Social Bookmark Chicklet Creator
Social bookmarking has quickly become
a popular way for frequent internet users
to share their favorite websites with the
public. Having a website added to a bookmark
directory can increase traffic significantly.
Bookmark chicklets are a newer creation
that help remind those viewing a website
to add it to the social bookmarking directories.
It makes the bookmarking process easier
for who have found a website that is a good
source of information or services. Another
of the tool is that the website description
that goes into the bookmark is written into
the script, allowing creators of the chicklet
to choose how their website will be described
in the directory.

to Convert RSS to HTML
Many webmasters have realized the benefit
of using RSS to dynamically update websites.
This means that the website content automatically
changes when the RSS feed is updated. This
allows for webmasters to serve dynamic content
or a mixture of static and dynamic content
on their website.

Credibility online is becoming more
and more of an issue. Anyone can have a
blog or post to a forum and anyone can edit
wiki entries. Web surfers are beginning
to comprehend that just because it is in
print does not necessarily mean that it
is true. In fact, in today's online world,
the collective truth might be the closest
thing we can get to the real truth. Peer
policing and social bookmarking have become
common in the online world.
Human nature invariably prompts a level
of trust;if it is written, it must be true.
We live in a generation where we expect
authors, editors and publishers that are
qualified to write on various topics. What
qualifications are required to post a blog,
write an online article, or edit a wiki?
Some web surfers may find the answer startling:

07/10/2006 iTunes New
Apple launched a revised set of categories
for podcasts listed in the iTunes Music
Most of the old categories and subcategories
are now automatically mapped to corresponding
ones within the new system. For example,
if your podcast was listed under "Arts &
Entertainment > Photography", it will
now appear under "Arts> Visual Arts."
However, 3 categories have been removed
and do not have a similar replacement: "International",
"Talk Radio", and "Public Radio". Those
categories overlapped with others in the
old system, making some podcasts difficult
to find. If one of these categories is listed
as the first subject in your podcast feed,
that category information will be ignored
and the second category will be used to
determine eligibility and placement in that
Changes to your categories may take 1-2
weeks from the time you edit your feed,
so please review and add new category data
as soon as possible to ensure your podcast
is listed appropriately. New categories
and subcategories that did not exist in
the old browse structure will appear as
podcasts are mapped to them.
