Evergreen SEO Tips

Hosting a website on the Internet is not enough to promote one’s agenda online. The simple reason behind it is that there are millions of websites on the Internet which would be available on the same category. Therefore, it is equally important to promote your website in order to get visitors for your website.

We are all aware of how search engine results redirect users to different websites based on the search keywords entered by the user. Therefore, a website owner must always aim that his/her website features among the top search results. This can be ensured only if the website is optimized for good search engine results – thus bringing the concept of search engine optimization (SEO).

In layman terms, SEO can be referred to as a technique that enhances the probability of a website to be among the first few results for keywords related to the website category. However, implementing SEO to a website is not easy and requires the website owner to be extremely meticulous about the complete procedure. It has been observed over the years that website ranking algorithm has changed tremendously over the years, resulting in many SEO techniques becoming obsolete. Here, we discuss few SEO tips and techniques that have stood the test of time and would play an important role in SEO building irrespective of the ranking algorithm in use:

  1. Content is king: There is no alternative to good content. While SEO is all about keywords and their proper placement, people often confuse it to make their website content a collage of stuffed keywords. On the contrary, one needs to ensure that the website content is of the highest quality and at the same time has optimum inclusion of keywords.
  2. Backlinks always help: The idea of SEO is to make the website links popular. One way to do so is to ensure that the website links are backtracked from several other sources. Thus, blogs, comment and social networking websites can always be easily used to ensure popularity of the link.
  3. Spamming spoils the mix: When the concept of promoting through content is taken too literally, people start spamming before realizing what they are doing. However, one must always ensure that they should promote their website with decency and in places which do not intrude on the target’s private space. Moreover, it would also impact the brand image of a website if it is considered to be spamming.
  4. Creating content out of content: A good content can always help you to generate more content on its lines. The content of your website needs to be propagated through effective mediums, and should be open to comments from users – so as to enable creation of more content around the core one. This not only increases the value of your content, but also enhances your loyal user base. However, one should always be aware about spams which may fill up comment boxes.
  5. Differentiating good from the bad: A thorough knowledge of search engine algorithms is required to understand what would be treated as a good content and what would not be. Therefore, one must always strive to keep the good content while reducing content that do not help them with search engine results.

How to debug your web application bugs?

How to debug your web application bugs?

A web application, once released on production for its intended users, is very likely to come across several bugs. Although, the development of an application is done with an aim to create a bug-free code, it is an inevitable part of the software development lifecycle. Therefore, it is very important to ensure proper handling of bugs.

The development team needs to devise a particular approach to debug the application. Firstly, it is always better to prevent a defect rather than fix it later. A proper defect prevention plan would need every stage of development to be thoroughly reviewed and validated. In fact, a lot of defects can be prevented in the requirement capturing stage itself. However, it is impossible to cover all ends at the initial development phases. In fact, some bugs or defects are not actually development issues in nature, but some bad data or connection issues can also cause unexpected behaviour at the application end.

However, since the objective is to minimise as many defects as possible, we need to check for defects at every stage of the development. In fact, a defect prevention tracker needs to be maintained in order to record every defect detected and fixed. In that regard, it is also important to ensure proper techniques are in place to detect all bugs. While users or testers may report bugs, some checks at the code level can also help in detecting bugs.

In fact, defect detection is the first stage of debugging an application. However, in order to perform the analysis required to find the fault, there must be enough logging present for all the components in the application. There are several issues which cannot be recreated at will, as it may manipulate user data or cause other issues. Moreover, there could be one-time issues, which could have happened under abnormal circumstances – and in order to capture required information of that particular time, logging needs to be enabled throughout the application.

Once the code is analysed and the faulty component is identified, a fix needs to be prepared. However, fixing bugs on an existing application code is tougher than writing the code in the first place, as the fix also needs to ensure that it does not impact the normal flow of other components. In other words, a thorough regression testing is required for implementing a fix in the existing code. It is most undesirable that new code defects are introduced while fixing one.

However, the whole process of bug fixing needs to be prioritized properly. The severity of the issue decides the priority with which it needs to be rectified. The frequency of the issue is one parameter that determines the severity of the issue.

Some web applications which deal with critical information such as financial and demographic data of the users need to be very efficient with bug fixing techniques. The amount of time a defect is present in the application, it translates into bad user experience, and also could lead into large amount of business loss. Thus, debugging the application should be treated with high importance by the application development team.

Men of today’s era have higher standards of living, more money in the pocket than before, more exposed to globalization and modernization. One thing which is very closely embedded in all these is computer. Now people have more access to the internet. Owing to all this modern health care facilities are now available online.

Now people can locate hospitals and what are the services available there, just by simply sitting at home and surfing the net.

21st Century Health Care: Banes of Internet

With all the good things follow some bad thing, just like darkness following light. People searching for medicines online for particular illness are flooded with choices and they do not know which one to take. Moreover a doctor can diagnose a disease better when he is physically near the patient. Online reception medical reports and diagnosing a disease based on it reduces the efficiency of the doctor. Again consulting a doctor from very far away through internet may result into confusion. For example he may prescribe some medicines which are available in the region of his work but unavailable at the patients’ end and he might not know the substitutes which are available at the patients’ end.

Forecast

Though there are many difficulties and drawbacks in using the medical services online, but in near future it will prove to be very cheap and effective medium of communication between the patient and the doctor. It will be possible for the near and dear ones of a patient to monitor him at the hospital by simply sitting at home. With advent of newer and better technology a patient can easily communicate with the doctor via video conferencing which though available today but not widespread among the common masses. To conclude with one thing can be said that is the internet is growing by leaps and bounds, it is affecting all the aspects of our lives and so the health care system can’t be left out.

THE CELLPHONE REVOLUTION

May 5th, 2009 | Posted under Tips For Life | No Comments »

THE CELLPHONE REVOLUTION.
We have all seen them. We have used them at some point. We might even be the proud owners of several units. Cell phones. A blessing from god above which has revolutionized human life as we know it. I am sure that Alexander graham bell, even in his wildest dreams, never envisioned what his invention, the telephone, would eventually morph into. Marconi, even as he did his experiments in wireless communication, did not fully realize the great possibilities afforded by his experiments. The modern cell phone is indeed a technological masterpiece, if you really think about it. If anyone had walked over to Mr. graham bell and told him that in the future, it would be possible to hold a conversation with a person halfway across the world, he would have labeled them a lunatic and proceeded to have you taken to the nearest asylum, or he would have at least laughed in your face and called you a fool. However, we know that what may have seemed an incredible feat in the past is now reality, in the form of cell phones. It is amazing how fast the devices are getting assimilated into everyday life. With increasing technological advances, the devices are getting cheaper and cheaper and all the while their processing power, their memory capacities and other features are increasing. It is no big deal today to watch television broadcasts on the devices, listen to music, send e-mails read documents and make appointment, all using your cell phones. It gets better than that. Cell phones, also referred to as mobile phones, are changing the way people carry out their day to day activities. Not only do they enhance communication, but they are also changing other facets of life not necessarily linked with communication. Take banking, for instance. Ever since the creation of these noble institutions, most transactions took place within the banking halls. Not so today. With the advent of electronic funds transfer (eft) and mobile banking, one can make all manners of financial transactions from thousands of miles away, thus saving time and avoiding the hassles of queues and bouncing cheques. Take the example set by one Kenyan company, namely safaricom. Safaricom, a mobile network service provider has introduced an innovative mobile banking service to its customers under the name of m-pesa.the service allows customers to deposit money into their phones and to withdraw it when needed. It also allows for funds transfers between customers. As is expected, the service has caused quite a stir in the third world country`s banking industry, and most banks have been forced to either develop similar services or partner with safaricom m-pesa service.
Indeed, cell phones are here to stay. What remains to be seen is how people will react to the changes that they bring about.
