  • CNET Humor: Newspaper headlines lost in Web translation

    CNET recently posted a few articles discussing the need for Newspapers to headline their articles not only for the readers but also for search engine optimization (SEO).  What interested me though was the side article taking a look at how some of the well known historical headlines from past newspapers would fail the SEO test.  Reading the article may be a nice humorous way to end your week.  CNET asked a "SEO expert" how he thought some of these headlines from the past would be handled today. …

    The New Workforce: Generation Next (Generation Y) in your Organization1. IntroductionFifteen years ago a new employee with the federal government was in the office break room and found an interesting note on the union reading board.
