<div id=layer1 style="position:absolute; top:50; left:40;
    width:100; height:300; z-index:1; padding:0px; />

How Often Should I Change Meta Tags In My Site?

Meta Tags, SEO Comments »
I have a website, where I constantly add new information, so the site is changing. This is not everyday, but at least a couple of times per week. Newsletter, tips, etc, are put on the site. The content changes, but the subject matter does not. I want to keep the relevant in the search engine lists. How often should I update meta tags or does it matter since the subject matter does not change (same topics, new info)? Also, will changing meta tags too often "penalize" my site. I have never used a submission service because I was told they really don't work. Any thoughts on this. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Googlebot And Webserver Questions

SEO Comments »
I am having problems with web server(s) getting bogged down by google bots. I am looking for more information and help on this specific topic.

The site that the google bots are looking up is HUGE- dozens of pages with hundreds of links. Google appears to be crawling the site at 5 minute intervals and all of this indexing (or whatever its doing) is taking up resources nad costing big money. I am afraid if I put a robots.txt file that the site will not come up as high on the google search page.

Any help or info? I have found plenty of info that tells me "this is what a web crawler is" but nothing goes past that.

Need Help With Regular Expression?

Javascript, Regular Expressions Comments »
Hi all,
I need help with Regex (Regular Expression).

For example there's a webpage on a website, and I want to get the first link on that webpage, after certain words.
e.g:
"Website from http://www.website.com/blabla.php?var=blabla&se=3290 is awesome"

question: how to get the link only
http://www.website.com/blabla.php?var=blabla&se=3290

Here's a solution using javascript:

var strW = "website from http://www.website. com/blabla.php?var=blabla&se=3290 is awesome";
var regW = /(website|Website).* (http[^\s]*).* (awesome|great)/;
if (regW.test(strW)) alert (RegExp.$2);

Add/delete the key words preceding and following the URL. The URL is referenced using RegExp.$2

How To Add A Favicon… Little Bit Help Needed…

favicon Comments »
You know, when you type in
<link rel="WHAT DO U TYPE HERE" a href="www.yourwebsite.com/favicon.ico

Please tell me if it’s right… Thanks and pls correct it.

Upload your icon to your directory in your website with .ico extention and with 32×32 dimension.

You don’t need any code if your favicon file named favicon.ico and resides in the root folder. Otherwise, your code must be

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="filename.ico"/>

if your favicon file named filename.ico
