Google’s Mobile Algorithm – Are you mobilized?

Google's Mobile Algorithm - Are you mobilized?
If you’ve been paying attention – and I know you have – these mobile devices they have now are pretty popular… 😉 Pretty popular as in, “what’s a desktop computer?” popular. As in, “Star Trek is so old school, the phone in my pocket is more advanced than Seven of Nine’s PADD from the 24th century” popular. As an early ...

A Brief History of the World Wide Web

A Brief History of the World Wide Web

Massive Attack... Great Band Name...
…oh wait, it already is. <sarcasm>As hysterically funny as that is</sarcasm>, I’m referring to the massive WordPress attack which is not hysterically funny.
