  1. It doesn't just block pop ups, but on page ads as well. This is most obvious on YouTube, all you get is videos. No ads on the right, no ads before the video loads.
  2. AdBlock is the best.
  3. Thanks mate that's all great advice I actually write for another blog already so will see if and how my site is listed on there, and ask for it to be if not. I'll have a think about how i can update my blog more with relevant content too. Does the whole link thing have to generate traffic for Google to pick it up, or is it just purely ok for me to have links as long as they are in the right place even if no-ones clicking on them? The main point in ranking well on Google is to get traffic, so if you can build links that automatically get you traffic that's best. You don't necessarily need people to click on them for Google to find them, they just need to be on pages/sites that Google will crawl. The better the site, the quicker it'll be seen and the more value it'll give your site. Having a load of links on crap sites might help as you start a site, but won't do much for you later on.
  4. Just got FM12 and want to know what the best way to get rid of Smith is. I've offered him round on a free but no one wants him -- will they a bit later? Should I just terminate his contract? Is he one of those glitches where he's actually quite good?
  5. Basic things you need: unique content and lots of links. Lots of companies have blogs these days. This gives your site fresh, new content on a regular basis which means users and Google has a reason to return to your site. If Google likes to see that you're constantly updating. Blogs (or similar) come in a variety of forms -- the best are industry related (ie not just about you - "today I took some photos", "today I edited some photos"), reviews (what you think of various cameras etc) or how to guides (simple tips that show you as an expert and will actually help photographers, but not enough that your skills aren't needed). Obviously chucking in a few links back to your site with words like photography as the anchor text will help. Getting external links is trickier. Until about a year ago directories and article/PR sites were popular, but because of Google's Panda update these techniques don't work so well. They're probably still good for new sites, but won't help once you get to a certain stage. Guest blogging is popular -- basically you write a post for another site and they give you a bio explaining who you are and give a couple of links back to your site. If you have a blog on your own site doing guides, it's best to write about something else (reviews, maybe) for other sites. If you can, a regular 'column' on another blog is good, but it's worthwhile trying to get one post on lots of related sites. This increases your exposure and your backlink count. My Blog Guest is a good place to find blogs that accept guest posts.
  6. In terms of years, Cleopatra lived closer to the moon landing than she did to the building of the pyramids. Similarly, T-rexes lived closer to humans (~65m years) than to stegosauruses (~85m years).
  7. Sure, but if the bill (either SOPA or PIPA) passes, then that won't be an option. Wikipedia isn't doing this to be a dick, just to show you a tiny part of what will happen if it goes ahead. Basically any site you can contribute to (such as toontastic) will have its DNS deleted. (Toontastic will be affected because it's registered through 123-reg, which is an ICANN accredited registrar and anything related to ICANN is susceptible to the bill.) More info here: http://www.reddit.com/ You can also just turn off javascript. I know what its about man As you clearly showed with your previous post +appropriate smiley

  9. How to look like Leon Best
  10. http://www.hostelbookers.com/ is similar but without booking charges.
  11. I'm not sure I understand your Scottish groupings.
  12. Is there any way of shoehorning Luque into this? If Obertan is worth £3 mill and Luque £9.5 mill, then Ruel Fox is worth £50 mill.
  13. Bring back Swindon Mag. "Ameobi coming good?" "Frank Clark as next manager?"
