Clever Google Tricks


If you are on the hunt for free desktop wallpaper, stock images, WordPress templates or the like, using Google to search your favorite social media sites is your best bet. The word “free” in any standard search query immediately attracts spam. Why wade through potential spam in standard search results when numerous social media sites have an active community of users who have already ranked and reviewed the specific free items that interest you. All you have to do is direct Google to search through each of these individual social media sites, and bingo… you find quality content ranked by hundreds of other people.
Examples:
site:digg.com free “desktop wallpaper”
site:reddit.com free “wordpress templates”
site:del.icio.us free “stock images”
site:netscape.com free “ringtones”
site:stumbleupon.com free icons

 Google for Music, Videos, and Ebooks – Google can be used to conduct a search for almost any file type, including Mp3s, PDFs, and videos. Open web directories are one of the easiest places to quickly find an endless quantity of freely downloadable files. This is an oldie, but it’s a goodie! Why thousands of webmasters incessantly fail to secure their web severs will continue to boggle our minds.
Examples:
Find Music: -inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(wma|mp3) “Counting Crows”
Find Videos: -inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(mpg|wmv) “chapelle”
Find Ebooks: -inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(pdf|doc) “george orwell 1984″

Bonus Material:
Here is a list of my favorite Google advanced search operators, operator combinations, and related uses:
link:URL = lists other pages that link to the URL.
related:URL = lists other pages that are related to the URL.
site:domain.com “search term = restricts search results to the given domain.
allinurl:WORDS = shows only pages with all search terms in the url.
inurl:WORD = like allinurl: but filters the URL based on the first term only.
allintitle:WORD = shows only results with terms in title.
intitle:WORD = similar to allintitle, but only for the next word.
cache:URL = will show the Google cached version of the URL.
info:URL = will show a page containing links to related searches, backlinks, and pages containing the url. This is the same as typing the url into the search box.
filetype:SOMEFILETYPE = will restrict searches to that filetype
-filetype:SOMEFILETYPE = will remove that file type from the search.
site:www.somesite.net “+www.somesite.net” = shows you how many pages of your site are indexed by google
allintext: = searches only within text of pages, but not in the links or page title
allinlinks: = searches only within links, not text or title
WordA OR WordB = search for either the word A or B
“Word” OR “Phrase” = search exact word or phrase
WordA -WordB = find word A but filter results that include word B
WordA +WordB = results much contain both Word A and Word B
~WORD = looks up the word and its synonyms
~WORD -WORD = looks up only the synonyms to the word

Compress Javascript and CSS Files Using PHP


Enhance your Javascript and CSS resources:

I have been doing some web applications lately, and wanted to compress my Javascript and CSS files so that page loads are quicker and also the files are cached at all times.

So i thought to myself, that we could truncate the JS and CSS files by removing the unwanted spaces and characters.

So i began writing a script that does the following:

  1. Reads JS or CSS files(s) from a particular folder called either js or css.
  2. Removes all the unwanted characters and blank spaces.
  3. Creates a new file in a new directory called js_cache or css_cache.
  4. Wallla!! we have done it, you have successfully reduced the file file size.

The script will allow you to manage easily your Javascript and CSS resources and to reduce the amount of data transferred between the server and the client.

Performances:

We can say that the performance is better but not the best, but it works.

You would see a slight reduce in time between the server and the client.

Restrictions:

In CSS files there are no problems, but in case of Javascript there may some problems where single line comments are used like ‘// comment ‘.

Therefore always use multi line comments like /* comment */ if you want to use this script

Requirements:

  1. Create a folder for you project
  2. Dump all the js files in js folder and css files in css folder
  3. Then create two more folders js_cache and css_cache
  4. Copy and paste this script in the project directory
  5. Edit the script by changing the constant FILE_TYPE as js or css only
  6. Run the script
  7. New files will be created in js_cache and css_cache
  8. Wow, its done now use these file instead of the original one

ALL THE BEST…

HAPPY SCRIPTING…..

Basic AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML)


Ajax, sometimes written as AJAX (shorthand for asynchronous JavaScript and XML), is a group of interrelated web development techniques used on the client-side to create interactive web applications or rich Internet applications.

With Ajax, web applications can retrieve data from the server asynchronously in the background without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page.

Secure PHP Applications (PHP Security)


To understand PHP security better let us first understand what is PHP and Security

Security is a process, not a product, and adopting a sound approach to security during the process of application development will allow you to produce tighter, more robust code.

(PHP Hypertext Preprocessor) A scripting language used to create dynamic Web pages. With syntax from C, Java and Perl, PHP code is embedded within HTML pages for server side execution. It is commonly used to extract data out of a database and present it on the Web page

PHP is a powerful scripting language for building web applications, and also one of the easiest ways for hackers to gain access to your web server. Developers need to understand how their scripts can be exploited in order to protect them.

PHP is widely used in many high-end applications that maybe a Web Based (Internet) or and Intranet Applications. We can say that from the total PHP in Web Based (Internet) Applications : 80% and Intranet Applications:20%.

As IBM as suggested few basic principles that we could follow to make our website secure and guard our application from any vulnerabilities:

Validate input
Guard your file system
Guard your database
Guard your session data
Guard against Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities
Verify form posts
Protect against Cross-Site Request Forgeries (CSRF)
  1. Validate input
  2. Guard your file system
  3. Guard your database
  4. Guard your session data
  5. Guard against Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities
