Google Link Buying Warning Update

February 27th, 2013 by John Prendergast

Google has said for years that selling links that pass PageRank violates their quality guidelines. They have issued updated guidance to help remind site owners and webmasters of that policy:

Please be wary if someone approaches you and wants to pay you for links or “advertorial” pages on your site that pass PageRank. Selling links (or entire advertorial pages with embedded links) that pass PageRank violates our quality guidelines, and Google does take action on such violations. The consequences for a linkselling site start with losing trust in Google’s search results, as well as reduction of the site’s visible PageRank in the Google Toolbar. The consequences can also include lower rankings for that site in Google’s search results. (more…)

COOKIES, compliance and EU law

May 25th, 2012 by John Prendergast

On May 26th 2011 a new EU regulation came into effect that requires website owners in the EU to obtain informed consent from visitors before they can store or retrieve any information on a computer or any other web connected device. This is now law in member states and is currently in the news as the 12 month grace period for compliance in the UK has now come to an end.

Very simply the regulation means that you need to alert users to any Cookies you are using on your website and get them to consent to their use. What are cookies? – Also known as browser cookies or tracking cookies, cookies are small, often encrypted text files, located in browser directories. They are used by us to help our users navigate this website efficiently and perform certain functions.

Flight Search

September 14th, 2011 by aonachadminu

Google has finally unveiled an early look at it’s Fight search Google.com/flights. Although it’s currently only serving a portion of the US airports it is a really interesting insight into their ongoing focus on the travel sector.

The speed is impressive and is a clear signal that Google is serious about speed as a usability issue.

Google flight search

They have focused on two consumer purchasing triggers for one of the filter options – Price and Duration of flights and have come up with an interesting approach.

Combining this with their Hotel Finder they are shaping up to a serious force in online travel. Is this a threat or an opportunity?
