Unfortunately some companies, especially big and successful ones like Google or Microsoft, are stubborn and prefer that the market adapt to...

Google brings back the Search API … Sort of

August 09, 2007

I found an interesting bit of information that has been missed by most of the SEO community.

In 2005 it was the infamous 302, temporary redirect page hijacking. That was supposedly fixed, according to Matt Cutts. Now there is a new interesting twist. Hijackers have found another exploitable hole in Google: the use of cgi proxies to hijack search engine rankings. The problem is basically the same. Two URLs pointing to the...

Google's architectural overview — an introduction to Google's inner workings

June 13, 2007

Google keeps tweaking its search engine, and now it is more important than ever to better understand its inner workings. Google lured Mr. Manber from Amazon last year.
