Microsoft, can I have a Christmas present too?

Bloggers in the tech field – who Microsoft has decided are in the top tier of “influencers” – have received a lovely Christmas present – an Acer “Ferrari” Notebook computer preloaded with Vista Ultimate. So while Microsoft clearly doesn’t think I’m in that esteemed company yet, I’m wondering if I can ask for one? Can […]

The World’s Largest Treehouse for $7 million!

I thought I had treehouses pretty well figured out. Kind of like a cubby house except up in a tree, right?! Bart Simpson’s got one. Perhaps your Dad made you one as a kid too, right? Whatever. This is a whole different thing, baby!   When I first heard about this I figured it was […]

Pagerank with and without the ‘www’ – does it make a difference?

You wanna believe it does! Check out the difference between icq.com and www.icq.com. The latter has a PR8 and the former? PR0! I almost fell off my chair when I saw that. But I checked it twice and that’s what it is. So what to do about it? For me, it meant deciding which I […]

Gremlins and little foxes

Well it’s after midnight, I want to go to bed, but it seems WordPress wants to make my life miserable. Firstly I want to apologise to recent commenters who must be wondering why I haven’t approve their comments.

Google Trends, the English language, keyword research, and your baby’s fanny… err, bottom!

I was playing around in Google Trends today, comparing the terms “nappy” and “diaper”. And no surprise, diaper comes in well ahead of nappy, I assume because Google traffic is very favourably weighted towards American English speakers (and, err, typers), overall: You can immediately see from this graph that the proportions remain the same even […]

diggbait and PR

If you don’t know what Digg is you’re not serious about inbound traffic. I know what Digg is but I’m a total newbie to it’s finer points. And so this question after reading this ValleyWag piece on Digg “types”… If digg is all about linkbait and PR, then am I missing something or is digitalgopher, […]

I DO get hacked off with Conservative Christianity sometimes…

From this Washington Post piece: The Rev. Joel Hunter, pastor of a nondenominational megachurch in Longwood, Fla., said he resigned as the coalition’s incoming president because its board of directors disagreed with his plan to broaden the organization’s agenda. In addition to opposing abortion and same-sex marriage, Hunter, 58, wanted to take on such issues […]
