes into usage proprietary protocols. Sometimes it also requires special types of software to gain access. At present there are numerous networks, Freenet and TOR that fall under this category.
To be a bit precise, dark web cannot be accessed by taking into usage standard web browsers. Do you know why it is also known as the underbelly of the Internet? Dark webcomprises of those particular websites that are involved in the selling of illegal products like drugs. Also they are known to house websites that deal with unwanted stuffs like child pornography and weapons.
Well, why do you need Google search engine alternatives while Google is still the best search engine. But, in-fact alternatives search engines looks your information in different ways and stores your data in different ways. Here’re the best alternatives of Google’s search.
DuckDuckGo is the top priority in our list due to its numerous features. It was founded in 2008. DuckDuckGo is one of the fastest growing search engine and a good alternative to Google search. It claims that they never track you whatever you searches. DuckDuckGo gains huge popularity in short time because of its plans on maintaining “user privacy.” It aggregates data from Bing, Yandex and other major search engines and displays result privately to its users. DuckDuckGo is an open source project and codes are available on Github.
Bing is the 2nd biggest search engine in the USA, it has 19.8% market share backed by Microsoft. It was launched in 2009. Bing offers a lot of key features like Google – operating calculations, Flight tracking, Calculators, Conversations, Spellcheck and more.

Always maintain a good antivirus and internet security to avoid key loggers
2. Hack Facebook account password by phishing
Phishing is a very popular method used for hacking Facebook accounts. Perhaps because its victims are always unsuspecting. However, there are various ways of carrying out a phishing attack. The most common one is where a hacker creates a replica of a login page which looks like the real Facebook page. The victim will then think it’s the usual login page therefore entering in his login details. Once the victim is logged in through the fake page, the victim’s email address and password are stored in a text file and it’s all done. The hacker has his prize. The login details.
How to avoid phishing;
Never login your Facebook account on other devices
Use chrome since it identifies the phishing page
Avoid emails that ask you to log into your Facebook account.
3. Hack Facebook account password by session hijacking
Session hijacking is where the hacker steals the victim’s browser cookie which is used in authentication of the user on a website and after getting the cookie, the hacker can then access the victim’s account. Session hijacking is mostly common when accessing Facebook on an HTTP (non-secure) connection and it is widely used on LAN and Wi-Fi connections.
4. Saved passwords from browsers
Most of us are fond of granting permission to our browsers to save our usernames and passwords on our devices be it a computer or smartphone.
Anyone can hack your Facebook account from your browser’s password manager. Because of that never save your password on your device. For you may never know when the info will be hijacked.
How to avoid against hijacking
Never save login credentials on your browser
Always use a strong password on your computer
5. Sidejacking with firesheep
Firesheep is mostly used to carry out sidejacking attacks. However, firesheep only works when the attacker and victim are on the same Wi-Fi network. A sidejacking attack can similarly be looked at as HTTP session hijacking though it’s more directed towards Wi-Fi users.
As we all know, highest number of Facebook users access Facebook through their phone the hacker can gain access to the victims Facebook account. There exists many mobile phone spying software. The most popular ones being mobile spy and spy phone gold. So better watch out.
How to safeguard yourself
Use trustworthy mobile security and antivirus on your phone
Avoid installing apps from unknown sources
Always uninstall suspicious apps
7. DNS spoofing
With DNS spoofing, the hacker, if on the same network with the victim, can change the original page and replace it with his own fake page and easily gain access to the victims Facebook account.
How to safeguard against spoofing
Always configure it to be secure against cache poisoning
Manage your DNS servers securely
Separate the authoritative function from resolving function using different servers
8. USB hacking
A hacker can get physical access to your computer and insert a USB programmed to automatically extract or retrieve saved passwords in the internet browser or any other information the hacker may need.
How to protect yourself;
Insert trusted USB devices into your computer
Avoid sharing your computer
Don’t purchase second hand USB devices
Scan USB devices once plugged in
9. Man in the middle attacks
With this method, it’s very tricky when the hacker and victim are on the same LAN and on a switch based network. The hacker places himself between the client and the server, or he could act as a default gateway and capture all the traffic in between.
Basically, botnets are networks made of remote controlled computers or bots. These bots have been infected with malware that allows them to be remotely controlled. It’s expensive to set up botnets and this makes them to be minimally used in cases of hacking Facebook accounts. Some very popular botnets include spyeye and zeus.
Social engineering is a simple method that’s based on collecting as much info from the victims as possible. The information may include date of birth, phone number, etc. once a hacker gains access to this info and somehow it’s the same info used as a password, then the hacker can get access into the Facebook account effortlessly.
How to avoid this
Never share personal info via email or phone
Avoid links from unknown or suspicious sites
Block USB devices to minimize risk of baiting
12. Email ID hacking
With this method, the hacker only needs to access the connected email id of any account and then reset the Facebook password manually.
How to avoid this
Enable 2 step authentification in your Gmail account
Use strong passwords
Avoid entering email on scrupulous sites
13. Viewing masked passwords
In case your browser saves your Facebook login credentials. This means you are prone to being hacked by almost anyone since they can view your masked passwords (****). The hacker just needs to tweak a few set ups in the browser and he will gain access to your password eventually. This indicates that you should never leave your computer on a sign up page of any site. Also, never save your Facebook or other login credentials in the browser.
14. Hacking Wi-Fi network
If you have a Wi-Fi router, it’s better to set it up with a strong password. If you use a weak password to set up the router security, a hacker can hack your Wi-Fi network and hijack all your internet traffic which can let eventually expose your Facebook account.
Unfortunately people love logging in but don’t like logging out. That’s why very many Facebook users never log out their Facebook accounts from their computer. With your Facebook account logged in, anyone can access your Facebook. Therefore, always endeavor to log out every time you are done using your account.
With all that information, I assume you will know how to protect your accounts better and safeguard from the malicious hackers. If you have anything to add, please inform us in the comments section.
Semalt Digital Services'in Müsteri Basari Yöneticisi olan Jason Adler, SEO ve dijital pazarlama arasindaki baglantiyi açikliyor.
SEO ve Dijital Pazarlama birçok benzerligi paylasabilir ancak bazi önemli farkliliklari vardir. Bir SEO uzmani tasarim, içerik ve meta URL'leri gibi arama motorlarinin görünürlügü için daha fazla trafik ve nihayet daha fazla gelir için en uygun olan bazi özellikleri elde etmede deneyime sahiptir. Öte yandan, bir dijital pazarlama yöneticisi, bir SEO uzmaniyla, özellikle bir reklam kampanyasinda, bir sirketin hedef nis için Internet'te görünür olmasini saglamak için birlikte çalisir.
Dijital pazarlamacilar, müsterileri bir kampanyada bulunan bir marka veya hizmeti bulmaya yönlendiren bir araç olarak SEO'ya bagimlidir. Dijital pazarlama, billboardlar, mesajlasma, kitle iletisim araçlari veya hatta yönlendirmeler gibi diger alternatifleri kullanir. SEO kesinlikle internete dayalidir ve özellikle web sitesi içeriginden cümleler içeren sorgulari takip eden arama motorlarindan müsterileri getirmeye yöneliktir. SEO bir web sitesini ziyaret eden kisilerin sayisini artirmaya odaklandigindan, dijital pazarlama genellikle müsterilerin firmanin genel görünürlügünü artirmakla ilgilidir.
SEO ve dijital pazarlama arasindaki iliski küçük ancak birbirinden farkli. SEO agirlikli olarak anahtar kelime arama, tanitim ve web gelistirme ile ilgili konularda yer almaktadir. SEO bilgi ve arama motorlarinda bir web sitesi rütbesinin tasarimi optimize içerir. Bu süreç, firmalarin çevrimiçi varligini almalarini ve organik (ücretli olmayan) trafigin avantajlarindan yararlanmalarini saglar. Bir web sitesi, dogrudan onlardan trafik kazanarak rakiplerini yenebilir. Dijital pazarlama, daha iyi müsteri odakli gelisme için bir markanin tanitimini yapmak için çevrimiçi veya çevrimdisi olmak üzere tüm pazarlama kampanyalarina atif yapan kolektif bir terimdir. Hem SEO hem de dijital pazarlama el ele tutusur ve birçok isletme online olarak gelisir. Diger perspektiflerde hem SEO hem de dijital pazarlama tüketicilerin bir markanin çevrimiçi varligini artirarak onu bulmalarini sagliyor.
Optimalisatie op Bing geeft u een concurrentievoordeel, aangezien de meeste bedrijven beschouwen alleen voor Google te optimaliseren. Bing en Yahoo domineren momenteel een 30% van de zoekopdrachten en dus geven u een overhand om potentiële klanten te verwerven, die uw concurrenten kunnen negeren.
Met behulp van Bing en Yahoo kan u ook een demografie maken van mensen die om verschillende redenen minder gebruik maken van Google. Dit hangt af van het doelgroep, delen van het land en huishoudens. Aangezien Google vaak regelmatig updates uitvoert, is het bedrijf altijd in staat om de inhoud ervan te verspreiden naar een breed publiek op Yahoo en Bing, omdat het zich streeft naar afstemming met Google-updates.
Hoe verschilt Google SEO van Bing SEO?
Uitgaande van een recente SearchMetrics analyse, hieronder zijn enkele van de belangrijke Bing SEO ranking factoren:
Topbedrijven worden meestal hoger gerangschikt als bij Google.
Sociale signalen zijn nauw verwant aan hogere rankings.
Backlink nummers tonen nauwe associaties met een hogere ranking.
Kwaliteit en relevante inhoud zijn cruciaal voor zoekrangschappen.
Één pagina technische parameters hebben belangrijke rol.
De deskundige van Semalt geeft ook een uitleg van bovenstaande factoren naast anderen die je zou moeten overwegen bij het optimaliseren voor Bing.
1. Website Type en Brand Partialiteiten
In tegenstelling tot Google heeft Bing geen problemen bij het onderscheiden van merken van aangesloten concurrenten. Bing begunstigt ook oude platforms met officiële domeinmarkeringen zoals .edu of .gov, die impliceren dat Bing zich richt op resultaten die relevant worden geacht.
2. Sociale Indicatoren
In vergelijking met Google, benadrukt Bing op sociale media-indicatoren, wat resulteert in meer tweets, aandelen en voor strategisch gepositioneerde resultaten. Google integreert nog sociale platforms succesvol in hun zoekresultaten.
In tegenstelling tot Google, voor een pagina om zijn ranking te behouden in de index van Bing, moet er minimaal één externe link erin bestaan.
4. Locatie en inhoud
Kwaliteit en relevantie van de inhoud resulteren in een hogere ranking voor zowel Bing als Google, maar de voormalige heeft beter personeel om sites te herkennen die Flash toepassen, die niet in Google bestaat. Bing levert ook resultaten van kleine ondernemingen, terwijl Google zich richt op gevestigde bedrijven.
5. Technische parameters
Met betrekking tot het uitrichten van interne pagina's heeft Bing een sterke relatie met thuispagina's in vergelijking met Google. Bing is ook afhankelijk van trefwoorden in metatags en paginatitels, terwijl Google meer instinctueel is over het perspectief van een pagina.
U moet rekening houden met de verschillen tussen Google en Bing ranking factoren voordat u beslissingen neemt die gericht zijn op het verbeteren van de rang van uw site op beide zoekmachines.
I collegamenti in entrata sono un elemento essenziale per la determinazione dei siti web classificati in Google. In precedenza, un sito web con il maggior numero di link in arrivo potrebbe essere superiore a quello di un sito web concorrente con backlinks più bassi. Le aziende creerebbero un sacco di collegamenti in entrata indipendentemente dalla loro qualità o se avessero un senso dato che Google non si preoccupava di rapporti tra i link ei siti web. Google poi rivoluzionò. Panda è stata introdotta per la prima volta all'inizio del 2011, poi il Penguin è stato rilasciato più tardi nel 2012. All'improvviso, la qualità dei collegamenti in entrata ha assunto la quantità e, contemporaneamente, le aziende che hanno partecipato alla raccolta di un gran numero di backlinks si sono impegnati in tecniche sbagliate durante la creazione di contenuti. Secondo esperto di Semalt Andrew Dyhan, uno specialista di marketing online, quello che Panda ha iniziato è stato rifinito dal pinguino. Molti siti web hanno assistito a un drastico calo delle loro classifica, delle entrate e del traffico, e questo è dove uno dei nostri clienti è stato colto. Questo è stato un grande stupore per i webmaster interessati i cui siti sono stati colpiti.
I cattivi collegamenti in arrivo non mostrano l'effetto innocuo finché non hanno fatto molto male un giorno. I clienti non si rendono conto dell'urgenza di sbarazzarsi di backlinks prima di mostrare loro l'analisi del loro conto del cliente. Se nelle prime fasi, eliminando i collegamenti difettosi non è molto tempo e costoso, più tardi quando la perdita sarà abbastanza brutta, la rimozione dei cattivi collegamenti entranti è diventata la priorità urgente che ti renderà pronti a qualsiasi importo. una volta avviato la rimozione dei cattivi collegamenti, ma purtroppo alcuni clienti tendono ad essere disposti a ottenere il risultato immediato.
Per mantenere i clienti, qualsiasi impresa di SEO dovrebbe immediatamente cercare i legami difettosi e eliminarli. Attualmente, riveliamo ai potenziali clienti per quanto riguarda la rimozione di collegamenti difettosi e, se è obbligatoria, li consiglio loro di investire in esso per una prima coppia di parole. La lezione più grande è quella di avere una comprensione di dove Google è diretto e guidare i clienti verso tale itinerario. Per i clienti di SEO, non è più un'opzione per essere aggiornata con la tendenza al fine di riuscire. Inoltre, abbandonare la necessità di ottenere assistenza dalla ditta di SEO molto probabilmente farà il tuo concorrente un vincitore. Pertanto, è importante seguire i professionisti.
Il y a plus de chances que les demi-vérités coulent que les mythes absolus. Les mythes et les idées fausses sont normalement destinés à ceux qui ne font pas partie de l'industrie. D'autre part, l'industrie SEO est inondée de demi-vérités car dans la plupart des cas, ils ne travaillent pas avec des faits directs. Le fait que les algorithmes de tous les moteurs de recherche, y compris Google, sont les meilleurs secrets, cela signifie qu'ils ne peuvent pas révéler ce qu'ils considèrent lors du classement des résultats, mais ils ne peuvent donner que des indices. De même, une idée est facilement acceptée si cela semble concevable. Par exemple, un contenu avec plusieurs partages sociaux a de grandes chances de gagner des liens entrants, mais ce n'est peut-être pas le partage de médias sociaux qui exécute le travail. Par conséquent, sur la base des indices appropriés que nous avons sur les parts sociales, c'est une demi-vérité qui est facile à consentir.
Le rythme de l'industrie
Le rythme rapide de l'industrie SEO conduit à la montée de la désinformation. Bien que Google s'adapte à un calendrier de diffusion lent et continu, la montée en puissance, la fourniture de nouvelles technologies et de styles de recherche rendent difficile le rattrapage des optimiseurs de recherche. Cela a divers impacts sur la diffusion de la désinformation, car une information autrefois valide peut facilement devenir obsolète, et les gens fournissent souvent des informations inadéquates dans une tentative désespérée d'être le premier à couvrir une recherche ou une mise à jour récente. Comprendre l'information en bits est important, mais une hypothèse rapide peut entraîner une mauvaise compréhension de ce qui se passe réellement. Enfin, avec la vitesse rapide, une mauvaise information peut se propager dans un court laps de temps et peut être trop tard pour la corriger une fois reçue par la communauté.
Comment éviter la désinformation
Références croisées. Toujours comparer les informations provenant de diverses sources. Vérifiez si une autre source hast données qui confirme les informations dans la source actuelle.
Rechercher des preuves tangibles. Si un rapport fournit des informations générales, par exemple, recherchez des données statistiques, des faits et des chiffres facilement disponibles dans d'autres entreprises.
Vérifiez vos sources. Par exemple, si une personne au hasard donne des informations sur les tactiques de référencement, il sera plus précis si vous cherchez la même chose d'une personne qui a une carrière dans le référencement.
Défiez vos hypothèses. Essayez de réfuter certaines de vos croyances afin de vous rapprocher de la vérité ultime.
Esta é uma tentação que a maioria das pessoas dá em algum momento em seus esforços de construção de links. Um link de alta qualidade é melhor do que potencialmente dezenas de links de baixa qualidade. No entanto, são difíceis de obter links de alta qualidade, enquanto os de baixa qualidade são fáceis de adquirir. Isso configura uma armadilha para você se decidir seguir o caminho da menor resistência.
A quantidade de seus links, no entanto, nunca compensará a má qualidade dos links. Um link de alta qualidade oferece muito mais do que um impulso de SEO. Eles também oferecem benefícios de referência e benefícios de marca.
2. Sobre otimizar texto âncora
Este conceito já foi vital para a criação efetiva de links. Mas isso mudou. Hoje, o texto âncora de seus links de entrada pode ganhar uma penalidade se eles criam um padrão de manipulação ou não natural. Essas penalidades são bastante severas e você pode não conseguir se recuperar de uma. Em vez disso, certifique-se de que seu texto âncora é lógico e útil.
3. Precipitação do conteúdo
Essencialmente, seus links devem ser enquadrados no conteúdo de alta qualidade. Caso apague seu conteúdo ou dê prioridade ao seu link sobre o conteúdo, o mecanismo de pesquisa poderá ver o seu link como suspeito. Em alguns casos, você também corre o risco de ser rejeitado pelos editores também. Certifique-se de que o seu material é digno de ser publicado antes de colocá-lo lá fora.
4. Falha na diversificação
Para ser bem sucedido na construção de links, sua estratégia deve ser tão diversificada quanto possível. Isso significa que você precisa confiar em uma variedade de fontes diferentes e girar seus padrões de distribuição. Pode ser um desafio conseguir um grau de aleatoriedade orquestrada, mas terá que ser feito se você tiver a intenção de ver os benefícios reais de sua cruzada de construção de links.
5. Falha na escala
Este é um erro comum que os amadores fazem uma vez que sua campanha de construção de links começa a ganhar impulso. Se quiser continuar melhorando, você terá que escalar para cima. Isso envolve a criação de melhor conteúdo, o trabalho com fontes de maior qualidade e a construção de links de maior qualidade. Gerenciar este processo de desenvolvimento pode ser tributável, mas a última coisa que você quer fazer é estagnar.
Estes erros variam de inócuo a devastador em termos de gravidade. No entanto, eles são facilmente evitáveis. Independentemente de quão bom você seja, você cometerá erros. Como você mitiga suas perdas, no entanto, determinará se você vai seguir em frente ou não.
El experto líder de Semalt, Frank Abagnale describe los factores cruciales que uno debe considerar para reutilizar el contenido con éxito.
1. Recuperar todos los datos de las campañas publicitarias realizadas anteriormente. Obtener todos los datos puede ayudarte a mantenerte concentrado en las tácticas SEO anteriores. Basándose en esta experiencia, también mejorará la efectividad del uso de palabras clave específicas, eligiendo el canal de marketing más adecuado. Hay muchas herramientas automáticas que pueden ayudarle a analizar métricas de negocio durante un período prolongado. Los datos son el elemento clave en información fundamental sobre el desempeño de su empresa.
2. La segmentación del cliente es esencial. El contenido que elija debe reflejar el nicho de destino que está tratando de impresionar. Centrarse en su nicho objetivo es un factor beneficioso para alcanzar las campañas publicitarias objetivo. La segmentación puede ser una herramienta poderosa para llegar a su audiencia en todas las plataformas posibles. En muchos casos, la gente sufre de estafa herramientas que prometen dar resultados rápidos en conseguir tráfico. Sin embargo, no toma en la segmentación de cliente de cuenta. El repurposing del contenido puede ayudarle a resolver este problema alcanzando hacia fuera su nicho particular con éxito.
3. La creación de una interfaz de usuario sensible es otro aspecto esencial de la reutilización de contenido. Tiene un impacto positivo en mantener a los visitantes centrados en el sitio web, lo que significa un compromiso constante de la audiencia. UX considera los elementos que hacen que navegar por el sitio web sea cómodo para los visitantes. Tiene mucho que ver con el diseño web y también. Todo el complejo de técnicas de interfaz de usuario se reduce a la necesidad de colocar la llamada a los botones de acción en el lugar en particular en el sitio web. Cuanto más interactivo sea el enfoque de los diseñadores de UX para el sitio web, más probable el usuario reaccionará al mensaje que desea entregar.
4. Recoger información sobre los lectores. La información y la retroalimentación de los lectores actuales le ayudarán a estimar las perspectivas de satisfacción del cliente. Puede pedir opiniones individuales y puntos de vista para que sea beneficioso para los ajustes necesarios. Después de todo, el sitio web es todo lo que el público quiere. Alcanzar algunos de estos usuarios cosechará sus grandes beneficios en forma de obtener el conocimiento necesario de las ideas que debe incorporar en las campañas futuras.
5. A veces, el contenido antiguo puede inspirarte para crear el contenido futuro. Invierta una buena cantidad de tiempo en volver al contenido anterior. No todo puede ser útil. Sin embargo, el desarrollo de una buena estrategia de contenido, que se centra en los materiales anteriores, puede ser útil en el diseño de campañas publicitarias. El contenido debe tener las fechas actualizadas. Siguiendo estos sencillos pasos, el contenido antiguo permanecerá perenne. Además, también es posible convertir contenido antiguo en algo completamente diferente.
Tan pronto como el objetivo de los editores es mantener la relevancia y visibilidad del contenido, volver en el contenido antiguo de vez en cuando es importante en muchas razones. La razón principal es que volver a poner contenido antiguo puede ayudarle a aumentar los resultados de SEO ranking. Ignorar los comentarios anteriores es un gran error, que puede reducir muchos esfuerzos. Por lo tanto, la reutilización de contenido antiguo requiere los aspectos mencionados anteriormente.
Heutzutage wurden viele Tools entwickelt, um Ihnen bei Ihrer SEO zu helfen. Es gibt Tools für die Keyword-Recherche, Backlinks-Analyse, Traffic-Auswertung, Berichterstellung usw. Was auch immer Sie bei Ihrer Suchmaschinenoptimierung benötigen, finden Sie im Internet. Im letzten Jahrzehnt sind viele einfach zu verwendende Tools für die Verwaltung von Inhalten und Websites entstanden, die vielen Websites geholfen haben, ihre Ranking-Statistiken erheblich zu verbessern. Doch trotz der Plattformen, die Wix und WordPress bereits mehrere SEO-Tools erstellt haben, helfen sie selten, ihre Websites hoch einzustufen. Es ist nicht möglich, eine einzige Lösung für alle Unternehmen zu verwenden, deshalb empfiehlt Semalt, individuelle SEO-Strategien auszuarbeiten, die für jeden einzelnen Fall geeignet sind.
Bedeutet es, dass Sie genau das tun sollten?
Wenn Sie denken, dass die Antwort ja ist, haben Sie nicht genau untersucht, was SEO tickt. Zu Beginn suchte Google jede Webseite nach Suchergebnissen und deren Platzierung in den Suchergebnissen ab. Damals war der Erfolg eines Schlüsselwortes davon abhängig, wie oft es im Inhalt erwähnt wurde. Dies ist, wie versteckte Text-Technologie von Black Hat SEO-Praktiker entwickelt wurde, und deshalb hat Google diese Methode aufgegeben. Als nächstes fing Google an, die Bedeutung von Backlinks und deren Höhe zu berücksichtigen. Dies wurde auch von Webmastern ausgenutzt, die einen billigen und schnellen Weg zum TOP wollten und Google veranlassten, die Strategie noch einmal zu ändern.
Derzeit berücksichtigt Google Algorithmus eine Vielzahl von Faktoren: von Backlinks zu Keywords zu Social Media. Mit nur einem Element ist es nicht genug, um Ihre Marke zum TOP der Suchergebnisse zu machen. Mit der Einführung eines neuen Algorithmus kann morgen jedoch diese ganze Struktur völlig verändert werden
Google ist keine Maschine. Es ist ein Unternehmen, mit Experten, die ständig die Leistung von Suchmaschinen, das Verhalten von Webmastern analysieren und den Komfort der Benutzer vorrangig machen. Sobald sie die Benutzerfreundlichkeit einer Suchmaschine beeinträchtigen, wenden sie daher die erforderlichen Änderungen an, um Websites zu entfernen, die die Verwendung von Google beeinträchtigen. Jedes Mal, wenn eine Herausforderung auftritt, ändert sich Google.
Sogar das erstaunlichste automatisierte Werkzeug kann nicht mit der man-geführten Entwicklung der Suchmaschine mithalten. Ihre Werkzeuge funktionieren vielleicht sofort, aber in einer Woche werden sie gegen die neuen Richtlinien nutzlos sein. Also, wenn Sie etwas wollen, das Sie mit langfristigen Ergebnissen versorgen und die plötzlichen Turnarounds des Google-Algorithmus aushalten würde, bleibt eine kompetente SEO-Agentur Ihr bester Freund. Bei der engen Zusammenarbeit mit Einzelpersonen, die SEO durchführen, kann man viele Markttrends in Bezug auf die Art und Weise erfahren, wie verschiedene Websites funktionieren.
Joost de Valk, der Gründer und Erfinder von Yoast SEO für WordPress Plugins, stimmte zu, dass trotz der Möglichkeit vieler existierender Tools eine Set-and-Forget-Methode zur Verfügung steht, die SEO-Automatisierung ein komplexer Prozess ist, der mehr als das beinhaltet. Zum Beispiel können Maschinen und Software nur teilweise das technische Bit der SEO bedienen. Die Entwicklung von Inhalten und das virale Marketing erfordern ein höheres Maß an menschlichem Engagement, damit sie funktionieren.
SEO-Automatisierung ist ein Prozess, der komplizierter ist, als Sie vielleicht denken. Viele White Hat SEO-Entwicklungstools versprechen eine schnelle Lösung für temporäre Probleme. Es gibt jedoch immer noch ein hohes Maß an Beteiligung an der Entwicklung der Inhalte. SEO-Tools sind unerlässlich und machen das Leben für die meisten Aufgaben, die technische Anforderungen erfordern, leichter. Nichtsdestotrotz garantieren sie Ihnen keine Platzierung in den Suchergebnissen: Im besten Fall werden sie Ihre Website davon abhalten, in den Reihen niedriger zu fallen, aber selbst dieser Vorteil wird nach einem Algorithmuswechsel weg sein.
Kein automatisiertes Programm kann garantieren, dass die harte Arbeit bei der Content-Entwicklung wie Content-Bearbeitung, Inbound-Linking und Keyword-Auswahl ersetzt wird, da es mit den Maschinen nicht richtig funktioniert. Die Verwendung eines vollständig automatisierten Ansatzes bedeutet auch, die Flexibilität und Anpassungsfähigkeit zu opfern, die Sie benötigen, wenn sich die Suchmaschinenoptimierungsroutine plötzlich ändert. Solange Google von Unternehmern und nicht von AI geführt wird, bleibt die Zusammenarbeit mit SEO-Experten die beste Methode, TOP-Positionen zu erobern.
I believe it’s possible to construct a simple mental framework that can be used with any language or library and which will lead to good quality code by default. There are five main concepts I will talk about here. Keep them in mind and writing good code should be a breeze.
Update: Mia Li was kind enough to offer a Chinese translation of this post here.
Keep your personal quirks out of it
You read some article which blows your mind with new tricks. Now you are going to write clever code and all your peers will be impressed.
The problem is that people just want to fix their bugs and move on. Your clever trick is often nothing more than a distraction. As I talked about in “Applying neuroscience to software development“, when people have to digest your piece of code, their “mental stack” fills up and it is hard to make progress.
Don’t personalize your work in ways that would require explanations.
Don’t code “your way”. Just follow the coding standards. This stuff is already figured out. Make your code predictable and easy to read by coding the way people expect.
Divide and conquer it
Complex code can often be clarified through modularization, and there are more ways to do this than just creating more functions. Storing the result of long conditionals into a variable or two is a great way to modularize without the overhead of a function call. This will even allow you to compose them into larger conditionals, or to reuse the result somewhere else.
The approach when breaking a problem down should be to have each section as focused as possible, affecting only local state, without mixing in irrelevant issues, and without side-effects if at all possible.Programming languages and libraries often come with their issues, and abstracting them away can help your code mind its own business. The Single Responsibility Principle is another example of how focused and localized code leads to good design.
German Federal Minister for Education and Research Johanna Wanka and his French counterpart Frédérique Vidal teamed up to announce the collaboration in alignment with the climate objectives set forth in France’s Make Our Planet Great Again campaign. A response to Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, French President Emmanuel Macron not only invited American scientists to pursue their research in France following Trump’s announcement that, but also charged the public at large with doing their part to fight climate change.
About the Initiative
Specifically, the collaboration will comprise a four-year research fellowship program for 50 high-level researchers of all nationalities to pursue work in three main areas: climate change; energy transition; and the earth system. France and Germany will contribute EUR 30 million and EUR 15 million in support of the initiative. In addition to boosting climate change research, the partnership also aims to promote interdisciplinary research.
This position is also shared by many European leaders, including European Council president, Donald Tusk who said at a news conference earlier this year, “The fight against climate change and all the research, innovation and technological progress it will bring will continue with or without the United States.”
As the country aims to boost Japanese culture abroad, securing the right talent is a critical part of the equation, say experts. Enter the requested changes to residency requirements. Currently, residency status is necessary for international graduates -- a status dependent on whether or not “they can make use of the specialized knowledge and techniques they acquired at vocational schools or universities in Japan,” says The Japan Times.
Broadening the Scope
However, residency status for working is limited to jobs requiring higher professional skills, a scenario which insiders say is detrimental to content industry workers who may have less complicated roles and responsibilities as they enter the workforce. Because of this, the government is evaluating whether to grant permissions lasting for up to two years as long as an employment plan is submitted.
In addition to changing residency requirements, the Japanese government is also considering extending the length of time international students can stay while seeking work in Japan. Currently, graduates have just six months to find jobs, but experts say this is not long enough given their simultaneous commitment to graduation projects.
Wondering about the timeline for these possible changes? The soonest the new residency requirements will go into effect will be late next year, following a research period in which the government will survey entities from both industry and academia to determine the best course of action.
The IMF, along with the World Bank, will hold its semi-annual meeting of global policymakers later this week.
Its call to arms on promoting more inclusive growth comes at an uncertain time for many richer countries.
The rise of populist politicians, such as Donald Trump, populist parties, such as the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD), and political shocks like Brexit have been blamed on voters becoming increasingly alienated from the ruling elites amid stagnating wages and rising house prices.
Over the same period, 53 per cent of countries have seen increased income inequality, the IMF said, and Latin America remains the most unequal in the world. The increase in inequality has been particularly acute in advanced economies but is spread across the globe.
“Heart disease and stroke are the most common reasons for premature death attributable to air pollution, and are responsible for 80 percent of cases,” the report says. Air pollution also contributes to other respiratory diseases and cancer and has non-lethal impacts on diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, pregnancy and brain development in children.
Hotspots of bad air
The two worst hotspots for PM2.5 pollution were Poland and northern Italy, where dozens of cities exceeded the EU’s annual mean limit of 25 micrograms of particles per cubic meter of air. “Poland and the Po valley have very bad pollution,” says Alberto González Ortiz, the report’s lead author.
The worst offender was the city of Krakow in Poland, where the PM2.5 value was 44 micrograms. Levels also reached 40 micrograms in Macedonia. More than a dozen Polish cities exceeded 30 micrograms, as did cities in northern Italy including Milan, Padua, Cremona, Brescia, Venice, and Turin.
In all, 7 to 8 percent of Europe’s urban population was exposed to PM2.5 concentrations that exceeded the EU limit. But when the World Health Organization’s stricter limit of 10 micrograms was used as a benchmark, between 82 and 85 percent of urban Europeans were exposed.
The UK saw an estimated 37,600 premature deaths from PM2.5 exposure in 2014. The worst hotspot was 16 micrograms, along with London’s Marylebone Road, followed by 15 micrograms on a roadside in Haringey, north London.
Overall, emissions are falling, but slowly, says Ortiz. He says the air would get cleaner faster if countries further limited their numbers of vehicles, burned cleaner fuels for heating and created more pedestrianized areas. Ortiz also recommends adapting infrastructure to suit cycling and promoting wider use of public transport.
After your initial run on A Tour of Go, you start thinking "Now, how can I make this language behave more like an object-oriented language...?" After all, you are used to that stuff. You want to make robust code. You want polymorphism.
"There has to be away!" You say, and you find struct embedding. It allows you to cleverly delegate methods from the enclosing object to the embedded object without having to duplicate code. Great!
Of course, this is not true. Struct embedding only allows you to delegate method calls. Even if it looks like you are doing polymorphic method dispatch, the relationship is not IS-A. It's HAS-A, so the receiver of the method call is not the enclosing object: The receiver is always the embedded object to which the method call was delegated to.
Stage 2: You believe goroutines will solve all of your problems
You were lured to Go by the promise that it will allow you to easily run the concurrent code, which, it does via goroutines! All you need to do is use the go keyword, and you can make pretty much any function or method call run concurrently. It is only natural, then, that you want to maximize your code's efficiency by making as much code to run in parallel. And because you hid this fact by making your function calls to create goroutines automatically, the caller does not even need to be aware of this.
Yeah, so it might make your code a bit more complicated but look, now everything runs concurrently!
Go allows you to create millions of goroutines without sacrificing much efficiency, but you really should not use goroutines just because you can. Concurrent code is harder to maintain and debug than code that just flows in a single thread. I mean, have you given serious thought to whether your shared objects are really synchronized properly when accessed from multiple goroutines at once? Are you sure the order of execution is absolutely correct? Have you really checked if those goroutines actually exit when they're no longer needed?
Goroutines are best used only when they are necessary, and unless your requirements dictate that you do everything in memory or some such, you should never abandon the use of good old multi-process models.
And finally, try NOT to spawn goroutines behind your users' back, especially if you are writing a library. Explicit calls to use go calls usually give the user more flexibility and power.
Goroutines take you only so far. Use them only when it really makes sense.
Stage 3: You believe that instead of object-oriented programming, interfaces will solve all of your problems
After being disillusioned that you cannot make your objects behave in a polymorphic manner, you suddenly realize the capabilities offered by interfaces. Interfaces allow you to describe APIs; there has to be a way to use this to write more robust code.
Interfaces do give you a lot of power, but it's not an end-all solution. It still does not provide true polymorphism in the sense of object-oriented programming. You are also limited by the fact that interfaces can only define the API, and you cannot associate any data with it.
Also, although there are legitimate cases where exporting only interfaces instead of concrete structs make sense, it really should not be your default mode of operation. Interfaces are best when they are small-ish (as opposed to describing an entire list of methods defined for an object). Also, if you are not careful, you will have to either write a lot of extra code to fulfill the interface or to write code that requires a lot of type-assertions.
Stage 4: You believe channels will solve all of your problems
After you spent a lot of time pondering how to bend Go to work your way, you are now looking for that missing piece that will make everything work your way. "Wait, there are still channels!"
Channels implicitly handle concurrent access correctly. You believe you should be able to solve many of the obstacles so far by cleverly using channels to handle synchronization, returning values (a la future/promises), and flow control with select-statements with various channels.
Stage 5: You now believe Go is not as powerful as people claim it to be
"Why?! Why is it so painful to write Go code? It doesn't allow me to write code the way I have been doing."
You are frustrated. No polymorphism. Concurrency is hard. Channels don't solve your problems. You don't even understand why Go exists. You feel like you've been stripped of all the nice tools and constructs that other languages provide.
You believe that more powerful tools to express abstract ideas are absolutely necessary. Go just doesn't cut it.
Go is decidedly opinionated. I come from a Perl background, and for a while I could not believe how limiting Go was. So yes, I understand if you become frustrated.
Stage 6: You realize that stages 1-5 were all just your imagination
Then it comes to you: You just didn't want to accept the Go way.
Everything starts to make sense.
In all seriousness, learning Go does require some unlearning. I had to unlearn object-oriented programming a bit, as well as embrace the fact that no matter how many useful tools the language may give you, writing concurrent code is just too hard for mere mortals. I also had to unlearn to use exceptions.
Once I decided to accept the functionalities and constructs as they are, writing Go code became much easier, and definitely much more fun.
Stage 7: You are now at peace
You have accepted the Go way. You now write everything, including what you would've normally used Perl/Ruby/Python for, in Go. You realize if err != nil no longer bothers you. You only use goroutines and channels when you must.
You are one with the Gopher. You feel its glorious chi, and cry when you realize its mercy for allowing your to write code in such a majestic language.

Most often it is believed that the first method is far better and comprehensive than the second method. Lisa Mitchell, the Customer Success Manager of Semalt, states that if you have IP addresses that are dynamically generated or if you are using a laptop or device of a coffee shop, then you should stop your own visits from being counted on the Google Analytics. Both of these methods have their own advantages and disadvantages and can be chosen based on your requirements.
Exclude your IP address
This method lets you set your Google Analytics in a better way. That will help you to improve the quality of your traffic, and you can stop receiving views from specific IP addresses or a range of IPs. However, this can be done only when you are using a laptop and are ready to adjust the settings from the same device. And if you leave for office or are outside your house, this method cannot give any benefit. In that case, you should try to use the second method. For excluding traffic by specific IPs, you should create custom filters that can analyze the quality of your traffic in a better way. Log into your Google Analytics account and click the settings option on the top right corner. Then you should press the new filter option and add information such as filter name, type of filter, IP address, and others.
Exclude traffic by Cookie Content
Lisa Mitchell, the Semalt Customer Success Manager, says when you have a website, your team is bound to be testing this and that. If at any time somebody from your team is running the development version of your web app with Google Analytics tracking code, then they're bound to bump into some annoying things.
For a start, localhost keeps showing up in the Referrers reports. Secondly, your website's metrics such as the bounce rate, number of page views, conversion rates and so forth. As it is, these metrics will be skewed because as the team member performs a test on the website, things get mixed up. You wouldn't want that, will you?
A quick fix
You can remedy this situation in a very easy way. In fact, you have three ways at your disposal. Regardless of your choice the fix only works for new visits. The existing data will remain tainted, and you cannot do anything about this.
Add an exclusion filter on Google Analytics
Adding an exclusion filter on your Google Analytics account is the simplest and easiest way to remedy the system from mixing up different metrics. You wouldn't even need intervention from the technical team. Here are some tips:
open your Google Analytics account then select 'Admin.'
own the view column click 'Filters'
set up a new filter by opting for 'New Filter'
create new 'Predetermined Filter,' which will exclude web traffic to 'localhost' host name.
Note that you may have to change the localhost name to whichever local host name your team uses. Better yet, if the development team happens to share your network, then you can exclude the entire IP range. This way, your metrics won't be jumbled. Simply set your filter to exclude 'traffic from IP addresses, ' and you're done.
This is a reasonable choice compared to messing up with Google Analytics filters. Just go to the tracking snippet and identify the property ID used to keep tabs on analytics. If you might have upgraded to Universal Analytics, then you'll bump into something like this: ga('create', UA-98765432-1', 'website.com').
Note that instead of example.com, you'll actually use your real domain. Fortunately or unfortunately, you'll have to be adept in technical jargon. For instance, you may have to use an if-statement somewhere on the code. Although there has been a mention of the process being simple, it requires writing new code.
If your website uses PHP language like the case of WordPress then you could edit the footer which coincidentally includes Google Analytics snippet. There is even the possibility that your server allows for web apps to run in development mode or in production. Whatever the case, you can never go wrong.
Once you have made these changes, there is need to see whether they are effective or not. Do a test a day or two later for confirmation. Choose an appropriate data range, one that does not include the days before the change.
They are also known as ghost referrals. Although they do not visit the site, they are seen in the analytics whilst spamming Google Analytics ID's. The spamming takes place in a random manner and is intended to trick the computer user into opening their referral sites. They are mostly of Russian origin.
These are the type of spams that are characterized by their crawling nature on the internet collecting information. It is advised to avoid visiting them because of their virus threat hence they should be blocked. Example of crawler spams is buttons-for-website spam.
Although legit Ð¸ots are not commonly seen in analytics, they occasionally spider around content in a bid to show in search engines.
These spam do not actually visit one's website but instead ping analytics account in an attempt to spam their targets. Search spam can be filtered thus preventing them from showing in the analytics account.
Measures of controlling spam
Although spams appear to link to websites, Russian spams do not actually engage the websites in which they are seen. The following is a list of some of the most common spam links namely:
Most of these links do not go to users' website but instead visit user ID's of Google Analytics users. Their links show up in analytic results which tempt Google users to visit their websites. Examples of such spams are darodar and ilovevitality.com. Even though spams do not visit the user's site, it is essential to block them from showing up in Google Analytics results. The reasons for the need to block spams are:
i. It is vital to have accurate data on the number of people that are visiting one's site so that effective analysis can be carried out. This information is important in determining the bounce rate and the presence of spams makes data collected for analysis inaccurate.
ii. The presence of spams negatively affect the rankings of search engines. The existence of spammers who are continuously developing new types of spams necessitate the existence of companies such as Misfit to combat the vice and make the running of small business smooth.
Referral spams can be combated using the TL checklist:
1. The bot Filtering Tool can be used to prevent bots from showing up in a Google Analytics account by clicking on the "View Settings" and selecting the "bot filtering" option.
2. All Russian spam URL's should be filtered by adding them to the referral exclusion list including the view filters option.
a) In the case of blocking referral spam, visit the Google Analytics account and select the "Filter" tool.
b) Select the "New Filter" option and input the domain name.
c) On the type of filter, select the custom option and select the Referral option.
d) Type the precise URL that you wish to block on the "Filter Pattern".
e) Procedure d above should be carried out for the same domain but on the "Filter field" option you should click the hostname.
f) The same process applies for search spam only that the "Filter Field" should be replaced with "Campaign Term" and the pattern is the legible wording verbatim.
3. It is however recommended that a report is made to Google if there are suspicions of malicious codes.
An electronic copy of a representative publication in climate change modelling, mitigation, adaptation and/or resilience on which the applicant is the lead and/or senior author

We know one thing that universities in France normally select Pakistani students in their first selection list of admissions. So, if you miss the first admission selection, then you can miss the Eiffel. SO you have o find the universities and asking there if they allow eiffel and apply there for admissions in first selection of admissions. So be a early and hard working bird to catch the fish (Eiffel Scholarship). Even most of universities do not require IELTS or TOEFL scores. You can belong to any major /field. You can apply for it. Almost every field in it.
I am also a learner yet of Eiffel, trying to update myself with your feedback. In sha ALLAH will be perfect in it soon. So, if anyone of you have got Eiffel or know anyone who has got eiffel. Let him/her get in contact with me. We shall arrange his or her lecture. Special request to current students in France

Procedure of their selection
1) You apply for admissions in French universities, who are taking students under Eiffel (Choosing one university for final selection)
***** Must try to apply in first session of admissions, which means you have to keep on checking french universities websites for first session of applications
2) French University that selects you, will nominate you as its Eiffel Scholarship candidate to French authorities (Campus France),French Authorities will give final decision of your selection
How to find universities under Eiffel ? They can be found out by any of the three ways below
3) a) Find the universities and courses in universities that are under effiel using google. write in google "Eiffel 2018 2019" or search in the database of French universities and emailing them and asking if they select the students under Eiffel
b) You can also use these two links , but again to confirm about these courses, you have to ask universities if they accept you under eiffel for that course

Foremost, everyone in business is a marketer. Most SaaS companies use content marketing techniques when starting the venture. It is, indeed, a great concept because one does not only publicize products but also educates prospective clients through various content. However, creating an excellent content that stands out from the range of SaaS startups is not easy. SEO can be useful in this regard if implemented well.
Secondly, there are thousands of SaaS startups. Research indicates that SaaS software is an ever-growing service in the marketing industry. According to Statista, steady growth is anticipated, and worldwide SaaS revenue will grow to 38 billion USD by 2018. It implies that many products will be available in the organic search for SaaS start-up businesses.
Thirdly, SEO is now an evolved concept. Like other digital businesses, SEO industry has changed a lot in a previous couple of years. This growth can be witnessed from backlinks to technical driven aspects and more SEO driven content activities.

This has the effect of making use of available customer base.
SEO skills enable one to be a thought leader. SaaS startup probably works on a product that is unavailable in the market yet. Presenting yourself as a thought leader in some subject matter is an opportunity to invent even more products because people will always need your expertise. To be recognized as a thought leader, it is important to be the first in organic search results.
Having SEO skills enables a business owner to hack sign-up rates with SEO. SaaS business trucks up important metrics to better understand customers and site. In addition to session durations and unique visitors, sign-up conversion is a significant performance parameter.

I would be happy to answer any questions for you. No Cost. No Strings.
Light is the single most important thing for you to consider. Obviously, if you wish to grow plants in your basement for instance, you will have to provide all the light yourself and you will need to provide a lot if you are to recreate the conditions of a summer’s day. Fortunately, modern horticultural lighting is more than capable of doing this in an efficient and cost effective manner.
One can start by assuming that you have no natural light whatsoever in your chosen growing area. Obviously, if you have a window or skylight, this will reduce the amount of light that you have to provide but in most cases, this is not especially significant. There are other problems associated with using natural light, such as the inability to control the hours of darkness. The easiest and most efficient way to grow plants indoors is to do it in a dark area and provide all the light yourself. For greenhouse growers, the need to use extra light is limited to the darker months of the year.
Another thing to consider under the heading of light is the level of reflection in your growing area. A well designed grow room will get the maximum benefit from the light that is used in it and it is of great importance to get the best reflection of available light.
Temperature is another important design parameter of your grow room and it is something that must be borne in mind from the beginning. Most plant species will grow most effectively in the temperature range of 20-28°C, the mid-twenties being optimal. It will not be difficult to maintain this sort of temperature in your room while the lights are on as they are a great source of heat as well as light. If temperatures should become too high, a simple extractor fan should serve to reduce them. This extractor can be easily linked to a thermostat to ensure that your room never reaches the high temperatures that can have a negative effect on growth rates. When your lights are off, however, you can expect a gradual decline in temperatures. In the colder parts of the year, they will drop well below the ideal growth range. Recent research has shown that night cycle temperatures are just as significant as day cycle temperatures in plant production and it is in fact the relationship between them that has most effect on the final shape and productivity of the plant. It is important to avoid large temperature fluctuations between the day and night cycles as this can lead to weak and poorly formed plants. It is ideal for most species to try and bring day and night temperatures as close together as possible and this is not as difficult as it sounds.
Humidity is another important consideration in grow room management. If it is allowed to get too high for prolonged periods, it will cause problems both in your room and among your plants. The main danger is the development of Botrytis or grey mould among the flowers or fruit. This organism thrives in conditions of high humidity and will quickly spread and ruin a crop. Plants of the melon family and strawberries are particularly susceptible to fungal diseases and should be provided with a dry environment. The cautious grower will always monitor the humidity in his grow room which is measured by another simple device called a hygrometer. This is a dial type instrument that can be mounted on the wall next to the Max-Min thermometer and will give a constant and accurate reading of humidity. The ideal humidity for normal plant raising would not be much above 50%. If it rises above this, the grower will normally operate his extractor fan until it has been reduced. To keep this potential problem under check, it is advisable to avoid leaving water on the floor which can then evaporate and raise humidity. Any water or nutrient solution that spills or overflows should be wiped up promptly and nutrient tanks should be covered at all times. Any water that is left exposed to the heat from your grow lights will rapidly evaporate and add to the humidity levels. Keep your greenhouse or grow room dry. Back To Top ↑
The fourth variable that needs to be taken into account at the design stage is the atmosphere or air in the grow room and it is here the grower is often faced with a dilemma. On the one hand there is a strong requirement for a continuous supply of fresh air. Growing plants need a constant supply of carbon dioxide to maintain growth. CO2 is present in normal fresh air at the rate of around 330 parts per million (ppm). If you try to grow plants in a closed and sealed room you will quickly run into problems. As the plants grow they will rapidly use up the available CO2 which can drop to less than a third of normal levels within one hour. At this point, plant growth will effectively cease. To maintain normal atmospheric levels of this essential gas, the grower would be advised to run an extractor continuously as well as providing an input point, such as an open door or window, for the fresh air to enter the room. The problem with this of course is that the extractor will reduce temperatures and the grower may not wish to run it any more than necessary to maintain temperatures in the desired zone. It may also not be convenient to leave a door or window open on a long term basis. Fortunately, modern technology has provided simple answers to the grower’s dilemma as carbon dioxide can be added to the atmosphere in the grow room which reduces the need for fresh air being brought in. CO2 can be introduced from bottles which can be rented from Esoteric Hydroponics, or it can be produced by burning propane.

First, understand that you no longer want to be just a millionaire. You want to become a multimillionaire.
While you may think a million dollars will give you financial security, it will not. Given the volatility in economies, governments and financial markets around the world, it's no longer safe to assume a million dollars will provide you and your family with true security. In fact, a Fidelity Investments' study of millionaires last year found that 42 percent of them don't feel wealthy and they would need $7.5 million of investable assets to start feeling rich.
This isn't a how-to on the accumulation of wealth from a lifetime of saving and pinching pennies. This is about generating multimillion-dollar wealth and enjoying it during the creation process. To get started, consider these seven secrets of multimillionaires.
No. 1: Decide to Be a Multimillionaire -- You first have to decide you want to be a self-made millionaire. I went from nothing—no money, just ideas and a lot of hard work—to create a net worth that probably cannot be destroyed in my lifetime. The first step was making a decision and setting a target. Every day for years, I wrote down this statement: "I am worth over $100,000,000!"
No. 2: Get Rid of Poverty Thinking -- There's no shortage of money on planet Earth, only a shortage of people who think correctly about it. To become a millionaire from scratch, you must end the poverty thinking. I know because I had to. I was raised by a single mother who did everything possible to put three boys through school and make ends meets. Many of the lessons she taught me encouraged a sense of scarcity and fear: "Eat all your food; there are people starving," "Don't waste anything," "Money doesn't grow on trees." Real wealth and abundance aren't created from such thinking.
No. 3: Treat it Like a Duty -- Self-made multimillionaires are motivated not just by money, but by a need for the marketplace to validate their contributions. While I have always wanted wealth, I was driven more by my need to contribute consistent with my potential. Multimillionaires don't lower their targets when things get tough. Rather, they raise expectations for themselves because they see the difference they can make with their families, company, community and charities.
No. 4: Surround Yourself with Multimillionaires -- I have been studying wealthy people since I was 10 years old. I read their stories and see what they went through. These are my mentors and teachers who inspire me. You can't learn how to make money from someone who doesn't have much. Who says, "Money won't make you happy"? People without money. Who says, "All rich people are greedy"? People who aren't rich. Wealthy people don't talk like that. You need to know what people are doing to create wealth and follow their example: What do they read? How do they invest? What drives them? How do they stay motivated and excited?
No. 5: Work Like a Millionaire -- Rich people treat time differently. They buy it, while poor people sell it. The wealthy know time is more valuable than money itself, so they hire people for things they're not good at or aren't a productive use of their time, such as household chores. But don't kid yourself that those who hit it big don't work hard. Financially successful people are consumed by their hunt for success and work to the point that they feel they are winning and not just working.
No. 6: Shift Focus from Spending to Investing -- The rich don't spend money; they invest. They know the U.S. tax laws favor investing over spending. You buy a house and can't write it off. The rich, in contrast, buy an apartment building that produces cash flow, appreciates and offers write-offs year after year. You buy cars for comfort and style. The rich buy cars for their company that are deductible because they are used to produce revenue.
No. 7: Create Multiple Flows of Income -- The really rich never depend on one flow of income but instead create a number of revenue streams. My first business had been generating a seven-figure income for years when I started investing cash in multifamily real estate. Once my real estate and my consulting business were churning, I went into a third business developing software to help retailers improve the customer experience.
Lastly, you may be surprised to learn that wealthy people wish you were wealthy, too. It's a mystery to them why others don't get rich. They know they aren't special and that wealth is available to anyone who wants to focus and persist. Rich people want others to be rich for two reasons: first, so you can buy their products and services, and second, because they want to hang out with other rich people. Get rich -- it's American.
One of my favorite diet plans (and one of the most popular) is the GM diet plan – or the General Motors diet plan (3).
Yes – the same general motors as the car manufacturer. I know, it’s weird, lets’ move on.
This GM diet plan works for all age groups, and people have lost up to 17 pounds in a single week by following it.
If you want to follow it, you have to be prepared. This is a strict diet plan – and it requires a lot of discipline on your part. If you want it to work, and you want to lose up to 17 pounds in a week, you’re going to have to have your mind right before you start.
How do you get your mind right? Well, first, you have to accept one very important point – the fastest way to lose weight is by NOT being hungry.
If you’re hungry, your craving for junk food will go through the roof. That’s going to undermine any diet or weight loss plan.
Therefore, you have to make sure to pick a plan that DOESN’T require that you go hungry – and the GM plan is it.
It’s a 7 day plan that will require discipline – but also help you hit your weight loss goals. Let’s start:
GM Diet Day 1
OK – this is the gateway to your diet, the door you step through – and therefore it’s the most important day. Treat it accordingly.
The first day of the GM diet is an all fruit day. That’s right, you heard me correctly – all fruit all the time.
