It is later to post the updates of the optimization campaign.
The works I did in these days is very important and very basic. It is boring and time-consuming. There is no shortcut.
I spend hours to check the broken links on my site here.
Based on the program which is follow the href links in html files, over 400 broken links found. There are different situations.
- Sites are shutdown. Links to them are removed.
- Domain name of site is changed, 301 redirect implemented. Links to them are updated.
- Structures of sites are changed, content is moved to other URL. Links to them are updated.
An eCommerce company needs to have a reliable web host to ensure that its customers can access the site at all times. If your site is down, it means that your business is temporarily out of commission. Your customers could decide that they are fed up with your unreliable site and go to the competition to make their purchases.
Another issue that you will run into is having a site that loads slowly. You don’t want your site to load slowly because the search engines will penalize your site. Additionally, no one wants to sit at their computer for more than a minute waiting for their page to load or their credit card information to be processed.
A good web host will make sure that your site is secure at all times. Using eCommerce web hosting from Network Solutions makes it easy to create secured connections when your customers want to make a purchase. If a customer has their information tampered with or stolen while a transaction is in progress, your company could be liable for any damages that the customer incurs.
It is critical that you pick the right web host for your eCommerce site. This is because you need a host that will keep your site up as much as possible while providing the security that it needs to keep your customers happy.

There a more than one thousand post on my Blog. I am continuing review these posts and do whatever modification needed.
During Day 8 and Day 9, I reviewed about 500 posts. Added content, fixed typos, change the sequence of paragraph, etc.
It is a boring job. It took most of my time.
When I do it, I played the song on computer. Like this my favorite one.
I watched The Voice of China (Seacon 2) Epsoid 7 tonight on Youtube. The last second song is still very powerful after 25 years.
Here is the clip of LIU Caixing and GAO Yang.
At last LIU Caixing won.
I will post another video clip after it. Which is the written by Cui Jian. He is considered to be a pioneer in Chinese rock music and one of the first Chinese artists to write rock songs. For this distinction Cui Jian is often labeled “The Father of Chinese Rock”.
It is the last day of first week. Day 7.
I reviewed the latest fifty posts and make addition or modification on some posts.
The main target of it is to make the first paragraph has more valuable content. It is a tough work, time consuming work. But it worth.
The second purpose of it is to make the first paragraph longer enough. Then the Google Ads shown beside will not cover pictures or not big blank space.
I am also add shadow and border line on pictures inside of the post. A lot of pictures are white background. When the margin is not that bigger, the pictures and text content are not clearly separated. Now 10px shadow and 1px border are added. The format is looks better.
To make the site clean and faster loading, I remove one piece advertising script.
The ads removed is provided by Kontera, I used it for many years. It is a content link ads. It mimics text link. When mouse move over it, a small float layer display a small box with ads. About five to ten Kontera links are added on each of my post. Now I took it away. The page looks less links on it.
The second change I made is to move Google Ads from the middle center of the post content to the right up inline of the post. Personally, I feel better look. And more content will be shown above the fold.
After the above two changes, the Fully Loaded time is reduced about 25% on first view.
Weekend, it is time for rest, but I am still keep my two week campaign moving on.
Remove some old code from monthly archives. These code make the page shown very slow.
Follow twelve people on twitter each day.
Make a new kind archive template. It generate the last 10 post each category. Then I can pick one or two categories and shown them on home page. Right now I add Hardware, Software and Internet on home page. These three are most active categories.
A few days ago, I upgrade the Webmin to 1.640 at my VPS. Now I saw another updates on the Webmin control panel.
Version 1.650 (17th August 2013)
- Fixed bugs in the Apache and Software packages module.
- Added the ability to change the execution time of Webmin scheduled functions.
It is kind of important to keep the Webmin installation update.
I run it on my Burst.net, Linode, and Digital Ocean VPSs.
Social Networks play very important roles in current Internet world. From Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Linkedin, these giant social player, to Pinterest, Path, Intagram, Foursquare, smaller networks.
All I want to do today, is to make a plan. Be an active users in above social networks.
Frankly speaking, I am a heavy user of Twitter. There is a small Chrome window staying at the second monitor.
I have 608 followers right now. Here is a tool can track the changes of your followers.
Another tool is call Unfollowers.me, which can tell you who isn’t following you back.
It is kind easy, when I check the people who I am not follow back, I can follow them. I can also take certain action to those does not follow back to me.
Regarding Facebook, I spend a lot of time on it. Social and Games.
Game is also part of social. My Facebook page of David Yin’s Blog. It is another way to get more people to follow me.
Google is not good at Social network. It failed many times. But, it looks it is serious this time.
I will try to use Google Plus as my third social network tool. Hope it can attract new audience here.
