Recently the owner of AlltheInterweb purchased the funnycatvideos.co.uk domain name to see if it will help nail search engine rankings for the popular keyword “Funny Cat Videos“, and also to create a social media presence for sharing funny cat videos.
The first draft of the website for funny cat videos has just gone live on our webspace, and it’s still so new I’ve yet to add it to Google + Bing webmaster tools for getting it listed in the well known popular search engines. Continue reading “Funny Cat Videos on the Interweb”
Thoughts are being made on making another stab at offering SEO Services from AlltheInterweb.
But if the last attempt was anything to go by I’m now expecting to get spammed by a bunch of people offering SEO Services asking if my SEO Services outlet needs SEO Services to boost it’s ranking on Google and Bing. Continue reading “Try Again with SEO Services?”
After an extended delay due to technical reasons and other events, work finally got underway the other day to create a new version of AlltheInterweb Forums / AlltheInterweb Answers.
This will see the current forums built using the Asgaros forum plugin for wordpress that’s built into the blog get replaced with a phpBB based thing linked to the forums with a “bridge” plugin to connect the two.
The improvements should see improved functionality with spam controls that actually work, and a return of my old tactic of using the naughty words filter as an additional tool to keep forum spam under control.
I am also hoping the forum upgrade will result in a better layout for the assorted topic sections.
AlltheInterweb Motors is a section of the website I started around 2013 aimed at fellow petrolheads and to try better put to use the car links section of the old web directory.
In 2017, as with many of my other online properties I re-launched it with a Responsive Web Design makeover while experimenting with Mobirise to try get the hang of knocking together websites via that new fangled method.
As that section ended up getting neglected (and other issues), I’m aiming to give that section another makeover to update the links on it and better integrated it into this blog, as I plan to shortly with the front end of the website.
Main thought so far is better connecting it to the car forum section here on the blogs, with the original forum currently toast due to some sort of change in CGI/Perl that means the damn thing no longer appears when you go to the link
This week I finally started the first moves to try improve the front part of AlltheInterweb to reflect recent changes to the Interweb.
These changes will appear when they appear, and made to try make this website more simple and tidier.
The existing front end was first unleashed at some point in 2017 after making the switch from my favoured Netobjects Fusion to Mobirise web design software, and incorporated links to parts of AlltheInterweb that have recently had to be discontinued.
The new version of the website will still use Mobirise, just to a lesser extent, in order to make more use of this WordPress part of the website you’re on now.
I only really switched to Mobirise because Google had started nagging about using Responsive Web Design. Continue reading “AlltheInterweb Update In The Works”
I’ve officially moved the old “Web Design Chit Chat” forum I had into being part of the forums on this blog due to issues resulting from my webhosts upgrade of Perl versions causing the original to no longer work, and it being too much of a pain in the butt getting it going again along with many other special interest forums I’ve run on the same forum software over the years.

One of the main things I have been meaning to include as part of the blog is an attempt at doing regular reviews of other people’s websites as part of AlltheInterweb‘s core mission to help you find all the interweb sites you’ll ever need.
However there hasn’t been much of a reason to motivate me into making that a priority.
That seems to have changed in the past month or so after 2 websites I was starting to like managed to p*ss me off by giving me a reminder why the moderator teams on other people’s websites never really inspire me with confidence that they’ve got a clue what they’re doing and motivate me to try to provide more sensible alternatives as best I can with my currently limited resources.
Watch this space for the reviews
The section of AlltheInterweb known as AlltheInterweb Pixels has been discontinued, this being an attempt at a Pixel Advertising platform.
It has been put out of use for two reasons:
- The script that made it work, called GPix is old and doesn’t appear to work under PHP 7
- No f****r was using the damn thing anyway.
Other options for offering direct advertising on AlltheInterweb are under consideration for the future in addition to the use of adverts from Google AdSense and Amazon Associates.
Having being screwed for most of the year due to issues with switching to PHP 7 (like many parts of the stuff on the web hosting I use), since early morning on Monday 14th October 2019 repairs have been underway to once again try get AlltheInterweb Answers functional again.
AlltheInterweb Answers is an effort by this AlltheInterweb website you’re looking at to have a go at creating a Q&A website similar to Yahoo Answers or Quora, using a free to download PHP script and available add-ons.
Repairs include upgrading the script from version 1.7.4 to 1.8.3, which apparently likes newer versions of PHP better than the one that was in use. It appears to have done the trick for the worst of the problems, and I can access the admin bits of the site again.
Continuing repairs are on-going by the removal of a s**t-load of spam posts, mostly from the IP Address ranges:
The site will become active again when I’ve finished tweaking, and making sure everything works.
Lastnight I uploaded a fresh website for the AlltheInterweb Politics section, using Responsive web design so it looks better than the original.
There’s still a bit more fine tuning to do, but otherwise it’s ready for use.
