If you are tired of twitter then you can try Facebook which is also one of the best place to promote or sell your affiliate products to the people. If your’e planning to sell some huge products then Facebook is the best place but it is not that easy as it sounds.

How to Sell Affiliate Products Online using Facebook ?

Selling an affiliate product in Facebook need’s some technique and if you are only good at using graph search of Facebook then this will be a piece of cake for you.

For example if I’m planning to sell an online book for affiliate commission , say “A hacking book” from the affiliate network Flipkart then I usually follow the below steps :

  1. Grab the Affiliate link form the Flipkart store and then save it in a notepad.
  2. Go to the Facebook graph search and type in “People who like Hacking Tips and Tricks and are my friends“. Here “Hacking tips and tricks” is a page name and I used that page name because it is easy to sell products to people who are already liking hacking related stuffs. Next I want to target my friend and so i gave the query “And are my friends“. This will bring up the list of people to whom you have 50% of chances of selling those books.

  3. You can use various queries like this on Facebook and also filter the results from the right side given option.

  4. Say for example I want to sell a wedding ring then I would prefer to filter their relationship status to “Engaged”  or “Dating” which can give you accurate results to whom you can sell the products by convincing them.
  5. If you are planning to sell huge amount of Affiliate products like say “Batman costume” then I would advice you to go with Facebook paid promotion. In paid promotion you can filter your post reach to only those people who like “Batman” or whatever filters you like.

Trick to Find Admin URL of Any WordPress Website

WordPress is the major platform which bloggers use and also it is known for its vulnerabilities & bugs. There are are many security issues still persist in WordPress which has to be fixed before any one could use it for illegal purpose. One such issue is finding the admin URL of the WordPress dashboard. To provide security to the WordPress website every admin would have changed the admin URL path so that no one can access it without knowing the actual path. But still there is a small bug using which you can find the admin URL path that is kept secret to the people in the web.

When a site’s admin panel login URL is changed it would redirect you to the 404 error page when you try to access the default Admin path that is “www.xxxxxxx.com/wp-admin“. If a person is able to identify this login path then it would become easy for him to get access to the site. I would recommend you to have a strong password so that it could not be easily cracked. Thanks to Karan Vyas for bringing this bug into my concern.

I personally recommend you to use hostgator hosting with hostgator maximum discount in 2014 from here.

Trick to Find the Admin URL path of a WordPress Site

Note : I do not recommend you to use this trick for a bad purpose and this is only to educate you, I do not encourage you to try this method to harm any site and I’m not responsible for your actions by any chance.

1. Write down the WordPress website for which you want to find the admin path. Let’s take the site “Shoutmeloud” for example.

2. When you try the default path www.shoutmeloud.com/wp-admin then it would redirect you to the default page mostly.

3. When the login PHP file is called using its full name then the admin panel does opens.

4.  Now try www.shoutmeloud.com/wp-login.php and see the magic. (This works for any wordpress sites)

find admin path any wordpress website

One more thing is that when you get the login panel of any website using this trick try to enter some random username and password so that you will find their exact changed  admin path of their website. In the below example “Labnol” website’s Admin URL has been found like the screenshot shown below.

admin path any wordpress website

I would recommend you to secure your WordPress password in order to stay away from the people who are trying to screw up your WordPress website. Maintain a strong password by adding numbers, capital letters and special characters to your password.

To prevent this vulnerability completely then you need to prevent people form getting access from your .htaccess file.

How to Improve your Website’s Speed

There are few tricks that i used to follow on my website to increase website speed and let me share those tips to you as well.Before getting into these tricks do know about your websites speed using Pingdom.

Making CSS as an External File

CSS refers to Cascading Style Sheet and these are very essential scripts for the websites visualization.If you have plenty of CSS codes on your website then your website will take more time to load.By making these CSS as external you can considerably bring down the size of your website and naturally your website’s speed will get increased.

To make a CSS codes as exernal follow the procedure below as i mentioned.

Before you make any changes to your website it is always good to take a backup of your website.Now to make the CSS file as an external one you can cut the entire CSS code between

.  We are going to call this file externally and so you need a hosting service to host your CSS file.Google provides Google drive which allows you to host your files for free of cost.

Open a notepad in your computer and paste the code that you have copied earlier.Now save the notepad file as something.css

Login to your Google drive and upload the CSS file to your account.Click on the uploaded link and make it as “Public” by changing the sharing settings.

Copy everything between the docs.google.com/file/d/ and /edit?usp=sharing.This is your unique ID which specifies the destination of your CSS file.Note down the unique key which we will be using it in the next step.

Now we need to call this file from where we have cut the code.To call a CSS file you need to use the below code.

You can directly call your CSS file from Google drive by typing the href path as “www.googledrive.com/host/YourUniqueID

Replace your unique id in the above code with your code that you have copied in the previous step.Now your link must look something like the below image.

Reducing the Image Size

If your header image occupies a large space then it is better to avoid that image or reduce the quality a bit to minimize the size of the image occupies in your website.Whenever some one is visiting to your website header image is the first loaded content and if the size is more than 2 or 3 MB it would eat their data usage as well as takes more time to load.So reducing the siz can be helpful and to reduce the size without losing quality you can try smush.it website which is a product of yahoo.

If you are a blogger and have a habit of uploading large sized images and then changing the size of the image inside the article , well then you are doing it wrong.Never do it because whenever the webpage is loaded it loads the entire image along with the webpage and only then the image gets re-sized to the position that was set by you.It does affects the webpage’s speed and i would suggest you to upload the image with the proper size inside every article.

Making Javascript codes as external

Javascript and Jquery are very important for a website to make actions on the webpages.If your website is dumped with javascript then your website will become very slow like a tortoise.To overcome this issue you need to call the java files externally so that they don’t affect the page’s speed.It is similar to the one we have done to the CSS files.
Always remember to add the javascript either between the tags or after the tag and do not place it else where.To make the javascript as an external one upload the script on the google drive.Make the file as shared “Publicly” and copy your unique ID.
To call an javascript externally you can use
