After 109 of monitoring, EJHost.com has a 99.97% rate of uptime.
While this sounds great, we want to improve to 99.999% uptime. The only “outage” we had was due to server hang, and not a real outage. However, we’ll count it against us.
Over the next 109 days, we’re striving for 100%.
Stay tuned and keep watch on our uptime at Web Hosting Review.
I recently stumbled upon a well written and very interesting article about some recent SEO sob stories. Most of the issues center around excessive links, paid links, linking through keywords, and not using the rel=”nofollow” tag when displaying paid links. Essentially, Google came up with a way to tweak their algorithm to devalue link farming and excessive linking that do not use the rel=”nofollow” attribute properly.
The article is well written, detailed, and very interesting to those in the digital advertising sector; written by the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard University .
Google’s public stance has always been to use the rel=”nofollow” attribute when you do not want the link to contribute to the link’s PR. This is yet another reason to use a reputable SEO firm and don’t rely on companies who improve your SERP by excessive reciprocal and back linking.
As always, make sure you understand what you are doing! and why you are doing it!
Google released approximately 500 updates to its search engine algorithm in February, according to the official Google blog..
The aim was to filter out websites who had low quality repetitive content, such as aggregate websites. Sites that contain high quality fresh new content will be rewarded even more in their search engine results.
This is definitely something that has been known for a long time, but its good to see Google proactively taking steps to banish these low quality cheap repetitive websites to the bottom of the results, where they belong.
