Today, I went to Interchange Shoalhaven (a not for profit, non-government, community-based organisation) for the 3rd time. Their office location is at 37 Holloway Road, East Nowra. Today I had the chance to visit their influential team members, and then I start to analyse their website and social media current status. In a 1-hour meeting with their IT person, we set some goals for the next two months. I understood that they had done a lot of valuable jobs, and we should do some more tasks before 2020 starts. Some tasks like Increasing their site rank with SEO Decreasing their website Alexa rank to 1 million Creating some back-link to the website Doubling the Facebook page fans and followers Doubling
A friend of mine, Mr Ian Deck, asked me to make some changes on his business web site (Eidos Consulting) and make it mobile-friendly. I made him a new website with WordPress. The new site contains both classic web pages and modern one-page style. Ian is a brilliant guy and asked me to teach him WordPress, and We spent 3 hours in two sessions, and then he modified some texts, added some pictures and statistics to his site. Yesterday he wrote to me “I spent some time last night and this morning getting myself confused with structure and links within the website, but I reckon it’s now good enough to ‘go live’” I am happy that “Eidos Consulting” new website
When I arrived in Australia, It took one week to adopt my mind with this truth that people drive in the correct direction, and they are not criminals. Here, the cars steering wheel is in the right, and the cars drive on the left side of the streets. When I ride a taxi for the first time, I was pushing the brake pedal. I expected to have a car crash anytime. Step by step, my mind adapted itself to new rules, and now, I think I am ready to drive again. It is the truth but funny that I should face an 18-year challenge in 44. I should take another driving license! Before coming to Australia, I read that I
We came to the southern hemisphere of the earth, where I was showing it on the geographical sphere in my childhood and was asking, “The people here do not fall?” Here, not only people don’t fall, but also the sun in the north in the noon isn’t an important issue. Here the steering wheel of the cars is in the right, and sometimes, as usual, when I want to pass the street I look at the left side, while the danger is on the right! Here is a paradise for birds, wherever you can find many birds. Many of these birds are new to me, so I am busy by bird watching and enjoying the city. Everything here runs slowly
It was Feb 2018 that I decided to learn PHP. Because of the lovely W3Schools site, learning the PHP was easy to start. In the second week I tried to write some codes in Notepad++ and then I switched to Eclipse. After two months, I had a simple website (Gheimat.xyz [view it on the arichive.org], a Telegram robot (https://t.me/Gheimatxyz_bot) and a WordPress plugin (Warehouse updater from an external XML for Woocommerce). For ten months I was mostly busy with my sales sites in ASP Classic, help some companies to maintain their WP sites, taking photos, passing food and industrial photography courses, professional photo editing classes and … so I have no free time to start another project with PHP. In
English Cafe is not a physical place; it is a monthly or weekly event that is hosted by a physical cafe. People who like to be in a friendly meeting and talk in English for 2 hours can join English Cafe’s events. Attendants’ English language skill is not important at all, but if they are intermediate or higher (advanced or native) will enjoy more. Attending this event (English Cafe) is entirely free (up to 31st March 2018). Attendants only pay the coffee, tea or any other things they eat or drink during the meeting to the host cafe or coffee shop. The next English Cafe event will be informed via social media and the English Cafe site: www.EnglishCafe.xyz
However smoking in cafes and restaurants is forbidden in Iran, but still, there are many coffee shops and cafes that you can find an ashtray on their tables. This means they let their customers smoke there! Some cafes have individual parts for smokers; smokers are allowed to smoke there. But I am talking about non-smoking cafes, the lovely places that you can enjoy coffee and cocoa smell instead of the annoying smell of cigarette. As some people use the lovely FourSquare software on their mobile phone, so I have created an editable list of non-smoking cafes in Iran there. Please, kindly visit it and add the non-smoking cafe. http://nonsmoking.cafe Your help will be appreciated with the pleasant smell of cakes,
Today, I published the above picture “this site needs your help” to my Instagram account to ask my followers to support my web site. As Instagram is an easy to use application and many people all around the world have it on their mobile phones, so each good picture will collect 10s or 100s even millions of likes in a few hours. Unfortunately adding links to Instagram posts is not possible! I am glad to inform you that this request has collected six likes in 30 minutes, I predict that this picture would raise more than 50 likes in next 24 hours (about 60% of the average number of likes on my photos posted on Instagram). Thank you, dear followers! Anyway,
It was a hard decision, but I had no cure except removing Online Shop from my site. Managing a multilingual site in WordPress is not as easy as I was thinking at first. More than two years, I had used qTranslateX for this purpose, and I have had many unexpected problems with it. Finally, I decided to use WPML, migrating to WPML was a tough process and after I thought that everything is OK, I found more than 6000 unwanted categories in my Woocommerce shop! Removing these unwanted categories was something possible, but I think handling a multilingual online shop with open source tools like WordPress and Woocommerce need someone to work full time on them. As I am too
Today I started to record birds sounds by my new portable recorder Zoom H6. Voice recording is not just a hobby for me, as I know birders can identify birds by sounds too. In my last birding trip, I saw expert bird watchers that we’re able to detect sounds easily and find birds by their sounds very fast. I am going to upload the sounds that I record to Xeno-Canta site [Sharing bird sounds from around the world]. Here is my public profile there http://www.xeno-canto.org/contributor/LVRQSWTJCZ It is my pleasure if you check it some time and put your comments there.

Sometime in Iran, we should re-invent the wheel! Unexpectedly I understood that none of my “bit.ly” Short URL doesn’t work because this site is blocked by Iran government. For a while, I used goo.gl, but bit.ly gives customers more professional services like a hosted domain name. Finally, I decided to set my URL Shortener. I chose sml.yt for the domain name and installed specified software for it. I hope everything is OK now. Why should we use an URL Shortener? There are five reasons on (http://sml.yt/o) 1. They make links more manageable 2. They can track and compile click data 3. They can be transformed into social media services 4. They can provide users useful features 5. They promote sharing
Yesterday I installed WP on MyCamTalks.com (a team photo blog in English and Persian). I also uploaded some photos and their description for the test. Javaneh Azimi and I have created this photoblog to have better communication with people all around the world. We strongly believe that Instagram and other social media cannot cover our needs. However, we will continue to upload and share our contents on other apps, but complete contents and large size photos will be uploaded to this site only. We (current and future website members) will upload daily photos there, there is no limitation about the subjects and location of pictures, but the members will take pictures. So you should expect many original photos there.

The “Online Multilingual Picture Dictionary” test site is available on www.picturedictionary.info. This picture dictionary contains some languages and is developing by a dynamic team of languages and cultures lovers. I have been on the consultant team, and now I try to introduce this test site by social media. Javaneh Azimi and I (the project owner and developer) idea for this project is: If people know more about other languages and culture, they will understand each other more, and this will cause a decrease in regional and international conflicts. Please keep your fingers crossed for this aim. Thank you

I know that having a real challenge will cause that I enjoy from my life, always should be something to fight for. I knew that I have not written on my weblog for a while, and unfortunately, recently, I just used social media to write and publish my notes and pictures. Recently I seldom write about my hobbies and job activities. As tomorrow is not promised to anyone, So I am going to publish at least three posts per week. I hope the new procedure helps me to have about 1000 daily visitors instead of current 10-15 visitors up to March 2016.
There are some days and some time that you have many ideas in your mind and like to do them, but you are too busy with daily tasks and you can not. Maybe you find some free time, but your mind is not enough to calm to think. It seems that you are like a Formula One car in a race that even in checkpoints, you are not allowed to turn off your engine. BUT some time there is no way except to say “go to hell” and no matter what will be happened then! You need to silent I have some big ideas, and now I want to go on a trip and spend my time with my family

Last week I re-activated my old advertisement system on one of our company high traffic sites. And after one day I understood that the number of views and clicks are not reasonable, I mean they were ten times higher than I expected. When I checked the raw site logs, unexpectedly I found about 80% of the site traffic belonged to search engine robots and crawlers!!! Not only famous American ones like Google, Bing and Yahoo but also Russian Yandex, Chinese Baidu and Iranian Yooz were very active on the site. There were two solutions to solving the problem: 1. Blocking search engines traffic and preventing their robots and crawlers to indexing my site, an expert knows this action means suicide
