10 Ways To Access Blocked WebSites


Websites like facebook , twitter  and other social networking sites are generally blocked in schools, colleges and offices . There exist some tricks by which you can bypass  the restrictions and access blocked sites , the most obvious is the use of proxies or Anonymizer websites . But using proxies doesn’t always works as they gets blocked by firewall as well . Here I am listing some other methods to access blocked contents .

1. Use IP instead of URL

Each website has its equivalent ip address . This method works best when blocked sites are stored as a list of URLs  .You can use  ip address  to access blocked contents . For example to access facebook you can use  ip address 69.63.189.11 in your address bar . You can use ip-address.com to find the ip address of other websites .

2. Use Google Cache

All major search engines like Google yahoo and Bing stores cached pages of websites themselves . You can access blocked websites by viewing their  cached copy on search engines  .

3. Translations services

Translation services like Google Translate , translate a website from one language to another and  display the translated results on their own page .You can access the blocked website by re-translating  blocked url using such online translation services .

4. Retrieve web pages via Email

Web2Mail is a free service that sends any websites  into your inbox. All you need to do is send an email to www@web2mail.com with the URL as subject title.

5. WayBack Machine

Wayback machine periodically keeps a copy of almost all websites on the internet  from the date they have started . You can access your blocked site by fetching its latest copy from archives .

6. Screen-Resolution.com

Screen-Resolution.com allows you to view any website in a different resolution . This could be an interesting tool to access blocked websites .

7. Google Mobile Search

Google Mobile Search displays a web page as if you are viewing it on a mobile  phone .You can use it to access blocked websites but javascript and css will be disabled .

8. Redirect with Short URL service

Short URL service are used for converting a long URL in a shorter one . You can convert your blocked url into a shorter one and use  it to access blocked websites . This trick dont always works . The two popular url shortening service are bit.ly and adf.ly

9. USB Browsing

You can use this method if you have access to usb port  ,you can load usb with your own portable Firefox, with the  portable Tor plugin  or you can directly use  tor-firefox .

10.  Proxy Websites

This is the generally known method to access blocked websites . There are thousands of online proxies you can use to surf anonymously or to access blocked websites . Here is 90+ Proxy Websites To Access Blocked Websites

53 Promotional Websites To Gain Traffic Quick And Easy


Time passed, and I needed to update my article, add more links, delete old ones because I have been promoting EVERY article in these sites. Now this promotional article consists of 70 sites, but again I wasn’t sure how all links work – I mean how much traffic they return. And now you will hear why this article is so outstanding and extremely valuable for every design-related blogger! Since I’ve been submitting all my article on those sites this whole time, I have also very precise statistics based on several months.

Now I completely reviewed whole article and here TOP 53 sites are arranged in ascending order – from the most valuable websites to less ones. Unique visit count and information is based on my Google Analytics latest 3 months statistics. At the end I added several new and unverified but promising promotional websites.

Needless to say I will update this article regularly, so be sure to bookmark it for later reference! This is really assured list because I’ve tested it and I can tell – these sites really deliver impressive traffic! If you need that traffic – go ahead and take it now! I give you tools, you just need to realize them in the same way I did!

1. StumbleUpon* ( 160,154 unique visits)

StumbleUpon is no different – you need a lot of friends, good network to bring traffic. But if you have that all, again it totally pays off 10 times. You should have few powerful stumbler friends as well, who could discover or maybe even share your stories – returning you with easy traffic in that way!

2. Digg* (80,214 unique visits)

Certainly not easy traffic, but when you get the first time of Digg FrontPage you will never doubt it’s power and beautiful traffic income source. Building community takes a lot of time, so be sure you build contacts with few power diggers in your niche.

3. SmashingMagazine + Noupe (74,494 unique visits)

*Updated: in the next day, when I published this article SM and Noupe took off their user news and now there are only SmashingNetwork news in sidebar, so for most of us, this traffic isn’t available more.

Since now SM owns Noupe, their design news are now tied together. This number is not so accurate because I am on SmashingNetwork and get traffic from their features as well, but certainly worth submitting – 2 in 1!

4. Twitter* (22,119 unique visits)

Your First Blog Post – What to Write


You’re ready to make your very first blog post but not quite sure what to say? Maybe you figure since blogging seems to be so casual you can post whatever your heart desires and not be overly concerned. If nothing more it will at least get the ball rolling for you.

Well actually you could post whatever you want. On the other hand you may be serious about doing something constructive with it like building a list of loyal subscriber’s who share a common interest.

The point here is if you have a definite direction or purpose for your new blog you should treat your first post much like an introduction to a new friend.

Here are 4 key elements you will want to include in your first blog post.

1) Introduce Yourself

Here’s your opportunity to give your readers a little insight into who you are. Share with them your interest, business experience, other personal experiences that may be of interest to them and relevant to the theme of your site. Inform your readers of any family or pets you may have and of what importance they may have to you and why. Share pictures if you’ve got them. After all one picture is worth a thousand words. Your readers will appreciate this.

You want your readers to become familiar with you while also gaining their trust.

2) What is Your Reason for Blogging

Now you’ll want your readers to know and understand your purpose or motivation for blogging. Make your intentions clear as to what nagging questions, dilemmas, or passions you plan to address. You want them to feel the anger, frustrations, passions, or enthusiasm you feel and the commitment you have to your blogging efforts.

3) What you Will be Blogging About

Your readers will want to know what to expect when they visit your site. What direction you’ll be taking on the stated theme and how you intend to address the issues of this subject matter. Will this just be an online ranting station or do you intend to take a more constructive, tactical and problem solving approach in addressing the topic at hand.

4) Encourage Comments

You immediately want to foster an atmosphere of community and involvement for your readers. Commenting and reader participation is a major factor in the growth and popularity of blogging. Build upon this by encouraging comments, disagreements, or criticisms from visitors and making it easy for them to do so. Make available your contact information (any of which is comfortable to you) but make it clear you are accessible to them.

Be sure to clearly state your comment policy so as to keep this area under control and constructive for both the blog owner and its readers.

Realizing that your first blog post is an introduction to your readers and including these 4 key elements in your initial post will give you a solid start for your new blog.
