Interesting bit involving prizes below:
If entries are a little slower in the next 24 hours it’s because this is the time I’ve set aside to do this:
What you see there is a few of the unresolved URLs I’ve got since the changeover to a new blogging platform back in July. I moved from Movable Type to WordPress and whilst the usability of the platform is good, I’d never have done it if I knew what the after effect would be.
The addresses you see there are the ones that were in Google’s index prior to the changeover, and Google don’t like it when these change. As you can see, there’s 762 left in the ‘Removed Content’ section. They’re the ones that I’m having to hand-edit in the database so that the URL’s match.
Step 1 – split screen so you can see both Google and WordPress.
Step 2 – Sight the Google URL then find the entry in the database.
Step 3 – Check the URL and then hand-edit to match the Google version
Step 4 – Request that the removed content be re-submitted back into Google’s index
Step 5 – Go back to step 2 and repeat – 762 times.
The glamorous world of blogging.
I’ll still be posting stories amongst all this, so hang around.
The interesting bit.
After enjoying the Plate My Car competition so much I’ve decided to run another one. I’ve got two great prizes sitting here already, all I need is the competition.
I’m thinking of a photo contest, but your ideas as to what theme or challenge would be appreciated…..
So whilst I’m doing the tedious stuff above, put your thinking caps on and leave me some ideas please.
