social media: Search Engine Question and Answer - 11/13/07 05:41 AM
After spending a lot of time at AR and other real estate forums and blogs I see a lot of questions about SEO and search engine marketing. I see quite a few unique questions but I also see a lot of questions asked over and over again. The problem with AR and other fast moving sites is that a lot of information is buried and that leads to the same questions being asked and answered more than once. What I would like to do is set up this post as a place to ask any Search related questions you have. I … (6 comments)

social media: Let Your Voice Be Heard - 10/12/07 02:55 AM

social media: Squidoo Spanked by Google - 07/12/07 02:27 AM
It looks like the infiltration of spammers at Squidoo has caught up with them. I read a post at Search Engine Land discussing Jason Calacanis efforts to out Squidoo as a source for SPAM. It appears that his efforts worked and Squidoo was hit with a penalty. They started to lose rankings and it looks like their lenses are no longer passing any PR. I just received an email from Squidoo discussing this issue and how they are going to combat it. Hopefully that can work the issue out because IMO it is a neat service. Unfortunately the way it worked … (13 comments)
