Google Sitemaps is working
As I’ve posted previously, I started ‘testing’ Google Sitemaps last week. So what have I done? I added my feeds first. They were there already so that didn’t take any effort. Next I added a plugin to my WordPress installation that would generate a sitemap automatically and added that one also. Now the big question. […]
Corporate Egosurfing, or how to get market info for free.
Keeping track on what is being said in the media is somewhat of a luxury for big companies. They can afford to allocate people and time in special departments (PR, Communications, …) to track the news, journals, internet, measure campaign effectiveness, etc. Smaller family run companies don’t have that kind of resources. Their time is […]
Tabbed browsing in IE is here
Well, you’ll have to download and install the MSN Search Toolbar first. But this is the official Microsoft add-on to IE that does make the browsing experience tabbed right now. No longer do you have to wait for IE7. Plus you get the added bonus of desktopsearch, auto form fill and a popupblocker. And it’s […]
What font will we choose next for our site?
Webdesigners have been limited in their choice of fonts for quite some time now. Who doesn’t use Arial, Verdana, Courier, Helvetica, etc. The list isn’t very long as opposed to print designers.

What do search engines see in my page?
Google Sitemaps weblog plugins
In the previous post I said that Google Sitemaps will accept your feeds just as well. And it does, no worries. But as I looked further into the dynamic generation of sitemaps I found there were WordPress plugins already available. (Just 3 days after the service went public. How’s that for a user community …) […]
Google Sitemaps (Beta)
To let webmasters help Google index their site better there is Google Sitemaps. Sounds like a good idea. So how does it work? First you need to have a Google account (having a GMail account is probably enough). Second you need to create a Sitemap file in the root of your site. This is an […]
IE 7 around the corner…
Looking back at my blog I see that I post a lot about Firefox. But there is another browser around that is even more popular. Yes, Internet Explorer! Unfortunately IE6 has been around since 2001(?) and hasn’t been updated since. Apart from the occasional Service Pack or Security Update, IE6 has basically remained the same […]
Catching up with my feeds tonight this one caught my eye. Codename: ‘Strippenkaart’. It makes me smile. 🙂 Why? For non-Dutch this would probably mean nothing. Except for ‘some’ who went to the XTech conference last week. And for those who know there’s a developer preview release of Firefox 1.1 available. So why am I […]
