The Rube Goldberg Machine

According to, the term Rube Goldberg machine is a "deliberately over engineered machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually a chain reaction". Or in others words, doing easy things the hard way.

Well, I created this blog in order for me to try to learn the rudiments of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Although SEO in itself is something that is quite complicated for non-techie guys like me and one can easily find videos or self-study sources over the web, I want to learn the ropes in SEO by going through the process itself. As the old saying goes,
What we learn to do, we learn by doing ,I want to learn how to make my blog Search Engine Optimized by trying to do it myself. Just like the concept behind the Rube Goldberg machine, I am trying to learn something that is relatively easy by going through the Herculean task making an ordinary blogger account into an optimized page.

Although I have already been blogging for the past three or four years, this will be the first blog that I will make which will try to do what I always wanted to do for a long time - learn how to optimize web pages. Whatever will be the outcome of this little experiment of mine, I hope that something good will come out of this.

Anyway, the focus of the blog will basically be about gadgets and gizmos that I can find over the web. Aside from gadgets, I will probably feature also bits of news related to technology.

Well that's all for now I'll just leave off with my own short list of SEO sites where you can get to learn something for free:
Although I have not really used these sites yet, you may want to try them out yourself.
