Hidden in Plain Sight: Iowans Struggling to Survive

IOWA — They are our friends and neighbors, the people caring for our children, and the people waiting on us at restaurants.

25 percent of Iowans are making more than the federal poverty level of $24,000 a year, but they aren’t earning enough money to pay their bills.

These are their stories.

The Ultimate List Of Local SEO Citations You Will Need

Why Citations Are Important to Rank in Local Maps

Citations are important and crucial in order to help you with your local SEO and local rankings online. These listings (aka citations) play an important role in your online marketing. Being listed on many major citations help your business in several ways:

  1. Gain authoritative backlinks
  2. Get traffic from these citation sources
  3. Help you rank in the major search engine Maps (Google Places, Bing Maps, Yahoo Maps)
  4. Help you get more customers, directly from the listing and indirectly from Maps Rankings

You may know how to find these citations and you may have built some of them on your own, but you need to make sure they are optimized well and include all available elements they allow. It is also important to keep adding new citations and know how many citations you need to stay ahead of your competitors. You also want to find niche related listings (which are more powerful as they are niche related) and hyper local citations. Hyper local citations are location specific to your area. For example in Arizona we have a local directory called Local First Arizona, which is considered a hyper local directory and these can be a very powerful listing source.

We mainly provide services in the US so most of our listings/citations are going to be focused on US businesses. Since online marketing changes and evolves, we will try to keep this list updated and ongoing. Some really good finds of online citations/social profiles do not always continue and end their services, so it is important to us to keep this updated. You also want to look into getting included in Data Aggregators, as these can help you get listed and found automatically on other citation sources. So they are important to include, but are not necessarily listings or citations.

The first section is going to be general citations and we will be providing industry specific citations. Some of the industry specific listings can be overlapping to our general list. We will also be adding more to our industry specific citations as we are only including a handful of industries on the original post. You can also make a copy of the list or download the list from our drive file. On the file there are multiple tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet. There are so many sources available, we probably have missed some, if you think we have missed some please let us know so we can add them to the list.

If you are busy running your company and want an expert team to handle this process for you, get in touch with us today. This is a part of our local SEO strategy and we build links to these citations to increase their power, authority and trust. Besides our citation building campaign, we use other additional strategies to help your business get found on Google Maps. There are many citations on our list we use as examples of how you should build and fill out your listings.

Monitoring Apache and MYSQL With Monit

Monitoring Apache and MYSQL With Monit Using Centos

Monit is a linux package that can be used to monitor and restart processes automatically if they go down. This brief article will explain how to install and configure Monit.


Installing Monit

 root# yum install monit 

Now that you have installed Monit, the fun begins. The main files you will access and configure are the main configuation file located at /etc/monit.conf and its log file located at /var/log/monit. All editing will take place with configuration file while the log files will show you what it has been doing and can be used for troubleshooting. 

Configuring Monit

The main configuration file is located at ‘/etc/monit.conf’. You can open it in your desired editor like Vi or Nano. A shortened configuration file is shown below. This file only checks for the Apache and mySQL services. More often than not, one of these two services would be the likely culprit that brings down your website(s). Take a look at the configuration file. After the file, there is a description about ‘how it works’. When you make any changes to the monit.conf file, you need to reload the configuration file with the ‘reload monit‘ command or restart it with the ‘/etc/init.d/monit restart‘ command.

 root# vi /etc/monit.conf 
## Start monit in the background (run as a daemon) and check services at
## 2-minute intervals.
#
set daemon  120
#
#
## Set syslog logging with the ‘daemon’ facility. If the FACILITY option is
## omitted, monit will use ‘user’ facility by default. If you want to log to
## a stand alone log file instead, specify the path to a log file
#
set logfile syslog facility log_daemon
#

    group nobody
#
#
## Check that a process is running, in this case Apache, and that it respond
## to HTTP and HTTPS requests. Check its resource usage such as cpu and memory,
## and number of children. If the process is not running, monit will restart
## it by default. In case the service was restarted very often and the
## problem remains, it is possible to disable monitoring using the TIMEOUT
## statement. This service depends on another service (apache_bin) which
## is defined above.

# set daemon 60

How It Works
Okay, the above code shows 2 blocks for Apache and one for mySQL. Too keep it simple, Monit looks for the adequate process ids for the Apache and mySQL services on your server every 2 minutes. If it does not find them, the service(s) are restarted.

Setting Max Emails per Hour With WHM

Setting Maximum Emails per Hour With Web Host Manager

When it comes to email, spam and your clients, you may want to take control of their email limits for many reasons; much of which are very obvious. For example, you want to limit the emails that can be done with a mass emailing script from a client. If you do not control the limits, your ip and domains could find their way into blacklists. Then, you have to send nice emails telling the spam cop to remove your ip or domain name from the blacklist.

Setting the Limit For All Domains

If you have a VPS or dedicated server, you can do this with Web Host Manager. By default, Web Host Manager’s email limit is unlimited. 

To set the same email limits for all domains on the server,

1) Login to WHM
2) Goto Server Configuration >Tweak Settings >Mail >look for: Max hourly emails per domain > Set a number like 50-200.


Setting the Limit For Specific Domains

To set a limit for one domain particular domain on the server,

1) Login to the Linux shell as root
2) Open the file with the path /var/cpanel/users/username with your favorite editor.
ie) root# vi /var/cpanel/users/username
3) Change the max email per hour
ie) MAX_EMAIL_PER_HOUR=50

Migrating PHP / MYSQL, Joomla or WordPress Site To a New Domain Name

Migrating Website To New Domain Name

After days, months or years, you have finally come to the conclusion that you want to migrate your website to a new domain name. There are many reasons why you may want to do this such re-branding, recycling content, you need a name that reflects how the website has grown or you want to use a ‘new domain name’ that is easier to remember. Now that you have the plan, you must execute it. The move is rather quite simple and this procedure will work for any small or large php / mySQL website whether it was made with WordPress, Joomla, or a custom php / mySQL script. The process consists of five simple steps. The steps are to change the old domain name to the new one in all files, make the same name changes in the database, alter your database connection settings (if necessary), add a 301 redirect and resubmit new sitemaps.

1. File Name Changes

The first step is to do a ‘Find’ and ‘Replace’ for all occurrences of your old domain name in your files and replace it with the new domain name.

Method A
One way to do this is to ftp the files to your pc and use an editor that can search all files and folders for a specific string and replace it with the new one. For example, you search for example.com and replace it with example.net. In many cases, you can change everything at once. But, if you have large error_log files or lots of cache files it could take a while. You could remove all error_log files and cache files to save time, if necessary.

 
 


Method B

If you have Linux shell access, you can do a quick find and replace with the Linux command line. The example below will find and replace a string for all files within the directory. The example below will search for example.net and replace it with example.com. Be careful! If you screw up, you screw each occurrence up and need to fix it. However, this example shows hows effective command-lining can be. 

root# grep -rl ‘example.net’ /home/username | xargs sed -i ‘s/example.net/example.com/g’


2. Database Name Changes

Changing the occurrence of your old domain to the new one is simple. You download an uncompressed sql file and load it in an editor. Then, you do a simple find for the old domain name and replace it with the new one. After that, you can import that database into a new or existing database.

3. Alter Database Connection

If you setup up a new database on a new account or a new host, you will have a different. You must change the old username and password with the new one. If you try to view web pages with invalid credentials, your browser will show you connection errors.

4. Add a 301 in your .htaccess File

The one line below can be added to your .htaccess file so that all old urls will point to the new ones. In other words, example.net will redirect to example.com and pages like example.net/wordpress_post will redirect to example.com/wordpress_post.

Redirect 301 / http://example.com/

5. Resubmit a New Sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools

Finally, login to your Google Webmaster Tools account and submit new sitemaps for the new domain.

Conclusion:

Out with the old, in with the new. All of your web pages that are indexed with Google (or any other search engine) will redirect to your new website. In time, your new content and old pages on the new website will be indexed. All in all, everything will go smoothly as though the move did not take place.

Navigating Linux and Using SSH

Using Linux With SSH

When you have root access to your Linux hosting account, you have so many extra features that are not available with shared hosting. One of the major features is SSH access with a tool like Putty. With SSH acccess you can literally connect fromm any computer on the Internet and do whatever you want to your website. You can create, edit and delete files, reboot the server, have acomplete access to all mysql databases, and much much more.

Knowing how to navigate at the Linux root can allow you to work on a website with no extra tools. Unlike a typical pc where you need FTP software and an editor, using SSH can be your final safety net if you need to use that. Imagine going on vacation in Cancun and you lose your laptop, or it fails. If you can access your Linux server wuth SSH, you can be back to work at the nearest Internet connection.

Logging In With SSH

Putty is a simple tool which can be used to connect to the server with SSH. The tool is free to download.

To login with SSH,
1) Open Putty

To view files in the folder

To view files within a folder,
1) Use the ls command.

Current Directory

To view the current directory
,
1) Use the pwd command.

Changing Directories

To change directories
,
1) Use the cd command.

Editing and Creating Files

To view a file(but not edit),

root@vpscat [/home/user]# cat filename.txt

To view and edit a file,
1) Open nano or pico editor
2) root@vpscat [/home/user]# nano filename.txt
3) Use arrow keys to navigate.
Note: If you already have a file with Nano it opens up the file. Otherwise, the command nano filename.txt will open a blank screen and you can make the new file called filename.txt.

To save a file edited or created with Nano or Pico,
1) Click Ctrl + O on the keyboard
2) Click ‘Enter’ on keyboard

To exit Nano or Pico,

1) Click Ctrl + X on the keyboard

Removing Files

To remove files,

1) Use the rm command.
root@vpscat [/home/user]# rm filename.txt
2) You will be prompted ‘rm: remove regular file ‘filename.txt’ ?
3) Answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’
3) Hit Enter on the keyboard.


Exit SSH

To exit SSH,
1) Type: Exit
2) Hit ‘Enter’ on your keyboard.

Cpanel SSL Certificates

Making SSL Certificates With Cpanel and Web Host Manager(WHM)

When you want to add a SSL certificate to your website using Cpanel or web Host Manager(WHM), there are a few key points to remember. The two main points are the key and the actual SSL certificate. The two go hand in hand because the key on the web hosting account is used to create a matching SSL certificate. Then, the certifcate from the SSL company is added to your hosting account to finalize the match on the server.

In the end, the company where you buy the SSL certificate will ask for a key that was generated from your Cpanel or WHM. Then, they give you a certificate which can be used to update your key on yopour server. Now, both your SSL provider and your server have details for the key and SSL certificate. That is the main details which will deploy a usable SSL certificate.

With Web Host Manager or Cpanel, you can create SSL certificates.  

Cpanel

To add an SSL certifcate to Cpanel,
1) Make sure the Cpanel account has its own dedicated ip address.
2) Select SSL TLS Manager
3) Select ‘Generate, view, or delete SSL certificate signing requests’. You will add your domain name and some other required fields like city, state and country.
4) At the bottom look for Generate.
5) Select Generate.

 
At this point, you will have a RSA PRIVATE KEY and a CERTIFICATE SIGNING REQUEST(CSR). The company where you buy your certificate will ask for one of the two code blocks. For example, a company like Namecheap may want the CSR while Godaddy could request the PRIVATE KEY.

The CERTIFICATE SIGNING REQUEST(CSR) will have a block of code that the resembles the block of code shown belown.

Certificate Signing Request

 -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST----- MIICrDCCAZQCAQAwZzEhMB8GA1UECgwYQm9oZW1pYSBXZWJzaXRlIHNlcnZpY2Vz MQ8wDQYDVQQHDAZTYXZvbmExCzAJBgNVBAgMAkJDMQswCQYDVQQGEwJDQTEXMBUG A1UEAwwOYm9oZW1pYW5pc20uY2EwggEiMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4IBDwAwggEK AoIBAQDXwOjuRrBTD7Vlc6xoeqyv0rgefUKJ+rR3RhVF4VmJgWLYvvP92Coh6V82 PDxiV6gDqG/oklloPiWxyyBPEI6UinXRHlq4UXTkLB6h011CNnCi0KtXdCSWo5xE meZI0qQmTDctYLBs3tNAuCR2k8j8v7p9poid+48BaJf0dVBIBvflLy7fYLlodM2Q 69IAhewSw4LG2XUVwmDNMjlIV+9U1oRGRsW+AXHy9Z58Jfm7V31qyhK6Xf4W9Ru3 s9bBjTKcwmpgTI2XVVWueGrByOAAFl27mFof8avwWUW5YCZHdnFp+1u5pwmrPHm2 AmPxhXpeWNjo2WrGm/JsV8eOYC63AgMBAAGgADANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQUFAAOCAQEA yM1aC3Ss3uAHo2YXWiyLSEFOArnwVZ+patyKG8iJX4shGDxYIPEDMIa6R6o5QM8+ 1goGpaxHbFKk91Z9SKbUmv3/pd4+7fd3v4r3ILveWSwFq7DQdj0pQCtrzRYChgcM fXNe5372cPQ6TYrv97eGPh/go7Gb0OTq3W9n4z8W3Kgc65wDGj8cHsFJsW5G+e+o UeE05uLPgt8loyAfRslp02O5sWPENfIf1pqJJQdGmEATd35lBantFWYR8BR+12VP 3ez6Vjw9mJyBnqNjB6V0ZGPVumFcPoNUi28kASiCseWV5yZJyWdIzAOKRVLpgVrg fRF9a/2E7pMjAIM/uWXbCw== -----END CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----

6) Go to your ssl provider.
7) Add your certifcate request. You will need to add your key or CSR that was generated from your web host.  In this example, the key was shown above.

 
 

8) Follow instructions with the SSL provider. You may need to verify your website. The verification process will be different for each company. For example, Godaddy will give you the option to add a file to the root folder and verify that it exists while another company may send a verification email. Wait until they have made you an SSL certificate.
9) When you have an SSL certificate from the provider, it will be a ‘.crt’ file.

 
 

10) Go to Cpanel > SSL / TLS Manager >Certificates (CRT) > Click ‘Generate, view, upload, or delete SSL certificates’.
11) Paste the code into the box or upload the ‘.crt’ file.
12) Select ‘Generate’.


Details About SSL Activation

1) Go to Cpanel > SSL / TLS Manager >Activate SSL On Your WEbsite(HTTPS) >Setup a SSL certificate to work with your site. >Select Your Domain. >Make sure you have the proper key and certificate.
2) Select ‘Install Certifcate’, if necessary.

 
 
 

Web Host Manager

To view SSL certificates,
1) Look for SSL / TLS >Click SSL Key / Crt Manager. You can download all keys, signing requests and SSL certificates here.

 
 

Issues

When you set up an SSL certificate, you may have made a mismatch with the key or certificate. To fix this, you can always download or make a new key. Then, you can go to your SSL provider and update the key. they will give you a new block of certificate code. The code they give is the ‘.crt’ file. This file can be used to install the proper SSL certificate with Cpanel.


Web Page Errors

As a safeguard, you can reboot the server after making changes.
