What do you want to know about paper sizes?

by admin on July 22, 2009

Prepressure has a nice and informative post on paper sizes in printing over at his blog. Unfortunately, he modified the URL structure of his blog and traffic to that page went drastically down. So whatever, let's throw some link juice over and see if that helps.

Hey DJ, thanks for the support!

I actually figured out about a week ago that there is such a thing as redirecting. You install a little plugin and tell it that if someone tries the URL http://XX, the server should display http://YY. I threw away 100000 pageviews or so the past 2 years by not knowing this.

Congratulations on making it to the first page on Google searches for ‘prepress’. Me slightly jealous! I guess I have to study SEO strategies a bit better…. or give up on it altogether. Recently I see more and more scanned pages from Google Books turn up in search results. Pretty soon we’re not just competing with other web sites but with old print publications as well. Imagine that…. a 40 year old scanned book and a boring and incorrect Wikipedia entry beating our brilliant stuff because of the weird way in which Google favors that stuff. Yuck…

Hi Laurens:
I haven’t the slightest idea why this blog is ranked ahead of yours. Your is much better-researched and should be considered more authoritative. That’s not being modest, anybody can look at the two blogs and see which should be considered the more “authoritative” resource.
Maybe my blog is funnier, but that’s about it 😉
Nobody can figure out the Google algo, that’s for sure.

I guess it depends on what people are looking for, I head out for opinion a lot of the time, real world stuff rather that the factual, although I have visited Laurens site and recommended it to others for hardcore factual information of prepress stuff. As for the SEO stuff, I worked with kpmrs to check out where my blog ranked based on the search terms we were trying to get across, and then tried to get as many backlinks as possible to increase the sites social status. But to be honest, you could spend your life just chasing your stats rather than placing decent content on there.
I figure that the people that do have voices in the industry need to work together and support each other, we all have differing opinions and that fuels debate. All stuff we need in the changing world.
