Answer by Jack H
I think the easiest way to put photos and contact information online is to use a blog. My favourite is – very simple and very stylish (the pages look nicer than most blog sites). The drawback is it works best with a one-page website, but that’s okay if all you want is to have some information about you and some photos!

Otherwise, if you have a mac, some of them have a program (part of iLife suite) called iWeb, which is great for making your own webpage.

Link Trade Tracker Announces New Tool for Search Engine Optimization

Link Trade Tracker Announces New Tool for Search Engine Optimization

Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 21, 2010

Link building is a rewarding method for increasing a website’s search engine visibility, and developing a carefully monitored link building campaign should be included in your site’s marketing strategy. has announced a new tool for monitoring links, key factors and link building. Webmasters, website owners and search engine pros can use the service for free.

It is important to note that monitoring the links you acquire is necessary. The “I link to you and you link to me” trade may still benefit sites that are truly related, though it does not hold the SEO (search engine optimization) “juice” it once did. Search engines algorithms continuously improve and are focusing more on one way links from quality sites while penalizing for links appearing to be bought or artificially created. The engines also penalize for dead or excessive links, or if they detect a large number of new links.

The SEO community has responded with link building tools and monitoring services. Paid link building services have proven to be effective however monitoring them is a must. Hiring a service may initially increase site rank, only to suffer if the search engines detect large number of new links or suspect your using a link building service. It is imperative for a website to track links in/out of their site to watch for potentially negative actions by a service. Enter the tool that automates the monitoring process.

Social media can play a part in your link campaign. Links from LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube will not boost you to the top but they can contribute to the campaign.

Black hat link building is evolving as well. Some webmasters are willing to risk sites being penalized for the reward of getting temporary higher ranking. A common trick is to comment spam blogs and forums. Commenting on sites using seemingly related keyword spam such as, “Great article! I have been looking for the answer to [keyword spam]” and including a link. Engines frown upon this type of link building and will penalize a site.

One of the least considered issues lies with unmonitored links returning 404 errors. These are seen as dead links by the search engines. Your sites trustworthiness is affected if a link changes or moves, or if the target domain expires or has hosting issues. The importance of knowing that your inbound and outbound links are valid cannot be overlooked. Link Trade Tracker automatically verifies and notifies you of link status changes.

The secrets to effective link building are:

Find quality links from related sites and then track and verify your links constantly!

About The Author : Link Trade Tracker is a web based link exchange tracking service allowing webmasters keep track of their link exchanges and automatically monitor key factors such as link existence, page rank, anchor and description text. Link Trade Tracker also offers a means for webmasters to find similar quality sites to build incoming links. Visit to create a free account.

SEO Ranking Factors: What’s Your Ranking Potential?

SEO Ranking Factors: What’s Your Ranking Potential?

SEO is a tricky game where the rules are not clearly set. Search engines won’t tell us all the truth about how their algos operate and for a good reason. If everyone knew what exactly makes you rank on top, the search engines would have a hard time determining what websites are really relevant to the user’s query and which ones are just optimized to get passed off as such. On the other hand quite a number of the ranking puzzle pieces have been discovered through testing and SEO experiments. Let’s see what SEO factors are known to have influence over your site’s ranking and how you can measure its ranking potential.

All ranking factors can be divided into 2 broad groups: On-page (something on your website) and Off-page (things on other websites).

<b>Onpage Ranking Factors</b>


Title is the single most important element on a webpage. SEO is a niche where experts hardly ever agree on anything, but the power of page titles is one such rare exception. Titles not only have significant impact on the ranking potential of a webpage but also to a large extent determine how many people will click on your link in the search results. Having your targeted keywords in the title is crucial, but you also need to make sure that the title is appealing to users if you want to achieve a higher click-trough rate.


Search engines (especially Google) tend to give more weight to pages of old trusted domains that have earned good reputation and authority. Young websites generally find it harder to rank on top for popular keywords but with some extra SEO effort a high listing can be achieved even with newly registered domains.


I’m sure you’ve heard it a lot of times: ‘content is king’, ‘build quality content and you’ll rank high’. In reality it’s very doubtful that search engines can really evaluate the quality of content as such without using any external factors like link popularity. Poorly written articles or sites with no content at all ranked in the top 10 for competitive keywords pretty much prove the point. However strange it may seem, content is king after all because of its link building potential. If you create quality content people will link to it helping you build your link authority and that brings us to off-page ranking factors.

<b>Off-Page Factors</b>

The term off-page as such is used for the most part to describe other sites linking to a website. It may seem quite obvious at first sight: more and better quality links is all you need (better quality often misinterpreted as higher PageRank). However, as you start digging deeper into what ‘better quality’ actually means you’ll find that there’s a lot more to a link than just the PR of the webpage it comes from.


The words surrounding the link play quite an important role in determining the relevancy of the page linking to you. You can have your targeted keywords in the anchor text but if the topic of the page is anything but relevant the link value you get will be somewhat smaller.

Position on the Page

Search engine spiders follow links on the first-come, first-served basis and links that appear higher up on the webpage tend to be more effective in shaping a website’s rankings than the ones sitting below.

TLD of the Linking Page

The day of getting a link from an .edu or .gov website is a great day for any website promoter. Links from these and other domains including .org and .mil are believed to have larger impact on a site’s rankings. Although it’s arguable whether search engines have any sort of preferences for these types of TLDs or whether it’s just that these are usually top-authority websites with a strong in-link profile, still links from these domains tend to be a more effective ranking catalyst.

These are some of the important but often overlooked SEO factors you need to take into account when shaping your optimization strategy and working out your way to the top of search results. Sure, it’s quite an extra mile to go if you try to gather and analyze all that data by hand. Luckily you can use SEO tools that will save you time on digging for the information and putting it together for analysis. And at the end of the day the results of your work will pay off big time.

Universal Search: Not All Blends are Created Equal

How to rank well in Google

Thoughts on Google Chrome

"… That means Google is slowly but surely working to erode Microsoft’s monopoly. If browsers provide a high-quality, universally popular, OS-independent platform for applications, OS vendors no longer have any particular advantage in the desktop applications market. …"

On the assumption that most users use this browser.

More browsers, more market split. Uneven as well. The question nobody has answered is how is this new Chrome browser going to get on computers? Downloaded by users? Mandated by companies? or shipped on new operating systems?

some time later…

"… As we saw with the example of search engines, a new competitor may split an existing market …"

This is a different beast.

It’s consumer binary software. You have to download it, install it, tune it, learn it. The browser is now what the OS was to applications. It’s just another hurdle for constrained users to jump. With search engines you just point your browser with a different url.

some time later…

"… Good lord did you even think about what you just wrote? Its a browser, not a torture device! …"

Keep your emotions in check, ad hominem.

and a bit later…

"… Good lord did you even think about what you just wrote? Its a browser, not a torture device! …"

Can you explain the how this language adds to the discussion without resorting to ridicule?

"… I could care less about your thread …"

Chrome has the potential to be just as closed as MS (bad), Apple because the real power is in who controls the commits. Do you have any worthwhile to add about how Chrome could become another closed system?

The next day

I had some time yesterday to read through the entire document. This particular section to me is probably the most significant. Google has done some great work. They have released all this work with an opensource license, componentise it, document it. One thing they didn’t decouple is the use of their pageranked testing.

Testing for the browser will be against their own data set. Google controls the data collection. And while they are fanatical about not altering the algorythm (cf: Joel Spolskys explanation of the Google term "Jew" and how google has taken great pains by taking out an advert explaining why they do not make exceptions and the ranking is a reflection of how people use the data).

They do however control how the browser will behave against their dataset. The browser is automatically tuned to perform best on the pages google ranks. Think about the implications of that.
