A suggestion for Tumblr: Try to figure out a way so spammers can’t use this black-hat SEO (search engine optimization) technique. It’s dead simple to take advantage of, and as a result, some sites (such as our own) often drown in it. Today, for example, we got a ton of fake traffic from bots doing an obscure search on Google (see screenshots). Here’s a quick explanation as to what’s happening, as far as we can see:

  • first Black hat SEO types hit Google and type in this specific phrase — “site:tumblr.com ‘liked this’” — a common phrase on Tumblr due to the way it handles likes. 
  • then Then, sketchy bot types will create hundreds or thousands of fake Tumblr accounts whose URLs forward to a sketchy-looking site not on Tumblr.
  • result These sites end up getting hundreds or thousands of backlinks to their sketchy sites on Google — and all they had to do was like tons of people.

» But we have a temporary solution: Are you, like us, getting a lot of spam on your Tumblr? This is a likely reason. We’d like to offer a suggestion to solve the problem. If you know how to edit your theme in HTML, do a search for the phrase “{PostNotes}” and replace it with this: ”<!—googleoff: all—>{PostNotes}<!—googleon: all—>”. This prevents the notes from getting crawled by Google, which is good because it focuses your content, but bad, because any relevant content in reblogs won’t account for what shows up in search engines. This is really a problem Tumblr needs to look at — if they take out common phrases or make them invisible to search engines, everyone wins. But we hope this at least helps your sanity. It’ll help ours.

5,000 APIs: Facebook, Google and Twitter Are Changing the Web | Programmable Web
Our API directory has hit another major milestone. We now list 5,000 APIs, just a short four months since passing 4,000. No longer is the web simply about links connecting one site to another. Instead, developers are using tools to connect data and functionality from one site to another site. It’s an incredible transformation that has happened over a very short period of time. APIs are at the heart of Google’s strategy and they led directly to the growth enjoyed by Twitter and Facebook.

“Ron Fucking Swanson” - Portrait Painting by Sam Spratt
Being a fan of high-quality comedy television and not watching Parks and Recreation might just be the second most blasphemous thing you could do (the 1st of course being not watching Arrested Development). If for some reason you are in the “yet to watch” category, I present to you Ron Swanson aka exhibit A on what you are missing (youtube video).
If you have “seen the light” and are already familiar with Swanson Greatness, I humbly give you my painting of him. Features include: High and tight Swanson haircut, Swanson body hair, Swanson mustache, Swanson mustache chest hair (not groomed, grows that way naturally), Tammy tattoo, Tammy 2 tattoo, Tattoo of the text from Ron’s Speech to the boy’s basketball team, copious amounts of meat, the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness, Food and Stuff grocery store desk sticker, and Mulligan’s Steakhouse apron. High-quality Archival Prints Available HERE

“30+ Sites for Students Who Finish Early” has been a pretty popular post. 10,000+ views! This tells me that teachers (including me) need enrichment sites for students who finish early or for their free computer time. That’s why I’m working on a website for kids that features not only these links but tons more.  I’m adding them now. I definitely think its a bit more student friendly.
If you would like a sneak peek at the new KB…Konnected Kids click on the image below. Let me know what you think. Any suggestions for sites?

I will no longer be adding links to this post. I will add them directly to KB…Konnected Kids. Hope you and your students stop by!

 From previous post: ”If your students are anything like mine they can get into a lot of mischief if they don’t have something to do, even in a short amount of time. These are sites that are fun, will engage them creatively, as well as intellectually, and also keep them out of trouble.”
I just added 10 more sites to my list from a previous post. I know some classrooms are using this list because they come to my old post every week. I occasionally add a few more sites  for them. I don’t know any of their grade levels or interests so I just try to mix it up. It seems they must find things they like because they keep coming back.
Here are the links that I have added so far.
