PTAB invalidates web page patent after Google request

PTAB invalidates web page patent after Google request

AddSearch
The US Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) has invalidated patent claims directed to retrieving web pages after Google filed an inter partes review (IPR) against them. In the decision, published on Tuesday, January 18, the PTAB said the patent is invalid over five pieces of prior art. The patent in dispute (US number 8,661,094) is owned by Israeli company Spring Ventures and performs page retrieval using a “minimally restrictive syntax”, the PTAB noted. It seeks to address several problems, including that in many countries, English is not the native language and the Latin alphabet is not used. As a result, meaningful World Wide Web addresses in such countries are typically created by transliterating the name of the site owner into Latin letters, the PTAB added. In 2016, Spring Ventu

  Here at Small Business Trends we’ve had an amazing year and we could not have done it without you.  We’d like to share a look back, with our 2018 Annual Report. The Year Started Slow – But Ended Great! The year 2018 has been fantastic overall for us. But the year did not start out that way. Sales in the first quarter of 2018 were slow. At the end of February cash flow was at a low point. But the team did not let that get us down. Instead, it inspired us to work harder. We spent the next two quarters catching up, getting out of the red and back to the black. And then we had a terrific fourth quarter to cap things off. More on that in just a bit. Thank you, dear readers, from the bottom of our hearts. You inspire us to do better. And thank you to our valued sponsors and advertise

Does the thought of SEO produce in you a mixture of fear and confusion? It's time to stop putting it on the back burner and get your photography website noticed on the front page of Google with these SEO tips. Corey Potter is somewhat of an SEO Guru. I first heard about him through a fantastic podcast from Andrew Hellmich called "PhotobizXposed." I was impressed with how he explained SEO (Search Engine Optimization) strategies specifically for photographers in an uncomplicated and practical way. To be honest, SEO is one thing that I have struggled with. It's not that it's super difficult, but it is something that you have to be so consistent with, and I am more of a sporadic, think about it every other month kind of girl. That's why I found this video so refreshing, because even thou...

Google's John Mueller said on Reddit that higher page count "means nothing" for ranking higher in Google. He said, in fact, he has seen case studies from the SEO community where reducing the number of pages results in overall better rankings in Google search. But the number of pages on your site is not a specific ranking factor in Google.John wrote:A higher page count means nothing (otherwise everyone would have an infinite calendar on their site, or heck, two.) There's (still) no magical ranking factor that results in a site ranking better if it has more pages indexed. If anything, anecdotally from conference presentations & talking with folks, large sites that reduce the number of indexed pages end up ranking better (usually from cutting out cruft, merging similar content,...

3 free tools to comprehensively test page speed

Google Site Search
Having a fast site is important, since faster sites are rewarded with improved search engine optimization (SEO) and the ability to drive more visits and conversions. More people visiting your site can lead to more sales, signups or traffic in general. That’s a true win-win. Of course, where there’s a positive, there is always a negative. The flip side to fast sites is slow sites, and slow sites tend to suffer from lack of sales, sign-ups and traffic in general. That is definitely not a win-win. Once you get above 3 seconds, many visitors leave before the page loads, many more will bounce, and your conversion rate will plummet. Not good. Fortunately, auditing page speed is relatively painless and, in most cases, can be accomplished with free, easy-to-use too
