A quick lesson about the canonical tag/element

Ever wonder how can you be sure that search engines do understand what is real name of your page you want to index?

Now, you can simply add this <link> tag to specify your preferred version:

<link rel=”canonical” href=”http://www.example.com/product/123″ />


Matt Cutts of Google introduces the canonical link element.

VirtualBox 2.2 update loses network

I discovered today weird problem, not sure if it is related to my Windows XP setup or just a bug on VirtualBox but anyway I lost all network interfaces after updating from 2.1 version to 2.2 version. vbox_eps_cmyk2_ico
It is possible that the problem is in VMWare virtual network adapter because after I disabled VMWare virtual network adapters in Network Neighbourhood and re-run setup in repair mode it seemed to fix problem.
Anyway, Now I am happy VirtualBox user. I am still puzzled if I like it more than VMWare, maybe I do…

Update: as in 13th of April it seems that VirtualBox 2.2.0 build has many bugs. I recommend waiting bug fix patch for it before installing. Release 2.1 is much more stable. I recommend using it.
