Search Engine Forums Spotlight: February 15, 2008

What’s going on in the search industry? Find out here, with these links to some of the latest topics being discussed in our own Search Engine Watch Forums, and other search marketing forums across the Web:

SES New York City 2008 – Parties and Events
Search Engine Watch Forums
“Keep up-to-date with the latest plans from Becky Ryan, the new ‘Party & Events Moderator’ of Search Engine Strategies.”

No Follow: Do You Follow?
Search Engine Watch Forums
“The biggest problem with nofollow is that it’s an attribute without a standard. Nobody knows exactly how the search engines treat it and I’m not sure if the folks at the SEs themselves can pin it down.”

Optimizing Flash in 2008
Cre8asite Forums
“Bottom line, there is still no method to optimize Flash to compete with HTML.”

Optimizing a Page for Multiple Keywords
High Rankings Forum
“Your home page should not be attempting to do everything for your site, and it certainly should not be optimized for every single keyword that one might put into a search engine to find what you offer.”

AdWords Content Network – The Wish List
Search Engine Watch Forums
“Share your wish list, it’s been guaranteed that it will be seen by Google.”

Pay Per Performance SEO
High Rankings Forum
“Has anyone ever worked on a pay-per-performance basis with SEO? How does such a structure work? What percentage of the sale is typical?”

Wordtracker vs. Keyword Discovery
Cre8asite Forums
“I’ve been an avid user of WordTracker for years, but now my subscription has expired I’m wondering if I should try Keyword Discovery or something else. What do you use and why?”

Managing a Team of Link Builders
Search Engine Watch Forums
“In terms of managing a link building team, what you put into it is what you get, and it all depends on what type of link building you’re doing.”

Revising a Quoted Price for a Site
Cre8asite Forums
“The client asked you for a quote on ‘X’ work. You provided that. If the client now comes back and says he needs a quote on ‘X’ + ‘Y,’ its pretty fair to assume the client is expecting to pay more for the additional work.”
