Do 404s hurt my site? | Official Google Webmaster Central Blog

I’ve been through this. Testing and redirecting wrong urls and missing pages. I have a site with a couple of million pages where soft 404 and also not found pages can increase to hundreds of thousands after a big automatic update. I managed to handle all of these pages as a single developer of my own sites by refactoring and testing the code making it more predictable so when I change multiple pages I know what to expect. Here comes the very good communication with Google’s Webmaster tools with the help of which I discover bad things on time and can even improve an already a good positioned website.

Of course one of the big things to watch out for are 404 not found and 500 server errors. So let’s read about the former here:

It was not long ago when a similar attack happened against GitHub. I hope in the near future such things become very hard to do for the average hacker and the clever people will prefer to be white hats.

I try to avoid Win* stuff and when I have to use it I make it look and feel like Linux. But if they continue to do software of that kind I may start using it.

Touch scroll ConEmu under Windows + some other stuff

So.. I have my Win8 tablet and I have all kinds of dev environments installed on it. It can handle a lot, believe me.

I was using for a long time a combination of git bash console + increased console size in the default Windows’ console settings: rows and cols. I really appreciate the git bash here option.

These days I stumbled upon ConEmu, received many good reviews about it and decided to try it.

I am still discovering its features but so far I removed/unregistered the git bash context menus and use the same environment inside ConEmu – it really gives you everything you need: I have the git bash console inside, again a console window without horizontal limit of the characters, easy select, copy and paste, etc.

However if you like me want to use it for scrolling on the tablet you have to use two fingers. You will be in selection mode with one finger. If you prefer you can disable the selection mode for sh.exe in the settings – to not accidentally copy a part of the text in the console while you are trying to scroll.
