    When you perform a search at Google, and you have a set of search results in front of you, how do you decide what to click upon? How do you judge the page titles, the snippets, and the URLs that you see. How does Google decide what to show you? A little more than a [...]

    The thing that breaks us

    It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.

    — Lou Holtz (retired American football coach, author, and motivational speaker)

    I can’t stop thinking about this quote ever since I saw it on Quote Vadis. At some point over the last three or four years, life became pretty heavy. The pressures of two kids, a career, and a life that’s just public enough to invite some nastiness every once in a while can really wear you down.

    So it’s easy to fix your eyes on the...

    Training in Winter

    Feb 25, 2013

    Some of you may remember that I have started training parkour some time ago. It made me not only 200% healthier over the recent years (I feel 10 years younger by now) it also inspired me in other areas of life.

    I've already coined a new term for a positive SEO technique that I call "Google Parkour" which basically means helping your "competitors" by linking out to them and ultimately getting traffic from them. It doesn't work completely as imagined but it works to some extent. It works...

    Will Google Penalize Chromebooks, Google Analytics, AdWords & Google+ For Using Advertorials?

    Feb 23, 2013
    A day after warning publishers against advertorials, will Google’s search team now have to penalize parts of its own company for running advertorials? Perhaps, and if so, it wouldn’t be the first time. It’s also another absurd chapter in Google’s war on paid links. Google Says: Advertorials, Beware!

    After news came out yesterday that Google had apparently penalized Interflora for running advertorials — and also reduced the PageRank values of many UK newspapers that carried these — Google...

    Don’t let user experience design methods die

    Des Traynor did a great interview with Ryan Singer, Product Manager at 37signals. I’m a huge fan of Ryan’s, and I agree with most of what he says in the interview. But there’s one part I’d like to challenge a bit.

    Answering the question “Did you ever consider techniques like personas or user journeys, or any of those UX design methods?” Ryan says, “That stuff is all terrible”. He then obliterates the use of personas before going into a bit more detail a couple of questions later:
