    Fred Rice has updated his site with Magoo's stuff, and wants some spiderbites :)

    So, check it yourself:

    Thanks, Zinji.

    Can you tell me what "Spiderbites" are? :duh: One day I'll really learn
    all of this. Meantime................I dance and talk and write :happydance: :typing: :artist: :study: :aliengreeting: :gathering: :runaround: :fly2: :goodjob:

    My best :)

    It's a jocular reference to the search engines, which use 'spiders', or 'robots' to visit and 'index' a website. Since has had a lot added to it, Fred wanted to try to lure the spiders over, and, one good way to do that is to have a link from a high ranking site that's 'spidered' frequently; like ESMB :)

    The point to indexing is that the search engine then knows what's *on* the site and can offer links for relevant key words.

    ahhhhhhhhh---thanks! Man, very interesting.

    Now, wouldn't or be good, too?

    Just curious.

    Always learning, never a dull moment--this is for sure. Can you believe
    these last few days? It's outrageous here: Media, Anonymous calls, people
    who were "in" Scientology and left years ago---calling me. It's truly a wild time.

    And it's Monday! :happydance:

    Sure. And, any 'high ranking' site. But, you have to be careful about just pissing urls everywhere, like Durks does, because that's 'link spamming'

    Moderation in all things :)

    I don't follow "Durks"---so what is considered "Pissing URL's Everywhere?"

    Like on the bottom of most of my posts I'll add and So people who lurk have places to go to learn more.
    You don't mean that, do you?

    What defines what you're saying? Can you tell me that?

    No, it's about getting the url listed at sites; like etc. Since the search engines constantly 'spider' those sites, the link to your site gets the same (or close to the same) treatment.

    What Fred Durks loved to do was create dozens of cookie-cutter and plagiaristic sites and then spam the urls to places like wikipedia.

    That tends to backfire.

    It's certainly a good idea to get mentioned not only on but on OCMB, which I'm not sure Fred Rice has done

    Ok, thanks Zinji----I get it now.

    I'll see if Andreas has it, and if not, pound him to put it on.
    ((Like *that* would ever do any good :hysterical: ))

    But I'll check it out...thanks for the info.
