Lee lo que ningun experto te dirá al desarrollar un portal web

El SEO o Search engine optimization puede ser dificil y confuso Por lo general SEO se refiere a la Optimizacion para Motores de Busqueda de sitios web. Ello tiene, la estructura de la web, el análisis de los temario, optimizacion de palabras claves. Por esto les damos algunos pocos tips para aumentar el SEO de vuestros paginas y a través de eso la posicion en Google y los demás buscadores que en la actualidad ocupas.

El SEO no tiene por qué ser necesariamente el webmaster o el responsable de la pagina web, sino que éste último puede contratar sus servicios. Por otra parte cada vez mayor cantidad de sociedades que se han especializado en el posicionamiento en buscadores, y ofrecen ayuda a otros sitios web

La optimización de sitios web orientada al SEO es ahora una obsesión para todos los que deseen estar presente en internet, sea una pyme o sea una empresa que quiera vender sus bienes en la web

La optimización SEO se compone de distintos aspectos que se entrelazan entre sí, con técnicas basados en buenas prácticas permitiendo que el sitio web sea amigable a los principales motores de búsqueda. Conocer como funcionan los motores de búsquedas es relevante.

Una de las mayores confusiones, que yo he provocado en parte hasta hace poco, es que los responsables de SEO dicen: ‘el SEM es el pago por posicionarse, el SEO es el posicionamiento orgánico’. Es una definición cotidiana de los enlaces patrocinados, el SEM se aplica a todo por lo que se paga a los buscadores con el fin de aparecer destacado (arriba, muy arriba). Los lectores que ya estén calentitos con el comentario, que esperen un minuto a la explicación.

Se recomienda que al menos cada página contenga de 200 a 400 palabras en contenido. Las maquinas no leen” código, así que un sitio basado en imágenes o aplicaciones programadas no ayudará mucho a dar un 100% de visibilidad.

Steve Wozniak entertaining the crowd waiting in line for iPad

Steve Wozniak is a complete opposite to Steve Jobs with whom he established Apple company. Woz, brain behind the Apple computer, is a fun loving and person with down-to-the-earth attitude but, Jobs is serious and ruthless entrepreneur.

iPad clones available in China

The high demand of the iPad tablet in the United States forced Apple to delay its international launch. Reuters reported that Chinese counterfeiters have already launched their own version of iPad at a much lower price. The device is told to be power by Intel Atom N450 – the processor designed for Netbook and runs Windows operating system. Vista is pre-installed which can also be upgraded to Windows7. The Atom processor clocked at 1.66GHz with memory to 2GB and the hard drive is 250MB does even look superior in configuration when compared the original iPad’s Apple A4 processor, clocked at 1GHz. Good things: it has 3 USB ports, costs 2,800 yuan ($410), less than the $499-699 price-tag of the original. Reuters quoted one crew-cut agent Lin saying: "This is just the first rough version. Eventually, the factories will be able to make a much better copy."

Lost iPhone prototype issue getting complicated

The issue of lost iPhone and Apple's formal letter to get it back was stretched beyond the lost-and-found case to criminal offense. On Friday, members of the Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team, or REACT task force executed a warrant to search the home of a blogger, Jason Chen, who had published information about a lost Apple Inc. iPhone prototype, seizing computers and other equipment. Chen he returned home Friday to find police searching through his possessions, having broken down the front door.

REACT, the California police task force steering committee is reported to have included members of several large Silicon Valley firms -- including Apple, Google, Adobe, and others.
In a recent twist in the story, Gawker Media, the owner company of Gizmodo blog, claimed that the warrant used by police to search an editor's home was invalid.
In another statement, Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, told that the engineer who showed Woz an iPad on the morning of the iPad launch was fired. Woz told, he was not aware that the iPad was unreleased 3G version.
The iPad in question could be the following twitter photo of Woz holding iPad.

Lost and Found iPhone 4G, Apple wants it back

Next version of iPhone is expected to be released in June. But, this is the the first time an Apple device reached in somebody else’s hand (unauthorized) before being unveiled by Steve Jobs. It was so unlikely event that almost everybody suspected the authenticity of the device when TechCrunch published the photo of the iDevice. Then, by some means TechCruch’s rival blog Gizmodo got hold of the device. Gizmodo said it obtained the prototype a company engineer had left at a bar. The device, disguised as the current 3GS model, was found in a bar in Redwood City, California. Today, Gizmodo has reportedly told that it paid $5,000 to get hold of the device. Gizmodo said Monday evening that it is making arrangements to return the errant device, following a request from Apple's legal department. Gizmodo in a post posted the letter and says that the letter is a proof of the authencity of of the device: This phone was lost, and then found. But from Apple's perspective, it could have been considered stolen. I told them, all they have to do to get it back is to claim it—on record. This formal request from Apple's legal department is that claim. It proves—if there was any doubt in your mind—that this thing is real. It is still a mystery how an unreleased Apple product could be left at a most unlikely location, a bar. Apple is notoriously popular for closely guarding access to new products. According to some people familiar with a more than 10-page non-disclosure document for iPad, told that the testers had to promise to keep it quarantined in a room with blacked-out windows and key-card locks.  According to Gizmodo, the new device features: Front-facing video chat camera Improved back-camera (larger lens) Camera flash Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (like the iPad) Improved display. What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack Split buttons for volume Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic

Opera Mini - new browser in iPhone OS

Everybody knows how control freak Apple is. That was the reason why Opera developers held their breadth until the App Store approved the Safari compitator.

I wanted to try how this blog looks on the Mini. Here are some screenshots.

First screenshot: Doesn't look that good

I disabled the "Load Image" - for faster load time.

The I switch on the 'Mobile View'. This is the best view - without any plugins in server side the feature works great and the Google ads are all gone. For a webmaster, this might be a missed monetizing opportunity, but for a site visitor it sure is a best browsing experience. I wish it also remove Kontera ads.

iPad reviews: Best computer ever

Apple's iPad multimedia tablet goes on sale on Saturday, April 3, bundled with Winnie the Pooh iBook. Steve Jobs told the bundling the kid’s book in an interview featured in the latest issue of Time magazine. The the interview the Apple co-founder discusses the iPad, his career and his life. Reviews are pouring in and the reviewers obviously had high expectations on the Apple’s latest creation. As far as the expectations go – many reviewers think that the iPad has met or exceeded most of them. The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg thinks iPad's interface and design is great: The iPad is an advance in making more-sophisticated computing possible via a simple touch interface on a slender, light device. Only time will tell if it's a real challenger to the laptop and netbook. New York Time's David Pogue thinks everybody, who is not thinking of replacing the laptop, is going to enjoy the device. PCMagazine's Tim Gideon points out the iPad's limitations, but praises it nonetheless: BoingBoing's Xeni Jardin can imagine traveling with iPad instead of a netbook: I like it a lot. But it's the things I never knew it made possible - to be revealed or not in the coming months - that will determine whether I love it. The Houston Chronicle's Bob "Dr. Mac" LeVitus thinks that Apple's iPad is better than expected Think of the iPad as a new arrow in your technology quiver, an arrow that will often be the best tool for a given task. The Chicago Sun-Times' Andy Ihnatko says the iPad is pure innovation and one of best computers ever

April Fools 2010: Google Jail

It is April first and Google, for some time, has been playing prank on its visitors.
A website has claimed that this year's prank is called "Google Jail". The site has a screen-shot of the so-called Google Jail page.

I checked the page, but it showed a 404 Not Found Error message to me.

I hope it is not a prank on prank!

Anyways, that was a nice joke.
Happy April Fool's Day!

Desktop Computer - Google says it is at the end of its life

Google Europe sales chief John Herlihy says that the Desktop computer will reach its end of life in 3 years. Herlihy was speaking at the Digital Landscapes conference at UCD. “In three years time, desktops will be irrelevant. In Japan, most research is done today on smart phones, not PCs.” The view reflects Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s view at the recent GSM Association Mobile World Congress 2010.  Schmidt told that Google is looking everything through mobile lens, centering on the cloud, computing and connectivity. The fear is the next Sergey and Larry will come up with a disruptive technology or service that will eliminate the need for Google… … The digital world is fundamentally different to the traditional business world. Things happen much faster, websites spring up from nowhere, a video could be a YouTube hit in hours. When big names like Google say that some version of computer is going to be extinct in near future one can take it for granted. Even if it does not become obsolete by itself, they have the might and resources to kill it. With rapid development of smart phones, iPads, Microsoft Courier and similar device and operating system like iPhone OS, Crome OS, the future seems to be going mobile for sure. But, will the desktop become extinct in 3 years? We would certainly see signs in near future. sources- 1 | 2 |

Future Laptops - Rolltop

The tablet computer was supposed to replace laptop. Apple's tablet, iPad, unveiled last month however is not a laptop killer. Apple has tried to position the iPad in a totally new category rather than a laptop replacement. It is to be seen weather such an attempt will succeed.
Orkin Design, a design firm in Germany, has designed a concept tablet computer that can be rolled up and carried like a shoulder handbag. The large multi-touch screen can be unrolled and used as laptop and tablet computer. The computer features USB ports, webcam, stylus and everything today’s computers have.

I am not sure if the concept laptop is only a design concept or if some company has already considered it for production. The concept is good but I doubt it can capture the market unless the price is competitive. The Rolltop is more like a fashion accessory than a technology product.

Apple’s attempt to position iPad as a different computing category might be a strategic move to continue profiting from its more lucrative laptop (Macbook and Macbook Pro) business. It might also be a move to capture the Kindle and other ebook reader market. I don’t think Apple can stop the development of similar laptop replacement in near future.
Here is the video of the concept laptop.

Olympics Women’s Ice Hockey - Cigar beer and gold medal

Some time after they beat the United States 2-0 on Thursday, the Canadian women’s ice hockey team came back from the locker room and staged a party on ice. The party involved bottles of champagne, beer cans and cigars. Among others was 18-year-old superstar Marie-Philip Poulin, who was also drinking alcohol on the ice. The legal drinking age in British Columbia however is 19. The IOC has frowned on the action and has said that it would look into the matter. The winning team should have acted in a bit more responsive manner on the celebration of their winning -- drinking and smoking on the ice was a bit more than expected. (photo – AP)

5-months pregnant athlete in Olympics

Five and half months pregnant, 30 year-old, Kristie Moore, is one of the Team Canada curling team members competing in the Winter Olympics being held in Vancouver, Canada. She is the third pregnant athlete ever to compete in Olympic games. Ninety years ago, Swedish figure skater Magda Julin won a gold medal at the Antwerp Games while in her first trimester and Germany’s Diana Sartor took fourth in the skeleton in 2006. Moore is an alternative player and there is vey little chance she will actually play in the game. She is a backup player and will be called in only if she is needed. Even if she didn’t play, she will receive the medal Canada wins, if her team wins. Good luck with the team. For the unborn child, it would certainly be an honor to be born with an Olympic medal!

Global warming mystery

For the first time, a senior scientist working with the U.N. report on climate change has admitted that there is no real global warming in current time. The scientist behind the so-called "climate-gate" e-mail scandal admitted that there is no statistically significant global warming since 1995. The scientist believe that the time between 800 and 1300 A.D. could actually had been warmer than present temperatures. Such a news will be a blow to global warming advocates and it makes a easy for a layman not to believe in global warming. A recent BBC poll found that there is already a decrease in global warming believers. The Populus poll of 1,001 adults found 25% did not think global warming was happening, an increase of 10% since a similar poll was conducted in November. The pdf version of the poll report can be downloaded here. Believe or not earth has warmed-up as compared to a near past. But it has warmed and cooled a number of times (at least twice) in the past 1000 years. It might be an interesting read to understand: "If global warming real why is it cold?"

Pricewise the 16 GB iPad, for $499, is sure to succeed when you compare it with Kindle or Nook. But, it is to be seen weather the ‘zoomed-in iPod Touch’ will appeal the public. Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiling iPad, a new Apple tablet device:

Apple dream - Tablet on every home…

The apple tablet is gearing towards reality with the confirmation of the rumored January 27 special event. The invitation only event will featuring Apple’s “latest creation" will start Wednesday, January 27, 2010 at 10am Pacific Time. With recent development of events and news quoting “unnamed sources” it is an open secret that the event will release an Apple tablet. In addition to the tablet, Apple most probably will release iPhone OS4 and iLife 2010 to make them compatible with the tablet.   Apple with its much hyped tablet will seek to change the way television, news and books are delivered to consumers. Amazon Kindle seems to be feeling the heat: it has adopted the 70-30 share of revenue on books it sells online - identical to the business model employed by Apple with its App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch. The iPad, iSlate, iTablet or whatever name Steve Jobs will find most suitable, will be more like an all-round device unlike Amazon Kindle. The tablet can be a book reader, a TV, video player, a computer, personal notepad, and a cell phone. The subscription based text book also sound exciting for the students who line up to sell their used book at the end of each semester for a fraction of the price they had paid. In the last, post I talked about five basic features Apple tablet needs to succeed in the market. I will go through the list again on January 27th keeping in mind that Apple has a track record of going against the tide and succeed. Most of the time it is not only the features that sell, cost also can play a great role. A recent survey found that most of the people are reluctant to pay more that $700 for the device.
