This can be incredibly valuable as it will allow you to know whether or not your or your competitor’s second page listing is vulnerable because it is actually in position 10, or...

New Link Atrophy Diagnosis Tool

Hey folks, I am going to do my best to keep these SEO tools rolling out this week in advance of Pubcon Dallas, where I will be giving a solo session on advanced white hat techniques.

Poor Attempt at Cloaking: Exhibit #1

Generally speaking, if you are going to try to do geo-targeting via IP address, you might want to make sure something like this happens… Now this prime ranking position in Google is not only drawing the attention of Google’s spam team, but it is also keeping would-be subscribers from clicking on what appears to be a page specifically for Mountain View, California, home of “the Google”.
