Few Useful Links

This article answers all the common mishaps with duplicate content – http://www.seomoz.org/blog/duplicate-content-in-a-post-panda-world

I’ve always thought that not enough attention was paid to a well written meta description, those in PPC go into detail about their ad descriptions to make sure they have the best possible chance of a click through and always thought SEO’s should do this on meta descriptions, maybe this tool will help…

Finally, I’m still getting to grips with the new Google Analytics interface but seems you could add some pretty detailed dashboards.

RIP Yahoo Site Explorer

without comments

Yahoo Site Explorer is no more! This is the tool which all SEO’s grew up using and was an excellent tool for those involved in link building. However, in recent years it has fell by the wayside with the introduction of tools such as Majestic SEO and SEOmoz’s Open Site Explorer tool.

When I started in SEO 5 years ago I would have been lost doing off-page optimisation without Yahoo Site Explorer, even so much that I still recently recommend client’s to this tool if they want a basic view of the link profile of a website. Client’s don’t want to be confused with MozRank, MozTrust etc….

Anyway, great tool back in the day and considering I’ve not used it in over a year I won’t miss it in the immediate future.
