YourWebTeam.com

Howdy all, sorry to break the news, but I have stopped posting SEO notes on stinkycooper.com and started a new website called YourWebTeam.com which I will continue to post articles about my experiences as a web designer. I’m not sure what I will change StinkyCooper.com too, but stay tuned.

Thanks for following.

Practice what you preach

So lately, due to my lack of due diligence and or focus, my websites are starting to fall by the wayside. No Social networking, no continuous SEO, no updates..as you can see by this post, no updates. This is something we as web guys and girls…update and keep up to date with our websites.

Honestly….what’s wrong with us!

Google – FYI

I was just reading that simple URL’s as opposed to Lengthy Keyword filled URL’s are better for search engine placement within Google. I’m not sure how much I agree with that. I have done some testing on both counts and must say that in my opinion it is not the case. By having some keywords in your URL string pages seem to rank higher, providing there is relavent content on the page.

So, I would be careful before making that assumption.
But then again…who the hell am I!

Google Patents and Ranking?

Well, I just read an article an it brought up a 2 new Patents that Google filed, which you can read about here: Document Scoring Based on Traffic Associated with a Document and Document Scoring Based on Query Analysis.

    Web page creation date
    Changes and updates of a web page
    Analysis of search queries
    Links, link texts and the changes of the links
    Website traffic
    User behavior
    Web page topics
    Domain related information

Pretty wild and logical if you ask me. All search engines should use some of those as ranking criteria but they will hopefully use it with a grain of salt. You wouldn’t want to get dinged because your site doesn’t update for a long period of time, if it was ranked highly originally.

Another Google update

Google rankings have become strange. One day a site is ranked high, but then the site seems to drop, then only to rise again. From what I’m reading there seems to be a revolving ranking of sites going on. Which in my eyes is odd. A few questions come to mind.

  • How do I get a newer site to show up within this revolving list of sites?
  • What does this do to my current site?
  • How many sites are in this rotation?

I guess only time will tell, but stick to your guns and promote your SEO clients to stay the course and build better content.

SEO Update : RoomRate.com – AirportandHotels.com

Things have been moving up regularly. This is fantastic, albeit, exhausting. Finally, some people I work with understand and realize what I was trying to do in my early stages with Downtown Hotels and have let me put this back into the works. We have steadily grown in rankings with Yahoo and MSN…as well as google. I’m am very please and will post more soon.

Roomrate.com SEO Update 7/31/06

Well, we got the google smackdown again. We’ve been playing around with just our title tags lately and have watched google just push us around. It’s really insightful, frustrating and dissappointing to watch what you think is a great Keyphrase, or keyword and not get the results that your looking for.

So, Google says it doesn’t play favorites, yet, some of their “clients” get treated as if they have all the keywords and popularity no matter what terms you search for. – How is this? I understand some of what they are doing, but it is seemingly extremely difficult to break into the general keyword results.

I think I have some understanding of search engine placement, but then sometimes I feel like a novice. I don’t like tricks, gimicks or spam to get proper placement but I’m starting to think maybe I should start looking into it. It’s just unreal!

AirportandHotels.com SEO update

Well, it seems as though we are finally back on track with the SEO project of death. We have updated all of the templates to contain fresh text content and less back and forth linkage with Roomrate.com. By eliminating linking within the attractions area and the content area we have given Airportandhotels.com the contextual relevance that will allow it to stand on its’ own.

Back in Google for some of our latest updates…we feel we have finally done the right thing. Let’s hope it keeps going.

Horizontal Image style…Sweet tip

This is a cool tip.
