SSD (Solid State Drive) is a non-volatile memory built on solid state architecture. Unlike a HDD, an SSD has no moving parts which gives it advantages such as faster reading and writing data, while a traditional hard disk drive consists of a spinning disk with a read/write head on a mechanical arm called an actuator.

:: The Life Span of an SSD ::
Life span depends on storage types of SSD drives. But, simply put, the more storage cells an SSD owns, the longer it will work.

Life span Forecast Formula for SSDs:
(Write cycles x Capacity) / (SSD Factor x Data Per Year)

The SSD factor specifies the rate of the real amount of data to the actual data written. For the calculation, one chooses a high value of 5. In addition, the amount of data that is written on the drive per year is estimated. If an estimation is difficult, then you can choose a value between 1,500 and 2,000GB.


SEO is an abbreviation for "Search Engine Optimization" and refers to methods used to increase the number of visitors of a website by improving its rankings in the search results. Any traffic that you do not have to pay for, such as traffic from search engines is called "organic traffic".

Trying to manipulate rankings using SEO techniques which are considered as artificial is called black hat SEO and can be affected by a penalty which may result in the drop of rankings all across the site.

Google dominates search market and rank websites in their search engine results by using an algorithm called PageRank. According to Google, PageRank works by counting the number and quality of links to a page to determine a rough estimate of how important the website is. The underlying assumption is that more important websites are likely to receive more links from other websites.

Here is a study by ahrefs that describes how "On Page SEO" and backlink factors correlate with rankings:

Quora is a question and answer website that its users can collaborate by asking, or answering questions that have been submitted by other users. The company was co-founded by former Facebook employees Adam D'Angelo and Charlie Cheever and is located in Mountain View, California.

At first glance, it looks like Quora is an abbreviation for "Question or Answer". However, Cheever stated that 'I associate it with "quorum" or public congregation. We read some piece by Rich Barton about coming up with names for services. We spent a few hours brainstorming and writing down all the ideas that we could think of. The closest competition that Quora had was "Quiver" but we eventually settled on Quora'.
