[SOLVED] Storage Space Running Out on Galaxy S2

First of all, Hands Down, Samsung Galaxy S2 is the best phone I have ever used and it still ranks among the top smartphones available in the market. Even Samsung kept it alive for 3 years by feeding it Gingerbread (Android 2.3) to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) to Jelly Bean (4.1).
Although at one point of time the phone was working smoothly with over 450 applications installed in it, but suddenly somewhere in October, 2013 with just around 100/150 applications, my phone started showing the device storage issue message frequently whenever the available space went below 200MB.
Let me first tell you that this problem is not an issue of rooting the device or does rooting will fix it. You don't even have to Factory Reset your device to get back the storage.
The solution is much simpler than that:
1. Press *#9900* on your device keypad to enter SysDump.
2. Select the second option displayed on the screen: Delete dumpstate/logcat

That's it. I recovered almost around 1 GB by doing this.

Here are a few tips to help you optimize your LinkedIn Profile for networking with the pros, showing off your talents, and capturing new clients.

Well the fact is that most of the search engines are smarter (getting smarter day by day) than any of us and their crawlers will easily catch bad links.
This will leave your back links valueless and you would have wasted your hard earned money and effort that will bear no results in the future. Given below are a few things that one should strictly stay away from in the process of getting back links:
  1. Do not ever try to get back links from any of the links farms available these days.
  2. Google considers links from the websites of link exchange communities as crap and assigns no value to it while ranking a blog.
  3. One of the worst things to do to kill your blog yourself is to buy backlinks.
  4. Do not make use of cheap article submission services that submit your article to Junk Article Directories.
  5. Last thing to remember is if you have multiple blogs do not try to link them to each other as it is viewed as two way by Google.
No one method to build links is the best. You have to find what suits best for you. But diversifying your link building efforts pay much. That is why you should try all of the above methods.

10 Tips to Give Your Blog a Boost

When it comes to blogs most of them fall into the blah category. They are not good or bad, just boring. If you do not want your blog to be blah to readers then you have to make your blog stand out. But how do you do that? Well, here are ten tips to give your blog a boost without having to invest a lot of time or money:
1. Find your focus – The first thing you should always have in mind is your blog’s focus. What is your main niche topic? You want your topic to be specific so that you can get in the readers you want without alienating anyone with off topic posts. This means no mix and match sites. What you do not want to do is have a site about cats and flowers or technology and babies. If you can merge the topics then all the better, like plants for cat lovers or technology to keep babies safe, but if you jump from topic to topic you are going to lose readers who are not interested in both, which will be a lot.
2. Know who your readers are – After you find out what your topic is you can focus in on who your readers are. Finding out who you are targeting with your blog is easy. There are many programs online that can help you to do that. Once you figure out who they are you can more effectively target them with your writing and blog layout. For example teens would probably like a layout that has lots of images and music and bright colors. However retired people would probably like a blog that was laid out in a familiar way like a newspaper.
3. Make a good first impression – Think about your blog’s layout. What does it say about your blog right off the bat? Does your blog look boring or exciting? Entertaining or same old same old? Make your blog have a great first impression on your readers by investing your time in redecorating. Make your blog have a great layout and look that will draw readers in.

Ideas For The Burnt Out Blogger

We all get burnt out. Blogging day in and day out will do that to you. Sometimes I just sit in front of my computer, staring at the white screen and wondering what in the world I will be able to blog on today. However when every day becomes a struggle like that, you know, you are really burnt out. How do you get over it? Well, here are some tips that I hope will help you:
1. Take a break – I know it goes against the grain for many bloggers, but sometimes the idea is a simple on. You just need a break. A vacation. A few days off from blogging. Putting your blog on hiatus is a drastic step, but it is also sometimes a necessary one. No one wants to read a blog updated by a cranky burnt out blogger. Instead let the land lie fallow for a while and take a complete brain break. If you can do not even set your fingers to typing an email during this time. Just let your brain rest and recuperate and hopefully you will be able to come back to your blog ready to get back at it once again.
2. Use guest posts – When you are really burnt out but still want to keep your blog alive a guest post exchange is a good idea. You hopefully have friends out in the blogosphere that will be willing to write a post for your site in exchange for a link to their site. This benefits you both. You get the content you need and they get to expand their audience. You can specify exactly what you want them to write so that there will be no issues or you can let them have free reign. It is all up to you, but guest posting is a great way to get content without having to write it yourself.
3. Use images –Another great way to blog without having to think a whole lot is to use images. You can make an image the whole center of a blog post or series of blog posts. All you have to do is add a caption or two and you are done. How easy is that? Not only is this easy, but readers love images. People are usually very visual and a great image is, as they say, worth a thousand words.

How to Make Your Content Perform Again and Again

This is one of the best posts by Lindaw Foreshaw, that will take your attention to your own posts giving them a makeover and bring back all the traffic that those posts truly deserve.

If you’ve been in the blogging world for more than a nanosecond, you’ll no doubt have heard that content is some sort of royalty. You may even have come across Seth Godin’s message that content marketing is the only kind of marketing left. Does that mean you should be furiously tapping away at your keyboard writing new content until repetitive strain injury brings you to a complete standstill? Not necessarily. There are several things you can be doing to maximize the performance of your existing content.

1. Past Posts
A good headline/catchy title is a must when you want to get visitors clicking on your latest content, but what happens when that latest content becomes yesterday’s news - when those catchy titles aren’t visible on your home page anymore? Any blogger worth their salt will be able to tell which of their legacy posts are still driving heaps of traffic, so why not dig out that info from whatever analytical program you’re using and build on the popularity of your most visited past posts? Optimizing the titles of your past posts for SEO (as opposed to user clicks) can result in huge spikes of traffic to your site. While you’re checking your stats you might notice a few blog posts that have been particularly popular with your visitors. Could it be time for a bit of a makeover where the nuts and bolts of the text is concerned?

2. Speed it up
Taken a look at your bounce rate lately? The good old days when a site had to load within the golden two seconds are well and truly behind us. These days if your site takes more than a blink of an eye to load up and be ready to go your visitors will be someone else’s visitors fairly sharpish. It means that you should be placing great importance on getting your site to load extremely quickly. This can be as simple as optimizing images, but there are plenty of other things to consider. The best practices for web page optimization provided by the Yahoo Developer Network is a great place to start if you want to speed up the pace at which your site loads.
