There is no better way to create an infinite amount of duplicate content on your site than to force session IDs onto each visitor (and search engine). Typically, session IDs are used for tracking a single visitor's navigation path through the site, including the adding or removing products from the shopping cart. They are great for tracking purposes, but really, really bad for search engines and inbound linking. Ok, first of all, that's a totally crappy URL shown above, but aside from that, tacked on at the end there is the session ID. Both URLs are the same, all except the session ID. I was able to open the exact same page, with the unique ID simply by starting a new browsers session. The problem is that the session ID constitutes a completely different URL. It's not an issue for the visitor, but it is for the search engines. Since a new session ID is attached with each new visit, each time the search engine comes around they are essentially fed all new URLs. If you have only a … [Read more...] about Why Session ID’s And Search Engines Don’t Get Along (Hint: It’s a Duplicate Content Thing)

Search Engine Land has a new look and features! For our regular readers, as well as new visitors, here’s a guide to what you’ll find on the redesigned site and how everything works. New “Flip Box” For Featured Stories One of our biggest challenges is that we publish so much content that it can be hard to feature everything. On a busy news day, some great news stories and feature articles could get “pushed down” or “pushed off” our home page. Plus, some fantastic columns might be missed, given they come “below the fold” on the home page. This is where our new “flip box” comes in. You’ll find it on the home page of the site, just above our news stories: The box allows you to easily scan through a variety of stories, such as news items that are still important, even if they’re no longer breaking, recent features and analysis pieces, along with recent columns. By default, the flip box will automatically … [Read more...] about Welcome To The New Search Engine Land!
Time for the second monthly update on howSearch Engine Land is growing. As Isaid with my review of December 2006 traffic, I hope our traffic statistics willbe both interesting and also provide helpful tips to other search marketers.This review especially covers social media sites as a driver of traffic. It alsocovers the importance of thinking if you can produce "number stories" for socialmedia sites and howbeing an "untrusted" site with Google can give you the frustrating experience ofwatching references to your articles rank higher than the articles themselves. For January 2007, we had about 194,000 page views, or about 6,250 page viewsper day. Those are actually "AdViews," the number of times ads were shown asreported by our ad serving software. Overall, our views went up 109 percent fromthe previous month. Our Google Analytics reportsgave us higher figures: 227,000 page views for the month, with 141,000 visitors.It’s not uncommon for different metrics programs to give … [Read more...] about Search Engine Land: January 2007 Statistics Review

I did a search at Google today for "cars" and was shocked. Rather than list links allowing me to search for "cars" on Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, Voila, Naver and Yandex, Google instead favored its own search results. I'm glad the EU will be investigating whether this favoritism violates anti-trust laws. Consider the evidence. Here's a search on Google for cars: As you can clearly see, none of the competing search engines I've named are listed in the top results. Rather than show them, Google instead shows pages about cars that it has collected across the web using its own technology. Google's behavior like this is preventing its competitors from receiving valuable traffic, clearly something Google has done to ensure it remains dominant. I mean, consider that you can indeed search at Bing and find results for cars: But a search for "cars" at Google reveals none of this, to the searcher. It sends them directly to sites about cars! By doing so, rather than sending searchers to other search … [Read more...] about The Incredible Stupidity Of Investigating Google For Acting Like A Search Engine
