  • As a link builder I would agree with the statement of Mr. Cutts on slide #3, why should we waste our time looking after the Google algorithm. Instead we should focus on improving and developing new techniques in search engine optimization.

  • 16. Author Authority<br />Danny Sullivan: Do you try to calculate the authority of someone who tweets that might be assigned to their Twitter page. Do you try to “know,” if you will, who they are?<br />Bing: Yes. We do calculate the authority of someone who tweets. For known public figures or publishers, we do associate them with who they are. (For example, query for Danny Sullivan)<br />Google: Yes we do compute and use author quality. We don’t know who anyone is in real life :-)<br />http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html<br />http://searchengineland.com/what-social-signals-do-google-bing-really-count-55389<br />
