How To Download And Use Your Facebook Information

Facebook has recently been under fire (a lot, I might add) for privacy issues and privacy concerns. I have even written about Facebook email privacy that has gone awry. Many people (not me) are concerned about what they share amongst their friends on Facebook. Some of my family members are concerned about other people (mainly the public) learning a

Search Engine Optimization - How you can Identify Search Engine Ranking Problems with Your Website

I often speak to individuals who declare that they are struggling from poor search engine rankings. Regardless of what you do, you simply can t discover your web site in Google–and sometimes it’s not just the keywords the websites is targeting, the website can t be discovered for the company’s name. In any situation, the website is definitely suffe

What is Next for Rod Blagojevich?

After 14 days of deliberations the jurors were unable to reach a verdict on all but one count in Governor Blagojevich’s trial. So the question on everyone’s mind who is following this case is what is likely to happen next. Before I attempt to answer that questions I want to recap a little history.

What your spam says about you

Yahoo Shopping to Outsource to PriceGrabber

In what I would call a surprise move, Yahoo! is discontinuing the Yahoo! Shopping and outsourcing it to PriceGrabber. So, if you are currently using the Yahoo!

Search Engine Optimization Tip 19: Move JavaScript to Extern

This is search engine optimization tip number nineteen. this search engine optimization tip is short: it is about what I would call code bloat. You do not want to have fat web pages that are full of code. For SEO purposes, we want thin web pages: pages that are light on code.

What I am Up to

I am still enjoying the sugar high off our Cookies By Design treats that they so generously donated to Steph’s baby shower this weekend. They were a hit, so look for more about them in an upcoming Baby Shower guide from Mama Speaks.

Adventures in Babywearing: Adventures In Surprises

Monetization Monday: Google AdSense 101

When a friend of mine first decided to use Google AdSense in his blog, I was skeptical - until about he showed me his first hundred-dollar check from Google. From then on, I was a believer. It took him just thirty minutes to show me what to do.

Google Tests Site Links Search with Microsoft

From what I can tell, and from the short amount of testing that I have done, the search box appears when you search for Microsoft at Google.com. It looks to me that it is nothing but a Google custom search engine, or simply a site: command search of the microsoft.com domain, which includes all of their subdomains.

USAToday and Forbes How to Screw up a Good Idea

So I’m cruising through my reader this AM and come across this piece on USA Today Hottest shows in Las Vegas. Lots of blah balh copy, but what I really want to see is the list of the 10 shows.

On top of that I now have to “next” through 10 different screens.
