Chess Software

chess software

Our favourite chess store has now started stocking the whole range of chess software titles. With Fritz 11 now available and being the main chess software item in demand in the chess community, the whole sector is alight with sales expectation. The whole genre of chess software is a sector that is benefitting from the gradual demise of the stand-alone chess computer, not through an abscence of demand but through the miserable build quality and worse quality control of the main company manufacturing such products - Novag. Chessbase is ready to take up the demand with products that are superb and fully functional. Fritz and Shredder are examples of the best of breed. There are also many products that even fit on the growing arena of pocket PC computing.

Are you Linked In?

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 12:53 pm


In Web 2.0 networking - the site Linked-in is a useful SEO resource for outgoing links without the nofollow tag being used and for keeping a tab on resources for your organisation or your personal life. The site allows a typical facebook style accomodation of web resources throughout the web and in real life - we’ve found it useful to our company for keeping track of who’s who. We are also looking at it as a possible CRM application. The site is one of a growing offering by companies who monetise through adsense and which provide excellent resource for small companies competing for exposure to customers. Another is eSnips and Squidoo which offer sites/pages hosted with them on different C-Class IP addresses. The key on this genre of page hosting is to create a page but not to just leave it as if people will magically find it. Even ‘linked in’ has to be ‘linked to’ - otherwise it’s unlikely to be indexed by Google or the other SE’s. The so-called parasite hosting of many black hat SEO practicioners generally fails in leverage because of this factor - all it leaves is orphaned pages by the thousands.
