I just put up my latest blog post at SwellPath. The topic, configuring Author Rich Snippets to show up in Google, is something I’ve been infatuated with since I learned about it. Google’s aiming to put more and more focus on people (authors) and less focus on websites as their own entities. That fascinates me and I also think it’s the direction the searchable web needs to go in. [Read more…] about Author Rich Snippets: The Best Thing Since Popcorn
A week or so ago, I realized I’d been completely negligent of my bamboo plant for what must have been quite a while; its cube had been dry for some time.

There’s a rebellion on ice and you’ll pay the price
As your freedom fades away.
Dishonesty is high, so won’t you even try
To stand up for your rights and say.
We don’t want your laws. So take ‘em back right now.
They’re bullshit anyhow.
It’s time we had our say. The injustice cannot stay.

And you can feel it bleeding if your heart’s beating now.
Relax. Quality SEOs Don’t Need to Worry.
The web community is all abuzz with the news that Google is planning to penalize (in some way) sites that are “overly-optimized” for search engines. As any SEO blog will tell you, Matt Cutts of Google Web Spam fame, revealed at SXSW that Google has been working on a way to penalize sites that are too optimized for search. They plan to roll this out in the coming month(s).
As a result of this announcement, my Twitter feed is flooded with “Hold the phone SEOs. Your day is done!”. While I’m not by any means going to ignore any change in Google’s algorithms and web spam systems, I don’t believe the new Google over-optimization penalty is a concern for quality SEOs. Yes, “quality” SEOs. You can call that “whitehat” if you want.
Yep, but probably not today. Not sure that my small readership will mind the additional wait much. I do think about updating on a near-daily basis though, so never fear! A new post will be upon us soon enough.
