  • Ignore Keywords; GOOG Fail

    Back in September, Matt Cutts wrote a post on how Google does not factor in the keywords metatag in its web search results. For most, this came as a fat “no shit” moment. We’ve all smelled something funny for years — it just took animal control to pull the carcass…

  • Futureproofing Websites

    Recently, I had the pleasure of discovering that a former client of mine completely redesigned the website I had designed and built some years ago.

  • Damn Google and Their Sweet Apps

    First it was their search engine, their annoyingly heady gateway drug. Then a friend turned me on to Gmail, and I started the slow descent from casual user into full-blown junky, experimenting with all of their damnedly awesome applications, whether they even served a purpose in my life or not.…
