Brute force and specific search terms in the ad-words campaigns.

It all really depends what for and the context, but yeah this, keep it all relevant!

Also SSL certificates and relevant meta-tags help.

Oh and site-compression (look it up if you're using a cms, it's hidden somewhere) and minimizing overall loading times help.

And that's the worst practice!

Like, it might seem hard to crack, but once it's cracked it's cracked, like for real.

Decrypting a hash by brute-force may take a LONG time, but with a 'obscure' backdoor it might be done quicker, but with that backdoor in place all the 'solvers' would see is an easier way to find opening (easier than brute-forcing).

It's like having a very difficult obstacle course to get to a JACKPOT... A lot more people are going to get through that obstacle course than randomly winning it with a lucky ticket.

As far as the month of Jesus' birth, it can be inferred to be summer or fall. Combining inferences from when shepherds would likely be in the fields and working backward from Zechariah's priestly service (John the Baptist's father) and its connections to Jesus' birth, one arrives at a likely date of mid-September to early October. This would suggest the conception of Jesus might have been in December, but not his birth

Is this not stuff people get in school? Wasn't America once opposed to Christmas for it being a heathen-fest at one point? It must be a shock to find out there are no pine-trees in the sandbox The Christ roamed :p

A warning (sort of): When saidit grows it might take up too much space/time to search the comments.

As I (And BEWARE, just me) see it, it;s about the posting to other sites mostly and when someone thinks 'hey that's for me' they will see he comments. For example having the ability to search the comments for 'the' is a waste of computational power(which includes time).

A sitemap for subs, a thing to consider, perhaps an update once a month (or every 2 weeks, that's the time limit right? maybe one week, every sunday).

EDIT: maybe: if you are on ones profile, serch only their comments for terms, take up a lot less time and might be just what people want.

The hardest part is making them look at their own traffic (increase/decrease) depending on the strategy (and depending on their branch, should you check it over the week, month or quarterly).

I am pretty out of the game, but my experience is the greyed out text under the search result changes a lot. Now this was a webshop cms (OLD) had to be altered to accommodate to that. (I believe that's a specific meta-data you can input upon specific articles).

Our search results were [Title: Article name] {greed out: specific information that was relevant to buyers (expert buyers)}

For example a stone:

[Brick: Grey stone, baked]

(URL)

{perfect for building a wall}

Depending on the content the {} values are more reasuring for Buyers before clicking and checking it out, This is my experience in a niche market in The Netherlands (not in stone).

I don't have any Idea what those meta-tags were anymore (i really believe it was some meta-thingie) that secured that greyed-out area, but I'm sure you can find that out ;)

EDIT: By {} info I mean, specific technical info for the experts, so not 'great for keeping out mexicans' but something like {bla bla bla density, morter used, something something techical stone related}. AKA, info for the nerds!

I know from almost 20 years ago you can set up your site to allow or deny their spiderbots

No, you can't. robot.txt only stop 'lawful' ones. Blocking spiders the hard way is... hard (if you click 20 posts in new tabs to read, you can be a spider to an arbitrary spider-blocker, if not I {unlawful spiderbot} will just search up to 20 articles posted every [insert certain amount of time]).

Last I did something with it, load time might be even a bigger deal in the game for 'ranked the same at meta level', comprising the pages (and therefor decreasing the load time) improved 'my' (what i worked for) web-shop above competitors. [Though it was the Dutch market and pretty niche (no, not sexual) products].

'we' opted out of the ad-words and google-search campaigns and 'our' improving of meta game and (presumably) loadtime gave us more traffick than the ads without enhancements. (A lot of people know to ignore the search-engine ads when searching)

Saidit.net — Dec 19, 2018 — New Saidit Android App Released by magnora7 in SaidIt

[–]Mnemonic 3 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 0 funny4 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Noticed it’s pretty prominent in the F-Droid 'newest' tab!

Also when choosing the 'use tor' setting (under Network in Settings) It stop working and throws up ‘illegal action by user’ kind of error. (I'm on the dutch version, if needed I'll check it out in english sometime). It's a red block message instead of loading any page.

Now the app does load up Orbot when openend with this setting and it loads untill a connection with the tornetwork is made before the error even loads.

There are some 'reddit' legacy mentions, one in my error, but iirc some more. (Sorry don't really take extensive notes in public transport :p)

Apple stock loses 7%, Apple freezes stock trading for 20 minutes under guise of "upcoming news" by magnora7 in finance

I might have 'heard' the upcoming news on the radio: In The Netherlands there was a study by civilian/government group about facial recognition being easily decrypted by using a photo of the user. But at the end of the news report about that item they said: The new iphone (not mentioning WHICH, like is that the 1000 one or the shittier one? what?) and the new Samsung (again WHICH!?) were 'safe'.

I'll tell you NO! we have 3d scanning techniques I used in projects over 5 years ago and now they are hand held, I swipe a (lookd like one) Iron (for flattening clothes) by your face/head and BOOM I have a 3d image including color of your head (unless you have a very large {lengthy in height} head).

This 3d and photo information is enough to unlock phone and high end laptops (which feature better software/hardware).

If you have sensitive information on your phone, Use a PIN and consider local encryption of files before facials!

Jordan Peterson Announces Debate with Slavoj Zizek by Mnemonic in Philosophy

Slavoj would wreck JP on his charlatanism considering words like postmodern, marxism, capitalism and wisdom alone. But I kinda hope JP doesn't get too clamped down on his 'below-highschool level'-knowlegde about history, economics and philosophy and doesn't get anal about words like he did on his first Sam Harris podcast. I would like them to go after sniff As Peterson likes to cough, snifff call it, capitol T, truth.

Talking about Slavoj's mugshot (In all honesty he just looks like a normal person): Does Peterson have 'tv-makeup' on in this vid?

We have AA and AA-like support groups across the Western World, we need that for these kind of people. Therapy (which is advised by the doctor from 'my 600lb life' -series) is as crucial for these people as it is for alocholic or other drug addicts.
