Prevent websites openning in GoogleWeblight.com

Google has apparently started to tag certain websites as “slow to load” when browsing through results from the Internet company’s mobile search engine and when you click the search result it is opened in the “googleweblight”.

With users increasingly becoming dependent on mobile Internet, slowdowns are one of the major problems being encountered. The problem isn’t completely avoidable as it can be due to several different reasons, including congestion in the mobile network, users reaching data caps or poor connections within an area.

If Google thinks that the user is on a slow internet connection, it will subject the webpages to a process called “Transcode”, which on the fly converts the webpage into a lighter version, with an aim of consuming less data. However with this process of transcoding, the web page looses its original identity, its intended function and looks like a distorted webpage, reducing user satisfaction.

Hence, as a developer of the web pages the solution lies with you, i.e. to tell the Google Search that you do not want your webpage to be transcoded. Here is how you can do it. You have to simply set the HTTP header “Cache-Control: no-transform” in your webpage. When Google bot sees this header, it will not transform your page into something looking out of place.

And your pages will look and behave exactly as you intended them to be……

Facebook plugin for wordpress – No support from facebook? :-(

Being a hobbyist and not a professional, I have spent lots and lots of tireless days and sleepless nights, trying to integrate the social plugin i.e. facebook for wordpress, offered by facebook, into my blog. All of us who manage their webpages using wordpress know how difficult is it to take approval of various actions and settings from facebook, prior to final implementation on websites.

The login flow using facebook, which was working fine till some time ago, has started throwing an error while I try to login using the administrators account, asking me to take approval for some role permission. When I was going through the documentation for the same I just stumbled upon a post by facebook, that the social plugin, i.e. facebook for wordpress is no longer supported by facebook.

Now, this brings me to feel that facebook has ditched me by withdrawing their support and m feeling bad for all that effort which I have put in for integrating my wordpress blog with facebook.

How many of you also feel the same. I request you all to share your feelings…….
