Yahoo Podcasts, MSN Video, & Google Video Alerts? Oh, My!

Yahoo Closes Down Podcasting Site This made me kind of sad, but Read/WriteWeb reports that Yahoo will be closing down its 2-year-old podcasting directory effective October 31. Bummer. As the screenshot depicts, Yahoo doesn’t give any information regarding why they’re closing down the site, they simply offer an apology and expiration date. There’s been talk […]

Improve SEO With a Custom 404 Page

Coding Horror’s Jeff Atwood (No relation to Ryan) has a great post about Creating User Friendly 404 Pages (via Creating Passionate Users) and kicking those ugly, intimidating and worthless default 404 error pages to the curb once and for all. Jeff, we couldn’t agree with you more. Creating a unique 404 page really is one […]

Can Google Clean Up Its SERPs with AJAX?

Two recent finds really make me wonder how much longer it’ll be before we see an AJAX-based search engine results page from Google.
