Week 3 Thing #6 & #7


I played with a bunch of Flickr mashups last Friday.
I looked at:

Flickrslidr.com -- makes a slideshow of selected pictures, sets or groups

PictoBrowser -- allows display of flickr pics on a site or blog.

Mosaica -- creates a screensaver with your flickr pictures that morphs into a changing mosaic.

PrintrKillr -- is supposed to create instant calendars or playing cards, but couldn't locate my flickr acct.

FlickrPostcard Browser -- This app finds pictures by tags, and puts them up one-at-a-time on a black background. Reminds me of an old time photo album. Maybe my favorite of all those I played with.

I also played around with Trading Card Maker. I used one of the picture of Sarah and her friends and made it into a playing card. It was very cool. I was trying to make one of myself using my Yahoo avatar, but couldn't quite get everything to work correctly.

Flip-flops are a puzzling but popular part of today's wardrobes. Don't you have one in every color to match your outfits? Is it only a California phenomenon?

As we are aware that Alexa is also search engine involved in the ranking of various websites on the basis of amount of the visitors, it is required to download the toolbar of Alexa for improving the ranking here. The traffic rank is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of Alexa Toolbar users and is a combined measure of page views and users. People are of the view that Alexa is the authenticated site for grading the websites according to their performance online. The traffic ranking in Alexa is determined by the users, which use Alexa toolbar. So it becomes difficult to measure the traffic of the other users going to our website. Now the users which have not installed Alexa toolbar were showing low Alexa ranking inspite of the fact that of website that has doubled or even tripled their uniques, hits and page views. So it is viable that Alexa could be a good measure to see where you would rank among the other websites of the world, but they are not the end. The Google Page Ranking system also is similarly showing the ranking results in the websites. Fortune hotels in Gurgaon, Calicut and Ahmedabad is showing top ranking on Google, Yahoo and MSN search engines with key words like business hotels, budget hotels, leisure hotels, etc. But on the other hand it is showing a low ranking in Alexa. Visit alexa traffic details to see ranking of fortunehotels.in. We have downloaded the toolbar of Alexa but inspite of that the ranking is not showing an improvement. We are making efforts as required according to the instructions but are not succeeding. We would like to know the way out.
