SEO Tools: UrlCheckr

30 04 2015

This blog has been dead for a while now. I keep it online just for archiving purposes. In the meanwhile a lot has changed and I recently started developing some SEO tools.

The first tool I launched is a URL checker, called UrlCheckr. With this tool you can check a big amount of url’s for their status (e.g. 404, 200, 500, etc.). This will help you especially when you’re busy working on SEO or doing a big migration. In the near future some new features will be implemented like importing CSV/TXT files (i’m researching the possibility to import Google Sitemaps) and exporting data to CSV and Excel.

The best of all, the tool is totally free! Yes there are some ads which probably annoy you, but that’s the only way for me to pay the hosting costs. Feel free to use UrlCheckr as much as you like and please spread the word.

If you encounter any bugs or miss some features, please provide feedback using the Feedback button on the right.

Migration to

29 04 2008

Last week I’ve completed my personal website. With that, I thought of migrating All About The Web to my personal blog. This is going to happen now.

Why? It’s easier and I think better to maintain one blog at a time. Also an advantage to this is that my visitors should only visit one blog.

I’ve got plans for the future with the weblog in terms of tutorials, in-depth articles, best-of-the-web, etc. How long, how frequent and in which form is yet unknown. As always, I’m open for suggestions 🙂

This will be the definitive last post on this weblog. From now: Please visit my new website.

New website @

25 04 2008

Today I’ve launched my new website at The features at launch are:

  • Blog (probably All About The Web will be moved too)
  • Comments
  • Featured/new work
  • LightBox for enlargement views
  • Fresh new design 🙂

I hope to implement new and useful features in the near future. Please drop me a line if you have suggestions for my new website. Thanks!

Photoshop basics and more

16 04 2008

For a large group of starting designers, Photoshop can be hard to learn; especially when you get in-depth.
Last months I’ve come across some good tutorials which guide you into the great world of Photoshop and show you some neat techniques.

  1. Photoshop basics @ DigitalWeb
  2. A great start for modern interfaces @ Pstut
  3. How to export to the web @ Tutorial Dog
  4. Nice technique for Flickr box-alikes @ Photoshoptutorials
  5. Brush techniques to create energy beams @ Luxa
  6. How to use 3 different saturation tools @ Tutorial Pulse
  7. Intense light streaks (perhaps not that basic) @ Spoongraphics

Another great resource: PSDTuts.
I can’t say that all of these tutorials are really suitable for beginners, but still this is one of the best Photoshop tutorial site I’ve found over the last years! Do yourself a favor and check it out right now!

SEO Reclameland (part 2)

14 03 2008

The first part of our SEO campaign is going all well. We targeted the keyword Driehoeksborden.
As for now we’ve managed to improve our listing in the SERP from position 9 on page 1 to position 5 on page 1. For us this is a big difference.

To continue our SEO campaign we’ve started with our next keyword which is Kranten. At this moment we aren’t listed in the top 100 (source) so we’ve got some work to do! Also, the kranten-page on Reclameland differs much from the Driehoeksborden-page. I’ll keep you informed with our results! Wish me luck 😉

SEO Reclameland

10 03 2008

These weeks i’m busy doing researching and testing some SEO-techniques for Reclameland. The first term we’re targeting is Driehoeksborden. You can follow the progress (and some in-depth information) on Reclamebureau DRP’s blog (dutch!).

Flex RPC Fault #2032 (ioError)

23 01 2008

[RPC Fault faultString=”HTTP request error” faultCode=”Server.Error.Request” faultDetail=”Error: [IOErrorEvent type=”ioError” bubbles=false cancelable=false eventPhase=2 text=”Error #2032: Stream Error. URL:xxx”]. URL:xxx”]

Yesterday this error raised the first time. Today I figured out what it could be.
It seems this error raises when Flex tries to access two files at the same time through a HttpService. Looks like a SandBox restriction.

More information on error #2032 (ioError) and other occurences can be found in a post by Judah here (seems to give a lot of 404 pages).
