Google Algorithms for Websites - ROI

   Hello Team ,
   Warm greetings!

   If you are looking only for an SEO expert you can stop reading this
   email right away as website promotions need much more to attract
   relevant and high quality traffic. You must be aware that Google tweaks
   its algorithm frequently and after several years of fine tuning, their
   algorithm is able to differentiate between good and bad websites just
   like a human. Therefore traditional promotion methods or only reliance
   on SEO/AdWords is going to be risky as far as your business interest is
   concerned. What you need is an online marketing process that can
   harness the synergies of different online marketing in an effective way
   ensuring high quality traffic, optimum website usability and
   incremental revenue.
   To promote a website successfully you would need only 20% of Technical
   SEO, 30% content marketing and Social Media, 35% AdWords efforts and
   15% conversion rate optimization/website usability. After all you must
   get sales out of your marketing initiatives. You should entrust your
   website with a company that is good at working on all these processes
   to make sure you get both short and long term benefit and bring a
   change in your business revenue.
   Now, how would you make sure that you get the combination right? It is
   simple; don't give your website promotions work to a company who only
   talk about PageRank and link building activities. As I said above these
   things make up meager 20% of the total promotional activities.
   Let me also stress here that an integrated marketing service
   (SEO+SMO+AdWords) is not an expensive proposition. The total package of
   SEO+SMO+Adwords comes within an affordable range and with the right

Problem building port

Hello list!

I'm trying to build brlcad from ports on
FreeBSD 9.3-PRERELEASE #1 r266465

I get as far as this

I've deinstalled tcl and tk and rebuilt them but all the same,

is pkg saying courier and postfix are incompatible?

I'm following the recipe in Hong's v7 guide, trying to setup a mail server
that will collect all the mail generated by web apps running on the same
box. I installed courier-imap first and believe I'm not authenticating. The
rc script doesn't report status correctly, which makes me wonder if other
parts aren't working (but the rc script seems to start and stops things that
seems reasonable). 

I then installed the main courier pkg thinking there might be undocumented
dependencies. Pkg reported during install that courier was incompatible with
Postfix, and would be uninstalling Postfix for me. I hoped I could
re-install Postfix later, but now pkg is telling me it needs to delete
courier to install Postfix, so it seems there is some incompatibility
between the two.

It seems a) installing courier-imap and courier-imap-base in fbsd 10 isn't
the same as building from ports was with fbsd 7 (and I remember configuring
mail following the book on fbsd7 when I first bought it, and eventually got
things to work, but it seemed overly complicated for just getting mail from
A to B), and

b) the current courier suite 0.65.3 (I want to also use
courier-authlib-ldap) seems incompatible with current Postfix v2.11.1. Is
this correct? Is this still the textbook example? What do people do?

building an educational resource list

Hi! I’m collecting a broad array of fun, educational resources after receiving several similar
resource requests ( from educators across the
nation. The common theme is a desire for fun, hands-on lessons to entertain and educate their students.
So, I set off on a fun adventure to collect as many as possible.

I have several I want to share with you, in hopes you’ll share them with others on your site (maybe this
page:, but before I do, I wondered whether you
had any you could recommend (other than those you’ve listed)? If not, no problem!

Here is the list so far - I hope you enjoy them as much as I have and that you’ll share them with your other visitors:

jails, IPS and firewalls, oh my!

Hello all:
I asked this question a while back and was a bit unclear how exactly to 
word what I want, so I'll try again now that I've spent time with this.
My goal is to end up with separate systems. For example, I want to run a 
mailman setup on my server. Right now I already have postfix running as 
well as nginx in a jail and did not want to try to work around my 
current configuration. I wanted to set up a lists subdomain and point it 
at which is assigned to my server and just treat that as a 
separate system.

So, on the advice of others who know BSD a lot more than I do I tried a 
few things. Mainly I assigned the IP to a jail and tried to firewall it 
off. The IP address though still is being used by em0, which means that 
even if I open port 80 it will point to my main server and not the jail.

I am looking for a solution where I can assign the jail an interface, 
assign that interface to an IP address and then just protect it through 
a firewall on the host system. I read about epairs, tap devices and etc, 
but I'm not sure exactly which would be the best solution. Any 
advice/examples or pointers would be awesome.



Take care,
He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; he that dares not reason is a slave.

freebsd-update install failure

On a 9.2-RELEASE system, just did a 
  freebsd-update fetch
  freebsd-update install
and got:
  Installing updates...ln:
    ///usr/sbin/lwresd: no such file or directory

Does one need to do a rollback, or is it safe to assume everything was backed
out properly?

What happened to mate?

Hi all,

I just upgraded STABLE:
FreeBSD 10.1-BETA1 FreeBSD 10.1-BETA1 #0 r271662: Mon Sep 15 22:54:02 PDT 2014    
root <at>  amd64

And I've mostly gotten through updating the ports. I've been using
mate as a desktop environment/window manager. But mate-session no
longer exists. The pkg-message just refers to, which is not even relevant.

Looking at /usr/ports/UPDATING, there's no mention of mate going back
to May.

So, ummm, I'm a little mystified. How does one start mate nowadays?
