50: new post   Are We Seeing Google Vince Update 2.0?
Could there be a lot of confusion in attributing ranking success of brands post-Panda with Panda instead of Vince? We talk a lot about different iterations of Panda (1.0 to 2.5), but not about Vince.

57: new post   Becoming Search Engine Algo-Proof
Every two years Google throws in a big change to their algo. They pick the latest thing they don't like and blow the crap out of a bunch of sites. Lots of people get hit.[br][br]This process scares the bejeepers out of me. In fact, I lived in fear of the algo for years to the point I wouldn't even meddle in anything less than pure.[br][br]I've attempted to make my main site resistant to algo changes. Initially this started out by being whitehat, that's no longer the case. I'm not blackhat, I simply do what works now, and what I expect to work in the future.

58: new post   Behind the Scenes at Google IT Department
"... the GFS ensures that for every file, at least three copies are stored on different computers in a given server cluster. That means if a computer program tries to read a file from one of those computers, and it fails to respond within a few milliseconds, at least two others will be able to fulfill the request."

63: new post   Big Changes Promised Shortly at Google
We've been working on this issue for a long time, and made some progress. These efforts started long before the recent spat of news articles. I've personally been working on it for over a year. [br][br]The central issue is that it's very difficult to make changes that sacrifice "on-topic-ness" for "good-ness" that don't make the results in general worse. [br][br]You can expect some big changes here very shortly though.

65: new post   Bing Google and Yahoo Unite On schema.org Microformats For Search Engines
It looks like they are moving their data "micro-format" markup to a standard that is supported by the big three search engines.[br][br]Hopefully this means that any website can implement these and get the benefits of the enhanced display with any search engine.

68: new post   Bing Results More Successful than Google?: Hitwise Study Says Yes
More interesting to me is their data on "success rate". Here there is no month-over-month change for any of them. However, the baseline shows a major difference. Success rates on Bing are measured at 81.5% and at Google, 65.6%[br][br]One reason for this is probably the definition of success. The detail isn't made very clear, but it does involve visiting another website. As we've been observing for quite a while, Google SERPs contain a lot of information on their own, and the user often doesn't need to visit another website to have found what they were looking for.

71: new post   Brandspam - Google's Latest Challenge
We all have our different views on the value of Google's search results after Panda.[br][br] What is undeniable is that a lot of rubbishy spam sites have disappeared out of the listings which is very welcome - but many commercial key phrases are now dominated by big brands that have taken the opportunity to move into niches that they have never been in before, and which they have little obvious expertise in.

72: new post   Broken Links Send Site Quality Signals And May Affect Rankings
In doing some research for a new article, I recently came across a 12-year-old website that has quite a few broken external links, especially on its "links" page. Evidently this site hasn't been updated in a long time and nobody has bothered to check for broken links.

Google plans to announce partnerships with some major players, including CBS Corp. and the National Basketball Association, the report said."

75: new post   CNN: Growing Backlash to (MFA) Content Farm Update
CNN: "Google made one of the biggest changes ever to its search results this week, which immediately had a noticeable effect on many Web properties that rely on the world's biggest search engine to drive traffic to their sites. Comments from site operators lit up on the WebmasterWorld.com forum starting on Wednesday. Many webmasters complained that traffic to their sites dropped dramatically overnight, and others expressed concern that they can't adapt quickly enough to Google's changes to its algorithm."

77: new post   Can Competitors Negative SEO Hurt You On Google?
A number of us have noticed that when we get extra links to our sites they actually fall in the SERPs and this seems to be confirmed by experimentation - OK, results may be skewed by algo changes but it seems pretty coincidental that on so many occasions a site falls very soon after the new links appear. This may mean that competitor's sites could be pushed down the SERPs by unscrupulous operators buying spammy links which are pointed at them.
