To be frank, 2009 for me was the worst hosting nightmare I have ever had. The whole year.
My hosting problems were dragging me down… they had an acute effect on the quality of my life.
Having criticized the new retweet or “tweet” button that Twitter have introduced, lets see if we can make it better.
This mainly covers WordPress – if you are on another platform, find a geek that uses it to try to do the equivalent, but I doubt this is possible on Blogger.
The Twitter retweet code places a link to Twitter on every page you include it, and they didn’t add a nofollow to the link. It is quite possible Google will decide to ignore all these links in the future, especially as it is effectively hidden and not a “vote” for a particular page. The destination of the link doesn’t show similar information to what is in the button.
The sales page for Thesis no longer mentions footer links though the license agreement isn’t available in public.
The sales page for Headway still requires attribution, subject to the license agreement – but the Headway Theme license agreement is available for public viewing.
I was actually quite supportive of John Reese’s Blogrush experiment. It was spammed to death, the quality of the network went downhill rapidly, people clicked the adverts a lot less, and the targeting system was a bit of a longshot.
Blogger (Google) and Amazon it seems have collaborated and introduced a way for people using Blogger to monetize their blogs using Amazon.
I wonder if Google is making some money as a 2-tier affilaite referring so many affiliates to Amazon
I think Google have got their priorities wrong with Real Time search, though I haven’t seen this on other “ego search” terms. I checked with Danny Sullivan and Michael Arrington to start with.
