Hello, I am an architect from The Netherlands, or better known as "Holland". My knowledge of programming is very tiny and limited only to digital interfaces we interact with as humans or more simply as living mammals.

However, recently I have found out that skilled programming techniques not only are helpful in areas of websites, but also in game design, game interiors, realworld architecture, urbanism, flow controll of hydrolics, balloon flights... and even in designing public parks that interact with humans! The unique outcomes of such projects fascinates me daily.

Feel free to contact me for fun/brainstorms/ideas/projects.

comment Which of these 3 URL-Rewritings are better SEO friendly URLs?
@seriocomic @Erik @aji @sisi, Actually, i'm currently using this: website.com/en/tomato-just-about-tomatos where the first word before the - is the file name and the rest -just-about-tomatos optional description. Actually any string after /tomato-..... the link will load the correct page. How do you like that? See the new option E in my question!

comment Which of these 3 URL-Rewritings are better SEO friendly URLs?
@aji, +1 for reading my mind on that lang.website.com/etc, BUT I did not write down this option since I dont know how to make this possible via htaccess / my pesk account with shared hosting... Though this question is just about which method would be best, it would be realllly cool if you woule suggest how to make this happen. Thanks anyways for your suggestion!

+1 for sharing your thoughts, thanks very much. I think you are right. sounds logical... I fully agree that the linktext should be short two, three words maximum. Question: The anchor text in a link is very important for SEO what do you mean by anchor text? the link test which is >goed in here</a> ?

+1 for that little clearification. Besides dashes - what other optione are there? Are + better than dashes? urlencode function of PHP uses them by default it seems... what do you recommend on this issue? Thanks very much

reconsidered your suggestion as the best answer, indeed! One final question: would it be allright to have the last part ( which can really be anything) textual wordst with spaces? <a href="/en/tomato/just about tomatos">....</a> or should absolutely spaces be avoided and replaced with dashes - ?

comment Why aren't we supposed to use <table> in a design?
Spot on John! I will never understand why and how I managed to use TABLEs as layout during 1996 ~ 2006... and now that I use DIV instead its an entire different (better) experience altogether! Wish I had read your answer back in 1996 :)

comment Is my Document Type Definition Still Up to Date?
@All dont want to start a miniwar folks, but just want to say that that being a person who does things out of guts/love and thus sometimes irrationally, I have bit fallen in love with the clean hip minimalistic-almost Bhuddism-sized doctype suggested: <!doctype html> ... its beautiful! I love it! +1 for all those links in and underneath this answer!! awesome novel reading materials.

comment Does Google rate the webpage by amount of visits?
Traffic is not an indicator of content quality or relevance. is true for many many other spectra of life too, like television broadcasting/viewers statistics, visitors to architecturally recognised buildings, neighbourhood cooking workshops, sporting events and other cultural activities... Albeit that quality measurement is also a subjective measurement, too.

comment SEO and browser compatibility differences for headings <H1> though <H9>

comment New META TAGS with positive effects for seo ranking in 2011 and beyond
@Indian, you are specifically talking about original-source? or syndication-source? or both? PS where you found out that only news-generating websites should use original-source? i thought i read that any original content generation "NEW" stuff propagating site that potentially is harvested, coudl/might/should use original-source to protect its intellectual properties by the proof of being the first of that news/invention/article/story.

comment SEO and browser compatibility differences for headings <H1> though <H9>
I even see important QUOTES from famous artists, scientists etc as heading7. imagine a page opens my h1 would be the factual page title more or less, then subtitle h2 (longer text) h3 (even longer introduction into the page) then the sections h4 etc. Now, the QUOTES on the top of the page are huge but less important than say h3, and no search engine would ever understand their meaning anyway, so to give them h3 doesnt make sense. They are big and bold and italic, but earn a h7 to my viewpoint. Also for highlighting text that is isolated and captures the eyes i use h8 and h9. Your opinion?

comment Which is best for PageRank? When multi-Aliases point to same server, with multi-language folders
+1 on both comment and answer Johnathan. Although John is right too (seems from the Wikipage) the mathematical fact remains that the NUMBER of inbound links to (any) given page rises when variations (even for language differences????) are "thrown into one heap". That does give a penalty for userfriendlyness though, Jonathan, as a Japanese user searching in Japanese text for French Kiss Tips then would expect to arrive on the Japanese version of that page, but instead he(more likely she) is directed to the original French page, from where then she needs to navigate to japanese version... hmmm

comment SEO and browser compatibility differences for headings <H1> though <H9>
Great John. That is what i tought too on 2)! 1)=HTML4... boy is that a long time ago! probably a decade ago, and HTML5 is not even fully supported everywhere. Isn't that a bit slow in the internet age? Oh well. I geuesse im the only one in need of h7 ~ h9 to broaden the entire spectrum of importances of headings, breadcrums, sections, and above all, i miss matured tags to highlight stuff. sometimes i use <strong> sometimes <em> but i haven't known a better highlighter than just h7 ~ h9 as its semantics comes closest to a heading.
