Periodic Table of SEO Ranking Factors

This has been doing the rounds and I’ve posted it in various places, but I have to say I do think it’s brilliant! The Periodic Table of SEO Ranking Factors offers a really good insight into it for anyone that hasn’t got the time to read the mountains of resources on the net.

To List or Not to List – Twitter is the Question!

Twitter introduced list functionality a while back, and I’ve used it a bit here and there (mainly so I can find the real life people I know on Twitter amongst the “noise”), but I wanted to start using them a little differently so did some research.

SEO Link Building, Spamming and Outsourcing?

I outsource some work overseas, but I’ve moved away from single contracts and now have someone on a regular long term contract to work with me, but this post isn’t about that, it’s about some of the spam I’ve been getting on this blog recently! I use both Akismet and WP-SpamFree to keep this blog reasonably clean of spam, but more has been getting through recently (well through to the point where it’s held for moderation). I wanted to tell you about the two most recent (and persistent offenders) Battery Man The most recent items are all about batteries and hard drives on my posts about MyXerver and my PINES USB Battery Pack. The spammer merrily went through several posts… Continue reading »

Startups – Feeling Blue and Dr Hue!

I’ve had a really busy week this week, so busy that I didn’t notice it was the Business Startup show at Olympia yesterday and today, I debated getting on the road early this morning and coming back early but as I have family here for the weekend it seemed a little silly.. So a little blue yesterday I browsed the web for some startup information to make up for it. That’s when I came across 24 Hour Startup, where a group of people from Nonsense have decided to build a web-based startup and launch it all in 24 hours.. I love this idea!! At midday yesterday they didn’t even know what they would be building, as of this morning it… Continue reading »

Facebook – All in Private?

Now before I start this – I don’t want you to get me wrong, I like Facebook, I like it a lot: I’ve got in contact with people I haven’t seen in years! I don’t have to send an email round to tell people what a fantastic holiday I had (I just post it and the photos and they can choose to look at it when/if they want to). I do have some gripes though… The amount of time-wasting people do on it. I scoot on have a look and scoot off (but then I  do have a billion and one things to do around the net!). The fact that people use it as the number one method of communication… Continue reading »

I've got a Hunch…

That’s a hunch, not a hump! I’ve just signed up with Hunch.com after reading Lifehackers review I figure anything that can help me answer some questions might be useful! The signup process seemed to take forever after I’d provided my details – though the site had just been mentioned in LifeHacker and had 283 views on there (that’s probably not including those on their Feed Reader that picked it up the same way I did!). Eventually it crashed with a 500 error, but I seemed to be logged in and able to navigate around my profile, it was only when I clicked “home” it ground to a halt again. So I navigated to You -> Tell Hunch about You, let… Continue reading »

Selective Status Updates on FaceBook

Maradona by Kusturica dvd I’ve never turned on Twitter syncing my Facebook status, I’ll be honest half of what I tweet I wouldn’t want as my Facebook status! Plus it would result in 20-30 status-updates a day! Alpha Dog move Diary of the Dead move Devakishor posted (and tweeted) today a great solution to this, after asking his Twitter followers for a solution. The solution to this appears to be Selective Twitter Status Application Final Voyage psp !
