First Issue Of Google’s Newsletter For Librarians Released; Cutts Writes On Inverted Index & Ranking

In October, Danny blogged about Google’s “coming soon” quarterly newsletter for librarians. Today, the first issue went live. It’s available here.

I’ve posted a bit more on ResourceShelf.

The highlight of this issue is the Matt Cutts authored article on how Google crawls content and ranks results, with a very nice explanation of how an inverted index works. For some librarians and many readers of this blog, it will be familiar material. Neverthless, when Mr. Cutts writes, it’s always a great read and in this case an excellent review.
