The method below matches all words that starts with a slash and no other slash should be found within the String. Using regex, I used a positive look behind approach that whenever a slash character is found, it should check if the previous character is a space character while the whole word should also be followed by a space character as well.

This way, the regex pattern ensures that the first chracter should be a slash and any characters following it are accepted such that there should be a space character at the end.

The regex does have a little limitation. What if the very first character of the String is a slash? Then it would not match that word because there is no previous space character before it. The only workaround for this one was to check if the String starts with a slash and if so, manually add a space character at the very first index of the String.

When one reads the word link exchange, the very first thing that comes to mind to SEO conscious people is Google Pagerank. True, this is the essence of how one’s site can get a big pagerank. When I came across VoltRank, their free link exchange netowrk serve a more important purpose: to increase your site’s traffic. Now that is more like it!

Pagerank may be important to some but overall it is traffic that rules. The more traffic your site will have, the more opportunities you can get whether they are for promotional or monetization purposes. VoltRank’s process is pretty easy. Just install a simple piece of code in your site and that same code will display links and receive what they call VoltRank Volts. These Volts are like your credits where you will then be able to publish your links so it will appear in other sites. This way, you can distribute link advertising to any website thus broadening your site’s exposure and reach.

And the best thing about VoltRank? It is absolutely free! Register now to get started. It only asks you the most basic of information so the registration phase is really short and quick. And you have to know about this. Since VoltRank wants to make sure your site gets good page rank and traffic, they make a point to work only with sites that have at least a page rank of 1. Sites are reviewed upon submission to ensure this requirement.

No need to exert effort with SEO. VoltRank takes the hassle off from you. It is specially advantageous to non-techie users who have no idea where to start in how to increase page rank and traffic of their site. Now, I may have said many things here but the best way to appreciate what VoltRank can do for you is for you to register an account and check out the features. Go ahead and see how your site can benefit from them.

Some folks at the Hacker publication 2600 decided to compile a list of words that are restricted by Google Instant. Except in extreme and special cases, Google is known for anything but censorship but there are some terms the web giant’s new instant search feature won’t work with.

Which is quite understandable really. I mean, if you got a kid and you are currently typing something that resembles a naughty word, you surely do not want Google Instant to show search results based on that naughty substring that you are currently typing.

So do not be surprised if nothing happens while you are typing something. If you are aware of that dirty word and you still want to see results, you will have to manually press the SEARCH button in the search form in order to see results.

Google is struggling to prevent the text of offensive searches users have made in the past from jumping up in front of you when you are looking for something innocuous. I totally do not have any problem with this and I agree with Google Instant’s logic in this case. What do you think?
