Applying Web To Your Business

Google recommend the following to get better rankings in their search engine:

Make pages primarily for users, not for search engines. Don't deceive your users or present different content to search engines than you display to users, which is commonly reffered as cloaking.

Make a site with a clear hierarchy and text links. Every page should be reachable from at least one static text link.

Create a useful, information-rick site, and write pages that accurately describe your content.

Keep the links on a page to a resonable number.


It’s a good idea for all the assemblies in a single solution to have the same version number, but the default in Visual Studio is for each project to have it’s own AssemblyInfo.cs file, each with it’s own version number. However it’s easy to share a single Version.cs file between all the projects.More...

Need to crop or resize images before uploading, in asp.net? Sounds like the alternative to thumbnail generation in asp.net web page? Here comes a handy code using jQuery, JCrop and ASP.NET.

I have coded a shopping cart in which there was the need of uploading images to the server, and keep the sizes as required by the content of the pages. In my case I had to hard-code the size of the thumbnail I generated. But wouldn't it be lovely if the site user could crop the image and fix the required size? So I have found one very useful way to Upload and Crop Images with jQuery, JCrop and ASP.NET. I hope this will be useful for all programmers.

Upload and Crop Images with jQuery, JCrop and ASP.NET


The asp.net membership has the mechanism that it locks out a user's account if he/she tries to authenticate themselves with false password five times, by default, or within 10 minute window. The locked user can then not login.

In the MembershipUser class there is a public method UnlockUser() that you can call for any username to unlock the user, this will reset their LastLockOutdate field etc and allow the users to login using the same password. More...


Worried about fluctuations in Google PageRank may be a complete waste of time but still, the PageRank values of individual web pages on a site can give you some good idea about the importance of those pages in Google.

For example, if there are two or more pages on your site with very similar content, find the one with highest PR and then do a 301 redirect on the other pages. This is a vague example but you should get the idea.

Brandon Thomson has created a PageRank Checker service powered by the Google App Engine that lets you calculate the Google PageRank of multiple URLs in one go. You can either upload the XML sitemap file of your website or create a simple text file with a list of all page URLs and upload that to PageRank Checker.

The service can also help you find the Google PageRank of all URLs that are linked from a particular web page.


RadCompression for ViewState

I'll show you how you can quickly enable ViewState compression and show you the effects it has on overall ViewState size and server performance.

How do I enable Viewstate compression?

Enabling ViewState compression with the RadCompression module really couldn't be easier. It requires no changes to your code, no changes to your markup, and not even a change to your web.config (assuming you've already added the required HttpModule references). The only thing you need to do is add a new Browser file to your web project (or modify your Browser file if you're already using one). To add a new Browser file, follow these simple steps: More...

The log file for database is full

When dealing with MS SQL (not MYSQL) I’ve seen this error message before, but found very little help on it out there.

The log file for database db_name is full. Back up the transaction log for the database to free up some log space.

Within the MS SQL Query Analyzer, do this:

backup log db_name with truncate_only    
go    
dbcc shrinkfile (db_name_log,0)
go

If anything, this post will be useful for me in the future when one of my MS SQL databases coughs up the error again.
