I've had background classes in HTML/CSS/PHP/Java, however I have since been pursuing the art of programming as a side hobby to my current job; a US Marine.

Lone Tree Productions is my web service where I showcase everything that I have done so far. As of June 2011, it is still in the works of becoming fully operational.

comment Pros and Cons of Buying Common Website Mispellings
I think that you only answered one aspect of clifgray's question. Any input on visitors being confused on the name? Seems opinionated, but experience is experience.

comment Does having a Google “stop word” in a domain name have less SEO benefit than not having it?
I would say about.com is fairly high in the SERPs... which have zero non-stop words in the domain name.

comment Do extra words in url affect SEO?
Exactly, like paintball.com/guns/gun-model or cars.com/pontiac/grand-am. Definitely stay away from generic terms like 'content', 'node', 'pages', 'products', 'solutions', etc...

comment Flat vs. Hierarchical Tree Structure
Yes and no... it's best to keep in mind what someone would logically type into a search engine to get to your content, then tailor the URL to come close to it. So, for healthcare plans, having /solutions/healthcare/products/[this plan] - there's two terms which have no bearing to the content on that page and THAT'S when you lose semantic value.

comment Confirm if trailing slash is acceptable for a file, rather than a directory
As for your last question, the /public_html/ folder in your server is common. Imagine the directory /public_html/ as being a sort of root. It's like the C:/ drive on your computer, but one step above that. As far as your website is concerned, everything is contained inside of /public_html/, so there's no point to reference it. Anything above or outside of your /public_html/ folder is all server-side files (or FTP). I would caution against deleting any folders above /public_html/ as it won't harm you and it might be there for an important reason.

comment Confirm if trailing slash is acceptable for a file, rather than a directory
Canonical names are simply to aid in SEO and for the users. The trailing slash won't ever be on a file because that would make the file extension different (e.g. .txt/, .html/, .aspx/) and the browser (and server) won't know what to do with it. However, the canonical name itself may contain that trailing slash. To make it easier for users and more confusing for developers (the common trend), the trailing slash can be used for a myriad of purposes - one being for folders. You should put the canonical meta tag in your HTML documents for SEO (to not link to duplicate content). [Continued...]
