MyTrickSource is now about SEO and Content Marketing

Let me introduce you first something about our Blog. Some of you might know about me that I am the owner of MyTrickSource and I Share Android Tips, Installation Guides and off course on Facebook, How to Easily Hack Facebook Account (a post in MyTrickSource Page) which I posted back in 2013. Though I do not post any hacking article as of now and this blog is no way to Hacking or Blackhat technique.

SEO and Content Marketing

Why I Changed my Niche from Android to Content Marketing?

Well, this might seems quite horrible. Android and Content marketing is completely different, Right? Let me explain to you what is the reason behind it. I was a JNV (Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya) Student, and I started Blogging back in 2010 during 2 Month JNV Vacation. I made some blog, and the following things occur:
  1. Failure in smartwinsoft.blogspot.com (2010-11)
  2. Failure in androidusercommunity.blogspot.com (2011-12)
  3. Failure in techdonor.blogspot.com (2012)
  4. Huge Success in MyTrcikSource.blogspot.com (1st January 2013 to 1st October 2013) (But left Blogging for two years)
  5. Penalized idroidhorizon.blogspot.com (2015-15)
  6. Got Penalized by Google in www.droidphoria.com (2015-17)
Failure is not a Big issue for the first three blog. I was completely newbie at that time. You might be thinking about number 4, right? As I already mentioned already, I was a student of JNV which is backed up by Central Government of India where no Laptops, PC or Mobiles are allowed. However, I did Blogging during vacations only. One of my JNV Vacation in 2013 was so lucky which made me drive 1300+ Visitor with more that 40,000-page view per day. What I did is, Pumped my Blog SEO with some Tricks which I learned from MyBloggerTricks. However, going forward, I got back to my FiveStar Jail (JNV) for studying Science. I left Blogging for two years (yes even on vacation, I did not Blog up) and there is no way to get even 200 Pageview per day on MyTrickSource.

After Completing Class 12 from JNV, I again started Blogging with the same topic “Android”. The Blog was iDroidHorizon, and I got quite Success as I was having some experience of MyTrickSource. However, the Black day of iDroidHorizon comes when I Shared Some Hacked/Cracked Games for Android. Google Kicked me out of the Clan (in COC Language), haha joking. You know that!

Again, I left Blogging for a year because I had taken Admission in Resonance for Engineering Coaching. Finally, in 2017, I got Admission in B-Tech as well as time to start Blogging again. Almost 40% of my Blogging knowledge washed away from my brain, and I had some old tips for SEO. I started droidphoria.com and the following mistake I did:
  • Successfully Builds some LOW-Quality Backlinks
  • Created very Poor Quality Links in some Unindexed  Forum (foum.oneplus.net, forum.xda-developer.com, etc.)
  • 100+ LOW-Quality NoFollow Backlinks by Blog Commenting on some cheap Blog (via DropMyLink.com Research).
Finally, New Google Update Penalized me which let me sell Droidphoria at a very cheap Bucks. On this Blogging Journey of 7 years, Whatever I learned Good from Blogging is Search Engine Optimization. This is the reason why I Changed my Niche from Android to SEO. MyTrickSource is going to Cover the following things from now:
  1. Content Marketing Guides
  2. DeCode the Secret of Pro SEO Techniques
  3. Remove the Anonymous Mask of Pro Bloggers
  4. Countless Coupons of various Hosting (like Bluehost, Godaddy, Dreamhost, Hostgator, etc.)

  6. MyTrickSource Weekly Giveaways

Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 USB Drivers

You will need to connect your Android phone with the computer. For that, please make sure you have installed the USB drivers for Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 properly. If not, you can download the latest official drivers from our Android USB Drivers section here:
Download Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 USB drivers!

Backup and Other Important Tips

Done with the USB drivers? Perfect. Now please take a look at the following tips and important points you need to take care of. These are important, as we don’t want anyone losing their personal data or apps:
Always backup your important data that you might need after you install a new custom ROM, an official software update or anything else. Make a backup for just in case, you never know when anything might go wrong. See below for some tips on how to backup data: 
Samsung users can also back up data using Samsung KIES. If you backup data manually, you get more options what to choose from and it is very easy to move data across Android devices from different manufacturers, i.e moving Samsung Galaxy S3 backup data to HTC One X.
    If you already have a custom recovery (ClockworkMod, TWRP etc.) installed on your phone, we strongly recommend a backup using that as it creates a complete image of your existing phone set up.

A few more optional tips that you should remember:

        1. Having problems connecting your Android phone to the computer? You need to enable USB debugging mode.

        2. Make sure your Android device is charged up to 80-85% battery level. Why? Because, if your phone goes off suddenly while installing a custom ROM, flashing an official firmware update or installing mods etc. — your phone might get bricked or go dead permanently. No one wants that, right?

        3. Most of the tutorials and how-to guides on MyTrickSource are for factory unlocked Android phones and tablets. We recommend NOT to try our guides if your phone is locked to a carrier, unless we have specified the carrier name or device model.
