Elliott C. Back: Internet & Technology

“Elliott” moving up in SERPS

Posted in Blogging,Family,Friends,My Blog,SEO by Elliott Back on January 28th, 2006.

For the first time ever, I rank fourth on Google for the search term “elliott,” directly above Missy Elliott, my competitor for so many long years:

Elliott MOVING UP!!

This is totally a huge ego search, but I must confess that I optimized the front page a little more heavily for that keyword than I did before, increasingly the density dramatically.

The New ElliottBack.com

Posted in AJAX,My Blog,Web 2.0 by Elliott Back on December 26th, 2005.

I’m doing some cool things for the new ElliottBack.com. One of them involves integrating a community tagging solution, to which I’ve added or modified the following features:

+ Automatic tagging
+ Related RSS search feeds now in regular HTML as well as AJAX
+ RSS search feed item descriptions

I need to add one more feature, that is, to let everyday users add tags at will, too. Once that’s done, this tagging solution will power intra-post linkage as well as draw in valuable content from offsite.

The ElliottBack.com Dev. Plan

Posted in Code,How to Blog by Elliott Back on June 22nd, 2005.

It’s been a long time since the site engine has changed, but I have great plans for a new system. I am going to do it in three parts:

  • Develop a new wordpress 1.5.x.x package on a test server somewhere. Move the old “movies” and other “elliott” tabs to the domain root, add more content there.
  • Develop or find a deployment tool that can push out my package to the various subdomains and keep everyone in sync.
  • Do a gradual manual deployment, run the upgrade scripts, and then re-deploy with the automatic tool

I think this will be a great strategy–then I can do serious work on the website without having to worry about all my myriad installations, because everything will basically be the same.
