Computer Hardware Diagnosis

While opperating the computer normally, with only a few windows open, and not running any large task. I received this error: Windows detected a hard disk problem. “Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss, and then contact computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk.” I backed up my files.

In the past 3 weeks, the computer froze about 10 times. I was not able to click any thing with the mouse, and I could not use the keyboard to type or enter keyboard hotkey commands like ctrl-alt-delete, alt-tab, etc. I restarted the computer and it worked fine.

I ran a check for the C drive and no errors were found. Right click the drive > properties > tools > check.

Appearing on Bing SERPs

I have an SEO campaing that I’m working on. Since Bing’s market share is up, and MicroSoft is spending money on their Bing marketing campaign: I’ll spend a little time looking into improving our ranking on the Bing SERPs.

I tested my keyword phrases on Bing and we’re not doing as well . We’re probably doing as well on Bing as we were on Google a few months ago. Reading this article and this quote:

“It’s important to remember that Bing indexes pages at a much slower rate compared with Google ever since the release of Caffeine. Don’t expect to see rankings change as quickly as they do in Google.”

This quote confirms my observation. I’m going to test the keyword phrases on Bing again to see what the results look like. If there’s an improvement, I think we’re good to go.

Here’s are some notes from the above link:

Ranking on Bing is the same as ranking for Google 2 years ago.

  • acquire high authority
  • relevant links with keyword optimized anchor text
  • Google’s new rules don’t apply
  • domain doesn’t have to be relevant
  • the page has to be relevant
  • title tag of the linking page is incredibly influential

We’re already doing all of these items.
