Top Ten Usability Errors 2003

Dec 22nd

The more you read, the more you realize how narcissistic many top professionals are. Everyone believes that what they are doing is not getting its fair share of coverage.

The experts are usually viewed as the experts for a reason though. While they may say some incorrect or far reaching ideas, most of their ideas are "Spot On."

With that being said here are Jakob Nielson's "Top Ten Usability Errors of 2003."

Black Hat SEO

Ok so we all need to have a little fun now and then. As I stated earlier I have been trying out some of the directory script software.

Here is a fully functional tounge in cheek directory I titled "Black Hat SEO"

Thanks Bob for telling me the origin of tounge in cheek.

Web Site Software Submission Spam

Most search engine traffic comes from the top few search engines. Time spent registering a website with all kinds of small random third pary engines is just a waste of time. As hard as it may be for you to promote your own business imagine how hard it would be to promote a search engine, especially one with no technological advantage over those already in existance.

As part of my service to do good on the internet I will point out crap offers for garbage software I do not use.

Today I got spam from brainfind@eliteconcepts.com for BuildTraffic.com To Your Web Site !

More on the Google Florida Update

Dec 16th

Another interesting article by Gord Hotchkiss.

I think his articles, the one from Barry Loyyd, and Danny Sullivan's resource center are resting as the answer for what has happened.

Another couple good entries about the subject are done by Da' Tmeister and Andrew Goodman. Beyond those articles most of the activity has came from within the SEO forums. I must state that I have the utmost of respect for Danny Sullivan as he was one of the first people who linked into my article.

Most of the other people in the SEO field ignored the existence of my early article with the exception of the dubious website that had a generic article with an extremely similar name to my article...
Today many SEO websites still have dissatisfied customers and are now producing third rate rehash articles only citing a few of the above sources.
