Excerpt: I added some new tools to this blog.  Not all of it is the mundane "link bait" you see on most SEO web sites.  Some of it is kind of neat.  Here's what I have so far:1. View HTTP Headers - This one is pretty boring, but it's the first one I created while figuring out how to hack WordPress to wrap the scripts in the theme I use.2. View HTTP Path - Once I got more daring, I wrote a script that examines a URL, follows any redirects, then shows the path to get to the final destination.  Looking…

Excerpt: This is a summary of the videos located at http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/video-reinclusion-requests/ and http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/video-tips-for-ses-san-jose-2006/ titled "Video: Reinclusion requests," and "Video: Tips for SES San Jose 2006," respectively.  The latter is dated August 7, 2006.Note: As before, my opinions are in italics to indicate where I'm expressing an opinion, not citing Matt. In the first video, Matt discusses reinclusion requests.  He has a previous post here regarding the topic, but he asserts his recommendations have changed somewhat since that post.So what does Matt currently recommend you do when you think you have been penalized by Google for spamming?  He recommends using Google Webmaster…

Excerpt: By way of Search Marketing Standard's blog post here, I came across the article titled Natural-Born Search Killers by Rob Garner.  It points out that as the web matures, web designers and programmers are increasingly faced with more redesigns and fewer designs from scratch.  Everyone knows that flash and hidden text blight search engine optimization efforts.  Little attention is ever given, however, to the fact that URLs acquire value over time, and the fact that not factoring this into a redesign can mean literally tossing equity into the garbage.  And redesigns frequently entail changing URLs.  He calls this concept "Link…

Excerpt: This is a summary of the videos located at http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/another-two-videos/ titled "Another two videos," and dated August 3, 2006.  Note: As before, my opinions are in italics to indicate where I'm expressing an opinion, not citing Matt. 1) All IPs in a particular data center should typically report results similar to the rest of the IPs in that IP block.  But … 2) Even if you hit a given IP address in a particular data center, you may be subject to a load balancer that sends you to an entirely different data center.  This is "somewhat rare," but he says…

Excerpt: RSnake of ha.ckers.org documents in this post how to conveniently obtain all the subdomains of a domain using a search engine.  This can help you isolate some spammers.  He later says " … wouldn’t it be nice if we could somehow get access to all the IP address to hostname maps?"  I agree, and here is a partial solution to that request leveraging a search engine — this time MSN Search.  Use the "IP" command to find all hosts located on a certain IP address like follows:IP:xxx.xxx.xxx.1You can join them to locate all hosts located on a range of…

Excerpt: Matt Cutts has a blog filled with lots of good stuff, and lots of boring stuff.  Even some of the SEO stuff is mundane and basic, so I decided I'd filter it out and enumerate the gems from his new videos.  Unfortunately, though Matt's videos are super cool and employ totally cool special effects and props, they are sadly not indexable.  This should help, and covers everything up to "Vidyo" on August 1, 2006.  Here they are:Note: My opinions are in italics to indicate where I'm expressing an opinion, not citing Matt. 1.

This is just a friendly reminder that once a month I'll be dissecting the architecture of 1-2 sites that readers submit and doing a formal report.  It's free as long as you don't mind me posting the report.  I'll be picking the site at the end of this week.  Click here for the details.

Excerpt: Matt Cutts reaffirmed his distaste for cloaking in his most recent videos over here.  However, I still fail to see a problem with cloaking used ethically, and every time I think of an ethical use I post it on this blog.Chris Boggs posts here that he implemented load-balancing for a web site via round-robin DNS.  The problem is that this solution yields the same problem as mirroring a site.  And if you think about it, it's basically the same thing — except that the mirror selected is random.  Typically, instead of a user clicking a link to get to the…
