A nice round up presentation from last year! I came across it together and instead of bookmarking it, I have placed it here.
A great presentation about social media.
As a parent of two ‘younglings’, and considering my line of work and dangerous insight into what social networking on the internet can do. I am already concerned for their immediate and future online safety and reputation. I came across this presentation. I think it is worth a share.
Well, as it happened to me today, I can tell you, I felt SICK! and a bit light headed. You might have lost hours of work, or that last great diagram you painstakingly drew by hand.
Well, there is still a small chance that your lovely auto-save has a version from a few minutes ago and has not deleted it yet.
So, before you let rip with a barage of expletives in-front of your colleagues try this final go.
On the top ribbon, choose “File”, then select “Options”
Down the left hand side find the 3rd option called “Save” and select
Find the label “AutoRecover file location:”. It will contain a file path, something most like this –> C:Users
Copy this out, paste into the top of Windows Explorer and you will find a mish-match of non-deleted versions of your work.
Look at the files for a similar file name. Likely the first part the same, followed by lots of numbers. Check the timestamp and if it is in the previous 10 minutes you may be able to stop crying and carry on with your day!
Hope it helps.
Note: I am on Windows 7 and PowerPoint 2010.
If you are running a blog alongside the main site or using wordpress to run in a subdomain you may want to update the standard logo click from returning a usage to the blog homepage to another location.
If you have a regular WordPress setup you can hack this together quite quickly.
Don’t forget to copy the contents to somewhere safe just in case you have a keyboard slip!
<a href="'; bloginfo('url'); echo '/">
However, if you update your theme you may loose your personal hacks/updates. If you clever and need to make many alterations, you should look into Child Themes, but that is for another day. Hope that helps a little.
If you need to use an embed code section on your site to get this effect. This is example embed code from a live example infographic we recently put lived.
You need to use a few different tags and attributes including
Your code will look something like this:
<textarea id="copytext" cols="60" rows="5" onclick="SelectAll('copytext'); pageTracker._trackEvent(['Infographics', 'copy_share', 'embed_code']);">
<a href="http://example.com"><img src="http://images.example.com/infographic_lq.jpg" alt="Alt text" width="490px" height="4605px" border="0"></a>

Hope that helps. We all learn through doing!
The crawl data that you can download from Google’s Webmaster Central Tool would be much more useful IF you could arrange the data by date. You can’t pivot or sort data if the data is [first of all] in American date format, and 2ndly some is in date format, some in text format and some just throws an error.
So, how do you cleanse this data?
Click on the “Download” option inside in Google’s webmaster tools interface
Here is the advice from the Excel help file
Importing text files
You can use Excel to import data from a text file into a worksheet. (On the Data tab, in the Get External Data group, click From Text.) The Text Import Wizard examines the text file that you are importing and helps you ensure that the data is imported in the way that you want.
There are two ways to import data from a text file by using Excel: You can open the text file in Excel (which does not make a connection to the text file), or you can import the text file as an external data range (which does make a connection to the text file).
There are two commonly used text file formats:
Delimited text files (.txt), in which the TAB character (ASCII character code 009) usually separates each field of text.
Comma-separated values (CSV) text files (.csv), in which the comma character (,) usually separates each field of text.
You can also change the separator character that is used in both delimited and .csv text files. This may be necessary to make sure that the import or export operation works the way that you want it to.
You will be importing a .csv
Use the Text Import Wizard. I have never had to make any changes on the first step.
On step 2 of 3, you should choose COMMA and not Tab.
Here is the important bit. On step 3 of 3 you can choose what is the format for the import. So, in the “Data Preview” pane, scroll to the right. Select the Date column and choose your preferred date format (see arrow).
Click Finish. Select the location you want your new table.
You would think that you would now be finished! No, Google also give us 2 date format
I am sure that there must be an easier way than this, please share if you know. You can’t just format cells to date. So, insert some new columns to the right of the date column.
You are now ready to actually use your own data. Google please help us!
However, there are still bad data and formats in the data. So, I always prefer server side tools.
The other day I accidentally managed to take a screenshot on my Samsung Galaxy (orginal). So, I thought I would share that information here as I couldnt find this previously when I was searched.
If it makes a difference I am running –> Model: GT-19000. Firmware:2.3.3
In-case you don’t know what the home and backup buttons are – here is a handy reminder.
As simple as that.
I am sure that other manufacturers or hardware behave differently. But anyway, that’s my experience.
One of my roles as I see it is to demystify SEO, web and internet & marketing technologies. So, I will try to do this one justice too.
First of all, lets define the internet. According to Wikipedia:
The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to serve billions of users worldwide.
So, that is quote full of jargon. This is basically the infrastructure that connects our computers, servers and any other device that uses data. And to use the words correctly the Web is mainly about the sites you use, HTML etc etc.
Hope that makes sense! And inside that you may want to know what server response codes.
Most of this all happens in less than a blink of an eye – clever hey.
