What will the Additional Changes to the YouTube Partner Program mean to us?
Last year was tough for us, with several issues affecting our services, and our community on YouTube, we made a down-fall of 28% in total. Despite those issues we are not gonna discontinuing any of our services. But we will now focusing even more on our own perspective and products that we want to bring. That could lead to often uploads since we dont see potential enough to let YouTube be our main source/platform.
We have been working on changing the use of our services and the way how our systems will manage our datas, integrations an structuring. Also have we redone the builings of our SEO/CSE, that would make it easier for us to see what users are looking for, and what is relevant. So we can better our performance on searching and optimization, to give the best result were the users were looking for. Also is it now possible for us to serve Promotions / Advertisements through the CSE (Custom Search Engine), So we can target users and/or certain keywords of the results.
Also a multi-lingual website is on it's way. Where our site slowly will change towards a better and easier to understand worldwide experiences for our visitors/users everywhere!
We're also happy to announce our first steps on building our own OAuth2 authorization for users. The standard browser-based or mobile app, that is usually accomplished by displaying an interface provided by the service to the user.
OAuth 2 provides several "grant types" for different use cases. The grant types defined are:
Our Web Server Apps are the most common type of application you encounter when dealing with OAuth servers. Web apps are written in a server-side language and run on a server where the source code of the application is not available to the public. This means the application is able to use its client secret when communicating with the authorization server, which can help avoid some attack vectors. also have we updated our SSL/HTTPS certificates for emails, sites and services.
An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a digital certificate that identifies the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server with SSL technology. Encryption is the process whereby data is scrambled until it is unreadable. This data can then only be made readable again with the correct decryption key. A certificate is a sort of electronic passport that determines the validity of an entity when shopping online. When a user tries to send confidential information to a web server on the Internet, the user's browser contacts the digital certificate on the server to establish a secure connection.
An SSL certificate contains the following information:
Also have launched a new strict enforcement of regulations and bans against undesirable behaviors. Undesirable behavior is when a user tries to start arguments by upset other users, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, foul language, or off topic messages on all our service,. with the intent of provoking a negative response or disrupting conversation(s). Posting content such as promotional, spam, racism, pornographic, sexual, illegal, or hate content is not allowed on all our services. All content uploaded or provided to the GP | Networking Services must be family friendly. This is including but is not limited to: Avatars, Signatures, Attachments, embeds, posts, as well as messages towards other users. Harassing of Users and/or Staff through private messages and/or public services or any other form of communication is not tolerated, and in any kind unacceptable. Impersonating administrators, moderators, or staff in any way, shape or form via our services is not allowed.
Custom Searching and Engine Optimization
Custom Search enables us to create a search engine for our website, blog, or a collection of services. We can configure our CSE to search both web pages and images. We can fine-tune the ranking, customize the look and feel of the search results, and invite our members or trusted users to help us build our custom search engine. We could display advertisements and/or promotions. We can use your expertise about a subject to tell Custom Search which websites to search, prioritize, or ignore. Because who knows it better than the users itself, can tailor the search engine to their own interests.
We could default a page/site by hosting it by Google to show our results to the users, or we can embed search functionality directly in our websites. The following resources are available to developers who want more control over creating search engines and customizing the appearance of search results:
