Will My Next Project Be Better than SEO ?

Aug 26th, 2010 | Filed under Computers and Internet, Work

As some people may have noticed,  recently we have not been doing much work on the website, normally we add about a shirt, or story a day to it, but for the last two weeks I, the website designer, have been busy working on another website for a while.

“Why” you might ask ?

Well, I had a bit of a scary incident here about two months ago. The website, due to my poor website design, had over 1000 images in one folder. This is a problem, because most of the file systems on the Internet, just cant deal with that many images, so my online folder was unreadable, and Google was no longer able to index my images. Google Images are normally a huge amount of our traffic.  We went from about 14,000 unique visitors for the month, down to about 7000. Yikes! We all thought it was the coming of a business apocalypse. We just cant survive on 7000 people.

Now I love Google, but this event made me realize just how much power Google has over me, and my co workers lives. They could put us out of business in the blink of an eye. It’s not Googles fault they are so big, I mean if I really wanted to not support them I could use Bing, but Google’s search engine is just so good, why would I bother, besides what did Bing ever do for me, I think they send us a couple hundred people a month is all, nothing close to what Google sends us. Generally Bing I think is denying most of the general public from seeing fantastic websites like ours. No idea why they do it, not sure if they are just really snobby, or cant cope with the size of the Internet.

So recently I decided that our business living or dying by the grace of the search engines was not such a good idea, and having our own network of websites, might be a good safety net.

So started working on a Guild Wars 2 Forum and website called GuildWars2Fans.com You see, although I don’t talk about Video Games very much on this website, secretly I am a closet video game addict, and Guild Wars 2 will be my next fix.

Don’t worry faithful followers, it does not mean my strange opinions, and weird stories will stop coming, its just they have been put on hold for the moment while I try and get a forum going that hopefully will soon be talking to one another and having fun. At that point I will be able to spend all my time putting up the funny shirts or blogging again.

Oh here is the Guild Wars 2 teaser trailer if you want to have a look.

A Tiger is a massive ferocious carnivore of unbelievable aggression and power. They can run up to 56 kph and weigh up to 258 Kg (569 Pounds). Tigers have been known to jump up to five meters off the ground to swipe at people on elephants, people hanging from tree limbs, or sometimes over zoo walls to a taunting observer.

The tiger was voted the world’s favorite animal In a poll conducted by Animal Planet, narrowly beating the dog. More than 50,000 viewers from 73 countries voted in the poll. Tigers received 21% of the vote, dogs 20%, dolphins 13%, horses 10%, lions 9%, snakes 8%, followed by elephants, chimpanzees, orangutans and whales.

There are an estimated 12,000 tigers kept as private pets in the USA.

Wataah! - Click Image $17.99 USD

At first, for an unmeasurable amount of time, there was nothing. Then came a sound, and everything was created.

4.5 billion years later we had Bruce Lee.

Though Bruce never decided to destroy the universe and send us all back to the nothing, he did have the power to do so.

During the filming of Way of the Dragon Chuck Norris challenged Bruce to a sparring contest. Bruce accepted, moved into a fighting stance, and breathed slowly inward, and then with his mouth, emitted the loudest sound ever heard.

Wattah”!

All Earth’s creatures became deaf.

Bruce later released us from our deafness by speaking, while breathing inwards, the word Hattaw.

Chuck decided to forfeit the match, Bruce had simply raised the stakes too high, and Chuck knew the universe could not survive a match of their combined magnitude.

Recently I returned from a short trip to Lao, it was good, we had a fantastic hotel room with hot water, air con, satellite TV and everything for only $14 per night,  the rooms were cleaned every day, and the sheets and towels all changed etc.

We ate mostly french food but went to the local all you can eat Barbecue for $4 a person most evenings. The food was good.

The are pictures from a Buddhist park outside of Vientiane Lao.

Millions of tourists every year, cross the bridge within bike riding distance of these two places,  and don’t even know they exist.

I do plan to travel back to Nong kai in a few months though to take photographs of it.

Bad Smokemon Caught In My Stash! Click Image

Where did that little guy go? Every time he escapes from his ball, I cant find him for several hours then he comes back all glassy eyed, and starts talking about the universe and other such nonsense.

His actions make me sick, I can’t wait to stuff him back into his little ball where he belongs.

“Here Smokie, here Smokie Smokemon.”

Man if that dude is in my stash again…

There he is, he is so cute, but he got in my stash again, I have to punish him, back in the ball for a week then next time that really big red dragon monster shows up, I am tossing in his little ball.

That will teach him.
