Will Robots rule the world?

The way human race is innovating on technology front, it's not very far that most of the work in the world will be done by machines or robots. If we look into history, progressively we have seen that the power has been shifted from rulers to masses. Democracy has done that shift by periodically making decisions about who is going to rule next. This is not the case as when the rulers were decided by birth. With advance in technical systems, it's quite possible that sometime in future, the rulers will be evaluated on every second basis. Like the 'Likes' and 'Dislikes' of social sites. So will it also happen that when robots will become the workers of the world, some day in future they will ask for their

Quality of Content

There is an old saying in web "Content is the king". Finally what makes or breaks the thing in long run in web is the quality of content. In fact, it's not just the web but any industry which depends on content.

Nofollow links

Inbound links are very important for the success of a web page. Google considers those inbound links to calculate the web page's pagerank.
