ooh, seo

07/16/07 :: by hdunce

so today i asked engineworks why yelp.com comes up first in google when doing a search for a restaurant/etc.

2 reasons:

1) local search is easier to rank for
2) their site has a TON of user generated content
a) none of the pages are “private” so all of the pages get indexed
b) there is a lot of NEW user generated content DAILY

So, Mike, we should think about this as we are building Nesting….i think it may be a good idea to figure out a way to index some of the “private/member only/friend only” pages. For example, for CAN, but we allow some of the “subscriber only article” pages to be indexed (the title and beginning paragraph).

just some thoughts…

    The official Zune home - zune.net is finally alive, confoundingly (if you understand SEO) at the URL:
    http://www.zune.net/en-US/. In 2008 onwards, when other countries get the Zune, one presumes that we will see URLs
    such as http://www.zune.net/en-GB/, http://www.zune.net/en-AU/ etc. Anyway, the Zune team is too busy with meeting
    the deadline, so SEO is probably not even on the horizon. :(

    The site features the Zune Marketplace, another SEO-challenged site - Zune Arts (https for some reason not yet
    obvious), Zune accessories, sharing Zune tunes, events and links.

    The Zune Pass is very appealing - sign up for a free trial, or get a monthly or 3-monthly pass and you can download as
    much as you want.

    The site has many nooks and crannies worth exploring - check it out!

    guys, i have more info on this!

    Hey Kent,

    Quick question: Do some sites get indexed quicker than other sites? We posted this job today on krop.com, and it looks like Google already found it.



    Heather -

    Yes they do. The more often Google finds fresh content the more often it will spider a page. Krop updates pretty much hourly. So I’m sure Google is visiting the site a few times a day.
