Top 5 SEO Lists of the Week: October 4th, 2010
Friday, October 08, 2010
It seems like it was a bust week in the Search industry this week.  Of course anytime that you have a major conference taking place (SMX East 2010) you can expect some major SEO and Search related announcements. 

That being said you will notice that SMX East is featured on multiple occassions within our Top 5 SEO lists of the week.  Oh and in case you missed it, here is last week's top 5 SEO lists.

#5.  7 SEO Idiots (I Mean ‘Experts’) to Avoid - we thought that this was pretty entertaining and it has made our list for that reason.  You have to love the Bad Grammar Offshore SEO.  http://www.seo.com/blog/7-seo-experts-avoid/

#4.  Link Building Basics at SMX East - A nice reminder about the importance of link popularity with this post on the Link Building Basic session at SMX East from Debra Mastaler.  The article lists four aspects to link Popularity that you should all be aware of by now:
  • Link Quality
  • Link Quantity
  • Anchor Text
  • Relevance
Again, I personally believe that the engines place too much value of link popularity and while there are hundreds of components to the ranking algorithms, link popularity continues to be one of the most important pieces.  Regardless, these link building basics are a good reminder.

#3.  Search Marketing Expo East 2010 Conference: Day Three Coverage from Search Engine Land.  Barry Schwartz provides the lowdown on day three coverage from SMX East from New York.

#2.  6 Technical SEO Strategy Tips for Better Traffic and Rankings [Site Architecture] - SEOmoz.  Here is a nice little list of some technical things to keep in mind as you continue to refine your SEO practices.

#1.  SMX East 2010 Coverage Recap - Search Engine Roundtable always does a tremendous job with their conference coverage.  This week's SMX East 2010 coverage was no exception.  Well done Barry and his team.  Here is an extensive list of 24 sessions that they covered.  Some great detail in their coverage.  You will definitely want to take time this weekend to review this list.  Well done!
