This Week In SEO – 10/26/07

One more baseball dedicated edition of This Week In SEO as the World Series is under way. As a Yankee fan living in Colorado I have double the reasons to root against the Red Sox this year. Sorry New England, but you know how it is. I respect your team, but I can’t root for them. Go Rockies!

As always there’s more at my profile, particularly some of the social media and blogging posts I was forced to cut from the links here. If you do visit my profile check out Jakob Neilsen’s Alertbox on passive voice. It goes against common wisdom, but makes a lot of sense. Now on with the show.

Mid week I had planned on dedicating today’s post to Dell customer and technical support for repairing an ill computer faster than expected, but I changed my mind today and will continue with the baseball dedications and specifically dedicate today’s This Week In SEO post to Joe Torre, sadly the now ex manager of the New York Yankees.
