googleception

Jim Munro spotted an interesting anomaly in Google’s search results the other day, a case of Google indexing its own search results. This is not something you see every day. I went to investigate and noticed that all Google’s URLs returned in this search query had one thing in common – //.…

 

Experiment Results: Influence of Anchor Text on Document Title Rewriting

Can anchor text influence uninformative title tag replacement?

Separating Local and Organic Traffic in Google Webmaster Tools

Today I’m going to share a dead-simple Google Webmaster Tools hack that will help you split up pure organic impressions and clicks from Google’s local results. Hack is maybe a strong word, in any case it’s a workaround which compensates for the missing “Google Places” filter.…

 

Reddit: Google’s Semantic Data-Mining Opportunity

Google, however, won’t be able to link these concepts well enough unless it’s fed structured semantic data.

How to Visualise Very Large Websites

If you’re running a small-to-medium sized website, visualising website architecture isn’t difficult. What do you do if your website exceeds 100,000 or even 1,000,000 pages?

Visio, PowerMapper, SmartDraw and similar applications won’t do the trick. They produce great visualisations in a relatively short time period, but they fail/break/time out when facing websites such as eBay and Amazon.…
