Yes folks, I’ll admit it. I love buying stuff online. It’s a problem. It’s just SO FUN getting a parcel at work and opening it up like a kid getting an XBox on Christmas Day.
My girlfriend also loves shopping online, and hardly a day goes by when we don’t wake up, reach for the iPad and see the sales of the day.
So for us the most awesome sites to shop at are: Read More »
This morning my iPhone battery was thoroughly discharged so I plugged it into my laptop USB port and continued going through my emails and generally looking busy. After about an hour, where I usually have a fully charged iPhone, I had a completely dead iPhone. There was no charge in the battery whatsoever.
I Googled the problem and decided that perhaps it was a software issue, so I did a hard reboot (holding down the power off and home button for ten seconds) and connected to iTunes. iTunes recommended a firmware reinstall which I attempted but unfortunately this did not complete as the battery was not charging!
Today I picked up the mantle of learning Google AdWords through the Google online learning centre. My goal is to become a Google Adwords Qualified Individual and be a card-carrying PPC (pay-per-click) expert. The way I see it, being an SEO is all well and good but without the search engine marketing skill you aren’t 100% digital ninja material.
My PPC hero in this quest will be my friend and ex-colleague, Gordon Choi. Check out his site if you’re into cool digital stuff.
Farewell Steve – you touched the world.
PageRank is something webmasters and SEOs often watch closely, even though Google says it is not important.
Even in October 2009 Google’s Susan Moskwa stated:
We’ve been telling people for a long time that they shouldn’t focus on PageRank so much; many site owners seem to think it’s the most important metric for them to track, which is simply not true. We removed it because we felt it was silly to tell people not to think about it, but then to show them the data, implying that they should look at it.
So, yes, it’s pretty to look at and can be used as a tool to market your SEO efforts to the uninformed, but really, there are bigger fish to fry than PageRank such as working on improving your SEO.
