  1. shags38 vs for eCommerce - is there a difference?

    Hello, I am trying to ascertain for certain if a domain is treated differently to a domain for an eCommerce site given that all else is equal, i.e. does ccTLD hierachy come into play as far as search engines are concerned - if a domain was available in that had a suitable...

    EMD's and Hyphenated Domains

    No doubt most are aware of the recent purge on EMD's by Google. All sorts of gloom and doom was spouted at the time albeit careful reading of Matt Cutts comments said they targeted 'poor quality' sites with EMD's. In other words the spammy one pagers and the like. I myself had only recently...

    Deleting BackLinks (disavowing)

    I can only assume a couple of my sites have been hit by 'Penguin' and rightly so given the new algorithm - I have/had many thousands of links going to the sites in question from my own sites of totally unrelated subject matter. Not quite link farming but close enough as far as Google is...

    New and Original Content-eCommerce sites

    It appears Panda wants us to have fresh new and original content on our websites to rank well, or so as not to be penalized. If you have a site which is eCommerce selling widgets, aside from product description which is similar/the same except one widget is red, another blue and so on, how can...

    Keywords - How does Google measure them

    As you are probably aware I had an issue with a couple of my sites with respect to keyword density. Having tried to sort that out I have become a little bemused about (1.) what Google sees as keywords, (2.) how it determines keyword density and most importantly (3.) what influence / control a...

    Penguin hypothetical

    Say Google zapped a site through its Penguin update for excessive keyword density. Hypothetically speaking if the content of the zapped site was re-worked to be absolutely within the guidelines and the new "clean, white hat" content was then published and re-launched under a different domain...
