18 May Social Whale App

I just watched this video presentation about Social Whale for your mobile phone. This app was started in 2009 by a few people in Greece, and has been in alpha testing stages to this day it seems. Twitter has created so many unique ways of communicating that the people at Social Whale decided to put something together. Watch this video to see what I mean. Our idea is simple at its base. We create a clone of twitter’s API and then...

15 May Google Follows Twitter Links?

Well it is not secret that Google doesn't always pay attention to the nofollow code. Don't believe me? That's fine I don't really care. There's nothing wrong with a nofollow link in the first place, at least that's what I think. You have to have them, they're natural and they make your link profile look good, so what's going on with Twitter here? Well I've done my own testing, so should you, but some folks at Webmaster World got a...

30 Apr Love.com At A Glance

I wasn't aware of Love.com until I read Aaron Wall's post "Does Google Love.com Spam?" which lead me to peering into their backlink profile and more. Aaron is the man when it comes to pointing out the crazy things companies will do and AOL is redefining content scraping. Now most sites wouldn't have lasted this long but when you're AOL you have a little bit more sway that others. I don't want to get into the ethics of it...
