WordPress Android App

WordPress App for Android – Thoughts

Android’s WordPress App may be light on the features, dull and not overly exciting, but it does the job. Quite how well it does the job will only be truly apparent after I hit the publish button at the end of this post!

WordPress App for Android – What’s missing?

Straight away, we notice the lack of 1 touch buttons to insert H2 tags, most of the nice plugin functionality for SEO stuff and no functionality to upload media from the phone into the post. Makes live blogging a bit of a chore! Still, it’s getting there!

Pumpt – Sony Ericsson’s viral idea using Twitter to inflate Spacehoppers

PUMPT! Quite a few people will have noticed the #pumpt hashtag begin to trend on Twitter earlier on today. Links to a webcam in a warehouse in South London began circulating, and suddenly everyone was watching SpaceHoppers inflate! The premise was simple:

  • Tweet using #pumpt
  • Watch spacehopper get inflated for a random number of seconds
  • See your message on the big screen in the background

A video explaining the pumpt concept is below

Bolivian SEO

Bolivian SEO is an ongoing office joke between myself and my (strangely) Bolivian colleague. Although a paid search monkey himself, and not quite as skilled in the art of organic search, he shows some promise and has often threatened to start his own Bolivian SEO Agency.

So, my good friend, consider this a heads up for when you do finally get round to starting up Bolivian SEO dot com, or whatever, I’m already in there ahead of you, by a long shot, and will be stealing all of your business!

Bolivian SEO? HAH!

SEO Spam – Name & Shame

Today, I found the following in my comments queue:

Many firms charge top dollar in order to produceresults that their clients can be satisfied with. SEO is a very complicated practice of using key wordsrelated to a particular subject or topic that a business orindividual covers. These key words can be found embeddedinto the meta tags of the website. There are many packages available through SEO consultants and Internet Marketing specialists that can be tailor made to suit your requirements…..

Not only was it attempting to link back to use[dash]seo[dot]co[dot]uk but it was also placed on a completely irrelevant post, on the Remembrance Day 2009 Logos.

These jokers advertise “Guaranteed Ranking” with a small “TC Apply” caveat in a nice star shaped “web-two-point-oh-arific” button and list, amongst other items, “Reciprocal links” as one of their “Advanced Bundle” features, as well as “Customized Monthy (sic) Reports” as a “Premium Bundle” feature. You openly advertise that you won’t provide reports on your performance unless clients pay a premium fee? Allow me to refer back and repeat myself, bunch… of… jokers.
