When it comes to buying a smartphone, our choices differs. Some choose to go for the chinese branded smartphones, while others prefer the mainstream brands. If you have recently purchased a good chinese branded Android phone, you'll notice instantly that there's no Google apps pre-installed. We all know that chinese companies offers great specs at a low price, and thus a lot of people will definitely choose to stick with a chinese phone without minding the hassles. For the folks living in China, they'll certainly blend in with their chinese Android phone even without having the Google apps and Play Store. But when you relocate outside of the chinese territory, then you will discover
that the aforementioned apps are essential.

The Gionee GN5001S for instance is a top-notch chinese branded Android phone that offers plethora features. The device brings a whopping 3GB RAM and 16GB ROM which can be expanded with 128GB memory
card coupled with a 4000mAh li-on battery. If you have recently purchased this device (or any other chinese branded smartphone) and you got faced with the issue of installing Google Play Store, then there is no need to ditch it aside for a mainstream brand. For there is always a workaround to everything in life especially when it comes to Android category. Hence in this article, we're going to unveil and also guide you on the perfect procedure to install Google apps and Play Store on any Chinese Android phone.
Note: This guide will only work on Gionee
GN5001S

Prerequisites


  • Rooted Chinese Android Device
  • Install Root Explorer
  • Download CHPLAY_5X.7z.
  • Install ZArchiver

Root Your Device


To begin with, you will need to install root access on your Chinese Android phone. This procedure sadly is compulsory and it must be carried out in other to modify and sideload necessary files to the "system memory" on your Android device. Fortunately, we have previously discussed the perfect method to root any Android phone and with this guide, the geeks over at techviola where able to install root access on Gionee GN5001S. All thanks to KingRoot.

Download CHPLAY_5X.7z File & InstallRoot Explorer

Once you've successfully rooted your phone, the next step is to download the required files that will give your Chinese Android phone the permissions to allow all the Google apps and Play Store to run on your device. This files once sideloaded into the appropriate "system folder" will automatically install Google Play Services and Play Store on your chinese device. So to get this one going, download the CHPLAY_5X.7z file from above link, followed by root explorer which will come in handy since it auto enables read/write and hence allows you to easily move the files to there specific folder in the system directory.

Install ZArchiver & Copy Files to SystemMemory


When you're done downloading the file with the name "CHPLAY_5X.7z", install ZArchver and using it to extract the downloaded file to your SD card. Now open root explorer and navigate to the system directory. From here, switch between tabs and locate the file you extracted earlier in your SD card. Open it and you'll be greeted with 5 folders (app, etc, framework, lib, priv_app).


Under "app", copy only the folder named
GoogleContactsSyncAdapter and paste it in /system/app. Under "priv_app", copy the folders inside it and paste it in /system/priv_app. For the remaining folders (etc, framework, lib), copy only the files found in thereand paste them in their rightful or respective location in the system directory.


  • /System/app/
  • /System/etc/
  • /System/framework/
  • /System/lib/
  • /System/priv_app/

If you are​ prompted to merge, overwrite or replace already existing file, simply tap Yes. Note, apart from the "app" and "priv_app" folder, Do not copy the whole folder found inside (etc, framework, and lib). Simply
open each of the sub folders and at the end, copy and paste only the "files" to their respective locations. When you are done, reboot your phone.


Enjoy Google Playstore



Once your device is back on, you will notice that Google Play Store has been installed successfully. Simply open it and sign up. From here, download all the Google apps including Gmail, YouTube, Google map, Google+, Google drive and even Google photo. You can go further to update the Google Play Services to its latest version which will enable apps such as Snapchat and Google Play Games to work perfectly.

Wrapping Up

With this procedure, you can install Google Play Store and other Google apps on your Chinese Android phone without any hassle. I have tested this method on a friend's Gionee GN5001S and it worked perfectly. Hence it'll work on other Chinese Android phone provided you follow the instructions correctly. If you encounter any difficulty or if it worked for you, kindly use the comment box below to share your experience.

blogger blogging successfully

 Hi! Thanks for sticking around. I don’t write about blogging often because this is a travel website not a blogging website, but I’ve seen a lot of articles on travel blogging lately, which have many points I disagree with, and I want to offer a counterbalance to some of the prevailing wisdom out there.
Travel blogging is a crowded field — and it gets more crowded by the day. After all, the idea of “getting paid to travel the world” seems like an amazing thing to try to do. You get to visit wonderful places around the world on someone else’s dime! It’s a dream job, right?
Well, first, running a blog is really hard and time-consuming. Putting posts up is not going to result in money falling like rain (though judging by some of the people I’ve seen on paid trips, it can amount to a drizzle). You have to work for it. It takes persistence. Unless you hit the Internet “viral” lottery, you should expect to plug away for a least a year with minimal success.

Think of travel blogging like the restaurant business: Just because there are a lot of restaurants doesn’t mean that that they are all good or that you shouldn’t open one of your own! Instead, people who open a restaurant or desire to be a world-class chef look around and say, “I can do this better.” That’s the mindset you should have about your travel blog.
Just because you travel and write doesn’t mean you can write well or can become a good travel writer. Go back to my early posts from 2008 — they are horrible. I mean god-awful. There is a big difference between the content I produced then and the content I produce now. Sucking — at first — is part of the journey. You aren’t going to be great out of the gate.
But how do you quicken the curve to greatness? Here are nine things you MUST do to succeed in travel blogging (or any blogging field, really):

1. Read a Lot

I am always shocked at how few travel bloggers develop their skills by reading. Very few read any marketing, strategy, business, or self-development books. Running a blog is running a business, and if you don’t go to “school” and constantly learn, you’re going to fall behind. Every successful person I know is a voracious reader. They constantly try to improve their skills and knowledge. You must always be student. You must always learn.
After all, why reinvent the wheel?
Read what experts have to say, learn what works, and apply the tips you pick up to your blog. If someone has been there and done that, why try to learn that through trial and constant error? Read the best way to do it… and do it! I read a lot besides travel books. I consume marketing books, management, writing, history books, and biographies. Even if you only get one idea from the book, that book was worth it. I read at least one book a week and am often reading multiple books at a time. Travel, history, business, fiction — I consume it all.
If you only do one thing from this list, make it this one.
Some of my must-reads are:
If you do only one thing from this list, make reading more it!

2. Be Like Apple — Think Different

Whatever you are going to write about, try to present that subject in a way that hasn’t been done before. If everyone is sharing sponsored content, don’t. If everyone is writing text, make a video. If everyone is serious, be funny. If everyone has complex designs, go simple and visual. If everyone is doing one-off blog posts, create a story through a series of posts that keep people coming back for more.
Always innovate — do something different and unique.

3. Invest in Your Blog

For a long time, I avoided spending any money on this website. I bootstrapped everything and viewed every expense negatively. “That designer would be nice but I can’t afford it. I’ll just create a crappier design myself.”
But I soon realized money spent wisely is an investment. Now I pay for designers, SEO auditors, conferences, video and audio editors, copy editors, and much more. This allows me to improve the reader experience, develop useful products, work on other projects, and free up time to write. I focus on my core competencies and hire the rest out.
It’s easy to say, “Oh, that conference is too much. I don’t want to spend that much.” But if that conference results in one strong business connection that leads to new sales or a guest posting opportunity, then the conference is worth it. (See below for some good conferences to attend.)
Businesses invest in themselves — and you need to do the same. It can be easy for me to say now, but even when you start, spending a little bit of money can go a long way. I didn’t start out hiring lots of people. I hired one person, then another, then another. Even if you spend a few hundred dollars on snazzier banners, that can go a long way to improving your readers’ experience.

4. Be Niche

Back when I started blogging in 2008, it was easy to maintain a general budget travel website. You could cover a wide range of travel topics and face little competition. There was only a handful of bloggers. Now, there are too many long-established blogs and websites to do that. (And you’d also be way behind in Google search results.)
I recommend being as narrow and focused in your topic(s) as possible. Whether it’s RV travel, Turkey, Thailand, NYC, or your small town, the power of search lets everyone define their niche and still be able to reach millions of potential readers. In fact, being niche now is better than trying to be a more general resource site like mine.
Moreover, focusing lets you become an expert. You can be the person to whom readers always turn for information on this subject or that destination, which allows you to cultivate a bigger presence online.
Don’t try to be everything to everyone. Go narrow. Go deep.

5. Create Products

Businesses sell something — and so should you. Whether it’s a course, a book, t-shirts, tours, or just other people’s products via affiliate marketing, give your audience an opportunity to support your website. Offering products for sale allows you to be independent from sponsors and brand deals and not compete with other travel bloggers for spots on press trips (see below). It allows you to scale your website and your revenue. Many products offer value to your readers by going more in-depth and in detail than a blog post usually allows.
There are few travel bloggers that produce products. Most of the time, travel bloggers end up making money by creating sponsored content and getting paid to go on trips. That’s cool if that is something you want to do, but that is time-consuming and requires you to be constantly working (and it’s soul-sucking). You never have time to relax or do something for yourself. It’s not a hamster wheel you want to be tied to.
Products allow you to generate something once and earn revenue while sleeping, sightseeing, or getting a suntan on a beach!

6. Don’t Take a Lot of Press Trips or “Work with Brands”

Why do people still buy guidebooks? Because they want an independent opinion on destinations. If everything you write is sponsored by someone, you’ll hit a limit to your number of readers. Sure, some people won’t care and will follow your adventures no matter what, but a larger majority of people will feel that you can’t relate to their experience and will seek to find information elsewhere.
Consumers want relatable and independent travel content because they want to learn that they can make it happen too. (Just look at the comments on this post if you don’t believe me!) If you’re in fashion, you can showcase all the makeup you want because a reader can look at that and think, “Yeah, I can do that too! To the mall I go!” But when you’re talking travel, people can’t look at your free, multi-thousand-dollar trip to the Maldives and say, “Yeah, that’s realistic for me too! To Expedia I go!”
Think about it. When you see someone having a $10,000 holiday, how do you feel? Do you think “Wow! That’s pretty!” or “Wow! I can do that too! I’m going to book that!?”
Sponsored trips, blog posts, and one off brand deals will help you travel and provide eye candy for your readers but it won’t create the expertise and relatable experiences that will have them coming back to you over and over for concrete advice or product purchases.
I’ve yet to see a pure travel blog get huge by only taking sponsored trips (though there are number of fashion/travel hybrid blogs that are gigantic). The most successful bloggers in many niches avoid one-off partnerships and sponsored content because it dilutes their authenticity. (On the other hand, long-term partnerships are wonderful as they can bring value and unique deals to your readers.)
Avoid too many one-off trips paid by someone else, write about relatable experiences, and grow larger!
(And when you create products, you don’t need the money from these trips! Win-win!)

7. Network Outside of Travel

Networking with other travel bloggers can help you become better known in the industry (which is a good thing), but by reaching outside of the industry, you can be the travel person everyone else turns to for quotes, interviews, and advice.
And that is going to pay more dividends than just sticking to travel conferences. Yes, attend industry events (you’d be stupid not to!) but don’t attend only industry events.
Find where your expertise overlaps with other industries and meet the successful leaders in those industries. Then you can find people who know nothing about travel and be their travel expert on their websites. It’s how I’ve connected with so many finance, entrepreneurship, and tech experts. Here are some good conferences to attend:

8. Stop Talking About Yourself

While running a blog means you are going to say “I” a lot more than in magazine or newspaper writing, that doesn’t mean you should write only about yourself. If your blog is solely a journal or trip down memory lane, write about anything you want. But if you’re looking to run a professional blog that creates a sustainable business, remember that it’s not all about you.

It is – and always will be – about the people reading your website.

Whether that is by providing practical advice, telling them a good story, or making them laugh, remember that it’s all about how you can be in service to them.
If you are going to write about yourself, do so sparingly or relate it to the bigger picture of travel on the road. Don’t write about your new shoes, what food you ate, your thoughts on whatever, or the mundane details about your life. Few people really care about that. We read writers because they connect with us on an emotional level, tell good stories, and allow us to visualize ourselves in the places they talk about it.
Far too many travel blogs are a glorified personal diary but the most successful ones tell stories of places and better their reader’s travel experience!

9. Be Persistent

Rome wasn’t built in a day — and your blog won’t build itself overnight either. Maintain realistic expectations about your blog. Don’t expect anything but hard work for the first year. Don’t rush. Build something that will last. The light is always at the end of the tunnel, but too many people give up right before the end. Keep going. You’ll make it!
****
Creating a travel blog is a time-consuming process. Writing about your trip to Paris is only a small part of the story. Successful blogs focus on content and are customer-centered and reader-centered. It’s easy to reach small or mid-tier status but if you want to stand out, focus on reader-centric content, being niche, creating products, and sticking to best practices.
If you’re looking for more in depth advice, I have a very detailed and robust blogging course that gives you a behind the scenes look at this website and features case studies, expert interviews, monthly webinars, tech support and help with setting up your website, and a lot more.















If you’re like me, you probably use Google many times a day. But chances are, unless you're a technology geek, you probably still use Google in its simplest form. If your current use of Google is limited to typing in a few words and changing your query until you find what you’re looking for, then I’m here to tell you that there’s a better way -- and it’s not hard to learn.
On the other hand, even if you are a technology geek and can use Google like the best of them already, I still suggest you bookmark this article of advanced Google search tips. Then, you’ll then have the tips on hand when you're ready to pull your hair out in frustration watching a neophyte repeatedly type in basic queries in a desperate attempt to find something.



The following advanced Google search tips are based on my own experience and things that I actually find useful. I’ve kept the descriptions of the search tips intentionally terse, as you’re likely to grasp most of these simply by looking at the example from Google anyway.
Here's an overview of some of the most useful Google search tricks. You'll be an expert Google search-er in no time.

How to Search on Google 

1. Explicit Phrase

Let's say you're searching on Google for content about inbound marketing. Instead of just typing inbound marketing into the Google search box, you will likely be better off searching explicitly for the phrase. To do this, simply enclose the search phrase within double quotes.

Example Search: "inbound marketing"

2. Exclude Words

Let's say you want to search for content about inbound marketing, but you want to exclude any results that contain the term advertising. To do this, simply use the - sign in front of the word you want to exclude.

Example Search: inbound marketing -advertising

3. This OR That

By default, when you conduct a search, Google will include all the terms specified in the search. If you're looking for any one of one or more terms to match, then you can use the OR operator. (Note: The OR has to be capitalized).

Example Search: inbound marketing OR advertising

4. Words in the Text

If you want to find a webpage where all the terms you're searching for appear in the text of that page (but not necessarily beside each other), type in allintext: followed immediately by words or phrases.

Example Search: allintext:vermont ski house lake

5. Words in the Text + Title, URL etc.

If you want to find a webpage where one term appears in the text of that page and another term appears elsewhere on the page, like the title or URL, then type in that first term followed by intext: followed immediately by the other term.

Example Search: neil diamond intext:red sox

6. Words in the Title

Want to find a webpage with certain words contained in the title (but not necessarily beside each other)? Type in allintitle: followed immediately by words or phrases.

Example Search: allintitle:wine club

7. Words in the TItle + Text, URL, etc.

Want to find a webpage where one term appears in the title of that page and another term appears elsewhere on the page, like in the text or the URL? Type in that first term followed by intitle: immediately followed by the other term.

Example Search: flu shot intitle:advice

8. Words in the URL

If you want to find pages with your search query mentioned in the URL, type allinurl: immediately followed by your search query.

Example Search: allinurl:hubspot blog

9. How to Search Within a Website

Often, you want to search a specific website for content that matches a certain phrase. Even if the site doesn’t support a built-in search feature, you can use Google to search the site for your term. Simply use the site:somesite.com modifier.

Example Search: site:www.smallbusinesshub.com "inbound marketing"

10. Related Search

If you want to find new websites with similar content to a website you already know of, use the related:somesite.com modifier.

Example Search: related:visual.ly

related-google-search.png

11. A Page That Links to Another Page

Let's say you want to search for every website that cites a BuzzFeed article on their website. To do this, use the link: command, immediately followed by the name of a page. Google will give you all pages that link to BuzzFeed's official website. The more specific the URL is, the fewer, more pointed results you'll get.

Example Search: link:buzzfeed

12. Similar Words and Synonyms

Let’s say you want to include a word in your search, but also want to include results that contain similar words or synonyms. To do this, use the ~ in front of the word.

Example Search: "inbound marketing" ~professional

13. Word Definitions

If you need to quickly look up the definition of a word or phrase, simply use the define: command. You can listen to the word's pronunciation by pressing the megaphone icon.

Search Example: define:plethora

google-word-definitions.png

14. Missing Words

Ever forgotten a word or two from a specific phrase, song lyric, movie quote, or something else? You can use an asterisk* as a wildcard, which can help you find the missing word in a phrase.

Example Search: much * about nothing

15. News in a Specific Location

If you're looking for news related to a specific location, you can use the location: command to search Google News for stories coming from that location.

Search Example: star wars location:london

16. Specific Document Types

If you’re looking to find results that are of a specific type, you can use the modifier filetype:. For example, you might want to find only PowerPoint presentations related to inbound marketing.

Example Search: "inbound marketing" filetype:ppt

17. Translations

Want to translate a simple word or phrase from one language to another? No need to go to a translation website. Just search translate [word] to [language].

Example Search: translate krankenwagen to english

18. Phone Listing

Let’s say someone calls you on your mobile number, and you don’t know who it is. If all you have is a phone number, you can look it up on Google using the phonebook feature.

Example Search: phonebook:617-555-1212

(Note: The number in this example doesn't work. You’ll have to use a real number to get any results.)

19. Area Code Lookup

If all you need to do is to look up the area code for a phone number, just enter the three-digit area code and Google will tell you where it’s from.

Example Search: 617

20. Zip Code Lookup

If you need to look up the zip code for an address, simply search for the rest of the address, including town or city name and state, province, or country. It'll return results with an area code (if applicable),

Example Search: 25 First St., Cambridge, MA

21. Numeric Ranges

This is a rarely used but highly useful tip. Let’s say you want to find results that contain any of a range of numbers. You can do this by using the X..Y modifier (in case this is hard to read, what’s between the X and Y are two periods). This type of search is useful for years (as shown below), prices, or anywhere where you want to provide a series of numbers.

Example Search: president 1940..1950

22. Stock (Ticker Symbol)

Just enter a valid ticker symbol as your search term, and Google will give you the current financials and a quick thumbnail chart for the stock.

Example Search: GOOG

23. Calculator

The next time you need to do a quick calculation, instead of bringing up the Calculator applet, you can just type your expression into Google.

Search Example: 48512 * 1.02

24. Tip Calculator

Along with a normal calculator, Google has a built-in tip calculator. Just search tip calculator and you can adjust the bill, tip %, and number of people splitting it.

Search Example: tip calculator

 google-tip-calculator.png

25. Timer

Don't have a timer handy? Google has you covered. Just type in an amount of time + the word "timer," and the countdown will begin automatically
Search Example:
 google-timer.png

Search Example: 20 min timer

26. Stopwatch

Search "stopwatch" and it'll bring up a stopwatch for you to start when you're ready.

Search Example: stopwatch 

27. Weather

Next time you're looking for quick weather stats or a forecast for a certain area, search for weather followed by a location. Google will give you both before the first search results.

Search Example: weather cambridge ma

weather-google-search.png

28. Sunrise & Sunset Times

If you're curious when the sun will rise and set that day at a specific location, do a simple Google search with the word sunrise or sunset along with the location name.

Search Example: sunrise acadia

29. Flight Statuses

If you type in the airline and airplane number into Google, it will tell you the flight information, status, and other helpful information.

Search Example: BA 181

google-flight-status.png

30. Sports Scores & Schedules

Want to know the latest sports scores and future schedules of your favorite teams or match-ups? Search a single team name or two team names and Google will use Google Sports to spit out scores and schedules before the first search results.

Search Example: manchester united

31. Comparing Food

Believe it or not, if you're ever curious how two types of (fairly generic) foods compare with one another, you can do a quick Google search to see how they differ in calories, fat, protein, cholesterol, sodium, potassium, and other nutrients.


You can speed up some slow and old iPhones by replacing their batteries. Apple shocked everyone by admitting that as iPhones grow older, iOS slows down its CPU to avoid random shutdowns.

That’s right, your iPhone actually “throttles” its CPU depending on how degraded the battery is, making it run slower than it was originally designed to. All batteries in all electronic devices degrade over time. Even if you take good care of them, they will just degrade slower.

Unfortunately, your iPhone won’t warn you that its performance is being slowed down, so you won’t necessarily know for sure when it’s time to replace the battery. However, you can see if your phone is affected with an app called Geekbench.

If you’ve tried everything else and you have an iPhone that’s over a year or two old, it may be time to replace the battery. If you have AppleCare+, the battery replacement might be free. If not, an official battery replacement through Apple will cost $79, but that’s a lot cheaper than buying a new iPhone.

No, Closing Open Apps Won’t Help


We think it’s also important to dispel a widespread myth here: contrary to popular belief, “clearing your RAM” and closing open apps won’t do much of anything for general performance (though it can help fix an individual stuck app). In fact, closing all your apps regularly will force all your apps to start from scratch every time you open them, which will make things take longer—and drain more battery—not go faster.

Hopefully these tips will give you some improvements when it comes to giving your old iOS devices a new lease on life.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 When you get a new hard disk, you have to format it before it can receive data but what is the meaning of formatting, or what happens when you format a disk ? When you format a partition using the GUI or the "format" command or the good old Fdisk Windows will create a file system which means the disk is ready to accept data.

This file system is just a table which is called FAT (File Allocation Table) or NTFS (New Technology File System). This table will contain names and addresses of files stored on the disk. In other words, every file that you save, will have its exact location (physical address) on the hard disk. So when you save or place any file in the disk, Windows will create some numbers representing the sectors (very small parts of the disk) in which the file reside then place those numbers in the file system table. Then when you double click to open a certain file, Windows will take the file name then check the table to see the numbers (addresses) of the sectors where the file is located on the hard drive and then it Windows() directs the #head of the hard disk to move to those sectors and read their contents , after that the file opens.

When you delete a file, Windows removes the numbers (the address of the file) from the the file system table. That means , the deleted file is technically there on the hard disk but it's location is not known. The icon (not the contents) representing the file will be placed in Recycle Bin. The reference of the file is removed from the table but the file itself is there hiding somewhere on the disk. The sectors the file occupies will be marked as free (free space) that's why other new files can occupy those sectors.

When you use a recovery software, the software will bring the numbers back and put them in the table making the file accessible again. When you delete all files and re-format the disk then you will have "permanently" lost the files because the entire table will be gone. but even after formatting, there are some advanced tools that can #recreate the table with all its contents thus recovering all the data.
With many years of experience in SEO and web development, I have come to know that one of the secrets to building a successful blog or website is Search Engine Optimization (SEO). This is because you can boast of a successful website if more than half of its traffic come from Search Engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. SEO involves making your site to be search engine friendly by using the right tags at the right time and place and also avoiding all those things that search engines hate. The easiest way to optimize your website or blog for search engines is to use some SEO tools or software to test your site and improve its Search Engine ranking. One of the most important SEO tip you must do before you write any post article is to first carry out extensive keyword research. This will help you discover the most relevant keywords for that topic and how to use them when writing the article. This tutorial article reveals to you the 10 top, best, recommended SEO tools for your website, both the free and the paid ones.
