If you caught my post before the weekend you know Matt Cutts was running a grab bag where webmasters and site owners could ask seo related questions. Matt’s answers came in the form of three videos that he posted to Google Video.
One of the common myths about seo is that it’s bad to link out to other sites. The myth most likely gained traction when page rank was the be all and end with regards to Google and that linking out let to a site bleeding PR. The truth is that linking out, particularly by linking to the right sights, can go a long way in building trust for your site and improving rank in search results for your web pages.
Thought I’d give a head’s up to anyone reading that Matt Cutts is running what he calls a grab bag this weekend. He’ll be taking questions from webmasters and answer them in a post over the weekend. There are 112 questions already posted as I’m writing this, but if you have something to ask get it in anyway and watch over the weekend for an answer.
If you’re an AdWords advertiser you may notice a new feature in your account if you haven’t already logged in to see it. As of yesterday Google began to release click fraud statistics as part of the AdWords reporting system.
Last week Google Labs released its new accessible search for the visually impaired. It’s about time one of the search engines took accessibility seriously and I applaud Google. With an estimated 45 million blind people and 135 million visually impaired people worldwide let’s hope the other search engines follow suit and add their own accessible search.
