Pitbulls.org has passed 50,000 Facebook likes on our page.

My guest post at Problogger shows just how we got the snowball tumbling.

Don't Run a Twitter Contest

I should clarify a bit. Don't run a contest where you use Twitter as the main way for people to enter the contest. Unless you already have a large following, you will be disappointed.

Duplicate Content Problems with the Drupal Quicktabs Module

I'm a big fan of the Quicktabs module, which easily lets you create tabbed content in Drupal.  However, there is an SEO problem that people should be aware of when using it.

On my Pitbulls.org site, I noticed Google indexing multiple versions of the same page.  This is known as duplicate content and it can penalize your rankings. Given that I had already modified my robots.txt file specifically to prevent this type of thing, I was a little confused.

Apple iPhone vs. Droid: No One Cares

One of the reasons Yahoo Search is somewhat less trusted in the industry is because they have a paid inclusion system.

And your customers, especially new customers, need your guidance.  They need hand-holding.  They need to be treated like children.
