SERP Attacks – Free SEO-Tool – Review

While the other half of the ZonkBros is in London at the SES-Expo currently, and hopefully soon finds a w-lan connection so we can get some feeds from this fella, I wasn’t lazy today, at least after I found this incredible tool. And I’m still not completely convinced to share it with you :-)

What do you think when you hear of something like this?

SerpAttacks is a free SEO software that you can download without paying anything . Its simply the best free seo software out there.” - Actually this is the Description of serpattacks.com

I stumbled over this piece of software where it was being advertised in a forum. Usually I’m quite sceptic about free tools offering a whole lot, such as:

  • A complete, and reliable Backlink Checker – with information such as Anchor Text, Pagerank, Follow/NoFollow, TLD and much more parameters.
  • A rank check Module which offers unlimited domains and keywords, graphs and best of all you can select specific TLD (available for Google, Bing, Yahoo, AltaVista and Ask)
  • A SERP analyzer that comes up with comprehensive Information for all domains in the top SERPs, and that rates the competition for that term.
  • A keyword tool, that uses data from Google AdWords tool, and checks uses data from Amzaon Products and Click Bank to determine the value of a specific niche. This tools also finds free domains.
  • A PPC-Fetcher for unlimited keywords working in almost every county.
  • A Page Content Helper Module
  • And much more

But since I’m curious it tried the software with a throw-away e-mail address… Read the rest of SERP Attacks – Free SEO-Tool – Review »

So if you plan to get into this business, or are just curious how buying domains can work out for you – check this article by Hyder Media.

New Google PageRank Formula

ZonkBros is back with worthful information for any SEO.  Google is going to change his PageRank formula to enforce spam in the SERPS. The new Patent was to Google til May 11 2010 for “Ranking documents based on user behavior and/or feature data”. There is a Post by Bill Slawski, a huge list of Google patents including the PageRank formula.

The key changes in the formula:

  • Every link is weighted according to how likely a “reasonable surfer” would be to click on that link. To estimate that, Google considers a number of factors, which boil down to 2 main categories:
    • link visibility (placement and appearance)
    • link relevance

Now, it will be harder to place small text links in page footers, forums or blog comments. All of these links will be weak , they will not bring much PageRank juice as they did before the change. It is going to be harder for spammers. Google is trying to provide more high qualitiy results. To pass PageRank, the link now has Read the rest of New Google PageRank Formula »

ZonkBros Ressources of the Day (01/20/2011)

Welcome back to our resources of the day. It’s been quite some time but now we are back with some great articles:

The first article is a must read for every copy writer/editor who’s in any way involved in online publishing. Even though this article has quite a confusing title it is about how to write for search engines as well as for real people.

Blind Five Year Old – Stop writing for people

The second article is a little bit off-topic, but for everyone who hasn’t heard about this. Again this show that (from an information security perspective) still too many people don’t care about protecting sensitive personal information enough in this digital world. It is about a guy from the US who used information gathered from Facebook to solve the security question of several e-mail accounts and then searched those e-mail accounts for nude pictures:

Facebook used to get to nude e-mail photos

As the title of this post already indicates this post shows some up-to-date number about the internet. People who like statistics will love this:

Redirect and Canonical HTML coding

Guide- How to deal with Duplicate Content different solutions. This great article was published by Ben Jarriola at SEOmoz.

Alternate Link Tag –  Meta Robots
Canonical Link Tag –  301 Redirect –  Robots.txt

  • Alternate Link Tag
    • International pages, multilingual pages, intended for different countries.
  • Canonical Link Tag
    • Multiple categories and subcategories with different category paths, but the same content.
      Example:

      http://www.example.com/products/laptops/sony/

      http://www.example.com/products/sony/laptops/

    • Tracking codes, Session IDs mainly because redirection sometimes interferes with the functionality of the tracking codes and sessions.
      Example:

      http://www.example.com/path/file.php?SID=BG47JF448JD6I7TGF439LVFD476

      http://www.example.com/path/file.php?utm_whatever=5uck3rs

      http://www.example.com/path/file.php

    • Different variable orders due to how some CMS platforms are created.
      Example:

      http://www.example.com/path/file.php?var1=x&var2=y

      http://www.example.com/path/file.php?var2=y&var1=x

  • 301 Redirect
    • Cases where a redirection does not bother the user experience such as www and non-www, index files, trailing slashes, hosting IP address.
      Example:

      http://www.example.com/

      http://example.com/

      http://www.example.com/index.html

      http://www.example.com

      http://123.123.123.123/

    • Domain changes, and URL changes of pages that no longer exist.
      Example:
      http://www.example.com/old_folder/old_file 301 redirects to http://www.example.com/new-folder/new-file/
      http://www.example.net/ 301 redirects to http://www.example.com/

  • Meta Robots NoIndex/Follow
    • Probably the best place to use this is in a list of archived post, such as a blog. Where the main URL of the individual blog post or the permalink may have content that is posted as a duplicate somewhere in the archive view by date, the category view, the author view, tag topic views, or in the pagination of older blog post from the blog homepage. You cannot really do a 301 redirect, nor do a canonical link tag since these pages may have more than 1 blog post listed and you will have to finalized where the 301 redirect should go or where the canonical link tag should point to. Thus I would take my chances using the Meta Robots tag, NoIndex,Follow, and hopefully all the links still help.
  • Robots.txt
    • I no longer see a need to use robots.txt in duplicate content issues. The natural linking is something too precious to lose. Just use robots.txt to really block of content that does not need to be indexed at all, duplicate content or not.
