Robots Have Never Been So Cool! (.txt)

This is the most fun article I've read in a while, and I even learnt a thing or two!

Should be required reading for any and every SEO out there, I see far too many people (even on disallowing areas of the website in the hopes of removing it from search results... it's just not the case!

I also learnt that Google doesn't adhere to crawl delay in robots.txt just a few weeks too late...

Worth a read, even just for the funny examples!

Google's Twitter 'firehose' turning back on!?

Last time Google had access to crawl Twitter tweets (aka the 'firehose'), Twitter was supposed to be a ranking factor in Google's ranking algorithm...

Could that be the case this time??

A study by +Alan Coleman of ecommerce sites finds that the Google Analytics time on site and pages per visit metrics positively correlate with #conversionrate .

This is pretty awesome information if you're looking for important metrics to be improving with your on-site content or SEO changes.

The study also finds the influence of a mobile site; even for pre-purchase decision making, as well as finding no correlation with low bounce rate and conversions.
