Hi!

I understandthat google puts alot of weight on the name of the links on your site. Is this true? I have A Table with 50 pages of links on it named page 1 - page 50 , So I thought that since I was seilling boots and Ive got boots in my title and text I should rename all the pages to boots 1 to boots 50. to traget that keyword "boots" (pluar doesnt matter to google right?) would this be advicable?

Anchor text is very important.

Also, Google does not do stemming (i.e., "widget" <> "widgets" when it comes to keyword matching).

Your page will match searches for "widget" and "widget 1", but not for "widgets" (unless you include the plural too, either in the anchor text or in the target page's content).

PS: Specific keywords/queries are not allowed in these forums.

I gotta start selling widgets. Is it copyrighted?

I believe the Widget was patented and copyrighted by Guinness in 1992. It's a device added to a beer can to produce a draught-like beer. They called it a "Pub in a can".

The earliest known appearance of the widget word seems to be in a 1924 play by George Kaufman in which it is used in exactly the same sense as it is used today - as a hypothetical manufactured article. Kaufman was a great humorist and wrote several Marx brothers scripts including Animal Crackers and A Night At the Opera. I should think he invented the word for the occasion, it's the sort of thing he would do, but of course we cannot be sure.

Which I believe is why Guiness used the phrase

>selling widgets

:lol:
Well, I don't know if "widgets" are copyrighted. You'd get a lot of bored and curious webmasters... I think WebmasterWorld would beat you in the SERPS for "widgets" anyway!
I do know that "example.com" is reserved for example purposes and nobody can actually buy it. I think, anyway.

In a search for "widgets" WW doesn't do very well but it's #1 for "blue widgets". :>)
