TrueType & PostScript – What’s the difference?

6BDF151A-8894-4E3B-8D5B-2D6B36913BC9.jpgThis morning I came across some VERY cool FREE fonts (from Fonthead), I had the choice to download TrueType or PostScript.

Now being a self proclaimed “geek” I was shocked that I really didn’t know the difference.

So I did what every geek does – I Googled (so you don’t have to) and found a great article on fontsite explaining the Differences.

Geek Speak – What is SEO?

 

I keep seeing this over and over again and FINALLY I said to myself, I do talk to myself too often, What is SEO? So thanks to webopedia, I found out.

seo

“Short for search engine optimization, the process of increasing the amount of visitors to a Web site by ranking high in the search results of a search engine. The higher a Web site ranks in the results of a search, the greater the chance that that site will be visited by a user. It is common practice for Internet users to not click through pages and pages of search results, so where a site ranks in a search is essential for directing more traffic toward the site.
SEO helps to ensure that a site is accessible to a search engine and improves the chances that the site will be found by the search engine.”
