2. It was just discovered that Internet Explorer versions 6 through 11 have a "bug' that allow someone to take control of your computer if you click on the wrong link that gives this control. Thieves are actively working to take advantage of that bug. Our recommendation is to stop using Internet Explorer until that bug is patched which should be in mid-May. However, if you still have Windows XP, Microsoft is not going to fix the problem so you should permanently stop using Internet Explorer.

It is in the area enclosed by <title> and </title>.
Some of the common errors with title tags are:
1. Leaving them blank
2. Giving every page the same title
3. Having the title and the page content not match
4. Making the title generic such as these:
You want each web page to have a descriptive “title”. It should contain fewer than 70 characters. It should include import key words (i.e. those words people would use to find you at search engines). You may want the title on your home page to include your brand name. When you are using multiple key words, you can space them with “|”. There is no perfect “title” for you to use as an example because your “title” must be customized to what you are trying to accomplish. Here are a few examples:
<title>Web Design | Affordable Web Design - website designing | Trusted</title>
<title>Tax Advice, Tips on How to Pay Less Taxes</title>
<title>Free Domain Name | Web Site Hosting| Easy | DomainNameSanity</title>
Our final suggestion is that you use a search engine to find websites similar to your own; both the successful ones and not so successful ones. Then see what title tags they are using. We think you’ll see a lot of great and poor examples with this method.

1. You cannot use the disk space for offsite backup. Therefore unless you are serving all of that content over the Internet to site visitors, you are violating their terms of service.
2. All hosting services monitor the amount of CPU usage and “hits” to the database. For most services, if you’re using more than some multiple of what the average user uses, they will block your account. This is a common problem for those whose content requires constant access to a database from a database driven content management system. We have seen many people who build their websites using these sophisticated programs designed for delivering a lot of changing content and then don’t update the content. What they end up with is a site that’s very inefficient.
3. Another old trick used by hosting services is that if you’re using a lot of bandwith, they simply slow the speed that they deliver the content of your website to visitors. If they slow it enough, they make their problem go away at the expense of your visitors getting slow response times.

The most common is those that send you an email or a letter through the US Mail telling you that your domain name is about to expire and you should renew it with them. What’s not so obvious without a careful reading of the letter, if then, is what’s really happening is that by authorizing them, they will try to move your domain name away from your current domain name servicer (which we hope is DomainNameSanity.com) to them and they will add one year to the domain expiration date in that process. What happens very frequently is that they cannot get this “transfer” done and they just keep the money without providing you the renewal. The solution for you is to only renew the domain name through the website where you purchased it; never through the US Mail.

All of my photos and files are stored on my computer which I backup frequently to a USB drive in my house but that’s not nearly enough. Here are a few steps beyond that. There are a number of services that provide you with free disk space. The most popular are:
Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

1. Your web page will load slooooowly. Everyone who visits your site doesn't have high speed Internet as many connect through 3G, 4G or a weak wifi signal and a few have dial-up. Even those with high speed Internet expect your entire site to load instantly and it won't without optimizing the photos.
2. Search engines, Google included, take into account how quickly your website loads when they determine ranking. You don’t want your website penalized because you failed to spend a few minutes to optimize the photos.
3. In rare cases your site has so many photos that aren’t optimized that you go over the resources allowed by your hosting company. Even for unlimited bandwidth providers (which isn’t really true), this is typical of their terms of service: We expressly reserve the right to review every Account for excessive space and bandwidth utilization, and to terminate or apply additional fees to those Accounts that exceed allowed levels.
So, that’s the “why” you want to optimize photos and the next question is “how”. First, web pages deal in the width and height of a photo in pixels. Those dimensions are critical. The concept of “dpi” (i.e. dots per inch) doesn’t apply in the online world because the concept of an “inch” is only for printing. Therefore, only changing the dpi of a photo without changing the width and height in pixels actually does literally nothing online.
The first step to optimize a photo is to reduce the width and height to the actual dimensions at which you’d like to display it. That should be done by a combination of cropping the photo, if needed, and “resampling” the image. To get technical for a second, there’s difference between resizing an image and resampling an image. When you resize an image, you do not change the number of pixles in the width and height but change the “dpi” (which does nothing online). When you resample an image, you change the number of pixels in the width and height (which is what you need to do).
So once you have the photo the correct width and height in pixels, you’ve done most of the work to optimize it. The next piece is to change the “quality” or “compression” of the photo. Naturally, you’d think that the higher the “quality”, the better the image would look online but that’s not true. Maximum quality is overkill. We recommend “high” quality. There are a number of pieces of software that ask you about the quality when you save an image (e.g. photoshop) and you should pay attention to that when you save the image. If you don’t have that type of software or want to take an easy method, clients of DomainNameSanity.com can simply use the online image optimizer that’s part of the “settings” on the file manager to automatically optimize the photo after you have set it to the proper width and height in pixels.
Finally, I’d like to demonstrate what we’ve been talking about to show three photos. Below is a photo we took in Glacier Bay in Alaska. We’re going to show them all to you as 400 pixel wide by 300 pixel tall images.

We're not going to walk you through the steps of setting up your Blogger.com account and creating the blog because Google does a wonderful job of doing that. However, we are going to give you a few pointers to help to integrate your blog with your website.
When we setup our blogger.com account, we didn't want the Internet address to be at the blogger.com domain name because we want our visitors to know the DomainNameSanity.com domain name. Blogger makes that very simple. Therefore the first thing we did was to go to "design" and then "settings" and set the "Publishing Blog Address" as "blog.domainnamesanity.com". If you're a DomainNameSanity.com client, we'd be happy to setup that redirect for you. Blogger will give you two CNAME records that need to be setup. Just send those to us. Once it's setup, you'll create a link on your website to the blog page.
The next important item is to link back to your website from your Blog. We wanted a horizontal navigation that was below the page "header" (which is the most common navigation method). Blogger has a series of Gadgets that you can add to your blog. One of them is called "Link List". You will "Configure Link List" as follows:
This entire process took us about 2 hours to setup including getting the colors the way we wanted it and researching all of the steps above. Hopefully, these steps will help you get the job done quicker. We'd appreciate your feedback on this article, your Liking us on Facebook and giving us ideas for future articles.Thank you.
