      Your chance to put your best foot forward
      rethink | redesign | results

    • Evolution:
      Key Advances in Google Search
      Backrub[September 1997]This search engine, which had run on Stanford’s servers for almost two years, is renamed Google. Its breakthrough innovation: ranking searches based on the number and quality of incoming links.
      New Algorithm[August 2001]The search algorithm is completely revamped to incorporate additional ranking criteria more easily.
      Local Connectivity Analysis[February 2003]Google’s first patent is granted for this feature, which gives more weight to links from authoritative sites.
      Fritz[Summer 2003]This initiative allows Google to update its index constantly, instead of in big batches.
      Personalized Results[June 2005]Users can choose to let Google mine their own search behaviour to provide individualized results.
      Bigdaddy[December 2005]Engine update allows for more-comprehensive Web crawling.
      Universal Search[May 2007]Building on Image Search, Google News, and Book Search, the new Universal Search allows users to get links to any medium on the same results page.
      Real-Time Search[December 2009]Displays results from Twitter and blogs as they are published.

    • SEO with WordPress
      “If you do everything on WordPress you’re pretty much automatically covered as far as SEO”
      • Matt Cutts, Head of the Webspam Team at Google.
      (PubCon 2007)

    • Advantages of a WordPress Website:
      Search-friendly URLs -- that are spider-friendly and tend to be indexed and ranked better in search engines than the complex, dynamic-looking URLs that are typical of content management systems
      Tag Clouds -- which provide keyword-rich text link navigation, which link to...
      Tag Pages -- which contain excerpts of posts/pages that are related (by the fact they have the same tag in common)
      RSS feeds -- which help with link building and garner you visibility in the feed/blog search engines like Feedster and Google Blog Search
      Content-rich, search-friendly HTML -- thanks in part to the presentation layer (usually) being cleanly separated from the content layer, along with semantic mark-up, which gives the search engines good clues as to what copy is important and what is not
      Visitor participation -- through comments, trackbacks, and pingbacks.
      Post-dating of content -- to automatically "go live" on a scheduled date
      Ease of maintenance -- with no, or minimal, HTML skills required
      Extensibility -- through plugins (it's pretty easy to write your own) and direct hacks to the open source PHP codebase.
