Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Learning from the Like button

If you have ever left a Comment on a website/blog, maybe you have noticed a “Like” button.. and maybe wondered what it is.

Well, what it is is kinda a gimmick, and a way for bloggers to get some pseudo ‘linkbacks’ to their own publishing/website – kind of disguised as a way to “give a thumbs up” to other writers.

See, the Internet is a strange place, and people who inhabit it worry about things like Google PageRank, and getting noticed (aka “gaining eyeballs”). It’s all about getting your URL mentioned on as many other websites as possible.
Bizarre, yes. But true.

Anywho.. I don’t expect you, Dear Reader, to care about that. The reason I mention the Like button at all is, recently several other writers have “Liked” my articles and since I did not recognize them, I followed them back (linkback, remember?) to their websites and read their stuff. I think you may very well be glad I did, as I am going to now refer you to a few of the more intriguing of the bunch (in no particular order). Happy reading!

Today’s quote:I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cabdriver. Then they would really be educated.” ~ Al McGuire
(I would add “and one year in uniform“, but that’s just me.)

And just because:

If you’re a blogger and aren’t getting enough eyeballs, be sure to “Like” this post. (Or, if, you know, you liked it..)

    • PhotoBotos.com,
      Very cool, and I am glad you did.

      I sure hope I was able to send a few folks over to see the terrific images you are posting. I wish you great success there, and hope you keep it up. (I really liked the dog/water shots..)
