Keyword Tools again

In 2008 we dumped a tool we were using at work for ranking and competitor analysis. I used my old dog site as a research tool, knowing that it had good rankings for a particular keyword phrase, and seeing how accurate the tool data was by comparison. Wrote about it here A couple of years...

Updating a site. Aga...

Ouch. Just noticed that I hadn’t posted here since 2014. I was shamed into a site update this week. I casually mentioned my Mistress of Mocktails site to a guy at work who was doing Dry July to raise funds for cancer research, when he commented how old it was. It’s pretty bad when...

My hijacked domains

Javascript hack Jan09

Javascript hack

Mike at work sent us all an email with this Javascript hack. It doesn’t do anything dangerous – just makes the images dance around in a circle. It didn’t work on Firefox for me – just IE. Step 1: Visit any website (with images) Step 2: Erase the website URL from the...
