Default my answer turning up elsewhere


I wasn surprised yo find one of my forum entries coming up an a google search for one of my clients : I had made a reference to the site on these forums:

<http://objectmix.com/adobe-tools/718537-open-new-separate-browser-window.html>

is this "normal"

I get a little concerned sometimes as my clients often run their own searches, and if I have mentioned their site on forum - especially if I am exposing my ignorance (often) then I feel a little awkward when sending them their invoice!

Is there a way around this? surely I often need to post a link to the troublesome site if anyone is going to help me with a problem I might have.

In this particular case I was giving an answer - looking quite clever - but that's not generally the case!

Steve, like the saying says, if you don't want people to read it (for the next 10 years and more..), don't post it..

good point - I'm going to have to hide my ignorance under a bushel!

Opinion from an old warrior? Your ignorance isn't showing, your resourcefulness is. Nobody expects you to know everything, but they expect you to do what it takes to get the job done.

This does highlight one very good point though, always have your best face showing. When you write your questions do it in an intelligent way, no dumb language, no misspellings, write as one professional to another. Use good grammar, complete sentences beginning with capitals, smart paragraph structure, and capitalize proper nouns.

One caveat, if your client asked you to keep their URL super secret until it is finished then you might be committing a faux pas by posting it in a question.
