Some times you just need to rant
Much earlier today I was encouraged to do a little rant in live chat. The word "freakin" came up a lot during this rant.
I've been trying to get more familiar with Googe Webmaster Tools and Analytics lately, but some of it just really has not made sense.
In webmaster tools it was giving me good high number of indexed pages based on my site map, but when I went to the Index Status I was seeing a consistent 2. Today, for no reason what-so-ever, that 2 jumped up to 94. I definitely don't have 94 URLs to index...I think it's counting all my images.
There have been some other odd things, but my rant earlier pretty much helped me release my frustrations with those.
I made a blog about the grammar police a while ago. There have been some really good funny posts about punctuation and common grammar/spelling errors since. One I see pop up that drives me nuts for some reason is the misspelling of 'a lot'. It's two words. 'A' and 'lot'. A lot is misspelled a lot!
- Alot is not a word. It does not exist
- A lot is the opposite of a little. Lot can be a noun that means a large number or amount
- Allot means to distribute or divide. It is a verb. (He went through his allotted work quickly.)
Does anyone care? Maybe, and maybe not. We all have our little pet peeves though. And if this little three bullets helps someone to spell 'a lot' correctly in the future than I would have helped at least one person.
Thanks a lot folks. I really needed to get that off my chest.
