I would like to congratulate the Techcrunch team for finally coming to the realization that linking to sponsors within posts, without using nofollow on the links might be in violation of Google’s Webmaster guidelines.
I have opened up the voting for the second round of my cash giveaway for WordPress plugin authors.
Nominations for the Best WordPress Plugin each month are made by my readers, and half my income from paid reviews is given away as donations to help support development costs of the best WordPress plugins.
For those that don’t know, “supplemental results” are the bane of search engine optimization specialists.
Here is a great explanation of supplemental results from Rockyfied
Google Supplemental Results: Google supplemental results take pages on your site that have been indexed and put them into a sub database in Google. Supplemental results do not rank well but rather Google uses its supplemental DB to populate its results when they donâ€™t have enough results to show in a given query. This means pages on your site in Googleâ€™s supplemental DB will not help you in the serps.
I earn money from this blog, but as I have hinted in the past, that isn’t my primary goal. I write paid reviews for products that take a fair amount of time, but nothing compared to the amount of time WordPress plugin authors spend on their creations, only to give them away for free and often still provide support.
