How to find search keywords that leads users to your Website using Woopra

As I have mentioned before (here and here), Woopra is one of the best Analytics engine I’ve seen. I think you’d love it if you like to see real-time traffic to your site. Installing Woopra to your site is not very hard, use the guide here. I use it on my blog and find very interesting facts about what people search for on various search engines to land on my blog.

On a fine weekend, I wanted to fetch all the search keywords people use to come to my blog and save it per day in a file. I knew that Woopra provides API access (REST), and I wanted to write something quick to save this data. Instead of choosing C#, I chose Powershell to do this and just wanted to share the small script I came up with. (Pardon my dirty code, its just something I wrote very very quickly haven’t got a chance to clean it)

   1: Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Web
   3: $a = New-Object XML
   4: $today = Get-Date
   5: $currentDir = Split-Path -parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition
   6: $currentDir
   7: for($i=0; $i -le 3; $i++)
   8: {
   9:     $td = $today.AddDays($i*-1)
  10:     $dayString = $td.Day,$td.Month,$td.Year -join "/"
  11:     $strURL = "http://api.woopra.com/rest/analytics/getqueries.jsp?website=jigar-mehta.blogspot.com&api_key=XXXXXXXXXX&date_format=dd/MM/yyyy&start_day=" + $dayString + "&end_day=" + $dayString + "&limit=100&offset=0"
  12:     $a.Load($strURL)
  13:     $strDate = [string]::Format(".\{0:ddMMyyyy}{1}", $td, ".txt")
  14:     Write-Host "Fetching for" $td.ToLongDateString() "into" $strDate
  15:     "============================================================================ " + $td.ToLongDateString() | out-file $strDate -encoding UNICODE
  16:     foreach($iii in $a.response.items.item)
  17:     {
  18:         $strTemp = $iii.name -replace "\+", " "
  19:         [Web.Httputility]::UrlDecode($strTemp) | out-file $strDate -append -encoding UNICODE
  20:     }
  21: }

In order to use above script, you will need to replace website=”jigar-mehta.blogspot.com” with your website name and api_key=XXXXXXXXXX with your own account’s API key (You can get it at, https://www.woopra.com/members/settings/api.jsp?website=<YourWebsiteName>, assuming you are logged in).

It will create text files (something similar to following) in the same directory as powershell script with keywords that led users to your blog.


A sample output for single day queries to my blog looks as follows,

Help me Improve, by telling me what I am not good at


Ever wanted to paste what you copied 3 days ago? Get Ditto-cp best clipboard manager!

Have you ever wanted to paste something you copied before restarting your machine or say you copied before couple of days? For me, I rely heavily on clipboard. It’s probably the most frequently used feature on my machines, but Windows in-built clipboard is very limited. What I mean by saying that is, it remembers only what you copied the most recently. It happens to me a lot that I copied a string or a URL before some time that I want to paste again. With windows clipboard its not possible. Its worth mentioning that Office and Visual Studio implemented such functionality but they collect copied content only from inside their application. Its not windows wide. There comes Ditto-cp.

From their website, Ditto Clipboard Manager is,

Ditto is an extension to the standard windows clipboard. It saves each item placed on the clipboard allowing you access to any of those items at a later time. Ditto allows you to save any type of information that can be put on the clipboard, text, images, html, custom formats, .....

  • Easy to use interface
  • Search and paste previous copy entries
  • Keep multiple computer's clipboards in sync
  • Data is encrypted when sent over the network
  • Accessed from tray icon or global hot key
  • Select entry by double click, enter key or drag drop
  • Paste into any window that excepts standard copy/paste entries
  • Display thumbnail of copied images in list
  • Full Unicode support(display foreign characters)
  • UTF-8 support for language files(create language files in any language)
  • Uses sqlite database (www.sqlite.org)

The way it works is, the tool keeps running in the background and keeps collecting all kinds of copied content in a SQLite database. When you hit a HotKey (I always configure Ctrl + Shift + V), a small window which looks something like following pops up where you can search for past copied content using keywords. For example, If I remember, the link I copied before 4 days was from amazon, I can click in the editbox at the bottom of Ditto window and type “amazon.com”, and ditto filters the content of top list with words amazon.com within it. From the filtered list, I can see what I want in my clipboard and just double click on the line I am interested in. What that will do is copy that content to current clipboard. That’s it, I can paste it to whatever application I want because my clipboard now contains that URL.


Try it out and let me know how you like it. Its one of the first tools I always install after getting a new machine. Can’t live without it. If you know any other better tool for this, leave a comment. The most important feature request for an ideal Ditto like software is, web-syncing so, content copied on one machine shows up on another machine too (magically). Of course, privacy is big issue when it goes to “Internet”!

How to write in Gujarati without installing any software

Sometimes, when I have to write a few words in Gujarati, I use following method to quickly write them without installing any software on my system.

Go to Google’s Transliterate website and select Gujarati from first combo box in the toolbar.. Writing gujarati in this tool is very very simple. All you do is just start writing english spelling for any gujarati word and when you hit Space or Enter key, it will convert the word to Gujarati equivalent. Good part is, if you think the word it understood is not correct, hit backspace and it will give list of options to choose from! At least try it out if you know Gujarati!

Say for example, I have to write “કાગડો”, I just need to write “kagado” something like screenshot below,


when I hit space, it gets converted into,


and in case if I find that detected word incorrect, I can hit backspace and it will give me menu of all possible words from which I can choose with just one click.., which looks something like following,


What I generally do is, write words or sentences in Google Transliteration tool and finally copy the written words into clipboard and paste it anywhere I want (say in Blogpost, comment box, document or anywhere!)

Enjoy writing in Gujarati!


PS: You can use this same tool to write in other Indian languages too! At present the tool supports bengali, gujarati, hindi, kannada, malayalam, marathi, nepali, punjabi, sanskrit, tamil, telugu and urdu languages.

How to embed Excel document on your website

It is a very little known fact that you can use Office Web Applications to embed either entire excel document or part of it (Like just a chart) on your web page.

As an example, I have posted just a chart from my excel file below.


Step by step instructions are here, and somewhat advanced information about how to customize whats shown in embedded area is here. Those embeded sheets can even  be interactive like one below,

How to change Recent Posts or Drafts location in Windows Live Writer

I think Windows Live Writer is the best tool available out there for Blogging on Windows Platform. I’ve been using it from the very first beta version and have seen it improve a lot since its inception. One of the features I like about WLW is ability to go to any past post and modify/add content in it. Also, the UI is designed in such a nice way, it makes it very simple to open recent posts using Live Writer main menu. Internally the way this feature works is, all recently posted blog articles are saved as *.wpost files in C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\My Weblog Posts\Recent Posts folder. It is a very good feature. But as we use more than one machines in our day to day life, recently posted article on one machine doesn’t get available to another machine. There is an option to open recently posted items from Open menu but its little bit time consuming.

Anyways, ideal solution according to me would be that anytime I post a blog article, wpost file for that article should be there on all my machines. Well, I’d like to use Dropbox to sync wpost files to all my machines but the problem is Windows Live Writer does not allow you to customize the folder where it saves those wpost files.

I recently found a hack while reading a forum that there is a key which if you set, you can customize the folder where writer will store/load the wpost files. The Registry location is as follows,

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Writer

Create a string “PostsDirectory” and set the value to path where you want to save wpost files (In my case, I’ve set it to a folder in my Dropbox folder)



Next time I want to modify or add content to any of my previous blog post, I just need to open wpost file for that blog post from my dropbox folder. No matter what machine I want to do that from!

દિલ પુછે છે મારું, અરે દોસ્ત્ તું ક્યાં જાય છે?

Just got this one from a friend, worth giving thought!


ના વ્યવહાર સચવાય છે, ના તહેવાર સચવાય છે,
દિવાળી હોય કે હોળી, બધુ ઓફિસમાં જ ઉજવાય છે.

આ બધું તો ઠીક હતું, પણ હદ તો ત્યાં થાય છે
લગ્નની મળે કંકોત્રી, ત્યાં શ્રીમંતમાં માંડ જવાય છે.
દિલ પુછે છે મારું, અરે દોસ્ત્ તું ક્યાં જાય છે…

પાંચ આંકડાના પગાર છે પણ પોતાના માટે પાંચ મિનીટ પણ ક્યાં વપરાય છે,
પત્નીનો ફોન બે મિનીટમાં કાપીએ છે, પણ ક્લાઈન્ટનો કોલ ક્યાં કપાય છે.

ફોનબુક ભરી છે મિત્રોથી, પણ કોઈનાયે ઘરે ક્યાં જવાય છે
હવે તો ઘરનાં પ્રસંગો પણ હાફ-ડે માં ઉજવાય છે,
દિલ પુછે છે મારું, અરે દોસ્ત્ તું ક્યાં જાય છે.

કોઇને ખબર નથી, આ રસ્તો ક્યાં જાય છે,
થાકેલાં છે બધા છતાં, લોકો ચાલતાં જ જાય છે.
કોઇકને સામે રૂપીયા, તો કોઇકને ડોલર દેખાય છે,
તમેજ કહો મિત્રો, શું આને જ જીંદગી કહેવાય છે?
દિલ પુછે છે મારું, અરે દોસ્ત્ તું ક્યાં જાય છે…

બદલતા આ પ્રવાહમાં, આપણા સંસ્કાર ધોવાય છે,
આવનારી પેઢી પૂછશે, સંસ્કૃતિ કોને કહેવાય છે.
એકવાર તો દિલને સાંભળો, બાકી મનતો કાયમ મુંઝાય છે
ચાલો જલ્દી નિણૅય લઇએ, મને હજુંય સમય બાકી દેખાય છે.

દિલ પુછે છે મારું, અરે દોસ્ત્ તું ક્યાં જાય છે?

How to format / wipeout Chrome OS (CR-48)

Last week, I was playing with different settings for Chrome OS Laptop given by Google (also called CR 48). While playing with various settings, I changed the UI language from English US to Hindi (Indian Language).  At the time of change, it worked correctly and I could browse through internet pages. But after I restart the laptop, the machine seem to hang. What I mean by hang is Chrome browser was responding (UI) but if I try to open any page (including any internet page or even settings or about page from browser wrench icon), So, I couldn’t even restore the UI language to English. I tried to restart the machine couple of times in hope that it will recover but it did not.

So, I thought I will need to “format” the machine and start from scratch. Because all the data lives in the cloud (including browser and OS settings), I was less worried about the data (which was actually good and big relief!)

I started searching for resources on how to format the machine and re-install the OS again! I could not find any useful information but after reading a lot of information, I found this page on Google Chrome OS help. Tried the instructions and they worked. I’ve copied the instructions (for windows platform) here as well.


  1. Click this link to download the image: https://dl.google.com/dl/chromeos/recovery/cr48-beta-recovery
  2. Extract the .bin file from the .zip you just downloaded (e.g. chromeos__x86-mario_recovery_beta-channel_mp.bin).
  3. Download a Windows image writer tool (e.g. Image Writer for Windows Note - when using this tool you may have to manually rename the image file to end in '.img' )
  4. Follow the instructions in the image writer tool and choose the download binary file (e.g. chromeos__x86-mario_recovery_beta-channel_mp.img ) to burn to a USB disk.

Once you have the USB disk ready, plug it into Chrome OS laptop and cold boot the machine. It will wipe out everything from the machine and re-install the Chrome OS.

Google Chrome Extensions I can not live without

Here I have mentioned the Google Chrome extensions, I use almost every single day. As I start using new ones or stop using any (because of better option) I will keep updating following list.


Browser Extensions are great when you only have the ones you regularly use. My rule of thumb has been every once in a while (once every 3-4 weeks), I go and check is there an extension I haven’t used in last one week, if there is, see if it can be removed. If you have suggestion for any other good Google Chrome Extension OR better option for any of the above ones, please leave a comment.

Gujarati Natak : હદ કરો છો હસુભાઈ (Had karo chho hasubhai)

Hasu “a wimp of a man” who dare not open his mouth not even to yawn in front of his wife is the son of a famous divorce lawyer, a widower. Hasu keeps wondering how his father is able to untie the Gordian knot of marriage for many couples, but does not seem to be interested in freeing him from his Amazon of a wife. When his father's clerk remarks offhand that getting his father remarried is the solution, Hasu takes it up wholeheartedly, leading to situations, some funny and some hilarious. A more than- a laugh a minute comedy.
