Sortable table v1.5

2 January 2007 by Joost de Valk » - 10 Comments

I’ve just updated my sortable table script to version 1.5, in which it is fixed to work in Safari for Mac OS X 10.4 as well, (I didn’t even know that it wasn’t working in there since it always worked in the nightly). I’m now taking new feature requests for this script, so hit me »


FeedBurner history comparison

1 January 2007 by Joost de Valk » - 2 Comments

When I was working on my FeedBurner history graph tool, I thought it would be cool to be able to display the growth of a blog relative to some other blog as well, so i came up with the idea of “just” plotting a few other lines next to each other, showing how they performed »

I got some nice stuff in the mail today, a gift from FeedBurner‘s Jessica Graeser, because they liked my FeedBurner graph so much. Check it out:

FeedBurner down?

18 December 2006 by Joost de Valk » - 1 Comment

As I logged in to my Mint stats this morning, I saw that FeedBurner had registered 0 feedreaders for both yoast.com and www.css3.info. Now I know for a fact that that isn’t true, and indeed, one the support forums it seems that more people have this problem. Update: it seems this problem was solved within »

What I’ve learned in the SEM scholarship contest

yoast seo

Man I was cocky when I entered the scholarship contest. I though I’d beat everybody easily. The amounts of traffic that other articles were getting weren’t very impressive, I thought, and I was sure to be able to get much more traffic. After all, I knew from experience what a few blog posts and news »

Favicons and your online brand

15 November 2006 by Joost de Valk » - 13 Comments

One of the nicer things to have changed with the release of IE7, which is now in automatic updates, is the way it handles favicons. In the IE6 past it would show them in the location bar only when you had the site bookmarked. Now it always shows them, and in the tab bar as »

Update to sortable table script

5 November 2006 by Joost de Valk »

Ok, i’ve fixed one hell of a bug in the table sorting script which must have been in there for at least 2 months, screwing up sorting incredibly, sorry for that. I added in a new feature as well, you can now have dates formatted as 01-Jan-1970, and it will sort these right as well. »


W3C Validator API

2 November 2006 by Joost de Valk » - 21 Comments

The W3C announced the release of an API for the HTML validator or rather, that’s what they call it. In fact, it’s nothing more than an output filter on their normal validator output, which gives SOAP 1.2 conforming output.

PHP5 and NUSOAP

31 October 2006 by Joost de Valk » - 7 Comments

So last weekend I installed PHP5 on my server, to finally be able to do some new stuff, and this, it seemed, created some trouble with my SEO scripts that used NUSOAP. What is the problem? Well it’s easy: PHP5 has a soapclient built in, and this causes trouble :).

Why PageRank says nothing about rankings

wordpress plugins

Sometimes you’ll get clients who say “my PageRank is x, yet I don’t get any visitors from Google”?. Understandable, I think. If you were graded 6 out of 10, by the biggest search engine out there, it’s only fair to expect some traffic, or isn’t it?
