Indignation more than net objectivity decision heard ‘in circles the Internet

Sweet everybody but Big Broadband extreme dislikes the FCC’s new plans

The Federal Communications Commission’s proposed new rules for net impartiality finger off a blaze across broad sections of the Internet this week, as reviewer charge that the FCC has successfully devastated the whole idea.

The vital alarm of most critics is that the planned rules would allow key ISPs to charge providers of online services for preferred access to their networks – commanding, in essence, an additional tariff over and above what such companies already pay for bandwidth.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation issued a statement Thursday slamming the FCC’s proposal as anti-competitive and bad for U.S. Internet users.

“This kind of ‘pay to play’ model would be deeply hazardous for contest,” the members said. “New innovators often cannot afford to pay to reach consumers at the same speeds as fixed web companies. That means ISPs could effectively become gatekeepers to their subscribers.”

Other responses focused on pushing Washington for changes to the proposed rules. A petition posted at Whitehouse.gov urges the Obama administration to commit to “true” net neutrality, saying that “We as a nation must settle for nothing less than complete neutrality in our communication channels.” The petition has 13,337 signatures as of Friday afternoon EST.

Nor was legislative branch been left out – a Reddit user posted the email addresses of every U.S. Senator, as well as those of each FCC commissioner to the r/technology page. The post has since been stickied (or pinned) to the front page of the popular subreddit and has received about 2,400 upvotes.

Mike Wu, the Columbia Law School professor widely credited with introducing the phrase “net neutrality” into the popular consciousness, held forth in a blog post on The New Yorker’s website Thursday, criticizing the president for violating a 2007 campaign promise to maintain net neutrality.

“unluckily, [President Obama’s] FCC chairman is in the process of violating a core promise to innovators, to the technology sector, and, really, to all of us who use the Internet,” he wrote.

GigaOm’s Stacey Higginbotham bashed the decision in an article headlined “When it comes to net neutrality, either the FCC thinks we’re idiots, or it just doesn’t care.”

“Absent competition, the proposed rules look like a way for ISPs to get more money, set rules that will affect the shape of what is developed on the internet, and do all of these things with no guarantees that consumers or the broadband economy get anything in return,” she wrote.

Other prominent media outlets have criticized the FCC proposal as well, including the New York Times editorial board, which slammed the commission for its apparent deference to the powerful broadband industry.

“The Internet has been a boon to the economy and to free speech because it is not divided into tiers and is open to everybody in the same way,” the editorial stated.

The business sector got in on the act, as well, with Comcast and Netflix engaging in a war of blog posts Thursday afternoon. The former company will be one of the major beneficiaries of the FCC’s apparent abandonment of key net neutrality principles, while the latter stands to be one of the new rules’ biggest casualties.

The debate started when Netflix addressed net neutrality in a post by vice president of content delivery Ken Florance criticizing Comcast on the related issue of its proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable. An incident earlier this year that saw Comcast demand – and receive – a hefty fee from Netflix in exchange for continued carriage of high-quality streaming content helped propel the issue to prominence in the first place.

“Comcast is not charging Netflix for transit service. It is charging Netflix for access to its subscribers. Comcast also charges its subscribers for access to Internet content providers like Netflix. In this way, Comcast is double dipping by getting both its subscribers and Internet content providers to pay for access to each other,” Florance wrote.

Comcast senior vice president of corporate communications Jennifer Khoury challenged Netflix’ assertions in a response post, accusing the video streaming company of trying to pass the cost of their services on to the Internet at large.

Windows 8.1 Update 1 does keyboard and mouse proud

Deploying Windows 8.1 with Update 1 makes more sense for business machines with no touch screen
The latest release of Windows 8.1 adds new mouse and keyboard controls plus other features that make it a much better choice for businesses that don’t want to spring for touch-screen computers and whose end users crave the familiarity of traditional Windows navigation. There are a string of small changes that make the operating system much friendlier to those used to Windows 7 or something earlier. Here are a few of these new features.

More apps on the Desktop taskbar
One thing mouse-and-keyboard users miss a lot in Windows 8.1 is use of the traditional Desktop view and all its functionality. Here you see the newly updated Desktop. Note the aqua mountain-skyline with sun icon in the taskbar, which denotes the Photo app. It is a Metro app (now known as a Windows Store app), and in the previous version of Windows 8.1 such apps could not be pinned to the task bar. Now they can, making them easier to find for traditional Windows users who use the Desktop as their center of operations. The taskbar displays both pinned apps and all open apps.

Power button on the Start screen
Turning off Windows 8.1 PCs has been more complicated than it needs to be – click to reveal the charms bar, click to choose power, and click to choose Shut Down. Now with the latest update on the Windows Start screen there’s a power button. Click on it and choose Shut Down. This eliminates one step and makes it easier for anyone looking for the power button to find it.

Search icon on the Start screen
Searching a Windows 8.1 computer requires simply typing the search query while the Start screen is displayed, but this isn’t intuitive to traditional desktop users. To help them out, Microsoft has added the magnifying-glass search icon to the start page. (You can see it in the previous slide.) Right clicking on it reveals the Search window as shown in this screen capture.

Hidden title bar
A title bar and an X-to-close button appear at the top of the screen in Windows Store apps when the cursor is moved off the top edge of the display. They look much as they do in traditional desktop apps. Clicking on the X button closes the app; right clicking on the icon in the upper left reveals options to split the screen with another app on either the left or right half of the screen, minimizing the app or closing it. Similarly, the taskbar jumps up when the cursor runs off the bottom of the screen.

Dialog box to modify tiles
Right clicking on application tiles as they appear on the Start screen reveals a dialog box with options including pinning or unpinning the app, uninstalling it or changing the properties of the tile itself. All these functions are possible using touch commands or left-mouse clicks, but they’re neither obvious nor intuitive to keyboard and mouse users new to Windows 8.1.

Popup for essential device info
Date, time, battery life and network connectivity are all standard parts of the traditional Windows Desktop, but were lacking on the Windows 8.1 Start screen. In fact there was no simple way to gather all that information. With Windows 8.1 Update 1 this information appears to the left on the Start screen whenever the hidden charms bar is exposed by running the mouse into the upper or lower right-hand corners.

Boot to desktop
If the machine running Windows 8.1 Update 1 doesn’t have a touch screen, it will automatically boot to the Desktop, so no more having to click in the bottom left corner or finding the Desktop tile to click on.

Link Building Strategies and Tips for 2014

SEO experts share tips on effective link building strategies in 2014, along with a handful of common link building misconceptions.

The question was top-of-mind at the recent Search Marketing Expo West (SMX) in San Jose, Calif. Links were a hot topic at the conference, thanks in no small part to the numerous changes Google made to its search engine algorithm during the past three years — changes that raised the questions of what still works in SEO practices and what can get you into trouble.

“Link building is where we see people getting hurt the most” from Google penalties, said Rhea Drysdale, CEO of online reputation branding firm Outspoken Media.

link building, SEO, Internet

“Most of what you’ve been doing [for link building] doesn’t work anymore,” said Kaila Strong, director of client strategy for Vertical Measures. “Reciprocal links, exact-match anchor text, guest blogging, blogroll links, blog post comment links, links in forums — they aren’t sustainable and can get you into trouble.”

Among Google’s big changes was an initiative nicknamed “Penguin,” which first rolled out in April 2012 and has been subsequently updated. Penguin was designed to push down search engine rankings for websites that artificially increased their Google positions through black-hat link acquisition.

Two recent high-profile examples discussed at the conference illustrate what can happen when websites engage in questionable link-building practices.

Rap Genius

Google rapped online song-lyric website Rap Genius on the knuckles in late 2013, for openly “soliciting links for promotional tweets and writing a blog post about their bad link building decisions,” according to Search Engine Watch.

Google’s Web-spam watchdog Matt Cutts learned of Rap Genius’s tweets and post, and within 24 hours Rap Genius “was no longer ranking for the many lyrics they previously ranked for, nor did they even rank for their Rap Genius brand name,” wrote Search Engine Watch blogger Jennifer Slegg. Rap Genius subsequently cleaned up its act in order to get back into Google’s good graces and wrote a blog post explaining how it accomplished the feat.

Expedia

In January 2014, travel website Expedia’s search visibility suddenly dropped 25 percent for many of its most important keywords. Though neither Expedia nor Google commented, the penalty was apparently the result of an “unnatural link penalty,” such as possible paid links on article sites, according to Search Engine Land.
Are Links Still Important?

During the SMX keynote, Google Senior Vice President and Fellow Amit Singhal, who heads up the search giant’s ranking team, reiterated that links are still an important signal for Google to consider when ranking content against relevant search queries.

Separately, some conference speakers and attendees wondered if Google might move away from using links as a ranking signal in the future. The talk was spurred by a February Webmaster video with Google’s Cutts in which he said Google already experimented with excluding the use of links as a ranking signal.

Cutts said not using links as a signal resulted in result-ranking accuracy that “looks much much worse” than what Google users see today. It seems safe to assume, then, that Google’s use of links as a ranking signal will remain part of the algorithm for the foreseeable future.

So what should search marketers do? The safest strategy is to “build the links you’d want to your site even if Google didn’t exist,” said Vertical Measures’ Strong, who paraphrased noted link strategist Eric Ward.

In other words, if Google stops using links as a ranking signal, sites with lots of links from other high-quality, high-traffic sites will still get traffic directed to their content because of those links.
Should You Pursue Links Today?

“I don’t actively seek links at all anymore,” said Samuel Scott, director of digital marketing and SEO for The Cline Group. “If you do things the right way, the links will come. And because you aren’t doing anything to get links, you won’t have to worry about being penalized for them later.”

“Links should be the result of what you do, not the goal,” said Eric Enge, CEO of digital marketing agency Stone Temple Consulting.

SEO experts agree that earning links is, and always has been, the safest way to acquire them. When another site links to yours voluntarily, without the promise of a link exchange, payment or other dubious payoff, you’ve “earned” that link.

For example, if an online news site publishes an article with a mention of your company and a link to your site, that’s an earned link — the best kind you can get. Google is likely to see that link as a vote for your site’s authority and trustworthiness.

The more earned links you acquire from websites that Google trusts, the more trustworthy the site appears to Google. Trust and authority are among the search engine’s most important signals used to rank Web content.
How to Earn Links

Earning links isn’t always easy. Here are some strategies from SMX conference speakers.

Give websites a compelling reason to link to you. Content marketing continues to be an important focus these days, because compelling and useful content often earns valuable links, said Mark Munroe, director of SEO for real estate site Trulia. You “ask” for links by creating a site, content and features that will “organically generate links,” he added.

It’s OK to ask for links — if you do it the right way. It can still be worthwhile to request a link to your site, according to Strong. When you make your request, though, don’t come right out and ask for a link. Instead, ask if the site might provide a mention of your site and provide the URL you want as the link.

“Add some personalization to your correspondence, too,” Strong said, to help ensure your email will be read and acted upon. “Be genuine and keep it simple.”

Be careful with anchor text links. Anchor text is the highlighted text in Web content that, when clicked, takes you to another Web page. For instance, some sites use the anchor text phrase “click here” to direct the reader to another page for more information or to download content or apps.

Many marketers put important keyword phrases in anchor text to help the linked content rank well for those specific phrases. But Google is cracking down on the practice because it’s been abused, Munroe said.

Anchor text abuse “signals to Google your reputation is not earned,” according to Munroe. If you ask for a link, Munroe recommends leaving the anchor text up to the linking site as opposed to suggesting your own keyword-rich phrase.

You should also strive to have diversity in the anchor text used to link to your content, because an overreliance on one anchor text phrase can negatively impact your rankings for that phrase.

Know your audience. Monique Pouget, director of content strategy for Thunder SEO, says you should have a clear understanding of your target audience’s interests. Get a sense of what your audience tends to share over social media, such as blog posts, lists, infographics and videos.

Pouget recommended Topsy, socialmention, twtrland, Quora, Open Site Explorer and boardreader. These tools can help you create the most link-worthy content and target it to those who are most likely to share it over social media.

Do something newsworthy. “This is the most important thing to do, but it’s also the hardest way to earn links,” said The Cline Group’s Scott.

Google considers links in press releases “paid links,” rather than earned links. Press releases are still important, but they’re more useful for spreading the word about something important your company did — such as hiring a noted executive, releasing a new product or embarking on a charitable endeavor. Journalists and bloggers who receive the release may write about your company and include a link to your site in their articles, which is how press releases help you earn links.

“Never send out press releases just to get links,” Scott said. “The goal of a release is to get coverage, which will then get you links.”

Embed ‘SEO intelligence.’ Get everyone in your company involved in SEO, said Munroe. Work closely with team members in other departments, and explain the company’s SEO goals and how they’re aligned with business goals. Explain what you’re doing to improve the company’s Google rankings and why.

“Over-communicate at every step,” Munroe said. “Explain why something is important. Over time, they’ll start to learn,” and they can be your allies. “Set aggressive linking goals across each organization. Do periodic reviews of goals and performance. When everyone works together, the progress can be staggering.”
The Most Important Thing You Can Do to Earn Links

Many SEO experts agree that you ultimately earn links by knowing your audience; producing content that solves their problems and answers their questions; and promoting the content through social media and other channels.

“Get to know your audience,” said Stone Temple Consulting’s Enge. “Have a strong understanding of what they’re looking for and deliver it.” Following this strategy will keep you in Google’s good graces, and it can be good for your business.

9 reasons users won’t ditch Windows XP

On April 8, Microsoft will stop support for Windows XP: meaning, no more software or security updates for the nearly 13-year-old OS, despite it still holding onto just under 30% of the desktop OS market (according to NetMarketShare). Microsoft wants XP users to upgrade to a newer Windows OS, preferably Windows 8.1. Yet many people are determined to hold on — you’ll have to pry Windows XP from their PC’s cold, dead hard drive. Here are 9 reasons why.

The spectacularly bad press and word-of-mouth about Vista led many to hold off upgrading. But Windows 7 wouldn’t arrive until more than two years after Vista’s launch in January 2007. During this waiting period (a long enough time for significant changes in the PC world to play out), many XP users probably figured, why bother upgrading to Windows 7 after all that time? We would argue that Vista did even more damage: It made the general public distrust Microsoft when told by the company they needed to upgrade to a new version of Windows.

  1. Just as XP continues to be well regarded by many, Office 2003 has a similar reputation. This version of the Office suite hit the sweet spot of feature set and usability — and, significantly, it’s the last version before the ribbon UI would be introduced into Office 2007. Odds are, lots of businesses are still using Office 2003 (up to 30%), and it can run on XP. Microsoft will also cease support for Office 2003 on April 8, but the software will continue to work, and on PCs running XP.
  2. Moving to a new version of Windows from XP could kill an essential program that a business still uses and must have running flawlessly; or a casual user’s favorite application, which may have never been updated to work on later Windows versions.
  3. The two solutions to address this problem have issues: Windows’ so-called “compatibility mode,” which is meant to try to coax old programs to work on newer versions of Windows, hardly ever seems to work. Microsoft provided a means to try to run old applications through a virtual machine on Windows 7, but doesn’t officially support this tool for Windows 8 and 8.1. There are ways to work around this, but it’s not exactly easy to set up.
  4. Especially for the casual PC user, there aren’t many compelling applications that require a more recent Windows OS. The exception may be Office 2013, but many people and businesses may be happy to stick with Office 2003 running on XP. Now, for example, if you’re a professional in the graphic design or multimedia field, you probably need to use the latest versions of Adobe applications, but then you probably also already have a PC that’s more than powerful enough for Windows 8.1. The point being, those who are still on XP still at this point may also have little need for the latest versions of whatever applications they’re using on their PCs.
  5. Since most personal computing nowadays centers around the Internet, all you need to experience it is a good, secure web browser. Current versions of Chrome and Firefox work with XP. Though Google announced it will drop XP support for Chrome in April 2015, Mozilla currently has no plans to do so. (Microsoft quit providing the latest version of Internet Explorer for XP after Windows Internet Explorer 8.) Google and Mozilla would be doing Microsoft a favor if they dropped XP support for their respective browsers, but each would lose overall browser market share. So people still using XP to go online may have little motivation to move on, as long as the latest versions of these popular browsers keep running on XP.
  6. Many people are using web apps as replacements for the kind of applications that would run on an OS, such as the office suite of Google Drive. Even Microsoft offers a web app version of Office.
  7. Upgrading from XP is likely not realistic for many who are using the OS on a PC that’s several years old, especially if it was bought at the turn of the millennium. The minimum hardware specs for Windows 8.1: a 1 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, and 16 GB of free hard drive space. But all XP needs is a 233 MHz processor, 64MB RAM, and 1.5GB of free hard drive space. Therefore, the only practical “upgrade” option for many old PCs running XP is to simply replace it with a new PC with Windows 8.1 already installed on it. But this leads to the next reason…
  8. Analyst projections keep looking grim for PC sales, which are expected to steadily decline over the next few years. The total picture: People aren’t looking to buy new PCs (desktops or notebooks). Instead, they want smartphones and tablets, most of which run Android or iOS. So it’s not that many people are stubbornly refusing to upgrade from XP — they’re just not interested in having a new PC.
  9. The company hasn’t offered strong incentives to encourage people to drop XP, such as direct discounts for those who own a valid XP license key to buy a Windows 8.1 (or Windows 7) license. But they are currently offering $100 off a new Windows 8.1 device when you buy one at their bricks-‘n’-mortar Microsoft Stores or from MicrosoftStore.com, but you’ll have to spend at least $599. But you can buy a new, low-end Windows 8.1 notebook or tablet for less than $300, without the discount, if you shop around.”

70-643: Windows Server 2008 Applications Infrastructure, Configuring


QUESTION 1
You work as the network administrator at ABC.com. The ABC.com network has a domain named
ABC.com. All servers on the ABC.com network run Windows Server 2008 and all client computers
run Windows Vista.
ABC.com recently entered into partnership with Weyland Industries.
You create user accounts in the ABC.com domain for some employees of Weyland Industries.
You place the user accounts into a global security group named WeySecure.
You want to provide members of the WeySecure group access to parts of the ABC.com network
via a Terminal Services Gateway server named ABC-TS01.
What do you need to do to ensure that the WeySecure group is able to access ABC-TS01?

A. You need to configure a Remote Access Policy.
B. You need to create and configure a Connection Authorization Policy.
C. You need to configure Device redirection.
D. You need to configure a Network Access Protection Policy.

Answer: B

Explanation: To provide a security group access to ABC-TS02, you need to create and configure
a Connection Authorization Policy.
A connection authorization policy (CAP) allows you to control who can connect to the Terminal
Server through the Terminal Services Gateway. You can configure what groups can access the
Terminal Server through the TS Gateway.
Reference: Configuring the Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services Gateway (Part 2) / Create a
Terminal Services Gateway CAP
http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Configuring-Windows-Server-2008-Terminal-Services-
Gateway-Part2.html


QUESTION 2
You work as a network administrator for ABC.com. The ABC.com network consists of a domain
named ABC.com. All servers on the ABC.com network either run Windows Server 2008 or
Windows Server 2003.
The ABC.com network contains a Windows Server 2003 server named ABC-SR05 and a Windows
Server 2008 server named ABC-SR06. ABC-SR05 has Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft
Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 2.0 installed.
You receive instruction to uABCrade Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 2.0 to Windows
SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 and have it run on ABC-SR06. You need to have Windows
SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 retain the content and settings from Windows SharePoint Services
(WSS) 2.0.
Which of the following steps would be the best way to accomplish this task? (Choose multiple
answers).

A. You should back up the SharePoint configuration as well as the content from ABC-SR05.
B. You should back up the SQL Server 2005 configuration as well as the Microsoft Windows
SharePoint Services (WSS) databases from ABC-SR05.
C. You should uABCrade ABC-SR05 to Windows Server 2008.
D. You should install Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 on ABC-SR06.
E. You should install Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 2.0 on ABC-SR06.
F. You should restore the backup from ABC-SR05 to ABC-SR06.
G. You should uABCrade Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 2.0 to Windows SharePoint
Services (WSS) 3.0 on ABC-SR06.

Answer: A,E,F,G

Explanation: In order to migrate to SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 from ABC-SR05 to ABC-SR06
with all the configuration and content, you need to install WSS 2.0 on ABC-SR06. You need to
back up the WSS 2.0 configuration and content from ABC-SR05. Then the backup can be restored
from ABC-SR05 to ABC-SR06. Lastly an in-place uABCrade of WSS 2.0 to WSS 3.0 can be
executed on ABC-SR06.
When you run an in-place uABCrade, all content and configuration data is uABCraded in-place, at
one time. When you start the in-place uABCrade process, the Web server and Web sites remain
offline until the uABCrade has been installed. In-place uABCrades are best for a stand-alone
server and small installations as in this case
Reference: Install and configure Office SharePoint Server for an in-place uABCrade

Determine uABCrade approach (Office SharePoint Server)
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263447(TechNet.10).aspx


QUESTION 3
You work as the network administrator at ABC.com. The ABC.com network consists of a domain
named ABC.com. ABC.com has headquarters in London and branch office in Paris. All servers on
the ABC.com network run Windows Server 2008 and all client computers run Windows Vista.
The ABC.com network contains a member server named ABC-SR01. ABC-SR01 is configured as
the Key Management Service (KMS) server.
You are planning to roll out 20 new Windows Server 2008 computers on the network.
After installing Windows Server 2008 on three of the computers you discover that the servers are
unable to activate using ABC-SR01.
How can you ensure that the new computers are able to activate using ABC-SR01?

A. You should ensure that the new servers have a connection to the internet.
B. You should install the Key Management Service (KMS) on a dedicated Windows Server 2008
computer.
C. You should phone Microsoft Licensing House to Activate the servers by telephone.
D. You should install Windows Server 2008 on at least 7 of the remaining computers.

Answer: D

Explanation: To activate the new server through KMS server, you should complete the installation
of at least 10 servers. The Key Management Service is a Windows service. KMS is a trusted
mechanism that, once the KMS host is activated, allows volume client computers within the
enterprise to activate themselves without any interactions with Microsoft. KMS activation of
Windows Server 2008 follows a hierarchical structure. Each successive product group can activate
all the groups below it, and the KMS can be hosted on any edition that it can activate.


QUESTION 4
You are the network administrator at ABC.com. The ABC.com network consists of a domain
named ABC.com. All servers on the ABC.com network run Windows Server 2008 and all client
computers run Windows XP Professional. ABC.com currently makes use of two computers named
ABC-TS01 and ABC-TS02 which runs the Terminal Server Session Broker role.
ABC.com recently entered into partnership with Weyland Industries who make use of two
computers named WEYLAND-TS01 and WEYLAND-TS02. During the course of the day you
receive instruction from ABC.com and Weyland Industries to configure their Terminal servers for
load balancing whilst ensuring ABC-TS02 is configured as the preferred server.
What program would you use to configure the load balancing?

A. You should use the Terminal Services Resource Authorization policy (RAP).
B. You should use the Terminal Services Configuration utility.
C. You should use the Terminal Services Connection Authorization policy (CAP).
D. You should use the Group Policy Manager utility.

Answer: B

Explanation: In order to configure load balancing for the four terminal servers you need to make
use of the Terminal Services Configuration utility. This will also make ABC-TS02 the preferred
server for TS sessions. Using NLB with Terminal Services provide increased availability,
scalability, and load-balancing performance, as well as the ability to distribute a large number of
Terminal Services clients over a group of terminal servers.
