SEO: Week In Review

SEO: Week In Review

I haven’t had much time this week to check my normal sites for fresh articles and stories in SEO, so I thought I’d do a recap and share what I found in the thirty four minutes I had to write this post. Below are some of the top stories and fresh content out there on the web. Feel free to add your own to the list!

Google’s Matt Cutts wrote this week on his blog, and his post got to the first page of Digg (not a first, surprise surprise). GreyHat SEO’s Michael Gray wrote in his post “Did Matt Cutts Expose a Hole in Digg?” about Cutts actions. I think Gray is right, this must be a test for Google in some way or another…..note to self.7-days-of-the-week
Check out Rand Fishkin’s “Rewriting the Beginner’s Guide Part X: Measuring and Tracking Success”. He answers a lot of beginner’s questions in this article, a very good resource to pass on. He also wrote this week about what he’d tell his 2007 self. One of those posts that makes you go hmmmm.
This piece gave me a little laugh. Check out LaLaWag.com’s fall lineup on Twitter; my favorite is “Neil Patel in SEO CSI”.
Many questions answered this week:
Can BuzzStream help your link building campaign?
What is Google Wave? And the Twitter extension Twave? Get a complete guide from Mashable.
Heard of MSN’s new search engine Bing? And how it affects Google, Yahoo, and others.
What did Todd Malicoat from Stuntdubl.com say on WebmasterRadio this week? Btw: another great resource!
How can you move beyond just getting more links?
How can you secure your WordPress blog? Check out Code in WP’s post..
Again, feel free to add to our list. Just leave a comment below!
