692: new post   Googlebot Crawl Speed is NOT the same as Site Performance
There seems to be a growing confusion and even mythology around Google and site speed. It's becoming painful to read some of the junk around the web on this topic - and also stories from the people who tried to improve their site speed and hurt their rankings instead.

710: new post   Having Google +1 button on a page will override robots.txt blocks!
Now this one is interesting.I just found this answer from a google employee in one of their forum threads. The +1 Button is only intended to be used on pages that contain all public content. By putting the button on a page we're taking it as an indication from you that this page is public content. This means that we will fetch your page even if crawler directives indicate otherwise.

718: new post   How Hacked Servers Can Hurt Your Traffic

719: new post   How I Make Sense of Google's Complex Algorithm
In the past, we all knew that search engines were just a bit more complicated than they appeared, but we created mental models that did a pretty good job explaining the SERPs and we let it go at that... for a long long time. I like to think of those old models as the "punch list" approach - here's all the factors we think Google measures and combines into their recipe - let's make sure we hit each one.[br][br]Then, slowly but surely, something shifted. Keywords plus backlnks could no longer explain the rankings we started to notice. What on earth is going on?
