Problem is, Google IS the largest scraper on the planet

How do I report that? Hmmm…

Google Scraper Report Form

+Matt Cutts Tweeted this link our today to a Scraper Report form. I like it, though I wonder if it's really necessary to demonstrate the search result where the scraper might be ranking. Shouldn't we just burn scrapers in a a blue flame bon-fire anyway?

Writing is part of web design and development process

Here's some great advice from folk at Google Ventures on how to 'write' good web design – thought some of you guys would love it. 

Reshared post from +Jerry Low

Last month I had a site audit at WebHostingSecretRevealed.net and did more than 30 minor UX tweak on my homepage – a little small text here below the button and some small changes on the clickable text. So far I am seeing good results – visitors are staying a little longer, read more pages, and clicking more to the pages that I want them to be. 

When designing a website (or a marketing campaign), we often overlooked minor details such as button labels and link title text. However, these small things matter, a lot. Don't be lazy. Do not assume. The devils are in the details. 

Here's a good read (by John Zeratsky from Google Ventures) for those who want to create great interface.

John Zeratsky gives pointers on the importance of crafting those little bits of text in the UI design of software products.

[Infographic] Wonder what are the options you have in web hosting?

Searching for a web host can be a tedious job, especially if you are doing it for the first time and don’t know what to look for. While my hosting reviews and articles might help in separating the good hosts from the bad ones, you are the only one who can determine which web host is the right one for yourself.

Questions to ask include (but not limited to): Do you need a very secured hosting environment? How much server control do you need? Do you have excessive budget for a premium hosting? How much web traffic are you expecting? Do you run application that requires intensive processing power? Can your website tolerates with certain level of downtime?

Answering these questions lead us to the next key question: What are your choices? The following infographic has the answer.

Snake Oil SEO

Every time when I got SEO expert’s advice that “to rank high on Google, you need to have all the keywords added into your keyword meta”.

(Don’t be surprised! There are still plenty of people buying into this shit nowadays – especially local brick-n-mortal businessmen here.)
