The ball dropped for the 100th time in Times Square, so I suppose that makes it official.  It’s a new year, 2008 to be exact.  So what does this mean for the search engines? Simple, change the way it used to work, right?



At least for Google, it’s right.  The leading search engine is apparently changing their algorithm to affect the way things are ranked.  Search Engine Land reported that search terms are revealing more time-sensitive articles as opposed to historical or factual pieces.  Items from Digg are ranking higher than the usual favorite Wikipedia.

So what does this mean for Google?  Perhaps they are moving towards Web 3.0?

And in other Google news…the company has lured away another Yahoo worker.  Yahoo’s Chief Performance Expert, Steve Souders will be joining Google on January 7th.  As to what he will be working on with Google is still a little bit disclosed.  So until there is word about the new algorithm or as to what Mr. Souders will be working on…it’s all simply speculation.

    The www.greatprocessservers.com website was recently experiencing a low raking with gogle. After close examination we discovered Google was lowering the rank due to 301 and 302 redirects. In addition, when we found four broken links we assumed they too were the cause for the lower or non-existent ranking. OK, heres the point, we removed the redirects and fixed the browkn links… we then waited for google to crawl the site… would you believe the site actually received a lwer ranking? Go figure…. not sure what google does or doesn’t use to rank its indexed sites but one thing for sure, its inconsistent and almost impossible to figure out. However, google adwords, google tracking and other google features have contributed to an excellent monitoring an optimization experience…. I only wish our many SEO techniques and “tricks” would receive a better ranking!
