Here's A Neat Trick

Here's a link to PChuck's Kitchen.

Here's what looks like a link to PChuck's Kitchen. To the unwary, who are like the blogpsot victims, this might be a reason to post
Help! My blog has been hijacked by W3.org!


Let's look a little closer at the two links above.

See the extra "http//" in the second link? Now you know.

So, the next time you setup a link in your post, and the link goes somewhere weird (and ALWAYS test every link after you add it, and this is why - and I learned this from experience), don't get into the forum of your choice and scream
Help! My blog has been hijacked by W3.org!

because it hasn't. W3.org is a very well respected member of the Internet community.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) develops interoperable technologies (specifications, guidelines, software, and tools) to lead the Web to its full potential. W3C is a forum for information, commerce, communication, and collective understanding.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
