Google Search quality update

I’ve been reading quite a few reports about changes in Google SERPS over the last few weeks. HubPages had reported some changes and the other Search Engine Land advised that the great Google had confirmed there had indeed been an update. Telling them there “were changes to its core ranking algorithm in terms of how it […]

Some European mobile networks may block ads by default

A report in the UK’s Financial Times says that several large European mobile carriers are thinking on allowing customers to opt-in to block ads on their phones with the help of a product from Israeli company Shine. This would either be user-initiated or perhaps even a network wide block by default….I can see the list […]

[…]

Rotating Ads

Today I thought I’d look at rotating ads or anything else on your site without resorting to a full blown adserver. I’ve been a bit busy the last six months with personal life and working on some new sites, so not had much time to post anything on here. But hopefully will get something up […]

Google Authorship Dropped from Search

This is how Google Authorship showed up in search once you had linked to Google Plus.

Google have announced that they are no longer using their Google Authorship markup in search results.

Originally Google said they were going to use […]
