Opinion BY Armin First opened in 1958, Little Chef is a chain of restaurants found along the highways and “A roads” in the UK. Currently operating 162 locations, Little Chef boasts of serving 10 million cups of tea, 12 million rashers of bacon, 10 million eggs, and 13 million sausages each year.

Little Chef has just undergone a big revitalization of its identity, designed by London-based venturethree , and its restaurant design by Ab Rogers Design .
Writing optimized content for SEO requires more than just getting to the required word limit - if the author doesn't care about the output it is unlikely a reader will.
It’s a great time to start a company. Incubator labs are springing up all over the place, sponsored by venture capitalists and universities. Universities are teaching entrepreneurial skill, and have programs to sponsor student startups.
Here’s the first question: what is the business value of having one of your images come up at the top of Google’s search results? I don’t mean Google Image Search, I mean the first organic results (aka SERPs ) seen on Google.com for a particular keyword? If you have an e-commerce site, the value is pretty obvious.

Google announced support of the authorship markup, enabling content sites to help identify their authors on the site and across the web. The markup links up authors to content, for example, this content would be linked up to my name and can be used to find all the stories I’ve written here and on my other sites. It uses the rel attribute, so all you need to do is add the rel=”author” to your author’s hyperlink on the article page. For example: Written by <a rel=”author” href=”../authors/mattcutts”>Matt Cutts</a>.

I’ve lived by this rule since 1997: If you name your products using the keywords customers search for to find and buy what you sell, you’ll do better selling online than if you use the manufacturer’s name or industry jargon for your product names. I’ve been working on product pages on online stores for a long time, and I don’t get too excited about new techniques or tricks for boosting sales by optimizing product pages. I think I’ve near ‘bout tried everything I’ve read about or seen online. We’re always testing stuff, and trying new things, but every once in awhile something sneaks up and gets me!
