Google and web 2.0 democracy

Warner Todd Huston blames Google for freezing the anti-Obama blogs that were made on the “Bloggbarack-obama.jpger” platform.

It’s official, Google decided to be for Barack Obama, so the guys from this company thought that their best contribution would be to close all the anti-Obama blogs that contain different rude posts, blogs that were made on the Google’s blogging platform called “Blogger“.

What do I think about this? To be sincere with you, I don’t really agree with the Google’s decision of taking down the anti-Obama blogs because we live in a free world and I am sure that there will always appear pros and cons, no matter what subject would be.

If you ask me, I would recommend Google to start a nice, friendly campaign on AdWords for Obama’s official site.

The ideal structure of the permalinks

A permalink is the link for a blog post. The default structure of the permalinks for the blogs that run on wordpress is the following: http://example.com/?p=n, where “n” is the number of the post.

I recommend you to change it because this is not relevant at all. The keywords in the structure of the links are very important because of two reasons:

  1. SERP
  2. User orientation

There are may discussions on the internet related to the ideal structure of the permalinks but nobody knows for sure what that is. Here are the two most common structures that I found on many top blogs:

  • http://example.com/2008/06/29/post-name/

To have your permalinks like this, all you need to do is to log in into the wordpress control panel, then go to options->permalinks-> and here choose “Date and name based”.

This is a very good structure but I don’t like it for one reason. For a better orientation, the category should appear too, but then, the links would be way too long.

  • http://example.com/category-name/post-name

This is the structure I use and I recommend it to you too. If you want your permalinks to be like this, log into the wordpress control panel, then go to options->permalinks-> and here choose “Custom, specify below” and in the “Custom structure” box write /%category%/%postname%/ .

Like I said before, maybe the ideal structure of the permalinks would be the one that has the date, category name and post name integrated in it but it would be way too long!

Careful with entrecard!

For the ones who don’t know what entrecard is, let me tell you. Entrecard is an innovative system, basically it is a banner exchange system, pretty efficient I can say.

As I came across entrecard’s blog today, I saw that they got really mad on the users that try to fool the system. So called “Power Drop” pages are not allowed anymore, and if you have a page like that you must delete it until the first of July, else, you will be banned.

A “Power Drop” page is usually a blank page that has installed on it only the entrecard widget. Here is an example:

Top 5 best ways to copy at school

If you are tired of studying all day long, I have some good and simple methods that will help you get good grades without even reading a book or something. Notice that I don’t encourage copying at school instead of learning, because without learning you won’t be successful.

– The scrip integrated in the pencil

scrip-integrated-in-pencil.jpg

This method is a little bit expensive, efficient but it has a big disadvantage – many information won’t fit in a pencil. Ok, so to do that you need to buy a big pencil. Do you know that type of pencils with 5 or more colors, a pencil with many lamellas in it? Ok, buy one! I had a pencil like that and on each lamella I stuck a thin small piece of paper and rolled it. When wanting to copy, just pull that paper and it will roll out.

– The first high-tech copying methodmobile-phone.jpg

Forget the oldschool! If you have a good cell phone with a camera integrated in it, a camera that works very well, then you must try this method because it is very efficient. I think you know what you have to do. Just make some pictures of the papers you have to learn. While on a test, pretend that you are trying to see what time it is or you are using the calculator on your phone, but, actually you are copying, haha!

– The second high-tech copying method

Another high-tech method is the one with the hands-free. To do that, you have to record your voice while reading the papers you need to learn, upload the file on your mobile phone, and then listen to your voice when you have the test. Or, if you have a good friend, you may ask him to call you and read you what you need.

– The geek method

Here’s a geeky method. For this, you need a coke, a scanner, a printer, a computer, and a few photoshop skills. Here’s the video tutorial for this method:



– Old style method

Least but not last, the very old method – the standard copying style. All you need for this is one small piece of paper, and good writing skills because you need to write as small as you can. This is the fastest method, it doesn’t require you much time for preparation, but you risk to get caught.

Good news: new domain extensions available

I have some good news for you! ICANN ( Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ) thought thatinternet.jpg there aren’t enough domains available on the internet, most of the good ones are taken so there is a great proposal: .news, .sports, .ebay and more. This is very good because we all know that many good domain names are taken, so if you want to start a sports related blog you have to think hours and hours for finding a good domain name that is available but with this change you will be able to buy a domain that ends in .sports.

You will be able to buy the domain that is has the most related name to your website’s content. For example, if you wish to start a blog where you will write about IBM products, you will be able to buy a domain with the extension .ibm, isn’t that great?

It will be a little weird at the beginning, until we will get used with these new extensions, but we’ll manage.
