Geeks With Blogs
urig Tidbits from a .net life

I've finally gotten around for some long delayed blog maintenance. Here are some nice tweaks that you too can employ:

  1. I've added a button linking to my LinkedIn profile. This is one of Guy Kawaski's Ten Ways to Use LinkedIn. LinkedIn have a wide selection of customized buttons available. If you want one, sign in, click "My Profile", click "Edit my Public Profile" and there find the link to "Promote your profile with customized buttons".

    On a side note, I would recommend that you set "Your Public Profile URL" first. That would give you a friendly URL that goes directly to your public profile. Friendly not only means easier for users to type-in but also for search engines to index.

  2. I've customized Snap Preview Anywhere to be less conspicuous for my web readers. That means setting the color scheme to match that of the blog, having it only preview external links and making it only pop  out when you hover over one of the small bubble icons next to a link. I hope this keeps it useful and at the same time unobtrusive. (If you feel different - please let me know).

  3. I've properly set the Title, Description and also the meta keywords and description. This should help both human and computer readers take an accurate first impression of what the blog is about and whether it's worth their time.

Further improvements to follow!
