Hi honey. I was looking for Bicycle World's website, and tried to Google things like:
- "bicycle world" florida
- "bicycle world" FL
- "bicycle world" greenacres
- "bicycle world" lake worth
Lots of Yellow Pages listings, but no results for the actual website. I finally found the site by going to
and getting the link from there.
Most of the pages on their site don't have much for keywords or description; most don't mention Florida. But if you were to link to
do you think Google might pick up the result? That page actually has place names in it. The home page doesn't.
Working backwards, the only way I could find it was to Google for results directly from that URL. Heh.
Certainly I'll link to that page. But it's iffy if Google will index the page. It depends
upon the sites
robots.txt file, if
there are any appropriate
tags on the page, and will Google spider a site that is most likely the
output from a CGI
program (that can have bad consequences—infinite loops, lost data,
But it can't hurt to try.
Nothing worse than trying to debug FTP issues in the presense of firewalls.
FTP is a really old protocol that due to the way it works, makes it difficult to support properly when there are firewalls at both the client side and the server side, primarily because by default, whenever the server wants to send data to the client, the server initiates a connection back to the client. Sure, there's
passive mode, but that just means that the server tells the client to connect on a different (and usually blocked) port on the server for the data.
It's especially frustrating when these things suddenly stop working.
