Advanced Computer Repair Techniques Index, the your gateway to all these
separate topics ...
Welcome to the Advanced Computer Repair Techniques
The Advanced DIY Computer Repairs procedures section was moved from my old
blog www.fix-it-blog.com because I shut it down.
Why did I close my
Google did an algorithm change that was aimed at stopping web spam, one of the
factors in this algorithm were the number of in bound links to a web site.
Although the old philosophy on web sites linking to other web site was the
owner of a web site "has no control over who links to their web site." This is no
longer the case, instead of going after the spammers Google is making the owner
of a web site responsible for the inbound links.
The way Google is doing this is by downgrading the page rank of a web site
that has excessive in bound links relevant or not to the web site content.
The blog had over 5000 in bound links to this web site all to help the
reader with understanding the topic that was posted to the blog. Google takes
exception to this practice and cut 90% of the traffic it was sending to this
So in defense of this web site I decided to close
down and move the pertinent content to this web site.
For those that were looking forward to the posts I apologize, for the new
readers of this web site: Enjoy!

explanation or if you have the

Manual it has over 14 pages of
translated from techie/geek definitions.
Expanding this section there will be over 500 pages along with the new section
about what it takes to become a Computer Repair Tech, I was considering not
adding this subject to this web site because it is for the Do It Yourself and
not to promote the career of computer repair or Systems Admin for an IT
Department, but hay - I wrote it why not use it?
This index is for the Advanced DIYer or the Tech that is interested in the
more geeky subject of computer repair.
