A little late with the top posts of May, but we’ve been crazy busy with ShopSite 11 upgrades.

I love the month of May. Time to plant new grass for the lawn, a taste of summer, and golf gets into “full swing” (pun intended).

Of course May also has some great ecommerce pages and posts, so check them out on your iPad while you’re lounging next to the pool.  :)

    Heh, I always had a sort of ‘superstition’ about the whole 404 thing. I never acutally heard from anyone that 404s would hurt me, but I just sort of assumed. I would always get a feeling of dread when I noticed dead links on my sites.

    However, I soon realized that they never seemed to actually count against me, so it’s good to see Google confirm what I suspected from my “testing”

  2. Jacob,

    Yes, it is good to hear that Google does not really care about 404s. It’s more of an issue for actual visitors not finding the content they expected.
