Next, we have Philipp's post, who basically passed on the information from Barry's post.
On the same day we have a summary post by ineedhits.com that adds some useful information.
June 8 : Rene LeMerle : ineedhits : Google’s Changes to Nofollow Management Undermine PageRank Sculpting
A week later, the official explanation appeared here June 15 : Matt Cutts: Gadgets, Google, and SEO : PageRank sculpting. Rather than enlightening us, Matt gave us yet another SEO term to befuddle us: Page Rank Sculpting.
Now, I tried to read and understand this post, because I wanted to be able to pass on some useful information. However, when Matt wrote, "PageRank corresponds to the principal eigenvector of that normalized link matrix." What? AAUUUGGGHHHH!
Ten years ago, I first heard the term, search engine optimization (SEO) from a Yahoo! guru at a conference. The big thing back then was to do away with frames, add meaningful title and metatags.
Today, I am a "do follow" blogger and the only links I am not following are the ones above in this article. So what should you do? I am heading over to check the blog of my favorite SEO guru, Andy Beard.
Andy Beard : PageRank Sculpting Isn’t Dead But Comments Can Kill Your PageRank
As usual, Andy has covered the topic and has links to current information. If he can simplify the issue, he will. It is not his fault that I am still confused . . .
