Meta tags are important for seo

Today I was searching for the keyword “emirates driving” to locate Dubai Emirates Driving Institute website and I came across this on the search result

Dubai Emirates Driving Institute bad seo

I was shocked to see the description in the search result ;-). Then I inspected the code of the website which gave me lot of information ..

<title>Emirates Driving Institute – Home</title>
<meta name=”description” content=”Joomla – the dynamic portal engine and content management system” />
<meta name=”keywords” content=”Joomla, joomla” />
<meta name=”Generator” content=”Joomla! – Copyright (C) 2005 – 2006 Open Source Matters. All rights reserved.” />

Now it is very clear to me that meta tags are really important to search engine optimization. And emirates driving school website is driven by a famous open source application named Joomla 😀

Javascript Library jquery

For past few days I was playing around with this javascript library jquery which is really light and powerful.
This was told by Nishanth from our company. He is a great fan of this tool and even I am one now.

http://jquery.com/

Some of examples to use this library

$(“p.surprise”).addClass(“ohmy”).show(“slow”);

The selectors are really powerful and makes life very easier. Samples

Hide all Paragraph elements that contain a link:

$(“p[a]”).hide();

Show the first paragraph on the page:

$(“p:eq(0)”).show();

Hide all divs that are currently showing:

$(“div:visible”).hide();

Get all list items that are children of an unordered list:

$(“ul/li”)
/* valid too: $(“ul > li”) */

Get all Paragraphs, with a class of ‘foo’, that have a link in them:

$(“p.foo[a]”);

Get list item that contains link with “Register” text inside:

$(“li[a:contains(‘Register’)]”);

Get the input field’s value with the name of ‘bar’:

$(“input[@name=bar]”).val();

All checked radio buttons:

$(“input[@type=radio][@checked]”)

Blog update

It has been really long time since I posted something. It was totally a busy month at flip working on a new project. It was really exciting and the project is running on beta phase right now. Lot of bug fixes and feature requests are happening. Lot of my friends have started to blog. Their blog is much interesting and good to read.

I have become really lazy and not doing much work at home. No reading and not experimenting anything. Having some issues related which will be sorted out soon.

Finally I reinstalled my mac and installed all software fresh again with new version. This time I installed boot camp and installed Windows XP and it works great. I was happy with parallels and performance wise it was bit dragging. Will update something new in upcoming post.

Its good to see around 10 plugins being actively developed for the plugin competition. There are some great ones cannot wait till end of this month. Don’t know who is gonna win the ipod I sponsored for the competition.
