WWW.WEBSEOCHANNELS.COM<br />Twitter Data<br />Danny Sullivan: If an article is retweeted or referenced much in Twitter, do you count that as a signal outside of finding any non-nofollowed links that may naturally result from it?<br />Google: Yes, we do use it as a signal.

  • 54. WWW.WEBSEOCHANNELS.COM<br />From the Mouths of Googlers<br />Wired.com: How do you recognize a shallow-content site? <br />Singhal: (W)e asked the raters questions like: “Would you be comfortable giving this site your credit card? Would you be comfortable giving medicine prescribed by this site to your kids?”<br />Cutts: (Using) a rigorous set of questions, everything from. “Do you consider this site to be authoritative? Would it be okay if this was in a magazine? Does this site have excessive ads?”<br />Singhal: And based on that, we basically formed some definition of what could be considered low quality. <br />http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/03/the-panda-that-hates-farms/all/1<br />
  • 55. WWW.WEBSEOCHANNELS.COM<br />From the Mouths of Googlers<br />Wired.com: But how do you implement that algorithmically?<br />Cutts: I think you look for signals that recreate that same intuition, that same experience that you have as an engineer and that users have. <br />Singhal: You can imagine in a hyperspace a bunch of points, some points are red, some points are green, and in others there’s some mixture. Your job is to find a plane which says that most things on this side of the place are red, and most of the things on that side of the plane are the opposite of red.<br />http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/03/the-panda-that-hates-farms/all/1<br />
