Speed up your Entrecard drops easily

(Note: If you don't know what Entrecard is all about, then may disregard this post. But, if you are interested, then visit Entrecard or have a read on my Entrecard Reviews:
Review I
Review II)

If your blog is popular and there are hundreds of entrecard fans following to drop cards, then you don't have to worry and make an effort to drop 300 entrecard drops daily.

BUT, if you need a quality visitors, then you would visit the entrecard members blog and drop your cards. This is the first step you've to do when you sign up at Entrecard or probably for ever until you get some recognition.

You know the way you are dropping your cards, it's pretty time consuming. I must emphasize again, it's really really time consuming. What do you do normally?
-Go to the Entrecard dashboard and find out whoever dropped their cards on yours. Then most probably you'd right click on their 125 x 125 entrecard and select 'Open in new Tab' or so.
- If you think yourself extra smart or cool, you would hold the CTRL+SHIFT(or just SHIFT) key and left click all those links one by one.
- You would go to 'campaign' after finishing the visits to those recent droppers and now painfully slow process of dropping cards begins. There are hundreds of blogs under different categories and it would take forever to drop your cards on them.

Last time, I had a small discussion with my friend and he told me that it usually takes 4 hours to drop 300 Entrecards per day. 4 hoursssssss??? I barely spent 30 minutes to drop because I knew how painfully slow process it is to drop cards.

Without a further ado, here is a solution:
The tools you need are:
1) Firefox Browser
2) Snap Links(firefox plugin)

Snap links would let you select and open all multiple links at once. You can learn more about it by visiting above plugin page but for now, if you're in a hurry, as soon as you install that plugin, just access your ENTRECARD dashboard,
-hold your right mouse button
-drag around all the links of 125 x 125 entrecards and release the right-mouse button.

-At one go, all links shall open.
(this plugin is originally for opening multiple links at once.)

So, visit individual page and start dropping. In an average, you'll be saving 10 seconds of your precious time per drop.

One more thing, it will be too taxing for your browser and your system if you are on dialup and has slow system, so start with 5 or upto 10 links altogether but if you are on broadband, use this firefox hack to speed up things to prevent yourself from browser lockups or crashes.

This is an excerpt from my old post:

- In firefox address bar, type 'about:config' (without quotes) and hit enter key.
(This shall reveal all the meat and bones of firefox. Don't mess with this up unless you know what you are doing or so far instructed)

- Scroll down and look for something like this below listed entries:

- change the settings of those entries to:
"network.http.pipelining" to "true"
"network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"
"network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 25. This means it will make 25 requests at once.
(You can put 20 or whatever you like to put. But don't put 100. You don't want to open 100 sites at once. Do you? i just put it to 25, it's my need)
(Note: you can double click to change the value or right-click those entries and select 'Toggle')

Finally, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer.
Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0".
(This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.)

Now broadband users will be able to fully exploit their speedy bandwidth.
Remember, firefox is optimized for slow connection, so, you must use this above hack if you are on broadband

Thank you for reading this post. If you've any other method, please let me know or drop some comments

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
