The Google Dance

Since around the middle of Oct, Google has been making some major updates to their algorithm causing a lot of sites to drop in the indexes. You may have noticed some of your keyword rankings returning higher or lower because of it. Most sites playing by the rules will not be extremely affected. Coming right before the holiday season again, it appears their changes are geared for their advertisers.

Hang in there and make sure you don't have anything in your pages that could get you a lower ranking. It's not over yet so unless you've dropped down or out of the top thirty, don't make any drastic changes yet.

Not All Templates Are Created Equal

Please make sure you check the list of sources that come with each template when you preview it. Not all templates include a Flash file and templates that look similar may be very different. Lower priced templates usually do not include Flash animation.

Before you order, double check the template number and price of the template you have placed in the shopping cart. The templates on this site are extremely well designed and include a list of the editable files in the list of sources available.

Easy Update

Anyone who has ever built and maintained a site can tell you it's hard work but you can automate the process easily with SSI. Server side includes can be used on any platform thru SSI, ASP or PHP code. You create your header, footer or side menu of information or navigational elements that you want included in multiple pages, then you strip out the HTML, head and body tags of the include and save it as a regular page. On each page of your site that want to include the item, you add a piece of code that displays it in the page. The next time you need to update all pages, you just change one file, publish the changes to that one file and it is automatically updated across all pages in the site that have the include code in them. One change to one file, update hundreds of pages simultaneously. You don't have to open and edit all pages that need to change, just one file changes all of them! The piece of code that displays your include is different for SSI, ASP and PHP so you need to Google it to find the right one for your platform.
