  • Integrate SEO in your web design

    • In the first stages of web creation, you should already implement SEO. This means that you should keep in mind to put keywords in meta tags and titles of your webpage. Your domain is also an important part of SEO. Choose a domain name that include the keyword of your choice and you are sure to get presence in search engine results.

    • Keywords are very vital in search engine optimization. For each of your web page, it will be a good idea to focus on a single keyword. You can go for a different related keyword on the next page and so on. For example, you can use ‘vegetable gardening’ on page one and optimize the keyword ‘Japanese gardening’ on page two. Avoid redundancy and make sure that your content does not in any way look spammy.

Playing DVDs on Windows..no workie!!

With a regular install of Windows XP or Vista you may and you are trying to get a DVD to play, you may find that the system will give you errors or just play the audio. What the deal is that the codecs to play your DVD are not present. You may receive an error message that it cannot locate the proper codec and the DVD won’t play. This can be frustrating because you may not have a commercial DVD player application on hand. Sometimes commercial DVD’s will have a player for you to install on your computer, but some do not.

HARK!! Who GOES THERE????
There is a solution, though…

Download and install VLC media player from here. I use this for all video formats. I will play all formats.

This is a completely free and open source media player that supports DVD decoding. It allows you to play DVDs without having to purchase a commercial codec.

Remember that you can also check your DVD collection for a commercial player. Sometimes there is a complete application included with the disc that has the codecs available. Other times you may also want to check with your video card manufacturer (ATI or Nvidia usually) to see if they supply one with the card’s software.

Otherwise you’re stuck with buying one of these commercial codecs: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx
