I have come up with an argument and I would like the reader to consider whether it is valid or not.  Here is the argument: If it is a a major search engine then I should submit a site map using the search engine's webmaster tools.  Yandex is a major search engine. Therefore I submitted a site map. Is the argument valid? If you are a digital marketer I would like to hear your answer. The above argument can be validated using mathematical predicate logic and truth tables. However not all digital marketers are mathematicians therefore I have come up with reasons why Yandex is worth considering in an SEO strategy. Let me first define what a search engine is so as to rope in digital marketing newbies in the conversation. Search engines are web application which use software programs called crawlers or bots search the internet and gather information.

Information Technology Basics

What is Information Technology? It is the use or study of all the technology involved in collecting, storing , sharing and retrieval of data or information. It has three main components which are the computer, computer network and know-how . I shall first look at computers in detail. Computers are composed of hardware and software. There are five categories of computers but they generally have the same features. The classifications of computers are, Mainframe, Supercomputer , workstation, minicomputer and microcomputer. Hardware The physical components of the computer. There is basically the system unit and peripheral components which are devices connected to the system unit. The peripheral devices are classified as either output or in put devices, though some can be both like a hard drive, a monitor with a touch screen or a printer with a scanner. Output devices The most common output devices are  monitor, speakers and printer and hard drive. Input devices The commonly used in

Egyptian Binary

The Egyptian Binary is a method to calculate the product of two numbers by mainly using addition. The following is the algorithm 1.0  Start 2.0  Get a,b and sum     sum=0; 3.0  While a>=1               3.1.0  If a%2>0                  3.1.1 Start_If                  3.1.2 sum=sum+b;                  3.1.3 End_If         3.2  a /=2;              b +=b; 4.0 Display sum 5.0 End The following is the source code for the C Program.

C Program To Check Whether a Given Number is Prime

Image
(c)       Write a C program that will check whether a given number is prime number  or not.  You may find the hint below useful.  Definition of prime number: It is a natural number greater than one and has not any other divisors except 1 and itself. In other words, we can say which has only two divisors 1 and the number itself. For example, 5 its divisors are 1 and 5. Note: 2 is the only even prime number. hint The logic for prime number Take a loop and divide the number from 2 to number. If the number is not divisible by any of the numbers then print it as a prime number.       [10]

Continue and Break Statements in C

The following code snippet shows how 'continue' and 'break' statements affect a loop. The output is as follows: pi is 3.140000   printing will end at 4 and x is now 6  printing will end at 4 and x is now 5  printing will end at 4 and x is now 4  x (3)is now less than PI and program stops at x=0  x (2)is now less than PI and program stops at x=0  x (1)is now less than PI and program stops at x=0  x (0)is now less than PI and program stops at x=0
