Analytics conversions, please explain what’s wrong

I use Analytics on some of my sites to check conversions, but the conversion summary of Analytics drives me nuts sometimes. On the 29th, it shows me 8 conversions. On the 30th, it shows me 1 conversion. Then when I change the view to 29-30 it shows me… 8 conversions! Now the last time I…

DMOZ and Wikipedia: how it should work

Contrary to the popular saying “DMOZ is dead”, I think it’s not. That combined with the recent Wikipedia nofollow debate made me think. Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia. DMOZ, or the Open Directory Project is “the largest, most comprehensive human-edited directory of the Web”. An encyclopedia should contain references to other articles in that encyclopedia,…

PageRank update, some PR6′s added

I got notified by a post on SEO Roundtable that another (or still the same) PR update was going on. So far it seems that css3 . info has become PR6, as well as it’s blog, which rocks of course! Seems like all pages younger than 1.5 years or so are having their update now…

Live search asking stupid questions

Ok, bashing on Live is easy perhaps, but this example is so typical of why I hate the engine… If you’ve been reading my blog somewhat longer you know that one of my domains which I use a lot in examples is www.css3.info. Just a decent domain, with a pretty good amount of backlinks considering…

Sortable table script updated to v1.5.5

I got an email from Mozilla’s director of product management Sherman Dickman today, that my sortable table script wasn’t sorting numbers above 1 million which have comma’s in them correctly (they do have a lot of Firefox downloads ;) ). The problem was caused by the fact that replace only replaced items once, where they…

WebmasterRadio and iTunes

I absolutely love WebmasterRadio, there’s one thing about them that I hate though… I can never seem to find the iTunes links on there… So here’s the list of my favourite shows, with iTunes subscribe links, for future reference: Domain Masters Good Karma Net Income Daily SearchCast Rush Hour SEO Rockstars That’s a Wrap The…

As usual, Technorati walks ahead of the pack

They “invented” blogsearch, and did a LOT for the webdevelopment and blogging community. Now Technorati, it turns out, is working on the microformats search I asked for only two articles ago (it was there before that, I just didn’t know about it)… Check it out in Technorati’s Kitchen.

Upgraded to WordPress 2.1

I decided to upgrade to WordPress 2.1, and I have to say: it all went very, very smoothly. The only trouble I had was with Subscribe to Comments. Although version 2.1 of this very cool plugin had been released, and it was said to work with WP 2.1, it didn’t. You got an error like…

Googling for microformats

Imagine, you can type in a query like “joost de valk class:vcard” and Google comes up with my contact page, because that has a vcard class in it’s markup, the main class of the hCard microformat. This was suggested today on the uf-discuss mailing list, a mailing list I’ve been lurking on for quite a…
