Site update
posted by TheBroadroom.Net, Wednesday, May 16, 2007 at 10:51 PM (Pacific)

So...I'm sitting here, working on updating the blogger templates. The problem is not the blogs of course. The problem is that half the site is still on HTML pages, before I moved everything to blogs...and the HTML pages are out of date. They were produced before I got Dreamweaver, so they don't even have the "new" site template on them.

I can admit it's been a long time since I've done anything with this site, beyond the few sections I contribute to regularly. I suppose what's motivating me now can be summed in a single word: PageRank.

I know, I know, I shouldn't give a crap about PageRank--since, currently anyway, it isn't putting much moola into my pocket--but I happened to come across some people who use the Google Toolbar, and therefore view the PageRank of every Web page they visit, and it finally occurred to me that this site actually has a decent PageRank.

So, first the easy stuff...fix up the blogs. I'm halfway finished with that, it's more nip and tuck than any real work.

What I'm thinking of doing is simply grabbing the content of those old HTML pages, estimating the dates (some, if not most, are just going to have the quarter as the date), and shoving it all into...the blogs.

It's not worth converting HTML pages to new, Dreamweaver'd HTML pages. (It would be more than just slapping the template on.) It would be worth it to shlep the content onto the blogs. It's good content.
