Update On Search Ranking Factors List

Earlier I posted how Rand Fishkin had created a list of nearly 100 factors that search engines might consider in ranking web pages. I also wished there was a way for everyone to contribute and rate the factors. Now he's working to let a small number of people vote and contribute to refine the list, then he's going to do a revision. He explains more here. Postscript: Previously I had a link to the voting page that Rand's using for his small focus group. I pulled it down, because he didn't intend for everyone to get to use it.
