Consider what happens when a user removes part of your URL Some users might navigate your site in odd ways, and you should anticipate this. For example, instead of using the breadcrumb links on the page, a user might drop of a part of the URL in the hopes of finding more general content.
A site map (lower-case) is a simple page on your site that displays the structure of your website, and usually consists of a hierarchical listing of the pages on your site.
Visitors may visit this page if they are having problems fiding pages on your site.
While search engines will also visit this page, getting good crawl coverage of the pages on your site, it’s mainly aimed at human visitors.
An XML Sitemap (upper-case) file, which you can submit through Google’s Webmaster Tools, makes it easier for Google to discover the pages on your site. Using a Sitemap fie is also one way (though not guaranteed) to tell Google which version of a URL you’d prefer as the canonical one (e.g. http://brandonsbaseballcards.com/ or http://www.brandonsbaseballcards.com/; more on what’s a preferred domain). Google helped create the open source Sitemap Generator Script to help you create a Sitemap file for your site. To learn more about Sitemaps, the Webmaster Help Center provides a useful guide to Sitemap fies
The navigation of a website is important in helping visitors quickly fid the content they want. It can also help search engines understand what content the webmaster thinks is important.
Although Google’s search results are provided at a page level, Google also likes to have a sense of what role a page plays in the bigger picture of the site.
Plan out your navigation based on your homepage
All sites have a home or “root” page, which is usually the most frequented page on the site and the starting place of navigation for many visitors. Unless your site has only a handful of pages, you should think about how visitors will go from a general page (your root page) to a page containing more specific content. Do you have enough pages around a specific topic area that it would make sense to create a page describing these related pages (e.g. root page -> related topic listing -> specific topic)?
Do you have hundreds of different products that need to be classified under multiple category and subcategory pages?
404 (“page not found” error)
An HTTP status code. It means that the server could not find the web
page requested by the browser.
Ensure more convenience for users by using ‘breadcrumb lists’
A breadcrumb is a row of internal links at the top or bottom of the page that allows visitors to quickly navigate back to a previous section or the root page (1). Many breadcrumbs have the most general page (usually the root page) as the fist, left-most link and list the more specific sections out to the right.
A list of the pages on a particular website. By creating and sending this list, you are
able to notify Google of all pages on a website, including any URLs that may have been
undetected by Google’s regular crawling process.
Imagine you have this scenario – the order of a table which relies on its order has been muddled up by some bad code and you wish to sort it out with the least effort possible.
You can write a quick SQL script which will reset the order to the right set (seen on the right).
To find out what your order should be, include the ROW_NUMBER() command as below:
select * ,ROW_NUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY Orders ASC) AS Row
from DM_ReportColumns where [conditions]
Then you can run an update based on your primary keys (in this scenario, I have ReportID, Username and ColumnID as keys.
UPDATE DM_ReportColumns SET Orders = x.Row
,ROW_NUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY Orders ASC) AS Row
from DM_ReportColumns where ReportID = 'A01' and Username = 'user1'
) as x
WHERE x.ReportID = DM_ReportColumns.ReportID
AND x.Username = DM_ReportColumns.Username
AND x.ColumnID = DM_ReportColumns.ColumnID
Eddie Tipton, the former security director of the Multi-State Lottery Association, reportedly installed software code to be able to know winning numbers.
Eddie was convicted of rigging the $16.5m jackpot in Iowa in 2015. At the moment, he is awaiting trial in four other states. The lottery security director was charged after being identified on the surveillance footage of a person buying the winning ticket for a $16.5m jackpot in 2010. Tipton, who had unparalleled access to lottery software, was identified on the footage by his colleagues.
Prosecutors say Tipton installed software known as a root kit that enabled him to manipulate numbers without a trace. What tripped him up, investigators say, was his decision to buy the winning ticket himself at a service station near the headquarters of the association, whose workers are prohibited from trying their luck.

Motivating yourself to excel at your job or to be an example to your employees, should not be something you do only when the spirit moves you. It’s an ongoing process that should include every facet of your business life. This means your mental attitude, physical well-being and appearance, work atmosphere, your interaction with others (clients and employees alike), and your off-the-job environment.
Ask yourself are you paddling or floating your canoe down the river of your business life? If you’re floating then you’re on the defense, if you’re paddling then you’re on the offense – where do you want to be?
In today’s business climate if you’re not on the offensive then you’re being whipped and buffeted from every side by the obstacles you encounter. If something isn’t working in your advertising and you’re a floater then you just wait until next week, or next month and see if it improves. But if you’re paddling and guiding your business, then you’re busy working out how to fix what’s not working. Continue reading “ARE YOU PADDLING OR FLOATING?”→
