trafficsecrets 2.0

July 15, 2008

If any of you are into Search Engine Optimization (SEO), then you have to do yourself a favor and get John Reese’s new Traffic Secrets 2.0 package. I bought the first one when it came out awhile ago and I have to tell you, it was very enlightening. He knows his stuff.

He gives real world examples of how to find a niche, produce a product, and sell it to millions. If you know nothing of John, check out his blog income.com/blog. This man is a genius and knows the web like nobody’s business.

The new Traffic Secrets package is going to be released TODAY at noon.
Check out his videos, read the blog, get the new Traffic Secrets, implement his techniques, make money. Very simple.

The School of Google

March 20, 2008

Yep, you read right. How would you like to be taught by the monsters masters themselves? Google is now offering Google Code University for geeks in the making. They break down into 4 unique categories: AJAX Programming, Distributed Systems, Web Security, and Languages.

The best part, like all Google products, it’s FREE! Hooray for free stuff!

AJAX Loading image

March 12, 2008

When I’m on the web and waiting for a partial page update (thank you AJAX!) and see a little loading image I think “aww, isn’t that nice”. It’s just good practice to let your users know that they have to wait for a few seconds until their content loads.

The last thing you want is a user waiting for something to load and not know that they are waiting. This will get them off of your page faster than Spitzer can say “They found what?!”. 😉

Here is a site that generates loading images on the fly. You can customize it by choosing different styles and colors. Pretty damn sweet.

Find a job

March 10, 2008

As a developer, you want to make sure you are getting paid what you deserve. It’s a pain to try and explain to a customer that a website/project takes time and patience. Did you ever get the “Oh, I want a website, I want to be on the top of Google, I want this by the end of the week, and I also want it done for a good price”. Yeah, right.

WTF?!, people don’t understand that taking on projects and websites take time. And as they say (who’s they, I don’t know), time is money. A we developers’ job is NEVER done. If you are tired of dealing with the id10t’s in upper management and want to look for a (new) job, check out dice.com. It’s a site where developers can search for work specifically for them. Forget dealing with monster, this site gears towards your inner geek (and your wallet).

Good luck. And the next time you get one of these customers that want their projects in an unreasonable time, tell them shove it and go on dice.com; unless of course you need the cash, then take the job, stock up on redbull, swallow your pride, and get to work.
