It’s mine. They told me so!

My Google is being released today. Though, as Danny says, some might scream portal, really My Google resembles My Yahoo or My Jeeves as an aggregation of Google services into one place. If you have a Google account (Gmail, Groups or Answers logins will suffice), you can sign up for the page. Danny linked to […]

Google Adsense for RSS feeds

If you have an RSS feed on your blogs (and you should), Google’s AdSense would like to live at the bottom of your posts. Continuing their quest to monetize anything that doesn’t have an ad on it already (and if it can be pried up with a crowbar it is not nailed down), Google has […]

But he needs to keep his hands out of SEO because he sounds silly when he doesn’t know what […]

Interesting Thread

The Crea8asite Forums and Kim’s blog, Usability, SEO and Web Design, are two of my favorite resources for getting a broader view of website design, blending as they do SEO and usability. The blog post Search Engine Optimization Wins Over User Centered Design and the thread It’s the SEO that counts, not user centered design […]

Yahoo vs. FindWhat ends in mistrial

The lawsuit between Yahoo (as Overture) and FindWhat regarding questions of patent infringement ended in a mistrial this week when the jury was unable to decide on all counts. Yahoo chose to regard it as a victory, claiming that the undecided elements were not the most important ones. It wasn’t a very good week for […]
