I use Google for a lot of searching every day, I am sure more than 95% of casual users. I am not talking about checking ranking, as things like that can be automated with Google’s APis and various tools. When I need to find information, I use Google Search.
I have seen Google suggest other related terms to try such as this, which appears at the bottom of a page when I search for “insurance”.
The Google Related terms normally look something like this:-

Google Pagerank updates are weird

I am sure lots of webmasters are monitoring their pagerank updates currently, and sometimes how they happen can be quite weird. The toolbar representation doesn’t mean much for search traffic, as the pagerank stored on the datacenters is always up to 3 months ahead of that dispalyed in the toolbar. It is however useful for monetization in various ways, and an ego thing, as I pointed out in my first article on the recent Pagerank updates.

Google Hiccup

For a few days I have noticed a small hiccup in my SERPs on Google, especially relating to my theories on how Google treat tags.

It seems it was Google just juggling numbers, because not only were terms such as “WordPress Training” not showing my tag page near the top, but also terms such as “WordPress Trademark” had disappeared completely.
