Search Engine Forums Spotlight
Lobby group to challenge search engine practices
"Sounds like sour grapes that the free ride ended when the Internet graduated into a real advertising arena and GASP companies started charging. Imagine that, people trying to make a living by earning money. ... Those, those... capitalists!"
Why did you buy from X site and not Y?
"I do click on adwords when looking for products. The other day I was looking for atomic clocks. If someone searches for that (and it came up as atomic clocks in the ad - not just clocks) - take me to the page on atomic clocks - not your main page."
Untapped industries that would benefit from SEO
"Everyone around here keeps talking about niches that you can do really well in, but what are they?"
Google Toolbar 2.0
"I can see this toolbar situation, starting an arms race of sorts, due to its default search condition on the browser, and the ability to bundle user experience tools. Interesting."
Is Yahoo holding a trump card?
"On the surface it looks as if Yahoo is playing catch up- But look a little closer an you'll see that Yahoo is chasing a different strategy, and is far ahead of their competition."
Hi, I'm new AND have a newbie question!
"...if you can optimize those inner pages, using unique content and keyphrases to each, you've increased your chances of making more sales."
PPC bid management software - Criteria please!
"I have determined what MY criteria for this software is, but I am curious of what others may feel is important."
