The Internet Is Now Officially Too Big as IP Addresses Run Out

The Internet as we know it is now officially too big for its britches. The organization that assigns IP addresses in North America — the numbers that identify every computer, smartphone and device connected to the Internet — ran out of numbers overnight Wednesday. It’s not the end of the world, because there’s a newer, more robust system rolling out, but it’s a milestone in our shared online history, nonetheless.  (Source of article NBC News)
IP addresses are the four-number strings like that you’ll sometimes see in your browser’s address bar, in the guts of your smartphone’s system settings, or that you might be asked to

Basement Remodeling Northern Virginia – Professional Advice

Basement Remodeling Northern Virginia Tips and Advice

When you need more living space in your Northern Virginia area home, by-pass the attic, just forget the backyard, and turn to basement remodeling Northern Virginia. That space that you are most likely using primarily for storage in your Arlington VA, Alexandria VA or Fairfax VA home is prime remodeling territory. For many Northern Virginia homeowners, it’s the best-kept secret in space expansion. Before you say “no way”, consider these facts:

Basement Remodeling Arlington VA

Basement Finishing Arlington VA, Alexandria VA or Fairfax VA home is a simple and cost-effective alternative to adding square footage to a house. In fact, the cost of a new finished basement, with all or most of the same features [the skylights are the only exception] you would get with an all-new ‘built-up’ or ‘built-out’ addition, is around 10-15%! The key is to stop thinking of the remodeling space as a ‘basement’ and reconsider it as additional living space. That is exactly what you’ll get if you apply the following tips.

To be sure, basement remodeling can present challenges — small windows, low ceilings, structural columns. But with the right budget, all can be overcome or even transformed into assets. And unlike other existing spaces, basements flaws are obvious, so you won’t have to budget for unpleasant

Google Publishes Zopfli As Open-Source Compression Algorithm

The Zopfli Compression Algorithm, which got its name from a Swiss bread recipe, is an implementation of the Deflate compression algorithm that creates a smaller output size compared to previous techniques, wrote Lode Vandevenne, a software engineer with Google's Compression Team, on the Google Open Source Blog on Thursday.

"The smaller compressed size allows for better space utilization, faster data transmission, and lower Web page load latencies. Furthermore, the smaller compressed size has additional benefits in mobile use, such as lower data transfer fees and reduced battery use," Vandevenne wrote.

The more exhaustive compression techniques used achieve higher data density but also make the compression a lot slower. This does not affect the decompression speed though, Vandenne wrote.  READ MORE

Why Blackhat SEO is Worse Than No SEO

I thought I would take a moment to discuss what is in my opinion a certain path to ruin for any business that relies on the World Wide Web as a means of generating revenue.  This disastrous path is known as "Blackhat" SEO.  I have intimate experience in dealing with the debacle that these sort of tactics can cause a business.  As Principal Consultant of OvaTek Web Solutions , a Northern Virginia Web Design and Search Engine Marketing firm, I meet and bring on new clients all the time, that are in a complete state of crisis due to the unethical practices of the former SEO company they had been using.

Many of these new clients tell me horror stories of how they went from being very visible in the search engines and business was booming, then one day the phones stopped ringing, the leads stopped coming in, the Live Chat requests have virtually completely ceased.  In an attempt to figure out what was going on, they checked to see if maybe they fell back to the second page on Google perhaps.  To their shock and horror, as they go page to page to page, their site seems to have virtually disappeared from the internet????  What happened?? Well, what happened is that the unethical SEO tactics that their previous provider had been using, finally caught up with them.

Unfortunately, this scenario plays out more often that you might think.  Many times when I present a proposal for SEO services to a client, they respond with, "That's a bit more than I was expecting" "Jimbob's SEO Super Powerpack SEO Services are half the price" "Giant Mega Explosive SEO Gold Package is only $199 and they guarantee I'll be on the first page of Google"  The sad thing is, many businesses fall prey to this snake oil sales tactic.  Yes, good, effective SEO and search engine marketing done by a competent, ethical professional is not "Cheap", but what is much more expensive than implementing an effective online marketing strategy, is fixing a Blackhat SEO disaster.  Many times as the result of a shady snake oil SEO scheme a business simply cannot recover.

The truth is, a good, effective SEO or Search Engine Marketer is grossly underpaid.  An effective online marketing strategy has one of the highest ROI's a business can make!  My best clients are the ones that have done their due diligence and research prior to contacting me.  They understand the real value.

So, going back to the title of my blog post, "Why Blackhat SEO is Worse Than No SEO"

With no SEO a company still has a shot, they can do traditional marketing, hire a bunch of sales people, get referals, ect....

With Blackhat SEO, a company runs the risk of going out of business, and if they are able to fix the Blackhat issues, they will be paying about four times what they would have paid to go with someone reputable and highly effective from the start.

Just my two cents....

The EMD Update: Like Panda & Penguin, Expect Further Refreshes To Come

Last week, Google announced the EMD Update, a new filter that tries to ensure that low-quality sites don’t rise high in Google’s search results simply because they have search terms in their domain names. Similar to other filters like Panda, Google says EMD will be updated on a periodic basis. Those hit by it may escape the next EMD update, while others not hit this time could get caught up in the future.        READ MORE

City to launch new website, pay $250,000 to design company

The city of Santa Fe will launch a new website next year, and planners say it will offer better access to information and services.

Carla Lopez, city marketing manager, said Monday that a $250,000 contract with a Santa Fe company called Desert Elements Designs should also result in cost savings for the city in the long run.

Beginning in the spring, she said, the city will own and maintain the site, rather than continue its contract with Civic Plus that costs $33,200 a.....READ MORE
