The Irish Cop Friday Funnies #118

Hey guys, did you see last weeks Saturday’s Friday Funnies. Yep, I didn’t have time to post it on Friday so I posted it on Saturday instead. I know i’m biased but I reckon it was pretty bloody funny. If you haven’t read it yet you should head on over and give it a read.

As it happens that particular Friday Funnies was full of Irish jokes. I wasn’t planning on writing another Irish joke so close to the last one but I couldn’t help myself when I got this one in the mail. It is ROLF hilarious! :lol_tb:  

The Irish Cop

A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by an Irish cop. He thinks that he is much smarter than any cop because he is a lawyer from LONDON, and is certain that he has a better education then any Irish cop. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the cop’s expense!

The Irish cop says,”License and registration, please.”

The London Lawyer says, “What for?”

The Irish cop says, “Ye didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.”

The London Lawyer says, “I slowed down, and no one was coming.”

The Irish cop says, “Ye still didn’t come to a complete stop. License and registration, please, sir.”

The London Lawyer says, “What’s the bloody difference?”

The Irish cop says, “The difference is, the sign says stop, not slow down, so, ye havte come to a complete stop, that’s the law. License and registration, please!”

The London Lawyer says, “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.”

The Irish cop says, “Sounds fair enough, please exit your vehicle, sir.” Read the rest of this entry

External links are very important for many reasons, SEO not being the least of them. Something I don’t do nearly enough is link to other bloggers. I know I should but I don’t because I don’t have the time to do it properly. There are many really good reasons why we as bloggers should link to not only our fellow bloggers but to any relevant site that adds value to our post. 

The Importance Of External Links

Even though this fact has been out since February of this year I’ve only just come about it today. It was a video of Matt Cutts answers the following question.

Hi Matt, does the big G have a version of the search engine that totally excludes any backlink relevance? I’m wondering what search would look like and am curious to try it out.

Matt Cutts And External Links

We don’t have a version like that that is exposed to the public, but we have run experiments like that internally, and the quality looks much, much worse, It turns out backlinks, even though there’s some noise, and certainly a lot of spam, for the most part are still a really, really big win in terms of quality for search results.”

“We’ve played around with the idea of turning off back link relevance, and at least for now, backlink relevance still really helps in terms of making sure we return the best, most relevant, most topical set of search results.

Now I know Matt is talking about backlinks but as far as I’m concerned backlinks and external links are the same thing. They’re both pointing from one site to another. Without external links search engines would find it extremely difficult to find relevant information for  it’s myriad of users.  Google is trying to find a way of doing it but so far is failing.

external links

That is why linking to other bloggers, especially if it adds value to your blog is a great for SEO. Google needs and wants to know what you think is important and relevant because if it’s important to you it’s probably important to others as well.

That’s also why Google hates paid posts. Links within paid posts have little or no value, especially if the link has nothing to do with your post and is only there to fool the search engines.

That’s also why Google now looks less favourably on guest posts as it once used to. There are too many people out there writing guest posts for the sole reason to get links back to a particular site.

Remember how at the beginning of the post I said the reason I don’t link to other bloggers is because I don’t have the time to do it properly? This means that it takes time to find relevant sites to link to. You can’t just link to any site. As far as Google is concerned that is a waste of it’s time. If it’s going to follow a link then it should be adding something to the post not just sending it off on and irrelevant tangent.

Are you taking the time to make sure your external links are relevant to your post?

Irish Humour Friday Funnies #117

OK, technically I missed the Friday Funny post yesterday, but honestly, it’s not my fault. You see I had this movie ticket that expired yesterday and not wanting to throw good money away I decided to use it. And so I went to the local cinema and watched X-Men, Days Of Future Past, in 3D too. I was a really cool movie. The when I cam home I had to work on the shower to prepare it for todays sealing work.

OK! Enough of that, on with this weeks Friday Funnies, albeit it’s being posted on Saturday.  :tongue_laugh_ee: Seeing how we all like a bit of Irish Humour. I know this to be true because my Friday Funnies Irish jokes have always proved to be really popular. :thumbup_ee:  

Irish Humour

One day an Irishman, who had been stranded on a deserted island for over 10 years, saw a speck on the horizon.

He thought to himself, “It’s certainly not a ship”

As the speck got closer and closer, he began to rule out even the possibilities of a small boat or a raft.

Suddenly there strode from the surf a figure clad in a black wet suit. Putting aside the scuba tanks and mask and zipping down the top of the wet suit stood a drop-dead gorgeous blonde!

She walked up to the stunned Irishman and said to him, “Tell me, how long has it been since you’ve had a good cigar?”

“Ten years,” replied the amazed Irishman.

With that, she reached over and unzipped a waterproof pocket on the left sleeve of her wet suit and pulled out a fresh package of cigars and a lighter.

He took a cigar, slowly lit it, and took a long drag. “Faith and begorrah,” said the castaway, “that is so good! I’d almost forgotten how great a smoke can be!”

“And how long has it been since you’ve had a drop of good Bushmill’s Irish Whiskey?” asked the blonde.

Trembling, the castaway replied, “Ten years.”

Hearing that, the blonde reached over to her right sleeve, unzipped a pocket there and removed a flask and handed it to him.

He opened the flask and took a long drink.. ” ‘Tis nectar of the gods!” shouted the Irishman. ” ‘Tis truly fantastic!!!” Read the rest of this entry
