Roundup Thursday for the Week of 9/7/08

SEO digest

Stories, news, and other notable items from the past week:

Three star links:

Four star links:

  • Here's an interesting article about using pricing as an indicator of quality. I'd see way crappier movies in the theater if they were only a couple of bucks. (Okay, I'm lying. I already see crappy movies in the theater. Disposable income FTW!)
  • Willy Franzen conducted a job search experiment on Facebook, where he used advertising to help college students look for jobs. It's an interesting article and provides a lot of unexpected takeaways.

Five star links:

  • Rob Dubbin from the Washington Post abstains from using Google for an entire weekend. His experience is amusing and pretty eye opening to how easily we can depend on the search giant, not just to look stuff up, but for email, mapping, videos...yikes.

YOUmoz entries:

Best of YOUmoz:

  • Uh Oh, Made Google Drop an 'O'. Oh noes, Identity broke the Google!
  • Link Building Notes of an SEO Kindergartner. Pritham Barhate knocks it out of the park with his first YOUmoz entry. He went through every blog post on SEOmoz that was categorized under "link building" and created a document of link building tactics pulled from the posts. It's a great resource--thanks, Pritam!

New events added to the Events Calendar:

  • UK SEO Seminar/Workshop October 3 at the Clarendon Centre in Brighton, East Sussex, UK. The workshop is being hosted by Fresh Egg, the SEO company I interned for about two years ago. Ammon Johns and Lee Colbran are both great guys and knowledgeable SEOs, so if you can attend their seminar I highly recommend it. :)
