So you're saying that all Windows users doesn't know anything or doesn't care about how the computer works?

And uhh... User Friendliness = Useless crap to you?

Google / Re: Why does Google seem to index blog posts so quickly?
« on: April 13, 2010, 09:54:41 AM »
Blogs by their very nature were meant to be daily logs or journals. So they are assumed to be updated frequently with fresh content (i.e. posts).

The majority of traditional web sites, on the other hand, typically are static in nature. Think about all of the real estate salespeople, plumbers, flower shops, buliders, etc. who have web sites. They pay designers to create a site and they typically remain that way for long periods of time until the next site redesign project. Ecommerce sites, news sites, etc. are in the minority of business sites IMO with dynamic, frequently changing content.

Even pinging Google and other engines is not going to guarantee that they index your new pages. The may come crawl and decide the page is still not worthy of being added to the index... especially if the content is a canned product description supplied by the manufacture in an XML product feed and/or if that page has few internal inbound links and no external inbound links.

IMO there are two ways to increase the crawl frequency of your site without using ping. The first is by constantly adding new pages which Google finds each time they return. If they notice each time they crawl your site that there are lots of new pages, they will come back for your scheduled deep crawl more and more frequently until they feel they have reached a balance between your content generation rate and their crawl rate.

The second way to increase crawl frequency is to increase your number of inbound links preferably to internal pages, not just the home page. At LendingTree their content changed infrequently but w/ 4.7 million inbound links (according to Yahoo! Site Explorer a while back) Google was crawling their site literally 24x7. Basically when they visit other sites that link to you for their scheduled crawls, they will follow the link from there to your site to see if the link is still good (200 Ok), has been redirected (301 or 302) or is no longer good (404 Not Found). So they follow the link from that site to yours and may even crawl a handful of pages while they are there. The more inbound links you have from other sites, the more often they are going to be crawling your site.

If your goal is to get and keep more pages indexed, then that is largely dependent on your site's internal linking structure (navigation links, contextual links, etc), deep links from external sites to internal pages on your site other than just your home page, and having unique content (it's more likely to get and remain indexed than some content that can be found on 50 other sites or other pages on your site like canned product descriptions).

i'm running windows 7 at work on a P4 with 1gb ram and 8mb integrated graphics. my WEI is only 2.7.

yet it runs like a dream, even with aero and all other effects turned on. zero lag, even with photoshop, word, and firefox open. windows 7 is a massive improvement over vista, and it blows xp out of the water.

xp is 8 years old. it's time to let it go.

« on: June 05, 2009, 09:34:11 AM »
Hi... A lot of people don't know about these great features on Google:

Calculator
Type in '2+2' or '2 plus two' or any sum and the calculator will give you the result.


Definition
Type in 'define' followed by a word or a group of words. Google will give you an accurate definition.


Currency Conversion
Type in '$5 in ' and the $5 will be converted to Yen.


Weather
Type in 'Weather London' and Google will display the forecast for the next few days.


Street Maps
Type in a full address and Google will display it on a map.


Site Search
Type in a keyword, followed by 'site:' and a full URL of a website. Google will search for that keyword in the site you entered.


Search By Number
Simply enter a number, such as a UPS or ParcelForce ID and Google will return the latest information about your package.


I'm Feeling Lucky Button
Google will automatically redirect you to the first result in your query.


Filetype Search
Enter a keyword, followed by ':' and it's filetype. Google will display results related to the keyword and in the filetype you entered. You can also view the results in HTML.

Thanks

PHP / Re: PHP File Upload Validation
« on: January 25, 2009, 12:03:56 AM »
Oh and by the way, the get_extension is a custom function incase you're wondering and think that may be the cause of this - it's possible but i don't think so as it returns the extension without the period so it returns "doc" not ".doc"

it's really frustrating me!

edit: thanks but that dosen't work :S

edit again: oh yeah and i do want to keep the validation for security reasons

edit again: i got it working, turns out i should of used an AND not an OR.. dunno why, dosen't really make sense but if it works it works ;P

PHP / PHP File Upload Validation
« on: January 02, 2009, 11:20:06 AM »
Hey guys,

Can somebody please explain to me, or help my solve this issue -

basically the following code works fine and allows you to only upload a .docx file but i want to allow for a lot more file formats.
Code: [Select]
if (!empty($file)) {
                $size = filesize($file);
                $filename = stripslashes($_FILES['upload']['name']);
                $extension = get_extension($filename);
               
                // Check file size and if file size is greater than allowed value create an error
                    if ($size > $maximum_file_size) { $errors[6] = "File must be under 10 Megabytes, please select a smaller file"; }
                // Now check the file format is permitted for upload, if not display an error
                    if ($extension != "docx") { $errors[] = "Invalid file type (.{$extension}) - please upload either a .doc, .docx, .pdf, .rtf, .txt, .xls, .xlsx, .csv, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .zip or .rar"; }

but this code dosen't work:

Code: [Select]
if (!empty($file)) {
                $size = filesize($file);
                $filename = stripslashes($_FILES['upload']['name']);
                $extension = get_extension($filename);
               
                // Check file size and if file size is greater than allowed value create an error
                    if ($size > $maximum_file_size) { $errors[6] = "File must be under 10 Megabytes, please select a smaller file"; }
                // Now check the file format is permitted for upload, if not display an error
                    if (($extension != "docx") || ($extension != "doc")) { $errors[] = "Invalid file type (.{$extension}) - please upload either a .doc, .docx, .pdf, .rtf, .txt, .xls, .xlsx, .csv, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .zip or .rar"; }

I've spend hours on trying to solve this problem but i just can't work it out! I know it's probably something really stupid and simple but i can't seem to find the problem any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Search Engine Optimization / Google/Yahoo Sitemap parsing timeframe?
« on: April 01, 2008, 03:55:00 AM »
Hello,

We're not SEO focused, and while I've done some googling to find the answer nothing is really defiant on this question:
How long until you start seeing links from sitemaps indexed within Google/Yahoo?

Last week I submited gzipped xml sitemaps to both Google/Yahoo, a total of 4 sitemaps with the first one having our priority links (home, about, contact etc, around 20 links) and the other three have 25,000 links within each. All formating of the xml is approved (by both Google/Yahoo) so I'm just curious to know how long others have waited until they start parsing/including these within the index.

My client has a launch date of this summer so I'm HOPING everything is fully indexed by then. We still have about 500,000 more links to include in sitemaps
