a way to segment & use nofollow sites & links ?

i know that you can select just dofollow platforms, or mostly dofollow platforms in the engine selection when you start a project.
uncheck engines that do nofollow links 
& i know there is a tick box under
project>options
that you can select only dofollow links if you want,
but if you were to do both or one of these, & only post to dofollow sites, is there a way to select all of the nofollow sites that are left ?
i.e. use all the dofollow sites for main part of project, build dofollow tiers to etc, & use the nofollow sites that are left as a seperate project linking to same money site but just used to mask/diversify the link profile etc .
because i have built tiers (this is one example)
contextual – select platforms that use mostly dofollow when starting project)
contextual – select platforms that use mostly dofollow when starting project)
tier 3 (everything else etc)
and you end up sometimes getting
tier 1 dofollow
tier 2 nofollow
tier 3 dofollow
so you lose the dofollow from the 2 bottom tiers because a nofollow link has slipped in to tier 2.
i dont tick the box under
project>options
that you can select only dofollow links if you want, 
& at start of project
uncheck engines that do nofollow links>also uncheck engines that create both dofollow & nofollow links
but if i did all these, is there a way to select everything that is not being used in these projects because they are nofollow links ?

Find WordPress sites hosted by specific hosting provider

I’m looking to potentially upgrade my WordPress hosting to improve performance. I’ve read through How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?. However, before moving my site to a new provider, I’d like to "test" the hosts’ performance prior to signing up.

I know that it’s possible to lookup who hosts a particular domain, but are there any tricks to doing this in reverse? I.e., is it possible to look up what domains are using WordPress hosted by a particular hosting provider?

How to better manage Qualys WAS for 30 sites that are scanned monthly

I was giving the responsibility of a Qualys WAS. There are around 30 sites I need to monthly scan, and check alerts. I need to automate all this process so I’m thinking on this

  1. Create a script or application that could easily schedule and start the scan of the sites

  2. The same app will also pull the reports from Qualys WAS

Now it comes to the issue:

I need to report on the issues found. And have those reports where they could be accessible for compliance reasons.

What do experts do about this?

  • Is the best option to create an application that pulls the issues found from Qualys and later, presents them in a system or DB, with a web interface easy to be validated and share with people who need to access that info?

  • Do you think that having 30 sites, scanned monthly, validating issues found, and doing some other administrative stuff to keep this part working as perfect as possible, do you think just one skilled engineer is enough 100% on this? Or do you think I will need to ask for more people?

Staging Sites: What to push through?

I have a staging site where I am improving the theme and layout, adding a couple of plugins to add a slide in navigation bar etc. The issue is that on the live site, people are signing and purchasing membership, plus some memberships are expiring etc. Oh and I’m with siteground.

My question is, how do I push through my staging site so that the users’ data on the live site persist? Is all user data stored in the same table? When pushing the new site is it possible to only push through the database tables that I have made changes to due to my development, leaving all other tables in tact from the live site?

Why certain sites don’t send newsletters to “anonymous” mail addresses?

I use an “anonymous” mail address (cock.li provider in my case). I have found that mainstream news sites in particular don’t send their newsletters to such an addresses. It looks like the domains blacklisted.

What is the reason? I can understand that they don’t want you writing comments from anonymous mail addresses, but passive reading of a newsletter is also prohibited?

Why this behavior? Why this behavior only with traditional mainstream news?

These newsletters usually have a lot of advertising and tracking, why they don’t wish to deliver them to “anonymous” addresses?

Why do modern sites frequently use JSON blobs client-side and construct the webpage in JavaScript client-side? [closed]

I have noticed something in later years. Instead of actually creating a HTML page, such as a table of data, on the server and sending the finished HTML page, they nowadays send a “minimal” (in a very broad sense of that word…) webpage which executes a JavaScript which in turn loads in JSON blobs which it then parses in JavaScript, client-side, to construct a webpage which is finally displayed to the user.

One side-effect of this, intentional or not, is that it often makes it much easier for me to “grab” their data since they frequently just “dump” their internal database’s fields to the client, even if they themselves don’t use all fields. So in a way, it’s like they are making it easier for people like me to automate things on their websites, whereas I used to have to constantly parse complex, messy, ever-changing HTML code.

So while I hate how idiotic this is from a logical/user perspective, as well as from a security one (depending on various factors), it’s actually “good” for me in a way. I just don’t understand it, since it’s significantly more work on their part and an overall extremely strange way of doing things.

Whenever I notice that a HTML page is “empty from content”, I always open the network tab in Pale Moon and reload the page, and then I see a “JSON” blob which I can study. It’s bizarre. It’s almost as if they are unofficially providing an “API” without mentioning it openly, but secretly they wink/nudge to us “powerusers”?

clarification of importing sites

on the individual projects i have :-

options>
tick box (yes) use urls from global site lists if enabled – identified & verified
(so it imports from global identified lists & shares the verified lists

on global options
“build site lists that can be used globally by each project”
identified & verified ticked

i then right clicked on project > show urls> show stats about remaining urls
& project said 0 urls left

i then imported sites from a .txt list
right click on project>import target urls>from file

let gsa ser go through all the urls
i then right clicked on project > show urls> show stats about remaining urls
& project said 0 urls left

then right click on project>import target urls>from identified list
& it says 57630

so could you please explain what gsa does in “global site lists” on the global options & the individual projects.

ultimately i want to import urls (whichever way is best / fastest), let gsa go through them & then gsa will share the verified urls
between each project without doing any other importing.

What affordable/reliable hosting to migrate from Bluehost WordPress sites?

Hi there, I am thinking about namecheap since they show the process is easy using CPanel: https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/9539/2199/how-to-transfer-from-bluehost

but I am sure this won't be that easy and the WP sites may break?

can you please recommend from your experience a reliable hosting provider that was easy and secure to make this migration?

thanks in advance
