Review Existing Content
The best way to help is check our guides, try them yourself, and comment with some feedback (good or bad). These contacts are critical for ensuring we provide our visitors the information they need in a clear and accurate format. Our goal is to thoroughly vet and test the information in these guides before posting them and we would like to hear from you! As stated in our site’s About page, initially we created CoolGeeks101.com as a place to store details of projects we were working on for personal and professional projects for ourselves and a few of our consulting customers. What started as a nice, tidy place to store in-depth technical checklists and web links evolved into a full-fledged technical resource published as a gift to public audiences.
It is because of your comments to our articles and personal use of our material to help with your own projects that we have been able to add so much new content and improve our presentation style. We hope you like the material found on our site and find it easily understandable and reproducible.
The greatest contribution you can make to our future success is returning to visit our site and engage with our content.
We really appreciate seeing all the traffic coming to our pages from all over the world!
Yes, we have Google Ads shown on our site. Admittedly this is a very small amount of revenue, but still important to our overall business plan. Now CoolGeeks realizes that many Internet users scorn website ads and we certainly agree that some websites overdo the amount of ads on their sites. A few supposed “tech” websites even seem to be more of an advertisement delivery platform than a true resource for visitors interested in tech. CoolGeeks is dedicated to that not happening at CoolGeeks101.com, so we have taken reasonable steps to reduce the amount of Google Ads down to only those occasional and appropriate areas of the site. We use WordPress with a Genesis Framework child theme. There is built-in support for Google Adsense in Genesis themes which enables us to quickly embed advertisements in our pages and save time for our primary purpose — quality, cool technical information catering to the enthusiast market.
If you are really, really opposed to website advertisements, we can recommend the Adblock browser extension. It works great across the web to eliminate the spectre of ads appearing on your browser. Even so, we would ask that you enable an exception for whitelisting CoolGeeks101.com so our ads can be viewed. In case you are not aware, website owners get credit and compensation for just displaying advertisements. These are called “impressions” and the website owner gets compensated even if the visitor does not click on the ad. However, a visitor actually clicking on an ad is compensated higher than just an impression 🙂
Otherwise, you can help support continued content from CoolGeeks with a modest donation through PayPal. We use any funds from this source for web hosting, site development, technical research, and test systems
We are registered on the free service from Ko-Fi
PayPal is a very easy way to contribute
