FeedBurner API fun

FeedBurner API fun

I’ve had some fun with the FeedBurner API in the past days, creating a graphic simulation from a blog’s feed-readers history over the past year. It’s rather elegant, I think, as it creates graphics which you can easily insert into your pages or posts, and will automatically update each time they’re loaded. An example: Want…

Spammers using social media

Spammers don’t just linkspam Wikipedia, they use various methods to gather the links they need to get their sites on top of the organic search results. One of the new methods in the last months has been spamming the social bookmarking networks like Digg and del.icio.us.

Wikipedia Link Nazi’s

Wikipedia Link Nazi’s

Jaimie of SEO Egghead has a wonderful post on Wikipedia editor being link nazi’s, with a wonderful picture to illustrate just what he means with the term “nazi” as well.

Favicons and your online brand

Favicons and your online brand

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…

W3C Validator API

W3C Validator API

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. It requires a HTTP request though, which makes it a rather funny “API” to deal with.

PHP5 and NUSOAP
