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.
