Free Domain Name!

May 15, 2009

Grab a free .co.cc domain name over at http://www.co.cc. There are also many websites that will give a free subdomain name such as 000webhost.com but you will have to use their hosting (for the subdomain). Hope this helps!

Adsense Tanking? Is There a Future?

May 10, 2009

If you have noticed your Adsense earnings decreasing this last month or so, you may not be alone. As a matter of fact I’ve been able to find many threads across the net, particularly at Webmasterworld on the decline in earnings many are beginning to see, and in some cases dramatic decreases (80% or more).

Google hasn’t released anything officially yet, but many are reporting CTR (click thru rates) decreasing dramatically as well as earnings and also many PSA ads being shown where normal ads originally were. So will this trend end or continue after bottoming out?

Here are a few if you were concerned with your Adsense earnings:

Testing Out Twitter (Finally) and SEO Results

May 10, 2009

So I have finally broken down and gotten a Twitter account, not for my personal use but more for my Country Music Blog, which will give followers a chance to see updates to the site from their Twitter accounts, (which I figured would be convenient for them to do so).

I’ve written an article (short) on how Twitter will be using a new search feature at New Twitter Search. And I will attempt to keep my viewers updated, as well as track my progress on Twitter and the Social giant, and possibly document the things which I discover in the process. Wish me luck. Oh by the way, if anyone cares the link is http://twitter.com/Country_videos. I shall endeavor on this new Twitter journey hopefully picking up some useful tips along the way!

Cheers,


Twitter Search Making Changes

May 10, 2009

Twitter search has announced that it will begin indexing tweets links and optimizing results on not only a chronological time frame, but also based on their own “reputation” ranking (probably somewhat similar to Google’s popular Pagerank technology), probably ranking those with higher numbers of followers along with other factors higher up in certain rankings and results.

What will this mean for the popular social engine platform? Only time will tell, but maybe an even greater follower, (or abandonment), based on how current members and future members react to the new changes from the social media giant.

What do you think?

Firefox 3.08 Released Today

March 30, 2009

A couple of security fixes but nothing major. It should upload and install once opened today (if you have automatic updates on).  I guess the bigger news is the newer release of IE8 😉

Learning the Mod_Rewrites

March 10, 2009

Ok, so I’m taking my time and slowly, (sometimes painfully but joyfully) learning the Apache Mod_Rewrite rules. Wish me luck!

Hopefully I can get this working!
