Nerdier than Thou

It happened again! I was reading Kim Krause Berg’s latest blog entry on Cre8pc “Celebrating Sexy Women Nerds” and saw the results of her Nerd Test. Last time I did one of these I out-geeked a whole bunch of guys who are really, really geeky (It was being able to quote Heinlein! I swear!) but […]

Make a Link

Its nice to rank well in all the engines, but Ask is one of the engines that matters least to me, as it seems to push very little traffic. (Poor Ask ) Lets see if we can help – click here to see lots of results about ME! OK, there’s an ulterior motive. Cristian Mezei […]

Another way out of supplemental hell?

Most of the forums have some discussion of supplemental issues going on at any given time. Lots of people seem confused by what it means and what they can do about it. Here’s my take on it: A page in the supplemental index hasn’t got a penalty, it hasn’t been ‘filtered’, its just that Google […]

Mapping the Mal Web

McAfee SiteAdvisor recently published a study into malware production by tld. Its an interesting little artifact – it shows a pretty strong correlation between a tld that can be registered by anyone and the production of malware (for broad definitions of “malware”). .info comes in at a staggering 73% of user registrations result in some […]

Blanks in Google searches

I just spotted an interesting Google search. Google searches full of spaces are interpreted as packed together. For instance running a search for laundrette c h a t s w o o d returns exactly the same result as laundrette chatswood but, pulling the spaces out entirely changes it entirely – laundrettechatswood returns no results […]

About PageRank

The common claim by the advanced SEO is that the average webmaster pays too much attention to PageRank. PageRank is the ‘score’ used by Google as one of its measures of the importance of a page, and plays a role in determining the ranking of a page in every SERP. However, its a tiny role […]

Meta: URL corrections

As I’ve started posting here again, I’ve taken the time to do a little tidying – I’ve implemented fucoder’s Permalink Redirect WordPress Plugin. The URLs here were silly – ‘p=id’ stuff. /yyyy/mm/name/ – much nicer :0 Its an easy plugin. I recommend it if you haven’t implemented it, or something similar.

Getting the latest data through Adsense

Its ridiculous how often some of us track our adsense earnings – really, logging in once a day should be enough. But Checking The Stats can become addictive – just one more update, to watch the numbers increase some more… It doesn’t mean anything and doesn’t change the total at the end of the month, […]
