I've been considering the use of Wordpress in creating a new website -- not a blog, but a full website. Somebody told me, however, that Wordpress can hinder one's SEO attempts. He says that Wordpress tends to introduce a lot of overhead, resulting in code that's less clean than one might generate us...

BTW, I should mention that they want to avoid the hassle of "submitting to thousands of directories and search engines." This strikes me as an overblown concern, since we should be primarily concerned about directories, rather than search engines -- and I do NOT believe that there are thousands of d...

Some colleagues of mine want to use some website promotion software -- supposedly for the purpose of automatically submitting their website to as many directories as possible. I'm very skeptical about this, as I do not believe it is reasonable to expect a piece of software to intelligently decide wh...

That doesn't strike me as being substantially different from using any number of online forums, though. I'm looking for something more like http://www.articlecity.com.

I just wanted to follow up on an earlier inquiry.

Clare, about how long does it typically take to get listed in your directories?

Post Posted: October 20th, 2004, 2:48 pm

Kewl! Looking forward to it!

Post Posted: October 20th, 2004, 7:18 am

Nope. Haven't familiarized myself with them yet, since webmastering and SEO are simply secondary duties of mine.

Today I submitted an article to ArticleCity.com. That got me wondering... is there any other place to which I can submit these articles? I understand that this is a decent way to gather incoming links in a legitimate fashion.

Thanks for the tip, madmonk. It looks like you have both directories and search engines mixed together. Have you ever thought about listing the directories separately?

Post Posted: October 16th, 2004, 1:04 pm

Thanks for the tips.

Say, Clare, how long does it typically take to get listed in your directories?

I noticed something odd with respect to Google rankings. When I search for a certain keyword, our company's website is ranked at #1 witn most computer/browser combinations. However, when I do the same search at home, using Internet Explorer and my home PC, we are consistently ranked at #2 instead. T...

just a thought... do you think it is common for people to skim over the page title/description displayed in the results??? therefore wouldnt it be more effective to focus on that rather than being first?? Well, the two goals are by no means mutually exclusive. I think that in most cases, one can ea...

Post Posted: March 24th, 2004, 8:55 pm

Interesting. How many people actually do such a thing? I know that I usually start with the very first search engine result, unless it is clearly not something that I'm interested in.

Post Posted: March 23rd, 2004, 10:07 pm

Oh, and also... I disagree that merely being on the first page is enough. It certainly helps, but I suspect that the top five will do better than the ones below them. They're certainly the first ones which will catch the prospective customer's eye. Again, do remember that customers don't just dispas...

Post Posted: March 23rd, 2004, 10:05 pm

I agree with moderator Axe. Also, I think that when people choose #2 or #3, it's because the top few sites present comparable products or services. In contrast, if you KNOW that your product or service is superior, then it's best to be at slot #1. This gives you a chance to present your wares before...

Hiya. I need to snag some company domain names for the following locations (if possible): France Germany Benelux China Japan I also need web hosting for some, but not all, of the domains which I'll be claiming. Any recommendations for a good domain name registration company that covers these nations...

I'm having a disagreement with a colleague regarding the importance of ranking high on a Google search (or any other search engine, for that matter). I'd like to solicit your opinions on this matter. My colleague says that ranking #1 is nice, but not very important. As long as you appear somewhere o...

Dashes, please. This certainly helps on Google, which doesn't seem to distinguish words that are merely separated by underscore characters.

So what your telling me is if I was telling you that "I went out to eat. I got a Big Mac." and you assumed I had a big mac to eat, but I knew I actually ate, then got a big mac to bring home with me, and insisted that was how it was, you'de tell me I was being unreasonable? Listen. Very. Closely. I...

Dekanos, when trying to prove a point please make sure you stick to the original one. The original one was compromised of three separate sentences, where the third sentence started with 'then'. The second and third sentences were connected by "then." The first and second -- the ones under dispute -...

Post Posted: February 29th, 2004, 7:38 pm

I do but you obviously don't, since you would call me an "unreasonable individual" if I thought that the "procuring [of] the haburger occured after eating". If you assume that it NECESSARILY occured that way, then yes, you are being unreasonable. Again, let me explain this. The fact that the procur...

Post Posted: February 29th, 2004, 7:31 pm

You might infer that, but that would be a false inference. A reasonable indivdual would NOT infer that all your eating occured before all your drinking. Rather, a reasonable individual would simply infer that you ate AND drank, without insisiting on any particular order to these events. A reasonabl...

Post Posted: February 29th, 2004, 7:25 pm

Again, if I say, "I ate. I got a Big Mac," this does not mean that procuring the hamburger occured after eating. No reasonable individual would insist that it does. I can't count the number of times that my parents went out to eat, and/then/also got something to bring home for me. But that's quite ...

Post Posted: February 29th, 2004, 6:07 pm

In the example you supply, the big mac is not an event itself, it is an additional descriptor belonging to the original action of eating. The Big Mac was not an event, but getting the Big Mac was. Surely that's not hard to understand. Again, if I say, "I ate. I got a Big Mac," this does not mean th...

No actually you said "He dies. Gets nailed to a cross. Then he come back." Thats like saying "I lit the match. I picked a match out of the box. Then I started the fire." And what's wrong with that? That's only a contradiction if you say, "I lit the match, THEN picked the match out of the box." Ther...

No contradiction there. I didn't say that he died THEN got nailed to a cross. I said that he died AND got crucified.

I think that live plants would be an excellent solution. So would adding a plecostomus, if your tank still has room for one. (Don't forget that these suckers can grown huge!) Alternately, you could get one of the smaller species of pleco, such as a clown plecostomus or a bushynose pleco. Or better y...

Yes, I did mean the backlinks update. Like I said, I'm new to this. I was thinking of the old Google system with the Googlebot performing an occasional deep crawl, while Freshbot did the more regular but shallow updates. Thanks for the estimate. The website which I'm maintaining has dropped in its r...

As far as PR and backlinks are concerned though, everyone has to wait the same amount of time for the dance which can happen every 21-27 days. Although there has been some strange occurences with the dance recently one was only 11 days Any idea when the dance is likely to start again? Like I said i...

Any recommendations for how to do this without PHP? I'll need to develop something similar for our company's German office, and sadly, PHP is not an option for us right now.

So very sorry. I'm new here.

And regarding Bailey and Jennifer... It's a WKRP reference. Remember the two ladies on that show?

I vote for Bailey.

I'm an engineer who has been forced into the role of webmaster, who has been forced to learn JavaScript on the fly, and who has been dusting off his old HTML books.

Post Posted: February 9th, 2004, 3:59 pm

Can anyone recommend a good JavaScript book? I had hoped to avoid doing this type of work, but it looks like I've been forced into doing so.

Post Posted: February 9th, 2004, 3:53 pm

Please don't hurt me. I'm still new to this whole webmastering thing, and I'm just now learning the ins-and-outs of Google prioritization. I'm sorry if this is a naive question, but... When are we like to expect the next deep Google crawl? I'm aware that this will vary, depending on the website, but...
