How to Select Zookada Vs FeedBurner Email Service

Couple of days back Feedburner had Integrated Blogger and now users were able to track the actual Subscribers to both Feedburner Feed and the Blogger Feed. Feedburner offers a great Feed service but somehow when it comes to Offering Email Service I particularly feel Zookoda has greater performance capability compared to Feedburner.

A good Combination of service would be to offer Feedburner RSS feed and at the same time offer Zookoda Email service on your Blog. With a limited number of Web users knowing what an RSS Feed is ?? it is perfectly easy for users to Subscribe using a Zookoda Email Service.

Zookoda was a small Blog broadcast service provider that was recently purchased by payperpost.com Zookoda is a free service that any one can use by filling a Registration form. Once you Register you can download the Subscription Form code and Embedd it in the Blog Site. Here is a Snapshot of the Subscription Form

Zookoda has some great features that i feel are missing in Feedburner. In Zookoda you have the option of adding subscribers by just adding their email addresses. You can also import subscribers on your own.

The other feature is that you can even schedule Multiple Broadcasts for a day. This feature far seems to be absent in Feedburner. Feedburner allows only once per day.

Zookoda even has a Report Feature where you can view information about your Email Post.

You can View a Pie-chart which would indicate the Number of Subscribers for the Email Post.

You can also view the number of subscribers who have opened your Email Post and the Number of Subscribes who have read your Email Post.

I particularly like this feature as this gives me a better knowledge about my subscribers. Feedburner is a good RSS feed service and probably needs to provide more options on the Email service to make it more Blogger friendly.

I would Post about Feed burner and Feedblitz RSS feed Service in the coming Posts. What are the benefits of using Feedburner or Feedblitz and finally end with a Comparison post Feedburner VS Feedblitz vs Zookoda.

Winace Compression Software Available in Standard and Plus Versions

Most of you are Familiar with the Zip Software Tool Winzip. Here is another amazing Piece of Software that has Better Compression Rate compared to Winzip.Winace by Comparison to WinZip has an amazing interface compared to Bland brown Winzip Interface.

The Blue background for the background kind of gives a cool look for the Interface. WinAce like its competitors is pretty small in size of about 2.65Mb in Size and installs in a Zip seconds. The Interface has Menus on the Top and the Explorer Section at the Bottom as Shown in the Screenshot below. The Icons are all pretty nicely stacked and with Wording below the icons make them even better.
Best Compression Rate for Video Files: I have used Winzip, Winrar and Winace Sotware and found out that the Compression rate for Winace far Exceeds that of Winzip and Winrar. So if you want to Compress Video Files than Winrar is the Best Zipping Software. Adding to that the Compression Rate of Winace is Much Quicker than Compared to Winrar and Winzip. Though Winace fails to impress me in the Text and Image Compression where the Performance of Winzip and Winace exceeds it.

But in reality with External Hard Drive Spaces in the range of Terabytes I would bother to compress text files but would Mind compressing Files that Occupy Enormous Space on the Hard Disk. Have you tried any other File Compression Softwares. Post in your Comments.

Ping Sites For a Blog,Which One Do You Use With Your Blog

Well if there is anything that you would get for Free that would be "Advice". I have a Question in My Mind that Does Pinging Sites really Work Good For Your Blog. Well the Answer Seems to be Ambivalent. What do you Think?.

I have been Using Sites Like Pingomatic, AutoPinger, Pingoat for a Couple of Days and have been Finding Traffic From Various Sites. A Pinger Service is Basically one that Would Notify a Number of Web Services and Blogs that an Update has Happened on Your Blog and It Needs to be Indexed For the New Updates. So the Crawlers Crawl and Index your Blog Leading to Increase in Popularity of Your Blog.

Pingoat is My Personal Favourite Pinging Service among the Three Ping Services that i use With my Blog. Pingoat is by Design a Neat, Simple and an Easy Service to Use. I also like Autopinger Feature that Shows the Ping Health Rate letting you Know at What rate your Ping would actually Help you in Getting Indexed and Crawled. The Higher the Percentage of Ping Quality the Better and Faster by the Crawler.

What Pinging Services have you been Using. I Would be Interested in Learning about Other Pinginig Services.If you like my post you can subscribe to my Newsletter for my Future posts.

Can Blogs Really Make Money. Here is Something to Learn

I have been an Regular Morning Reader of the Business Week and there was this article that really interested for a Complete Reading. This is what the Sub heading said..

"Cat pictures, gossip, tech talk, politics—there's lots of ways to rake in the dough online"

Have you heard of these names I Can Has Cheezburger, Boing Boing, Tech Crunch, Problogger ( My Favourite Blogger), Overheard in Newyork, Kottke, TalkingPointsMemo, Perez Hilton, Gothamist, Gofugyourself, Mashable, Michellemalkin, Hotair. If you are new to the Blogging World then all these names would sound Unfamiliar to you. If not You would have recongnized these as Top Bloggers in the Blogging World.

Here is the article in Business Week about the headline that i have posted above. The Article Discussed Mainly About HowMuch Money are the Top Bloggers Making Across the Word.
I had an argument with a Friend over whether "Blogs really Make Real Money". My Friend argued that Blogs Cannot Make Money and it is Just One or Two on Top who Really make the Money. I had argued that it is not that Difficult Provided you Put in the Effort and Ultimately you Would Make it to the Top.

Blogging is Something Done with a Passion and there is lot of Hardword Beyond it. Someone has started writting about Cats and Today they make a Couple of Thousand Dollars From What they have been writing as a Part Time Hobby. You need not be an Expert in a Field to Start a Blog. All you need an Energy to stay on and Learn from Others. As Problogger Says " Blogging is not a One Way Path It is a Constant Interaction and Exchanging of Opinions".

You cannot Become a Pro Blogger by just Writing some Posts every Other Day you want to and Expect the Profits to Grow. A Blog needs to be Consistent to Keep Readers Attracted to it. You Need to Make the Visitor Feel that He Wanted to Re Visit Your Blog. A Blogger Needs to Update the Blog Regularly to Keep the Loyalty of the Readers.Finally all it Matters is "CONTENT" "CONTENT""CONTENT""CONTENT".

Content Is the King when it comes to the Success of a Blog and the Content needs to be Good. Well than the Question from My Friend was that " Iam Not a Good Write and I cannot Write Articles". I Told him No One is a Good Writer and you can Find your Groove by Learning From Others. It takes Patience and Persistence to Turn Yourself from an Amateur Blogger to a Pro Blogger. It Takes Time and Time and You need to be Patient to Get to the Top. You cannot Become an Over Night Pro Blogger.

Blogging World is of Wonderful World and Once you are In you will Love it. The Best Part of Blogging is that Bloggers Grow at an Exponential Rate Provided you put in the Effort and are Consistent in Your Posts. Dont be Dissapointed that You are Earning Only $0.10Cents/Day. One day you Will Make a Good Amount of Dollars With Your Adsense Blog. It all Takes Time.

So the Next Question from my Friend was that How do i Find Content. The Best Solution for that Would be "Read " "Read""Read " "Read""Read " "Read". Nothing can beat this opinion. At the Same Time Learn From Other Bloggers like Style of Blogging, Ad placement, Comments, Opinions etc. Be the First to Blog about a Product, Solution and Traffic would Automatically appear on Your Blog.

I really Dont Believe in Search Engine Optimization and Page Ranking. If you Have the Content the Search Results are Going to Point to Your Blog Posts. Well What Do you think ?? Can Blogs Make Money for You too. Post your Comments.

Google Adsense in Regional Languages like Tamil

I was checking my Gmail today and something stuck my eyes. It was the Google Ad on Top of my MailBox in Tamil( A Regional Language in India).

Google seems to have understood that one cannot rise in India Advertisment market with English Ads. With about 18 or more Languages in India and more than 50 dialects Googles seems to making an emphasis on Regional Market rather than as a whole country. India seems to be the Hot spot or the Buzz for Google's campaign in Regional Languages.

This also seems to be a great news for advertisers who campaign AdWords across the web. By providing this option of advertising in Various languages Google seems to have increased the specificity of Adwords across websites or Geographic locations.

But as of now i haven't seen a website that seems to publish AdWords or Advertisements in Hindi or Tamil. Have you come across a website that published Ads in Regional Languages. I would be interested in regional Ads performance. Post your comments

Replace your Fax Machine and use Internet Fax

A couple of days back i had written an article about " How to Send Free Fax From your PC" using Faxzero website. Faxzero is a very good website if you are a low end user in terms of sending your faxes and receiving them. When there is a restriction that you cannot receive Faxes from Faxzero website.

VLC Player Windows Vista: Do You Too Have Trouble Issues

I have been getting some traffic for the VLC Media Player posts that i had posted earlier a couple of days back. When i looked at the Traffic keyword that let people to land on my page. Everyone were looking for "VLC player Vista" and I too was one of them to face the issue. VlC player indeed has trouble working in Windows Vista(32bit mode or 64bit mode). I had a geeky friend with whoom i worked out in resolving the issue.

VLC player Under Windows Vista:
VLC player has been working fine for a couple of users while it has malfunctioned for others. Either the Audio plays with out the Video or Vice versa or Doesn't play at all. So by experience from some of my friends who have used Windows vista i would suggest

For those interested in why VLC player isnt working with Windows Vista is that Vista uses a New graphics Interface DirectX10. and VLC player is not compatible to this Video Module by default and so there is the incompatability. It seems to that both the Vista Team and VLC player had missed this minute detail while designing.

So the solution first depends on what graphics card do you have on your System.. Might be an Nvidia or ATI graphics card. Again i emphasis please Step 2)upgrade your Graphic Driver software to the latest.you can download it (Nvidia).

Step3) Open your VLC player and Scroll Down to Setting -----> Preferences Menu
Step4)Once you Click on Preferences a menu like below would open up on the screen. On the Left would be the screen as Below.. Open the Video Menu option for some more submenus. Mean while if you look at the right side bottom of your screen you would see the screenshot as shown in figure 2. As pointed by the arrow Tick the Advanced Options menu as in figure 2



figure 2



Step5) Once you have choosen the Video menu it would open up to three more sub menus.
  • Filters
  • Output Modules
  • Subtitles/OSD
Step6) Choose the Output Modules option in the Sub menus as shown in the screenshot below



Step7) For "Windows Vista 64 bit mode " mode you can select Windows GDI" option. Restart your PC and you are ready to go. For "Windows Vista 32 bit mode " use the DirectX option to work. If these options dont work for you.. You can try other options in the menu like the Windows GDI ouput, Open GDI output format.

I have tried the Windows GDI and the DirectX option and both have worked for me. Let me know which mode has worked for you. Post your comments.
