Nexus One vs Water

So my foray into the world of smartphones was brought to a short end over the weekend when my Android was destroyed by a minor spillage. At this stage, I'm wondering if smartphones are all they are cracked up to be, and whether I actually want to buy a replacement. I'm just not sure - I guess I expected a lot more from the Android. And so it ends It all happened one Saturday morning. The phone was on the floor under the bed, plugged into the charger. This may sound like an odd place to keep it, but there's a reason for everything. Firstly, the bedroom is one of 2 places in the house that... 22 Feb 2011

Nexus One vs Iphone 4

A couple of weeks ago I got a shiny new Nexus One Android phone. I thought long and hard about whether Android was a better choice for me than iPhone and eventually decided that it was - although both platforms have their fair share of nice touches and frustrations. The purpose of this blog post is to convey my initial thoughts that went into the purchase process (specifically iPhone4 vs Android), and explain what I do and don't like about the Nexus / Android. I'm well aware that this topic has been covered before, but actually I was surprised at what things actually mattered to me once I... 10 Sep 2010

How to get a non-profit Paypal account approved

Getting a Paypal account is quick and easy, you can be all done in less than 10 mins. However, for non-profit accounts, there is a rather substantial account review process that needs to be completed. This blog post documents what you should expect through this account review, based on my recent account setup for Wanaka Toy Library - which took almost 2 months to complete the review process. I hope the following step-by-step guide is useful to another charity / non-profit organisation, and reduce this to a more reasonable timeframe. This is aimed at New Zealand non-profit organisations,... 23 Aug 2010

Trolls and email addresses

Privacy seems to be a fairly hot topic these days and I watched with interest when a local company made a bit of a blunder and the privacy police promptly jumped all over them. The offender was Paymex, a local New Zealand payment gateway provider that is sadly closing their doors - and bulk emailed an announcement all their customers without remembering to BCC all the addresses. Oops. I haven't used their service for some time, so this announcement doesn't affect me, I read the announcement, deleted it, and carried on with my life. However, not everyone was so contented and some... 7 Jul 2010

Site contents

This blog can be thought of as a Search engine optimization (SEO) resource for intermediate level webmasters. Beginners might be scared off by PHPSESSID and duplicate content, but it's all important stuff if you want to compete with the big fellas.
  • SEO Articles / Blog - somewhat regular entries covering whatever is happening at the time. I like to think my SEO articles are interesting and relevant to website owners wanting to add a measure of quality to their sites.
  • SEO Tools - The >spam-o-meter is still a popular SEO tool for ranking the desireability of a link exchange partner. Also check out the redirect tool if you think your site is totally free from duplicate content problems (most aren't).
  • SEO Consulting / SEO services - Yes, I do offer paid SEO consulting, as well as the monkey work it usually entails
  • Web development outsourcing - A fair portion of what I do is working for other web developers or design agencies. You provide the design and manage the client, I'll do the rest.
  • Link exchange partnerships - No. I'm just kidding.
