There are lots of ways to share your favourite posts. Some people Tweet them. Some like to share them with their FaceBook buddies. Because of the SEO benefits of having images in your posts there are a lot of bloggers out there happily sharing their stuff with Pinterest as well. Personally I like to share my posts with all of them but my favourite is StumbleUpon. If you”re not a member you can join here.
StumbleUpon is a discovery engine (a form of web search engine) that finds and recommends web content to its users. Its features allow users to discover and rate Web pages, photos, and videos that are personalized to their tastes and interests using peer-sourcing and social-networking principles.
I was at work yesterday and I was having as good a time as you can have when you’re at work. Until the boss came up to me and asked me to go on checkout. I told him I wasn’t comfortable doing that as I hadn’t received enough training. Typical bloody boss wouldn’t listen to me and made me go on anyway. Said he would be right there with me to help me out.
Wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I got on the wanker left me there. Needless to say things went downhill from there. The customer didn’t want some stuff and I didn’t know how to remove them from the total. Then the credit card wouldn’t take and I didn’t know what to do. I hate not knowing what to do and looking inept in front of others. I did the only thing I could do in that situation and I blamed it on the company for not training me properly so I could provide her with the good service she deserved.
After logging off the boss saw me and asked me how it went. I told him it was crap and if he ever put me through that again I’d be looking for another job. I used to work for this company many years ago and in those days their training was exceptional. Not so these days. Read the rest of this entry
I wrote a post some time back about Charging People For Removing Their Links. The reason I’m getting all these requests is because these guys have all been notified that they’re in violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. This is a bad thing, especially if your website is business related. The reason being that once you get on the almighty Google’s bad side you’re site can be delisted from the Google search engines.
Here is what Google has to say about it.
Violations of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines
Your page has been blocked from our index because it does not meet the quality standards necessary to assign accurate PageRank. We cannot comment on the individual reasons your page was removed. However, certain actions such as cloaking, writing text in such a way that it can be seen by search engines but not by users, or setting up pages/links with the sole purpose of fooling search engines may result in permanent removal from our index. Please read our Webmaster Guidelines for more information.
While there can be a lot of reasons why these guys are in violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines, the point that interests us is the one where people have been trying to rig search engine results by using unscrupulous back-linking techniques.
Last week I wrote a post called Is CommentLuv Bad For SEO? That post was necessary because of posts out there which were writing crap about a great plugin. Perhaps this misconception has come about because a lot of requests from Googles to remove such links so as to appease the Google’s Webmaster Guidelines, were being found in the comments! This has nothing to do with CommentLuv and everything to do with the people leaving the comments.
