It's a Waiting Game...

Waiting for clients...
Link Building image

If you're a web developer, Marketeer, SEO professional - or a florist - you know all about the "waiting game". Waiting for clients to come knocking on our proverbial door, asking for our services. & that waiting game can make you either second guess your skills as a professional & the quality of your code/store, or it will motivate you to use this time of waiting to streamline your sales process, manage that bloated code, & give you valuable time in quality link building.

Let's Move (our website)!

September 25th, 2019

Moving from one house to another - SHEESH!

Like so many of you all, I'm not a huge fan of moving from one place to another. Don't get me wrong, I'm always up for an adventure, but to pack your belongings into boxes, renting a moving truck, trying to get people to help, it is a hassle. But it's life, so here I go, moving....

So this got me thinking about my next article I'll be writing on this site - "Moving Your Website". It's one thing to just move to a new hosting provider, but when you also move from your existing domain name to a new one, there's lots of considerations to be made!

"do·main name: /dōˈmān ˌnām/, noun - the part of a network address that identifies it as belonging to a particular domain."

July 31th, 2019

Do you remember the browser wars?

"Netscape: Netscape was the first company to attempt to capitalize on the nascent World Wide Web. It was founded under the name Mosaic Communications Corporation on April 4, 1994, the brainchild of Jim Clark who had recruited Marc Andreessen as co-founder and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers as investors."

Quality Backlinking!

July 11th, 2019

How to gain great backlinks to your site!

"Link juice is the term used in the SEO world to refer to the value or equity passed from one page or site to another. This value is passed through hyperlinks. Search engines see links as votes by other websites that your page is valuable and worth promoting."

Search engines such as Google rate a website's "importance" from many factors, for which backlinks are an integral part of the value. But not all backlinks are all created equal. If you have many websites linking back to your site, but they are either "spammy sites" or good sites within their niche - but they are not relevant to your niche, then their "link juice" will not be very valuable.

Hand-coding XHTML on a Saturday

July 6th, 2019

Post 4th Of July...Post!

Happy belated Independence Day America! I'm literally sitting here hand-coding this blog post, content, css, & XHTML tags, thinking about how much God loves me, how much I'm looking forward to the future, how much my present is even blessed beyond what my expectations could be (& to "believe" without "seeing", that's amazing faith)! Plus, I'm very happy with the performance of my laptop. DELL Inspiron 7786 2-in-1 It's a DELL Inspiron 7786 2-in-1 & I've installed Ubuntu Linux as a dual boot. I've setup (as always) Apache2 Web Server, PHP Server, MySQL Server, as well as Android Developer Suite. So far it's been a great machine!

Ubuntu Linux 19.10 - I love it!

July 6th, 2019

Dual Booting Linux with Windows 10

I've been dual booting Linux with Windows since 2007. The distribution back then was Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn). I've upgraded through the years & now I'm at Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo). I've always dual booted though, so I could keep up with the most current version of Microsoft Windows (I'm at Windows 10 Home now) - that way I could trouble shoot & "fix" client computers/laptops/networks. But personally, I never ever do anything within Windows as far as coding and work - just running Windows update occasionally. You can read up on the history of Ubuntu Linux if you want...

Link Exchange vs. Affiliate Programs

July 3rd, 2019

I'm at it again!

Waaaay back in 2006 through 2010, I was running 70+ websites, 3 of which had Google PageRanks of 3 or better (PR6 was my best seller). Of the 3 websites that had good Google PR. Here's the official definition from the Google wiki on PR:

"PageRank (PR) is an algorithm used by Google Search to rank web pages in their search engine results. PageRank was named after Larry Page, one of the founders of Google. PageRank is a way of measuring the importance of website pages. According to Google:
PageRank works by counting the number and quality of links to a page to determine a rough estimate of how important the website is. The underlying assumption is that more important websites are likely to receive more links from other websites.
Currently, PageRank is not the only algorithm used by Google to order search results, but it is the first algorithm that was used by the company, and it is the best known."

Infolink Program

So that was then, & this is now. Many things have changed, especially in Google's search algorithm, but many things have stayed the same... So once again I have created my affiliate accounts as well as Google AdSense program. I've also signed up once again with Infolinks, a similar program to Google's AdSense. I have had success with them in the past, so I'm sure it'll be a lucrative partnership once again.

I'm at it again!

Dual Screen monitors

Waaaay back in 1995, when I graduated with an Associate Degree in Computer Science, I fell in love with HTMLHyperText Markup Language, with the "blink" tag being the main reason! Netscape was my browser of choice, and I began to hack web page form submissions & of course, create my own pages. Then I was hit across the head with XHTMLEXtensible HyperText Markup Language & CSSCascading Style Sheets - which made me get serious about my coding. Then as I learned about semantic web design, using web standards in my coding, I totally stopped using WYSIWYG editors, & began to hand-code everything myself.
