SEO Experiments  - 
 
In the category "ridiculous SEO advice", a developer told me today that his SEO strategy is to open his site in chrome and spend 3 hours a day hitting the F5 button (reloading the page) every day to improve his rankings :-D Whats the most idiotic thing you've heard anyone say in regards to SEO?

Sorry for the sacrilege as this is an SEM question ;-) Has anyone ever noticed a difference between (in the settings tab of an AdWords campaign) setting the target location to city Y in country X and excluding everything apart from city Y in country X? In theory there should be no difference but I've heard weird examples of it not being as straight forward as that. Any thoughts welcome!

I am looking at an account where the advertiser has targeted 50 km around his Melbourne location and I am on the fringes of his target zone. I can't see the ad in Google and his AdWords interface is telling me that the ad isn't showing because "your ads are set to show only to users in the locations you've chosen". He had also set a list of locations to not show the ad. IP addresses in Australia are fluid (compared to the US) and being too precise can hide your ads from your audience.

Hey all! I was wondering if anyone has some interesting examples to share about the following. We all know that optimising titles/descriptions/H1 headers is a standard part of our work. When a site is ranking quite well for a large set of keywords, have you ever seen examples of optimisation (even if the title/description is better) having an initially bad effect? In short, if the rankings aint broke, does it still make sense to improve the titles/description? Or better leave the delicate balance untouched and not risk an initial change in rankings? Curious about your experiences! Thanks!

As long as your CTR, Bounce Rate, and Conversion Rate are performing great, then H1 and Meta shouldn't matter changing or keeping the same (providing your using the same keyphrase). If the call to action and benefit are getting people to click on your link, then ranking doesn't mean much.

Hangouts on Air  - 
 
Hi everyone, Max Minzer and I are hosting an SEO hangout tomorrow. It should be an interesting one as we will be discussing the fine line between what is and what isnt seen as a paid link. Quite an interesting topic I think, all are welcome to join!

Ex Google webspam fighter, currently in the SEO business and living the good life in Sydney.
Introduction
Please note that some of the opinions I give are based on my work experience, but they are personal and may not represent my ex employer's viewpoint or current policies. 

I am a carbon based life form, made out of water for 70%. living on a small piece of rock that is exactly as far away from my sun to support the conditions my kind likes best. I like it here, there's something in the air...

Apart from that, Mr. Tom Waits sums me up pretty well;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo4Y0TxW41g

When I'm lyin' in my bed at night
I don't wanna grow up
Nothin' ever seems to turn out right
I don't wanna grow up
How do you move in a world of fog
That's always changing things
Makes me wish that I could be a dog
When I see the price that you pay
I don't wanna grow up
I don't ever wanna be that way
I don't wanna grow up

Seems like folks turn into things
That they'd never want
The only thing to live for
Is today
I'm gonna put a hole in my TV set
I don't wanna grow up
Open up the medicine chest
And I don't wanna grow up
I don't wanna have to shout it out
I don't want my hair to fall out
I don't wanna be filled with doubt
I don't wanna be a good boy scout
I don't wanna have to learn to count
I don't wanna have the biggest amount
I don't wanna grow up

Well when I see my parents fight
I don't wanna grow up
They all go out and drinking all night
And I don't wanna grow up
I'd rather stay here in my room
Nothin' out there but sad and gloom
I don't wanna live in a big old Tomb
On Grand Street

When I see the 5 o'clock news
I don't wanna grow up
Comb their hair and shine their shoes
I don't wanna grow up
Stay around in my old hometown
I don't wanna put no money down
I don't wanna get me a big old loan
Work them fingers to the bone
I don't wanna float a broom
Fall in love, get married then boom
How the hell did I get here so soon?!
I don't wanna grow up
Bragging rights
I eat, drink, sleep, laugh, irritate, climb, fly and travel.

Quite a poor experience, the prices are high, I ordered a fillet beef and got a chewy piece of rump, filled with hard fat. The rice was overcooked, miso soup was watered down, starters dripping with fat. Wont be coming back to this place, selling fast food level cooking at premium prices.
