So, when I saw the iPhone I got all excited and wanted to have one. Then I learned it would be locked down to Cingular's network. That won't work. I'm going to Argentina/Chile/Uruguay for about a year leaving in September of this year. So, if I get a new phone it had better work in Argentina.
Wikipedia is going to use the nofollow for all external links on their site. Well that's just crazy talk. They need a better solution than this and while I'm not entirely sure what the better solution is, the solution definitely isn't to just nofollow everything. Honest editors of wikipedia pages are now denied one of the few ways that Wikipedia can "give back".
SEO Webmaster Way to Nofollow your Wikipedia Links
So, let's say that you are a lazy webmaster. You don't want to go back and edit all of your wikipedia links to add the nofollow attribute to them. So, what do you do? You write a little filter for Drupal (you build all your sites in Drupal, right? You don't? Well just hire me to do that for you then...) So yeah, you create a filter for Drupal that will filter all of your wikipedia links to add a nofollow tag.
The irony of the nofollowlist module
To me, the irony of the nofollowlist module is that it implements something basically like what Wikipedia needs. If they could create a list of spammer sites (let's call it a blacklist) and then filter against that blacklist then their problem is solved. Brilliant!
Download, Compatibility, and Install
I'm not sure this thing really belongs in the contrib area on Drupal.org. If folks want me to add it I will, but until then just download it from this page. Oh yeah, and it's only tested with Drupal5 though a 4.7 version would probably be trivial (if it doesn't work already).
You can now get it from the project page on drupal.org
My friend Michael Hawley started doing Real Estate in Salida, Colorado a little while ago. If you don't know, Salida is located at the exit (Salida means exit in Spanish) of a high mountain plain in Colorado that includes Buena Vista, Poncha Springs, and several other cities. It's the "banana belt" of Colorado meaning that temperatures in Salida remain pretty moderate all winter long.
Our good friends Kaycie Rosen and her fiancee Steve Grigel just moved down to Colorado after spending a few years living in Anchorage. We're really excited to have them around again and, perhaps even more exciting, is that Kaycie is a Naturopathic Doctor and just opened the doors of her own Holistic Medicine Clinic in Golden, Colorado.
For a little while now Google has been offering a payment for referrals of an IE user that result in a "Firefox with Google Toolbar" installation. (that links to information about the program, not a link that would make me money).
In a keynote address today Jason Calacanis said “SEO is bullshit, if you generate a web page with good content Google will rank the page properly” Let’s see if that’s true.
