    Jul 3, 2013
    When we updated our Periodic Table Of SEO Success Factors last month, we came very close to adding a mobile element to it. Now we’ve actually done so, in the wake of Google giving explicit advice that sites with issues for mobile devices might not rank as well, in the future.

    We were close, so close, to adding a mobile element when our updated table was posted on June 10. As we explained then: Finally, the survey asked respondents if, among other new suggestions, a new element relating to...

    What are some things that make a website seem untrustworthy to you (and therefore potentially to Google)?

    If I write about another article, where should I link to the original source?

    Jul 1, 2013
    I have a blog and I post original articles but I also like to link to the original website. So I link the website in a word in the first paragraph....

    Tedster, as many of you knew him, Warren "Ted" Ulle, has passed away late Thursday night after a long battle with his illness.

    I'll be honest, it is hard for me to write this, knowing how many people he has helped over his 15 or so years in the SEO/SEM industry...

    Here’s what Google used to say about how to improve rankings in their search engine results:

    “In general, webmasters can improve the rank of their sites by increasing the number of high-quality sites that link to their pages.”

    Here’s what they say today:

    “In general, webmasters can improve the rank of their sites by creating high-quality sites that users will want to use and share.”

    There’s some good, in-depth coverage on this on Search Engine Land, but I want to dive into why this...

    Why the Steampunk movement is important

    by Rian van der Merwe
    Jun 30, 2013
    I’ve long been fascinated by the Steampunk movement, and Nick Harkaway’s The Steampunk Movement Is Good And Important is another great essay on the topic. Nick starts by explaining why Steampunk appeals to people (“it is premised on a technology which is visible and pleasing to the naked eye, and whose moving parts are comprehensible on a human scale,” and “it is an ethos of design and creativity which acknowledges the humanly physical, that which we can understand with our fingers”). He then...

    Goodbye AltaVista. You deserved better than this. Better than the one-sentence send-off Yahoo gave you today, when announcing your July 8 closure date. But then again, you always were the bright child neglected by your parents. The Amazing AltaVista

    You appeared on the search engine scene in December 1995. You made us go “woah” when you arrived. You did that by indexing around 20 million web pages, at a time when indexing 2 million web pages was considered to be big.

    Today, of course,...

    Jun 28, 2013
    There have been quite a few posts over the past few months about what to do once Google Reader shuts down this weekend. I’ve been sticking my head in the sand, hoping that Silvio Rizzi will come to the rescue at the last minute and let me keep using my current setup, which is to use Reeder across all my devices (Mac, iPhone, and iPad). But alas, it looks like that’s not going to happen. So after much weeping and gnashing of teeth, here’s the setup I’ll go with for now. Feedbin as RSS sync...

    The Evolution of Search

    Jun 27, 2013
    Knowing where we're going often means knowing where we've come from. The history of search engines is a short one, but one of constant change.

    In today's Whiteboard Friday, Danny Sullivan takes a look at how search has evolved into the complicated engine it's become, and what that means for its neon-lit, rocket-car future. Whiteboard Friday - Evolution of Search - Danny Sullivan - 20130610...
