A lot is being talked about SEO and SEM. It isn’t very new technology but a lot of people are getting to know about it and are spreading the jargon. So I decided to delve into the jargon and hope to use the terminology appropriately in conversation. I am going to research commonly and “not-so-commonly” used words and have a Saturday SEO Jeopardy blog!!!! 😀 We have the answer in the title of the blog and we’ll also have the questions leading to the title in the actual blog. Hope I get some participation there….exciting for me for sure (I know you think of me as a geek already, but I promise to make this fun, for you and of course for me!)

On another note, today’s brand new news:
Facebook is coming up with upgrades which will include hi-res photos, photo-download links, bulk tagging options and an elegant lightbox interface for viewing images from anywhere on the site. I think this is great for Facebook which not only has competition as a social media tool but also as a tool for pictures (hi-res!!) hence being one of the world’s largest photo-sharing sites. This will also impact Flicker as a lot of tools used on Flicker will now be a part of the upgrade. Way to go FB! Click here to read more on the article.

Have a good weekend.

I have finally finished my Capstone Project and consequently the Emory Web Development Certificate program – we got the grades a month back  ( and the certificate too!) – great job Pooja!  I was also personally satisfied with my process and the research I did which I would not have if it was just a professional job. Sometimes we miss the how’s and why’s that get involved as a learning process – after all this is not just a job, I now understand why it has become a passion for some people. The grades confirmed that my efforts were not in vain 😀
I launched Raltec Corp’s official website at I also incorporated an SEO/SEM strategy for Raltec Corp website and am working on seeing progress by the day.
As Norman Lear quotes,

Life is made up of small pleasures.
Happiness is made up of those tiny successes.

My blog restarts my journey in process documentation of the virtual world once again. This time the structure is no certificate program but more of my self-taught/already self-learned endeavors of seeking knowledge of the web world. I hope to have a method to the madness as I had in the ten week Capstone project. It may not be as structured but it does hope to be more info and process friendly.

I am hoping to cover topics like SEO/SEM, CMS, web development, web design, DBMS, latest industry trends, blogs, and other related ideas/articles/seminars.  I hope the Emory faculty incorporate some of these topics in their certificate program.

Wish me good luck .   🙂
