POST is the new nofollow

POST is the new nofollow - pagerank Google has recently posted some trivia on the use of nofollowed links. I had to check the clock to make sure this wasn't one of their April fool's stunts. It's not, which is a bit scary. Matt Cutts sums it up right here in an interview with Danny Sullivan. Danny: So there’s 10 links on home page, 5 pages Nofollowed, where is that link...

Some notes on the PR update

I generally avoid reading blogs and forums at PR update time, because it generally turns into a sea of whining and Google hate from some, while those that are doing well get all smug and cocky. Either way, it's not great reading. That said, I have just done a quick roundup of my sites post-update, and made a few observations of my own. I'll...

Dude, where's my PR6?

Apologies for the second post in a row on Google PageRank. I'm not *that* fascinated by it, really. I'm one of those guys that thinks that PR / Alexa Rank is largely a dick measuring contest between you and other webmasters out there.

PageRank - Don't get too excited

I'm a bit of a sucker for the little green bar at the bottom of my screen showing the PR of the page I'm looking at. Sometimes, I catch myself reading the PR before reading the content to decide if it's trustworthy or not. I'm trying to stop myself from doing this, it's not healthy. 2 new websites Near the end of last year, I launched 2 new...
