Showing linkdata, but not PageRank

Barry over at Search Engine Roundtable covered my greasemonkey script for external links, and in the comments, Michael Martinez said: Why in the world would anyone want to look at Toolbar PageRank with live link data from Google Webmaster’s link tool? That’s like saying, “Give me old, poisoned mayonnaise with my fresh turkey sandwich”. And…

Google Webmaster Tools on steroids

I love Google Webmaster Tools, especially when it started showing external links. This link overview left me and quite a lot of other SEO’s longing for more though, as we all wanted more info on that page. I have now created a Greasemonkey script to show the PageRank of the page linking to you, and…

Yahoo SiteExplorer suggestion

This Yahoo SiteExplorer suggestion needs some votes. It basically suggests adding an option to just show 1 link from each domain. I commented below that it would make sense to add in the results somewhere “and 1,000 other links from this domain”, but I agree that being able to filter out all the sitewides would…

Personal search history creeping into SERPs

Search engine land has an article today on Google ramping up personalized search. Well I saw something news today related to that as well: Google showed me, when I was logged in, how often I’d visited a site from the SERPs, and showed the time of my last visit. Have a look at the screenshot,…

One thing annoyed me though: some folks kept whining that AdWords was getting more expensive every year… What annoys me most is this:…

DMOZ and Wikipedia: how it should work

Contrary to the popular saying “DMOZ is dead”, I think it’s not. That combined with the recent Wikipedia nofollow debate made me think. Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia. DMOZ, or the Open Directory Project is “the largest, most comprehensive human-edited directory of the Web”. An encyclopedia should contain references to other articles in that encyclopedia,…

PageRank update, some PR6′s added

I got notified by a post on SEO Roundtable that another (or still the same) PR update was going on. So far it seems that css3 . info has become PR6, as well as it’s blog, which rocks of course! Seems like all pages younger than 1.5 years or so are having their update now…

Live search asking stupid questions

Ok, bashing on Live is easy perhaps, but this example is so typical of why I hate the engine… If you’ve been reading my blog somewhat longer you know that one of my domains which I use a lot in examples is www.css3.info. Just a decent domain, with a pretty good amount of backlinks considering…
