So it’s Sunday evening after a great weekend at WordCamp UK 2010 in Manchester. For £20 it’s a bargin and really entertaining two days, providing your interested in WordPress. There were some great examples of successful sites built in WordPress and plenty of help for all.
If you’ve checked the BBC news site this morning you’ll notice a new design, the navigation has jumped to the top, new headings and a new side bar. Another little change is the URL structure of the news articles. Old URL’s used to be locaed on the sub domain and use the folder path the article appears in e.g.
As we all know if you change your URL’s you need to implement 301 re-directs from the old URL’s to the new URL’s. And the BBC have it’s just they are all temporary 302 redirects (Click the picture below to see results from httpfox)
Could be a lot of PR lost if the re-directs stay as 302.
Not sure why I picked this article???
Edit: This is not effecting older articles where the URL remains the same, seems to be recent articles.
As you may know I’m a massive Blackpool FC fan, this picture has been doing the rounds of the new shirt sponsor. It’s none other than Bing. We know they have a massive budget for marketing in the UK, you just need to watch TV for 10 mins and you’ll catch a TV ad.
Noticed that google are testing the search results without the underline of the link. Currently this is on natural and paid listings in Germany. But seems that the styling of the line height is out on some of the listings.
