over 200,000 hits from the same IP in the space of a few hours this afternoon/evening :-(

Was getting 508 resource limit errors

Tried blocking in IP blocker and with htaccess but still no joy.

Temporarily taken the site offline but it's still getting hit at a rate of 20+ hits a second.

Oh what fun :-(

Pagerank button removed from Google Toolbar :-(

OK, so we know the actual PageRank button hasn't meant anything for a long time, but the PageRank button on the Google Toolbar in IE was the best thing about it.

Only real reason I continued using the toolbar was because you could use the PageRank button to check the cache of the page and see similar sites.

looks like I'm going to have to create a bookmarket for it instead now :-(

Google My Business tools, tips & tricks

Finally got around to starting to tidy up my Google My Business tools this morning.

They were all a bit of a mess, scattered about on various sites so I have decided to put them all on one page.

Still got a few to add, but will hopefully get those included on the page this afternoon.

Coloured Heads or Letters of reviewers, what's the difference?

I've noticed recently a number of reviews from Coloured Heads rather than Letters (see image)

The colored heads only seem to have started recently, would these be reviews from people via a Google Account and not via a Google+ account?

They can be either. Go to a businesses' plus page, scroll down to their reviews, and click a few. All reviews before April 4th will take you to a Google+ profile for an individual if you click on them from a businesses' review section on plus.google.com
http://searchengineland.com/google-accounts-no-longer-required-leaving-local-reviews-google-246529

For newer reviews though, you'll notice some just take you to a page like this:
https://www.google.com/maps/contrib/112260052673405789029/reviews/@45.5859206,-122.741414,15z/data=!4m3!8m2!3m1!1e1

I assume those are the people with a gmail account or something, but no plus account. I noticed some like that both with heads and without. It depends if someone has a profile image associated with their plus account (if they had one) or with their gmail or whatever. Presence or absence of heads doesn't tell you anything about where they actually had an account when they left a review.

+Prue Stopford under the circumstances, I wouldn't really say funny, amazing coincidence though.

My picture doesn't give it much justice, looks more like keanu reeves.

I dare say some Photoshop experts will come up with some great versions though.

Car park itself is fine with fully tarmacked surface, nicely marked spaces and plenty of room to manoeuvre. What lets Shipston Telegraph St Car Park down though is the ticket machines. They are often out of order and do not return your money when not giving tickets.

One of the best chippies I've been to. Always seems to be busy which means the food hasn't been laying in the warmers for any length of time, nice white fish and the batter is always lovely and crisp. Also do kebabs southern fried chicken and burgers. The daily specials are a great price for what you get; chips, mini-fish, small sausage and choice of beans, peas or curry sauce. Don't make the mistake of thinking you need to order a bit extra as the portion sizes are amazing.

Lovely little traditional pet shop with a great range of small little pet gifts, treats, accessories, blankets, beds, etc. Nice to just browse around in and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

Always clean and tidy, with very friendly and helpful staff. Seldom have to queue too long as staff often stop what they are doing and open up extra teller windows when required. The little side offices have always been tidy when I have needed them and specialist come from the bigger branches for meetings in Shipston which saves you having to travel to them.
