SEO - Tracking Site Progress

There are only a few things you need to track in order to see how well your site are doing.

1. The number of other web sites linking to your web site - Backlink.

These links are called backlinks.  How to find backlinks to your site?  There is no need for you to search the web and go to some ads infected sites or download God-know what software that is to find out backlinks.  The best tool is Google Webmaster Tools and it's FREE.


2. The number of pages on your site that have been indexed by Google.

Simply Google for site:[your domain]

For example, site:www.smarv.com


3. The number of times someone uses Delicious to bookmark your site.

Simply search [your domain] on delicious.com.

For example, search smarv.com


4. The number of pages on your site that have been indexed by Yahoo/Bing.

Bing Webmaster Center


5. The number of page hits on your site - Website Traffic.

Website traffic is the end result you are aiming for.  The best tool is Google Analytics.  It can break down traffic by many categories including demographics, language, etc...  It also has in-page analytic allowing you to see how users navigate your site.

I found out the other simple tool, StatCounter.  It's simple to you and you can schedule simple reports sent to your email inbox.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)
