  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to tell someone!

    optimization or for your viewers? This is one thing I've been struggling with simply because I want good search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my visitors.

    of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization.
