The Google algorithm's most important feature is arguably the PageRank system, a patented automated process that determines where each search result appears on Google's search engine return page. Most users tend to concentrate on the first few search results, so getting a spot at the top of the list usually means more user traffic. So how does Google determine search results standings? Many people have taken a stab at figuring out the exact formula, but Google keeps the official algorithm a secret. What we do know is this:

Why is the Google algorithm so important?

1 1 1 1 1 Why is the Google algorithm so important?5.00Rating 1.00 (1 Vote)

Finding useful information on the ­World Wide Web is something many of us take for granted. According to the Internet research firm Netcraft, there are nearly 150,000,000 active Web sites on the Internet today. The task of sifting through all those sites to find helpful information is monumental. That's why search engines use complex algorithms -- mathematical instructions that tell computers how to complete assigned tasks.

Google's algorithm does the work for you by searching out Web pages that contain the keywords you used to search, then assigning a rank to each page based several factors, including how many times the keywords appear on the page. Higher ranked pages appear further up in Google algorithm search engine results page (SERP), meaning that the best links relating to your search query are theoretically the first ones Google lists.

For Web page administrators, being listed prominently on Google can result in a big boost in site traffic and visibility. In 2007, Google surpassed Microsoft as the most visited site on the Web. With that much traffic, getting a good spot on a Google SERP could mean a huge boost in the number of site visitors.

htaccess, also known as hypertext access file available to apache web server and several other known web server software allows us to change configurations on servers per directory or subdirectory in a decentralized manner. that way we could easily change server configurations per user account without the need to change the actual server config itself. this could save time having to call the techs just to redirect one file to another directory. htaccess can be very helpful especially if you do not have any access to the server configurations however, it can cause some serious performance issues too as it is loaded every time a page is requested in the same directory it resides.

Is MFC dead? Does MFC have a future?

1 1 1 1 1 Is MFC dead? Does MFC have a future?5.00Rating 4.97 (236 Votes)

“Is MFC dead?” is arguably the most common question appearing on the VC++ newsgroups along with variants like “Does MFC have a future?” and “Can MFC applications run on Windows 10, 11, etc.?”. A short answer would be, “No, MFC is not dead, and you can continue to develop applications using MFC and be assured that they will run on Windows 10” For a more involved answer, continue reading.

What makes a technology dead? The fact that nobody uses it any more? If so, MFC is not dead now nor will it die in the next 20 years – because, the number of people using MFC must be in the millions right now and even assuming that newer adopters would be fewer as the years go by, the amount of MFC code is so extensive that there will be a large number of developers continuing to work on it. Okay, so that definition of death wouldn’t apply here. How about considering a technology to be dead if its development is frozen? If so, same results – MFC is simply not dead! MFC has got some new additions (mostly classes that allow it to interact easily with Windows Forms) and MFC will continue to be enhanced by third-party developers. Okay, so all this talk of a dead MFC is rubbish! Next point.
