Yep, free seo advice.
Last Wednesday Loren Baker announced that Search Engine Journal would be launching a new project called SEO Clinic. Every week SEO Clinic will offer advice to one selected site among those that request a review.
Social media dominates the links this week, with Digg leading the way as you might expect.
Early in the week the news was about Digg lifting bans on some previously banned domains, which obviously welcomed news. Later the week saw stories about diggers burying stories in a somewhat manipulative fashion. And finally an article from Wired News about how easy it is to buy diggs and get your content on the front page.
The Yahoo! Search blog announced earlier today that they have finally added support for the NOYDIR meta tag. Yahoo! already supports the NOODP tag that was instituted a few months back to prevent DMOZ descriptions from displaying in the SERPs.
Yesterday Graywolf raised an interesting question in regards to the length of blog posts. Is there an optimal post length? Will shorter posts help to retain readers and even lead to more links?
If you remember a few months back I participated in Marketing Pilgrim’s first SEM Scholarship contest. I had fun and learned a few things about seo and sem and how to direct traffic quickly to specific page. Andy Beal announced on Friday that the second Marketing Pilgrim SEM contest is on its way and if you want to enter look for more details in mid March when Andy makes the official announcement.
