Web Designs Done Right!

About Me

I've been designing websites for many years now. I remember way back in 1995, when I was working on the Helpdesk for Applied Materials in Santa Clara, CA. I would hack into the database (which was accessed by a basic intranet frontend) using only JavaScript...oh what fun! But then I got serious & learned XHTML coupled with PHP, & so I began to turn out website after website.

And all these years later, I'm still at it! A lot has changed, but the principles I've learned throughout the years have kept growing, & are evident in my designs.

I Train Dogs Too!

It's sounds kind of funny, but yes, I do train dogs :) I have been dog training on & off, for 20+ years now. My favorite type of training is in the sport of Schutzhund. Schutzhund is German for "protection dog", & it's a great dog sport that focuses on developing & evaluating those traits in dogs that make them more useful, which in turn makes for a much better dog/human relationship.

What Is SEO?

Search Engine Optimization

Hey there, fellow internet enthusiast! Today, let's talk about something that we all love to hate: Search Engine Optimization, or SEO for short.

Now, I know what you're thinking. "Oh great, another article about how I need to optimize my website for Google. Yawn." But hear me out, because I promise to make it worth your while. And who knows, you might even learn a thing or two!

First of all, let's address the elephant in the room. SEO can be a real pain in the butt. It's like trying to please a fussy toddler who keeps changing their mind about what they want. You tweak your website one way to please Google, only to find out that they've changed their algorithm again and now you're back to square one. It's exhausting!

And don't even get me started on keyword research. It's like trying to guess what your crush is thinking. You analyze every word they say and every move they make, trying to figure out what they want. But just when you think you've got it all figured out, they throw you a curveball and leave you scratching your head.

But despite all the frustration, there's something oddly satisfying about seeing your website climb up the search engine rankings. It's like a game of Jenga. You stack all your pieces carefully, making sure everything is in place, and then you watch as the tower grows taller and taller. And when it finally reaches the top, you feel like you've accomplished something great.

Of course, there are always those websites that seem to defy all logic. They're like the kid who never studies but still manages to get straight A's. You look at their website and wonder, "How the heck did they do that?" But instead of getting jealous, you should take notes. Who knows, maybe they have a secret weapon that you haven't thought of yet.

So, my fellow internet adventurers, don't let SEO get you down. Yes, it can be frustrating at times, but it's also a necessary evil if you want to succeed online. Just remember to keep your sense of humor and don't take it too seriously. And who knows, maybe one day you'll be the one on top of the Jenga tower, laughing all the way to the bank.

SEO & Google vs Bing

Hey there, internet pals! Today, we're going to talk about the differences between Google and Bing when it comes to search engine optimization (SEO). Yes, that's right - Google and Bing are like two completely different people with their own unique personalities and quirks. So, let's get into it!

First things first, let's talk about Google. Google is like that really popular kid in high school that everyone wants to be friends with. Google is all about relevance and authority. If you want to rank high on Google, you need to have relevant content that is also backed up by reputable sources. Google likes to see a website that is well-organized and easy to navigate. Basically, if you want to impress Google, you need to be the total package.

Now, let's talk about Bing. Bing is like the cool kid that everyone forgets about. Bing is a bit more lenient when it comes to SEO. Unlike Google, Bing doesn't put as much emphasis on relevance and authority. Instead, Bing likes to see a website that has a lot of content. In fact, Bing loves it when a website has a ton of content. So, if you want to rank high on Bing, you need to be a bit of an overachiever and create as much content as humanly possible.

But wait, there's more! Bing also loves keywords. In fact, Bing loves keywords so much that it's almost like they have a keyword fetish. If you want to rank high on Bing, you need to stuff your content with as many keywords as possible. Don't worry about being subtle - just go all out and cram as many keywords as you can into every nook and cranny of your website.

So there you have it, folks. The differences between Google and Bing when it comes to SEO. Whether you're trying to impress Google or win over Bing, just remember to be yourself and create high-quality content. Who knows, maybe you'll become the popular kid in school after all!
