I can predict keyword trends!

I know you must be wondering how exactly you can predict keyword trends.

Well, it’s now possible.

See, while most everyone out there is running all different type of reports with their latest, greatest keyword tools, all the tools have one thing in common.

They all pull one-dimensional data.

One keyword, one count number and no track record or history.

Today, that’s all about to change.

Now, you can actually look into a keyword and see whether or not it’s truly a winning keyword to go after.

Before, it was just a simple guess.

And I don’t think you would leave your online business to a guess, would you?

I didn’t think so.

In fact, I’ve arranged a tour for you to see this new service.

Now, before you start thinking that this is some brand new thing, it’s not.

It’s actually been tested by 2844 individuals already for over 6 months, so it’s really just new to the public.

Go ahead, check it out and see what I’m talking about.

You won’t be disappointed at all.

Best,

P.S.   I think you can get in for a lousy dollar, or something crazy like that.

The Definition of Love

by Andrew Marvell
(1621-1678)

My Love is of a birth as rare
As ’tis for object strange and high:
It was begotten by despair
Upon Impossibility.

Magnanimous Despair alone.
Could show me so divine a thing,
Where feeble Hope could ne’r have flown
But vainly flapt its Tinsel Wing.

And yet I quickly might arrive
Where my extended Soul is fixt,
But Fate does Iron wedges drive,
And alwaies crouds it self betwixt.

For Fate with jealous Eye does see.
Two perfect Loves; nor lets them close:
Their union would her ruine be,
And her Tyrannick pow’r depose.

And therefore her Decrees of Steel
Us as the distant Poles have plac’d,
(Though Loves whole World on us doth wheel)
Not by themselves to be embrac’d.

Unless the giddy Heaven fall,
And Earth some new Convulsion tear;
And, us to joyn, the World should all
Be cramp’d into a Planisphere.

As Lines so Loves Oblique may well
Themselves in every Angle greet:
But ours so truly Parallel,
Though infinite can never meet.

Therefore the Love which us doth bind,
But Fate so enviously debarrs,
Is the Conjunction of the Mind,
And Opposition of the Stars.

I’m Sorry to Everyone Who Knows Me But…

I would like to make this public apology to anyone who knows me. Everyone who knows me, knows my musical tastes. I have tastes that fit my age nicely. Well something happened on Saturday night…

I had just knocked up a nice chicken curry (low cholesterol kids, so don’t worry). I sat down in front of the TV (something a bit rare for me I know). I watched a bit of Michael Palin’s Europe then turned over to watch XFactor.

Then it happened. Continue reading

Just upgraded to WP 2.3 and…

It all went to bat sh*t. I have some plugins, you know those things that do stuff on the blog, and they’re not compatible…

Well hopefully it is all sorted out now and back up and running.

Lesson of the day? Backup BEFORE you upgrade – no matter what they say, there will always be something to poke you in the eye with a sharp stick.

PS My mouse battery is just about to die and it is 2am in the morning – I hope I have a spare!

Do you have experiences of bad coders?

Having experience of using local and outsourced programmers:

Never EVER believe the following from a programmer:

1. Examples of work* (unless on the site of someone you know and they’ve been openly using it for at least 3-6 months)
2. Testimonials (unless from someone you know – see 1 above)
3. Reviews (unless from someone you know – see 1 above)
4. Sites they’ve developed (see 1 above)
5. Certification of ownership/rights (coders can disappear overnight when they are found out)
6. Statistics (PR can be forged, traffic can easily be diverted, forum posts/comments/testimonials can be forged)

My experiences:

1. PDF files for online reading
Users hate coming across a PDF file while browsing, because it breaks their flow. Even simple things like printing or saving documents are difficult because standard browser commands don’t work. Layouts are often optimized for a sheet of paper, which rarely matches the size of the user’s browser window. Bye-bye smooth scrolling. Hello tiny fonts.
