Add Favicon in Blogger and WordPress

Have you ever wondered how some sites add those little custom graphics to the address bar, at the top of the browser? For example, Google adds the letter G, and Adobe adds its logo. You too can add any image to your site – you just have to get it in the right format.

Fortunately, turning a graphic into a favicon (or shortcut icon) is easy and free with Favicon from Pics (www.htmlkit.com/services/favicon). Just upload any graphic of your own, and this online tools automatically converts it into a favicon that you can use on your site. After your image is saved in the ICO format, you simply upload it to the main root folder of your Web site, and your image is automatically displayed on the address bar in a browser.

Favicons also appear in the list of bookmarks, or favorites (which is where the name comes from) when a visitor saves your Web sites in a browser. Thus, including a favicon can make your site stand out from a list of saved Web addresses and can help build and strengten your brand.

Install Joomla in your Website

Joomla! is a content-management software program designed to assist users with running a website. Rather than editing actual HTML, individuals running a Joomla! site can use the software’s visual editor and extension packages to modify and create new web pages. Thus, even individuals who do not have web design experience can run a Joomla!-based site. Setting up a Joomla! site can help web designers create user-friendly websites quickly and efficiently.
Before we start creating a website, we must select the correct content management software for the website. Some are offline and some are online. What we suggested here are : Joomla! and wordpress, which is easy-to-use and there is many professional designed template with a little or no cost.
Following steps shows how you can install a joomla! software to your webhosting website.

things you’ll need:

  • Webhosting account with domain name
  • Joomla! software
  • FTP software

Stop Making the 6 Biggest SEO Mistakes

Within search engine optimization (SEO) there are plenty of mistakes that people make that they need to stop making. So if you do any of the following, it’s time to stop, especially if you want a new beginning for your SEO in 2011.

1. Home is Not Where the Traffic is

Sure, it’s your home page, but that doesn’t mean that you want it to rank for the word “home.” Unless you’re a real estate company or a homebuilder, it makes no sense to call your home page “Home” — and even then you’d want to expand that out with other terms that cover your business.

Your home page should be targeted to the primary terms that you’re trying to rank for. For example, if you’re a plumber, your home page title should target your plumbing services in your locality.

2. Moving the Staging Robots.txt to the Production Site

This issue happens more often than it should. If done correctly, your staging server’s robots.txt should block all spiders from crawling the site.

However, when the code is pushed live the robots.txt shouldn’t move with it. I’ve seen large sites experience a sudden dip in traffic after release, all due to the spiders doing exactly what they’re being told to do: not to index the production site — you know, the place where you used to make money…

The reverse of this is also an issue: Not blocking the spiders from the staging server. Once a link to a staging server appears in the wild, all bets are off. The staging server will then be indexed, you’ll have duplicate content issues, and the world can see what you’re up to.

Make sure to block spiders from indexing the staging server, and let them in where you want them to be on the production site. The easiest way to do this is to make sure that it’s added in as a step in your QA checklist.
