Posted by willcritchlowBack when I started in this industry, it was standard advice to tell our clients that the search engines couldn’t execute JavaScript (JS), and anything that relied on JS would be effectively invisible and never appear in the index.

Both of these issues should now be fixed if you update your Firefox extensions. If ever the toolbar button doesn't work one can enable the Menu bar in Firefox, then go under the tools menu to the rank checker section to open it. Years ago we created a new logo for rank checker which we finally got around to changing it today. :) Categories: seo tools

Last August I wrote a blog post about how attention merchants were sucking the value out of online publishing. In it I noted how the Yahoo! Directory disappeared & how even DMOZ saw a sharp drop in traffic & rankings over the past few years. The concept of a neutral web is dead. In its place is agenda-driven media. Politically charged misinformed snippets. Ads cloaked as content. Public relations propaganda. Mostly correct (but politically insensitive) articles being "fact checked" where a...

When Compete.com launched with credits-based pricing well over a decade ago I felt like a kid in a candy store using their competitive research tool. Recently Compete.com announced they were shutting down, but many of the link analysis & competitive research tools which leverage scraping have also started licensing clickstream data from sources like Clickstre.am & JumpShot. These sorts of features add a lot of value to traditional keyword tools, as they can highlight the CTR on ads vs organic...
