Building A Better robots.txt For A WordPress Blog

March 16th, 2010

So I have been designing websites for quite a while now. I realize the importance of a robots.txt file, and the implications it holds for search engine optimization (SEO) and preventing duplicate content. However, for some reason, I have never bothered looking into building a better robots.txt file for my personal blog/WordPress powered portfolio. Weird, right? Honestly, what made me realize I needed to do something better was Google’s Webmaster tools, which I started using since re-launching my website this month. After looking through a few weeks of data in my account, I quickly realized that I would be running into duplicate content issues at the very least.

Re-design and re-launch

March 2nd, 2010

So for the last 6 years or so, my website/portfolio/blog has been hosted under the domain mydesigncouldbeatupyourdesign.com. I really liked the domain name, but as you can imagine, I had some problems communicating it to others verbally. So, after some thought and some re-designing, I have re-launched under the domain kevin-deleon.com

The site is a lot more streamlined, and in my opinion quite a bit easier on the eyes. Let me know what you think, and if there is anything that you feel could be changed for the better, shoot me an email, or leave me a comment (who knows…I may just use your idea).

All-Spec Industries Re-design

December 5th, 2008

I have been working for a company based in Wilmington, NC, All-Spec Industries, and my goal for last 3 months has been to completely re-design the e-commerce website.

It has been a huge undertaking, and with the help of another developer, we are actually nearing the finish line.

I plan on writing a few blog posts discussing the ups and downs of the process, along with screenshots of the new and old sites.

Keep your fingers crossed!

Twitter-iffic?

February 8th, 2008

Well. I joined Twitter, and so far I like it. It’s actually quite an interesting concept really.

At first, Twitter seemed like another lame 2.0 app that to me really had no reason to exist. I mean who in their right mind wants everyone to know what they are doing at any given second, and on top of that, you actually have to be narcissistic enough to think anyone actually cares. Well, I was right, but I was also very wrong. Continue Reading…
