We are in 2015 and airplanes still don't have a streaming camera from the cockpit nor a remote unlocking system that could be activated from the control tower.

So much for security

Pearls of SEO advice from a free website hosting that relies heavily on Ajax:

"Google and the other search engines crawl your website using the text. They crawl text. That is why you need to have as much of it as possible on your website."

"The more links pointing at you’re the higher your chances of getting indexed faster. Links from high ranking websites, or more important websites (aka – websites with a high page rank) are better and more meaningful than links from link farms or websites of low importance (meaning – websites with a low or no page rank)."

"These days it is understood that the best type of website architecture is a flat architecture. By creating a flat architecture you are endeavoring that each page on your website can be reached with a minimum amount of clicks"

"Get listed in as many directories as possible. The more traffic a directory has the better."

I can think on one or two ways these could go wrong very quickly

What I see is, almost everyone in the world drinks crappy mass-market beers. Happy to see that the Irish, at least, like to drink the good stuff!

Often webmasters ask different things to Google and then assume they both mean the same thing. I think now there is some confusion between real-time assessment of Panda signals and the push of new data/version of Panda.

My 2 cents on this is: Panda changes with new algorithm data is not the same as real time assessment of Panda signals already in the algorithm.

Story

I love the areas of Search, Web Usability, UX and Design. From March 2006 to September 2011 I worked for Google, as an Analyst in the Webspam team where everyday I dealt with spam and attempts of manipulation in the organic search results.

In September 2011 I left Google and Co-Founded Engeeno with another ex-Googler from the Search Quality team. Today we focus on Search Performance, Usability and helping move the web forward.

Went here for dinner with wife and children. The space is awesomely decorated and the ambient is leaning towards formal. Food is good quality but doesn't wow you. A bit pricey as most high-tier restaurants.

Very good Italian canteen. Small family place with a very simple but complete menu. The authentic Italian touch is everywhere, we were even forbidden to seat at a specific table that seems to be always reserved for a house client.

A bit pricey, but overall very good quality food. The Argentinean barbecue steak is awesome and the empanadas too, but not enough to wow you. The esplanade is a must on a sunny day, although the view is just to the street.

Great seafood restaurant. A bit more informal and relaxed than the other options within the area, but the food is as awesome. The staff is very friendly and of great help when choosing portions. Recommend the "Moqueca de Frutos do Mar" (Seafood stew)

Excellent Italian food. One of the best Italian restaurants in the area. Portions are extremely well served and half a portion is usually enough for 2.
