Diesel Coffee Quiz – About Coffee from Wikipedia

(This section is mainly for SEO purposes, but there are a few clues!)

Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, the seeds of berries from certain Coffea species. When coffee berries turn from green to bright red in color – indicating ripeness – they are picked, processed, and dried.[2] Dried coffee seeds (referred to as “beans”) are roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor. Roasted beans are ground and then brewed with near-boiling water to produce the beverage known as coffee.

Coffee is darkly colored, bitter, slightly acidic and has a stimulating effect in humans, primarily due to its caffeine content.[3] It is one of the most popular drinks in the world,[4] and can be prepared and presented in a variety of ways (e.g., espressoFrench presscaffè latte, or already-brewed canned coffee). It is usually served hot, although chilled or iced coffee is common. Sugarsugar substitutesmilk or cream are often used to lessen the bitter taste.

Clinical research indicates that moderate coffee consumption is benign or mildly beneficial as a stimulant in healthy adults, with continuing research on whether long-term consumption reduces the risk of some diseases, although some of the long-term studies are of questionable credibility.[5]

The earliest credible evidence of coffee-drinking as the modern beverage appears in modern-day Yemen in southern Arabia in the middle of the 15th century in Sufi shrines where coffee seeds were first roasted and brewed in a manner similar to how it is now prepared for drinking.[1] The Yemenis procured the coffee beans from the Ethiopian Highlands via coastal Somali intermediaries, and began cultivation. By the 16th century, the drink had reached the rest of the Middle East and North Africa, later spreading to Europe.

The two most commonly grown coffee bean types are C. arabica and C. robusta. Coffee plants are now cultivated in over 70 countries, primarily in the equatorial regions of the Americas, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and Africa. As of 2018, Brazil was the leading grower of coffee beans, producing 35% of the world total.[6] Coffee is a major export commodity as the leading legal agricultural export for numerous countries.[7] It is one of the most valuable commodities exported by developing countries. Green, unroasted coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world.[8] The way developed countries trade coffee with developing nations has been criticised, as well as the impact on the environment with regards to the clearing of land for coffee-growing and water use. Consequently, the markets for fair trade and organic coffee are expanding.[9]

Deptford High Street today

As of 2020, there were only two pubs on Deptford High Street (The White Swan and The Jobcentre), where there used to be twelve. As of 2013, two former pubs were African restaurants, one pub had been converted into a nail salon, and another one was a youth centre.[7]

Deptford Market is held every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, centred in Deptford High Street, Douglas Way and Giffin Street. It has been considered as one of London’s liveliest street markets;[8] in February 2005, the High Street was described as “the capital’s most diverse and vibrant high street” by Yellow Pages business directory, using a unique mathematical formula.[9] In 2018, Time Out described the street:”Over a quarter of a mile, it packs in a street market, a golden-clad library, one of London’s finest baroque churches, lots of Vietnamese restaurants and more history than you can shake a stick at.”[10]

The street has two purpose-built churches: the Anglican St Paul’s, Deptford (described as one of London‘s finest Baroque parish churches in the Buildings of England series)[11] and the Catholic Church of Our Lady of The Assumption, at 131 Deptford High Street.[12] The street’s final bank was set to close in early 2021.[13]

Copy YouTube search predictions into Google Docs easily

Copy YouTube search predictions

Copy YouTube search predictions into Google Docs easily using this hack. It’s nothing to technical, but a handy hack when you’re brainstorming new keyword ideas!

Why copy YouTube search predictions?

This tells us what to target when we are creating new keyword strategies.

Search predictions are possible search terms related to what you’re looking for and what other people have already searched for. Google makes search predictions based on factors, like popularity or similarity. When you choose a prediction, you do a search using the term you selected.

We also take freshness into account when displaying predictions. If our automated systems detect there’s rising interest in a topic, they might show a trending prediction even if it isn’t typically the most common of all related predictions that we know about. For example, searches for a basketball team are probably more common than individual games. However, if that team just won a big face-off against a rival, timely game-related predictions may be more useful for those seeking information that’s relevant in that moment.

Google

YouTube Autosuggest shows us what people are looking for

Start typing a keyword into the YouTube search bar and you’ll see a list of related queries. These are ‘autosuggest’ results, and they are a great source of keyword ideas.

For example, if you type “iPhone * unboxing,” then you get suggestions like “iPhone XS Max unboxing” and “iPhone 7 unboxing.”

If we’re looking for SEO keyword ideas, this is where we want to look. YouTube only shows popular searches.

If you see any interesting suggestions, go to Google Trends, change the dropdown to “YouTube search” to see their relative popularity.

Here’s how to copy YouTube search predictions

  1. Go to YouTube
  2. Enter your primary search term
  3. Click ‘Report Search Predictions’
  4. Select and copy the list
  5. Open Google Docs and choose ‘paste without formatting’

Text message scams – 5 ways to spot and avoid

Text message scams are rife at the moment with a wave of new scammers using the Coronavirus COVID-19 crisis to target new victims.

They use common tactics to scare people into clicking the link, thinking that an account has been locked or you need to take action to stop something bad happening. Being techy minded I know what to look for but It’s still easy to get caught out!

This article will explain a few things that may help to identify these dodgy messages.

5 simple steps to staying safe

  1. Text message scams and how they work
  2. The Link – look closer
  3. The sender
  4. The potential risk of the CTA
  5. What you can do

Most of us have seen texts like this at one time or another. Right?

HSBC text message scams

At first glance, it looks quite genuine. It says ‘HSBC’ (I have an HSBC account), and all I need to do is click the link to unlock my account. It can’t do that much harm can it? Unfortunately it can lead to huge issues, depending on what the scammer is trying to get from you. These things are not personal, they are sent out in bulk. Even if only a small percentage of the message work, it’s worth it for them.

Education in the only tool we really have to stop them, or at least make their tricks more well-known.

1. Text Message Scams (smishing) and how they work

This scam involves a fraudster sending text messages (also known as an SMS) at random to mobile phones. The text messages claim to come from a reputable organisation such as your bank or mobile phone company.

The message will try to trick you into clicking on a link to a bogus website or calling a phone number, usually by claiming you need to “verify” or “update” your details or “reactivate” an account. The criminal will then attempt to get you to disclose personal or financial information, which they will use for their own fraudulent purposes.

Often the messages will attempt to alarm you, claiming that you need to act urgently or face serious consequences.

How to avoid this type of scam:

Be wary of text messages that:

  • are unsolicited and supposedly come from a reputable organisation, such as a bank or credit card company
  • encourage you urgently to visit a website or call a number to verify or update your details
  • request your personal information such as username, password or bank account.

Remember

  • do not reply to the text message
  • be cautious about clicking on any links that may be embedded or calling the number in a text message

If you think you might have responded to a text message scam and provided your bank account details, contact your bank immediately. Source: FFA website – click HERE to visit.

2. The link in the message – look closer

In these images, the links appear legit. The bank one has HSBC and the Tax one has the word TAX in it. The part that is important is the TDL or Top Level Domain.

Top Level Domain Definition

The letters at the end of a website address are known as its TLD. Examples of toplevel domains include the oldest and most recognizable .com, . net and . org

To explain this, you need to know a bit about domain names.

Text message scams what is in a domain name

The part that matters is the LAST PART. Known as the ‘domain name’ or ‘main domain’.

Any website owner can create a sub-domain with any name they choose. I’ll show you how in a minute.

In these examples, these are the domains with the subdomains showing:

  • HSBC.customer-info2020.com
  • tax.refund-ref121l.com

The subdomains are HSBC and TAX. If we remove the sub-domains, we are left with the main domain or website that created the sub-domains.

  • customer-info2020.com
  • refund-ref121l.com

Note: URL’s or website addresses are NOT case sensitive. The capital letters used in the ‘HSBC’ example are there to make sure the user notices it quickly and then automatically assumes it to be legit, especially if the user happens to have an account with the bank or organisation being used.

Let’s have a look at the HMRC message in more detail:

HMRC text message scams

Do we still think this is from the real HMRC? Here’s how’s they do it.

Sub-domains – our working case study

We’ve created the new subdomain on our website to show how it works.

Our new subdomain is hsbc.dieselcoffee.ltd and we’re going to point it to another website. Our main domain is dieselcoffee.ltd.

From the website Cpanel, we login and create a new sub domain.

This new subdomain can have its own email accounts, full website installed with separate databases and works separately from anything on the main domain.

Creating a new sub domain using HSBC
Creating a new sub domain using HSBC

hsbc.dieselcoffee.ltd re-directs to MedwaySEO.com
hsbc.dieselcoffee.ltd re-directs to MedwaySEO.com

So, the new subdomain ‘hsbc.dieselcoffee.ltd’ we created now re-directs to MedwaySEO.com.

Working example: https://hsbc.dieselcoffee.ltd/ – If this is working correctly, it should redirect you to Medway SEO, this is one of our brands.

3. The sender – a random mobile?

Take a look at the number that sends the message. A random mobile number that is not in your contacts? Most organisations never notify you of problems in this way. They also publish their policies for contacting customers.

4. The potential risk of the CTA

A CTA is marketing speak for a Call To Action. This is the action we want people to take when visiting a site. On legit websites, this action will lead you to a page of information, send a message or ask you to complete a form.

On the internet a link or URL can literally lead you anywhere. These links can install software, inject viruses, malware or other internet nasties. They can gather device information, gain your personal details The list really is endless.

Summary – so what do we know?

  1. Text message scams – we know how to identify potentially dodgy messages
  2. The Link – look closer and see if it’s a real domain as normally used by the company
  3. The sender – we know how to check to see if this method of contact is typical for that company
  4. The potential risk of the CTA – We know what can happen if we click bad links
  5. What you can do – hold tight, we’re about to show you

5. What you can do to protect yourself

  • Check the link and see if its actually from the company it looks like.
  • Check any previous genuine message you may have had from them and compare them.
  • Login to your genuine account and see if everything is working fine, or call them. They will be able to verify your account status instantly.
  • Check the sender number – do you recognise it? If not, try googling it.

As with most things, the best way to stay safe is to be vigilant and stay up-to-date with your most used accounts.

Diesel Coffee Child Theme for Divi – why you need one

Diesel Coffee Child Theme images

Diesel Coffee Child Theme is a ‘child theme’ created in order to preserve any changes you make to your main theme.

WTF is a child theme? (Trigger warning – geeky bit!)

On the most basic level, a child theme must consist of three things:

  1. A child theme directory (or folder). Like all themes, your child theme folder will exist inside your WordPress Themes folder that holds your child theme files.
  2. A style.css file (which will be used to store your child theme CSS)
  3. A functions.php file – At the basic level this file will hold the wp_enqueue_scripts action that will enqueue the parent theme stylesheet

In most cases, the edits you make are saved in a customiser settings file, but all too often (yes, we’ve done it!) you end up making changes to the main theme files without thinking about it. The main theme dev then releases a new update and boom, you’ve lost all your edits. I’ve lost many a day replacing designs this way. It’s no fun!

Don’t avoid updating your main theme!

Some people edit the main theme files and avoid the inevitable updates by skipping the main updates. This mean you end up with out of date files. This can be dangerous as there are usually security updates packaged in the main theme. If you miss these updates, you can leave your site open to hackers and bots.
Most hacked sites gain access through out of date theme files. It’s generally considered bad practice to avoid updates.
If you are concerned about performing updates, you may want to consider a staging area where you can update the themes and test that everything works before updating your live site.

Diesel Coffee Child Theme – here’s how to create yours

Here’s the tool we use to create a child theme: https://elegantmarketplace.com/child-theme-maker/

Why You Need a Diesel Coffee Child Theme or Divi Child Theme

One important reason to create a child theme is to preserve the modifications you make when updating the parent theme. Whenever you update Divi, all of the theme files are updated so if you have made any changes to these files, those changes will be erased

How to add your own Facebook page to the ‘About Me’ section

How to add your own Facebook page to the 'About Me' section

A common problem when trying to setup your ‘place of employment’ on your Facebook profile is that the specific page you wan’t isn’t in the drop-down list.

It asks you to ‘start typing’ and then select the page, but for some unknown reason the page you want doesn’t show in the list.

Here’s how to add your own page:

Step 1
First copy your own business Facebook Page ID number – Facebook Page > About > Page Info > and scroll down the bottom of the page. Select ‘copy’.

Step 2
Go to your personal Facebook Profile
About > Work and Education > Add a Workplace >
Select ‘Add a workplace’ (or ‘Edit’ if you already have one selected)
select ‘ONLY ME’, then click save.

Step 3
Click EDIT and make sure your cursor is in the ‘Company’ text box

Step 4
Right click and select “Inspect Element” and you’ll see a screen showing lines of code.

Find the line of code that says “name=”employer_id” value=”123456789″ (this number changes depending on the FB Page you selected).

‘Paste’ the Page ID number from your own Facebook Page (inside the double quotes) and click SAVE CHANGES.

You should now have a link directly to your own Facebook Page on your ‘Work and Education’.

Change the privacy setting from ‘Only Me’ to ‘Friends’ or ‘Public’ and you’re done
