We made it to Friday!
Do you have any big weekend plans? Easter plans?
My family always gets together and cooks and lets the little ones hunt eggs full of candy and toys.
Thankfully, the weather here is supposed to be nice this weekend.
Do you have any Easter traditions?
Hope you all have a good weekend and holiday if you are celebrating!

What's up with all these results? (Long due to examples)
I've had two clients now call me, upset with Google results when they have looked up their own websites. In one case, my client ended up having me remove his website due to what he feels is slandering his good name and displaying his private personal information (see http://www.webproworld.com/webmaster-forum/threads/113202-Skeptive-com-has-client-seeing-red) resulting in my losing him as a client; in the other, my client wants to know what they can do about all these spurious listings in Google. I can't come up with a satisfactory answer to that question nor to what this is all about.
I don't know what to expect by posting it here, but it is at least a way for me to vent my frustration and see if others are experiencing these kinds of issues and maybe could advise me if there is something that can be done about them -- maybe something that my server is serving is inviting all these other websites to wheeze on my clients' websites?
For purposes of example, I am copying and pasting below the first two pages of results I got when, like my client, I typed in their domain name without the .com into Google. I have changed their domain name where it appears in the results to "myclientsdomain" and removed the hyperlinks as well as any other descriptive info that might show up.

IE9 and Wordpress - Images not showing up
Hello, I have an issue that I cannot seem to find a solution to. the site: (this page is the best example) when viewed in IE9 shows grey boxes instead of the images - at least in the main content area. On the sidebar it shows the images just fine as it should.
The caveat to this is that in ALL other browsers that I have tested, including IE8, FF, Opera, Chrome and Safari it shows correctly.
Now I have double checked my IE9 settings to make sure images etc are working/turned on. and they are in deed.
Now this only happens on this one site, which is built in wordpress. I have disabled and tested each of the plugins and that did not solve the problem. I have numerous other sites in WP (same hosting server, same plugins, same everything) and they work fine.
Any one have any ideas on how to fix this? Or even further troubleshoot it?
