Google Has Removed Page Rank... Finally?

Written by L. Streete
Google has removed Page Rank from Google Webmaster tools after a long spell of telling web masters not to focus on this measurement of a website that they make available on the Google Toolbar and until recently on WMT. So its clear that Page Rank will not be a factor to base your SEO results and effectiveness on.
Two thousand and nine is well under way and we're fast approaching the halfway point. Its time I would say that if you haven't thought much about your company's activity online, then now is the time. Truly successful businesses that meet and exceed their sales targets for 2009 will be the ones that take action and invest in their online marketing strategy.

There's a new psychology to how people buy, which means the buying process has changed..!

How to exchange links with another website

Written by L. Streete

To help with your online marketing it's key when embarking on a Search Engine Optimisation program to exchange links between websites. A link from one website, A, to another website, B, is almost like a vote in the eyes of search engines.

So you might also start to think "well if thats the case im going to get as many links to my website as possible, because hey thats how presidents and prime minsters win elections, right..?"

Well with exchanging links online this is slightly different. One rule to remember before you setout on your quest to get hundreads of links, remember quality is better than quantity. For example if you were offered a link exchange from BBC.co.uk or 888.com. You would take the BBC link right? Well the not so obvious answer here is yes i would take the BBC link and run. The reason why you would do this is because the BBC website is a huge website filled with a wealth of pages that spans over a decade. Search Engines have been scanning the BBC website for years and many people have been linking to articles on their website for years and because of this the BBC website ranks very highly and holds a lot of weight with Search Engines.
