2007-01-10 [xido]: I like it! I will be referring to this a lot, I think.
I have a question about titles: Can the title be <center>ed and still have the same result on a SE? The same question for images and their descriptions..
2007-01-10 [Hedda]: Title? I guess you're talking about heading, not titles.
I doubt any search engine would care about the center-tag at all. Sometimes they care a little about bold and italic though (In a positive way usually).
2007-01-11 [xido]: yes, heading... That's it. (*is html-retarded most days*)
Okay, good. I like centered text at the top. It looks cleaner.
I will msg you about some tag ideas I have.
2007-01-30 [Artsieladie]: I've read this a couple of times. Each time, I understand a little more. In the keywords, for my images of Pegasus, I would enter: Pegasus & art, but what else? Elftown? My name? Other? Does it matter the order that you place your keywords in. In other words, is the first word more important than, say, the fourth or fifth word of the words you type in? :P
2007-01-30 [Hedda]: "pegasus art", maybe with "image" too, would be fine. The order might be important, but it's up to what the search engine thinks.
If you're expecting people to search for your name, then you can add it there.
Adding "elftown" is just bad. The page isn't about Elftown and the word "elftown" appears on the page anyhow. It's always better with fewer keywords as it makes the ones you mention stronger.
2007-01-30 [Artsieladie]: Aye, got it! So some, but "less is more" (as the saying goes). Ok, thanks! :D
2007-01-30 [Hedda]: "less is more" is a unix-joke... "less" is one program that does almost exactly the same thing as "more", but "less" is more than "more", so "less is more than more" or the short "less is more", but you can also say that "less is more" as they are almost the same thing... Yepp, that's what geeks do all day.
2007-01-30 [Artsieladie]: Ooookay!
2007-10-02 [Jitter]: I updated most of my wikis according to this guide and I noticed Google started showing much love to me ^_^ Thank you :D
2007-10-03 [Hedda]: It did? How?
2007-10-03 [Jitter]: Well 3 of the things I tried showed me on the first page of results (1 of them 1st and another one 2nd :O) and the rest I was at least first on the second page :3
(And out of pure luck this search also helped me find an opportunity to show one of my favourite bands my artwork I based on them xD)
2007-10-03 [Hedda]: Gnnnn! I got that, of course! I meant: Which searches improved and what did you change?
2007-10-04 [Linderel]: I would do this, but am too attached to my wiki names...
2007-10-04 [Hedda]: You can add keywords, never the less. And make explaining headings, and write under images what they are.
2007-10-04 [Jitter]: Oooh haha *slow me*
I googled "rogue human wow fanart" Mine was the 5th result :D
And if you google "tom robbins fanart" I'm 1st ^_^
And "Moonspell fanart" second :D
Well it's probably the fact that noone does much Tom Robbins& Moonspell fanart but it's awesome that I'm in the first page of results ^_^
I didn't change any of my wiki names :3
2007-10-04 [Hedda]: Seems to work great!
I get a little different order though, but about the same.
And the more people doing these searches and click on your page, the higher it will come...
2007-10-04 [Artsieladie]: *makes a note to try & do the Jitter searches....of
2007-10-04 [Jitter]: *cheers* I'll try it from this computer then in case IP matters xD *goes to advertise this tutorial*
2007-10-04 [Artsieladie]: I've had this link in my house for awhile. I told Sunny about it. *shameless boasting* Mua-ua!
2007-10-04 [Artsieladie]: Jitters, speaking of Digital art resources, do you think I should wait until I can put more than one image in a tube, or donate them as just one in a tube? I don't know when I'll have some extra time to study the tutorial you sent me on them. :P I've got quite a bit on my plate right now, but it wouldn't that much to make my png's into psp's. :)
2007-10-05 [Jitter]: I'd say do whatever floats your boat :) Even in single tubes they're helpful :3
2007-10-05 [Artsieladie]: Oh, they say this in Greece, too? *laughs* Maybe I'll do some now as singles & then later 'try' to make multiples. :)
2007-10-05 [Jitter]: No we don't say it x) I'm just way too used into English phrases, proverbs and slang so I use them accordingly ;p
2007-10-05 [Artsieladie]: Ah, I see! So, what are some Greek phrases? I like to learn about other cultures & customs. :)
2007-10-06 [Jitter]: Hmmm something like "Whatever your heart pulls" word-by-word translation :P Means "whatever your heart desires" :)
2007-10-06 [SilverFire]: Whatever flows your boat. :P
2007-10-06 [Jitter]: Oh shuddup xD
2007-10-06 [Artsieladie]: *chuckles* Oh, similar in meaning, though. Cool! :D
2007-10-06 [Jitter]: Nah she's mocking me because I mixed the words before when using this phrase :P
2007-10-06 [Artsieladie]: he he I didn't notice, b/c I say, "Whatever floats your boat", too. >..<
2007-10-06 [Jitter]: No, no! "Floats" is the proper one :P
2007-10-06 [Artsieladie]: Oh, I must have missed a change, then. >..< Typical! I'm always a day late & a dollar short! lol
2007-10-06 [Jitter]: Actually the convo took place on one of my tutorials so don't fret xP
2007-10-06 [Artsieladie]: :) I still am a day late & a dollar short, though. >..<
2007-10-06 [Jitter]: *comforts*
2007-10-06 [SilverFire]: *gives Artsie a dollar*
2007-10-06 [Artsieladie]: *huggles* It's ok. I'm used to it. A person has to know their limitations & recognize their idiosyncrasies
2007-11-01 [Janouk]: I marked this as an official Elftown page (even though there's no banner). If I'm wrong, please let me know! ;-)
2007-11-01 [Hedda]: It's not official. It's just informative. It has nothing to do with Elftown policies or so. It's just tips on how to do stuff.
2007-11-01 [Janouk]: I placed it on True's Page Directory though, should I remove it?
2007-11-02 [Hedda]: Yes.
