PHP vs asp for site rebuild
By: Oman

I've owned and operated an e-commerce site for 10 years. The original/current site is written in .asp. It's been a functional site for us, but we have a sense that it's time to rebuild. Just like the an old car needs to be replaced every so often, we're at a point where we're looking to replace our web site with a newer version. Our goals are to increased SEO functionality and improve site navigation.

Most of the SEO folks that I've spoken with want to completely re-do our web site. Perhaps that's necessary, but it might just be up-sell. My challenge is to determine what I would gain by dumping the old site and starting fresh.

I'd appreciate some feedback on this question; if you could build a new website today with all the SEO bells and whistles you could ever wish for, how would it be written? .asp, PHP, html5, something else?

Technology and the web are big parts of the shopping holiday now

Black Friday is almost upon us. That special time of the year when people rush out to the stores to spend their money, trample on each other, and get in fights over marked down merchandise, in true holiday spirit.

iPads, Tablets and Other Gadgets To Be Hot Items

Research shows that the iPad and other tablets could dominate Black Friday shopping.

In the US, UK and Australia, Apple is having a "special one-day shopping event". The deals are said to include discounts on iPads, Macs and iPods on Apple's online store and in retail stores. 9to5Mac claims to have more details from a "trusted tipster".

Amazon is doing a deal on Saturday, or starting on midnight - Black Friday night: All Windows Phone 7 and select Android devices, for just $.01

Google's Chromebooks

While not exactly a Black Friday deal, Google did announce a price drop on Chromebooks.

Online Advertising

According to a report from MediaPost, "Retail marketers gearing up for Black Friday spent more of their digital ad budget on paid-search and digital advertising in Q4 2011, compared with the year-ago quarter."
