I am strongly tempted to take this article, translate it into Japanese, and pass it around the office, because what works in Columbus, Ohio is also very true for life in Central Japan. Even Nagoya is more of a Detroit than it is a Silicon Valley. (Incidentally: nobody here knows what Craigslist is, either. Most don’t even know Mixi, which is Myspace for Japan.)
I have one of my book length pieces in the works on how uISVs, like startups, can milk web apps for everything they’re worth. My mental title for it is “The Beauty of Being Small”. I suppose I should wait until I’ve actually got a web app to be giving advice about how to make web apps, though.
I renamed my Free Resources page, which is the #3 most popular page on my site, to Printable Bingo Cards, which both more accurately describes what is available there and is a much better title for SEO purposes. This required some slicing and dicing in all of my HTML files because that is a link which appears in my navigation bar. Luckily, bash was adequate for the task as always.
This was posted on May 30th, 2007, Japan time. If it is after June 5th where you are, I predict that I’m pretty high on Google for the search arbitrary organic search query. I know this mostly by construction — I looked at the results before writing this post, observed that the competition is very weak for that query, used those words in my title, and will easily leapfrog over the weak competition.
