This Week In SEO – 4/6/07

Midweek I saw someone call it a slow news week for the world of search. Somehow I managed to collect as many if not more links than usual and even added a new category of links. Go figure. In non-related search news Major League Baseball officially got under way this week, which is a something worthy of a holiday to me. We also had some Aprils Fool’s jokes to start off the week some of which worked and some not so much.

As always there’s plenty of news to get to. Enjoy and good reading.

This Week In SEO – 3/30/07

You might have noticed I have an affinity towards Vincent Van Gogh. The Yellow House was him home in Arles and also served as the subject of paintings and drawings. I’ve also borrowed Vincent’s last name to become vangogh in forums and other social media sites. On March 30th, 1853 Vincent was born and so let’s celebrate his birthday by dedicating today’s edition of This Week In SEO to him. If Vincent were alive today he’d be very, very old and probably not reading this. But we’ll wish him a happy birthday anyway. Happy Birthday Vincent. And now on with the show.

This Week In SEO – 3/23/07

It’s that time again and there was plenty to link to this week as always. I even found a guest post by Neil Patel on ProBlogger about using FeedBurner to improve your blog. Neil found through FeedBurner stats that link posts like this one on Pronet Advertising underperformed and were among the least popular. Seems like a knock against the linking out post. I’ve been noticing the opposite here. These “This Week In SEO” posts have been among the most viewed over the last month and have certainly been generating the most comments. I think it shows that the same idea can have very different results in two places. I’d like to think I’ve added a little more than the typical linking out post, but it could all just be coincidence.

This Week In SEO – 3/16/07

It’s Friday and that means another installment of “This Week In SEO.” Some of you may know why I specifically chose “This Week In SEO” as a name for these link posts, but I’m guessing most of you may not. The title fits naturally enough as the links are all from the week since the last post and with a few exceptions here and there will all be about something SEO related. But there’s a little more to it. I’m a very big baseball fan and grew up watching the Mel Allen show weekend mornings called “This Week In Baseball.” The reference to the show was an obvious choice for me. And now on to the links and the articles from this week in seo.

This Week In SEO – 3/9/07

Every week I’ve been more and more amazed at how many links I collect in order to bring you this post. If I’ve counted correctly I’ve gathered 45 links here. That’s after dropping about 25 additional links in an effort not to be too overwhelming. Is it a good amount of links? Would less work better? Would more be fine?

This week I’ve grouped links into four popular topics, Social Media, Blogging, Personalized and Local Search, and general Search Engine News. Any topics you’d particularly like to see covered or should I continue to group them as I have been?
