These Arms Of Mine

August 3rd, 2007 · 2 Comments

After all the fun of being on the set of a multi million dollar movie for most of the previous month, March was back to normal. Whatever normal is….Anyway I looked at web browsers, Digg, AdSense, blogging awards. Oh heck, just click on the link and read them yourself 😉

  • How Firefox Improved My Sex Life 300% – This was a bit of a tongue in cheek response to an article on Copyblogger. It was all a bit of fun but Firefox does really improve your sex life. No. Honest…
  • Death of Digg – I’m not sure whether it’s because there are more social bookmarking/voting sites available but Digg definitely doesn’t seem to be getting as much press as it once did.
  • 2007 Bloggies – I’ve given up on paying any attention to these awards now. They’re all pretty much fixed and it seems that political blogs always win.
  • New AdSense Model – Technically it was actually the new AdSense Referral model but there you go. It’s finally available in the UK and I’m going to start having a play around with it over the next few months. Has anyone else given it a whirl yet?
  • Is it always possible to make SEO sexy? – Sadly the carpet cleaning guy has decided to close down the website as he’s retiring to Spain so I never got round to making ‘Debbie Does Dalton’. :sigh:
  • Creating the ultimate WordPress robots.txt file – This is another one that I need to readdress following Big G’s tweaking of the algorithm regarding supplemental results. I still think it works well to stop them from accessing posts from multiple areas but I’m not sure if it’s working quite as well as I’d hoped.
  • How a blog search could cost you your dream job – There have been a number of stories in the UK newspapers recently about this, particularly referencing Facebook.

    Do you think that a carpet cleaner should be able to promote his business with a website? How would people know his site is there? Is it important to blog about carpet cleaning?

    The key thing is to do some research on search volumes and tailor your site to them. Have a look at vertical markets for inbound links and the most important thing…don’t drop comments on other peoples blogs leaving anchor text 😉
