I had a “Cool Networking Websites and Tools Collection” post before in this blog which has all of my favorite network tools or websites I found from Internet.

During setting up this “Network Security Memo” blog, there are some other helpful websites or tools being used but not listed before. This post will mostly focus on blog related tools. Hopefully this will help some other beginners when they are trying to set their blog site up. There are no too much explanation for those websites since I am assuming most of readers already having fundamental network knowledge.

12. Redirect Blogspot Site from One to Another
During migrating my site from 51sec.blogspot.com to 91sec.blogspot.com, I have found following ways to do redirection from one blogspot site to another.  The code will be inserted between <head> and </head>

a.  This is current way I am using and found it is best so far.

var oldURL = “51sec.blogspot.com”;
var newURL = “91sec.blogspot.com”;
var url = location.href;
var newURL = url.replace(document.domain,newURL);
window.location = newURL

b. It will only redirect all posts or pages to the homepage site, not passing url parameters.

<meta content=’0;url=http://91sec.blogspot.com’ http-equiv=’refresh’/>

c.  The code works on some of URLs but some were got messed up.

<script type=’text/javascript’>
  var d='<data:blog.url/>’;

13. Google Adsense Sanbox
You can use this tool to determine if a domain is banned in the AdSense program. Put the website URL in the input box and if you see no ads, Google may have disabled ad-serving for that domain.
