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.

298: 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?

"Link evaluation. We often use characteristics of links to help us figure out the topic of a linked page.
