Search Engine Placement Made Easy

I’ve done close to the impossible.

On Friday May 11th, I purchases a domain. I set up a site on the domain that evening. I also posted a couple of posts to the new formed blog.

Today (May 14th) I noticed that it was number one on Google search for the two words I wanted it listed for.

No it’s not an obscure word or phrase but rather common. In the IT world anyway. Actually it is the number one result out of 1.4 million results.

The phrase?

I can’t tell you yet, but I will soon. I want to build up the domain with more content before I start targeting traffic to it.

I also took a screen shot that I will post later to prove that in 3 days I went from non-existent to the first search result.

Who said search engine optimization is hard? I’m not guaranteeing that I will stay there for long but I was surprised to see myself there already…

Remember to keep watch for how I done it coming soon…

100 Useful Ubuntu Links

I’ve been using Ubuntu for over a year now, and frankly I think it has Vista beat. As soon as my college classes are done this semester I will be formatting my new laptop (which came with Vista Home Premium) and installing Ubuntu.

Now that Dell is on board to offer Ubuntu on new Dell laptops and PCs, I don’t see this market getting any smaller.

RIAA Backs Down After Receiving Letter from Defendant’s Lawyer

I’m glad to see someone finally beat these guys.

I really wonder why artists need record labels anymore? With all the online music stores, you think they would get smart and skip the middle man…

Students use Ubuntu also

Yesterday, I volunteered some time to help judge a TSA science fair competition. The category I was judging was website design/creation.

I have to say I was amazed at some of the skill sets these kids have developed at such a young age.

One thing that I really enjoyed is one group of high schoolers had chosen to host their own website and when I asked what platform they were hosting on, he replied, “Ubuntu 6.10″.

Thadda boy!

Spam for my Domain

I have been evaluating Zimbra email services, which I find to rock so far (more to come) and have been amazed at the amount of spam my main business domain ( receives.

Here is the snapshot since I started the trial:

That’s right, it peaked at 20 thousand messages per day before I disabled the catch-all account for the domain. (So anything(at) would get delivered). Having a catch all address set is usually nothing more than a spam trap, as in this case, but I wanted to train the spam filters in a very short time to test the worthiness of the product.

Needless to say they got their fill of spam!
