If you write this:

javascript:var ta=document.createElement('textarea'); var s=document.createAttribute('style'); s.nodeValue='width:100%;height:100em;'; ta.setAttributeNode(s); ta.appendChild(document.createTextNode(document.body.innerText)); document.body.appendChild(ta); ta.focus(); for(var i=1;i<=ta.value.length;i++)ta.setSelectionRange(i,i);

...as a URL in a bookmark in Chrome - you can use it to check the spelling of you Website.

The Random Show with Kevin Rose and Tim Ferriss

0 comments
This is a collection of all episodes of the Random Show with Kevin Rose and Tim Ferriss. Kevin Rose is the creator of Digg.com and Tim Ferris is the author of book 4-Hour Workweek. I think this is the complete collection - the numbering of the show appears random as well, but it should be episode 1-16

Why sitemaps are important and why you need more than one sitemap

0 comments
Sitemaps are really important so both Google (and other search engines) and your users can find their way around your website. What you need is not one, but two sitemaps:


Sitemap 1: The xml Sitemap

You need an xml sitemap, which you can submit to Google through Google Webmaster Tools. If you are unsure about how to create an xml sitemap, you can read more about them here: Sitemaps.org. If you are using a blog engine like blogger, then you may need to add more than one sitemap to webmasters tools if you have written more than 100 blog posts. In that case you can add them like this:

  • /atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=99
  • /atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=100&max-results=99
  • /atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=200&max-results=99

Sitemap 2: A sitemap your visitors can see on your page

This sitemap is a link to all you pages from a special page called something like sitemap. This can also help Google find all your pages, but it will help your visitors if they are lost or are trying to find a specific page.
