Keyword Research Tools (part 1) - Keyword Research Data from the Engines
The search engines provide a number of tools that can help you with keyword research. Many of these are not designed specifically for that purpose, but they can be used to obtain interesting keyword research information if they are used in the right manner.
The Art of SEO : Traditional Approaches: Domain Expertise, Site Content Analysis
One of the smartest things you can do when initially conducting keyword research is to use automated tools to brainstorm original ideas with the participants in the business. This can be surprisingly effective for coming up with numerous critical keywords.
The Art of SEO : The Theory Behind Keyword Research
Keyword research is one of the most important, valuable, and high-return activities in the search engine marketing field. Through the detective work of dissecting your market’s keyword demand, you learn not only which terms and phrases to target with SEO, but also more about your customers as a whole.
jQuery 1.3 : Headline rotator (part 7)
Before we put away our headline rotator example, let's give it a finishing touch, by making the headline text appear to fade in from the bottom of its container. The effect will be a gradient fade, appearing as if the text is opaque at the top of the effect area and transparent at the bottom.
jQuery 1.3 : Headline rotator (part 6)
The news feed that we've been using for our example is a local file, but we might want to retrieve a feed from another site altogether. As we saw in Chapter 6, AJAX requests cannot, as a rule, be made to a different site than the one hosting the page being viewed.
jQuery 1.3 : Headline rotator (part 5) - Pause on hover
Even though the headline rotator is now fully functioning, there is one significant usability issue that we should address—a headline might scroll out of the viewable area before a user is able to click on one of its links
jQuery 1.3 : Headline rotator (part 4) - The headline rotate function
Now we're ready to rotate the headlines, dates, and summaries. We'll define a function for this task so that we can easily repeat the action each time we need it.
jQuery 1.3 : Headline rotator (part 3) - Setting up the rotator
Since the visible news item will change over time, we'll need a way to easily keep track of which items are visible and where they are. First, we'll set two variables, one for the currently visible headline and one for the headline that has just scrolled out of view. Initially, both values will be 0.
jQuery 1.3 : Headline rotator (part 2) - Retrieving the feed
This method, as we have seen before, allows us to operate on content from a remote source by using a success handler. The content of the feed is passed to this handler as an XML structure. We can then use jQuery's selector engine to work with this data.
jQuery 1.3 : Headline rotator (part1) - Setting up the page
At its most basic level, this feature is not very difficult to implement. But as we will soon see, making it production-ready requires a bit of finesse.
Benchmarking Current Rankingstages of SEO
The most fundamental objective of any SEO project should be to drive the bottom line. For a business this means delivering more revenue with favorable ROI. As a predecessor to determining the level of ROI impact, the SEO practitioner must focus on increasing the volume of relevant traffic to the site.
First Stages of SEO : Benchmarking Current Rankings
People really love to check their search rankings. Many companies want to use this as a measurement of SEO progress over time, but it is a bit problematic for a variety of reasons.
First Stages of SEO : Benchmarking Current Indexing Status
The search engines have an enormous task—that of indexing the world’s online content; well, more or less. The reality is that they try hard to discover all of it, but they do not choose to include all of it in their index.
First Stages of SEO : Assessing Historical Progress
Measuring the results of SEO changes can be challenging, partly because there are so many moving parts and partly because months can elapse between when changes are made to a site and when results are seen in search rankings and traffic
First Stages of SEO : Determining Top Competitors
Understanding the competition should be a key component of planning your SEO. The first step is to understand who your competitors in the search results really are. It can often be small players who give you a run for your money.
Relevant IAM Standards and Protocols for Cloud Services (part 2)
OAuth is an emerging authentication standard that allows consumers to share their private resources (e.g., photos, videos, contact lists, bank accounts) stored on one CSP with another CSP without having to disclose the authentication information (e.g., username and password)
Relevant IAM Standards and Protocols for Cloud Services (part 1)
The following IAM standards and specifications will help organizations implement effective and efficient user access management practices and processes in the cloud. These sections are ordered by four major challenges in user and access management faced by cloud users
Identity and Access Management : IAM Architecture and Practice
One critical challenge of IAM concerns managing access for diverse user populations (employees, contractors, partners, etc.) accessing internal and externally hosted services. IT is constantly challenged to rapidly provision appropriate access to the users whose roles and responsibilities often change for business reasons.
Identity and Access Management : Why IAM?
In addition to improving operational efficiencies and effective compliance management, IAM can enable new IT delivery and deployment models (i.e., cloud services). For example, federated identity, a key IAM component, enables the linking and portability of identity information across trust boundaries
Identity and Access Management : Trust Boundaries and IAM
In a typical organization where applications are deployed within the organization’s perimeter the “trust boundary” is mostly static and is monitored and controlled by the IT department. In that traditional model, the trust boundary encompasses the network, systems, and applications hosted in a private data center managed by the IT department (sometimes third-party providers under IT supervision).
Parallel Programming with Microsoft .Net : Parallel Tasks - The Default Task Scheduler
All parallel libraries rely on a scheduler to organize and order the execution of tasks and threads, and TPL is no exception. This section is a behind-the-scenes look at the .NET Framework 4 implementation of task scheduling.
Parallel Programming with Microsoft .Net : Parallel Tasks - Design Notes
The task will not migrate among threads at run time. This is a useful guarantee because it lets you use thread-affine abstractions, such as the Microsoft Windows® operating system’s critical sections, without having to worry, for example, that the Monitor.Enter function will be executed in a different thread than the Monitor.Exit function.
Parallel Programming with Microsoft .Net : Parallel Tasks - Anti-Patterns
In C#, a closure can be created with a lambda expression in the form args => body that represents an unnamed (anonymous) delegate. A unique feature of closures is that they may refer to variables defined outside their lexical scope, such as local variables that were declared in a scope that contains the closure.
Parallel Programming with Microsoft .Net : Parallel Tasks - Variations (part 2)
The Task class includes a method named Task.WaitAll that allows you to wait for a set of tasks to complete. However, you can also wait for the first task to complete by calling the Task.WaitAny method.
Parallel Programming with Microsoft .Net : Parallel Tasks - Variations (part 1)
In .NET, a cancellation request does not forcibly end a task. Instead, tasks use a cooperative cancellation model. This means that a running task must poll for the existence of a cancellation request at appropriate intervals and then shut itself down by calling back into the library.
Parallel Programming with Microsoft .Net : Parallel Tasks - An Example
An example of task parallelism is an image processing application where images are created with layers. Separate images from different sources are processed independently and then combined with a process known as alpha blending. This process superimposes semitransparent layers to form a single image.
Parallel Programming with Microsoft .Net : Parallel Tasks - The Basics
Each task is a sequential operation; however, tasks can often run in parallel. In .NET, a task is also an object with properties and methods of its own. Here’s some sequential code.
jQuery 1.3 : The jQuery UI plugin library
While the Form plugin does one thing, and does it very well, jQuery UI does a wide variety of things (and does them well). In fact, jQuery UI is not so much a plugin, but rather a whole library of plugins.
jQuery 1.3 : The Form plugin
The Form plugin is a terrific example of a script that makes a difficult, complex task dead simple. The plugin file, along with detailed documentation, is available at http://malsup/com/jquery/form/.
jQuery 1.3 : How to use a plugin
Many plugins have built-in flexibility as well, providing a number of optional parameters that we can set to modify their behavior. We can customize their operation as much as needed, typically by including a map as the method's argument
