Johnny Stork7,288Spirituality & Self Development CircleWe all strive towards various personal, professional and for many, spiritual goals in life. In our increasingly crowded and interconnected planet, we are often reminded of how each of out lives intersect and how each of us share many of the same values and needs. Many of these shared values and shared needs included the welfare of others, the welfare of the entire planet and the welfare of all living creatures.One way to think of what it means to be "spiritual" or concerned with "self" development is simply to be concerned with something, or someone, beyond yourself, beyond the personal. Holding a transpersonal world-view.The people in this circle share these values, these interests in developing personally, professionally and spiritually for the sake of all people as well as themselves. I am honoured to share this circle of humanitarian, compassionate, learned and transpersonally inclined friends. #transpersonalpsychology   #spirituality   #selfdevelopment   #positivepsychology  2014-02-05 00:55:3849011616

Insanity came to Chrome...

Windows (for now, my laptop hackintosh awaits arrival of wireless card from fleaBay).  Open Chrome: 20 processes, rapidly rising to 22 using half a bloody Gig for a single web page (this one).  Well actually 600M.  It's gone up a bit meanwhile...
Firefox?  174M for the same page.  Roughly similar addons, but there are a few differences.

Is there a soon-to-be-announced Google tie up with Crucial?

Oh, and don't get me on the newly removed session recovery.  Since forever I've restored work in progress using the little menu on new tab page:  Restore 12 tabs etc...  Improved Chrome?  Gone entirely.  Recently closed is entirely empty across sessions.

So go pick 'em out one-by-one from history then?  If you can remember...

How I love improvements and progress.

Google Immaterial Design
So Google are the only people on the planet who look at Microsoft forcing a mobile phone OS onto the desktop and think "what a great idea".  That was all about consistency across views.
No one in the world still uses a desktop or laptop differently to a mobile or tablet apart from me, or wishes to carry on doing so?

Wow, I think I just became a Luddite :)

To action the transaction it wanted to call me (for security), except the mobile on file was obsolete and the landline I was nowhere near.  No alternatives were available - so we log into Paypal...

※  No alternative ways of authorising the transaction available
※  I can add and remove phone numbers, so I remove the obsolete mobile number and add the current one.
※  Go back to the transaction and I can now use the newly added number to authorise it.
※  Next morning I get a call from Paypal on the newly added number to helpfully tell me that as part of the mission to prevent fraud could I confirm I'd like for the two transactions of yesterday to be authorised.  Sure.
※  No attempt to validate ME took place beyond the awareness of what the two outstanding transactions of the previous day were, and even then only in broad brush terms.

Now at this point I decided that pointing out to chap on phone just how broken this procedure was probably wasn't going to help me get my stuff in a timely manner, so I bit tongue and kept quiet (with difficulty).

There's no internal flag in the system to say a number is too recent to serve as automatic validation.  ie using a number added after a transaction to validate said transaction is suspect to say the least.

Even the common sense point of view was absent  that their fraud-prevention team should have seen the number was added to their systems less than eight hours previously - perhaps this is not the best route to confirm a transaction 8.5 hours previously.  *That's fundamentally broken*

Shouldn't these two paths differ?  There needs to be another factor - using a number (even if not newly added) for both automatic verification and human verification later is at severe risk of breaking if a phone is stolen.

So to defraud Paypal execute a transaction, add a new number and Paypal will then use that number for all verification of that transaction.  Twice.  Useless unless you happen to be a thief.___

Erm That's Not Nearly Enough...
Why's this campaign not at least including all the five eyes nations?
The leaks have clearly shown that the UK is up to its neck in these activities and assist the NSA to spy on Americans (which they're not allowed to do) by getting GCHQ to do it for them.

So, in the scenario that US law changes notably and the NSA can't do many of the things it has, surely it will get all the same data only this time all under the line-item "data from intelligence partners (GCHQ)"?

So for a US citizen or huge US corporation absolutely nothing changes.

New Ad Format?...

Intended to increase sidebar ad clicks?

I am getting this new highlight in UK searches today.

There's no shaded background at all, and once you've scrolled the page a tiny amount the sidebar 'ad' disappears behind the map.

What strikes me is how much more obviously the top ads are called out as ads - on a laptop (especially cheap ones) the background beige shading was usually almost imperceptible.

Be interesting to see if there's any difference in clickthrough between top and sidebar ads - as it seems to me click through rate on the sidebar could go up.  Might also drive some extra traffic to SERPs, though of course that's getting a long long way down the page.

When Penguins Attack...

Please Help!
I'm hoping for a couple of second opinions of my conclusions here before I shoot 60% of our link profile in the head...

b) it's not as black and white as most of the blog posts seem to find.

Google's Unhealthy Fascination with Black and White Animals

If Google don't like the inbound links, or statistical variation of anchor text etc, why not simply discount them instead of making this fun little webmaster game where you have to second guess which are likely to be the problem for you?  Then we have another fun little game where we have to ask a bunch of mostly unresponsive domain owners to remove old old links.  Lastly followed by a disavow of the rest.

I wonder how many have innocently taken out a bunch of their good links in the process.  Or most of them...

OK, so why not simply have a little note in WMT of '1,249 of your 9,123 links have been ignored on the instructions of the Penguin' or somesuch?

Would it be about the AdWords?

Anyway.


The Penguin Google Says...

●  We have no unnatural links warning in WMT
●  We have dropped out of the top 50 for all keywords except three.  Those three are a couple of pages down.
●  We still own page 1 for a brand search (World Text), though we lost the bottom result.
●  Overall traffic down 25%, organic down 50%, SERPs impressions down 50-70%

I'd love to know where the remaining organic Google traffic is coming from as we currently rank for nothing (useful anyway);  the analytics doesn't show the usual off a cliff to nothing, more a few quiet weeks.

Several other players in the sector appear to have been obliterated too - searches on several keywords are a total mess with total unknowns and spam showing up on page 1 SERPs.

Adwords traffic is up markedly which I put down to the mess that is SERPs

Our adwords are nicely optimised and our top keywords are hitting quality scores of >=8, mostly 9 or 10.


Why did the Penguin Peck?...

Simple.  Opensiteexplorer should make it blindingly obvious what the issue is.

We have a horrible link profile that I have been muttering about for 18 months or more.

●  Long before I joined seems they got a 5,000 search friendly directory submissions package or equivalent
●  Sadly not a single one of them was from the long obsolete SEOMoz directories list, or worth keeping.
●  Every single last one of them has identical anchor text and description.  Still, makes for easy analysis.
●  The anchor text used isn't likely to be searched often
     "World-Text.com Text Messaging Services"
●  3 of 4 originally submitted sites/directories have since expired, removed links etc

Findings

740 judged bad domains:
    All the identical anchor text SEO directories
    a couple of others picked out as unwanted
    the domains serving malware

    Only 235 class Cs in these
    144 have 0-2 indexed pages - not useful for a directory!

500 judged maybe:
    No links found even though in WMT (a lot of these)
    down, suspended etc (a lot of these too)
    parked
    links that are less than ideal but not identically anchored spam.
    (for instance someone who had linked to us has had their site scraped and dropped on dozen or more forums including our link)

    another pass of these in a week or so, just in case some come back to life...

400 judged good (well harmless):
     Natural links
     real directories
     all the assorted alexa like scrapers, domain valuation junk etc.


Executing Penguins and other vermin...

Apparently pretending to know nothing doesn't help, so...

●  Disavow the three discovered sites serving malware
●  Remove where possible every last one of the SEO directory entries avoiding any extorted payment.  Track contacts and responses.
●  Disavow the rest

{Reconsideration request}

I KNOW this is for manual penalties, and we don't have one, BUT I've seen countless sources suggesting reconsideration for Penguin.  Really?

Anyway that was far longer than intended, so thanks for making it this far!  I look forward to comments!

So, What's Been the Effect of Penguin 2.1?...

In our sector it appears to have obliterated several of the 'usual names', including us and (amazingly) the huge one.

Page 1 results for some common searches include prweb junk, yahoo answers, evernote affiliate spam pages and 5 year old forum posts.  Many searches are showing few of the usual suspects but unheard of and small outfits.

I'm so surprised at how dramatically bad (and different) some searches are from a user point of view that I'm left wondering if it's a cockup rather than intentional Penguin.

Thoughts?

I'm already working on link analysis (although I know it's, ahem, poor) and setting up for removal.

Bloody Penguins...

Google seem to figure I don't have enough to do by essentially obliterating the usual players in the SMS space.

Though from a user perspective killing us and several other players in the space (including the huge one) and replacing page 1 results with evernote spam, prweb and yahoo answers doesn't strike me as overly helpful.  (understatement of the year)

Surprisingly another UK Politician is Clueless on Technology...
Yes, I know it's difficult to believe.
Do you really think I would be that f***ing stupid after 30 years in politics?
Absolutely, I'm starting to believe it's essential for the role or something.

Clueless MPs Demonstrate Cluelessness Again...

Big media and made up facts again.  Memo from Murdoch?

These people run the country.  The level of knowledge on topics I'm aware of is terrifying.  They also make policy on things I don't know so much about.  This worries me a tad.

Still proposing ten years for making a torrent site is proportionate - the civil matter of copyright infringement is clearly equivalent to murder and rape.

Insanity came to Chrome...

Windows (for now, my laptop hackintosh awaits arrival of wireless card from fleaBay).  Open Chrome: 20 processes, rapidly rising to 22 using half a bloody Gig for a single web page (this one).  Well actually 600M.  It's gone up a bit meanwhile...
Firefox?  174M for the same page.  Roughly similar addons, but there are a few differences.

Is there a soon-to-be-announced Google tie up with Crucial?

Oh, and don't get me on the newly removed session recovery.  Since forever I've restored work in progress using the little menu on new tab page:  Restore 12 tabs etc...  Improved Chrome?  Gone entirely.  Recently closed is entirely empty across sessions.

So go pick 'em out one-by-one from history then?  If you can remember...

How I love improvements and progress.

Lasted a Long Time...
Apple never got the memo about biometrics being identity not security then.  Along with many governments worldwide, more likely they knew better or perhaps didn't care as it was simply a marketing gewgaw[1]
5 days.  *smirk*

[1] A word in need of much more use in this age:  gewgaw: a showy thing, especially one that is useless or worthless.

Flu

and an evil cough that's now made my diaphragm ache.  I didn't know it could ache, so there's an unwelcome first.  :(

"Creative Industries" meaning only Holywood and the record labels then.

Neat Little Strategy Game...
Rarely for "games" lately it doesn't solely exist to suck money from you (Candy Crush etc).

Three years (part time) in the making apparently:  http://blog.atomicbrawl.com/blog/2013/09/11/this-post-took-3-years-to-write/

We've finally settled on the new framework...

I've changed languages so many times in the last week or two that I'm no longer confident of being able to print in anything any more.

On Reinventing E-Mail...

Seems to me that the time has come to reinvent email.  Same thing, but encrypted and crucially with the metadata (to/from/subject etc) also encrypted.

Another crucial point would be to make it as easy as unencrypted email as far as the non-technical user is concerned.  Thunderbird as a mail client is ok, but add in enigmail and PGP keys and suddenly you have a layer of complexity that only techies will handle.

Likewise maybe it's time to consider what jurisdiction servers reside in.  Leading to the question what's the best country for secure services right now?

Surely someone out there is already thinking about this?

Any open source projects going or starting in this area?

For me, I know enough about encryption to be a dangerous amateur, so I'd want to see some respected names involved from the encryption and security fields as without it has little credibility.  Nonetheless it's an area I'd like to get involved with.

Google shows little beyond commercial offerings of vague "we're secure" promises.  No one, which I find astonishing, seems to be thinking about solving the exposure of meta data.

Surely e-mail isn't so entrenched it can't be disrupted?___

If They're Trying to Provoke a Reaction...

I think they're (NSA + GCHQ) are going about it the right way...

This kind of thing and quotes such as "These design changes make the systems in question exploitable through Sigint collection … with foreknowledge of the modification. To the consumer and other adversaries however, the systems' security remains intact"

Yep, I'm pretty sure there will be a decent reaction.  Will it be the one they want though.  :)

Sad, But True...

But this does not stop these developments representing a fundamental threat to our society, one that all those brave agents in East Germany would understand in an instant. They would tell you that this is not about the much-denigrated quality of privacy, but about political power. What the Guardian-New York Times stories of last week tell us is that we are much less free than we supposed and that unrestricted surveillance will become a menace to us all. That should be a vital concern for journalists, even at the BBC

Will post review when I've had chance to read it.  Though I've little doubt it will be good.

So, What can be Done in Response?...

Another excellent piece by Schneier.  I'm pleased to see it sits very well with the advice I gave back in June on the blog:  http://www.world-text.com/wordpress/how-to-react-excessive-eavesdropping/

Basically, the NSA asks companies to subtly change their products in undetectable ways: making the random number generator less random, leaking the key somehow, adding a common exponent to a public-key exchange protocol, and so on. If the back door is discovered, it's explained away as a mistake. And as we now know, the NSA has enjoyed enormous success from this program

If you have something really important, use an air gap. Since I started working with the Snowden documents, I bought a new computer that has never been connected to the internet. If I want to transfer a file, I encrypt the file on the secure computer and walki... more »

If you have something really important, use an air gap. Since I started working with the Snowden documents, I bought a new computer that has never been connected to the internet. If I want to transfer a file, I encrypt the file on the secure computer and walk it over to my internet computer, using a USB stick. To decrypt something, I reverse the process. This might not be bulletproof, but it's pretty good

Ok, now there's a technique that's fallen out of fashion!  Haven't heard mention of this for a long time.

They're limited by the same economic realities as the rest of us, and our best defense is to make surveillance of us as expensive as possible

Trust the math. Encryption is your friend. Use it well, and do your best to ensure that nothing can compromise it. That's how you can remain secure even in the face of the NSA___

There is NO Trust or Security on the Internet...
because terrorism
Along with confirmation that the NSA have been deliberately trying to introduce weaknesses (they can exploit) into security standards.

Now when is there going to be some mass outrage outside of the small group of techies and Guardian readers?

If you want a picture of the future right now imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever
Apologies to Orwell.
