That is the ultimate question addressed in this video. Matt Cutts from Google has released a new Webmaster Help video which discusses the issue of duplicate content. This one is about duplicate content and how it relates to legal content, such as disclaimers and/or a website’s terms and conditions.
Today, February 27, 2012, LinkedIn announced on their blog that they have finally launched a “Follow Company” button. Companies can now add the button to their websites, making it easy for users to follow a company profile straight from the company’s webpage.
With over 2 million companies in the LinkedIn network, LinkedIn expects major brands like American Express, AT&T, Starbucks, Sony, Rypple, DonorsChoose, Kiva to add the buttons to their website shortly. Rumor has it that this new button marks the first phase of a new LinkedIn follower strategy that will unveil soon. Hopefully we will not have to wait long for the new changes as long as companies have been waiting for a follow button.
On November 30th, 2011, Jean Marie Simonet wrote on the Joomla community blog:
“We plan to release Version 2.5 beta on or before December 20th.”
The upcoming non-beta release is scheduled to be released in January of 2012, but it looks like Joomla addicts will be able to get a taste of the new 2.5 version of the popular CMS.
The new features have not been announced, but Jean writes:
“To make this schedule, we have until December 12th to propose and test new features. “
Does this mean the developers are keeping a lid on the new enhancements (other than improved search) because they are not ready? Or are they not exactly sure what addition will be made?

Think you’re ready for Joomla 2.5? Make sure you’re prepared!

It takes that much time to turn your computer chair around and stand up.
Even though this information speaks volumes about the patience humans have with computers, the simple fact remains that 3 seconds or hopefully less is the standard that webmasters have to adhere to when it comes to designing web pages.
Have no fear! There are some techniques you can implement that will help speed up your pages’ loading time and hopefully keep your pages well below the 3 second loading time. Continue reading
