Hi All,

I have found a few interesting articles on the SEO front;

1) http://www.seomoz.org/blog/rewriting-the-beginners-guide-part-x-measuring-tracking-success

This article covers measurement of SEO and may provide some useful hints on how we can benchmark SEO outside of our current dashboard.  I think that the performance vs market share is an interesting consideration, one which you might adopt.

2) http://www.seomoz.org/blog/google-says-yes-you-can-still-sculpt-pagerank-no-you-cant-do-it-with-nofollow

The second article covers sculpting PageRank and demonstrates how Google has made a change to the impact of nofollow on link juice.

Enjoy.

Hi Guys,

There seems to be a lot going on in the land of search innovation. Here is the latest article I found;

http://digitalmarketinglab.com.au/index.php/2009/05/18/searchscape-%e2%80%93-the-latest-innovations-in-search/

Take a look at my article on Kumo – Microsofts new search engine set to launch in the next few weeks.  Interesting developments – they seem to be making advances in semantic search and also have incorporated blended search. 

What is also interesting is the latest Google changes to enable users to filter search results.  Have a look at the rich snippets feature – very interesting indeed.
