What are the minimum requirements to get this done? Once you have at least two servers behind a load-balancer, you can sequentially remove a server from the cluster, update it, and add it back to the cluster to complete the update (insofar as the visitor is concerned). What can we do to build applications that make this possible from the ...

I think the idea of a "separated" application that relies heavily on JavaScript/AJAX is going to get you into a lot of trouble. A few things off the top of my head: It's going to be bad for SEO since Google will have a hard time indexing anything. It's going to be hard to make it "bookmarkable" You'll have a hard time with mobile devices as many of them ...

First off, whether you go with an Asynchronous heavy website or not won't have much affect on your ability to build iPhone/Mobile and desktop apps because it has nothing to do with them. Either way you won't be able to reuse your code. Also, Asynchronous sites can be just as slow or slower than normal sites. Usually, that kind of functionality is added for ...

The easy answer is yes. if you have 2 domain names for the same thing the organic results might get "divided" between both sites. Like if they were competing for attention. As a rule of thumb it's always easier to market a single domain name. The problem with two is that organic links will be divided. some people will link to your marketing site, others ...

It's not a single page. (This should be obvious just from viewing source.) There are separate documents, like this one, being loaded via Ajax. In Firefox, open Firebug and enable the Net tab. When you click the navigation links, you'll be able to see the GET requests for them.

First, no offense if this answer is too obvious or basic. Your use of "separated" instead of terms like Ajax or jQuery makes me assume less experience with this topic. Of course i could be misreading the question, so my apologies if that's the case. Use both, but wisely Think of your choice of server-side or client-side tasks in terms of where and how a ...

I wouldn't call this a simple question! The answers to your many questions certainly aren't simple. Load sharing and replication between databases (the two are different) is a complex subject and probably couldn't be answered in a few paragraphs. However, let's see I can shed some light. Yes, multiple instances in setup 1 will work for mainly static ...

You can target HTML5 browsers and use local storage to store the data for offline use. These articles give pointers on how to synchronise the local and central storage. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1744522/best-way-to-synchronize-local-html5-db-websql-storage-sqlite-with-a-server-2 ...

http://code.google.com/p/google-refine/wiki/ClientSideArchitecture Google Refine's client-side is in HTML, CSS, and Javascript and uses jQuery and jQuery UI. It basically means to use HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, AJAX efficiently in the clients browser letting their computers take load off your server and process data faster.

I personally use a bit of both... I place all the images with a general purposes (things like : design, icons, site content, sprites, etc..) in a single directory. Then for everything related to a single "thing" on my website, by example a .jpg avatar related to a single user, I put that in a specific directory but inside of a centralized structure.. ...

Many people assume that you should only ever use one H1 on the page otherwise it dilutes the actual content of the page, this simply isn't true. A H1 Company name and then a H1 for the content is absolutely valid by all means. Google has the ability to work out which is the content of the page and what is not, such as headers and footers. If are still ...

The location of images has no effect on your rankings, it will use the URL of the page and not that of the server, otherwise those with Content Delivery Networks wouldn't use content delivery networks. The file name however does help a little. So rather than having product1-large.jpg You should use something like this: <img ...

I would suggest a solution similar to Amazon's affiliate tracking. Amazon uses a cookie to denote which affiliate referred the client to their site using a special token in the GET arguments. For example, you might have a redirect like: store1.com => acme.com/?ref=store1 This would create a cookie on the client's machine which would allow you to ...

In order to be able to re-use code you can always look at XSLT for the generation of landing pages and then have XML/JSON interfaces for AJAX (utilising the XML interface for the XSLT landing pages). You would normally allow the content and interaction to work on a RESTful interface with a /json/... and /xml/... prefix and host your main content, converted ...
