Misinterpreting Matt Cutts – All Guest Blogging is Not Dead.

Urgh. I knew as soon as Matt Cutts launched that blog post (the decay and fall of guest blogging for SEO) that the floodgates would open and there would follow a shit storm of other blog posts declaring that guest…

Flappy Bird: 60 Points and I Still Can’t Bring Myself to Retire

An influx of images on my Facebook Timeline started it. Several of my friends were sharing screenshots of very low scores (less than 10) and “Game Over” scrawled over the top of a very Mario-esque background. “What’s this?” I found…

The ASA Takes Action Against 1&1 Internet

I’ve made my feelings about 1&1 Internet very clear in the past. In my opinion, the company uses some misleading advertising tactics. I complained to the ASA about 1&1′s “SEO tools” ad. I wasn’t the only one either. Another complainant approached…

Coffee Machine Love.

I drink a lot of coffee. I did consider trying to give it up a couple of years back… but half way through my first day of “quitting” I got a headache and decided giving up was a silly thing…

Christmas 2013 Ads – My Favourites of the Festive Season

I’m a sucker for Christmas TV ads. I don’t even care that their overpriced production is designed to get people talking and buying. I love them. And here’s my favourite TV ads of Christmas 2013. 1. The Lidl Christmas 2013…
