TagsPage: Another million dollar idea

Posted in Computers & Technology,Optimization,SEO,Web 2.0 by Elliott Back on July 19th, 2006.

More in the spirit of Web 2.0 than the infamous Million Dollar Homepage, Tags Page offers webmasters a chance to promote their website by association with a textual tag. The SEO benefits are obvious, as you receive a high-quality backlink on a particular term. But, the site may also provide value to other users, as it serves as a for profit directory of sorts. Even just browsing its front page is interesting:

For those who aren’t interested in spending money for their site promotion, there are two ways to add your site for free:

  • Add to their free tags list
  • Write a review of the site from a high-profile blog

If you think it’s not for you, think again. The client list include Engadget, CSS Empire, Moo.fx, and Emily Chang. You can get 50% off by using coupon code “tagspage”!

Google Doesn’t Know Where Its Pages Are!

Google NOT FOUND 404 Error

Not Found

The requested URL /firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official was not found on this server.

Google SHOULD NEVER give me a 404 error.

Longest Page on the Internet?!

Posted in Computers & Technology,Memes,Milestones by Elliott Back on January 21st, 2006.

YOU say that you have the longest page on the internet? Well, let me top that. This page is infinitely long. That’s infinitely longer than whatever the “world’s longest / tallest” page is. This is accomplished with a little javascript that writes 72 pixels or one inch per second that the browser window is open. And it goes on forever:

var dvCount = 1;

function writeDiv(){
var e = document.getElementById(‘longestDiv’);
if(!e){} else {
e.innerHTML += ‘<div style="position:absolute; left:’ + (dvCount * 90) + ‘px; width:72px; height:50px; border:1px dashed red;">’ + dvCount++ + ‘</div>’;
}

setTimeout(‘writeDiv()’, 1000);
}

writeDiv();
