Yahoo: Nicely Done

Google and Yahoo both offer Ability to add RSS feeds to users personalized home page. While checking my personal server's access log, I noticed a nice little information that Yahoo sends with each request. It sends you data on how many users added your feed and how many times a feed has been loaded on users homepages. Here is a snippet from from yahoo and google requests from Apache access logs: - - [28/Aug/2008:13:19:43 -0700] "GET /personalfeed.rss HTTP/1.0" 304 - "-" "YahooFeedSeeker/2.0 (compatible; Mozilla 4.0; MSIE 5.5;; users 1; views 247)" - - [28/Aug/2008:13:27:11 -0700] "GET /personalfeed.rss HTTP/1.1" 200 2173 "-" "Feedfetcher-Google; (+"

Nicely done Yahoo.

Making Div Clickable

Here is a simple trick to make entire div clickable which is needed when you want to make a banner clickable for a site:

<div id="banner" style="cursor: pointer;" onclick="location.href='';">

The best part is inside the Div you can have other links redirecting user to a different page.

Google: Are you kidding me?

That's the related search that World No 1 Search engine could come up for Java?

Yahoo seems to be better in this case:

I guess there is still need for multiple search engines.
