New android-app:// referrer

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 18:49:50 +0000

A few days ago, I noticed a new referrer to cleverhack, android-app://com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox Glancing at the user log, it seems that it’s a referrer from a Google search box within an Android OS app. Here are some observations about the android-app referrer via Webmaster World, and here’s the official Android developer documentation for search. Have you seen the android-app [...]



Google Concert Tour Info

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 17:47:09 +0000

Hot damn, Google now has concert tour information for your favorite acts. The tour info appears to be geo-located and apparently works whether you are logged into your Google account or not. As I write this, all of these are upcoming touring acts for the Philadelphia, PA area. Sigur Ros Henry Rollins So I wonder how [...]



Twitter for iPhone User Agent

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 15:36:49 +0000

Earlier this week, I had a cleverhack visitor who clicked on the URL in my Twitter bio. Since they were using the Twitter for iPhone app, and the app does not open a mobile Web browser, a unique Twitter for iPhone user agent showed in the visitor logs. Twitter for iPhone User Agent Netscape 5.0 Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; [...]



Check My IP Address On Google

Mon, 16 May 2016 16:49:41 +0000

This is a cool Google feature. If you type in “Check My IP” into Google, Google will return your device’s current public IP address. (I tested this on my laptop connected to wifi and my iPhone connected to AT&T.) This is a great tip for those occasions when you need to troubleshoot a network connectivity issue. PS [...]



Questionable Twitter Growth Hacks

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 12:00:58 +0000

For the past few weeks, I’ve been on the receiving end of list notifications that look like the following. Seeing a list notification is nothing new, but this *cough* “Twitter growth strategy” *cough* appears to be awfully automated. Up until a few weeks ago, I observed a different attention grabbing tactic where I would initially [...]



Who Is A Sales Engineer?

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 16:18:56 +0000

If you’ve ever participated in a sales deal for a hardware or software — or other technology — product, you’ve probably been introduced to a Sales Engineer (sometimes called a Presales or Solutions Consultant). But who are they? Sales Engineers are the front-facing technical experts for a product or a solution. She or he will possess [...]



Now this is a ridiculous referer domain

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 00:28:54 +0000

For those of us who were curious, the maximum length of a domain name can be 63 characters. An enterprising spammer used about 57 of them (I could be wrong, I stopped counting) for his URL referer in the screenshot below. In case you were wondering about long domain name efficacy for SEO, Moz advises to [...]



Add a pink beating heart to your Gmail subject lines

Sun, 21 Feb 2016 20:54:07 +0000

Earlier today, I peeked into my Gmail spam folder only to see an email message with what looked to be a gif in the subject line. I have seen a lot on the Internet, but a moving image in a subject line was a first. Upon closer examination of the email, it appears that the spammer [...]



Tweets can influence SERPs

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 21:02:51 +0000

Posted below are two screenshots for the first page SERP for Joy Larkin. (Heh, see what I did there?). First screenshot is when I haven’t tweeted in a while and the second screenshot is approximately 48 hours later after some tweet activity. My Twitter account does have my name on it. You can see that time [...]



Quick Twitter SEO Observation

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 03:42:33 +0000

Here’s a quick Twitter SEO observation. For the longest time, I had my about.me profile URL in my Twitter bio. It was ok (the analytics for the free version are less than optimal), so I decided to see if switching up the URL would improve SEO for Joy Larkin, as there are a few women [...]
