How To Create Privacy Policy Page For Blogger And WordPress?

A Privacy Policy is a disclosure information about how the site gathers any information from the visitors and about the ads served.
It provides a credibility and trustworthiness to your blog. Many ad serving programs including Google AdSense looks for a privacy policy on your blog before approving you in their advertising network.
Hence, it becomes a necessity to add a privacy policy page to your blog.
In this article, I will tell you how to create a privacy policy page and add it to your blog.

Creating A Privacy Policy Page For Your Blog

You can either create a privacy policy yourself if you have required knowledge. However, most of the bloggers do not know how to create a perfect privacy policy for their blogs. In that case, there are several third-party privacy policy generators which will do the work for you for free. In this tutorial, I am using one such service provided by SerpRank.com
  1. Go to the SerpRank privacy policy generator page.
  2. The page will ask for your Site URL and Email Address.
  3. If your blog use cookies (if you are serving advertising, your blog is most likely using it), select Yes, we use cookies option.
  4. In the advertiser information, select the advertising solutions you use tomonetize your blog.
Privacy Policy Generator
  1. After filling up the form, select Crete my Privacy policy. You have just created a privacy policy for your blog. Now Copy this information to a text document.

How To Add The Generated Privacy Policy To Your Blog?

  1. For Blogger Blog: Open your Blogger Dashboard > Pages. If you are usingWordPress Blog then go to your Dashboard > Pages > Add New
  2. Create a new blank page and paste the copied privacy policy in the text body and title your page as “Privacy Policy
  3. Publish your page
You have successfully created and published privacy policy for your blog.

Conclusion

By adding a privacy policy to your blog, you will increase the trustworthiness of your readers. It’s a good practice to have a privacy policy visible to your readers. Even Google AdSense in their terms and conditions require you to have a privacy policy for your blog. So, go and make one before you apply for any advertising network to make money from your blog.

Methos To Stop Copying Data From My Website Or Blog, Disable Select And Right Click

Posted by Fakhar Ali
It’s frustrating when people copy your blog post or image and pass it off as their own. No thank you, no credit, no linkback. Worse still when the stolen content ranks higher than yours (the original) in search results. All the hard work, down the drain.
This post will show you how deter bad people from stealing your blog content.


How your blog content is copied?

Below are some of the ways people can copy your blog content:
  • Select - Copy - Paste. This can be done using your browser's menu, the right-click context menu or using shortcut keys.
  • Select - Drag - Drop. Text and images can be selected and dragged into another window.
  • Copy from RSS feed. If you want to copy an entire post this option is best. Scrapers love RSS feed because it delivers your latest post to them. They can copy all your latest content without even visiting your blog!
  • Copy from source code.


How to safeguard your content

Below are several different ways you can prevent your blog content from being copied without your consent: 

I) Disable text selection
Making text unselectable is the best way to prevent text from being copied from a live page using the right-click context menu shortcut keys or drag & drop. This can be implemented using only CSS, by applying the following CSS definitions to the element that you want text selection disabled:
-webkit-user-select: -khtml-user-select: none; -moz-user-select: -moz-none; -ms-user-select: none; user-select: none;
Example, if you want to disable text selection in Blogger posts, then the code is:
.post {-webkit-user-select: none; -khtml-user-select: none; -moz-user-select: -moz-none; -ms-user-select: none; user-select: none;}
This CSS will disable text selection on the element and all it's children. It should work on Firefox, Safari, Chrome and IE10+. For IE9 and below, use onselectstart='return false' event handler, see II).

Re-enable text selection
What if you want to allow copying in some parts of your post. Say you post some codes (like I do) for readers to copy, then it doesn’t make sense if they can't select to copy it right? Fortunately you can restore text selection, by applying the same CSS definition to the element and replacing the value “none” with “text”. Let’s say your code is wrapped inside a <code> tag, then the code you need is:
.post code {-webkit-user-select: text; -khtml-user-select: text; -moz-user-select: text; -ms-user-select: text; user-select: text;}

II) Disable drag and drop
You can disable drag and drop for both text and image by adding the following event handler to the element:
ondragstart='return false'
To disable drag and drop inside Blogger posts, follow these steps:
  1. Go to Template > Edit HTML and click anywhere inside the editor.
  2. Press Ctrl+F (Cmd+F in Mac), and a search box should appear on the upper right corner of the editor.
  3. Use the search box to jump to this code:
    <b:includable id='post' var='post'>
  4. Next, click the arrow tip on the left of that line to expand the code. Once expanded, the second line should look something like this:
    <div class='post hentry' itemprop='blogPost'itemscope='itemscope' itemtype='http://schema.org/BlogPosting'>
  5. Insert the event handlers into the tag like this:
    <div class='post hentry' itemprop='blogPost'itemscope='itemscope' itemtype='http://schema.org/BlogPosting'ondragstart='return false' onselectstart='return false'>
    (onselectstart='return false' is added to disable text selection in IE9 and below.)

III) Shorten RSS feed
Once they grab your RSS feed, nothing can stop them from copying or doing whatever they want with it. Whatever copy prevention measures you've applied on the live pages will have no effect here.
That said, you can however, control how much feed they get. To prevent feed from being copied in full, offer only partial/short feed instead of full feed. Make them come to your blog if they want more.
To shorten your blog feed, go to Dashboard > Settings > Other > Site feed > Allow Blog Feed and select Short or Until Jump.

IV) Watermark images
Image watermarking is an proven way to deter people from stealing your images. Once you add a watermark to an image, people wouldn't want to copy it even if you ask them.
You can add watermark using a photo editing software such as PhotoScape, Gimp or Photoshop, or you can do it online on websites that offer such service such as picmarkr.com and watermark.ws.
Enjoy!
