Ranking for a Search Phrase in Google

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

I guess by now you’ve noticed that I’m not keeping up with the 1 post a week rate that I had for a while there. I’ve been thinking that at this point I’m going to be getting in one a month or so. More if the mood strikes, but from what I’ve been seeing that [...]

PHP Link Directory and Importing Links

Monday, April 28th, 2008

I’ve fought this evening with Php Link Directory. I had a list of addresses I wanted to add in bulk and managed to string together the correct format of a csv file for import. It’s somewhat of a long story, it started with lynx dumping the source of a web page, sed trimming just the [...]

Web Site Promotion Through Directories

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

When I first started building web sites I seemed to have very good “google luck”. I designed pages, published and then submitted to 4-5 search engines and a couple directories and the traffic started coming in. The search engines were altavista, google, hotbot and a couple others and the directories were yahoo and dmoz. Lot’s [...]

So many browser tabs, so little time – the swirling vortex

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

The last few weeks have been fairly eventful and I’ve accumulated quite a few web pages open in tabs that I’m still holding open (just counted 49 tabs across two windows.) Many of these things are just for my own memory and others will be posted because I thought they’d be of wider interest. For [...]

Link spam surge….

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Spam spam spam spam…. the last couple days have been busy for the akismet spam plugin for my sites. They’ve been catching a lot of spam comments it appears.

There’s no better way to say it, netcat is SOO useful, and there is an encrypted variation… cryptcat, you can do quite a few interesting and useful things VERY easily with these two utilities.

Clearing the deck….

Tuesday, October 17th, 2006

As you mgiht can tell, I’ve been trying to “clear the deck” of posts that I’ve been meaning to put up. Some are just links to several pages that I’ve kept up for a few days because it was interesting. But just so you know we’re in the midst of a post flood.    Send [...]
