Writing up the one year anniversary review of articles I’ve written about searching and search engines, I ran across this interesting bit I wrote in “How Google Ranks Websites”: Spelling is still important. Not that Google’s patented page ranking process includes a spell checker – words that are not recognized get dumped. If misspelled keywords […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Searching and Search Engines

Over the past year, I’ve written a lot about search engines. In many ways, they are the holy grail, the impossible dream, and the unsolved mystery. We are totally dependent upon them. In order to find anything on the web, we must go through a portal of a search engine. It is the epitome of […]

Your Comment Has Been Moderated – Stay Tuned for Approval

You come across a blog post you really want to comment on. You think out your comment, carefully type it in, check it for misspellings, and, when you are ready, you hit the submit button.

Power Blogging: Web Browser Blogging Tips

WordPress and many other blogging tools require you to interface with your blog through your web browser, be it Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, or whatever you are using.

We care deeply about accuracy, but it’s my experience that […]

Wearing Two Hats – Writer or Blogger?

I feel like I’m coming out of the closet, but I need to tell you that – yes, I know this is hard for you, and I beg your understanding – I’m a…writer. That’s right. I hate to admit it, but this is something you may need to know. Many people think I’m a blogger, […]

Pam Blackstone’s post on the “Blogging Phenomenon” brings up a very good point. …it seems like at least half the results are likely to come from blogs or from pages that look like blogs.
