What are Backlinks?


Backlinks are inbound links that point towards your web site or a blog (aka inward links). These links are essential in regards to search engine optimization (SEO) simply due to the fact that the more links you have pointing to your site, the better the chances of your web pages making their way to the top of search engine results (SERP).

Every search engine such as Google, Bing and Yahoo use spiders which crawl your site and analyze the information and data on them. As they crawl your pages, they also include inbound links as an important factor in their algorithm.

The way search engines see it, the more the inbound links a site has, the more popular and valuable it must be to readers. Of course these links can also help boost traffic to your website by simply having your link spread around the web in more location.

Paid Web Servers Down


As a technology company we use our own web servers for big and critical systems and outsourced web servers for medium or small regional clients. 

Today our continuous improvement program gave us great B2B results already being implemented on Methark and its clients. This article is based on this report.

MOST PAID WEB SERVERS WILL FALL 
With free reliable web server services offering server-side scripts, ready to go web sites, PHP, SQL, WebMail and so on, plus the fever of social networks and blogs (more important than the official company website itself), most companies don't need a paid website plan anymore. 

Big data necessities is more affordable for medium and small business from public free tools and big endeavors goes with in-company direct backbone connection from private directed servers.

WEB SERVER COMPANIES MISTAKES
Even today, when we talk about Web Servers the image of huge lined boxes with led lights and wires flashes into our heads. Honestly? 

This is old design and a waste of money and resources since we can build a perfect server with up to one petabyte in a 6x4x0.7 inches box. All you need is great backbone connections and server administrators. 

We dealt off our contracts with all paid regional web server companies and our clients cost per benefit went up to +75% with great improvements and 99,9% uptime.

In fact, you can fit a web server offering millions of terabytes or even petabytes in a small, secure and air-conditioned room nowadays and also be energy and pollution green.

Why Web Design is dead?

My post referring; I quote "Web design is a dead profession, Web development is the cannon ball" received some good questions. But first, let's make one small introduction to our current global situation on this matter.

With *free social or professional pages (like this one), blogs and easy web-site creators like #wix, what we know as web designers has become the same thing to say digital designers (professionals that use design programs like #Gimp, #Fireworks, #Inkscape, #Corel, etc) to create images.
"Web Pages is turning to be more standardized for easy user and developer interaction."
In order of evolution, digital art creation it's becoming something made by web developers with our new #html5, #css3 and so on. IDEs (Integrated Development Environments) is offering easy to create amazing designed web applications and advanced personalized templates.

The result of all these variants gives digital designers two ways: Learn to code or offer its designs to the real world (witch is shrinking) or small jobs for the web (pictures, logos, banners).
"Today, the average of web developers to web designers employed is 10 to 2."
Now that we know where we are at, let's start:
  1. A Developer is a professional that creates codes from server side scripts to front end applications, templates and/or gadgets;
  2. A Designer is a professional that creates images to be used on real or digital purposes;
  3. There is more chance to a company contract a Marketing professional with design experience than a digital designer;
  4. This tendency is the natural response for years of programmers versus designers integration problems.
This change is not easy for neither since most programmers don't have the artistic creativity of a designer as most designers don't have the rational creativity of programmers.
"If you are a great Web Developer nowadays you must be proud because you have artistic and rational creativity."
* Free: Nothing is free.

12 Steps to save iPhone power


Step 1
Go to Settings > Privacy > Location services.

Here you’ll find a whole load of apps that are using GPS to update your location. It’s useful for something like Find my iPhone, but the chances are there are a whole load of other apps that don’t need it and are draining your battery.

Step 2
Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, and Calendars > Fetch New Data > Manually

At the moment, your iPhone is checking to see if you have new updates for mail, calendars, and contacts and it’s taking a toll on the battery.

Step 3
You would be surprised how many people don’t know about this. Double tap the main button then swipe up to close them down. It will save battery, but this is contingent on your use of Background App Refresh (Step 10).

If you’re never using them again, then delete them: Hold down till they wobble and press the cross.

Step 4
Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Toggle Reduce Motion on.

This is the feature that make it look like apps are floating above the background when you move the phone. It looks pretty, but it drains battery.

Step 5
Go to Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness > Tone it down a bit. You can also do this by flicking up from the bottom of the screen.

And while you’re at it, toggle off Auto-Brightness.

Step 6
If you’re not using internet and you’re in a low-coverage area with the phone dipping in and out of the signal, then swipe up to bring the control centre and put a stop to Wi-Fi and Data Services.

Step 7
Make sure you don’t use the cell network unless you have to.

DO NOT listen to people who say you should switch off Wi-Fi (swipe up to bring up the control centre and press the Wi-Fi button) when you’re not using it UNLESS you’ve fiddled with other settings or have also turned off cellular data — because apps and services will attempt to use your GPS signal in place of normal Wi-Fi.

Step 8
Go to Settings > iTunes and App store

Automatic downloads it’s a handy feature that allows purchases you’ve made elsewhere appear on your phone without having to update. But if you want to preserve your battery, better to have it off.

Step 9
Go to Settings > General > Spotlight Search

This is the index of the whole iPhone you get by swiping down from the middle of the home screen. Chances are you don’t regularly use it. So switch all off.

Step 10
You background app refresh is running?
Find this under Settings > General. You can switch it off for all services or just some of them.

Step 11
Airdrop is a new iOS-7 feature that lets users share documents and other info with other devices. If you leave it on, it’ll keep looking for devices to link with. Use the control centre to disable.

Step 12
If you have too many push notifications go to Settings > Notification Centre > Switch Show in Notification Centre Off for each app.

These are the pings you receive after getting a notification or an app update.

MIPS Oxford Hello World

Do you love or would like to learn Assembly? Here is your starting code:

MIPS

## Methark Technology - MIPS Example
## hello.asm
## Registers used
## $v0 - syscall parameter and return value.
## $a0 - syscall parameter-- the string to print.

.text

main:

la $a0, hello_msg
## load the addr of hello_msg into $a0.

li $v0, 4
## 4 is the print_string syscall.

syscall
## do the syscall (print the string).

li $v0, 10
## 10 is the exit syscall.
syscall
## do the syscall (close the program).

## Data for the program:
.data
hello_msg: .asciiz "Hello World\n"
## end hello.asm

Have attention with one image

Doesn't matter what you are posting bellow the image, users will look at it and raise the chance of engage your post.

The secret is to use a great title like "How To", a cool image of what you are talking about (on this case Pinterest) and a sort of character that will intrigue the user.

Color palette is to be used or your image will be confusing.

Your life for Science?


Russian next generation Soyuz


Russia has been working on a new spacecraft to get cosmonauts to the moon and Mars.

Now, the Russian Space Agency revealed images of the new, unnamed spacecraft, which has been under development for around a decade.

It looks remarkably similar to Orion – Nasa's new spaceship designed to carry humans to an asteroid, and eventually to Mars.

It is designed to replace Soyuz-TMA that carries astronauts and cosmonauts to the International Space Station.

RSC Energia says it will test it over the next few months, which the first unmanned orbital test flight of the new spacecraft scheduled in 2021.

Earlier this year, Russia announced plans to send manned flights to the moon by 2030 after reviving its lunar programme with unmanned spacecraft.
  
It was the first time Moscow had set a deadline for the space plans, hoping to recapture the early glory of the first space race, when they beat the U.S. at getting a man to orbit the earth.

Barack Obama previously wanted to get Americans onto Mars by 2030. 

A Roscosmos spokesman said at the time: 'Close to 2030, the plan is to move over to manned flights to the Moon.'

The agency also announced that it would continue to work with Nasa on the ISS until 2024, when it hopes to build its own orbital station.

It says the station would aim to provide Russia 'with guaranteed access to the cosmos'.

Russian government officials had indicated last year that they may end funding of the ISS in 2020, amid strained relations between the the U.S and Russia over the Ukraine sanctions row. 

Extensive cooperation in space between Washington and Moscow came under renewed pressure after the U.S banned high-tech exports to Russia.

But that proposal appears to have been rejected in favour of keeping it going for another four years, as Nasa had suggested. 

The space industry has been the root of fierce competition between Russia and the U.S dating back to the Cold War.

The U.S and the Soviet Union were locked in the so-called 'space race' for decades.
Russia's Yuri Gagarin was the first man in space in 1961 and Neil Armstrong of the United States was the first man on the Moon in 1969.

But with the Cold War over, competition gave way to cooperation. 

Russia's subsequently deorbited its own Mir space station in 2001 as Moscow sought to concentrate its resources on the ISS.

Aviation Drone Strike


If our new great public technology of drones is generating so many almost air traffic collision problems, there should be some law that states drones to use TCAS sort of automatic collision avoiding system.

One more thing to worry beside bird strike. Now we will have Drone Strike.

Operational Systems War

Before thinking about write this article I was happy with my Win7 for it's user friendly desktop, my GNU/Linux Mint 13 for development, Android for my Sony smart-phone and Apple's IOs for my tablet (or IPad).

For stranger it may seem, the comfort of having so many different resources was given just and only for all options and tools one of those could give exclusively on that platform.

Windows 10 Wave
Not blaming Microsoft, in fact they did what should be done to keep the competition for the market - with is to force the users around the globe to use just their products and services like Apple or Google on it's own way.

With a fair price you can buy a Microsoft's Smart-Phone or Tablet and it's bleak the future between Microsoft and Sony products with is pointing for a new generation of laptops, computers and game consoles.

The Big Picture
Let's see some charts and facts to get a grip of what was going on in July 2015 regarding those systems:



* Chart based on NetApplications via Wikipedia.

What we can see in this chart above is that Microsoft dominate the OS market but with Windows 10 and the probable expansion of Microsoft own devices and computers is a prediction that Google is about to do the same path inverted and also, a response to Apple.

Facts
All this unification of services and products and the not so far future of new computers and devices lead us to know that there is a silent war going on and we are the ones who will decide between the easy way (giving away our identity and privacy) or the hard way using alternative systems like GNU/Linux and perhaps, save something private.

Corporations all over the world are giving two years before thinking about implementing the new Windows 10 and Sony itself is discouraging it's users to update till further instructions.

Wikipedia's Depression

There is a lot of great articles Wikipedia can offer in many languages and it is without a doubt the biggest on it's market.

Even with reports along the time of errors, span and even censure; it's huge content kept Wikipedia as a must-have favorite for millions.
Yesterday I went to Wikipedia to ask for an update of a mistaken part of an article and this was what I saw covering the entire top of the page:
 Followed by this:
As a non-profit organization is their legitimate right to ask people for donations of course, but like this, is almost saying: - Hey, pay us or our service will give you adds or worst. Just a PayPal's donate button isn't enough?

Wrong Way of Business
By doing this Wikipedia is showing the world users that it's not a free encyclopedia but a poor business planned organization that even being known worldwide can't raise funds from companies. Instead, they are trying to apply the in-app-purchase politics.

What is the Problem?
Wikipedia's survive and is feed by the worldwide community with gives information, moderation and more.
With this wrong business step, most users will stop to contribute freely since the organization itself showed instability over it's proposition of free on-line materials or even, how far the service will survive as it is.
