Hi, I've implemented a type of communication server for my clients, whereby they get a login and password, and then post messages on the server. Each time a message is posted, an email get sent out notifying everyone of the new message (much like in this forum). However, about 30% of my clients don'...

In pseudocode you would need something like this:

1. t = Read next time to update from a file
2. If time to update, then
2a. randomize your text, write this to file "randtext"
2b. write next update time to file (t + 3 hours)
3. Read and display "randtext"

The other advantage about having "-" in your domain name is that if someone links to you with: 1) Go visit 2) Go visit In the case of (1), your domain maps to keywords in the anchor text, whereas in (2) their anchor text won't help you with your keywords.

It happens sometimes --- remember that your page will be indexed when google spiders the link to your page. While google might spider one site every 3 days, that means it can take anywhere from a few seconds to 3 days to get indexed. I've also had sites/pages indexed that I never linked to, and I wo...

I don't think its that bad. If it's really what your site is about, then it's fair enough, but the SE _do_ say that whatever you don't do for your users and do only for the benefit of the SE is considered spam.

One link on a single PR 6 page could go for about $25/month as a good price, as long as there are less than 10-20 other outbound links on the page, so you should be able to get around 250/month for a PR 6 page. Bear in mind though, if you sell too many links its likely your PR will drop because your...

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by deep crawl, as Google crawls pages on a constant, on-going basis.

I think google's policy for ads is that they shouldn't be on any pages that offer no content, or on personal pages such as guestbooks.

Post Posted: January 2nd, 2004, 12:57 pm

The reason your site is picked up quickly and then disappears after a while is called Google's 'Freshbot' --- it scans the internet for new pages, and whenever there is one gives it a temporary boost to the rankings, but expect that boost to die down after a period of about 2 weeks.

It's likely not only the number of backlinks is important, but also, from how many different servers those backlinks come from. i.e., getting 1000 backlinks from one server might not be as good as getting 100 from 100 different servers.

I think that some special characters don't display correctly for search results pages on some computers/browsers. At least in my experience, rather than the special character being displayed, there's a question mark or a rectangle that gets display instead, which looks pretty bad.

Wow, thanks for the link to, I didn't realize they had a forum up! How long has that been available? That's incredibly useful, thanks!

I think depth has more of an indirect influence rather than being calculated as a particular factor by Google. I think Google is quite happy to crawl a site that is many pages deep, as long as the site has a high page rank and is linked to from many sources. For instance, a direct link from an exter...

diddo --- I'm not a fan of frames, I'd much rather scroll down the whole page rather than fiddling about with scrollbars inside scrollbars etc. Just to rehash the frames debate, I think Google is now able to navigate them (at least I see backlinks reported from pages that contain pages within frames).

Are you assuming that trading links will boost your search engine results too? Or is your motivation to share visitors? In the first case, you would most likely benefit from a slight improvement in rankings and resulting search engine traffic. In the second case, I personally wouldn't trade a link w...

Maybe they all started with the intention to draw Googly eyes in the 'oo' :lol:

I agree that Google probably uses IP addresses for websites rather than the actual server names. It makes sense if you think about it: an IP address for one is an efficient way to store a site's name, and at the same time, also lets you know which sites are stored on the same servers and potentially...

I've definately noticed geotargetting, you could email someone you know in Germany or wherever and check for you.

I'm not sure how irrelevant Google's indexing is compared to before. Google had one big problem, and that was spam in highly competitive keywords (like credit cards) where the results were quite simply terribly spammy. At least now, some results show non-profit sites that actually display informatio...

I'm interested in the DMOZ debate --- whether it makes a difference getting listed or not. I _feel_ like getting listed is a boost, because the source for the link is quite reliable and it would be pretty simple for Google to give additional weight to its anchor text. If I was a Google engineer, I w...

So here's a question: if its bad to link to a bad neighborhood, which I think its fairly safe to assume, then is it bad to link to a page that links to a bad neighborhood? Let me make this clearer and just put a few definitions up for the sake of discussion. Bad neighborhood: A website that has been...

Hi Bompa, You've got a great series of posts going on here, its much appreciated and I would also like to stick to the facts when trying to figure out what makes Google tick. Your link exchange sounds interesting. I also agree that it doesn't really matter where PR comes from, but I consider it dang...

I get most traffic from Google, but it really depends on the site. Some smaller sites get about 15% traffic and growing from repeat visitors, since I believe most traffic should ultimately be coming from people coming back for more. But, in terms of indirect hits, its: Google 87% MSN 8% Others 5% I ...

Hello everyone,

Have you all noticed Froogle yet? Google may have purposely coincided their introduction of Froogle with the advent of the now infamous Florida-update spam filters (which have recieved much criticism on the quality of search results).

Any thoughts!?
