Google Turmoil creates jobs

The recent google turmoils of the past year (and this year) with the google updates, the pandas, punguins and all other animals it did not only  produce chaos to the SEO circles ...  it has helped create jobs out of thin air ... 

Webmasters have rushed out to see what is going on with their websites but also SEO experts not having work or new SEOers are taking advantage of the opportunity to get some work done and get paid.  What work ?  

Google blocks its own IP's ?

Within 2012 I have been accustomed in using google spreadsheets for lots of different tasks. In most of my spreadsheets I am using scripts that make use of importXML that are able to extract information from XML formatted webpages. The last 2 days I have noticed that all of my scripts don't bring any result back.

Can bad links hurt your google rankings ?

Have started doing significant SEO work lately (after long period of working exclusively on development) and got a chance to experiment with link building techniques and in particular profile links.  Mind you I do all the experimenting on non customer sites before I decide its worth the trouble and the risk.  I usually use my own domains that don't bring in any significant amount of money or use friend's sites after I explain the risks to them.  In this particular experiment I have used a friend's site.

Google Chrome Frame should make the developers life a lot easier

Google announced on tuesday 22nd of September 2009 the test release of Google Chrome Frame which is a plugin for IE that will make it HTML5 compliant.  The need came out of their effort to build the next communication tools (google wave) and they wanted to make life easier for their developers to accommodate IE that still has the lion share of the internet users. 

Chrome versus PPC: What is Google Thinking?

There are two Googles. One is a funky company with the best general search engine, a clean UI and the “Don’t be evil,†ethos. Everybody likes them. Once you work on SEO for a while you get familiar with the other Google: the China-censoring, keyword-bid manipulating corporation that may not be evil, but isn’t necessarily that good.

SeoDigger: Free Keyword Research tool

SeoDigger is a tool that I have been using for some time now to help me with competitor traffic and keyword analysis. With SeoDigger I have been able to easily find what keywords a competitor has targeted and what positions the site is holding for those keywords. Its a tool created by the SEOQuake team and it deserves a big applaud and a little explanation for the uninitiated.

Pagerank 0, the new Leprosy ?

I have a game site http://www.gamesonline4free.net on which I do lots of experiments. It currently has a PageRank of 0 due to Google's penalizing it. Here is the reason: 6 months ago it was a PR4 but that was also the time that I decided to experiment with the Digital Point CO-OP network and the TNX network. DP CO-OP is essentially a link exchange network that serves links on your site and serves your backlinks in other's sites. TNX is more like a paid links network.
