Google search results catching up…

Monday, August 7th, 2006

Some time back I complained about the Google indexing of the site after the Big Daddy upgrade. For a good while before Big Daddy, there was usually about a week delay between me posting and there being a full crawl of the posted page which was fairly impressive. Post Big-Daddy the coverage of even previously [...]

Google Maps upgrade

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

I’ve seen a couple places referring to some improvements in the way google maps handles zooming and so I decided to take a look in Firefox. The zoom handling of Google maps is the one thing that I’ve wished for an improvement in for some time. After noticing MSN’s virtual earth had the capability of [...]

Google Site: search issues

Friday, May 19th, 2006

This is interesting…. there’s been a lot of frustration among some (myself included) with the current state of Googles site indexing.

The Google Problem Part 2

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

If you know me…. you know I have a HARD time putting down a problem that’s unsolved. Even if it’s a problem that really doesn’t have a solution (in my control at least)… I have a tendency to look and analyze, turn it over and try and find out as much as I can about [...]

There are a couple news stories about a McAfee SiteAdvisor report about the search engines responsibility for sites that distribute malware. McAfee said Friday that the epidemic of spyware and viruses could be linked to search engines. According to research from the company, even seemingly benign search terms could bring up sites loaded with nasty [...]

Windows Desktop Search

Thursday, January 5th, 2006

I got a first look at Windows Desktop Search today (bundled with MSN Search Toolbar?) I was told that it was new on the system and had not been used. The systems owner didn’t know when it was installed and thought it must have been installed when he did a windows update. It looks like [...]

Search Engines Submission

Monday, January 2nd, 2006

This is what hopefully will be the begining of a series of threads on webhosting, web marketing, etc. The first topic up is search engines submission. (This may take several articles…) It’s important to get your web site up and mostly fleshed out before submitting to search engines. Why? Although many may take some time [...]
