  • The importance of domain prepayment for Search Engine Optimization (SEO)!

    Googles Search Engine Patent
    Googles Engine Patent

    It’s in Googles Patent… but not the end of the story! Googles Patent application became public information according to United States Patent Application 20050071741 on March 31, 2005 Serial No.: 748664 Filed: December 31, 2003.

    That day I went home to read the legaleze mixed with geek speak and attempt to make whatever sense I could out of it. I have to confess, I still find myself re-reading it and trying to keep as up to date as I can with the evolution of several of their many patents. ;)

    When I got to Section [0096] Domain-Related Information I was very interested indeed because I knew it could effect hundreds that I manage Domain Name Service (DNS) for. Before I share the details of the story of how I tested the sole value of the prepaid domain issue on Google and in my mind, I’d like to quote the Patent Application with a special attention to item [0099]:

  • My career history

    Welcome to the Joe page!

    I'm Joe Rinehart formerly of Ravenna, Ohio, now residing just outside the village of Bolivar, Ohio. Carl Knorr who first thought of the name and I co-founded the company config.sys which later evolved into the name to avoid confusion between a few other config somethings throughout the World.

    This photo of me was taken by "The MusicMan" of the Buckeye Computer Club in Canton, Ohio while I was discussing "Information Technology" in 1993. I've since cut my hair to Marine corps standards.
