SEO News Round Up for January 16, 2009

Posted By Joe On January 16, 2009 @ 10:53 am In SEO News Roundup | No Comments

  • Danny Dover from SEOMoz writes that they are rewriting the Beginner’s Guide Part VIII (8) which talks about Search Engine Tools and Services [1].  We were wondering when this document was going to be updated – Nice job guys!  This section will dive into common search engine protocols and search engine tools that provide more control over how your web pages are indexed.
  • This has been making its way around the blogosphere; That Google has created a traffic based sitemap generator [2].  The new tool  finds new and modified URLS based on your web server’s traffic, log files or files found on the server says the guys from Search Engine Roundtable.
  • James from Semvironment talks about how people are beginning to see more description lines in organic listings [3].  He asks a good question, what determines an organic listing that gets the standard 2 lines verus up to 4 lines that some people are seeing?
  • Building trust with your customers is a huge, but critical challenge for your online success. Matt McGee over at Small Business Search Marketing [4] asks some fellow peers for their insight on building and maintaining trust.
  • Bill Slawski from SEO By the Sea gives a lengthy analysis on reciprocal links and what search engines really think about them [5]. He does well to cover his bases and provide evidence supporting his thoughts. Long story short, don’t go overboard with them!
  • SEO Roundtable recently took a poll to see who takes the credit for faster site indexing. The tactic that came out on top, didn’t surprise us (honestly). You can see the results here [6].
