UK man sues Google
Here's an interesting story from the Independent newspaper. An English man has commenced defamation proceedings against Google because it indexed false and "deeply offensive and commercially damaging" material about the man.

Welcome to the June newsletter

  • Advanced Artic Spas - page #1 on Google UK
  • It's what every business wants - to be on the first page of Google!

    We regularly give you pointers on the things that need to be done to achieve this and here's another customers that's done it - Advanced Artic Spas.

    They are now in the top ten results (out of more than 800,000) for their chosen search phrase on Google and you can read below how this was done.

  • Don't replace your web pages with PDF files
  • Adobe Acrobat is a great application that will produce PDF (Portable Document Format) files. Recently Adobe have extended it so that you can add navigation to PDF files to link them together, similar to web pages.

    We don't believe this is a good idea at all for a number of reasons outlined in the article below. PDFs have a use on web sites but don't use them to replace web pages or you will hit usability problems.
